“Artist, you are a priest:
Art is the great mystery and,
if your effort results in a masterpiece,
a ray of the divine will descend as on an altar.

Artist, you are a king:
Art is the true empire,
if your hand draws a perfect line,
the Cherubim themselves will descend to revel in their reflection.
Spiritual design, a line of the soul, form of understanding,
you make our dreams incarnate.

Artist, you are a mage:
Art is the great mystery,
it only proves our immortality."
- Joséphin Péladan


Art reflects the creative immortality of the individual.

(unless it is CIA induced abstract expressionist art!)


"Genius has been the servant of tyranny and art has advertised the merits of the local cult.
Time, as it passes, separates the good art from the bad metaphysics. Can we learn to make this separation, not after the event, but while it is actually taking place? That is the question."
Aldous Huxley

"Awareness is only one part of consciousness.

The greater part is imagination/creation.

It needs no factual foundation.

It needs no sanction.

Art makes realities, worlds, universes.

In doing so, it jettisons rules.

It makes up its own rules,

or dispenses with rules altogether."

- Jon Rappoport

"To sing and play an instrument, to dance, to draw, to create beautiful objects from the materials available in the environment, is as natural a part of being human as it is to walk, talk, and play. The atrophy of these functions began with the advent of the Neolithic division of labor, and accelerated as the division of labor intensified withthe global industrial revolution, which also created the means to replace them with mass-produced substitutes.

As the magical power of art came to be understood in terms of its representational content artists pursued perfection in their images - tantamount to perfect control over reality. (see transcendental temptation)


learn how to see


Yet when Raphael, Michelangelo, and Leonardo da Vinci made the final technical breakthroughs in perspective around the year 1500, nothing magical happened. Perspective painting records objects as they look, at a moment in time, thereby implicitly subordinating reality to the human observer and affirming the fundamental dualism of separation of self from the natural world.

The ambition was to make representation real, the same ambition that lives on in the latest version of the trap for immortality: the software simulation of consciousness in a virtual reality world. We now live almost wholly in a manufactured reality, a world of images, but nothing has actually changed." - Charles Eisenstein

"Traditionally, the arts have been ways of making that have placed a just value on their materials or subjects, on the uses and the users of the things made by art, and on the artists themselves. They have, that is, been ways of giving honor to the works of God." - Wendell Berry

"The brain has a strong propensity to organize information and perception in patterns, and music plays into that inclination. From an acoustical perspective, music is an overstructured language, which the brain invented and which the brain loves to hear." - Michael Thaut

Art is defined as:

the products of human creativity

the creation of beautiful or significant things

human works of beauty considered as a group.

a nonscientific branch of learning; one of the liberal arts

a field or category of art, such as music, poetry, or literature

a superior skill that is attained by study, practice and observation

photographs or other visual representations in a printed publication

art and living patterns

All social cultures set living Patterns.

Predatory psychopaths see Patterns and take advantage of the pattern weaknesses due to taboo.

Within a social culture taboo was originally set through example: tragedy - do not mimic!

Creative individuals recognize these patterns as well but they are restricted by moral concerns.

Predators strive to keep minds restricted within narrow limits of confined understanding.

Art allows direct access to the Human Subconscious.

Predators fail to understand patterns embedded within Art as patterns are infinitely variable.

Patterns upon Patterns are Perceptual to the Artist that Prints Symbiotic Patterns on Reality.



"Art is like chocolate to the brain. Art taps into both sides. Art has benefited the soul of the species since the time of cavemen.

Behavioral scientists point out that activities that give you a sense of mastery, a sense of control, have a very positive effect on your well-being. A sense of mastery and of control creates positive feedback to the immune system." - Gene D. Cohen


both sides now


Findings from biological research suggest that sustained involvement in positive, gratifying activities results in positive immune system responses, suggesting a protective immune system boost for individuals involved in positive, gratifying activities such as the creation of works of art.

Rachel Aliene Corrie

poet


Feel sick to my stomach a lot
from being doted on all the time,
very sweetly, by people who are facing doom.

