In the first half, author and filmmaker Jay Weidner talked about the entities known as archons, as well as his research into the mysteries, and mythic back stories of Mount Shasta (featured in his latest movie “Shasta“). Archons were described in the ancient Nag Hammadi texts as parasitic off-world beings who came to Earth and invaded the minds of certain humans, and over the years, many of these invaded humans have risen to positions of power throughout society, Weidner stated. The Archons try to create situations with as much bloodshed, agony, and chaos as possible, as they feed off human fear, he explained. “The Gnostics would tell us this was not going on before the Archon invasion of about 3,500 to 6,000 years ago…and this is the cause of all of our strife,” he added.
The Indians have long said that the “Shining Ones” live up on Mount Shasta, a volcano in Northern California, which has huge lava tubes extending for miles in all directions. Lore has it that there’s an alien base in the mountain, and there may be a variety of cryptozoological creatures that live in the tubes, such as Bigfoot, that come out at night, said Weidner. There is also the legend that a lost group of humans or “relic population,” who escaped from an earlier civilization such as Lemuria, lives hidden underground or in the tubes of Shasta, he shared.
