A civilization is
defined as a social culture in an advanced state of material development marked
by arts and
including writing, and
complex political and social
civilization to function and remain viable the citizens must continually agree
that the laws are just.
Citizens of any and all forms of goverment
must have the ability to solicit for modification of laws so the law continues
to remain just under changing circumstances.
A failure on the part of
any faction of citizens to respect law, especially leaders, undermines the very
foundations upon which the civilization has been built and results in a
collapse of the civilization.
The best preserved ancient written code of
law was carved in basalt around 1760 BC in Babylon.
Code of Hammurabi
consisted of 282 laws in total.
The purpose of the Code of Hammurabi
was to allow justice to prevail in the
land, to prevent the
strong from oppressing the weak and to further the welfare of the
The earlier Code of Ur-Nammu (21st century BC), the Hittite laws
(ca. 1300 BC), and Mosaic Law (ca.
~ 1300 BC under Moshe
Rabbenu), all contain statutes that bear a remakable resemblance to the
Code of Hammurabi and other law codices from the same geographic area in the
interlocking interwoven systems of:

The collapse of any civilization is directly
related to multiple
factors but the overriding factor is the inability to
adjust to change.

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
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.
