Another question was sent to us by email:
Can you please explain briefly the gnostic cosmology and where humans stand in this mix?
This is a bit difficult to answer in that there are several different cosmologies adopted by different sects of Gnostics. The best way to understand these is to understand that any cosmology is both allegorical and symbolic…or we could say that they represent an ontology: a systematic philosophical unfolding coupled with an allegorical history.
But what this really does for us as Gnostics, is to free us from an official doctrine of ‘how it all began.’ So that we can recognize that we are each gods and that it all began with each of us, individually.
