Part 1

Sophia's Transgression
September 01, 2015
Andalucia
 

 


Welcome to the investigation of an implex.

Implex: Intricate; entangled; complicated; complex. "The fable of every poem is... simple or implex. It is called simple when there is no change of fortune in it; implex, when the fortune of the chief actor changes from bad to good, or from good to bad."
Q Joseph Addison (1672 - 1719)

British essayist and poet of the Enlightenment

In this first installment of the three-part series on Lucifer/Sophia, I cover references to the "fallen angel" motif universally applied to Lucifer, and show how they actually describe the Aeon Sophia, the Pleromic goddess who fell from the heights of heaven (galactic center), according to the Gnostic star myth, the Fallen Goddess Scenario (FGS).

I first encountered the word "implex" in Hamlet's Mill by Santillana and von Dechend, in reference to certain astronomical motifs found in the lore of sidereal mythology, i.e., myth and legend associated with the starry constellations and individual stars.

 

I understand it to be an adjective,

"The story is implex," as well as a noun, "The figure of Lucifer presents an implex of uncertain, diverse, and conflicting components."

I list six components of the implex as initial talking points for the Lucifer/Sophia identity:
 

 

 


1 - Bible - "The Morning Star", one allusion in the Book of Isaiah
Translations: http://biblehub.com/isaiah/14-12.htm

Full passage:

12 "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer,[a] son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations!

13 For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north;

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.'

15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.

16 "Those who see you will gaze at you, And consider you, saying: ‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble, Who shook kingdoms,

17 Who made the world as a wilderness And destroyed its cities, Who did not open the house of his prisoners?'

This verse presents the sole occurrence of the name Lucifer in the Bible.

 

The Hebrew of the Old Testament (OT) does not use any equivalent to Lucifer: it says merely, "the son of dawn." Neither does that name appear in the Septuagint, the Greek-language version of the OT.

 

The name Lucifer shows up only in English-language versions where Christian-indoctrinated translators saw fit to insert it! Nevertheless, the passage clearly attributes to that "fallen angel" the motive to equal or excel the Most High God. Hence, Luciferian pride, hubris, the attempt to be equal to Divinity.

 

Later in the essay I will show how this theme appears on Gnostic material on the Wisdom Goddess Sophia, whose fall from heaven - her "transgression" - is attributed in some texts to the same motive: to equal or excel the supreme creator (Gnostic Originator), or to act on her own volition independent of higher cosmic powers.

The passage in Isaiah also clearly states the consequence of that so-called act of transgression: to be cast down into Hell.

 

Curiously, it does not specify that Lucifer is an angel but rather uses the Greek word for "man": anthropos. Note that anthropos in Greek denotes humanity, the human species, by contrast to androu, "male, man," denoting the male gender of the species.

 

Textually, the language of the Septuagint (Greek translation of the Hebrew OT) associates the fall of Lucifer with the fall of humanity.

 

This association makes no sense whatsoever if Lucifer is considered to be a mightily celestial being of light in the company of the supreme deity. It does however make perfect sense in the Gnostic perspective which relates the fall of Sophia to her overweening love and fascination for the human species, the anthropos.

Thus, the first instance of textual exegesis - looking exactly at what is written in "scripture" and disregarding first-, second-, and third-hand speculation ad nauseum about textual sources - clearly proves that the identification of Sophia with the supposed "fallen angel" merits close consideration.
 

 

 


2 - Red Dragon in Sky - The Book of Revelation Ch 12

Greek interlinear translation:

1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.

2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.

3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.

4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.

5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.

6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,

8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them[a] in heaven any longer.

9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Source

 

 

Verse 9:

the great dragon MEGAS DRAKON, that old serpent: OPHIS ARCHAIOS, called the Devil: DIABOLOS, and Satan: SATANAS. Four metonyms in sequence. Over-determination often occurs when the exact definition of a subject is uncertain.

Note that Lucifer is not named here, hence no textual identification of Lucifer the light-bearer with the dragon/serpent of Revelation.
 


Verse 3:

the great red dragon: DRAKON MEGAS PYRROS, having seven heads and ten horns: KEPHALAS HEPTA KAI KERATA DEKA.

 

The morphology of the red dragon in the sky of Ch. 12, v.3 is identical with that of the "Great Beast" TO MEGA THERION that arises from the sea in Ch 13, v 1. (These parallels are elucidated at length in the series, Gnostic Sabotage - three remaining talks in development.)

 

At no point does the text directly equate this "reptilian" figure to Lucifer, nor does it make any allusion that would support such an identification.

 


Conclusion:

Lucifer, considered as the lightning-like luminous angel who was cast down from heaven, is entirely absent from Revelation.

 

So is the Antichrist, as noted in the talks on Gnostic Sabotage. Christians who babble about Revelation and include these two figures go against scripture. They show complete ignorance of their own 'tradition.'

 

 


3 - The Koran - Iblis

It is We Who created you and gave you shape; then We bade the angels prostrate to Adam, and they prostrated; not so Iblis; He refused to be of those who prostrate.

 

(Allah) said:

"What prevented thee from prostrating when I commanded thee?" He said: "I am better than he: Thou didst create me from fire, and him from clay."

Quran, sura 7

(Al-A'raf) ayat 11-12 [14]

The angel Iblis shows immense pride, declaring himself superior to Adam.

 

For refusing to worship Adam, God (Allah, presumably) cursed Iblis to Jahannam, Hell/Purgatory, for eternity, but gave him a kind of reprieve until the Day of Judgment.

 

Iblis was complicit with God in the role of a satanic agent, an adversary who would use this time to lead men and women astray, and eventually into Hell.

 

In the logic of the Islamic mind, Iblis would in this way prove humanity's inferiority and so justify his act of defiance, his refusal to worship Adam. For refusing to abide by the will of God, Iblis was cast out of Heaven, and thereafter he was called "Shaytan" (Satan).

I would argue on Gnostic sources that Iblis in the Islamic narrative appears closer to Yaldabaoth, the lord archon, than to Lucifer. Far closer.

 

The Apocryphon of John (NHLE, p. 115-116, passages 19-21) describes the preterrestrial scene of confrontation between the archons and the image of humanity. There are difficult and puzzling features in this episode that require a penetrating exegesis with reference to some occult terms such as "plasmic double" and the "five-light array."

 

Setting those problems aside, the components in this text that apply to the legend of Iblis are as follows:

"The archontic powers became jealous... and [they saw] that his intelligence (of Adam: Anthropos) was greater than the lord archon.

 

The archons recognized that [the first man] was luminous, that he [Adam/Anthropos] could think better than they could, and that he was radiant by design. And when they looked upward to his image, the archons saw that the intelligence of the human was superior to theirs.

 

And the epinoia of the light was in him [the human creature], the power by which he was to awaken his thinking."

The gist of these lines is clear: Anthropos is superior to the Archons, as Adam is superior to Iblis.

 

Hence, the identification of Iblis goes to the archon overlord, the Demiurge, and not to Lucifer. The Iblis passage in the Koran is not about Lucifer. Like all the other material in the Koran, it is highly derivative, reflecting themes and fragments appropriated from Near Eastern mythologies.

 

Appropriated without understanding, I must add...
 

 

 


4 - The Valentinian Spin NHC XI, 2
See NHLE, p 481 ff.

 

NHC with a Roman numeral refers to the tractate in the Gnostic Coptic Library. NHLE refers to the Nag Hammadi Library in English, the standard translation.

This text is so heavily damaged and obscurely written that no exact and explicit language concerning the reason for Sophia's separation from the Pleroma can be drawn from it.

