Do you ever wonder about the "logic" of homo sapiens? Do we really understand what motivates the "thinking" of the "average" human life form creeping around on the Earth killing and eating everything they can catch or shoot? Did you know that during the entire history of human beings on planet Earth there have been only 12 DAYS during which a war was NOT being fought somewhere on the planet! (this is probably due to incompetent record keeping, or illiteracy, or both).
Did you know that more than 2/3rds of the taxes collected from American residents --- just like you and me --- is spent to fund MILITARY activities? Most of this money is spent by "contractors" who build weapons and other gadgets that are used for murder, mayhem, pain, destruction, mutilation and to create social, economic and environmental chaos. But, what is the REAL "logic" for this perpetual slaughter?
The FACT is that every single war in human history (without ANY exceptions) was FUNDED BY PRIVATE BANKERS FOR PERSONAL FINANCIAL GAIN. Do your TAXES pay for waging war? NO. It is "money" that is created by and loaned by private banks at interest to BOTH combatants. When all the dead bodies have been cleared from the fields, the "spoils" or "profits" are collected by the Private Bankers. Don't take my word for it, folks. Do your own research. The Private Bankers are PARASITES that are fed on the blood and flesh of the dead human bodies that litter the perpetual war zone called EARTH.
Do you have a "healthy" lust and zeal for killing your fellow human beings, and other creatures? Why not take some of the guns from you personal arsenal and go hunting for private bankers? This will solve TWO problems at once: 1) satisfy your "normal" human desire to kill something, and 2) rid the Earth of parasites!
What could be more "logical" ?
"The river of human history is clogged and fouled with the putrid refuse of unworkable solutions to the mysteries and problems of life: war, ruined civilizations, insanity, mental anguish, drugs, despair, murder, disease, criminality and starvation. We are the victims of our individual and collective inability to find workable solutions to these unwanted conditions. Our sciences, religion, government and education systems, which should be held responsible, have failed to resolve these basic questions of our existence. As proof, our humanity has long since been exceeded by our ability to destroy life with nuclear and other weapons.
Meanwhile, each of us, knowingly or unknowingly, search for a spiritual way home; a way home to the resolution of the primordial mysteries of our existence: Who are we? Where did we come from? What is our purpose? Each step along the road in our search is heavily influenced by the directions we have been given by those who have traveled before us. Our ancestors, friends, teachers, leaders, scientists, philosophers, writers and artists of the past and present serve as guides in our journey. They help to shape our ability to make our own decisions as to which is the wisest route to travel, or whether to travel at all. Yet, our trip on the road to personal truth may be slowed or quickened, straightened or perverted, by those we have considered to be our friends. Have we been led astray?
Our thoughts and conjectures about life and universes are often based on assumptions, unproved theories, hearsay, rumors and misinformation. The actions we take in life may be based on ancient attitudes and archaic practices which are impractical or no longer applicable. Our view of the physical universe and of our own spiritual universes are spawned and nourished by a panoply of educational and environments influences. Lies replace the truth when a vested interest is being served.
Our decision making processes, the road we choose to follow, is a sort of "logic". The solutions we use to resolve the problems and mysteries of our lives will be workable or unworkable, depending on the workability of our "logic".
Yet, in the end, the decisions we make, individually and collectively, will influence the road taken by future Man. Our own lives, the duration or extinction of the human race and all life forms on Earth depend on the decisions we make today.
In the midst of this constant decision making process, modern Western civilization is confronted with an unprecedented, uncontrolled explosion of technological innovation, unseen in recorded history. "Reality" is regulated by vested interests who seek personal gain to the detriment of the greater good. Science has become the soulless and impersonal religion of the 21st Century. Our planetary environment is at risk of irreversible damage, bordering on the annihilation of every living creature. Psychiatric drugs and an unseen one-world government are invading our lives like the flying monkeys in the Land of Oz. Encounters of a Third Kind have replaced the gods of mythology with a more tangible awareness that we may not be alone in this universe. New Age archaeology is rediscovering our past and redefining the paradigms of our history with shock waves of revelations that the Theory of Evolution is archaic and unworkable.
"The Oz Factors" analyzes the subject of Western Logic: How was it created? What are its parts? How does it work or fail to work? How does it effect our lives?
Each of twelve Oz Factors are defined as "A COMMON DENOMINATOR OF WESTERN LOGIC WHICH PREVENTS OBSERVATION, UNDERSTANDING, AND THE ATTAINMENT OF A WORKABLE SOLUTION" to problems of human origin and existence. How these factors influence our history, science, philosophy, our lives and our future is clearly demonstrated, offering a wide variety of new theories as possible alternative routes to the traditional directions we have followed in the past.
The story of "The Wizard of Oz" is used as an analogy through which the reader can more easily understand unfamiliar subjects, in much the same way that Chemistry, for example, can be more easily understood when compared to the familiar subject of cooking; i.e. mixing chemicals in a laboratory is similar to mixing ingredients in a kitchen. The material covered in this book provides examples of incidents which shape our viewpoint of the physical universe and which impinge upon our own personal universes.
“The Oz Factors” offers a simple, yet comprehensive method through which anyone can discover for themselves workable solutions to problems which are considered to be "mysteries" in Western science and philosophy. Discover what is true for you, without religious or academic dogma. Join me in our mutual search for solutions to the primordial questions of existence. May you find a simple and useful road map in "The Oz Factors".
