SOLVED IN ANCIENT TEXTS
What if it
were to become known to the world at large that Gnostic teachings
contain a clear and comprehensive description of the ET/UFO enigma?
The Gnostic scenario challenges us to
understand how the Archons are an intimate feature of our
evolutionary history, rather than an inexplicable force apart from
us. At the same time, Gnostic teachings clearly warn that we must
admit the reality of the Archons so that we can resist them and
avoid being deviated from our proper course of evolution.
In this essay I will try to describe and
delineate the first three of these pathways in such a way that the
explanations given will support immediate, practical understanding
of how we are effected by the Archons.
Gnostic teachings are unique in many
aspects — as I hope to have demonstrated here and there in this site
— but it is perhaps outstandingly unique in this one point: It
carries a message of love and a warning about a message of love. Or
what claims to be a message of love.
To put a neutral name to this message, the "Good News" of Christianity, let's call it salvation.
Salvation involves an intervention
scenario in which a superhuman being comes to Earth, assumes human
form, and performs certain acts that are believed to change the
course of human experience. Salvationism is an ideology of divine
intervention. The teaching of Jesus Christ and all that is
taught about Jesus Christ cohere around this one shining
kernal, the belief in being saved by God.
All that we consider glorious and
profound in the figure of Christ (as represented, for instance, in
the image of Christ teaching at Chartres cathedral, shown above) was
to them a grotesque sham, a false doctrine insinuated into the human
mind by alien forces. In short, they regarded the Christian
salvationist program (and, in a wider sense, the entire
Judeo-Christian ideology of divine authority) as a trap set by
extra-terrestrial powers to lure us from our genuine connection with
Sophia and the Earth.
History tells how they were treated for expressing their truth, as they experienced it.
When they challenged the beliefs of the
early Christians, Gnostics were attacked physically. Here is a hard
lesson about the violence that can arise from identification with
beliefs. It seems like this lesson might be worth recalling today,
considering some of the stories to be seen, day after day, on the
