The Phony Fall

Adam, where are you?

Adam and Eve awoke from the Rulers’ brainwashing and discovered that they had been experiments, built by Yaldabaoth in a misguided effort to imprison and enslave the light from above. The Rulers moved quickly to suppress this nascent rebellion, descending from the heavens with a thunderous clap:

“Then when the Rulers knew that they had transgressed their commandment, they came in an earthquake with a great threat into Paradise to Adam and Eve in order to see the result of the help…. Then, because the Rulers did not know where they were, they said, ‘Adam, where are you?'” ((”On the Origin of the World.” The Other Bible. Ed. Willis Barnstone. Harper San Francisco, 1984. 71.))

As Adam and Eve emerged from hiding, the Archons lashed out in a childish fury – only to discover that the serpent (being divine) was immune to their attacks:

“Then the rulers came to the instructor. Their eyes were blinded by him so that they were not able to do anything to him. They merely cursed him since they were impotent. Afterward they came to the woman, and they cursed her and her sons. After the woman they cursed Adam and the earth and the fruit because of him. And everything which they created they cursed…” ((”On the Origin of the World.” The Other Bible. Ed. Willis Barnstone. Harper San Francisco, 1984. 71.))

Trembling with rage and frustration, the Archons decided that it would be too risky to allow Adam to remain in the Garden any longer – if he were to eat from the Tree of Life, he would not only be wiser than the Archons, but stronger too:

“They gathered together and took counsel, and they said, ‘Behold, Adam has become like one of us, so that he understands the distinction of light and darkness. Now lest perhaps… he also comes to the Tree of Life and eats from it and becomes immortal and rules and condemns us and regards us and all our glory as folly – afterward he will pass judgment on us and the world – come, let us cast him out of Paradise down upon the earth, the place from whence he was taken, so that he will no longer be able to know anything more about us.’ And thus they cast Adam and his wife out of Paradise.” ((“On the Origin of the World.” The Other Bible. Ed. Willis Barnstone. Harper San Francisco, 1984. 71.))

    so…this might mean that the physical universes was made then out of desperation to blind us from what the first human was enabled with- both masculine and feminine thought -were able to see and remeber truth and knowledge -in the three forms of first thought reads that the mother god is our truth- movement -thought -but says nothing of emotion -but with every truth recognized comes the emotional response to the awareness of truth- and its knowledge- that logic interprets into a knolwing of the human experience =light

Revolution, Failed

Seen in this light, the “fall of man” depicts a failed revolution from the victor’s standpoint. For attempting to put into practice their slogan “Our bodies belong to us,” the rebels were sentenced to a life of forced labor in the sweat of their brows. “Your bodies belong to your Ruler!”- that was the response.…

Reverse Psychology of Original Sin

Take a child brought up to believe the lusts of the body are dirty and wrong; that an omniscient God spies on and judges its every little sneaky mean thought and action; that it is born in sin (original sin) and can only be saved by accepting the dictates of this God’s rules. The child,…
