Gnosticism and the Roman
"Roman influence divested
Christianity of some of its profound
primeval psychological knowledge. Christian fellowships developing under
different cultural conditions created forms so variegated that maintaining
unity turned out to be an historical impossibility." - Andrew M.

all the inhabitants of a country should have the same religion, but we now know
that there is no such necessity." - Bertrand Russell

grappled with the Mystery of Life for over a

Golden Age human beings knew the
secrets of the Mysteries of Life
and lived a blessed life in
communion with the Creator and Sustainer and Nature until there arose
a new human mutation.

peoples of the Mediterranean as "frogs around a small pond."
Along came Alexander III
of Macedonia who transformed the Mediterranean world into essentially one

mystical theme which is directly related to

Gnostics recognize that
REALITY IS ALIVE.
In Gnosticism the broad
term 'gnostic' is defined as 'knower' which refers to all individuals who have
noumenon and although they express
their insights in the various metaphors of their diverse cultures,
socio-economic groups and subgroups, they all talk about the experience of
Gnosis, of perceiving
Reality as Reality truly is.
It is possible to
experience an ultra awake state called
'lucid living'. When living lucidly you are conscious that what you thought
was consciousness was, comparatively,
a trance or hazy dream. This awakened state is sometimes called 'enlightenment' or 'gnosis'. What physically happens
is the human brain is supercharged by enlightenment creating
gamma brain waves.
A spark of an epiphany fires the
brain supercharging the brain with an experience of
the undeniable oneness of all that
lives. Magic is undertsood for
what it really is - a prayer
to the gods. Many times mythological narratives are lain
out and seen for their ultimate truth. The step that mankind is now mired
in that needs to be overcome due to it inherent limitations is
rational consciousness. And
finally one steps into the final phase of consciousness in which
one understands how all the

the foundational cores we find unimaginably older conceptual structures with
later ideological structures grafted or built upon them.

Apostolic Catholic Christianity evolved out of the
inter-racial emanational and
incarnational salvific monotheism that coarsed through the Mediterranean
trading federations with the coming of the
Gnostic Mystery of Jesus Christ.
This approach was, from the beginning,
contaminated by certain ponerological elements that
allowed it to be easily distorted. In particularly it was contaminated with
psychotic darkness of the Zaddikim.
Those familiar with ponerology
can understand those elements as the work of schizoidal psychopaths. Those
elements were present in the Hebrew literature - a schizoidal take on writing
a sacred narrative history to explain
religious conceptual structures after the
model of Herodotus - and this was blended with the purer,

Under the influence of the Hellenic Greek cultural
Hebrew mystics sought to find greater
depth in the Hebrew "history" than that which had already been produced. The
allegedly historical Israel was created to support
the agenda of a religious
priesthood-clique seeking power and as it was to gather support from the
masses it was necessary to fake the history of the tribes of Israel which was
produced from many tribal tales
and legends , genealogies created and added in order to portray a very
disparate group of tribes as "one". These are the books known as the Old
Testament in the Latin Vulgate.
The first five
books are considered Torah: Bereshit ("In [the]
beginning", Genesis), Shemot ("Names", Exodus), Vayikra ("He called",
Leviticus), Bamidbar ("In the desert", Numbers) and Devarim ("Words",
True Torah Hebrews reject
all other Old Testament books as Alexanderian Hebrew Gnostic additions.
Interestingly as the Torah, in particularly
Bereshit/Genesis, is based on even older Sumerian and Akkadian creation
The last synthesis
of inter-racial emanational and
incarnational salvific monotheism produced
the Alexandrian Hebrew Gnostic cult of
Serapis centered at Alexandria which eventualy evolved into Catholicism.
The tradition of Serapis was an
amalgamation and synthesis of all the traditions of the tribes surrounding the
Mediterranean which resulted in the inter-racial emanational and
incarnational salvific monotheism, which was the indigenous form of what
Hindus think of as Vaishnavism,
The tradition of monotheism goes
back to Akhenaten the Heretic, husband of Nefertiti and father of
Tutankhamen. There are many similarities between Serapis and Yahweh the first
being Serapis was a supreme god.
The Alexandrian Hebrew Gnostic cult of
Serapis declared their history to have an even
deeper level of mystical
allegory. They used a magic
form of exegesis claiming to be inheritors of secret mystical teachings passed
down from their own great Gnostic Master, Moses. They went so far as to
claim that the great Pagan
philosophers had originally received their wisdom from
Moses and that all
other intellectual advances were thanks to the Hebrews - God's Chosen Ones. Under the temple of

contrivances within a Labryrinth which
indicate severe "testing" of the initiates reminiscent of a modern hospital -
or a torture dungeon.
Many things are obscured and incomprehensible in a
world that came to be dominated by synthetically cobbled together religious
traditions. It is not likely that these early Hebrew Gnostics recognized the
slow-acting poison of the schizoidal remaking incorporated into their history
that they now proposed to study as allegory. Of course it was very much
allegory because it originated as the myths of other peoples!

