Is there an ET connection to the mystery of Jesus? Was the famed carpenter from Galilee actually the Son of God, or a mere itinerant Rabbi preaching Temple reform, or a cunning anti-Roman revolutionary–or was he in fact a ‘Gnostic’, whose wisdom and teachings were so radical that a vast authoritarian religious structure was erected to contain and suppress it?
“In 1209 an army of thirty thousand knights and foot soldiers from northern Europe descended like a whirlwind on the Languedoc [Pronounced, Lang-doc’]—the mountainous northeastern foothills of the Pyrenees in what is now southern France. In the ensuing war the whole territory was ravaged, crops were destroyed, towns and cities were razed; a whole population was put to the sword. The extermination occurred on so vast so terrible a scale that it may well constitute the first case of “genocide” in modern European history.”
“The Inquisition arose out of an effort by Pope Innocent III to stamp out a large heretical sect in the south of France known as the “Albigensians.” Innocent III had called for a special Crusade in 1209 to enter France and wipe out the sect. The five-year war, which ensued, devastated the region. Ten years later, a new Pope, Gregory IX, continued the action. He placed the Dominicans in charge of investigating the Albigensians. Gregory gave the Dominican Order full legal power to name and condemn all surviving heretics.”
“The inquisition helped breed a social reaction of violence to non-conforming ideas that the world has not yet fully escaped.”
“Albigensian” and “Cathar” were essentially generic names. In other words they did not refer to a single coherent church, like that of Rome, with a fixed codified, and definitive body of doctrine and theology…in general the Cathars subscribed to a doctrine of reincarnation and to a recognition of the feminine principle in religion. Indeed, the preachers and teachers of Cathar congregations were of both sexes. At the same time the Cathars rejected the orthodox Catholic Church and denied the validity of all clerical hierarchies, all official and ordained intercessors between man and God. At the core of this position lay an important Cathar tenet—the repudiation of ‘faith’ at least as the Church insisted on it…the Cathars insisted on direct and personal knowledge, a religious or mystical experience apprehended at first hand. This experience has been called ‘gnosis’ , from the Greek word for “knowledge” and for the Cathars it took precedence over all creeds and dogmas. Given such an emphasis on direct personal contact with God, priests, bishops, and other clerical authorities became superfluous.”
“For the Cathars men were the swords that spirits fought with, and no one saw the hands. For the Cathars a perpetual war was being waged throughout the whole of creation between two irreconcilable principles—light and darkness, spirit and matter, good and evil. Catholicism posits one supreme God, whose adversary, the Devil, is ultimately inferior to Him. The Cathars, however, proclaimed the existence of not one god, but two with more or less comparable status. One of these gods—the ‘good’ one was entirely disincarnate, a being or principle of pure spirit, unsullied by the taint of matter. He was the god of love.”
“The majority of Cathars seem to have regarded [Jesus] as a prophet no different from any other—a mortal being who, on behalf of the principle of love, died on the cross. And the cross—at least in association with Calvary and the Crucifixion—was regarded as an emblem of Rex Mundi, [Archon] lord of the material world, the very antithesis of the true redemptive principle. Jesus, if mortal at all, had been a prophet of AMOR, the principle of love. And AMOR, when inverted or perverted or twisted into power, became ROMA—ROME, whose opulent, luxurious Church seemed to the Cathars a palpable embodiment and manifestation on earth of Rex Mundi’s sovereignty.”

Dan Brown’s blockbuster novel combined with the subsequent hit movie “Da Vinci Code” both dramatically resurrected public fascination with the Holy Grail mysteries and the secrets of Mary Magdalene as well as ancient Goddess theologies.
What exactly was the ‘Grail’? Was it, perhaps as tradition would have it, the chalice from which Jesus served the wine at the ‘Last Supper’, and which also caught his blood at the Crucifixion?
Or, was the Grail Chalice a metaphor hiding the shocking secret that Jesus was by no means celibate and, in fact his ‘Holy Blood’ was secretly preserved through future generations beginning with the child he may have sired with his wife–Mary Magdalene?
