In Valentinian Gnostic Theology, there are three kinds of people in the world.

Hylics, Psychics and Pneumatiucs.

Valentinus taught that Hylics are not technically real humans, they are purely materialists and only run off their base functions

Psychics are the next level up, they are the people who follow "Exoteric" religion. they have some knowledge (Gnosis) of the immaterial world but still fall for the illusion/maya. They can be saved from Yaldabaoth given the right environment.

Pneumatics are the people who are either fully awakened or are a Neophyte currently undergoing initiation. They are fully capable of achieving Gnosis and can escape the Samsara

>> No.14382907

Sometimes there is crossover between Exoteric religious followers and Atheist materialist.

There is no syncretic school aside from wacko ones like Schuon's Maryamiyya. If you want a real initiation into Sufism you'll have to become a devout Muslim. If you want a real initation into traditional Advaita you'd have to go to India and abandon your posessions and former life and become an ascetic monk. The Inchegiri Sampradaya teaches fairly traditional Shaivite non-dualism mixed with some Nath influence and have been known to initiate random people who seek them out even without those people becoming ascetics but you'd have to become fluent in Marathi for this to work since almost all of them don't speak English.
