Do not make yourself an idol

Do not take the Lord's name in vain

Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy

Honor your mother and father

Do not murder

Do not commit adultery

Do not steal

Do not testify or bear false witness

Do not covet

ten laws and ten fingers - a law for every finger !

For the Hebrews if a man was lost in battle, captured or killed, then it was the responsibility of his brother, if he had a brother, to take his brother's wife as his own wife.

"The highest function of the intellect is to discern
the true from the false." - Moses Maimonides

"Hebrew poetry was not based on rhyme or rhythm
but on parallelism - parallelism of thought."
Fred G. Zaspel

"Any court established after the Great Synagogue enacting legislation or defining customs for the village's residents did not gain the acceptance of all Israel due to remoteness of settlements and the difficulties of travel.

The members of the court of any particular village are just individuals.

The Great Rabbinical Court of Seventy ceased to exist several years before the writing of the Babylonian Talmud." - Moses Maimonides

"A low estimate of non-Jews pervades much of Talmudic literature.

The Mishnah admonishes Jews not to leave their animals unattended at the inn of a gentile, because gentiles are suspected of engaging in bestiality.

Gentiles are described also as liable to rape and murder, so that a lonely Jew should avoid their company." - rabbi Ismar Schorsch

Baruch Spinoza


Benedict de Spinoza was misunderstood by his contemporaries and later Western philosophers as well.

This misunderstanding occurred in Western culture because Spinoza's explanation of reality was seen as subsuming the individual.

Spinoza was raised in a Portuguese-Jewish community in Amsterdam.

He developed highly controversial ideas regarding the authenticity of the Hebrew scripture and the nature of the Divine.

Jewish religious authorities issued a herem against him, causing him to be shunned by the community at age 23.

His books were also later put on the Index of Forbidden Books.

For two reasons Spinoza's explanation of reality was rejected:

Having an individually unique bodily substance we inevitably think of ourselves as an individual thing separate from all other things that exist.

Western consciousness has an unjustified fear of autonomy being subsumed by the oneness of all things, a fear of the loss of individual identity.

Rene Descartes saw correctly that the ability of consciousness to separate itself from nature allowing that mind an ability to observe natural phenomena without considering itself in relation to the phenomena observed.

Dissociative states occur naturally while engaging rational consciousness.

Spinoza repudiated Descartes' Cartesian consciousness as a mistake in the fact that Descartes' Cartesian consciousness came to be considered an actual fact as opposed to a clever mental exercise to reduce variables to see clearly.

Spinoza's philosophical concepts include:





reason is universal

eternal consciousness

basis of true knowledge

actuality of true knowledge

distortion due to inadequacy

immutable truth of consciousness

perception is based on perspectives

social cohesion is dependent on governance

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.
