The new-media revolution shows glimpses of THE NEW CONFRONTATION: That of MENTALITIES
This video gives way to multiple interpretations. What few people would comment on, however, is its gnostic origin. Signals are all around it: From the word Prometheus to the eye in the triangle; to the astounding initial statement that every human being is a god, and that through the internet he/she will become omnipresent, omnisapient (will know everything and all of us), and allmighty…
Or the statement that each of us builds his/her own reality and identity, temporarily, mutating even in contradictory ways, and for a low or high –but always painful, price (in the realm of Gnosticism, not even friendship is free…).
This kind of signals are key to decoding its message efficiently, and to take a knowing and responsible stance in regards to the phenomena we are living.
Despite the fact that the gnostic mentality has become common place –public, in the last two decades (particulary since 1995), few recognize it for what it is.
Who and how many are knowledgeable enough in our days, to build the puzzle from scratch with the many pieces it needs…?
Every human will only be free, if he/she knows where he/she is standing. But gnosis, by definition, cannot share what it considers its riches and the source of its power –information, but with a few –those who belong to its clique and who have paid a high and painful price for it (in Gnosticism, not even friendship is free)..
“Information is power and must not be shared” is clearly a gnostic statement; while “I prayed for wisdom, in order to learn it without malice and to share it with everyone without envy”, is the product of a religious revelation.
Why? Because the first one comes in the same pack with demiurges -imperfect or even bad gods human beings should fear, and whose protection should be bought, however unfair this may seem (even if these gods “are” merely humans or even ourselves).
The second one, on the other hand, comes with the existence of a single god that many cultures relate to a moral code, who by its own nature loves and wishes all of its creatures well, and because of which it desires “every human-being to come to know it, and to come to know truth –the opposite attitude to hiding information from almost everybody.
This is the new ideological dicotomy -the new sides we are expected to align with-or-against, as Rationalism continues to lose strength in our societies. Are we aware about this…?
