The Precious Opportunity to Avoid Suffering

The Pistis Sophia

Jesus hitherto instructeth his disciples only up to the regions of the First Mystery

It came to pass, when Jesus had risen from the dead, that he passed eleven years discoursing with his disciples, and instructing them only up to the regions of the First Commandment and up to the regions of the First Mystery, that within the Veil, within the First Commandment, which is the four and twentieth mystery without and below - those (four and twenty) which are in the second space of the First Mystery which is before all mysteries, the Father in the form of a dove.”

“Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.” - The Pistis Sophia Unveiled by Samael Aun Weor

The Pistis Sophia must be explained esoterically. Only those who have lived it can explain the esoteric paragraphs of The Pistis Sophia, because that is not a matter of mere projections of the intellect. Since I have lived all this, it is feasible for me, then, to explain each paragraph of the doctrine of the beloved one, contained in The Pistis Sophia.

The original Pistis Sophia is in Coptic; it has been poured into some other languages ​​and soon we will have it in Spanish... year (1978), we will be able to have that book unveiled. Even if it is at the end of the year.

Student: Venerable master, there is a Spanish version of The Pistis Sophia, which was released in Spain; and there is a brother, a Gnostic student who knows a lot of English and can read it and translate it like that, immediately...

Samael Aun Weor: That's perfectly fine, and it's circulating in all the countries of Europe, right? But it doesn't help people.

Student: That's right...

Samael Aun Weor: Because if it is not unveiled, it is as if (instead of English) Chinese were being spoken here in America. Nobody would understand.

Student: Master, if this brother can be of any help to you so that he can help you faster with the translation?...

Samael Aun Weor: It's not necessary...'s going to start... ...and deliver it literally like this, the mere translation, nobody understands that. The secret doctrine of the savior of the world is in code and only he who understands the mysteries understands it; and only the one who has lived them and is living them understands the mysteries.

Student: There is a book that was released in Venezuela, which is the "Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ", this is how it is called. But it is as you say: “it is not revealed”. But it is understood that many parts of the Gnostic teachings are contained there but veiled.

Samael Aun Weor: Well, it's worthless to the wretched people. We need to deliver to humanity The Pistis Sophia duly unveiled and explained, the secret doctrine of the Nazarene, the secret volumes of the Christ. In this way, humanity will receive the Christic gospel, the complete doctrine, which was kept in secret for 20 centuries.


So indeed, after all this, the final catastrophes will come. Because the gospel has to be preached first... ...then catastrophes. Because you must know that, exactly, the times of the end have arrived!...

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” – Matthew 24: 14

The one that has always produced world catastrophes through the centuries has always been the planet Hercolubus. That's a giant world, maybe six times bigger than Jupiter, and Jupiter is hundreds of times bigger than Earth.

When Hercolubus arrived at the end of the Lemurian civilization, it produced great earthquakes, it drew the fire of the volcanoes to the surface; that continent sank, little by little, within the raging waves of the Pacific Ocean.

When Hercolubus arrived at the end of the Atlantean civilization, originated the revolution of the axes of the Earth; the seas shifted, and all humanity was submerged in the waters along with its continent.

Now, Hercolubus is in sight again. From all the observatories of the world it is being seen. Scientists have baptized it with the name of "Barnard"; anyway, they can give it whatever name they want. We, esoterically, know it by the name of "Hercolubus"; and it's already, I repeat, in sight...

As it gets closer, it produces different telluric effects on our globe. When it gets closer, it will begin to magnetically attract the liquid fire that is inside the planet Earth. Already very close, it will attract, it will magnetically pull that fire; it is even possible that part of our geological crust could explode. Then, that fire will burn everything that has life. Rivers of fire will run everywhere! The liquid fire from inside the Earth will destroy this entire civilization. Nothing will be left, and it will end of all humanity!...

Student: Master, that same fire is the magma of the volcanoes, what the volcanoes vomit, right?

Samael Aun Weor: It is the same fire of the volcanoes...

Student: Lava?

Samael Aun Weor: Lava indeed, therefore, fire is part of its substances, of its flammable materials that spring from the interior of the world. But indeed, all this is produced by fire; and fire comes out from within the Earth. And that fire will jump to the surface and "the Earth and all the works that are therein, will be burned up"; everything will burn.

But at the maximum approach it will bring... ...already at the maximum, there will be a revolution of the Earth's axes. The maximum approach is terrible, since it is such an enormous mass, when it passes close it turns..., that is, it makes a mess: the poles become the equator and the equator the poles; the waters change beds, and the total submersion of the current inhabited continents takes place.

Astronomers know this. The map that we have in the association, here in our gnostic studies, we found it in a newspaper library, or one of ours found it in a newspaper library, here in Mexico City. So those maps... a matter that could already be called "official".

If it is not publicized, it is due to government censorship, which prohibits the formation of collective psychoses in the cities. Astronomers have been forced to keep quiet. But there is no observatory in the world where what is going to happen is not known: in all the observatories there is already a map of the catastrophe, it is a completely official matter; and the governments know it, nobody ignores it anymore.

It is not publicized to avoid collective psychosis, governments intervene, censor.

But it's a fact: Hercolubus is in sight of all the observatories in the world! It is approaching at a fantastic speed, heading for the Earth...

Student: Venerable master, and esoterically, in what measure of time, more or less, will these approaches take place?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, the calculations vary a lot; there is still no absolute precision on that. But Michael de Nostradamus assures that it is in 1999, the maximum approach of Hercolubus...

Student: In 1999, "in the seventh month," he said...

Samael Aun Weor: Yes, that's what he said, "in the seventh month."

Student: There's another book where he says it's in 1988...

Samael Aun Weor: I know the “centuries” of Nostradamus, completely, I know them by heart, and I have never seen it in 1978...

Student: No, in 1988...

Samael Aun Weor: Not in '88, not in '98, but in 1999...

Student: Although in another book it says it's the 2500...

Samael Aun Weor: Well, the 2500 is symbolic, because if we add 2 + 5, we have 7.  And 7 is the seventh (month or seventh) seal of the revelation of Saint John. Humanity has torn six seals; when the seventh is torn, comes the great catastrophe. Thus, six have already been torn, only the last one is missing and the catastrophe will come.

