A century ago, mescaline
was the only chemical substance known to science that today would unequivocally
be called a psychedelic.

a day that will remain
blazingly vivid in my memory, and one which
unquestionably confirmed the
entire direction of my life." - Sasha
Sasha, deeply intrigued by
how a chemical could have such profound effects on thoughts, feelings and
perceptions, began to study these biomolecular effects.
"Dr. Shulgin had
something of a peekaboo relationship
with the authorities.
He had a strong relationship with the Drug
Enforcement Administration; Bob Sager, formerly head of the agencys
Western Laboratory, a close friend.
Dr. Shulgin often advised drug
agents, served as an expert witness in drug trials, wrote a reference work on
controlled substances used by law enforcement and for many years was licensed
by the DEA to do research on Schedule I drugs, those identified as having no
clearly defined medical use and a high potential for abuse." - Bruce Weber,

withdrawal of his passion for it.
the paranoiac builds it again, not
more splendid, it is true, but at least so that
he can once more live in
it up by the work of his delusions.
The delusional formation,
which we take to be the pathological product, is in reality an attempt at
recovery, a process of reconstruction.
I remember having twice
been in danger of my life, and
each time the awareness of the
danger occurred to me quite suddenly.
On both occasions I felt
"this was the end," and while otherwise my inner language proceeded with only
indistinct sound images and slight lip movements, in these situations of danger
I heard the words as if somebody
was shouting them into my ear, and at the same time I saw them as if they were
printed on a piece of paper floating in the air."

compelled to action on the first trip through the looking glass
i could not identify the compeller but
it must have been the Holy

i will give you a personal account of one instant
i took a handful of 8d box nails and set down on the sidewalk
i felt for magnetic field lines, identified them and started
aligning the nails
i started with four nails and positioned them
in a compass pattern aligned with the magnetic lines
rolled the nail toward the position in which it would be perfectly aligned with
the magnetic grid but released it slightly before it would hit the mark
i ended up with perfectly aligned radial pattern with eight rays
four nails deep, perfectly positioned in the center of a sidewalk square
8 radial arms at the compass directions and at the midpoint
between compass directions, 4 nails deep
it took about a minute
my intent was to get the
nails to align in a perfectly symmetrical pattern and i used the
magnetic field lines of
the Earth to accomplish the task which i could actually feel with my hands

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.
