storm cloud over dead tree


"Mother Nature long ago provided us with free devices that remove carbon dioxide from our air using natural solar power: trees and forests. One fast-growing tree can sequester many tons of carbon. In addition to curtailing carbon emissions, let's get back to basics. How about planting trees?" - Elan Glasser

2006 July heat wave in America breaks more than 2,300 daily records and sets 50 all-time records for hottest temperature ever recorded.

The slight moderation in temperature is being seen in pine forests of 10 western American states including California, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana and in British Columbia. Lodgepole pines in Idaho and Colorado, ancient white-bark pines of Idaho and Montana, pinon pines in Colorado, firs in Montana and aspen trees throughout the West are dying by the millions. Beetles have ravaged the drought weakened trees. Temperatures below zero for several days on end are required to kill the beetle which has not happened since the 90's.

"Nothing like this has occurred in the last 350 years. Whole landscapes have been affected." - Wayne Shepperd, Forest Service researcher

"The mountainsides are blanketed with dead trees as far as the eye can see." - Erik Olsen 11/19/2008

the words true and tree are joined at the root


In Old English, the words looked and sounded much more alike than they do now: "tree" was trow and "true" was trowe. The first of these comes from the Germanic noun *trewam; the second, from the adjective *treuwaz. Both these Germanic words ultimately go back to an Indo-European root *deru- or *dreu-, appearing in derivatives referring to wood and, by extension, firmness.

Truth may be thought of as something firm; so as well can certain bonds between humans, like trust, another derivative of the same root.

A slightly different form of the root, *dru-, appears in the word druid, a type of ancient Celtic priest; his name is etymologically *dru-wid-, or "strong seer."

I saw in Louisiana a live oak growing,

All alone stood it and the moss hung down from the branches,

Without any companion it grew there uttering joyous of dark green,

And its look, rude, unbending, lusty, made me think of myself,

But I wonder'd how it could utter joyous leaves standing alone there without its friend near,

for I knew I could not,

And I broke off a twig with a certain number of leaves upon it and twined around it a little moss,

And brought it away, and I have placed it in sight in my room,

It is not needed to remind me as of my own dear friends,

(For I believe lately I think of little else than of them,)

Yet it remains to me a curious token, it makes me think of manly compassion;

For all that, and though the live oak glistens there in Louisiana solitary in a wide flat space,

Uttering joyous leaves all its life without a friend a lover near,

I know very well I could not.

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.
