In esoteric circles, Valentinus is considered as one of the great mystics and thinkers of early Christian history — even if his Gnostic ideas would later brand him a heretic by the nascent orthodox church. Yet his theologies are gradually being embraced today in the halls of mainstream churches, even by some of the most rigid Catholic orders. We welcome the return of Valentinus, from his transcendent philosophy to his meditative rituals, more needed than ever in a civilization losing hope for meaning and a higher purpose. We also discuss related topics for alternative Christianities of old like sacred theatre, occult sacraments for altered states, shamanistic Gnosis, and much more.

Being a successful horror writer is not easy today when all of reality seems like a nightmare and all horrors can be accessed daily on our screens. Our guest relates the challenges and opportunities of thriving as a horror writer, as well as how his magical/occult background assisted in understanding human reality. He also shares his story of being the force of the “Bind Trump” spell that went viral and continues to take the world by storm — including how most of the blowback came from occult communities. Tying in so much magic and mysticism, we soberly and reasonably take a look at many prominent conspiracy theories like Pizzagate, JFK’s assassination, UFOs, 9/11, Sandy Hook, and more – to find not just truth but a sense of clarity in oppressive and murky times.

A special show for very special reasons we shall mention. But it’s always special when we discuss an important avatar of Sophia: Mary Magdalene. We take a spanning odyssey to understand Mary Magdalene from many angles and interpretations — in the end seeing her as a leader and mystic of the ages. This exploration includes legends, gospels, and apocryphal works like the Gnostic texts, as well as Mary’s pagan aspects of Isis and other goddesses. Not least, we understand her impact on the early days of Christianity and throughout history (and why she was marginalized), including today when she is more needed than ever.

Our gods, those fonts of inspiration and entertainment, these days manifest as comic book heroes. Actually, many comic book heroes are directly based on ancient deities, rebooted to enlighten western culture. In a two-part episode, we delve into these themes and other relevant theological/cultural themes.

In our first half, the minds behind the upcoming and exciting documentary, Batman & Jesus, connect past and present dying and rising godmen (and of course share about the movie itself!). We also discuss social issues and the Mythicist Milwaukee Conference IV, where Islam and the Trump era take the main stage at the Buzzed Belief Debate.

In our second half, the Bible Geek himself explains the Jungian allure of modern comic book heroes. This includes how many of the Old Testament patriarchs were originally gods, marketed to their audiences as the comic book heroes of their days. Was Joseph really Osiris? Was Abraham originally a moon god? Were Zeus and Hermes actually the angels that visited Lot and his salty wife? Lastly, we gain the authentic truths behind such tales as Sodom and Gomorrah, the empire of King David, the Garden of Eden, and much more.

And yes, each guest tells us which is their favorite Batman movie. Don’t change your bat channel because there will also be plenty on the Gnostics.

Astral Guests — Josef K. Richards, director of Batman & Jesus; Sean Fracek, founder of Mythicist Milwaukee; and Robert M. Price, author of Holy Fable.

Part 2 of Secret Revelations in the Gospel of Thomas. Our guest expands his views and revelations, harnessing the mysteries of the “Fifth Gospel.” We delve into the secret history of the Bible to find the truth about Paul and James, as well as insights on many of the great global myths like Osiris, the Anunnaki, Buddha, Atlantis, and the falling out of Cain and Abel. With this knowledge, esoteric channeling tools are revealed that allow oracles from the spirit world and an understanding of the creation of the cosmos. Why all of this? In the end, we discover the stunning reality and nature of the Archons that is both interplanetary and transcendental — gaining the Gnosis to overthrow their control of the universe.

We interview the father of David Miscavige, the leader of Scientology. Ron Miscavige reveals the inner workings of the religion he belonged to for forty years, culminating with his escape and falling out with his powerful son. This which resulted in dangerous blowback. He also relates the intimate details of his relationship with David — from their close bond in early days to how the young Miscavige rose through the ranks and finally took over the entire organization. More than anything, this is a cautionary tale of the corrupting power of power and a father’s journey into making sense of a seemingly senseless world. For members, we take an electrifying quest into understanding the souls of two individuals who employed Gnosticism, one to weaponize for corrupt ends, the other to awakening humanity: L. Ron Hubbard and Philip K. Dick.

We showcase a manual for exploring the use of psychedelic substances in the contexts of spirituality, self-transformation, healing, and magic use. This includes understanding the issues addiction, legality, dosage, and even finding the right community of entheogen practitioners. And we offer both sensible and arcane ceremonies regardless of your location. From coming down from hallucinogens to exploring mild drugs as a first-time experience, no blue crystal meth rock is unturned. We also quest the historical usage and banning of entheogens — from the Mystery Schools to the Golden Dawn to alcohol prohibition, from the Gnostics to modern Ayahuasca shamans to the vile War of Drugs. Lastly, our guest grants us an overview of Chaos Magic and Gnosticism in modern times, and how they relate to psychedelics and individual liberation.

