The wisdom of age = failing hormones. Mystic effort is joy for the same reason it’s unnecessary…joy and pain (frustration).


The News

95021-1
FOR THEIR FAMILY REUNION,
INSTEAD OF TURKEY & DRESSING,
ONE MAN BROUGHT THE MESSAGE THAT: “WE’RE ALL DUMB AS SHIT & GONNA DIE”, YET SOME OF THEM STILL ASKED IF HE WAS SURE-E-E HE DIDN’T HAVE SOME GIBLETS IN HIS POCKET.
* * *
GENETICS MAY RUN, BUT THEY CAN’T HIDE! DUE TO THE FACT THAT THEY CAN’T RUN. ….(“OH YEAH!?”, SNEERED A COUSIN,
“THEN HOW’D YOU GET THAT GRAVY ALL OVER YOUR VEST!?”)
* * *
95021-2
LIFE,
BEING NON LINEAR,
MAN INVENTED REALITY & IMPOSED IT THEREON TO MAKE IT SEEM SO. …AND DAMN IF IT DIDN’T WORK!
95021-3
WERE IT NOT FOR BASIC 87 OCTANE, NO ONE’S CAR WOULD RUN, AND COULD NOT HIGHER COMBUSTIBLE LEVELS BE PRODUCED, THERE COULD BE NO RACING MACHINES,
ALL GRADES OF GASOLINE COME FROM THE SAME SOURCE,
SAME AS ALL HUMAN THOUGHT ARISES FROM A COMMON WELL –
– THE MATTER THEN BECOMES: TO WHAT DEGREE WILL YOU REFINE YOURS!?
* * *
FURTHER NOTE TO THOSE WISHING TO “BLUE-PRINT” THEIR ENGINE:
FOR OPTIMUM EFFICIENCY, YOUR FUEL SHOULD BE, NON-STICKY
* * *
95021-4
TONIGHT’S USEFUL MYTH & ATTENDANT QUIZ
IN RETURN FOR HIM HAVING ONCE PICKED SOME UNSAVORY LOCAL CONDITIONS FROM ITS PAW,
LIFE OFFERED A CERTAIN MAN A CERTAIN CHOICE: 
HE COULD EITHER: NEVER EVEN HAVE THE ITCH “TO KNOW”,
(AND THUS BE SPARED ANY POSSIBLE DISAPPOINTMENT, OR AGGRAVATION),
OR HE COULD GO AHEAD AND HAVE THAT EXTRAORDINARY URGE, & TAKE HIS CHANCES,
Now IF YOU WERE THE MAN IN THE STORY, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE?
(IN SOME LANDS, WHEN CHILDREN DON’T LIKE THE BEDTIME TALES THEY’RE TOLD, THEY’RE SHOVED UP UNDER THE MATTRESS TO SPEND THE NIGHT! [OR UNTIL THEY, COME-TO-THEIR-LITTLE-SENSES!] — SO YOU BETTER BE CAREFUL HOW YOU ANSWER.)

