I am the first and the last. I am the honored one and the scorned one.
I am the whore, and the holy one. I am the wife and the virgin.
I am the mother and the daughter….I am she whose wedding is great,
and I have not taken a husband….I am knowledge, and ignorance.

-THUNDER, PERFECT MIND, Gnostic poem, 100 A.D.
