Gnosis Part 9: Order, Hierarchy, and Family Relationships in the Kenoma

by Ariel Glad, June 2, 2020

Click here for our Gnostic glossary

We will repeat the understanding that when things like this are described, they can only be told from an Earthly perspective, and so our ability to explain is extremely limited.

Stars, the Sun and Moon, mountains, clouds, water, even cosmology is oriented to an Earthly perspective, simply so that humans can understand the concepts of God and their reality. None of these terms represent a scientific perspective, so when we read about and write about things like planets, the sun, or even family relationships such as genetics, this is not a literal scientific explanation. These are only observations and things that a human can relate to from an Earthly perspective.

“Heaven” from this perspective can literally mean ANYTHING that exists above something else.

Above does not necessarily only mean up in the sky. It can also mean the vague and difficult to explain concept of vibration or frequency and position. Vibration or frequency is designated as either higher or lower. Lower simply means in relationship to the Pleroma. Nothing exists, in this Universe, that is as high as the Pleroma, therefore everything here can only be lower than. So, we give an order to these heavens or realms of existence within the Universe with numbers to indicate where they are located, vibrationally speaking, in relation to the Pleroma (the Pleroma, not being composed of matter, has no vibration. It is something we cannot understand from our worldly perspective and to speculate about it would immediately distort it).

Understand, however, that things are not situated in such way that you could get in a rocket ship and blast out into space with the assumption that the further you go, the higher you go. It isn’t like this. These layers or levels, or heavens, are realms which are situated at either higher or lower frequency, and distance has nothing to do with it. Each one could even be described as a Universe or sub-universe within the larger Hyper Universe (Kenoma) or Matrix. Many, many layers and levels exist in this Matrix; too many to count. ALL of it is within the Demiurgic creation we call the “construct”, or some call it the matrix. It is our Universe. ALL of it.

The Universe, from NASAs perspective, is a relatively young model. If we look at all ancient text, more or less, we see that the universe is depicted as having different heavens.

Directly beneath the Pleroma we have what is called the Eighth and Ninth Heaven. This is a sovereign position, and this is where an aspect of the Divine Feminine which descended into the darkness/ignorance of Her creation is positioned. This area of creation is not dark/ignorant, however, because it has been illuminated by the completion or conception of this Aeon when an aspect of the Pleroma, perfected by the Aeons, known as Christ, descended into this realm. As it was told in a previous Gnostic article, and also in the WWP, this pairing or coming together is to reconcile the darkness and bring it into the light. In the WPP, this was told in the form of a marriage or an alliance that was made in order to merge two factions of opposing forces so that they may co-exist as one. This is the Queen of Orion (Sophia/Divine Feminine) and Khan En.lil (Christ/King of Kings). Within this creation/Universe, there is no one above them, thus they are referred to as Queen and Khan/consort.


So, does hierarchy exist in this Universe? Yes, but only in the sense that there are things above and things below whichever perspective you are viewing things from. It is not rulership, as we think of it here.

Those who contain the Spirit are known as “the Kingless ones”. This is us. This means that there is none above us. We have come from the Pleroma through the Divine Feminine aspect, which is positioned in the middle and between the Pleroma and this Universe. There is nothing higher than the Pleroma and so there is nothing above our Spirit.

We can’t say, for sure, how many different realms or heavens there really are, but the common agreement is that there are seven heavens or upper realms that descend from under the eight/ninth heaven or place where the Divine Feminine is located. A firmament or veil is positioned between this realm and the seven heavens below it.

When we first entered this Universe or Demiurgic creation, we were given a home so we could have the experience of Life. This home has been referred to as Tiamaat in the WPP. It has also been called the First Atlantis.

This home was located between the seventh and eighth heavens (realms). This meant that we had a connection to our Spiritual home (Pleroma, through Zoë Sophia) through a portal or “gate”, and we were also in the Demiurgic Universe. We were in both “places” at the same time. It was a unique position.

