Introduction to Gnosticism by Jordan Stratford+

Jordan Stratford+

 About Me:

Ecclesia Gnostica In Nova Albion

On the History of Cosmic Gnosis by Jordan Stratford+.

 Two thousand years ago, in Northern Egypt, a religious culture existed that embraced early Christianity, Qabalistic Judaism, Roman State Religion, Egyptian Mystery cults, Mithraism, and Greek philosophy. Because this religion emphasized personal revelatory experience and rejected Faith, it was a threat to the conformist orthodoxy which was taking shape in the Christian Church. Gnosticism's adherents were first ostracized, then persecuted, then slaughtered. But Gnosticism's ideas speak to a basic truth, and Gnosticism itself resurfaced countless times in the intervening centuries.

- In the beginning, there is only the Pleroma (the "empty fullness"), a state of infinite potential, unity, nothingness, and totality. For the Gnostic, this is God - without gender, personality, or human characteristics. The Pleroma is the Primal Source, and every universe, and the potential for every universe, is an emanation of the Pleroma.

- At some point, the Pleroma conceives of the "something" as opposed to "nothing". There is a sudden and significant division between these two poles, a fundamental one and zero. As yin and yang, positive and negative, male and female - all Diads are a reflection of these two "magnetic poles of God".

- These two poles, yearning for the unity of the pre-existing Pleroma, again come together. The result of that union is a daughter, Sophia ("Wisdom"). Sophia is as close as a Gnostic comes to ascribing a human personality to God.

- In one myth, Sophia, jealous of Her parents ability to create, creates in turn Her own children. These children, however, do not contain the spark of the Divine, as they do not come from the Pleroma.

- These children - known as the Archons, or rulers - are a huge problem. They are in turn jealous of their Mother's ability to create, and they create an entire universe over which to rule. The set themselves up as gods over their creation, but as they are imperfect their creation is flawed, cruel, and grotesque. This is the universe in which we live, and we are their creatures. It is a caricature of the Real World of union with the Pleroma.

- The early part of human history relates to our imprisonment and the injustice of the created world. A critical part of the Archon's agenda is to hide the truth of the Pleroma from their pawns. The chief of the Archons, the Demiurge, is particularly megalomaniacal and sadistic. He wants the world to worship him as the one true god.

- Sophia discovers the scheme of the Archons and their creation, and is horrified. She returns to the Pleroma and repents for Her error. She then carries a "spark" of Divinity, slips down through the complex hierarchies of the Archons, and conceals a splinter of God into everything and everyone.

- In some traditions, Sophia incarnates as Eve within the garden. Other stories have Her assume the role of Serpent. When the Demiurge appears before Adam and Eve and declares "There is no God but me", Sophia reveals Her True Self and states "You are wrong!" and shames Her monstrous offspring.

- Things start to get paranoid here. A small number of the Archons realize their error, and wish to return with Sophia to the Pleroma. She commands that they remain in their creation to act secretly as her agents, and encourage the spark in humanity.

- Christian Gnostics subscribe to the tradition which implies that Sophia is thereafter trapped in the created world and separated from the Pleroma. One aspect of the Pleroma, the Logos ("Word") is sent down through the Archons to rescue Her. The Logos is incarnated as Jesus, and his mission is to awaken the spark of God among humankind in order to generate a kind of "critical mass" of Divinity. The idea is that this would function as a kind of rocket fuel to return both the Logos and Sophia to the Pleroma. Some traditions state that this was successful, others not.

- Where this leaves us, as Gnostics, is to kindle the inner spark in order to escape the cruelty of the Demiurge and his agents, and light the way home to Divinity. This awakening is called gnosis ("knowledge" - spiritual enlightenment), a first-hand certainty of their relationship with the divine. This also involves a rejection of faith, and of third-party salvation. The Gnostic must personally negotiate with the Archons, and debate, argue, and define the nature of that relationship.

