squally

and blusterous black clouds, and behind dat blackness is a tropical storm a-blowin.

De squall from a hurricane will not be long fore it will sort of break up in its pass over.

But fore it gets cleared up good, you will see another squall formin, and each time it blowin a little harder. (sighs)

I never forgot dat hurricane in 1926, how de people was standing by dere door dere lookin to windward.

I never forgot how dem people looked when dat hurricane come down-dey looked like children. De people stood dere in dere door lookin to windward at dat awful sky, and dere faces - dey looked like children.

No! A mon got to have de guts of his opinion!

And my opinion is, dey too many fellas like some dat I got aboard of dis vessel dat don't know nothin and don't care - no self-respect! Dass what it is - self-respect!

Used to be dat in Caymans a mon respect hisself.

He done his job, took care of his family, all of dat.

He had his land and his own provision ground; he built his own catboat and hung his own nets.

Things like dat. But now dey all gettin like de cook dere, like dat engineer I got - don't motter what de color is no more, dey all actin like colored humans.


- Peter Matthiessen, from Far Tortuga

bp apology

In literature it is necessary to avoid:

Non-conformist interpretations of famous personalities. For example, describing Don Juan's misogyny, etc.

Grossly dissimilar or contradictory twosomes like, for example, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, Sherlock Holmes and Watson.

The habit of defining characters by their obsessions; like Dickens does, for example.

In developing the plot, resorting to extravagant games with time and space in the manner of Faulkner, Borges, and Bioy Casares.

In poetry, characters or situations with which the reader can identify.

Characters prone to becoming myths.

Phrases, scenes intentionally linked to a specific time or a specific epoch; in other words, local flavor.

Chaotic enumeration.

Metaphors in general, and visual metaphors in particular. Even more concretely, agricultural, naval or banking metaphors. Absolutely un-advisable example: Proust.

Anthropomorphism

The tailoring of novels with plots that are reminiscent of another book. For example, Ulysses by Joyce and Homer's Odyssey.

Writing books that resemble menus, albums, itineraries, or concerts.

Anything that can be illustrated. Anything that may suggest the idea that it can be made into a movie.

Critical essays, any historical or biographical reference. Always avoid allusions to authors' personalities or private lives. Above all, avoid psychoanalysis.

Domestic scenes in police novels; dramatic scenes in philosophical dialogues. And, finally:

Avoid vanity, modesty, pederasty, lack of pederasty, suicide.

Jorge Luis Borges

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.



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 created 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 crime."

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 central banking system, mass 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.

American 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 mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully.
