This is the void, bright darkness, zero point or the serpent "Oroborus".
“If we then become children, would we thus enter the kingdom?” Jesus said unto them, “When ye make the two one, and when you make the inside
like unto the outside and the outside like unto the inside, and that which is above like unto that which is below, and when ye make the male and the
female one and the same, so that the male no longer be male nor the female female; then will ye enter into the kingdom.”
(Gospel of Thomas, Logion 22).

Just some extraneous facts, not contradicting, just comments on the contents of your post.
The Gospel of Thomas is a gnostic gospel. This quote is about the concept of ending duality, not exactly the same but similar to the Buddhist concept
of reaching nirvana. When you end all the dualities you become one and cease to exist.
"God consciousness" , "becoming gods [John 10:24 Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, `I have said you are gods'?"]" , Becoming
"one with God" [John 17:11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them
by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one." "resolving dualities" , "entering the kingdom of heaven"
, nirvana ....
etc... all are similar religious concepts. basically you become one with God and cease to exist as an individual. Some traditions say you goto be with
God, some say you become one with God, some say you just cease to exist, some say you wake up to the higher reality, etc....
I have a pet theory that the Oroborus might be the aurora. The great dragon in the sky protecting us (solar winds) I think it is a depiction of
ancient knowledge couched in mythology, but that is off topic and could be a whole thread unto itself. Maybe I will do a thread on it. I think much of
our ancient technology, or the knowledge there of is encapsulated in the mythology so the priest/science class could keep the info. It is embedded in
a language of symbols.
