This page is not a text of exposition, but a display of links and items relative to the talk.
Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821 - 1881). Actual quote:
Like many others before him and persisting into this day, Dostoevsky (who was deeply Christian in that ecdentric Russian way) placed humanity between God and Satan in a battle of cosmic proportions. This way of stating, or framing, the Great Deception seems, deceptively, to expose it, but in reality anyone who holds this view is totally caught in the Great Deception.
The battle is between Satan and God, with humanity in the middle -- this a paradigm to be revised along gnostic lines.
mythos: a story of what happens, an account of events
mytheme: a word coined by Mircea Elaide for a mythological theme that appears univerally in all cultures and times.
TOP 5 MYTHEMES:
Short and sweet, this is partial and provisional inventory of intervention scenarios. See also A Concise Inventory of Beliefs in the foundational essays on metahistory.org.
A few examples of divine intervention:
# Homer, Aeneid, Athens intervenes in the battlefield. Correction: it is the Iliad, not the Aeneid, which is a Latin poem by the Roman author Virgil, describing the aftermath of the same event, the Trojan War.
# Genesis 14: Melchizedek appears to Abrahman in the Grove of Mamre, assigning to him the mission of the Chosen People. Thus he establishes the "everlasting covenant" between the Hebrews and the male creator god, Jahweh. However, as explained in Not in His Image, the Hebrew people as a whole do not live out this covenant, only a small faction within the tribe so do, using the other "Jews" to achieve their righteous aim. These are the Zaddikites or Sons of Zadok who institute theocracy among the Jews.
# Buddhism: The intrusion of Mara and his demonic horde, counteracted by the intercession of the earth goddess, Sthavara (Stey-VAIR-ah). See The Tantric Conversion, I, The Earth-touching Mudra.
# New Testament: illumination of Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus. Described at length in NIHI, Ch. 4, The Cult of Righteousness. Correction: The citation is in Hebrews, not Romans. Both attributed to Paul.
# Islam. The case is anomalous, an aberration. The foundation of Islam is threefold: the Koran, the Hadith, and the Sira, biography of Mohammud, setting out the Sunna or example of Mohammad as the ideal or best human who ever lived, to be emulated in every way. Compare to Thomas a Kempis, Imitatio Christi.
Divine intervention in Islam -- a transmogrification, a mutation of the Hebrew and Christian messiah figures. The instrument is intervention in Islam is a faceless political ideology, not a person, although it is represented by men, theocrats who speak for god.
Political Islam: see Bill Warner: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0Uu4XnRS1hiz3JCpNFIuUg
#Miscellaneous: Bahullah who founded Ba'hai, Jeddu Krishnamurti who refused the role of the Maitreya, Sai Baba, Maharishi Mahesh, and others.
Two points of novelty in Sophia's Correction, presented as working propositions: interactivity and the adversarial stance against the Jewish-Muslim fix. There is a demonic intervention underway, standing against the divine intervention of the Aeonic Mother, prefigured in gnostic writings as Correction (diorthosis). There does exist a satanic plan to take down humanity.
You START with the elements to frame the current event. The polarity at play here is not the polarity of GOOD VERSUS EVIL.
Reframing Good versus Evil -- see ahead, Part 3, Neitzsche, The Genology of Morals.
The gnostic teacher presents a different model of divine intervention. The problem is complicated, but the solution is simple. God versus Satan with humanity in the middle is totally wrong. The picture of replace Dostoevsky's scenario of good versus evil is this: on one side, humanity, the Anthropos, and the other side, Sophia, the mother of the species, and between them, the enemies of life, the psychopaths.
The formula of three Ss: source, story, setting.
The battleground is the social order where the psychopaths seek to harm both humanity and the earth itself.
....Concluding, some confusion due to what I said in the interview with Lisa Harrison. For example, there is nothing evil in the Supernatural, but then again, there are supernatural forces attacking humanity.
53 m 53s: "Here comes the precision." Background sound of rain which started to fall at that exact moment. Notice how rainfail is precise.
The Archons are a satanic species, working against humanity. They present one supernatural extraterrestrial adversary -- one is all it takes. Learn all about them in the Fallen Goddess Scenario. No other explanation tells you how they originate.
Two acts of intervention in "Her Name is Silence": the demonic intervention of the Archons who chose the Jews to intrude upon humanity. Arabs are part of this problem, hence the Jewish-Muslim fix.
Gnostics took great care not to say that the Archons are evil, as such. They are agents of deceit, messengers of deception, lies. EVIL is the human component of the Archontic intrusion.

Hold the intention to master this slate of actors in the drama of human evil and supernatural powers.
Completely novel aspect of Sophia's intervention: the Goddess shows a sense of humor.
The witch has wit.
More consideration of the words witch and wizard forthcoming in talks ahead.
