What is Gnosticism?
Welcome to the Virtual Alexandria, to that dream of the Gnostics and their nightmare that has become manifest in these modern times. Who are the Gnostics and why do they matter? This is where you find out, learn to write your own gospel and live your own myth. For more on this project, visit my post: https://thegodabovegod.com/what-is-gnosticism-video/ It’s based on a very approachable definition of Gnosticism, from a previous post: https://thegodabovegod.com/definition-gnosticism-even-saklas-will-get/ It includes four typical features of Gnosticism: 1. A distinction is made between the highest, unknown God and the imperfect or plainly evil creator-god, who is often identified with the God of the Bible. 2. This is often connected with an extensive description of the divine world (Pleroma), from which the essential core of human beings derives, and of disastrous “fall” of a divine being (Sophia, “Wisdom”), in this upper world. 3. As a result, humankind has become entrapped in the earthly condition of oblivion and death, from which it is saved by the revelation of Gnosis by one or more heavenly messengers. 4. Salvation is often actualized and celebrated in rituals that are performed within the gnostic community. What do you think? In my view, Gary accurately captured the essence of Gnostic spirituality. I can’t thank him enough. I certainly can and will thank all patrons and members who helped make this possible with support. Thank you! Other than that, let me know your thoughts on this content.

Acharya S Discusses Death and Dying
With the passing of a dear friend and great scholar, Acharya, I decided to bring back permanently an interview I conducted with her in 2011. The interview was solely her idea. It never received the attention or traffic as her other discussions on Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio. It might be her most poignant talk. In her own words, Acharya S. relates her views on death and dying. More than that, she talks about how to truly live. Please consider donating to her family. Her immediate family is in need of support to cover funeral costs and many more expenses. You can donate here by purchasing her e-books at http://www.stellarhousepublishing.com/acharyapdfs.html. Her family will get 100% of your donation and you will receive digital copies of her e-books.
Politics and Gnosticism: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
INTERVIEW STARTS AT 17:00. Become a patron of Aeon Byte: http://www.patreon.com/aeonbyte Gnostic philosophy has greatly influenced many alternative movements in their search for individual freedom, from secret societies to enlightenment thinkers to iconic artists of modernity. But can Gnosticism assist in modern politics? It can indeed, especially since the Gnostic speculations of what forces rule the systems of the cosmos have come true, reflected on material society and its existentialist morass of alienated humanity. We delve into these speculations and attempt to find solutions within the mystic ideas of ancient heresies. Astral Guest-- Christopher Knowles, author of Our Gods Wear Spandex: The Secret History of Comic Book and The Secret History of Rock 'n' Roll.
The Gnostic Faustus & Lucifer Rising: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
The tragic story of Faustus, immortalized by several literally giants like Christopher Marlowe and Goethe, has riveted mankind for centuries. Yet most do not know that underneath this satanic romance, there is a secret Gnostic message purposely hidden that echoes the Scripture of the ancient heretics and the mythology of Simon Magus and Helen of Troy. We take a journey with Mephistopheles through the charged, esoteric vision of the legend of Faustus. Astral Guest-- Ramona Fradon, author of ‘The Gnostic Faustus'.

Magical Techniques for Navigating the New Economic Reality
Magical and spiritual discourse has failed to keep up with the economic reality. A new book aims to fix that, drawing upon ancient Gnostic and Hermetic wisdom. It also shows how to use Chaos Magic not only to navigate these trying times, but to triumph as well. Discover how to become invincible through initiation, and wage the mind war that will keep you moving toward what you really want. From sigil magic to working with spiritual allies, you will learn to act on the unwavering belief that your life should matter and you’re not going to let something as trifling as the apocalypse get in the way of it.

