Dreams are a review of everything experienced.
If you overlook a natural pattern consciously then your dreams
reveal that natural pattern if it is important for your survival.

Creative problem-solving that entails dreams typically begins with a
period of unsuccessful effort. That's followed by a
decision to set the problem aside,
then a lull in which the thinker does no conscious work to find a solution.
Finally, the fresh solution enters consciousness in a dream and is recognized
The process works especially well for musicians,
scientists and artists whose challenges are analogous to the neocortex's. That
is, to make new connections among bits and pieces of familiar

General observation shows that dreams are strongly associated
with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, during which an electroencephalogram shows
brain activity to be most like wakefulness.
Lucid dreaming is being in
a dream state of consciousness, rapid eye
movement sleep, and knowing that you are indeed in a dream state of
consciousness. The dreamer awakens within his
dream to the reality that what he is experiencing is
occurring not in physical reality, but in a dream.
This is conscious awareness of the
subconscious cataloging process that occurs
Lucidity is often triggered by an occurrence in a dream
that subconscious rejects as not belonging
within the subconscious'
conceptual schemata of reality. Two common
occurrences in a dream that the subconscious
seems to reject are flying and
meeting the deceased. Both seem to propel the level of
consciousness from rapid eye movement sleep
Lucid dreams are
dreams of ascension of
consciousness where one experiences happiness and contentment whereas
nightmares, dreams of a
consciousness, are laced with fear and terror..
dreams - I know it! - we do make the
journeys we seem to make: we do see the
things we seem to see; the people, the homes, the
cats, the dogs, the
birds, the whales, are real, not chimeras; they are
not shadows; and they are
They go whither they will; they visit all resorts, all points of interest, even
the twinkling suns that wander in the void
of space. That is where those
strange mountains are which slide from
under our feet while we walk, and where those vast caverns are whose bewildering avenues close behind us
and in front when we are lost, and shut us in. We know this because there are no such things here, and
they must be there, because there is no other place." -

world. Now they promise to protect us from
nightmares." - BBC television special

Those who claim to
know nothing about ultimate
reality are called agnostic (literally, "not
knowing"), the person who does claim to
know such things is called
gnostic ("knowing"). In Gnosticism the broad term 'gnostic' is defined as 'knower' which refers to all individuals who have
insight into ultimate
reality and although they

gnostics all say exactly the same
thing. It is rather that their teachings are like fingers pointing

Unfortunately, most people focus on the finger

death frees him
from this fantasy." - Rumi (Sufi Gnostic)

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
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
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.
