The Creation of Chaos

At the beginning of time, Sophia (the world soul) broke away from Christ (the world spirit) and gave birth to Yaldabaoth, the arrogant creator-god of the Old Testament.

The exact process by which this cosmic fiasco occurred was the subject of much debate among the gnostics; in perhaps the oldest version of the story, Sophia’s desire somehow veiled infinity, casting a murky shadow which congealed into a dark ocean set apart from the realm of light:

“A veil exists between the World Above and the realms that are below; and Shadow came into being beneath the veil; and that Shadow became Matter; and that Shadow was projected apart. And what she [Sophia] had created became a product in the Matter, like an aborted fetus.” [1]

The pool of darkness transformed into a yawning abyss of chaotic energy and began to produce terrible, half-formed mutants:

“[And] as for the shadow, the powers which came into being after [it] called it “the limitless Chaos.” And out of it every race of gods was brought forth, both one and the other and the whole place…” [2]

  1. this is just another form of satanism. Trying to turn everything in old testament around so now its God who fell from Heaven and the serpent who is a savior. I dont know about you guys but i wont be tricked out of eternal life. Put your trust in Jesus Christ who died for the sins of the world and rose again on the third day.

  2. There is no such thing as chaos. If there were then it would have been used as a code. Even an information loop has a beginning and an end. We can crack every code ever made. What was thought to be random or chaotic is simply a fractal. Therefor there is no chaos only unrecognized order. See FRACTALS. Also take a look at the background radiation from the BIGBANG. it is being registered by NASA as we speak. It is an oscillation, or frequency. Everything which exists is a vibration or frequency. We know that our atoms are vibrating at a certain frequency. We know that all matter is vibrating at a certain frequency. You cannot put your hand thru your computer. Ergo ipso facto you are vibrating at the same rate as your computer. This frequency changes from minute to minute. No chaos.

  3. This a journal expounding on the Gnostic Myth of Creation, come on people stop being so ignorant, like the god you claim to serve.

  4. Have you ever read the bible and realize ,something is’nt right about this.I have always had a problem with the old testament,you know thou shall not kill,thou shall not kill,ect…ect…then on the way to the promised land God sent them to these villages and 15,000 men fell that day ,and God then ordered the killing of the Male children and all women who were not virgins ,and keep the virgins for yourselvesect..ect.. Well I don’nt know about you guy’s but that does’nt sound like my father.Now I have more examples but I shall end with a question.
