Barely Breathing

"Breathe in with the deep awareness that you are a Human Being.

Breathe out and touch the Earth, a non-man element, as your Mother.

Visualize the streams of water beneath the Earth's surface.

See the minerals.

See our Mother Earth, the mother of us all.

Then bring your arms up and breathe in again, touching the trees, flowers, fruits, birds, squirrels, air and sky - the non-man elements.

When your head is touching the air, the sun, the moon, the galaxies, the cosmos - non-man elements that have come together in order to make man possible - you see that all of the elements making your being possible.

Breathing in again, stretch your arms and be aware that you also penetrate other elements." - Thich Nhat Hanh

Sky Father sits brooding and watching Grandfather Beaver.

His appetite for food gone.

At his feet crouch the twin wolves Romulus and Remus.

Two Ravens perch, one on each shoulder.

One is named Memory and the other is named Thought.

Sky Father sends Memory and Thought out each day to observe the world.

Sky Father ponders the words of the Ravens, Thought and Memory.

Sky Father sees that there will always be unknown unknowns but wants to stave off the day of Ragnarok.

Sky Father makes a pilgrimage everyday.

Sky Father descends to the Well of Wisdom seeking a draft of Living Water.

"Man, endowed with reason,
has the power to create, so that
he can add to what he has been given.

But up to now man has not
been a Creator, only a destroyer.

Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up,
wild life becomes extinct, the climate is ruined

and the land grows poorer and uglier every day."-

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860-1904), Russian

1920s to the 1960s Seven incinerators dump toxic ash containing lead, arsenic, dioxins and PCBs into predominantly African American neighborhoods in Jacksonville, Florida.

White House states that lying was justified by national security.

Professor at Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz School for Public Policy and Management states that "it is our best estimate that more people are being killed by air pollution from traffic than from traffic accidents."

This includes people who prematurely die from asthma, heart disease and lung disorders.

Climate 101: Ozone Depletion

Illegal CFC production may be slowing ozone layer recovery

2005 Researchers at Columbia University concluded that in utero exposure to air pollutants, primarily from auto exhaust, can cause chromosomal damage associated with an increased risk of cancer.

ConocoPhillips agrees to pay $64.5 million to settle several class action lawsuits filed over 2 chemical releases - 64 tons of sulfur dioxide, the other 40 tons - at it's Westlake, Louisiana facility in 2003.

Researchers from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine find that the sustained elevation of a dramatically increased suicide rate among North Carolina residents linked to industrial airborne pollutants emanating from asphalt plants, paper mills and sewage treatment facilities.

Previous studies have shown that occupational exposure to hydrogen sulfide, at levels of 10 parts per million for a ten minute ceiling, can result in nervousness, mania, dementia and violence.

A local paper mill has reportedly released over 93,000 pounds of hydrogen sulfide since 2003 and the suicide rate is rate in two Salisbury neighborhoods is tripled the statewide average and the suicide rate in Haywood County has doubled since 1996.

These North Carolina residents live in mountain valleys that experience frequent temperature inversions which prevent the hydrogen sulfide from dispersing.

2008 ExxonMobil agrees to pay nearly $6.1 million in civil penalties for violating the terms of a 2005 court-approved Clean Air Act agreement, the Department of Justice and the Environmental Protection Agency.

The 2005 settlement already required ExxonMobil to pay a $7.7 million civil penalty, perform an additional $6.7 million in supplemental environmental projects in communities around the corporation's refineries, and install pollution controls at six of its American refineries.

November 2004 Researchers at the University of Southern California concluded that exposure to fine particulates from power plants and vehicles can cause and accelerate artery disease.

10 micrograms per cubic meter of air increase in fine particulates lead to an increase of up to 4.3% in the thickness of artery walls.

This thickening can lead to calcification and rupture of the arteries.

Exposure to fine particulates in the air less than 2.5 microns in diameter can shorten life expectancy by up to 2 years.

"A new appraisal of existing studies documenting the links between tiny soot particles and premature death from cardiovascular ailments shows that mortality rates among people exposed to the particles are twice as high as previously thought.." - Felicity Barringer June 2, 2009

February 2005 Researchers from the University of Albany, School of Public Health conclude people living near sites contaminated with PCBs and persistent pesticides have an increased risk of developing chronic respiratory disease, including chronic bronchitis and chronic airways obstruction as well as suppression of the immune system.

"Particulate pollution from diesels shortens the lives of nearly 21,000 Americans each year.

3,000 Americans die prematurely from lung cancer.

Tens of thousands suffer heart attacks and asthma attacks and other respiratory problems associated with particulate emissions from diesel vehicles.

These illnesses result in thousands of emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and lost workdays.

Together with the toll of premature deaths, the health damages from diesel fine particles will total $139 billion in 2010.

Nationally, diesel exhaust poses a cancer risk that is 7.5 times higher than the combined total cancer risk from all other air toxins.

In the US, the average lifetime nationwide cancer risk due to diesel exhaust is over 350 times greater than the level US EPA considers to be "acceptable".

Residents from more than two-thirds of all US counties face a cancer risk from diesel exhaust greater than 100 deaths per million population.

People living in eleven urban counties face a diesel cancer risk greater than 1,000 in a million – one thousand times the level EPA says is acceptable.

People who live in metropolitan areas with a high concentration of diesel vehicles and traffic feel their impacts most acutely.

The risk of lung cancer from diesel exhaust for people living in urban areas is three times that for those living in rural areas.

Reducing diesel fine particle emissions 50% by 2010, 75% by 2015, and 85% by 2020 would save nearly 100,000 lives between now and 2030." - Diesel and Health in America: The Lingering Threat, February 2005, Clean Air Task Force

2006 Researchers with CIIT Centers for Health Research (CIIT was formerly known as the Chemical Industry Institute of Technology) conclude that inhaled nanoscale particles can pass through the blood/brain barrier and lodge in the brain.

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 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.

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.
