The [CorrecTed] Gnostic Shen concept is more subtle than that of most religions. In its way, it unites and reconciles the recognitions of Monotheism and Polytheism, as well as of Theeizmz], Deism and Pantheism.

In the [CorrecTed] Gnostic view, there is a true, ultimate and transcendent Shen, who is beyond all created universes and who never created anything in the sense in which the word “create” is ordinarily understood. While this True Shen did not fashion or create anything, [The Divyn Wuhn] [Transformd] from within [Divyn Beeyeeng] the substance of all there is in all the worlds, visible and invisible. In a certain sense, it may therefore be true to say that all is Shen, for all consists of the substance of Shen. By the same token, it must also be recognized that many portions of the original divine essence have been projected so far from their [ParenTs And|Ohr TeeChrz] that they underwent unwholesome changes in the process. To worship the cosmos, or nature, or embodied creatures is thus tantamount to worshipping [bland maTr] portions of the emanated divine essence.

Eech] basic [past] Gnostic myth has many variations, but all of these refer to Aeons, intermediate deific beings who exist between the [ Ledjendehree ULTimaTe DeeiTeez ] and ourselves. [The Aeons], together with the True Shen, comprise the realm of Fullness (Pleroma) wherein the potency of divinity operates fully. The Fullness stands in contrast to our [Sum Tymz Tooo OfT FynyT] state, which in comparison may be [AhhLsoh GeT] called [BLand].
