Hermes Trismegistus is the alleged author of the Corpus Hermeticum. From the teachings of Thoth of ancient Egypt (and Hermes himself of ancient Greece), the Hermetic Principles are described as the 7 natural laws of the Universe.
‘The famous philosopher Descartes described the pineal gland as the ‘principal seat of the soul.’ You’ve probably heard of this gland being called the ‘third eye,’ a mystical chakra point residing right in the middle of your eyebrows. It turns out these ideas aren’t too far off. The small, rice-sized, pinecone-shaped endocrine organ sits alone in the middle of the brain and at the same level as the eyes.’
The Emerald Tablets were written by Thoth, a leader of ancient Egypt that is often referred to as ‘a God’. These tablets contain ancient wisdom on how reality and the Universe work, with reference to the Hermetic Principles. ‘Acknowledging that they were created on an imperishable material, suggests that they held the knowledge in high regards and is less likely to be fable like some critics suggest.’
