Everything You Need to Know but Have Never Been Told – Insights from the Ancient Nag Hammadi Library

A few years ago, I came across a treasure trove of ancient information found in a sealed jar in 1945 near the town of Nag Hammadi about 75-80 miles north of Luxor on the banks of the River Nile in Egypt. They are known as the Nag Hammadi Library, texts or scriptures and thanks to them other major pieces in the puzzle were revealed and my already developing conclusions confirmed.

The Nag Hammadi find included 13 leatherbound papyrus codices (manuscripts) and more than 50 texts written in Coptic Egyptian which were the work – with other ancient influences – of a people known as Gnostics. They were not a racial group so much as a way of perceiving reality under the heading of Gnosticism. This comes from the term gnosis or knowledge in the context of spiritual knowledge and awareness of reality as it really is. Gnosis is a Greek word that translates as secret knowledge, and Gnostic means ‘learned’. We have the saying in English about ‘using your nous’ or using your head/brain/intelligence; but to Gnostics spiritual awakening or ‘salvation’ could only be attained by expanding awareness beyond what they called nous and into pneuma (Infinite Self).

​Humanity’s version of the intellect on which the whole crazy world is based is actually a shockingly low level of awareness which is lauded and feted as the fountain of knowledge. It’s more like a spout of ignorance. Gnostics were active in many locations and were targeted mercilessly by the Roman Church which felt severely threatened by the way the foundation of its own belief system was being turned on its head. What the Roman Church saw as its all-powerful God to be worshipped without question the Gnostics believed was the source of evil that created the material world – in my terms the ‘material’ world of the digital, holographic computer-like simulation.  Gnostics could see through the illusion of ‘matter’ and I have no doubt they were helped in that understanding by the use of psychoactive potions that took them ‘out there’.

The Royal or Great Library of Alexandria in Egypt with its amazing collection of ancient knowledge and history was dominated by Gnostic thought. An estimated nearly half a million scrolls, manuscripts and documents were gathered from many locations including Assyria, Greece, Persia and India, as well as Egypt. Those with more expanded awareness were attracted to this oasis of open-mindedness and among them was a woman called Hypatia (about 350- 415AD).

​She was an Athens-educated mathematician, astronomer and philosopher who taught the work of Greek philosophers Plato and Aristotle and was head of the Platonist school at Alexandria. One of her reported quotes confirms her openness of mind:

‘Reserve your right to think, for even to think wrongly is better than not to think at all.’

Many insights about reality were inspired by such a haven of freethought thousands of years before science’ allegedly discovered them for the first time. This included the understanding that the Earth goes around the Sun 2,000 years before it was established by the Polish mathematician and astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus.

How so much more enlightened humanity would be had the Gnostics and other open-minded scholars been left unmolested to go about their quest for discovery. Alas, that was not to be. The unfettered, uncensored, free-thinking pursuit of knowledge was bound to twist the knickers of the Roman Church tyranny and in 415AD a mob of bewildered suckers led by Cyril, Patriarch of Alexandria, attacked and essentially destroyed the Royal Library as it had been before. Hypatia was hacked to death.

The Library’s contents were lost in stages to a combination of fire and theft, and much of what was taken will be in the vaults of the Vatican to this day. Cyril was made a saint as with a long list of Roman Church mass murderers and crooks before and since. The attack that killed Hypatia fits with the estimated age of the Nag Hammadi manuscripts.

They are believed to date from between 350-400AD although it is said they are likely to be copies of earlier Greek versions dating to perhaps 120-150AD or earlier. Centuries after the assault on the Gnostics of Alexandria came the campaign against the Gnostic Cathars in southern France which ended with them being burned at the stake after the siege of the Castle of Montségur in 1244.

Gnostic information has always terrified the Church and for good reason, as we are about to see. It was believed that the details of Gnostic belief had been lost thanks to the efforts of Rome, but then Nag Hammadi changed the game. A major point about these documents is that because they were hidden for so long they have not been twisted and tampered with like their religious counterparts to suit the authorities of the ‘time’. What the writers believed, the texts still say.

