"The history of mankind seems blanketed in a simultaneous state of amnesia and deja vu. The ruins of ancient civilizations whisper a reminder that we have forgotten everything we knew.
A multitude of gods have shown themselves like shadows in the halls of history. We know not yet, except by our own observation and decision, which of them is real. We are betrayed by those who teach us that we must trust the Wizards of the West. While pretentious politicians defend the castles of the Witch, the media monkeys swarm to spin perverted lies to cover up their covert tricks.
The voiceless bones of wonderful wizards have dissolved to mortal dust once more. Their words have vanished in the smoke of sacred libraries, searing our souls with the stupefying stench of wisdom lost forever in their flames. From day to day the timeworn treadmill of survival forces us to worship at the soulless bankers' shrine. Gold is still the god of the great and powerful Oz.
We have crash-landed in a twisted alien landscape of pain and mortality, far away from our home Universe. As a race we have amnesia. We are repeatedly bumped on the head by the recurring cataclysmic upheavals of a planet whirling in space like a farmhouse in a tornado.
The future is an extension of the present. We must live our lives in the present in a manner which will create the greatest good for the greatest number of beings in the future. If we are aware of our own past lives, we must also be aware that we are creating our own future by our present actions. We will inherit our own legacy.
As Professor Marvel points out with simple eloquence, "There are no other wizards..."
We are apparently the only wizards there ever were and the only wizards that ever will be. We are each a part of a time track of the past, present and future of our own creation, individually and collectively.
If we let the Wicked Witches run the culture now, they will be in charge of the place when we come back. Just as we are the descendants of past generations, you and I may very well become, through reincarnation, the children of our children--we are the future generations who will inherit the environmental and cultural conditions of the future which we ourselves are creating today."

Excerpt from THE OZ FACTORS, by Lawrence R. Spencer ---
"9/ DOESN’T ANYBODY BELIEVE ME?
" Doesn't anybody believe me?"--Dorothy
"Of course we believe you, Dorothy..."--Uncle Henry in 'The Wizard of Oz'
Is reality really real?
As Dorothy discovered when she returned back to Kansas, her friends and family did not agree that the Land of Oz was "reality".
Conversely, gaining agreement from one's friends does not guarantee that the information agreed upon is true or workable or survival. Agreement is not necessarily reality. Although Man seems to crave agreement with his fellows, the fact that "everyone agrees that the world is flat" or that "the sun revolves around the Earth", does not make it a reality.
History has shown that agreements among people have very frequently proven to be disastrous.
Example: Adolph Hitler gained the complete, unabated agreement of the majority of the German population before he led them into total self-destruction.
Lots of people agree when fast food franchise advertisements tell them that cheeseburgers, fries and milk shakes are good for them. We were, and still are, told, based on "medical research" that these foods contain nutrients from all the "four basic food groups". This doesn't change the fact that you get fat, develop hardened arteries and die an early death from heart disease or cancer if you keep eating cheeseburgers, fries and shakes.
The unprecedented multi-billion dollar profit margins earned by the beef and dairy industry and sugar growers in cooperation with the fast food restaurant cartels have a heavy influence on "truth in advertising". In addition, the quality of information we receive, as consumers, from the American Medical Association regarding "the science of nutrition" is directly influenced by fast food commercial interests.
Only one generation ago the Japanese people were nearly free of heart disease and cancer. In just 20 short years, since they have openly adopted the Standard American Diet (SAD)--cheeseburgers/French fries/milk shakes and liquid caffeine-filled sugar water called cola--the incidence of heart disease and cancer among the Japanese people has skyrocketed. The Japanese agreement with Western lifestyles is killing them.
Reality is often heavily influenced by the Oz Factor of agreement. Agreements influence our perception of reality. A child's perception of his environment, his religious and political ideas and viewpoints about people are often heavily influenced by agreement with his mother and father.
Be cautious with whom you agree. Carefully examine ideas and information before you agree. Just because the preacher says, "sex is evil" or the President says, "I'm not a crook", does not make it reality.
Be careful about agreeing with Wicked Witches and Wizards who promote unworkable solutions. By your own observation decide what is real in the Physical Universe and in Your Own Universe.
Your reality is based on your agreements."
Definition: Vested Interest --
1/ a survival or non-survival plan or agenda which has been "clothed" to make it seem like something other than what it actually is;
2/ any person, group or entity which prevents or controls communication to serve their own purposes.
Example: Governments control communication between the people of their country. You must get a passport to travel to another country. You must pass through a customs' inspection in order to enter the country. You must pay taxes (money is a form of communication). You must get a license to get married or go into business.
Example: Religions prevent and control communication between people and the gods, saints and spirits. You have to pay the priest money for him to "bless" you or to "absolve" you of "sin" as a supposed representative of the god(s).
Example: A husband usually tries to prevent communication between his wife and other potential lovers.
What would happen if you could safely communicate with everything and everyone?
Political, religious and financial vested interests, typically, DO NOT want people to answer this question. The reason is simple: if you could safely communicate with anyone or anything, they would be out of business!
Such institutions very frequently determine what we are allowed to believe by feeding us their version of "the truth". Our "belief" in their version of "the truth" is usually backed up by the threat of death, imprisonment, excommunication or bankruptcy.
All human beings have flesh bodies. Flesh bodies require food, shelter, clothing and as many other goods and creature comforts as one can buy, borrow or pillage. This seems to be a common denominator of survival. It is also a source of illogical thinking which has tended to clog the water mains of our minds with all manner of unspeakable refuse: namely, our vested interest in survival.
Survival requires stuff, and stuff costs money and money takes work. This often means that we must each pretend to "like" someone or "believe" in something--that we could actually care less about--for the sake of "earning a living"."

Oz Factors are defined as "A COMMON DENOMINATOR OF WESTERN LOGIC WHICH PREVENTS OBSERVATION, UNDERSTANDING, AND THE ATTAINMENT OF A WORKABLE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEMS OF HUMAN ORIGIN AND EXISTENCE."
