No offense, what are you talking about??

My premise is somthing you refuse to acknowledge; that there are people, "elites" i suppose you could call them, who propagate Myths in the greater culture.

The myth itself is suited to the spirit of the age. Thus, in the dark ages, the Myth of King Arthur reflected the ancient cosmology in the terms of the spirit of the age; which was chivalry etc.. The myth of the holy grail was the dominant myth of the middleages for its own peculier reasons. . The alchemical "philosophers stone" , fountain of youth, etc were myths that dominated in other eras.

These are all post-Christian "myths" popularized in the wider culture, but understood by very few - only those initiated in the secret academies.

These myths wre not merely 'spontaneous' bubblings of the unconscious into popular fiction. No. They were UNDERSTOOD, metaphysically, and later on pushed into the culture.

The myths are great and can vary in imagery. It can be presented in many different ways, but the underlying metaphysics, based on definite psycho-spiritual experiences, is usually the same.

Shakespearean plays are entirely allegorical - that is, they have a definite interpretation. Likewise, the Divine Comedy, Paradise Lost, Fauste, Lord of the Rings, Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz, Harry Potter etc. .These are Allegorical ideas - often gnostic in flavor - that are injected into the popular culture. The Myth is then transferred from the domain of the abstract, into the real - society.

The myth of the grey is completely suited for our times.

It is completely desacralized, and is related to as another creature from another planet. He comes from the skies - usually from a UFO. The skies being the unconscious, the UFO being the domain of the soul - while the Grey Alien - the 'ideal man' exists within the UFO (the soul)....

Im not going to debate over my methodology. This isnt an anthropological issue (although in some respects it is) but rather, a phenomena of history, rarely spoken of for obvious reasons (secrecy).

This is all too easy to interpret without deviating one iota from gnosic cosmology. Thus, i have 'faith' in this interpretation, more than i have faith, or belief (since all things are a matter of faith) in your issue over methodology. That sounds like a means to distract people (or yourself) from the simple reality that mysticism - esoteric philosophy - is hidden from the masses. This is an easy thing to accept. But to speak about? If youre not subject to any oaths, it shouldnt be a problem. And if you are subject to an oath..pfffft to your conformity.

Granted the Greys appearance must be a sort of metaphor, particularly their neoteny (feotus like appearance) - but this seems to be a feature of most intra- dimensional phenomina - and as described by the Gnostics - these are beings without volition or imaginal powers of their own, created in a sort of cosmic accident, an error due to the unbalanced fall of the Aeon Sophia.


Ok. You pretty much understand this in the same way that i do.

The Gnostic habit of taking Biblical motifs - like the snake, and reinterpreting them in conformiy with Pagan beliefs, just shows you what kind of people they are. And indeed, many 'gnostics' or pagans today actually think the Torah is Gnostic allegory - when it is anything but that to anyone who actually KNOWS what the proper metaphysical exegesis is.

For instance, the Ophites and Essenese - gnostic groups, took their name from the word for serpent. The Serpent in Genesis which caused Eve to eat the apple symbolizes a spirit of delusion which asrises from the existence of "the earth" - or created reality. A created reality who eats of the tree of Life will then believe himself to be the source of his own existence. That he is God.

This spirit of delusion arises from mans own EGOTISM - and so, gnosticism is completely and entirely egotistical. It is fixated with living life in the terms dictated by the aspirant. Everything has to be according to HIS WILL and HIS mentality. The snake as presented in Genesis in the narrative with Eve refers to the interaction of this spiritual force - the snake - with Lifeforce - Chava (eve in Hebrew means lifeforce) . Its a collsapse in stature because one who choose to lie according to HIS own terms, transgresses the law of THIS lower world. In this world, things must be made REAL, otherwise they exist only in spirit (abstract). The man and Wife come together as they do for a REASON - a metaphysical law, for the spiritual dynamics of the universe - male/female, active/passive, to be manifest in human society. For mankind to live IN ACCORD, and in UNION, with love and reverence, is what the creator of Reality wants.

