  1. Gnosis – knowledge, a certain “revelation” that allows you to live a different material life. Gnostics (I will take Christianity) teach that the material world is the creation of an evil Demiurge, which means that the goal of a Gnostic is to hear the words of Jesus (various gospels – from Thomas, from Mary), which will help him overcome all the adversities of the material world – the goal is to free the non-corporeal essence (soul). Spiritual rebirth, catharsis-it can be called in different ways, but the essence is the same.
