This is the introductory text of the "God Series" of books in which the Pythagorean Illuminati reveal, for the first time in the public domain, the "answer to everything".


Pythagoras provided a glimpse of the answer 2,500 years ago when he declared, "All things are numbers". The God series fully reveals what Pythagoras meant. Mathematics - built from numbers - is not an abstraction but is ontological: it actually exists. Numbers are real things. Specifically, they are the frequencies of energy waves. (Moreover, energy waves are simply sinusoidal waves: sines and cosines, meaning that the study of energy is the study of sinusoids). There are infinity energy waves, hence infinite numbers. No numbers are privileged over any others, so negative and imaginary numbers are as ontologically important as real numbers (upon which scientific materialism is exclusively based).

Illumination 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 which are based on faith, superstition, irrationality, stories, parables, myths, legends and "divine revelations". These religions are false in every possible way.


Illumination is the sole true religion. It's 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.

Three hundred years ago, it was still possible for an intelligent person to have read all of the books that constituted the whole knowledge base of the world.

Three hundred years ago, most intelligent people in the world believed that the world was a holistic, living organism of some kind, imbued with mind and divinity: matter was alive (hylozoism), or mind was everywhere (panpsychism), or God was involved in everything, everywhere (theism), or God and Nature were one (pantheism).

A hundred years later, the world had become immensely specialized and complex, and the world was increasingly viewed by intelligent people as a vast, purposeless, clockwork mechanism. Either there was no God (atheism), or he was an extremely remote God of Rational Laws (deism) and not of revelation and personal salvation.

What is time? Scientists know how to measure time, but they have no idea what it actually is. This books explains the deep mystery of time. It clarifies all of the enigmas concerning the tensed and tenseless theories of time, and addresses McTaggart's famous claim that time is "unreal".


Hegel's classification of "good" and "bad" infinity is analyzed, and a new mathematics of infinity is introduced, based on the concept of the "finite infinite" as opposed to the "infinite infinite".


The correct answer is given to Zeno's notoriously problematic paradox of the race between Achilles and the tortoise

What is the most ingenious error in the history of science, so difficult to detect that only a genius could manage it?


“In any collection of data, the figure most obviously correct, beyond all need of checking, is the mistake.” -- Finagle’s Third Law (Arthur Bloch)


One of the foundation stones of modern physics - the most obviously correct, beyond all need of checking and devised by one of the greatest geniuses of all - is the catastrophic blunder that is preventing scientists from unifying quantum theory and general relativity.

Join us on the strangest detective case of all - finding the weapon that has murdered science. This is the ultimate whodunnit.

Euler’s Formula is traditionally regarded as the most beautiful equation in all of mathematics. Yet it’s so much more than that. It’s the equation that governs the whole universe and even defines the human soul!


It’s the centrepiece of the hyperrational mathematical religion of the Pythagorean Illuminati, the most ancient secret society in the world.

Everyone has an ultimate secret, even God. Since the dawn of time, humanity has sought to discover this most precious of all things. Our finest minds, noblest souls and most adventurous spirits have quested for the Holy Grail, the Philosopher’s Stone and the mystical Blue Flower of transcendent perfection.


Prometheus stole the fire of the gods to give to humanity, and suffered a terrible punishment for his beneficence and audacity. Faust obsessively pursued the infinite and unreachable, and was willing to pay any price, even if it cost him his soul.

The central claim of rationalism is that a sufficiently clever person, sitting alone in their room, could work out all of the principles of existence, everything that makes our world what it is. No faith and no sensory observations or experiments are required. No one needs to spend billions building a Large Hadron Collider. However, you DO require the mind of a genius, and it's not an atom smasher you need but a bullshit and fallacy smasher.


Hyperrationalism differs from rationalism in one crucial regard. It asserts that all rational truths are mathematical and that the universe is 100% mathematical.

The Noosphere is a "thinking atmosphere" that has been evolving on Earth since the dawn of humanity. The internet is a physical manifestation of it: a worldwide linked network; a global information exchange between people. But what comes next? Does mind detach itself from bodies? Can the collective consciousness of humanity leave Earth and soar off into the heavens on the most amazing of all cosmic journeys? Is the Noosphere a Soul Sphere, composed of the souls of all good, enlightened, moral, rational human beings, and leaving behind the souls of all the greedy, selfish, hateful monsters and psychopaths who have ruled our world? Imagine the Soul Sphere merging, finally, with the "God Sphere" and establishing a Society of the Divine. Is that the ultimate destiny of higher humanity?

