Come on Folks! Think, think, think!
Where does all the power of human thought and action originate? Where is the control center of all human action?
From God? From the Holy Ghost? From Christ?
No, it originates in the human mind, which has been well described as having three main parts that are responsible for all human action (which includes thinking): the Superego, the Ego, and the Id.
Our brain acts the same way, regardless in what level of conscious reality we find ourselves … ALWAYS, the exact same way.
In his endowment presentation, Joseph Smith assigned each of these three parts to three characters as an allegory about our human nature while going through mortality:
So, what assignment did he make to the same three parts that are responsible for all advanced human action (which includes thinking)?
Think about it!
I’ve been giving you clues all along. And yes, when you consider everything that I have ever said about Jehovah (Christ, the Overseer, Jesus) you will come to find out that I meant every word … allegorically.
What part of our brain oversees and basically controls all of our thoughts and actions?
Consider what Freud wrote about the ego:
Freud made the analogy of the id being a horse while the ego is the rider. The ego is,
“like a man on horseback, who has to hold in check the superior strength of the horse.” (Freud, 1923, p.15)
Now consider how it was given in the analogy of the incredible book of Revelation:
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. … And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.” (Revelation 19:11, 21)
“Heaven” is an allegoric place in our brain, the capacity of which can create two different states for the person: heaven or hell.
I’ve now explained that the “second coming of Christ” is actually going to occur for the entire population of the world in their own minds, EXACTLY how it occurred in mine on June 16, 1987. Immediately after my mind was affected by the change, I knew what heaven and hell were, and who the real and only God was who was sitting upon a throne in heaven. It was me.
One day, everyone else will know, too.
Until that day, all they have, all they will ever be given, is what I have been given; that if accepted by them, will heal the world. All that I have been given will be properly published in the book, The Game of Mortal Life.
For your preview and to excite you for the upcoming book, here is the proposed Foreword and part of the beginning of the Introduction.
Enjoy … and please, please, please,
Let me do my job.
And to those of you who make it possible so that I can do my job, my (our) deepest thanks and appreciation.

This book was envisioned and developed by an anonymous group of experts, each contributing their individual and unique advice and ideas to its formation. Together, this group brings to the table hundreds of years of accumulated personal experience, study, observation, and knowledge. The group’s desire to retain its anonymity speaks for their deep respect for each other; and their acknowledgement that the extent of the book’s information could not be provided by any one person’s vision and experience. To reinforce their pure intentions and the virtuous purpose for which each has donated their time and talents to this work, the book will be offered to the world free of charge.
The book’s purpose is to present a profound and unprecedented view of human existence—one which has never been fully considered and explored. The group has unanimously concluded that the current views and opinions held by the world about human life is the greatest cause of despair, unrest, depression, division, and unhappiness. Their united and qualified opinion propositions that unless a major change occurs in the way that human life is valued and viewed upon earth, the demise of the human race is inevitable, or at the very least, the ability to achieve happiness and peace unlikely. This book intends to present an explanation and understanding of ourselves that can only lead to a greater cohesiveness and solidarity among us. By understanding each other better and concentrating on the things that we have in common more than the things that divide us, it is the group’s hope that unified, humans can fix the problems that they have created. Our greatest commonality is the fact that we are all mortal and share the same finite environment provided by the same laws of the natural earth.
The scope of the subject matter deals with an age-old viewpoint about our existence that has never been explored nor considered beyond its rejection as just a theory based on philosophical nonsense. Yet, these viewpoints have been held by some of the world’s greatest thinkers. The things revealed in this book have been proposed before but rejected by the masses led by ministers of education, science, and religion, who would lose their worldly value if these proposals turned out to be the real truth. Because the intent and agenda of these ministers is to retain their value and power, the masses have never had the opportunity to consider these proposals. The area of concentration of this book presents these proposals clearly, simply, and in their purest form.
There are few limitations to the profound information presented in this book. Its contributors cover a wide variety of questions that mortals have considered since the beginning of time, or rather, from the recorded history of the known world. Understanding the answers is limited only to our imagination, which gives a human being—unique in the natural world—the aptitude and ability to form new ideas and concepts that are not currently present to our senses.
