Vitvan (one who knows), in a Nutshell

Vitvan In A Nutshell

"Fruit tree yielding fruit whose seed is inside itself."

The entire teaching may be found to rest in the 
Four Seeds
4 Pillars

1. The I AM, which is my true Self, is the Power with which I AM conscious of my world.

2. May the Peace and the Power of the Infinite Spirit, which passes all understanding,
Hold us and keep us, in the Love of the Christed Consciousness,
While we are seemingly separated one from another.

3. May the Blessed Ones lead us from Darkness into Light.

4. Sortem Suam Quisque Amet
"May each one love their destiny."


Our separation is only seemingly so
We are

I've seen some of the invoices you've issued to the black robes and I'm interested in helping any way I can.  I am quite familiar with commercial processes and, while I'm certainly no expert on the matter, nor am I a trained attorney, I do have some experience and have studied the issue closely over the years. 
I'd be interested to know more about the basis for the invoices and what has been done to perfect the obligation in commercial terms.  As you know, an invoice is a reflection of, or a demand upon a pre-existing obligation.  So in other words, the question is, how exactly was the liability created and perfected? 
it is possible to securitize those obligations.  In fact there are a couple chapters in my book dealing with some folks who learned exactly how to do that in a way which the banks and the U.S. Treasury accepted and monetized. 
of course you know you're playing with fire, but fire can be a great tool when controlled properly! 
I hope to hear from you.

The Parable of the Seed by A. B. Kuhn

The Parable of the Seed

by Alvin Boyd Kuhn

* Electronically typed and edited by Juan Schoch for educational research purposes of that contained in his library. This notice is not to be removed.

It is remarkable how often the idea and the figure of the seed is encountered in the field of ancient mythicism and scriptural allegory. Ancient writing, especially that which gave us our scriptures, almost universally took the form of symbolic dramatization of truth.

In a much higher than a literal sense, it was picture-writing. It framed and painted pictures of truth structures. This gives us the reason why such writing has been able to grip and command the intellectual allegiance of the best human intellects down the ages. Oddly enough, it was able to command and build this loyalty only as the pictures presented were clearly sensed as being diaphanous films which, while exhibiting the outlines or image of truth, still did not stop the view, but let it through to the perception of the reality of truth beyond. And tragically enough, when keener perceptive genius was lacking, and insight was stopped at the outer figure, failing to pierce its transparency to the reality behind the film, the ancient pictographs of eternal truth did not build high mental allegiance, but repelled it. In short, only the allegorical mode of interpretation has won the allegiance of capable minds; the literal mode has repelled sound thinking, and caught only the less competent, less critical, minds of the unthinking masses. The situation has spelled unbelievable catastrophe in human history, far more than the general mind is aware.

Ancient dramatic genius held up to the human imagination the allegory of the seed. It is one of the most potent of all analogues. As nature is truth in the concrete, being the actual crystallizations in visible matter of the ideas of the creative mind, every natural object, more particularly every living creature, represents to human view the form of the idea of which it is the physical embodiment. In all creatural life and its phenomena creative idea stands revealed before our eyes in actual presence. Still, however, a certain intuitive genius is required if the mental structure of the idea revealed by the physical object is to be discovered. Failure or default of this introspective adroitness will have the human beholder unenlightened, leave him standing gaping at the picture of ideal thought and remaining wholly oblivious of it. This is what Wordsworth hints at in his poem Peter Bell, where he says:

A primrose by the river’s brink,

a yellow primrose was to him,

And it was nothing more.

The seed probably tells man more about his life and its significance than any single object in nature. But one must focus the lens of thought to pierce beyond the outer physical, if the ideal form of truth and meaning is to be seen. Behind the objective form is the original creative idea-form, the subjective thought form. What does the seed reveal?

To begin with, it is in itself both fruit and seed. Here is one of the most commonest facts of nature, yet few have seen the seed as the hieroglyph of creation that it is. What it proclaims is the great fundamental that the end product of one cycle of growth is at the same time the beginning point of the next cycle. The last thing that a living entity does, before passing out of existence, is to provide the agency for the renewal of its existence in its next period. This it does simply through the production of its fruit. The achievement of its own glorification is at the same time the generation of its offspring. In its progeny it will experience a renewal of its own life.

It is perhaps impossible for the mind of man to grasp the full import of this simple principle. It is mythically mystifying, as are the concept of space, the unthinkable immensity of the universe, the duality of sex, and the polarity of life. For it carries the truth that life’s death is at the same time its rebirth, that it is marching to death and new birth simultaneously. Its end is its beginning.

