Island of Utopia
"The last century, encompassing two world wars,
genocide after genocide, and the accelerating deterioration of the
living planet, has finally rendered utterly transparent the illusion that
control over Nature - and its apotheosis in the Machine - could ever fulfill
its Utopian promise." -
Island of Utopia is very similar to a Japanese or British Isle.
Each city on Utopia is made of close familial
relations, in great obedience to their common parent, whose sons all remain at
home to serve him.
The population of each city is
strictly maintained - each city with supporting agriculture will have no more
than 6,000 families.

The oldest man of every family on Utopia, as

Every city on Utopia is divided into four equal parts, and in the
middle of each there is a marketplace.
All production is arrayed at the

There are several religions on Utopia even in every village
with some worshiping the sun, others the moon or one of the planets.
Some worship such men as have been eminent in
former times for virtue or glory, not only as ordinary deities, but as the
The greater and wiser sort of them worship none of
these, but adore one eternal, invisible, infinite, and incomprehensible Deity.
They call the Father of All, and acknowledge that the beginnings, the
increase, the progress, the vicissitudes, and the end of all things come only
from Him; nor do they offer divine honors to any but to Him alone.
And indeed, although Utopians differ concerning other
things, yet all agree in this, that they think there is one Supreme Being that
made and governs the Earth, whom they call in the language of their country
More's Utopia, penned in 1515, is a communist tyranny.
"Behold, to the
Lord thy God belong the heavens and the heavens of the heavens."
Lakish said, they are seven, viz.: Vilon, Rakia, Shchakim, Zbul, Maon, Makhon,
Vilon serves no purpose whatever save this, that it enters in
the morning, and goes forth in the evening, and renews every day the work of
Rakia is that in which are set sun and moon, stars and
Shchakim is that in which the millstones stand and
grind manna for the righteous.
Zbul is that in which is the heavenly
Jerusalem and the Temple, and the altar is built there, and Michael the great
prince stands and offers upon it an offering.
Maon is that in which are
companies of ministering angels, who utter His song in the night and are silent
in the day for the sake of the glory of Israel.
Makhon is that in which
are the treasures of hail, and the high dwelling-place of harmful dews and the
high dwelling-place of the round drops, and the chamber of
the whirlwind and of the storm, and the
retreat of noisome vapor; and their doors are made of fire.

and the treasures of peace and the treasures of blessing, and the souls of the
righteous and the spirits and souls which are about to be created, and the dew

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
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 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.
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.
