- Aug 30, 2004On the Demiurge...
Is the demiurge a construct of the human mind as "Jehovah", or is it
real metaphysical transcendent being?
I'd like some feedback on archetypes and metaphysics... How is God
viewed? As a transcendent, metaphysical being? Or an archetype? Or
both? I've always thought that the metaphysical realm and the
archetypal (sp?) realm coincide with each other to produce mystic
experiences. (Can there be more than one "gnosis"?) Thoughts and
comments are greatly appreciated.
I'm going for the Valentinian POV if anyone wants to know.
I know that's a mouthfull, but still.
Also, while I'm at it, I might as well say that the Gnostic community
is one I plan to stay with. I've seen that it is very, VERY friendly
and open to new-comers. I've also seen the oppression we face by
Christians and non-Christians. I'm very proud to say I'm a Gnostic
Christian and I hope to learn much and maybe have a mystic experience
myself soon. It's been a great joy of mine to understand just what
communication with and interaction with The Divine is all about...
Gnostics take it back to it's roots, when time with God was holy and
unadulterated, no sound or anything... Wow, it's just overwhelming to
even talk about. Anywho, I'm sure you guys are tired of me being a
Comments are appreciated. :D
Christ is holy,