The Pleroma or Zero Point Field: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
The ancient Gnostics claimed that there existed an ultimate and idealized reality called the Pleroma, the primordial consciousness that permeated and perhaps sustained all of existence. Beyond that, it also was the roadmap in the sensible world that could grant sentient forms its supernal information, teach one the ways of eternity...also called Gnosis or perhaps Total Recall. New science reveals that the Pleroma is not just the philosophical musings of bygone heretics but an active force that can be tapped into in order to access infinite power and knowledge. In essence, the Pleroma or Zero Point Field has the potential of granting the promise of The Gnostics: to become divine while still in the flesh. Astral Guests--Anthony Peake, author of The Man Who Remembered the Future: A Life of Philip K. Dick, The Daemon and Is There Life After Death?.
Are Gnostics World Haters?
The great question and the argument is complicated. The answers will hopefully disturb and then amaze you. From the Sethians to the Hermetics, from the Manichaeans to the Cathars, it's a rainbow of rebellion against a world that was, oddly enough, deeply loved by these heretics. My article on Gnostics and world-hating: https://thegodabovegod.com/are-gnostics-world-haters/ My article on whether Gnostics believed in Charity and Good works: https://thegodabovegod.com/do-gnostics-believe-in-charity-and-good-works/ Please support: https://www.patreon.com/aeonbyte
Near Death Experiences
We take a dual approach to understand the phenomenon of Near Death Experiences. On one hand, we study the sober science behind those who have returned from clinical death. On the other hand, one of our guests relates a personal journey from the hardnosed CEO of a multimillion dollar company to a born-again mystic—all after a near death experience that revealed the secrets of the cosmos. In between, we find ancient Gnostic philosophy that can lead us back to our Daemon or Higher Self. This part of our Schrodinger’s Diary series, where we study alternative science and the mysteries of consciousness.

A Gnostic View of Suffering: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
INTERVIEW STARTS AT 20:00. BEFORE I DISCUSS THE NOTION OF SUFFERING IN VARIOUS RELIGIONS. All faiths possess their reasoning for the reality of suffering. The Gnostics claim their own unique slant, oddly paralleling other religions yet at the same time just as oddly original. Through the eyes of a brand new Gnostic Gospel, in the form of a powerful fiction novel, we explore how the Gnostics saw the origins of iniquity and other theological conundrums that to this day bring great confusion and debate among all the world's ideologies. There must be some way out of here, said the Joker to the Thief… Astral Guest-- Tim Roux, author of Fishing for Christians.
Human Sacrifice in the Bible: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
Martyrdom, Holy War and Complete Obedience to the violent laws of the God of the OT have been part of the Matrix of all the Abrahamic Religions since their conception. The root is more than likely Abraham's loyalty in sacrificing his son in the name of God without question or second thought. This story has psychologically given the Abrahamic religions excuses to commit atrocities in the name of the righteous patriarch because of a subconscious duty to symbolically follow God into a barbaric ritual that was actually wide spread in the ancient world—including Judaism. We try to understand the seeds of this attitude that has gone so far the three Abrahamic religions are on a collision course to sacrifice their young without the worry of an intervening angel. Astral Guest-- Bruce Chilton, author of 'Abraham's Curse', 'Rabbi Paul' and 'Mary Magdalene'.
The Spiritual Meaning of the Sixties
We uncover the spiritual meaning that fueled the artistic, political, and social revolutions of the 1960s. This includes investigating the Gnostic, Hermetic, and Occult influences of that decade. From John Lennon’s understanding of Gnosticism to Pink Floyd’s marketing of Gnosis, we leave no acid-soaked unturned. Ultimately, we find out what went wrong with the Sixties, at the same time distilling insights that might rejuvenate our colorless times.

Who is the Demiurge & What's His Damn Problem, Stan Lee?
Who exactly is the ultimate villain of the Gnostics? What are his mythological and theological origins? This is the topic in our latest Abraxas Brief, as well as how the fierce Demiurge materializes in modern culture and your own spiritual life. This show is dedicated to Stan Lee.

