    I agree with Kari. Most of the discussions since I have been a member have been filled with jargon that was beyond me. Richard

        Hey Richard

        You state...

        This is something we would like to change, but unfortunately it
        isn't completely possible in every case. When talking about
        traditional Gnosticism we will often find terms that most people are
        not familiar with initially... just as a person from western culture
        may not always be initially familiar with Buddhist terms. It isn't
        that the terms are overly lofty or difficult, but they are important
        communication tools.

        What I would like to encourage for people like you and Kari who are
        feeling uncomfortable with these kinds of terms, is fo feel very
        comfortable to ask. One of the functions of this forum is to help
        bridge the communication gap between the specialist (who often
        forget that the jargon is obscure) and people who are more recently
        interested in Gnostic thought (who can be frustrated by the jargon).
        To bridge that gap we deal with both ends... helping the specialist
        to speak to a wider readership, and helping the layperson learn the
        lingo of the specialist.
