"This may be 2007, but
when we consider the power of
mythology the psychology of the average man hasn't changed in 4000 years.
And when everyone in the political community believes the same myth, it
becomes a parallel reality.
With TV reinforcing the 911 myth
every single day, it has become stronger than any belief system that I can
remember." - Jeff Rense
The main thrust of
television is to create dissociation from reality, to convert a mental image

"The way in which you
restrain people from doing a wide variety of things, not compatible with the
social order of which they are members, is that you subject them to ritual.
The process is simple: you make them dance round a totem pole
until they are wild with
excitement and become
jellies in the
hysteria of collective frenzy;
you enhance their emotional state
by any device, by all the locally available audio-visual aids, drugs,
dance, music and so on; and once
they are really high, you
stamp upon their minds the
type of concept or
notion to which they subsequently become enslaved.
The savage wakes up with a bad
hangover and a deeply internalized concept.
Religion is ritual, and
the central role of ritual is the endowment
of individuals with compulsive concepts which
internalized notions oblige them to act within prescribed limits.
Each concept has a normative
binding content, as well as a kind of
conceptual system maps out social order and required conduct, and inhibits
inclinations to thought or conduct which would transgress its limits.
I can see no
other explanation concerning how social and conceptual order and homogeneity
are maintained within societies which, at the same time, are so astonishingly
diverse when compared with each other.
This can only be
achieved by means of conceptual
constraint, and that in turn must somehow be instilled.

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational
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
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.