- I've never met a Gnostic who feels this is anything other than a metaphor, a powerful and transformative myth. But it does describe an almost universal sense of "this is not the deal", that the SYSTEM ("kosmos") of time, decay, disease, ignorance, jealousy, pettiness - does not reflect the "true" world, and that the god in charge of this creation must be cruel, insane, or both.

- Gnostics tend to come in one of three main varieties: Christian (about 70%), Hermetic (about 25%) and Sophianic (5%).

- The main sources for Gnostic thought, written between 200 BCE and 200 CE, were narrowly circulated, and hidden from mainstream or orthodox authorities. A large collection of these texts, the Nag Hammadi library, was unearthed in 1945. Among these is the Christian Gospel of Thomas, believed by many biblical scholars to be the oldest and most accurate account of the real teachings of Jesus.

- Hermetic Gnostics study the writings of the semi-mythical Hermes Trismegistus, an Egyptian priest (actually a nom-de-plume for up to a dozen philosophers over a few centuries). It is the discipline of magic, of alchemy and metaphysics, the "yoga of the west". The renaissance humanists, the Rosicrucians and early Freemasons were of these.

- Sophian Gnostics hold the idea of the Divine Feminine, inherent in the world and advocating for our enlightenment. She is the Queen of Heaven, Holy Wisdom, the Celestial Bride. Similarly, the Magdalene is also a central figure as an aspect of Sophia, as is the Egyptian goddess Aset, more commonly known as Isis.

I would like to remind those that are interested in gnosticism as a whole, that there are many variant forms of gnosticism. Many on the internet only post the valentinian theology as if it were the only form of gnosticism. This is misleading at best.
While neo-valentinian gnosticism seems to be the choice for many today, this may only be the case because it is the easiest form to reconcile with their former Roman Catholic beliefs and its rites. It is therefore a matter of comfortability. As was stated "Catholic on the outside, Buddhist on the inside. Quotes a lot of dead Greek guys." This simply is not true of all.

The kind of gnosis written about within the thomasine texts are devoid of the strange cosmologies written by valentinians. Its theories and resultant methods are completely antithetical to Roman Catholicism. This cannot be said of all neo-gnosticism or the neo-gnostic churches extant.
Jordan Stratford + said...
Ah, but I am speaking here (and throughout this blog) of "big G" Gnosticism, particularly Traditional (1890 Restorationist) and Apostolic Gnosticism, and not of neo-gnosticism (ghastly term) at all.

To say that the Thomasine texts are anti-thetical to Roman Catholicism may be partially true, but also entirely non sequiter.
I maintain that the Big G Ecclesiastical Gnostics *tend* to come in one of three flavours; Christian, Hermetic, and Sophianic. But each of those forms share a common ethical framework, ecclesiology, and heritage.
John Barbiero said...
I am very resonant with looking for the Divine within. My spiritual path sees this as consciousness becoming more and more conscious, moving from subconsciousness to superconsciousness. I wonder if the Demiurge and the Archons are entities of consciousness in error, but very capable of rectifying that error through evolution of consciousness. I must say, as a lapsed Roman Catholic, the idea that the God of the OT may be a "Half-Maker" makes me cringe even though there are many parts of the OT that I do not care to dwell upon as they are difficult concepts about God to accept. A case in point is the injunction to Abraham that he sacrifice his only son, Isaac, just to see how obedient he is. Yikes!

Chris Papadopoulos said...
Some (notably, Freke & Gandy) have equated Christ as our essential identity and the Demiurge (Samael, Ialdabaoth, OT Jehovah, etc.) as the Ego - who takes the credit for the creation and cannot possibly fathom the Stillness/Depth.
In our lives, we keep making the mistake of focusing on the interior monologue as "Me", lulling ourselves into the belief that this "Me" is the Doer.
So, this interpretation of who the Demiurge is may be an alternative to trying to fit or somehow alter previous God-concepts to fit the Gnostic worldview.
Just my 2 cents...What do I know anyway...

