BEATNIKS?? NO!!!

if you as a cat are way out too & we are in the same groove then you say simply “I dig.” you dig yourself. if you do not dig, you lose your superiority over the Square & so are less likely to be cool (to be situated in the situation) dig? because you have swung where the Square has not, or because you have allowed to come to consciousness a pain, a guilt, a shame or a desire which the Square has not had the courage to face. To be cool is to be equipped, and if you are equipped it is more difficult for the next cat who comes along to put you down. one can hardly afford to be put down too often, or one is BEAT, one has lost one’s confidence, one has lost one’s will, one is impotent in the world of action … indeed closer to dying than being fully alive, and therefore it is even more difficult to recover enough energy to try to make it again, because once a cat is BEAT he has nothing to give, and no one is interested any longer in making it with him. This is the terror of the hipster—to be beat—
