Consciousness Unable to Remove Itself From Its Own Concepts
The following recordings are from Jan’s final years, when his voice was diminished and he spoke in a low whisper. Some listeners may find these tapes hard to listen to, or difficult to understand. Thus, as another option, transcripts are being made and will be posted.
Otherwise, turn up the volume and enjoy! Those who carefully listened to Jan during this period consider that he spoke plainly and directly to the matter at hand, “pulling out all the stops,” as he understood that these were to be his last messages to his groups, and to posterity.

Notes by TK
Ordinary human consciousness is incapable of realizing that once something is registered therein, it cannot be erased or altered. To wit: the concept of god; whether affirmed, denied or deemed indeterminate is wholly irrelevant, for either position supports the existence of the concept. Consciousness, unable to divine the origin of its concepts, is powerless to remove itself from their influence.
To realize the origin of your concepts and their ubiquitous presence in all men’s thinking and that consciousness cannot conceive of this reality, is to awaken. This is, in effect, to remember what you were like before you were conscious: to see the origin of consciousness. Only then can the affect of concepts be removed from the nervous system.

Sequence For Composing Popular Songs.
First you write about: Disappointment with a lover,
then: Disappointment with your leaders,
then: Disappointment with god (and ultimately if necessary):
Disappointment with the music-buying public (because of their you-know-what).
A man notes:
“A nice benefit of being upset by the injustices men say they see in the world
around them is that it keeps them from zeroing in on the big one
extant inside of them.”
(“Inside the brain, to be more exact!?”
Hey — what possible sort of injustice can be taking place inside a man’s brain?)
Nervous-system-rebels are spared the expense of guns;
if they want to commit suicide all they have to do is open their mouth the wrong way.
“Everybody’s a suck-up to somebody.”
“How else would flocks hold together!?”
“Or our minds.”
“Our ordinary minds.”
To an opened eye: no one impressed with their self is impressive.
After reading the many acclaimed texts trying to explain what is going on,
one man mused: “Any song that wanders more than a few steps away from the tonic
is at least mildly amusing.”
“If you live in a steel building it doesn’t matter that you have termites.”
“It always matters that you have termites.”
Whenever he would suffer one of those particular inner wounds one man would announce that they were “not releasing the victim’s name at this time,”
when in fact he had no intention of ever doing so.
All talk attempting to explain man’s verbal behavior is the supreme example of
talk that is nothing BUT talk.
On one weird world is a creature (in fact the most intelligent one there)
that calls itself everything but what it clearly is.
Query: Why aren’t you moved to wonder why? — really moved?
“Giants can stand in piddling puddles without harm.”
“Standing in piddling puddles will eventually harm anyone.”
“Even the nervous-system-rebel?”
While the info in circulation among ordinary men is based on conflict,
that used by the certain man affords instead an enlightening view of their contentions;
amounting to an otherwise unavailable, scientific scan of Valhalla.
(“Much superior, wouldn’t you say, than a fanciful one of Vesuvius.”)
Though you can go the wrong way on an imaginary street and suffer no damage,
reverse the situation and this is not so.
“There’s one part of the brain that is certainly more fun than the others.”
“You don’t know that; the only reason you say it is because it is the only part
“And talk is one of the things I enjoy most in life – so there!”
“Boy! has it got you snookered.”
Men lacking an understanding of actual morality are always looking to establish
some institution or program to instill morality into the lives of men.
A Political Scene Revamped.
Voice heard coming from under that tree over there:
“I regret I have but one extra head to give to my awakening.”
Said a father to a son:
“There is nothing ever going on outside of you (even so-called, world events)
that is equal in value to what is taking place inside of you;
certainly nothing worth losing your attention to at the expense of it being focused on
your own consciousness.”
The more you let your mind think about a particular thing
the more significant it seems to your life, even though it may have none.
Immediacy is the secret to beginning – stopping of ending.
One man sometimes enjoys introducing himself as: “The late me.”
(“Being far too humble,” adds he, “to include: ‘late, great me’.)
In prison, everyone’s a loudmouth (even run of the mill mutes).
Just as real men are not impressed with other men’s tales of wives and children,
neither so is the awakened man with other men’s acclaim within the context of
the teaching they follow in pursuit of this aim.
Conversation overheard just off the main showroom floor:
“The most important word in making a sale is, ‘Yes’.”
“It may be second.”
“Then what is first?”
“I’m sorry: I’m not at liberty to reveal that.”
A (To Some) Annoying Reminder.
If you do not find being alive humorous (frequently verging on the ludicrous)
you’re not awake or enlightened – forget about it.
People with nothing useful to convey love to say:
“Knowledge is power.”
Inquires one man:
“How much more than half shot does it cost to be completely done in?”
(Although he kept notes – he never looked at them.)
Sign in one man’s establishment: “Only Tap Shoes Allowed In The Embalming Room.”
(Says one guy [making much racket on the court]: “I’m not strung out – I’m RE strung!”)
A Kid & Pop Quiz.
“What is the greatest modern example of man’s consciousness in action?”
“Men being interviewed.”
“What is the greatest ancient example?”
“Men being interviewed.”
If you don’t see the humor in the conscious part of the brain treating its invention of “you” seriously, you and it will never catch on to what’s really going on
(that last “you” being the supreme in silliness).