95021-5
NEWS FROM THE NEURAL COURT
AFTER THE KING HEARD THE PROPOSITION THAT:
“ATTACKING THE CRIPPLED SIMPLY KEEPS THEM UPRIGHT.”, HE STOPPED CENSURING HIS THOUGHTS.
* * *
NEWS FROM JUST AROUND THE BLOCK
ONE MAN WOULD KEEP TRACK OF HIS “GREAT IDEAS” ONLY UNTIL THE DRUGS RAN OUT.
* * *
95021-6
THE TOTALITY OF EVER-ACTIVE, OMNIPRESENT, OMNI-DIRECTIONAL LIFE, BEING TOO EXPANSIVE FOR ORDINARY AWARENESS TO COMPREHEND, IT CUTS THE FORMER INTO DISCRETE, SEQUENTIAL SEGMENTS
THAT IT THEN FUNCTIONALLY PERCEIVES TO BE – REALITY.
UNDERSTANDING OF THIS ALSO REVEALS WHY THE NOTION OF TIME IS SUCH AN INSEPARABLE INGREDIENT IN MAN’S ROUTINE MENTAL OPERATIONS.
95021-7
FOR EVERY MYSTICAL APPROACH THERE IS AN ANTI-APPROACH,
AND FOR EVERY APPROACH AND ANTI-APPROACH
THERE IS A HARD-TO-SEE ONE THAT RUNS IN A DIRECTION DIFFERENT FROM BOTH.
…”THAT’S RIGHT, GO AHEAD, ASK ME, “WHERE?”, ASK ME “WHERE?”‘
….THAT’S RIGHT, BETTER YET, ASK YOU, “WHERE?, WHERE?”.
* * *
ONLY THOSE COLUMBUSES WHO RETURN EVER DESCRIBE THE NEW WORLD.
* * *
ACCORDING TO LEGEND, THERE WAS ONCE A MAN IN A MYSTICAL SCHOOL WHO SAID:
“YOU KNOW YOU’VE BEEN HERE TOO LONG
WHEN WHAT THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT BEGINS TO – MAKE SENSE!”
* * *
…”DID IT REALLY SAY ON THE BOX: ‘KILLS PAIN ON CONTACT’!?”…
95021-7(B)
The problem with the ordinary mind
Is that it attempts to:
Answer irrelevant questions,
Solve nonexistent problems,
Fix things not broken,
And untangle things not improperly tangled.

95021-8
AND NOW A FEATURE WE CALL: PSYCHOLOGY TODAY – “I’M SORRY SIR,
BUT THAT’S ALREADY BEEN TAKEN.” – OKAY • PSYCHOLOGY SOME TIME LATER:
FROM THE CITY APPROACH: THE ORIGIN OF ALL THOUGHT IS THE THINKING ABOUT THOUGHT WHILE A FEW,(OUTSIDE THE LIMITS), LOOK MORE TO A GENESIS OF,
ANCHOVIES….AND, CABBAGE….
How MANY TIMES, YOU RECKON,
WILL THE COOKS IN THE BASEMENT HAVE TO BURN DINNER BEFORE THOSE UPSTAIRS GET SUSPICIOUS!?
95021-9
ON THAT SEPCIAL “DAY OF THE WEEK”,
As A GIFT. TO HIMSELF,
ONE MAN WOULD ASK HIMSELF THESE SUCH QUESTIONS:
WHY LIVE IN THE DARK WHEN YOU CAN SEE!?
WHY REMAIN IN A DAZE WHEN THINGS CAN BE MADE CLEAR!?
WHY BE LOCAL WHEN YOU CAN BE UNIVERSAL!?
AND WHY BE DUMB WHEN YOU CAN BE SMART!?
…ON THAT VERY SPECIAL, ONCE A YEAR DAY, HE’D WRAP IT ALL UP INTO THE SINGLE QUESTION:
WHY JUST THINK WHEN YOU CAN ACTUALLY BE MORE CONSCIOUS!?
95021-10
Now A FOLLOW UP TO THAT DIAGNOSIS THE DOCTOR EARLIER BELIEVED YOU MISSED REGARDING THE BRAIN CUM MIND, THAT SAID:
“LIVERS ARE LIVERS, AND SPLEENS ARE SPLEENS,
AND THIS IS THE STRANGEST CASE EVER SEEN.”
To WIT: THE BRAIN IS THE ONLY ORGAN THAT DENIES THAT IT DOES WHAT IT DOES.
95021-11
THE INNER, MENTAL BATTLE
LITERAL THINKING WANTS TO “OVER-DO” THE ASSAULT DUE TO ITS UNCERTAINTY AS TO THE ENEMY,

