The Gnostic Theory of Alien Intrusion
Since the explosion of the ET/UFO phenomena in 1947, speculation about
alien intrusion on planet Earth has been rampant. Half a dozen theories
dominate the debate, but there is one theory that has yet to be examined.
It did not emerge after 1947, but approximately 1600 years earlier. To
be precise, the evidence of this theory came to light through a discovery
in Egypt in December, 1945, although the significance of the find was
not realized until — guess when? 1947.
In that year, French scholar Jean Doresse identified the Egyptian find
at Nag Hammadi as a cache of rare Gnostic texts. "Gnosticism" is
the label scholars use for a body of teachings derived from the Mystery
Schools of pre-Christian antiquity. Gnostics who protested against
Christian doctrines such as divine retribution and Christ’s resurrection
found themselves targeted as heretics and were brutally suppressed
by early converts to the One True Faith. This is the untold story of
how the Mysteries ended. Since that signal year, 1947, some of the
lost Mystery School knowledge has been recovered.
Gnosis (“inner knowing”) was a path of experimental mysticism
in which the initiates of the Mystery Schools explored the psyche and
the cosmos at large. Using psychoactive plants, yoga, and sex magic,
these ancient seers experienced altered states and developed siddhis,
occult skills such as clairaudience and remote viewing. Gnosis was a
kind of yogic noetic science melded with parapsychology. In heightened
perception, Gnostics developed a vast cosmological vision centered in
a female deity, the Divine Sophia. The Gnostic creation myth is unique
in that it includes a full-blown explanation of how inorganic alien beings
came to be present in our solar system.
The Nag Hammadi material contains reports of visionary experiences of
the initiates, including first-hand encounters with inorganic beings
called Archons. Gnostic teaching explains that these entities arose
in the early stage of formation of the solar system, before the Earth
was formed. Archons inhabit the solar system, the extraterrestrial
realm as such, but they can intrude on Earth. Interestingly, this Gnostic
insight accords closely with the view of Jacques Vallee, who maintains
that ET/cyborgs probably belong to the local planetary realm. Vallee
also proposes that the ET/UFO enigma is a “spiritual control
system,” a phenomenon that “behaves like a conditioning
process.” (Messengers of Deception). This is exactly what Gnostics
said about the Archons: they can affect our minds by subliminal conditioning
techniques. Their main tactics are mental error (intellectual virus,
or false ideology, especially religious doctrines) and simulation.
Archons are predatory, unlike a wide range of non-human and other-dimensional
beings also know to the Gnostics, beings who are benevolent or neutral
Physical descriptions of Archons occur in several Gnostic codices. Two
types are clearly identified: a neonate or embryonic type, and a draconic
or reptilian type. Obviously, these descriptions fit the Greys and
Reptilians of contemporary reports to a T. Or I should say, to an ET.
Delving into the Gnostic materials, it is quite a shock to discover that
ancient seers detected and investigated the problem of alien intrusion
during the first century CE, and certainly well before. (The Mysteries
date from many centuries before the Christian Era.) What is amazing
about the Gnostic theory of the Archons is not only the cosmological
background (explaining the origin of these entities and the reason
for their enmeshment with humanity), but the specificity of information
on the alien m.o., describing how they operate and what they want from
us. For one thing, Gnostics taught that these entities envy us and
feed on our fear. Above all, they attempt to keep us from claiming
and evolving our “inner light,” the gift of divine intelligence
within. While I would not claim that Gnostic teachings on the Archons,
or what remains of such teachings, have all the answers to the ET/UFO
enigma, one thing is clear: they present a coherent and comprehensive
analysis of alien intrusion, as well as specific practices for resisting
it. They are far more complete and sophisticated than any theory in
In short, the ancient seers of the Mysteries in Europe and the Levant
seem to have accomplished 2000 years ago what many of us have been
attempting to do since 1947: figure out who the ETs are, where they
originate, how they relate to us, and most important of all, how we
ought to relate to them.
As far as I know, apart from myself only one writer on the ET/UFO issue
has directly identified the Gnostic Archons with contemporary ETs.
This is Nigel Kerner, whose book, The Song of the Greys, is a strange,
singular and little-known contribution to the debate. Kerner cites
the Nag Hammadi texts just in passing, and does not elaborate on Gnostic
teachings about the Archons. He makes a strong case for alien interference
with the human genome, but this claim does not stand up against Gnostic
analysis. Gnostic texts use mythological language to describe actual
events in prehistory as well as long-term developments in the human
psyche. According to the ancient seers, Archons cannot access our genetic
makeup but they can fake an intervention. Considering the confusion
of humanity in modern times, a faked intervention would be as good
as real. This typifies the Archon tactic of getting us to imagine and
believe things that are not true, and to accept simulation for reality.
In this way, Gnostics taught, these alien cousins can deviate the human
species from its true and proper course of evolution.
The unique emphasis on the Goddess Sophia is the high inspirational message
of Gnosis. The ancient seers taught that, through a special link to
the Goddess, our species can overcome the Archons and secure a human,
and humane, future for the Earth.
