Making Art Reduces Stress Hormones

Creative people are just high functioning schizophrenics

"People desire objects that are real and personal."

Randy Merrel

"Indignity is hard to avoid when our whole economy revolves around the creation and fulfillment of phony needs. It is an indignity to make anything less than an art out of your work." - Charles Eisenstein

"Keep pace with the Soul of the Earth, embrace as a friend the seasons.

Step into the procession of life marching towards the infinite.

When you pioneer catalysis the whispering of the hours turns to music.

Which of you would be silent when all else sings together in unison?

Always you have been told that work is a curse and labor a misfortune.

To fulfill the Dream assigned when the Dream was Born is truly loving life.

There are those who see birth as an affliction and the flesh a curse,

I answer that naught but the sweat of your brow shall wash that away.

You have been told by Reptilian followers of Mammon life is darkness.

I say that life is indeed darkness except when there is desire to live.

Yet all desire to live is blind unless there is adequate knowledge;

all academic knowledge worthless until it can be properly applied.

Weave wholecloth with logic threads drawn from your heart.

Build an abode with passion and rest soundly in that dwelling.

Sowing seeds with tenderness reaps a harvest with joy.

It is to charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit.

He alone is great who turns the voice of the wind into a song made sweeter.

-adapted from Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

Creativity is a remix

Everything is a Remix Remastered

"I do muscular work because of have muscles; and if I don't use my muscles I shall be a bad tempered sitting-addict. Westerners are mostly sitting-addicts.

From the tycoon to the typist, from the logical positivist to the positive thinker, Westerners spend nine tenths of their time on foam rubber.

Spongy seats for spongy bottoms." - Vijaya, Island, Aldous Huxley

"Without the opportunity to learn through the hands, the world remains abstract and distant, and the passions for learning will not be engaged.

A gifted young person who chooses to become a mechanic rather than to accumulate academic credentials is seen as eccentric, if not self-destructive." - Matthew B. Crawford

"People are retreating from whirlwinds – the whirlwinds of production demands and the whirlwinds of an unstable economy." - Barry Glassner, USC

Craftsmanship offers economic stability, personal and emotional satisfaction.

Craftsmen feel an urgency to build aesthetically pleasing objects of value.

Craftsman are dedicated to providing the highest quality product.

Craftswomen take the time to carefully execute each and every process .

The life style a craftswoman or craftsman rewards the individual with a feeling of contentment in living a meaningful hands-on existence.

"More individuals are going back to work with their hands than ever before. There has been a growing renaissance in the crafts." - Sam Maloof

It is unfortunate that craftsmanship has been denigrated by the marketers.

"Today our lifestyle is supported by our income, instead of our income having to stay up with our lifestyle. A one individual business is really a life form." - Ann Reiss

A craftsman takes pride in work whereas the laboror is there for his paycheck and may never even touch the manufactured object.

A craftsman works on the human scale.

"Moments of elation are counterbalanced with failures.

Both vividly taking place right before your eyes.

With immediate high stakes manual trades elicit heedful absorption in work.

They are punctuated by moments of pleasure that take place against a darker backdrop: a keen awareness of catastrophe as an always-present possibility.

The core experience is one of individual responsibility.

An ethic of attention develops in the trades - an enlightened self-interest.

The good life comes in a variety of forms" - Matthew B. Crawford

creative instincts

Acting territorial kills creative feedback

"The breakdown of social structures occurs when creative

individuals are forbidden the excercise of creative power."

Arnold Toynbee

"Creativity is a matter of illusion.

We take raw materials and fashion something that, no matter how faithful to our experience, is a mechanism, an invention, an elaborate shadow play.

The miracle is we can believe it at all; a mechanism can stir us into trusting something, on the most basic level, not actually there." - David L. Ulin

To sing and play an instrument, to dance, to draw, to create beautifully crafted hand made 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 with the global industrial revolution, which also forged the means to replace beautifully crafted hand made objects with mass-produced cheap substitutes.

But all that was in the past. All we need now is a Lab on a Chip.

This website defines a new perspective 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 ra☨ional gnos☨ic mys☨ery 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 through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the cu☮ing the spi☮itual co☮☮uption 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 condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the vi☬lence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to control the human race. The internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel already controls the world economic system, c☸rp☸rate media w☸rldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the coλλapse of moraλs, the eg● w●rship and the destruction of gl☭bal ec☭systems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by press☟ng em☠ti☠nal butt☠ns which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior c✡rp✡rate media psych☣l☣gical ☣perati☣ns. The results have been the destruction of the fami♙y 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 dir⇼ction of th✡ught of the bulk of the p☠pulati☠n has been direc⇶ed ⇶oward s↺luti↻ns proposed by the corrupt internati☭nal elite that further con$olidate$ their p☣wer and which further their purposes.
