"He maketh the whole World

of Fire, Air, Water, and Earth,

and of the all-nourishing Ether."

- The Chaldæan Oracles of Zoroaster,

translated by W. Wynn Westcott

"There are four Elements, and original grounds of all corporeal things - Fire, Earth, Water, Air - which all elemented inferior bodies are compounded; not by way of heaping them up together; but by transmutation and union; and when they are destroyed they are resolved into Elements. For there is none of the sensible Elements that is pure, but they are more or less mixed, and apt to be changed one into the other: Even as Earth becoming dirty, and being dissolved, becomes Water, and the same being made thick and hard, becometh Earth again; but being evaporated through heat, passeth into Air, and that being kindled, passeth into Fire; and this being extinguished, returns back again into Air; but being cooled again after its burning, becomes Earth, or Stone, or Sulphur, and this is manifested by Lightning."
- The Philosophy of Natural Magic, Henry Cornelius Agrippa

"In ancient times Astrology was regarded as one of the most sacred of the sciences and was taught only to those Initiates admitted to the Greater Mysteries, for it was considered essential that the astrologer should have such spiritual discernment as would enable him to check any astrological calculations by visualizing the effect of the planetary influences playing at any moment upon the native or person for whom the horoscope was cast. As the ebb and flow of the tides are due to the influence of the moon, so the currents in man's superphysical bodies are subject to planetary influence and their fluctuations are visible to the seer."
- The Comte De Gabalis, Abbé N. de Montfaucon de Villars

"Be praised, my God, through all your creatures, especially through my lord Brother Sun, who brings the day; and you give light through him. And he is beautiful and radiant in all his splendor! Of you, Most High, he bears the likeness.

Be praised, my God, through Sister Moon and the stars; in the heavens you have made them, precious and beautiful.

Be praised, my God, through Brothers Wind and Air, and clouds and storms, and all the weather, through which you give your creatures sustenance.

Be praised, My God, through Sister Water; she is very useful, and humble, and precious, and pure.

Be praised, my God, through Brother Fire, through whom you brighten the night. He is beautiful and cheerful, and powerful and strong.

Be praised, my God, through our sister Mother Earth, who feeds us and rules us, and produces various fruits with colored flowers and herbs.

Be praised, my God, through those who forgive for love of you; through those who endure sickness and trial. Happy be those who endure in peace, for by you, Most High, they will be crowned." - Francis of Assisi

Francis of Assisi spent a lot of time in lonely places,
asking God for enlightenment.

Francis of Assissi

"We all have a mental image of Francis of Assisi in a brown robe
whose shoulders and arms are covered with birds.
Francis of Assisi's pastoral vision is not entirely unprecedented:
for at least the first five centuries of the Church,
the dominant Christian symbol was Christ the Good Shepard
instead of Christ on the Cross."
- Bill McKibben

"Saint Francis of Assisi, a radical advocate of renewal,
had no intention of being original, but merely tried to return
to "following the doctrine" and the footsteps of Jesus."
- Jon Sobrino Jesus the Liberator

Paracelcus viewed the universe as one coherent organism pervaded by a uniting lifegiving spirit.

"All things are poison and nothing is without poison, only the dose permits something not to be poisonous." - Paracelsus

Mark Twain

"Water is an individual, an animal, and is alive, remove the hydrogen and it is an animal and is alive; the remaining oxygen is also an individual, an animal, and is alive.

Recapitulation: the two individuals combined, constitute a third individual - and yet each continues to be an individual - here was mute Nature explaining the sublime mystery of the Trinity so luminously that even the commonest understanding could comprehend it, whereas many a trained master of words had labored to do it with speech and failed."

Mark Twain

"At least 72,000 years ago and perhaps much earlier, modern humans had an understanding of how fire and heat could transform the materials around them to suit their needs." - Kyle Brown

"Modern society is based primarily on the technologies of fire. It is fire that powers our automobiles and airplanes at supra-biological speeds; it is fire that enables us to smelt metal and etch silicon; it is fire that powers our electrical grid and communications system; it is fire that allows us to distill or synthesize chemicals that do not exist in pure form in nature; it is fire that powers the quarrying of limestone and the crushing of rock to build roads and skyscrapers.

The wholesale disruption of nature and reengineering of the physical landscape would be impossible without fire-based technology. From the building of superhighways and dams to the clearcutting of forests, nearly all large-scale domination of nature depends on fire technologies such as the internal combustion engine and the coal - or oil - fired turbine. As soon as fire-based technology gains ascendency, such projects as clearcutting become not just technologically feasible but morally conceivable, as the Epic of Gilgamesh testifies to as far back as the time of ancient Sumer.

Water is the nemesis of control. Seeking out the tiniest crack, nothing can hold it in. As waves in the ocean, it destroys any bulwark. Whereas fire burns clean and purifies what it touches, water makes a mess. Hence the key to preserving anything - houses, books, food, clothes, metal - is to keep it dry.

Water, with its cycles and flows, its unruliness and its ubiquity on earth, could be called the essence of nature. To keep everything dry, and therefore outside the cycle of decay, transformation, and renewal, is a concrete expression of our separation from nature.

Our dependence on water - the fact that we are made mostly of water - denies the primary conceit of civilization, that we are separation from nature or even nature's master. No more nature's master are we, than we are the master of water!" - Charles Eisenstein

gluon = the strong nuclear force

photon = the electromagnetic force

graviton = the force of gravity

"Any structure that we see in the universe results from a balance between opposing forces of Nature. Since four forces exist in Nature with distinct strengths and ranges, there is scope for a variety of quite different equilibria to exist in which matter is held in the grip of two opposing forces. We are fortunate that the number of natural forces is so small: as a result, Nature is reasonably intelligible to us. If there were thousands of basic forces of Nature, rather than just four, then the number of different structures that could result from any two of them coming into balance would be enormously increased, and the search for simple patterns would be far more difficult - perhaps beyond our ability to deal with." - John D. Barrow

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, mass 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 mass 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.

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. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully. Opinion and thoughts have been adapted, edited, corrected, redacted, combined, added to, re-edited and re-corrected as nearly all opinion and thought has been throughout time but has been done so in the spirit of the original writer with the intent of making his or her thoughts and opinions clearer and relevant to the reader in the present time.
