Illumination, the religion of the Ancient Order of the Illuminati, began with Pythagoras and is the world's only "Logos" religion, i.e. a rational religion founded on mathematics, science and philosophy. It has no connection with Mythos religions such as Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Illumination is the Grand Unified Theory of Everything, linking science, religion, psychology, philosophy and even the "paranormal". It does so via the only medium of truth and absolute knowledge: mathematics, which Pythagoras enigmatically declared to be the arche, the fundamental substance of existence. Whereas science is based on mathematical materialism, Illumination uses Leibnizian mathematical idealism. This is one of a series of books providing the ultimate answers to the nature of existence.

Mathematics possesses not only truth, but Supreme beauty – a beauty cold and austere, like that of a sculpture.

-- Bertrand Russell

All finite things reveal infinitude.

-- Theodore Roethke

Infinity is that dimension without end which the human mind cannot grasp.

-- Anonymous

Infinity converts the possible into the inevitable.

-- Norman Cousins

The infinite! No other question has ever so profoundly the spirit of man; no other idea has so fruitfully stimulated his intellect; yet no other concept stands in greater need of clarification than that of the infinite...

THIS IS ONE OF A SERIES OF BOOKS outlining the religion, politics and philosophy of the ancient and controversial secret society known as the Illuminati, of which the Greek polymath Pythagoras was the first official Grand Master. The society exists to this day and the author is a senior member, working under a pseudonym.

The Illuminati’s religion is the most highly developed expression of Gnosticism and is called Illumination (alternatively, Illuminism). Dedicated to the pursuit of enlightenment, it has many parallels with the Eastern religions of Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism. It rejects the Abrahamic religions of faith: Judaism, Christianity and Islam, considering these the work of the Demiurge

; an inferior, cruel and wicked deity who deludes himself that he is the True God, and who has inflicted endless horrors on humanity.

If you wish to judge for yourself how deranged the Demiurge is, you need only read the Old Testament, the story of the Demiurge’s involvement with his Chosen People

, the Hebrews. You may wonder why the God of All

entered into an exclusive and partisan Covenant with a tribe in the Middle East several thousand years ago, why he promised them a land (Canaan) that belonged to others, and why he then actively participated with them in a genocidal war against the Canaanites. Even more bizarrely, according to Christian theology, he then despatched all of those Hebrews, whom he had supported so fanatically, to Limbo – the edge of Hell – when they died. They couldn’t go to Heaven because they were indelibly marked by the Original Sin

of Adam and Eve. Only the atonement provided by the agonising death of God’s son

, Jesus Christ, could wipe the slate clean and allow the Hebrews to be released from Limbo. But there was a catch. Only those who accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour were eligible for Paradise.

Of course, the Chosen People of God

have almost entirely rejected Jesus Christ. Therefore, from the Christian perspective, nearly all of the Chosen People are now in hell proper. Don’t you find God’s behaviour distinctly odd? Indeed, unbelievable? Don’t alarm bells start ringing? Doesn’t the behaviour of this God sound rather more like what would be expected of Satan?

Remember that this same God

ordered Abraham to perform human sacrifice on his own son, Isaac. Abraham, rather than rejecting this monstrous command, rather than denouncing the creature that gave it as evil incarnate, agreed to butcher his own flesh and blood to demonstrate how slavishly and mindlessly obedient he was – the prototype of all psychopathic, fanatical believers

.

Does God’s command to Abraham sound like something that would ever pass the lips of the True God? We pity you if you think it does because you are surely a creature of the Demiurge and one of the legions of the damned. If, however, you doubt the credentials of the Abrahamic God, you may be receptive to the message of the Illuminati and our future-oriented, rational, scientific, mathematical and dialectical religion of light – *Illumination*.

WHEN PYTHAGORAS DECLARED THAT numbers were the *arche *– the fundamental stuff of the universe – he was announcing perhaps the greatest and most enigmatic insight in human history. There was no precedent for such a seemingly improbable assertion. Had humanity followed Pythagoras, we would now be *gods*. Instead, humanity chose to place its trust in people like Jesus Christ and the illiterate Mohammed and we have had to endure the religious Dark Ages of Abrahamism for 2,000 years, illuminated only by the Renaissance and the Enlightenment.

It’s simply impossible to separate numbers and mathematics from the fabric of existence. If you want to comprehend reality you must realize that mathematics doesn’t reflect reality; mathematics IS reality. *Ontology*, the study of existence, is ultimately the understanding that mathematics alone determines everything that can and cannot exist. Anything incompatible with mathematics is impossible. All the things in life that you think have nothing to do with mathematics – such as feelings and desires – are in fact nothing but mathematics. By the end of this book, we intend to have proved to you that mathematics is quite simply all there is. The great secret of the universe is that it is *living mathematics*. All that is real is mathematical and all that is mathematical is real.