t C
IF ALL DAYS WERE AS SIMILAR AS COMMON MINDS BELIEVE,
THERE WOULD BE NO OPEN SKIES FOR FUTURE BIRDS TO FLY.
* * *
IF ALL THOUGHTS WERE AS SIMILAR AS COLLECTIVE MINDS BELIEVE,
THERE COULD BE NO NEURAL JUICE TO LIGHT A XMAS TREE.
* * *
IF ALL YOUR POSSIBILITIES ARE
NO MORE THAN YOU HAVE THOUGHT,
THEN ALL OF YOUR POTENTIAL HAS BEEN MURDERED BY YOUR MIND.
* * *
IF ALLEGIANCE TO GLUE IS ALL THAT KEEPS ONE SAFE AND SANE,
THE MORE-ALERT WILL STRUGGLE TO, STRIP THEMSELVES FREE FROM  THEM SELF.
95021-13
REGARDING THE MATTER OF: HYPER-ACTIVITY
ONCE MAN HAD BEEN CREATED,
AND HAD DEVELOPED AN INTELLECT TO GO ALONG WITH HIS PHYSICAL PRESENCE,
LIFE GAVE EACH A CHOICE OF EITHER BEING PRIMARILY HYPER, OR MOSTLY ACTIVE
OR:
THE MISPLACEMENT:OF HIS SWORD TIED ALEXANDER UP IN KNOTS.
* * *
WHAT IS HISTORY & MEMORY OTHER THAN THE NON-LINEAR BEING MADE STRAIGHT!?, AND WHAT IS A MAN, WHEN THIS HAS BEEN DONE TO HIS NEURAL SYSTEM, OTHER THAN COMMON!? ….NORMAL, MUNDANE, ORDINARY, AND COMMON.

IT’S EASY FOR THE SIMPLE TO APPEAR SINCERE —
— THEY HAVE NOTHING TO BE SINCERE ABOUT.
95021-14
AS THE OLE BLUES SINGER ON THE CORNER, DID AGAIN HIS RENDITION OF:
“STICK OUT YOUR CAN, HERE COMES THE GARBAGE MAN”, A CHAP PASSING BY,
BEING STUCK IN SOME UNCERTAIN PLACE BETWEEN A HORMONAL INTERPRETATION THEREOF, AND A NEURAL ONE, DIDN’T KNOW WHETHER TO TOSS HIM A TIP, OR SHOOT HIM.
* * *
THEN OF COURSE THERE WAS THE MAN WHO WOULD TOLERATE ALLEGORIES ONLY AS LONG AS THE DRUGS HELD OUT.
* * *
THE CUT ON HIS FINGER SERVED HIM SO WELL THAT ONE MAN THEN PUT ONE ON HIS TONGUE AND BEING SO IMPRESSED WITH THAT MOVE, THEN MANAGED ONE TO HIS BRAIN.
THE MORAL PROBABLY BEING THAT: MEN WHO LIVE IN HAIR SHIRTS SHOULD NEVER THROW OUT ANY DRUGS!
— HEY!, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT TOMORROW MAY BRING.
* * *
95021-15
AND NOW: TONIGHT’S NEWS FABLE AS’READ BY ME PLAYING THE PART OF ONE PRESENTING IT
IN HIS LATER DAYS, DID THE GREAT RULER, MING KIDUS REFLECT:
“AH, BUT HAD THE ITCH OF MY YOUTH SURVIVED WITH ME INTO MY AGING, MY MYSTICAL DREAMS MIGHT BY NOW HAVE BEEN REALIZED.” —
…I’M GOING TO HAVE TO BREAK IN HERE AND SAY PERSONALLY THAT I REALLY DO NOT FAVOR HAVING TO READ STORIES LIKE THIS ONE THAT SEEM TO PRESENT THAT EXTRAORDINARY HUMAN POSSIBILITY IN SUCH A NEGATIVE CONTEXT,- …YEAH, I KNOW THAT VIEWERS THEMSELVES NEVER OBJECT,
BUT THAT’S NOT THE REAL POINT, NOW IS IT,
PRIVATELY REVISED VERSION OF THE ABOVE TALE:
A MAN BITTEN ON THE LEG BY A DOG CAN BENEFIT — IF, FRESH TEETH MARKS,
HE CAN BECOME.