You can always hear the tanks and bulldozers passing by.
I have had bad nightmares about tanks and bulldozers
outside our house and you and me inside.

Tanks and bulldozers destroyed 25 greenhouses
the livelihoods for 300 people.
Then the bulldozers come and take out
people’s vegetable farms and gardens.
This happens every day.

I think that I should at least mention that
I am also discovering a degree of strength
and of basic ability for humans to remain human
in the direst circumstances.

I think the word is dignity.
I wish you could meet these people.
Maybe, hopefully,
some day you will.

Israeli bulldozer


Rachel Corrie was killed by an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Caterpillar D9 bulldozer on March 16, 2003
in a non-violent protest while trying to stop the destruction of Palestinian homes in Gaza.

"He [the driver] knew absolutely she was there. The bulldozer waited for a few seconds over her body and it then reversed, leaving its scoop down so that if she had been under the bulldozer, it would have crushed her a second time. Only later when it was much more clear of her body did it raise its scoop." - Tom Dale

Dr. Yehudah Hiss, an Israeli pathologist, found the cause of death to be "pressure to the chest." Her shoulder blades had been crushed, her spine was broken in five places, six ribs broken and her face was slashed by the bulldozer blade.

music

"To most people music is intrinsically attractive. Moreover, melodies tend to ingrain themselves in the listener's mind. A tune will haunt the memory during the whole of a lifetime. Here, for example, is a quite uninteresting statement or value judgment. As it stands nobody will pay attention to it. But now set the words to a catchy and easily remembered tune. Immediately they become words of power. Moreover, the words will tend automatically to repeat themselves every time the melody is heard or spontaneously remembered. Orpheus has entered into an alliance with Pavlov - the power of sound with the conditioned reflex." - Aldous Huxley


There are a lot of people who consider modern music annoying. Many become emotionally disturbed listening to certain types of music. What few people realize, regardless of the type of music played in the Western World, the standard Anglo-American tuning for instruments and voices was instituted at the same time, by the same agents and agencies, advancing acoustic war studies for inducing "mass hysteria."

Analyzing the antecedents of current geopolitics and economics, this dirty fact of musical history may be foundational to the status-quo, and instrumental to contemporary sociocultural crises, including modern pandemic psychopathology. Throughout history there have been persons of wealth and power engaged in war-making, profiteering, and various methods of population control.

A major objective of profitable population control research was to determine the musical factors capable of producing psychopathology, emotional distress, and "mass hysteria." Academically directed by grants provided by the Rockefeller Foundation, in concert with the US Navy and National Defense Research Council according to the foundation’s archives, acoustic energy researchers, including Harold Burris-Meyer, an audio engineer and drama instructor at New Jersey’s Stevens Institute of Technology, were commissioned. Burris-Meyer is best known for providing consulting services to the Muzak Corporation, “which used his expertise to optimize sound installations in factories so that emotional motivation of workers achieved through music would not be adversely effected by factory noise . . ," wrote James Tobias, a Professor of English at the Univ. of Calif.

Tobias reviewed Rockefeller Foundation (RF) archives, and documented investigations leading to psychological warfare applications of acoustic vibrations, ultimately advanced militarily and commercially. Burris-Meyer, according to Tobias, contributed to the Department of Defense during World War II, “including building speaker arrays deployed on warplanes such that enemy combatants could be addressed from the air” to produce psycho-emotional affects leading to "mass hysteria." Additionally, the Princeton Radio Project played a role in this research.

As this research and development of the broadcasting industry advanced to impact “herd behavior” and public health, it is clear that any malady generated musically/vibrationally (i.e., bioenergetically), would increase investors’ profitability.

According to Tobias, Burris-Meyer became convinced that “audio control of human emotions was possible for a large enough portion of an audience to provide effective crowd control – a line of research," that John Marshall, “ultimately found irrelevant for understanding the artistic or cultural values of music. . . . " but obviously fulfilled a military objective.

In 1910, motivated by a grant provided by the Rockefeller Foundation for the American Federation of Musicians, the initial effort to institute A=440Hz standard tuning had limited success in America. In Europe, the initial effort had near zero impact. Additional promotions were needed to secure the music world’s acceptance of A=440Hz that was perceived as less pleasant, or dull.