It has been said that imagination is more important than knowledge; in that, knowledge is limited to what we know, and imagination unlimited in what we have yet to discover. It has also been proposed that anything that we can imagine, if not real in our present experience, must be real in some other experience.
In our current experience, our advancements in technology have outpaced our ability to incorporate them properly for the benefit and betterment of the world. For the few so privileged with the means to live without struggle, we have developed highly technologically advanced games in which one seeks distraction from the mundane and monotonous schedule of daily life. Can we imagine what these games are going to be like in one-hundred years? In a thousand years? If we can imagine a world where we have eliminated human struggle, and where every person has their basic life necessities provided for without the harsh physical requirements often associated with force (i.e., slavery); where our technology has evolved and has eliminated disease and aging … what, then, would be the means of distraction that we would ensue in the pursuit of happiness? The intelligent, anonymous group of contributors to this book maintain, in unanimity, that these future pursuits in an advanced world of peace and plenty is …
… The Game of Mortal Life.
The individual search for happiness provides the core emotional fuel that powers the course of human events during mortality. Happiness is the desired end of every action. Happiness is also that which we expect when we allow someone or something else to act upon us. Sadness, the opposite of happiness, is the result of not being able to act as we want to, or not having our expectations fulfilled when we allow someone to act upon us. Sadness is also the result when we are forced to act or an action is forced upon us that we did not choose for ourselves.
Self-worth is the result of a happy person who acts and is acted upon as that person chooses without an outside force manipulating the act. If something outside of the individual is responsible for the act, then the person cannot take credit for it. Therefore, the act does not add to the person’s self-worth, but adds to the worth of the responsible outside force. When an outside influence is responsible for the act, self-worth, therefore happiness, is affected negatively.
Although all life forms upon Earth are acted upon and act within the same natural laws, only the human life form seeks for happiness as the result of self-worth. The ways that a human expresses happiness is much different than all other life forms. The physical expression of a smile and a sense of humor are uniquely human.
As a whole, the world is not a happy place. This is the result of the inability of the human species to find the happiness that it naturally seeks. This inability to find happiness is the direct result of low self-esteem. Low self-worth is the direct result of the inability to act as one wants to act, and more so, of one being acted upon forcefully. For example, if one wants to stay at home and compose music all day long—because this is what makes one happy—but is forced to work in order to survive, that person cannot do what they want and is forced to do something that they don’t want. The inability to do what they want lowers their self-worth.
In the pursuit and protection of self-worth, humans end each other’s existence. They kill each other, and justify the action as good, when ending another’s existence enhances the possibility of increasing their own self-worth, therefore their own happiness. No other life form kills its own like the human race. Consider when a war ensues and one side wins a battle. The winners are happy and express this happiness with smiles and shouts of joy in their victory. Their individual self-worth is enhanced because they won. There is no thought given to the losers, who are sad and distraught and sacrificed self-worth in the loss.
In our individual pursuits of happiness, we cause each other unhappiness. Yet, we all want peace. We claim that peace will make us happy. We feel sad when we are fighting a war, until we are crowned the winner, then we feel happy until someone or something else threatens our happiness by intimidating our self-worth.
Self-worth is the main component of the happiness that fuels our actions. Nothing contributes more to the components of this fuel than religion. Religious belief is a symptom of our pursuit of self-wroth. Our history has shown us that nothing has caused us, and continually causes us, more heartache and pain than religion. Religion has triggered innumerable and incomprehensible wars that have resulted in the loss of an immeasurable amount of human life. Religion causes intimate personal depression that results in emotional guilt, misery, and uncertainty about one’s self-worth and value. As ironic as it seems, that which we value and depend upon the most to bring us happiness, has created the most sadness.