Liberating Prometheus and Atlas
Within the empowering archetypes of Prometheus and Atlas reside the Gnosis to vanquish the nihilistic materialism and rootless rationalism of the modern West (as well as Abrahamic religious fundamentalism). This realization harnesses the soundness of alternative science and perennial philosophies — all by tapping into the Gnostic, Hermetic, Neoplatonic and other Hellenistic wisdom that promotes higher human consciousness. The results are a fiery fusion of the horizons of the Eastern and Western worlds, pointing to an integral society wherein the modern barriers between Science, Religion, Politics, and Art have been dynamited.

The Ancient War Between Gnostics and Neoplatonists
The Gnostics were seen as a widely dangerous faith to the Abrahamic and Asian faiths. Yet their subversive ideas also brought the ire of Pagan dispensations, including Neoplatonism. Their conflict was rather symbiotic, and ultimately shaped not only modern Esoterica but modern orthodox religions. We explore what exactly made Plotinus and other philosophers so irate at the Sethian cosmic anarchy; as well as some of the latest scholarship on the usefulness of the term Gnosticism, the pre-Christian origins of the Gnostics, and the very notion of Gnosis itself. Ultimately, we go into the heart of the Alien God and his entrance into a dying world. Astral Guest—Dylan Burns, author of Apocalypse of the Alien God
Heretics Anonymous 3: Joe Atwill on the Hammer of the Oligarchs
In episode three of Heretics Anonymous, Joe Atwill joins us to explain how the elite have debased and manipulated society across a history they keep rewriting. From the Roman invention of orthodox religion to the banker invention of authoritarian governments, from the Mason engineering of world wars to the Nazi engineering of modern propaganda, we leave no blood-stained stone unturned. In the end, the goals of the oligarchs are ultimately about the extermination of human free thought and free will. Occult Fan joins us as well to create a Trinity of veil-lifting.

The Gnosis of Philip K Dick and CG Jung
Two chief Gnostic revealers of modern times are Philip K. Dick and CG Jung. We parallel and contrast their lives, visions, cosmologies, and prophecies. Above these two giants of mystic heresy, we encounter and experience the sanity-destroying figure of Abraxas. By delving into Dick’s The Exegesis and Jung’s The Red Book, the labyrinth that is existence opens up to the discovery of the soul and the truth of sensible reality.

Gnostic Secrets of the Naassenes: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
Become a patron of Aeon Byte: http://www.patreon.com/aeonbyte Perhaps the most enigmatic of Gnostic sects were the Serpent Worshipers, the Ophites and Naassenes-- who saw the Snake in the Garden of Eden as an incarnation of Sophia or Jesus Christ. Of these heretics there is little remaining in a censoring history won by the victors, except for a Naassene Psalm that reveals a penetrating view of early alternative Christianity and primordial Gnosis. We delve into the mysticism of the dangerous Serpent Worshipers, understanding how their forbidden message is as relevant today as it was in an era of rising Orthodoxy and crumbling empires. Astral Guest-- Mark Gaffney, author of Gnostic Secrets of the Naassenes: The Initiatory Teachings of the Last Supper.
The Great Occultists of History: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
Occultism has greatly defined and influenced modern western culture in all aspects. We explore the major architects of the towering palace known as the Occult: Aleister Crowley, HP Blavatsky, Manly P. Hall, Colin Wilson, Carl Jung, and many others. Within the groundbreaking and provocative ideas of these mystic magicians, we will discover many parallels including their pioneering of higher states of consciousness, belief in a new age of enlightenment, and tireless quest for the liberation of humanity from oppressive earthly and unearthly forces. And as well also understand their shortcomings and dooms, even as many of them changed the very course of history. Astral Guest-- Gary Lachman, author of Revolutionaries of the Soul
Jung, Addiction and Archetypal Evil
Many are unaware that CG Jung’s ideas were instrumental in the creation of Alcoholic Anonymous. Even less know that Jung and Bill Wilson, the co-founder of AA, corresponded late in their lives. Their exchange provided unique insights into addiction, recovery, and the nature of evil. What we gained is the Gnostic solution to the problem of theodicy, as well as the means for an alchemical redemption every person can attain. Astral Guest — David Schoen, author of The War of the Gods in Addiction: C.G. Jung, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Archetypal Evil. As a bonus for members, Scott Smith, author of God Reconsidered, joins us for a Trimorphic Paranoia, sharing his own experiences with alcoholism, Jungian solutions, and cosmic iniquity.