We explore the deep esoteric symbolism of movies and the minds behind them. This includes Gnostic themes in the artistic expression of David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick, as well as the octane Gnosticism of such directors as John Carpenter. We also explore the notions of predictive programming from illuminist factions and the prescient whispers of the collective unconscious. Was 9/11 foretold before 2001 and did the Moon landing never happen, according to certain movies? Did certain directors and writers work with the elite to enslave humanity?

From Peter Jackson to Walt Disney, from the mystic Catholicism of Sergio Leone to the Chaos Hermeticism of Alan Moore, we uncover broad occult themes that even film experts have missed — furthermore exposing the secret messages in such Masonic movies as The Ninth Gate and the solar ecstasy of Spaghetti Westerns.

Employing the latest research and discoveries, we investigate the truth beneath the self-crafted mythology of Gurdjieff and place him in the true context of his times. These include his many adventures across the world. We also reveal Gurdjieff’s sources for his transformative philosophy, his early interest in hypnosis, magic, Theosophy, and Spiritualism — and the profound influence of the Yezidis, Sufis, and other Middle Eastern Gnostics. We explore Gurdjieff’s ties to Freemasonry and his relationships with other spiritual teachers and philosophers of his age, such as Madame Blavatsky and Aleister Crowley. Most of all, we distil Gurdjieff’s Gnostic essence that is relevant for anyone seeking liberation from a machine world.

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.

Archetypes are a popular but ultimately misunderstood concept in Occultism and Western Esoterica. Even Carl Jung missed the mark when it came to archetypes and their liberating power. We keenly understand the idea of archetypes and their history — from Plato’s Cave to the Gnostic heresy, from ancient creation myths to the penetrating insights of Neoplatonism, all the way to alchemy and foundational psychology. These insights lead us on the sacred and profane pathways into the collective unconscious. In the end, we find the methods to unlock transformative forces that ultimately unveil our Higher Selves in a world of growing shadows.

The Gnostic message has translated extremely well to the medium of film, specifically in the genre of Hollywood science fiction — as both concepts speculate on possible realities, the nature of consciousness, and the destiny of humanity in an uncertain universe. This alchemical union has granted some of the most impactful modern myths of our times that include Dark City, The Matrix, The Truman Show, and others. We delve deeply into these classics, as well as explore many other Gnostic visual expressions, from the hit show Westworld to the Valentinian film The Others — finding insights and symbols that most experts have overlooked. Did their creators know of the Gnostic ethos? Why exactly is Gnostic cinema so popular this last generation, especially in America? More than art, we find a prophecy of dying empires and the falling of veils of illusion and conformity.

Astral Guest — Fryderyk Kwiatkowski, author of How to Attain Liberation From a False World? The Gnostic Myth of Sophia in Dark City

(Interview starts at 14:00 for any haters)

Fryderyk is a Ph.D. student at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków and represents the Facta Ficta Research Centre in Kraków He is preparing a Ph.D. on the reception of Gnosticism in Hollywood, which will eventually lead to a book.

A fascinating yet overlooked aspect of the Divine Feminine is Our Lady of Guadalupe. We explore this myth, set in an apocalyptic time after the clash of two bloodthirsty empires, the Aztecs and the Spanish. And how an astral appearance to a humble Truthseeker offered the timeless secrets of both pre-Columbian and Gnostic goddesses. Within this powerful narrative, we discover Kabbalistic, Hermetic, and Eastern philosophies that address the notions of suffering, the afterlife, and living a magical life. In the end, we draw parallels from those tumultuous times to our own tenuous days — finding the same, perennial wisdom of individuation, transcendence, and inner peace.

Carl Jung held unique views on UFOs, some recently discovered ones shocking for modern Jungians. We study these views on Extraterrestrials, as well as some thought-provoking interpretations that extend to Jung’s ideas on archetypes, altered states, the ego, death, and the Red Book. Our guest relates his own remarkable experiences and journeys that include his meetings with esoteric luminaries like Jiddu Krishnamurti, Timothy Leary, and others. He shares some astounding and penetrating revelations on such topics as facing the Void, Abraxas, occult, mythology, the Guardian of the Threshold, and much more— in the end granting powerful tools for those seeking to contact with higher realities.

The membership and impact of Freemasonry seem to dwindle. An overlooked form of Freemasonry might be the answer to those seeking an experience over networking, introspection over materialism. This Freemasonry allows women into its ranks and fully embraces the mystic sensibilities of old secret societies and the mystery religions. We understand the mostly untold story of these liberal Freemasons, Le Droit Humain, from their origins in the 19th century to their modern tenets that draw from the wisdom of Hermeticism. We also delve into Freemasonry proper, exploring its origins, influences, and vast symbolism — from the Knights Templar to Theosophy, from King Solomon to Rosicrucianism, finally addressing the issue of its influence on Western Society and the many new world orders that seek to enslave humanity.

