by his friend Dr Humphry Osmond. He becomes absolutely convinced that a part of
our consciousness exists outside of time. Christopher Mayhew was tested by Dr
Osmond throughout the experiment and showed no significant loss of
intelligence. Christopher Paget Mayhew received a life peerage and was raised
to the House of Lords as Baron Mayhew.
"After brooding about it for
several months, I still think my first, astonishing conviction was right - that
on many occasions that afternoon I existed outside time. I don't mean this
metaphorically, but literally. I mean that the essential part of me (the part
that thinks to itself, "This is me") has an existence, quite conscious of
itself, in a timeless order of reality outside the world as we know it. Though
perfectly rational and wide awake I was not experiencing events in the normal
sequence of time." - Christopher Paget Mayhew

whether I would return to earth.

was a Buddhist temple, a Hindu column, a Moroccan ceiling, gold spires being
formed and re-formed as if I were watching the hand of a designer at work.
I was designing red spirals which unfurled until they formed a rose
window mandala with edges of radium.
An undulating line emitted music
in perfect accord with the design.
The designs were preparatory
sketches for entire Oriental cities.
I saw the temples of Java,
Kashmir, Nepal, Ceylon, Burma, Cambodia, in all the colors of precious stones
illumined from within.
Then the outer forms of the temples dissolved to
reveal the inner chapels and shrines.
The reds and golds inside the
temples created an intricate musical orchestration of Balinese music.
Two sensations, at once, began to torment me: one that it was happening
too quickly and that I would not be able to remember it, another that I would
not be able to tell what I saw, it was too elusive and too overwhelming.
The temples grew taller, the music wilder, it became a tidal wave of

Suddenly I was weeping,
I could feel the tears and I saw the handkerchief in my hand.
Weeping to the point of dissolution.
Why should I be weeping?
As soon as the concept of

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

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

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

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.
