Summary

#1423 – 4/14/95
Notes by TK

The mystic must be mentally at least a generation ahead of where he is physically. The evidence of ordinary intelligence at 20 is being alert to fashion. Evidence at 50 is the denouncement of youthful fashion and trends.

SINCE CHILDHOOD HAD DREAMED OF HAVING A MAGICAL, FLYING HORSE,
— AND EVERY TIME HE MENTIONED IT TO HIS FATHER
THE ELDER NEVER TOLD HIM THAT THERE WAS NO SUCH CREATURE,
NOR THAT HE COULD NOT HAVE ONE,
BUT WOULD ONLY SMILE AT THE IDEA AND NOD HIS HEAD KNOWINGLY.
THEN WHEN THE LAD WAS GROWN,
NE ONE DAY RETURNED HOME AND TOLD HIS FATHER THAT THE TIME HAD COME
WHEN HE MUST KNOW HOW TO POSSESS THE MYSTICAL STEED OF HIS DREAMS,
AND THE OLD MAN REPLIED:

BUT I CAN TELL YOU IS THIS:
You WILL NEVER LOCATE THE CREATURE AS LONG AS YOU CONTINUE TO RIDE
THE HORSES THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE.”

ANOTHER WAY YOU CAN IDENTIFY THOSE OF ORDINARY INTELLIGENCE IS THAT THEY’RE GIVEN TO CRITICIZING THINGS CURRENTLY POPULAR, AND ATTEMPTING TO POPULARIZE THINGS LONG PAST.
COROLLARY: PEOPLE WITH NO CREATIVE TALENTS TEND TO BE CLUMSY. “DO YOU MEAN, PHYSICALLY?” IT’S NOT LIMITED TO THAT.

SINCE IN THIS EXTRAORDINARY GAME, “ORIGINALITY IS ALL”,
AND INASMUCH AS IN A CLOSED SYSTEM, TRUE ORIGINALITY IS NOT HARDLY POSSIBLE, r**–. THE TRICK IS THAT YOU’VE JUST GOTTA ALWAYS BE TRYING YOUR BEST.

ONE GUY’S LATEST VIEW IS:
“THE ONLY REAL USE FOR METAPHORS IS TO USE ONE ‘TIL YOU’RE SICK OF IT.”
…(IN THE NAME OF FAIRNESS & INSIDE TRADER INFORMATION,
IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT HIS OLDER BROTHER HAS A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT

THEN ABANDON IT.”

TWENTY YEARS..,AT LEAST ABOUT THIS].)

THE KING OF ONE LAND, WHO HAD NO DAUGHTER TO GIVE IN MARRIAGE OR A RAFFLE,
INSTEAD ISSUED A LOUD DECLARATION, (THAT SAID):
“SHOW ME A MAN OVER FIFTY YEARS OLD WHO HAS SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO,
AND I’LL INTRODUCE HIM TO A MAN OF TWENTY
WHO DOESN’T KNOW HIS ASS FROM A FOOD PROCESSOR,
AND WOULD BE DISAPPOINTED SHOULD YOU SHOW HIM THE DISTINCTION.”,
BUT ALAS! —
IT WAS A POOR LAND,
WITH POOR FOLK,
AND THEY COULDN’T AFFORD SUCH A MAN.
MORAL OF THE STORY: ,
IF YOU’RE PHYSICALLY UPRIGHT, YOU HAVE A LAND, AND IF MENTALLY FUNCTIONAL, A KING.
YOU PUT ‘EM TOGETHER AND YOU MAKE SOME SENSE OUT OF IT!

THE DESIRE TO BE MORE CONSCIOUS/ WITH OUT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT.,
r’IS THE ONE FORM OF SELF-DIRECTED-CANNIBALISM THAT NONE FIND AGREEABLE.
