Clare says the following: "'I know the first ones, and those after them know me... I am... the power of the powers and my knowledge of the angels who have been sent at my word... I am peace and war has come because of me. I am the first and the last... The alpha and the omega.'" She quotes bits of The Thunder, Perfect Mind a gnostic text that is part of "The Nag Hammadi Library" (a collection of thirteen ancient codices containing over fifty texts that was discovered in upper Egypt in 1945). Lara correctly notes that she tacts on "the alpha and the omega." It should be noted, however, that in the text of The Thunder, Perfect Mind the quote "I am the first and the last" precedes the other selections she cites.
