is that humanity is in a fallen state and trapped in a flawed world. You
obviously don't agree with this. That's fine. But why are you discussing
it on a Gnosticism forum? It's not unlike going to a Mosque and politely
informing the worshippers there that Allah doesn't exist.

I cannot remember the name of his book, but Flammarion was into the
Occult and Metaphysical, more or less Theosophical in tone if I
remember right, so he may have consciously altered the older 16th
Century image to suit his more modern Occult outlook. Just another
coincidence, though perhaps. AFAIK, he was not involved in the late
19th century French Gnostic movement, though I could be wrong on
