"We live in a cooperative biological
world which possess many features of life, most notably homeostatic regulation
of temperature, gases, salinity, and other variables. Each species contributes
some way to the metabolism and homeostasis of the planet. Coral creates lagoons that help
remove salt from the ocean, which would
otherwise double in salinity in just 60 million years. Photosynthesizing algae
and rainforests produce the oxygen that
sustains animal life, while other mechanisms prevent oxygen levels from going
too high and sparking devastating planet-wide forest fires. Bacteria accelerate
rock weathering to bring carbon out of the atmosphere, while marine animals
eventually turn that carbon into shells ultimately sequestered on the ocean
floor. And something, some combination of organic and inorganic processes, has
kept earth's surface temperature stable as the
sun's apparent brightness has increased by 30 or 40 percent over three
billion years." - Charles Eisenstein
"From the moon, the Earth is
so small and so fragile, and such a precious little spot in that
beautiful, that you can block it out with your thumb.
Then you realize that on that spot, that little blue and white thing, is
everything that means anything to you - all of history and music and poetry and
art and death and birth and compassion,
tears, joy, games, all of it right
there on that little spot that you can cover with your thumb. And you realize
from that perspective that you've changed forever, that there is something new
there, that the relationship is no longer what it was." - Rusty Schweickart
"When I was the last man to walk on the moon in December 1972, I stood

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
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.
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.
