Source of GNOSIS, GNOSTICISM, . . . . is Turkish



Interestingly, many Indo-European (IE) words define their own meaning
in Turkish with a Turkish word or phrase that has been anagrammatized
into that Indo-European word. Some IE words having double meanings are
due to the fact that original Turkish texts with different meanings
but similar linguistic structure were anagrammatized into one word in
IE languages. For example, Turkish "gözetmek" meaning "to observe"
and "göz etmek" meaning "to wink" are two different concepts but they
are very similar in format. Thus these two Turkish expressions can be
anagrammatized into one word having both of the original meanings.
Secretive linguists did this kind of activity but never revealed it.

Gnosis and Gnosticism are such words that have been widely used in
theological and philosophical discussions. There is an air of
confusion about them because source source and true identity have not
been explained well before. I would like to present an understanding
of GNOSIS and GNOSTICISM and show why they mean "knowing" or
"knowledge". These words are attributed wrongly to the Greek language
by the European writers as their world is so well surrounded and
limited by the Greek, Jewish and Latin worlds. For them there was no
other world, particularly no Turkish world at ancient times.
Evidently, anti-Tur/Turk feeling started far earlier in history than
the events of the last millennium A.D. The ancient Tur/Turk world has
been almost completely destroyed so that it is not visible and is not
referred to anymore.

GNOSTICISM is defined as: "A philosophico-religious movement of
pre-Christian time and later, having several forms, Pagan and
Christian, all of which were characterized by the central doctrine
that emancipation came through knowledge, gnosis, the possession of
which saved the initiates from the clutch of matter." [1]

Encyclopaedica Britannica writes the following: "GNOSTICISM, derived
from the Greek word "gnostikos" (one who has "gnosis", "knowledge" ,
is a term used by modern scholars to designate a religious movement of
late antiquity, with which the Christian church came into contact.
Gnosticism is not primarily or exclusively a Christian heresy but
rather a religion in its own right, which is also known from pagan
sources such as the Corpus Hermeticum and the Oracula Chaldaica, and
from the oldest sources of Jewish mysticism, which can be traced back
to the 1st and 2nd centuries A.D.. Though it is not always easy to
distinguish Gnosticism from Greek philosophy and the Christian
religion, it has certain characteristics of its own which are alien to
Greek or Christian tradition, such as the depreciation of the cosmos
and the rejection of atonement. Historically most important is
Christian Gnosticism, the systems of which can be proved to have
existed in the 2nd century and which extended into Manichaeism, a
Gnostic world religion." [2]


Additionally it is said that the name GNOSTICISM comes from the Greek
term "GNOSIS" which is defined as:"In Metaphysics, positive knowledge,
especially of spiritual truth, such was claimed by the Gnostics." [3]

GNOSIS is also defined as: "a combining form denoting "cognition", or
"recognition", as in psychognosis. Corresponding adjectives are
formed in "-gnostic."" [4]

Similarly, the term GNOSTIC [Latin "gnosticus", from Greek "gnostikos"
sagacious, from "GIGNOSKEIN" meaning to know". [5]

Thus the term GNOSIS is a word whose meaning is related to "knowledge;
learning; sense." [6] This so-called Greek term "Gnosis", however, is
actually sourced from Turkish.

Before we go into the Turkish source of Gnosis, let us first examine
the "SIS" construct found at the end of "Gnosis". This "sis"
construct, frequently, is a bogus construct designed to replace and
disguise the original Turkish "sh" sound and sometimes the original
Turkish "z" sound. The following examples will demonstrate this. Let
us look at the folowing three words contaning the "SIS construct:

"ANALYSIS" has the synonyms of: "examination, investigation, study,
explanation and understanding". Analysis is done to "understand" the
essence of any studied subject. When the term "ANALYSIS" is rewritten
as "ANLAYISS", it becomes obvious that it is an anagram of Turkish
expression "ANLAYISh", where the "SS" is really Turkish "SH", meaning
"understanding" which is the true meaning of "ANALYSIS" but one will
not find the word "understanding" in the definition of "ANALYSIS".
The definition of ANALYSIS dances around the concept of
"understanding" without actually saying the word - because Turkish
"ANLAYISh" (understanding) is the actual source for it. The
"etymology" pointing off to Greek as the source is not the truth. [7]
Thus, the "SIS" construct in this word disguises the Turkish "Sh"
sound in the original text. We see this in the word "RESISTANCE" as well.

