Tucker Carlson has been all over the news lately with proclamations that aliens are non-human, inter dimensional entities who have been here for thousands of years. There is a spiritual component here, he says. A really, really, really dark one. Apparently, too dark for Tucker to tell his wife. “Parts of the government don’t want you to know about it, but part of it is the public can’t deal with it. It’s too far out. The implications are too profound,” said Carlson. He describes a spiritual dimension where entities exist for good and evil – that is the UAP phenomenon – which are acting on people to make them do good and evil.

Carlson derived much from reading the New Testament, he said. As such, he could have, but did not, cite the ground zero source for his inter-dimensional entity comment. 

This is the apostle Paul who, in 35 AD, wrote:

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers (archons), against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12).

Not since Paul warned about the demon / archons (spiritual forces of darkness) who want to cause us to ‘sin’ and take our souls have so many paid attention. 

Carlson should also turn to the gnostics of Paul’s time. According to gnostic belief, the archons are malevolent beings who created this physical world (or universe) in order to enslave humanity and prevent us from reaching enlightenment. Ultimately, they seek to keep us trapped in the physical world. 

The primary Gnostic text that mentions the Archons is the “Apocryphon of John” (also known as the “Secret Book of John” or the “Gospel of John”).

Considered the most important Gnostic Christian text, and one of the most important in any spiritual library, in it Christ appears in his resurrection body after he has “gone back to the place from which he came” and provides his disciple, John, a revelation of healing secrets to create a more just world and link humanity to a transcendent race called the immovable race of perfect light humans. Also referred to as “just humans made perfect” (Hebrews 12:23), this is the ascended human race.

Lost for over 1,500 years until its discovery in the Nag Hammadi Library in 1945, this deeply spiritual, and equally sci fi, gospel has a powerful message for our time. 

The Secret Apocalypse of John was the first text to establish the idea that we live in a matrix or a simulated reality created by the archons who seek to keep humanity entrapped within this false ‘matrix’. 

Fortunately, says, John, Perfect Light Humans intervene and humanity rises to the Light. 

Many believe the Archons are back in business with AI and virtual reality technology that is coaxing humanity into a parallel world. This has immense spiritual implications. I have written about this spiritual battle (Organic / spiritual humans v. AI and Transhumansim) for nearly two decades.

Tens of millions of people have now gotten the message.

Now, the question is, what can we do about it?


For Paul, Jesus and the Armor of God were the answer.

To defeat the archons we must be dressed appropriately…

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities (archons), against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

“Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

Stand firm then,
with the belt of truth buckled around your waist,
with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

Take the helmet of salvation and
the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.”

Ephesians 6:11-18

The High Priest and the Armor of God.

Paul is clearly urging us to augment or supplement the human body with six tools or ‘apps’ for a battle against an otherworldly force. Some take these as literal or actual power tools or technologies to be acquired (and improved upon, perfected).

Paul actually borrowed these tools from the Jewish High Priest.

The helmet of salvation, the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the sandals of peace are worn by the High Priest on the Day of Atonement when the priest went beyond the veil into the Holy of Holies of Solomon’s Temple.

Here, the High Priest would commune with the Israelite god, YHWH, who manifested as a luminous, rainbow-like, humanoid figure on or above the Ark of the Covenant. His presence filled the room with rainbow light.

When the Kohen Gadol (High Priest) put on this breastplate and went into the temple on the Day of Atonement, he had already undergone elaborate (cannabis oil-based) preparations for purification. The experience was considered awesome, even perilous. Imminent danger, even death, as well as redemption was at stake. If successful, he was able to experience God as “a consuming fire” that shone like a rainbow.

The Mareh Kohen is a Jewish song/prayer that describes the sight of the High Priest emerging victoriously from the Holy of Holies in the Temple after the Atonement ceremony.

Like the lightning that emanates from the splendor of the divine beings was the appearance of the Kohen,

Like the blue thread in the fringes of the four corners of the garments was the appearance of the Kohen,

Like the image of the rainbow formed in the clouds was the appearance of the Kohen”.

“Like the lightning”?

Lightning is plasma, the same substance as the Sun. The angels who were present in the tomb of Jesus were also described in Matthew 28:3 as having the appearance of lightning.

“Like the image of the rainbow”?

Is this tradition literally telling us that the high priest was transformed into a plasma being with the splendor of a rainbow, meaning he was gloriously robed in multi colored light?

