Endless War Continues as Senate Kills Effort to Repeal

"War does not determine who is right

- only who is left."

Bertrand Arthur William Russell

Ten Commandments for Living in a Healthy Democracy

1: Do not feel absolutely certain of anything.

2: Concealing evidence is pointless for the evidence is sure to come to light.

3: Never try to discourage thinking, for you are sure to succeed.

4: Endeavor to overcome disagreement through discussion and not by authority, for a victory dependent upon authority is unreal and illusory.

5: Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found.

6: Do not use power to suppress opinions you think pernicious, for if you do the opinions will suppress you.

7: Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.

8: Find more pleasure in intelligent dissent than in passive agreement, for, if you value intelligence, the former implies a deeper agreement than the latter.

9: Be scrupulously truthful, even when truth is inconvenient, for it is more inconvenient when you try to conceal it.

10. Do not feel envious of the happiness of those who live in a fool's paradise, for only a fool will think that it is happiness.


"There are many whose eyes are awake,

but whose hearts are asleep.

If your heart is awakened,

sleep peacefully in the arms of compassion."

tin does what carbon will not

1802 Tantalum discovered Anders Gustav Ekeberg.

Tantalum is in the production of electronic components.

The oxide layer forms on the surface of tantalum can act as an insulating (dielectric) layer.

Tantalum can be used to coat other metals with a very thin layer, a high capacitance can be achieved in a small volume.

This makes tantalum capacitors attractive for portable electronics such as mobile phones.

"We know that a flower is made only of non-flower elements, like sunshine, earth, water, time, and space.

Everything in the cosmos comes together to bring about the presence of one flower, and these boundless conditions are what we call "non-flower elements."

Compost grows a flower, and a flower creates compost.

If we meditate, we can see the compost in the flower.

If you are an organic gardener, you know that already.

These are not just words.

It is our experience, the fruit of of looking deeply.

Looking at anything, we see the nature of inner being.

A self is not possible without non-self elements.

Looking deeply at anything, we see the whole cosmos.

The one is made of the many.

To take care of ourselves, we take care of those here.

Mutual happiness and stability is self-sustaining.

If we are free of the notions of self and non-self, we will not be afraid of the words self and non-self.

If we see the self as our enemy and think that non-self is our savior, we are caught.

If we see non-self as our enemy and think self is our savior, we are caught.

To push away one thing embraces another.

When we realize that to take care of the self is to take care of non-self, we are free." - Thich Nhat Hanh

personal experience

Knowledge by acquaintance and knowledge by description were introduced by Bertrand Russell to designate two different types of knowledge.

An example of knowledge by acquaintance:

Huckleberry is justified in believing that he is in pain if he is directly and immediately acquainted with his pain.

Huckleberry is not making an inference regarding his pain ("I must be in pain because my arm is bleeding"), but feels it as an immediate sensation ("My arm hurts!").

This direct contact with the fact and the knowledge that this fact makes a proposition true is what is meant with knowledge by acquaintance .

Every other type of knowledge is knowledge by description.

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.

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.
