“The world is not prepared yet to understand the philosophy of Occult Sciences – let them assure themselves first of all that there are beings in an invisible world, whether ‘Spirits’ of the dead or Elementals; and that there are hidden powers in man, which are capable of making a God of him on earth.” ~ H. P. Blavatsky

The Gnostic Goddess Ariadne was the daughter of the famous Law Giver and King of Crete, Minos and her Grandfather was the God Zeus. She was also known by the names of Gnosis, Gnosias, and CreUSA (U.S.A.) which all signify her hometown of Knossos, AKA the City of Gnosis on the ancient Holy Island of Crete in the Mediterranean Sea.
Ariadne was immortalized in the halls of Gnosis and Freemasonry for helping her lover, Theseus who was the mythical founder-king of Athens to conquer the Minotaur and deliver him out of the Labyrinth by the means of a Thread. For doing so, she was also known as the “Mistress of the Labyrinth“, As noted on the Linear B inscription from Knossos, “to all the gods, honey… to the mistress of the labyrinth honey.” (more…)
“If you comprehend the darkness, it seizes you. It comes over you like the night with black shadows and countless shimmering stars. Silence and peace come over you if you begin to comprehend the darkness. Only he who does not comprehend the darkness fears the night.
Through comprehending the dark, the nocturnal, the abyssal in you, you become utterly simple. And you prepare to sleep through the millennia like everyone else, and you sleep down into the womb of the millennia, and your walls resound with ancient temple chants. Since the simple is what always was. Peace and blue night spread over you while you dream in the grave of the millennia.” ~ Carl G. Jung

They also signify the power in our minds found through our hippocampus in which we form all memories and regulate emotions.

Powerful rulers and law makers such as Moses, Pharaoh Seti and Alexander the Great had also proudly worn the horns of Gnosis.” – Moe the Gnostic Warrior

“Now the Phoenicians who came with Cadmus, and to whom the Gephyraei belonged, introduced into Greece upon their arrival a great variety of arts, among the rest that of writing, whereof the Greeks till then had, as I think, been ignorant. And originally they shaped their letters exactly like all the other Phoenicians, but afterwards, in course of time, they changed by degrees their language, and together with it the form likewise of their characters.”