Gnosticism inverted the entire picture. Instead of the biblical God being a God of love, he becomes a God of hate, and jealousy. A 'deluded' archon, who for some inexplicable reason wants to keep man trapped in this world, respecting moral boundaries. Their distortion of the Old Testament is repulsive. You can find many more accounts of Gods love and mercy (the same God Christians commune with when they read the psalms of David) and justice, then you can of questionable acts scattered throughout the Torah.



As to the origins of Judaism - to me Yahwe sounds and acts just like the demented demi-urge - ie a being created by accident devoid of any link to the god head, who suddenly awakes in the primorial chaos of the planetary realm and finding itself alone, imagines itself to be the creator god 'I am that I am'.


Thats absurd. Before you accept any one position, learn BOTH sides. Dont just read gnostic literature and take everything thy say about Judaism as a matter of fact. Learn both sides. Each side speaks from the own unique perspective; one has its own metapysical framework, and each, theologically speaking, have a case to make.

But in terms of basic morality. Judaism is INFINITELY superior.

Gnosticism at its core is repugnant. Everything it does it does at the expense of Judaism. Jews become the killer of Jesus. The Jewish God is an evil God, and thus the Jews - his followers - are evil. It takes the Hebrew language - a Jewish invention - and distorts its metaphysical truths. It takes the Hebrew Bible - with its own exegesis - and distorts it beyond recognition. And look at history. Who would dare say the elites - noble houses - didnt have a hand in oppressing and persecuting the Jews? EVERYONE of them launched their crusades, pogroms, and wars on the Jews for the SAME reasons. The same matters which motivated Apion of Alexandria in 100 BCE, were the same things which motivated the Romans to destroy Judea, and rename it (to spite the Jews) after their biblical arch-enemy, the philistines - palestine. The Christian, Muslims persecutions, all for the same reason.

Knowing this situation as i do, a reality that is inctrovertible from my perspective, i woul be pretty evil, and cruel, and tremendously self absorbed, to look at gnosticism, and the things it has done to this Godly people, and think that it is good thing.

If Judaism = optimism, while Gnosticism = pessimism. The way the world appears is Good (Judaism), or the World is entirely evil (gnosticism), i chooe Judaism. I choose good, and optimism, because frankly those are only two choices. We can be optimistic, humble, and accept the possibility of reality being not as we imagine it to be, or we can hold to definite truths - this is true, etc.

In my opinion, i do have faith and belief in the Biblical God. And i trust that what the Hebrew Bible teaches is true.

As far as Gnostcism goes, and you might aswell throw in Buddhism, Hinduism and Sufism too, (although, all 4 schools of thought have great good in them, im referring to the pessimistic, and nihilistic elements) its theology is much to pessimistic. Its not worth believing in.

Frankly, i want a world with spiritual diversity. Not just one religion - as the UN wants - for all.

If Jews want to come together, in Israel (a place they have a legitimate claim to) and decide to institutionalize Mosaic law, transfer the Dome of the Rock - built as it is on a Jewish holy site (a retroactive correction of an ancient sin) - and build their Holy Temple on the Temple mount, why stand in their way????

Arent you curious to see what happens??

The Jews have as much right to follow and live Judaism, in the most conservative way they like, as Liberals have a right to live as they want to live.

NOBODY should be compelled to follow any belief system. I dont want the UN stuffing new age spirituality - based on mainly eastern ideas - on me , and i dont want fundamentalist Christians or Jews compelling others to become more conservative and observant.

People should have complete free will - in the sprit of the American constitution, to live as they want to live.

And if the world ever becomes more conservative, let it happen by acceptance because it appears to be a better way to live and not by force.

No objections, it's your choice. As long as it's understood, that methodology is a half of any argument.

Quote: ["This is all too easy to interpret without deviating one iota from gnosic cosmology. Thus, i have 'faith' in this interpretation, more than i have faith, or belief (since all things are a matter of faith) in your issue over methodology."]

I can actually bring this direction further into epistemological considerations. My approach is not exclusively a black/white pragmatism (I believe we both can disregard simplistic propaganda positions).

