The News

What man’s brain routinely processes is sufficient to be
called, “thinking.” But still-&-yet — all of the available data
is not getting read.

…..One man’s collateral cogitation: “Rather than dealing with
meaningless uncertainty and endless debate — just rip the paper
out ‘the damn machine.'”

What Is Going On In Life: This likely — they get up in the
morning.

Guess! — Go On — Guess: How often do those who don’t know
where — if any where — the public conveyance may be going, step
to the front of the crowd and announce: “Alright now — let’s
form a straight line and begin boarding in an orderly manner.”
Standing by himself, over by the Anti-Insurance Travel-
Protection, Coin-Operated, Policy-Dispenser Machine, a man mused
to himself: “Is it then only an independent-minded thinker who
can be ‘out-of-order’ in a proper and orderly fashion!?”

Stats From City Tables & Charts: The serious live the
longest! Well…..to them, it feels that way.

An Interwoven Audio and Neuro History Of Creatures With So-
Called “Lapels” — Man: At first — all was silent; then man
began to think; then man began to speak; then he started talking
louder! — then yelling! And finally began alternating between
yelling and whining. He was then set-&-ready for whatever mortal
fate lay before him.
Urban Observer’s Addendum: It is a continuing, technical
problem to sans-interference-hear the substratal voice of the
city above the ceaseless cacophony of the collective.

***

“Creation Story” From Another Creation: On the first,
second, third, and etc., days, God blah-blah-blah blahed, and on
the seventh he stopped and thought: Let’s see…..now I believe
I’ll give ’em some ideas like: wrong, stupid, infidel, and
dunderhead.”, and off he walked, laughing to himself.

***

To try and better balance-the-forces, and even-up-the-odds,
one man began to think of the 2 major divisions of himself as:
His right cerebral hemisphere and left-hand being one, and his
left-lobe and right-hand constituting the other.

***

After life had finished man’s original dictionary and
realized how “Z” had to follow “A”, with “L” and “Q” and all them
others in between, it thought: “Jeeze! — now I’ve got to come
up with the idea of ‘sequence’!”

***

Jogging With The Mind: You can “take your pulse”, or it’ll
take you.

***

Vis a vis a thinker’s older, collectively-based ideas, his
fresher, personal ones are like — friendly predators.
A Common Theological Error Herein Corrected: The true
“conversion” of a man would be in his own intellectual self-
consumption.

***

There are no “monuments” to man’s stupidity — can you
figure out — why?!?

***

Local conditions, (as always — somehow looking after life’s
best interests), once told some creatures in its care: “You can
have your choice: you can not fear death now — and then get
real frightened just before you die — or, you can fear it now
and then have it not mean much when the time actually comes.”
…I tell you — is life a real kidder or what.

***

There are three reasons that raccoons have little hands with
opposable thumbs: One is so that they can stick them down in
chipmunk holes; a second is so they can take the lids off of
garbage cans; and the third is because something had to go on the
end of their arms.
Dassn’t we not to deliberate on how the above might apply to
man’s neural existence as well!?

The “Pain-Of-The-Weight-Room” Transferred To Less Physical
Areas Of The Gym: Intellectually: If you don’t — ache all over 
— you ain’t doin’ it correctly.
Revision Of The Above Headline For Those Iron-Pumpers
Addicted To Verbal Exactness: “The Pleasurable ‘Pain”ù Of
Intellectual Weight Lifting.”

***

A Thinker’s Neural Steroids: Any thing the collective won’t
eat.

***

To the Definitions Desk, driver: Evil: The necessary
landfill for the mind’s urban expansion. In the incipient days
of language, no thinker was around to offer the corrected,
inflective degrees of certain adjectival comparison, e.g.: evil,
evil-ER, stupid-EST.

***

In the intellectual world of show biz — new city plays have
no legs which do not assail earlier ones.

***

Columbus and Magellan were sittin’ on a stoop, shootin’ the
fat, and Chris noted: “The life of an explorer seems to be
helped by having a home-life you don’t much care for.” And
Ferdinand looked far away and replied: “And I’ve thought the
same thing regarding my intellectual world.”
Log Note via Butiny On The Mountie: The term “don’t much
care for” is just a sailor’s way of saying “boring-approaching-
annoying” — which is just enough to get him — out of port.

***

There is a dual basis on which to suspect that a man is
becoming religious: One is that he begins to believe it is
proper & possible to go from mistreating oneself to mistreating
others, and the second is just the opposite.

***

Drugs mean less to a man with a full stomach — so too,
fresh ideas to a man with a full mind.
***

To Be Ordinary; To be ordinary is to believe that if you
change it must be for some reason, while to be un-ordinary, (and
a thinker), is to change because it’s fun.
“Hey, conductor, let me off this train.” “Why, sir?”
“Because I say so.”

Definitions One & Two: Sequentially & Consequentially:
1. A Sense-Of-Seriousness: The sense-of-frustration moved to the
city. 2. A Sense-Of-Seriousness: The sense-of-absurdity given
suitable dress.

***

In another place — once — local conditions got in a funny-
kinda-mood and told some people: “Hey — it’s up to you to make
your life seem more important and meaningful than it is — that’s
part of your basic responsibility.”
Even though I said that conditions were in a “funny kinda
mood” when they said this, I, of course, still made the story up,
inasmuch as life does not ordinarily speak to man so plainly
regarding fundamental affairs. But — thus is one part of the
above sentence, I put in to life’s mouth, a suitable battle
slogan though for a real thinker. To wit, the words: “It’s up
to you.”

