We explore the modern manifestations of Gnosticism on today’s culture. This includes such mercurial figures as David Icke, John Lamb Lash, and more, as well as fiery artists like Philip K. Dick, Grant Morrison, and more. This investigation leads us to deeply understanding our present times of paranoia, conspiracy theory, and polarization – a prediction and promise of the ancient Gnostics. We also get acquainted with the latest Gnostic scholarship — from the Nag Hammadi library to Mary Magdalene.
