First Cosmos / First Creation


Occurrences:  First Cosmos - 10   /  First Creation - 12    

First Reference:  4th Endowment 2:8  /  Enlightenment 1:48


And when God was full completed in the making of the new dimension, they called out into the Deep of the First Cosmos, to take to themselves the matter unformed and uncreated, and passing the matter through the living streams, it was itself enlivened;

4th Endowment 2:8


Now Yaldabaoth moved out away from the kingdoms and glories of Heaven, and flung the restless presence forever and anon across the face of the Deep; and piercing the boundaries of space and time, he discovered the worlds of the First Creation.

Summary:  The ‘First Creation’ or ‘First Cosmos’ arose from the workings of the Universal Consciousness, the ‘Great Intender’, known as Areta.[1] After perhaps billions of failures, the cosmos of the First Creation was the first to successfully harbor life and, of more profound significance, intelligent life and the epiphenomenon of mind. It was amidst this intelligent life, as represented by the human species, that the miraculous advent of soul first occurred. This first soul, which arose from the mortal life of a man named Kronus Maximillius, eventually united with Areta, thus marking the advent of First God (3rd Endowment).


With the exception of the First Cosmos, all other universes were created by God (W:18:22-26; 4:2:1-13), and established with laws that more accurately reflected the virtuous and noble will of loving Heavenly Parents. By comparison, the cosmos of the First Creation was (is) a very violent and chaotic environment not bound by the laws of God, but ruled by the blind laws of nature. It was this cosmos that gave rise to the birth and evolution of God, on a world referred to in scripture as the ‘world of the First Creation’, or ‘the world of the First Power.’



The Replication God’s Beginning


According to scripture, we are currently experiencing life in a replicated timeline of the original world of the First Power and the cosmos of the First Creation (E:14:7; 1:3:31; First Track).


Throughout the eternities, First God (as represented by Areta and The One) continued to progress and evolve, yet they remained intent on someday returning to the First Cosmos to save those that were lost during the violent and calamitous unfolding of the earth’s initial timeline.


And in an age both far and distant, we shall come again to yonder world, and by such powers as we shall increase between ourselves, we shall find some means to save this cruel but broken world.

For in our love for each the other shall time itself yield; causing that in some distant morrow, we might yet reclaim the world of First Man; to create in them such soul as they permit, being fashioned through some gentler yearning which would itself break in pieces the chains of death and darkness.”

3rd Endowment 32:31-32


Seeing therefore the passing away of all my beginning, even I did continue on, being the only one of my kind; and I did resolve most firmly within that in the day of my power I would return again unto my own, and by some subtle design set forth the hand to redeem the whole of First Man.

1st Endowment 10:8


According to scripture, the cosmos we observe in the night sky is that of the First Creation, and this very Earth is the world of the First Power. Furthermore, we are involved in the inaugural replication of the timeline from which First God evolved (see First Track). This grand design — devised by The One and Areta — was eternities in the making, and incorporated the introduction of several new developments pertaining to the pathway of eternal progression and exaltation. Such aspects included the bringing forth of a Dark Nemesis (later known as Yaldabaoth, the Chief Demiurge), as well as establishing a new order of Gods and Goddesses, referred to as the Ahgendai. The overarching intention behind these efforts is established by The One:


...for this alone is my only will, to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of every man and every woman till they should stand as one within the heart of God.

6th Endowment 2:21



Significant points:


• This universe was not created by God, but rather, arose from the workings of a Cosmic Consciousness (Areta) whose primary objective at the time was bringing forth life. God did not create this universe because at the time of its creation, God did not exist.


• Life preceded God; God evolved from life through natural evolutionary processes. Anything which is said to exist, must have a beginning. God had his beginning as a human, living on this planet. (See: Five Radical Propositions)



The First Cosmos: Realm of the Demiurgos


It was predetermined by The One that the dwelling place of Yaldabaoth and the Demiurgos be somewhere other than the creations of God (E:5:37). The only time and place that fit this criteria was the realms of the First Cosmos. After Yaldabaoth’s escape from the Abyss, and his first attack against the Heavenly realms (see Enlightenment, 5th Endowment), the Chief Demiurge was led back in time by the Azraella to the cosmos of the First Creation. The Demiurgos established dominion throughout the First Cosmos and over the planet from which the First God evolved — the world of the First Power. The Demiurge’s arrival from the future and subsequent interaction in the First Cosmos created a new timeline, a replication of the original from which God first evolved.

In a relatively recent development, the cosmos of Heaven (known as the Surinatha) was connected to the cosmos of the First Creation via a great vortex (6:12:2). With the creation of the vortex, the Surinatha began to revolve around the cosmos of the First Creation. (See AZC — Eternal Round: 4th Understanding: Mahaliel).
