Hello, A video game has come to my attention, which depicts SO descriptively and accurately the place/role of man in the world, that I was impressed with it, and I would like to use it as an example so as to better analyze the way of our escape from this world of hostageship. Of course, in this video game there is no way of escape and that is why it is called “portal: no escape” ie: portal without escape. In our case, however, there is an escape portal, as long as someone follows the correct procedure. So I will recite the story/plot of the video making some brief parallelisms to our own reality before proceeding to the deeper analysis of the subject. The story is as follows: A woman wakes up in a room without remembering who she is or how she got there … This point represents the amnesia which we all suffer from because we do not know why we were born in this world, nor where we came from, nor where we go after our death. The story tells us that this woman is there, as hostage of a threatening and aggressive smart artificial intelligence called GLaDOS (Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System), which is very narcissistic. We can identify this point, precisely with the personality of the archon of this world, who defines himself as supreme; a characteristic described in a very caustic manner in the apocryphon gospel of John, where it says: “And he is impious in his madness which is in him. For he said: ‘I am God and there is no other God beside me’, for he is ignorant of the place from which his strength has come.” Seeing blood on her shirt, the heroine of our story realizes there is something carved in the back of her neck. With the help of a mirror she sees that there is a barcode there. This point can be paralleled to the binary(twofold) operating system of our dyadic world, that is our prison. The woman then is overwhelmed by anxiety, and searches for some way of escape. Suddenly on a wall of the prison, she notices some mysterious symbols that trouble her and she tries to understand the message they are hiding. These symbolize the riddles of this creation, which people are called upon to solve. A security camera from a corner of the prison always watches her every move. The security camera is paralleled to the all-seeing eye. Time passes, eating the food the guards throw at her, from a slot in the prison door. People are forced to eat – from both matter and energy – what the material system offers us whether we like it or not. The woman spends her time exercising her body intensively, and also studying the symbols on the prison wall. This is symbolized by mainly the spiritual exercise that is absolutely necessary in order for someone to initiate the process of escaping from this prison of material-energy existence, which always goes hand in hand with the investigation of the mysteries of this world. The heroine of the story, after decoding the hidden message of the engraved symbols, is led to discover hidden within a wall of the prison, a device. This device allows her to create portals in space. This is a new hope for the candidate escapee which is paralleled to the transcendental capabilities that one develops after spiritual exercise. These transcendental capabilities can serve either the positive or the negative power of this world. In the first shot with the new device, the portal created uses the thermal/hot force, which is one aspect of the dominant duality, and in the second shot the gate created uses the cold force, namely the opposite side of the hot force, being a part of duality as well. However, both the two gates that open lead the heroine again back to her cell. Because both sides belong to the same fake coin … The woman escapes when a guard enters her cell. This outcome can be paralleled to the time of our death, where we leave the cell of our material body, passing however- as we will find later – to a wider prison. The pursuit of the heroine begins, with the guards going after her. This scene can be compared to the post-mortem areas, where the soul is pursued by legions of wicked spirits – goblins and demons – seeking to hinder its course, as all religions describe. The heroine, passing through narrow corridors and difficult passages, manages to escape, reaching the roof of the building. Precisely there, at the highest energy dimension – the roof of the building – the soul arrives also after passing all the post-mortem levels from the lowest to the highest. The resting plane of the soul, is called by some Nirvana. However, as we will see, this plane too lies inside the prison. The woman of our story then realizes that the image she sees as a landscape in front of her is not real, but a virtualized impenetrable barrier; and by putting her hand on this barrier, she realizes she is in a wider prison where she cannot see the exit anywhere… This last scene reminds me of the experience of two men of antiquity that was depicted in text. So Enoch says in his apocryphon book: “They elevated me aloft to heaven. I proceeded, until I arrived at its wall built with stones of crystal. A vibrating flame (tongues of fire) surrounded it, which began to strike me with terror.” And Plato in his work Republic confirms Enoch’s experience, with the experience of Er the Armenian, who remained dead for several days and coming back to life, described his experience to his townsmen. Plato describes the event: “I shall unfold, the tale of a warrior bold, Er, the son of Armenius, by race a Pamphylian. He once upon a time was slain in battle, and when the corpses were taken up on the tenth day already decayed, was found intact, and having been brought home, at the moment of his funeral, on the twelfth day as he lay upon the pyre, revived, and after coming to life related what, he said, he had seen in the world beyond.” And Er says among others: “To this