"With the rise of the industrial revolution and the
incalculability of the job, at least four kinds on unemployment became chronic
phenomena in all nations addicted to the machine." - Stuart Chase, 1931

will shift the baseline of what people perceive as the full human experience of
nature, and that it will contribute to what we call environmental generational

"We live in a reality of old
and new that doesn't conform to
cliches. The important idea is that we must rethink what we mean and understand
by the term 'technology'. When we imagine technology we typically focus on
innovation - the new. We typically think of one-way, progressive time lines,
dates of 'invention' and 'first

world and ask them if they have any technology they will ruefully answer 'no'.

consumer driven economy of
America is based on a constellation of concepts about ourselves, reality,
growth, wealth, and
the world we live in. These
conceptions deny the relevance of a spiritual way to do business
activities. Nature is primarily to be used
for human benefit, and anything that cannot be counted or measured in monetary
terms has limited or marginal "utility."
Earth is valued for its
resources, which are assumed to be infinite and inexhaustible. Even if not, we
have faith that human ingenuity will find suitable substitutes for any
shortages, and technological "fixes" for serious degradation of our

that nations and corporations must grow in order to "progress," and assumes

1973 William A. Hamilton founds a
non-profit organization called the Institute for Law and Social Research to
develop case management software for law enforcement office
Funded by grants and contracts from the Law Enforcement
Assistance Administration (LEAA), the Institute developed a program it called
"PROMIS", an acronym for
Prosecutors' Management Information System, for use in law enforcement record
keeping and case-monitoring activities.
PROMIS software was
originally written in COBOL for use on mainframe computers. A later version was
developed to run on 16 bit mini-computers such as the DEC PDP-11. The primary
users of this early version of the software were the United States Attorneys
Office of the District of Columbia, and state and local law enforcement. Both
the mainframe and 16 bit mini-computer versions of
PROMIS were developed
under LEAA contracts, and in later litigation, both Inslaw and DOJ eventually
agreed that the early version of Promis was in the
public domain, meaning
that neither the Institute nor its successor had exclusive rights to
1979 DOJ contractes with the Institute for
Law and Social Research to do a pilot project that installes versions of PROMIS
in four US Attorneys offices.
1980 Congress votes
to abolish the LEAA. Hamilton decides to continue operating as a for-profit
corporation and market the software to current and new users.
Hamilton established the for-profit Inslaw, transferring the Institute's assets
over to the new corporation. The real power of PROMIS, according to Hamilton,
is that with a staggering 570,000 lines of computer code, PROMIS can integrate
innumerable databases without requiring any reprogramming. In essence, PROMIS
can turn blind data into information.
Lawrence McWhorter, director of
the Executive Office for US Attorneys, "We're out to get Inslaw."
Madison "Brick" Brewer at one time worked for Inslaw, but was allowed to resign
when Hamilton found his performance inadequate, according to court documents.
Brewer was then hired into the DOJ specifically to oversee the contract of his
Brewer is aided in his new DOJ job by Peter Videnieks.
Videnieks was fresh from the Customs Service, where he oversaw contracts
between that agency and Hadron, Inc., an incorporation controlled by Ed Meese
and Earl Brian.
A contract dispute evolves over the next few years over
ownership of the code.
Later Judge Bason finds
the DOJ, "unlawfully, intentionally
and willfully" tried to convert the INSLAW Chapter 11 reorganization case to a
Chapter 7 liquidation "without
justification and by improper means." The DOJ "took, converted, stole,
INSLAW enhanced PROMIS by trickery, fraud, and deceit."
March 1982 Inslaw enters into a $9.6 million contract with the
Justice Department to install the public domain version of PROMIS
in 20 US Attorney's offices as a pilot program.
11, 1982 DOJ lawyer reply for clarification: "To the extent that any
other enhancements (beyond the
public domain PROMIS)
were privately funded by Inslaw and not specified to be delivered to the
Department of Justice under any contract or other agreement, Inslaw may assert
whatever proprietary rights it may have."
Inslaw converted the 16-bit
version of PROMIS to a 32-bit architecture running on a DEC VAX minicomputer.
May 6, 1983 Dr. Ben Orr leaves the DOJ with a
computer tape containing PROMIS tucked under his arm. PROMIS was then given or
sold at a profit to Israel and as many as 80 other countries by Dr. Earl W.
Brian, a man with close personal and business ties to then-President Ronald
Reagan and then-Presidential counsel Edwin Meese.
"The importance of
PROMIS is that it is not only capable of interfacing with a wide variety of
data bases in different computer languages and then integrating the data, but
it has also been modified for intelligence purposes. It has then been sold
throughout the world by spy agencies through third parties to clients such as
banks and investment houses envious of its unique capabilities. One key
modification by agencies such as the CIA and
Mossad not disclosed to most
users - is a secret "back door" that permits those with the right codes to
enter databases undetected, retrieve and/or alter information, and leave
without a trace. PROMIS has been extensively reported as being used throughout
the world's financial markets because of its versatility in facilitating
international transactions." - Tom Flocco

