From Greek archai, "origins, beginning things, prior in time."
In the classical Mediterranean world, archon was commonly used for the governor of a province, or, more loosely, any religious or governmental authority. Hence the plural, Archons, is often translated in Gnostic texts as "the Authorities." (There is no Coptic word for Archon, so Gnostic texts use the Greek term in Coptic transliteration.)
Pronounced Ar-kon. Adjective, Archontic (Ar-KON-tik).
In my usual habit of attempting the impossible, I propose three definitions, or three levels of definition:
Level One - Cosmological
In Gnostic cosmology, Archons are a species of inorganic beings that emerged in the solar system prior to the formation of the earth.
They are cyborgs inhabiting the planetary system (exclusive of the earth, sun and moon), which is described as a virtual world (stereoma) they construct by imitating the geometric forms emanated from the Pleroma, the realm of the Generators, the Cosmic Gods.
The Archons are a genuine species with their own proper habitat, and may even be considered to be god-like, but they lack intentionality (ennoia: self-directive capacity), and they have a nasty tendency to stray from their boundaries and intrude on the human realm. Archons are said to feel intense envy toward humanity because we possess the intentionality they lack
The Gaia Mythos describes how the Archons were produced by fractal impact in the dense elementary field arrays (dema) of the galactic limbs, when the Aeon Sophia plunged unilaterally from the galactic core. See especially Episode 10.
This event is also described in detail in Alien Dreaming.
Level Two - Noetic-Psychological
In Gnostic psychology, the noetic science of the Mystery Schools, Archons are an alien force that intrudes subliminally upon the human mind and deviates our intelligence away from its proper and sane applications.
They are not what makes us act inhumanely, for we all have the potential to go against our innate humanity, violating the truth in our hearts, but they make us play out inhumane behavior to weird and violent extremes.
Left to our own devices, we would sometimes act inhumanely and then correct it, contain the aberration. Obviously, we do not always do so. In the exaggeration of our insane and inhumane tendencies, and in extreme, uncorrected deviance from our innate intelligence, Gnostics saw the signature of an alien species that piggy-backs on the worst human failings.
Hence, Archons are psycho-spiritual parasites.
Yet as offspring of the Aeon Sophia (see below insert), they are also our cosmic kin.
Gk: "emanation, divine power, cosmic time cycle. " Pronounced A-ON,. Adjective, Aeonic. E.g., "Reefs of Aeonic dreaming." (Gaia Mythos)
This essential term in Gnostic cosmology might be useful in getting away from the awkward terms God and gods. An Aeon is a god understood, not in theological terms, but in terms of the physics of consciousness.
Aeons are not entities but processes that may best be conceptualized as immense currents, but currents that are alive, self-aware, sensuous. The Goddess Sophia who becomes embodied as Gaia is an Aeon, hence the Aeon Sophia.
Aeons are gendered. In some Gnostic scenarios the male counterpart to the female Aeon Sophia is the Aeon Christos.
As inorganic entities of two types, embryonic and reptilian, Archons can at moments penetrate the terrestrial atmosphere and terrorize humans, although there is no reason or order to these forays, for the aliens cannot remain for very long in the biosphere and, anyway, they have no master plan to accomplish here.
The ontological status of the Archons is dual:
they exist as an alien species independent of humankind
they exist as a presence in our minds, rather like a set of programs operating in our mental environment
The risk they pose by invading our mental software is far greater than any physical risk they might pose by erratically breaching the biosphere.
Working through telepathy and suggestion, the Archons attempt to deviate us from our proper course of evolution. Their most successful technique is to use religious ideology to insinuate their way of thinking and, in effect, substitute their mind-set for ours.
According to the Gnostics, Judeo-Christian salvationism is the primary ploy of the Archons, an alien implant.
Our capacity to discern alien forces working in our minds is crucial to survival and co-evolution with Gaia who, as Sophia, accidentally produced the Archons in the first place. (This comment belongs to Level One, the cosmological definition, but as so often happens with Gnostic teachings, noetic and cosmic elements tend to merge.)
By recognizing and repelling the Archons, we claim our power, define our boundaries in the cosmic framework, and establish our purpose relative to Gaia, the indwelling intelligence of the planet.
Level three - Sociological
In the Gnostic view of human society, the Archons are alien forces that act through authoritarian systems, including belief-systems, in ways that cause human beings to turn against their innate potential and violate the symbiosis of nature.
