"Any court that was established in any village
after the Great Synagogue and enacted legislations or enacted customs for the
village's residents, its enactments did not gain the acceptance of all Israel,
because of the remoteness of their settlements and the difficulties of travel,
and because the members of the court of any particular village were just
individuals and the Great Rabbinical Court of seventy members had ceased to
exist several years before the writing of the
Babylonian Talmud." -

Benedict de Spinoza was
misunderstood by his
contemporaries and later
philosophers as well.
This misunderstanding occurred in Western
culture because Spinoza's explanation of reality was seen as
Spinoza was raised in a Portuguese-Jewish community in

the authenticity of the Hebrew
scripture and the nature of the
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.
two reasons Spinoza's explanation of reality was rejected:
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 a
loss of individuality.
Rene Descartes saw correctly that
the ability of consciousness to
separate itself from nature allowed that mind an ability
to observe natural phenomena
without considering itself in relation to the phenomena observed.
Dissociative states occur
naturally while engaging
consciousness as a mistake in
the fact that Descartes' Cartesian
consciousness came to be considered an actual fact as
a clever mental exercise
to reduce variables to see clearly.

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
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.
