Scribe and Mark,
Just an aside. The three "types" wee published by the Gnostics many
centuries before Islam appeared. G. R. S. Mead in his Fragments of a Faith
Forgotten iterates the three types:
1. Hylic - the purely materialist person having no inclination or perception
beyond the physical.
2. Psychicos - The person who has access the Astral and Subtle Realms.
3. Pneaumaticos - The person who can penetrate the Spiritual Realms and
Understandings and acquire Gnosis
The suppression of the Gnostics by the Institution of the Church attended by
the burning of Gnostic Works, the condemnation and burning of Gnostics who
possessed a Teaching in variance to the Canon was later repeated by the
Institution of Islam upon the Sufi.
I encourage everyone on this Forum to purchase a Paperback Edition of the Nag
Hammadhi Library which in my opinion contains much that amplifies the
Blavatskian Teaching. You might also read Blavatsky's commentary on the Pistis Sophia
in CWL Vol. XIII.
