The reversal of energy transfer by imitation of behavior (or answering with a return question) will stop the original natural transfer. What is said is not important –the energy transaction, circuit completion, is. Reversal prevents the completion of the energy flow. Problems in relationships = warts on hogs. The only possible City TOA (Thinking Of Action) in dealing with the basis of problem sources in human relationships (e.g., “failure to communicate the agenda of priorities”) is to pay increased attention to the other person (see their agenda or priorities) or to pay increased attention to one’s own priorities/motives.
The Real Revolutionist must ask himself in every potentially negative interaction: What personal profit can it be for me to respond to this? When the energy transaction presents itself, he is already involuntarily engaged, and his only option is to ask himself the question, to cut off the ordinary basis of looking at the other on the level of his priorities/motivations, or useless self-analysis. This will disrupt the ordinary flow. The corollary: if the reverse is the case (where you feel impelled to provocative dominance, to initiate the transaction), don’t look at it –ask the question of “what profit is there for me to act thus”.
There is a way to see man’s intelligence as a kind of “cat-door” in consciousness, allowing an “indoors” to him. It is a gauging, measuring mechanism between, and creating, difference in an undifferentiated whole.
And Kyroot Said…
A revolutionist doesn’t owe, but IS owed.
In ordinary warfare, no news from the front is considered

I sit alone in my lonely room, my blood running colder with
each tick of my forlorn clock. I gaze out of my dim window onto
the dreary landscape and think, Jeeze, I’m having someone ELSE’S

nineteenth century body.)
Why put all your eggs in a basket?
A young boy went to an attorney with a problem, and after
mentioning one possible approach he believed pertinent to his
cause, the attorney injected, “Now that’s hard to prove,” and
when he noted an alternative argument he’s told again, “That also
is hard to prove,” and a bit later is informed again that, “That,
too, is hard to prove,” and the lad sez, “So, mister lawyer man,
it’s ALL hard to prove? Is that it?” “Yeah kid, that’s about
the size of it.”
After being roundly rebuked, one City chap shouted back to
his attackers, “At least a horse’s ass doesn’t have to look at

“Only the pedantic survive,” said he. “Or,” added his
partner, “So it seems.”
