Failure as a Way of Life


Do not be discouraged by 'failure'.

Discouragement is a trick of the Ego.

Ego searches for perfection that does not exist.

Leave perfection to God.




"The visceral experience of failure has been edited out

of the career trajectories of the rationally dissociated.

Those who end up making big decisions affecting all of us

don't seem to have much sense of their own fallibility."

Matthew B. Crawford


Failure can knock self-worth surprisingly early


Fail is defined as:

judged unacceptable

fall short of expectations

perform ineffectively or inadequately

decline in strength resulting from excessive strain

disappoint, prove undependable, abandon or forsake



The ultimate taboo - failure!


Hero worship is embedded early.

Americans still revere the images of the lone cowboy, riding off into the sunset in search of his destiny.



wrong

contrary to conscience

an unjust or injurious act

contrary to ethics or morality

violation of the rights of another

not in conformity with actual truth

not functioning properly; out of order

contrary to the principles of justice or law

erroneous condition; 'immoral' or 'improper'

invasion or a violation of another's natural rights

an incomplete perspective made for dog and pony shows


"Wanting experience, the whole universe, is but one vast scene of error.

Return to Nature, consult her laws, call practical knowledge to aid.

For want of practical knowledge men form imperfect ideas of the combinations of matter and the energies from which it springs.

Ignorant of Nature, he has mistaken her laws; he has not contemplated the necessary routine marked out." - Paul-Henri Thiry, Baron d'Holbach



use the stepping stones of error

fault

a defect; a blemish

a character weakness

to find error or defect in; criticize or blame

anything that fails, is found wanting, impairs excellence



paint yourself into a corner

incorrect

defective; faulty

improper; inappropriate

not in conformity with actual truth


Error has adaptive value. This may not be immediately apparent.

To err there must first be an attempt. Nothing attempted = no error.

Suppose we dislike having blood drained by a mosquito.

We attempt to find a solution to the problem of the mosquito draining blood.

Unknown to Othmar Zeidler he solved this problem when synthesizing DDT.

Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane kills the mosquito - dead.

The application of the scientific method and cost-benifit accounting suggests we kill all the mosquitoes so we embark open a Global Malaria Eradication Program which the World Health Organization did in 1955.

The application of the scientific method and cost-benifit accounting breaks reality into unreleated segments and variables are invariably overlooked.

DDT still damaging ecosystems 50 years after being sprayed

Errors in human judgement may take 50 years to appear in ecosystems.

as they open new and unexpected fields for inquiry
."

Alfred Korzybski




"Truth is not only violated by falsehood;

it may be equally outraged by silence."

Henri Frederic Amiel


"A fox running away in terror was asked what had caused the terror.

The fox stated, 'The authorities are taking guerilla for forced labor.'

In reply he was told, 'You are not a guerilla and do not even look like one!'

The fox answered, 'If a false witness were to state that I was a guerilla,
who would work for my release?' - Saadi of Shiraz


"The power to respond to reason and truth exists in all of us.

Unfortunately so does the tendency to respond to falsehood - particularly in cases where falsehood evokes some enjoyable emotion." - Aldous Huxley

Neural Responses Reveal Our Optimistic Bent

"Optimism is cowardice." - Oswald Spengler

On the far-away island of Sala-ma-Sond, Yertle the Turtle was king of the pond.

A nice little pond. It was clean. It was neat. The water was warm. There was plenty to eat.

The turtles had everything turtles might need. They were all happy. Quite happy indeed.

Now Yertle, the Turtle King, lifted his hand and Yertle, the Turtle King, gave a command.

He ordered nine turtles to swim to his stone and, using these turtles, he built a new throne.

What a wonderful view! He could see 'most a mile!

"Hooray!" shouted Yertle. "I'm the king of the trees! I'm king of the birds!

I'm king of the bees! I'm king of the butterflies! King of the air! What a wonderful chair!

I'm Yertle the Turtle! Oh, marvelous me! For I am the ruler of all that I see!"

Came a groan from that plain little turtle named Mack.

That plain little turtle whose name was just Mack, that plain little lad got a bit mad.

And that plain little Mack did a plain little bad.

He burped! And his burp shook the throne of the king!

Yertle the Turtle, the king of the trees, king of the air, birds, bees and mule.

Well, that was the end of the Turtle King's rule!

Yertle, King of all Sala-ma-Sond, fell off his high throne and fell Plunk! in the pond!



80 percent of humans are delusionally optimistic


"After being taught from childhood that America is above reproach in all ways, many Americans find it impossible to believe that our government can be corrupted, our elections can be stolen, our culture can be corrosive.

The most frightening aspect: American people don't want to know.

Nonconforming narratives are labeled mean-spirited or even treasonous.

The media is owned; we're being victimized.

We're left to figure it out as tragedies strike: a son lost in Iraq, a home destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, a health insurance policy canceled.

Eventually we'll see, but by then the America we believe in may be lost." - Catherine A. McCallum





Conceptual images of reality vary.

Familiar within a given community,

worldviews vary across tribal,

religious, cultural and sociological barriers.



Individuals may perceive inexperienced modes of behavior as alien.

The evolution of the individual personality will be affected by behavioral traits of individuals with whom the original personality spends time.

Behaviors will be appropriated in both directions, like a viral infection, due to mirror neurons and the behavioral reality of subconscious human mimicry.

It is during periods of close personal interaction between individuals fallacies are spread person to person within the bounds of the given social group.

Fallacies continue to spread even after individuals realize they are fallacies.

Sociologists call the process of spreading fallacies a micro-macro disconnect.

The individual hears a fallacy, and testing the waters, spreads the fallacy for feedback purposes.

Unfortunately at the macro level within the echo chamber of the entire social culture the fallacy continues to reverberate and spread - crushing the truth.

A spreading fallacy is a lot like an epidemic disease.

Computer models of a disease can be adapted, with remarkably few modifications, to study the paradox of persistent fallacies.

Persistent fallacies always give way to the cold hard truth of reality.

Eventually persistent fallacies achieve an equilibrium.

After a mountain of fallacies has been built up - one on top of the other - social cohesion begins to collapse as persistent fallacies are mutable.

Fallacy subscribers belong within the range of a well-defined group.

As individuals gain more experience, they cease to believe the fallacy but are replaced, through societal shifts, by a new crop of fallacy spreaders.

Fallacies spread among the unsuspecting originate at the apex of the pyramid.

In order to have a clear understanding of reality outside personal experience it is necessary to have access to unbiased and accurate information.

There is only one source of completely unbiased and accurate information.

When we have been given false information we will hold a false image of that part of reality which resides outside of personal experience.

It is the false that creates nearly all suffering, false desires and fears, false values and ideas, false relationships between people.

Disaster capitalists through the denizens of think tanks are constantly spewing fallacies to distract and confuse while undermine confidence.

Vested interests would like us to accept the marketing spiel of wetiko which disables intellectual functions with a viral disease based in fallacy.

This viral fallacy inundates us with a ponerologic vision that physically shifts our consciousness into a false reality making Americans ignorargant.

Abandon the false, free yourself: truth creates happiness as truth liberates from the subconscious bonds while an delivering anaphylactic shock.

To be free we must collectively gaze beyond the Veil of Cognitive Blindness.

Everything Is a Lie

"An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way

by gradually winning over and converting its opponents:

What happens is that the opponents gradually die out."

Max Planck




"A partial truth is plausible, there is evidence of support.

And hence, it is easy to assume that it is the total truth.

Partial truth are more insidious than total falsehoods."

Samuel Phillips Huntington

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new philosophical ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a mystery school aptly named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully.
