"A human society would never willingly harm nature.

This is a way of saying violence is not a part of human nature.

Human beings, quite capable of violence, are not destined to it.

The Barbaric Heart is a primitive ethic.

Assuming violence is our nature is nihilistic.

Actually, the truth is even more disturbing.

The problem is not with our nature; it is with our spirit.

Tolstoy defined religious spirit as the "principle by which a people live." - Curtis White

"Nature in its infinite complexity is ever growing.

Each successive result becomes the parent of an additional influence, destined in some degree to modify all future results.

No fresh thread enters into the texture of that endless web, woven in "the roaring loom of time" but what more or less alters the pattern.

It has been so from the very beginning.

As we turn over the leaves of the Earth's primeval history - as we interpret the hieroglyphics we find this same ever beginning, never ceasing change.

We see it in the organic and inorganic - in recombinations of matter constantly varying forms of animal and vegetable life.

Old formations are worn down; new ones are deposited.

Forests become bogs become coal basins, igneous rock once sediment.

With an altering atmosphere, and a decreasing temperature, land and sea perpetually bring forth fresh races of insects, plants, and animals.

Strata get contorted; seas fill up; land is alternately upheaved and sunk.

Everything undergoes metamorphsis.

Where once rolled a fathomless ocean, now tower the snow-covered peaks of a wide-spread, richly-clothed country, teeming with existence.

Where a vast continent once stretched, there remain but a few lonely coral islets to mark the graves of submerged mountains.

Thus also is it with systems, as well as with worlds.

Orbits vary in their forms, axes in their inclinations, suns in their brightness.

Fixed only in name, the stars are incessantly changing their relationships to each other.

New ones from time to time suddenly appear, increase and wane; whilst the members of each nebula - suns, planets, and their satellites, sweep for ever onwards into unexplored infinity.


Strange indeed would it be, if, in the midst of this universal mutation, man alone were constant, unchangeable.

But he also obeys the law of indefinite variation.

His circumstances are ever altering; and he is ever adapting himself.

Unnumbered degrees of difference lie between the naked houseless savage and the Newtons of a civilized state.

Superiority of sight enables a Bushman to see further with the naked eye than a European with a telescope.

Every - age, nation, climate - exhibits a modified form of humanity.

In spite of adverse evidence, the prevalent belief is uniform human nature.

It is impossible to use eyes or ears without learning that mankind varies and conceptions of Divinity differ somewhat from ours.

In what regard can it be asserted that human nature is always the same?

Is it in rationality?

Is it in justice?

Is it in honesty?

Is it in want of mercy?

Is it in vindictiveness?

Where now is the sameness?

It is not in actions as we see.

Is it then in manners and opinions?

Certainly not.

Whilst all nominally held the creed professed, Christian Saint names were battle cries; Bishops led on their retainers to fight and slay Saracens.

To translate this religion into peace, philanthropic effort, into missionary enterprise, into advocacy of temperance something changed.

Does agitation for abolition of death punishment indicate a change since the day when Cromwell's body was exhumed and head stuck on Temple Bar?

The days when criminals were drawn and quartered as well as hung ?

When church-doors were covered in the skins of sacrilegious men?

Those who assert fixedness of human nature tacitly disown their belief.

They constantly remark on differences of national character, on peculiarities in human disposition, and on their own refined tastes and superior feelings.

Admissions thus accidentally made quite invalidate their dogma.

To the man of insight, the fact that he himself changes with circumstances, from day to day, from year to year, in sentiments, capacities, and desires, is sufficient to show that humanity is indefinitely variable." - Herbert Spencer





"Dark human shapes could be made out in the distance, flitting indistinctly against the gloomy border of the forest, and near the river two bronze figures leaning on tall spears stood in the sunlight under fantastic head-dresses of spotted skins, warlike and still in statuesque repose.

Along the lighted shore moved a wild and gorgeous apparition of a woman.

She walked with measured steps, draped in striped fringed cloths, treading the earth proudly with a slight jingle and flash of barbarous ornaments.

She carried her head high.

Her hair was done in the shape of a helmet.

She had brass leggings to the knees, brass wire gauntlets to the elbow, a crimson spot on her tawny cheek.

Innumerable necklaces of glass beads hung on her neck, bizarre charms, gifts of witch-men, hung about her, glittering and trembling at every step.

She must have had the value of several elephant tusks upon her.

She was savage and superb, wild-eyed and magnificent; there was something ominous and stately in her deliberate progress.

And in the hush that had fallen suddenly upon the whole sorrowful land, the immense wilderness, the colossal body of the fecund and mysterious life seemed to look at her, pensive, as though it had been looking at the image of its own tenebrous and passionate soul. " - Joseph Conrad




unique library index

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.