Exposing Modern Archeology & the True Origins of Civilization
Despite scientific advancements in the last generation, the field of archeology remains under the nagging shadow of a imperialistic and racist past. However, alternative but sober research shines light on the remarkable origins of civilization. These beginnings reveal the mystic, mythical and even supernatural essence of humanity. We journey across ancient times with the lenses of Gnosis to find the astounding truths behind the Hermeticists, Sumerians, various Flood Myths, Yezidi, Ancient Astronauts and other anthropological aspects that formed human culture.

The Holy Grail and Mystic Portals Part 2
In our first part, the relative of Charlie Chaplin and a famous artist on her own right shared her mystic adventures in the Spanish city of Girona. This is a place where Kabbalists and other esoteric groups have guarded an arcane secret for thousands of years. Dan Brown and the other Grail hunters got it all wrong — the Holy Grail was never a cup or a woman, but a world chakra, a portal into the other dimensions that can make a human divine. Rennes-le-Chateau in Southern France was but a magical antenna to increase its frequency — constructed by the priest Saunieri— the other one being Girona. This portal is located at the top of a haunted mountain in between Girona and Rennes-le-chateau. It has been sought after all throughout history, from the ancient Phoenicians to the Nazis, from Pagan Romans to the Roman Catholic Church. Brave individuals have actually traveled through it, finding things that should never be spoken. Our guest not only recaps her discoveries but relates her tale of undergoing a primordial ritual passed through generations, reaching this world chakra and accessing its cosmic gifts.

The Egyptian Origins of Gnosticism
Most assume the Jewish, Zoroastrian, and Greek origins of Gnosticism. However, by overlooking that the Gnostics were the direct carriers of older mysteries from Egypt, we miss the essence of their teachings. In many ways, these teachings go against all western theology. Perhaps Gnosis is primarily the ability to awaken a primordial serpent that humans have forgotten.
The Left-Hand Path
Since the dawn and sunsets of religions, the Left-Hand Path has thrived in the shadows of Orthodoxy. It has always embraced Luciferian truths, Morning Star theologies, and Promethean liberation. The Gnostics, despite some of their own orthodoxies, were the ultimate Left-Hand Path movement of history. We explore the contraband essence of the Left-Hand Path—along with some novel occult concepts that can bring about the fierce awakening for the 21st century human. These includes both ancient and progressive notions as the Daemon, Black Gnosis, Ancestor Guidance, Pandemonium, and Temple of Set ideology. Astral Guest—Edward Pandemonium, author of The Black Ship and Building the Living Temple.
Interview with Stephan Hoeller: The Life of a Modern Gnostic
Our 10 year anniversary special, and I couldn't think of anyone better to join us! One of the chief influences on Gnostic studies and theology in the 21st century has been Stephan Hoeller. This acclaimed scholar, author and Gnostic bishop materializes at the Virtual Alexandria to discuss his and anyone’s life as a modern Gnostic—including the many perils and opportunities. From metaphysical evil to the latest revelations on CG Jung, from authentic Gnosis to the Counterfeit Spirit of crony Gnostics, we understand what it means to take the Red Pill without a gag reflex.

Modern Gnostic Cults and Figures
We explore the modern manifestations of Gnosticism on today’s culture. This includes such mercurial figures as David Icke, John Lamb Lash, and more, as well as fiery artists like Philip K. Dick, Grant Morrison, and more. This investigation leads us to deeply understanding our present times of paranoia, conspiracy theory, and polarization – a prediction and promise of the ancient Gnostics. We also get acquainted with the latest Gnostic scholarship — from the Nag Hammadi library to Mary Magdalene. Astral Guest — Matthew Dillon, Professor of Religious Studies at DePauw University. As a bonus for members, we will provide our Trimorphic Paranoia: a roaring discussion group based on the interview and topic.