Theology has not reckoned with this concept in the place in the Bible where it is most centrally announced—in the Noah-ark flood allegory. The entire representation there is the story of the seed. When all manifest creation was to be washed away in the flood of dissolution that overtakes all cyclic creations at the end, the purpose of the ark as a refuge of salvation for the human and animal units of life was “that the seed of life might be kept alive on the face of all the earth.” For the word “ark” comes directly from the Greek arche, meaning beginning. The Bible’s first verse opens in Greek with the phrase en arche, “in the beginning.” The end of the world, since that and not a water flood or continental submergence is what the allegory truly depicts, was at the same time the preservation of the elements from which a new beginning was to be made. When life’s material forms are washed away at the cycle’s end, life itself retires into potential state in the seed produced by the last embodied expression to emerge again. The seed is any living creature’s “ark.” Much ancient mythicism testifies to this.

But the great moving power of the seed analogue is seen in another feature disclosed to deeper investigation. This is the revelation of a mighty principle of life’s procedure. And it is indeed the basic item for the whole science of religion. For it explains why man has a god potentially, within his own constitution. Religion is the science of the relation between man the human and this god-like presence within him.

The law referenced to is that which is seen operative in the actual relation between the seed or young plant and the soil in which it is to take root and develop its growth. The great principle there exemplified is the fact that the seed of life in any kingdom, must be buried or planted in the soil of the kingdom immediately below it in the scale. Thus the seed of a vegetable must be buried in the soil of the mineral kingdom. The seed of animal life is incorporated in a body composed of vegetable elements transmuted to flesh; the seed of human life is embodied and develops in an animal corpus. The next step unfolds the entire anthropological basis of the science of religion, for it discloses that the seed of a god-being, the order next above man, must be planted in the soil of the human kingdom. Therefore man’s life is the garden in which the seed of a deific nature or being has been buried. The entire ethical, spiritual, and psychological science of man’s life can be subsumed under the terms of the relationship subsisting and developing between the germinal “divine” mind thus implanted in man’s body and that body itself.

Every item and aspect of the relation of soul and body in humanity—which is religion—is to be seen prefigured in the elements of the relation between seed and soil. If the latter are closely studied, the principles of religion, philosophy, psychology and ethics will be seen to be reflected or exhibited in the analogue. For man is to learn by his contemplation of truth in the seen world, what are the eternal principia of truth in the unseen world, as St. Paul tells us. “For that which may be known as the God is manifest,” he says, “being understood from the things which are made.”

Such is the dynamic force of this truth that, in the words of Radhakrishnan’s great work on Indian Philosophy, reflecting the teaching of the Upanishads of India, “to deny the world without is to destroy the God within.” Denial or ignoring of the truth-forms in the world without, would be to cut ourselves off from the open pages of the text-book of truth which has been provided for our daily reading. To contemplate a grain of corn in the ground, is to gain a vivid realistic sense of the presence of the god-seed in our own bodies. The whole of our piety and our philosophy should be consecrated to the prime object of our lives—the geometry and happy growth of the embryo-god within us.



Thanks for this offering Juan. The old wisdom for sure.
Have you ever seen the work of Stan Tenen?  He is a pattern recognizer and saw a pattern in the first verse of Genesis, which as you may know, in Hebrew there are NO spaces so you have to know where to break the words. He put the letters literally one per bead and strung them on a chain. Then coiled them around until each letter touched its similar.
From that he showed its mathematical representation to be that of a torus.
When reduced to its simplest outline in 3D you have what looks like a curling twisting “flame” shaped object.
This SINGLE object, when looked at from different angles, produces all the “flame” letters of the Hebrew alphabet! Use a light and the shadows are the letters.
This is a metaphor made manifest: From the ONE come the MANY which are only aspects of the One. Once “GD” emanated as Light, then all the Forms appear!
This relates to the Seed parable in that Stan shows/explains that the very definition of “hyperdimensional” meaning an object that contains both its Alpha and Omega, which in math would be a cube within a cube for example, was represented as a Seed. “Tree bearing fruit with Seed; Seed bearing Tree.
The seed is a hyperdimensional object, it contains the “arche” of its forbear, it will reproduce the One who produced it!
This is how GD operates: makes Mankind which are the seeds, and of those, some will grow and return in their passage thru Nature (the Organ of GD) back to gnosis of GD!

IRS Must Verify Assessments: see IRC 6065, 6330(c)(1)

IRS Must Verify Assessments

By Lysander on 28 May 2011

Tax Court ruled that IRS Appeals officers must verify that a proper assessment was made in a CDP hearing. 

Even if the taxpayer doesn’t raise the issue until he is in Tax Court, the IRS must verify the assessment.

This is the Case: Hoyle v. Commissioner, 131 T.C. No. 13 (12-3-2008)(2008-12-02)

SUMMARY: The Tax Court claimed jurisdiction over whether an assessment was properly made 

even though the taxpayer didn’t raise the issue at his CDP hearing.  

