All who listen to my instructions and follow them are wise, like a man who builds his house on solid rock.

When the rain comes in torrents, when the floods rise, when the storm winds beat against it and when the earth shakes, it will not collapse, for it is built on solid rock.

But those who hear my instructions and ignore them are foolish, like a man who builds his house on shifting sand.

For when the rains and floods come, and storm winds beat against his house, it will fall with a mighty crash.

The Limits to Growth

Collapse Awareness: Tragic Consciousness

When Systems Crumble: Looking Beyond Global Capitalism

The World Shadow Government Destroys its Own Home Planet?

The global industrial economy has outgrown
the capacity of the Earth to support it.

Ecosytem collapse is accelerating.

No culture, however technologically advanced,
can survive the collapse of environmental systems.

"Can we just realize that there are limits to growth?" - David Marquez

"Imagine what happens to a culture when it becomes based on the idea of transcending limits and enshrines that as the purpose of global civilization.

Predictably it will live in the grip of the technological imperative.

Imagine then what happens to a culture when it actually develops the means to transcend limits, making it possible and therefore right to destroy custom and community, to create new rules of employment and obligation, to magnify production and consumption, to impose new means and ways of work, and to control or ignore the central forces of nature.

It would no doubt exist for quite a long time, powerful and expansionary and prideful, before it had to face up to the truths that it was founded on illusions and that there are real limits in an ordered world, social and economic as well as natural, that ought not be transgressed, limits more important than their conquest." - Kirkpatrick Sale

Global consumer culture discharges greenhouse gases into the atmosphere much faster than the biosphere can adequately organically recycle them.

The incapacity to satisfy global consumer culture is apparent in:

shrinking forests and eroding soils;

crop-withering heat waves;

villages abandoned because of invading sand dunes;

ocean dead zones;

dying coral reefs;

collapsing fisheries;

expanding deserts;

deteriorating rangelands;

melting glaciers;

disappearing species;

aquifers pumped dry and fracked into toxicity.

Harvests of less than 10% of historic highs is considered collapse in fishing.

1950 Six commercially harvested seafood species worldwide collapsed.

2003 2,200 species - 29% of all commercially fished species collapsed.

Resources accumulated over eons are being consumed in a single lifespan.

Global consumer culture notes environmental problems only when ecosystems crash and commodity prices skyrocket, leaving no time to adjust.

Once a natural threshold is crossed there is no time to modify explotation.

We see this time and again as species go extinct.

When agriculture began, humans, their livestock, and pets accounted for less than 0.1% of the total weight of all vertebrates on the land and in the air.

1997 Fossil fuel consumption equals the energy in 7.1 trillion kilograms of carbon in plant matter.

2005 Paul MacCready estimates humans, their livestock, and pets account for 98% of the total vertebrate biomass, leaving only 2% in the wild.

98 tons of prehistoric plant material is required to produce a gallon of gas.

Land plants today contain 31.6 trillion kilograms of carbon above ground.

"The amount of plants that went into the fossil fuels burned since the global industrial Revolution began in 1751 is equal to all the plants grown on Earth over 13,300 years.

Fossil fuels developed from ancient deposits of organic material, and can be thought of as a vast store of solar energy. It took an incredible amount of plant matter to generate the fossil fuels we are using today." - Jeff Dukes

Many earlier civilizations found themselves in environmental trouble as Jared Diamond notes in Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed.

Some were able to change course and avoid decline - Sumerians, Mayans, Easter Islanders - were not able to make the needed adjustments in time.

We know from earlier civilizations that the lead indicators of economic decline were environmental and not due to the churning of derivatives.

The trees went first, then the civilization itself.

Nature has many thresholds that we discover only when it is too late.

To archeologists, the sequence is all too familiar.

The Earth is in what ecologists call an "overshoot-and-collapse" mode.

Overshoot leads sometimes to decline and sometimes to a complete collapse.

1944  US Coast Guard introduces 29 reindeer on remote St. Matthew Island in the Bering Sea to serve as the backup food for 19 stationed men.

World War II ends, the base is closed and the men leave the island.

1957  US Fish and Wildlife Service biologist David Kline visits St. Matthew.

He discovers a thriving population of 1,350 reindeer feeding on a 4" thick mat of lichen that covers the 332-square-kilometer (128-square-mile) island.