We wrap up today’s News with more excerpts from the ancient occult writings know to the select few as:
“What’d You Say?!”
Aka: “Why’d You Say That!?”
(Though their technically correct name be: “UFN’s: Unidentified Flying Nevers.”)
Never criticize the rich – even if they are all dumber than you.
Never lend your car to gypsies or a loved one to the Argentine military.
Never take it one-day-at-a-time if across town they’re having a “two-fer sale.”
Never tell a customs agent that his wife smells-funny.
Never read a book just-because-it’s-there.
Never shout for the return-of-the-Monarchy at a soccer game.
Never move your lips while reading heavy-material;
never read heavy material.
Never try-as-you-might – they might come to expect it of you.
Never stick out your tongue and make rude noises at a government building.
Never admit that you know-the-score.
Never eat-the-last-bite – unless that’s all there is.
Never lend money to a man in a hot air balloon.
Never vote for a candidate from another planet.
Never act too sure of yourself — unless you can be sure it’s you doing it.
Never ask a nude person to put-their-clothes-back-on (unless you’re really tired).
Never let them appoint you Head of the Federal Reserve anything.
Never forget to raise your full hand if the secret police call your name –
never just a finger.
Never pay homage to a shrine that’s on a flatbed truck.
Never agree to anyone else’s bargain.
Never point-out-the-flaws in others if they seem to be the sort who don’t want their flaws pointed out (you can always take it out later on dwarfs and the bed ridden).
Never trust an army with an answering service.
Never have your people call their people unless their people are your people.
Never expect to achieve extraordinary greatness if your name is: Just Plain Bill.
Never take a whoopee cushion to a séance.
Never expect to split-the-difference with an armed man.

Notes by Cfish June 2022
Suggested Title: Somewhere Between Subtle and Non Existent – Consciousness Tried the Direct Look First – So Elusive – It’s Impossible to Notice it’s Elusiveness
Begin: Tonight’s subject is somewhere between subtle and non existent. And it is what all of this is all about. When something registers in ordinary consciousness it can never wipe it out or free itself from it. And that is not the weird part.
The weird part is that human consciousness is incapable of realizing it. The prime example would be the concept of God. (Remember God is in no way important to what I am talking about) Once registered in consciousness the concept can be denied or supported but ordinary consciousness cannot wipe the concept out of the nervous system.
05:00 I can see human consciousness creating God. And I can see how the idea of God came about, with consciousness trying directly to conceive of itself. Once consciousness planted some crops, consciousness in short order turned on itself.
And once consciousness turned on itself, thinking it could be fun, (ex. what’s going on in my head?) not only did consciousness not enjoy it, it could not deal with it. And then is when consciousness made up God. Some of you heard it.
10:00 The concept of God and other concepts came about because consciousness could not deal with attempts to investigate itself. Every notion of things that cannot be physically measured is in ordinary consciousness permanently.
And ordinary consciousness cannot see from whence it came. Therefore he can never shed himself from it. That is what being asleep is. That is being normal. It’s the feature of ordinary consciousness that infuriates the few. (ex. being asleep)
Once an intangible matter is registered in ordinary consciousness, it can never rid itself of it, and he is also incapable of realizing he cannot rid himself of it. It’s the ultimate dream, though he can say otherwise.(ex. belief in God, but no longer)
15:00 In your consciousness you are literally living in a world of illusion. As an adult the concept of God does not exist because you tell yourself it does not exist. But that’s not right. You can never make your mind believe what you say.
Once an intangible concept is registered in ordinary consciousness – it is there. Listening to ordinary consciousness bring things up in the intangible world (ex. not believing in God) you appear to believe it.
20:00 Conversely, “waking up” etc. could be described as those normal intangible things that register on ordinary consciousness – but does not on yours. My initial challenge for tonight is to look on your consciousness in a special way.
Just you and your own thinking on consciousness. You know by now you can look at your consciousness in a special way. You realize what you are seeing in your consciousness is fully represented in the collective thinking. (ex. beliefs, etc.)
I’m encouraging you to look, until you see it. It’s non existent, so you can’t describe it. Your ordinary consciousness, and everyone else’s ordinary consciousness is incapable, once an intangible is registered in the nervous system – consciousness is incapable of conceiving of its origins.
Which is consciousness itself. When you see it, you get two immediate sensations. !. Shocked and disgusted. 2. You’ll laugh your ass off. The realization is not that, maybe consciousness made up all these intangibles.
25:00 The realization is understanding that your consciousness can realize that no one’s ordinary consciousness can realize that. Humanity collectively, including the best minds, cannot conceive of the origins of man’s inner world.
One day you are conscious. (ex. Adam heard a voice inside his head.) Another way to describe it: You cannot remember what you were like before you were conscious. Before you were conscious you were not “something.”
Ordinary consciousness lives in a dream. That is the premise for people like us who have always tolled. If living in a dream is possible. it’s not possible to realize it. Real thought will conclude – yeah, that is correct.
30:00 Except consciousness cannot conceive of that. It will say the opposite. When you can see for yourself, that consciousness cannot conceive of – the origin of that which makes up consciousness – it’s then like a final step.
The final step being the normal intangibles, that normally register in your nervous system/consciousness, as they do – it is only then, can you cease “reacting” to them. It’s not behavior. It’s the word, or anything really intangible and registered in the nervous system. (ex. God, etc.)
The beliefs, the words, no longer have any effect. That is being truly out of the dream. Because you are still in the dream if you deny – still argue- any discussion within you about the “belief.” (ex. existence of God, etc.)
Normal intangible are pieces of a dream. Sufi, Buddhism, Yogi beliefs, that still affect the nervous system – How elusive can one thing be? So elusive – its impossible to notice the elusiveness. You are not free as long as the word “free” has any meaning to you. 34:20
