This reenactment was preformed by a troupe of Tek-Gnostic saints who have traveled the world, revealing these sacred teachings, known as Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Information pertaining to these great Tek-Gnostic masters as well as information on the complete documentary can be found here.
This important Tek-Gnostic premise promotes critical thinking, increased intelligence and self sufficiency. It is the first doctrine of the Tek-Gnostic eight-fold path, presented at our Electronic Mystery School, found here. As we proceed upon our wondrous journey toward discovery, we will continue the conversation.
