I remember reading an article on this website that stated the gnostic students must never attend cinemas for they are 'places of spiritual degeneracy' or something to this effect. I do not recall the wording however cinemas were advised against. I struggle to see what the issue with a big screen is? Is it a matter of time wasting or something more profound and sinister like subliminal messaging in movies?

The gnostic tradition does not "prohibit" anyone from doing anything, since it is black magic to coerce others. You are free to do whatever you wish.

However, if you wish to liberate your consciousness from suffering, then it is wise to consider the nourishment you give to your consciousness. Just as we need to eat and drink the healthiest food, everything we take in through our senses is also food, but for the consciousness.

We must be careful of the nourishment that the mind receives, careful with newspapers, television, and movies [add to this all modern entertainment: games, internet, etc]. We must verbally and mentally transmute the seed with sepulchral offerings. In other words, we must not nourish ourselves with refuse, because this is worthless. Bad literature, bad movies, bad television, bad words, are rotten for the mind.

Subliminal images and exploits of black magic are abundant within the atmosphere of theaters, since the Black Lodge has them under its control. For instance, spectators contemplate actors performing pornographic scenes or listen to words with double or malevolent meaning. These tenebrous elements of depraved enjoyment hurt the retina and the ear and even penetrate the mind. Then, in the Mental Plane, the psychological “I” of every person intervenes by creating mental living effigies that become absolute replicas of the stage images, which captivated the retina and the ear of the spectator. These effigies are endowed with consciousness and become true “mental demons” which (during the hours of normal sleep) fornicate several times with the spectator’s mind. Obviously, this causes nocturnal pollutions (wet dreams).
Cinemas are worse because within them these depraved elements are more abundant due to the extremely noxious popularity that film makers have impressed on their movies. Disciples should abstain from going to movie theaters.
Unfortunately, in this day and age, theaters and cinemas with their undercover corruption or evident practices of black magic are centers (because of their audacity towards perversion) that have been transformed into explicit and unmistakable temples of black magic, which are unhealthy to the mental state of people.
Even worse conclusions or allegations (yet precise and woeful) can be aimed at night clubs which have inflicted so much evil onto the morality of today’s youth.


In movie theaters, dens of black magic where degenerate movies are shown, larvae adhere to those who frequent these places.


The agents of crime propagate their criminal ideas through television and cinema. Yes, on a daily basis, on the screens of televisions and cinemas, as well as through magazines, etc.—using infantile cartoons and caricatures —new generations of children receive a very strong dose of poisonous information about murders, shootings, terrible crimes, etc.
Television can no longer broadcast without displaying words filled with hatred, bullets, and perversity. The governments of the Earth are not doing anything against this propagation of crime.
This is how the minds of children and youngsters are now guided by the agents of crime along the path of delinquency.
This idea of killing is already so propagated, so diffused via the cinema, tales, etc., that it has become completely familiar to all the world. The rebels of this new generation have been educated for crime, they kill for the pleasure of killing, they delight in watching others dying. Yes, they have learned all of this on television, at the cinema, in novels, comics, and magazines.

Doesnt all this apply to movies and tv shows in general? So cinemas can be just as bad as phones and conouters since u can watch movies on there also? So does this mean video games and tv shows are prohibited in the gnostic tradition due to the subliminal messages of violence and sex? So for example, watching even game of thrones is discouraged? Or playing a standard rpg street fighter game?
