Jewish and early Christian sects developed gnosticism in the late 1st century AD as a collection of religious ideas and systems. Religious institutions and orthodox teachings were viewed as secondary to personal spiritual knowledge by these various groups. There was a theory of seven heavens in the early Gnostic systems, as well as a supercelestial region known as the Ogdoad. In gnosticism theory, the planets were divided into seven spheres with an eighth sphere above them, the sphere of the fixed stars.

The reversion directors and celestial artisans maintain group headquarters on each of these worlds.