The Gnostic All That Is

Nag Hammadi manuscripts reveal why the Church quivered like a jelly at the Gnostic explanation of the world. I was often amazed reading them to see how themes, foundations and much detail synced with my own conclusions reached before I had ever heard of them. They speak of the ‘Father’ (Infinite Awareness, All-Possibility, All-Potential) and make the distinction between nous (mind) and pneuma (Infinite Self). An untitled text in the Nag Hammadi Bruce Codex says that ‘The All’ (all awareness, all that exists) is contained within the ‘Father’:

He is an incomprehensible one, but it is he who comprehends All. He receives them to himself. And nothing exists outside of him. But All exist within him. And he is boundary to them all, as he encloses them all, and they are all within him. It is he who is Father of the aeons, existing before them all. There is no place outside of him.

This is what I call the All That Is or Infinite Awareness in awareness of itself – ‘the force that moves all things’. The Infinite is not even a form of energy, but pure awareness, a state of Isness. Energy comes from its imagination. You can appreciate why Gnostics would use the term Father to symbolise the concept for people, but now in the era of quantum physics and computerisation we can use modern analogies.

​Father symbolism was encompassed by the Bible and Church and ‘he’ was transformed into a bloke on a throne. The word ‘aeons’ would be considered today to mean a long period of time, but to Gnostics aeons referred to what we might call bands of perception, reality and potential. Dictionaries define this meaning of aeon as ‘a power existing from eternity; an emanation or phase of the supreme deity’. Gnostic texts refer to the ‘Upper Aeons’ and ‘Lower Aeons’ in very different terms and they say that between the two is a curtain, veil or boundary. Upper Aeons are said to emanate directly from the unity of ‘The One’ – All That Is in awareness of itself – and can be symbolised as concentric circles expressing the Oneness of their Creator or Emanater. There is no separation or sense of it.

Upper Aeons are described by Gnostics as ‘The Silence’, ‘the silent Silence’, ‘the living Silence’, with its ‘Watery Light’. This is not the same as the light that we perceive in our reality which is a trap that can be likened to energetic flypaper; but that’s for later. Water is often used in the texts to symbolise the Upper Aeon realm of Oneness as in ‘… the waters which re above’, ‘… the waters which are above matter’ and ‘… the Aeons in the Living Water’. Upper Aeons are a reality (state of being) with no time or space. ‘Since the emanations are limitless and immeasurable’, as one text says, there can be no time or space. Upper Aeons are pure consciousness or awareness. They are also called Pleroma or ‘the totality’, ‘the fullness’ and the ‘perfection’ of ‘emanations of the Father’.

​The Nag Hammadi Gospel of Truth says: ‘Therefore, all the emanations of the Father are pleromas, and the root of all his emanations is in the one who made them all grow up in himself.’ Upper Aeons are further described as the ‘Treasure-House’, ‘Store-House’, ‘Dwelling-Place’ and ‘Kingless Realm’. A text entitled the Tripartite Tractate says:

The emanation of the Totalities, which exist from the one who exists, did not occur according to a separation from one another, as something cast off from the one who begets them. Rather, their begetting is like a process of extension, as the Father extends himself to those whom he loves, so that those who have come forth from him might become him as well.

The creations (extensions/emanations) of Infinite Awareness in awareness of itself can be symbolised as the manifestations of Thought, but I prefer the term ‘creative imagination’. This describes what the Gnostics called the Upper Aeons – the realm of Infinite Imagination and therefore All-Possibility, All-Potential. Gnostics symbolised Infinite Imagination as the ‘Father’ and ‘The Thought’ as the Mother. They said the interaction of the two produced a third force or imagined creation/extension/reflection of itself which was symbolised as the Son.

A text entitled Apocryphon of John (‘Secret Writing’ of John) describes this concept:

For it is he who looks at himself [saw his reflection] in his light which surrounds him, namely the spring of the water of life. And it is he … who gazes upon his image which he sees in the spring of the Spirit. It is he who puts his desire [intent] in his water-light which is in the spring of the pure light-water which surrounds him.

