Notes by TK

The “rude” approach vs. the “nice” approach to enlightenment. All religion is based on civilized, ‘nice’ and is useless; mystic is ‘rude’ –disreputable but useful.

MEN MADE LIP WORDS LIKE, “DUMB, AND STUPID”, (THOUGH THEY SIGNIFY NAUGHT), To TRY AND EXPLAIN WHY THEY ACT LIKE THEY DO.

TOPOGRAPHY IN THE REAL WORLD – YEAH, THAT ONE!
THE KING OFFERED A SUBSTANTIAL PRIZE FOR ANYONE WHO COULD MAKE AN AMOUNT OF WATER DISAPPEAR PERMANENTLY.

As HE SAT WITH HIS NEWSPAPER, PERUSING AN ITEM CONCERNING LABOR STATISTICS,
A MAN SUDDENLY THOUGHT:
ed” “Do YOU REALIZE THAT ANY JOB, OTHER THAN THAT OF GROWING FOOD,
IS SIMPLY SOME FORM OF ENTERTAINMENT!?”,
— HE SAT STUNNED FOR A BIT,
THEN BEGAN TRYING TO SEE IF THIS COULD SOMEHOW ALSO BE APPLIED TO
THE WORKINGS OF A MAN’S MIND.

THE SIMPLE, (EVEN WHEN EDUCATED AND TRAVELED),
WILL ATTEMPT TO EVIDENCE THEIR INTELLIGENCE BY
el.”‘” PROCLAIMING THAT MAN NOW LIVES IN UNIQUING TRYING TIMES.
(AND IF THEY REALLY WANT TO MAKE A SPLASH, THEY’LL GIVE IT A NAME.)
GAD!, THE SIMPLE! —
WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT THEM OTHER THAN: “GAD!, ARE THEY SIMPLE!”

DRIVING ALONG ONE DAY FEELING, FOR NO PARTICULARLY APPARENT REASON, QUITE PLEASED TO BE ALIVE, A MAN THOUGHT TO HIMSELF:
,…..–, “IT’S EASIER TO BE ANGRY THAN HAPPY,
AND EASIER TO BE ANGRY IF YOU FEEL BAD,
AND EASIER TO FEEL BAD IF YOU DON’T TRY TO FEEL OTHERWISE, SO THERE!”, AND ON HE DROVE.

CONVERSATION OVERHEARD OUTSIDE A LABORATORY:
“ALL SCIENCE IS MATHEMATICS,”
“YOU MEAN THAT ALL SCIENCE IS ULTIMATELY REDUCIBLE TO A MATHEMATICAL EQUATION?
“No, I MEAN THAT ALL SCIENCE, (JUST LIKE MATHEMATICS),
IS MADE-UP, NON-EXISTENT, AND NEVER REACHES A FINAL NUMBER IN ITS COUNTING.”
WE NOW RETURN YOU TO YOUR NORMAL, MENTAL HALLWAY.
….WHERE YOU DON’T HAVE TO THINK ABOUT SUCH THINGS!
95042-9
THE CONTINUING BELIEF OF THE SIMPLE
IF THE GODS DON’T SAVE US THE GOVERNMENT WILL,
AND IF IT BEGINS TO LET US DOWN THE GODS WILL SURELY STEP BACK IN.
D NOW A FEATURE: WHY IT IS BETTER TO BE A HUMAN THAN A HYENA
WELL, I SHOULD THINK THAT’S PRETTY OBVIOUS! —
BECAUSE HYENAS LACK THE ABILITY TO BELIEVE THAT ANY SUPERIOR FORCE WILL EVER DO ANYTHING TO THEIR ADVANTAGE.