Gnosticism is a new concept in Africa. The Episcopal Baptist Church, Gnostic and Theosophical is bringing this to the awareness of the people of Africa. We are Christian gnostics and are interested in spreading gnosticism in the continent. It will be appreciated if you explain Christian gnosticism and its doctrine vis-vis the current understanding of Christic teachings. We are Christ centred.

I have arrived at the opinion that there is no need for an intermediary or ombudsman when it comes to the contemplation of the Devine, but I’m not sure this necessitates a rejection of the act of faith. The articles and trappings of faith offer no benefit other than to keep the guilty feeling guilty to a level of their own self satisfaction. However, my suspicion is that the act of faith or being faithful is a different situation or, more properly, condition.

Virtually every major religion, philosophy and knowledge system includes some form of meditation, prayer or, as above, contemplation. These would appear to be, in some sense, acts of faith. They would not have evolved if they served absolutely no purpose. I believe they are exercises to place the human body, mind and spirit into a state of consciousness, or faithfulness, which offers the potential for greater understanding and comprehension.

I just wanted to thank you for this post. I'm a constant seeker and student - a Heinz 57 of beliefs for lack of a better term. I've been studying gnosticism and your post helped me form at least a basic overview from which I can delve more deeply.
Thank you for the time and effort you've put into your blog, it's appreciated very much.

Personally, I feel no need to water down the archon/demiurge story as a "myth"; especially if one doesn't qualify this with the statement that the bible, especially the old testament, is entirely mythical.

And I feel no need to "categorize" gnostics in this fashion. If you must categorize, chalk me down as a "Lashian gnostic"; I would urge any readers of this blog to head to and study John Lash and his research.

p.s. I also find "christian gnosticism" to be a tautological phrase - like a "round square"....go figure.

Few people realize that into the 5th century the name “Chrestos” was widely used, instead of “Christos.” In some cases, NHC scholars are uncertain if XRS means Chrestos or Christos, but the average reader never hears about such nuances. In any case, these names did not indicate to Gnostics what we today understand by Christ. Chrestos, “the good one, benefactor,” was the generic name for the avatar expected to come in the Piscean Age. This expectation was held by many people of non-Christian orientation. Christos in Gnostic teachings is a god or Aeon of the Pleroma who does not incarnate in human form. Gnostics denied the divinity of Jesus. The Gnostic Christos is not Jesus Christ as understood in Pauline and Johannine theology.

As for the historical Jesus, we are diving into another vat of worms. The claim I make is twofold. First, as just noted, Gnostics understood Christos/Chrestos in ways that cannot be equated with the Christ of orthodox doctrine. Second, allusions to Jesus in Gnostic writings cannot be read as straightforward references to the Jesus character in the New Testament. The entire issue is a terrible mess, of course, and you are right in asking what is the point of all this quibbling. To me the important thing is that we allow that Gnostic materials are not merely out takes of the Cecil B. DeMille blockbuster called “The New Testament”: they are glimpses of a completely different movie. Gnostics denied that Jesus or anyone else could be the single and exclusive embodiment of the Divine.
John Lash (interview)
Jordan Stratford+ said:
The first thing we have to understand is that many early Christians WERE Gnostics, and that those teachers who made the biggest contribution to Gnosticism WERE Christian. Valentinus was as Christian as the Pope. The uber-Catholic Clement of Alexandria called himself a Gnostic and said that Gnosis was in fact the entire POINT of Christianity.

John Lash believes the Archons are actual shape shifting space reptiles. There is no academic confusion between the words "Chrestos" and "Christos" as he invents. This is total nonsense.

"Gnostics denied the divinity of Jesus."

Overwhelmingly Gnosticism EMBRACED the divinity of Jesus, but questioned his humanity. That's the historical record. That's not my particular *thing*, but it's a reality you can acknowledge and get into or acknowledge and move on.