Quote: ["That sounds like a means to distract people (or yourself) from the simple reality that mysticism - esoteric philosophy - is hidden from the masses."]

I would rather call it inaccessible from lack of applied participation. It's not an X-file conspiracy to hide the truth.

Quote: ["But to speak about? If youre not subject to any oaths, it shouldnt be a problem. And if you are subject to an oath..pfffft to your conformity."]

I have never seen the purpose of any 'oaths'. They are mainly part of some mindgames.

Does UN do that? In the scope of my interests on this subject, I've never seen it manifested compulsary.

You'll find a strong ally in me on this.

You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about, you seriously need to re-read Jung and Gnosticism, and look at the Kabalah again! The talk about your conscious self has to do with the you internally in your mind! It has nothing, I mean nothing to do with aliens. It's about learning about who you are a self discovery, by going in, you meditate, and figure things out through your mind! Please stop spewing out false #! People need to get over this alien BS!!!

At this point in time, the UN promotes liberalism, egalitarianism and socialism.

The UN also sponsors a few New Age organizations, the most notable being "lucis trust" - started by the theosophist Alice Bailey. Additionally, the undersecretary to the UN for 45 years, Robert Muller, called the "philosopher" around the UN, based his theology on Baileys writings.

Bailey was infamous for her antisemitism.

I didnt mean anarchy. I meant freedom of speech, freedom of self determination, respect of individual property, right to arms etc....

I think the US constitution has it all.

It would be a good thing for the US constitution to become a sort of 'world' constitution, or atleast, for other nations to adopt its moral standing.

As I do, except for the 'socialism' bit, which I can't see UN as a promoter of, and which I definitely am not supporting. I'm somewhat conservative.
But what has that to do what asian religions? And are you critical to liberalism and egalitarisnism?

I'm no fan of Alice Bailey, but I can't see any harm in the 'triangles', independent of ethnicity, religion or culture meditating for world peace on a principle of 'good vibrations'.

Quote: [" Bailey was infamous for her antisemitism."]

I've read some 5.000+ pages of Baley (I used to be a speed-reader). Anti-semitism didn't strike me then. Maybe it would today. Details please, if you want to go further in that direction.

Quote: ["I didnt mean anarchy. I meant freedom of speech, freedom of self determination, respect of individual property, right to arms etc.... "]

Complete and very active agreement on my part.

Quote: ["I think the US constitution has it all. It would be a good thing for the US constitution to become a sort of 'world' constitution, or atleast, for other nations to adopt its moral standing."]

It's quite good, but the rest of us prefer to find our local consensus versions of constitutions. Not least because US constitution is in a chronic state of 'emergency' (unless that changed recently).

Straight from gnostic scripture.

Link

39. Jesus said, "The Pharisees and the scholars have taken the keys of knowledge and have hidden them. They have not entered nor have they allowed those who want to enter to do so.

As for you, be as sly as snakes and as simple as doves."


I appreciate your views on the symbolic nature of the greys and your leanings towards Jungian concepts of our deep subconscious.

I find that there is hyperbole mixed in with history and the whole phenomenon of visitors from other plantets.
Whereas I subscribe to the As Above, So Below concepts I imagine there is a lot of mist in between our understanding of both. I have studied gnostic scriptures among many others extensively and find that this journey to be solitary; is there any coincidence that we seek outside of ourselves to know ourselves, much in the same way Lucifer created us by an image, a picture of perfection, which is a model without the underlying details... although those details have been accumulated over time... It could be said that we were created as empty vessels with the outward appearance of "God" therefore we have been imprisoned.

Link

28. Jesus said, "I took my stand in the midst of the world, and in flesh I appeared to them. I found them all drunk, and I did not find any of them thirsty. My soul ached for the children of humanity, because they are blind in their hearts and do not see, for they came into the world empty, and they also seek to depart from the world empty.


In conclusion, I myself don't know either.. but there is so much in this world that when viewed symbolically provides great insights into our own mind and psychology. Although when it comes to visitors to this planet, there is just too much evidence that at one time they must have visited us, or we ingested a record amount of hallucinogens and cooperatively hallucinated similarly across the entire planet.