ONE GUY SAYS:
“I DIDN’T USE TO BELIEVE IN ANY OF THOSE CONSPIRACY THEORIES r” UNTIL I BEGAN TRYING TO BRING MY CONSCIOUSNESS UNDER MY OWN CONTROL,
AND NOW AFTER SEEING JUST HOW DIFFICULT IT IS WELL
I JUST DON’T KNOW ANY MORE.”
95042-11
THE ENTIRE, NORMAL WORLD OF MAN’S INTELLECT IS BUILT ON NOTHING -NOTHING, THAT IS, COMPARED TO THE REALITY OF FOOD, WATER, AND SUNSHINE,
DOES THIS NOT REVEAL BOTH THE DAZZLING WONDER, AND CURIOUS IRRELEVANCY OF THIS HUMAN SINGULARITY!?
25042-12
WHAT THEY DON’T TEACH YOU IN ROUTINE SCHOOL:
THAT THE OPPOSITE OF ANY THING IS THE SAME THING.
95042-13
LOOKING OUT TO THE WEST OF THE CITY, A MAN MUSED IN SOME WONDER: “IS IT NOT STRANGE TO REALIZE THAT IN THAT DIRECTION
RESIDE PEOPLE LIVING HOURS BEHIND US IN TIME!?”,
THEN HE LOOKED IN A SIMILAR MANNER AT HIS OWN NERVOUS SYSTEM, AND WAS EVEN MORE STRUCK.
* * *
AN ALERT MAN’S MAXIM UPDATING
THOSE STRUGGLING TO EXPAND THEIR CONSCIOUSNESS ARE
FAR BEYOND THE MERELY IMPOSSIBLE PALE OF:
“TRY TO LIFT THEMSELVES UP BY THEIR OWN BOOTSTRAPS” –
NAY, THEY’RE AT THE PLACE WHEREIN THEY MUST
PUSH THEIR PRESENT INTO THE FUTURE USING ONLY THEIR OWN INTELLIGENCE.

FOR ASSISTANCE, A MAN WROTE TO DR. No NAME:
“DEAR DOCTOR: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE — IS THERE A DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN: INTELLIGENCE, AND ATTENTION?”
AND THE DOCTOR REPLIED:
“No, THERE IS NOT — BUT ONLY IF YOU INCLUDE A CERTAIN MODIFIER BEFORE
THE WORD: ATTENTION.”
95042-15
IF THE MOTTO OF ROUTINE EXISTENCE IS:
“MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY WITH MINIMAL EFFORT”
IS IT ANY WONDER HOW DIFFICULT IT IS
To EXTEND ONE’S INDIVIDUAL MENTAL OPERATIONS!?
95042-16
THERE WAS ONCE A KING WHO BUILT HIMSELF A CASTLE,
BUT HE WAS A RATHER MINOR FIGURE,(JUST ONE RULER AMONG MANY),
AND THE PALACE PERFORCE..; REFLECTED HIS STATUS —
SO HE BEGAN A REMODELING PROGRAM, (WHICH LASTED UNTIL HIS DEATH),
WHEREBY HE CONTINUALLY RE-PAINTED, RE-SURFACED & EXPANDED THE CASTLE’S EXTERIOR.’
WHILE INTERNALLY,–(WHEREIN RESTED HIS APPARENT SEAT OF AUTHORITY),
THINGS REMAINED AS HAD THEY ALWAYS BEEN.
THUS IS THE FATE OF ALL MINOR MINDS, AND CAPTIVES OF COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS.
95042-17
OKAY –
SINCE I’VE ALREADY “GIVEN IT AWAY” TODAY, PIECE-MEAL, LET’S SPELL IT OUT POINT-BLANK:
YES, THERE IS A CONSPIRACY, AND IT’S NAME IS: “MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY WITH MINIMAL EFFORT”.

How LIFE, (BEING BALANCED & EQUITABLE), COMPENSATES FOR VARIATIONS FROM SPECIES To SPECIES

ALTHOUGH HIS CREDENTIALS SEEMED VALID ENOUGH,
UPON CLOSER EXAMINATION, ONE MAN DISCOVERED HE WAS NOT WHO HE CLAIMED TO BE.
95042-20
WHILST READING, A MAN CAME UPON THIS SENTENCE:
“FEELING THEIR LIVES TO BE WITHOUT PURPOSE OR KNOWN DIRECTION,
/6-‘ MODERN MAN HAS TURNED WITH GREAT HOPE TO THE YOUNG SCIENCE OF PSYCHOLOGY.”,
HE STOPPED THERE, AND PONDERED THE SCENE DEPICTED,
BUT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY NOTED TO HIMSELF:
“AT FIRST THAT SOUNDS MEANINGFUL AND DESCRIPTIVE,
BUT IT FAILS TO SPEAK PLAINLY
FOR THE SCIENCE OF PSYCHOLOGY WAS NOT THERE FOR MAN TO TURN TO IN HIS NEED,
BUT WAS INVENTED BY MAN BECAUSE OF THE NEED.”
No TRUE MYSTIC LISTENING NEEDS. ANY MORAL ATTACHED HERETO.