Serapis are the same." - Roman Emperor Hadrian

The near collapse of the
Roman Empire between 235 and 284 was caused by three simultaneous crises:
external invasion, internal civil war, and economic collapse. The changes in
the institutions, social
culture and religion were so profound and fundamental, that the "Crisis of
the Third Century" is seen as the historical dividing line between the
classical world and the early medieval world.
Diocletian took control of the Roman Empire
in 284. Emperor Diocletian, after watching
numerous internal struggles for power which culminated in civil wars,
understood that most of shifts in the balance of power were facilitated by
allegiance to charismatic commanders which stemmed from the brotherhood
experienced by soldiers belonging both to the military and to the secret
fellowship of the Mysteries of

The Orthodox Christian hierarchy is nearly identical to
the Mithraic version.
Virtually all of the elements of Orthodox
Christian rituals, from miter, wafer, water baptism, alter, and doxology, were
adopted from the Mysteries of
Mithras and earlier pagan mystery religions.
Mysteries of Mithras
preceded Christianity by roughly six hundred years. They covered a large
portion of the ancient world and flourished until being superseded by
Constantine's Imperial version of Christianity.

- the Evil.
"Mithra seems to have owed his prominence to the belief that
he was the source of life, and could also
redeem the souls of the
dead into the better world ... The ceremonies included a sort of baptism to
remove sins, anointing, and a sacred meal of bread and a consecrated wine,
believed to possess wonderful power, played a prominent part. In the catacombs
at Rome was preserved a relic of Mithraic worship. An image of the infant
Mithra seated in the lap of his virgin mother, while on their knees before him
were Persian Magi offering
gifts. Mithra was buried in a tomb and after three days he rose again. His
resurrection was celebrated every year on what was later to become Easter. His
sacred day was Sunday, "the Lord's Day." - The International
recognized that social control had to be based
on something more than simply military force, so he sought imperial
legitimacy in a new state
religion, with himself as divine monarch much as
Akhenaten had done 1650 years
earlier in Eygpt. To the Romans, the observance of religious rites was a
public duty even though Roman state religious beliefs were founded on a
chaotic unconnected inconsistent pagan mythological
tradition adopted from Greek
models and cross-pollinated with influences from all the religions of the
regions the Roman Empire had conquered.
Secret societies and
mystery brotherhoods were a threat to
Emperor Diocletian's power so he aligned himself with the
Mithras outlawing all others. Emperor
Diocletian declared himself Lord and Master (Dominus Noster) and later
equated himself to the paternal father god of Rome, Rome's Great Father and
Savior (Juppiter Optimus Maximus Soter); the patron deity of the Imperial Roman
state. By outlawing the Eleusinian Mysteries, and
the Gnostic Christian Mysteries
and declaring himself a divine intercessor - a god brought to life on Earth -

social control through religious
unification . By dividing the Roman Empire into West and East and taking

Emperor Diocletian in 303 issued a series of
four increasingly harsh decrees designed to compel Christians to take part in
the imperial religion. Emperor Diocletian
ordered all Gnostic Christian churches to be destroyed, all Gnostic Christian
books to be burned and Gnostic Christians themselves were denied the protection
offered other citizens
by Roman law. Gnostic Christians were arrested,
mutilated, burned, starved, and
forced into gladiatorial
contests in purges until 311.
Constantine started a civil war in the
West, which he won in 312. When Constantine won the decisive battle he
needed a great and powerful father god, a god unrelated to the father god of
Constantine chose an Imperial Christian
god first modeled by the Zaddikim, a
god different from the God of the
Gnostics, as his benefactor.
"The Empire that emerged under
Diocletian and Constantine was
administered by a government that was larger, more complex, more highly
organized, and that commandered larger and more powerful military forces. It
taxed its citizens more heavily,
their labor, and regulated their lives and their occupations. It was a
coercive, omnipresent, all-powerful organization that subdued individual
interests and levied all resources toward one overarching goal:
THE SURVIVAL OF THE STATE." -

"Our purpose is to grant both to the
Christians and to all others full authority

has desired, whereby whatsoever
Divinity dwells in heaven may be benevolent and propitious to us, and to
all who are placed under our authority. Therefore we thought it salutary and
most proper to establish our purpose that no person whatever should be refused
complete toleration, who has given up his mind either to the cult of the
Christians or to the religion which he personally feels best suited to himself.
It is our pleasure to abolish all conditions whatever which were embodied in
former orders directed to your office about the Christians, that every one of
those who have a common wish to follow the religion of the Christians may from
this moment freely and unconditionally proceed to observe the same without any
annoyance or disquiet."- Edict of Milan, 313 AD (rescript issued under Licinius
at the behest of Constantine)
Christians in independent, "free" churches
have long regarded the Constantinian revolution as little short of the fall of
Christianity, a Babylonian captivity of Christianity to State power - almost as
calamitous as the fall of Adam and
One thing is clear: The unqualified
toleration for all decreed at Milan did not last long, nor has it often
prevailed in later centuries. The rescript's noble sentiments cemented into the
foundations of the highest Western cutural ideals first sketched by the
Christian philosopher Lactantius: that coercion and
true religious faith don't mix
because "God wishes to be adored by people who are free".
