"One important characteristic of a body of knowledge is that it is conveyed through a rather specialized language, by which we mean that words are used in certain special senses and that certain concepts and categories are treated as fundamental to an understanding of the subject. This aspect of a body of knowledge is its language or vocabulary. To a large extent, any specialized language represents an artificial creation because it is self-consciously constructed to express meanings and definitions as precisely as possible." - Sheldon S. Wolin, Politics and Vision

Schools of Thought use shaping principles to frame fragments of reality.

From these fragments models are built of techniques for survival.



Trivium means "the place where three roads meet".

The subjects of the trivium are the foundation for the quadrivium, the upper division of the medieval education in the liberal arts, which comprised arithmetic (number), geometry (number in space), music (number in time), and astronomy (number in space and time).

Educationally, the trivium and the quadrivium imparted to the student the seven liberal arts of classical antiquity.

Grammar teaches the mechanics of language to the student.

This is the step where the student "comes to terms," defining the objects and information perceived by the five senses.

Hence, the Law of Identity: a tree is a tree, and not a cat.

Logic (also dialectic) is the "mechanics" of thought and of analysis:

process of identifying fallacious arguments and statements by systematically removing contradictions, thus producing trusted knowledge.

Rhetoric is the application of language in order to instruct and to persuade the listener and the reader.

Knowledge (grammar), understood, (logic) transmitted as wisdom (rhetoric).


The quadrivium consists of arithmetic, geometry, music and astronomy.

These stand on the trivium, consisting of grammar, logic and rhetoric.

A quadrivium plinth is required for the study of philosophy and theology.

In the liberal arts as curriculum in universities the quadrivium is typically considered to be the study of number and its relationship to space or time.

Theories are said to be commensurable if they can be discussed using a shared nomenclature revealing a recognizable conceptual structure that allows direct comparison of foundational elements.

Theories are incommensurable if they are embedded in starkly contrasting conceptual frameworks whose symbolic languages do not overlap sufficiently to permit a direct comparison of foundational elements.

Incommensurability results when individuals "talk past each other" and comparison becomes muddled by confusion about context and labels.

Theories are speculative conjectures using abstract reasoning.

Theories require a basic philosophical understanding of phenomena.

Theories involve rational assumptions based on limited knowledge.

Shaping principles define comprehension and methods of analysis.

Sets of theorems constitute systemically unifying perspectives.

conceptual framing


Chinese charater for concept

Concepts are tangible mental images formed in the mind.

Concept and perception are entwined like vines enwrapping each other.

The process of conceptualization is an activity of interpreting perceptions.

Conceptualization is a cognitive process using modes of consciousness to frame something incomprehensible making it understandable.

Concepts are inferred or derived through induction or deduction.

Every concept rests on a foundation of configurations of relationships.

Taken together conceptual images constitute an intelligible world.

There are two basic kinds of concepts = theoretical and empirical.

Empirical concepts relate to tangible activities of the sensory domain.

Theoretical concepts use abstraction to make the mystifying comprehensible.

A theoretical concept is an abstraction.

To abstract means to draw or derive from.

Abstraction has no concrete tangible existence in and of itself.

Theoretical concepts work in tandem with empirical concepts.

A concept is mental model built in order to grasp something intangible.

The theoretical concept of patriotism stirs emotional implants deep in the subconscious playing back images and symbols of tangible activities.

You can be patriotic, but you cannot see, touch, or taste patriotism.

Terrorist supression involves eyes and ears and boots on the ground.

Sporting events inculcate a sense of patriotism.

If you see something say something.

Those sincerely committed to self-knowledge, in all its complexity, refuse to be manipulated by the deceitful patriotic propaganda and religious rhetoric.

Theoretical concepts have the potential to deeply influence subconscious understanding of reality without conscious awareness.

Delusions of grandeur use magical rhetoric to artificially program the gullible human subconscous into believing Hiroshima was necessary.

Semi-Charmed Life

Axiomatic concepts, fundamental precepts, are implicit in every perception as they are the foundation of all other concepts.

Axiomatic concepts include: existence, identity, consciousness.

To perceive a thing is to perceive that it exists.

To perceive a thing is to perceive that it is something.

To perceive a thing is to perceive that one is conscious.

Axiomatic concepts cannot be defined in terms of other concepts as foundational concepts are logically prior to all other concepts.

No proof can be offered for axiomatic concepts, nor is any needed:

it is self-contradictory to deny them, for they must be accepted and used in every such denial as they are self-evident.

unique library index

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 mass 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.