IRC 6330(c)(1) requires the IRS to show that an assessment was properly made 

even if the taxpayer doesn’t bring it up at the hearing.  (c)(1)

(c) Matters considered at hearing
In the case of any hearing conducted under this section—

(1) Requirement of investigation
The appeals officer shall at the hearing obtain verification from the Secretary 
that the requirements of any applicable law or administrative procedure have been met.


I've been saying that for YEARS now!!

(3)     the procedurally proper Assessment Certificatedated and signed under the penalties of perjury by a duly authorized Assessment Officer, which corresponds to each “Assessment” alleged above, and which demonstrates full compliance with the federal statutes at IRC §§ 6212-6213(c) (“deficiency ... shall be assessed”), IRC §§ 6201-6203 (“Secretary is required”, “Secretary shall”), and IRC § 6065, the court decision in Brafman v. U.S., 384 F.2d 863 (5th Cir. 1967), the implementing federal regulation at 26 CFR 301.6203-1, and all pertinent provisions of the Internal Revenue Manual (“IRM”) now rendered enforceable by the IRS Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 (“RRA98”);

The relevant Federal court decisions that bear on the facts as summarized above are sampled as follows (emphases added infra):


Even if a taxpayer waives right to prepayment litigation in Tax Court by not acting within 90-day period after deficiency notice and taxpayer does not voluntarily pay tax, government must first send notice and demand letter and then wait ten days before it levies on taxpayer’s property in the normal, as opposed to jeopardy case.


[Schreck v. U.S., 301 F.Supp. 1265]

[USDC/D. Maryland 1969]


Appropriate remedy for federal government’s error in assessing tax deficiency without first issuing a required notice of deficiency to taxpayers was order voiding tax assessment itself, and not merely the government’s tax lien.


[Snyder v. IRS, 337 B.R. 542]

[USDC/D. Maryland 2005]


Where IRS disallowed certain miscellaneous itemized deductions claimed on income tax return and made assessment based thereonwithout issuing notice of deficiency, such assessment was invalid, and levy could not proceed.


[Freije v. C.I.R., 125 T.C. 14]

[U.S. Tax Court 2005, unreported]


Taxpayer could sue to enjoin IRS from seizing his wages, until it had first complied with statutory notice of deficiencyrequirements, under exception to Anti-Injunction Act authorizing injunction to prohibit assessment or levy when taxpayer has not received notice of deficiency.


[Heun v. Williams, 864 F.Supp. 169]

[USDC/W.D. Oklahoma 1994]


Unless government has first pursued formal deficiency procedures, no income tax deficiency can be assessed and no levy or court proceeding for collecting income tax deficiency may be begun or prosecuted, and if government essays to do so, the making of such assessment or levy may be enjoined by a proceeding in proper court ....


[U.S. v. Bonaguro, 294 F.Supp. 750]

[USDC/E.D. New York 1968]


Where no tax deficiency has been asserted against one whose property is seized, a suit against the government for injunctive relief seems peculiarly appropriate, for the aggrieved party, not being an alleged tax delinquent, would have no opportunity in the ordinary channels of tax litigation to contest the validity of the government’s assessment.

Doris Kearns Goodwin had sexual relations with the Murderer of John Kennedy: Lyndon Baines Johnson

Doris Kearns Goodwin has Fucked the Murderer of John Kennedy: Lyndon Baines Johnson

From Robert Morrow     512-306-1510

So sick of seeing Doris Kearns Goodwin constantly on Charlie Rose and glorifying Lucifer Before Jesus:

On the last show in July 2015, glorifying Lyndon Johnson over passing Medicare, Charlie Rose kept asking a grinning, flushed red-faced Doris Kearns Goodwin “What was the nature of your relationship with Lyndon Johnson?” Doris would not say how acquainted she was with “Jumbo,” as she squirmed about in her seat.

Phil Nelson does a good job of covering this in his fabulous book LBJ: From Mastermind to the Colossus in the section “Lyndon Johnson’s Odd Relationship with Doris Kearns:”

Phil Nelson:

Google image of LBJ and cum bucket Doris Kearns:


Sycophantic LBJ biographer Doris Kearns Goodwin was having an affair with Lyndon Johnson

LBJ pressured Kearns for sex, later asked her to MARRY him!

Was LBJ biographer Doris Kearns having an affair with Lyndon Johnson? Here is the response of a well known JFK assassination researcher when I posed that question to him: “No doubt about that one ….” Sally Quinn had said some rather provocative things about Doris Kearns-Goodwin's relationship with LBJ in those "final years."  Here is a reference to that in a Wash Post article (“A Tale of Hearts and Minds, 8/24/75) alluded to in the LA Times in 2002:

Goodwin's first dip in the waters of infamy came in 1967, when, having received a White House fellowship, she was photographed dancing with Lyndon Johnson at a reception. The story turned on the fact that the president's dance partner, then Doris Kearns, had just co-written a piece for the New Republic under the headline: "How to Remove L.B.J. in 1968."

