According to James M. Efird, the best conjecture seems to be that the thunders represent another cycle of judgment. He states that all numbers in Revelation are cycles of judgment and that had these thunders been enumerated they would have been essentially the same as the seven seals and the seven trumpets. Efird believes they are not recorded because “in apocalyptic literature there is almost always found the teaching that God shortens the time of suffering for the sake of the elect” (See Mark 13:20).

According to the Gnostics, the aeons were the first beings to emerge from the pleroma, “the absolute spirit,” which is the true home of the human spirit. The precise number of aeons varied. In one common schema—discussed by the Christian anti-Gnostic Irenaeus—there were thirty aeons, arranged in fifteen pairs, from Depth and Silence to Theletos (Desire) and Sophia (Wisdom). According to the Gnostic Basilides, there were 365 aeons. Yet other sources specify eight, twelve, or twenty-four. Prior to the general acceptance of the Dionysian schema of the hierarchy of angels, some Christian writers used the term aeon to refer to one of the angelic orders.
