  2. Originally, a demiurge was any person who worked for people, whether it was a craftsman or an official who performed certain public duties. Since the successful performance of the work required the presence of some skill or art, over time, the demiurge began to be called a master, an expert in his field, contrasting it with an ignorant, inept person or just a private person who does not know any profession. In a broader sense, any creator of something was called a demiurge, for example: the bee is the demiurge of honey, gymnastics is the demiurge of health, rhetoric is the demiurge of persuasion, etc.
    Plato. In the philosophical lexicon, the term “Demiurge” was introduced by Plato, who for the first time calls the “creator and father” of this visible cosmos the Demiurge.The demiurge creates only eternal entities: the lower gods, the universal soul and the immortal part of the human soul, the four cosmic elements (earth, fire, water and air), the heavenly bodies and the body of the cosmos as a whole; he also creates time as a moving likeness of eternity. The Demiurge provides the creation of mortal beings necessary for the fullness of the universe to the lower gods, handing them “the seeds and rudiments of creation.”
    Numenius of Apamea identifies the Demiurge with the divine Mind emanating from “God the Father,” defined as intelligible being, good, and one. The demiurge is the ” second God.” One part of him, like the Mind, is always turned to the Father, and the other is immersed in matter, which he forms in accordance with the intelligible forms perceived in the Father. Numenius compares this duality of the Demiurge to the position of a helmsman on a ship who, together with his ship, is at the mercy of a raging sea, but at the same time looks up to the fixed stars, making a safe path among the waves.
    In Gnosticism, with its radical dualism and belief in the original imperfection of this world, the doctrine of an evil or unreasonable Demiurge arises.´┐ŻAmong the many epithets that the Gnostics give to the Demiurge are “Father of those on the right” and”Demiurge of those on the left.” By” those on the right “Gnostics mean disembodied entities like the Demiurge himself, and by” those on the left ” they mean bodies.

  3. The fact is that the demiurge is dual, because he created this imperfect world full of evil.

    Some say that this is not a real demiurge, but only an insignificant deceiver who defiled the original purity, creating this world and man.

    Some believe that evil does not exist, and the duality of God is an illusion unworthy of a higher understanding of people.
