Amazingly, whatever the significance of their content—and we have yet to comprehend what that might be—the Nag Hammadi Codices (NHC) are the earliest surviving examples of bound books. Close reading of these arcane materials shows that Gnostics, as teachers in the ancient Mysteries were called, were deeply concerned with an alien intrusion upon humankind.
Entities they called “Archons” appear to be identical to the ETs of modern UFOlogy. The codices indicate both Gray and reptilian types: namely, a reptilian or “drakonic” type and and a neonate type, suggested by the image of a prematurely born fetus. The former are the overlords, the latter, servile, robotic drones who obey a hive-mentality. The NHC do not contain graphic physical descriptions of these alien intruders, but present ample information to profile them comparatively with the two types of ETs most widely discussed today.
Although archons do exist physically, the real danger they pose to humanity is not invasion of the planet but invasion of the mind.
The archons are intrapsychic mind-parasites who access human consciousness through telepathy and simulation. They infect our imagination and use the power of make-believe for deception and confusion. Their pleasure is in deceit for its own sake, without a particular aim or purpose. They are robotic in nature, incapable of independent thought or choice, and have no particular agenda, except to live vicariously through human beings. They are bizarrely able to pretend an effect on humans, which they do not really have.
For instance, they cannot access human genetics, but they can pretend to do so, in such a way that humans fall for the pretended act, as if staged events were taken for real. In this respect, archons are the ultimate hoaxers. This is the essence of “archontic intrusion,” as I call it. The trick is, if humanity falls under the illusion of superhuman power, it becomes as good as real, a self-fulfilling delusion.
In the cosmic perspective, the archons present a dynamic aspect of the evolutionary scenario of humankind, through which human potential is tested. The Gnostic view of their role closely matches the “flyers” in The Active Side of Infinity, the last book of Carlos Castaneda, who says that the flyers are “the means by which the universe tests us.” There are numerous close parallels between Castaneda and Gnostic teachings.
A Cosmic Error
The sacred creation story of the Mysteries (Sophia Mythos) explains that the archons arise due to an anomaly in the cosmic order.
“The world system we inhabit came about by a mistake” (NHC II, 3:75.5).
This startling line alludes to the Gnostic view that the planetary system we inhabit resulted from the impact of a massive power surge from the galactic center—in mythological terms, the “fall” of the goddess Sophia.
Sweeping over a region of lifeless atomic matter in the galactic limbs, this tsunami of core energy produced a planetary system complete with a resident species, the locust-like archons. At first the planetary system was a merely whirlpool of agitated matter, like a beehive under construction with bees swarming around it. Then it became centered on a newborn star, the sun of our solar system.
The fallen goddess myth says that the earth was not formed in the same manner as the rest of the solar system. The other planets conglomerated from vast fields of inert atomic dust, but the earth grew organically from the original plume of core energy; that is, from Sophia’s alive, animating, self-awareness, a pure torrent of galactic luminosity (Organic Light).
Weird as it might sound, this view is not incompatible with modern astronomy.
Science affirms that the solar system at large is dominated by inorganic chemistry that does not support life as it occurs in the terrestrial biosphere, where organic chemistry is the norm. This being so, how did the organic, life-bearing part of the solar system, the planet earth, evolve from the non-organic part that does not support life as it appears in the terrestrial habitat?
Are we to assume that the anomaly of organic life within the solar system evolved from the inorganic planetary matrix, and that Life evolved from the non-living? If that were so, how it could happen has not been demonstrated or proven by science. It has been assumed as a dogma (called abiogenesis), but not proven.
Were they here today, Gnostics would argue that the solar system has two distinct dynamics, organic and inorganic, because the earth is the metamorphosis of a surge of super-alive animating power from the galactic center, while the solar system, the habitat of the archons, is the product of inert atomic matter impacted by that surge. The observation of the difference between the inorganic and organic aspects of our solar system led James Lovelock to formulate the Gaia Hypothesis. In my book, “Not in His Image,” I show how key points of Gaia theory correlate to the Gnostic cosmology of the gallen goddess, Sophia.
Sophia is the name Gnostics gave to the animating intelligence of the earth before it become this planet. In their view, the cosmic origin of our planet is present to us here and now as wisdom, the living, all-informing intelligence of nature.