The Four Ages

Student: Master, is that what the gospel means when it says, “time, times, and half a time." That is, one (1) and one (1): two, and half 1/2: five?

Samael Aun Weor: No, it's not that, what happens is that the solar system travels around the zodiac; that's the sidereal year. Something similar happens with the terrestrial year: the Earth travels around the Sun and returns to its starting point. And that forms the Earth year of 365 days and fractions of minutes and seconds. As for the sidereal year, it is different: the voyage is no longer around the Sun, it is the solar system that travels around the zodiacal belt, in a term of about 25,968 years, more or less; an average, because it is difficult in this, the exact calculations.

But it does happen that during the sidereal year there are four seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter. A race lasts no longer than the journey of the solar system around the zodiacal belt.

This journey we are on was initiated after the universal flood, under the regency of the Aquarian constellation. And the solar system already made a complete turn around the zodiacal belt, and it's back in Aquarius.

So, the sidereal year is ending. We are at the end, already practically; there are only a few degrees left and the catastrophe is coming. Every sidereal year ends with a catastrophe. At the end of every sidereal year, Hercolubus returns. And it marks the end of the sidereal year.

Hercolubus is currently returning. It is already in view of all the telescopes in the world. And Michael de Nostradamus says that soon, it will be visible at midday. So, the arrival of that "terrible king" that Nostradamus advocates or prophesied, is a fact!

Now, a race does not last longer, I repeat, than the duration of a sidereal year, the duration of a journey of the solar system around the zodiacal belt; that's how long a race lasts.

And it is a sidereal year, since it has four seasons: spring (the golden age). Summer (the silver age). Autumn (the copper age). Winter (the iron age).

In the golden age everything is harmony, peace and perfection. No one lives who has an ego. In the golden age, people who have egos are not given a body. In the silver age, the splendors diminish slightly, but life is still beautiful. Borders and wars begin in the copper age; the ego develops again, humanity becomes evil. The iron age is the terrible winter (it is the age we are currently in), that of wickedness taken to the maximum. And then comes the catastrophe.

So right now, we are exactly at the end of the kali yuga, that is, the end of the iron age, of winter.

Obviously, Daniel the prophet spoke and said, "I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea." And then he saw four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another....

“The first,” he says, “was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the Earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.”

“And behold another beast, a second,” he said, “like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.”

He said, “After this I beheld and lo another (the third), like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.”

Then, he said: “After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast.”

The first is the golden age, the second the silver age, the third the copper age...

And the fourth – he said – was very different from the other beasts: dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things….” “….I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them.”

And power was given unto it to destroy the saints of the most high, and to cause tremendous harm everywhere...

“Until the Ancient of days came,” he says, “and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom....”

And Daniel asked him the truth of all this. So, he said to him, and made him to know the interpretation of the things.?" He replied: " until a time, and times, and half a time."... – Daniel 7: 2-7, 16

“A time”, the golden age; “times”, the silver and copper ages; “and half”, half of the iron age. We are currently in that, precisely. So, the end is for this time. We are in the middle of the iron age, almost at the end, more than a half. So, before, we have gone a little too far; We've almost gone a little too far.

Student: Venerable master, from all that has just been said, could we... ...over 94 years to this root race?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, any numerical calculation at this time is a bit daring, because, certainly, we could say that we only have 94 years left; another could say that there are less to go, but, exactly, the day and the hour there is only one who knows it, who is, precisely, the father of all lights. Because it is written:

“But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” – Mark 13: 32

What I can assure you is that we are at the beginning of the end. The catastrophe draws near.

Nostradamus says that in 1999 (28 = 10)... Well, that man has never been wrong... Alas! Better that all this be fulfilled at once. As is all this, may it be fulfilled, may the golden age come, which is what we are awaiting: The golden age.

Obviously, then, we all are forming the world salvation army. That army will have to be formed with people from all nations, peoples and languages; it's obvious.

The Future Age

But out of that very army will come a synthesis; and that synthesis or group... ...will be made up of men and women who have worked on themselves very intensively. That is to say, that they have been able to destroy, if not 100% of the ego, at least, at least, even 50%.

Because a person who has destroyed even 50% of the ego, is a person who already gives a lot of hope. That one has shown that one can work, and that one works on oneself. Obviously, such a select group will be taken out in its time and hour, in a concrete, practical manner.

And so, because with a group of advanced brothers from the Himalayas, we will work, well, as a team, taking from wherever we find those who have no ego, or who have at least dissolved 50%.

And groups will be organized that will go to a certain island in the Pacific. That is on the eve of the final catastrophe. These groups will form a single group, after all, that will live in a deserted place, in a place... the Pacific, when the catastrophe arrives, nothing will happen in that place.

And that group will stay there for a while. In those days, the entire Earth, after the great catastrophe, will be enveloped in fire and water vapor; it will have returned to the primitive original state of chaos. Humanity will have perished.

That select group that has worked on themselves, during that interval will dedicate themselves to finishing their work: to finish the eliminating their ego. And those who do not finish it will be separated, they will not be given a physical body; only those who finish the work will be given a body.

When new lands and new continents emerge from the bottom of the oceans, then, it will happen that this selected group will live there, and will serve as the nucleus for the future sixth root race; then the golden age will begin.

In the future sixth root race no one who has the ego, nor even 1% ego, will be admitted there, because someone who has some ego is enough to corrupt the golden age. A person with an ego destroys everything, harms others. Just as a rotten orange among a basket of good oranges contaminates the others, it damages them; thus, if someone with an ego were left in the golden age, that one would end the golden age.

Thus, in the golden age there will be an innocent humanity, devoid of ego; ruled by the solar dynasties; there will be unique peace and harmony; there will be no countries, no republics, nothing like that. The entire Earth will be one world, one country for all.

Student: Master, a question: is the formation of the ego a law, that all humanity falls, and the ego is formed? Or are there humanities that can pass without the fall from Eden?

