It May Not Be Right, But It Is Pertinent!

Kyroot to :06. Humorous reply by weather forecaster to impugned accuracy: “It may not be right, but it’s pertinent”—is Life’s larger view put into words. Note how such is laughed at, accepted, but what could be more impertinent to the ordinary view than incorrect, erroneous info? The same is true of the operations of the brain, they are absolutely pertinent, right or wrong. Ditto, words.
Talk is what humans do between assignments. There is a crude knowledge of this at the ordinary level in the medical field: victims of trauma who do not talk are known to be severely, gravely injured. A sign of serious dysfunction.
Consider This Thing as the talk between “generational assignments”. I.e., what to do while waiting for- evolution to start.
The citizen in the state; the individual in the group. Life requests/demands of the citizen that he do what is good for the state. The premise is that what the citizen does for the state will not hurt him. This is not so for the Real Revolutionist since Life is served by men engaging in suffering, anger, fear, envy etc. The Real Revolutionist must learn how to avoid such service; must not answer the doorbell, not answer the phone when Life calls.
Being in government service, on the payroll of the bureaucracy “at the public trough”, is the closest a human can be to getting something for nothing. The bureaucrat could steal a dollar from everyone’s portion, not hurting anyone badly, yet doing quite well for himself. Consider this internally; are you sure such swindling of your other parts (non-verbal) would be beneficial? Do you really get something for nothing in this way?
How can a Real Revolutionist given any heed to what his nervous system says about This Thing? What kind of authority is influenced by the critical comments of his cruder, lower levels?
And Kyroot Said…

“At times, if you feel like you don’t know what you’re talking
about — don’t sweat it.”

“Look,” said the first guy, “You’re my very best friend, and
I wanna tell you a close, personal secret.” And his companion
nodded to proceed, so the guy continues, “If it weren’t for
feeling ‘bad’, I don’t think I’d feel at all.” And his friend
snorted, “I thought you were gonna tell me a secret!”
Regarding such earthbound comments as, “It’s just your
imagination,” do take intergalactic note that there is no such
thing as “just” anything. …(Never? Never. Never, ever? You
This one little, not-so-little, lad had a borrowed uncle who
sometimes would say to him, “Kid, if I may call you, ‘Kid’, Kid,
the secondary pursuit of health is no fit hobby for man nor
beast…(and I do believe you fit one of those categories).
The individual adventure of each revolutionist renders all
prior gods archaic.

privately useful if you’ll promise not to let it throw you in the
ordinary physical world…OK?” “OK,” came the reply, and the
voice continued, “Then dig: once you can see it, everyone and
everything’s a tough act to follow.” …(and Kyroot added,
He adjusted the mic, cleared his throat, and with all the

almost as good as the original one, other than the fact that it’s

Whines one guy, “‘Simply this, simply that’, simply,
simply, simply… Sometimes that’s all I hear and, by god,
there’s nothing ‘simply’ about it.”
A recent poll on that recuperating planet reveals that
sixty-eight percent of nouns and things, and eighty-three percent
of verbs and actions would be willing, under certain conditions,
to be metaphors.
A sturdy looking haberdasher once asked a revolutionist, “Is
your kind of activity to relieve stress or to induce it?” And
the rebel responded, “Do you know the difference?” And the guy
says he does. “OK, that is the difference.”

Even if local authorities officially proclaim that beyond
all doubt, without any question, you are a bona fide living
“expert” in some particular field, unless it is your intention to
be so, remember — you’re not.
