Among the Romans not a bird,

without a prophecy was heard.

Fortunes of empires oft times hung

on the magician magpie's tongue.

Every crow was to the state,

a sure interpreter of fate

Prophets embodied in a college,

time out of mind in seats of knowledge

Infallible accounts would keep,

when it was best to watch or sleep.

To eat, or drink, to go, or stay,

when to fight, or run away.

When matters were for action ripe,

by looking at the double tripe.

Emperors would live or die,

when a magi in an ass' skull could spy.

When generals would their stations keep,

or turn their backs with hearts of sheep.

"Today's narrative to live by is tomorrow's mythic tradition.

The mythic traditions we live by create the religious rituals we engage in.
Today's ritual political engagement is tomorrow's superstition."

Athbhreith Athbheochan

"Emotion rather than reason appears increasingly to guide social, educational and political propositions.

Eclipse of empiricism by superstition is not exclusive to either the political left or the political right."

Christopher W. Williams

The Greeks and Romans frequently formed their opinion of the success of any enterprise in which they were about to engage, from the flight, chattering, or singing of birds.

The Augur held office to expound to the people the meaning of omens.

Augur is derived from avis garritus, the chattering of birds.

"We find that whole communities suddenly fix their minds upon one object, and go mad in its pursuit; that millions of people become simultaneously impressed with one delusion, and run after it, till their attention is caught by some new folly more captivating." - Charles MacKay

step on a crack

Belief in Authority is the Most Dangerous Superstition

"Superstition, from the Latin word "superstes," is the symbol surviving the idea it represents; it is the form preferred to the thing, the ritual without reason, faith become insensate through isolating itself becomes fanatic.

In consequence the corpse of religion, the death of life, stupefaction as a substitute for inspiration.

Fanaticism is religion serving as a pretext to fury.

Fanaticism is superstition become passionate, its name comes from the word "fanum," which signifies "temple," it is the Temple put in place of God.

It is human and temporal interest of the high priest substituted for the honor of the shaman, the wretched passion of man exploiting the faith of the believer.

Those who intentionally and maliciously confound religion with superstition and fanaticism destroy the Message of Ascension. " - Eliphas Levi

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 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.
