Follow up on the Burning Man festival
Sep 06, 2017
I wrote earlier how the Burning Man festival in Nevada represents human sacrifice, but since it is such a public event, they have to burn an effigy, rather than a real person. But a man then ran into the flames in order to give it some reality. Whether he was brainwashed by some satanic cult or drugged, we will probably never know for sure. Even so, it is clear that this act was designed to create more sin and thereby increase the potency of their satanic prayer rituals.
The man was rescued by firefighters, but he later died anyway, according to news reports.
A man rescued from the flames at the Burning Man festival's signature burning of a towering effigy has died after being airlifted to a hospital.
Pershing County Sheriff Jerry Allen said the man ran through a human-chain of security officers at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday during the Man Burn event at the counter-culture festival.
The sheriff said the man was rescued by firefighters and later died at the UC Davis hospital burn center in California.
The Daily Mail published many photos of the festival, but one was removed later—but not before someone got a screen shot of it. The photo that was removed was of an abraxis:
An abraxas is a gnostic idea. Gnosticism was founded by Simon Magus, mentioned in Acts 8:9.
The seven letters spelling its name may represent each of the seven classic planets. The word may be related to Abracadabra, although other explanations exist.
There are similarities and differences between such figures in reports about Basilides's teaching, ancient Gnostic texts, the larger Greco-Roman magical traditions, and modern magical and esoteric writings. Opinions abound on Abraxas, who in recent centuries has been claimed to be both an Egyptian god and a demon. The Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung transcribed a short Gnostic treatise in 1916, attributed to Basilides in Alexandria called The Seven Sermons to the Dead, which called Abraxas the supreme power of being transcending both God and the Devil and unites all opposites into one Being.
It is no coincidence that this so-called music and arts festival would be religious in nature, tracing back to the Gnostic religion. Gnosticism was a mix of all religions, even bringing some Christian themes into it, which they reinterpreted in a way that supported their own mystery religious traditions.