 

No problem for scholars, though. In their commentaries, the experts routinely state what cannot be found in the actual text, but is merely implied - if that - and back it up by citing other sources on Valentinian doctrine, mainly from the heresiologists, the first Christian ideologues who argued against the Gnostic.

 

For example, Ireneaus:

This passion (enthumesis) of Sophia, they say, consisted in a desire to search into the nature of the Father; for she wished, according to them, to comprehend his greatness.

By extrapolation, Sophia wanted in some manner to equal the level of the Father (Propater), the Originator, source of all the Aeons.

 

Or to comprehend his nature so that she could imitate it, or compete with it, something along those lines. Such is the Luciferian quality of hubris, prideful excess or striving beyond one's station. By some accounts, this striving resulted in expelling the Aeon Sophia out of the Pleroma.

But was the expulsion due to an act of transgression for which she was rejected, cast out of the celestial company?

 

This interpretation implies a moral fault on the part of the Wisdom Goddess. Valentinus engaged in compromising views with the Christians he wished to influence and even lead. Guilt and punishment are inherent to the Judeo-Christian worldview but entirely lacking in the Gnostic perspective.

 

My extrapolation of the FGS - developed in detail in some briefings of the Gaian Navigation Experiment - does not attribute Sophia's plunge to a fault of any kind, for which she would be punished, but to the extremity of her passion.

 

Moreover, there is not the slightest indication in the Gnostic materials that the supreme deity beyond the Aeons, the Originator, would punish anyone, human or divine, for anything.

A Valentinian Exposition states explicitly what is often regarded as another key factor in Sophia's Luciferian hubris:

she acted unilaterally, without a consort. Doing so, she defied the wish or will of the Originator "not to allow anything to happen in the Pleroma except by a syzygy".

(passage 36, NHLE)

Fine, that is clear enough.

 

But nowhere do Gnostic writings give the slightest suggestion that the Originator would punish or expel any Aeon who did not abide by that principle, dyadic emanation.

At this point, the textual exegesis establishes a clear distinction between the FGS and the standard Lucifer mythologies, which all assume a factor or punishment, chastisement, expulsion.

 

Such factors merely reveal the Judeo-Christian spin that has been given to the received materials that adumbrate the fall of the Wisdom Goddess.

 

 

 


5 - Didymus the Blind - Sophia's "Fall"

Conventional legends about Lucifer always state that the "fallen angel" was "cast out of heaven."

 

The Fallen Goddess scenario says that Sophia plunged due to her enthusiasm, enthumysis. Her bold, overweening passion for the human experiment caused her to become enmeshed in it.

 

This point is unique to Gnostic cosmology and represents the singular element in the FGS that invites the empathy of humans. The power of that narrative convinces by its scope and its astonishing detail, but it compels by the call to empathy for the Wisdom Goddess. Thus it captures the minds and hearts of human animals in the way no other story can.

So what remains for textual evidence pertinent to the theme of Sophia's so-called transgression?

A book privately published by the Hermetic Library in Amsterdam, From Poimandres to Jacob Bohme: Gnosis, Hermetism, and the Christian Tradition (Pelikan, 2000) cites an extremely rare source: the commentary of the Alexandrian theologian Dydymus the Blind (ca. 313 - 398), in De Trinitate III, 42:

Valentinus taught that the last of the thirty Aeons is androgyne and that is Sophia. She wanted to see the highest god and was repelled by his Splendor; (hence) she fell out of the heavens (pleroma).

This is an extremely rare instance where the Aeon is actually, literally said to fall. I submit this passage as textual evidence for my rock-solid restoration of the Fallen Goddess Scenario.

Consider the syntax here, introducing the fall or betrayal meme, and stating that Sophia fell from inability to behold the splendour of the Originator. Well, that is one opinion.

  • Was she in consequence repelled, rejected?

  • But how can the Divine Source reject anything to which it gives rise?

  • And what does it mean, in any case, to be repelled by divine splendor?

  • Is this language not yet another clue to the spin of Judeo-Christian theology, attributing unworthiness and guilt to transactions among divine beings?

I argue that no Aeonic divinity was ever cast out of heaven for offending the supreme source, the Originator.

 

Rumor has it that Lucifer was "cast down from heaven" and did a lot of evil things, presumably trying to prove he was equal to the highest god. (See ahead, Part 2 on the Nephilim.) This spin makes Lucifer an evil-doer who leads humans into sinful ways.

 

But the Gnostic materials state shows that it is the archons and not Lucifer who did these evil things, or tried to do them, or claimed to have done them when they in fact did not.

 

The Lucifer story covers and conceals the evil influence of the archons who propagate that story in the minds of those who do not look at it critically and lack the gnostic intel to deconstruct or decode it, while at the same time it conceals the true identity of the light-bearer.

 

See how the implex grows:

"when the fortune of the chief actor changes from bad to good, or from good to bad."

The citation above exemplifies one of dozens of examples that any responsible scholar has to find and scrutinize before pronouncing a view of Lucifer.

 

Janice Barcelo and countless others fail to come close to such investigation, and do not even pretend to try:

 

 

 


 


Conclusions

  • There is no Luciferian evil entity.
     

  • The true Lucifer is Sophia.
     

  • Her story is slandered and distorted in the popular legend of Lucifer.
     

  • Lucifer, the light-bringer, was originally a name for the Aeon Sophia herself.
     

  • She brings the Organic Light to the natural world, and she brings enlightenment to the human mind when human animals encounter her using the telestic method of questioning.
     

  • The Organic Light is the luminosity of the earth itself, where Sophia abides in material immanence.


 

 

6 - The Presence of the Anthropos

Popular versions of the Lucifer myth present a distortion and cover for the Valentinian teaching about the fall of the Wisdom Goddess.

 

In this version, the Aeon Sophia sought to be equal to the Originator, the power beyond all the Aeons. So far, so good, but now consider a motif from the Iblis legend of Islam:

Lucifer refused to prostrate himself before Allah's human creation, Adam.

Even though this legend portrays the Demiurge or archon overload, Yaldabaoth, the motif of prostrating before Adam links Lucifer in heaven to the Anthropos, the human archetype, and this link in turn points back to the Gnostic narrative.

Several cosmological texts in the NHC describe the presence of the Anthropos observed by the Pleromic Aeons, even before the earth forms and the human species emerges upon it.

 

The Aeons behold the image (ikon) of the anthropos from their seat at the galactic core, and Sophia herself beholds it, and converses with it, when she finds herself stranded in the galactic arms (Kenoma).

 

She shames the lord archon by declaring that "at the consummation of your works" (archontic deception) "that luminous child" will defeat the alien powers.

Recall that the OT Greek in Isaiah uses the word anthropos for the fallen angel: as if to say, not that it was a man, a single member of the male gender, but it was humanity itself. But clearly mankind is not the fallen angel. In Gnostic teaching, humanity does not fall from heaven or from grace.

 

Sophia does. Yes, but in doing so she carries with her the image of humanity she held in divine conception when she and Thelete designed the human genome.

 

It is as if the Aeon is an architect who holds in mind the complete, detailed image of a building to be constructed, or a composer, like Mozart or Scriabin, who could hold the entirety of a symphony in mind, note for note, before composing it on paper.

The presence of the anthropos is a mytheme associated with Lucifer even in the distorted and appropriated materials such as the Koran. With the FGS, Sophia and the anthropos are always associated, sharing the same fate - here and now, the same planet.

 

It follows that elucidation of the Sophia/Lucifer identity would be attained in close parallel to the identity of the Anthropos, PETELIOS RHOME in Coptic, "ultimate humanity".