Later, in the early 1970s, Kearns and Richard Goodwin, lovers but not yet married, set off a literary scandal that attracted national media attention. It involved a "psychobiography"  that Kearns was writing about Johnson, based in part on intimate conversations they'd had on his ranch in Texas, and a decision to bring Goodwin aboard as a co-author.

Their plan was to expand what had begun as a scholarly work--intended to help secure for her a tenured professorship at Harvard University--break with a smaller publishing house and sell the book elsewhere, for about five times the money. As the dispute grew, the story oozed outward to include speculation in print about whether Kearns might have had an affair with Johnson.

Sally Quinn, flying at her highest as a feature writer in the Washington Post's Style section, wrote a lively, at times almost embarrassingly explicit, account of the chaos that had come to Kearn's love and literary life. The piece ran for what seemed like forever, and it included a rather tart summation:

"  Kearns has always gotten what she wanted--and made it look as if she didn't even try. She got elected student-body president at Colby College in Maine, got the best grades, got the best beaux, got into Harvard, got a White House fellowship, got Lyndon Johnson, got her Ph.D, got her professorship at Harvard, got her book, got author Richard Goodwin and got Goodwin to collaborate with her on the book. Those are all things she wanted, or thought she wanted when she got them."

At one point in the story, the then-32-year-old Kearns is quoted as saying: " I really believe that Johnson was picking a person he wanted to write about him. People say he was in love with me and things like that. Partly that's true. But it was much more serious than that."

Here is another excerpt from Sally Quinn’s 1974 article

"Johnson was terribly possessive of her time, more and more as he came closer to death. She was seeing many men at this point in her life but had no real attachments until she met Richard Goodwin six months before Johnson's death."

One time Doris Kearns gave a lecture and said that Lyndon Johnson had compared her to his mother. [LBJ's mother was quite the enabler of him; as was Lady Bird.] When Kearns comments became public and appeared in print, LBJ said:

"So I'll just take the knife out of my heart and close up the wound, and we'll have you back here and we won't look back in pride or shame. We'll just start from here and we'll go on with your book without Parade. We're both still alive and that's what counts.”

Kearns has later admitted that Lyndon Johnson used to crawl into bed with her and just talk, but with nothing else going on....

As for me, I am not buying that nothing else went on. The Doris Kearns case is just another example of Lyndon Johnson's ability to manipulate people and even turn them into sychophants protecting his legacy decades later. Jack Valenti would be another good example.

Doris Kearns Goodwin: "I got to know this crazy character [Lyndon B. Johnson] when I was only 23 years old.... He's still the most formidable, fascinating, frustrating, irritating individual I think I've ever known in my entire life.” [Academy of Achievement June 1996 interview, p.1]

Doris Kearns also told authors Richard Harwood and Haynes Johnson about her relationship with LBJ in an interview that Sally Quinn refers to:

"They both took copious notes. In the interview Kearns told the reporters that her relationship with President Johnson was extraordinarily complicated, that she was still having trouble placing it in perspective, that she was troubled about how to handle her personal relationship with Johnson when she published her own book.

“She told them that the essence of their relationship was that LBJ was in love with her, that he ‘pressed me very hard sexually the first year,’ that he courted her aggressively, that he asked her to marry him, that he was jealous of other men in her life."

[Sally Quinn, Washington Post, 8/24/75 "A Tale of Hearts and Minds"]

My comment: Really, this kind of behavior from Lyndon Johnson was typical. It is how he behaved his whole life, and I don't just mean sexually. I am referring to his narcissism, neediness, ability to manipulate people, ability to turn folks into sycophants and slaves and have them do things they would not normally do.

I guess this just reproves the old saying that women love power; even if power is an old bloated, craggy man and a paranoid, mendacious, delusional nut job.

Here is an email to me from a Harvard alum and a nationally known author:

I was a graduate student at Harvard in the Political Science Department when Kearns was writing her LBJ book — the gossip at Harvard was always that she was LBJ’s lover — Kearns was first and foremost an opportunist — if sleeping with LBJ advanced her career, I doubt she hesitated.


1.      Mark Groubert says:

February 1, 2013 at 10:20 pm

Mr. Morrow is correct. Doris Kearns Goodwin told a mutual friend of ours that she had sex with Lyndon Baines Johnson. Her husband Richard Goodwin was in the throws of his own self-admitted alcoholism at the time.
Two good books on LBJ’s dysfunction and his alcoholism: Power Beyond Reason: The Mental Collapse of Lyndon Johnson by D. Jablow Hershman and Lyndon B. Johnson: A Memoir by George Reedy.