DEBATABLE WEIRDNESS UPDATE
WHETHER UFO’s EXIST OR NOT IS IRRELEVANT UNLESS YOUR MIND IS ONE OF THEIR LOCAL LANDING SITES.

95042-22
THE SIMPLE ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT SOME PARTICULAR TIME WAS MORE SIGNIFICANT THAN OTHERS
-“”. WHILE THE MORE COMPLEX REALIZE THAT ALL ERAS ARE STRIKINGLY AND
SEAMLESSLY SINGULAR,
“PAPA) IS THIS WHY MYSTICS NEVER GO ANY WHERE!?” “THAT’S RIGHT SON, WHERE DO THEY HAVE TO GO!?”

95042-23
THE FIRST SPEAKER STATED THE SUBJECT FOR THE DISCUSSION:
“MAN: A MONKEY WITH A BIGGER BRAIN.”,
AND IMMEDIATELY ONE OF THE OTHER PARTICIPANTS RESPONDED BY ASKING:
“A BIGGER BRAIN THAN WHAT?”,
AND THE OPENING SPEAKER REPLIED:
“BIGGER THAN NECESSARY TO JUST BE A MONKEY.”,
AND ALL WAS QUIET FOR SEVERAL MOMENTS, UNTIL A THIRD VOICE MUSED ALOUD:
“THEN WHY DOESN’T HE PUT IT TO FULL USE, I WONDER!?”,
…(AND IT FELL APART FROM THERE).
95042-2
ORDINARY THOUGHT, TO THE MORE-CONSCIOUS,
IS LIKE A FREEZE DRIED VERSION OF YESTERDAY’S RAIN.
…OKAY, A DEFINITION: THE ENLIGHTENED: THOSE WITH INVISIBLE SLICKERS
10 PROTECT THEM FROM THE IMAGINARY RAINS.

THE LENGTHS TO WHICH SOME PEOPLE WILL GO To GET SMALLER
SO MUSED ONE MAN:
“IF A PARABLE IS A SHORT ALLEGORY,
AND A PROVERB IS A SHORT PARABLE,
THEN WHAT IS EVEN MORE CONDENSED THAN A PROVERB?”,
AND THEN IT HIT HIM! — LIFE ITSELF.

ONE MAN SAT AT HOME AND WENT EVERY WHERE,
WHILE ANOTHER MAN WENT EVERY WHERE BUT NEVER LEFT HOME,
WHAT ARE YA GONNA DO!? — HOW ARE YOU EVER GONNA WIN!?

