"It is possible that
Mount Olympus may have supplied
the poets with the hint for saying that Jupiter obtained
the kingdom of heaven, because
Olympus is the common name both of the mountain and of heaven." -
"It is amazing how the characteristics of the gods
of the Greek pantheon so closely resemble
the ambitions of technological
utopia: they possessed immortality, eternal youth, and
flawless physical beauty; they could travel
at incredible speeds and fly through the air; and they possessed lordship over
the processes of nature. Today we aspire
through our technology to the status of gods." - Charles Eisenstein
nineteenth century, the century of reason, was devoid of myths, and only the
"poets" (falsifiers!) regretted this. Then along came
the psychology of
the subconscious, then sociology and
history, to give a fresh meaning, and thereby vigor, to these dusty
tales incorporated in Greco-Latin
mythology. No longer were they a childish
invention to lend color to a naive religion. Men perceived instead subtle
expressions of the profound and
complicated tendencies of man, and
the divinities involved in
these myths were no longer the simple gods of thunder and of
time. Analysis of the myths themselves led to a far deeper understanding of
something permanent in man, of
a certain relation with the universe
and a certain structural pattern within his soul."

Zeus urinated on the hide of a bull
and buried it. After nine months, Orion grew up on the spot and was named Orion
by his father. Orion was the son of three gods who represent the elements of

three gods is a "male divine virgin birth". Orion was a handsome giant who
could walk on water as could all of Poseidon's sons.

The Olymipians chained Prometheus to a

the power to be like them, to become, through
the technologies of fire, the "lords and

And thus did humanity receive
Pandora's Box (pithos) - an
unfolding of the technologies of fire which
brought with them the narcotic of technological addiction so desirable but
filled with the strife, disease, and the ruin of the Earth that humanity has
experienced since the first technologic
mastering of the use of fire to modify and control nature.

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."

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.

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
