“Bel and the Dragon, Quetzalcoatl and Xolotl, Apollo and Python, Krishna and Kaliya, Osiris and Typhon, Michael and the Red Dragon, St. George and his Dragon: these are always the individual, divine Logoi and their doubles, projected in our own psyche for our own well being.
We will emphasise that killing the Dragon or Venus Lucifer-Xolotl is the same as becoming his children; namely, we receive the Morning Star.
In ancient times, the dragons were the symbol of eternity and of wisdom. The hierophants of Egypt, Babylon, and India called themselves the “Sons of the Dragon and of the Serpent”. This corroborates the teachings of Universal Gnosticism.
Xolotl, the shadow or double of the Mexican Christ, Quetzalcoatl, plunging from the empyrean to our own atomic infernos, is truly extraordinary and marvellous.
Xolotl means dog as well as twin. We may also remember in this chapter that Father Sahagun states that the dog is the symbol of the fire of celestial origin.”