Or, in an even broader context, could the Grail mysteries be metaphors for the ‘Divine Sophia’--ancient lost ‘Goddess’ theologies that revered the ‘feminine’ aspect of Deity?
The book entitled, “Not In His Image”, by John Lash (Chelsea Green Publishing Co. 2006) offers a brilliant, ‘in-depth’ study of the lost “Goddess” ideologies–Gnostic texts and cosmologies examining their relationship to contemporary Western Civilization and global ecology. Within this body of formidable research Lash reveals an alternative account of Old Testament history that suggests the Holy Bible may in fact be a chronicle of ancient extraterrestrial intrusion and intervention in human development. Was the human race actually subdued by extraterrestrial invaders, falsely masquerading as deity, during the days of Abraham in the book of Genesis…?
What could lost pagan, ‘Goddess’ religions and theologies of remote antiquity possibly have to do with the modern mystery of UFOs? Perhaps more than we might ever dare to imagine…!
In the year 1947 the possible reality of extraterrestrial intrusion into our world burst upon public awareness with two dramatic events. First was the Kenneth Arnold sighting near Mt. Rainier, when his eyewitness account of strange flying craft coined the phrase ‘flying saucers’ in the national press; and second was the famed saucer ‘crash’ reported by U.S. Army personnel at Roswell, New Mexico. Since that point in time, the enigma of ‘flying saucers’, or Unidentified Flying Objects, has become intrinsically interwoven into our modern culture. Yet, that very same year, halfway around the world in Cairo, Egypt, ancient documents revealing a “full and coherent account of alien intrusion” that could be traced back to early Bible times, was being translated by scholars of Gnostic theology.
Two years earlier, in 1945, an earthenware jar was dug up in a cave west of the Nile near the village of Nag Hammadi. Contained in this jar were papyrus scrolls or codices wrapped in leather of Biblical texts dating back to around 400 AD. They appeared to be the only surviving fragments of a much larger body of work; the equivalent perhaps of finding a mere handful of pages left from a lost ‘Encyclopedia Britannica’. Yet it appears these texts were secretly hidden in a last ditch effort to keep them safe and preserved from a deliberate and systematic campaign to destroy the vital information they contained.
Translation of the ‘Nag Hammadi’ Scrolls reveals a body of early Christian teachings that are considered ‘Gnostic’ in character. In other words, these texts contained ‘Gospels’ that had escaped censorship or revision by the Church of Rome, and that repudiated the authority of orthodox Christian doctrine—posing a theological threat, which clearly provided a motive to keep them hidden.
Gnostic (from the Greek gnosis, meaning ‘knowledge’) thought insisted upon direct and personal, first-hand religious or mystical experience with Deity, and vehemently rejected dogmas, creeds and clerics or any superfluous intercessors between man and God—an unwelcome posture for Vatican authority.
Yet contained within these lost texts is an exotic description of the origins of Earth and the human species that serious religious and Gnostic scholars dismiss as mythological ‘science –fiction’—a fantastic and disturbing description of cosmology that reveals an intrusion upon Earth humanity by malevolent, parasitic extraterrestrial invaders, who use Earth humans as puppets in a vast, unseen game of deception and domination.
“As above, so below.” The Gnostic perception of the universe would tell us that just as a biologist sees minute living creatures swarming in a drop of water through a microscope, the swirling galaxies seen through an astronomer’s telescope are also living beings! The entire universe is a vast living consciousness with individualized nodes of living consciousness existing within it.
In the most simplistic terms, the Gnostic cosmology describes the central sun of our particular galaxy as a living entity—intelligent light plasma. The ‘arms’ that extend and swirl out from that central sun are like ‘children’ of that core awareness. These plasma extensions reach out to the periphery of the galaxy where solid matter is formed, and this is where the ‘play’ of material creation is acted out. These conscious extensions stretch out and form solid worlds and living beings in infinite variety to express their own individual ‘dream’ of creativity.