Lash's Gnosticism has nothing to do with Gnosticism as a symbolic language, textual reality, or spiritual movement until John Lash came along. Nothing.
There is no "research" in Lash's work. He's L. Ron Hubbard. How *would* you go about researching telephathic alien space reptiles, exactly?

"Round square" - Almost ALL Gnostic figures in history, even modern history, were also Christian. PKD was Christian. Blake was Christian. Valentinus was Christian. Doinel, Encausse, Ambelain. Almost ALL the non-Christian Gnostic figures are PRE-Christian Gnostic figures.

If Lash's "work" is Gnostic, then NONE of historical Gnosticism is Gnostic, the Nag Hammadi texts are not Gnostic. The Pistis Sophia is not Gnostic.
Talk about your round square.

* Friday, October 13th, 1066 was the last day of the reign of the Saxon King Harold II. On this day, William, Duke of Normandy offered Harold the option of ceding the crown; Harold declined the offer. The Battle of Hastings took place the following day (Saturday, October 14th, 1066). Harold was slain and William took control of England. This ended the Anglo-Saxon rulership of England.

Interesting for many reasons, first of all Sophia is the name associated with the goat, and Baphomet, being a symbol of inner knowledge. Secondly, Crowely used the Baphomet image beause of it's adrogyny and his bisexual preferences. He also called himself the Beast and his consort the Scarlet Woman, referring to Sophia (inner knowledge) in her role in sexual magick.

Dear Cheryl!

The symbolism here is even more ancient and relates to the MAZZAROTH (aka zodiac as the Milky Way representing the serpent Ourobos (swallowing its own tail).
So one finds the start of the zodiac in the constellation of the Ram as number one kind of completing itself in an OVERLAP of 1 with 10 and 2 with 11 and 12 with 3 to CREATE the DECIMATION initiated by the Hindus in India (from which it then became copied by western mathematicians like Leonardo da Pisa aka Fibonacci initiating the renaissance.

Now of course the Ram parallels the SeaGoat of Capricorn and from this the bisexuality stems AS the overlapping of ODD (1=Ram) and EVEN (10=Capricorn). From here the 'clean' and 'unclean sexes' of Noah derive and the Torah assumes its true significance.
Much bloodshed and cruelty to animals would be avoided, if the Islamists and Hebrews would understand that their ''slaughtering methods' of bulls and cows and goats and sheep relates to this overlapping and not some 'weird' 'kosher/cleanliness' rites falsely propagated and interpreted by their priesthoods.

The 'blood sacrifices' are Rams 'losing' their identity, as well as the goats in their androgynous 'blending'. This is symbolised clearly in Abraham's 'sacrifice' of a ram in lieu of his son Isaac and also later by the crucifixion of 'God's son' etc.
But the SeaGoat=FishRam means signs 1-3 mapping signs 10-12 in the Aries-Capricorn Cardinality; the Taurus-Aquarius Fixidity and the Gemini-Pisces Mutability. This simply closes the circle of the zodiac aka Milky Way aka Ourobos etc.
The Sophia most anciently refers to Barbelo as the Mother of All aka the Afterthought manifested. As John says, everything originates in THOUGHT. All THOUGHTS are real but take often a long time to manifest in the material.
Ergo, when one leaves the body behind in old age and illness, one GETS what one has thought of or imagined etc. etc. It is a TRUE cocreation. The imperfect 3D-DNA awaiting its deliverance in its 12D baseperfect counterpart.

Tony B.

Also, I was under the erroneous belief that the Roma gypsies (who use the goat as their familiar in a lot of their local magickal rites) as orginating from Egypt, since a lot of their magick resembles Hermetic practices. But I found out today, because of the Y Chromosome abnormalities in their genetics, that they are now evident to be Indian in descent, coming from the Punjab. I only found that relevant, though, because of your offshoots on the Y chromosome abnormalities mentioned below. It sort of paralleled by findings today. I'm also interested in telepathy on a conscious and subconscious level (as some of you know, I'm exploring shared lucid dreaming), so this point may only be relevant to me and my offshoots on creation out of chaos.
But I believe the adrogyny of Baphomet to be symbolic of what Crowely called the lure of opposites. It's only by communing Binah and Chokmah, may Kether be entered. And so the symbol, as any symbol, is not to be taken literally, but as a sigil of spiritual growth.

