The Fallen Goddess Scenario in Nine Episodes
Welcome to the landing page of Nemeta dedicated to the Home Story. You will find here the complete text of all Episodes, plus definitions of terms, expansion, and summary.
On this page you find the nine-episode rendering of the FGS as it is delivered to those who subscribe to sophianicmyth.org. The episodes appear in order in the unit panel. You reach this screen from the link on the main menu panel for Nemeta. Although it appears as a course, the Home Story is an unique stand-alone feature of the School, no number indicated.
Over the years I assigned different numbers to this material, such as FGS 1.0 and FGS 1.5 to establish some kind of fixed identity to the narrative which is always ongoing and expanding. In future I will refer to the nine-episode story you see here as the Classic rendering. Additionally, there is another version in progress which can be designated as FGS 1.18 simply to highlight that it expands the narrative into 18 episodes. Lets call that the Premium Rendering. These episodes are on private setting with the aim of releasing them as they are completed although I cannot say when or even if that task will be accomplished.
For the purposes of the Gold Card, I simply want to inform you that Course 2 Sophianic Cosmology does not present the narrative. You find it exclusively here. There is a lot of material about the story, its origin with the Magians, earlier versions from metahistory.org, the recovery process, plot changes such as the Christos/Theleté problem and the Symbiont, comparative studies relating the Sophianic myth to other native narratives, and more. All that material can be found in Course 2, separate from the straightforward telling of the myth which you find here. Plus, of course, the expansion, terms, and summary for each episode.
I have now recorded the spoken versions of the episodes Reading of the Fallen Goddess Scenario 1.0
In his long career of teaching comparative mythology, JLL has explained that all myths are racial insofar as they all arise from specific peoples living in certain regions of the earth and speaking certain languages. It can be helpful to agree, for the purpose of education and discussion, that the human species is a singular entity that propagates through a spectrum of races. There is one human species that develops into many races. Consistent with the Gnostic definition of the Anthropos, humans are anthropines, members of a single and distinct species like canines and felines. The Home Story describes the origin of the Anthropos in a way no other myth does. But human animals never appear in a pure anthropine expression, only as racial variants. Consider milk that has been homogenized, pasteurized, and flavored. That is not the same as raw milk, right out of the cow.
No one living on the earth today, or who has ever lived, presents the organic expression of the “raw milk” anthropine. That fact raises the question: If all myths that describe the origin of humanity and the purpose of life on earth come from certain races, do those race-specific myths actually describe the origin of the entire human species or only the origin of the race that produced them? JLL has explored this issue in a series of ten talks, Mythology 101 on YouTube. His conclusion is that only two “origin myths” describe, or claim to describe, anthropine origins. All the others exclusively describe the origin of the people who produced them, Japanese, Aztec, Chinese, Polynesian, Scandinavian, etc. They are myths of the “first peoples” of the race that produced them.
Nevertheless, the two generic and inclusive narratives of human origins also had to be produced by specific races. The racial stock who produced the Home Story were Proto-Aryan people from the Caucasian mountains at the northern boundary of modern-day Iran. Hence, they were ancient, prehistoric Persians. The priesthood or spiritual elite responsible for the sacred narrative of Sophia were traditionally known as Magians, or Magi. In the ancient Avestan language of Persia, the name for Sophia was Anahita, Areydvi in the oldest version. This name means “moist.” A correlated name can be found in Slavic mythology: Mat Zemlya, “moist mother earth.” Of course, this is merely one of dozens of such correlates or cognates. The root mat (mother; also, measure) occurs in a second Persian name for Sophia, Spandarmat, “vibrant expanse of the mother power.” The Indo-European root spanda means “tremor, pulsation, expulsion.” The FGS episodes begin with “Once Upon a Tremor.”
So, the Home Story is the product of the religious imagination of a specific racial stock, even though it does not merely explain the origin of the people who produced it, but of the human species in its entirety. See the Orientation to the Home Story, text and talk on sophianicmyth.org.

The Three Ss
The FGS/Home Story is the centerpiece and foundation of the living Gnosis today. This unique sacred narrative illustrates a fundamental truth about the human species: the default setting of the human mindset is animistic. Animism is not merely the belief that everything is alive, it is the direct perception of how that is so. In its full scope as well as in every detail, the Home Story describes the animated and animating powers of the cosmos at large, reaching to the galactic core, and of nature in the terrestrial habitat. Those who engage with this story enter upon a life-long journey of discovery. During that journey, many wonders and many perspectives come into view. Insight into the sources of life deepens and grows ever more precise in its beauteous detail. Central to it all there is the living presence of the Aeonic Mother, Sophia. Fondly known as the Planetary Animal Mother, PAM.
Devotees of the Wisdom Goddess always keep in sight that singular power and presence. To do so, they apply the formula of the three Ss:
The Wisdom Goddess is the Source of life,
the Setting for life,
and her Story is the supreme guiding narrative for human activity, creative expression, self-discovery, and morals.
