    No.

    The label of Gnostic Christian seems to have included all the more Gnostic cults. I might qualify as a Parfait though if I belonged to a church and not just followed their religious ideology.

    The congregation would have to judge me as such a label, IMO, can only be given. It would be presumptuous for me to label myself that.

    We only have one each as far as I know. The spark of God is more like a soul which I define as life force. Mani has been written up as one who had some supernatural leanings which most Gnostic Christians do not believe in.

    The furthest I do towards the supernatural is a belief in a cosmic consciousness of the type this research is finding. I see telepathy as a natural phenomenon that can access it. I have claimed apotheosis but if you are not willing to believe that telepathy is real then nothing I put of that will phase you. If you believe this science to be true or accurate, then you might have a question.



    Regards

    This is perfectly in line with most basic tenets of ancient Christian and non-christian gnosticism - dualism and the divine realm; for example the Apocryophon of John deals with this.

    Yes, it is an old belief but most see it as a supernatural phenomenon while I see it as natural. As natural, it can die.