Samael Aun Weor: No, it always happens, because in the golden age there is peace; in the silver age it decreases slightly... ...and the first symptoms of the ego begin to appear, albeit in a very residual manner; in the copper age the ego definitely arises; and in the iron age, the ego definitely rules...

Student: So, will the sixth root race be repeated, again, all this same drama?

Samael Aun Weor: It is the same process for any root race; the seasons always repeat themselves in all root races. It begins with a voyage of the solar system around the zodiac; and every root race ends with the journey of the solar system around the zodiacal belt.

When the journey of the Atlantean root race ended, that continent was submerged in the waters.

When the journey of the Lemurian root race ended, that continent was also submerged in the waters.

Sometimes the fire initiates the catastrophe, other times the water. In Lemurian fire started the catastrophe; in Atlantis it was water; now, it will be fire again, and everything that is currently here will be burned up. As it is written by Peter:

“But the Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat. The Earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” – 2 Peter 3: 10

In Atlantis I told this to the people, just as I am talking to you, and the people did not believe me, they laughed, they thought it was nonsense on my part. The same as now that I am speaking to you, currently. And I am sure that even here among you who are listening to me (who are apparently very devout), however, here is one of you who is not believing and there are others who are questioning it. And that's among this small group; now, think how it will be with humanity; how it will be with the millions of human beings...

Student: A question: those beings that will be saved when the catastrophe comes, will they be saved in alien cosmic ships?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, of course they will be! The extraterrestrial cosmic ships will collaborate, they will cooperate; but do not think that everything is going to be based on extraterrestrial cosmic ships, no. We will have to work very hard! Because the secret people will be removed from the smoke and flames, thanks to the cooperation of the brothers and sisters as a team, who are working. Among those I will be working as a team with many others.

So, we will have to remove them according to all normal, common and current laws; start even by helping them get a passport...

Student: A passport to go there to end the ego...

Student: No, but don't think...

Samael Aun Weor: We will have to travel normally, officially...

Student: Crossing borders and all that...

Student: Master, another question: when you said that you will be given a body again (the physical body), will it be the same as before, that is, the one you had, or in another way?

Samael Aun Weor: Listen, that doesn't matter! Right now, I'm wearing these pants and I feel happy, I could have some green ones or some red ones, or scarlet ones to make a fuss, but I'm happy anyway. Thus, the body is a body. Now you have that body, how do you feel with that vehicle?

Student: Well, I feel fine, at the moment...

Samael Aun Weor: Then they can give you another one and, what?

Student: It's the same...

Samael Aun Weor: It's the same. What matters is the work, right? That's what's interesting: work. And it is clear that the physical body will be given in the golden age, exclusively to people who do not have ego.

It would be enough to have even a percentage of 1% of ego, so that it would no longer be given a body. The golden age is very difficult...


William Blake Nebuchadnezzar Tate Britain

People who have ego will have to go through submerged devolution in the infernal worlds for the annihilation of the ego. Because if they weren't able to eliminate it by themselves, nature is very compassionate, she takes care of annihilating them down there; She does that hygiene service for them. She is in charge of making them devolve within the bowels of the Earth, to pass them through the second death, and leaves them without an ego.

When devoid of ego, they come to the surface to be part of the new humanity. Everything is so well done! For now, all the millions of human beings that populate the world are reaching the final cycle of existences, that is, the 108 existences. Because 108 lives are assigned to one in each cycle of manifestation. And most of them have already reached the 108 or are about to arrive. Almost everyone has already arrived. So obviously the cycle of manifestation ends for everyone currently living soul on Earth. Therefore, the arrival of cataclysms is normal; it is a favor that is being done to them: they can allow themselves the luxury of entering the bowels of the Earth to devolve in time, through many centuries.

Each one will suffer within the underground worlds, then, according to their own karma: some will suffer more than others; and some will last longer, living in the infernal worlds than others. It all depends on the debit and credit of each one. The law of karma is what regulates all these things.

But in the infernal worlds, finally, devolving, one passes through the second death. After the second death, that is, the death of the ego, the soul is free, to be! to come to the surface, in the light of the sun, and start new evolutionary stages.

Obviously, any new, evolutionary process always begins in the lowest step, which is the mineral kingdom; and it always continues with the plant, it continues with the animal, and finally, the state of "humanoid" that was once lost is reconquered...

Thus, all these millions who are now going to sink into the lakes of burning fire and brimstone, which is the second death, will perish in the bowels of the world; but the essence of each one of them, the soul, the immortal principle, will not perish, it will resurface after the second death: the Earth will vomit it, so that it restarts new evolutionary processes that go from the mineral to the man; That is the harsh reality of the facts...

And finally, that new humanity, purified, will be governed by the solar dynasties... ...the select people, that people will live happily, governed by the solar dynasties.

That, then, is the fate that awaits humanity. But I, as your friend, tell you very sincerely that you had better resolve to die [psychologically] by your own works, and not how nature kills you [your defects] down there. Down there things are terrible...

Within the entrails of the planet things are very hard; a very bitter life is lived there, more bitter than gall. Within there “weeping and gnashing of teeth” reigns. Each of the nine Dantean circles is one of frightening pain. Well, for some it is more than for others: for the neighbor's son, for example, who is not hurting anyone, because the pain will not be so much. For Pedro, Juan or Diego, Chucho, Jacinto or José, who was neither good nor bad, but simply a poor fool, there is really little that lives there. It disintegrates in a relatively short time; that's clear..., relatively short...

I know of one such case, of a subject x-x who was a bricklayer in the Middle Ages: he was neither good nor bad; a poor fool out there who worked making houses, making bricks with clay; and on Saturdays he went to get drunk with his friends, drinking plenty of wine. He wasn't bad, he wasn't good; he was a fool; that was all.

He entered the infernal worlds, but it did not last long: from the Middle Ages, in the Middle Ages; put him around in the twelfth century; he devolved within the bowels of the Earth, and he came out of the Earth recently. If he has left, he will have around... put two centuries or three. He was not wicked; his second death was swift.

He evolved, then, as an elemental, as a gnome, in the kingdom of the gnomes, after having come out of the bowels of the Earth, after the Earth vomited his soul out.

