I guess I have to say that I have 'problems' with such an 'objectification' of the term "predator". Quoting: 4Q529
It is a paranoid image, to begin with; which means, of course, that it is congruent with the consciousness of the "self" which originates in fear and desire in the first place; by which I mean that such a kind of consciousness must be observed in detail, in the mechanisms of its actions and reflexes, to be of any use.
That is, the problems with the dualistic consciousness are much more subtle than that.
One moves from the "observing consciousness", to the consciousness of the "self", to the consciousness of the 'thinker' maybe hundreds of times each day; depending upon the exigencies of life.
It is the tenacity of the images of the "self" and the thoughts of the 'thinker'--and the inability to step outside of those images and thoughts--that is the problem.
It is the "self" that loves, for example. And, while that is positive, it is the holding to images of that love, and interacting on the basis of those images, that cause problems.
Same goes for the thoughts of the 'thinker'.
They are crucially important for survival in society.
On the other hand, they are, in other instances, the very source of conflict and violence.
In short, Gnostic theory is not any better than any other theory if it is nothing more than something that is held by the consciousness of the 'thinker' for the purpose of preserving the duality of the "self".
You can not observe consciousness from a position of separation. You are consciousness. You can only observe the self image that consciousness creates. My name is blah blah blah and I like blah blah blah.
You can take a step back and say what is it that likes blah blah blah and chooses to behave a certain way. Behavior is a choice. What is it that is choosing how to behave? Consciousness. Sadly in our current state we are unable to access our full consciousness and this creates confusion.
I personally think that you are unnecessarily trying to over complicate things. Duality is necessary if you wish to experience and all duality stems from positive and negative energy. Energy is the most important thing in existence.
All of people’s energy is used through the act of living. They don’t realize the act of living was created to make them exert all their energy. In this world they foolishly turn their energy into money or (electrical) currency. Whenever people do manage to store up extra energy they typically release it during sex. With no energy you have no personal power and with no power you can’t manifest your thoughts. The Egyptians used to use an ankh to try to reroute their energy that is released during orgasm back into their body. This is why many monks become celibate they are trying to store energy. Just like with money you need to have energy already saved to generate more energy.
Thought is the creative force, and words are powerful because they are spoken thought that carry a special vibration. The language we have been taught carries negative vibrations and people don't realize that they are being hypnotized by a form of word magic. That's because they are taught there is no such thing as magic. Hell, even on your money is occult symbols and making parchment is a form of binding magic that makes people desire the money.
