What is Gnosticism?
 
03:32
Welcome to the Virtual Alexandria, to that dream of the Gnostics and their nightmare that has become manifest in these modern times. Who are the Gnostics and why do they matter? This is where you find out, learn to write your own gospel and live your own myth. For more on this project, visit my post: https://thegodabovegod.com/what-is-gnosticism-video/ It’s based on a very approachable definition of Gnosticism, from a previous post: https://thegodabovegod.com/definition-gnosticism-even-saklas-will-get/ It includes four typical features of Gnosticism: 1. A distinction is made between the highest, unknown God and the imperfect or plainly evil creator-god, who is often identified with the God of the Bible. 2. This is often connected with an extensive description of the divine world (Pleroma), from which the essential core of human beings derives, and of disastrous “fall” of a divine being (Sophia, “Wisdom”), in this upper world. 3. As a result, humankind has become entrapped in the earthly condition of oblivion and death, from which it is saved by the revelation of Gnosis by one or more heavenly messengers. 4. Salvation is often actualized and celebrated in rituals that are performed within the gnostic community. What do you think? In my view, Gary accurately captured the essence of Gnostic spirituality. I can’t thank him enough. I certainly can and will thank all patrons and members who helped make this possible with support. Thank you! Other than that, let me know your thoughts on this content.

Finding Gnosis in Loneliness and Contemplation
 
01:11:31
Our extroverted society has vilified and made humanity incapable of dealing with the important state of being called loneliness. Social media and mass media have made us more isolated to one another, eroded our sense of real community, and robbed of us of the coping skills to handle those sacred times of inner contemplation. Great masters and artists in the past gained their Gnosis through understanding the opportunities of revelatory loneliness; but this ability is slowly vanishing under the chatter of a noisy world impeding us to glance inwardly or at the deeper sources of our being. We bring light to this dark shadow that is eroding the collective consciousness and hiding our access to the collective unconsciousness. We explore the philosophies, psychologies, and theologies that championed the holy temple of loneliness. We take example from past luminaries who found great truths and unified humanity in their voyages into the oasis of loneliness. We learn that even while in solitude we are never truly alone, and never will be.

Acharya S Discusses Death and Dying
 
50:40
With the passing of a dear friend and great scholar, Acharya, I decided to bring back permanently an interview I conducted with her in 2011. The interview was solely her idea. It never received the attention or traffic as her other discussions on Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio. It might be her most poignant talk. In her own words, Acharya S. relates her views on death and dying. More than that, she talks about how to truly live. Please consider donating to her family. Her immediate family is in need of support to cover funeral costs and many more expenses. You can donate here by purchasing her e-books at http://www.stellarhousepublishing.com/acharyapdfs.html. Her family will get 100% of your donation and you will receive digital copies of her e-books.
Mythicist Milwaukee
 
43:34
One of the rising entities in the alternative media for freethought and studies in mythology is Mythicist Milwaukee. Beyond that, it also focuses on activists pursuits like bringing light to the plight of the Yezidi and other minorities. We understand the origins and purpose of this growing organization, and how it assists modern humanity with liberating Gnosis.

The Gnosis of Rudolf Steiner
 
01:21:15
We mine the Gnosis of one of the chief esoteric exemplars of modern times: Rudolf Stiner. Our quest takes us to parallel traditions of self-awakening that include Sufism, Theosophy, and, of course, Gnosticism. More than a historical understanding of Steiner, we find the Red Pills he left behind for our transformation and liberation in a dying, mechanistic world.

