At time 10.00, after "leverage" Gatto begins speaking about Joe's Law, not exactly according to my formula, but the concept is communicated.

At about 12:30 Yes!!!
The boot of the master has been lifted off and the people are recklessly inventive!!!

I also thought of Joes law and wrote down 28 but for the life of me I cannot find which video it was so I probably wrote down the wrong time. It was the opposite of Joes Law where the Criminals figure out how to limit production.

What a great experience it must have been to have Mr. Gatto as a teacher! …As he taught one to teach oneself and opened the lid off of the flea container so all the students go off in their natural directions.

"I’m not hung up on this, I am just messing around. But I think I have a point if perception exists."

And if you have a point, then it is conceivable, at least to me, that you could point it out to me. Right now, as far as I can see, there is no point, so you could, conceivably, show me that point, and then I can see something where nothing is perceived by me at the moment. Lies do not produce anything, so far as I can see, so far.
You can prove me wrong, please.
So far I still see nothing, destruction is not production.
--------------------------------
What I am asking is: if perception exists, then does anything and everything exist within one’s perception? i.e. whether existence is true regardless of whether the perceived thing is true or not.

Pick something ridiculous. One can breathe water. I can perceive that, so it exists in my perception. But the truth is that if I breathe water I will drown, but that possibility is not within my false perception, so drowning is not a reality to me.

"And of course you know, each day it is closer!"
I'm not as sure as you are as to what exactly each is closer to.

I was speaking of the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ. There will be signs of the times.

“Matthew 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately *, saying , Tell us, when shall these things be ? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying , I am Christ; and shall deceive many.6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled : for all these things must come to pass , but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.” In context: http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/matthew/24-audio.html

“I like the part in the link on John Taylor Gatto where a quote is offered from Martin Luther
"Every man his own priest."

That is called the priesthood of the believer and here are verses that support that:

1 Peter 2:9 KJV
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

That means that Believers are the priesthood. There is no priest for us.

Hebrews 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need

We come boldly because of Jesus. We come in his righteousness. God cannot embrace sin. He is holy. Jesus did not sin. We can be in Christ and come to God directly.

• 1 Timothy 2:5 KJV
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Do you see that? We need no man because Jesus is that mediator. We come directly to God thru Jesus Christ. Every man, his own priest. When I confess, I confess directly to God. I do not confess to a person to get forgiveness from God. There is no earthly person that stands between me and God.

So how is it that one gets to come to God thru Jesus?

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved .

Simply by believing. What? : That Jesus is Lord and that God raised him from the dead.

“I can't comment on what happens after life,”

This is what the Bible says happens after death:

• Hebrews 9:27 KJV
And as it is appointed unto men once to die , but after this the judgment:

For a Believer this is what happens:

• 2 Corinthians 5:8 KJV
We are confident , I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

One who is in Christ is present with the Lord when their body dies.