To conclude, I cite from The Gnostic Avenger, a long essay consisting in part of a refutation of Karen King's Christian spin on the The Gospel of Mary of Magdala, a study of a brief, fragmentary Gnostic text attributed to Mary Magdalene. (You can find it in the NHLE, pp 523 - 527, tucked in at the end.)

"The image of the true Human within" is not, and has never been, copyrighted to Christianity.

 

I would argue that the term "true Human" (Coptic PETELEIOS RHOME) in King's translation of the Gospel of Mary is an expression of the Anthropos doctrine of the Gnostics, the Mystery teaching on the pre-terrestrial origin of humanity, not the divine redeemer.

"Scholars who use Gnostic material to revisit and revalorize Christian doctrines rarely acknowledge the originality of their sources. Marvin Meyer fares a little better than King in attempting to put Gnostic writings "into language that is meant to be inclusive… [using] non-sexist terms and phrases."

 

Meyer uses "Child of Humanity" rather than the familiar "Son of Man." The consequent shift of language can be startling.

 

For instance, The Secret Book of James says, "Blessed are those who have spread abroad the good news of the Son before he descended to Earth." Meyer renders it: "Blessed three times over are those who were proclaimed by the Child before they came into being."

 

This language comes close to denoting the Anthropos, the numinous genetic template of the human species projected from the galactic core of the Pleroma, thus giving some idea of what Magdalene would really have been teaching.

 

(Note: Meyer also incorporates Mystery jargon, "three times over," referring to the status of hierophant, e.g., Hermes Trismegistos; hence he implies that the identity of the Child or authentic humanity is a matter of initiated knowledge.)

"But Meyer almost loses the genuine non-Christian message he wants to capture. "The Son before he descended to Earth" is the Anthropos projected from the Pleroma before the Earth emerged, understood in Gnostic terms, but sounds dangerously like the Incarnation in Christian terms.

 

The substitution of Child for Son humanizes the language of the text but verges away from the Mystery teaching on the Anthropos."

In their time and setting, the telestai of the Mysteries were not allowed to bring forth to the world at large the true pre-terrestrial identity of humanity.

 

They were suppressed, murdered, and driven into exile before they even had a chance to do so.

 

Perhaps now, in our time and setting, in this crucial moment (September 2015: Venus Lucifer rising in the east), that identity will emerge as the image of Lucifer is recognized, restored, and - at long last - liberated.




 

 

 



Part 2

The Satanic Distortion
September 02, 2015
Andalucia
 

 

 

 

 

To delve further into the Sophia/Lucifer implex, let's consider two instances of alleged evil entities often associated the fallen angel motif:

 

 


Enter the Nephilim

Septuagint, Greek-language Old Testament: Genesis 6:4.

4 Now the giants were upon the earth in those days; and after that when the sons of God were wont to go in to the daughters of men, they bore children to them, those were the giants of old, the men of renown.

The Greek word is gigantes, "giants." In the Hebrew the word is Naphil, thought to be a derivative of Hebrew verbal root n-ph-l, "fall". Hence, fallen ones, gigantic fallen entities.

 

In the Book of Enoch these entities are called the Watchers, or have been identified as such by many scholars.

VI, v 1-2 And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters - And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another:

'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.'

Note the derivation for "angels, children of heaven":

Aramaic IYR, plural IYRIM. Theodotian trans: ir; from the root of Heb. 'er, "awake, watchful"; Greek egregoroi. Slavic transliteration, Grigori, "Watchers", "those who are awake, who observe or guard", "Watcher" is a term used in connection with biblical angels alleged to have fallen from heaven.

Note that the Watchers are said to have intercourse with terrestrial women.

 

I will return to that theme below...

 

Digression

The Book of Enoch was discovered in Ethiopia in 1773 by the Scottish explorer, James Bruce.

 

It is written in a mish-mash of Aramaic and Hebrew. Subsequently, two other versions were found. Interestingly, James Bruce is also the man who four years earlier discovered a manuscript of 78 papyrus leaves in Coptic, Arabic, and Ethiopic, called "The Books of Jeu and the Untitled Text."

 

I have worked extensively on that material during studies I made at the theological library of the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium.

 

I used the translation of Violet MacDermot, author of a book called The Fall of Sophia which is preserved in the Ambergane archives. Typically, she gives the Sophia myth a Christian redemptive spin.

The Bruce Codex as it is called is a major work of pre-NHC Coptic literature, but extremely dense and confusing, loaded with indecipherable metaphysical jargon. In some passages, however, it describes the activity of the paralemptors ("receivers") upon which I have commented here and there.

I take the paralemptors to be archons who defected to the side of Sophia and the mother sun, Sabaoth.

 

I actually met one once in a lucid dream. They are female archontic forms complete with something like a genital slit. The one I met was as sleek and elegant as a Brancusi sculpture and smelled deliciously of nutmeg. Gaian sorcery is such a kick.

So, the gigantes - egregores - "Sons of God" - fallen angels, what have you, are said to have copulated with the daughters of men, earth-bound women.

 

Either the progeny of these fallen angels, or the angels themselves, or both, were said to be "the giants of old, men of renown." Read this to say that the fallen angels became men. If they were not men in the first place.

 

They became mighty hunters like Nimrod, magicians, and leaders of nations.



This ancient plot-factor points to a key episode in the prehistory of the prehistory of the human species, which I have called the Chthonian Romance. You may read the Commentaries on the Translations from the Andromedan at length to get this narrative, but you will have to plow through the poetry to get to the commentaries.

 

Slokas One and Two are particularly pertinent to the Nephilim or Watchers.

 

Note there is more than one file URL for the commentaries. Below I cite from this material, but first, a comment on the word Nephilim, from the Hebrew root n-p-hl, "fall, descent". I propose a conflation with the Greek word, nephele, "cloud, vapor", and the Latin word nebula, as well as the Proto-Indo-European (PIE) root, nebh-, "cloud, nebulous form."

 

By this conflation, Nephilim can be taken to mean "cloud men, nebulous men who descend from above." The Commentaries describe at length the origin and actions of these mysterious entities.

Commentary on Sloka Three:

The chthonian romance of the Sidhe with the Orion Men, the Watchers and Nephilim of Biblical legend, spawned grotesque mutations, arrogant macho demons at first, then a long lineage of somatic-plasmatic hybrids (Zeus, the older and younger Dionysos, Orpheus, Tantalus, Sisyphus and many, many more).

 

Over many generations the Orion Men were absurdly arrogant in their tyrannical assertions of power and their presumption of god-like stature.

 

The intercourse of the Sons of God with the daughters of men devolved for eons before their intercourse hardened into the death-lock of procreation and the initial thrill, the primal attraction, was lost.

Commentary on Sloka One:

The Men from Orion were stalkers attracted to the hunting magic found uniquely in the Gaian system, cradle of myriad species.

 

Their anatomical type was A-form, Alpha variant of the Anthropos, the Aeonic template for homo sapiens. (Hence, perhaps, the off-putting term "Alpha-male.")

 

Their body-form was originally plasmatic, later to co-mutate with somatic doubles in the Gaian habitat and finally to fossilize in the fully somatic, physical, organ-bound body of the hapless lummox, Australopithicus.

 

The Men first appeared as odd roiling clouds in the upper atmosphere, gaseous blotches menacing the ivory-domed pavilions of the Gaian menageries, fog-like monstrosities, turbulent Earth Divers of the Maidu, copycat avatars of the Vishnavaite Boar of Heaven, Nainema to the Uitoto of Columbia, Lightning Brothers of the Kakadu, "They-who-are-appearance-only" with acca-threads like succulent Hawaiian finger-pulp, inchoate Nephilim Dads, Mist Men of the Icelandic Eddas, engorged nebula-males who coupled with the daughters of earth according to the quaint taint of Biblical idiom.

