"Where is beauty?
It is in a butterfly, but
when we chloroform it, lay it out on the dissecting table, and cut it apart,
beauty is gone.
Beauty is in a poem, but when we over-analyze the poem
to find exactly what is beautiful about it, beauty disappears from that too.
Beauty is in a painting, but can we reduce it to quantitative measures
of color and proportion, and then apply these to the standardized production of
Beauty is a relationship, not an objective property, and the
mass-production of generic relationships produces,
necessarily, an aesthetic that is equally phony, generic, and cheap."

were your teachers just stupid?"
Will laughed. "They were high-minded

Sarojini pointed a forefinger into her open mouth. "The one that does all the
talking. Little Miss Gibber - that's what Vijaya calls her. She's always
talking about all the nasty things I remember, all the huge, wonderful,
impossible things I imagine I can do. She's the one that gets frightened."
"Why is she frightened? "
"I suppose it's because she gets
talking about all the awful things that might happen to her. Talking out loud
or talking to herself. But there's another one who doesn't get frightened."
"Which one is that?"
"The one that doesn't talk - just looks
and listens and feels what's going on inside. And sometimes," Mary Sarojini
added, "sometimes she suddenly sees how beautiful everything is. No, that's
wrong. She sees it all the time, but I don't -
not unless she makes me notice it. That's when it suddenly happens. Beautiful,

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
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
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.
