In my recent interview ("ET and Ancient Texts" - below audio) with George Noory for Coast to Coast AM, a listener called in a crucial question that I did not answer properly, due to the fast-paced, improvisational nature of the on-air format:
ETs & Ancient Texts
Sometimes, in responding to a question concerning the complex subject matter of mythology, it is necessary to frame the answer carefully, but radio interviews do not allow time for this.
In the following short piece I will have another try.
A great question, and absolutely
essential for a clear and sober orientation to the perplexing issue
of alien entities, visitors, ancient astronauts, "gods in flying
I call such "gods" psycho-deities
because they manifest through our psyches. Even if they represent
forces operating in nature, what happens in the natural world also
impacts the human psyche, and permeates it, so "nature gods" are
Yet, they are intrapsychic capacities, fully within our range of evolution.
psycho-gods are interactive within the range of our mental and
sensorial experience. They are, in a sense, extensions and
reflections of ourselves and other sentient creatures.
Of course, they also can reach into
the human psyche, and enter our consciousness. They can go anywhere
they like! Gnostics taught that the authentic cosmic gods, the pleromic divinities or Aeons, do not invade and overwhelm us. They
have excellent boundaries. They do not assume human form. They are
not of this world, but they are not entirely inaccessible to this
In astronomical terms,
the pleroma of the Aeons is the galactic core, or hub. The opening
Episodes of the Gaia Mythos present an attempt to describe the
nature and activity of the Aeons. (I use a prose-poem for this
purpose, as awkward as that may be, because a literal description
would be inappropriate.)
There is a vast range of trickster entities that do no harm and harbor no intent to deceive.
Their trickery is pure fun, or it may often be a way to instruct humans in survival, adaptation, and even self-knowledge. Many tricksters take the form of animals such as the rabbit, fox, crow, coyote, and so forth. These shapeshifting entities belong to the planetary habitat as much as we do. They are psychic, animistic powers of this world, close to the "animal powers" recognized by all indigenous peoples as allies to the human species.
The fairies and "little people" of Celtic folk-lore belong
to this class.
The niņos or hongitos, the "little ones"
Sabina, for example. Or the trolls seen
in DMT experiences, reported by Terence McKenna and others.
They may be shapeshifters, they may spin tall tales and perform all manner of clever illusions, but they do not pretend to be cosmic gods.
Those who do present themselves as cosmo-gods, our creators,
and so forth, could be called "trickster gods." But this is a tricky
term! We can call them trickster-gods, not because they are true
gods, but because they can be mistaken for true gods.
the Archons described in Gnostic writings.
Jehovah is a trickster-god who pretends to be an Aeon, a Generator. When Gnostics explained this distinction, they were violently resisted and, in some cases, murdered by the devotees of the pseudo-god.
Much violence has been done on this planet to protect the Biblical pseudo-god from being exposed. In fact, Jehovah's agenda encourages and sanctions this violence, as any sane person can see from reading a few pages of the Old Testament.
The pseudo-god needs to protect its identity and preserve its deception. To do so, it persuades its human devotees to fight in its behalf. This particular trickster-god is extremely jealous and malicious. This explains why the three mainstream religions, whose followers take the pseudo-god for the supreme creator, are informed by an agenda of violence, aggression, and domination.
We live on a planet where millions of inhabitants are caught in the deceptive spell of a pseudo-god.
This was the Gnostic warning to humanity.
Christian O'Brien (The Genius of the Few) is particularly astute in his psychological profile of the Biblical father god, and A.D. Horn (Humanity's Extraterrestrial Origins) flatly asserts that "Jehovah is a lizzie" - that is, a predatory reptilian.
Horn does not cite Gnostic sources, but this is exactly what you will find in the Nag Hammadi materials. The Apocryphon of John (NHC II, 1) and other cosmological texts use the term drakonic for Jehovah, or the Demiurge, as this pseudo-god is also called.
The name given to this
entity in the Mysteries was
Yaldabaoth, YAL-duh-BUY-ot. Roughly
translated this means "breeder of the hive, or horde."
The seers of the ancient Pagan Mysteries observed that Archontic entities are present in the solar system, but they are not native to the earth as we are.
