myth : consciousness
Paleolithic consciousness or hunter-gatherer forager consciousness
is characterized by a non-dualistic acceptance of That Which Is

Nature rather than to follow Her and conform to Her rhythms.
compulsion to gather food for a "rainy day" was initiated by a
left brain thought of
future need that originated in a remembrance of past times of scarcity.
The moment the desire to control
nature began is the moment God kicked Adam and Eve out of the Garden.
Pagan shamanistic nomadic type religions relate directly to the
right brain while
settlement based agricultural based cultures relate directly to the left brain.
Our emotions originate in the
right brain which is
directly sensing the energies of Reality around it.
The natural self,
the right brain,
enjoys change and relishes the novel. The natural self glories in a life that
is an ever-unfolding adventure into the Divine.
Once the split from
Nature occurred the individual no longer felt, as the early forager did, those
body energies that we call core emotions -
recognition of actual
reality. Unfortunately those repressed core emotions did not go away even
though the individual was no longer conscious of them after the
left brain had taken

erected to filter out those core emotions the

unaware of the secret agreement entered into by the two hemispheres of their
brains "act out" in a ritual manner those inner
core emotions/feelings/realities/experiences which the conscious
left brain is cut off
As long as the secret agreement stands they will deny this as
they are numb to it and unaware of it. The manner of the "act out" is always
symbolic of the (truly) motivating inner core
emotions/feeling/reality/experience that has been repressed. The
actual reality the
experiences makes itself known, not consciously but indirectly and
symbolically. This symbolism will be based on
connections the right
brain uses to understand reality.

This would not have been an issue without the global industrial
revolution which hid future decline behind glossy marketing.
It is a part of the
Cartesian mode to think of
consciousness as being something
peculiar to the mind, that the

to a certain set of purposes.There is a

There is a
wonderful story of the
deity, of the self that thought,
"I am". As soon
as it thought "I
am"," it was afraid. It was an entity now, a
self, locked in time. Then It thought,
"What should I be afraid of,
"I am" the only
thing that is."
As soon as It thought
"I am" alone
It imagined that if there were another
It would not be
lonesome, and so
It felt desire.
It swelled, split in two, became
male and female,
and begot the universe.
Stanislav Grof found some
patients re-experienced birth and, in the re-experience of
birth, the first stage is that of the
fetus in the womb,
without any sense of "I" or
At childbirth there are two participants
. The trauma of childbirth is imprinted on the both the mother's and the
child's psyche . The trauma they both experienced of being joined, then
seperated, will be reenacted over and over again when they come into
conflicting contact over worldview, as we inevitably do
Fear is the first emotional experience of
the fetus in the womb.
Shortly before birth the rhythm of the uterus begins, and
there's terror! (The walls are closing in!)
Fear is the first emotion, the emotion that says "I".
Then comes the horrific stage of
getting born, the difficult passage through the birth canal, and then - my
God, bright light, loud sounds and other
Can you imagine!
Isn't it amazing that this repeats
just what the myth says - that self said,
"I am", and
immediately felt fear?
It was alone, Self felt desire for companionship and became two.
Self breaks into the world of light
and pairs of opposites.
There is the plane of
consciousness where one identifies and communes with that which transcends
pairs of opposites.
The nature of our experience of reality is I
and you, this and that, true and untrue, male and
female, good and evil, black and
white - every one
of them has its opposite. This is
duality - a simple method to
differentiate reality by putting reality into a linear box with end points. An
example of this seen today is paralleled in "Republican" or "Democratic" or
Left against Right.
When we are turned outward, we seem to see
imperfections in reality.
If we look
inward, we see that our inability to accept reality as reality truly is - is
the source of our attitude that reality is
Once we look inward at our own
our self - we begin to understand our
inner reality and we can then judge if that
inner reality reflects outer
existent reality - the field of existence.

