I term the Immortal one plasmate, because it is a form of energy; it is living information. It replicates itself - not through information or in information - but as information.
As living information, the plasmate travels up the optic nerve of a human to the pineal body. It uses the human brain as a female host in which to replicate itself into its active form. This is an interspecies symbiosis.
The Hermetic alchemists knew of it in theory from ancient texts, but could not duplicate it, since they could not locate the dormant, buried plasmate. Bruno suspected that the plasmate had been destroyed by the Empire; for hinting at this he was burned. "The Empire never ended."
Since the Universe is actually composed of living information, then it can be said that information will save us. This is the saving gnosis which the Gnostics sought.

In a sense, the observer is the observed. The observer is also the measuring device, the experimental results, the laboratory, and the breeze that blows outside the laboratory. In fact, Bohm believes that consciousness is a more subtle form of matter, and the basis for any relationship between the two lies not in our own level of reality, but deep in the implicate order. Consciousness is present in various degrees of enfoldment and unfoldment in all matter, which is perhaps why plasmas possess some of the traits of living things. As Bohm puts it, "The ability of form to be active is the most characteristic feature of mind, and we have something that is mindlike already with the electron." - Michael Talbot - _The Holographic Universe_
"Humans are held in mechanical slavery called the 'empire.' There is a war fought against the empire by a high energy of information called the plasmate."