In Tibetan lore derived from indigenous Bon Po shamanism the expression "opening the door of the sky" (nam mkha' sgo ‘byed),

"designates ascent into the celestial sphere by means of a magical rainbow light cord (dmu)... The dmu cord is the symbol of communication between earth and sky: this word is also found in divinatory rites, in which it connotes ‘the cord for ascending to the sky.' "

(Orofino, Tantra in Practice)

The ascent is possible because it had been preceded by a descent: the Orion Men descended from M42 on a streamer of the Aeonic template for the human species.

 

Their bodies were huge emulsions that stained the skies, produced violent weather and engendered stunning displays of thunder and lightning. They were remembered as "storm-gods."

"According to ancient narratives, the dmu cord was used by the early kings to descend to earth and then re-ascend to heaven after their death".

(ibid.)

In Egyptian religion, rituals of sacred kingship were associated uniquely with Orion, Asar, the Skywalker.

 

Shahs, emperors and pharaohs, all ancient theocrats, were descendants of hunter-shamans who were in turn late plasmic-somatic hybrids of the Nefhilim, the nebula-men.

 

They were universally identified with Orion because they came from there, not from the stars in the belt but from Trapezium in the "sword," the phallic detail.

"And kingship descended from heaven," says the Enuma Elish, but the text is corrupt, or it has been read corruptly.

The institution of kingship did not descend from heaven, the candidates for it did. "And the royal lines descended from heaven" is closer to the true meaning of this famous quote.

 

"Royal lines" came to signify biological inheritance, but originally it indicated the plasmatic streamers, acca-cords.

So, call them the Nephilim Dads.

 

Over many eons, they introduced or induced biological reproduction with the exclusively female population of the earth. They founded the theocratic lines, as evidenced by solid evidence in myth and folk-lore.

 

I rest my case that the Nephilim were the gigantic nebulous plasma-bodies of the male component of the Anthropos template deposited in Orion Nebula, which was sheared in the final stage of Sophia's terrification, her metamorphosis into the material planet.
 

 

 


Fallen Angel Magic

Before departing from this topic, two short observations.

First, the desire of off-planet entities to copulate with the "daughters of men," represented in the myth of the Watchers, occurs as a theme in the Gnostic Coptic material where the archons are shown lusting after Eve.

 

From The Hypostasis of the Archons:

And the Archons became attracted to Eve, the primal woman. They said to one another, "Come, let us sow our seed in her," and they pursued her.

 

And she laughed at them for their witlessness, and their blindness; and within reach of their clutches, she turned into a tree, and left before them a shadowy reflection of herself.

The archons who lusted after Eve, primal woman or the example of the Gaian Sidhe (Shuh-HEE), but she escaped their embrace.

 

However, she did not escape the embrace of the Orion Men. Moreoever, the life of the Gaian women was profoundly altered by the magical arts taught to them by their nebular counterparts.

 

Arts of cosmetic disguise, make-up, herbal magic, seduction techniques (stalking). Again, the Book of Enoch:

VII. 1-2. And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them, and they taught them charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants. - And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells.

Consider for a moment a wonderful lesson embedded in the narrative:

The hunters from Orion collected trophies and indicators, and often disguised themselves as plants or animals.

The Sidhe knew nothing of such arts and did not need them.

 

But the Orion men applied their stalking and disguising arts to entice and entertain the women.

"They taught them charms and enchantments."

They, the Orion men, not the archons or the Watchers - but then the O-Men were the Watchers, weren't they?

They taught women cosmetic adornments and seduction magic, and when the men, under archontic influence, finally introduced theocracy as a system of authority and male domination, the women used those tools of enchantment and seduction against them, and against the archons, in order to maintain their sovereign power and uphold a balance of power in the social order.

 

When the cults of sacred sexuality were destroyed - remember Marianthe Diopthrides, the Great Whore of Babylon - that balance was lost. And has yet to be recovered.

The correction and truthful telling of this vast tableau of events in the prehistory of the prehistory of the human species is a responsibility I place upon my students. Learn the true story by heart and work out how to tell it.
 

 

 


Baphomet = Sophia

As you consider and compare these themes, bear in mind the particular spin of the term implex, as distinct from complex. The latter is a mix or conflation of various elements, some of which may be narrative - the Oedipus Complex, for example.

 

But an implex involves the "satanic" factor of distortion, playing one thing against another and even making something into its opposite so that,

"the fortune of the chief actor changes from bad to good, or from good to bad."

Such has been the case with the mythic image of the Aeon Sophia.

 

Once that image was almost totally eradicated with the suppression of the Mysteries, remnants of it came to be encrusted in various myths and legends, but always in such a way that the residual clue to the identity of Sophia was distorted and inverted, making her look like the opposite of what she is.

The figure of Lucifer warps before your eyes, at times morphing into Satan, the Devil, represented by Baphomet, but Baphomet is a satanic distortion of Sophia.

In this unique case, the memory of the Eonic Mother that inheres in the human psyche has also been distorted in a way that recalls the implantation of false memories in trauma-based mind control.

 

Yes, it has been done to humans in that way, through religious indoctrination, the treat of hellfire and damnation (remember the Puritans), and more.

 

But in the larger picture, humans have done it to themselves. They have turned away from the Wisdom Goddess out of their inability to surrender to her immediate awesome presence, and due to an endemic toxic reaction to that presence, biophobia. In other words, human animals are afraid to face the naked power of life in full revelation at its source, the presence of the planet itself. I shall return to this comment later in these essays.

In evidence of this twisty process, I present the image of Baphomet.

 

You need to know that although it is based on that psychotic fiction of Judeo-Christian indocrination, originating with the evil goat-man (Pan demonized), this massively displayed image is a late production from the hand of the Alphonse Constant, aka Eliphas Levi (1810 - 1875).

 

Constant was a charlatan, defrocked priest, and child-molester who set himself up as one of the leading lights of the Occult Revival in the 19th Century. The image of Baphomet currently taken for a hideous portrait of Lucifer-Satan comes from his book, Transcendental Magic.

 

And what an insufferable crock of bloated nonsense that is.

Here I provide a link to the work of Hugh Schonfield, a Gnostic scholar upon whom I relied in writing Not in His Image: 'Baphomet: The Atbash Cipher Theory.'

In short, Schonfield showed that the name Baphomet encodes the name of Sophia. Bear in mind that when this encoding was done, the image you see of Baphomet in Levi's rendering did not exist.

 

It comes very late in European history. Nevertheless, medieval depictions and narratives presenting the Devil/Lucifer/Satan implex in the image of a goat-man wth cloven feet, horns, and bat-like wings (fallen angel gear) were in circulation since around the 7th Century.

 

The works of Jeffrey Burton Russell are unexcelled on this topic.

 

He proves that Christians invented the Devil by inverting the Pagan nature god Pan and adding the wings. In that way, they enforced their psychotic belief that the natural world is evil and throbbing with demons who want to torture human animals, or seduce them into committing sin - mainly, sexual pleasure.

Again, I submit that this attitude, which is to this day massively subscribed and enforced at the global level, belies biophobia which itself is due to the inability to surrender to the beauty and power of "Mother Nature," the Aeon Sophia in material immanence. She, the greatest witch of all.

