Hippocratic Oath



I swear by Apollo, Aesculapius the Physician, Hygieia and Panacea with all the gods and goddesses as my witnesses, that, according to my hughest ability and best judgement, I will keep this contractual Oath:

to hold him who taught me this art equally dear to me as my parents, to be a partner in life with him, and to serve him as son serves father;

to look upon his offspring as equals to my own siblings, and to teach them this art, if they shall wish to learn it, without fee;

that by every mode of instruction I will impart a knowledge of this art to my own sons and to students having sworn this Oath to the law of medicine.

I will use dietary regimens which will benefit my patients according to my greatest ability and judgement, and I will do no harm or injustice to them.

I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.

In purity and according to divine law will I carry out my life and my art.

I will not use the knife, even upon those suffering from stones.

I practice my art for the benefit of the sick, avoiding any voluntary act of impropriety or corruption, including the seduction of women or men.

Whatever I see or hear in the lives of my patients, whether in connection with my practice or not I will keep secret considering them as private.

As I maintain this Oath faithfully practicing of my art may it be granted to me to partake of life fully by gaining the respect of all men for all time.

Should I transgress this Oath and violate it, may the opposite be my fate.


~ The Healing of the Celts ~ Unlike the Greek and Roman ways of dealing with the sick or feeble (usually killing the person because such illnesses were said to caused by Demons), Irish Law stipulated that the best possible care was to be provided to the sick, injured, feeble or elderly. Physicians were held accountable for their actions. One triad from Bretha Nemed toisech states that physicians must provide "a painless examination, a complete cure and no blemish". No scarring, no pain and a complete cure? Pretty hefty standards that most doctors today would be in trouble for! Naturally, this is impossible, but this triad was one that Irish physicians strove for (but was not necessarily the law). The Greeks strove to "do no harm"…the Irish went all the way to "leave no scar"! A physician who caused a patient's illness or injury to get worse through negligence or lack of skill was held accountable by laws very similar to our own malpractice laws. A negligent or unskilled physician who caused harm would be required to pay hefty fines based on the nature of the damage. Soap was invented by the Celts and hand washing/cleanliness were a must in Celtic hospitals and healing places. Something we would not see again until the 19th and 20th century. Sabbaticals were allowed and each locality was required to make allowances for the local physician to take time off to learn new skills without the bother of having to deal with patients during that time. They wanted their physicians to be adequately trained in the most ideal of conditions, it would seem. This is not unlike a specialist today who takes a year sabbatical to upgrade his/her skills. Physicians also had to take up to four students, who would follow the senior physician around and learn on the job, much like the gaggle of residents one can often see accompanying senior physicians at teaching hospitals today. The students gained the on the job wisdom, while the physician and the patients had the security of having four other people scrutinizing his or her work to ensure harm was not being done. Healing baths and spas were also said to have been used by Celtic physicians. Steam baths or sweat houses were used to help with diseases such as Rheumatism and arthritis. There are also tales told of Druids using sweathouses to receive visions. Most likely, these were mostly used for treating rheumatoid disorders. Dian Cecht was considered the Physician of the Tuatha De Dannann . Dian Cecht taught there were 13 doors to the soul in the human body. From a spiritual standpoint, these could be seen as areas that could give a spiritual healer access to damaged or injured parts of the soul. They could also be exit points for the soul at the time of death … or even entry points at the tim

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




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality 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 system of philosophy 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 economic 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.
