Note to all members
We are currently preparing to change the setup of this forum to focus more on imaginative & creative gnosticism, because we feel we should distance ourselves from the way thegodabovegod.com is increasingly aligning itself with conspiracy thinking.
We respect Miguel's choice of course, but that does not mean that we agree with it. We feel that conspiracy thinking is contrary to gnosis. It's simply not where we want to go.

If anyone is interested to continue a forum affiliated to thegodabovegod.com I am willing to help. Maybe you could start using the relevant part of this forum as a basis. Please contact me (Lúthien) if you are interested.

We've not yet fully decided on how to proceed; but I think that we should in any case cut the link with thegodabovegod.com (including the page there that links to the forum). We will also re-structure the forum, and put the old Ilsaluntë Valion board that focuses on Tolkienian gnosis up front again.
I will update this message as soon as there is something new to say.

Re: Above, Below, Within: Gnosticism and Witchcraft

There definitely is a supernatural and there must be if science is to evolve. Because there are most certainly things with which science cannot answer and these things by definition are "supernatural" phenomena. Realize, science still cannot fully explain space and time, which are fundamental to our...

Thinking in Pictures: Gnosticism and Autism

I have recently begun reading Temple Grandin's book: Thinking in Pictures - My Life with Autism. I started to think about how Gnosticism relates to autism. As a child, Temple realized her thought processes were different from most people--she thought in pictures. Autism has always been related to a ...

Above, Below, Within: Gnosticism and Witchcraft

I have recently begun reading a book recommended by Miguel in an "Abraxas Brief": Above, Below, Within. So, I thought it would make a good forum discussion. In particular, the book brings up a novel take on the supernatural, which I have never even considered. The idea that the planets cause effects...

Re: The Basics on Gnosticism

I always liked Albert Einstein's take on the matter. Now, here's a man where God and science stood side by side without a problem. And where science ends is where the supernatural begins. This has always been my view on the matter: Adopted from my highschool Physics teacher who, at one time, was a r...
