Glossary Gnosticism / Term

Pharmakeia

Is roughly equivalent to witchcraft. Contrary to the perception of some, gnosticism is against any form of sympathetic magic or divination. The reason for this is not that it doesn't necessarily work, that idea is up to the individual, but that it's focus is still within the hylic and psychic spheres of thought. ESP, astrology etc are only applicable to the realm of Heimarene.
