And I said, “Lord, those, however, who have not known to whom they belong, where will their souls be?” And he said to me, “In those, the despicable spirit has gained strength when they went astray. And he burdens the soul and draws it to the works of evil, and he casts it down into forgetfulness. And after it comes out of (the body), it is handed over to the authorities, who came into being through the archon, and they bind it with chains and cast it into prison, and consort with it until it is liberated from the forgetfulness and acquires knowledge. And if thus it becomes perfect, it is saved.”
The divine λόγος was trying to rid the world of its archonic (ἄρχων), draconic worship.
“For at the consummation of your work, the entire defect [archonic] exposed in the light of truth will be abolished, and [that illusion] will be as if it never had been.”
