Hemingway survived through anthrax,

two plane crashes (on consecutive
days), a ruptured kidney,
a ruptured spleen, a
ruptured liver, a
crushed vertebra and a
fractured skull - more than
once (no wonder he had headaches).
Ernest Hemingway hung out in Paris
with F Scott Fitzgerald, TS
Eliot, Ezra Pound, EE
Cummings, John Steinbeck, William Faulkner,
Miller, Aldous Huxley,
James Joyce, Dashiell Hammett, Virginia Woolf,
JRR Tolkien - they were given
the title of the 'Lost Generation' due to WWI.
Ezra Pound was a mentor
during this period.
Ernest Hemingway was married four times.
Ernest Hemingway's book The Old Man and the Sea published in

new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The

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.