The Sethian Gnostics
Become a patron of Aeon Byte: http://www.patreon.com/aeonbyte. We delve deeply into the origins, influence and theology of Sethian Gnosticism. Not only was Sethianism the fountainhead of so many Gnostic schools in antiquity, including the Valentinians, Mandaeans & Manichaeans, they might be the Christianity before Christianity. We also discuss the ideas of other Gnostic sectarians like the Ophites and Barbelorites; and the intimate theology behind the Sethian Gospel of Judas and other so-called Gnostic texts. Astral Guest: John Turner, author of ‘Sethian Gnosticism and The Platonic Tradition’, Professor of Religious Studies at The University of Nebraska & one of the original translators of the Nag Hammadi Library.
Accessing the Pleroma
The Gnostics referred to the ultimate reality as The Pleroma, accessible to only those who had, as William Blake said, cleansed the doors of perception. For normal individuals, the Pleroma is only experienced in fleeting glimpses. For others, the doors of perception are fully opened by certain neurological processes starting with migraine and progressing through various altered states such as temporal lobe epilepsy, bi-polar syndrome, autism, and schizophrenia. We quest for the ways to manage these disorders, ultimately finding the universal means of accessing the Pleroma as the shamanistic Gnostics once freely did. This is part of our Schrodinger’s Diary Series, where we mine the Reality behind reality and the secrets of consciousness with the latest science and philosophy.

Ancient Shamans, Jungian Archetypes & the Monomyth
The hero's journey monomyth is at the core of stories worldwide among indigenous peoples, the ancients, and our modern society. We explore the deeper roots of the monomyth by looking at how hunter-gatherers viewed themselves within the natural and spiritual worlds through Paleolithic cave art from 40,000 years ago. With these insights, we deeply understand the history of western consciousness, from ancient Egyptian monuments to Greco-Roman mysticism, from Sahara nomads to many of the great mythic thinkers in the last century. It’s a journey of astrotheology, innovative archaeology, and Jungian/Campbellian Gnosis into the heart of reality and what it means to be human.

French Occult and Gnostic Masters
In the 19th century, a French occult movement flourished in Paris that forever transformed the landscape of esoteric spirituality. Without it, there might have not been a Golden Dawn or Theosophy. Beyond that, France has always been a hotbed of heretical religion. We journey into the ideas and impact of French Occultism, from Eliphas Levi to Papias, from the resurgence of Freemasonry to the renewal of the Rosicrucians, and everything in between. Furthermore, we understand the French Gnostic Church revival that set the foundation for both women and human rights in modern times. Astral Guest—Tobias Churton, author of Occult Paris.

The Gnosis of William Blake
The greatest Gnostic of the Enlightenment Period—and perhaps one of the greatest of all history—is the visionary poet William Blake. We acquaint ourselves with his life, his ethereal work, and his mystical legacy that honored the ancient heretics and defied the powers of Orthodoxy. We also partake in the gnosis of other Romantic poets like Shelley and Keats, and even beyond to Emerson and Herman Melville. Astral Guest-- Eric G. Wilson, author of ‘Against Happiness: In Praise of Melancholy', 'Secret Cinema: Gnostic Vision in Film' & 'The Spiritual History of Ice: Romanticism, Science and Imagination'

These Are Gnostic Times
The Gnostic nightmare seems to have come true in modern times. Humanity suffers under oppressive, surveillance, and stagnant systems, ruled by godlike overlords that stifle creativity and individuality. As some have said, it’s Philip K. Dick world. How did this happen and what can be done to break the bonds of the Archons? Our guest offers solutions and insights into dissolving the veils of the Matrix and restoring Sophia. Beyond Gnosis for the ages, we find that 2017 is indeed a year of the Apocalypse — while 2018 brings possibility but also more psychic death in the forms of transhumanism, transgenics, and a holographic geopolitical world. No one gets out of here sane. Astral Guest — Chris Knowles, author of Our Heroes Wear Spandex and The Secret History of Rock’n’Roll. This is a partial show.