"RESISTANCE" has the synonyms of: "opposition, impeding, blocking,
holding back, fighting back and making a stand". The Turkish word for
these concept is "DIRENISh" which explains all of them. When the term
"RESISTANCE" is rewritten as "TIRENASSCE", it becomes obvious that it
is the anagram of Turkish expression "DIRENIShCI" (dirensci) meaning
"that which opposes", "that which impedes", "that which blocks" which
is the true meaning of "resistance". Even the term "resistance" used
in electronic circuitry comes from this Turkish word. Thus, the double
"S" found in the "SIS" construct within the word "resistance" is again
a distortion of the Turkish letter "Sh". This trick is used frequently
in Greek as well as other IE languages in anagrams of Turkish words
and phrases. It is a very effective tool for camouflaging the original
Turkish text used for the words manufactured for IE languages.

Another example of this "SIS" construct is the word GENESIS, the name
given to the first book of the Pentateuch containing an account of
creation. GENESIS is simply an anagram of Turkish word "GUNESh"
(gunes), meaning "SUN". Of course it was the "SUN" and its "SUNLIGHT"
that was the source and cause of "creation" in our solar system.
Evidently, this was well understood by the ancient Turanian "Sun
worshiping" Tur/Turk peoples. Again, pointing off the etymology of
this word to Greek is not the truthful.

Having analyzed these three words and the "SIS" construct in them, we
now have an understanding of this linguistic dilemma. Now let us
examine the term GNOSIS.

a) GNOSIS when rewritten as "GONISS", reveals itself to be an anagram
of the Turkish word "GANISh" (ganis), (ganma = anlama, kavrama,
ögrenme anlaminda) meaning "understanding, cognition, recognition".
Understanding any subject is acquiring "knowledge' about it and
therefore "it is knowing". Similarly, "cognition" and "recognition"
(Turkish "GANISh") can only be achieved by "knowing" the subject
matter. Thus "GNOSIS", meaning "knowledge" or "knowing", is a
distorted form of Turkish word "GANISh".

b) GNOSIS when rewritten as "GONISS", reveals itself as an anagram of
the Turkish word "GUNESh", (gunes), meaning "SUN" and "Sun light"
(Turkish word "GÜNES" is from Turkish "GUN + IShI" meaning "sun +
light"). The SUN is the most important celestial element in our solar
system without which knowledge would not be possible. Sunlight
enables "seeing" and "seeing" (observing) plus analysis result in
knowledge. Nothing can be seen and discerned in darkness. Thus
"GNOSIS" is the distorted form of Turkish word GUNESh meaning Sun.

Without the SUN (GÜNES) there can be no vision, no cognition, no
recognition, no knowledge and of course no human beings to talk about
all of these things. Thus GUNES is the source of all "knowing", that
is, so-called "GNOSIS". This fact has been recognized wisely and
truthfully by the Sun worshipping ancient Turanian Tur/Turk peoples
and expressed in their language of TURKISH.

c) The term GNOSSIS. when rewritten as "GONISS", is also an anagram of
Turkish word "GONUSh" (konusma), meaning "speech, language, speaking,
communication" which is the most important aspect of knowledge.
Unspoken knowledge does not exist, i.e., it is lost knowledge. If
there was no "language" there would be no knowledge to talk about.
Thus "GNOSIS is a distorted form of the Turkish word "GONUSh" (KONUS),
that is, language or speech.

That is why it is said in JOHN 1:1 that: "In the beginning the WORD
was, and the WORD was with GOD, and the Word was god. This one was in
the beginning with God. All things came into existence through him,
and apart from it not even one thing came into existence". The source
of this "Biblical" expression is from ancient Turanic civilization
expressed in Turkish. This takes place by language called "KONUSh" or
"KONUSMA" in Turkish.