They are literally an extra-terrestrial and non-terrestrial species. As such, they are only capable of flitting into the atmosphere of the earth in erratic ways, making brief forays, and then flitting out again.
For them to remain on earth, special conditions would have to be
established, just as when humans set up an outpost on the moon, or
in the depths of the ocean. The Archon tricksters cannot live in the
biosphere, just as we cannot live on the other planets of the solar
system such as mars, jupiter, and neptune.
As the Gaia Theory of Lovelock and Margulis affirms, the earth differs from the rest of the planets by the strange equilibrium of its atmosphere, providing not only a space for life-forms to inhabit but an interactive medium in which life can evolve, adapt, and innovate.
Such is the miracle of life on
earth, including the human species as part of an open experiment
overseen by the cosmic gods, the Aeons.
This situation is unique to our
world. Mythologically, it is called the Fall of Sophia. To us,
Sophia is the one Aeon or cosmo-god who is directly, sensorially
present. We live in her skin. Our cosmic mother is the Aeon Sophia,
whom we now call Gaia.
These entities proceeded to
fashion a world for themselves, the planetary system exclusive of
the earth, which is Sophia's body, and was formed somewhat later.
The Archons are so named, from Greek archai, "prior, previous,"
because they and their world were formed before Sophia morphed into
But it is remarkable that seers in the ancient Mysteries were able to establish this scenario. Take it or leave it, believe it or not. Personally, I believe this scenario is trustworthy and can be tested against the evidence.
The value of the Gnostic scenario of the Demiurge and his horde is that it gives us a framework for discerning various types of non-human entities, and detecting one predatory type of trickster-god. I do not insist that these are the only predatory ETs in our galaxy - I know there are tales of many types - but the brutal fact is, one is enough to endanger our evolution.
Gnostic teachings, I believe that the Archons are the most immediate
and intimate threat to humanity.
What those seers were able to determine about the predatory trickster-gods may be crucial to human survival. I want to emphasize one aspect of their dia-Gnosis of alien intrusion: not only does Yaldabaoth pretend to be the supreme creator god, but he falsely believes he is just that.
chief Archon has a god complex! He is not only trying to deceive us,
he is deceived. The pseudo-god is delusional, and his delusion
infects all those who follow him - such is the shocking message from
the ancient Mysteries.
This, of course, is exactly what
Jehovah does, too. Believers in the mainstream religions who take
this delusional entity for their Supreme Being are themselves
delusional. In blind faith, millions of people are enmeshed in the
insanity of a pretender god and implicated in the violence and
aggression of the Archons.
Yaldabaoth stands between humanity and the Aeons in the galactic core, pretending to be one of them. The Archon horde, operating on a hive-mentality, try to intrude between humanity and the Aeon Sophia, embodied in the earth. Thus they work against our innate wisdom, so closely connected to the intelligence of Gaia, in the vain attempt to deviate us from that connection.
This is the dia-Gnosis of the
It is clear that the Sumerian Anunnaki and the Gnostic Archons are identical to modern ETs, but it is by no means easy to go through the massive material of myth and folk-lore and weed out every reference to the pseudo-deities.
I have not done this, not completely or
exhaustively, but I have made various attempt at it. I would like to
report my investigations on another article on site.
I am certain that
factoring the Archons into this discussion can be extremely
instructive. At the same time, the introduction of Gnostic
counter-intelligence on alien intrusion takes the discussion to
another level. We now have to become more sophisticated in our
understanding of the alien factor.
In making the identification, Anunnaki = ETs, for instance, we catch sight of the entities who pretend to be gods. In the Sumerian cuneiform record, which are transcripts of channeled materials, the Anunnaki claim to be our creators. But does the fact that something was written on clay tablets 2800 years ago mean that it is true? Of course not.
The Sumerian cuneiform record presents a
claim that the Anunnaki are superior creator gods, not proof that
Having made the ET-god connection, we must take another step toward more sophisticated knowing.
The sane thing to do, then, would be to ask, If the Archon-ETs
were wrongly regarded as gods, who are the genuine gods? It would be
a gross error to assume that we have understood the nature of the
gods simply by making the ET connection to ancient mythology.
Such is the ancient Pagan teaching
preserved by the guardians of the Mysteries. Today we stand at the
threshold of reviving and reliving that teaching.