Later, he evolved into the plant and was a plant elemental that took shape starting with simple, humble little herbs; It was slowly evolving. Where it lasted the longest was in a bush, which lasted about half a century, somewhere. But he was happy as a plant elemental.

Later, he evolved into the animal kingdom. He began in rudimentary forms of organic life. Until finally...

Student: In a turtle?...

Samael Aun Weor: No, rather as a bird, as an animal like those from the trees. And as a bird he was evolving until I already meet him out there. He is a little parrot that is out there, he has not reached the human state yet...

Student: Ah, not yet, master! 

Samael Aun Weor: He is a little parrot; and I had that little parrot right here, that is why I am telling you this... of those many days it flew away, it flew away. Well, okay, good luck to him! Since I never took away his freedom, he left. Very well, God help him! Okay...

Student: Oh, and I thought he already had a body!

Samael Aun Weor: Ah, to become humanoid, no! That will not be for now, for this time. To get to have a human body he will be back in the golden age...

Student: And that didn't hurt anyone, what would it be like if he had? if he had been like us a hasnamussian!...

Samael Aun Weor: A hasnamussian! For example like a Hitler, or what about like a Mussolini?

Student: He as bricklayer did nothing more than "drinking", and come home drunk and nothing else...

Samael Aun Weor: Nobody hurt him; and he lasted a few centuries in the infernal worlds, because he was “very good”. He was neither good nor bad, right? But he was simply a fool who did neither good nor bad.

The Precious Opportunity

However (in his former cicle), when I studied the lives of that creature (the parrot), I found that he had had a very good chance in Persia. In Persia he had a female body and was born into a royal, aristocratic family. He was given the opportunity to pursue the priesthood; her relatives educated her as best as possible; the initiates tried to guide her through the priestly path, as a vestal from the temple of the blessed goddess Isis, or Astarte. Unfortunately, she did not feel the spiritual need, there was no true mystical inquietude in that essence. It was not a mature essence. Well, they decided to leave her, for peace... She married, she had several children; she disembodied; she continued taking increasingly devolving bodies (she did not evolve, but devolved), and in Europe she continued devolving until he became the said bricklayer. Later, having completed his cycle of manifestation, he entered the submerged devolution of the infernal worlds...

Student: In other words, who from the royal family came to be a bricklayer from then on?

Samael Aun Weor: Yes, through the centuries he was devolving, he did not evolve but devolved, he degenerated.

Student: That opportunity was given to him so that if he had taken the path of righteousness, then it would have been something else, right?

Samael Aun Weor: Of course! He would have risen to adepthood; he would have been different. And the human being is always given such a brilliant opportunity; and they rarely know how to take advantage of it, because that creature did not know how to take advantage of it.


Student: Do we have an opportunity like that by being in the gnostic movement?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, of course! At this moment you have a brilliant opportunity, where knowledge is being given to you, like this, revealed. If you want to become adepts, you will succeed. The knowledge is being given to you, like this: revealed! The frank and smooth keys to work at once on yourselves; but if you do not take advantage, well, then you will inevitably fail; but if you take advantage, then you will not fail. The interesting thing would be to take advantage and work on yourselves; that would be the main thing.

The Failures

Student: Master, why, even knowing and in the books being so clear, why do we find death so difficult? We say yes, but we fail, why? What is our problem?

Samael Aun Weor: I have seen that in South Americans, very especially; that's why I'm afraid we're going to get a big harvest of hasnamussen with double center of gravity, in the countries of Colombia and Venezuela.

If you observe among those countries, there is among the brothers and sisters a good yearning to receive initiations, degrees, to develop powers, etc., but they do not worry in the least about the disintegration of their ego. Observe that this happens, especially in South America. I have feared, for this reason, that what is going to turn out for us over there will be a good harvest of hasnamussen with a double center of gravity, unfortunately...

There we send them the book entitled Revolutionary Psychology. I don't know if you have studied it, or if you haven't studied it. But that book, then, is fulfilling a specific, defined mission.


All those who write to me ask me about degrees, initiations, how are they doing, if they are ready to receive a new one: the fourth, the fifth; all are adepts, all mahatmas, none of them little ones. But there is no one who writes to me telling me, telling me something about his work on himself, in the sense of achieving the dissolution of the ego, none!... They have no interest in dying. And in these circumstances what I am fearing is a good harvest of hasnamussen with a double center of gravity...

Student: Master, when a hasnamuss devolves into the abyss, does it take longer to disintegrate?

Samael Aun Weor: Yes, because he or she is a hasnamuss. The hasnamussen last eternities in the infernal worlds.

It is clear that if someone works in the forge of the Cyclopes through the transmutation of raw mercury, which is nothing else but the exiohehari, that is, the sacred sperm, the sexual secretions, they manage to manufacture the mercury of the secret philosophy.

Obviously, such mercury crystallizes in ascending octaves. When it crystallizes, for example, in an ascending octave the astral body is formed, that body is manufactured; when it crystallizes in a second ascending octave, the individual mind is manufactured; when in a third ascending octave, it crystallizes the body of the cognizant will, or causal body, is manufactured... Thus, such a human is a human in the full sense of the word. If someone has the physical, astral, mental and causal bodies, he becomes a human; and whoever becomes a human, therefore, incarnates in himself and by himself the superior ethical principles, that is, he receives the psychic and spiritual principles (that is why he or she is a human). But if he doesn't dissolve the ego, he becomes a hasnamuss. Because on the one hand the being is clothed with the superior existential bodies of the being, and on the other hand, the essence remains trapped or bottled up, or stuffed within the ego.

So, the essence, on the one hand, bottled in the ego, and the being clothed with the solar bodies, behold a hasnamuss with a double center of gravity: angel and devil at the same time; two personalities: one white and one black.

Student: So, the danger then is in fornication?

Samael Aun Weor: No, probably a human could not be a fornicator and yet be a hasnamuss.

If one does not dissolve the ego, I repeat, then that fortified ego becomes a new dark, integrated, strong personality. Thus, a hasnamuss has two personalities: one divine and one diabolical; he is an angel on the one hand, and a devil on the other hand; and he is both at once. He is, for this reason, an abortion of the cosmic mother, a failure...