The Gnostic Faustus & Lucifer Rising: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
 
59:14
The tragic story of Faustus, immortalized by several literally giants like Christopher Marlowe and Goethe, has riveted mankind for centuries. Yet most do not know that underneath this satanic romance, there is a secret Gnostic message purposely hidden that echoes the Scripture of the ancient heretics and the mythology of Simon Magus and Helen of Troy. We take a journey with Mephistopheles through the charged, esoteric vision of the legend of Faustus. Astral Guest-- Ramona Fradon, author of ‘The Gnostic Faustus'.
Magical Techniques for Navigating the New Economic Reality
 
01:05:38
Magical and spiritual discourse has failed to keep up with the economic reality. A new book aims to fix that, drawing upon ancient Gnostic and Hermetic wisdom. It also shows how to use Chaos Magic not only to navigate these trying times, but to triumph as well. Discover how to become invincible through initiation, and wage the mind war that will keep you moving toward what you really want. From sigil magic to working with spiritual allies, you will learn to act on the unwavering belief that your life should matter and you’re not going to let something as trifling as the apocalypse get in the way of it.

A Gnostic View of Suffering: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
 
01:04:52
INTERVIEW STARTS AT 20:00. BEFORE I DISCUSS THE NOTION OF SUFFERING IN VARIOUS RELIGIONS. All faiths possess their reasoning for the reality of suffering. The Gnostics claim their own unique slant, oddly paralleling other religions yet at the same time just as oddly original. Through the eyes of a brand new Gnostic Gospel, in the form of a powerful fiction novel, we explore how the Gnostics saw the origins of iniquity and other theological conundrums that to this day bring great confusion and debate among all the world's ideologies. There must be some way out of here, said the Joker to the Thief… Astral Guest-- Tim Roux, author of Fishing for Christians.
The Pleroma or Zero Point Field: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
 
01:11:49
The ancient Gnostics claimed that there existed an ultimate and idealized reality called the Pleroma, the primordial consciousness that permeated and perhaps sustained all of existence. Beyond that, it also was the roadmap in the sensible world that could grant sentient forms its supernal information, teach one the ways of eternity...also called Gnosis or perhaps Total Recall. New science reveals that the Pleroma is not just the philosophical musings of bygone heretics but an active force that can be tapped into in order to access infinite power and knowledge. In essence, the Pleroma or Zero Point Field has the potential of granting the promise of The Gnostics: to become divine while still in the flesh. Astral Guests--Anthony Peake, author of The Man Who Remembered the Future: A Life of Philip K. Dick, The Daemon and Is There Life After Death?.
Jung, Addiction and Archetypal Evil
 
01:14:41
Many are unaware that CG Jung’s ideas were instrumental in the creation of Alcoholic Anonymous. Even less know that Jung and Bill Wilson, the co-founder of AA, corresponded late in their lives. Their exchange provided unique insights into addiction, recovery, and the nature of evil. What we gained is the Gnostic solution to the problem of theodicy, as well as the means for an alchemical redemption every person can attain. Astral Guest — David Schoen, author of The War of the Gods in Addiction: C.G. Jung, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Archetypal Evil. As a bonus for members, Scott Smith, author of God Reconsidered, joins us for a Trimorphic Paranoia, sharing his own experiences with alcoholism, Jungian solutions, and cosmic iniquity.

Heretics Anonymous 3: Joe Atwill on the Hammer of the Oligarchs
 
01:32:49
In episode three of Heretics Anonymous, Joe Atwill joins us to explain how the elite have debased and manipulated society across a history they keep rewriting. From the Roman invention of orthodox religion to the banker invention of authoritarian governments, from the Mason engineering of world wars to the Nazi engineering of modern propaganda, we leave no blood-stained stone unturned. In the end, the goals of the oligarchs are ultimately about the extermination of human free thought and free will. Occult Fan joins us as well to create a Trinity of veil-lifting.