If so, our question is, by what means can a human enter a place, most holy or not, and be transformed into lightning like being, radiant like a shining rainbow?

The breastplate, called the Essen, was made of gold and had 12 precious gems fixed to it that shone like a rainbow when the sunlight penetrated the gems.

In Aristeas (97), a book written c. 130 B.C., there is described the breastplate, “called the ‘oracle’, to which are attached ‘twelve stones’ of different kinds, set in gold, given the names of the patriarchs in what was the original order, each stone flashing its own natural distinctive color”.

And mixing as one as a rainbow, I would add.

A fuller explanation of the operation of this “oracle” is given by Josephus in his Jewish Antiquities 3:215-17:

By means of the twelve stones, which the high priest wore upon his breast stitched into the essen, God foreshadowed victory to those on the eve of battle. For so brilliant a light flashed out from them before the army was yet in motion, that it was evident to the whole host that God had come to their aid. Hence it is that those Greeks who revere our practices, because they can in no way gainsay them, call the essen (“oracle”).

Putting this breast thingy in action, we can easily imagine the High Priest flashing red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet lights.

Once again, these are the colors of the rainbow.

This makes perfect sense.

As noted, when the high priest presented himself before YHWH manifested on the Ark / throne via this ‘portal’ His luminous, humanoid body was surrounded by, or filled with, rainbow light.

Therefore, Paul cannot be telling the first Christians and residents of, say, Miami, to hike it down to Nordstrom and get the latest Gucci belt, Armani breastplate and Chanel sandals, and put together an Arma Christi ensemble.

No, this armor must be metaphorical / metaphysical.

I think they are psycho-spiritual (‘coming from within’) apps that we externalize, embody or exude. They are ‘apps’ that bring the human biological transformational apparatus to life.

The ‘belt of truth’ is just that. To wear it all we have to do is speak truth. Same with the sandals of peace. If we walk in peace we walk in sandals of peace.

BTW, this is exactly the attire of the Archangel Michael, who leads the Children of Light in their battle against the Beast.

Christ also wears the Armor of God in William Holman Hunt’s The Light of the World. 


The symbolism of the priestly clothing is identified with the rainbow glory of Ezekiel 1:25-28. There appears to be a deliberate use of this description.

Here is Ezekiel’s vision:

Like the bow in a cloud on a rainy day, such was the appearance of the splendor all around. This was the appearance of the likeness of the Glory of the Lord.”

4Q405 23 ii 9

…in the midst of the appearance of majesty and the likeness of the Spirit of the Glory.

Here, we are clearly being told that the Lord’s clothing is glowing rays like a rainbow.

But what about his body?

The Dead Sea Scrolls say the angels taught the Essenes the divine technology or theurgy of human transformation. This resulted in a metamorphosis or change in form. Matte human flesh was traded for shining, RAINBOW, celestial or angelic flesh and a return to our original state of being. This transformation is symbolized by the garb of the high priest, the Armor of God.

This story finds an exact parallel to the Tibetan traditions about the perfection and realization of our luminous and pure primordial state of being. In this practice the frequency of the human body is accelerated and spun into a vortex of energy that manifests as pure five colored rainbow light, leaving behind only hair, toe and fingernails, which have no nerves to be transmuted. This is called the Great Perfection.

As Paul says, the use of this spiritual technology forms a ‘shield of faith’, a suit of cosmic armor or a ‘second skin’ that seals and protects us and also permits access to realms off limits to humans clothed only in ordinary skin.

In psycho-spiritual terms he is telling the Ephesians to activate their crown chakra, open their heart, speak truth and to walk in peace…in order to enter the higher realms. This will produce a new zeal from within you and provide protection or a seal against the ‘devil’ (and A.I., too).

Opening this Seal and putting on the Zeal is my quest. If it is yours, please continue.


As I first discussed in my 2012 book, “The Secret of Sion,” ‘armor’ is a c. 14th century word from the Latin arma (‘gear’) that means “defensive covering worn in combat’, but also ‘means of protection’.

The prophet Isaiah uses the body armor as metaphor for righteousness (Isaiah 59:17). He put on righteousness as his breastplate, and the helmet of salvation on his head; he put on the  garments of vengeance and wrapped himself in zeal as in a cloak.

Zeal means great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of something. It is synonymous with passion, elan, fire.

