After Justinian closed the Platonic Academy in AD 529, according to the historian Agathias, its remaining members sought protection from the Sassanid ruler, Khosrau I , carrying with them precious scrolls of literature, philosophy, and to a lesser degree, science. After the peace treaty between the Persian and the Byzantine empires in 532 guaranteed their personal security, some members of this group found sanctuary in the Pagan stronghold of Harran , near Edessa . One of the last leading figures of this group was Simplicius , a pupil of Damascius , the last head of the Athenian school. The students of an academy-in-exile may have survived into the ninth century, long enough to facilitate the Arabic revival of the Neoplatonist commentary tradition in Baghdad . 
Scar tissue of the soul blocks out the Spiritual human life energy from filling the soul. Beneath the scar tissue will be darkness in the frontal lobes and heart. The darkness in the frontal lobes creates an affinity to the Cosmic System through mataiotes , the vacuum in the soul. Satan and his demons will have access to the soul through the vacuum to instill their doctrines of demons from Ecumenical Babylon. Legalistic arrogance will reject the authority of God and succumb to the power of the Cosmic Babylon. True love will be replaced by Political Babylon, which will accept a cheap substitute for Right Man or Right Woman. At the same time, legalism along the negative Y-axis will reject the true love for Right Man or Right Woman.