Politics and Gnosticism: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
 
01:20:10
INTERVIEW STARTS AT 17:00. Become a patron of Aeon Byte: http://www.patreon.com/aeonbyte Gnostic philosophy has greatly influenced many alternative movements in their search for individual freedom, from secret societies to enlightenment thinkers to iconic artists of modernity. But can Gnosticism assist in modern politics? It can indeed, especially since the Gnostic speculations of what forces rule the systems of the cosmos have come true, reflected on material society and its existentialist morass of alienated humanity. We delve into these speculations and attempt to find solutions within the mystic ideas of ancient heresies. Astral Guest-- Christopher Knowles, author of Our Gods Wear Spandex: The Secret History of Comic Book and The Secret History of Rock 'n' Roll.
Liberating Prometheus and Atlas
 
01:19:14
Within the empowering archetypes of Prometheus and Atlas reside the Gnosis to vanquish the nihilistic materialism and rootless rationalism of the modern West (as well as Abrahamic religious fundamentalism). This realization harnesses the soundness of alternative science and perennial philosophies — all by tapping into the Gnostic, Hermetic, Neoplatonic and other Hellenistic wisdom that promotes higher human consciousness. The results are a fiery fusion of the horizons of the Eastern and Western worlds, pointing to an integral society wherein the modern barriers between Science, Religion, Politics, and Art have been dynamited. Astral Guest — Jason Reza Jorjani, author of Prometheus and Atlas. This is a partial show.

33:43
Who exactly is the ultimate villain of the Gnostics? What are his mythological and theological origins? This is the topic in our latest Abraxas Brief, as well as how the fierce Demiurge materializes in modern culture and your own spiritual life. This show is dedicated to Stan Lee.

The Spiritual Meaning of the Sixties
 
01:18:16
We uncover the spiritual meaning that fueled the artistic, political, and social revolutions of the 1960s. This includes investigating the Gnostic, Hermetic, and Occult influences of that decade. From John Lennon’s understanding of Gnosticism to Pink Floyd’s marketing of Gnosis, we leave no acid-soaked unturned. Ultimately, we find out what went wrong with the Sixties, at the same time distilling insights that might rejuvenate our colorless times.

The Great Occultists of History: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
 
01:11:08
Occultism has greatly defined and influenced modern western culture in all aspects. We explore the major architects of the towering palace known as the Occult: Aleister Crowley, HP Blavatsky, Manly P. Hall, Colin Wilson, Carl Jung, and many others. Within the groundbreaking and provocative ideas of these mystic magicians, we will discover many parallels including their pioneering of higher states of consciousness, belief in a new age of enlightenment, and tireless quest for the liberation of humanity from oppressive earthly and unearthly forces. And as well also understand their shortcomings and dooms, even as many of them changed the very course of history. Astral Guest-- Gary Lachman, author of Revolutionaries of the Soul
Gnostic Secrets of the Naassenes: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
 
01:09:51
Become a patron of Aeon Byte: http://www.patreon.com/aeonbyte Perhaps the most enigmatic of Gnostic sects were the Serpent Worshipers, the Ophites and Naassenes-- who saw the Snake in the Garden of Eden as an incarnation of Sophia or Jesus Christ. Of these heretics there is little remaining in a censoring history won by the victors, except for a Naassene Psalm that reveals a penetrating view of early alternative Christianity and primordial Gnosis. We delve into the mysticism of the dangerous Serpent Worshipers, understanding how their forbidden message is as relevant today as it was in an era of rising Orthodoxy and crumbling empires. Astral Guest-- Mark Gaffney, author of Gnostic Secrets of the Naassenes: The Initiatory Teachings of the Last Supper.
Creating Christ
 
01:21:28
A new book, decades in the making, provides pioneering scholarship on how Roman authorities manufactured Christianity. The work presents archeological evidence as well. Beyond understanding the origins of Christianity, we explore the historicity of Jesus, various Pagan mysteries, and ancient social engineering that still affects society today. Astral Guests – James. Valiant and Warren Fahy, authors of Creating Christ: How Roman Emperors Invented Christianity. Astral Guest Cohost – Robert M.

