"That the connected series of things might intellectually remain in the Light of the Father; that the elements of the World might continue their course in mutual attraction."

The Chaldæan Oracles of Zoroaster, translated by W. Wynn Westcott

"Everything is dependent on everything else,
everything is connected,
nothing is separate."
Georges Ivanovitch Gurdjieff

"We are all part of the ONE - one world of diversity but incredible interconnected. It is just plain irrevocable truth that an injury to one injures all; that a threat to justice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. This is now understood by psychology, quantum physics, evolutionary biology, planetary theology, etc., and simply confirms the "golden rule" of doing unto others as you would have them do to you, a principle adhered to by every world religion in their own respective languages with a similar grasp of this basic truth." - S Brian Wilson

"Can anything really be understood in isolation from the rest of the universe? We explore reality by dis-organizing it: isolating pieces, eliminating variables, shielding outside influences. Thus the entomologist brings dead "specimens" back to the lab; the geologist brings back rock samples; the physiologist dissects cadavers and the chemist seeks purified substance purged of the chaotic contamination of the world.

Such methods are incapable of apprehending anything that exists only in relationship, anything that, when you disassemble the whole and isolate the parts, is no longer there. What are those things that exist only in relationship, that are properties of wholes and not of parts?

A few examples: consciousness, spirit, sacredness, life, beauty, selfhood, divinity, compassion, truth, emotion, purpose, transcendence, will; in short, all that makes us human." - Charles Eisenstein

"If you really want to evaluate a teacher you have to walk into a classroom, sit down and listen.

I'm convinced that when you're listening to good teaching, you hear a familiar refrain.

It goes like this: What is the connection between ... and ... ?

So much of good teaching is about taking strands of information and looking for connections and broadening the context.

Endless test preparation has the opposite effect.

Endless test preparation shrinks the context.

Endless test preparation reduces inquiry.

Endless test preparation mitigates against Socratic dialogue and can drain much of the passion from teaching and learning.

The irony is that young students begin by making connections.

The challenge for teachers is to build on that foundation, to encourage students to seek connections between, say, fractions and percentages, or between lobbying and legislation, or between Copernicus and Darwin, or between the main characters in two different novels.

I like to ask my students why the food in India, Africa and Mexico is so much spicier than the food in Ireland, Iceland and Finland. Typically, lots of theories are advanced and eventually (and perhaps with some guidance) students use their knowledge of geography, chemistry, botany and Federal Reserve Board to make the connection that will lead to an explanation.

We teachers call this "thinking across the curriculum." Once students start seeing how and why seemingly disparate topics are related, and more important, once they start looking for and making those connections, then the teacher will have performed that special kind of classroom alchemy - turning passive receivers of knowledge into active participants in the learning process.

The answer to the spice question: First, spices grow in equatorial regions; and second in hotter climates, food rots more quickly, so spices are needed to preserve the food and, later, to mask the rancid smell." - Jeff Lantos

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 economic 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 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 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.

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.