I actually believe that this planet was 'seeded' so to speak, by another humanoid race - mankind - from another planet, and this happened 5771 years ago.

The evidence is just too convincing.

  • Our oldest traces of civilization come from sumer, circa 3800 BCE
  • the Hebrew calendar began 5771 years ago. Adam HaRishon - as opposed to the kabbalistic Adam Kadmon, was the first man with this higher spiritual level of awareness - which was self consciousness according to kabbalistic tradition.


Where did this higher level of awareness come from? How did mankind get it??

One of the explanations is that another humanoid race imparted knowledge to mankind. This spiritual knowledge eventually transformed the whole of the human race.

Another explanation is your mushrooms theory.

Because the mushroom theory doesnt account for the spontaneous explosion of civilization in Sumer in the 4th millenium BCE, i lean towards the possibility that another humanoid race came here and gave this knowledge to this planet as a messenger of a sorts. These men were very spiritually evolved. Having a clearer understanding of the divine ways of things then we do. This could explain the Talmudic statement that mankind in the future era - the next world - will have no free will. He will act in accord with the divine law in the same way that angels do.

You are absolutely CORRECT. I can attest to this, currently 29. At the age of 25 I had agreed to work with the demons and have video of what they look like and what their capabilities are. Many are what you have mentioned and they did promise all that you mentioned.
They are as simple as an intelligent bacteria and are well at organizing. Always work in groups and their little # disturbers.
We were in communication for about 3 months, they taught me many things and asked to be able to work through me in exchange for ultimate power. They were decent at delivering what would seem to all the lusts of the world, money, power and sex.
They taught me how to effectively raise my vibration frequency as this is the only way to telepathically communicate.
The best part was meeting the good guys! there are angels on this planet and their as vibrant as a rainbow. I to had no resort but to ask Jesus for help and it worked like a charm almost instantly came to my rescue.

It really is getting completely childish that people refuse to accept this explanation.

The ancient gnostics referred to the transcendental God, the God beyond all description, as "alien".

Todays myth makers have created for themselves a cult; the cult of the Grey Alien.

A "grey alien" is a symbol. Like all symbols, the features of the imagery are meant to allude to some metaphysical idea.



I had to laugh when I saw your thread. I don't know a great deal about the Gnostic beliefs, except for a documetary surrounding Mary and the disciples. She claimed that it's not necessary to use an outside force as a mediator, but anyone can have a direct line to god. According to gnostic writings, you are referring to the Jewish god as a 'grey alien'.

[6] In the Gnostic myth, the supreme god is completely perfect and therefore alien and mysterious, "ineffable," "unnamable," "immeasurable light which is pure, holy and immaculate" (Apocryphon of John). In addition to this god there are other, lesser divine beings in the pleroma (akin to heaven, a division of the universe that is not earth), who possess some metaphorical gender of male or female.16 Pairs of these beings are able to produce offspring that are themselves divine emanations, perfect in their own ways.17 A problem arises when one "aeon" or being named Sophia (Greek for wisdom), a female, decides "to bring forth a likeness out of herself without the consent of the Spirit," that is, to produce an offspring without her consort (Apocry. of John). The ancient view was that females contribute the matter in reproduction, and males the form; thus, Sophia's action produces an offspring that is imperfect or even malformed, and she casts it away from the other divine beings in the pleroma into a separate region of the cosmos. This malformed, ignorant deity, sometimes named Yaldaboath, mistakenly believes himself to be the only god.

[7] Gnostics identify Yaldabaoth as the Creator God of the Old Testament, who himself decides to create archons (angels), the material world (earth) and human beings. Although traditions vary, Yaldabaoth is usually tricked into breathing the divine spark or spirit of his mother Sophia that formerly resided in him into the human being (especially Apocry. of John; echoes of Genesis 2-3). Therein lies the human dilemma. We are pearls in the mud, a divine spirit (good) trapped in a material body (bad) and a material realm (bad). Heaven is our true home, but we are in exile from the pleroma.