Countless books and studies have been written about religion and its effect on human society throughout the course of mortal life upon Earth. But in spite of the empirical and clear evidence of religion’s negative affect on the human race, nothing is more powerful and more widely employed in the search for happiness than the role that religion plays. Religion has centralized itself in, and has become the most effective and powerful motivational energy of the human mind. Yet, when we dare broach the possibility that religion is the cause of most of our sadness, we are threatening the happiness of those who gain their self-worth from religion. Those who have dared, are usually killed and their murder justified as good, because, as mentioned above, “ending another’s existence enhances the possibility of increasing their own self-worth, therefore their own happiness.”
When we consider the evolution of the human mindset and its progress towards peace and equality, we must be honest and determine what helped us progress. For example, what created the inequality experienced by women, by dark-skinned people, by homosexuals? The answer is unequivocally: religion. Did the gods, the Messiahs, the holy spirits of religion do anything to equalize life for these mentioned groups? Or were the attempts to equalize their rights caused by those who rejected religious teachings for more humane principles? Consider, also, the great advancements we have made in technology and science, which have brought us more happiness by making life much easier and safer. Was religion responsible for any of these? Stem cell research is a modern example of scientific observation that has led to solving many of the physical aberrations that threaten our happiness. Yet, various religious groups vehemently fight the research. Did a god cause the physical disabilities in the first place? If so, then mere mortals should not intervene in fighting the “will of God”—according to the argument of the theists. Ironically, when religious people are hurt, sick, or in any other way physically affected negatively, they usually seek out science to relieve them of the pain that their God willed upon them, or failed to heal.
Could it be that religion is the cause of all of our problems and impedes our progress towards peace and a greater experience of happiness? Nonetheless, as mentioned above, “… nothing is more powerful and more widely employed in the search for happiness than the role that religion plays. Religion has centralized itself in, and has become the most effective and powerful motivational energy of the human mind.” This being as it is, any effort we make to counter the effects of religion will ultimately end in strong resistance from those who have gained their self-worth from it. The result of this resistance is counterproductive to the desired end for the effort.
We cannot fight something that we do not understand. The only way to defeat an enemy is to understand that enemy and how it thinks, how it acts, and how it responds to an attack. To understand religion, we must first understand the human mind that gives it its power. To understand the mind, we must first understand self-worth, and why it is so important to a person. If we cannot provide a better answer and solution to increasing self-worth than religion, we cannot defeat it. Religion basis its understanding of what motivates a person to think in an outside force it calls, God, through a Holy Spirit. God and the Holy Spirit have replaced self-worth, because it is believed that a person is incapable of self-worth unless it is received from something outside of the self. (Doesn’t make sense, but is the basic religious attitude.)
Religion bases its efforts to establish peace and happiness on a Messiah, or a representative of God with the power to solve our problems. Thus convinced, the religious do not believe that they have the power to solve their own problems, even though they are the ones who created the problems in the first place. However, they do not believe that they caused the problems associated with the absence of happiness. They have transferred this responsibility on another force outside of themselves that they call the devil, Satan, Lucifer, or other names associated with evil and misery—the opposition of good and happiness.
In essence, humans have the propensity and ability to transfer responsibility for their actions—good or bad—to someone or something outside of themselves. Upon transferring the responsibility, they also transfer the power to correct their own actions. For example, if they have invented a god that gives a commandment that a woman is not equal to a man—because that is the way that God created them and meant them to be—even though they feel sad because women are treated badly, they can alienate themselves away from the guilt and the responsibility to do something about it by simply proclaiming that it is “God’s will,” not their will, but God’s.
It is a contradiction of epic proportion, and the direct cause of most human misery, to depend upon an outside force for the self-worth to solve the problems that the same outside force created or allowed in the first place. If God created us and allows the problems that are associated with our unhappiness, how can we fight God and do everything in our power to counter the effects of His will?
There will be no peace on Earth, and our ability to experience happiness as a cause of the lack of individual self-worth will be forever impeded, unless we can defeat the idea and concepts associated with religion, its gods, its Messiahs, its prophets, and its holy inferences. But since God is such an important part of the human psyche, and the main source of hope for a better world and more happiness, we cannot get rid of the religious mindset that has created God. We must replace God with something better, or at least, something just has powerful and motivating—something that will increase happiness for the individual exponentially to that person’s increase in self-worth.
