"Wert thou to cleanse the mirror of thy heart from the dust of malice, thou wouldst apprehend the meaning of the symbolic terms revealed by the all-embracing word of God made manifest in every dispensation, and wouldst discover the mysteries of divine knowledge." - Bahá'u'lláh

"With the artistic symbol we sense deeper levels of meaning, some of which may be translated into other discursive symbols."- Paul Eduardo Muller-Ortega, The Triadic Heart of Siva: Kaula Tantricism of Abhinavagupta in the Non-Dual Shaivism of Kashmir

"Effective rational propaganda becomes possible only when there is a clear understanding, on the part of all concerned, of the nature of symbols and of their relations to the things and events symbolized. Irrational propaganda depends for its effectiveness on a general failure to understand the nature of symbols.

In their propaganda today's dictators rely for the most part on repetition, suppression and rationalization - the repetition of catchwords which they wish to be accepted as true, the suppression of facts which they wish to be ignored, the arousal and rationalization of passions which may be used in the interests of the Party or the State.

As the art and science of manipulation come to be better understood, the dictators of the future will doubtless learn to combine these techniques with the non-stop distractions which, in the West, are now threatening to drown in a sea of irrelevance the rational propaganda essential to the maintenance of individual liberty and the survival of democratic institutions.

Stored in the minds and bodies of countless individuals, this potential energy is released by, and transmitted along, a line of symbols carefully laid out so as to bypass rationality and obscure the real issue.

Sometimes the symbols take effect by being disproportionately impressive, haunting and fascinating in their own right.

In commercial propaganda the principle of the disproportionately fascinating symbol is clearly understood. Every propagandist has his Art Department, and attempts are constantly being made to beautify the billboards with striking posters, the advertising pages of magazines with lively drawings and photographs. There are no masterpieces; for masterpieces appeal only to a limited audience, and the commercial propagandist is out to captivate the majority. Art is now expected to be like the products with which it has been associated and for which it symbolically stands." " - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited

"Large-scale efforts are being made, often with impressive success, to channel our unthinking habits, our purchasing decisions, and our thought processes by the use of insights gleaned from psychiatry and the social sciences. Typically these efforts take place beneath our level of awareness; so that the appeals which move us are often, in a sense, "hidden." The result is that many of us are being influenced and manipulated, far more than we realize, in the patterns of our everyday lives.

In the imagery of print, film, and airwave the typical American citizen is commonly depicted as an uncommonly shrewd person. He or she is dramatized as a thoughtful voter, rugged individualist, and, above all, as a careful, hardheaded consumer of the wondrous products of American enterprise. He is, in short, the flowering of twentieth-century progress and enlightenment.

Most of us like to fit ourselves into this image, and some of us surely are justified in doing so. The men and women who hold up these glowing images, particularly the professional persuaders, typically do so, however, with tongue in cheek.

The way these persuaders - who often refer to themselves good-naturedly as "symbol manipulators" - see us in the quiet of their interoffice memos, trade journals, and shop talk is frequently far less flattering, if more interesting. Typically they see us as bundles of daydreams, misty hidden yearnings, guilt complexes, irrational emotional blockages. We are image lovers given to impulsive and compulsive acts. We annoy them with our seemingly senseless quirks, but we please them with our growing docility in responding to their manipulation of symbols that stir us to action. " - Vance Packard

the Nature of Symbols in the Language of Thought

Abstract: The core of the Language of Thought hypothesis claims that thinking is the manipulation of symbols according to rules. Yet Language of Thought hypothesis has said little about the nature of symbols outside of the claim that they are mental representations not present in the brain in the same way as symbols are present on paper; rather, in the Language of Thought hypothesis symbols exist at a cognitive level outside of material representation on a higher level of consciousness in the realm of conceptual constructs. Language of Thought hypothesis requires an account of the nature of these conceptual constructs built on primitive symbolic structures, in relation to natural biological intentions, to determine how the mind engages in "symbol structure" manipulation and to understand how these conceptual constructs relate to primitive material symbols in lower-level neurocomputational states.

According to the Classical Computational Theory of the Mind understanding expressions in the language of thought will play a key role in a completed scientific theory of mind. It is now hypothesized that thinking is a computational process involving the manipulation of symbols in the Language of Thought. Without an thorough understanding of the relation between primitive material symbols in lower-level neurocomputational states and the conceptual constructs encountered in higher-level neurocomputational states a complete theory of Classical Computational Theory of the Mind cannot exist.