Through a series of events, we fell from this position, or descended further down into the Universe. Our open connection to the Eight/Ninth Heaven, which is referred to as a gate (Saturn), was eventually closed. This descension is often told about in narratives such as the Enûma Elish, the WPP, and even the Bible as a “War in Heaven”. Because these realms contain both physical and intangible qualities, changes in frequency and vibration create changes not only energetically, but also physically. In other words, we as well as our planet underwent drastic physical changes, as a result.

Although we do not know for sure, there are some indications that we were repositioned in the third Heaven (Venus). This position was known as the Second Atlantis.In the Wes Penre Papers, it was called Tiamaat. This is when took control of the experiment and began to do very much experimenting of his own and co-mingling with the human population that produced a chaotic mess of hybrid and interspecies creations. Humans were also terribly traumatized and heavily influenced by technology during this period. Humans still lived a very long time in their physical bodies, and a reincarnation or recycling system was in place within these seven heavens. We are not sure in which realm it was located. There has been some information to suggest that it was in the Fifth Heaven (Mars), and to the best of our understanding, it is still operational and being used. There will be more on this in the next article. Not much about this period in our history is known to us, and what little information there is, has been, to a very large degree, corrupted by the Hermetic insertions of history through the archon known as Thoth/Hermes.

Another event caused us to descend a second time, which has landed us in the position we are into this day.

After this second descension, we became trapped into what is commonly known of as the Underworld. This Underworld consists of a copy of the top five heavens, and we are at the bottom, or in the last realm.

After this second relocation, a firmament or a “veil” was placed between the upper realms and the lower realms, once again like a copy of the previous station or position that Yaldabaoth experienced in the upper realms.

Copy, copy, copy into infinity! To see things from this perspective really gives a very good perspective, we think, into the character and qualities of Yaldabaoth. He is nearly identical to a self-replicating program that keeps copying itself with no end in sight. The more this happens, the further away from the Pleroma we descend and the darker these copies become. “He” loses a lot of his personably identifiable qualities at this point and begins to resemble something closer to Artificial Intelligence. Something to think about, perhaps.

The location of the moon and the Sun are within the firmament and act as functions of relay to either recycling or reincarnation, depending on the soul qualities of the one passing through. For those who are not immediately reincarnated (through the moon relay), they may briefly pass through the Sun(Light) and into the upper realms or seven Heavens for various experiences before reincarnating back to Earth or they may pass into other realms (sub-universes/Heavens) for other worldly experiences on different “planets” or in different simulations. Each Heaven being designated and appropriate for certain actions and experiences based on a person’s individual soul qualities and the Archon in charge of that realm.

What science tells us of “space” is nothing of the truth. We simply cannot get into the upper realms or levels of these seven Heavens without passing through the Sun (Light), and for that we must shed our physical body. The Sun acts as a portal through which energy from the upper realms passes through into this lower Underworld.

So, what IS space? “Space” is simply scientific measurements that satellites, telescopes, and other instruments (computers) take and record to map out what they see through the firmament. “Space” is literally the distance between objects, and this is ALL science can do from here – measure the distance between objects it “sees” through the reflection of the firmament. When things pass close to the firmament, or when they enter into the atmosphere of this Underworld (it’s called Underworld because it sits under the firmament) we can see them with our own eyes, but we cannot and never will be able to “go there”.

Father, Mother, Sister, Brother, Son, and Daughter

Keep in mind that Yaldabaoth created Archons (Aeons, Archangels, Angels, and demons) from his own emanations in the same way that the Aeons of the Pleroma were emanations of the qualities of Source. These are not literal genetic lines of offspring in the way we think of a family. These designations or relationships are labeled according to where these emanations reside in relation to Yaldabaoth. An offspring or emanation from Yaldabaoth (who is Father in this Universe, meaning the Highest or the Begetter) is considered a son or daughter because they are “lower” than he.

If one of these Archons should be elevated to a higher position, to then be in the same position as or equal to Yaldabaoth, this Archon will be called a “brother”. This is why Sabaoth/Prince En.lil can be both Yaldabaoth’s son and his half-brother. When he was elevated by the Queen and was given his residence/Kingdom in the upper Heavens, he was now on a higher level than Yaldabaoth (for more details, see Gnosis 11). He is younger than Yaldabaoth because Yaldabaoth created him, but he was elevated to a higher position, so he is now considered the younger brother.

