February 10, 2008
John Lash is a scholar of comparative mythology. He joins us to discuss his book "Not in His Image: Gnostic Vision, Sacred Ecology, and the Future of Belief". John explains how a little-known messianic sect propelled itself into a dominant world power, systematically wiping out the great Gnostic spiritual teachers, the Druid priests, and the shamanistic healers of Europe and North Africa. They burned libraries and destroyed temples in an attempt to silence the ancient truth-tellers and keep their own secrets. In this program, John talks about Gnosticism, the origins of the Gnostic Texts, and who has transalated it. Later, we talk about the Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. We focus on Christianity and talk about the saviour complex as well as God's need for a sacrifice. The continuation of our interview with John Lash is a terrific segment. We discuss the Archons, what and who they are. We talk about what they want and their purpose. Are people under the influence of the Archons today? Are our technological developments and the possible creation of a "simulated world" part of the Archons' trickery to set us on another path? Are transhumanists manipulated or influenced by the Archons? Other Topics Discussed: the Gnostic theoory of alien intrusion, Roswell, 1947, the grey's, AI and robots, Archons in bodies, DNA, the Archon X prize of genomics, HAL; the Coptic word for simulation and much more.
