Metahistory is a path beyond the received scripts of history and culture,
toward a world free from enslavement to historical lies and unexamined beliefs.
Humanity is a species endangered by its beliefs, and
most of all,
its religious illusion of superiority. To go beyond history
is not solely a human prerogative, for the path ahead
is not ours alone, but the way of all sentient beings.
Closely aligned with deep ecology, and going deeper,
this site develops open source spirituality that can reflect the innate sanity of humankind. It explores the question of what is a true planetary view, a way to live bonded intimately to the earth and coevolving with the non-human world.
Toward that end, it invites a future myth, a story to guide the species and align one person at a time to Gaia, the living planet....
Knowledge of that which is alive can alone banish terror.
Wilhelm Reich, The Function of the Orgasm
Metahistory.org is a teaching site
with two aims: examine belief-systems and invite participation
in a story to guide the species.

This essay (originally written in July 2011) describes the background of my discovery of the Terma of Gaia Awakening, sets outs its unique features, and presents nine standards or criteria for establishing the authenticity of wisdom treasures in Gaian Tantra.
The Discovery of a Lifetime
The Way Beyond Belief
One aim of Metahistory.org is to encourage and support belief-change.
Socrates said, "The unexamined life is not worth living." Rephrased in metahistorical terms, "The unexamined
belief is not worth holding."
Orientation to Metahistory
Easy enough to say, perhaps, but how many of the beliefs
that you hold have you really examined?
Are the beliefs you hold innate to you, based on your own experience and judgment, or acquired from others without choice or examination on your part? You have the right to believe whatever you like, but is what you believe truly right for you, or is it someone else's idea of what you ought to believe?
Belief, by definition, depends on suspension of critical judgement.
The power of beliefs inheres mainly in the fact that they cannot
be judged, rationally refuted, or critically disproven—or proven.
They are "unfalsifiable," to use Carl Popper's term. Beliefs
