Fact: Thinking is man’s most important feature.
Fact: Man thinks of two sorts of things:
things that exist apart from his thinking,
and things that exist only in his thinking.
Fact: Man thinks about the first type of things because they are
important to his survival.
Fact: The other type of things he thinks about are not important —
only how he feels about the thoughts is.
So Fact: So: it does not matter what you think about;
all that counts is how you feel about what you think about.
Ah So! Fact: Everything you ever think about is due entirely to how you feel.
Fact de la — Huh?!: Thoughts are feelings in disguise;
thoughts are feelings trying to speak;
feelings are the guidance system for the rocket of life,
so thoughts could be like its bicycle horn.

WHICH IS IT?
In their brains men have two minds: a talking mind and a listening mind —
or else they do not, and only have a listening mind,
with something else doing the talking;
and while this could certainly be true,
no mind listening to the possibility being described can e’er conceive of it
actually being so, along with everything it might suggest.
‘Tis been said there can be no real friendship and mutually beneficial relationship between two un equals,
and one man took it to heart regarding the dance twixt the talking in his head
and the listening.
And as has also been politically noted: Anyone who helps further your career
should be killed as soon as possible,
and another chap has applied this maxim securely to the ever shifting relationship between the two unequal parties in his own head.

Fact: When not working on physical problems, the job of thought is to have fun;
(look at beavers when they are not dam building.)
Fact: What most people’s thoughts say is fun should be considered perjury.
Fact: Just because everybody does it does not prove that it is actually fun;
ordinary minds always feel there should be a pay off even to fun thoughts,
but real fun has no point or purpose;
fun that is not pure fun is not real fun,
thus no serious thought can ever be fun and meet the requirement of what
thought should be doing in its free time.
Shame, shame, shame on all ye without purely fun thought.

WELL — HAVE YOU?
Have you yet to realize on your own, as per the division previously noted
regarding all of man’s thoughts either being about things that exist outside the mind,
or things that exist only in the mind, that none of the first really trouble man:
a farmer may well be anxious over a lack of rain, but is not driven to the insane measures and irrational anger about it as he is by another man’s thoughts about god

One held the map and talked while the other drove the car,
and the one with the map, although he had no idea where they were going,
talked about their trip constantly, but going is what they did.
Going, map making and talking about the trip was their game,
but going is what they actually did.
This of course, is the story of giraffes.

HOW TO WAKE UP IN SPECIALIZED CIRCUMSTANCES
If you are a motorist the way to wake up is: Don’t look at wrecks;
if you are a pilot: Don’t look down;
if you are indoors: Don’t look at the furniture;
if you are with others: Don’t look at them;
if you are alone: Don’t look at yourself;
if you are in prison: don’t look at the bars, and above all:
If you hear noise — don’t stop and look in its direction.
The well timed private laugh is of more use to a man trying to get to the bottom of things than all of the books on the subject ever written.
