Words Can Convert Failure Into Success

Kyroot to :05. Expansion of Life’s creation thru man of the thing-specific from the universal processional flow.There is a cyclical rejuvenation or resurrection of the thing-specific back into process …and then back into thing-specificity again. It happens like an on/off switch converting from one to the other every few seconds, minutes, or hours. Three examples: memory, criticism and verbal reality. Memory creates the thing-specific (it can only remember specifics, not processes), but the recalling itself is process generating more thing-specifics, i.e, the “bad marriage” re-lived in mind for a few moments then put back to rest again.
Criticism of all forms creates the thing-specific by referring to an artist or his ‘work’ as a thing, but the critical process is just that: an energy exchange process generating further thing-specifics. Note the connection of these two to man’s cyclical attempts at change: desire to change (thing-specific): failure (success) to change; new desire to change: new failure (success) to change, etc.
Verbal reality: words can convert failure to success. Example of mediocre recording artist unable to land a record contract for ten years; when he finally does get one, the advertising emphasizes his first recording in over ten years!!” This is not cleverness on the part of the record company… it is Life’s doing.
The reverse (converting success to failure): “the computer” (thing-specific) is a solution to the increasing problem of inefficiency in mechanical memory and calculation processes in business, but it raises new problems to be cured (educating employees to properly use the computers). The truly cured disappears (E.g., problem of polio, which is routinely dealt with). It always boils down, in ongoing processes, to attempting to “cure the cure”.
