Stumbled across this video explaining Valentinian Gnosticism. Thoughts?

I said what I thought. If you have a problem with that, that's on you.

OP can tell me why he thinks the video is interesting.

One of my university entrance examination books was about Nag Hammad gnostic library. And not just research on them but straight up gnostic scriptures. I didn't pass that year and I've hated anything gnosticism-related ever since.
