Today, this faith is best known for its assimilation into certain Christian scriptures, most notably, the Gospel of John and the Book of Revelations. However, most of the primary information relating to this religious sect has been lost and destroyed over the years.
But, in December 1947, a discovery was made in Egypt of a secret bank of primary sources relating to this influential faith, and intriguingly, these ancient texts may hold crucial information about the UFO phenomenon.
COULD AN ANCIENT RELIGIOUS FAITH HOLD THE KEY TO THE EXTRATERRESTRIAL PHENOMENON?
The Gnostics had a huge emphasis on altering their psychological state in order to reach wholeness and connection with the entire cosmos.
The ancient texts suggest that adherents to the religion use various methods to commune with the Universe, including psychoactive plants, yoga and sexual rituals.
In communion with the Universe, Gnostic seers came to develop a theological belief system centered on the goddess Sophia, the origin of divine wisdom. In addition to that , they also believed that inorganic alien beings were present in the solar system and had a pivotal role in determining the course of human civilization.
According to the ancient Gnostic texts, these aliens are considerably more ancient than the human race. In fact, they pre-date the existence of the solar system belief.
These aliens, which the Gnostics referred to as the Archons, were said to inhabit this solar system but were not capable of actually penetrating Earth. However, despite the fact that they cannot physically manifest on this planet, they are still capable of having an impact on the behavior of human beings.
The Archons are said to be an incredibly powerful alien race who can affect human beings en masse with subliminal messages which can alter consciousness.
According to the Gnostics, it was this subliminal conditioning that led to the creation of all the major ideologies on Earth including all the religious doctrines.
The Gnostic texts mainly focus on the Archons when referring to extra-terrestrial beings that existed throughout the Universe.
Most of these beings were considered to be either benevolent or totally indifferent to humanity, but the Archons were considered to be particularly hostile. Perhaps most intriguingly of all, these obscure Gnostic texts chime quite eerily with folklore and knowledge about extra-terrestrial life in the 21st century.
The Gnostics identified two types of hostile alien beings.
One of which was referred to as a neonate or embryonic form whose description chimes almost perfectly with the Tail Grey race of alien beings.
There is also another reference in the texts to a draconian or reptilian form of alien, which seems to chime with the contemporary reports of the Reptilian race of aliens.
Could this unusual comparison suggest that these ancient texts could be the key to unlocking the extra-terrestrial mystery?
