Valentinian Gnosticism was
extremely widespread through the Roman
Empire from Alexandria,
Egypt through Asia Minor and Syria in the east, and
Valentinus and the Gnostic movement that bore his
name were considered threats to Pauline
Christianity by church leaders and orthodox Christian scholars including

and Jesus came to bring knowledge (gnosis) to a suffering humanity that was
desperately seeking Æon.
The Valentinian tradition draws a
sharp distinction between the human
Jesus and the divine Christ.
The human Jesus was born the
son of Mary and Joseph.
Jesus is consubstantial with the spiritual
seed of Sophia.
When he was thirty years old, he
went to John the Baptist to be baptized.

Sophia sows the spiritual seed in all who

Valentinus as the author of the Gospel of
Clement of Alexandria records Valentinus was
a follower of Theudas, a
disciple of Saul of Tarsus.
Valentinus claimed Theudas imparted to
him secret wisdom that Saul of Tarsus
privately taught his inner

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 cooperation. Cooperation 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.