The hasnamuss have to enter the submerged devolution of the infernal worlds; it has to devolve within the entrails of the planet, within the entrails of the Earth.

The fate that awaits the hasnamussen is serious... And they take longer, of course; those spend eternities in the infernal worlds. Because the higher degree of awareness, the higher degree of responsibility, and the one who adds wisdom adds pain...

Now that fornication, yes, is the basis for hasnamussen, because all egos are born from that root. But it is not just fornication, because there is anger, there is hatred, envy, selfishness, and each of these psychological defects is personified by some demon. So, all that set of inner demons, well, constitutes the ego itself, right?

Student: Master, so the real hasnamussen are made up of people who are inside the movement and who practice chastity, and they work on two factors and forget about the first factor of psychological death? So, by practicing and practicing chastity, by working in the forge of the Cyclopes and not finishing the ego, the ego becomes atomic, no, stronger? So, is there more chance that more hasnamussen will come out within the gnosis than outside the gnosis?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, "chastity" is very difficult...

Student: Very difficult until the self of lust is finished, it goes without saying, master...

Samael Aun Weor: And the ego of lust does not end overnight...

Student: That's right, master, I understand...

Samael Aun Weor: But obviously, if the different psychic aggregates are not dissolved, living personification of our errors, the ego continues. If someone is transmuting in the forge of the cyclops to manufacture the superior existential bodies of the Being, and does not dissolve the psychic aggregates that constitute the ego, obviously, that one eventually becomes a hasnamuss.

If, one gets the making of the bodies; but on the other hand, since one has not dissolved the ego, two things remain inside that someone: on the one hand the ego, which has not dissolved, and on the other hand, the internal Being clothed with the superior existential bodies of the being. There are two personalities: one white and one black.

So, then, if the ego is not dissolved, one becomes a hasnamuss with a double center of gravity...

Four Types of Hasnamussen

Student: Master, are there different types of hasnamussen? I would like you to give me an explanation.

Samael Aun Weor: Well, there are four classes. I have told you about these four classes. Now I am going to detail them, to break down the hasnamussen:

A first class of hasnamussen, then, is that of people who only have the planetary body, that is, the physical body. These types of people carry the ego within them, and do not yet possess the astral, mental or causal bodies, but have dedicated themselves to black magic, they are hasnamussen of the first type. They are perishable; after death, that kind of egos, if they were very perverse, enter the infernal worlds once and for all, they are perishable...

There is a second class of hasnamussen: people who exclusively manufactured the astral body. They certainly did not make another vehicle; they did not dissolve the ego. Since they didn't dissolved it, work or do anything else, they eventually become hasnamussen.

So, if they don't dissolve what they have of hasnamussen (that sinister coven aspect, that fatal negative), then they have no choice but to reincorporate themselves into animal organisms: in dogs, in cats, in horses, in eagles, in etc...

I would not call that devolution, but simply that they need to be reincorporated into animal organisms...

Student: Yes, because the law denies them the human body...

Samael Aun Weor: They are no longer given a human body for a time, but instead have to reincorporate into animal-like organisms, until they eliminate what of hasnamussen they have. Once eliminated, they take a human body again, to continue their esoteric work...

There is a third class of hasnamussen, which is that of humans, humans: complete humans, who manufactured the superior existential bodies of the being, in a complete, unitotal way. Obviously, if this class of subjects does not dissolve the ego, well, they have to devolve within the bowels of the Earth.

It is a negative crystallization of mercury. It is said that "negative", because they did not dissolve the ego. And a negative crystallization has to be dissolved within the bowels of the Earth.

And finally, there is a fourth class of hasnamussen: that of those dhyani bodhisattvas, call themselves "thrones", "cherubim", "seraphim", "angels", etc., who fell into the animal generation and gave rise to the resurrection of the ego within themselves. This kind of hasnamussen, if they don't eliminate the ego, because they have no choice but to enter the submerged devolution of the infernal worlds...

Student: Master, every fallen bodhisattva is one of those hasnamussen?

Samael Aun Weor: There are several kinds of bodhisattvas: simple bodhisattvas and dhyani bodhisattvas... These are bodhisattvas of Elohim, dhyani buddhas, princes of nature, etc. Of course, those, if they don't dissolve the ego, they have to devolve... ...these are the fourth kind of hasnamussen, obviously.

The number of the beast is 666 Philadelphia Rosenbach Museum and Library

First, let us remember Moloch, a luminous angel of yore, a horrid king besmeared with the blood of human sacrifices, with the tears of parents and the desperation of mothers. But for the loud noise of drums and timbales, unheard were the cries of their children, who passed through fire to be pitilessly immolated to this execrable monster, who at other times was a beautiful God…

The Ammonites worshipped him in Rabba and its watery plain, in Argob and in Basan, to the stream of utmost Arnon… 

The legend of the centuries state that Solomon, son of David, king of Zion, built a temple to Moloch right on that opprobrious hill.

The seven lords of time state that subsequently, this wise old king dedicated a sacred grove in the pleasant valley of Hinnom to that fallen Angel…

For that reason, that fecund, perfumed land changed its name to Tophet and black Gehennan, a true type of hell…

Next, following Moloch, a man-angel from archaic, volcanic Lemuria, where the rivers of pure waters of life were pouring forth milk and honey, came Baal Pehor, the obscene dread of Moab’s sons, who dwelled from Aroer to Nebo, and even far beyond the southernmost desert of Abarim…

He dwelled also in Hesebon and Horonaim, in Zion’s realm, beyond the flowery dales of Sibma clad with vines, and Eleale to the Asphaltick lake.

Frightful, left-handed, tenebrous Baal Pehor enticed the Israelites in Sittim on their march from the Nile, to perform for him wanton rites, which cost them woes…

From there, this Elohim, fallen amidst the luciferic, reddish fires, enlarged his lascivious orgies even to that hill of scandal, by the grove of the homicidal Moloch…

Thenceforth, it is obvious that their abominable debauchery was firmly established by hate, till pious Josiah drove them thence to hell…”  - Parsifal Unveiled by Samael Aun Weor

The Urgent Need to Eliminate Defects

Student: Venerable master, a hasnamuss who manufactures all his existential bodies of the Being, when he has another opportunity to return to Earth, with a physical vehicle, by working on the three factors, would it be up to him, only, to eliminate the ego in the forge of Vulcan, or also, rebuild the bodies that he has already formed?

