All of my writing is based on the rational statement of how beliefs work:

Beliefs agnostically self-reinforce instantaneously, creating feelings, thoughts, and actions in that order, which themselves create more self-reinforcing feelings, thoughts, and actions.

That rational statement is supported biologically by research conducted by Dr. Bruce Lipton as expressed in “The Biology of Belief”, and reinforced psychologically and biologically by Bessel van der Kolk’s lifelong practice with PTSD as articulated in “The Body Keeps The Score”.

These three works reciprocate and compliment each other, articulating the intrapersonal work of the soul to push back against the external fear-based institutions that perpetuate their brand of false evidence appearing real.

My work deconstructs the role of religion in general and specifically Evangelicalism to reveal what both books point to: you are more powerful than you have been told.

Beliefs create self-reinforcements ad nauseam to such a scope and degree that no one gives a second thought to the self-inflicted damage we do to ourselves and others. The root of this self-immolation is religion, which itself is based on global catastrophe of which only recently have scientists been able to accurately interpret geological evidence.

What people consider beliefs are nothing more than the illusions that the self-reinforcements create to maintain the illusion of powerlessness and hopelessness.
