God Above God : Before the Beginning

In Search of the Alien God

Before there was a God, a heaven or an earth, there was only the Alien God, the infinite and eternal mind who dreams all realities:

“There is a perfect preexistent Aeon, dwelling in the invisible and unnameable elevations… in quiet and in deep solitude for infinite aeons.” ((”The Valentinian System Of Ptolemaeus.” The Other Bible. Ed. Willis Barnstone. Harper San Francisco, 1984.))

Extending forever in every direction, the Alien God is the only being which can perceive itself in its totality – for the Alien God is consciousness itself:

“It looks to every side and sees itself from itself. Since it is infinite, it is ever incomprehensible. It is imperishable and has no likeness (to anything)… While it is not known, it ever knows itself.” ((“The Sophia of Jesus Christ.” The Nag Hammadi Library. Ed. James Robinson. HarperCollins, 1978. 224-225.))

Beyond Science

…if science is dealing with something real, though permanently beyond it, then this suggests that a more fundamental reality exists as a kind of ground of being for everything as we perceive it too. Moreover, that ground exists outside of space and time – which actually is not so startling a comment: the laws of…

A Giant Brain

According to a study published in Nature’s Scientific Reports, the universe may be growing in the same way as a giant brain – with the electrical firing between brain cells ‘mirrored’ by the shape of expanding galaxies. The results of a computer simulation suggest that “natural growth dynamics” – the way that systems evolve –…
