"Sight gives me information
concerning the world around me.
I look out in front of me, and perceive
the mountains lit up on the horizon.
I look around me: to my left and
right, I see a jagged in space.

I see the wind bend over to the ground the alpine conifer.
I record these images one by one, and their juxtaposition shows me the
real world in which I live, the world around me.
I am at the center of this universe by means of my
gaze, which sweeps across this space and lets me know everything in it.
By combining these
images of reality, I grasp it as a whole, and become a part of it as a result
of my looking.

sense, but still reality.
Vision furnishes me this information.
I need to know what action to take and where to place myself; my sight
enables me to know the reality in which my action will take place, and whether
my action is possible.

Images are points which
take on value only when reassembled, so that they acquire an identity as part
of a total picture.
If I had only one "view" of my universe, I

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.
