"I believe that Eskimos do not have a
satisfactory word for art because they have never felt
the need for such a term. Like most other hunting societies, they have thought
of the whole act of living in harmony with
nature as their art."
"The new conception of self, personal and collective, that will
be born from the collapse of the present one will therefore bring with it a
very different kind of technology, economy, medicine, and
way of life, that seeks to create
beauty and that models itself on processes of nature.
It is not so much a "return to nature" as a returning of nature to us, a
recovering of nature, a reconnection to nature. Of course, nature has never
left us; everything we are is in some sense natural. It is only because we have
convinced ourselves otherwise that life has drifted so far out of balance.
Another way to view the shift of consciousness
is that we will fall back in compassion with nature." -

"It is indeed the favourite maxim of a popular
exception philosophy, that "there is no
rule without an exception," - a maxim about
as respectable as the proverbs along with which it commonly passes current.
Applied to conventional usages - to the tenets of state policy - to social
regulations - to the precepts of pocket prudence - to the laws of grammar, of art, of
etiquette - or to those common aphorisms which roughly classify the experiences
of every day life, it may be true enough; but if
affirmed of the essential principles of things, of
society, of man, it is utterly false.
Nature's rules, on the contrary, have no
exceptions. The apparent ones are only
apparent; not real. They are indications either that we have not found the true
law, or that we have got an imperfect expression of it. Thus, if terrestrial

towards the centre of the Earth," you may triumphantly add"all free

religious systems it was thought that entities, typically
conceptualized as gods, controlled the various
aspects of nature/reality. Originally the
forces of nature were seen as
separate entities which gave rise to a
pantheon of gods.
religions the unseen forces believed to
be controlling different aspects of nature or reality were naturally seen as
separate spirits each having different attributes in the
power of control over nature/reality - much as an individual life spirit inhabits
every unique organic being or animal.
The Greeks devised a way of looking at the
forces of human nature (human emotions and desires - Eros, ) in combination with the
forces of natural reality (thunder,
lightning, wind, sea,
storm, etcetera) and these
forces came to be known as gods in Hellenism.
Concepts of unseen
forces, deities or
spirits have always represented the
forces that enlightened minds know, understand and see as aspects of one unified

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

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,

behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on

rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media

the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do