The Gnosis of Philip K Dick and CG Jung
 
01:17:05
Two chief Gnostic revealers of modern times are Philip K. Dick and CG Jung. We parallel and contrast their lives, visions, cosmologies, and prophecies. Above these two giants of mystic heresy, we encounter and experience the sanity-destroying figure of Abraxas. By delving into Dick’s The Exegesis and Jung’s The Red Book, the labyrinth that is existence opens up to the discovery of the soul and the truth of sensible reality.

Are Gnostics World Haters?
 
32:31
The great question and the argument is complicated. The answers will hopefully disturb and then amaze you. From the Sethians to the Hermetics, from the Manichaeans to the Cathars, it's a rainbow of rebellion against a world that was, oddly enough, deeply loved by these heretics.

Chaos Magic, Animism & the Fall of the West
 
01:13:03
The title is ambitious and perhaps even provocative, but it makes perfect sense as we present the last interview of our trilogy with Gordon White. We cover the themes of the last two discussions—based on his new books Star.Ships and The Chaos Protocols—bringing it all together to ignite awakening in these chaotic times by using Chaos Magic and Gnostic/Hermetic philosophy. We also delve into the latest in Ufology, Occultism, and runaway Materialism, also bringing it together to gain the tools to survive the rapid devolution of western culture. Lastly, we promote the vital understanding of Simon Magus as a luminary for anyone involved in magic or just common sense. Astral Guest—Gordon White, author of Pieces of Eight.

The Ancient War Between Gnostics and Neoplatonists
 
01:19:50
The Gnostics were seen as a widely dangerous faith to the Abrahamic and Asian faiths. Yet their subversive ideas also brought the ire of Pagan dispensations, including Neoplatonism. Their conflict was rather symbiotic, and ultimately shaped not only modern Esoterica but modern orthodox religions. We explore what exactly made Plotinus and other philosophers so irate at the Sethian cosmic anarchy; as well as some of the latest scholarship on the usefulness of the term Gnosticism, the pre-Christian origins of the Gnostics, and the very notion of Gnosis itself. Ultimately, we go into the heart of the Alien God and his entrance into a dying world. Astral Guest—Dylan Burns, author of Apocalypse of the Alien God

Elevating Consciousness and Light Healing
 
01:16:36
Gnosis informs us that from a young age are programmed and socially engineered by various forces. How do we see past false realities while discovering our true selves? As with ancient mystic sages, but with some modern innovations, we embrace theories and techniques that expand our awareness, clear our emotions, and connect our souls to higher frequencies that instill a state of oneness and peace.

The Sethian Gnostics
 
01:14:22
Become a patron of Aeon Byte: http://www.patreon.com/aeonbyte. We delve deeply into the origins, influence and theology of Sethian Gnosticism. Not only was Sethianism the fountainhead of so many Gnostic schools in antiquity, including the Valentinians, Mandaeans & Manichaeans, they might be the Christianity before Christianity. We also discuss the ideas of other Gnostic sectarians like the Ophites and Barbelorites; and the intimate theology behind the Sethian Gospel of Judas and other so-called Gnostic texts. Astral Guest: John Turner, author of ‘Sethian Gnosticism and The Platonic Tradition’, Professor of Religious Studies at The University of Nebraska & one of the original translators of the Nag Hammadi Library.
The Egyptian Origins of Gnosticism
 
26:09
Most assume the Jewish, Zoroastrian, and Greek origins of Gnosticism. However, by overlooking that the Gnostics were the direct carriers of older mysteries from Egypt, we miss the essence of their teachings. In many ways, these teachings go against all western theology. Perhaps Gnosis is primarily the ability to awaken a primordial serpent that humans have forgotten.
Occult Messages in Movies: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
 
01:15:56
The medium of film has been a powerful conduit for contraband Esoterica, from the Theosopy of The Wizard of Oz to the Gnostic Gospel of The Matrix, from the Gnosis of Ed Wood to the dark magick of James Bond. We explore occult themes in movies, as well as their forbidden gifts message and arcane symbolism, revealing incredible mythological vistas to spiritual freedom. Astral Guest-- Robert Sullivan, author of Cinema Symbolism and The Royal Arch of Enoch.
Near Death Experiences
 
