Jan Cox Talk 3279

What Everyone Thinks of as “Their” Mind Is Life’s Mind


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

Life’s mind initiates all change. The key indicator of this is that there is always an identifiable external impetus responsible. All such change is never satisfying. What everybody thinks is his own mind is Life’s mind. (39:03) #3279

The Non-Standard Medical Journal For Those With
Non-Standard Demands Regarding Their Condition
MARCH 28, 2005 © 2005: JAN COX

For the nervous-system-rebel there is potential liberation in the slogan:
“It’s either them or us” – if you understand this to be a strictly internal affair;
you must never do what “them” (your own systems) want you to do,
(such as: get mad when you are mad, or be sad when you are sad);
you simply cannot ever let “them” have the upper hand.
Your nature will eventually kill you (after jerking you around for seventy years).

Medical Alert.
Every ill ain’t goodbye and every “I” ain’t you – or:
all eyes are not on you – they’re in you.
(Repeat until the doctor succumbs.)

For the few: ignorance is not a virgin.

In ordinary conspiracy theories, the secret controllers must:
1. conceal their intentions;
2. misdirect the controllee’s attention, and,
3. deny their own existence;
compare this to how automatic thoughts deal with your consciousness.
(“I have seen the Great Conspirator, and his second-in-command is
my inborn thinking.”)

While some seek to be powerful – a few strive to be efficient.

Whatever a man may say about the collective human activity outside of him,
the same is true inside of him.
In man’s second-reality-sea, there is as much water inside a ship’s hull
as there is outside of it.
(Aka: Who tells fairy tales is also who listens to them.)
A certain balance is maintained in normal men’s consciousness –
which is what keeps them from realizing what’s going on.

Although Life drives some to applaud the abundance of different ideas,
only a few truly appreciate diversity;
for the many: just the illusion of choice and variation will do nicely.

When done right, working to crack-the-case has a certain edge of threat & danger.
(Fun is always exciting.)

To live solely on externally acquired ideas is to subsist on public welfare.

The higher you go in the nervous-system, the less the activity feels itself to be
material & molecular.
(The dreams of livers are not even in the same league with those of frontal lobes.)

He who does not internally look-after-his-self will have no self.

Habits are like desirable women, and the urge to change them is likely to cause your complete seduction thereby.
(The Story Of The Long Distance Swimmer And The Sea Of Stickum.)

He who rails about the stupidity of others is his self as a rube cubed.

Ordinary scientists say that to properly pursue their muse they must be free to question absolutely everything with no conditions, restrictions or restraints,
but to ever crack-the-case a man must go way beyond that.

There can be no permanent peace in the land of creatures with thoughts.

A father said to a son: “Can you begin to look upon the priests, politicians and captains of commerce and see how little intelligence and talent it takes to rule?!”

What the ordinary call premonition is fear in reverse.

You are surrounded by understudies: people programmed to step into any role should Life suddenly require it.
But did this keep Pharaoh on his toes, or cause Nero to increase his rosin supply?
(Some folks never learn.)

In one land it is believed that 90% of psychiatric problems are due to poor posture.

It is true that you cannot-fight-fate – unless of course you are fated to do so.
Few can appreciate living on a carousel (though all do so).

Water need not be touted to the thirsty,
and only those sans needs must be told what they want.
(Probably a good thing that Joshua wasn’t confronted with the walls of Madison Ave.)

You can use your time on the factory line learning the ways of a rebel,
or else just go with the production flow, always adjusting to what your ordinary thoughts perceive to be the inevitable.
(“I’ll come out the other end either a box of standard widgets,
or an undetected union buster.”)

Originally (to hold their position) the powerful needed only to control land, food,
and water – but now the stakes include information.
Question: Are you satisfied letting a conspiracy run your consciousness?

All newly discovered truths are an insult (assuming the past has feelings).

As is well known in terminal wards: When everything is completely coming apart – everything suddenly makes sense.
Question: Are you willing to wait ‘til then?