light we came after another day’s journey; and we saw there that the edges of the sky stretched out ending into the middle of that light, which was the girdle of the sky, and it enveloped the entire circumference/revolution of the sky evenly, holding it together like the under girders of triremes.” We will now proceed to a deeper analysis of the subject The authorities of this world through the free will they supposedly provide us with, suggest as a choice possibility, one of the two opposing positions that exist as forces of this creation. Thus, the story clearly shows the possibility of opening a “portal” of escape, with both opposing forces of this world/matrix: The frozen (positive) one and the fiery (negative) one. None of them however can ensure the getaway! Both portals lead the fugitive back to his cage, because both of these powers are under the power and control of the Matrix prison. That’s what men do: They use the matrix’s tools and with them they hope to escape!!!! They are integrated into groups: Some who join the positive side where they are trained to its qualities/traits: positivity, healing, foresight, futurology and other favorable benefits of the sixth sense; and the others who join the negative side, serve the dark powers and magic, hoping that these powers will open the great gate… Positivity aims to present the matrix prison as beautiful and tempting, preventing every aspiring escapee from leaving it. Negativity succeeds to confuse and short-circuit his brain. A sad situation!!! The real danger/trap for man is that he hasn’t realized yet, that both these two powers-good and evil- are servants of the Matrix… When the unified undivided True Light was encased(entrapped) between the two polar opposites of the fission of this twofold creation, it was forced to oscillate in a hopeless effort to unify them, thus channeling and consuming its energy in the movement between the opposite poles which never unify into one. Thus, the illusion of motion and alteration was born. Oscillation is a wave, symbolized by the wavy movement of the snake. All beings as they move, oscillate; but the movement of the snake describes clearly this oscillation. In this particular story, the characteristics of Yin and Yang are described very successfully! While the heroine attempts to escape from the hot- for example – gate, she returns back to her cell, from the opposite gate, the cold one… The law of oscillation prevails everywhere, as each situation gives birth to its opposite. Thus, the hot gate opens a passage to the cold one, as day gives birth to night and night gives birth to day. Inhalation brings exhalation and exhalation brings inhalation. Everywhere the same endless circle of alternating oscillation, where everything gives birth to its opposite, and it simply transforms. Everything is subjected to this inviolable law. A negative situation forces man to move to a positive position and vice versa. This is what the Second Thermodynamic Law of entropy and enthalpy states, where everything progressively acquires greater disorder. Because anything that increases order, has the inevitable consequence, that somewhere else disorder will increase. Everything relies on this; from the decay of a fruit to the declination of old age or of entire civilizations. In reality there’s neither good nor evil, neither positive nor negative, only our own alternating perception, depending on which point of the wheel of “life” we find ourselves in each different occasion. From there, we observe life’s events, and they sometimes seem “good” to us, and others times “evil”. But if we shift to the opposite end to the one we originally were, we’ll perceive the same events from a different perspective and we’ll characterize them completely different than before. The Gospel of Magdalene states regarding this peculiarity of matter: “What is the sin of the world? The Master said: There is no sin, but it is you who make sin exist when you act according to the habits of your nature” And then someone will wonder: -And how can we escape from this trap, since we are doomed to fail no matter which side’s (positive or negative) tools we use? Firstly we must realize that we are in a prison. Coincidentally, the story of the video game gives the same description with the one I give in my book about man’s counterfeit freedom. Specifically I write: “The freest man today has the same amount of ‘freedom’ a prisoner does in his cell, who can either lie down, walk around, read, sleep, dream, remain standing, or sit -but always in his cell.” But this imprisonment is also described by Plato in his work of Phaedo (about the Psyche=Soul) and says: “Now the idea that is taught in the secret teaching about this matter, (is that) we men are in a kind of prison and must not set ourselves free or escape… and that the gods are our guardians and that we men are one of their possessions.” The heroine of the video already knows very well that she is in prison, and she accepts the care of her guards when they provide her with food through the door slot. This knowledge however, is not adequate on its own. Something more is needed: The realization/understanding that both sides of the coin – although different from each other- belong to the same fake coin, something that is confirmed in the Gospel of Philip where it says: “The light with the darkness, life with death, the right with the left are brothers one to another. It is not possible for them to be separated from one another. Because of this, neither are the good good, nor are the evils evil, nor is the life a life, nor is death a death.” This understanding of the universal duality, further leads to the realization of our own dyadic and divided existence. It is comprised of the two spiritual parts of man: The Divine Spark/Adam that is incarnated in the material human being (man