52:58
We take a dual approach to understand the phenomenon of Near Death Experiences. On one hand, we study the sober science behind those who have returned from clinical death. On the other hand, one of our guests relates a personal journey from the hardnosed CEO of a multimillion dollar company to a born-again mystic—all after a near death experience that revealed the secrets of the cosmos. In between, we find ancient Gnostic philosophy that can lead us back to our Daemon or Higher Self. This part of our Schrodinger’s Diary series, where we study alternative science and the mysteries of consciousness.

Dark Occult and Social Engineering
 
01:14:32
Western culture continues to devolve, likely by the eugenic hands of magicians and oligarchs in high places. Society is on the brink of collective madness. We quest for the unseen and “hidden in plain sight” archons that have engineered our consciousness — many of them sacred cows in esoteric circles. As with our guest, this grim discovery also leads us to find our inner Aeon.

Mythos, Cosmos & Astrotheology
 
01:16:16
The study of mythology has been stranded in three faulty paradigms for generations: • The ancients were savage savages with rare access to good ideas (Darwin Paradigm) • The ancients were noble savages with open access to the archetypal/spiritual dimensions (Campbell Paradigm) • The ancients were neutral savages with access to alien technology (UFO Paradigm) A bold new paradigm reexamines ancient myths through the template of oral thinking and oral cosmology—ultimately offering a clearer and more awe-inspiring understanding of ancient civilizations. We explore this paradigm, as well gain novel, thought-provoking insights into such enigmatic notions as the Flood Myth, the Epic of Gilgamesh, Archeology, Egyptian mysticism, the origins of the Gnostics and much more.

The Thunder: Perfect Mind
 
01:08:32
Many literary experts contend that one of the greatest poems in history is the Nag Hammadi library’s The Thunder, Perfect Mind. We explore this enigmatic but poignant text for timeless insights on the dignity of all humans and liberation from oppression. Who exactly is the divine but tragic female protagonist of this work? What is the background behind Thunder that ignited a unique message of individuality? Is it even Gnostic or a general treatise on ultimate awakening?

The Secret Teachers of the Western World
 
01:24:32
Since the dawn of civilization, Gnostic individuals have preserved the living flames of the Esoterica. These sages, mystics and madmen guarded the ideals of Sophia in all ages, as well as battled the human tendency to construct a mechanical world. We take a journey through time and imagination, from Pythagoras to CG Jung, in order to understand these caretakers of the cosmos and gain their enigmatic Gnosis.

Strieber, Dick, Castaneda and other Prisoners of Infinity
 
01:11:12
What if Whitley Strieber, Philip K. Dick, Carlos Castaneda, and other modern magical thinkers were creations of MKUltra laboratories? What if their work was part of a plot to manifest the dark apocalypses of transhumanism, AI, and eugenics? We explore these and other possibilities — even peering behind the curtains of Ufology and the Occult to catch Moloch men and their social engineering machinations.

Accessing the Pleroma
 
01:15:14
The Gnostics referred to the ultimate reality as The Pleroma, accessible to only those who had, as William Blake said, cleansed the doors of perception. For normal individuals, the Pleroma is only experienced in fleeting glimpses. For others, the doors of perception are fully opened by certain neurological processes starting with migraine and progressing through various altered states such as temporal lobe epilepsy, bi-polar syndrome, autism, and schizophrenia. We quest for the ways to manage these disorders, ultimately finding the universal means of accessing the Pleroma as the shamanistic Gnostics once freely did. This is part of our Schrodinger’s Diary Series, where we mine the Reality behind reality and the secrets of consciousness with the latest science and philosophy.