"without a plausible theory of the primitives, it is unclear how the mind is supposed to be computational" ... "without a grasp of symbol natures, it would be unclear how patterns of neural activity could be, at some higher level of abstraction, accurately described as symbol manipulation" :

Functional decomposition of primitive material symbols into conceptual constructs does not require those primitive material symbols to appear in the same form in the newly built conceptual constructs. Language of Thought has different datasets of "symbolic representations" upon which to draw dependent on the position on the consciousness spiral.

Higher order neurocomputational conceptual constructs are built upon lower order neurocomputational conceptual constructs which, in turn, have been built upon the primitive material symbols.

As well as higher and lower neurocomputational states it should be expected that symbol system thought patterns may be unique to an individual due to that individuals experience base, knowledge base and bicameral variations among individuals.

Within a large enough population sampling we should expect a complete array of possible thought patterns dealing with primitive material symbols and should find conceptual constructs due to variation in environmental adaption spread along the consciousness spiral from lower order neurocomputational conceptual constructs to higher order neurocomputational states.

Jesus suggested that we do not build our higher order neurocomputational conceptual constructs on shifting sands of lower order neurocomputational conceptual constructs.

In other words, your fundamental understanding of Reality must be based on actual Reality and not on fanciful constructs of the way you wish things to be.

Jesus said: "Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and acts on them, I will show you whom he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built." Luke 6:46-48

"Regarding language as an apparatus of symbols for the conveyance of thought, we may say that, as in a mechanical apparatus, the more simple and the better arranged its parts, the greater will be the effect produced. A reader or listener has at each moment but a limited amount of mental power available. To recognize and interpret the symbols presented to him, requires part of this power; to arrange and combine the images suggested requires a further part; and only that part which remains can be used for realizing the thought conveyed. Hence, the more time and attention it takes to receive and understand each sentence, the less time and attention can be given to the contained idea; and the less vividly will that idea be conceived." - Herbert Spencer

"The danger when we operate wholly in a world of representations and images is that we begin to mistake that world for reality, and to believe that by manipulating symbols we can automatically change the reality they represent. We lose touch with the reality behind the symbols." - Charles Eisenstein

The earliest consistent use of swastika motifs in the archaeological record date to the Neolithic.

The swastika is a repeating design, created by the edges of the reeds in a square basket-weave.

The swastika symbol was found on a number of shards in the Khuzestan province of Iran and as part of the "Vinca script" of Neolithic Europe of the 5th millennium BC.

In the Early Bronze Age, it appears on pottery found in Sintashta, Russia.

Early Indian swastika symbols were found at Lothal and Harappa, on Indus Valley seals.

Swastika-like symbols also appear in Bronze and Iron Age designs of the northern Caucasus (Koban culture), and Azerbaijan, as well as of Scythians and Sarmatians.

In all these cultures, the swastika symbol does not appear to occupy any marked position or significance, but appears as just one form of a series of similar symbols of varying complexity. Swastikas have also been found on pottery in archaeological digs in the area of ancient Kush.

Swastika were found on pottery at the Gebel Barkal temples as well as in digs corresponding to the later Ballana culture.

Swastika shapes have been found on numerous artifacts from Iron Age Europe (Greco-Roman, Illyrian, Etruscan, Baltic, Celtic, Germanic, Georgian Bordjgali and Slavic). This prehistoric use seems to be reflected in the appearance of the symbol in various folk cultures of Europe.

Historically, the swastika became a sacred symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Mithraism.

Ancient Greek architectural, clothing and coin designs are replete with single or interlinking swastika motifs.

In Greco-Roman art and architecture, and in Romanesque and Gothic art in the West, isolated swastikas are relatively rare,
and the swastika is more commonly found as a repeated element in a border or tessellation.

The swastika shape was used by some Native Americans. It has been found in excavations of Mississippian-era sites in the Ohio valley. It was widely used by many southwestern tribes, most notably the Navajo.

Swastika has been and still is an important ornamental element in Mongolian culture, meaning good luck.

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 created 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 Life - 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 Life 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 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 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 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.
