A central teaching of Gnosticism is that Satan created the world we inhabit. In this day and age, this sounds like an absurd assertion, yet scientists have recently started to take seriously the notion that super-intelligent angelic beings may be our creators. Is science catching up with the truths that Gnostics preached millennia ago?
A few years ago, in an article entitled “Children of an alien God”, science writer Marcus Chown presented a picture that chimes with the Gnostic vision of Biblical creation.
Our Universe may have been created by superior beings in another universe, according to a physicist in the US. If he is correct, it may finally explain what Albert Einstein called the most incomprehensible thing about the universe: the fact that it is comprehensible to human beings.
Edward Harrison of the University of Massachusetts came to this astonishing conclusion after attempting to explain one of the great puzzles of science: why the “fundamental constants” of nature appear to be “fine-tuned” for the emergence of life. A good example, he says, is the gravitational constant, which governs the strength of gravity. “If it were slightly smaller, stars like the sun would not shine,” says Harrison. “However, if it were slightly stronger, stars would burn their fuel and go out before there was time for biological evolution on any planets.”
“Conventional physics completely fails to explain this example of fine-tuning or many others,” says Harrison. “However, it is possible to explain them if the universe has actually been designed at a fundamental level for the benefit of life.”
This is not to say that Harrison believes in the necessity of a Creator. Instead, he proposes that intelligent life itself creates new “offspring” universes where conditions are just right for life. In each offspring universe, life then evolves to a high level of intelligence and in turn creates more offspring universes.
If you think this sounds like pure science fiction, you would be wrong. “We already have a mathematical blueprint for how to make new universes,” says Harrison. The blueprint is the creation of our own universe. According to grand unified theories, which attempt to show that the fundamental forces of nature are merely facets of a single “superforce”, the universe was created when a super-dense “seed” of matter triggered a runaway expansion of space. During this split-second phase of “inflation”, the matter to make countless stars and galaxies was conjured out of the empty vacuum itself. The universe, as proponents of inflation are fond of saying, was “the ultimate free lunch”.
Harrison says it would only be necessary to recreate the precise conditions that triggered inflation in our own universe in order to spawn a new universe. Alan Guth of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has suggested a way to do it using a 10kg mini black hole. Its super-dense interior would be the seed that would immediately inflate, not in our universe, but in a space-time connected to our own by the “umbilical cord” of the black hole. The cord would snap when the black hole “evaporated” and a new baby universe would be born.
Harrison says the precise details of universe creation do not matter. “The important thing is that if beings of our limited intelligence can dream up wild yet seemingly plausible schemes for making universes then beings of much higher intelligence might know exactly how to do it.”
The key feature of any offspring universe is that it inherits fundamental constants similar to those of its parent. This immediately explains why our universe is fine-tuned for life.
Until now, argues Harrison, only two explanations have been advanced for why the universe is set up for life. There is the “anthropic principle”, which maintains that we exist because the universe is that way; if it were different we would not be around to comment on it. “What is so unappealing about the anthropic principle is that it requires there to be countless lifeless universes,” says Harrison. “I consider that waste on a truly cosmic scale.” The alternative explanation is that our universe was designed by a Creator, a point of view accepted by many people – including scientists. “Unfortunately,” this explanation terminates scientific enquiry,” says Harrison.
Harrison’s theory of the “natural selection of universes” may offer a third view. “The creation of the universe drops out of the religious sphere and becomes a subject amenable to scientific investigation,” he says.
Harrison is not the first to propose the idea of self-reproducing universes. A few years ago, Lee Smolin of Syracuse University proposed that universes in which the conditions were ideal for the formation of black holes generated the most offspring universes. “However, there was no compelling reason why universes which were selected for black holes should also contain life,” says Harrison. “My theory makes the connection.” Harrison thinks the reason why the universe is understandable to humans is now clear. “The superior beings who created our universe inhabited one not greatly unlike our own. Our universe was not created by God – a superior being – but “angels” – superior beings!”