The Resurrection as Ghost Story and Ancient Necromancy
Could the folklore of ancient ghost stories be the basis for the resurrection accounts of the New Testament? This intriguing idea takes us into the heart of the magical folklore and necromantic practices of ancient Jews, Christians, and Pagans. From archeological evidence to the latest scholarship, we encounter a Greco-Roman world where the lines between the material and spiritual were very blurred — and this includes Paul’s Christ who might have been a supreme specter.

Lucifer, Alien Meteorites and Astral Portals
Could Lucifer actually be an entity from beyond the stars, and not an archetype or spiritual ideal? Could astral portals in the Iberian Peninsula provide seekers with high states of awareness? These possibilities are found in a writer’s remarkable journey, which also encountered a secret society — preserved since antiquity — that influenced illustrious figures such as Salvador Dali, Jean Cocteau, Otto Rahn, and Howard Hughes, and even Bérenger Saunière (the cryptic priest of Rennes-le-Château). In the end, what the author discovered was an ancient drama for the soul of humanity. Astral Guest — Patrice Chaplin, author of The Stone Cradle and Lucifer by Moonlight.

Dreamwork and the Daemon in Neoplatonism
Neoplatonism encompassed a rich magical tradition. It pioneered the arcane arts of divination, Theurgy, and astral travel—all under the tutelage of each individual’s Daemon and a benevolent Demiurge. From Iamblichus to Proclus, from the Chaldean Oracles to the secret names of the gods, we mine the Neoplatonic philosophy for penetrating insights into modern Gnosis. We also touch upon the parallel Gnostic lore, all to enter a reality where dreams become manifest in a material universe ruled by the nightmares of a mad god. Astral Guest—Gregory Shaw, author of Theurgy and the Soul , as well as Professor of Religious Studies at Stonehill College.
The Gospel of Thomas
We thoroughly explore the origins, history, and doctrines of the Gospel of Thomas. This includes deciphering many of the sayings with the latest scholarship and theological insights. Is the Gospel of Thomas Gnostic? Did Eastern faiths like Buddhism and Hinduism influence its message? Can this text be relevant to today’s modern issues? Beyond the electrifying ideas of our guest, we provide a profound bonus from a hitherto unpublished interview with the late and great Acharya S on Christianity, Buddhism, and Mythicism. Astral Guest — Robert M. Price, author of Holy Fable Volume Three and the upcoming Holy Fable Volume Four. This is a partial show.

Irenaeus and the Heresy Hunters
Before Orthodox Christianity married the Roman State and began crushing the alternative Christianties, it laid the groundwork with the Heresiologists—powerful, influential men who were more obsessed with the Gnostics than the Gnostics themselves. The greatest of these Heresy Hunters was Bishop Irenaeus of Lyons. Not only did he twist and smear the Gnostic worldview in his writings, he was the architect behind the foundation of Catholic Church and the Bible itself. We scavenge the perverse yet genius mind of Irenaeus and some of the other church fathers in order to find yet more amazing truths about early Christendom. Astral Guest—Stephan Herman Huller, author of The Real Messiah.
Occult Messages in Movies: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
The medium of film has been a powerful conduit for contraband Esoterica, from the Theosopy of The Wizard of Oz to the Gnostic Gospel of The Matrix, from the Gnosis of Ed Wood to the dark magick of James Bond. We explore occult themes in movies, as well as their forbidden gifts message and arcane symbolism, revealing incredible mythological vistas to spiritual freedom. Astral Guest-- Robert Sullivan, author of Cinema Symbolism and The Royal Arch of Enoch.
The Secret Teachers of the Western World
Since the dawn of civilization, Gnostic individuals have preserved the living flames of the Esoterica. These sages, mystics and madmen guarded the ideals of Sophia in all ages, as well as battled the human tendency to construct a mechanical world. We take a journey through time and imagination, from Pythagoras to CG Jung, in order to understand these caretakers of the cosmos and gain their enigmatic Gnosis. Astral Guest—Gary Lachman, author of The Secret Teachers of the Western World Homepage: http://thegodabovegod.com/ More information on Gary: https://garylachman.co.uk/
Solomonic Magic and Astral Travel
Gnosticism has a pagan cousin called Hermetism, which was influential in ancient times, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment Period and most of today’s Occult Studies. We explore this essential prism of the Gnostics and how it influenced modern Magick in many of its variations. We also give a lesson on Solomonic Magic and how to Astral Travel from the comfort of your own home. Astral Guest: Aaron Leitch author of Secrets of the Magickal Grimoires: The Classical Texts of Magick Deciphered.
Saving Christianity
The Abrahamic faiths are on a collision course. Churches are empty across the Western World. Christianity has become a mile long but an inch thin, faltering under a fast-changing society of science, reason, and logic. Is this the beginning of the end for the world’s largest religion, or can the old approach of the Gnostics transform its tenets into a liberating force of body, mind, and spirit for the 21st Century human? And perhaps this transformation might influence the other Abrahamic faiths before we are plunged into another World War/Crusade.

