In most cultures there are two or three creation stories.
There are two in the Bible. In the Garden
of Eden story of Chapter 2: God is
trying to think of ways to entertain Adam, whom he has
created to be his Gardener's assistant , to take care of his garden. That is an
old, old story that was borrowed from
ancient Sumer. The gods wanted somebody to take care
of their garden and cultivate the food
that they needed, so they created man.
That's the background of the
myth of Chapters 2 and 3 in the book of Genesis. But the
gardener of Yahweh is bored. So
Yahweh tries to invent toys for man.
Yahweh creates the animals, but all
the man can do is name them. Then Yahweh thinks of this grand idea of
drawing the soul of woman out of Adam's own body - which is a very different
creation story than that found in
Chapter 1 of book of Genesis,
where God created Adam and Eve
together in the image of Himself as male and
female. There God is Himself the primordial

"When the deep
meaning of things is not understood the mind's essential peace is disturbed to no avail.
The Way is perfect like vast space where nothing
is lacking and nothing is in excess. Indeed, it is due to our choosing
to accept or reject that we do not see the true
nature of things. Live neither in the entanglements of outer things, nor in
inner feelings of emptiness. Be serene without striving activily to enter into
the oneness of things and erroneous views will disappear by themselves.
When you try to stop
activity to achieve passivity your very effort fills you with activity. As
long as you remain in one extreme or the other you will never know Oneness.
Those who do not live in the single Way fail
in both activity and passivity, assertion and denial. Do not remain in the
dualistic state; avoid such pursuits carefully. If there is a trace of this and
that, the right and wrong, the mind-essence will be lost in
distraction. Although all dualities
come from the One, do not be attached even to this One.
When mind exists
undisturbed in the Way, nothing in the world can offend, and when a thing can
no longer offend it ceases to concern. When no discriminating thoughts
arise, the old way of thinking ceases to exist. All dualities come from
ignorant inference." - Hsin

Gnosis is simply knowing reality

overlays to 'see' aspects of reality as they truly are. The single most

At some point
after the Hebrews were dislocated to
Babylon, the notion of a
Savior or Messiah arose, foreshadowing the rise, fall and rebirth of the
Zaddikim in a modified form.
In a splinter fanatic sect of the deposed Hasmonean dynasty Sadducee
High Priesthood, the Zaddikim, a
ponerological school of thought began to form. The
Zaddikim synthesized Hebrew with
Gnostic Mystery tradition mythology, producing rather distinctive variations on
the more ancient forms. This approach was, from the beginning, contaminated by
certain elements that allowed it to be easily distorted psychologically. Those
familiar with ponerology can
understand those elements as the work of
psychopaths or social engineers
with little understanding of human
nature played out over time.
"Moritz Friedlander put forth the
thesis that Gnosticism is a pre-Christian phenomenon which originated in
antinomian circles in the Hebrew community of
Alexandria. Christian Gnosticism
is simply a secondary version of the older Gnosticism' which attached itself to
the emergent Christian sect and appropriated for itself
the figure of Jesus
Christ." - Birger Pearson
Elements present in Alexanderian Hebrew
"historical scripture" included:
ponerological aspects of the State
religions of the Hellenized Egyptians and Hebrews;

tactics of the Gnostic Mystery traditions;

influence of the cosmopolitan Greek
world, Hebrew mystics sought to find greater depth in Hebrew "history". An
allegedly chain of historical prophecies was developed and blended to support a
historical Israel created to support the agenda of a religious
priesthood-clique seeking power. A fake history of Israel was produced from
diverse tribal tales and legends, genealogies adapted, edited, corrected,
redacted, combined, added to and added in to show that a very disparate group
were really "one" - instant ancient history leading all the way back to !
The Alexanderian Hebrew
mythmakers, the Pharisees, declared their "history" to be the literal
historical truth but it was already compounded with mystical allegory. The
Saducees, Zaddikim fanatics, then
claimed to be the inheritors of secret mystical teachings passed down from
their own great Gnostic master, Moshe
Rabbenu. The Alexanderian Hebrew mythmakers claimed that
the great Pagan philosophers
had originally received their wisdom from Moshe Rabbenu and that all intellectual
advances came from the Hebrews.
In a world that came to be dominated by
a Zaddikim version of history, many
things are obscure and incomprehensible due to a single element - Alexanderian
Hebrew mythmakers stole the religious history of other cultures as
Hamurabbi did in Babylon including
Sumeria and, of course,
Babylonian - claiming to
have it all first.
These early Alexanderian Hebrew mythmakers may have
recognized the slow-acting poison of
a schizoidal element which
had already been incorporated into the Hebrew history - now the idea was to
exorcise any schizoidal
elements allegorically with exegesis.
allegory on allegory only muddles the metaphor, particularly cross-culturally,
as the allegory originated in the myths of other cultures! So, in their
re-working and re-combining of the Gnostic Mysteries and Hebrew 'histories',
these Alexandrian Hebrew mythmakers may not have realized that they had
re-included the poison of the schizoid in their system.

of thought which snythesized different elements of other cultures myths two of

The Hebrew Gnostic
Philo of Alexandria,
also known as "the Pythagorean," described as the
Therapeutae and the
Essenes as two branches of a single
school of philosophy. They honored not only their alleged own master,
Moshe Rabbenu, they also
followed the great Pagan philosopher,
Pythagoras whose disciples
had set up Serapheum throughout the Pagan world.
Philo used philosophical
allegory to attempt to fuse and harmonize
Greek philosophy with Hebrew philosophy. His method followed the practices
of both Hebrew exegesis and
Stoic philosophy. Philo's
family had social ties and connections to the priesthood in Judea, the
the Herodian Dynasty and the Julio-Claudian dynasty in Rome.

Therapeutae occurs in
relation to followers of Aesculapius at
Pergamon. The term Therapeutae also occurs
in relation to worshippers of Serapis in inscriptions, such as on Delos. The
Aesculapius were a recognized and
designated association in antiquity that included the physicians, their
attendants and support staff, in the larger temples of
Aesculapius. These healing temples
(hospitals) were known as Asclepeions. Examples of famous
Aesculapius between 300 BC and 300 AD
include Hippocrates, Apollonius of Tyana, Aelius Aristides and Galen.
