novel Stranger in a Strange
Land, in which the term "grok" means "to understand so thoroughly that the
observer becomes part of the observed", is of mythical proportions.
Stranger in a
Strange Land, published in 1961, tells the tale of Valentine Michael Smith,
a human raised by Martians on Mars. The novel explores Valentine Michael Smith's interaction
with and transformation of
human culture on Earth.
Valentine Michael Smith demonstrates psychic
abilities and superhuman intelligence
coupled with a childlike naïveté. Valentine Michael Smith is
explicitly portrayed as a modern Prometheus, and implicitly as a
messianic figure for the materialistic
consumption and media oriented
21st century American culture he stumbles into.

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

behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on
cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.
social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as
the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power
rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media
