to earth and to all of creation." - Vincent Cole
"I call it quantum consciousness: the
consciousness we access when we use the potential of our quantum-computer
brains. The brain is a macroscopic quantum system, yet we use it as if it were
exclusively a classical biochemical system. With its quantum-system functions,
our brain can receive information not only from our eyes and ears, but directly
from the wider world with which we are entanglednonlocally
connected. Insightful people throughout history, whether shamans or scientists,
poets or prophets, have extensively used this capacity, innate to all human
beings. Today it is widely neglected. This impoverishes our world picture, and
causes a nagging sense that we
are separate from the world around us." - Ervin Laszlo

The death of those
ideas begins with concrete changes in the

measure and enumerate. More and more frequently, these changes will clash with
our perceptions until our sense of nature as eternal and separate is

environments, with their traffic and harried pace, are a constant drain on our

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
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 of America 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.
