To create dichotomy
bipartition a whole into two subsets.
Everything must belong to one
subset and nothing can belong simultaneously to both subsets.
subsets thus formed are complements.
the bipartitions are opposites if there exists a proposition that is true in
one subset and not the other.
Hot and cold. Fire and ice. Wet and dry.
Ocean and desert.
Treating continuous variables or multicategorical
variables as binary variables is called dichotomization. (calculus)
discretization error inherent in dichotomization is temporarily ignored for
modeling purposes and, hopefully, not forgotten as it so often is in
In ontological dualism, the world is divided into
two overarching categories, creating a dichotomization of reality.
This is easily seen in Taosim concept of
Yin and Yang as well as in
concept of the battle of Ahura
Mazda and Angra
Mainyu which was carried over into Christianity.
springing from ontological dualism, is the belief of the great complement of or
conflict between the
benevolent and the malevolent.
Gemeinschaft vs Gesellschaft
dichotomyGemeinschaft is commonly translated
as "community"and exemplified historically by a family or
a village in a pre-modern rural
Gesellschaft is commonly
translated as "larger social grouping" and was exemplified historically by a
joint-stock incorporation or a
sovereign state in the 20th century.
gesellschaft has swallowed many a sovereign state.
Competing needs of
both social groups, to which every individual belongs at one time or another,
creates a dichtomy of contentious social ties:
Gemeinschaft - belonging
to personal social interactions, personal roles, informal values, and actual
beliefs based on close personal interactions.
Gesellschaft - belonging
to indirect social interactions, impersonal roles, formal values, and feigned
beliefs based on mythology of the current social culture.
In a social
culture regulated by gemeinschaft there is seldom a need for police or
coercive social control due to
the direct sense of loyalty the individual
feels for the group.
Ferdinand Tönnies, who originally defined
this social dichotomy, saw the family as the most perfect expression of
Ferdinand Tönnies did believe that gemeinschaft
could be based on shared place or shared belief as well as kinship, and he
included globally dispersed religious
communities as possible examples of gemeinschaft.
Gesellschaft describes the associations
in MICE culture.
Individual self-interest takes precedence over
mutual needs of MICE culture.
Gesellschaft is maintained by individuals
acting in their own self-interest.
Monsanto is a good
example of gesellschaft: the workers, managers, and owners have very little in
terms of shared orientations or beliefs, they may even despise the product they
are making, but it is in their self-interest to continue to produce

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
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 central banking
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 cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a
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.
