We claim to strive toward higher ends, and yet we do so through the blood of anyone in our way. You’ll also hear that one side or another is the only true Path, the only real Way, the only reliable guide along that Fragile Path. And I tell you this: They’re ALL full of shit.

Gnosticism More of a belief system than a specific practice, Gnosticism refers to an overall view that the Creation we perceive as reality is actually the construct of some corrupt or malevolent force.
To escape the prison of this fallen reality, a Gnostic seeks wisdom and knowledge (gnosis) that will lead to eventual transcendence. This concept of an inferior Creation ruled over by malignant “alien forces” or a “lord of this world” can be found everywhere from The Matrix or David Icke’s “reptilian” conspiracy theories to many forms of Christianity or the more dour strains of pre-Christian Pagan belief. Certain approaches to Buddhism or Hinduism could be considered Gnostic even though that word rarely gets used in reference to those faiths.
