Archons of Eden

Infect an entire planet with amazing live hairless monkeys!

As the gnostic scriptures reveal, the Garden of Eden was not a paradise, but a prison laboratory where fallen angels called “Archons” conducted a series of bizarre experiments in an attempt to produce a compliant strain of primate slaves. Banished from the stars at the dawn of time, these “archons” (Greek for “rulers”) fled to the Earth where they abducted a caveman named “Adam” and sexually assaulted his mate “Eve,” implanting both with false (or screen) memories:

When they [the archons] saw Eve speaking with [Adam], they said to one another; “Come, let us seize her and let us cast our seed on her, so that; those whom she will beget will serve us. But let us not tell Adam that she is not derived from us, but let us bring a stupor upon him, and teach him in his sleep as though she came into being from his rib.” ((”On the Origin of the World.” The Other Bible. Ed. Willis Barnstone. Harper San Francisco, 1984. 70.))

Feared and worshipped as “gods” and “angels,” the Archons depend for their very existence on the energy captured and siphoned from the human nervous system via various control systems – biological and memetic thermostats which allow them to regulate the flow of information and energy through words and images, pleasure and pain:

They say that the soul is the food of the Archons and Powers without which they cannot live, because she is of the dew from above and gives them strength… ((Jonas, Hans. The Gnostic Religion. Beacon Press, 1991. 169.))

Adam and Eve “fell” when the archons programmed them with prohibitions and commandments, changing them from primates living in the eternal “now” to “soft machines” – biological automata at war with their own instincts, parasitised by selfish replicators and paralyzed by double-binds:

….when the Rulers saw [Adam] and the woman who was with him, erring in ignorance… they rejoiced greatly… They came to Adam… [and] said to him, “Every tree which is in Paradise, whose fruit may be eaten, was created for you. But beware! Don’t eat from the Tree of Knowledge…” [T]hey gave them a great fright…. ((”On the Origin of the World.” The Other Bible. Ed. Willis Barnstone. Harper San Francisco, 1984. 71.))

Then one day, like the shoot of a vine or a flower pushing forth from the soil in the spring, the serpent arose from inside Adam and Eve, opening up a direct superhighway of bioelectric energy along the “tree”  (or “spine,” in Hebrew) and rushing from their loins to the crowns of their skulls.

“Some of them say that the serpent was Sophia [the Goddess of Wisdom] herself; for this reason it was opposed to the maker of Adam and gave knowledge to men, and therefore is called the wisest of all [Gen. 3:1]. And the position of our intestines through which food is taken in, and their shape, shows that the hidden Mother of the shape of the serpent is a substance within us.” ((“The Sethian-Ophites.” The Other Bible. Ed. Willis Barnstone. Harper San Francisco, 1984. 664.))

Their whole bodies vibrated like organic antennae as the walls of the garden fell away, revealing the larger world outside and above their cage. Like lab rats suddenly lifted out of a maze, Adam and Eve suddenly perceived their own situation clearly for the very first time:

“Then their mind opened. For when they ate… they saw that they were naked, and they became enamored of one another. When they saw their makers, they loathed them since they were beastly forms. They understood very much…” ((”On the Origin of the World.” The Other Bible. Ed. Willis Barnstone. Harper San Francisco, 1984. 71.))

Terrified, the archons cast Adam and Eve into the ordinary world of work, sleep and death to live out their lives in amnesia and drudgery. But all is not lost.

Within every person, these energies exist lying dormant – the tree, the serpent and Eve (i.e., genetic memory) too. The Garden of Eden and the archons will always be with us, existing in an eternal realm just outside normal awareness, a hidden dimension accessible via dreams and ritual, trance and vision. When we are ready, this world and the spirits in it reveal themselves, so that we too may join the serpent in asking:

“But of what sort is this God? First He maliciously refused Adam from eating of the tree of knowledge. And secondly he said, “Adam, where are you?” God does not have foreknowledge; otherwise, would he not know from the beginning?” ((”The Testimony of Truth.” The Nag Hammadi Library. Ed. James Robinson. HarperCollins, 1978. 455.))

    did the world of mind exist before the world of men? A good question. Was Tir Nan Og existent as a safe happy realm of the Gods whose mother was Kaos, until a mutation of that form extracted by bumbling fools created the present existence of men on earth.

    I however, do not speak for a transcendence of the earth plane, but banishing Satan altogether and further perfecting the earth world. Therefore, Satan has no chance against “gawdd”, the final battle has already been won/One.

    It seems to me that you make some rather big jumps in your conclusions.

    How do you know from the text, that the tree represents the spine, and the serpent represents the kundalini?

    And, did the tree of knowledge really make them aware of this plight, when answering to the demiurge or god, Eve blamed the serpent, and Adam blamed Eve – if their eyes had really been opened, would they not have blamed their creator?

    Finally someone that believes as I do, or close to it, at least I hope. Don’t want to be the only. The Archons are Satans sons. Satan has never been on earth, so far. But there is a black hole in our galaxy. Black hole=bottomless pit.
    Sincerely AGP

  4. Studious and erudite. Your study intrigues me.... on November 6, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    stuart may, the presumption you make about ‘blame game’ comes from the rewritten version of Genesis by the wily archon who was worshipped by the Jews. The Eve (light of Sophia) indeed was hidden herself in the tree of life and lives there today within the tree (cerebral cortex of our brains) untouched and unstained by the archons. This is the only place that the archons do not damage the soul. There is an escape route there for all souls……………..Dare to venture into that topic? It is not kundalini, for kundalini was a sexual polarity mechanism that was used to separate male from female and begins at the bottom of the sacral center……….Dare to venture more? Kundalini is a major stumbling block for man. If it is opened, it drags a soul down through sexual impulses and addictions……..It is a creator. But if the fruit of the tree is eaten, it draws the soul upward towards the crown- the place which is the seat of conscience sentience. In this place, there is liberation from earth, and from all other material heavens. In ths place, Sophia’s assumption is attained by her children. And she awaits them eagerly.

    Dear Studious and erudite, how ones eat the fruit of the tree?

The Tree of Knowledge as the Spine

“Wisdom (knowledge) is a tree of life to them that lay hold of her,” the mystery teachers said, and by “tree” they meant the human cerebrospinal system. When it is stimulated by a new and more potent form of Life Energy, called prana, the nervous system becomes the Tree of Life. Then an extraordinary change…
