Within the community
mystics, the Essenes, were
attempting to reformulate their religion to be universally inclusive.
The Essenes penned the Dead Sea
To be universally inclusive elements of the Mystery of
Serapis were included.
Philo, described two branches of
a single Gnostic Mystery school
- the Essenes, of Hebrew ethnicity, and the
Therapeutae, of Greek
The Essenes were in
contention with the remnants
of the Hasmonean dynasty high priest cult, the Sadducees, and with
the Pharisees who now held the
religious authority of the Hebrews.
Philo, the Hebrew Gnostic, was
known as "the Pythagorean."
Philo derived the name Therapeutae/Therapeutides from the related
adjective therapeutikos meaning of attending to heal, or treating in a
spiritual or medical sense.
Mysteries formulated principles that influenced the thought of
Aristotle and contributed to
the development of mathematics and Western rational philosophy.
The Hebrew historian,
Josephus, tells us that
the Essenes were comparable to the Pythagoreans.
The bulk of the mystic
tradition that originating with Pythagoras belongs to gnostic mystical wisdom
rather than to scientific scholarship but using that approach did lead to the
theory of the functional significance of numbers in the objective world and in
music, as well as the Pythagorean theorem for right triangles.
Philo used Stoic philosophical allegory and
Pharisaic exegesis in attempt
to fuse and harmonize Greek philosophy with Hebrew philosophy.

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

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 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."