A new book presents the most compelling new findings in the Christ-Myth theory and critically examines its controversial reception by biblical scholars; the extent and reliability of our sources for Jesus; and reveals the surprising history behind Jesus’ evolution. Moreover, we take a historical voyage upon the various streams that united to form Christianity, from the Jewish desire of a spiritual Messiah under the yoke of the Greeks, to the Mystery Religions of Roman times that provided a template for a Cosmic Christ – and everything in between. Our guest also weighs in on the Buzzed Belief debate between Bart Ehrman and Robert Price, as well as the problems with Mythicism today.

A unique book has just been published, endorsed by such lauded Gnostic experts as Elaine Pagels, Robert Price, and Lance Owens. It is both a heart-wrenching biography and a penetrating exposition on Gnosticism, full of orthodox deconstruction and dark parody. It is also a Jungian treatise on the nature of fallen men and fallen gods, brimming with the lore of ancient alchemists. In other words, it’s a new Gnostic Gospel. This work focuses on an often-overlooked cornerstone of Gnostic thought: the timeless love story of Christ and Sophia. From the elegant Valentinian myths to the romance of the Red King and White Queen manifesting in tales across the eons — we find how this transcendental story revealed itself in the life of a man and his struggle with family loss; and how it may reveal itself in your life in times when wholeness is the only answer to tragedy.

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.

The grand religious stories that gave meaning to life and death in the past have crumbled under skeptical scrutiny. The dominant mainstream philosophy is now scientific objectivism, which describes a universe that exists for no reason and a life that ends in oblivion. We address the “soul crisis” in modern culture that has arisen from lack of meaning – offering an intelligent “spiritual” perspective on life and death to help us make sense of a paradoxical world, which is sometimes bleak and banal, but also can be magical and full of significance. Our guest also presents a revolutionary paradigm shift in our understanding of reality that integrates the deepest insights of science and spirituality to create a new model of human identity – which makes the idea of the immortal soul intellectually credible.

The archonic influence on the cosmos is widely attested by Gnostics, past and present. But what went wrong and what can be done to break the bonds of these stellar lords and lords of our ego? How can the Powers of Light be accessed in an increasingly fragmented world? We deal with these issues in both metaphysical and psychological ways, drawing from the wisdom of ancient heretical mystics – and explore the nature of the universe, the spiritual and archetypal worlds, and the notions of life after death. In the end, we find solutions to breaking away from the bondage of the average and into the freedom of an individual higher calling.

The volcanic personality of the Demiurge in the Old Testament is no secret, and we cover much of it. However, many overlook the reality that the Demiurge’s influence soaks the New Testament, even in many of the teachings and actions of Jesus Christ. We explore some of the questionable dogmas of the Bible that today influence Christianity and beyond, including prophecy, the Trinity, eternal damnation, and salvation by faith. Our guest also discusses his debate with Bart Ehrman at the last Mythinformation Conference, the latest revelations on Mythicism and Gnosticism, and how he became a heretic in the Atheist movement.

Throughout history the Gnostics were accused of being dualists: those who saw the universe and mankind itself split between light and darkness, body and spirit. Were their enemies right, or did Gnosticism, as usual, buck any theological trend that adds to their uniqueness? We explore Gnostic Dualism through time and belief, adding yet to the enigma that is the Gnostic worldview. We also delve into other Gnostic theologies such as syncretism, mysticism, and more, and how they manifested across history — from the Valentinians to William Blake, from the Sethians to the Sufis — all to gain a comprehensive understanding of this forbidden faith and its dangerous spiritual tech known as Gnosis. And how it can help us today in this reality that is one big Fake News.

We take an alchemical examination of several classic texts in a search for hidden layers of meaning. These meanings are unlocked through a series of easy to follow steps, using a variety of steganographic and cryptographic techniques — as well as the insights of Gurdjieff and the Tao Te Ching. The message in fairy tales, Gnostic & Christian Gospels, and the works of Plato contain actual, undeniable information encoded into the texts ages ago. Their existence challenges everything we thought we knew about these texts, including our basic understanding of the Bible itself.

The Gnostic revival has ignited a resurgence of Gnostic Churches (and many misconceptions about them). One of the brightest flames is the Ecclesia Gnostica Mysteriorum, also known as the Gnostic Sanctuary — a place where spiritual pilgrims of all stripes can seek solace and nourishment for the soul. The church’s bishop has dedicated her life to the spread of religious individuality as well as the physical assistance to the downtrodden and sick. We take a voyage into this remarkable oasis and the true meaning of Gnostic sacraments, rituals and liturgy. We also focus on the exemplary and visionary life of the Gnostic Sanctuary’s Bishop, from her discovery of Gnosis to her commitment to shining the knowledge of the heart in the darkness of mere being. And we take a deeper look into the unique meaning and truth of Gnosis itself.

Despite abundant scholarship and debate, new research points that most of academia might have missed crucial revelations in the Gospel of Judas. This research reveals an even more enigmatic but profound Judas, especially when his gospel is related to Nag Hammadi texts like the Apocalypse of Peter or writings based on James the Just. We mine these gospels for startling insights that also provide the reality behind the canonical gospels and the arcane origins of both Gnosticism and Christianity. This all leads to a secret transmission of mystic knowledge that goes back to the beginnings of civilizations across the world.
