Speculation on, and planning for the future is really inverted reminiscence. Thinking is based on the past. The mind is pleasurably activated by re-experiencing, reiterating, its memories. This is deadly for the neural rebel, and his nervous system has a small piece that actively dislikes such recounting. (45:36) #3313

THERE’D BE NO AWAY TO GET TO

One historian-cum-philosopher says that after careful study and deep reflection,
when he looks back on the past, everything makes sense and seems predictable;
he adds however, that in attempting to look forward into the future:
“I find myself on much less secure ground.”
(He further says he suspects that there is a much wider lesson to be learned from
this than may first strike the eye.)
(“Could this be why men enjoy hearing the scores of yesterday’s games
over anticipating today’s?”)
In the city, diners wishing security will choose rotten meat over fresh.
When operating maximally, the certain-man’s mind is like an explosion of
totally unexpected openings.
“Take note,” said one ole man to his kid in the city, “there come times when
you must tempt yourself – not always can you depend on the kindness of others.”
(“I always thought that the Giant got a bad rap in the Beanstalk story.”)
From an uncommon, radical perspective, only the man-who-knows
can make his self do what it doesn’t by its genetic nature, really want to do,
no matter its protestations to the contrary.
(“So!” says Jack, “I actually wanted that humongous son of a bitch to fall on top of me – is that what you’re telling me!?”
In man’s fairy tale reality, stranger things have occurred.)
Whenever he is about to speak, one man issues a high wind warning.
For any situation that causes great stress, one man has decided that he has two possible solutions:
1. If there’s any way out – take it,
2. If there’s any way out – don’t.
(But he may not be close enough to the human norm to be listened to.)
When fired upon, only the certain-man may rush out to catch the bullet in his teeth.
The man who has cracked-the-case and solved-the-great-mystery
may have a trunk full of souvenirs from his exploits but no one will ever know.
After he kept hearing that everyone has an unconscious mind that actually controls them, one man named his Jim Henson.
One man wants to charge his inborn thinking with abuse of his consciousness.
There was a man who worked all of his life — then died;
there was another man who worked all his life, and also died,
but they were quite different men, not just in their genetic makeup, but in their work.
(“Yeah, but you could spend your whole life trying to get out of Cleveland
and still never find the bus that would take you away from there!”
“Jeeze!– talk about hell: dying-in-Cleveland.”)
When the waitin’ room gets smelly – the smelly keep on a’waitin’.
In the more sophisticated areas of the city, a man without sham humility
is probably lacking sham altogether.
Current rumor among some is that time is just a fad.
(Guess you need to stay tuned for further clarification of this story.)
After one man heard about the concept of spending quality-time with others,
he groused: “How come I didn’t hear about this back before I began associating
Without man’s second-reality, the field of advertising would not survive.
According to information filed by one of our stringers:
“If you’re in a bus station and they page: ‘Mr. Bullheaded Thunderclap,’
it is no time to visit the Traveler’s Service Desk.”
(We have just been informed by someone here in the main press room that this particular item originally came from something that occurred in one man’s mind, so take it for what it’s worth.)
(“But pop, doesn’t everyone take everything for what it’s actually worth!?”
“Yes, but as always: the line of profitable distinction is whether you are fully aware
of this or not.”)
