Paper money is a paper
or bearer bond.
Mammon is Syriac for "money" or "riches," and is used in
this sense in Luke 16:9.
It occurs frequently in the Chaldee
Targum, but no word resembling it is found in the
In the fourth
century Jerome found it in use
in Syria, and Augustine in
the dialect of his native Berber country.
Berber is spoken by large
populations of Morocco, Algeria and Libya, by smaller populations of Tunisia,
northern Mali, western and northern Niger, northern Burkina Faso and Mauritania
and in the Siwa Oasis of Egypt.
There is no ground for believing that
it ever became the name of any deity, who, like the Plutus of the Greeks, was
worshipped as the god of wealth.
Here, there is obviously an approach
to a personification for the sake of contrasting the service or worship of
money with that which is due to God.
Milton describes Mammon as among
the fallen angels.
"Money is an imaginary value,
an artificial creation
of human speculation.
It has nothing to do with nature, nothing to do
with organic things.
Money does not make a man stronger, wiser or nobler.

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.
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.
