  [Kyroot to :05]
  [From a specific, quite valid view it is possible to see everything in the life of man as neutral in itself; everything has no preference in and of itself other than to serve Life's preference for growth. It is man that is not/cannot be neutral, that furnishes the inflaming passion of preference for whatever is otherwise neutral. Yet man looks outside himself for the basis of this prejudice in order to shift blame, which then allows the illusion that rehabilitation of same is possible. Ideas, words do not have the ability per se to drive men. The purpose of human intellect is to divide and classify the otherwise neutral data of nature on the basis of his built-in preferences. ]
  [There is no idea/system/observation that can reveal, encompass or describe reality without including the prejudice of the thinker/observer of same. This is not really known in the City although it is accepted as obvious truth (i.e., "the source of that statement must be taken into account in verifying its validity"). If man were newly intelligent he would see that this means everything he says is neutral, while it's his fellow humans that bring the pro or con to it. ]
  [All maps are ad hoc; for a given, temporary purpose. To use a map without understanding this will only serve to produce disorientation.  E.g., using a geologic map to find your way to a particular city or interstate. All knowledge is ad hoc, disposable, of limited lifespan. You must have a continuing awareness of this to do This Thing. ]
  [People go out to music concerts to be energized, excited (regardless of whatever reasons they say they go for). This would seem to be quite wrong in the instance of attendees at a Bach chamber music concert where the program is anything but stirring in comparison to a rock concert, in fact it is calming to the audience. This seems so only because humans have the prejudice that energy exchange is only of the latter type. But energy, too, is neutral per se. Remember the E-C gate; an energy exchange can go either way with equal profit for Life's purpose. The Real Revolutionist must be constantly aware of this: humans take neutral energy personally, which then makes it something else, puts a new spin on it, changes it...but always for Life's benefit.
  End.


 

And Kyroot Said....   (0450 )

     If problems don't happen on time, they cease to be problems.

                               ***

     A real revolutionist is a person who can give himself a hand  
while simultaneously bowing.

                               ***

     I met this one guy who said that on city applications he  
would list his vocation as "Apprentice Dolt," (and in less  
secular circumstances simply as "Lay Idiot").

                               ***

     To a revolutionist it's all the same, except for the parts  
that's not.

                               ***

     There is this other city park philosopher, who evidently  
has had some revolutionary exposure, who recently pronounced the  
following:  "If the position of truth and error, good and evil  
were any closer, priests would be intellectually door dinged, and  
philosophers would be chain link installers."  After a few  
minutes of silence, as we surveyed our quiet surrounds, he added,  
"If dead stood any nearer to life, we'd all have the willies even  
on weekends."

                               ***

     If the Biblical deluge had been of words and not water, what  
then might Noah have taken aboard?

                               ***

     Read a city poet who said that "the surest way to a woman's  
heart is by way of pity"; it must have worked since men have  
adopted a similar tack regarding their gods.  (What will humans  
think of next...if anything.)

                               ***

     One harried city-ite confided to me that during one  
especially restless night, he heard his brain say to him not to  
worry, that it was "just passing through."

                               ***

     Everyone's about the same distance away...(unless you're  
doing it wrong again).

                               ***
     Last weekend at that little tavern just off the main city  
park, I overheard this gent at a nearby table announce, "Well, at  
least I do not engage in exaggerated claims; in fact, I make  
fewer exaggerated claims than any man, woman, or priest who's  
ever lived at any time or place in history."

                               ***

     My kinda sports:  A team that decided 3rd base was a waste  
of time, and 4th down an unnecessary bother.

                               ***

     In the city, only the incomplete will satisfy.  OK then,  
let's get right to the marrow of the matter then:  In the city,  
only the unsatisfying will satisfy.

                               ***

     To forge the correct and necessary inner power structure,  
the revolutionist must adopt the operational attitude of, "If I  
said it, I can do it."

                               ***

     There's this chap in Geneva who's been partially lamed by  
the falling collected works of Robert Browning, who sez he knows  
the private number for Room Service for the whole world.  (He  
adds that it shuts down at nine.)

                               ***

     A real revolutionist is extremely weird...no, strike  
"weird."

                               ***

     Overheard a fellow say that since he's gotten involved in  
certain revolutionist activities, he's become so pleased and  
pressure packed that he's forgotten why he got involved in the  
first place.

                               ***

     If you treat all ideas the same they'll return the favor.   
If you treat all beliefs the same you won't need favors.

                               ***

     A real revolutionist is a person who can spell any word any  
way they want to.

                               ***

     In the city library, day before sometime, after several  
hours of deep reading in the area of ancient and modern matters  
metaphysical and spiritual, a man stood sweatily to his feet, and  
loudly proclaimed, "Intensity without intelligent direction is  
the way of the Gumby Warrior."

                               ***

     A real revolutionist never uses the same material once.

                               ***
