MY NEWS FOR JULY 16, 1999 COPYRIGHT 1999 JAN COX
ONE MAN HAD THE ABILITY TO THINK OF 2 PLUS 2 EQUALLY 4,
OR ELSE TO PICTURE IT METAPHORICALLY WHEREBY 2 PLUS 2 MIGHT EQUAL ANYTHING HE WISHED,
EVERY MAN IS THIS MAN,
SAVE FOR HE WHO MIGHT MOMENTARILY REALIZE WHAT IS
CHEMICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY GOING ON IN THIS UNIVERSE: EN THIS GALAXY: ON THIS PLANET, AND IN THAT PARTICULAR CARBON BASED CREATURE KNOWN AS: DACRON, (ALONG WITH ITS SUBSPECIES: HOMO DREAMUS.)

IN A VOICE TINGED WITH FRUSTRATION, (IF NOT DESPAIR), ONE MAN MOANED:
“AH AND ALAS: I SEEM TO HAVE MENTALLY BACKED MYSELF INTO AN. INESCAPABLE CORNER.”,
AND UPON HEARING THIS COMMENT, A NEAR-BY GUY SIGHED:
“AHH, BUT EF ONLY I COULD BE SO FORTUNATE.”
…THE KEY WORD IN ALL OF THIS BEING, “INESCAPABLE”,
FOR ANYTHING THAT IS ESCAPABLE IS BUT A ROUTINE PRODUCT OF, “SPARE-TIME-CONSCIOUSNESS”, AND OF NO PRACTICAL VALUE,
FOR PURPOSES OF “ESCAPE”:
ONLY THINGS THAT ARE PERMANENT ARE OF ANY VALUE,
AND ANYTHING CONSCIOUSNESS THINKS ABOUT EN ITS OFF TIME IS NOT PERMANENT,
JUST AS CONSCIOUSNESS-OFF-THE-CLOCK IS NOT ITSELF,
IN WHATEVER MOMENTARY FORM IT TAKES TO HAVE SUCH THOUGHTS,
A THING PERMANENT,
WATER FLOWING FROM AN IMAGINARY CUP IS LIMITED IN ITS NATURE TO BEING THE SAME AS THE VESSEL FROM WHICH IT CAME.
DUCKS BEGET ONLY DUCKS, AND ILLUSIONARY ONES BEGET ILLUSIONARY ONES, AND MAN’S CONSCIOUSNESS THINKS OF MANY THINGS, MOST OF THEM, USELESS, WHICH BY NOW SHOULDN’T BE A SURPRISE TO ANYONE,
THE CHAIRMAN BANGED HIS GAVEL EN THE ATTEMPT TO BRING SOME SEMBLANCE
OF ORDER TO THE PROCEEDINGS, AND SAID TO THE WITNESS: “WHAT THIS COMMITTEE WANTS FROM YOU SIR, IS QUITE SIMPLE: A DIRECT ANSWER TO THE QUESTION:
ARE YOU NOW, OR HAVE YOU EVER BEEN??

ONE MAN PRIVATELY DECIDED TO ASSUME THIS ATTITUDE
TOWARD A CERTAIN ASPECT OF HIS INTERNAL, PERSONAL WORKINGS:
“I DON’T,’THINK,
NOR AM I PARTICULARLY ‘CONSCIOUS’ IN ANY MEANINGFUL, INDIVIDUAL SENSE:
MY NERVOUS SYSTEM JUST KEEPS MY BRAIN OPERATING NIGHT AND DAY, AND A CERTAIN PART OF IT GETS SO WORKED UP AND AGITATED
THAT WHEN IT DOESN’T HAVE ANYTHING BETTER TO DO,
IT STARTS TALKING TO ITSELF IN MY HEAD ABOUT ALL MANNER OF RIDICULOUS AND IMPOSSIBLE DAY DREAMS AND DESCRIPTIONS OF LIFE.
IT’S NOT MY FAULT:
IT’S NOBODY’S FAULT,
AND I DON’T KNOW WHY I EVER GOT TANGLED UP IN WORRYING ABOUT IT…
…BUT I DID…
AND IN FACT I DO KNOW WHY:
IT WAS AT THE VERY URGING OF THAT RAMBLING, TALK-TO-ITSELF
PART OF MY BRAIN.
THANKS A LOT,
CERTAIN PART —
— HEY, JUST KIDDING, OLE PART,
DON’T TAKE WHAT I JUST SAID PERSONALLY….
ANY MORE THAN I SHOULD BE TAKE PERSONALLY — WHAT YOU SAY.
LET’S CALL IT EVEN AND LET IT GO AT THAT.”

ONE MAN STUCK HIS HEAD INTO A CERTAIN PIECE OF MACHINERY
TO SEE HOW IT PHYSICALLY WORKED:
AND FOR A WHILE, SEEMED TO HAVE REGRETTED DOING SO, SAYING THAT
IT WAS ALMOST MORE FUN, NOT KNOWING EXACTLY HOW THE THING WORKED,
AND THINKING ABOUT IT IN NON-LITERAL, ALLEGORICAL TERMS.
BUT EVENTUALLY,(HE NOTES), AFTER THOROUGHLY ABSORBING THE TOTAL ASPECTS OF THE WHOLE AFFAIR, HE WAS NOTHING LESS THAN PLEASED WITH WHAT HE’D DONE, AND FEELS HIMSELF VERGED ON THE POSSIBILITY OF BIDDING HIS LONG TIME FRIEND, “ALLEGORICAL TERMS” A FOND FAREWELL.

CONSCIOUSNESS IS LIKE A MAN WHO MUST TAP DANCE CONSTANTLY TO STAY ALIVE, AND IF GIVEN NO SPECIFIC MUSIC WILL MAKE LIP HIS OWN AS HE GOES ALONG,
DON’T BLAME HIM IF YOU DON’T LIKE ANY PARTICULAR PIECE HE MAY BE DANCING TO,
AT ANY PARTICULAR TIME,
IN FACT,
YOU ARE BEING FOOLISH TO BLAME ANYONE FOR ANYTHING
IN THIS PARTICULAR UNIVERSE AND REALITY,
WHEREIN THERE IS NO ONE ELSE, SAVE CREATURES IN THE SAME PARTICULAR FIX
AS YOU.
DANCE, DANCE, DANCE, LITTLE CORTEX,
WHILE THE REST OF YOUR CORPUS KEEPS ME ALIVE,
ONE MAN BECAME SO “ENLIGHTENED”, (AS SOME LIKE TO CALL IT),THAT WHEN HE THOUGHT HE ONLY THOUGHT OF: ELECTROCHEMICAL ACTIVITIES. ….(EVEN THE BUDDHA WAS PUT TO SHAME.)