When reading some of the ancient texts, it can be very confusing to reconcile all these relationships if we are only thinking of them in terms of the human family. They are all emanations of Yaldabaoth, but their position or rank will determine their relationship with him. Also, the Divine Feminine, as we have seen, is given a different name depending on which level or aspect of Her we are referring to. ALL of them are the Divine Feminine in different expressions or at different ranks.  Each of these expressions or aspects are given independent will and ability to act according to their attributes or quality of character. An emanation or quality of Yaldabaoth, for example, which is envy, will produce an offspring or an Archon who imbues all the qualities of Envy. If this Archon is given Lordship over a realm, then this realm (heaven/sub-universe) will be formed out of this quality and also another quality to act as co-creation because just like in the Pleroma, they come in androgynous pairs, where one facilitates the creation of the other. These two Archontic forces will be called brother and sister.

We hope this clears up any confusion when it comes to family relationships and why these are not really families, but positions within the heavens.

*edited on 12/14/2020 ~ At the time that I wrote this article, I had a different understanding of hierarchy, names, and relationships. Some of the conclusions I have presented in this article are no longer valid to me in the same context they were when this article was written. The Gnostic material (and the WPP) was only a necessary steppingstone on a much longer path and journey into learning who I am. I believe that growth only comes from learning, and my intention is to keep learning and keep growing. Thank you for reading. ~ Ariel

    1. A picture says a thousand words to me. Interesting that I find visual images are more engaging than the written word which lies dead on the page until brought to life by mind/body and the spoken word. Your research is revealing and stimulating thanks

  1. @Ineedtoexit – These portals are part of the reincarnation systems and also how to “travel” between realms. We do NOT exit through them. If you want to leave this entire matrix (including upper and lower realms), then do NOT go into a Light (Sun/Moon, etc.) of any kind which will only lead you into another position within this matrix or right back to where you were last time. NO EXIT THROUGH THE SUN. If you will look at one of my diagrams, I have shown that the sun(s) is part of the recycling systems. I’m sorry this was not very clear.

    1. @Ariel Glad…Ah.. okay now its clear to me.. im confused in that one .. we need to get out here.. this realm is so corrupted .. thanks for clarifying this one and thank you both wes and ariel..

    2. Ariel & Wes,

      So when we exit through the grid, does that takes us to 8 &9th heavens? By exiting through the grid, do we bypass Saturn stargate?

      1. Yes, we will go to the 8th and 9th. No, we will not go through Saturn stargate (which is still closed, btw, from all I know). We are of Spirit and not of this Kenoma Universe, originally. We don’t need to go through stargates. This is nothing you need to be concerned about, though. It will happen automatically once you’re out of this Earth Matrix. You will end up where you’re supposed to go—8th or 9th.

  2. @Ariel, 1. what shape does Earth have in your opinion?

    2. According to some conspiracy theories, cellular towers + something like low-altitude machinery are used instead of satellites to provide us with internet access and geonavigation; and photos of Earth from space is actually airphotography. My personal research on the internet shows that there is a lot of physical machinery of AiF/archons in the sky and in other layers of Earth’s atmosphere – it is swarmed with their hi-tech.
    So, do satellites actually exist?

    3. And, if there might be multiple plasmoholographic hi-tech suns on Earth ( ( ), does this mean the real sun is outside the firmament and that, if we go straightforward, we first need to exit the firmament in order to access the sun? Or is the real sun somewhere near the firmament? And if the real sun is inside the firmament, why do AiF/archons use multiple artificial suns? I don’t get it.

    4. Yeah, if travelling across realms, it’s on your own without some portals.

  3. @Robin Obinray –

    1. I have no opinion about that. It doesn’t affect my understanding of things so it is a sidetrack that I’m not interested in.

    2. Yes, satellites exist, as far as I know.

    3. There are many suns in this Universe. From what I understand, they are portals that allow energy to move into or out of different realms. You’ll have to ask *them* why they do what they do. I have no idea. As for artificial sun technology, I’m familiar with it, but it isn’t relevant to my understanding of these different “heavens” or realms. I didn’t use any hi-tech sun holographs in my models or examples for this article.

