I have to declare before the solemn verdict of public opinion that the fundamental aim of every Gnostic student is to become a K-H: a Kosmos Human.
All of us human beings live in a Kosmos. We must never forget that the word kosmos means “order.”
The Kosmos Human is a being who has perfect order in his five centers, in his mind, and in his Essence.
In order to become a Kosmos Human, it is necessary to learn how the Three Primary Forces of the universe—positive, negative and neutral—manifest themselves.
On the path that leads to the Kosmos Human (a path totally positive), we see that every positive force is always opposed by a negative force.
Through self-observation we must perceive the mechanism of the opposing force.
Whenever we propose to carry out a special action, whether it be annihilating an ego, controlling sexual energy, doing a special work, or executing a definite program, we must observe and calculate the force of resistance, because by nature the world and its mechanicity tends to provoke resistance and such resistance is doubled.
The more gigantic the enterprise, the greater the resistance will be. If we learn to calculate the resistance, we will also be able to develop the enterprise with success. This is where the capacity of the genius, of the enlightened one, is.
