AND WOULD MARK THE BEGINNING OF THE GREAT SILENT PEACE.

“WHAT CAN WE SAY!?”: A LOCALLY DIRECTED ESSAY
BEING A MYSTIC AROUND THESE HERE PARTS IS LIKE TRYING TO “CUSTOM DESIGN” YOURSELF MENTALLY,(AS FAR AS IS POSSIBLE), UNDER CONDITIONS THAT ARE ALL BUT IMPOSSIBLE.

FOR EVERY TEN THOUSAND WHO RESPOND -NONE SAVE TWELVE, ARE ACTUALLY FIT.
WHILE THIS MAY OR MAY NOT BE TRUE,
DO NOTE HOW READILY THE TEN THOUSAND (PLUS OTHERS), WILL ACCEPT IT AS GOSPEL.
….(THOSE OF SPECIAL SENSITIVITY,[SHOULD THEY FIND THIS A BIT HARSH], MAY CONSIDER THE WORD, “MATHEMATICS”,[AS USED HERE], AS A SYNONYM FOR, “JOKE OF THE DAY”.)

ONE EARLY SPRING DAY)
AS THEY SAT IN THE BACK YARD BY THE SEPTIC TANK,
A LAD GRACIOUSLY INQUIRED OF HIS PATERNAL FATHER:
“WHY DO I GET THE IMPRESSION THAT EVEN THOUGH THERE MAY BE REAL,
INDIVIDUAL MYSTICS YET ALIVE ON THIS PLANET AT ANY GIVEN TIME
THAT THERE ARE NO REAL GROUPS OF MYSTICS SO EXTANT”,
AND SCRATCHING HIS NOSE, (IN THAT PARTICULAR MANNER NOT PECULIAR TO HIM).
THE ELDER REPLIED: “IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT THE QUESTION IS STUPID)
BUT SOUNDS SORT OF INSIGHTFUL,
I’LL ANSWER JUST THE SAME, BY PUTTING IT TO YOU, MY LADDIE:
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A WOLF PACK MADE UP OF ONLY DOMINATE MALES!?”,
AND THE YOUNG BOY DUTIFULLY RECEIVED THIS REPLY,
PONDERED IT,
LOOKED OFF ABOVE THE TREES,
THEN DOWN BETWEEN HIS LEGS,
CHEWED ON HIS LIP, AND THOUGHT:
“WITHOUT DOUBT, THE REMARKABLE TALENT OF ALLEGORY Is THAT
IT CAN RESCUE A MAN’S THOUGHTS, (IF HE BE SO INCLINED),
FROM THE MOST UNCERTAIN OF WATERS.”,
AND THE OLD MAN PLAYFULLY SLAPPED HIM CROSS THE HEAD,
CHUCKLING AND SAYING: “I HEARD THAT!”

IN RE THE MATTER OF: MAN THE CIVILIZED
THE QUESTION IS: WHAT CONSTITUTES BEING CIVILIZED?, AND:
HOW CIVILIZED IS MAN?
AND THE PROPER RESPONSE IS TO ASK: JUST HOW FAR CAN MAN LIVE FROM NATURE?, AND HOW DID HE EVER GET THE IDEA THAT HE COULD EVEN DO SO!?

ONE REASON MYSTICS TEND TO BECOME MORE FAMOUS AFTER THEY DIE IS THAT THEY CAN THEN BE MADE INTO MORE SYMPATHETIC SEEMING FIGURES,
IN THAT SENSE THEN YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO SEE HOW NORMALLY KNOWN, “RELIGIOUS SAINTS” ARE LIKE DEAD, FREE-LANCE MYSTICS WITH THEIR IRRITATING CORNERS ROUNDED OFF,
AND LAID OVER WITH A FUZZY, COMFORTING VERBAL COVER OF SOME KIND,

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING A MAGICIAN AND A MYSTIC
“”– THE RULE FOR MAGICIANS IS:
TELL THE AUDIENCE WHAT TRICK IT IS YOU’RE GOING TO DO; DO IT,