Opus Dei, has been tasked
with helping allies with the installation and use of their versions of the
It is alleged that Robert Philip Hanssen sold
high-tech PROMIS software to the Russian KGB for $1.4 million in cash and
diamonds which was then sold it to Usamah bin Mohammad bin Laden.
Robert Philip Hanssen negotiated a plea bargain that enabled him to
escape the death penalty, was sentenced
to life in prison without the possibility of parole, and was required to submit
to a gag order with

Philip Hanssen gave his handlers a technical manual on the secure network for
online access to US intelligence community databases, Field Office Information

MITRE and Ptech
"The aviation agency is installing a computer
system that controllers can use to determine whether airplanes can depart from
established traffic lanes and fly long distances, and whether they will
conflict with other airplanes by doing so." - New York Times of June 7,
2001 Monte R. Belger*, Acting Deputy of the
FAA from 1997-2002, was
the key decision maker responsible
for upgrading the FAA computerized air
traffic control system with MITRE and Ptech.
Documents and reports
from the MITRE Center for Advanced Aviation System Development in McLean,
Virginia, show that Ptech was working with MITRE on FAA computer systems.
After he left the FAA, Monte R. Belger became the "Vice President,
Government Connection" of a small Israeli run incorporation based in the Fort
Lauderdale area called US Aviation Technology.
US Aviation Technology
was founded by Ehud "Udi" Mendelson*, who described himself as "a captain in
the prestigious Army Intelligence Unit of the Israel Defense Force."
The Israel Venture Capital Research Center website specifically name
Monte Belger of Centreville, Virginia, as a Vice President and Government
Connection of US Aviation Technology LLC.
Ehud Mendelson, Chief
Technology Officer of US Aviation Technology, promoted a remote-control system
that allows a "ground pilot" to monitor and adjust the computer flight systems
on aircraft giving the ground pilot all of the data and the visuals that the
pilot in the aircraft has.
"We put the ground 'pilot' in the cockpit."
- Ehud Mendelson
"Ptech was with MITRE Corporation
in the basement of the FAA for two years prior to 911. Their specific job is to
look at interoperability issues the FAA had with
NORAD and the Air Force in the case
of an emergency.
If anyone was in a position to know that the FAA -
that there was a window of opportunity or to insert software or to change
anything - it would have been Ptech along with MITRE.
Ptech software is utilized at the highest levels of
almost every government and military and defense organization in this country

DoD, the House of Representatives, the
Treasury Department, the
IRS, the US Navy, the US Air Force, and, last but not least, the Federal
Aviation Administration." - Indira Singh
Rodney Schlesinger was United States Secretary of Defense from 1973 to 1975
under presidents Richard Nixon and
America's first Secretary of Energy under Jimmy Carter.
Schlesinger* was Chairman of Board of directors of MITRE. The MITRE Corporation

the DoD, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS), and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

would run enterprise software from a Lebanese-owned start-up incorporation

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.
