Ancient Gnostic schools provided exhaustive answers for the eternal questions of humankind: Who are we? Where did we come from, and why do we exist? What gives rise to endless and inescapable evil and suffering? Today, Gnosticism has meaning and relevancy, shedding light on fundamental questions about the universe, ourselves, and the divine. And it might be a last hope to reversing the imminent destruction of western culture.

With the candidacy of Marianne Williamson and the continued faltering of traditional Christianity, A Course in Miracles has caught the interest of seekers and many in the general public. What exactly is this alternative and personal Christianity that views the world as an illusion? How is it like ancient Gnosticism and how can the works of Philip K. Dick help us understand its theology? We answer these questions and more while exploring the doctrines of ACIM on the afterlife, forgiveness, sin, and salvation.

Nothing says a Gnostic Christmas more than facing Yaldi-Baldi and his Archons. Merry Matrix! Frank discusses a fascinating cosmology that includes the creation of the Demiurge, the rise of Abraxas, and the fall of God into human consciousness. His narration takes us to a history of redemption encompassing Atlantis, the gods Horus, Isis & Osiris, the threat of the AI Sphinx, and the truth of who Christ is. And much more!

Chris Knowles is a leading voice today on synchromysticism, alt-history, and modern occultism. He discusses the writing and content of his debut novel — a turbo-charged thriller that blurs the lines between fiction and nonfiction, taps into PhilDickean energies and timeless esoteric themes. Our conversation leads to Gnosticism in general, current conspiracy culture, and the autobiographical magic that is fiction writing.

Beyond sensationalism and disinformation, we find the real elite organizations and alternative political movements that have shaped western geopolitics. We explore their magic and symbolism that often gets turned outward toward unsuspecting masses. All of this also leads to encountering the usual Gnostic bogeymen and archontic powers, with us seekers in the middle fighting for that inner illumination.

It’s a special episode covering Hermes Trismegistus and Hermeticism. From the history to the theology to the impact on western culture, we leave no Philosopher’s Stone when it comes to this Pagan Gnostic tradition. Our exploration includes several bonuses, including Hermetic spiritual techniques and the hidden places Hermeticism exists today few have noticed.

As the Abrahamic dispensations falter in the west, ancient Pagan faiths are becoming increasingly popular. How are they different than their original forms? How do they manifest with modern audiences and in the digital revolution? What are some of the negative aspects or dark sides of modern Paganism? From sacrificing to the gods to politics in covens, from cool Pagan flicks to the purpose of magic, we get a state of the union of Paganism today.

Astral Guests — Scarlet Ravenswood and Dan Shakus, hosts of The Cosmic Keys Podcast

We intimately understand the events and processes that allowed CG Jung and JRR Tolkien to enter the Imaginal. Can we access those creative energies and charged symbols from the realm of archetypes to alchemically transform ourselves and the surrounding culture for the better? Our quest into the minds of these magicians of the imagination leads us as well to discover the deeper meanings in such hallowed works as The Lord of the Rings and The Red Book.

Our guest intimately shares his “total recall” with a past life of the 19th century. This disclosing leads to startling revelations about occult and literary luminaries like Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Dickens, Albert Pike, and others. In this entire process of remembering, we learn the science, techniques, and rituals to finding our past incarnations. Beyond establishing reincarnation as a doctrine, we discover how various traditions including the Gnostics approached the notion of the transmigration of souls.

Mithras is a misunderstood and overlooked god. This deity and his cult have been a leading force in the rise and fall of empires, as well as the architects of world religions that exist even today. Just as astounding, the Gnostic stream of Mithraism has been equally influential in the engineering of cultures. From original Buddhism to the Carpocratians, from the Mazdakites to the Assassins, we encounter a Gnosticism more radical and Promethean than ever imagined, fueled by a supreme God above all gods.

Scott Smith returns quickly to the Virtual Alexandria, with his better half Sandra Wells, to discuss a lot of magic, miracles, and other mayhem from a Gnostic perspective. This all centers on debunking those professional debunkers who attempt to smother any form of paranormal or holistic research.

Friedrich Nietzsche remains today a cultural icon and enigmatic philosopher. His ideas have informed many modern art expressions and occult movements. But are the Gnostic themes in the ideas of Nietzsche? We answer that question by exploring various Nietzschean concepts like the Death of God, Eternal Reoccurrence, Apollo & Dionysus, and the Abyss. What we encounter is an ancient Gnosis few in history have heard or even experienced.

