Egregore (also egregor) is an occult concept representing a “thoughtform” or “collective group mind”, an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people. (wikipedia article)
Is the “god” of this world mankind’s own creation?
In article (and video) I discuss the idea that mankind could not deal, emotionally, with the fact that they sinned against the all-loving Most High creator, YHWH, and so they disassociated from their true selves. This split may have created an egregore “god” that asked for sacrifices to cover sins because they felt like they needed a scapegoat.
Israelites Have Made Gods That Ask For Sacrifices They Call “YHWH”
We see when the Israelites were taken away from Egypt that while Moses was speaking to the real YHWH on the mountain, receiving the commandments to not kill and to love one another, the Israelites decided to make up their own “god” who asked for sacrifices.
In the following passage YHWH is upset that they’re not listening to Him, and basically tells them to continue to do what they’re doing, because they are so deaf and won’t listen to Him anyway. This is similar to when they grumbled for quail, and He finally sent them quail and they ate it and died of a plague because of their lust for animal flesh (Numbers 11).
Jeremiah 7:20 Therefore thus saith the Lord YHWH; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched. 21 Thus saith YHWH of hosts, the God of Israel; Put your burnt offerings unto your sacrifices, and eat flesh. 22 For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: 23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. 24 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward. 25 Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them: 26 Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers.
They would not listen to YHWH when He told them to just walk out the commandments (and the commandments are not burdensome 1 John 5:3), so they decided to make their own god “in the imagination of their evil heart,” and this imagined god asked for sacrifices. Rather than come up with a new name for their god of sacrifices, they just decided to call it “YHWH,” which is why we have two different “YHWH”s written about in the bible. There’s the YHWH who never commanded sacrifices (the one Moses spoke to) and there’s the “god” that the people made from their own imaginations.
Exodus 32:1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. 2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me. 3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. 4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to YHWH. 6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play….. 25 And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:) 26
Some commentaries debate about the meaning of the word “naked” and suggest it means they were defenseless, or ashamed, but “rising up to play” is a euphemism for “having an orgy” or “having sex.” You can see the various translations of that verse on bible-hub. If we put these ideas together, we can paint a picture of a fertility sacrifice “feast”.
From Fertility Cults of Canaan concerning the worship of Baal (the lord) and his consort Asherah:
At times of crisis, Baal’s followers sacrificed their children, apparently the firstborn of the community, to gain personal prosperity. The Bible called this practice “detestable” (Deut. 12:31, 18:9-10). God specifically appointed the tribe of Levi as his special servants, in place of the firstborn of the Israelites, so they had no excuse for offering their children (Num. 3:11-13). The Bible’s repeated condemnation of child sacrifice shows God’s hated of it, especially among his people. Asherah was worshiped in various ways, including through ritual sex. Although she was believed to be Baal’s mother, she was also his mistress. Pagans practiced “sympathetic magic”, that is, they believed they could influence the gods’ actions by performing the behavior they wished the gods to demonstrate. Believing the sexual union of Baal and Asherah produced fertility, their worshipers engaged in immoral sex to cause the gods to join together, ensuring good harvests. This practice became the basis for religious prostitution (1 Kings 14:23-24). The priest or a male member of the community represented Baal. The priestess or a female members of the community represented Asherah. In this way, God’s incredible gift of sexuality was perverted to the most obscene public prostitution.
When they would sacrifice their children, they would play loud music (to not be disturbed by the cries of the children). If you sacrificed your firstborn or “only-begotten” chosen child, you might want to start on having another child right away. This is why they may have been naked. It was likely all one big fertility “feast.”
Micah 6:7 Will YHWH be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? 8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth YHWH require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
YHWH never asked for them to sacrifice their children. But, rather, He wanted them to love mercy, and walk humbly with Him, they made a “god” that would be pleased with rams, oil, and firstborn children so they didn’t have to stop sinning themselves. That’s the theory in this article anyway.
We Were Created In the Image of God
Though evolutionists suggest we evolved from apes, the bible shows we were made in the image or form of God. According to the bible, we’re not evolving, we’re devolving into animals. Our original state in the garden was one of looking like God. Eve came out of Adam, like the Holy Spirit (or “wisdom” or “sophia” personified) came out of YHWH. When we follow the Holy Spirit and get holy (set apart from the world) we become one with the “Body of Christ,” the “Standing One.” Then, we are in the image of God, no longer the image of the beast. The bible suggests when we follow the Anti-Christ Spirit and go back to sinning we’re like a dog returning to its vomit, and a pig wallowing in the mire. We become like beasts when we sin.