What is history's biggest lie? It's that there's one "God", that he Created the universe out of nothing and made Adam from the dirt of the Garden of Eden, with Eve then being generated from one of Adam's ribs! Nothing has done more damage to the human psyche than monotheism - the doctrine of an all-powerful "Spy God" who watches what everyone does (the divine peeping Tom) and sentences to perpetual pain in his cosmic torture chamber of hell anyone who doesn't slavishly worship and obey him.


In fact, the universe is a mathematical "God factory" and creates infinite Gods over eons of time, via the optimization of the cosmic equation (the universal wavefunction), which is entirely mathematical.

Humanity is a single biological species but has split into two different mental species labelled Mythos and Logos. The Mythos species is driven by emotional stories, not by facts, evidence or rational arguments. Christians believe that the all-powerful Creator of the universe, rather than simply sort out Earth’s problems, chose to be born of a 14-year-old Jewish “virgin”, have himself arrested by the Romans and crucified, then resurrect himself, while taking great care to be seen only by his most fanatical supporters and not by anyone who didn’t believe in him. The Jews believe that Moses went up a mountain and received two stone tablets of the Ten Commandments, written by God’s fiery finger. The Muslims believe that the illiterate “prophet” Mohammed went into a cave and had the Word of God dictated to him by the Angel Gabriel.

The world is always forcing its propaganda on you. Everyone is "selling" you something. At the very least, they're selling you their story, their version of events, their view of the world, the way they want things to be. You're at it too, of course. Facebook and Twitter are not social networking platforms. Rather, they're personal propaganda vehicles, which is why they're so successful and why people lavish so much time on them. They're cyber self-portraits, and people will endlessly keep airbrushing them, trying to perfect them. What's the secret of making money? Pander to people's narcissism. Make it all about them - their favourite subject.

Ancient cultures were faced with two immense problems. Why is there something rather than nothing and why is the universe ordered rather than chaotic? To answer these questions, they invented cosmologies, which were also the basis of their religious beliefs. A person’s cosmological and religious beliefs are always interdependent. If you have an atheistic (scientific materialist) cosmology, you will be an atheist. If you have a Creator God cosmology, you will be an Abrahamist. If you have a pantheistic cosmology equating God and Nature, you are likely to follow an Eastern religion. If you have an ontological mathematical cosmology, you will be an advocate of the rational soul (dimensionless mathematical monad – Fourier frequency domain singularity).

The universe is a mathematical hologram. It’s made of ontological mathematics. It’s a living, thinking, self-optimising holographic organism composed of immortal, indestructible, ontological mathematical units called monads, defined by the most powerful and beautiful equation in the whole of mathematics: Euler’s Formula.

Monads have a much more resonant name: souls. We all inhabit Soul World, a wondrous Singularity outside space and time. Our souls are individual mathematical singularities: autonomous, uncaused, uncreated, dimensionless frequency domains. Via Fourier mathematics, these imperishable, immaterial monadic souls can collectively create the spacetime domain of the material world. Where each soul is a single frequency domain, the material world of space and time is their collective Fourier output. What is “matter”? It’s simply dimensional energy: energy existing in the Fourier spacetime domain rather than in the Fourier dimensionless frequency domain.

The universe is nothing like how it appears to us. So, what's it really like? What is it in itself? Neither our senses nor any experiments can reveal the ultimate truth of existence. Fortunately, one thing can: reason. We inhabit the Mathmos: the mathematical cosmos. This book reveals the compelling secrets of the hidden reality that we will never once "see", but we can surely know - thanks to mathematics.

David Hume asked devastating questions about causality, and whether it even existed. This book provides the answer to what causality actually is, and where it is. If you don't know these things, how can you claim to know anything at all?

A book attacking the ideology of Richard Dawkins is invariably assumed to be a defence of religious faith. Nothing could be further from the truth in this case. This book equates faith with insanity. Instead, it argues that we live in the hyperrational reality of ontological mathematics. We attack the scientific dogma of Dawkins and his fellow travellers for being incompatible with ontological mathematics, and, in fact, constituting a quasi-religious (hence mad) faith in empiricism, materialism, randomness and meaninglessness (nihilism), all of which are refuted by ontological mathematics, which reflects the principle of sufficient reason. Are you rational enough for the truth? Are you intelligent enough to be an ontological mathematician? Many are called, few are chosen.