Samael Aun Weor: If he has already formed the bodies, why is he going to rebuild them? Obviously, the astral body is immortal in the world of the 24 laws. Unquestionably, the mental body is immortal in the world of the 12 laws. The causal body is immortal in the world of the 6 laws. All you would have to do is restore the fire in the vehicles; the other, regenerate the gold in his bodies.

That would be what it should do and what it has to do... ...and it doesn't restore the fire, obviously it's still down.

And to regenerate the gold and restore the fire, the entire ego needs to be dissolved. Thus, if the dhyani bodhisattva was down, he gets up again...

Student: Venerable master, so, in short, we should rather start using the Vulcan's forge for Buddhist annihilation?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, of course! Buddhist annihilation is indicated. You have to die within yourself, here and now. Now, unquestionably, the dissolution of the ego is carried out with more success, precisely, in the forge of the Cyclopes. Whoever invokes devi kundalini, your divine cosmic mother, particular, individual during chemical copulation, will obviously be assisted. Devi Kundalini-Shakti will help you! And if you begs to eliminate this or that psychic aggregate, related to this or that psychological defect, devi kundalini will pulverize it, disintegrate it...

Student: If you have comprehended it...

Samael Aun Weor: Only if there is prior comprehension, of course! Previously, we must have comprehended the defect that we want to eliminate and have comprehended it in its integral, unitotal manner, having made ourselves cognizant of the defect that we want to remove from our psychological nature.

Student: Venerable master, could you teach us a key to gradually awaken comprehension?

Samael Aun Weor: Comprehension only comes to awaken through meditation. If we, for example, want to comprehend that we have this or that defect, to comprehend the deep significance of the defect that we really want to comprehend, obviously, through meditation we will be able to comprehend it..., through meditation...

But I believe that we must go further than simple comprehension: we need to know the deep significance of the comprehended defect. And to reach the deep significance, it is inevitably needed a deep interior meditation, but deep.

If we manage to grasp the deep significance of a defect, we will comprehend not only the defect itself, but also the psychological counterpart of the defect: the virtue that is enclosed within it and that, as an antithesis, has been contained in the defect itself... To reach the deep significance is something extraordinary...

Student: Another thing master, for example, those defects..., because many times we have the defects, and we are so attached to them that we don't even want to recognize them, but someone who recognizes a defect could throw it at us, and so we could do our part, by street analysis, let's suppose, would it also be useful if they told one: "Look, you have such a thing"? Or from someone, from a friend of someone who can say: "Look, you have this defect, you have this"...

Samael Aun Weor: It seems to me that no one has the right to judge anyone, and for this reason, each of us has to discover ourselves. Because whoever has certain defects, he projects them onto others. If, for example, we have selfishness, we project our selfishness onto the people around us, and we see everyone as selfish.

So that someone who is foisting on us just like that defect, he has it very much, but he sees it in us. So, for this reason, it is oneself who has to discover oneself.

Student: Venerable master, could you teach here, to those present, the practice that you gave us last time, on the eradication of the ego, with the divine mother?

Samael Aun Weor: The practice is simply natural: when you are hungry and young, you ask your mother for milk...

Student: The one with the...

Samael Aun Weor: Well, that is already a matter of groups; Now let's go to individual work: if you're hungry and you're little, you ask your mom to feed you, right? if one is thirsty, she gives a drink; if one is sleepy, she puts us to bed. Well, this is how one has to be with one's divine mother kundalini: having comprehended a defect, well, we will have to beg our divine cosmic mother a lot (with the purest feeling, with the greatest naturalness), remove that defect from us, and so she will.

But it is clear that the maximum power is found in the forge of the cyclops. Because really, in the flaming forge of Vulcan, all the power of the divine mother Kundalini is reinforced, through transcendent sexual electricity. So, she, like this, can more quickly remove any of our errors.

Undoubtedly, any error is personified by some psychic aggregate; remember that the sacred scriptures say that Jesus took seven demons out of the body of Mary Magdalene... Seven egos (anger, greed, lust, envy, pride, laziness, gluttony). And those seven, in turn, are the head of the legion.

Thus, each human being carries multiple inhuman psychic aggregates within... ...each one of them seems to be a living person. If we say that inside a person there are thousands of people, we are not wrong, it is so. Each one of these aggregates looks like a person: each one has his own criteria, his feelings, he has his way of speaking, feeling, thinking; each one is a complete person.

I knew of a case of sorcery that happened here, in our Gnostic movement, in Mexico. A vampiress who called her little brothers and sisters to remove sorceries and witchcraft... Well, that person was a lady, I would say "vampiress"; all she did was vampirize them... 

An Instructor's Elaboration on the Lecture

Quotes from scriptures of kabbalah with commentary by a gnostic instructor, as an elaboration on the lecture by Samael Aun Weor.


Alchemical meaning of the ascension of the creative fire of Samaech ס, the Auroboros אורוברוס. Samaech סמך the carrier of the power and light (Samaech Aun VeAur סמך און ואור), along the letter Vav ו, the spinal medulla, which is the house of David דויד. This is the birth from the Virgin, the Schekinah שכינה or the annoiment of fire of the Holy Spirit, from Yesod יסוד to the Iod יוד (the two letters Daleth ד of the name David דויד),  The Iod י is the crown of David דויד, Iod יוד correpond to Kether, Chokmah, and Binah. 

The Gematria of the name דויד David: 4+6+10+4 = 15. Fifteen corresponds to the letter ס Samaech of יסוד Yesod. Fifteen 1+5 = 6; six corresponds to the letter Vav ו, which is the House of David, the house of Samaech ס, the Auroboros אורוברוס, Samaech סמך the carrier of the power and light (Samaech Aun VaAur סמך און ואור) from the Ain Soph Aur אין סוף אור.