Thus the term "GNOSIS" is three Turkish words, that is, "GANISh",
"GUNESh" and "GONUSh", all embedded into one word by the Greek
cabalist linguists and then introduced conveniently to the world as a
"Greek" word.

This "GANISh", "GUNESh" and "GONUSh" relationship embedded in
"GNOSIS", shows that the Turkish language and the Sun (as the number
one visible deity in the sky) RELIGION were intimately intertwined
together thus making Turkish the "SUN-LANGUAGE" ("GUNESh DILI" or

These three concepts expressed with Turkish words GANISh. GUNESh,
GONUSh and embedded into "GNOSIS" have another face to them which we
get by a second decoding of the word "GNOSIS".

Embedded in the word "GNOSIS" are Turkish expressions related to the
above definitions of this word. They can be shown as follows:

d) The term "GNOSIS", when rewritten as "GOSSIN", is clearly an
anagram of Turkish expression "GÖZSÜN" meaning "you are EYE". Eye
sees and "seeing" is "knowing", "cognition" and "recognition". Thus
EYE is one of the most important sources of "knowledge".

e) The term "GNOSIS", when rewritten as "OGISSN", is an anagram of
Turkish expression "AGISSIN" (agizsin) meaning "you are 'mouth'". This
decoded form of the word identifies "mouth" in Turkish as the speaker
of the "Word", i.e., the "Language" ("GONUS"). Without "mouth"
(Turkish "AGUZ" (AGIZ)), there can be no speech, no language, and
hence, "no knowledge".

f) The term "GNOSIS", when rewritten as "OGISSN", is also an anagram
of Turkish expression "OGUZSIN" meaning "you are OGUZ" referring to
the ancient Turanian Sky God OGUZ religion and the OGUZ people (i.e.,
TUR / TURK people). A religion is a powerful common source of
knowledge binding people to each other. Much of our understanding of
nature, ourselves, philosophy, abstract concepts, mysterious and
mystical understanding of God come from religious thinking and all of
this goes back to the ancient Turanian Universal Sky God Religion.


The term "Gnosticism" is of course related to the term "GNOSIS" that
we explained above. GNOSTICISM is also a multi-faceted term embodying
many meanings associated with "GNOSIS". The analysis of the term
GNOSTICISM is given below by way of decoding it letter-by-letter in
various ways and reading the resulting word phonetically as in Turkish.

1) GNOSTICISM, when decoded as "GONSCTI-ISM", with C=S, is an anagram
of the Turkish expression "GUNESTI ISMI" meaning "its name is "SUN".
Sun, with its light, illuminating everything that it encounters, is
the source of all knowing. Sun lights, heats, creates life, awakens,
germinates, and enables all sorts of activities that are source of
knowledge. It awakens us from sleep and enables us to observe,
examine, listen, touch, smell, feel ourselves in order to learn about
ourselves and the external world. All these things take place when we
are awake mostly in day time. In ancient world, night was mainly for
sleeping and resting. While the MOON is associated with night, the SUN
is associated with day. It is only due to Sun's light that the Moon
can faintly illuminate the night. Without the Sun "moonlight" would
not be possible. The darkness swallows up all sources of knowledge and
makes them invisible to man, hence diminishes knowledge and increases
danger for survivability. Thus the SUN is the source and cause of all
knowledge and survival.

2) GNOSTICISM, when decoded as "GONMK ISSIT", with SS=Sh, is an
anagram of Turkish expression "GANMAK IShITI" (kanmak ishidir, anlamak
ishidir, dersini, ishini, ödevini, vs. yapmak ishidir) meaning "it is
the work of understanding", that is, "it is studying, observing,
examining, testing, speaking, writing, etc.. " Studying things and
concepts in these manners in order to understand and learn them make a
person "knowing" or "knowledgable". Hence, "GNOSTICISM" is
"UNDERSTANDING" and hence, is "knowing" or "knowledge". But
"GNOSTICISM" is also the anagrammatized form of Turkish phrase "GANMAK
IShITI". Hence its origin is Turkish. Its origin is not in the Greek
language or in Christian thinking or in Jewish mysticism but rather
from the much older OGUZ religion of Turanian Tur/Turk peoples and
their Turkish language - contrary to the established misrepresentations.