When we become children of God, we get “God’s seed.” When we become children of the devil, we get the “serpent seed” inside of us, that is the “Anti-Christ Spirit”
1 John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not. 2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as he is. 3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as He is pure. 4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5 And ye know that He was manifested to take away our sins; and in Him is no sin. 6 Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. 7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for His seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
Originally there was no sin, but when people started to sin, they devolved into “animals.” This is why the Jewish people refer to the “goyim” (those who don’t follow the commandments) as “animals.” Often those who say things like that are hypocrites and aren’t following the law of YHWH either. But the idea is that if you keep the commandments of YHWH you are not considered an “animal” but are considered “man” (“Adam“) who is the “image of God.” If you go back to sinning, you are considered to be in the “image of the beast” because you’re acting on animal instincts, rather than being in control over those animalistic behaviors. God is in charge over the animals, as we should be over our animalistic behaviors to look like God. If we let the animalistic urges control us, we’re slaves to sin, and are no longer in the form of God.
John 8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the slave of sin.
The true gospel is that we can stop sinning, empty ourselves of our animalistic urges, mortify our fleshy desires, and become like God, as little ‘g’ gods with our Heavenly Father’s seed inside rather than the “serpent seed.”

The Standing One
In the Recognitions of Clement, Simon the Magician is claiming to be the messiah, as a sort of Anti-Christ figure.
“Zacchai had written to him from Caesarea, that one Shimon, a Samaritan magician, was subverting many of our people, asserting that he was the Standing One—that is, in other words, the Moshiach—and the great power of El Elyon, which is superior to the Creator of the world; at the same time that he showed many miracles, and made some doubt, and others fall away to him.” Recognitions of Clement Chapter LXXII: Kefa Sent to Caesarea
“This Shimon’s father was Antonius and his mother Rachel. By tribe he is a Shomroni from a village of the Get tones; by profession a magician yet exceedingly well trained in the Greek literature; desirous of glory, and boasting above all the human race, so that he wishes himself to be believed to be an exalted power, which is above YHWH the Creator, and to be thought to be the Moshiach, and to be called the Standing One. And he uses this name as implying that he can never be dissolved, asserting that his flesh is so compacted by the power of his divinity, that it can endure to eternity. Hence, therefore, he is called the Standing One, as though he cannot fall by any corruption.” Recognitions of Clement Chapter VII: Shimon HaMag: His History
So, the people of the time believed that another name for the Messiah was the “Standing One,” and it makes sense if animals are close to the ground. When we start acting like “men’ rather than “animals” and keep the commandments, we can stand up tall. See the playlist on the “Standing One” for more information. David H’Notsari goes through some of the verses where the righteous in the bible are connected to “standing” language.
“The world” is blind and needs saving. When “the world” is brought up in scripture, it’s not referring to the earth.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not His son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. 2 The word was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by the word; and without the word was not any thing made that was made. 4 In the word was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
2 Corinthians 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; 2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world (age) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
The word for “world” in 2 Corinthians 4 is the word for “age” and there is another word for “world” which is kosmos which refers to people. According to Biblehub, it can refer to inhabitants of the earth, men, the human race or the ungodly multitude.
John 17:14 I have given them Your word and the world has hated them; for they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I am not asking that You take them out of the world, but that You keep them from the evil one.
The earth can’t hate people, so we can see “the world” refers to a group of people.
1 John 4:4 You, little children, are from God and have overcome them, because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. That is why they speak from the world’s perspective, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. That is how we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of deception
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
1 John 2:15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world — the desires of the flesh, the desires of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God remains forever.
The world is a group of people, the god of this age (the age when they’re passing away) is blinding their minds, because they love evil and don’t want their sins to be made known.
2 Corinthians 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world (age) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
So who is their “god?” Just what or who is blinding them?
What is an Egregore?
The explanation from Wikipedia is as follows (note the references to “the Watchers” from the book of Enoch:
Egregore (also egregor) is an occult concept representing a “thoughtform” or “collective group mind”, an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people. The symbiotic relationship between an egregore and its group has been compared to the more recent, non-occult concepts of the corporation (as a legal entity) and the meme.
