According to the Gnostics, the Snakes are our instructors, demiurges who shaped our bodies, but not our soul, which is not theirs, because it is uncreated. We are born from light, just like them. But our terrestrial vehicle, this triple body of flesh and spirit, we owe it to them.
“The Gnostic philosophy was born in the early Christian era within the Mediterranean basin, mainly in Egypt, heir of the ancient religion of Isis’ mysteries. To its followers, man is the emanation of the source of all things, and inherit a piece. See Notre père Prométhée of this creative perfection.” On the contrary, our triple body “has been shaped by harmful beings, usurpers who have proclaimed themselves ‘gods’, the famous Archons. Yahveh is regarded by the Gnostics as the chief of the Archons, the great demiurge, the most evil creature. In the 4th century, the confrontation between the Gnostics and the fathers of the Church was violent and merciless. Most of the Gnostic texts were destroyed before the discovery of Nag Hammadi’s famous scrolls in 1945, what was known about Gnosis was limited to the reviews of heresy hunters in the early days of Christianity.” (source)Karmaone and David Dennery, Nexus #63 p.38
Which is very unfortunate, because Jesus himself was Gnostic. Paradoxically: to save the religion of Christ, the fathers of the church had to invent a charming character they named Jesus. Before that, Christ, it was Emperor Constantine…
In the time of Jesus, Kali Yuga was only two thousand years old, now it is twice that age. Very little truth floats in an ocean of errors. Let us get back to those harmful beings who have shaped us, since this is the Gnostic view. According to Anton Parks, there is also a mistake there. The gifted geneticists who made us were not as evil as it seemed at first. To Parks, the mother goddess is the sumerian goddess Tiamata.
That is she who deserves firstly the title of Primordial Serpent. Initially this term was positive because “the snake is the wisest among all the fields’ beasts” said the oldest version of the Torah, called the Septuagint. As for the Bible, it says quite the opposite: “the snake is the most cunning of all animals”. Thus the serpent is the ally of the men and the creator of the human race. He personifies the mother goddess Tiamata, assisted by her son Enki – called Osiris in Egypt, Oannes in Persia, and Prometheus in Greece.
Among the Dogons, he is Nommo; among the Meso-Americans, he is Quetzalcoatl, and among the Hindus, Vishnu. He is the first instructor of our species, like the feathered serpent Quetzalcoatl, like the god-fishes Nommo, Oannes or Vishnu. He has always supported and defended men when other gods wanted to kill us, as our creator Prometheus siding with the men against his uncle, the powerful Zeus. Or again, as Osiris protecting us from Seth, who wanted our loss.
Or as Enki protecting us from Enlil, who also wanted to end “the human experiment”. As we already understood, all these legends refer to a unique history, and their convergence support its veracity. So how come the Snake, our designer and our ally, the wisest of all animals, has become the most cunning, the most dangerous, the ‘beast’ identified to Satan in our ‘modern’ religions? According to the translators of the Nag Hammadi manuscripts, it is explained by a semantic shift.
Beast is the translation of quasi-homophones in Aramaic: haywa meaning stupid, hawa meaning to teach, and hawya meaning serpent. The gods geneticists work on human genotypes that the text calls modellings, “then the authorities called the Beast, so that she corrects the mistakes of their modellings”. The beast is not evil as she corrects the mistakes of the apprentice-sorcerers. “The true meaning of the Beast, is the Instructor, as she was thought wiser than everyone.” (source)Nag Hammadi NHC 118-25 to 30
Whether we like it or not, we are the children of the Beast. And it does not stop us from being born of Light.