Malkuth מלכות correspond to the kingdom of King (מלך Melek) David דויד, this is why the tenth letter is Iod יוד, which corresponds to Malkuth מלכות, the tenth Sephirah, which is Malkah מלכה, which correspond to the (Shabat שבת) seventh day of creation, the Queen Bet-Sheba בת שבע.


The lovers performing sexual alchemy

The first Daleth ד corresponds to Binah, the Father and Mother, the Iod י and Hei ה of יהוה sexually united in Daath דעת. And the Daleth at the end of the name David דויד corresponds to husband and wife, the Vav ו and the Hei ה of יהוה sexually united in Yesod יסוד.

The Vav ו is the house of David דויד which corresponds to Yesod and Tiphereth and Daath, united with the Son, Ben בן, the Beth ב of Ben בן coreesponds to Beresheet בראשית, or Bet  בית Rosh ראש, the head-house of Chokmah חכמה wisdom, the Son of Adam Kadmon, the son of David דויד. And the final Nun of Ben בן, corresponds to the Messiah, Ieshua, Jesus, the son of Nun יהושע בן־נון, INRI, the fire, the Christ, the son of Adam and Eve, who are Jah-Chavah יה-חוה.

“And David (דויד) lifted up his Ath eyes (את־עיניו) and saw the angel (Chesed חסד) of יהוה (Binah בינה) standing (in Daath דעת) between (left and rigth pillars of) the Earth (בין הארץ) and between (left and rigth pillars of) the heavens (ובין השמים), having a drawn sword (from Geburah גבורה) in his hand (ידו) stretched out over Jerusalem (meaning, stretched out in the central pillar from Yesod יסוד to the Iod יוד in the pineal gland).” – 1st Chronicles 21: 16

Owing that the land (Malkuth or physicalities) of Israel having become corrupted by evil (due to orgasm)."

Rabbi Eleazar said: "What David (דויד) beheld at that awful moment was not an angel but a manifestation of the Holy One (Binah בינה). The scripture uses the words 'The Angel of the Lord' as a metaphoric appellation of the Divine Being, as did also Jacob when blessing Ephraim and Manasseh saying:

“The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name (Israel in Tiphereth) be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham (Chesed) and Isaac (Geburah); and let them grow into a master (לרב) in the midst (of their spinal medulla) of the Earth (their physicalities).” - Genesis 48:16

And furthermore, in Exodus, the Almighty is referred to and designated as:

“The Angel of HaElohim האלהים, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them.” -Exodus 14: 19

Whether (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים of) Israel acts uprightly or not, the Holy One is still its ruler and governor in order that it may not become subject to other (egos, Goim גוים), and that its good works may put them to shame. It may however be said, yet it is written:

“The adversary hath spread out his hand upon all her pleasant things: for she hath seen that the (egos, Goim גוים) entered into her sanctuary, whom thou didst command that they should not enter into thy congregation.” - Lamentation 1: 10


Jacobs Dream

Israel is a word that must be analyzed.

“Is” reminds us of Isis and the Isiac mysteries.

“Ra” reminds us of the Solar Logos.

Let us remember the disc of Ra found in the ancient Egypt of the Pharaohs.

“El” is “El.” “El” is the interior, profound God within each one of us.

In sequence and correct etymological corollary, the people of Israel are constituted by the various parts “of the Being.”

All of the multiple self-cognizant and independent parts of our own individual Being constitute the people of Israel.

The grace of the interior Lord falls upon us when, in reality, we have passed through the Buddhist Annihilation.” - Excerpt From: The Gnostic Bible: The Pistis Sophia Unveiled by Samael Aun Weor

We have written the word goyim גוים in Hebrew, a word that in the Bible is always translated as “nations.” The singular form of goyim is goy [גוי], which is a word usually given to those who are not Jewish, Hebrew. We agree with this definition, but only from the esoteric, alchemical, kabbalistic point of view, because if you rearrange the letters of the word goy, you find the word ego (יגו). This is precisely what needs to be understood by the word goy (יגו), goyim (גוים), which is that it means ego or egos. In reality, all the people of the Earth, including those of the state of Israel, have ego within and that ego is precisely what the Bible refers to as goyim [גוים] or “nations.” Our towns, nations, countries, etc are formed by a collection of egos. It is written:

“We must destroy Babylon the Great, the mother of all fornication and abominations of the Earth. Obviously, Babylon is our psychological city, populated by the psychic aggregates (the goyim גוים) that we carry within our interior.” - Excerpt From: The Gnostic Bible: The Pistis Sophia Unveiled by Samael Aun Weor

Zohar continues:

If the Holy One governs (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים of) Israel as stated, how was it that the (egos, the Goim גוים) entered her sanctuary and destroyed it? Scripture itself gives the reason, as it is written:

“They have heard that I sigh: there is none to comfort me: all mine enemies have heard of my trouble; they are glad that thou hast done it: thou wilt bring the day that thou hast called, and they shall be like unto me.” - Lamentation 1: 21

יהוה hath done that which he had devised; he hath fulfilled his word that he had commanded in the days of old: he hath thrown down, and hath not pitied: and he hath caused thine enemy to rejoice over thee, he hath set up the horn of thine adversaries.” - Lamentation 2: 17

From these words we conclude and affirm that notwithstanding the occurrence of all these calamities, the Holy One is still ruler of (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים of) Israel and that only by his permission could they have happened. Observe, scripture states:

“And Elohim looked upon the Earth (Malkuth or physicalities), and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the Earth (Malkuth).” – Genesis 6:12

Because the Schekinah שכינה had deserted it, as we have said. Moreover, it is stated:

And HaElohim האלהים saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and HaElohim האלהים repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.” - Jonah 3:10  

The cry of the Earth (Malkuth or physicalities) is always ascending heavenwards and desirous of union with the celestial world, enrobes itself with (solar) raiments of beauty and splendor, as doth a maiden expecting the arrival of her lover.