* The Knights Templar were arrested on Friday October 13, 1307. The theory that this is the origin of the superstition was widely popularized in the novel The Da Vinci Code.
From an esoteric forum. I agree with the gnosis and with the cosmology, except the 'heat death' scenario which is not applicable. Tony B.

"This gloomy ruler has three names: The first name is Yaldabaoth (child of the void). The second is Saklas (the fool). The third is Samael (god of the blind).

He is wicked because of the Mindlessness that is in him. For he said, 'I am God, and there is no other God besides me,' since he did not know from where his own strength had come.

(The Secret Book of John, from Marvin Meyer's The Secret Teachings Of Jesus: Four Gnostic Gospels, p.65, pub. A.D. 1986)


At the beginning of time, Sophia (the world soul) broke away from Christ (the world spirit) and gave birth to Yaldabaoth, the arrogant creator-god of the Old Testament.

The exact process by which this cosmic fiasco occurred was the subject of much debate among the gnostics; in perhaps the oldest version of the story, Sophia's desire somehow veiled infinity, casting the shadow of matter from which Yaldabaoth emerged like a reflection or parody of the true, hidden god.

A veil exists between the World Above and the realms that are below; and Shadow came into being beneath the veil; and that Shadow became Matter; and that Shadow was projected apart. And what she [Sophia] had created became a product in the Matter, like an aborted fetus.

And it assumed a plastic form molded out of shadow, and became an arrogant beast resembling a lion. It was androgynous... because it was from Matter that it derived.

Erupting from the nothingness of the void into material existence, Yaldabaoth proclaimed himself god; Sophia acted quickly to punish this cosmic usurper, blinding and banishing him in one fell swoop.

Opening his eyes he saw a vast quantity of Matter without limit; and he became arrogant, saying, "It is I who am God, and there is none other apart from me!"

When he said this, he sinned against the Entirety. And a voice came forth from above the realm of absolute power saying, "You are mistaken, Samael."

And he said, "If any other thing exists before me, let it become visible to me!" And immediately Sophia stretched forth her finger and introduced Light into Matter; and she pursued it down to the region of Chaos. And she returned up to her light; once again Darkness returned to Matter."


The birth of the the Demiurge can be taken as a metaphor for the emergence of entropy. According to the second law of thermodynamics, the overall disorder of any given system will always increase over time as the system seeks equilibrium - thus, meat rots, rocks roll downhill and machines wear out.

When the Big Bang introduced space, time and matter into existence, our infant universe - which was, at least for moment, a trillion times smaller and denser than the head of a pin - was also quite orderly. Nothing to do and nowhere to go - nothing existed but photons, or light particles.

This primitive state of order was only temporary, however; almost instantly, the universe exploded outwards, spawning billions and billions of suns, solar systems and even entire galaxies as it expanded and cooled.

Even as it inflated wildly, our universe had already begun dying, sliding towards inevitable (and unglamorous) heat death. One day, billions of years from now, there will be nowhere left to go, no more energy left to use up and nothing left to grow or create. The universe will stop spreading outwards, the stars will burn out, and life will quietly and gently extinguish itself.

The idea that our universe is nothing more than a giant spring winding down introduces a paradox. Why do we see evidence of increased order and increased complexity all around us, if the creation we know is ultimately based on the degradation of energy? Whence cathedrals, computers, the evolution of life itself?

The answer is that ecosystems, civilizations and even living beings are all examples of dissipative systems - complex networks of interlocking processes which take far more energy to build and maintain than they generate. These small pockets of order are anomalies, tiny islands of negentropy in a vast ocean of chaos; the more complex a given phenomenon, the more energy it must "eat" in order to maintain its identity and so, the more disorder it creates in the long run."

