... "The bird fights its way out of the egg. The egg is the world. He who wants to be born must destroy a world. The bird flies to God. The god is called Abraxas....

 

... But it seems that Abraxas means much more. We can think of the name as that of a deity who had the symbolic task of uniting the divine and the devilish...."
