As sung in our secret underground crime-fighting lab
On account of the reality of the Rulers, inspired by the Spirit of the Father of Truth, the great apostle (referring to the “Rulers of the Darkness”) told us that “our contest is not against flesh and blood, rather, the Rulers of the universe and the spirits of wickedness.” [Eph. 6:12]
I have sent you this because you inquire about the reality of the Rulers. Their chief is blind; because of his Power and his ignorance and his arrogance he said, with his Power, “It is I who am God; there is none apart from me.”
When he said this, he sinned against the [Entirety]. And this speech got up to Incorruptibility; then there was a voice that came forth from Incorruptibility saying, “You are mistaken, Samael” (that is, ” god of the blind.”)
His thoughts became blind. And, having expelled his Power (that is, the blasphemy he had spoken) he pursued it down to Chaos and the Abyss (his mother) at the instigation of Pistis Sophia.
And she established each of his offspring in conformity with its power – after the pattern of the realms that are above, for by starting from the invisible world the visible world was invented.1