But why would intelligent beings want to make new universes? Harrison suggests several reasons. One may simply be to prove that it can be done. “It is not inconceivable that the goal of the evolution of intelligence is the creation of universes to foster intelligence.”
Then again, there is the possibility that superior intelligences may not be totally inaccessible for occupation and exploration by their creators,’” he says. “If intelligent being know how to create universes of various designs, they might know how to inhabit them by some form of transference.”
The obvious question is, how did the first universe begin? Harrison admits that one possibility is that God created the first universe. “Thereafter, superior beings in universes took over the creation of further universes.”
Another possibility, he says, is that there was an initial “ensemble” of universes, in which the fundamental constants had random values. Life was possible in at least one member. “Thereafter, by reproduction, intelligent universes dominate, and the original unintelligent members then form a vanishingly small fraction of the whole.”

Some scientists now openly talk about the possibility that we ourselves could create new universes in a laboratory. In an extract from
Alan Guth said: “I in fact have worked with several other people for some period of time on the question of whether or not it’s in principle possible to create a new universe in the laboratory. Whether or not it really works we don’t know for sure. It looks like it probably would work. It’s actually safe to create a universe in your basement. It would not displace the universe around it even though it would grow tremendously. It would actually create its own space as it grows and in fact in a very short fraction of a second it would splice itself off completely from our Universe and evolve as an isolated closed universe growing to cosmic proportions without displacing any of the territory that we currently lay claim to.”
If you had to choose one, which would it be? Don’t make it an academic exercise. Pour your heart and soul into choosing one over the others. It won’t do you any good to simply say, “I believe”. You must know. You must experience Gnosis.
The particular universe we inhabit is not random; it is designed. The fundamental constants that permit our existence did not appear out of thin air: they were specifically chosen. Our universe was constructed by a super-intelligence precisely with us in mind. The fact that the universe is perfectly suited to the evolution of humanity is in no way accidental.Gnosticism says that Satanel is the creator, the craftsman, the demiourgos. He is the omniarch – the ruler of all – and the cosmocrator – the one possessing world power. Atheists might reject such a characterisation, but none can deny that there is persuasive evidence that the universe we see around us is too well-tailored for us to be anything other than the product of conscious design. If the fundamental constants of nature were marginally different, we wouldn’t be here. Unlike evolutionary theory, where it is true that apparent design can arise from a long process of natural selection, fundamental constants are, by definition, not amenable to evolution and change.
There are two main possibilities: either there’s an infinite number of universes where all conceivable values of fundamental constants can be found (in which case we inhabit a random universe where chance supplied the fundamental constants that underpin our existence), or there’s one universe where the fundamental constants have been specially chosen (in which case we inhabit a unique, designed universe created by a super-intelligence that knew how to assemble the correct set of fundamental constants). Which alternative do you prefer?
The universe where everything is just right for our existence has been labelled the “Goldilocks” universe. Is it just right by chance or design? Your answer will shape your approach to life.
Can we also put another, even more important truth of Gnosticism, on a firm scientific footing that would give atheists pause for thought?
Illumination does not teach that there are two separate physical universes – one containing the True God and another created by Satan. Rather, Satan’s universe physically exists within the greater universe. In other words, the “Big Bang” represents a temporal event within a pre-existing, limitless universe. The universe of the Big Bang has a beginning and an end, but the universe enfolding it does not. The Big Bang universe is expanding, but it won’t go on expanding forever. It is not expanding (or stretching) into nothing as some scientists claim. In fact, the idea of pure nothingness is incoherent since every scientist accepts the concept of the quantum vacuum: a sea of virtual particles, a sea of Becoming where Being and Nothingness are inextricably linked.
According to exponents of relational time and space, if all objects were somehow removed from the universe there would be no time and space, but it is now an accepted truth that the quantum vacuum would still be there. In other words, the quantum vacuum takes the place of what Newton referred to as absolute space. Although time might not be particularly meaningful in the quantum vacuum, it is still possible to talk of a temporal succession of events, so although there is no absolute time (in a Newtonian sense), there is still time of some description. Space and time, as manifested through the quantum vacuum, are integral to the universe.
