I have a few names of my own which I'd love to share with you.


The Storyteller - the demiurge that exists in a vast tapestry of creative symbols, each representing a story. To me, a story is the events that unfold to ensure a wisdom gained by those involved. A story can be about several lives, or just one. It can be a day's happening, and an entire life from start to finish. Ever had one of those moments when you realize just what your whole life has actually been about? I feel that there are great symbols behind these phenomena.


A bit about symbols - Gnosticism talks about the Theory of Forms, a realm of perfect reality from which ours is a mere shadow. I believe that beyond that realm, is one of Truth symbols.


The Carpenter / The Architect - The demiurge who maintains the workings of a mathematically elegant universe. This realm is alive with math, and it lives within us as our native, universal language. His is the Tapestry of Mechanics.


U - A symbol for a nurturing universe, described by many pagan beliefs. It seeks to help a person learn wisdom by demonstrating itself only obviously enough to get the message home (twice or thrice if need be), and subtly enough to help the heart understand how gentle and loving its life lessons are. There is a math to this Tapestry of Emotion, which I've written into a little expression I enjoy. It shows that 'i', the individual, will be shown as inferior to (or is less than) 3 'u' - the universe thrice demonstrated.

The most meaningful, profound and Gnostic names for God that I have seen have been the names that that God is reported to have spoken to Moses in Exodus 3.14 responding  to Moses’ question as to what name he should call God.  In the early translations of this response between 200 BC and 400 CE; before the Christian translations changed it to “I am that I am” the following names were given:


The Septuagint Bible, which is the first translation of the old testament from Hebrew into Greek, which was done by a group of Hebrew priest; circa 200 BC translates the name as “I am who is”.


The Theodotion and Aquila Bibles; circa 200 AD translate it as “I shall be [who] shall be”.


The Vulgate Bible which was commissioned by a Pope in 382 AD; about the time that Saint Augustine was on the verge of converting from Gnosticism to Christianity translates it as “I am who am”.


The Targum of Jonathan; circa 0 BC/AD explains God’s follow up statement as to who Moses should say has sent him as “I am who am, and who shall be, hath sent me to you.”


 


“I am who is”, “I am who am” as well as “I am who am, and who shall be” all seem to say to me that God is saying that God is all conscious beings; past present and future.  This is consistent with the statement in Psalm 82.6 “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High” and Jesus quoting this statement in part in Luke 6.35 and John 10.34.  This also is consistent with Plato’s probable description of God in his Timeaus and the Gnostic pantheistic philosophy.


Creation is a work in progress.