And his thought performed a deed and she [the ‘Mother’] came forth, namely she who had appeared before him [his image/imagination] in the shine of his light. [She] came forth from his mind … This is the first thought, his image.

From here what we call ‘Creation’ emerged from the imaginations of Infinite Awareness and its creations which are extensions of the same Infinite Awareness. Gnostic texts describe how the act of naming the creations of Infinite Imagination brings them into being. This is from the Gospel of Truth:

All the spaces are his emanations. They have known that they came forth from him, like children who are from a grown man. They knew that they had not yet received form, nor yet received a name, each one of which the Father begets …But the Father is perfect, knowing every space within him. If he wishes, he manifests whomever he wishes, by giving him form and giving him a name, and he gives a name to him, and brings it about that those come into existence.Upper Aeons are the realm of the ultimate ‘Creator’, or creative force/imagination, and it begs a question: If that is the case why is life so unpleasant – even shockingly bad – for so many in our reality? There is an answer to that.

Lord Jacob Rothschild Issues Warning: The New World Order is in Jeopardy

Over the past three years, an unexpected voice of caution has emerged from one of the most legendary families in finance: Lord Jacob Rothschild.


Lord Jacob Rothschild

Readers may recall that as part of the RIT Capital Partners 2014 annual report commentary, the scion of Rothschild family warned that “the geopolitical situation is most dangerous since WWII.” One year later, Jacob Rothschild again warned about the outcome of “what is surely the greatest experiment in monetary policy in the history of the world“, and then again in August 2017 he cautioned that “share prices have in many cases risen to unprecedented levels at a time when economic growth is by no means assured.”

Little did he know that they were only going to keep rising, but related to that, he also made another warning which the market has so far blissfully ignored:

The period of monetary accommodation may well be coming to an end. Geopolitical problems remain widespread and are proving increasingly difficult to resolve.

Fast forward to today when in the latest half-year commentary from RIT Capital Partners, Lord Rothschild has made his latest warning to date, this time focusing on the global economic system that was established after WWII, and which he believes is now in jeopardy.

The billionaire banker pointed to the US-China trade war and the Eurozone crisis as the key problems putting economic order at risk, and the lack of a “common approach” – a reference to the gradual unwind of globalization in the wake of President Trump – that has made “co-operation today much more difficult”:

In 9/11 and in the 2008 financial crisis, the powers of the world worked together with a common approach. Co-operation today is proving much more difficult. This puts at risk the post-war economic and security order.”

It wasn’t clear if he was referring to the post-war fiat standard that emerged once FDR devalued the dollar relative to gold, and then fixed a price for the yellow metal, a tenuous link that was subsequently destroyed by Nixon who finally took the US off the gold standard, or the primacy of the dollar which emerged as the world’s reserve currency after the end of WWII, but whenever one of the people who profited handsomely from the “post war world order” warns it may be on its last legs, it may be time to worry.

With global risks growing, how is Rothschild positioned? The Lord writes that “in the circumstances our policy is to maintain our limited exposure to quoted equities and to enter into new commitments with great caution” and indeed, in the first half, RIT had a net quoted equity exposure of only 47%, historically low. The reason: the iconic banking family is concerned that the 10-year bullish cycle and market rally could finally be ending.

The cycle is in its tenth positive year, the longest on record. We are now seeing some areas of weaker growth emerge; indeed the IMF has recently predicted some slowdown.

While Rothschild noted that “many of the world’s economies have enjoyed a broad-based acceleration not seen since the aftermath of the financial crisis of 2008, with as many as 120 countries seeing stronger growth last year” he also cautioned that “we continue to believe that this is not an appropriate time to add to risk. Current stock market valuations remain high by historical standards, inflated by years of low interest rates and the policy of quantitative easing which is now coming to an end.

One potential risk is Europe, where debt levels have reached “potentially destructive levels”:

The problems confronting the Eurozone are of concern – both political and economic – given the potentially destructive levels of debt in a number of countries.

