myth : God
God is the miraculous mystery that
self-aware life will never fully
comprehend as God is
impervious to finite reduction.
Physical images of gods come in two

"We despise all
reverences and all the
reverence which are outside the
pale of our own list of sacred objects.
And yet, with strange
inconsistency, we are shocked when
people despise and defile the objects which are
holy to us."
A Christian archeologist,
excavating in the 18th or 19th century happens upon a grotesque depiction of
Shiva-Nataraja wearing a
necklace of human skulls, sees a graven image.
He believes that the
creators of the conceptualized physical depiction actually worshiped the
sculpture as a god not as a physical
representation of a god who operated in
the social culture as an "idol worshiping
In the far distant future an archeologist happens
upon a grotesque sculptural depiction of a poorly fed man his face contorted in
agony, his hands and feet crudely nailed with rusty iron spikes to a rough hewn
wood cross, wearing a crown of razor sharp thorns which tear his skin creating
rivulets of blood and as a final afront an iron pike pierces his liver.
Without the cultural
knowledge of having heard the story of Jesus, this archeologist sees a man
being put to death in a most gruesome manner.
He could easily
surmise that a social culture
that worshiped an idol depicted in such a manner would
glorify torture and death and
be a most bloodthirsty homicidal social
culture - a graven image of a son being put to death in the most
agonizing fashion at the behest of his father.

One problem with Yahweh, according to
Valentinian Gnostism, is
that Yahweh forgot he was a metaphor.
Yahweh thought he was material.
And when Yahweh said, "I am god, " a voice was heard to say, "You are mistaken, Samael."
Samael means "blind
god": blind to the Lumière Infinie of which
he is simply a local historical manifestation.

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which
requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church
buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a
personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the
knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has
enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against
individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate
This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the
intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the
international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The
international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system,
corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex
and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered
behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on
cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.