Planet Earth first originated as a ‘metamorphosis’ of an intelligent stream of light plasma extending from the central sun. That stream of light was “SOPHIA“—a feminine emanation. Impulsive Sophia was so enraptured by her dream of creation that she plunged into the realm of physical matter alone, without her balancing male consort. In doing so, an accidental aberration occurred. Within Sophia’s dream of creation was an ideal ‘intention’ for living, intelligent creatures that would become humans. For that intention to properly manifest, it needed to blend with organic matter. However, in her brash impulsive plunge, the sheer force of plasma outpouring impacted with inorganic matter, creating an aberrant species that could never properly manifest Sophia’s vision for the human species!
The original intention of Sophia’s dream did successfully blend with organic matter and proper humans came into being, yet they were now challenged to confrontation by their aberrant cousins who use subterfuge to divert humans from their true potential on planet Earth. And Sophia, not only formed Earth from her dream—she actually became Earth! Gnostic texts tell us that goddess Sophia literally morphed into the living planet herself. Earth is Sophia. In other words, Earth is the living mother of all humanity.
The subsequent unfolding of human history is the conflict drama between Sophia’s intention for human expression and its accidental, mirror competitors. Only when humans ultimately discover this vital truth and overcome their adversary will they achieve Sophia’s divine dream for their destiny.
And how do the Gnostic texts describe this ‘adversary’? Referred to as “Archons”, (pronounced; Ar-kon, Greek, meaning magistrate, or–the Authorities.) they come in two distinct types—an aggressive reptilian humanoid and smaller, passive creatures resembling a ‘prematurely formed fetus’! “Bizarre as it may seem, a solution to the most baffling enigma of our time was fully elucidated in sacred writings almost two thousand years ago. In the matter of the ET/UFO enigma, the Gnostics were ahead of everyone today. Way ahead.”
“At first the Archons have no habitat. They swarm around like an insect colony blown savagely across interstellar space…This anomalous species comes into existence prior to the time when the earth emerges by direct transformation of Sophia’s own divine substance. Archons are Sophia’s offspring in a sense, but in an entirely different way than humanity and other organic species are. They do not emerge from her divine substance, Organic Light, but from [relatively inert, not inherently alive matter]. They are a freak species of inorganic composition, but they are alive and conscious in their own way.”
From among the Archons a reptilian leader ultimately emerges, who “is androgynous [and] rapidly assumes a markedly male, macho posture. He now takes charge of the extraordinary situation produced by Sophia’s plunge…Arrogant by nature [this] Demiurge deems himself to be at the center of creation, lord of all he beholds. Gnostic texts state plainly that [Demiurge]is insane, a demented god, or imposter deity. The Demiurge is indeed a sort of god, a cosmic entity in his own right…but he is a self-deified inorganic phantom deluded about his own identity. This is not meant as a figure of speech… the Gnostic materials clearly show…the Archons as real, physically existent inhabitants of our planetary system, who wrongly attempt to penetrate our biosphere. God exists, but he is insane. And he works against humanity…”
“Gnostics warned that we coexist in a planetary system with a demented entity who can access our world through our minds.”
And, Gnostics tell us, that through the human mind, the Archons were able to impose their most cunning deception–religion. By manipulation of religious ideology, the Archons are able to covertly substitute their mind-set into human culture.
“Gnostics detected the humanized face of the Archons in all authoritarian structures and systems that deny authenticity and self-determination to the individual.”
Surely it is becoming more obvious that something undefined–just beyond our perceptual grasp–is working ‘against’ humanity and even the planet itself. Primitive, petty, Bronze-age disputes in remote antiquity fought with swords and spears over religious rivalries and territorial claims seem quaint and provincial, from our New Millennium point of view. But for these same conflicts to rage on mindlessly for four-thousand years, now fought with today’s high-tech, mass-destruction weapons, suggests a profound pathological disorder in the human psyche that must be identified and treated before this malignancy engulfs our species altogether.
Gnostics would argue that, over the centuries, the proliferation of rival religions, political structures as well as modern corporate structures are each nothing more than microcosms of the Archon’s original social control construct for human domination. These structures mimic the Archon mind.