But that deceit is over, and there is an emergent force of revelation operating on the planet and breaking into the social mind, the exopsyche, due to the eruptive force of Sophia's Correction:

Revelation 13:

[11] And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

[12] And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

[13] And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

[14] And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

[15] And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

You see, Revelation itself says that those who do not worship the Great Beast - Matrix of Animal Powers, whose image (ikon) is the Shakti Cluster - should be killed.

 

That assertion stands writ large in holy scripture.

 

Figure it...
 

 

 


Daemonic Delight

"Eros is a mighty daemon."

"But who then, Diotima," Socrates said, "are the lovers of wisdom, if they are neither the wise nor the foolish?" "A child may answer that question," she replied; "They are those who are in a mean between the two; Eros is one of them.

 

For wisdom (sophia) is a most beautiful thing, and Eros is of the beautiful; and therefore Eros is also in the nature of a philosopher: or lover of wisdom, and being a lover of wisdom is in a mean between the wise and the ignorant...

 

Such, my dear Socrates, is the nature of authentic Eros."
Diotima to Socrates, in The Symposium

In conclusion, consider the following terms:

  • Lucifer: light bearer. Another name for the Aeon Sophia who brings Pleromic luminosity to the earth and who endowed the Anthropos with the luminous epinoia.
     

  • Devil: any radiant entity, related to deva, Sanskrit dyaus
     

  • Diabolos: adversary, opponent. A title or role, not an entity.
     

  • Satan: adversary, opponent - a role, not an entity: i.e., lawyer
     

  • demon: according to Christians, an infernal supernatural creature in the service of Lucifer/Satan/Devil, thought to inhabit the interior of the material planet
     

  • daemon or daimon: in the Pagan classic world, a guiding spirit, one who inspires and advises, as the daemon of Socrates. comparable to a tutelary deity in Tibetan Buddhism, i.e., dakini.

Finally, consider the etymology of the word worship: literally, to acquire worth or value. Worthship.

Old English worðscip, wurðscip (Anglian), weorðscipe (West Saxon) "condition of being worthy, dignity, glory, distinction, honor, renown," from weorð "worthy" (see worth) + -scipe (see -ship). Sense of "reverence paid to a supernatural or divine being" is first recorded c. 1300.

To worship is to derive a sense of value for oneself by subjection to a power considered superior to oneself, and holding authority which can in some cases be transferred to the worshipper.

 

Worshipping makes people feel worthy, it enhances their self-worth. Such is the great deceit of worship. Those who already feel their own worth (self-love) do not need to worship anything. I would say they abhor the notion of any kind of religious worship.

Now compare the term reverence.

To revere: From French révérer, from Latin infinitive of vereor ("to fear").

So to revere is also to fear. Back to biophobia.

But can there be reverence without fear? Sure, call it adoration. To adore: late Middle English: via Old French from Latin adorare ‘to worship', from ad- ‘to' + orare ‘speak, pray'. Hence, to express praise and awe, to openly vocalize it - the proper and natural attitude of a sane person toward the planet earth.

 

Revelation rephrased:

And he [the handler] exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to ADORE the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

You are wondering what the wound is, right? Coming in Part Three far below.

In Planetary Tantra you worship no one, not even the Planetary Animal Mother. But you revere the maternal terrestrial Aeon in all her forms and ways. Such an act of reverence has to be expressed, articulated, spoken and stated in an open manner, every day in every possible situation.

 

Not to persuade or convert anyone, but to demonstrate the very great fact that the adoration you direct to the local cosmic source of life vitally upholds your life. And it does something else as well.

 

By that adoring reverence each human animal comes into the strength to accept a singular and supreme opportunity:

to enact the role of the lesser beast, the lamb from the earth.

More specifically, this is the opportunity to handle the power of the Great Beast, the Animal Mother. Handle it.

In conclusion:

"They worship Lucifer."

"Hollywood is run by Satanists."

"They are Luciferian Jews who worship Satan."

etc, ad nauseum...

How many times have you heard such accusations and claims?

 

This talk is the blather of ignorant dupes who merely hype and mystify that they purport to expose. They never present tangible proof for these accusations. They are like Puritans in Salem making false and hysterical allegations of witchcraft.

 

Those who expound in this manner, declaring that they will expose the evil predators among us, swamp the reasoning mind with circumstantial evidence, guilt by association, symbolic-associative fugues, and implausible testimonies. Behind these accusations lurks the ever-present fear that the satanic entity pictured as Baphomet does actually, literally, physically exist.

 

What a con. I invite him to show himself! I call the Devil to appear to me! I advise you to do the same.

But before you do, be sure to listen to my DISCLAIMER in the oral commentary!

The Devil is commonly lumped with Satan and Lucifer, pictured as a hideous figure who presides over Hell. The horned goat man was Pan, the Pagan nature god. Judeo-Christianity turned nature evil and made Pan into the Devil by inversion. Lucifer is often pictured as bat-winged with horns.

 

The wings give the game away. Pan did not have wings, except perhaps metaphorically speaking, when he was cavorting with a nymph.

 

The wings of pleasure, orgastic release.
 

 


Claude Michele Clodion

Satyr and Nymph, 1780
 


By the mere act of adding wings to Pan, that figure of daemonic delight becomes the image of evil, deceit, corruption, a malicious fiend fallen from a higher station.

 

The inversion of the implex is massive, but equally so can be the re-inversion, setting the story right and showing that Lucifer is Sophia, the fallen goddess of Aeonic luminosity. It takes a "satanic conversion" within the sytax of human imagination to produce Satan.

 

Without it, there is no Satan, no agent of evil, literal or imaginary. The actual satanic adversary working against humanity is the off-planet father god, the Demiurge, Ialdabaoth, the lord archon.

 

It is impossible to humanity to recognize and defeat this alien enemy as long as its identity remains concealed behind the psychotic fiction of Satan-Lucifer-Devil.

Be certain on this point:

 The power of that psychotic fiction operates nefariously in the human mind in ways that can only be overcome and reversed by a superior power, by true counter-magic, biophilia overcoming biophobia, pleasure and delight overcoming pain and suffering, self-love overcoming guilt and shame.

"The rites of the devotees of the Adya Kali are a pleasure to perform."

Part 3

The Ascension of Lucifer
06 September 2014

 

 

Itzpapalotl

Obsidian Butterfly

Aztec War Goddess
 

 

An alternative title for this third and concluding part of the three-part essay on the Sophia/Lucifer implex could be: Lucifer Liberated.

 

This mythological theme (mytheme) now factors critically into Sophia's Correction as it unfolds as an imaginative event in the endopsyche of the human species.

 

By this I mean, at the imaginative level Correction must find some kind of definition that allows it to propagate with discernible force in the human subconscious, such that it breaks into the exopsyche, the realm of social discourse, that which can be spoken, defined, named, discussed.

So far - five seconds into Correction and counting - that is not the case, due to a number of factors.

 

First, the identity of Sophia has been kept from human imagination for centuries. Her story was eradicated, almost to the point of total destruction of evidence or trace.

 

Her figure as light-bearer to the earth inheres in the narrative, central to the story:

She is a plume of Pleromic luminosity in material immanence in the body of the earth.

With the annihilation of the Mysteries and the murder and exile of the telestai, that statement became transgressive, placed under a taboo.

 

It was forbidden to speak of it, or to speak of those who would have known it to be so from direct experience. Indeed, it even became taboo to mention that they, the telestai, had ever existed.
 

 

Historical note for the Annals of PT

In his first speech to the council of bishops, Pope Francis made an extraordinary digression from the subject matter and pronounced the dreaded G-word, gnostico in Italian.

 

He even went so far to say that the Gnostics were right, they had actually found the direct way to experience the Divine. This speech was broadcast in forty languages across the world.

