Could one be both an Aporetic sorcerer and, say, a Gnostic one?

This question is sparked mostly by Aurang's cryptic statement about practicing "other arcana" to walk through Wards.  It, of course, immediately made me think of the Aporos.

Chapter 11 of TTT:

Quote
“Walking between Wards is easy,” a voice hummed, “when their author practises other arcana.”

Indeed, this is when he comes to Esmenet again to confront Kellhus.
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasûrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

Oh, hmmm, yeah, I think I have been reading that sentence completely wrong all this time...