it, you will suddenly see that all the religious mystical experiences are the

-adapted from Joseph
Grof treated psychological problems with
lysergic acid diethylamide
several years while it was still legal.
"LSD and other
function more or less as nonspecific catalysts and amplifiers of the
psyche. In the dosages used in human experimentation, the classical
such as LSD,
mescaline, do not have any specific
pharmacological effects. They increase the
niveau in the psyche and the body which leads to manifestation of otherwise
latent psychological processes. The content and nature of the experiences that
these substances induce are thus not artificial products of their
pharmacological interaction with the brain ("toxic psychoses"), but authentic
expressions of the psyche revealing its functioning on levels not ordinarily
available for observation and study. A person who has taken
LSD does not have an "LSD experience," but takes a journey
into deep recesses of his or her own psyche." - Stanislav Grof
potential of LSD seems to be
extraordinary and unique. The ability of
LSD to deepen, intensify and
accelerate the psychotherapeutic process is incomparably greater than that of
any other drug used as an adjunct to psychotherapy, with the exception perhaps
of some other members of the
group." - Stanislav Grof
LSD was first suggested as a tool in
psychotherapy in 1949. The following year saw the first studies in
medical/psychiatric journals. By 1970, hundreds of articles on the uses of
LSD in therapy had appeared in
the Journal of the American Medical Association, the Journal of
Psychology, the Archives of General Psychiatry, the Quarterly
Journal of Studies of Alcoholism, many non-English-language journals, and
elsewhere. Psychiatric and psychotherapeutic conferences had segments devoted
to LSD, and two professional
organizations were formed for this specialty, one in Europe and the other in
North America. International symposia were held in Princeton, London,
Amsterdam, and other locations. From 1950 to 1965,
LSD was given in conjunction with
therapy to an estimated 40,000 people worldwide.
"LSD has a high-risk/high-reward
ratio. Lysergic acid diethylamide requires a time commitment - an
LSD trip can last as long as 20
hours. Early rituals suggested a deliberate, even thoughtful approach to drug
taking. Although he got a little lax about it as time went on, Timothy Leary's
ideas about "set and setting," which emphasized the importance of the
psychological state of the user as well as the environment in which the drug
would be used, recognize that the way to avoid a bad hallucinogenic experience
has a lot to do with how well you know
yourself and how willing you are to remove yourself from bad-vibe people
and excessive external stimuli, like televisions or ringing phones.
we're looking for a yardstick to measure how people's feelings
about consciousness have changed over 40
years, we could do worse than to consider the enormous philosophical gulf
between LSD and, say,
Prozac®. Whereas one expands
consciousness, the other belongs to a
class of drugs whose phenomenal success rests largely on their ability
to keep the mind from
expanding into uncomfortable places (ie facing reality squarely).
one reduces a person's 'functionality' in the interest of questioning reality,
the other is about becoming 'more
functional' while questioning very little." - Meghan
"Over his long
life, Albert Hofmann (the first chemist to synthesize lysergic acid
diethylamide) took LSD many
times. Albert Hofmann developed a personal mysticism
involving nature, for which he had a lifelong passion. One thing this very
tolerant man decried in the Western drive for
facile satisfaction was an
alienation from nature. The use of
LSD made him more and more
conscious of it. In nature Albert
Hofmann saw "a miraculous, powerful, unfathomable
reality." - Robert Stone
A massive dose of
lysergic acid diethylamide increases sense
experience to the point where it will cause the subject's
consciousness, "little voice",
to experience a "white out" which leads to a vacant memory of the experience in
the left brain. The
amount of disruption of left brain thinking is
directly proportional to the dose - the higher the dose, the more disruption.
The best way to describe to a left brain what it is like in the
right brain visual
would be the
paintings of Alex Grey. But that is only visual and a poor description as
the colors are heard and not seen, they taste weird, smell funny, and keep
slapping, pinching, caressing and sticking you with more and more sensory

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
condemning 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.
