"Concepts, in fact, are outside each other, like
objects in space; and they have the same stability as such objects, on which
they have been modeled.
Taken together, they constitute an "intelligible world"
that resembles the world of solids in its essential characters, but whose
elements are diaphanous, easier for
the intellect to deal
with than concrete images.
They are not, indeed,
the perception itself of
things, but the representation
of the act by which the intellect is fixed on them.

A theoretical concept usually takes a metaphoric form referring back to
"something" not available to the 21
senses, having no
concrete tangible existence in and of itself.
Theoretical concepts we are
familiar with, such as "God," "democracy ," "death," "communism," "patriotism," have been
traditionally formulated to
suit a tacit social cultural agreement.
By accepting these concepts
as having an existence we come to believe them to have

There was a heavy rumble of booted feet

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
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."

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 of America 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.
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.