A seal is sign. It signifies security. It authenticates. At any given moment the human soul can connect with the Divine Glory and envelop itself in this shining six-fold Seal/cloak of the Light Warrior.

It is our intrinsic nature to awaken the Zeal Seal, if you will.


As I further developed in The Skingularity Is Near, Paul’s letter also makes clear that the reason we seek to put on this miracle power Zeal Seal or second skin of rainbow light is not just to improve the human body and as a sign that we live a righteous and holy (whole) life, but also to protect ourselves from predatory “powers” and “spiritual forces of evil” in the ‘hierarchy‘ of the ‘heavenly realms’ that seek to impede our rise.

Paul is telling us to follow the mystical Way of Christ, the Way of Love, and put on the Armor of God to counter an alien threat.

Who (or what and where) are these principalities, powers, rulers (‘archons’) and authorities who Paul warns come from “high places” or “heavenly realms”?

Modern UFO researchers claim that they are predatory aliens from outer space who wield super advanced technology (‘a thousand years in advance of our own’). This invisible and predatory alien race hides behind the veil of human history.

Gnostic writings from the 1st century AD discovered in Nag Hammadi, Egypt in 1945 contain warnings and descriptions of the alien predators (they called Archons) who see themselves as rulers of humanity…or the human mind, anyway. Jesus spoke of them and advised how to avoid them.

Human resistance to the Archon intrusion depends on getting our story straight about who we are as spiritual beings and what we are capable of doing spiritually speaking.

We must put on the Armor of God, which, ultimately, is the Rainbow Light Body.


In the closing of The Skingularity is Near, I shared insights about the Predators from Yaqui sorcerer, Don Juan, as documented by Carlos Castenada in his book “The Active Side of Infinity.”

Like the Gnostics and the apostle Paul, Don Juan taught that there is an alien predator that thinks of (and treats) humans as property. Don Juan believed they use(d) humans as a food source and can overlay the human psyche in order to keep us dumbed down and unaware of their influence.

However, it is possible, he says, to dislodge them through discipline. By allowing ourselves to be immersed in destructive emotions: fear, anxiety, anger, strife, jealousy, competitiveness, the dog-eat-dog mentality we hold at minimum what Don Juan calls our “shining coat of awareness”, thus serving the alien agenda. This “shining coat” is the Armor of God or the Rainbow Light Body.

Don Juan says we can rebuild our “shining coat” and no longer be under the influence of those dark forces by removing the “self” from our focus of existence.

This is Essene gnosticism and Jewish mysticism as pure as it gets. It speaks to the heart of my work on the Rainbow Body of Light. This is called the perfect garment by the Gnostics, who claimed that the Archons would not be able to see us once we put on these garments. As the Gospel of Philip says:

“The powers (archons) do not see those who are clothed in the perfect light, and consequently are not able to detain them. One will clothe himself in this light sacramentally in the union.”

The Gospel of Philip continues: “Not only will they be unable to detain the perfect man, but they will not be able to see him, for if they see him, they will detain him. There is no other way for a person to acquire this quality except by putting on the perfect light and he too becoming perfect light.”

In my view, the ‘perfect light’ is the Rainbow Light Body.

Don Juan taught (spiritual) discipline makes the glowing coat of awareness unpalatable to the predator.

“The result is that the predators become bewildered. An inedible glowing coat of awareness is not part of their cognition, I suppose. After being bewildered, they don’t have any recourse other than refraining from continuing their nefarious task.”

He continued, saying, “If the predators don’t eat our glowing coat of awareness for a while, it will keep on growing. Simplifying this matter to the extreme, I can say that sorcerers, by means of their discipline, push the predators away long enough to allow their glowing coat of awareness to grow beyond the level of the toes. Once it goes beyond the level of the toes, it grows back to its natural size.

If manifesting the full Rainbow Light Body seems intimidating, Don Juan’s words offer us encouragement. To protect ourselves from the Predator we may only need to raise it to the level just beyond the toes!

“But when it is revealed,” says the Gospel of Philip, “then the perfect light will flow out on every one. And all those who are in it will receive the chrism (the oil). Then the slaves will be free and the captives ransomed”.

Don Juan says that the alien predators are the way the universe tests us.

Whether or not one believes in predators, there is no question that the humanity is being tested now. Decisions will soon have to made.