 

The event happened shortly after the resignation of Benedict II (Ratzinger) which itself was signaled by V-shaped lightning striking the Vatican dome.

 

Benedict resigned at the very moment that the Italian version of Not in His Image appeared on the bookstands in Italy.

"How you are fallen - like lightning - from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! Isaiah ."

14:12.

 

 


The "fall" of Lucifer has often been compared to a lightning strike.

 

This analogy directs attention from the Lucifer material to the Sophianic narrative. The "lightning" is actually the plume of Pleromic luminosity discharged from the galactic core due to Sophia's impetuous plunge into the three-body experiment she dreamed for the Anthropos - the trimorphic protennoia.

Gnostic cosmological narrative confirms that certain analogies and tropes traditionally associated with Lucifer - for instance, the wish to equal the highest creative power, action taken contrary to divine will, and the celestial spectacle of Adam/Anthropos - become coherent and intelligible when applied to the narrative of Wisdom Goddess.

 

The true Lucifer is Sophia. Her current identical node revealed with the Terma of Gaia Awakening in August 2008 is Vajravilasi, "flirtatious lightning." That tacit identification came into definition years before the terton was able to elucidate the Sophia/Lucifer parallel.

Note also that the precious material alluding to Lucifer in Parzival of Wolfram von Eschenbach supports a direct equation of the Grail to the radiance of fallen angel.

 

Trevrizent to Parzival in Chapter 9: Those in the Company of the Grail:

live by a stone who nature is most pure. If you know nothing it shall be named to you here: lapsit exillis... That stone is also called the Grail.

(468-9)

Medieval legend, alluded but not specifically repeated in Wolfram's Parzival, held the Grail/Stone to be a jewel that fell from the crown of Lucifer when he was cast down from heaven.

 

Lapsit exillis is corrupt Latin that suggests "a stone fallen from heaven."

 

By "stone" read: a luminosity of material immanence, dense as stone.

That pearly stream across the midnight floor
is radiance that casts no shade, where Mystery
remade time and again returns the world to wonder.
 

The healing thrill laid right into sensation, the rapture
of knowing how it's done: all that a mind can be
and still be mindful of what it's going under.
 

Suchness, on touch alone, porosity immense,
each organ and each sense
in radiant suspense, the immanence like stone.
"In the Organic Light" (All Souls' Night)
Yeats Conversions

The Company of the Grail in Wolfram and other Medieval epics were the diaspora of the Mysteries, the survivors who had direct access to the epiphany of the Organic Light.

 

The Grail is most certainly the jewel light from Lucifer's crown, that is to say, the primary substance luminosity of the Aeonic Mother, not who fell to earth, but who plunged from heavean and became the earth.
 

 

 


Supernal Beauty

Another theme or trope associated with Lucifer is beauty.

 

Traditional accounts stress that "he" was a radiant angel of great beauty. With the Satanic inversion of this figure, Lucifer becomes a monstrous demon, often depicted in horror films.

 

One of countless versions:
 

 

 


Depictions of Lucifer as Satan ruling over the torture of sinners in Hell became widespread through the Middle Ages as a terror tactic of the Catholic Church.

 

The inversion from Lucifer/celestial angel/beautiful to Satan/infernal demon/horrible demonstrates the tendency of the human psyche to create its own demons from what it rejects, or is compelled to reject and fear under psychological pressure.

 

There is no basis in scripture to identify the fallen Lucifer with Satan in Hell. None at all. It comes about this way in part due to Christian ignorance and paranoid fabulation, but in a greater measure, through the mental and emotional distortion that must occur when the radiant beauty of the Divine Presence is shut out, feared and rejected.

 

This rejection is an aspect of the biophobia that afflicts the human species. Indeed, the key aspect.

As a nagual who directs shamanic journeys, I can attest to instances when the altered state induced by psychoactive plants brings the unitiated participant to a threshold state, a liminal zone. In that state, the typical resistance of the ego is diminished and the power of the Divine Presence begins to dawn...

 

At that moment, the uninitiated participant typically senses the approach of an unnamable force that gives the impression of intending to devour him or her.

 

Such an impression arises immediately prior to the epiphany of the Organic Light (OL). Fear of being consumed by some "demonic" power drives the witnesses away. They shut out what they fear will consume them. Often, they flee physically and try to hide somewhere.

Tragically, it turns out in some cases that those who wish to behold the Organic Light, the most beautiful sight known to the human species, cannot handle what comes to them announced by that vivid, uncanny sensation of being devoured. The OL is alive and acts like an animal. It feels animal-like in its approach to the human witness.

 

People flee its presence as they would flee the approach of Siberian tiger or a cobra. Shit, we gotta get outta here!

When the Mysteries operated as they were intended to do, the initiates beheld and held the Divine Presence, the Organic Light of the primary substance body of the Wisdom Goddess. They held it within human reach.

 

The effect of doing so was felt by those who did not reach the OL, or even knew nothing of its existence.

 

Because some human animals held the epiphany of the Light, others could be kept close to it without necessarily knowing that they were.

 

Inhabitants of the classical world respected and revered the Gnostic initiates for their service to society and for their character.

In his seminal work on Gnosticism, Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, G.R.S. Mead stated that,

"a persistent tradition in connection with all the great Mystery-institutions was that their several founders were the introducers of all the arts of civilization; they were either themselves gods or instructed in them by the gods...

 

They were the teachers of the infant races."

The initiates, as they were called,

"taught the arts, the nature of the gods, the unseen worlds, cosmology, anthropology, etc."

[Not in His Image]

The telestai were not only respected for their known achievements, which were far-reaching, they were also respected for what those in the world at large could not know, but did sense: their proximity to the planetary animal mother.

 

Several Gnostic scholars have observed that typical images of authority embodied in Pagan sculpture - such an the Emperor Augustus standing in a noble or "august" posture in flowing robes - derived from the actual body language of initiates of the Mysteries.

 

Those who were known to carry the "divine afflatus" were in reality, in the genuine cases, telestai who could access and uphold the supernal beauty of the Organic Light. I have said that standing in the presence of the Shakti Cluster feels like standing in a wind tunnel.

 

I offered this description in 2008, years before I discovered a comparable reference in the writings of the Roman orator, Cicero.

 

Consider the classical definition of afflatus coming from Cicero, who was a successful initiate:

Afflatus is a Latin term derived from Cicero (in De Natura Deorum - The Nature of the Gods) that has been translated as "inspiration"...

 

Literally, the Latin "afflatus" means "to blow upon/toward". It was originally spelt "adflatus," made up of "ad" (to) and "flatus" (blowing/breathing), the noun form of "fl?re" (to blow).

 

It can be taken to mean "to be blown upon" by a divine wind, not unlike its English equivalent "inspiration," which comes from "inspire," meaning "to breathe/blow onto".

Late in the Pagan era, it became fashionable for emperors who sought purely mundane renown to adopt the lofty air of the telestai.

 

Thus, they often underwent initiation, as attested by countless historical examples down to Julian the Apostate. However, this tactic was largely for outer show and did not prove success in beholding the Light.

 

For many of the pretenders, afflatus was merely self-inflation.

 

Even C.G. Jung suffered from the complex of self-inflation is his hapless attempt to reckon with direct contact with the Divine.

The guardians of the Mysteries always kept open the invitation for others to come into the presence of that light. At Eleusis and other sanctuaries of the Goddess around the Mediterranean Basis, they continually received neophytes for the epiphany of supernal beauty.

 

Neophytes who succeeded in beholding the Organic Light were greeted with the salutation,

"A kid, thou has fallen into milk."