Dear Cheryl!

The notion of Baphomet (of Knight Templar's Fame) strikes at the core of Western Esoteric Civilization and Culture.
The origins are found in the gnostic creation mythologies of 'Foretheought' (male God say) and 'Afterthought' (female Goddess say).
Below are some excerpts on stuff I wote on the topic, beginning with some 'real' medical science and also some scripture stuff thrown in for the ones interested in decoding the latter.

Tony B.

Have you heard of a genetic abnormality called Klinefelter Syndrome?

It is estimated that perhaps 1 in 500 boys are born with an extra X-chromosome, which causes a certain sexual variation at puberty.
The normal masculine genitals become supplemented in secondary female characteristics, such as a limited grow of breasts and other intersexual developments.
And a more severe genetic expression of Klinefelter Syndrome would occur at the ratio (e*^2) or in one such birth in 250,000, with a full genetic condition expressing the nonresponsive morphology or building process of the X-Y-chromosomes in relation to the hormonal stimulus.
When cells do not respond to testosterone or oestrogen from their common precursor progesterone, then conditions such as 'Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia' or 'Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome' can develop, with ambiguous development of the sexual organs from the common fetal embryo defined after a gestation of about six weeks.

The statistical occurrence of such genetic abnormalities would be in between 1/500 and 1/250,000. In particular, the absence of the Y-chromosome inhibits a genetic signal from the 'sex determining region' or SRY-gene and developing ducts from the embryo will chose the path of female internal sexual development and in conjunction with 'antitestis' genes such as 'DAX 1' and 'WNT4' and stimutation by the sexhormone oestrogen.

Corollarily, the presence of the Y-chromosome invokes 'testis genes' such as 'SOX9' to define the male pathway with stimulation by the sexhormone testosterone.

Logan Antico: "But this interaction between sex hormones and the genetic morphology is present in all of us.
You are saying that statistically 1 in 250,000 persons born is a true hermaphrodite, biologically expressed, with both male and female sexual external organs!?"

Robert Sceptico: "Yes, and this is represented in the mythology of 'Baphomet' and as envisaged by Arabian mystics.

Baphomet represented the idea of the 'Absolute'; it had the head and hooves of a goat, two wings, a greenscaled womb and human hands pointing to a fullmooned white right crescent above and a newmooned black crescent below; its female breasts were blue and it had a male penis and a female vulva; repesenting 'Solomon's Seal' which became the 'Star of David'.
It is depicted as sitting crosslegged on a cube, the geometry of earthly foundation, its feet resting on a worldly sphere, with a pentagram on its forehead and a lighted candle between its horns."
Logan Antico: "In terms of omniscience then, Baphomet is the bisexual nature in all of us and also the 'Beast and Whore of Babylon', as scripturally encoded.
One's personal dragonmade 'Armageddon' then becomes the placating of that bisexuality in the dragonomy of elevating one's sexual relationship with oneself and with another's mirrored polarity in one's own redefinition as a Man to a ManWoman and as a Woman to a WomanMan; losing nought of one's masculine or feminine beingness, but simply gaining one's basegenetic perfect match or 'twinsoul' or Egyptian Ka of one's own shadow nature in the process."

Robert Sceptico: "Precisely, and that BodyMind-MindBody elemental potential is represented in the ubiquitous occurrence of the ratio of 1/500 in truly elementary processes, such as (Ko-AntiKo)-decay; galactic sourcesink architecture and genetic abnormality in sexchromosomatic definitions.".......

Logan Antico: "It should be of help for either the students of life interested in literature and the written word or the ones studying the ancient mythologies, the sacred scrolls and the mysteries of esoterica.
Ultimately, there is no better way then to familiarise oneself with the Mathimatia of the New Greeks; the language of the natural sciences with its logic and selfconsistent analysis tested in the observations and experiments under the auspices of the scientific method.