LIVE spelled backwards is EVIL, but the Archons are not evil in the sense that they possess autonomous powers of destruction, able to be applied directly upon humanity.
They are agents of error rather than evil — but human error, when it goes uncorrected and runs beyond the scale of correction, turns into evil and works against the universal plan of life. Gnostics taught that the Archons exploit our tendency to let our mistakes go uncorrected.
Because the Archons need human complicity to gain power over humankind, any one who assists them can be considered a kind of Archon, an accessory. How do humans assist the Archons?
One way (suggested in the Level Two definition) is by accepting the mental programs of the Archons — that is, adopting the alien intelligence as if it were human-based — and implementing those programs by actually enforcing them in society. Another way is by actively or passively conforming to the agendas so proposed and imposed.
Jacques Lacarriere suggests that Gnostics detected the humanized face of the Archons in all authoritarian structures and and systems that deny authenticity and self-determination to the individual.
He argues that Gnostics recognized,
"the fundamentally corrupt character of all human enterprises and institutions: time, history, powers, states, religions, races, nations..."
(The Gnostics, p. 24)
Corruption occurs, not because we make errors, but because the errors we make go uncorrected and extrapolate beyond the scale of correction. Lacarriere says that Gnostics reached this conclusion “out of rational observation of the natural world and human behavior.”
Ultimately, they asserted the,
“contention that all power – whatever kind it may be – is a source of alienation... All institutions, laws, religions, churches and powers are nothing but a sham and a trap, the perpetuation of an age-old deception.”
This may seem like a dark view of human affairs, but given the evidence of history (not to mention current events), it cannot be said to be unfair or exaggerated.
For an intimate glimpse of Gnostic teaching on the Archons, including advice on how to act when directly confronted by them, consider the passage from The First Apocalypse of James, cited in A Gnostic Catechism.
Archons are an anomalous species of inorganic beings that arise outside the Pleroma, in the limbs or arms of the galaxy. They are called Archons (from Greek archai, "elementary, from the beginning") because they arise first, before the Earth is formed. Their bodies are formed of elementary matter (quantum fields) in a pre-organic state. ...
Archons - A parasite of a different order Exploring archons in his new book, Wetiko - The Greatest Epidemic Sickness Known to Humanity, psychologist Paul Levy writes, "When people are infected by the wetiko virus, Forbes writes, they are "the host for the wetiko parasites." The wetiko germ is a psychic tapeworm, a parasite of the mind.
What Are Archons? The Gnostics, a mystical branch of christianity, have known about anti-awakening forces for centuries and wrote about them in their work describing them as "Archons." Gnostics believe Archons are the servants of the Demiurge, the "creator god" that stands between the human race and experiencing divinity.
The Archons are deeply upset because Eve has defeated their plan to stupefy Adam, so they turn their attention to her. Here The Reality of the Archons presents a version of the alien interbreeding myth from the Sumerian cuneiform tablets: And the Archons became attracted to Eve, the primal woman.
The Archons can't inhabit earth, which is hostile to them. Archons are caught in a delusion they created humans. They have no soul, only a hive like common mind. According to John Lash Gnostic texts describe two kinds of Archons, an embryonic or fetal type - hence, the Greys of modern UFO lore - and a reptilian type.
Human Energy = Loosh - Food for the Archons Loosh is defined by the urban dictionary as, "an energy generated by all organic life in varying degrees of purity, the clearest and most potent coming from humans - engendered by human activity". Shocking as it may seem, humans are not at the top of the food chain.
Archons are predatory cyborgs, lacking creativity, but can imitate with a vengeance. Their expertise is simulation ('HAL', virtual reality), and the Demiurge fashioned a heaven world, copied from the Sophianic original, but completely fake.
Archons are a robotic force and they want to make humans like them. The reptiles' god is technology. Icke's dystopian view of the future assumes that the masses will stay glued to their TVs, locked forever into the hive mind of the Matrix, which says 'I have no power'. Is it a lost cause? "No way!" thundered Icke to rounds of applause.
As well as, that three of the seven are one and the same as the listed Archons. What does this mean - that there is in fact a plan, instead of the Lucifer exile theme. Furthermore, there is reference to a name that may explain this; Little IAO, so perhaps this could be seen as the lesser and the greater beings.
