Department of Mysteries

"There is an ancient Earthling myth in which the sustaining force of Universe... God as it is oftentimes referred to in the West... manifests all that is within Universe while dreaming.
As God dreams... the dream transforms into our cosmos, projecting countless billions of tiny holographic specks of itself to materialize the physical realm.
God assumes the roles of galaxies, stars, planets… the myriad creatures of Universe and thus becomes completely immersed in strange and wonderful adventures,
some of which are terrible and frightening.

Since God is all there is within & without Universe and since there is no “other” in which to play with, God plays a cosmic game of “hide & seek” with itself.
Hence these adventures we call life, take the form of a great game or play within God’s dream.

In the heat of game-play within our cosmic RPG, God temporarily forgets its true nature of oneness. This forget-fulness seems to span the entire cycle of Universe.
Eventually, God awakens from the many dreams and fantasies and remembers its true identity, the one and eternal Self of the cosmos who is never born and never dies.
At this moment, all that is… returns to the source. Thus Universe goes round…
now advancing… now receding… for eternity."

- the Tek-Gnostics Heresies

Welcome, intrepid seeker of the esoteric... having safely navigated the perils of cyberspace, you may find respite within the Tek-GNOSTICS "Department of Mysteries." Here the art of Mind Magick is explored to it's fullest. Herein we pursue a school of thought based upon Gnosis... the knowledge of transcendence arrived at by way of inner, intuitive means. From this sanctuary of learning,  we embark upon the autonomous path of  insight, inspiration and knowledge.

Tekgnosticism relies upon intellectual and spiritual experience... a balance of the heart and mind. It pertains to a specific illuminative understanding that expresses itself best through the medium of myth. The truths embodied in these myths are of a more personal nature than the dogmas of theology or the statements of philosophy. In this way, the myth acts as a parable or metaphor, illustrating through the actions of the myth, complex insights.

The tekgnostic, or one who travels the tekgnostic path, can be described as a practitioner of "Amateur Mysticism" as defined from the French: amateur or lover of ...Mysticism. In their pursuit, the amateur's strength lies in enthusiasm, inspiration and true original thinking. This brings creativity, spontaneity, a fresh perspective and a real passion to the tekgnostic path.

The great mythologies of the past tend to repeat themselves over the eons. They re-calibrate... modernize... to fit current cultural understanding. Thus the ancient Gods give way to newer myths such as monotheism or science or even alien intelligences, as humanity's view of universe evolves. Certain contemporary mythologies seem to have devolved into a dogmatic, simplistic eschatological rendering of end-times prophecy. Specifically, the Abrahamic Desert Religions were (and are) obsessed with imagery of Armageddon... righteous battles, catastrophe and final judgment. Their more mystical (and suppressed) factions, such as the Sufis and especially the Gnostics, foretold of an Apocalypse (from the Greek: apokálypsis) which literally
translates as "a lifting of the veil" or revelation... a steady increase in light... a change in focus from folly to wisdom.

So it is with Tek-Gnostics mythology. We seek to explore our world in pursuit of gnosis... a knowledge that does not come from mere book learning, but from an inspirational flash of insight. Book learning and study is the preparation... the homework, if you will. Gnosis is the moment when the hard work of study pays off... the spark of epiphany that takes one to a deeper level of understanding. This light-bulb moment is the lifting of the veil, the increase of light that the ancient mystics spoke of.

The Tek-Gnostics or experiential path is self-verifying in the sense that it unfolds within as it unfolds without. This is the fundamental tekgnostic relationship: self and matrix… observer and observed… spirit and universe. The genesis of infinite universe, or that which cannot be named, is perfect. The fabric of our universe or Matrix as it is referred to in the ancient Tek-Gnostics codex, is necessarily perfect. This qualifier exemplifies the essential Gnostic principle that although universe was created out of perfection, the dualistic, materialistic universe we live in is not perfect.

More importantly, the "powers that be" that are instrumental in shaping our world are not perfect. This is an essential theme in Gnostic thought. The gods must be crazy. We will explore this concept in greater detail elsewhere. For now, suffice it to say that the intention of Tek-Gnostics is to provide a system of understanding in which self-verification of perceived reality is a fundamental component. Individual and universe form the partnership that co-experience human existence. This partnership is communicated through synchronistic means, relying on certain mythic commonalities.

This universal partnership is experienced in multiple spheres, multiple magnitudes of scale. In the parlance of the Hermetic tradition: “as above, so below.” The mythology here indicating that the structure of universe, as a macrocosm, is similar to the structure of the human body, as a microcosm... the workings of the solar system are likened to the workings of the molecule... wheels within wheels.

In keeping with the fifth tenet of the Tek-Gnostics Eight-Fold Path... "Nothing is so sacred that it cannot be made fun of" ...we intend to proceed with a sense of adventure, absurdity and irreverence. We acknowledge the essential nature of universe as a grand cosmic joke... that universe has a wicked sense of humor. And why should it not be so? We ought to enjoy our journey of discovery. Find below the gateway to the Tek-Gnostics mysteries. May our collection of Tantras and Yogas serve you well, dear intrepid traveler...
