Sophia Revealed

Sophia Revelaed to the Archons

When he had finished creating the physical universe, Yaldabaoth boasted to the angels beneath him, demanding that they worship him as the supreme being:

“[Yaldaboth] said… ‘I am a jealous God, and there is no other God besides me.’ But by making this announcement, he suggested to the angels with him that there is another God. For if there were no other God, of whom would he be jealous?” ((“The Secret Book of John.” The Secret Teachings of Jesus. Trans. Marvin W. Meyer. Vintage, 1984. 67-68.))

Angered by Yaldabaoth’s ignorant boasting, and saddened by the blemish his creation had become, Sophia warned him of an immortal, androgynous human who would one day descend to destroy him:

“…when [Sophia]saw the impiety of the chief Ruler, she was angry. Without being seen, she said, ‘You err, Samael,’ i.e., ‘the blind god.’ ‘An enlightened, immortal man exists before you. He will appear within your molded bodies. He will trample upon you as potter’s clay is trampled. And you will go with those who are yours down to… the abyss…’

After [Sophia] said these things, she revealed the likeness of her greatness in the waters…” ((“On the Origin of the World.” The Other Bible. Ed. Willis Barnstone. Harper San Francisco, 1984. 65.))

As Sophia revealed her reflection, the archons were filled with the desire for something they could grasp only by proxy – spiritual knowledge:

“As Sophia looked down into the region of the Waters, her Image appeared in the Waters; and the Authorities of the Darkness became enamored of her. But they could not lay hold of that Image which had appeared to them in the Waters, because of their weakness – since beings that merely possess a soul cannot lay hold of those that possess a spirit; for they were from below, while it was from Above. And thus she withdrew up to her light.” ((“Hypostasis of the Archons.” The Other Bible. Ed. Willis Barnstone. Harper San Francisco, 1984. 77.))

Delusions of the Ego

Our ego – in this context, the neurotic mind that grasps onto a solid sense of self-identity for support – is extremely powerful and will fight against any view that threatens its security. It is deeply disturbed by the suggestion that the I, like everything else, is something merely designated by conceptual thought. Therefore we…

Do we live in a 2-D hologram?

Much like characters on a television show would not know that their seemingly 3-D world exists only on a 2-D screen, we could be clueless that our 3-D space is just an illusion. The information about everything in our universe could actually be encoded in tiny packets in two dimensions. ((Fermilab. Press Release, August 26,…

Do We Live in the Matrix?

Unfortunately, our almighty simulators may… have programmed us into a universe-size reality show — and are capable of manipulating the rules of the game, purely for their entertainment. In that case, maybe our best strategy is to lead lives that amuse our audience, in the hope that our simulator-gods will resurrect us in the afterlife…