In this series, we explore the Minimal Jesus Myth Theory—the hypothesis arguing for the Mystery Religion aspects of Paul and the other apostles (surprisingly including Simon Peter); and how these individuals believed that Jesus was a hypostasis of God crucified by Archons in heavenly dimensions. We also reexamine other Mythicist theories (including some of their weaknesses) and consider the latest arguments of those who propose a historical Jesus (and how they fall short in the end). And we get into the issues of how the Gnostics play into this ongoing debate.

CG Jung, Alcoholism and Me
 
30:44
The Abraxas Brief #3: My death and resurrections in alcoholism and addiction. Includes the interplay of Bill Wilson and CG Jung, in both letters and in my life. And yes, the possible Gnostic themes in Alcoholics Anonymous, which like many American spiritualities is a stew of esoteric meats.

The Gnosis of CG Jung
 
59:19
Although known as one of the fathers of depth psychology, Jung is arguably the chief Gnostic Master of the 20th Century. Not only do we burrow into the life, contributions and esoteric leanings of the Swiss Magician, we also bring new light to upcoming evidence that might make him the greatest mystic in the last hundred years. Astral Guest—Stephan Hoeller, author of ‘The Gnostic Jung and the Seven Sermons to the Dead’, ‘Gnosticism: New Light on the Ancient Tradition of Inner Knowing’ and ‘Jung and the Lost Gospels’
The Left-Hand Path
 
01:10:59
Since the dawn and sunsets of religions, the Left-Hand Path has thrived in the shadows of Orthodoxy. It has always embraced Luciferian truths, Morning Star theologies, and Promethean liberation. The Gnostics, despite some of their own orthodoxies, were the ultimate Left-Hand Path movement of history. We explore the contraband essence of the Left-Hand Path—along with some novel occult concepts that can bring about the fierce awakening for the 21st century human. These includes both ancient and progressive notions as the Daemon, Black Gnosis, Ancestor Guidance, Pandemonium, and Temple of Set ideology. Astral Guest—Edward Pandemonium, author of The Black Ship and Building the Living Temple.
French Occult and Gnostic Masters
 
01:17:53
In the 19th century, a French occult movement flourished in Paris that forever transformed the landscape of esoteric spirituality. Without it, there might have not been a Golden Dawn or Theosophy. Beyond that, France has always been a hotbed of heretical religion. We journey into the ideas and impact of French Occultism, from Eliphas Levi to Papias, from the resurgence of Freemasonry to the renewal of the Rosicrucians, and everything in between. Furthermore, we understand the French Gnostic Church revival that set the foundation for both women and human rights in modern times. Astral Guest—Tobias Churton, author of Occult Paris.

Aeon Byte Live 10: The Matrix 20th Anniversary Discussion
 
01:07:47
Live discussion of The Matrix – which celebrates its 20th anniversary. What is the film’s cultural and spiritual legacy? What were the influences behind this pioneering work? Is it really just a documentary? Is it even a good movie or Gnostic in any meaningful way. Jasun Horsley, Chris Knowles, and guests arrive to the Virtual Alexandria to discuss this modern Gnostic gospel.

Anarchism and Gnosticism: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
 
01:06:28
INTERVIEW STARTS AT 16:00. And become a patron of Aeon Byte: http://www.patreon.com/aeonbyte Although mostly nonpolitical, the ancient Gnostics might find today civic kinship with the modern Anarchist movements. After all, the ancient Gnostics rejected all earthly and heavenly systems, demanding that their divine spark (rights) remain solely with the individual; and that all power corrupted and thus needed to be negated or pushed back against the establishments in one way or another. We make the case for Anarchism being the political home for any modern Gnosticism, in a world collapsing under the weight of vast and grinding and rusty political machines. Astral Guest-- Robert Bonomo, author of Your Love Incomplete and Cactus Land.
A Gnostic View of the Soul: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
 