Mythicist Milwaukee
One of the rising entities in the alternative media for freethought and studies in mythology is Mythicist Milwaukee. Beyond that, it also focuses on activists pursuits like bringing light to the plight of the Yezidi and other minorities. We understand the origins and purpose of this growing organization, and how it assists modern humanity with liberating Gnosis.
Anarchism and Gnosticism: Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio
INTERVIEW STARTS AT 16:00. And become a patron of Aeon Byte: http://www.patreon.com/aeonbyte Although mostly nonpolitical, the ancient Gnostics might find today civic kinship with the modern Anarchist movements. After all, the ancient Gnostics rejected all earthly and heavenly systems, demanding that their divine spark (rights) remain solely with the individual; and that all power corrupted and thus needed to be negated or pushed back against the establishments in one way or another. We make the case for Anarchism being the political home for any modern Gnosticism, in a world collapsing under the weight of vast and grinding and rusty political machines. Astral Guest-- Robert Bonomo, author of Your Love Incomplete and Cactus Land.
Buddhism and Gnosticism
A tour to the East to one of Gnosticism’s distant cousins. We dispel many of Zen Buddhism’s misconceptions—at the same understanding its origins, theology and philosophy that are a radical departure from mainstream Buddhism and all other Eastern faiths. We also parallel the similarities and differences between Gnosticism and Zen Buddhism (and traditional Buddhism). Lastly, we reveal steps to gain Gnosis through the practice of Zazen (meditation). In the end, we discover that the figure of Buddha was as radical a dualist and world-hater as Mani himself. Astral Guest—Brad Warner, author of Hardcore Zen and Sit Down and Shut Up and Nathaniel Merritt, author of Jehovah Unmasked.
Strieber, Dick, Castaneda and other Prisoners of Infinity
What if Whitley Strieber, Philip K. Dick, Carlos Castaneda, and other modern magical thinkers were creations of MKUltra laboratories? What if their work was part of a plot to manifest the dark apocalypses of transhumanism, AI, and eugenics? We explore these and other possibilities — even peering behind the curtains of Ufology and the Occult to catch Moloch men and their social engineering machinations. Astral Guest — Jasun Horsley, author of Prisoner of Infinity: UFOs, Social Engineering, and the Psychology of Fragmentation. This is a partial show for nonmembers.

The Left-Hand Path and the Brotherhood of Saturn
We quest for a profound understanding of the Left-Hand Path — from the ancient Gnostics to today’s Temple of Set. What accurately defines this Promethean ideology? What is being Luciferian in reality? Our exploration also focuses on an overlooked but influential secret society that draws directly from Classic Gnosticism: The Fraternitas Saturni (Brotherhood of Saturn). In the end, we contend that a lack of Left-Hand Path spirituality is what is dooming modern culture – and how to gain that perennial Gnosis. Astral Guest — Stephen E. Flowers, author of Lords of the Left-Hand Path and The Fraternitas Saturni. This is a partial show.
