Welcome and thank you for visiting the Aeon Eye. Here, you will find all sorts of musings on philosophy, religion, fiction, writing and other subjects. Enjoy your stay! My name is Alexander Rivera and The Aeon Eye is a blog dedicated to this author’s research and ideas regarding scholarship in theology, various ancient texts spanning different cultures of all ages, comparative mythology, philosophical exegesis, apocrypha, patristics, the Nag Hammadi Library and the Bible. The author (me) is also an aspiring novelist and fiction writer.
I call this blog, The Aeon Eye, because “aeon” generally means “age” in Greek but also “eternal truth” and is a term that is used heavily in many mystical traditions. The “eye” is in reference to Plato’s Metaphor of the Sun in the Republic in which the mind’s eye is the vessel for “nous” or illumination.
When the mind’s eye rests on objects illuminated by truth and reality, it understands and comprehends them, and functions intelligently; but when it turns to the twilight world of change and decay, it can only form opinions, its vision is confused and its beliefs shifting, and it seems to lack intelligence.
The result from the combination between these two terms should be obvious. I do believe the human eye contains the secrets of the universe.
I also want to say that I am not a Catholic, Protestant, Anglican, Eastern Orthodox (yet), Coptic Orthodox, Seventh Day Adventist. I am also not a Satanist, Luciferian, Theosophist, Republican, Democrat, or any other thing one might fantasize about accusing me of being. I am a Gnostic. I believe in the incarnation and resurrection of Christ. I know the truth about the parables, the law, and the mission of Jesus.