***

If you finally accept the city’s priorities to be your own,
you’ll then never be able to change yours.

***

Now for a wrap-up of today’s sports activities: The fear-
of-death keeps the religious jumpy; the fear-of-debt keeps the
cheap on edge; and the fear-of-aging gives everybody the heebie-
jeebies.
And — as if anyone cared — there is almost a “W.O.” — a
“Way Out”! Oh please! — please kind sir! — do tell us what
this might be! That’s easy: Make your neural activity run twice
as fast as normal — in reverse!

***

Darwin De-Loused Along With Mendel Re-Mangled: Man’s
intellectual evolution is the planet’s premier example of “single
cell reproduction”.

Proverbial Concept Update: A Real Thinker: The true —
“Voice in the wilderness”. Okay: The silent voice in the
wilderness. Oh, alright — the silent voice in the imaginary
wilderness. Phew! — SEE!?!? — that’s why you so seldom ever
hear of ’em!

…..A man with his bags by the door, sitting on a machine, was
moved to muse: “Is it that new, extraordinary ideas can’t speak
— or simply that the older ones can’t hear them when they do?!”

***

In an imaginary dismissal of a thinker’s efforts, one city
told its people: “A man who will not attack you is not your
friend.”

***

If an ordinary mind does not have the collective’s assurance
that a particular thing is “entertaining”, it can never be sure
that it IS — entertaining.

***

As they discussed martyrdom, jihads, and certain aspects of
Saturday night fist-fights at places called “Big Al’s Emergency
Room,” neurons asked hormones: “Is self-completed suicide in
fact a form of acceptable — if not — honorable murder?” In the
above, please note — it was neurons who asked hormones this
question — and not the other way around!

***

All comparisons of man are ultimately — distractions. Thus
is accounted for, the never waning popularity of metaphors and
allegory.

…..A viewer asks: “Was that last one a joke? And is my
sense-of-seriousness such that I’ll always have to ask?”

***

Relief — Sweet City Relief — Is Never Too Far Away:
One shinny urbanite observes; “It’s not so difficult ‘playing
dumb’ when you are dumb.”
Once upon a time, an ageless kid turned around-&-about in
his mind, this: “What is there, in truth, to admire in a drunk
proclaimin’ his obvious condition!?” “Hey-y-y!” said local
conditions to some people as it grabbed them by their so-called
“lapels”, “Don’t you guys be listenin’ to that kinda crap — you
hear!?”
Relief — Sweet City, Sweet City Relief.

More, City Stratum Definitions: Religion: A merry go round
with Brillo-pad horsies.

***

As he revved up his engine, putting it in apparent —
“Reverse,” the man dismissed the warning sign by the toll gate,
by thinking to himself: “To hell with it! By just being
ordinary, I’ve already suffered all the tire damage possible!”

***

One mark of a real thinker is not cuts, or wounds — but his
own willful scabs.

Another Entry From Our: “City Level Dictionary”: Life:
The bus that always breaks-down before getting there.

***

To Do It: First, you’ve got to think faster than everyone
else; then you’ve got to think faster than you; then faster than
everyone else thinks they and you do, and ultimately, faster than
life wants you to believe is possible.
And: Life made one viewer believe I said, “Faster than is
proper”, rather than, “is possible.” …(And: I tried to get
you to ponder to what purpose is the mind made to believe there
is a difference between the two.)

***

All apparent “extraordinary intellectual feats” performed by
ordinary minds are but parlor tricks — the “real thing” probably
wouldn’t seem all that interesting.

Norman, a viewer writes: “I enjoy watching your program —
but have you noticed that the regular news shows are mainly
concerned with crime, illness and debt, and you’re not?!” Yes
Norm, we’ve noticed.

***
To think — Anything the collective takes seriously —
ain’t.
Ask yourself: What things is it that life lets even the
most ordinary of men believe are just obvious as hell? …And —
why those particular ones?

Words — A Definition: Poets’ original inspiration for the
concept of, “cannibalism”.

More Definitions No One Ever Dared Ask For: Mysticism:
The “hope” that the cats aren’t really TOTALLY in charge! — Or,
in the alternative: That they can be enticed to give the birds a
bigger say-so.

***

One man privately admits: “For some time, I was
inconvenienced by being ordinary.”

***

While at a basic, primordial level, hormones would see all
ideas of religion, mysticism, and transcendence as reactions to
man’s fear of death, a better telling-of-the-matter would be to
see them as — compensatory distractions from the life-long
deterioration of the mind.

The Head Cheerleader for the Weird Team lept, and led the
participatory yell: “Do we want faith?” And the crowd shouted,
“NO-O-O!” “Do we want hope?” “NO-O-O!”, they replied. “Do we
want help?” “Hell no!”, they yelled. What a weird team.

…..Historic Footnote: In the original story of the “Ferocious
Garden Of Paradise,” and man’s exit therefrom, the snake’s
correct name was, “Change”.

way in which the Hormel Brothers can assist cattle. Local
Conditions: What weird meat packers!

The Thing One More Time: It is — “That most excellent
adventure-with & resistance-to — The Inevitable.”

adventure-with & resistance-to — The Inevitable” as practiced by
you, and when not — “Pursued on your behalf.”

***

And finally — it’s “Kinda Like” time again: It’s kinda
like life eventually says to a real thinker: “From here on out,
I’ll give you the plain facts. If you want any modifiers, you’ll
have to prove them yourself.”
