"Today abstraction is
no longer that of the map, the double, the mirror, or the concept.
Simulation is no longer that of a territory, a referential being, or a
It is the generation by models of a real without origin or a
The territory no longer precedes the map, nor does
it survive it.
It is nevertheless the map that precedes the territory -
precession of simulacra - that engenders the territory, and if one must return
to the fable, today it is the territory whose shreds slowly rot across the
extent of the map.
It is the real, and not the map, whose vestiges
persist here and there in the deserts that are no longer those of the Empire,
The desert of the Real itself." - Baudrillard
The human mind samples reality
in slices like the frames in a celluloid film.
The human mind receives
a huge amount of information from the surrounding environment through the 21 or
One of the most beautiful things of the mammalian mind is
its ability to filter out extraneous irrelevant information unlike an
The mammalian mind focuses on those qualities
in the environment that are relevant to continued biological existence.
Conversely the mammalian mind may see those only those things in the
culture it has been trained to focus upon.
The Real is shorthand for actual reality
unmitigated by abstract
concepts, symbols and descriptions.
The Real cannot be described
and can only be known through experience.
The best example of an
introduction to the Real comes through an prolonged immersion in Nature.
Some people discover the Real when they have a near death experience.
The Real has been experienced by every human in infancy.
Hyperreality is a cultural overlay that replaces the natural
biologically based thought patterns of the Real as the growing living human
mind conforms to the needs of daily life.
The Real may be rediscovered
in maturity through various
replicas, for Baudrillard, no longer represent the Real.
In the process
of simulation, the distinction between the real and representation collapses
and dissolves away.
All that is left is the simulacrum itself.
In the rise of cinema and television, people come to experience almost
human-like experiences through artificial simulations.
Blood occurs in
cinema and television much more ofetn than in real life.
It is a
simulation that blurs that of what is real.
Real blood looks brownish
and thick, unlike cinematic blood which is more reddish and fluid.
Cinematic blood becomes more real than the Real." - Youssef Benmaniyar
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.
