Kyroot to :05.
The inability to distinguish between thinking-of-action and action; the taking of a thought run thru the nervous system as being one’s own. It is a failure to see the molecular difference between the deed itself and the agreeing to the deed. Red and Blue circuit operations are not subject to this subtle process of nutrition. This relates to fact that no energy conversion can be total, complete. Descartes and Hume are now part of man’s intellectual molecular memory—and any effect their thought has on another in this day can never have the same effect as it did on them originally.
Relation to First Story /FS dynamic—agreement to deed as FS-reason-why. A great FS is one that gives hearers the feeling “that could be right—It fits”; e.g., 2+2=4 or 4×9=36 or 36/3=12 is a complete proposition: a great FS is an isolation of say, the 2+2=4 portion. The 1.5 FS: “secret knowledge” is even more sophisticated because it cannot be found/tried like religion can. The agreement to it gives the sensation of actually finding secret knowledge. There is a further extension of this blind spot/sweetness: some payoff is gained from this overall unsatisfying process—if you’re alive there is always some payoff, nourishment, but it is ultimately meaningless…a little bit of inept info while standing in the slaughter queue.
A great FS: civil service reform act ostensibly to protect civil servants from the political expenses demanded by their appointing govt when it comes to election time; a kind of shielding from the job discontinuity resulting from a new regime voted into power. But Life’s real purpose was to limit the civil servants political influence—to make things easier for the real powers, the Continuity Class, to maintain their influence.
The “On Love” story. Patient claims he has never experienced deep love. Dr. Love tells him no one else does either. So what to do? Pretend non-stop to be more in love than you really are.

One ole City sorehead’s mortal survey seems to have
consisted of the following comment, “Being human won’t keep you
from doing what you want, it just keeps you from enjoying it.”
Don’t casually pretend to be dumber than you are unless you
are absolutely, positively sure you ARE pretending.

The advice bankers have given to governments, industry, and
the public has unfailingly been good for the bankers.
A central minded young man in the City, attempting some form
of romanticism, wrote to his love thusly, “Each time I gaze upon
your picture, touch the place where you last sat, and catch the
lingering aroma of your hair, I think of me.”
The most common cause of death is from being treated.
Treatments kill, and remedies maim.

EVERY language is a foreign language.
One thing at least a Revolutionist doesn’t have to worry
about is the recognition by, or the opinion of, his peers.

One, somewhat testy guy with apparent revolutionary
inclinations recently was overheard to say, “For years, I

generally low level of humanity’s intelligence, and then one day
— BAM!, it hit me, I understood ‘why,’ and besides being

It may further come down to, laugh-or-be-laughed-at.
Being dumb is YOUR side effect of being alive.
If you’re gonna ask for favors, don’t ask — DEMAND.