In the absence of any predators, the population exploded.

1963 A population of 6,000 reindeer on the island.

1966  St. Matthew Island is strewn with reindeer skeletons and not much lichen.

42 reindeer survive: 41 females and 1 unhealthy male.

There are no fawns.

1980 The remaining reindeer have died off and there is no lichen.

In decline, a remnant of the population or economic activity survives in a resource-depleted environment for a period of time.

As the fish resource base of Easter Island in the South Pacific deteriorated its population declined from a peak of 20,000 to fewer than 4,000.

In contrast, the 500-year-old Norse settlement in Greenland collapsed during the 1400s, disappearing entirely in the face of environmental adversity.

2005   42 countries out of 230 have population that are stable or declining slightly in size as a result of falling birth rates.

Demographers are projecting population declines in African countries due to rising death rates, among them Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, and Swaziland.

2010 - 2015 Globally 20 countries experience population decline.

The Weight


He is a relentless observer.

He is always active and effective in the investigation of Nature.

He sees that all forms of Nature are interdependent and
arise out of each other, according to the laws of Creation.

In his every design a bit of Nature enters into building.

His perceptions (insight) science later verifies.

Intimacy with Nature is the great friendship.

He sees ideas as also manifest actions of Nature.

It is the poet in him that is the great quality in him.

The profound naturalness of his own being
is the essential condition of a great architect .

Expect from him a system of philosophy and ethics
which is a synthesis of society and civilization.

Architectural masterpiece animated in 3D

I believe in God, only I spell it NATURE.

Organic architecture is therefore the growth in space of an idea - a state of mind proceeding by the natural science of structure in the use of materials.

An appropriate art of FORM: form true to purpose.

In the art of building aesthetic construction approves and proves itself.

In an organic sense such a building is an entity of the human spirit.

A natural, human circumstance - possible only to the complete architect.

He is master of the Elements: earth, air, fire, light, and water.

Space, motion, and gravitation are his palette: the Sun his brush.

His concern is the heart of humanity.

He, of all men, must see into the 'life' of things.

Simplicity and repose are qualities that measure the true value of art.

Simplicity is not in itself an end. A wild flower is truly simple.

Organic architecture, once grasped, carries with it in its very nature the discipline of an ideal at a cost to self-interest and the established order.

By organic architecture I mean an architecture that develops from within outward harmony with the conditions of its being.

A building grown from its site; shaped to harmonize with surroundings.

Bring out the nature of materials, let nature intimately into design.

Reveal the nature of the wood, plaster, brick or stone in your designs.

Nothing is more difficult to achieve than the integral simplicity of organic nature, amid the tangled confusions of the innumerable relics of form.

The 'life' in the thing is that quality which makes it perfectly natural.

Therefore we will loyally love, honestly work and enthusiastically seek in all thing the one thing of value - Life.

thing you own end up owning you

Many wealthy people are little more than janitors of their possessions.

According to our strength of character and our clarity of vision, we will endure, we will succeed, we will have contributed something to make life where we were and as we lived it better, brighter, and more beautiful.

This website defines a new perspective with which to en❡a❡e Яeality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern pr☠paganda from Яeality and that this has been done purposefully by an internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reaλity on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religi☯us practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religi⚛us ide⚛l⚛gy. This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed the Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery re☦igion based on reaso🐍 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 pers∞nal relati∞n with Ć∞n and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the hope of curing the spiritual c✡rrupti✡n that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us beliefs in America is considered a "hate ˘rime."

This web site in no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to control the human race. The internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel already controls the world economic system, c☸rp☸rate media w☸rldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the coλλapse of moraλs, the eg● w●rship and the destruction of gl☭bal ec☭systems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by press☟ng em☠ti☠nal butt☠ns which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior mass media psych☣l☣gical ☣perati☣ns. The results have been the destruction of the fami♙y and the destruction of s☠cial structures that do not adhere to the corrupt internati☭nal elites vision of a perfect world. Through distra˘tion and ˘oer˘ion the dir⇼ction of th✡ught of the bulk of the p☠pulati☠n has been direc⇶ed ⇶oward s↺luti↻ns proposed by the corrupt internati☭nal elite that further con$olidate$ their p☣wer and which further their purposes.