If there is an entity that can be regarded as absolute space – the quantum vacuum – then, at the very least, the expanding universe must be expanding into it. In fact, the Big Bang universe is expanding into a pre-existing universe – that of the True God. The Big Bang universe is a finite universe within an eternal, infinite universe. That point must be emphasised. Although our universe is vast beyond the imagining, it is of no size at all in comparison with infinity. If our universe ends, that does not imply the end of the greater universe – the macrocosmos.
But how can a physical sub-universe exist within a physical super-universe without catastrophic collisions taking place all of the time? The answer lies in the definition of “matter”. Illumination teaches that “matter” is what exists in a physical universe (a universe with dimensions) as opposed to a mental universe without dimensions. But it goes on to draw a sharp distinction between two different types of matter. The matter that Illumination condemns as the creation of Satan is matter that possesses mass. But there is also other matter that has no mass but still exists within the dimensional universe. Light, consisting of massless photons, is matter of this type. Light, massless matter, is always contrasted in Gnostic thought with mass-matter.
It turns out that modern quantum physics provides a precise technical vocabulary for what Illumination has always taught. All elementary particles can be divided into two categories: matter particles (known as fermions) and force carrying particles (called bosons). Fermions can be further subdivided into quarks and leptons. As for bosons, there are six types: photons, W and Z bosons, gluons, gravitons and Higgs bosons (the existence of the latter two has not yet been experimentally verified). Photons, gluons and gravitons have zero mass.
Illumination teaches that the super-universe is the province of matter without mass. In the language of ancient times, it is referred to simply as the “kingdom of light”. As for Satan’s sub-universe, the “kingdom of matter”, it consists of quarks, leptons, bosons and nothing else (apart from the fluctuations of the quantum vacuum that pervades all of existence).
The key to the division between the kingdom of light and the kingdom of matter is the Higgs boson, sometimes referred to as the “God Particle”. (In The Armageddon Conspiracy, it is named the “Satan Particle” since it is the centrepiece of Satan’s creation.) Higgs bosons are the particles associated with the Higgs field and it is by “swimming” through the Higgs field that particles acquire their mass. If there were no Higgs bosons and no Higgs field then nothing in the universe would have mass. Critically, photons, being massless, do not interact with the Higgs field or with Higgs bosons. They don’t feel the Higgs field.
Illumination has always taught that light and matter are in opposition and now physics has reflected a sharp divide between photons (light) and particles with mass. They can co-exist in the same environment, but whereas fermions interact with the Higgs field, photons do not.
Another astonishing finding of physics is that bosons obey “Bose-Einstein” statistics while fermions obey “Fermi-Dirac” statistics. The key point here is that fermions comply with the Pauli exclusion principle: two fermions cannot occupy the same quantum state. Bosons are completely different. No exclusion principle applies to them and they can occupy the same quantum state. It is this feature that underlies laser technology.
It also underlies something much more remarkable. In the kingdom of light, everything is made of photons. Bodies can be created from photons obeying Bose-Einstein statistics. “Angels” are made of photons. And they can enter the material universe that we inhabit and return at a later time whence they came. The kingdom of light is not “perishable” in the way that the kingdom of matter is.
As we have said, the material universe created by the Big Bang is vast beyond comprehension, and no human will ever escape from it in human form. It is therefore understandable that some people refuse to speculate about what lies beyond. They will never reach the boundary of our universe, so why concern themselves with it? In ancient Gnostic thinking, there is a boundary (“horos”), which prevents entry to the kingdom of light, conceals what happens there, and allows only the elect to pass through to the higher kingdom.
Ask yourself this: if it is possible to have a universe that envelops this one, from which access to and from this universe is possible (at the speed of light), and that can contain bodies that obey Bose-Einstein statistics rather than Fermi-Dirac statistics, is this is a legitimate scientific basis for that most elusive of entities that has always haunted the human imagination: the immortal soul?
The soul is not an entity from an invisible, unknowable, unreachable other dimension. It’s from the universe of light that surrounds our universe of matter. It is real. It manifests itself as an energy field – an aura – around us. And it can return whence it came. Exactly as Gnosticism has always taught.
