The Past Is Big Enough for Everyone

Notes by TK
Kyroot to :05. Everything exists locally. Locally, everything exists. The universe is big enough to accommodate all local existences. Everything exists that has a proponent. The past is big enough for everybody; has everything for everybody. The future holds nothing for anybody save death. The past is an ordinary man’s friend. Note the similarity of “good is all things to all people.’ Perfect partners/reflections in the dance: man’s belief in his internal complexity vs. belief in Life’s external complexity. Not to have sensation of internal complexity means not to speak of “what kind of a guy I am”.
A stereo amplifier has two inputs: high energy voltage with no signal, and a low energy voltage with signal (from record player, CD player etc.). These two it mixes to produce one output of higher energy, signal information which proceeds to the speakers. Man too is an amplifier in this way, receiving high energy chaotic input from Life’s Primal Flow and a second, low energy, information input. These are mixed and amplified for Life’s purposes; the nervous system provides the info input, the Red Circuit, WB/wet brain providing the raw power, the bigger a system is, the weaker its signal output.
And Kyroot Said…
Believe-it-or-don’t, but I know of this one place where
things can even be inferior to the counterfeit.
For those of you developing a taste for data that is
passionate, stimulating, even downright erotic, you might
remember the following: Info that “takes sides” is not a virgin,
cannot be faithful, and will not be the nurse when you wanna play
doctor, and vice versa.
“Saving for a rainy day” may turn out to be a disappointing
hobby if you move to the sun.
One of the smaller states on this world I once visited
announced that they wanted to “succeed” from their federation,
(and although I pointed out that succeed was not the verb they
were looking for under the circumstances, they continued to use
it.) But, back to the story. In their plans of becoming a
separate sovereignty they had already decided on their national
motto which was to be, and I quote, “It’s All According To What
Finding some of your relatives feeling disappointed is no
crime. Being surprised by such a discovery is.
Only a man uniquely trained in the mental martial arts can

Have you heard the tales about the hotter regions of that
constellation just over there where it is said that “the swelling

In a place where they never discuss hope there may be some.
Over in this other reality just before everything came
together it all came apart.
The places in most universes where the creatures still want
to make sacrifices to the gods are the same places where the gods
will apparently take ’em, and never say, “Thank you.”
Your freedom will not be found by beingù found not guilty.
If you wanted to, you could look at this as a generic
version of all the other things that claim to be this.
Retreat may not be a crime, but bumping into yourself while
doing so should be.
On this one planet it is against the law to paint, or
otherwise represent a likeness of any dead person, or of anything
else no longer available, or viable. What a backward lot.
…and Kyroot noodled: Is there a difference between a
backward lot, and a lot of backward?
Let us never forget the wonderful land of metaphor, and the
First the political revolutions, then the industrial ones,
then the scientific revolutions, and now — the door prize.
Hefty art commands hefty prices, (at least in Hefty-ville).
I heard of this one place where you weren’t allowed to speak
until you were intellectually house broken.
In some parts of several universes most all of their info is
One of the juicier parts of doing this is that you can’t
hardly do it wrong.