According to Gnostic theory, the Archon’s major initiating intrusion into the human realm is documented in the Old Testament book of Genesis, with the appearance of Jehovah to the patriarch, Abraham.
“In the Gnostic perspective the Archons are not only mind parasites—delusional nodes in the human mind, considered quasi-autonomous psychic entities, if you will—they are cosmic imposters, parasites who pose as gods. But they lack the primary divine factor of…‘intentionality,’ ‘creative will.’ They cannot originate anything, they can only imitate, and they must effectuate their copycat activity with subterfuge and stealth, lest their true nature be detected.”
“Hence [posing as Jehovah, the Archons] offer Abraham something that already belongs to him as a member of the human race. The earth has already been given to humanity: it is the precious habitat [dreamed] by the Goddess Sophia…The Archons approach Abraham with a fake deal, promising him possession and domination of the terrestrial realm, but this is not compatible with Sophia’s…divine intention. The earth is not a territorial prize but a precious setting where the human species can realize its innate genius, its capacity for novelty, acting within the natural boundaries set by the Goddess.”
“The Demiurge of the Old Testament is an arrogant, demented pretender who claims that humans are “made in His image.” These four words are the corporate motto of patriarchy. Branded on the human soul, “Made in His Image” signifies the total enslavement of humanity to an alien, off-planet agenda.”
The seeds of this enslavement spread over the ensuing centuries like a virus through patriarchal Judeo/Christian ideologies and Islam, which essentially serve as the models for modern Western Civilization’s political structures—brutish, authoritarian hierarchies designed to dominate, rather than serve their respective populations. And rather than responsible stewardship of our planet’s well being and natural resources, in keeping with humanity’s opportunity to co-evolve with Sophia, modern political and corporate hierarchies see the planet as a lifeless rock to be plundered, tortured and exploited for greed and profit.
MONOTHEISM: THE GREAT UNMENTIONABLE EVIL
“The great unmentionable evil at the center of our culture is MONOTHEISM. From a barbaric bronze age text known as the Old Testament, three anti-human religions have evolved–Judaism, Christianity, Islam. These are “Sky-God” religions. They are, literally, Patriarchal–God is the Omnipotent Father–Hence the loathing of women for 2000 years in those countries afflicted by the ‘Sky-God’ and his Earthly male delegates. The Sky-God is a jealous god, of course. He requires total obedience from everyone on Earth, as he is in place not for just one tribe, but for all of creation. Those who would reject him must be converted or killed for their own good. Ultimately TOTALITARIANISM is the only sort of politics that can truly serve the Sky-God’s purpose.” Gore Vidal
Knowledge of a sentient, living earth has been maintained and revered by indigenous peoples around the planet: from Australia’s Aboriginals, to the native peoples of both North and South America, as well as the tribes of Africa. Yet over the centuries, the expansion and conquest of Christian European nations have systematically exterminated and marginalized these cultures, deliberately and effectively silencing their awareness of the Goddess reality, and the unseen menace of the Archon dominion.
“… And, considering what the world is now, with all the misery, conflict, destructive brutality, aggression, and so on. Man is still as he was. Is still brutal, violent, aggressive, acquisitive, competitive. And, he’s built a society along these lines.” Krishnamurti
And yet the Gnostics would argue the world we see today does not show the face of true human, but rather the insane, homicidal face of the manipulating Archon madness that distorts it. Perhaps humanity now confronts its ultimate challenge to actualize its divine and greatest potential--the power of its intentionality.
“This power was expressly given to humankind to allow us to detect and resist Archontic subversion. In a sense, the Archons are present in the cosmos to test us so that we are certain to make optimal use of our divine endowment. The supreme attainment of our humanity requires facing our inhumanity (our Archontic side) and dis-empowering it, but not disowning it.”
In the Gnostic texts even Sophia herself warns the evil Archon Demiurge, he will ultimately be defeated by the humanity she created. It is our destiny…!
