deviant thought patterns

Availability heuristic - estimating what is more likely by what is more available in memory, which is biased toward vivid, unusual, or emotionally charged examples

Cryptomnesia - a form of misattribution where a memory is mistaken for imagination, occurs when memories seem to impossible to be true

Hyperbolic discounting - the tendency for people to have a stronger preference for more immediate payoffs relative to later payoffs, where the tendency increases the closer to the present both payoffs are

Availability cascade - a self-reinforcing process in which a collective belief gains more and more plausibility through its increasing repetition in public discourse (or "repeat something long enough and it will become true")

Disregard of regression toward the mean - the tendency to expect extreme performance to continue

Divestiture aversion - valuing a good or service at more than market value after property rights to the good or service have been established

Fundamental attribution error - the tendency for people to over-emphasize personality-based explanations for behaviors observed in others while under-emphasizing the role and power of situational influences on the same behavior

Brain Cells Do Keep Growing

Herd instinct - the common tendency to jump on the bandwagon by adopting the opinions and following the behaviors of the majority to feel safer and to avoid conflict

Just-World/God phenomenon - the tendency for people to believe that the world or God is "just" and therefore people "get what they deserve"

Need for closure - the need to have an answer and to escape the feeling of doubt and uncertainty.

Neglect of probability - the tendency to completely disregard probability when making a decision under uncertainty

Not Invented Here - overlooking a viable solution that already exists

Pareidolia - vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) are perceived as significant, e.g., hearing hidden messages on records played in reverse or thinking the speaker on the television is talking to you personally

Post-purchase rationalization - the tendency to persuade oneself through rational argument that a purchase was a good value

Reactance - the urge to do the opposite of what someone wants you to do out of a need to resist a perceived attempt to constrain your freedom of choice

Reminiscence bump - the effect that people tend to recall more personal events from adolescence and early adulthood than from other lifetime periods, although vaguely

Rosy retrospection - rating past events more positively in retrospect

Selective perception - the tendency for expectations to affect perception

Self-fulfilling prophecy - the tendency to engage in behavior that elicit results which confirms belief

Semmelweis reflex - rejecting evidence that contradicts an established, generally accepted paradigm

Subjective validation - perception that something is true if a subject's belief demands it to be true, also assigns perceived connections between coincidences

Suggestibility - a form of misattribution where ideas suggested by a questioner are mistaken for memory

System justification - the tendency to defend and bolster the status quo

Ultimate attribution error - assigning an internal attribution to an entire group instead of each individual within the group

Wishful thinking - the formation of beliefs and the making of decisions according to what is pleasing to imagine instead of by appeal to evidence

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 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.
