THE MESSAGE OF THE DIVINE ILIADWalter RussellVolume 1UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND PHILOSOPHYFormerly the Walter Russell FoundationSwannanoa, Waynesboro, Virginia 22980 
To man’s new day, now dawning, when he who alone knows the anguishof the dark shall find peace through knowing the Light of God in him, asvery Self of him, this book is lovingly dedicated.FOREWORD
THE MESSAGE OF THE DIVINE ILIAD is sent from our Father togive unfolding humanity the needed comprehension for taking the nexttransforming step in man’s long journey from the jungle of sensedawareness of body to cosmic conscious awareness of omnipresent Lightof God as the centering motivating force of man.For millions of years, man was unaware of his conscious Self. He wasbut body, expressing the desires of body, constantly seeking that whichhis body needed, and taking it by his might of physical strength. Duringthose aeons of his unfolding, man was totally unaware of his unity withGod and mankind. Likewise, he was totally unaware of the universalinexorable law which governed his every action.Then came the dawn of consciousness. Man began to know. Then hecreated extensions of his body to do for him what his body could not do.He created a boat to transport his body—then a sail for the boat—thena wheel—and fire to warm him and cook the food which he formerly ateraw during the animal stage of his unfolding.Then came the long savage and barbarian stages of increasinglycomplex human relations based upon the jungle principle of taking thatwhich he wanted by the power of might-over-right. During thousands of years tribes warred upon other tribes, building themselves into nations,

and then empires, to gain possession of the wealth and services of othertribes and nations by acquiring their lands and people for ownershipand exploitation.Our own United States were thus acquired. We killed withoutcompunction to obtain what we wanted. We stole hundreds of thousands of Negroes and made slaves of them. England, France, TheNetherlands, Russia and other nations multiplied their empires by thesword of the mighty slaying the weak.Industrial empires came into being as our supposedly highly civilizedand enlightened society of humans increased its knowledge and practiceof the arts and sciences. Advancement in our cultures and standard of living continued to deceive us as to our status as civilized beings. Wefailed to realize that we were illegitimately still practicing the law of the jungle---which takes only what it needs for survival----while man took thousands of times more than he needed for material gain. The junglekills one at a time for food, but man kills by millions for enslavementand exploitation.Such practices are a normal part of our present standard of civilization.It is difficult to realize that we are still barbarians. A civilization whichkills and exploits others for mere gain can hardly call itself civilized.Humans can never justly call themselves civilized until they practice thelove principle which God practices in all of His Creation.Mankind has reached that stage of his unfolding where he must eitherlearn the facts of inexorable universal law and practice them, or perishby his own hand. He will die by the sword he slays with unless his entirehuman relations are reversed from the taking principle to Nature’sprinciple of balanced giving for regiving.Man’s scientific skills have made it possible for him to slay his entirerace. A continuation of the old barbarian practice of taking, which hasbred his many wars of hatred and aggression, will inevitably lead to awar of extinction unless
 Nature’s love principle of giving 
replaces it.Today the world is divided. Disunity marks all human relations—fromindustry to religion—from capital to labor. Two opposing worldideologies—democracy and communism—stand like insurmountable

precipices to debar world unity. Freedom itself is not two centuries old.Slavery was existent in our own country within the memory of livingmen. Through ignorance and superstition, America’s colonialintellectuals burned old women at the stake as witches. Mighty empiresare still attempting to build themselves into greater empires by thesword.
 Man is at the crossroads of his unfolding.
The old way of life which builthis empires of hate and fear must be abandoned. This coming age mustbe built upon God’s one law of balanced interchange in all humanrelations. There is no other alternative. To continue the old way meansthe destruction of civilization by multiplied hate. To follow the new pathwill mean the multiplication of love which alone will bring peace,happiness and prosperity to man.Man’s comprehension has been limited to the range of his senses. Manis now unfolding beyond the range of material sensing in the direction of 
cosmic knowing.
Science is doing this for him. Science is slowly, butsurely, verifying the personal God of man’s demanding and identifyingthe invisible, spiritual Personal Being of man with the invisible, spiritualPersonal Being of God.Science is thus replacing man’s abstract god of faith and belief with adynamic God of law and order whom man KN OWS. The abstract godof faith and belief is the direct cause of man’s many religions, forabstractions have bred many concepts of God, where knowledge canconceive but the ONE. Faith and belief are the shield of ignorance.THE MESSAGE OF THE DIVINE ILIAD is to build a scientificcomprehension of the nature of God---and man’s unity with God—inorder that mankind may unfold in the direction of its ultimate goal of cosmic awareness of the Light rather than refold by descending into theterrors of another deep and long dark age.Through love alone can man find the kingdom of heaven for which hehas sought since his beginnings? Only through living love as a principlecan he find the happiness, peace and prosperity which lie in his heart asthe greatest of his desires.