DRUGS WORK BEST ON AN EMPTY STOMACH, AS DOES STUPIDITY ON THE MIND,
95042-27
ARISING ABRUPTLY FROM HIS CHAIR IN HIS LIBRARY,
SPURED BY A SUDDEN INSIGHT,
A MAN WAS MOVED TO ALOUD DECLARE:
“DID NOT MEN WISH TO BE LED AND TOLD WHAT TO DO
THERE WOULD BE NO GOVERNMENTS, RELIGIONS, OR WORLD OF ACADEMIA!”,
THIS SHOUT AWOKE THE DOG AT HIS FEET SUFFICIENT FOR IT TO MUSE:
“YEAH, AND ALSO: I WOULDN’T HAVE YOU,
AND YOU WOULDN’T HAVE ME,
AND PLUS! — WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN
WHAT YOU CALL YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS, AND WHAT NORMALLY PASSES THROUGH IT!?”
ASK YOU: IS IT PROBABLY A GOOD THING THAT MEN CAN’T READ THE MINDS OF OTHER CREATURES!?
95042-28
AFTER THE YOUNG MAN HAD BEEN AWAY FOR SEVERAL YEARS AT THE MYSTICAL SCHOOL,
HE WROTE HOME TO HIS MAMMA:
“ONE OF THE FUTURE BENEFITS I CAN ALREADY PERCEIVE FROM MY
INVOLVEMENT IN THIS ACTIVITY
IS THE AMOUNT OF MONEY I WILL SAVE ON ENTERTAINMENT.”
95042-29
How To MEASURE THE PROGRESS OF THOSE WHO DON’T BELIEVE IN THE OBVIOUS — SAVE YOUR EFFORT!
95042-30
SHAKING A FIST AT THE CITY, A MAN ANNOUNCED: “I WILL BE IMPRESSED WITH PROGRESS
‘lg.. WHEN SCIENTIFIC STUDIES OF SATIRE ARE POSSIBLE.”
(YOU DO REALIZE BY NOW, THAT THE REASON I MUST MAKE UP STORIES LIKE THIS IS BECAUSE THEY CANNOT ACTUALLY OCCUR IN THE ORDINARY WORLD.
CIVILIZATION, [THAT IS, THE FLOCK], MAY MANY “STRANGE THINGS” BE, BUT SUICIDAL, [CONSIDERING IT AS A DISTINCT ENTITY], IT IS NOT! — BUT THEN OF COURSE, IT IS NOT A DISTINCT ENTITY ! —
SO WHAT ARE’YA GONNA DO NOW!?
“HEY, WAIT A MINUTE”, SAYS A GUY, “Do YOU MEAN THIS SERIOUSLY!?, OR IS IT A SATIRE OF SOME SORT!?”)
95042-31
THE SIMPLE HOLE-IN, I MEAN, SOLUTION-TO THE MYSTIC’S CONUNDRUM
HOW CAN THOSE, MORE-DEMANDING AND ANXIOUS TO DEVELOP CONTROL OVER THEIR ATTENTION,
AND EXTEND THE SCOPE OF THEIR INDIVIDUAL CONSCIOUSNESS DO SO WITHOUT BECOMING LADENED WITH ANXIETY?
EASY — SUCCEED IN DOING IT.

THE MORE ALERT MAN’S WALKING AROUND PROVERB
A GOOD MEMORY IS LIKE A RASH ON THE INSIDE OF THE DEVIL’S THIGHS.

ANOTHER WAY TO BE SURE THAT YOU’RE STILL ORDINARY AND SIMPLE IS THAT WHENEVER YOU’RE EXPOSED TO REALITY BEING PUT UNDER A DISSECTOR’S SCAPEL /– YOU AUTOMATICALLY ASSUME HE’S A PATHOLOGIST,
AND THAT THE RESULTS WILL BE A CRITIQUE.
95042-33
DURING A LEMONADE BREAK A GUY THOUGHT:
“A MORE-CONSCIOUS MAN WOULD BE LIKE AN ELEPHANT AMONG FLEAS – OR ELSE LIKE AN ELEPHANT THAT ENDED LIP ON THE WRONG PLANET!?!”
95042-34
THE BATTLE CRY OF THR WOUNDED: “HELP — I’M WOUNDED!” ….(THAT SHOULD HAVE READ: BATTLE CRY OF THE ORDINARY.)
95042-35
SIMPLE SHEEP ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT THE FLOCK-AS-A-WHOLE KNOWS BETTER WHAT IS GOOD FOR THEM THAN THEY DO,–
— THIS IN SPITE OF THE RIGHT-OUT-IN-THE-OPEN-FACT THAT
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS, “THE FLOCK AS A WHOLE”,
EVERYONE KNOWS THIS,
BUT ONLY MYSTICS CAN DEAL WITH IT1 (WITHOUT THEIR SWEATERS BECOMING UNRAVELED).

/1-‘ THE ORIGINAL. EFFORT TO INDIVIDUALLY STABILIZE ONE’S CONSCIOUSNESS STARTED OFF PRETTY SIMPLE,
BUT BOY! — JUST LOOK AT IT NOW!

THEN HE EXPLAINS THE EVEN MORE OBSCURE, AND FINALLY HE EXPLAINS THE OBVIOUS.
