Architectural masterpiece animated in 3D

I believe in God, only I spell it NATURE.

Organic architecture is therefore the growth in space of an idea - a state of mind proceeding by the natural science of structure in the use of materials to the splendid, appropriate art of FORM: form true to purpose.

Furthermore it is the art of building wherein aesthetic and construction not only approve but prove each other.

In organic sense such building is an entity of the human spirit, as that of any tree or flower is of the ground.

A natural, human circumstance - possible only to the complete architect.

He is master of the Elements: earth, air, fire, light, and water.

Space, motion, and gravitation are his palette: the Sun his brush.

His concern is the heart of humanity.

He, of all men, must see into the 'life' of things.

Simplicity and repose are qualities that measure the true value of any work of art.

Simplicity is not in itself an end nor is it a matter of the side of a barn but rather an entity with a graceful beauty in its integrity from which discord, and all that is meaningless, has been eliminated.

A wild flower is truly simple.

I know that the sense of an organic architecture, once grasped, carries with it in its very nature the discipline of an ideal at whatever cost to self-interest or the established order.

By organic architecture I mean an architecture that develops from within outward in harmony with the conditions of its being.

A building should appear to grow easily from its site and be shaped to harmonize with its surroundings if Nature is manifest there, and if not try to make it as quiet, substantial and organic as She would have been were the opportunity Hers.

Bring out the nature of materials, let their nature intimately into your design.

Reveal the nature of the wood, plaster, brick or stone in your designs; they are all by nature friendly and beautiful.

To achieve success in any degree means a serious devotion to the "underneath" in an attempt to grasp the nature of building a beautiful building beautifully, as organically true in itself, to itself and to its purpose, as any tree or flower.

Nothing is more difficult to achieve than the integral simplicity of organic nature, amid the tangled confusions of the innumerable relics of form that encumber life for us.

The 'life' in the thing is that quality of it or in it which makes it perfectly natural - of course that means organic.

Therefore we will loyally compassion, honestly work and enthusiastically seek in all thing the one thing of value - Life.

thing you own end up owning you

Many wealthy people are little more than janitors of their possessions.

According to our strength of character and our clarity of vision, we will endure, we will succeed, we will have contributed something to make life where we were and as we lived it better, brighter, and more beautiful.

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.
