    If you read this paper it actually provides insights into the Gnostic idea of an evil Demiurge figure. The adversaries of the gods are carpenters or builders, particularly Tvastar who is opponent of Indra. John Colarusso demonstrated that Tvastar is very ancient indeed and that his name has the etymology of "two stars". In the context of cosmic dualism the builder deity easily becomes the evil figure whilst his victorious adversary represents good.