  4. It makes perfect sense(we fell twice)!With every article written You go Higher & Higher!
    Thank you1

  5. Thank you Ariel for including the pictures,they certainly help to clarify the written words.Enjoying these articles very much and learning so much from being a part of this group.Love to you all

  6. Thank you wes and ariel, for all the information on the Gnostic texts…I have downloaded all of them.

  7. Wes and Ariel, I’ve understood that in order to exit this matrix, we have to activate the 4,,5 strand dna, and leaving happens thought the Halls of Amenti, after the sphere of Amenti is back on Earth. If we just focus on avoiding the light, makes things much easier, as long as we remember. A little confusing, but I am getting there. Thanks

  8. I think this might be the most helpful content I’ve ever read. I want to be clear about the subject matter though. The Christ uniting with the Divine Feminine corrected the error of ignorance and darkness in the 9th heaven? Does the timeline of this relate to Jesus at all, or did Christ uniting with Sophia happen before creation? I don’t think I’ve ever considered ignorance as the source of pain, suffering, darkness, etc before now. I’m sure I’ve heard this before, but the ego doesn’t want to accept it is ignorant, so it keeps pretending and generating trances for itself to prevent Gnosis and discovering it is/was ignorant. I’ve had a rough time of it since about the summer of 2016 and my suffering and sense of being lost eventually led me to purge myself of as many beliefs as I could identify. I have though for sometime now thought that belief is a placeholder of knowledge, that we play pretend (that we know), when we lack knowledge and if we have knowledge, we don’t require belief.
    The conclusion I arrived at sometime in 2019 was that I was a Nihilist and had been but just didn’t recognize it. But belief never was the “problem”, it was ignorance. If we don’t know what we are (like Yaldabaoth), then we create in ignorance. Sophia created Yaldabaoth in ignorance and immediately was disgusted by what she had done. So, I’m not a Nihilist after all, I’m an Ignoramus. So, being prisoners in the Patrix is a consequence we are all still ignorant or was ignorance corrected in all of creation? I suppose I should wait for the answer about the timeline and the impact Christ had on the human soul group.
    I re-read this PDF. I might have to peruse some more. I am genuinely grateful Wes & Ariel, thank you.

    1. @Bruce Maybe it helps by the fact that all humans are ignorant, not just you, so you’re not alone LOL. But to comment on your questions, the Christ first descended into this Kenoma Construct before humanity was created. This created harmony/balance in the 8th and 9th Heavens (Orion), but not in the 7 Heavens because Yaldabaoth was too stuck in his own ignorance and refused to accept that he is not the highest god of all. In a way, we can’t blame him more than we can blame ourselves for our own ignorance. After all, Yaldabaoth is only doing what he is supposed to do and was assigned to do–be the Ruler of the Kenoma/physical universe.

      Then, the human soul group was created with a mission to wake Yaldabaoth up from within–in increments. Just like planned, Yaldabaoth copied Tiamaat in the 7th-8th Heavens and created HIS versions of humans in the lower realms. This was expected because Y is copying and mimicking everything, just like an A.I. program. This gave Sophia/Christ an opportunity to put human Spirits into the lower realm bodies…

      When we descended into the Third Construct (after the Flood), it was so solid that we became just as ignorant as Yaldabaoth himself. Then, 2000 years ago, the Christ Consciousness funneled through a physical person we call Jesus or Yeshua/Yoshua. Not until then did we get the chance to receive Gnosis, i.e. the Light part of Spirit–Sophia’s counterpart. That resulted in the Gnostic texts.

      1. Thank you for the great response. So “we were put” into 3D bodies shortly after the flood – 11,000-13,000 years ago?? and we were recycled over and over again until 0 A.D.? How has the Christ Event 2000 years ago made a difference if that is not too big a question and (2 questions) is there a way to use this to eliminate our ignorance/do what Sophia did?

        1. Well, the First Atlantis was in the 7th-8th Heaven (where the lion slept with the lamb, so to speak). The Second Atlantis is what we are discussing in these current articles. Then, there is the Third Construct, in which we live here…that’s after the Flood. So, the War in Heaven when Tiamaat was destroyed was the Flood. The remnants we see (the asteroid belt) is the lower density version of what actually happened 13000 years ago. We are now in a lower density/dimension than we were before the Flood. So, we’ll get to that in upcoming articles. IOW, the human soul group has “fallen” twice.

