Yaldabaoth, Ialdabaoth, Samakel, etc.

So I’m reading the homestuck update and I see that Mr. Hussie is a fan of Sethian gnosticism. I’m sure a few fans picked this up who were well versed in esoteric and mystic literature, but I have a feeling that a large majority of the fanbase has not read neither the Secret Book of John nor The Reality of the Rulers.

It’s cute seeing some of the theories in tumblr’s upd8 tag tho.

All is gone, damage done. The edge of sanity we tread on, bleeding still… All is gone, damage done. The price of infamy we paid full, all is will.
—  Epitaph (by Sethian)
Sethian - Too Far Gone
Full song lyrics: Sethian - Too Far Gone

I’m not the one to show you the way
I’m not worth shedding a tear
These arms will never give you what you’re longing for:
There’s too many years between us
There lies an ocean of pain
Dark roads I hope you’ll never have to walk
I’m Too Far Gone
These stories have no happy endings
So turn away

Full song lyrics: Sethian - Too Far Gone

Sethian - Heavens May Fall
Full song lyrics: Sethian - Heavens May Fall

Down where air stands still tonight
Where nothing matters anymore
Cold fingers trace the road to the ends of this earth
Drown my sorrows with the past
Forget all that is gone
Your empty words hold nothing more for me:
This is an endless journey
Going nowhere fast
A sanctuary for my restless heart…

Full song lyrics: Sethian - Heavens May Fall