95021-16
LET’S BE CLEAR: IN THE AREA OF, “ORIGINALITY OF THOUGHT”,
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS, PARTIAL ORIGINALITY.
A MAN WROTE THE COMPREHENSIVE DOCTOR:
“DEAR DOCTOR: I AM UNCLEAR AND CONFUSED IN THIS MATTER,
AND NEED A COMPREHENSIVE EXPLANATION:
HOW CAN ANYTHING BE TRULY ‘ORIGINAL’ WITHIN A CLOSED SYSTEM?”
SIGNED: “PUZZLED”.
DEAR PUZZLED: THERE CAN’T, BUT YOU CAN’T LET THAT STOP YOU,
BECAUSE YOUR INITIAL, NATURAL CONCEPTION OF WHAT CONSTITUTES ANYTHING. ‘ORIGINAL’, IS CONSTRICTED TO A DEGREE NEVER SUSPECTED BY THOSE
MENTALLY LIVING IN A CLOSED SYSTEM, UNAWARENESS,
AS ALWAYS, MY DEAR PUZZLED, AS REGARDS THE MATTER OF THE APPARENTLY. ‘IMPOSSIBLE’, IT MAY AT FIRST SEEM SPURIOUSLY SIMPLE FOR A BIRD TO URGE ONE WITH NO WINGS TO “FLY”, BUT THE CASE IS DIFFERENT IF THE LATTER TURNS OUT TO BE A CATERPILLAR, NOT YET RELEASED INTO ITS ULTIMATE BUTTERFLY FORM.”
95021-11,
THERE WAS ONCE A MAN WHO BEGAN TO PRIVATELY REALIZE THAT,
AT THE VERY LEAST, THERE IS A SPECIAL DANGER IN SPEECH FOR THE MORE-PERCEPTIVE(PARTICULARLY IN THEM LISTENING TO THEIR OWN LITERAL THINKING) –
IN THAT BY THEIR VERY NATURE,
WORDS INESCAPABLY ESTABLISH LIMITS AND BOUNDARIES TO THOSE THINGS ABOUT WHICH THEY SPEAK.
AND TO THE DEGREE TO WHICH YOU REALIZE THIS,
You LIKEWISE UNDERSTAND THE BASIC LACK OF USEFUL “SERIOUSNESS” INHERENT IN WHAT MEN-:NORMALLY.-.HAVE TO:SAY.
THUS DO THE MORE-CONSCIOUS — RIGHT OUT IN PUBLIC — BECOME SECRETIVE, — VERBAL RECLUSES.
* * *
95021-
AND THE MAN RESPONDED: “AM I MY BROTHER’S KEEPER!?”,
AND THE MAGISTRATE SAID: “No, BUT YOU WERE ACTING AS BAILEE FOR HIS CLICHES.”, “NOT SO”, COUNTERED THE MAN, “THAT WAS THE COLLECTIVELY CONTROLLED PART OF HIS OWN MIND DOING THAT.”
….(AND IN A BETTER COURT ROOM, SUCH A WITNESS WOULD THEN HAVE BEEN SHOT.)
95021-19
You HAVE TO BE DUMBER THAN OTHER PEOPLE TO ENJOY HEARING THEM TALK.
95021-20
OKAY – FAIRNESS & EQUAL TIME REGARDING AN EARLIER ITEM:
MAN IS THE ONLY CREATURE WHO DENIES THAT HE IS WHAT HE IS.
…HOW ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY THAT THE ENLIGHTENMENT IS NO MORE THAN A FREEDOM FROM THIS 191
95021-2 1
THE CODE MASTER’S DICTUM
THINK IN CODE,
SPEAK IN CODE,
BUT DON’T LET ANYONE KNOW.

95021-22
AND NOW, DEARLY BELOVED,
As WE SLOWLY RAISE THE COFFIN INTO THE GROUND,
A FINAL WORD REGARDING THE AWAKENING:
IT IS, PERHAPS, THE ONE PUNCH LINE No ONE AWAITS,
DIG IT!