          We had 3D bodies in the Second Atlantis for the first time (in the First Atlantis we were ethereal).

          What happened 2000 years ago was a game changer. We received the Wholeness of Sophia via Christ. The part that was missing in Sophia when she created the Kenoma was revealed to us 2000 years ago in form of Knowledge. From that Knowledge, we can now receive Gnosis by understanding the 2000 years old message. IOW, understanding the Gnostic texts. That will wake up up to Spirit/Light. That will help Sophia eliminate the deficiency in her original creation, and it will hopefully prepare Yaldabaoth’s awakening, too, so when the “Second Coming” is happening and the entire Kenoma will lighten up, ignorance will be revealed and has nowhere to hide. Yaldabaoth will have no choice than to receive Gnosis.

          I would say that part of what’s happening in the world today could have to do with people’s awakening. Apocalypse means that truth is revealed, and if we look at what happens, ignorance shows itself to such a degree that people start waking up, which leads to more ignorance surfacing…

  9. “ The part that was missing in Sophia when she created the Kenoma was revealed to us 2000 years ago in form of Knowledge.”
    Wes I kindly ask you this question : “2000 years ago “ was the only key moment for us, the not awakened spirited humans, since our existence in the second and third Atlantis … in which the Spirit/Light(Christ – the result of the 12 Aeons) = knowledge was reveled?
    All other philosophical and “religious” currents developed before did not have “the Truth Reveled”?
    Thank you in advance!

    1. @anamaria Yes, that is correct. It doesn’t mean other teachings didn’t have truth in it, but none of them had the Knowledge that could give us Gnosis. Only the Message 2000 years ago contained that. We would never be able to completely wake up to Spirit without the Message from Christ, because we didn’t have the Light part of our Spirit developed–just like Sophia didn’t when she created the entire Kenoma. This is according to the Gnostic Texts, of course, but it’s also my own experience now…

  10. What is that message from Christ? Is it the same message of salvation where we confess and declare Jesus as Lord? Why do we need a message and not an awakening caused by suffering from ignorance?

    1. The message from Christ, as told in the Gnostic gospels (conveniently excluded from the Bible), is what will trigger our real awakening to SPIRIT. It’s not an intellectual learning–at least not foremost. The Gnostic texts are conveyed in such a way that it can be taken into one’s HEART rather than one’s brain. Thus, a Spiritual connection to one’s Highest Self will be established, and that will wake us up from Ignorance to Gnosis/Knowledge. The message from Christ IS the Gnostic gospels.

      I would start with “The Book of John” (the long and short version) and then “On the Origin of the World.” Then I would go from there to what you’re drawn towards. All Nag Hammadi texts can be read online for free here: .

    2. @Dee ~ “What is that message from Christ? Is it the same message of salvation where we confess and declare Jesus as Lord? Why do we need a message and not an awakening caused by suffering from ignorance?”

      May I give you my perspective on this? From what I understand, the message was meant to be a catalyst to wake up the spirit inside the heart of every human, and the message was that by discovering who you are (ultimately LOVE), you will recognize that you do not belong here and eventually want to transcend this realm of suffering (as opposed to remaking it or changing it) and return to that Lovely Source from which you came. 🙂 It was never about making this world heaven because it can never and will never be that, but rather about finding and transforming yourself so that heaven (or this “Divine” state of being) is recognized as being an aspect of yourSELF, within.

      This is the redemption that we give to ourselves. No other person, messiah, scribe, Archon, Archangel, Lord, or Goddess can redeem us. This is something we do for ourselves as we set out to transform ourselves from the inside and therefore become less and less compatible with this world/realm of suffering and ignorance. “Be in the world but not of it”.

