Revolutionary Gnosticism would never accept an anthropomorphic God in the style of the Biblical Jehovah, seated up above on a throne of tyranny and hurling lightning and thunderbolts against this anthill-like human swarm. Nevertheless, it is well-known that the International Gnostic Movement has never been atheistic.
Sincerely, we confess that force and forces are something very united in creation. “Gods, God exists!” exclaimed Victor Hugo…
It is obvious that variety is unity. Polytheism synthesizes itself in the unity. The total addition of all of those heavenly beings, namely: Elohim, Gods, Dhyan Chohans, Dhyani-Buddhas, Angels, Devas, Archangels, etc., constitute that which is commonly named God.
We have always believed that mortality and immortality are something extremely relative, and even when this seems to be incredible, the fact is that even God dies at the end of the Mahamanvantara.
This does not signify annihilation of that which is Divine. It is unquestionable that when the Great Cosmic Day finalizes, then the Army of the Voice, the Word, that which is called God, ceases to exist within the cosmos and goes inside the Absolute in order to be.
To be is better than to exist, and the reason for the Being to be, is to be the Being itself. Our legitimate existence is within the Absolute. This is a not-being, a “non-existence” to the human reasoning.
The Absolute is neither a God, nor a divine or human individual. It would be an absurdity to give form to that which has no form. It would be nonsense to try to anthropomorphize space.
Indeed, the Absolute is the unconditioned and eternal Abstract Space, very far beyond Gods and humans.
The heterogeneity unfolds itself from within the homogeneity when the dawn of the Mahamanvantara is dawning. Then, the Army of the Voice (God) is reborn again in order to create anew.
Biologists are presently searching for their homogeneous protoplasm, and chemists for their protyle, while the science of physics is laboriously searching to verify that this “force,” “magnetism,” “heat,” etc. are all correlations of electricity.
When reaching this part of the present chapter, it is necessary that we speak a little bit more clearly. Therefore, allow me to state what I in a direct way have experienced for myself.
It is unquestionable that I have passed through the mystical experience of many previous Pralayas, because I am an Archangel of former Mahamanvantaras.
The word to better define “That” where all things originate and dissolve is without a doubt the Sanskrit word Prabhavapyaya. So, let this word be understood as a place or plane where all things originate and dissolve.
Nevertheless, it is necessary to emphasize the transcendental idea that Prabhavapyaya is neither the “Mother of the World,” nor the womb of the Cosmos, nor the material cause of our planet Earth.
We, the Gnostics, found the root of the cosmos exclusively in Parabrahman and Mulaprakriti, the eternal Father-Mother, the divine Androgyne.
I cannot ever forget those moments of pleroma, those blessed moments in which the Father-Mothers taught unto their children the laws of Nature. I remember that they were instructing them with delectable songs in the language of the Light.
Therefore, it is unquestionable that the existing malleable essence in itself, the homogeneous basis of the universe, must be searched for within Parabrahman and Mulaprakriti, the One, That which is under two aspects…
While delving in this abstract subject matter that is very difficult for many to comprehend, I remember that during the profound night of Pralaya, the Father-Mothers or divine Androgynes did not easily forget the universe that existed. Therefore, when this remembrance is projected in the Abstract Absolute Space, within that which has no name, this forms paradises of inconceivable bliss.
It is indubitable that if we would pick a marvellous flower from any of those Edens of the Absolute and if afterwards we would bring it to the cosmos, it would instantaneously cease having any type of existence.
