Gnosticismo Cristão

Este é um excerpto duma obra muito dificil de encontrar de Philip K. Dick

The Ten Major Principles of the Gnostic Revelation

The Gnostic Christians of the second century believed that only a special revelation of knowledge rather than faith could save a person. The contents of this revelation could not be received empirically or derived a priori. They considered this special gnosis so valuable that it must be kept secret. Here are the ten major principles of the gnostic revelation:

1. The creator of this world is demented.
2. The world is not as it appears, in order to hide the evil in it, a delusive veil obscuring it and the deranged deity.
3. There is another, better realm of God, and all our efforts are to be directed toward
a. returning there
b. bringing it here

Exegesis, by Philip K. Dick

Como será fácil de perceber, estamos aqui e acolá a deixar de uma forma esparsa e aparentemente desorganizada indicações e pistas sobre temas que futuramente abordaremos com mais detalhe. Muito mais.

Does "The Matrix" ring a bell?
