Nobody ever knew how the fire
The fire started at about 9 p.m. on Sunday, October 8, in

The mythical origin of the fire is that it was started by a cow kicking
over a lantern in the barn owned by Patrick and Catherine O'Leary.
Michael Ahern, the Chicago reporter who penned the cow myth, admitted
in 1893 that he had made it up because he thought it would make colorful

for offices or lodgings.
When the Panic of 1873 occurred business was
prostrate, renters were lacking for the upper stories, payments could not be
made, mortgages were foreclosed,
and the most of the grand Chicago business blocks became the property of the

author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience 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 philosophical 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

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
