20,[n]Shangdi[ch]also sometimes Huángtiān Dàdì, appeared as early as the Shang dynasty. In later eras, he was more commonly referred to as Huángtiān Shàngdì. The use of Huángtiān Dàdì refers to the Jade Emperor and Tian 20,[n]Yu Di (the Jade Emperor)[ch]appeared in literature after the establishment of Taoism in China; his appearance as Yu Huang dates back to beyond the times of Huangdi, Nüwa, or Fuxi 20,[n]Tian (Heaven)[ch]appeared in literature c. 700 BC, possibly earlier as dating depends on the date of the Shujing (Book of Documents). There are no creation-oriented narratives for Tian. The qualities of Tian and Shangdi appear to have merged in later literature and are now worshiped as one entity (Huángtiān Shàngdì) in, for example, the Beijing’s Temple of Heaven. The extent of the distinction between Tian and Shangdi is debated. The sinologist Herrlee Creel claims that an analysis of the Shang oracle bones reveals Shangdi to have preceded Tian as a deity, and that Zhou dynasty authors replaced the term “Shangdi” with “Tian” to cement the claims of their influence 20,[n]Nüwa[ch]([→]Nü Kwa) appeared in literature no earlier than c. 350 BC. Her companion, Fuxi, ([→]Fu Hsi) was her brother and husband. They are sometimes worshiped as the ultimate ancestor of all humankind, and are often represented as half-snake, half-humans. It is sometimes believed that Nüwa molded humans from clay for companionship. She repaired the sky after Gong Gong damaged the pillar supporting the heavens 20,[n]Pangu[ch]written about by Taoist author Xu Zheng c. 200 AD, was claimed to be the first sentient being and creator, “making the heavens and the earth.” 10,[n]Dizang[cb]ruler of the ten hells 5,[n]Duō Wén Tiānwáng[cb]He who hears everything.

20,[n]Pleroma[gn]supreme divine source is known under a variety of names, including “Pleroma” (fullness, totality) and “Bythos” (depth, profundity) Almost all gnostic systems of the Syrian or Egyptian type taught that the universe began with an original, unknowable God, referred to as the Parent or Bythos, as the Monad by Monoimus, or the first Aeon by still other traditions. From this initial unitary beginning, the One spontaneously emanated further Aeons, pairs of progressively “lesser” beings in sequence. The lowest of these pairs were Sophia and Christ 5,[n]The demiurge[gn]or creator god in Gnosticism is a lesser and inferior or false god. In most of the systems, this demiurge was seen as imperfect, in others even as evil. This creator god is commonly referred to as the demiourgós used in the Platonist tradition.

In most if not all versions of the gnostic myth, Sophia births the demiurge, who in turn brings about the creation of materiality. The positive or negative depiction of materiality thus resides a great deal on mythic depictions of Sophia’s actions

But there is reason to believe he might be Takehazuchi and there are others who say this might even be Amaterasu 10,[n]Nigihayahi-no-mikoto[ja]reportedly called “Furu” and said a sone of “Futsushi”.
