reason thy servant


"Reason is the servant of the passions." - David Hume

"Reason, tread the path of selflessness into eternity."

"All reasoning is conducted within the ambit of some sort of faith, attraction, inclination, orientation, predisposition, or prior commitment."
Terry Eagleton

"William Ellery Channing trusted reason, and exalted it above scriptures and religious teachings. William Ellery Channing said if we couldn't trust reason, then we also couldn't trust the reason of those who try to teach us what is true. William Ellery Channing had faith in our dignity - in our inherent goodness - the heart of the impulse toward honest religion in all times and places. " - Davidson Loehr

"Reason expresses and reinforces our gradual abstraction from nature. Reason is essentially the application of an abstracted relationship onto something new. We observe the relationship between A and B, and say that the relationship between C and D will be like that too. For example: "All humans die; I am a human; therefore I will die." A is to B and C is to D. Or, A:B::C:D. The mathematical connotations of the word "rational", containing as it does the word "ratio", suggest as well that rational thought embodies the rigor and certainty of mathematics. And unlike a mere number, which (originally at least) is associated with concrete objects and therefore, as in science, attached to units, a ratio cancels out units to arrive at a pure abstraction, disconnected from any specific experience. This contributes to our elevation of reason to a supernatural province abstracted from objective reality - abstracted, that is, from nature. As the faculty of reason is unique to human beings, we consider it proof of our ascent above nature. And the more we rely on reason, the farther above nature we ascend; hence the dream of the perfectly rational society as the pinnacle of human development." - Charles Eisenstein

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 central banking 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.