Jay Dyer and Scott Smith joined us for a civil but passionate debate in our latest Aeon Byte Live. We discussed the Gnostic and Orthodox differences on Theodicy, Biblical Inerrancy, Free Will, Salvation, the nature of Jesus, and much more. Is the world evil or in harmony? Is the Old Testament about a good or evil god? What were the true origins of Christianity? And much more. For some reason, my vaping was as incendiary as the topics.

We take a deep dive into the Gospel of Mary, from its discovery to its doctrines. Beyond revealing Mary Magdalene as a preeminent master of ancient mysteries, we glean her spiritual techniques of meditation, transcendence, and how to become fully alive as a human being. This understanding includes the Gnostic ideas on sin, Nous, kenosis, and oneness with the divine. Our in-depth exploration takes us on a quest through the New Testament, Christian legend, and censored history to find the authentic Mary Magdalene.

All movements eventually stale and must find ways to revitalize under changing times. This truism goes for any Left-Hand Path tradition. A new work details reforms to the oversights of past magicians like Aleister Crowley. This reboot of sorts results in optimized rituals and the ability to navigate magic systems in these both digital and arduous days. And an understanding of the New Aeon and what it means.

Despite their individualistic vibe, magical movements like Thelema are primarily focused on community and group-support. We explore how to find an occult community, optimize group rituals, and whether occult organizations can thrive online. Can magic and Gnosis exist in virtual realms? This search includes understanding the history and evolution of group magick rituals, from Aleister Crowley to Lon Milo DuQuette, as well as the future of occult rites in the digital age.

Rising accounts of extraterrestrial encounters indicate that something momentous is happening across society. Even the mainstream media have started reporting on the sightings from military pilots around the world. Are we being observed and visited by beings from another planet or a different space-time dimension? Is this just mass projection or some big reveal coming from some faction? We deal with all these questions from various angles that include scientific, spiritual and psychological – tapping into the ideas of impactful thinkers like Richard Dolan, John Lamb Lash, Carl Jung, Rudolph Steiner, Patrick Harpur, and more.

Astral Guest – Daniel Pinchbeck, author of The Occult Control System: UFOs, aliens, other dimensions, and future timelines.

As a bonus, Scott Smith, author of God Reconsidered, joins us for a Trimorphic Paranoia, sharing his ideas and experiences on UFOs, including the possibility it’s all the Archons.

Superstition is more than just believing in fiction. It’s a dangerous incubator for cognitive dissonance, confirmation bias, and warped perceptual filters. Most of all, superstition cuts us off from experiencing the sublime and engaging in deep introspection. We deal with Christian superstition, from the notions of eternal damnation to the idea of a personal Jesus (and much more) — all to uncover the Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Since ancient times, some have mapped the journey to find indwelling divinity and cosmic meaning. They are the real Illuminati. We travel across history to understand these psychonauts that include the Greek philosophers, Christian Gnostics, Hermetics, Greek Orthodox mystics, Enlightenment Secret Societies, and more. This expedition grants insights into finding your inner illumination to thrive in a time where humanity deteriorates in the darkness of mere being and collapsing societies.

Ready to delve into the monomyth and other cultural dreams of ancient and prehistoric man? Get your Nous dirty with some archaeology? This leads us to understand the truth behind such primordial myths as the cosmic egg, the cosmic mountain, cyclical time, the hero’s journey, and more. In the end, what the world of archetypes delivers is an actual clash of myths and clash of civilizations in the form of the TMT controversy in Hawaii. What side will you take?

Today’s culture obsesses over the topics of robotics, artificial intelligence, and transhumanism. These ideas are timeless, however, and were explored in ancient Greek myths and philosophy. We take a journey into humanity’s eternal impulse to create sentient tech – from the tale of Talos to the rebellion of Prometheus, from Aristotle’s speculation on slave automatons to early attempts at cyborgs. In ancient and modern times, we keep running into demiurges on Olympus and their machinations to make man into an obedient replicant.

In modern times, man has attempted both ambitious scientific and magical experiments. These experiments are sometimes connected. We explore these connections that include the Montauk Project, The Philadelphia Experiment, and several Babalon Workings. This inspection covers the lives of several occult luminaries like Jack Parson, Aleister Crowley, L. Ron Hubbard, Marjorie Cameron, and more. All this perhaps leads to the Gnosis of the ages and the conquest of time.

It's a deep dive into the mystic and occult themes behind Game of Thrones, including a foundational Gnostic narrative. Is the Night King the Demiurge? Are the Children of the Forest a representation of the fallen Sophia? What do all the religions of Westeros represent, and what are the Jungian Campbellian ideas behind many of the characters? And much more, including a discussion on whether the last season was any good.