This Turkish expression "GANMAK IShITI" has an alternate meaning of:
"understanding is enlightening" which again indicates that "learning"
is "knowing" and "being knowledgable". In other words , "knowledge is
light to the mind".

3) GNOSTICISM, when decrypted as "GONISSMCTI", is an anagram of
Turkish expression "GONUShMAKTI" (konusmakti, aguzdi) meaning "it is
speaking", "it is speech" or "it is language". Of course, speaking the
"word" or the "language", that is, "AGUZ" or "GONUS" (KONUSMA) are the
source of knowing and knowledge. Without the "WORD" (AGUZ), no
subject can be named and no knowledge can be expressed, Thus
knowledge is possible with "AGUZ" (mouth and speech). When one is
speaking, he/she is tranferring knowledge, and when one is listening
he/she is receiving knowledge.


All of the above analysis of "GNOSIS" and "GNOSTICISM" show that the
origin of these words is not Greek or Jewish mysticism or Christian
doctrine, but rather from the much earlier civilization of TUR/TURK
peoples and their religion, thinking and language. They have been
abducted into the Greek language like many other "Greek" words.
Attributing ancient Tur/Turk knowledge and words to people other than
Tur/Turks is misappropriation - plain and simple. The fact of the
matter is that ancient Greeks and Jews were all speaking dialects of
Turkish before they manufactured their languages from Turkish.

>From this word GNOSTICISM, one could generate many more philosophical,
religious and other knowledge-defining words all in Turkish, by way of
decoding what has been coded from Turkish into it. But in this paper,
these will suffice for the pupose of illustrating my point of view
that Indo-European and Semitic languages are artificially made up by
restructuring Turkish words and phrases into coded words. Thus the
words GNOSIS and GNOSTICISM are not Indo-European in source, but
rather Turkish in origin from the ancient Turanian religion and

In the citings above where GNOSTICISM is defined, when they say that
it was: "a philosophico-religious movement of pre-Christian time", it
is an untruthful and simplistic under statement, a put down, a
cover-up, a belittling used against the ancient Turanian Sky-God
religion and Tur/Turk people's civilization which was usurped by
Judeo-Christianity. It was the ancient Turanian Sky-Father-God,
Sun-God and Moon-God universal religion that all other "religions"
have sprung from. Similarly, It was the Turkish language from which
Indo-European and Semitic languages were made up contrary to the
established misinformation.

All of this and the Turkish language were known to the ancient
cabalistic occultists and the religious and philosphical thinkers of
Judeo-Christianity but they could not oblige themselves to admit and
accept such magnificence of the ancient Tur/Turk peoples' language and
civilization. Somehow, they had to destroy that civilization. For
that purpose they confused the Turkish language by way of
anagrammatizing so that they could alienate blood related Oguz people
from each other and thus weaken the existing system and eventually
obliterate it. As they did this they also seized the glory for
themselves of the ancient Tur/Turk peoples' civilization in Middle
East, Anatolia, ancient Masar (Misir changed to "Egypt"), along the
Mediterranean geograpy and other places. This act of politically and
economically motivated looting a long established universal religion
and language had effects of cosmic proportions. It turned the ancient
world upside down and most likely is the source of the confusion in
which the present day world floots.

The Turkish language must have taken the shape of its present
rationality during thousands of years of civilization and human
rational thinking. It can be said that it is almost a perfect
language. Its magnificence is a reflection of how strongly those
ancient Turanians believed in their trinity Sky-God religion based on
the GÖK-ATA-TANRI (Sky-Father-God), GUN-TANRI (Sun-God), AY-TANRI
(Moon-God) concept. No wonder Turkish is the OGUZ language (i.e., the
Sun language) and the TUR language.
