Failure as a Way of Life

Do not be discouraged by 'failure'.

Discouragement is a trick of the Ego.

Ego searches for perfection that does not exist.

Leave perfection to God.

"The visceral experience of failure has been edited out

of the career trajectories of the rationally dissociated.

Those who end up making big decisions affecting all of us

don't seem to have much sense of their own fallibility."

Matthew B. Crawford

Failure can knock self-worth surprisingly early

Fail is defined as:

judged unacceptable

fall short of expectations

perform ineffectively or inadequately

disappoint, prove undependable, abandon or forsake

decline in strength resulting from excessive strain; made otherwise useless

The ultimate taboo - failure!

Hero worship is embedded early.

Americans still revere the images of the lone cowboy, riding off into the sunset in search of his destiny.

"Wanting experience, the whole universe, is but one vast scene of error.

Return to Nature, consult her laws, call practical knowledge to aid.

For want of practical knowledge men form imperfect ideas of the combinations of matter and the energies from which it springs.

Ignorant of Nature, he has mistaken her laws; he has not contemplated the necessary routine marked out." - Paul-Henri Thiry, Baron d'Holbach

Error has adaptive value. This may not be immediately apparent.

To err there must first be an attempt. Nothing attempted = no error.

Suppose we dislike having blood drained by a mosquito.

We attempt to find a solution to the problem of the mosquito draining blood.
Unknown to Othmar Zeidler he solved this problem when synthesizing DDT.

Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane kills the mosquito - dead.

The application of the scientific method and cost-benifit accounting suggests we kill all the mosquitoes so we embark open a Global Malaria Eradication Program which the World Health Organization did in 1955.

The application of the scientific method and cost-benifit accounting breaks reality into unreleated segments and variables are invariably overlooked.

DDT still damaging ecosystems 50 years after being sprayed

Errors in human judgement may take 50 years to appear in ecosystems.

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 mass 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.