The first author to adapt “egregore” in a modern language seems to be the French poet Victor Hugo, in La Légende des siècles (“The Legend of the Ages”), First Series, 1859, where he uses the word “égrégore” first as an adjective, then as a noun, while leaving the meaning obscure. The author seems to have needed a word rhyming with words ending in the sound “or”. It would not be the only example of word creation by Victor Hugo. However, the word is the normal form that the Greek word ἑγρήγορος (Watcher) would take in French. This was the term used in the Book of Enoch for great angel-like spirits.
Eliphas Lévi, in Le Grand Arcane (“The Great Mystery”, 1868) identifies “egregors” with the tradition concerning the “Watchers”, the fathers of the nephilim, describing them as “terrible beings” that “crush us without pity because they are unaware of our existence.”
The concept of the egregore as a group thoughtform was developed in works of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the Rosicrucians and has been referenced by writers such as Valentin Tomberg, notably in his anonymously-penned book, Meditations on the Tarot.
And on Illuminati-news.com, they give 4 different definitions:
- An energized astral form produced consciously or unconsciously by human agency. In particular, (a) a strongly characterized form, usually an archetypal image, produced by the imaginative and emotional energies of a religious or magical group collectively, or (b) an astral shape of any kind, deliberately formulated by a magician to carry a specific force.
- …from a Greek word meaning “watcher.” A thought-form created by will and visualization. A group egregore is the distinctive energy of a specific group of magicians who are working together, creating and building the same thought-form or energy-form.
- Any symbolic pattern that has served as a focus for human emotion and energy will build up an egregore of its own over time, and the more energy that is put into such a pattern, the more potent the egregore that will form around it. The gods and goddesses of every religion, past and present, are at the centers of vast egregore charged with specific kinds of power. This power is defined by, and contacted through, the traditional symbolism of the deity in question.
- An egregore is an angel, sometimes called watcher; in Hebrew the word is ir, and the concept appears in The Book of Enoch…. Thus, Irim, the city of the Nephilim is again linked with the Book of Enoch, since the Nephilim, according to that Book, were the sons of the Irim (the egregores.)….Although the Irim, the egregores, are angels on both sides of the camp – fallen angels as well as faithful ones.
Did Mankind Create Demons?
When we disassociate from ourselves during periods of “trauma” we create separate personalities. A child who’s been sexually abused by her father will have the one personality who got abused, and then create another personality who didn’t. It’s the one who didn’t get abused that will show up at school and be able to interact with people “normally” at a parent-teacher conference. Though this is an act, because their personality has been split. Part of them has disassociated away, but it’s not gone, it’s just not showing up during this time period. This is how Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) or Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) work. The person creates other “personas” to show to the world. They have a fragmented personality.
Dissociation is an adaptive response to threat and is a form of “freezing”. It is a strategy that is often used when the option of fighting or running (fleeing) is not an option. We shut down to draw less attention to ourselves, or in extreme cases, play dead by leaving our body and mentally and emotionally shutting down. It is important to know that dissociation is a normal response in the face of trauma. It can become problematic when Dissociation becomes the only and primary method of coping with situations that are experienced as traumatic. It is important to be able to recognize it when it is happening so as to learn how to bring yourself back to the present.
When mankind first sinned, they had no where to go, nothing they could do, the Spirit of the creator was right there with them. They couldn’t hide. They disassociated from themselves rather than accept that they made a mistake.
They were prideful. Rather than admit a weakness, and repent and try to stop sinning, they blamed YHWH for making them prone to sin, scapegoating onto Him, and making it seem like there was no way they could have been sin-less.
They could not face the fact that they could stop sinning, as they didn’t want their sins to be made known, so they split, disassociated from themselves, and said it was something else. It was their flesh that was weak, they can’t help it. They may have created demons (or watchers) to convict them of their sin by splitting from themselves… the spirit is not separate.
Because they didn’t believe that they could stop sinning, but knew their sins had to be washed away, it seems likely that they invented the idea of blood sacrifices and a god who would accept those.
The idea of us sacrificing our animal natures (as living sacrifices) was the light of the world that they could not comprehend, so they started to sacrifice real animals, and then “the lamb of God” Jesus (Yehoshua).
2 Corinthians 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world (age) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
In this old world (age), the gospel is hidden to people who want to stay in their sin. Mankind, as the demiurge, seems to have created this egegore (false god who is no god at all) because of their want for there to be a god who asks for animal or human sacrifices (instead of them giving living sacrifices of animalistic behaviors), But in the New Age, the gospel will be revealed so the body of Christ can come back together again.
