Jan Cox Talk 3283

All Misadventure Occurs When Mind Isn’t Focused On Current Affairs


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

There is no talk that ever accomplishes anything except what applies to instant, present, physical activity. Especially ineffectual is the talk the mind has with itself. All misadventure occurs while the mind is thinking about something other than what is presently going on. It’s impossible to live in a dream if you do not think/talk about anything besides what is the present, physical activity. Thus, all secondary affairs are unaffected by talk: religion, politics, philosophy, morality, culture, etc. (41:01) #3283

In one place, a guy started talking about stuff that no one had ever thought about before, and for a while many of them found it interesting, but eventually said
they were going to stop listening unless he made clear to them
what the point of the new stuff was.
Those born to the life of the special-investigator find mere clues as intriguing
as does everyone else the notion of the mystery itself.

Out on that vast chemical plain where lightning forever strikes, stands an isolated eatery with this sign on the door:
“For Those Armed & Dangerously Hungry: No Reservations Required.”

Man’s Personal And Public Side.
The gap between what you know and what you don’t know
is filled by what everyone else knows.

After a lengthy examination of his naturally appearing self,
one man declared to his self: “I shall not be responsible for the likes of me.”

Acts & Facts.
Only acts have a past and future;
facts have only memory and imagination.

Remember: You are ordinary and a sheep if another can describe your goals.

After some years had passed, one man finally turned to his self and said:
“Okay, I’m calling your bluff.”

Anything that leaves a trail isn’t going anywhere.

There was a man who didn’t seem to know the difference between “and,” and “but,” but it didn’t seem to matter and he did quite nicely.

On a certain fact-oriented planet the weatherman on their neural network recently
gave this forecast: “Present conditions today, followed by other conditions tomorrow.”

(Something you might watch out for): Just before it’s your time to go on the big date,
death puts on lipstick.

Anytime you say something in the city, do not hesitate to explain what you mean – and always be willing (if not anxious) to explain your explanations.

One thing that is not possible for the inner rebel in man’s second-reality
is to overdo not-responding.

No doubt about it: facts can certainly make a lot of noise;
thankfully, the nervous-system-rebel knows where the volume control is located.

Poetry Upstairs & Down.
The fires-that-light-men’s-souls also drive their turbines.

In man’s inner-only, second-reality, what is called and accepted as progress
doesn’t actually have to go anywhere.

Another benefit of the city is that there, you can’t make a wrong turn.

The certain words the would-be rebel needs to know are not in the dictionary –
oh, they’re there all right – they just don’t have the correct definition.

On one world, they burn each week once they’re done with it.

A father said to a son: “Either make some beneficial use of the past or forget about it.”
“How do you make such use?”
“No one knows.”

If in the city, and in doubt – act enthusiastically.

It’s natural to want to be liked –
and it’s natural to talk –
might be a connection between the two? Besides the immediately apparent.

A curious perspective slipped into one man’s consciousness: “Somehow it don’t
seem right to be thinking ideas that other people have already thought.”

In the rebel’s world, no info worthwhile can be proved.

One man fed the rats in his house in appreciation of them running off the roaches.
(“Well! — you’ve finally done it — you’ve finally reported [or more likely, made up]
a news item that no one, even employing the latest in allegory technology,
can apply to the relationship between man’s inborn mind & the rebel one of the few.
Yes sir — you’ve gone and done it!”)

Solid Advice To Those Living In The City.
Never take your own advice.

Just as a man with a beautiful girlfriend is constantly concerned where she is at
any given moment since he knows that every man who sees her wants to shtup her, the nervous-system-rebel is concerned where his attention is at every instant,
since he knows that the thoughts Life automatically furnishes his mind
are intended to distract and seduce it, and even more than with a woman is he protective of his consciousness.

All of man’s perceived second-reality-tomorrows are based on the
unstated expectation that no today is ever completed.

While acts can kill — only facts can do murder to humans.
The kind of dispatch attempted and possible in man’s second-reality
is always messy and uncertain.

What history doesn’t reveal – it conceals.

Progress from the view of those in the city can be described as moving from
the illegal to the merely immoral.

The real prize possible from Life is not subsequent to any publicly recognized contest.

As he intensified his efforts, one man forbade his self from saying anything that
he himself didn’t understand.

Someone emails to say that their reading of the Daily News here has proven to be
a two-pronged experience;
first, he says: that before his exposure to these writings he had never heard of an
inner rebel, and two: now that he has and has read the many things herein said about such he doesn’t have any idea what one is.
What can be more gleeful than having a rug pulled out from under you
that you didn’t even know was there.

Reminder: There is one outside-the-city-fact that obliterates all other so-called facts:
the mother of all mothers — the bomb of all bombs.
