The Wizard


"When such doctrines as these were openly aired by the highest authority in the realm, and who, in aired them, flattered, but did not force the public opinion, it is not surprising that the sad delusion should have increased and multiplied, until the race of wizards and witches replenished this good Earth." - Charles MacKay

The word wizard may come from the Persian word Wazir.

Wazirs belonged to the ruling classes of the civizations of Central Asia.

Wazirs were also called Tajik, men of the pen or wise men.

The term wizard is a bastard child of Wazir brought to the West by the knights of the First Crudsade and was typically bestowed upon men of learning, the Alchemists.

Life was forged in the valleys.

It blew up onto the hills on the old terrors, the old lusts.

You must walk up the hills so you can ride down.

We cannot choose freedom established on a hierarchy of

degrees of freedom, on a caste system of equality.

To be free is not to claim freedom, but to practice it.

"Our tragedy today is a general and universal physical fear.

There are no longer problems of the spirit.

There is only the question: When will I be blown up?

The young man or woman writing today has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat.

He must learn them again.

He must teach himself that the basest of all things is to be afraid.

Teaching himself to leave no room in his workshop for anything but the old verities and truths of the heart, the universal truths lacking which any story is ephemeral and doomed - honor and pity and pride and love and sacrifice.

Until he does so, he labors under a curse.

He writes not of compassion but of lust, of defeats in which nobody loses anything of value, of victories without hope, worst, without compassion.

His griefs grieve on no universal bones, leaving no scars.

He writes not of the heart but of the glands." - William Faulkner

John Steinbeck

Ten Year Apocalypse that Nearly Destroyed Midwestern America

There is a principle which is a bar against all

This I believe:

the free, exploring mind of the individual
is the most valuable thing on Earth

And this I would fight for:

freedom of the mind to take
any direction it wishes, undirected.

And this I must fight against:

any idea, religion, or government
which limits or destroys the individual

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.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