57:27
Two of the most important and beautiful Nag Hammadi Scriptures dealing with the fall and redemption of the soul are The Hymn of the Pearl & the Exegesis on the Soul. They possess mythic themes and cosmology that truly represent our story as spirits on a great adventure across the spheres of reality. We also go beyond these texts to explore the radical view of the soul held by the Gnostics, and as well those by other mystic faiths like the ancient Egyptians and Greeks. Astral Guest: Andrew Philip Smith author of Gnostic Writings on the Soul.
An Introduction to Christian Gnosticism
 
59:31
Hallelujah! We permanently resurrect our first ever interview in all of our channels. Back then, the technology was shoddy and my knowledge of Gnosticism was less than pneumatic—but Bob’s Sophia and Logos brought down the heavens themselves. He set the tone for Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio. He set a strong foundation in understanding Christian Gnosticism, the usefulness of the word Gnosticism itself, and the impact of the Gnostics on early Christianity and beyond. Furthermore, His Geekiness taught us that Gnosticism works extremely well as a secular philosophy in these days of runaway fundamentalism and rank societal corruption; and much of what is taught about the Gnostics today is faulty. What are we celebrating by the release of this show? The awakening of the individual, of course!

Solomonic Magic and Astral Travel
 
58:45
Gnosticism has a pagan cousin called Hermetism, which was influential in ancient times, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment Period and most of today’s Occult Studies. We explore this essential prism of the Gnostics and how it influenced modern Magick in many of its variations. We also give a lesson on Solomonic Magic and how to Astral Travel from the comfort of your own home. Astral Guest: Aaron Leitch author of Secrets of the Magickal Grimoires: The Classical Texts of Magick Deciphered.
These Are Gnostic Times
 
01:29:20
The Gnostic nightmare seems to have come true in modern times. Humanity suffers under oppressive, surveillance, and stagnant systems, ruled by godlike overlords that stifle creativity and individuality. As some have said, it’s Philip K. Dick world. How did this happen and what can be done to break the bonds of the Archons? Our guest offers solutions and insights into dissolving the veils of the Matrix and restoring Sophia. Beyond Gnosis for the ages, we find that 2017 is indeed a year of the Apocalypse — while 2018 brings possibility but also more psychic death in the forms of transhumanism, transgenics, and a holographic geopolitical world. No one gets out of here sane. Astral Guest — Chris Knowles, author of Our Heroes Wear Spandex and The Secret History of Rock’n’Roll. This is a partial show.

Saving Christianity
 
56:15
The Abrahamic faiths are on a collision course. Churches are empty across the Western World. Christianity has become a mile long but an inch thin, faltering under a fast-changing society of science, reason, and logic. Is this the beginning of the end for the world’s largest religion, or can the old approach of the Gnostics transform its tenets into a liberating force of body, mind, and spirit for the 21st Century human? And perhaps this transformation might influence the other Abrahamic faiths before we are plunged into another World War/Crusade.

Human Sacrifice in the Bible: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
 
01:07:16
Martyrdom, Holy War and Complete Obedience to the violent laws of the God of the OT have been part of the Matrix of all the Abrahamic Religions since their conception. The root is more than likely Abraham's loyalty in sacrificing his son in the name of God without question or second thought. This story has psychologically given the Abrahamic religions excuses to commit atrocities in the name of the righteous patriarch because of a subconscious duty to symbolically follow God into a barbaric ritual that was actually wide spread in the ancient world—including Judaism. We try to understand the seeds of this attitude that has gone so far the three Abrahamic religions are on a collision course to sacrifice their young without the worry of an intervening angel. Astral Guest-- Bruce Chilton, author of 'Abraham's Curse', 'Rabbi Paul' and 'Mary Magdalene'.
Silly Rabbit Misconceptions About Gnosticism (The Abraxas Brief)
 
39:08
Time to briefly deal with all the "myths" about the Gnostics. Where they antisemitic? Believed in world domination? World haters? This and more.
