About us



(1) VITAL, ORGANIC, NATURAL, WHOLESOME; refers to a way cooking and way of life.
(2) replaces the 1st syllable of selected words.
(3) replaces"me","you","my" with "I" (ex. inity, i self, iya, InI)
(5) the philosophical doctrine that all phenomena can be explained by natural causes and laws.
RIGHT/FORWARD speech eliminates you, me, we, they, etc., as divisive and replaces the same with the communal I (I&i). I&I embraces self and the congregation in unity within the Most I (High) in an endless cypher of inity (unity).


everything comes full cypher (360); within everyone is a trinity:(mind, body, soul) = 3 : knowledge, wisdom, and overstanding = 3 : sun, moon, earth = 3 :{3+3+3=9}. The 9th letter is I; a completion to ourselves;