The “Reptilian Agenda” propounded by David Icke and others is an extrapolation of the Sumerian cuneiform story. If the Gnostic critique of the Annunaki script is correct, this would amount to the unwitting perpetuation of an ancient hoax.
Icke and others such as Michael Tsarion and Jordan Maxwell appear to be completely uninformed about Gnostic teachings on the archons. If so, they cannot benefit from the critical commentary of those veteran seers and clairvoyants, the initiates of the Mystery Schools.
The Serpentine Wisdom Endowment
Whatever the threat to humanity, real or imagined, coming from reptilians such as the scaly overlord of the Gnostic archons, the gift of the serpent power is clear. In all esoteric systems, eastern and western, the serpent is the agent and symbol of wisdom—Sophia. In Asia and the Western Mysteries, masters of the coiling energy were called “serpents of wisdom.”
They were teachers, healers, and guides, not power-crazed theocrats or tyrants who claimed descent from alien serpent gods. Gnostic initiates and their counterparts in the ancient world never claimed to be descendents of off-planet deities, as theocratic rulers did, citing the Annunaki script.
The benevolent and healing serpent power is a spiritual birthright that bonds the human species directly to the planetary goddess. Kundalini is essential to the wisdom endowment that nature has implanted in us for sanity. Countless myths attest to the beauty and power of the serpentine connection. Eve, the instructor, did not merely eat the forbidden fruit presented by the snake in Eden. She herself is an instrument of the serpent power. The role of this power as a teacher, healer, and visionary guide to the human species is immeasurably great, and the record of its presence stands out everywhere in ancient mythology, mystical and esoteric traditions, and indigenous lore.
To confound the divinely endowed serpentine power integral to our biopsychic functions with the alien reptilian menace is grotesque, a ridiculous error. The difference between the two is as clear as day, once it is pointed out. No one doing research into ancient esoteric and mythological lore could fail to note that difference
Gnostics from the Mysteries taught that we must recognize our benign serpentine endowment to face the intrusive reptilian influence.
Today we hear the wildest claims regarding reptilians, how they manipulated us genetically in ancient times, their horrific rites and shape-shifting powers, how they are running the world, etc. Unfortunately, most of the chatter on the reptilian agenda ends up providing hype for the scaly intruders, who are enormously overrated, I would warn. Gnostics taught that the signature of the archons is HAL, the Coptic word for “simulation.” They warned us in no uncertain terms to distinguish between what the archons can actually do, and what they merely simulate with the alien technology of VR, virtual reality.
These cosmic cousins of ours may be lolling in perverse delight at bringing humanity down to their level, turning us into monsters of aggression and conformity, slavish control-freaks. But their game or test is not what it appears to be, if they prevail by tricking us to annihilate ourselves. What if arch-CON looming power over us depends upon the CON we perpetrate in our own minds, giving our power away to them?
It will be impossible to see the truth of the archontic test unless we recognize and own the wisdom that comes down to us from genuine adepts of the Mysteries, men and women who mastered the serpent power, kundalini.
Imagination fuelled by kundalini gives total immunity to alien intrusion, as Gnostics taught.
No ancient royal court was without a “Chaldean” or psychic medium, if not a whole team. Is it surprizing that psychics advising the theocrats would produce a story to please their masters: specifically, a story making the tryants out to be descendents of “gods” and, at the same time, slaves (albeit privileged ones) to the higher race that claims to have created them? This message is schizophrenically ambivalent, and as such totally consistent with the split-mind bias of channeled material and the mentality that produces it.
Reptilians may appear to be running the show, but this can be so only if human complicity, and credulity, enable them to maintain the illusion of power they do not have.
In reality, the “authorities” rule by the power of illusion, not actual and veracious power. Gnostics would insist that actual power on earth comes from the earth through humanity’s bond to the planetary goddess whose name is wisdom, “Sophia”, and whose instrument is serpentine.
The Gnostics who detected the archons were experts in parapsychology and had a cosmic perspective centered on the divine intelligence of the earth. They learned directly from disciplined trance instruction giving them access to the planetary mind.
They incorporated their learning in thousands of books and founded spiritual universities where they served as the teachers and vocational advisors of the ancient world. They preserved in imagination and practice the connection to the divine source of our species, the Pleroma, or galactic center.