But it is like this notion of a 'first death and resurrection', followed in a 'second death and resurrection', found in the sacred scriptures.
Such concepts are written evidence for some natural laws, which have yet to be analysed and elucidated by omniscience, before being disseminated on a popular level.
What do you make of this two-tiered structure of death and resurrection, Robert?"
Robert Sceptico: "Oh, this is the radiationmass as energy-transform for the old body-mind dichotomy.
The 'first death' is the mortality of the old body, separating from the old mind; the latter being a potential twinmind with a shadow - the 'Ba' and 'Ka' of the Egyptians.
The 'second death' is the immortality of the new bodymind unrealised as the BaKa-Unity.
The 'Dead Alive' Ones of the 'first resurrection' becoming identical with the 'Living Dead' Ones of the 'second resurrection'."
Logan Antico: "That is what Jesus said in the 'Gospel of Thomas' in sayings #7 & #11; the 'Dead' will be alive and the 'Living' will be dead in the 'curse of the lion' being eaten by man and the 'curse of the man', being eaten by the lion."
Robert Sceptico:"Exactly, and the 'lion' is both; Yaldabaoth as the 'illegal' Son of Barbelo as the gnostic usurper of the precreation and also the 'Lion of the Tribe of Judah', namely Jesus-Yeshua himherself, and as encoded in Revelation.5.5."
Logan Antico:"Yes, and the Western esoteric traditions transferred Yaldabaoth, the cosmic Heshe with a suppressed 'sheness' onto Baphomet of the 'Knight Templars', as the cosmic SheHe with an expressed 'heness' in their incomplete understanding of the cosmological histories."
Robert Sceptico:"But the basic impulse was correct and now you see the Christian-Catholic tradition of the Eucharist, the eating of the 'Body of Christ' in a new omniscientific light.
It all makes ritual sense and is linked to the supersymmetry of the RMP and the idea of a form of resurrection of the dead in the bodyminds and the mindbodies of the living ones.
The doubling of one's mind and body into the mindbody-bodymind coupling and the dragonomy of two such couplings creates the HeShe-SheHe twinship; but requires a male 'ascended body'as the body-part in the old female mindbody, together with a male 'descended mind' as the mindpart in the old female bodymind.
Corollarily, the female 'ascended body' merges with the male mindbody and the female 'descended mind' superposes with the male bodymind.
The 'natural' She-Body of Mary Magdalene so 'redeems' the 'unnatural' SonBody and the 'natural'He-Mind of Jesus-Yeshua so 'saves' the 'unnatural' DaughterMind.
Jesus-Yeshua's status as an 'unnatural' and 'only begotten' mutation as counteragency to Barbelo's 'unnatural' creation of Yaldabaoth, renders himherself as the archetypical 'MotherMind' in embodiment however, thus allowing Barbelo's Mind to finally 'understand' itself through its inbred wisdom of the SophiaGnosis.
The incarnation of Yaldabaoth as the shelessness in the maleness of Jehovah becomes harmonised in Mary Magdalene and as the real Eve, becoming Lucifera as the 'Devil's' Bride from Heaven'.
And in true heavenhellish justice, the 'Lake of Fire and Brimstone' becomes the dragonomy of the harmonised sexual polarities; the 'Brimstone' of the StarSon being the 'Fire' of the StarDaughter, burning with eternal desire to sexually merge the individualised electromagnetopolic factors of the Abrahamic generations within the 'heavenly wedding' of the bride and bridegroom.
So who are the 'forces of evil' of the ARMAGEDDON=82=DRAGON MADE in the eschatologies?

Yaldabaoth is the 'Beast' in every Man and Baphomet as the 'Whore from Babylon' is the Harlot in every Woman in the disharmony between oppositely polarised Mind- and Bodyparts.
The 'False Prophet' is also the 'False Prophetess Jezebel' as the 'Fake Image' of the 'ReD Dragon'.
The 'ReAL Dragon'(AL=13=1+3=4=D) is a 'Rainbow Serpent' of all the colours harmonised and is of a doubled bisexual standard definition within a true ManWoman=WomanMan.
The 'falsehood' relates to the thought of a natural independence of man from woman and vice versa, the liberation of man from woman and the liberation of woman from man - not a physical homosexuality, but a mental one.