 

 


The Luciferic Ray

Today, the supernal beauty of the fallen angel Lucifer is breaking through into the human mind.

 

What is it, but the beauty of the Wisdom Goddess herself?

 

Yes, it is that, or best considered to be a specific beam or shaft of that beauty. The Luciferic ray, you could say. (Leave "Luciferian" to those who claim to expose evil or Satanic agencies they believe to exist behind the stage of world events.)

 

The Luciferic ray can be compared to a narrow beam of light that glints through a window or passageway and catches your attention.

 

By "narrow beam" I mean that it affords a limited access or a specific channel of access to the radiant presence of the Aeon Sophia.

"How much beauty can you take?"

Apparently, in some cases I have witnessed, not so much. Perhaps that beauty, concentrated in a ray, will have a better chance breaking into the human mind.

The full epiphany of Sophia in Correction, breaking over the world, would require the concomitant human capacity to receive it, and hold it. That capacity is just not evident in a vast number of people. I emphasize the word capacity.

 

Seeing the Organic Light is not a question of worthiness.

 

In the Mysteries everyone was deemed worthy of a chance to behold the Organic Light, except for three cases:

  • those who committed murder for a selfish reason, not out of duty or self-defense

  • those who constantly lied, and those who exhibited a strong streak of envy in their character

Candidates were vetted on the basis of those three factors.

So, today, there has to be a sort of ray that leaks the radiant power of the Aeon Sophia into the human psyche in a manner proportionate with the lowered capacity to receive it. Lucifer provides that ray, perhaps. In any case, it is worth a try to see if the Sophia/Lucifer parallel might indeed serve for that purpose.

In a recent talk, I distinguished the hard option and the soft option for participation in Planetary Tantra.

 

The former involves commitment to the five front ranks of the Kalika War Party, the bands that exercise morbido and the option to kill.

 

To review my initial talk on morbido, go to nav briefing 91:

 

 

 

Source



The latter, the soft option, requires a commitment to spread the sacred narrative by outreach, introducing it whenever and wherever you can.

 

I mentioned some tactics for outreach, how to get to people and engage their attention in such a way that the disposition to learn the story can be addressed - if such a disposition exists.

The two main tactics are:

  1. activating the source prompt by the question, How would you contact the source (remote or local) of your life?
     

  2. Asking the trigger question, Is there ANY god capable of creating this world who would also inflict cruelty and punishment upon its inhabitants?

To which you can add a third:

  1. If you were an extra in a movie, and had a chance to take a starring role, would you do it? How about a starring role in the movie of life?

    COMING SOON: Witchwave - The Movie that Happens in Your Life.

I am sure you can come up with other sly tactics as well, but let's admit, these three openers are pretty stunning.

 

Such are the tactics that you would employ in your day-to-day life acting as members of "The Sophia Cult" who advocate publicly for the message of the Cult - not to recruit membership, but to spread the message. Remember, do not persist with anyone who does not show the disposition to learn. After a little probing you can generally determine if this disposition exists or not.

 

Don't persist with deadbeats and pretenders. Disregard social justice warriors, feminists, minority rights champions, juemongers, liberals, progressives, and all similar types of Marxist socialist dupes. They are Legion. Terminally infected with the emotional plague.

To return to the notion of the Luciferic ray:

You can detect early glimpses of the Luciferic ray breaking into the human mind already at the time Sophia began to awake in her lucid dream.

Two massive trends can be detected in the Romantic Movement from the late 18th century onward to its central moment around 1820.

 

First, the rise of "Gothic" literature or the horror genre, signaled by British author Ann Radcliffe (1764 - 1823), who single-handedly founded the genre. The link of the horror genre with Sophia's awakening is extremely tight and warrants close study.

When it is repressed, the supernatural both conceals and reveals itself in a fascination with horror. (See Supernatural Horror in Literature by H.P. Lovecraft.) The genre includes vampire stories and fictional accounts of witchcraft.

 

The Romantic Agony by Mario Praz (pronounced Pratz), one of my favorites in the Romanticism section of the Ambergane library, describes how the arch-Romantic Goethe was responsible for feeding interest in the vampire genre, including numerous works still read avidly to this day.

 

Praz makes the amazing observation that Goethe,

"had been the first to give literary form to the fearsome vampire legends," and "in the second half of the 19th century, the vampire becomes a woman, as in Goethe's ballad".

(p 78ff)

Behind the female vampire, vamps, succubi, sirens, witches, and decadent femmes fatales of the 19th century lurks the figure of Sophia, distorted by biophobia and religious perversion of natural human instincts into sins.

Today, right now, it becomes plausible that the horror genre could be commandeered to reveal the true Lucifer and the corresponding image of the infernal, vampiric woman. Search "witchcraft films" on YT and you find evidence of a possible revival of the genre of witch films.

 

Leading the movement is THE V V ITCH...

The second massive trend in Romanticism tracing back even earlier than the end of 18th Century is the tendency to portray Lucifer or Satan as a noble, heroic figure of great radiance and beauty. Many volumes have been written about the portrayal of the satanic figure in Paradise Lost of John Milton (1608 - 1674).

 

Milton, who was blind, dictated the poem to his daughter who wrote it down.

 

A typical commentary says:

Satan is the first major character introduced in the poem.

 

Formerly called Lucifer, he was the most beautiful of all angels in Heaven, and is a tragic figure who describes himself with the now-famous quote "Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven."

 

He is introduced to Hell after he leads a failed rebellion to wrest control of Heaven from God.

 

Satan's desire to rebel against his creator stems from his unwillingness to be subjugated by God and his Son, claiming that angels are "self-begot, self-raised," and thereby denying God's authority over them as their creator.

Satan is deeply arrogant, albeit powerful and charismatic. Satan's persuasive powers are evident throughout the book; not only is he cunning and deceptive, but he is also able to rally the fallen angels to continue in the rebellion after their agonizing defeat in the Angelic War.

 

He argues that God rules as a tyrant and that all the angels ought to rule as gods.

 

Though commonly understood to be the antagonizing force in Paradise Lost, Satan may be best defined as a tragic or Hellenic hero.
Wikipedia

The notion of rebellion against "God" permeates Romanticism.

 

In the Gnostic perspective, which the Romantics had no opportunity to access, such rebellion can be regarded as the human will asserting itself against the false creator god, the archontic pretender. The true enemy of humanity and the earth is the Demiurge, not Lucifer or Satan.

 

The works of William Blake (1757-1827, corresponding to the first phase of Sophia's dream fuge) also carry a powerful message of revolt against the authoritarian god of Judeo-Christianity.

 

In his long poems, Blake pits the heroic figure of Albion against Urizen, his name for the Demiurge. However, Blake is problematic due to his imagination being infected by Biblical imagery, as well as his naive attachment to the traditional profile of Jesus.

Many other examples of the Luciferic hero of Romanticism could be cited. The point here is, with only a few thousand people left living on the planet who have the disposition to follow such a crumb-trail of literary allusions, the heroic figure of the fallen angel rebel has to be preserved in popular media such as film and song.

 

Literary material such as I cite is the rare and privileged interest of the select few. The revival of the witchcraft genre is films is a positive sign. Even such poor fare as "Salem" contains clues pointing toward the ascension of Lucifer: by which I mean, raising the figure of Lucifer to its true and proper status.

 

This would happen by establishing Lucifer both in the identification with Sophia, and in the valorization of the rebellious hero type.

 

Such is the outrageous gambit I propose.
 

 

 


The Renaissance of Witchcraft

When the supernatural and irrational are banished from consciousness, they are not destroyed, rather, they become exceedingly dangerous.