One number above all encapsulates the true nature of existence: ZERO. Scientific materialists do not believe that zero is a thing

, an entity in the real universe. How could zero possibly have any reality, they say. It can’t be seen, it can’t be touched, it can’t be sensed, it can’t be detected – so it surely can’t be there. The philosophical position of materialism boils down to the simple assertion that zero is non-existent. Idealism, the opposite philosophical position, is, ultimately, the assertion that zero not only exists as a real entity but in fact entirely determines the rest of existence i.e. everything comes from zero (and zero of course is often called nothing

).

Big Bang theory is typically characterised as the universe exploding out of nothing

. But scientific materialism doesn’t know what nothing

is and can’t offer any definition of nothing

. It therefore magics the universe into existence like a magician pulling a rabbit from an empty hat, except it is pulling an entire universe out of *God knows what*.

Big Bang theory in the hands of idealists rather than materialists becomes something radically different. The universe does indeed spring from nothing, but this nothing has a very precise definition: it is the mathematical zero. Nothing is not just one zero, it’s an infinite number of them. Just to be crystal clear: existence is reducible to an infinite number of zeros which are actual, real, indivisible, indestructible, immortal entities. Leibniz, one of the greatest Grand Masters of the Illuminati and perhaps the most intelligent man in human history, called them monads (units

). He also gave them another name: SOULS. Do you *see*?

To create a straight line (a one-dimensional entity), you must joint two points by the shortest possible path. But what is a point

? It’s a zero-dimensional

entity, something devoid of dimensionality. To put it another way, a point – the basic unit of geometry from which all lines, curves, shapes and functions are constructed – is none other than ZERO. A point is not a hypothetical tool of abstract mathematics to help us understand reality. A point is a monad, a real entity in the real world. The only reason why mathematics perfectly models our world is that our world is MADE of mathematics. Specifically, the universe consists of an infinite number of points – *zeros *– all being joined up in a host of different ways determined by the inexorable, flawless, laws of mathematics.

All one, two and three-dimensional entities originate in zero-dimensional points. They couldn’t exist if dimensionless points didn’t exist to precede them. Mathematical points underlie, underpin and form the basic building blocks of *everything*. Mathematically, all points are described by the number zero. But zero is more than just a mathematical point, it’s a LIVING being: a soul. It’s not conscious of course, although it can potentially become so, but only when it’s attached to a complex organism such as a human body with an enormously sophisticated brain.

We can’t see souls precisely because they’re zero, nothing, dimensionless, intangible. They are in the *real *world but not in the *physical *world of matter, yet matter is in fact nothing but particular arrangements of monads. In another book dedicated to the purpose – *The God Game: How to Create the Universe *– we will reveal the precise mathematics of this seemingly paradoxical situation which has utterly baffled the world’s greatest scientists and philosophers.

Our essential point is that mathematics isn’t a theoretical abstraction that helps human minds to understand the laws of science. Rather, mathematics is real and scientific laws are simply reflecting the mathematical structure of existence. Zeros, viewed *objectively*, are mathematical points. However, when viewed *subjectively*, they are MINDS – unconscious mental entities capable of evolving consciousness – and, in religious terms they are eternal, indivisible souls outside space and time that can never perish.

Thus we see that Descartes’ classic mind-body dualism is resolved mathematically. Mind is the domain of dimensionless, extensionless, mathematical points (zeros) and matter is the domain of mathematical, physical, extended entities assembled from enormous collections of points linked mathematically. There is in fact no mind-matter dichotomy at all. There is simply mathematics that comes in two flavours: dimensional (matter) and dimensionless (mind).

Carl Jung wrote: [There are] sufficient reasons [for believing that] the psychic lies embedded in something that appears to be of a non-psychic nature.

He spoke of a cosmic order independent of our choice and distinct from the world of phenomena.

He said, The background of microphysics and depth-psychology is as much physical as psychic and therefore neither, but rather a third thing, a neutral nature which can at most be grasped in hints since in essence it is transcendental.

The neutral *tertium quid *(third thing) that Jung was desperately seeking to identify is of course mathematics. It is neither pure mind nor pure matter but gives rise to both and explains everything about how they interact. All interaction between minds and bodies is mediated mathematically and minds and bodies are, at root, mathematical entities. Mathematics is EVERYTHING. There is absolutely nothing else. The only reason why the universe is ordered and intelligible is that it is mathematical. A non-mathematical universe is an impossibility. Without mathematics, without the dimensionless points that constitute the building blocks of all mathematics, nothing could exist.

