Hermetic Philosophy - The Ancient and Eternal Wisdom
The Bible and the Qabalah is solidly rooted in Hermetic Science. Hermetic is derived from the name Hermes (Greek) Throth (Egyptian) and Mercury (Roman). Hermes Trismegustus make his first appearance on Earth in Ancient Egypt. Previous to this cycle he was known as Thoth- the Athenian. To students of the occult his most known work is the emerald tablets. Hermes was the teacher of Abraham and was and still is the God of Wisdom. Among the arts and sciences which it is affirmed Hermes revealed to mankind were medicine, chemistry, law, art, astrology, music (Hermes created the lyre), rhetoric, magic, philosophy, geography, mathematics (especially geometry), anatomy and oratory.
In his Biographia Antigua, Francis Barrett says of Hermes..."if God ever appeared in Man, he appeared in him, as is evident both from his books and his Pymander, in which works he has communicated the sum of the Abyss, and the divine knowledge to all posterity, by which he has demonstrated to himself to have been not only an inspired divine, but also a deep philosopher, obtaining wisdom from God and heavenly things, and not from Man." All the fundamental and basic teachings of every race may be traced back to Hermes. Even the most ancient teachings of India have their roots in the original teachings. Interestingly enough, it was at the time of Hermes, in Ancient Egypt that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built. It was in Ancient Egypt that Jesus was initiated into the occult laws and principles. Jesus was a hermetic scientist initiated into Qablah (Hermetic philosophy) in Jerusalem at he age of thirteen.