When its children (Malkuth or physicalities) are upright and virtuous, they become its ornaments. Far otherwise was it when the deluge came, for then they were vile and depraved and corrupted, so that the Earth blushing with shame at their deeds of wickedness hid itself, as doth an unfaithful wife from her husband. When, however, they became brazen, openly lewd, obscene and sensual, then like an immodest courtesan casting aside her veil, it also became unclean and corrupted, as it is written:

The Earth (Malkuth or physicalities) also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. - Isaiah 24: 5

Then corruption both moral and physical prevailed throughout the world, for all flesh had corrupted it's way upon the Earth.

Rabbi Eleazer was once on a visit to Rabbi Jose the son of Rabbi Simeon and grandson of Lakunya, who on beholding him spread a sumptuous couch on the floor in order to recline and rest himself. After engaging a while in silent meditation, his grandfather said:

"Have you ever heard your father explain the meaning of the words:

יהוה hath done that which he had devised; he hath fulfilled his word that he had commanded in the days of old?” - Lamentation 2: 17

Rabbi Eleazar said: "Initiated students have interpreted them thus, the words 'fulfilled his word' (bitza emratho בצע אמרתו) signify that AElohim has rent his purple robe of glory and light with which he had arrayed himself from the beginning of creation and contributed to the beauty and perfection of his sanctuary (the Ain Soph Aur אין סוף אור)."

Then asked his grandfather again: "Does a king think or devise punishment before his son has acted wickedly?"

To this Rabbi Eleazar replied; "A certain king possessed a most costly and precious vase. Fearing the loss of it, he caused it to be continually placed before him. At length his son came to visit him and, on a dispute, arising between them, the king in a moment of anger seized hold of the vase and dashed it to pieces on the ground. Such is the signification of the words; 'The Lord hath done what he had devised.'

Observe, from the day the sanctuary was finished and completed, the Lord regarded it with continuous joy and delight, yet fearing that Israel would act wickedly, he determined it should be destroyed. Whilst (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים of) Israel kept the good law and lived in obedience to its dictates, purely and uprightly, there was the sanctuary the glory of Elohim on the Earth (Malkuth or physicalities), but when (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים of) Israel fell with idolatry (of their golden calf or their Nephesh Behemah נפש בהמה) and forsook his worship it was destroyed. At its destruction then only did the Holy One feel grief at the punishment of the guilty. On all other occasions it is a source of delight to him when the wicked through their misdeeds are swept out of the world, as it is written:

“When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.” - Proverb 11: 10

If, however, it be objected, we are taught that the Holy One never rejoices at the punishment of the evildoer observe that punishment is twofold in its character. There is the punishment of those who, despite the admonitions and long-suffering of Elohim, continue in their wickedness. The suffering of these causes joy to the Holy One. There is also the punishment of those whose perversity in crime has not attained its climax. Far from being a source of joy to him, their suffering causes the Holy One to sorrow and grieve over them. There are wretches who are afflicted before their wickedness has reached its culmination, as it is written:

“But in the fourth generation (of Netzach נצח, the mental body) they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites (the intellectuals) is not yet full.” – Genesis 15: 16

If, again, it be asked, wherefore Elohim chastises sometimes those whose iniquity is not full? We answer, evildoers (the Nephesh Behemoth בהמות נפש) whose bad deeds injure only themselves are punished only when the measure of their iniquity is filled, whilst the unrighteous who attach themselves to (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים of) Israel with the object of afflicting and injuring it are punished before their evil intentions are realized. It is the chastisement of this class of evildoers that causes grief to the Holy One. Amongst such were the Egyptians that were drowned in the Red Sea, and the enemies of (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים of) Israel in the time of Jehoshaphat It is written:

“For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the Earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the Earth.” - Genesis 7: 4

Rabbi Jehudah said: (Authentic Jews are only the children of the lion from the tribe of Judah, meaning, the Christified ones. Those who say that they are Jews (illuminated ones) and are not, do lie. Really, these people belong to the synagogue of Satan). "Wherefore this limit of forty days and nights? It was because this number is always found in connection with (the thirteenth letter Mem מ which value is 40) the infliction of punishment, as it is written:

“Forty stripes he may give him, and not exceed: lest, if he should exceed, and beat him above these with many stripes, then thy brother should seem vile unto thee.” – Deuteronomy 25: 3

This number is fixed to correspond with the four cardinal quarters of the world, each of which is divided into ten parts or degrees as man was created to correspond with them in a manner, for the commission of crime he must not be beaten with more than forty stripes. For a like reason, this number forty was equally necessary in the punishment of the world."

Rabbi Isaac was sitting in presence of Rabbi Simeon, and in course of conversation asked the question: "What is the real meaning of the words:

'And the Earth was corrupt before the Elohim.' Though man commit crime how can it affect the Earth and make it corrupt?"

Rabbi Simeon replied: "Scripture informs us that the Earth (Malkuth) and all flesh upon it had together become corrupt. There is found another and similar expression or statement:

 “And the Earth is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the Earth itself vomits out her inhabitants.” – Leviticus 18: 25

Now, if it be said, though men sinned, how could their crimes cause the Earth to be corrupt, so that along with them it is subject to punishment? Observe that the sins of mankind that corrupt it are effaceable by repentance except that of self-defilement; and so scripture states:

“For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap, yet thine iniquity is marked before me, saith Adonai Iod-Havah אדני יהוה.” - Jeremiah 2: 22

And again:

“For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.” – Psalm 5: 4

Only by extraordinary penitence can this heinous sin be expiated, respecting which it is written:

“And Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of יהוה; and the LORD slew him.” - Genesis 38: 7

Which verse has already been commented upon.

Again Rabbi Isaac questioned Rabbi Simeon: "Wherefore did God punish the antediluvians by a deluge of water rather than by fire or some other scourge?"

Rabbi Simeon replied: "Therein is involved a deep mystery. In indulging in the heinous sin of self-pollution (better said, orgasm or sexual pollution) man impeded and prevented the union of the waters above with the waters below, or in other words, the male and female (fluidic) principles, and as therefore punished by a watery element; so that in their case the punishment fit the crime. Scripture states:

In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.” - Genesis 7: 11

The fountains of the great deep refer to (Mah מה of HaMayim המים), the waters below (the genital fluid), and the windows of heaven to (Mi מי of HaMayim המים), the waters above (the cerebrospinal fluid)." - Zohar