All numbers are just different totals of dimensionless points. All shapes are simply organised collections of dimensionless points. All equations are simply ways of relating assemblies of dimensionless points. The mysterious dark energy

that physicists are seeking is none other than the effect of the inexorable movement of dimensionless points. What is a black hole? – a dimensionless point (singularity). In a black hole, matter is crushed down to what it came from in the first place: dimensionless points. What was the Big Bang singularity? – a dimensionless point made up of an infinity of dimensionless points (because any number of dimensionless points can occupy the same dimensionless point since there are no physical limitations given that a dimensionless point does not exist in the physical world: from the point of view of the physical world, the Singularity appears to be nothing

!).

There is only one possible candidate for explaining the entirety of existence: mathematics. Mathematics is the source of all absolute, Platonic knowledge. Mathematics perfectly unifies ontology (the study of existence) and epistemology (the study of knowledge). We have sure and certain knowledge of existence thanks to mathematics. Mathematics is the queen of the sciences and superior to science. Mathematics, unlike scientific materialism, acknowledges the reality of zero, hence of mind.

Scientific materialism should be rebranded as Mathematical Materialism

while Illuminism is Mathematical Idealism.

We can demonstrate that Mathematical Materialism (science) is but a subset of Mathematical Idealism. Mathematical Materialism is incomplete because it ignores the two most important numbers: zero and infinity. Mathematical Idealism is complete because it includes these two numbers.

Mathematics, not science, is true reality. Mathematics is the arche, as Pythagoras declared so brilliantly over 2,500 years ago! Mathematical truths are absolute and unimpeachable. Nothing else offers the certainty of mathematics. Mathematics is infallible and unarguable. Mathematics is either right or wrong. There is no mid-ground for opinion, debate, faith, wishful thinking or fantasy. Mathematics is the hammer of truth that smashes to pieces all falsehood. There is nowhere to hide with mathematics. It’s the ultimate bullshit detector. Why has no holy prophet ever been a mathematician? Why has the Abrahamist God

never uttered a word of mathematics and never used a single mathematical equation? Because mathematics would ruthlessly and mercilessly expose all holy

lies and false claims.

Mathematics has the same icy logic as the Guillotine. It chops nonsense to pieces. It kills liars. It decapitates all deceivers. Any claims to truth not expressed in mathematics are *total bullshit*, quite literally meaningless and worthless. Mathematics is the sole language of the truth. Deep down, everyone knows that’s the case. Mathematics is the most feared subject of all because it couldn’t care less about people’s feelings, wishes and delusions. Mathematics is the true language of the sacred. Equations are infallible Holy Writ.

All progress ever made by the human race ultimately derives from mathematics. Not a single word of the Torah, Bible or Koran has ever advanced the human condition. They are books for the stupid, for the anti-mathematicians who want to live in caves. It’s no coincidence that illiterate, innumerate Mohammed had his revelation

in a cave. Why doesn’t the Koran begin with the equation 0 + 1 = 1? Then we could take it seriously.

Mathematical laws not scientific experiments offer us true knowledge. Science is always a feeble imitation of mathematics. Scientific experiments are certainly helpful and indeed vital, but they are not the essence of truth. Mathematics is the true gospel, the Voice of God, the Book of Life.

There are only two shows in town: Mathematical Idealism (Illuminism) and Mathematical Materialism (Science). Everything else is absurd, preposterous, ridiculous, ludicrous, farcical and pure nonsense from beginning to end. The Abrahamist religions have ZERO truth content since they don’t mention mathematics once. They don’t feature a single mathematical equation. You simply couldn’t get further from the truth. Eastern religions have managed to intuitively grasp some mathematical truths, but they haven’t been able to express them meaningfully. They have remained trapped in nebulous mysticism. There is no mathematical clarity.

Illuminism alone is the answer to EVERYTHING. All other systems of thought are rendered null and void by Illuminism. We offer the Grand Unified Theory of Everything, linking religion, science, mathematics, philosophy, psychology and even the so-called paranormal. The reason these are all brought together in one package is that they are all reflections of the same underlying reality: living mathematics.

The universe is alive. It is an organism that is continually solving mathematical equations, first and foremost of which is the Equation of Consciousness. Mathematics – the universe – becomes free and undetermined at the point at which living equations become conscious of themselves.

Jung said, My life is a story of the self-realization of the unconscious.

We say that the universe’s life is the story of the self-realisation of unconscious mathematics.

Another critical number that has been dismissed as unreal

by professional mathematicians and physicists is one that features in endless engineering and scientific equations (including those of quantum mechanics): the so-called imaginary number

, i, the square root of -1.

We assert that the reason this number appears everywhere is that it has ontological reality. In fact, it is the mathematical origin of the dimension of TIME.

So, Mathematical Idealism and Mathematical Materialism can be differentiated in terms of three crucial numbers. Mathematical Materialism denies that zero, infinity and the imaginary number have any real existence. Mathematical Idealism, on the other hand, asserts that zero is the ontological basis of Mind, the imaginary number is the ontological basis of Time and infinity is the ontological capacity of each individual mind – i.e. each Mind has infinite capacity and