Most religions assert that heaven and hell exist in a mysterious and unknowable different dimension from that of our existence here on earth. They claim that faith is required to cope with this ineffable enigma. Illumination, on the other hand, teaches that knowledge is the key and faith is less than worthless. The kingdoms of heaven and hell (light and matter) exist in the same physical realm, the finite kingdom of matter within the infinite kingdom of light, separated by the boundary (horos). The boundary can be crossed without invoking spooky, supernatural, metaphysical forces. The process is amenable to study by conventional science.Mass-matter can exist only where the Higgs field is present. It is not present in the kingdom of light: no mass-matter can exist there. Light, on the other hand, can exist in both kingdoms and can travel back and forth. That is the basis of “angels” and “souls”. Do you see? Light can exist in two, entirely different universes. Light is the key to everything. That is why the Iluminati chose that name for their secret society. That is why their religion is called Illumination. Light – illumination – is the secret of life. Light is knowledge. Light is thought. Light is gnosis. Matter, faith and Satan are the darkness that must be dispelled. Turn to the light.
The scientific basis of what is taught by Illumination lies in fermions and bosons, Fermi-Dirac statistics and Bose-Einstein statistics, mass, photons and the Higgs field. Although it could be argued that humanity has a vast and impressive knowledge of fermions (matter particles), the science of bosons (photons, gravitons and Higgs bosons in particular) is in its infancy. As mentioned earlier, Higgs bosons and gravitons haven’t even been experimentally verified as of 2009. By 3009 (if humanity has survived and retained an advanced civilisation), human knowledge will be utterly transformed in comparison with its present state. Above all, we will have begun to understand light. Many scientists openly acknowledge that photons are the strangest and most mysterious particles in existence.
The kingdom of light – the focus of the ancient Gnostic religion of Illumination – is the key to all of humanity’s hopes and desires. Every day, science gets a tiny bit closer to this kingdom. The word “science” is derived from the Latin “scientia” – knowledge. “Gnosis” is the Greek word for knowledge. Illumination seeks to bring science and gnosis together as the source of complete knowledge, accessible to all. Illumination has already performed a similar task. Alchemy, an endeavour created by the Illuminati, evolved into chemistry – gnosis and science combining. Now biology, psychology and physics must come together under the umbrella of gnosis. Knowledge, not faith, is the key that unlocks the mysteries of existence. Faith is what Satan relies upon. Knowledge is what will set humanity free.
Reject faith. Reject Satan. Reject the Old World Order. All religions that place emphasis on faith are Satanic. Faith is the path not to salvation but to perdition. If you want a physical vision of inescapable hell, picture a being of light being sucked into a black hole. Nothing, not even light, can escape from a black hole. Trapped forever. In hell. Do you want that to be your fate?
The universe is mysterious but not unknowable. Gaining knowledge is the greatest challenge facing humanity. Those who turn to faith instead are lost. They will never attain true knowledge. It is easy to say, “I believe”. To say, “I know” is the most difficult task of all. If you embark on the path to Illumination, do not for one moment think it will be an easy road. It is designed to present the most insurmountable obstacles. Only the most meritorious will achieve Gnosis.
In The Armageddon Conspiracy, Satan manifests himself on earth via the legendary Ark of the Covenant. His great foe Lucifer, Angel of Light, the first Angel, most beloved of the True God, manifests himself via the equally legendary Holy Grail. Perhaps those with eyes to see and ears to hear will now begin to appreciate how such things may be possible. The Armageddon Conspiracy is a dramatisation of an ancient plan by the Illuminati, devised by their grandmaster King Solomon (the wisest man of all), to capture and kill Satan within the holy of holies of Solomon’s Temple, using the Ark of the Covenant.
It is not impossible.
Satan can be defeated. The Old World Order can be defeated.
Welcome to the New World Order – a world free of the slave religions of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. No more Mammon. No more Leviathan. No more people prostrate before false gods, no more people on their knees before their masters.
The end of slavery is coming. The kingdom of light is at hand. The new dawn.