or woman), and his higher Spiritual state that is called Higher Self or I AM PRESENCE/Eve or by other similar names. Plato, in an excerpt from Symbosium where he describes the unified hypostasis of man, doesn’t refer to the material state of man, but to a Spiritual one; that’s why he says that “at the beginning man was round and his sides were forming a circle”. The point of interest is the division of that Man by Zeus, a division similar to the one of Adam and Eve. The excerpt mentions the following: “For our original nature was by no means the same as it is now. In the first place, there were three kinds of human beings, not merely the two sexes, male and female, as at present: there was a third kind as well, which had equal shares of the other two, and whose name survives though, the thing itself has vanished. For ‘man-woman’ was then a unity in form no less than name, composed of both sexes and sharing equally in male and female; …Secondly, the form of each person was round all over, with back and sides forming a circle…Zeus…said: “I will slice every one of them in two, so that they are made weaker.” This division resulted in the death of man, i.e. his imprisonment inside the Matrix. The Gospel of Philip clarifies it: “When Eve was in Adam, there was no death: When she was separated from him, death came.” If someone, separated from his Higher Spiritual part, decides to escape the Matrix, HE WILL FAIL. To escape he must be COMPLETE, FULL i.e. UNIFIED. Let’s see now how this can be achieved. Everything in this world is a fractal that infinitely extends in a repeating pattern. Everything that exists in the microcosm also exists in the macrocosm. Every level is in accordance with all other levels. So let’s come to the axiom that physicists state: “If two photons at a given point, have interacted very closely, no matter how much we distance them from each other, then these two photons will not behave as two separate objects, but as a single one with mutual properties and behavior. If we separate them from each other too much and provide one with an information, then with astonishment we find that the information is transferred to the other in speeds multiple to the speed of light.” Let us now compare these two photons which were initially interacting, to the originally unified Celestial Man i.e. the Divine Spark and the I Am Presence After their separation (the two photons) are like Adam and Eve, where they distance themselves from each other and each one follows its own course. In this particular case Adam (=Divine Spark) is incarnated in the material plane sometimes as a man and others as a woman, and Eve as his I AM PRESENCE or Higher Self, wanders in the HIGHER energy planes/dimensions of this world and specifically in the Higher Mental Plane. The desideratum is that both parts of the divided man receive the information that ONLY UNIFIED CAN THEY ESCAPE THE MATRIX PRISON. The Gospel of Thomas says about this: “When you become One out of the two, when you make the inner like the outer and the high like the low, when you make male and female into a single One, so that the male is not male and the female is not female, when you have eyes inside your eyes, a hand inside your hand, a foot in your foot, and an icon inside your icon, then you will enter the Kingdom!” And I add that …Then you will escape the Matrix!!! When this information becomes understood, then both spiritual parts of man, will initiate a re-unification process. However, the greatest part of this obligation falls on the incarnated part of man. First of all, the Divine Spark, must be freed from the demons that control him. This is accomplished after many years of intensive spiritual exercise – on the three phases of self-knowledge – combined with prayer and meditation. There are many kinds of meditation. However, the meditation required for this particular work aims at the identification of the problematic elements of the character, and with mind control techniques, these defective elements must diminish, so that the lower nature of man is controlled/tamed, and the demons of the passions and weaknesses are silenced, leaving the road free towards the seventh energy center. Only this way the imprisoned Divine Spark will be able to reach the point where he will meet his higher spiritual part to unite with it. This is an “engagement” period… And like in a human relationship there must be mutual cooperation, mutual concessions and the leading role must be assigned to the more competent one, the same principal applies to this Spiritual relationship between the two divided parts of the same man, assigning the leadership to the wiser one. Here, however, people come face to face with the biggest obstacle! Their “ego” -The human “ego”; and instead of giving the leading role of this very difficult task of escaping to their Higher Spiritual part, they assign it to their material one including the astro-aetheric material parts and they assume “action” as a fighter!!! …This is where they literally lose the game … Like the heroine of the story!!! This is because the laws stipulate that no prisoner in an energy level can refute the administrators of the matrix because no astro-aetheric or material human body can be stronger than the body of its creators the ones he has to confront. But if the action is given to the Higher Spiritual part (The “I AM PRESENCE”), then the terms and the actions change since only that part is in a position to confront the archons of the Matrix and win! The material part then -including the astro-aetheric bodies- does NOT act, it subsides to a second place and becomes humble and it simply informs the Higher Spiritual part about the surrounding conditions and situations and submits to the instructions of the Higher Mental Nous. This man is then characterized as spiritual. Have a good night!
