Cat memes and Gnostic dreams. I didn't have time to mention the archons. The Demiurge created seven of them. Just as the aeons personify positive attributes, so too do the archons personify negative ones. Think the seven deadly sins.

Jesus said, "The heavens and the earth will be rolled up in your presence, and the one who lives from the Living One will not see death." Does not Jesus say, "He who finds himself is greater than the world"? - The Gospel of Thomas, Saying 111
