Jack London, Medusa-truth and Maya-lie

My Studies in the Novel course is overlapping a bit with this course, and I am currently writing a Paper on Jack London's philosophies and their prevalence in  his novel "Martin Eden". I stumbled across this article and I am using it as the basis of my paper. However, and I hope I'm not jumping ahead of the course, I think this article has some interesting remarks on the a perspective of God/man's reason for life.

It speaks about the medusa truth and maya lie and I was interested to see if any of you recognize this and if so if you could enlighten me more on it's origin. If not, well here is the article and perhaps we will discuss it later either here or in class.
