Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! (Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!)

My wife is right, I am anal retentive...., so now I keep a can of WD-40 next to the toilet! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

Saturday Morning Confusion: "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!"

To whom it may concern:

Image result for godEver since I started doing the research for my book: "An Exploration of Religion and the Meaning of Life!" I have been heavily immersed in the nature of God, the nature of Nature, the nature of Humans, and the nature of Consciousness, because they are all intertwined and when taken as a whole produce what we see as reality!

Yup, there's layer after layer of stuff in the movie and we're never sure which is the truth and which isn't!

(Mainstream Religion!)

(When in actual fact he's just some old carnival huckster with a hot air balloon!)

AND FINALLY: We have the slippers to take us back home! (Even if home is only in black and white!)
