"In the scene of
the movie of Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451" the fireman Montag, played by
Oscar Werner, finds his wife, played by Julie Christie, studying her part in an
interactive soap opera to be aired on the walls of their living room.
"They mailed me my part this morning," she enthuses. "I
sent in some box tops. They
write the script with one part missing. When it comes time for the missing
lines, they all look at me out of the three walls and I say the lines."
That's an awful moment, sad and haunting, and in its edge of longing,
it evokes contemporary
culture'salienation, which has expanded exponentially since Ray Bradbury
examined it half a century ago.
What Ray Bradbury was hinting at is
the ever thinning boundary

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 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.
Religi☯us int☯lerance ☯ccurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religi☸us beliefs or persons due to their religi⚛us ide⚛l⚛gy. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed The Truth of the
Way of the Lumière Infinie - a ra☨ional gnos☨ic mys☨ery re☦igion 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 pers∞nal relati∞n with Æ∞n
through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the hope of curing the
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.