On October 6, 1938, the year before A=440Hz standard tuning was adopted, researcher David Stevens wrote to Frank Jewett, vice-president of ATT, regarding studies to “control the emotional response of audiences by mechanical means."

Jewett’s response letter of October 11, 1938, noted Bell Labs officials expressed “embarrassment” for the company’s involvements in this nefarious project, despite its profitable applications and military merits.

Lynn Cavanagh reviewed the history of standard musical tuning and determined that contrary to propaganda, and current consensus, it was 1939, not 1938, as the true year the British Standards Institute (BSI) adopted the A=440Hz standard promoted by the Rockefeller-Nazi consortium. The A=440Hz frequency was instituted at the precise time WWII preparations were being finalized by the petrochemical-pharmaceutical war financiers.

Foundation funding established the Western World’s standard militarized musical tuning of A=440Hz frequency. As A=440Hz standard tuning is relatively distressing this simple fact implicates these parties and their research into aversive musical frequencies for military and commercial uses.

Tobias’s manuscript makes it clear that he was alarmed at his discovery that bioenergetic research in acoustic science focused on producing the social impacts of emotional arousal and even "mass hysteria." This research included “investigations in ‘physical analysis’ of sound effects, . . . an established technique which others may use in practice dependably . . . ," the determination of measures by which audience reactions could be accessed, "’even without any technical capacity for psychological measurement of audience response,’" and the use of sound effects that “produced what was really mass hysteria."

"[T]he clear interest here seems to be in the ‘dramatic’ use emphasized in . . . bringing audiences, with the use of the ‘sensory appeal’ of sound effects, to states of ‘mass hysteria.’" - James Tobias

Preliminary research and analysis by Walton, Koehler, Reid, et al. confirms A=440Hz frequency music conflicts with human chakra energy centers from the heart to the base of the spine. The A=440Hz frequency vibration scale stimulates ego and left-brain function, suppressing the “heart-soul” link,intuition and creative inspiration.


chakra frequencies


Harmonious alternatives have been suppressed even though A=444Hz (C(5)=528Hz) analysis found this frequency more compatible with nature and more pleasant to listen to.

If humanity were to be optimally suppressed spiritually, the musical tuning of A=444Hz would be neglected religiously, as it has been. Religious leaders suppressed the original Solfeggio musical scale in which A=444Hz, virtually equivalent to (C(5)=528Hz, is the “MI” tone or “MIracle” note played by the Pythagoreans referenced by Tobias as subscribing to the bioenergetic epistemologies described by Helmholtz.

In India, the origin of solmization was to be found in Vedic texts like the Upanishads, which discuss a musical system of seven notes, realized ultimately in what is known as sargam. In Indian classical music, the notes in order are: sa, re, ga, ma, pa, dha, and ni.

Solmization is a system of attributing a distinct syllable to each note in a musical scale. Various forms of solmization are in use and have been used throughout the world, but solfège is the most common convention in Europe and North America. The seven syllables normally used for this practice in English-speaking countries are: do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, and ti (with a chromatic scale of ascending di, ri, fi, si, li and descending te, le, se, me, ra).

The use of a seven-note diatonic musical scale is ancient, though originally it was played in descending order.

Byzantine music uses syllables derived from the Greek alphabet to name notes: starting with C, the notes are ni (eta), pa (alpha), vu' (beta), ga (gamma), di (delta), ke (epsilon), zo (zeta).

In Japanese music, the first line of Iroha, an ancient poem used as an "ABC" of traditional kana, is used for solmization. The syllables representing the notes A, B, C, D, E, F, G are i, ro, ha, ni, ho, he, to respectively.

In Indonesia, Javanese musicians derive syllables from numbers; ji-ro-lu-[pi]-ma-nem (siji, loro, telu, [papat, normally skipped in pentatonic scales], lima, enem).

