In ancient days, Egypt was referred to as Khem (Black Earth). This cradle of civilization gave birth to alchemy, chemistry, and a mysterious body of work known as the Hermetic Texts.
Hermetic philosophy derives its name from Hermes Trismegistus, the Greek incarnation of the Egyptian deity Thoth, who is the Neter of language, science, magic, the moon, and wisdom, and the Roman incarnation of Mercury, the messenger god.
“Close your eyes and let the mind expand. Let no fear of death or darkness arrest its course. Allow the mind to merge with Mind. Let it flow out upon the great curve of consciousness. Let it soar on the wings of the great bird of duration, up to the very Circle of Eternity.”
In the video below, British author, and philosopher, Graham Hancock reads from the Lament of Hermes, which is a lucid dialogue between the Greek God Hermes and his pupils on the nature of mankind and a deeply relevant prophecy of Humanity’s future.
