It's not that anyone needs to be ready to "hear a tautology", but rather that one needs to be ready to accept 'what is'.
I, myself, would never have been able to accept 'what is', unless I was ready for it. And even then, I only realized the need for acceptance after pondering the syllogism
for a couple of weeks (the syllogism is what led to the tautology). Hence, the realization for the need to accept can take any number of forms or circumstances. Neither the syllogism nor the tautology is likely to be understood by everyone.