Are you free, or are you a machine that suffers from a delusion that it’s free? Free will is perhaps the most important subject of all because if we are authentically free, scientific materialism is ipso facto false, and the world is in urgent need of a revolutionary paradigm shift. This book shows that free will has a most unexpected advocate – mathematics. Only in a mathematical universe can we be free. Only in a mathematical universe can we have a soul. And in a mathematical universe, free will is much better understood as will to power, and to have an intimate connection with cosmic symmetry and “God”. It’s all in the math!

The greatest catastrophe in intellectual history was to regard physics as real and mathematics as an unreal abstraction. In fact, mathematics is noumenal (true) reality, and physics is phenomenal (illusory) reality. Mathematics tells you what things are in themselves, and physics tells you how they appear to us. Mathematics is the perfect ground of existence, defined by the God Equation. It’s the source of causation, determinism and objective reality; all of the things now formally denied by physics, which claims that observable reality is indeterministically born of unreal, probabilistic wavefunctions.


It’s time to replace the scientific method with the mathematical method. It’s time to recognize that true reality is intelligible, not sensible; noumenal, not phenomenal; unobservable, not observable; metaphysical, not physical; hidden, not manifest; rationalist, not empiricist; necessary, not contingent. Physics is literally incapable of detecting true reality since true reality is an eternal, indestructible, dimensionless mathematical Singularity, outside space and time. The Singularity is a precisely defined Fourier frequency domain. There’s nothing “woo woo” about it. It's pure math.

What is form? What is content? You cannot understand what life and mind are unless you can answer these two fundamental questions of ontology.

Magic illusions are all about misdirection: making sure that the audience is looking away from what’s really going on. For humanity, both religious faith and scientific materialism misdirect us away from truth and reality.


Magicians claim to pull rabbits out of empty hats. The God of Abraham pulls a whole universe out of nothing whatsoever, while scientific materialism performs the greatest magic trick of all by abolishing God and pulling the entirety of existence out of its opposite – non-existence – through nothing other than a random accident, with no conceivable explanation or sufficient reason.


Scientific materialism puts all magicians to shame. It manages to magic life out of lifeless atoms, and mind out of mindless atoms. That’s some trick!

The cleverest people in the world are those most capable of making the least expected connections between apparently disparate things. This book explains how light, life, mind, souls, causation, motion, energy, ontological mathematics and ontological reason are all synonymous.

Are you one of the rare few capable of seeing the light? Can you see the hidden mathematical order beneath the Grand Illusion presented to our senses? Only those on the verge of Enlightenment have any hope of understanding ontological mathematics, the science of the soul, the science of the unseen light of the Universal Mind.

It’s all in the math.

There are two kinds of intellectual: Philosophers and Sophists. The former seek the absolute truth while the latter seek the “practical” truth that brings them worldly prestige and success.

The Philosophers develop positions that rely on the highest intelligence and are as far removed as possible from the “common sense” of the mob. The common herd hold Philosophers in more or less complete contempt. The greatest Philosopher of all was Leibniz, a man unknown to the general public, and relatively obscure even within intellectual circles.

Any theory – any theory at all – that begins with false assumptions will produce false results. Therefore, the most fundamental task of all is to examine and get right the assumptions that underlie a theory. How do science’s fundamental assumptions stand up to scrutiny? Science falls apart at a particular aspect of existence that can be defined exactly – at singularities. The whole logic of science collapses when singularities are encountered. This is fantastically problematic for science given that black holes are centred on singularities, photons are singularities, and the whole of the Big Bang Universe came from a Singularity.

What, ontologically, are singularities? Descartes gave us the answer hundreds of years ago. Singularities are minds, and from that single fact, science is turned on its head. Mind does not come from matter; matter comes from mind.

If a scientific materialist were asked to sum up his belief system, he might reflect exactly what Richard Feynman, a pope of science, said: “If, in some cataclysm, all of scientific knowledge were to be destroyed, and only one sentence passed on to the next generation of creatures, what statement would contain the most information in the fewest words? I believe it is the atomic hypothesis (or the atomic fact, or whatever you wish to call it) that all things are made of atoms – little particles that move around in perpetual motion, attracting each other when they are a little distance apart, but repelling upon being squeezed into one another. In that one sentence, you will see, there is an enormous amount of information about the world, if just a little imagination and thinking are applied.”

Science is about the mundane, visible world. Religion is about the transcendent, invisible world. Atheists believe that science is the only way to explain the world. Agnostics think it’s the best way. But is science actually a system of explanation at all, or merely a good problem-solving tool and method that achieves practical success in the observable world? Isn’t science, like God, in need of an explanation? What is its ontological and epistemological basis? What limitations does it have? How does it define “Truth”?

