Preface

This pivotal philosophical study deals with the Gnostic tradition of Christianity and explains how this religion has plagiarized all its basic religious concepts from Neoplatonism of Plotin (Plotinus)– the most congruent gnostic study of human transcendence in the history of Western philosophy. This translation will deepen our discussion on the greatest fraud of humanity which began with the obfuscation of the life of the historical personality of Apollonius of Tyana as that of the fictitious Jesus, St. Paul, and St. John, the Revelator (John of Patmus), who were mythological split personalities of this great teacher in the Antiquity.

This philosophical study is an important introduction to our imminent ascension and appearance as ascended masters, predicted in the bible as the “Second Coming of Christ” at the End Time of Christianity. This will happen simultaneously with the manifestation of the healing centre in Diano Marina, Liguria, Northern Italy, which we are actively building now, and the establishment of Rome and Italy as the world spiritual centre of the new paradigm of ascending humanity.

This spiritual transformation of Italy first and then of the entire world will be based on the new Gnosis of the Universal Law which is eternal and a further development of Neoplatonism (watch also this popular video on Human Gnosis by our PAT members Ingrid und Otfried Weise):

Neoplatonism and Christianity – Part 5

The Trinitarian Strife

The neoplatonic threefold division of 1) the Divine (Being, Nous, world soul), 2) the individual soul and 3) the lower world of becoming and physical forms was already taught by Ammonias Saccas and adopted by his disciples, Plotin and Origen. This gnostic categorical system goes back to Plato, which he discusses in his dialogues Timaeus and Phaedo.

This tripartite structure was not an apodictic proposition, but only a descriptive presentation of the phenomenology of the soul, as we have seen it in Plotin (51). Basically, it is a consequence from the concrete application of the number “3”, which, as stated above, is the universal number of space-time and without which no Gnosis can exist.

Analogous to this tripartite categorical system, the exegete Origen now developed a tripartite structure of the Christian God with the help of biblical allegories. Accordingly, God consists of three divine parts which are related to each other and form the wholeness of God. This relationship is called “homooúsios” in Greek, which means “of the same spiritual substance“. This term is genuinely neoplatonic and was also used by Origen only in this sense (see quotes above). The ancient Greeks understood “substance” as the “underlying energy” which forms the true Being and is therefore of spiritual nature. According to Plotin, Being (Nous) and Spirit are one and the same, as we have seen above. For this reason not only Origen, but also Paul before him, speak of the “spiritual” body.

Origenism and Bible Exegesis

The birthplace of Neoplatonism was Alexandria, which quickly spread throughout the Hellenistic world and found its main base in Italy. It was for this very reason that the entire Pre-Constantinian Church was spiritually dominated from Alexandria. From 200 A.D. onwards numerous Neoplatonists and Stoics appeared there, such as Pantaenus and Flavius Clemens, who recognized the inexhaustible possibilities which Christianity offered for the application of Greek philosophy, if this doctrine were only correctly grasped. The aim of these numerous writers of high intellectual aspirations was to liberate early Christianity from all sectarian and ascetic narrowness, from its apocalyptic rapture and theological weirdness.

This Alexandrian school of Christian Neoplatonism culminated with Origen, the founder of Bible exegesis and the most prominent Neoplatonist after Plotin, with whom he was friends during their apprenticeship with Ammonios Saccas. He is not only the greatest Bible scholar of ancient Christianity, but also, in my opinion, in the whole Christian history to this day.

Everything that was said and written after him about the Bible and the Christian doctrine feeds on Origen, without even beginning to reach his originality and depth. He is also the first philologist (linguist) of antiquity in the modern sense. His semantic approach to the analysis of Bible texts impresses as unusually modern and actual even today.

With his exegesis Origen irrevocably combined Christianity with Greek philosophy and is thus the founder of Greek-Christian syncretism, whose de-hellenization in the following time is so bitterly deplored by Pope Ratzinger.

Neoplatonism of Plotin (2)

Plotin justifies the “immortality of the soul” (2) in unison with Plato in Phaedo and Timaeus in the first place with her incorporeality. He’s making the following distinction:

Body, transient  –    Soul, incorporeal, immortal,

which he underpins in his writings in many ways. These two categories later gave rise to the two basic currents of Western philosophy – materialism and idealism. Materialism deals with the transient world of the body, which is a “world of becoming”; idealism – with the true Being, the world of immortal, bodiless souls. For the ancient Greeks, true Being was always bodiless, invisible and accessible only to the logical mind. For this reason Being is at the same time the home of Spirit. The two top categories of Neoplatonism are:

1) Body = Becoming

2) Soul = Being = Spirit = Nous.

The senses and all sensory perceptions belong to the transient body and can only grasp the objects of the visible world. The abstract ideas, like those of geometry (e.g. circle, triangle), are essentially bodiless and belong to the soul and Spirit; they can, however, take on a physical form as concrete objects.

The disembodied soul penetrates the body in the sense of Aristotelian entelechy. The soul exists before the body and begets it; conversely, the body cannot beget anything without the soul.

The soul is a part of the Divine Being. She sees the eternal True, the Beautiful, the Virtuous. For this reason all the sciences lie in the soul. The sciences that humans develop on earth are a remembrance of the incarnated soul.

Empirism has not yet understood this simple fact. Only with the discovery of the Universal Law and the development of the new axiomatic theory of knowledge, which departs from the Primary Term of human consciousness, this Platonic knowledge was confirmed forever.

Neoplatonism of Plotin (1)

In his preface to Plotin’s Enneads, the collected works of this unusual thinker, unparalleled in his gnostic depth and stringency, his disciple and editor Porphyry wrote that his master belonged to the kind of people who were ashamed to dwell in a physical body on earth. In writing so, he merely wanted to emphasize Plotin’s spiritualization, which is a salient characteristic of all ancient philosophers and achieves a masterly literary representation in the Platonic dialogues in the form of Socrates, beyond the philosophical background.

Those who have carefully read and understood Plotin’s Enneads will take Porphyry’s statement for granted. Unfortunately, all established  philosophers and philologists who wrote about Plotin’s teachings in the following period and were read by myself, including the German editor of the Enneads, Richard Harder, have imperfectly understood the Gnosis of Plotin, partly misinterpreted it, and in essential areas deliberately distorted it.

Considering the stringency and inner coherence of his thoughts, such secondary interpretations and unduly interferences not only prove to be unhelpful, but extremely obstructive, even harmful – they merely dilute Plotin’s thoughts and rob them of their gnostic content.

This deficit can be explained by the fact that all the interpreters of Neoplatonism did not have the old soul age of Plotin. For this reason they were not allowed by their souls to have similar transcendental experiences as the great philosopher made them during his lifetime and described them in detail in his Enneads.
