Fundamentals of Gnostic Education: Consciousness

Consciousness

People confuse consciousness with intelligence or with intellect, thus, they qualify a very intelligent or intellectual person as a very cognizant person.

Undoubtedly—and without fear of deceiving ourselves—we affirm that within a human being the consciousness is a very particular means of apprehending internal knowledge and is completely independent of any mental activity.

The faculty of consciousness facilitates the knowledge of ourselves.

Fundamentals of Gnostic Education: Parents and Teachers

Parents and Teachers

The gravest problem of public education is not the students of primary or secondary schools, or academies, but the parents and teachers: if parents and teachers do not know themselves, if they are not capable of comprehending a boy or girl, if they do not know how to deeply understand their relationship with these creatures who are starting to live their life, if they are only concerned with cultivating the intellect of their students, then how can we create a new type of education?

The child, the student, goes to school to receive conscious guidance, but if the teachers are of narrow criteria, conservative, reactionary, regressive, this is how the student will be.

Fundamentals of Gnostic Education: The Human-like Machines

The Human-like Machines

Notwithstanding that the human-like machines are the unhappiest beasts that exist in this valley of tears, astoundingly they have the pretentiousness—and even the insolence—of calling themselves “kings and queens of nature.”

“Nosce Te Ipsum” (Know thyself)—this is an ancient golden maxim written on the invincible walls of a temple of the city of Delphi of ancient Greece.

The human-like machines—those wretched intellectual animals who mistakenly classify themselves as humans—have invented thousands of very complicated and intricate machines.

Fundamentals of Gnostic Education: The Integral Individual

The Integral Individual

The profound comprehension of oneself is the true sense of a fundamental education, since all the laws of nature are found within each individual. Therefore, those who want to know all the marvels of nature must study them within themselves.

To enrich the intellect is the only concern of a false education; this enrichment can be achieved by anybody, since it is obvious that anyone with money has the luxury of buying books.

Understand: we are not pronouncing ourselves against intellectual culture; we are only pronouncing ourselves against the uncontrolled eagerness for mental accumulation, since a false intellectual education only grants subtle evasions in order to run away from ourselves.  Yes, all erudite, intellectual addicts have marvelous evasions that allow them to run away from themselves.

Fundamentals of Gnostic Education: Evolution, Devolution, Revolution

Evolution, Devolution, Revolution

In practicality we have been able to verify that as much in materialistic schools as in spiritualistic schools, people are completely bottled up within the dogma of evolution.

Deep down, modern opinions about the origin of human beings and their past evolution are cheap sophistry; they do not withstand a profound, critical study.

Notwithstanding that all of Darwin’s theories have been accepted as articles of faith by Karl Marx and his much revered dialectic materialism, modern scientists know nothing about the origins of the human being: they have proved nothing, they have experienced nothing directly, and they lack accurate, specific, and precise proofs about human evolution.
