individuation

The End of Stoning:
Jesus and the Personhood Revolution




"The individual has always had to struggle

to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe.

To be your own individual is hard business.

You will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened.

No price is too high for the privilege of owning yourself."

Joseph Rudyard Kipling


Kelly Thomas

"Society attacks early when the individual is helpless."

BF Skinner

"America is proud of its hyper-individualism.

We glorify the accomplishments of inventors, entrepreneurs and artists.

Although some individuals thrive, the plight the chronically homeless tells me that our communities are also fragmented and disintegrating.

The Penan nomads of Sarawak, members of an indigenous and primal culture in Borneo, have no technology or material comforts that compare.

But they have six words for "we."

Sharing is an obligation and is expected.

An American child is taught that homelessness is regrettable but inevitable.

A child of the Penan is taught that a poor man shames us all." - Chip Ward

"The really hopeless victims of mental illness appear to be most normal.

They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society.

Adjustment to abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness.

Millions of abnormally normal people cherish "the illusion of individuality" but in fact they have been to a great extent deindividualized.

Individuals have had to deindividualize themselves, have had to deny their native diversity and conform to a standard pattern, have had to do their best to become automata." - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited



"If"



If you can keep your head when all about you

men are losing theirs and blaming it on you.

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you.


If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or, being lied about, but don't deal in lies,

Or be hated don't give way to hating,

And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;


If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;

If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim,

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

and treat those two impostors just the same.


If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken

twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools.

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

and stoop and rebuild them with worn-out tools.


Joseph Rudyard Kipling




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 central banking 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.
