    That is strange... the Divine is the opposite of the Demiurge... at least when looked at with Gnostic eyes... to be fair Ken might mean "artisan" (or "producer"), which is another translation of the word. I guess I am too influenced by Gnosticism to see the Demiurge as nothing but The Paternal Lie of Fundamentalistic Belief and Fascim.

    Although I actually stopped reading at that point, because if his outlook from the start is that "the Divine" is the Demiurge, then I am Elvis Presley.

    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    The demiurge was also vonsidered to be the spiritual forces of the demons that run the lower worlds (including ours) and they do certain 'operations' that give function to this dimension.

    This is why he points out the difference; The ultimate Father is one thing, the "Divine operations" are another thing. Read Pistis Sophia. An incredible tome of gnostic literature that goes into this in great detail.

    Also, to clarify, those spiritual forces when getting unbalanced and demonic; show up in this world as principalities, authorities, dominions, ect...