As a definite entity Gnosticism appears with Simon Magus, Menander and Saturninum, and it appears in an entirely Jewish and Christian context. It is, in fact, generated by the action of Jewish heterodoxy upon the inchoate, formative years of Christianity. Gnosticism has transmitted many ancient ideas to later heretics and occultists, but it received them as transmuted and fused by Jewish eccentric speculation. Most of the elements of all the Gnostic systems can be found somewhere in the vast mass of Jewish Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha.

Umm no.

The idea of the Grey Alien is its alieness; from this world ie; the supposed creation of the "demiurge". The Jewish God is the cosmos, whereas the gnostic God is a complete negation of what exists. It is Nihilism (nihil - to cancel out), and thus a Gnostic feels just as a grey alien, an alien inside a strange world, completely unlike it in every way.

This is an already talked about idea at a few different websites.

Apparently even Gnostics note the connection:

Gnosticism is pagan. It is a combination of various different ideologies, but it most certainly is not Jewish, albeit, it frames its religion around the antagonist "demiurge", the God worshipped by the Jews.

Gnosticism if like any religion most, it would probably be ancient Egyptian religion. The correspondences between the two, and especially the antagonism showed by Gnostics towards the Jewish God (something most fervent in Egypt) and their desire to be 'free' from his oppresive yoke, even though Judaism didnt directly affect them (or maybe it did? Many Roman historians paint a picture of an early common era Judaism that was involved in proseltyism, or atleast, Judaisms basic ethos appealed to the Roman masses, who these Roman writers referred to as "God fearers") is present in late Egyptian religion, and later on Gnosticism.

I personally see gnosticism as a rebuke of Judaism. The energizing spirit behind it is clearly antinomian; ie, against law, and order, and so was regarded by even the early christian fathers, and even plotinus, a neoplatonist, as unnecessarily radical in its thinking.

It is, in essence, the precursor to modern day Satanism.

I agree to an extent with your theory. I started a thread about the connection of the OTO and the 33rd parallel's involvement in major UFO sightings. All the "aliens" started after the OTO really took over. Jack Parsons --> NASA
L Ron Hubbard--> Scientology Crowley--> Anton Levay, Satanism, etc. . .

The age of Horus is designed by Crowley to replace the christ consciousness of christianity and the outsider god of paganism with becoming a human god. That seems to be what is being pushed these days.

Alien, for the fallen angel theory could also mean alienated. As in alienated from God (Love).

There is no way Gnosticism could be classified as satanism, unless the Christ would be included in that. According to gnostic beliefs, a savior is required to redeem the people and lead them out of the material world.

I'm curious as to what the Jewish god was about with the 'holy horrors' and atrocities that were committed in his name. Even after destroying entire peoples, it was just as important to destroy any evidence of a previous god. Remember! He's a jealous god! Men, women, children, but keep the young virgin girls for themselves. Obviously, it's also about stamping out any evidence of any previous god or beliefs.

I'm beginning to understand a little of the gnostics beliefs in that there were archons that believed they were the only god at that lower level. How else do we explain the atrocities committed by so-called gods?

Incidentally, Ehyeh asher ehyeh is the first of 3 responses given to Moses when he asks god's name. Ehych is the first-person singular imperfect of Hayah, 'to be'. Ehyeh is usually translated " I will be" and denotes action not yet completed. It's "I am what I am becoming". Moses had the perfect childhood as far as his destiny as law giver.

Hans Jonas is the one who made the association, and it is completely logical.

The Demiurge = law and order in Gnostic thought. All things which derive from the process of ordering, ie; the ego, the psyche, are rooted in him. Thus, to abide by moral precepts is to, in the Gnostic interpretation of things "enslave yourself to the demiurge".

The solution is antinomianism, whether through asceticism (denying the world), or libertinism (taking advantage of the world). In either case, your revolting against the cosmic order, against God, and so in essence, the same nihilism which animates gnosticism animates modern day satanism.

Go look up Thelemapedia. They have a "hall of great gnostics", for a reason.

Allegory my friend. The bible is a book of metaphysics.
