Clockwork Universe

The Deceptive Watchman: How Our Brains Twist Time

"The clock, not the steam engine,
is the key machine of the global industrial age."

Lewis Mumford

The 17th century was a time of intense religious feeling, and nowhere was that feeling more intense than in Great Britain.

There a devout young man, Isaac Newton, was finally to discover the way to a new synthesis in which truth was revealed and God was preserved.

In the history of science, the clockwork universe compares the universe to a mechanical clock.

It continues ticking along, as a perfect machine, with its gears governed by the laws of physics, making every aspect of the machine predictable.

1687 Newton combines mechanics with the Copernican system through the use of calculus and pens Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica.

Newton introduces a new dimension to physics that applies equally well to terrestrial and celestial bodies.

Newton's analysis of forces justified Copernicus, Kepler, and Galileo.

Newton's three laws of motion and universal gravitation regulate the cosmos.

Newtonian physics supports the mechanistic view God created the Universe as a perfect machine requiring no further interference.

Philosophically this is the Newtonian world machine or Clockwork Universe.

These ideals were typified in the Deist writings of: the Frenchmen - Pierre-Simon Laplace, Jules Verne, Victor Hugo, Voltaire, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck and Maximilien Robespierre; the Englishmen - Thomas Paine, Anthony Ashley Cooper, 3rd Earl of Shaftesbury, Anthony Collins, and Charles Blount; the Scots - Adam Smith, James Watt; the Germans - Johann Adam Weishaupt, Carl Friedrich Gauss, Gottfried Leibniz, Moses Mendelssohn, Max Planck, Friedrich Schiller; the Americans - Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Lysander Spooner, Abraham Lincoln, Charles Sanders Peirce, Mark Twain, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Alva Edison.

Modern life freaks out the clock in your brain

Design implies some kind of predictability, properties of the whole that can be predicted from the properties of the parts.

Intelligent design cosmological theory suggests a material Creator, the Demiurge, molded and calibrated the initial conditions of the universe.

"I am suggesting a different conception of God not outside the universe but an inseparable property of the universe." - Charles Eisenstein

Supporters of the Newtonian world machine vote intelligent design policy.

"It is ironic that several of individuals who so staunchly and proudly touted their religious convictions in public would time and again lie to cover their tracks and disguise the real purpose behind the intelligent design policy.

Defendants' asserted secular purpose of improving science education is belied by the fact that most if not all of the board members who voted in favor of the biology curriculum change conceded that they still do not know, nor have they ever known, precisely what intelligent design is.

Leading proponents make a bedrock assumption which is utterly false.

intelligent design or is it?

Their presupposition is that evolutionary theory is antithetical to a belief in the existence of a supreme being and to religion in general.

Those who disagree will mark it the product of an activist judge.

If so, they will have erred as this is manifestly not an activist court.

Rather, this case came to us as the result of the activism of an ill informed faction on a school board, aided by a national 'public interest' law firm eager to find a constitutional test case on intelligent design, who in combination drove the board to adopt an imprudent and ultimately unconstitutional policy." - US District Judge John E. Jones III

Hatters tended to go mad from quicksilver used to make felt hats.

"Life is short and information endless:

nobody has time for everything."

Aldous Huxley

As gathering places grew in size and became the center of empire it became necessary to find ways to distribute resources among the people.

Rulers recognized that if they kept track of the resources dispersed they would know who to empower and who to disempower.

People began to number the years in Egypt, Mesopotamia, India, China, and Central America from the foundation of a dynasty introducing linearity to time and divorcing it from the cycles of Nature.

The artificial division of the day into hours (curiously, both the Babylonians and ancient Chinese used twelve) and the Hebrew invention of seven-day weeks only deepened this divorce, which has culminated in the replacement of circular clocks with digital clocks, obliterating the last remaining link between measured time and the cyclical processes of Nature.

The purpose of clocks is to coordinate human activity, not 'measure time.'

The ritual of smashing a clock represents a conceptual way of freeing the pysche from the enslavement of time measurement.

This web site is not a commercial web site and 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. 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 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 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.
