Fate - In Gnosticism, Fate is determined by great celestial figures and, above all, by the planets that dispense fatality. The sphere of Heimarmene (Fatality) separates the 12 aeons from the terrestrial world

Fate instigates against Adam (Phos). In pre-Gnosticism, Adam is freed from Fate. Humanity is enslaved by Fate, imprisoned in the chains of the material and the temporal. The physical body is the body of fatality because it is formed from the four elements, fire, water, air, and earth. Humanity longs to escape from Fate and return to its original form and to the spiritual from which it has fallen. Jesus is said to have changed the course of Fate by reversing the rotation of the spheres

Fatality is inherent in the cyclic Time of the created world. Between the temporal world and the timeless world there is a frontier, a Limit (Horos), which is absolute and impassable. In Chaldaean astrology, after death the soul re-ascends into heaven, escaping at last from Time and Fate. On re-ascent. the soul successively discards the clothing of Time and Fate, the physical body, layer by layer, as it passes by the spheres.

"And he almost regretted that he had created the world." (A Valentinian Exposition, Gnostic papyri)

The Teachings of the FatherFather - The name of God, the supreme divinity existing as the existence that is nonexistence, or negative existence. The supreme divinity is "the one who encircles all spaces while there is none that encircles him." (The Gospel of Truth). In other words, The Uncontained that Contains. Principle of Containment is an ancient philosophy seen on the Phaistos Disk.

He "stretched himself out and it was that which he stretched out which gave a foundation and a space and a dwelling for the universe." He is "unfathomable in his sweetness." "He is the one who projects himself thus, as generation..." "He is the fullness of paternity."

He is also shaped like doughnut, according to some Gnostics:
"They wear him while he wears them." (The Tripartite Tractate)

The Aeons are silent about the Father, his form and his nature and his greatness. The Father exists in many names. He is a unity, yet is innumerable in his Properties and names

In Gnosticism, God is undoubtedly a man, and that much hasn't changed about how the Christians and nearly all the rest think about God. Here are nineteen Gnostic names for God that include "Father." Father of All (Barbelognostic); Father of the Universe, First Father, Pro-Father, Father of Himself, Unbegotten Father (Eugnostos); Invisible Father (Gnosticism); Living Father, Kingdom of the Father (Gospel of Thomas); Father on High (Ophite); Immobile Father (Peratean); Nous the Father, Androgyne Father (Poimandres); The Fatherhood (Revelation by Dostheus); Father of the Universe (Sophia of Jesus); Everlasting Father (Sacred Book of the Invisible Great Spirit); Amon-Re, Father of Fathers (Egyptian); Father of Greatness (Kantean); Fathers in the Heights (Manichaean).

The artist(s) of the disk puzzle populated the spirals with pictographs as place holders for the hidden large pictographs (patterns), revealed when the matching pictographs are connected with lines, as in connecting points with lines in geometry and stars with lines in astronomy to produce constellations.
