“… and Kyroot Said:” These words were read aloud prior to a pithy , poetic epigram that Jan wrote to better capture the moment than prose. Usually presented in groups of fifteen to thirty, they were read prior to Jan coming on stage and were topically related to what he intended to speak about in his “lecture.” Understand “and Kyroot Said…” as a literary tool letting the listener know that what follows is something nonlinear and (perhaps) not to be taken literally.
The name ‘Kyroot’ is made up and not intended to connote any particular tradition. Kyroot is a stand in for Life in all its uncertainties and complexities. And Kyroot said… could be heard as: “And Life said…”(For more verbiage, see About Kyroot above.)
