Waltz of the Flowers



I offer flowers

I sow flower seeds

I plant flowers

I assemble flowers

I pick flowers

I pick a variety of flowers

I combine flowers

I seek flowers

I share flowers

I arrange flowers

I thread flowers in a string

Tezcatlipoca


I form a bouquet of flowers

I make a flower necklace,

a flower garland,

a flower shield

I offer flowers to One

I provide One with flowers

I provide One with a flower necklace

I clothe One in flowers

I cover One in flowers

I love One with flowers

Six ways ancient Maya still alter the environment

One Catholic Priest Destroyed the Entire Mayan Written Language




"We won't have a society
if we destroy the environment."


"Always remember that you are absolutely unique.

Just like everyone else.

A small group of thoughtful people could change the world.

Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

Thanks to television, youth is seeing history censored before their eyes.

I measure success in terms of the contributions an individual makes.

The only thing worth doing is to add to the sum of accurate information.

Fear of punishment can be regarded as merely cowardly.

Solutions are dependent on shaping."

Margaret Mead

1500 BC Olmecs grind cocoa beans, mixed them with water and add spices, chillies and herbs.

Theobroma cacoa processing

For the next 3000 years first the Olmecs, then the Mayans (600 BC) and finally the Aztecs (400 AD) develop successful methods for cultivating cocoa.

Chocolate is used in religious rituals dedicated to Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec god responsible for bringing the cocoa tree to man, to Chak ek Chuah, the Mayan patron saint of cocoa and as an offering at the funerals of noblemen.

1502 Christopher Columbus and his crew seize a large native canoe that contains, among other goods for trade, cacao beans.

Between the early 17th and late 19th centuries the laborious and slow processing of the cacao bean was manual.

The European craze for chocolate brought with it a thriving slave market.

Cacao plantations spread, as the English, Dutch, and French colonized and planted.

With the depletion of Mesoamerican workers, largely to disease, cocoa beans production was often the work of poor wage laborers and enslaved Africans.

1585 First cargo of cocoa beans arrived on the Iberian Peninsula from New Spain.

The Whole Process Of Making Chocolate

1650 Chocolate beverages first appeared in England coinciding with the arrival of tea from China and coffee from the Middle East.

1674 First chocolate lozenge appears in England.

1729 The first mechanic cocoa grinder is invented Walter Churchman in Bristol, UK where His Majesty King George II grants a patent and sole use of an invention for the “expeditious, fine and clean making of chocolate by an engine.”

1776 Doret invents a hydraulic process to grind cocoa beans into a paste, facilitating the first large-scale production of chocolate.

1815 Dutch chemist Coenraad van Houten introduces alkaline salts to chocolate to reduce its bitterness.

Cocoa beans are fermented, dried, roasted, and separated from their skins.
The beans are ground into cocoa mass (cocoa paste).

The mass is melted and the 'liquor' is either separated into cocoa solids and cocoa butter, or cooled and molded into blocks of raw chocolate.

The term liquor, used at this point, means 'liquid' or 'fluid'.

Chocolate liquor (cocoa liquor) is pure cocoa mass in solid or semi-solid form.

Chocolate liquor contains roughly 53 percent cocoa butter (fat), about 17 percent carbohydrates, 11 percent protein, 6 percent tannins, and 1.5 percent theobromine.

1828 Dutch are producing and selling cocoa 'powder.'

To make Dutch cocoa powder, chocolate liquor is pumped into giant hydraulic presses, where about half of the cocoa butter is squeezed out.

Baking soda is added to the remaining material, which is called "press cake."

Treated press cake is then cooled, pulverized, and sifted to form cocoa powder.

1875 Daniel Peter invents milk chocolate by mixing a powdered milk developed by Henri Nestlé with the chocolate liquor.

1893 Milton Hershey spots chocolate making equipment at the Worlds Fair in Chicago and begins production at a factory in Pennsylvania.

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.
