demi•urge (de-mē-ˌərj) - noun
Platonic, Neopythagorean, Middle Platonic, and Neoplatonic
schools of philosophy, the demiurge is an artisan-like
figure responsible for the fashioning and maintenance of the
physical universe. The term was adopted by the Gnostics.

same as the creator figure in the monotheistic sense,
because the demiurge itself and the material from which the
demiurge fashions the universe are both considered to be

is a grammatically
plural noun for "gods" or "Deity" in Biblical Hebrew. In the