      Do not get confused and misled into thinking that some ET, Angel, or Christed Consciousness is “Lord”. <– What this represents is an ARCHETYPE (research Carl Jung) which is present inside the mind of our collective subconscious that we all share and therefore is an aspect of our individual soul (psyche). We will "try on for size" and also embody many, many other archetypes as well when we progress through this self-discovery and spiritual journey. Some of these roles are very good and some of them are very bad (or "archontic"). In the end, "savior" or redeemer is just a role that you fulfill for yourself. This is my understanding of things at the moment.

      Yes, I benefited from learning what was in the Gnostic texts, but my journey did not begin there, and it hasn't ended there, either. Reading the Gnostic texts doesn't automatically make someone come out of their ignorance. There is a personal responsibility we all must agree to assume on an individual, consensual level. We can't just read something and assume that things will automatically begin to magically fill in the blanks. We, at some point (at least in my experience), have to be willing to dedicate some of our thought-processes to what we read and attempt to figure out how it might be relevant in our own lives – and that is constantly changing, it seems, so it isn't something that ever becomes a solid conclusion. That conclusion will keep being expanded and expanded into higher and higher modes of thinking and relevance.

      Can an awakening come from experiencing suffering? Yes, absolutely. What causes one person to wake up may not be the same as another person.

  11. Thank you for your replies @Wes and @Ariel.

    I am curious and determined to understand how a text so deep written in codes and very difficult to understand can awaken a human’s spirit except it is discovered, taught and explained like you’re doing. This brings us to the need to have platforms ( Non-profit organizations, websites etc) to convey this message of Christ.

    This makes the Gnostic texts and its message like a subset or sect of what Christianity presents and it makes us (the presenters) to look desperate and extreme.

    Christianity is really attractive and its message is deeply rooted in the minds of billions. Some denominations teach about “awakening to the spirit and living through the spirit, leaving this world to our true home” just as it is conveyed in the Gnostic text only without the details

    I ask, since people can get awakened via various means (suffering, teaching, meditation etc) does this actually mean that this journey home does not necessarily require ” a message” but a discovery by any means available or presented to all based on their culture, location and nurture?

    1. @Dee ~ “I ask, since people can get awakened via various means (suffering, teaching, meditation etc) does this actually mean that this journey home does not necessarily require ” a message” but a discovery by any means available or presented to all based on their culture, location and nurture?”

      ^Yes, I tend to agree with your thinking the way you expressed it in this question. The reason I agree with this is that the Gnostic texts have not always been here. These messages were inserted here and written down for a future generation of humanity. Since it was *inserted*, that tells me it isn’t necessary or required from the get-go.

      I, admittedly, have a hard time being objective on this topic because I strongly disagree with the whole “chosen scribe” method that these higher-evolved beings like to use as their mouthpieces. If the message is *for* the benefit of humanity as a whole, why not give it *to* humanity? This seems like passing the buck and delegating the responsibility and accountability of these words to a human you have chosen to write them (which could be misinterpreted!!). This creates a loophole and I’m very suspicious of beings who like to create loopholes for themselves. If someone is not willing to be responsible for their own words, that makes me extremely cautious of the messages being given. That’s just me, though.

      Only if you feel it is necessary for your own development will it be necessary. We make the rules here for ourselves. There is no instruction manual, and even the Gnostic messages are *NOT* that manual. That’s the point…the only manual we have to live by is the one we write for ourselves within our own heart/mind. Some will not do this and be content to go along with whatever their church, leaders, and elders tell them they should do. That’s for each person to decide what is appropriate for them. For me, I try to stay as close to my heart as possible when trying to relate new information to my life. That’s the only advice I can give on how to best understand information.

  12. This so true @Ariel and I completely agree cos I was deeply rooted and kind of lost in trying to fulfil all the requirements of a manual – Bible when I got the greatest shock of my life while in deep silence and meditation. I kept asking about the cruelty revealed in the Bible and how unstable I find some actions of “God”. Then one day, while in silence, this knowing like a voice came on me – It said “Don’t follow the Bible, follow the Spirit within”. I guess it was my day of Gnosis and since then I’ve ensured I walk and live by the Spirit within.

    The Gnostics texts now helps me to add details like (flesh) to the Knowing within especially in terms of my Origin and how to transcend this realm to my real home – the Pleroma.

    Blessings to you and Wes for the great job.