The victims held beliefs compatible with the major features of the hoax, and that made them vulnerable.
George Hansen

The Trickster and the Paranormal

In his excellent book, Hansen covers a wide range of hoaxes and scares, including accusations of witchcraft.

 

The second citation could well apply to the citizens of Salem, not to mention modern-day Christians who believe they are exposing the Satanic and Luciferic forces in the world. Due to disinformation, suppression, and distortion, everything said about Lucifer is a hoax, or operates like one.

 

What's worse, those who would expose the hoax don't know it is one, and they themselves share the same beliefs held by those who foster the hoax!

Years back, when I followed some YT channels, such as the one run by evangelist Chris White, I noted that the Christian fanatics behind such channels did an excellent job deconstructing the alleged Satanic and Luciferian elements in, say, the New Age, precisely because they, the Christians, shared the same belief system that produced the psychotic fictions of Satan and Lucifer in the first place.

 

Indeed, they invented those demons and then hoaxed themselves by taking them literally.

Images of Lucifer/Satan as a hideous demon with goat's feet and horns, and bat wings, are all over the place in obks on occultism and sites on the Internet. Baphomet, for instance.

 

Due to the way that the human endo-psyche is cluttered with such images,

  • How can a new vision of Lucifer be introduced - an image of Lucifer in ascension?

  • How can the Luciferic ray penetrate all that religious murk and muck?

Concerning new images of Lucifer, I introduced one in the first part of this long piece.

 

Unfortunately, it is computerized graphic art. Still, it does portray the fallen angel with lace-like mycelium wings of pristine whiteness, a clue to the Organic Light...

It would be nice to suppose that Lucifer appears as a "white witch" if the renaissance of witchcraft does indeed happen.

 

But that is a naive and sentimental conceit. S/Hee is no virgin angel. More likely to be a tattooed wench of dangerous passions, or a Eurotrash babe with a wicked reputation. She does indeed intend harm.

 

Malice, as they say in Salem...

 

The game on this planet changes when some animals who take up Gaian witchcraft really do succeed in being dangerous, casting spells that actually work.

The weakness of the TV series Salem is twofold: first, they depict the witches casting spells in a fairy tale manner, reciting dumb rhymes over candles, brandishing animal bones, etc.

 

Second, they cannot depict the supernatural master of the witches in anything but a ludicrous manner. He is glimpsed as a hideous fiend lurking in the woods, or as black goat leaping up in lust.

 

The total failure to present a convincing image of Lucifer points to the opportunity for the Lucifer ray to break through...

Note: the Aztec-style iconographic rendering of the nopal cactus resembles the branching of fractals in the Mandelbrot Set (below).

 

 

If you saw the nopal cactus plant in an altered state induced by psychoactive mushrooms, you would see it fractally, no doubt. All natural forms "go fractal" in ecstatic trance - clouds, the edge of a tree line, rosebuds, etc.

 

But some more readily, and vividly, than others.
 

 

 


As for the eagle perched on the cactus:

10, the Toltec figure of the Eagle, a primary metaphor in Castaneda, comparable to the same figure in the Nag Hammadi Codices where the instructing voice of sacred mind, perhaps equivalent to Castaneda's "voice of seeing," states:

"I appeared in the form of an Eagle on the Tree of Knowledge, the primal knowing that arises in the pure light, that I might teach them and awaken them out of the depth of sleep".

(The Apocryphon of John, 23.25-30)

As for the snake in the beak of the eagle, I propose to take it for the DNA-RNA-serpent.

 

On this motif, histone shift, and epigenesis, see The Cipher of Ollin, which you might find worth reviewing at this moment.

"Histone shift is what I make of the Ollin theme, regardless of how the Aztecs understood it."

Ethics & Tactics

Indicated in NB 116, pertinent to the coming battle:

Ethics come from reflection on the Bhagavad Gita.
Tactics come from Aztec shamanism, cults of the Eagle (Dreamers) and Jaguar (Stalkers).

Gaian psychotronics.

psychotronics a term coined in 1967 by Zdenk Rejdák for the study of certain effects in parapsychology and mind control methods.
Origin 1970s

from Psycho - On the Pattern of Electronics.

Also, a particular branch of parapsychology which supposes an energy or force to emanate from living organisms and affect matter.

Again, psychotronics or psi warfare is the use of electronic machines to send beams of energy or frequencies directly to people's brains and bodies through the air. This is the new stealth warfare.

All right, you get the idea. You can find hundreds of articles on the theory of psychotronics and its technological applications through hardware (e.g., microwave guns and ELF waves) as well as paranormal faculties (e.g., remote viewing).

 

I defy you to find one article that presents a coherent action plan for using psychotronic against those who use them in evil ways, attacking the human species. You get the impression the human species has elaborately developed psychotronic weapons to attack itself, and only for that purpose.

 

That is clearly insane.

But, wait a minute...

 

If humans have the skill and intelligence to develop psychotronics for assault upon other humans, literally to wage war,

  • Why is there no equivalent development of psychotronic weapons and faculties to be used in fighting back?

     

  • Where is the countermagic to use against the "black magic" of psychotronic mind control and Flash Gordon ray-guns?

     

  • Hollywood celebrates super-powers of super-heroes with paranormal capacities, and the Harry Potter books portrayed all kinds of wizardry - totally fictional! How can it be that using magic and paranormal skills in the defense of life is fictional, but using mind control techniques to control, harm, and kill is factual?
     

  • "Super-powers" = siddhis, occult or paranormal powers attributed to yogis and accomplished masters of various Asian techniques. Taoist masters are also said to possess such powers, but who ever heard of them being used to fight against intra-species predators?

What if human animals in this moment of time could discover and put into action a range of "super-powers" or paranormal skills capable of defeating and destroying psychopaths, intra-species predators, and the enemies of life?

 

How would such "countermagic" - call it Gaian psychotronics - come to be defined, developed, and implemented? This is a question to live with courageously and contemplate daily as the omen of Venus Lucifer, the Morning Star, rises higher and hither in the east.

 

As I conclude the material on Sophia/Lucifer, I ask you to hold this distinction vividly in mind:

Turning around the current situation on the planet, so that events align in syntropic feedback with Sophia's Correction, does not depend on a magical factor, but may include one. MAY...

Correction is diorthotic: consisting of two solutions, two norms.

  • one is the mundane solution

  • the other is the magical solution

Neither of these two solutions alone can bring Correction to optimal expression in the social order. It takes both together.

Recorded commentary:

 

Svatantrya - The Sovereign Moment

 

Svatantrya (from the Sanskrit sva meaning self and tantram meaning dependence - 'self-dependency', or free will) is the Kashmiri Shaivite concept of divine sovereignty.

Svatantrya is described as an energy that emanates from the Supreme (Paramasiva), a wave of motion inside consciousness (spanda) that acts as the fundament of the world, or in another view, the original word (logos, vak).

 

It does not use any external instrument as it itself is the first stage of creation. In antithesis with the Vedantic concept of Brahman, which is a mere conscious witness without effective power, being inflicted with the illusion of the world by an external force,

In the Kashmiri Shaivite viewpoint, creation is actively willed into existence by the supreme consciousness by the means of his irresistible will-force (Svatantrya). This is an important aspect of the Pratyabhijna school of Kashmir Shaivism.

 

Svatantrya is a concept that goes to the root of many spiritual matters in Kashmir Shaivism, like, the divine sovereignty of Shiva (God), consciousness (caitanya), creative power (vimarsa), mantra and kundalini

Svatantriya = self-determination, self-reliance = sovereignty = conative latitude, risk-taking = Thelete = jupiter= freedom, reason, and hate for all that opposes them.
