"There are two obvious
escapes from this dilemma.
One is to
stop being keenly
intelligent and acutely
conscious of the facts.
Fall back upon
an inflexibly formal,
authoritarian pattern of
thought and don't be sophisticatedly psychological
about your motives.
'Just obey, and don't ask
This is called
pride of the intellect or intellectualism.
But here we find
ourselves in another dilemma, for the
religion of simple
obedience soon totters
toward empty formalism and
moral legalism with
no heart in it, the very Pharisaism
against which Christ railed.
The other escape is into
a romanticism of the instincts,
a glorification of mere impulse
ignoring the equally natural gift of
will and reason.

with which to en❡a❡e Яeality to which its author adheres. The author feels that
the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a
populace unable to discern pr☠paganda from Яeality and that this has been
done purposefully by an internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel
through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reaλity on the
human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate
religi☯us practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their
religi⚛us ide⚛l⚛gy. This web site marks the founding of a
system of philºsºphy nªmed the Mŷsterŷ of the
Lumière Infinie - a rational
re☦igion based on reaso🐍 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 pers∞nal relati∞n
with Æ∞n and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowλedge of
reaλity in the hope of curing the spiritual c✡rrupti✡n that
has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Mŷsterŷ of the
Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the
author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us
beliefs in America is considered a "hate ¢rime."
This web site in
no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence. To the contrary the intent here is
to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal
c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to c✡ntr✡l the human race.
The internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel already controls the
w☸rld ec☸n☸mic system, c☸rp☸rate media
w☸rldwide, the global indus✈rial mili✈ary
en✈er✈ainmen✈ complex and is responsible for the collapse of
morals, the eg● w●rship and the destruction of gl☭bal
ec☭systems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
with bi☣hazards 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 p☠pulace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by
pressing emotional buttons which have been πreπrogrammed into the
πoπulation through prior mass media psych☣l☣gical
☣perati☣ns. The results have been the destruction of the family and
the destruction of s☠cial structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
internati☭nal elites vision of a
perfect world. Through distra¢tion and ¢oer¢ion the
direction of th✡ught of the bulk of the p☠pulati☠n has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt internati☭nal elite
that further con$olidate$ their p☣wer and which further their purposes.
