Artist's note: In the search for the truth we all come up against the formal religions of our country.
Exoteric religion is usually narrow as it relies for strength on external laws. All bigotry stems from this
source and most religions are couched in fear. Unconscious man requires feeding and does not want to think
for himself because he is incapable of making decisions. No matter whether it is the Bible or the Koran, the
mass of adherents take their teaching literally and this leads to all forms of intolerance and misery –
their teacher is the only one who is right and anyone not believing in him goes to damnation, whereas if you
are one of the believers you go to paradise.