Immanuel Kant, via his philosophy of transcendental idealism, attempted to explain science within a philosophical and even religious context. This attempt ultimately failed, but the project itself need not be abandoned. This book shows, via a detailed investigation of Kant’s philosophy, that the only way to make sense of science is via transcendental mathematics.

“The problem is not to find the answer, it’s to face the answer.” – Terence McKenna

At school, you are taught “science”. You are not taught the history of science, so you have no idea how science came to be the institution it now is. Above all, you have no idea that science is a vast, rigid system of dogmatism and ideology, an inflexible paradigm, an incomplete and inconsistent set of heuristic fictions, a quasi-religious faith that, on behalf of scientific empiricism, explicitly opposes philosophical and mathematical rationalism.

One hundred percent of scientists think that Einstein’s special theory of relativity is correct. One hundred percent of scientists are wrong. Isn’t that astounding? Why is it so hard for scientists to see the blatant errors in Einstein’s logic?

The central reason for the failure of Einstein’s theory as an account of ultimate existence is that, like everything else in science, it denies the real existence of mind. Once mind is admitted to physics, Einstein’s fallacies become obvious. To refute both Einstein and the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics, only one thing is required ... to place an eternal, non-sensory, mathematical Singularity at the centre of the spacetime universe. This Singularity is a Fourier frequency domain, but is functionally equivalent to a Cosmic Mind (“God”, we might say). Because it’s an immaterial, dimensionless entity outside space and time, the Singularity is undetectable by any scientific experiment, yet its existence automatically disproves all claims of scientific materialism regarding the fundamental nature of reality.

Are you a ghost or a machine? You don’t need to be a superstitious believer to support the side of the ghosts. In this book, we will show that the ghost side has two faces: Mythos and Logos. The Mythos version of ghosts is laughably silly ... just read the Torah, Bible or Koran to discover how preposterous and irrational it is. The Logos version, on the other hand, is the most rational position you can possibly arrive at, that of hyperrationality, expressed through pure, ontological, monadic mathematics.

For people with a machine mentality (scientists and atheists), everything is about visible objects, and the denial of any invisible reality. For all religious and spiritual people, there’s more to existence than merely what appears to us. There are invisible things – such as souls – and invisible, mental forces, beyond the reach of any scientific experiment, but, crucially, not beyond the reach of reason, logic and mathematics.

“Without mathematics we cannot penetrate deeply into philosophy. Without philosophy we cannot penetrate deeply into mathematics. Without both we cannot penetrate deeply into anything.” – Leibniz

In intellectual history, perhaps nothing has been more misinterpreted than Gödel’s incompleteness theorems. Stephen Hawking, adopting the popular misconception, said, “Thus mathematics is either inconsistent, or incomplete. The smart money is on incomplete.”

This book is about the titanic struggle for the soul of mathematics, and reflects two immense battles in which mathematics is immersed to this day.

Where is your mind located? How does it interact with your body? When your body dies, does your mind die too, or does it have an afterlife? That’s the mystery of existence. If humanity cannot answer these questions once and for all then it has no understanding of reality.

The answer is not going to be something obvious. It will require some great conceptual leap, hitherto unforeseen by almost all of humanity.

The ancients believed that a person was a reflection of the cosmos. A person had a body and a soul, and so did the cosmos. Is that a silly Mythos, or can it be intellectually defended?

People can’t reason. They don’t even know what reason is. “Reason” is almost always harnessed to something that has nothing to do with reason. Believers in mainstream religion are feeling types who “reason” with their emotions, or with their mystical intuitions. They subscribe to narrative “logic”, i.e. to a holy text by some charismatic prophet claiming to convey God’s thoughts. They never ask why God doesn’t communicate his message directly ... with no middle men, and no bizarre books about desert tribes from thousands of years ago.

No rational person takes religion seriously given that rationalism is exactly what is absent from it. Mainstream religion isn’t designed for thinking types. It’s for feeling types and intuitives. It’s about Mythos rather than Logos. The only religion a thinking person would take seriously is a Logos religion, with no prophets, no holy books, no commandments, no ban on bacon sandwiches, no demand to wear strings dangling from your trousers, to grow a big beard and sport a funny hat.

This book explains how the entire universe can be created using just two ingredients: nothing at all and the principle of sufficient reason.

This is the final book in The God Series.
