Snakes and Ladders
A very old children’s board game.
In this game, the player spins a “spinner”
or throws a set of dice to determine how
many positions to move on the board. If
you land on a ladder, you go up; if you land
on a snake, you go down. Children and
adults played this type of game long before
the advent of radio or TV.
The original Snakes and Ladders game
showed the snakes with the head pointed
downward. Modern versions have it
reversed with the head pointing upward.
This would only be of interest to Gnostics,
because to them, the snake represents the
kundalini in the spinal column. The head
upward is a master; but downward it
represents the fallen one.
Gnostic Lecture – 16, The Fallen Tower,
The Law of Return, Reincarnation, and
Reocurrence (to the right) speaks about
“Jacob's Ladder.” This is the mechanism
for attaining masterhood. The Jacob’s
Ladder in the science lab is a device that
generates high voltage between two wires.
The electric arc goes from the bottom to
the top. It is a very fascinating thing to
watch, but the Gnostics aren't referring to
that when they talk about Jacob’s Ladder.
They are referring to the “electricity” in the
spinal column. The generator is the primal
energy that we all possess.
This Snakes and Ladders board game is
similar to a more serious game that is
played throughout the universe. The
Gnostics play this “game” as if it were a
matter of life or death. Once you
investigate the teachings of Samael Aun
Weor, the founder of Gnostic Anthropology,
you will realize the truth of this statement.

“The man who shot Liberty Valence – He
was the bravest of them all.” This is from
the movie The Man Who Shot Liberty
Valence, a classic Western. In the show
actor Jimmy Stewart plays the man who
stood up to the town bully Liberty Valence.
Stewart had a law book in his hand and
didn't know how to use a gun; but he stood
up to Liberty Valence in a gun fight. It was
never clear how a law book could kill
Liberty Valence, until the very end of the
movie. John Wayne might have had
something to do with things. This is an
Jimmy Stewart's “law book” represented
civilization coming to the wild West. There
isn't a society anywhere that will allow “bad
behavior” for any length of time, before
placing the offender into a prison, or worse.
All anti-social behavior comes from the ego.
If two men have a “duel” and one is killed,
what happens in the next life time? Gnostic
Anthropology deals with the “big picture.” In
this podcast Mr. E. Jim G. Ross tells us
what happens when we are born again after
committing this type of crime. A duel, or gun
fight, is where two men are bent on trying to
kill one another. As you will see from this
podcast, justice will be served.
Mr. Ross explains why some children are
born into starvation and may have only
days to live. Most people think that this is
very unfair. God is cruel. Why do we have
to endure such hardships in this world?
When you look at things from a Gnostic
point of view, you see that we have many
lives. When we commit a crime in one life;
we will pay for it in the next.
Do you think we have a lot of laws here on
Earth? The universe is full of laws – Cosmic
Laws. As above; so it is below. This podcast
deals with three particular laws:
The law of Return,
The law of Reincarnation, and
The law of Reoccurrence
The Gnostics say that we are not real
human beings. Historical people like Jesus
Christ, Buddha or Moses have attained the
status of “real human being.” For most
people the notion of “real human” is very
strange. Let's change the language for a
moment and say that we ARE humans.
Then, what would you call Jesus? Jesus
was a SUPERMAN. We think of superman
as being Clark Kent, saving the world from
evil. Doesn't that sound like Jesus?
To become a superman (or real human
being) you have to eliminate the ego. This is
such a rare event in our history that the vast
majority of people can't even grasp the idea
of what happened to Jesus when he
resurrected. If a person were to resurrect
today, do you think CNN or BBC would be
there with cameras, covering the event?
NO. There is someone in recent times that
has obtained resurrection. For that you have
to listen to this podcast.
