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.
Metaphors in general, and visual metaphors in particular. Even more
concretely, agricultural, naval or banking metaphors. Absolutely un-advisable
The tailoring of novels with
plots that are reminiscent of another book. For example, Ulysses by Joyce and
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.
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:

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
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, 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
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 corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been
preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate 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.
