The Power of I AM


It is not enough to have a good mind.

The main thing is to use it well.

If you would be a real seeker after truth,

it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt,

as far as possible, all things.

Descartes



"The rational, analytical, objective worldview implicit in the discrete Cartesian self, separate and distinct from all other selves and their environment, is a necessary and proper phase of human development.

This sets the stage for a further phase, one that we no longer experience.

We remain therefore stuck in a perpetual adolescence, waiting our whole lives for some momentous happening that never happens.

That our development remains arrested in the analytic ego phase is necessary for the continuation of society as we know it, for the perpetuation of the World Under Control." - Charles Eisenstein




What is a Sovereign Being?

End Sovereign Immunity Once and for All



The term autonomy comes from the Greek words "autos" (self) and "nomos" (rule or law) and, when applied to persons, refers to their decisions and actions being their own.

As Gerald Dworkin observed in The Theory and Practice of Autonomy, autonomy is a moral, political and social ideal and endowments of intelligence and talent are morally arbitrary

Dworkin theorizes liberty is only liberty to do what we wish as long as we do not infringe upon the rights of others, a nearly impossible task.





"Dworkin uses the classic story of Odysseus - tied to the ship mast to resist the sirens call - to explain second-order reflection conception of autonomy.

Autonomy means that we can have a preference about our preferences.

It is possible for autonomy to be maintained in the face of interference that infringes on the voluntary character of one's actions, even under coercion.

As Dworkin writes, "Not every interference with the voluntary character of indivual action interferes with a person's ability to choose his mode of life."

Some loss of liberty is consistent with Dworkin's conception of autonomy.

Consider, for example, life-saving medical treatment rendered without patient consent in emergency situations (Dworkin 1988: 116)." - 'Hidden Persuaders': Defaults and Consumer Welfare, N. Craig Smith and Daniel G. Goldstein, London Business School Centre for Marketing, Working Paper No. 07-105, March 2007

N. Craig Smith and Daniel G. Goldstein have turned Dworkin upside down.

They have used Dworkin to justify unwanted medical intervention.

Building a Mystery

Going easy on yourself may improve health


"Peaceful societies devalue competition, self-focus, and other ȩḡȫ-centered social behaviors." - Bruce D. Bonta


"According to Freudian psychology, the ȩḡȫ is that part of us that allows us to correctly perceive external reality and function well in everyday life.

People frequently visualize the concept ȩḡȫ death as a frightening and tremendously negative event - as the loss of ability to operate in the world.

What really dies in this process is culturally conditioned desires and needs.

What truly happens is dispersion of ego structures detrimental to survival.

Alan Watts called this aspect, which involves a sense of absolute separateness from everything else, "skin-encapsulated ȩḡȫ." - Stanislav Grof


"Your ȩḡȫ is a set of patterns of thought that define your universe.

A familiar room built of thoughts; you see the universe through its windows.

To the extent that you are afraid to venture outside, it has become a prison.

Your ȩḡȫ has you conned into believing you need specific thoughts to survive.

The ȩḡȫ controls you through your fear of loss of your imagined identity.

To give up these thoughts, it seems, would annihilate you." - Ram Dass



kill your ego, save yourself

make ignorance history know yourself

"The shift in consciousness that comes about from the death of the ego alone
is capable of revealing the ultimate horizon of the Real." - Shunyamurti



Ego is:

The conscious thought stream that identifies itself as "I".

The cyclic dissociative rational thought patterns used to objectify reality.

A comprehensive set of thought patterns used to interface with reality.

Enduring thought patterns whelming up from the subconscious.

The voice that continually interjecting conscious vocal judgements.

Freudian Psychoanalysis: the part of the psychic apparatus that experiences and reacts to the outside world and thus mediates between the primitive drives of the id and the demands of the physical and social environment.


"Mystics show us we are trapped in a delusion about who we are.

This delusion brings about suffering, and eventually a crisis that can only be resolved through a surrender to a state of being beyond prior self-limitation.

You are not a "flesh-encapsulated ego".

Happiness pursuing an egoic agenda is beyond reach." - Charles Eisenstein


ḜǦƠ is necessary for survival without which there is no will to live.

ḜǦƠ does not have to descend to the level of Reptilian thought patterns.

ḜǦƠ may, mistakenly, build mental constructs contrary to survival.

ḜǦƠ will then create imaginative conceptual justifications.

ḜǦƠ may have enough self-knowledge to be self-conscious and self-aware.

A Power Pyramid controlled by Reptilians exists at the Axis Mundi.

Ignorarrogant Reptilians fight to attain the apex of the Power Pyramid.

Fighting for the apex of the Power Pyramid is a favorite game of Reptilians.

Monopoly, a highbred version of King of the Hill, involves land rent.

Reptilian psychological engineers, forged in the image of George Creel, manufactured subsuming needs and foist them on an unwary population.

Ego consciousness or self-consciousness is knowing that most human understanding of reality is limited to firsthand experiences.

All that you believe you are is your self-conceptualization of your self.

Ego is conditioned by socially ingrained information in the subconscious.

To activate the process of psychic expansion requires the dispersion of socially programmed materialistic ego structures and belief systems.

Ego death or dispersion of ego structures creates a state of egolessness.

Dispersion of ego structures is necessary to free oneself from the bonds of acculturation - ie. conditioning through propaganda, branding, adverts.

Self-centeredness is an archaic trait, rooted in territorial animal impulses and ignorance of reality beyond the tribal area of experience.

It is natural to relate to reality through expanding circles of interlocked relationships - self, mate, family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, community, state, world - with individual ego dwelling at the center of it all.

Even today many people think of their ethnic group as more unique, more special than others, or their nation as superior in historical cultural richness, or their brand of religion as the only religion worth considering.

It is true that reality seems to expand outward from individual conscious, but it is an illusion to see that point of reference as the center of the universe.





Psychological projection is a defense mechanism in which the human ego defends itself against subconscious impulses by denying the existence of such impulses in itself while attributing them to others.

A habitually person rude individual constantly accuses others of being rude.

This incorporates blame shifting and requires the belief of being Chosen.

Psychological projection stems from the self-blindness of consciousness.

Many people are unaware of their own negative traits, as global consumers they are subconsciously skilled in psychological euphemism.

Misers see themselves as stringently thrifty.

Jealous people see themselves as being justifiably protective.

Vain people look in the mirror and see self-esteem and self-assurance.

Lust and sexual exploitation are uninhibited sexual adventures.

A selfish person thinks in terms of realistically taking care of number one.

Sanctimonious religious people of every sect, blind to their own hypocrisy, see themselves as holier than the "sinners" around them.

Businessmen see themselves as elite power holders with no need to pay heed to the negative consequences befalling fellow humans due to their actions.

Politicians blind to their own shadows project their repressed flaws and deceits onto targets they themsleves indentify with their graffiti.

To withdraw projection is to acknowledge that many attributes projected outward onto the writhing masses belong to oneself.

381 AD In the New Testament, Jesus warns against projection:

"Why do you look at the stainless steel needle in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plate armor in your own eye?

How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the needle out of your eye,' when all the time there is a steel wall in your own eye?

You hypocrite, first take the molten steel out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the stainless steel needle from your brother's eye."

500 Babylonian Talmud notes the human tendency toward projection:

"Do not taunt your neighbor with the blemish you yourself have."

Psychological projection is seen in personalities functioning at a primitive level - narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder.

Psychological projection may consume normal people in a political crisis.

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 mass 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.