In music theory, the tritone is strictly defined as a musical interval composed of three adjacent whole tones. For instance, the interval from F up to the B above it (in short, F–B) is a tritone as it can be decomposed into the three adjacent whole tones F–G, G–A, and A–B. According to this definition, within a diatonic scale there is only one tritone for each octave. For instance, the above-mentioned interval F–B is the only tritone which can be formed using the notes of the C major scale.

A tritone is also commonly defined as an interval spanning six semitones. According to this definition, a diatonic scale contains two tritones for each octave. For instance, the above-mentioned C major scale contains the tritones F–B (from F to the B above it, also called augmented fourth) and B–F (from B to the F above it, also called diminished fifth, semidiapente, or semitritonus).

In classical music, the tritone is a harmonic and melodic dissonance and is important in the study of musical harmony.

{HARMONIES are created by notes sounding together at frequencies which are in proportion to each other. The proportions can be expressed by numbers. Low numbers produce consonant harmonies, and higher numbers give rise to dissonance. For example, if two notes an octave apart are sounded together, the frequency of the upper note is exactly double that of the lower. In numerical terms, upper doh over lower doh = 2:1. The sound is clear, pure and open. Sound sol above doh (the perfect fifth) and the proportion is 3:2. This sound is brilliant, confident. Sound fa over doh (the perfect fourth) and this gives 4:3. The word "amen" is often set to these notes. These two intervals are inversions of each other: doh above sol gives 4:3 and doh over fa gives 3:2. Mi over doh (the major third) is 5:4, a lovely interval expressing warmth, gentleness, "togetherness" and much more; its inversion, doh over mi (the minor sixth) gives 8:5, a curiously astringent but also beautiful interval. Doh over la (the minor third) gives 6:5; and la over doh (the major sixth) gives 5:3 - two more beautiful harmonies.

In music, a consonance (Latin con-, "with" + sonare, "to sound") is a harmony, chord, or interval considered stable (at rest), as opposed to a dissonance (Latin dis-, "apart" + sonare, "to sound"), which is considered unstable (or temporary, transitional). In more general usage, a consonance is a combination of notes that sound pleasant to most people when played at the same time; dissonance is a combination of notes that sound harsh or unpleasant to most people. This is a cultural concept as musics other than those from the western art music tradition, e.g., Balkan, Arabic, Chinese, do not follow this definition.}


The tritone can be used to avoid traditional tonality: "Any tendency for a tonality to emerge may be avoided by introducing a note three whole tones distant from the key note of that tonality."

Contrarily, the tritone found in the dominant seventh chord helps establish the tonality of a composition. These contrasting uses exhibit the flexibility, ubiquity, and distinctness of the tritone in music.

The condition of having tritones is called tritonia; that of having no tritones is atritonia. A musical scale or chord containing tritones is called tritonic; one without tritones is atritonic.

The Augmented 4th, or Tritonus, which spans three whole steps in the scale, is one of the most dissonant musical intervals around. It was considered unpleasant and ugly, and was named "diabolus in musica", "the devil in music" or the Devil's Interval.

The Devil's Interval enjoyed great popularity among composers in the 19th Century, when "you have got lots of presentations of evil built around the tritone".

"It can sound very spooky. It depends on how you orchestrate. It is also quite exciting," says Professor Deathridge. "[Wagner's] Gotterdammerung has one of the most exciting scenes - a 'pagan', evil scene, the drums and the timpani. It is absolutely terrifying, it is like a black mass. There is a big connection between heavy rock music and Wagner. They have cribbed quite a lot from 19th Century music."

A modern advocate of the tritone is Black Sabbath - the rock outfit led by Ozzy Osbourne - particularly in their signature song, Black Sabbath, a milestone in the genesis of heavy metal.

Western Civilization has gone from ‘ascent’—belief in God—focused on the higher centers of love, joy, purity and selflessness, to descent . . . focused on the lower centers of consciousness like those of power, wealth and physical gratification.

We are engaged in a "conspiracy reality" in which ultimate power and control is waged bioenergetically (i.e., biospiritually), through frequency modulations or electromagnetic manipulations affecting “consciousness” and impacting biology, physiology, and human behavior.

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 created 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 Life - 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 Life 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 central banking system, mass 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 mass 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.
