I don't know about this Abraxas but the gnostics in general were dualists.
They thought that the world was an illusion created by an evil creator
(demiurge) who was not the same as the real God and that Gods earthly
incarnation was a mere phantom.

All of this is the polar opposite of Advaita teachings.
