I just ran across a video I saw a few months ago and felt was an important contribution to understanding what’s going on in our world, with all the environmental and economic and social justice catastrophes, including mind control.
It’s called “Our Masters – the Archons,” and details the Gnostic texts that describe these inorganic beings which act as parasites on the human mind, which we can only survive with spiritual practice.
Part 1 begins here (only 14 minutes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6eXqotol1s
It begins with the gnostic writings predating Christ (who was a Gnostic, encouraging people to practice personal spiritual work rather than submit to any hierarchy) discovered in Nag Hammadi and suppressed, of course, by the Church of Rome.

I read more about the Archons, including opinions by Jacques Vallee, whom I strongly admire as an early and minority voice in the UFO/alien debates:
Interestingly, this Gnostic insight accords closely with the view of Jacques Vallee, who maintains that ET/cyborgs probably belong to the local planetary realm. Vallee also proposes [in Messengers of Deception] that the ET/UFO enigma is a “spiritual control system,” a phenomenon that “behaves like a conditioning process” [mind control]. This is exactly what Gnostics said about the Archons: they can affect our minds by subliminal conditioning techniques.
And further on:
Delving into the Gnostic materials, it is quite a shock to discover that ancient seers detected and investigated the problem of alien intrusion during the first century CE, and certainly well before. (The Mysteries date from many centuries before the Christian Era.)
What is amazing about the Gnostic theory of the Archons is not only the cosmological background (explaining the origin of these entities and the reason for their enmeshment with humanity), but the specificity of information on the alien m.o., describing how they operate and what they want from us. For one thing, Gnostics taught that these entities envy us and feed on our fear. Above all, they attempt to keep us from claiming and evolving our “inner light,” the gift of divine intelligence within.
While I would not claim that Gnostic teachings on the Archons, or what remains of such teachings, have all the answers to the ET/UFO enigma, one thing is clear: they present a coherent and comprehensive analysis of alien intrusion, as well as specific practices for resisting it. They are far more complete and sophisticated than any theory in discussion today.
In short, the ancient seers of the Mysteries in Europe and the Levant seem to have accomplished 2000 years ago what many of us have been attempting to do since 1947: figure out who the ETs are, where they originate, how they relate to us, and most important of all, how we ought to relate to them.
