Robin George Collingwood
As science reveals
causal chains that remain largely invisible to standard cognition it has become
more and more apparent that our lives are ruled largely in way that our
decisions have very little effect on.
Once we understand
the thought patterns that inform
consciousness we begin to see that we have less control over our own lives
than we thought.
This realization terrorizes the psyche and we tend to
hide that realization behind a
Veil of Cognitive
Understanding that so many of our reactions are simply
scripts that we play and replay frightens us to the core of being and makes us
feel controlled from without like a
puppet on a string manipulated by the puppet master.
As we continue to make unscripted irrational decisions
we question whether we actually have free will or have been
conscripted to fate ?
If we actually do have free
will why is it that we feel driven by a puppet master?
Just as we

We need to go even deeper into
the realm of the subconscious !
Assume cognition is just a bundle of nerves with electrical impulses
streaming along them. How does this bundle
of nerves make a choice?
In computational science, at this time, we
have bytes - streams of zeros and ones - that act as a code that tells a gate
to be either open or closed, on or off.
Computers run lines of software
code which are termed 'scripts' in computer science.
When they run
those scripts they open and close gates that correlate the input information
into a designed format that is readable - and actionable. But the scripts don't
make decisions !
They were already previously coded.
If we lived by fate alone then we would never
be able to modify the input script !
travel through life every day we run scripts
but no script can be run in its entirety without modification as environmental
conditions cannot be the same.
The script must remain flexible enough
to take advantage of changing environmental conditions - like the sun going
down at night, a winter storm approaching on a cold front or
standing around a camp fire on open
ground with variable wind direction.

The spin of an electron has two
possible configurations, up or down.
If we align those configurations
we have an electron flow or an electric current.
Nerves function as
conductors of electrical currents. When we make a decision we modify the flow
of the electric current.
Before a choice has been made the particle
that carries the data informed by choice remains in a indeterminate

The only way we can do this is by reaching into the void and
pulling out the quantum superposition that keeps our feet firmly planted on the
path of The Way !
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 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 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.