Isaiah.43.20: "The beasts of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls; because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen." [Dragons are heshes and owls are shehes as God's unified people].
Isaiah.13.22:"And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged." [He-Dragons stress over the upcoming birth of their unifier messiah].
Jeremiah.9.11: "And I will make Jerusalem heaps, and a den of dragons; and I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant."[Desolate She-Dragons harbour He-Dragons].
Isaiah.27.1: "In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea." [The He-Dragon/Beast of the sea/subconscious is slain by WORDS=SWORD].
Job.41.1-...34:"Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?...
Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever?
Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?...
His heart is as firm as a stone; yea as hard as a piece of the nether millstone...
He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary.
Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear.
He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride."
Revelation.12.1-4:"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
And his tail drew the third part of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born."
Revelation.12.7-12:"And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night."
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them.
Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea!
Revelation.12.12-17: "for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time."
And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he may cause her to be carried away of the flood.
And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."
Revelation.18.21: "And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all."
Revelation.19.20-21:"And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that worshipped his image.
These both were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh."
Revelation.20.2,10:"And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,...
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."

There is a difference between the Devil=Satan and the devil=beast=false prophet; all three of the latter are cast ALIVE=EVIL A{Beginning} into the dragonomy, which is the 'Lake of Fire of the sexual desire, burning with passion between the StarSon and the StarDaughter to be together as the solid, bodily part of the Brimstone, like a Millstone within the spiritual fire of the EMMR'.
The Devil, as Satan, is the Tails of the same Coin of which God is the Head, it is the Ess-part of the 11D-supermembrane, the 'winding serpent' in modular duality to the 'vibrating serpent' Eps.
2Peter.3.8:"But, Beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."

Satan is the dark side of God as the Dog manifested to create the contrast for the light side of God to exist in; SATAN=SAT ON, the backside of the same divinity: HEAVEN=CLOUDS=SONGS=55
SATAN=55; Satan is the adversary of mankind as crown prosecutor in the hall of justice; heshe is a SheHe in the form of SATANA, just as LUCIFERA matches LUCIFER; LUCIFER=SATAN'S=74, as every Man and LUCIFERA=SATANA'S=75 as every Woman; SATAN+1 matches LUCIFER+1 matches MAN+1*=WOMAN=(WO)+MAN=(38)+28=(ALPHA)+28=(BRIDE)+28=66=FREEDOM=THE AMEN or THE MAGIC=THE NAME.

ARMAGEDDON=DRAGONMADE=ANDROMEDAG=MARRY7=GODNAMEDRA=82 =666+1=1+2+3+...34+35+36+1=1+2.2+3.3+5.5+7.7+11.11+13.13+17.17

The subject title is a reference to a movie in the '80s when a Hal-like computer befriends a kid in a friendly game of 'virtual' Nuclear War. Stephen Speilberg, I think...Anyway, my lucid dreams have lead me down a rabbit hole. And through my looking glass, I have received images of goats leading me up mountain paths. Hermetic teachings have lead me along the inquisition of Baphomet and the goat of mendes, both symbols of might and well, other esoteric practices, mainly that of the hermaphrodite and sexual alchemy of Crowely, Levi and other modern, misguided distortions of higher concepts...Anyway, since tomorrow is the 13th of October (those in the know of this subject get the link), I thought I might be so bold as to ask for any insights on Baphomet and the Goat of Mendes. I know here there is indepth reflection that surpasses Wikipedia, so I ask to borrow the expertise of those most brilliant. But I don't mean to be too pushy, demanding or forward, nor make any uncomfortable. I only seek true wisdom.Sincerely and tenderheartedly yours,Cheryl
