The Gnostic Bythos is that of a Monad, though I know it does not have benevolent connotations. Disregarding any sense of goodness/morality/仁, in what ways is it not synonymous with that of the Daoistic Yuanshi Tianzun?
And Sophia, wisdom, maybe capacity to discern, in what ways is this not synonymous with Lingbao Tianzun?
Thank you in advance.
Some rough definitions-
Gnosticism, group of heretical Christian belief system;
Bythos: Gnostic Monad, 'God of Abyss'
Sophia: Gnostic personification of soul/intellect, 'God of Wisdom'
Daojiao, set of Chinese thought based on Laozi and ZhouYi;
Yuanshi Tianzun: 'Principle Beginning Heavenly Lord', presents the Wuji, which I am conjecturing is a Monad
Lingbao Tianzun: 'Spiritual Treasure Heavenly Lord', presents the Taiji, the space within the Wuji that has form
