experiment with philosophy

"Philosophy - the power of separate thought and the thought of separate power - was never by itself able to supersede theology. The spectacle is the material reconstruction of the religious illusion. Spectacular technology has not dispersed the religious mists into which human beings had projected their own alienated powers, it has merely brought those mists down to earth, to the point that even the most mundane aspects of life have become impenetrable and unbreathable.

The illusory paradise representing a total denial of earthly life is no longer projected into the heavens, it is embedded in earthly life itself. The spectacle is the technological version of the exiling of human powers into a "world beyond"; the culmination of humanity's internal separation." - Guy Debord

The Philosopher's Stone

"Of the philosophers, whose authority is of greater weight, their judgement is to be relied on, as they paid attention, not to matters of fiction, but to the investigation of the truth." - Lactantius

"The basic tenet of perennial philosophy is the quality of life is dependent on spiritual intelligence.

Spiritual intelligence is the capacity to conduct life in such a way that it reflects deep metaphysical understanding of reality and self.

Buddhist scriptures refer to this kind of spiritual wisdom as 'prajñ para mit'." - Stanislav Grof

A philosopher, is a "lover of Sophia."

Philosophy, a manner of thinking involving the inquiry into the essence of the object under consideration, requires critical analysis of assumptions, moral self-discipline and compassion in pursuit of fundamental wisdom.

Philosophy involves the rational and disciplined investigation of questions about existence, knowledge, ethics, consciousness, aesthetics, metaphysics, logic and epistemology.

When applied to any particular school of knowledge, philosophy denotes the general laws or principles - foundation - on which superordinate phenomena or facts relating to the object under consideration are comprehended.

Thus philosophy, when applied to God, is theology; when applied to matter, physics; when it treats of man, it is anthropology and psychology, which are connected by logic and ethics; when it treats of the necessary conceptions and connections by which philosophy is possible, it is called metaphysics.

meaning of life according to different philosophers

"Philosophy reveals reality and mystery to be essentially synonymous.

Reality is palpable mystery.

Perception, through names or labels, does not make reality less mysterious.

It is getting at this essential nature of things beyond names and labels, as close as humanly possible, that is the activity of philosophy." - Lew Paz

The philosopher is an individual that spends time thinking deeply.

There is an unfortunate reality that we all must deal with here.

All language of philosophy must use metaphor and analogy.

Most philosophers are attempting to make certain points.

A scholars analysis or interpretation, observed from his or her unique perspective, may not fully reflect the author original intensions.

As a matter of fact it can not be as the interpreters can not have had the same experiences as the individual penning the philosophical statements.

A seasoned philosopher lives a life of reason with equanimity reducing the principles of his philosophy to practice in the conduct of his life according to the rules of practical wisdom while meeting vicissitudes with calmness.


"Jung considered alchemy in a way few people before him had imagined.

Alchemy for the most part had been relegated to the status of a historical anachronism or hidden away within the confines of esoteric occultism.

To the contemporary mind, alchemists were viewed as working in their laboratories, hopelessly trying to change lead into gold.

Their practice was seen as a precursor to the modern science of chemistry.

Jung began his reflections with a similar attitude, but as inquiry grew deeper, he saw alchemists were speaking in symbols about the human soul and were working as much with the imagination as with the literal materials of their art.

The gold that they were trying to produce was not the common or vulgar gold but an aurum non vulgi or aurum philosophicum—a philosophical gold (Jung 1961)." - The Black Sun, Stanton Marlan

unique library index

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.