There is also the threat that the global trade war escalates substantially from here, as Chinese stocks have learned the hard way:

The likelihood of trade wars has increased tension and the impact on equities has been marked, for example by early July the Shanghai Composite Index had dropped some 22% from its peak in January.

Rothschild also echoed the recent warning from the head of the Indian Central Bank, warning that the shrinking of global dollar liquidity is hurting emerging markets:

Problems are likely to continue in emerging markets, compounded by rising interest rates and the US Fed’s monetary policy which has drained global dollar liquidity. We have already seen the impact on the Turkish and Argentinian currencies.

Finally, Rothschild remains understandably “concerned about geo-political problems including Brexit, North Korea and the Middle East, at a time when populism is spreading globally.

* * *

Rothschild continued the shift away from US capital markets exposure announced two years ago, noting that his “exposure to absolute return and credit assets continued to generate steady returns and on currencies, the net asset value benefited from the strengthened US Dollar.”

Compare the collapse in the fund’s USD exposure, which as of June 30 was only 29%, to the 62% as recently as December 31, 2016.

Not surprisingly, RIT’s investment portfolio continues do quite well, and has now returned over 2,400% since inception.

Below is a snapshot of where every hedge fund wants to end up: the Rothschild investment portfolio:

Finally, for all those wondering where the Rothschild family fortune is hiding, here is the answer

MUST SEE!!! This video is blocked in almost every country (2018-2019)…CONFIRM NOT FOR PUBLIC

There are now five different lines of observational evidence pointing to the existence of Planet Nine,” said Konstantin Batygin, a planetary astrophysicist at Caltech in Pasadena.

Some of these clues relate to the gravitational tug of Planet Nine, which appears to be disturbing the distant Kuiper Belt, which is made up of icy objects and stretches from Neptune out into deep space.

Its believed Planet Nine is a “super-Earth”, the name for a type of large world which appears to be very common in the universe.

Doom-mongers have consistently claimed that a hidden world called Nibiru will crash into Earth.

Nasa has denied this theory, previously writing: “The planet in question, Niburu, doesn’t exist, so there will be no collision.

“The story of Niburu has been around for years (as has the ‘days of darkness’ tale) and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables.”

However, it’s feared Planet Nine will eventually destroy the solar system by causing a devastating “death dance”.

It could one day hurtle through our solar system, sending planets “pinballing” into outer space or plunging into the Sun.

Creating Genetically Modified Babies Is “Morally Permissible,” Says Ethics Committee

ETHICALLY ACCEPTABLE. We may have just moved one step closer to designer babies. On Tuesday, the Nuffield Council on Bioethics (NCB), an independent U.K.-based organization that analyzes and reports on ethical issues in biology and medicine, released a report focused on the social and ethical issues surrounding human genome editing and reproduction.

According to the report, editing human embryos, sperm, or eggs is “morally permissible” as long as the edit doesn’t jeopardize the welfare of the future person (the one born from the edited embryo) or “increase disadvantage, discrimination, or division in society.”

PROCEED WITH CAUTION. The NCB report doesn’t say we should only make edits to embryos for therapeutic reasons, meaning changes for cosmetic reasons are still on the table, ethically speaking. However, by no means does the report suggest we jump right into editing human embryos.

Before we get to that point, we must conduct further research to establish safety standards, according to the report. We’ll also need to publicly debate the use of the technology and consider its possible implications. Additionally, we’ll need to assess any potential risks to individuals, groups, or society in general, and figure out a system for monitoring and addressing any unforeseen adverse affects as they may crop up.

After all that, gene-editing in humans will still need to be closely regulated by government agencies, and we’ll want to start by using it only in closely monitored clinical studies, says the NCB.

AN INFLUENTIAL VOICE. The NCB can’t actually write laws or establish any standards for the use of gene-editing in humans. However, the Council’s recommendations do carry some weight, with the BBC referring to the organization as “influential.”

So, while it may still be years before anyone gives birth to a “designer baby,” the mere fact that editing human embryos is getting the ethical green light from the NCB is a promising sign for anyone eager for the day gene-editing lets them create the offspring of their dreams.
