    Does your approach to Gnosticism lean more towards ascetic or libertine practices? Neither? If you're from a particular school of Gnostic thought, has that school of thought historically leaned towards either? Why?

    If you lean towards more libertine practices, do you believe that you (or others) will reincarnate in order to experience more of the world?

    My practice is definitely very libertine, but I do have intense periods of asceticism.
