Many alternative thinkers will be familiar with the Gnostic concept that our material world is an illusionary prison created by the Demiurge and the other Archons, to distract mankind from enlightenment or true Gnosis. Although the Demiurge is depicted in many ways, the most recognizable image is that of a lion headed serpent.
In this design, the Demiurge’s image also alludes to a classic Ouroboros, the snake that eats its own tail. The Ouroboros has been said to be a symbol of “infinity” or “wholeness”, which we feel would be the preferred message of an entity looking to maintain it’s persistent deception.
Also, according to some descriptions of the Nag Hammadi text and several previous guests on The Higherside Chats podcast, the Archons reside somewhere near Saturn (the Black Sun of Chronos) and refer to the moon as a key element in our material matrix machine. Some also say that our DNA itself has been coded to keep us down.
It can be a lot to take in, but serious work went into symbolizing these deep, multi-layered, Gnostic concepts of reality in a single image, and we hope you like it. Good luck trying to explain it to inquiring minds in the checkout lane..
