"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." - James Houston
"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." -

The Greeks devised a way of looking at the
forces of human nature (human emotions and desires - Eros, ) in combination with the forces of nature (thunder, lightning, wind, sea,
storm, etcetera) and these forces came to be
known as the gods in Hellenism.
If we visualize nature as our god then
we understand that nature provides the sustenance we need to continue living.
If we visualize our god anthropomorphically then we subconsciously project
human traits onto this image of god and confuse them with our parents.
If we project human traits onto this image of god then we immediately
abandon the truth of the foundational model of nature which does not judge but
only reacts. Then our god becomes a Patriarch or a Matriarch with human

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,

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

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.
