  1. Pneumatic

    The pneumatics were, in gnosticism, the highest order of humans, the other two orders being psychics and hylics. A pneuma saw itself as escaping the doom of the material world via the secret knowledge. Outsiders could only know these secrets by joining a gnostic group. To be gnostic is to believe in three planes of existence: the pure unknown, the material world of coitus and comfort, and the pure spiritual realm of ascension or escape.
