What is this all about... ?

What is a human being? What is life? Can science give us reliable answers to such questions? The electricity of life. The meaning of human consciousness. Are we alone? Are the traditional contests between science and religion still relevant? Does the word "spirit" still hold meaning today?

What is this all about... ?

The book of the dead:

All these things were done to protect the physical body against damp, dry
rot and decay, and against the attacks of moth, beetles, worms and wild animals.

But these were not the only enemies of the dead against which precautions had to
be taken, for both the mummified body and the spiritual elements which had
inhabited it upon earth had to be protected from a multitude of devils and fiends,
and from the powers of darkness generally.
These powers of evil had hideous and terrifying shapes and forms, and their haunts
were well known, for they infested the region through which the road of the dead
lay when passing from this world to the Kingdom of Osiris. The "great gods" were
afraid of them, and were obliged to protect themselves by the use of spells and
magical names, and words of power, which were composed and written down by Thoth.

In fact it was believed in very early times in Egypt that Ra the Sun-god owed his
continued existence to the possession of a secret name with which Thoth had
provided him. And each morning the rising sun was menaced by a fearful monster
called Aapep, , which lay hidden under the place of sunrise waiting to swallow
up the solar disk.

It was impossible, even for the Sun-god, to destroy this "Great Devil," but by
reciting each morning the powerful spell with which Thoth had provided him he
was able to paralyse all Aapep's limbs and to rise upon this world. Since then
the "great gods," even though benevolently disposed towards them, were not able
to deliver the dead from the devils that lived upon the "bodies, souls, spirits,
shadows and hearts of the dead," the Egyptians decided to invoke the aid of Thoth
on behalf of their dead and to place them under the protection of his almighty
spells.

Inspired by Thoth the theologians of ancient Egypt composed a large number of
funerary texts which were certainly in general use under the IVth dynasty
(about 3700 B.C.), and were probably well known under the Ist dynasty, and
throughout the whole period of dynastic history Thoth was regarded as the author
of the "Book of the Dead."


Aapep was depicted as reptile. Sometimes as snake, sometimes a crocodile.

Se also "The great cat of Helipolis defaeting Aapep" or the
"Eagle defeating the snake" or Genesi's Lost Paradise.

The Animals mastered it, the humans obviously not.

The world of a hunter is easy. There is prey and predators.
The one you kill and eat, from the others you run or find
any strategy to defend yourself. No good, no evil. Just
wilderness.

We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos and
took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners.
The predator is our lord and master. It has rendered us docile,
helpless.
If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to
act independently, it demands that we dont do so...

We believe that the predators have given us our systems of beliefs,
our ideas of good and evil, our social mores. They are the ones who
set up our hopes and expectations and dreams of success or failure.
They have given us covetousness, greed and cowardice. It is the
predators who make us complacent, routinary and egomaniacal.


Gnostic writings contain descriptions of alien predators called Archons,
Arkontai in Greek. The texts from Nag Hammadi describe them as heavy,
elusive, shadowy creatures.


Nag Hammadi Library,
a collection of thirteen ancient codices containing over fifty texts, was
discovered in upper Egypt in 1945.

They do NOT have a physical body. They are NOT reptiles, they just
show patterns of repile behavior. Food and sleep. Just that simple.

He asserts that the shaows mind has no concentration whatsoever.
This remark recalls the Gnostic assertion that the Archons have no ennoia,
no will of their own, no intentionality. Concentration might be defined as
the coordination of attention and intention. To concentrate is to bring a
certain depth of attention (Bythos) to intent (Ennoia). In Gnostic teachings,
Bythos and Ennoia are cosmic deities or principles of the Pleroma, the Wholeness,
and they are also attributes of the human mind.
They are symbolized as two spheres. To concentrate is to bring the two spheres
together at a single, unifying point, a common center. We do this constantly when
we focus our attention upon a certain intention or goal, but the Archons are
incapable of anything like this because they have no concentration whatsoever.
They have no concentrating power, no innate faculty that would unite intention
with attention. Human resistence to their intrusion depends on inner composure
and mental discipline, the sobriety of the warrior.


He tells that the predators mind is a cheap model: economy strength,
one size fits all.
This description fits the hive-mentality of the Archons.

The Gnostic master instructs a student in how to confront the Archons.
These predatory entities are said to abduct souls by night, a precise
description of modern ET abductions. The adept in the Mysteries learns to
repel the Archons with magical formulas (mantras) and magical passes or
gestures of power (mudras). In some texts, the encounter with the Archons
is structured according to the system of planetary spheres.
The adept who practices astral projection, lucid dreaming or manipulations
of the double is said to face the Archons in a kind of computer-game maze
of seven levels, corresponding to the seven planets.


The shadows are an essential part of the universe and they must be taken
as what they really are awesome, monstrous.
They are the means by which the universe tests us.


What can we do about the topic of topics, predation?

All we can do is discipline ourselves to the point where they will not touch us,
he advises. Significantly, he says will not, not can not.
He also says that the alien predators are the way the universe tests us, as just
noted. It follows that the intent to arrange our minds and lives so that the
Shadows/Archons are not willing to intrude on us is the capital exercise,
the primary test in progress for humanity.


Based on this i d like to suggest that most of ancient sybolism depicts
some sort of ranking withing the 7-level arcon maze.

Merry christmas and a happy 2010.

Hi Mague,
And welcome back.
May I ask where these quotes came from? Whoever wrote them is seriously misrepresenting the philosophy of both the Egyptians and the various Gnostic sects.
If I have the least bit of knowledge
I will follow the great Way alone
and fear nothing but being sidetracked.
The great Way is simple
but people delight in complexity.
Tao Te Ching, 53.

Hi Grey Cloud,

i am not exactly back. I was on a google rampage and one of the hits was your decline of the moderator job :)
It made me smile, because todays aura viewers are able to see the colored circles above peoples heads and the snake head like shape on the forhead is "visible" as well. Buzzards and hawks show "golden pyramid" shaped items above their heads. This is just the result of spiritiual evolution.

The above is a wild mix of anything. Only the first quote is a copy'n paste from an online copy of the book of the dead. Take it for what is is or not is. The story currently is that some peoples spiritual energy isnt exceeding the height of their ankles, because the "galactic monads" are feasting on them. And the others re-develop a level where people again look similar to the egypt headdress ;)

I am off again. I was just dropping some holiday greetings. You know i have rarely an explanation. Either i "see" it or people i trust 100% into see something and tell me, but you might send me an email if there is anything to "describe".

The illusion from which we are seeking to extricate ourselves is not that constituted by the realm of space and time, but that which comes from failing to know that realm from the standpoint of a higher vision. -L.H.
