THERE WAS ONCE A SCHOOL OF INDIVIDUAL MYSTERY & SUCH
WHICH PICTURED THE HEIGHTENED STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS POSSIBLE IN MAN
AS AN UNKNOWN ROOM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HOUSE INTO WHICH EVERYONE IS BORN,
THEY SAID THAT FIRST A MAN MUST BE MADE AWARE OF ITS EXISTENCE,
THEN POINTED IN ITS GENERAL DIRECTION/
THEN REMINDED CONSTANTLY OF HOW DIFFICULT IT IS TO REMEMBER ITS EXISTENCE,
* * *
ACCORDING TO A CERTAIN DESERT LEGEND;
LIFE KEEPS MEN FROM TROUBLING THEMSELVES) (AND POSSIBLE ITSELF AS WELL)) OVER SOME PARTICULAR MIRAGE)
BY SURROUNDING THEM WITH AN ALMOST INFINITE VARIETY,

How TO TELL THAT YOU’VE LOCATED A SAFE MYSTICAL SCHOOL

ONE DAY, A CERTAIN COWBOY FOUND HIMSELF FAR OUT OF TOWN ON A WIDE OPEN PLAIN THAT SEEM TO SOMEHOW ABUT A RANGE OF MOUNTAINS, POSSIBLY IN THE DISTANCE, AND AS HE STOPPED AND ATTENDED TO THE SURROUNDINGS, THOUGHT:
“WHY WILL MEN ACCEPT, AS CLIMBING DIRECTIONS,
MAPPINGS FROM PRAIRIE DOGS
OF THEIR PRAIRIE DOG VILLAGES!?”
THEN A MAN, SITTING IN OUR AUDIENCE, HEARING THIS, THOUGHT:
“WHY, EVEN WITH FRESH ALLEGORIES, CONTINUE TO BRING UP THIS SUBJECT!? –
THE ALERT, BY NOW, MUST REALIZE THAT THIS IS THE WAY LIFE IS
TOPOGRAPHICALLY ARRANGED,
AND THAT EVERYDAY PEOPLE HAVE NO INTEREST OR NEED
TO EVER SEE ANY HIGHER — OR WIDER
THAN IS THEIR PRESENT VIEW.”

.mm •••••
IT’S HARD TO REMEMBER HOW UNDEPENDABLE & WEAK YOU ARE IF YOU DON’T REMEMBER TO DO WHAT YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO, AND NOTICE HOW SELDOM YOU REMEMBER TO DO IT.
ALL IN ALL, IT’S JUST HARD TO REMEMBER ANYTHING THAT’S NOT ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY
THE FINANCES OF GOVERNMENTS, AND THE GODS OF RELIGIONS ARE SIMILAR INTHAT
THEY BOTH EXIST ONLY THROUGH THEIR CITIZENS & SUPPORTERS CONTRIBUTIONS THERETO

MANY BELIEVE – NAY, HOPE – THAT PURSUING THE MYSTICAL PATH WILL MAKE THEM ABNORMAL,

You REALLY LAY INTO MAN’S LACK OF ATTENTIVENESS! — REALLY!,
