Notes by TK

The source of the secret of awakening is not in consciousness it is about consciousness. It involves consciousness. A beautiful example of this is the arising of the concept of civil law. The law is absolutely foreign to all creatures but man. It exists only in consciousness, as words/ideas. It arose out of the daydreaming state that consciousness engages in when not actively solving a problem.

The law = civilization; a civilizing influence. Primitive societies have fewer laws, cruder laws, such as religious laws. Life has caused man to develop the law but also to despise it, verbally. To wit: lawyer jokes, based on the universal distrust and dislike of lawyers. It is a hatred of impartial judgment, which no human mind has any real desire for.

People don’t want justice, they want mercy; they want their way! The more men live under civil law, the more they dislike it. This surely is the cover for something important: a purpose Life has in so arranging it. (43:15) #3144

Info That’s Hot NOW! (Assuming You Are)

(Note: All events & conversations reported here occur in a small space: one you could hold in your hands.)

On one world (before the male scientists discovered hormones)
they falsely fingered women as the source of selfish cunning.
Neurons are unquestionably the only ones able to dream of what may be
over the horizon, but they are also by nature, normally unable to hold a
constant realization of what a horizon is made of:
(a matter of no consequence to men not actually going anywhere,
but a specific sojourn inhibitor for a few.)

Conversation.
“What power does man have given no other creature?”
“To commit suicide.”
“Close.”
“Okay: the knowledge of what it is.”
“Closer.”
“Got it: the knowledge of death so that he could then conceive of suicide,
and the power it brings him.”
“Do you ever ponder the strange things that men lump under the concept: power?”

A father offered a son this everyday advice:
“When talking to ordinary people about city affairs: if you can’t be sincere —

pretend to be.”

Brushing aside a reading recommendation said a chap:
“If I was interested in fiction — I’d review my memory of my life.”

From The Rebel’s Perspective: Another Disadvantage To Being Ordinary.
Only those with backs can suffer at the hands of: back stabbers.

A man who learns only from experience will never learn enough to wake up.

In truth: it is not what men find unclear that troubles them — but rather the obvious — which they perforce are forced to pretend they don’t see.

Were you asked if you would do anything differently could you live your life over,
and you say yes, (or even respond for that matter) your consciousness of
what is actually going on with life is still being remotely controlled.

One guy’s view:
“They run credits at the end of a movie for the same reason they recount a man’s life
at his funeral: to protect the producer from assault until it’s too late.”

In show biz you’re not good until more people than your manager think you are,
(not like how your mind operates from your vantage point [if youse ordinary.])

A chap notes: “One thing no religion wastes its time mentioning is: thinking.”
(“Yes,” agrees another, “hormones tell me all I need to know….
[although I must admit — nothing I can think about.])”

Said a father to a son: “You should have thought of that before you died.”
(Note: A good son benefits even when he doesn’t immediately comprehend.)

Political Outrages.
The presence of two partisan minds in one land/head
presents a potentially explosive situation.

In the run of city affairs it is believed that men can be hung by their words
easier than they can by their neck.

Everyone is concerned about falling asleep at the wrong time —
but they are at the wrong time.

A man popular in prison never hears a quote concerning him that he doesn’t like.
An empty closet cannot be slighted.
Corollary: The less you understand the more you need to dress up.

Knowing you’re going to die is a common experience;
realizing that you may die knowing no more than you did when you were born
is not quite so widespread.

Most men know better than to introduce their second wife to their first
for the same reason they don’t commingle dissimilar ideas in their mind.

Soliciting another’s opinion is like enticing an elephant to piss on your foot.

Ordinary men/minds always tell more than they know
while the man who actually knows can never tell all he knows.
Even if they could be verbally limned, some things an awakened mind sees
would take more than a lifetime to describe.
“It’s always a question of efficiency, no?!”
What’s-possible is more like it,
(and of course the IMpossible being the height of INefficiency.)

There are three identifiable levels of human seriousness:
ordinary seriousness;
super seriousness, and:
men-on-a-mission.

Sex (And Other Non Physical Stuff).
Only those aged out of the game worry about its roughness.

A man with sins to confess will never finish.

From a rebel’s perspective: History is a record of the mind’s torpidity.

After years of confinement: prisoners will commonly find the sight of
near naked thought downright erotic.

Meaningless games never want for players.

Definitions.
Freedom: A destination,
Escape: An activity;
thus is the animated rebel concerned with the latter.

Genes frighten anyone with any sense,
(which is why men are so loath to talk about them.)

All prisons have names — to increase their captiousness.

Fact.
You can’t fool a dead man.

One form of captivity is to have fun at someone else’s expense.

In prison conflicts: to be non aligned is to be above them.

Conversational Quiz.
“What do you call purveyors of fiction?”
“Novelists?”
“No you ninny — humans.”

Thought can be a ladder — but high places continue to frighten most minds.
