The keyword/phrase "authoritative reference" relates to, and is part of, the classification(s) listed below, as used in the text or auxiliary documents of the QUFD website and in Father Jerome's scientific writings.
philosophy of mind
theology of reality
Veil of Separation
Veil of Unknowing
The GENERAL CONTEXT of such use is:
The term refers to Jerome's association of any authoritative reference (including himself, when used as such) as a tool/factor of Satan's influence over humanity, in programming us to seek out authoritative references for answers instead of looking within oneself and obtaining such KNOWING through use of one's maturity of mind, in accessing that KNOWING which is available within Universal consciousness.
