Level of consciousness (Esotericism) Consciousness is a loosely defined concept that addresses the human awareness of both internal and external stimuli.
This can refer to spiritual recognition, psychological understanding, medically altered states, or more modern-day concepts of life purpose, satisfaction, and self-actualization. Most theories map consciousness in a series of levels, some stages of which are more continuous or complex than others. Emerald Tablet. An imaginative 17th century depiction of the Emerald Tablet from the work of Heinrich Khunrath, 1606.
The Emerald Tablet, also known as the Smaragdine Table, or Tabula Smaragdina, is a compact and cryptic piece of Hermetica reputed to contain the secret of the prima materia and its transmutation. It was highly regarded by European alchemists as the foundation of their art and its Hermetic tradition. Although Hermes Trismegistus is the author named in the text, the first known appearance of the Emerald Tablet is in a book written in Arabic between the sixth and eighth centuries.
The text was first translated into Latin in the twelfth century. The_rapture_of_incarnation_by_artofwarstudios.jpg. Esotericism. The term can also refer to the academic study of esoteric religious movements and philosophies, or to the study of those religious movements and philosophies whose proponents distinguish their beliefs, practices, and experiences from mainstream exoteric and more dogmatic institutionalized traditions. Although esotericism refers to an exploration of the hidden meanings and symbolism in various philosophical, historical, and religious texts, the texts themselves are often central to mainstream religions.
For example, the Bible and the Torah are considered esoteric material. Etymology Ésotérisme. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.
L'ésotérisme désigne un ensemble de mouvements et de doctrines relevant d'un enseignement élitiste caché, souvent accessible par l'intermédiaire d'une « initiation ». Généralités[modifier | modifier le code] Le mot « ésotérisme » est d'origine grecque et, dans l'Antiquité, désignait habituellement des enseignements réservés à un petit nombre d'initiés, notamment au sein des Mystères, par exemple les Mystères d'Éleusis. Catégorie:Ésotérisme. Category:Esotericism. Category:Secret societies. Category:Collegiate secret societies. Skull and Bones.
History Skull and Bones was founded in 1832 after a dispute between Yale debating societies Linonia, Brothers in Unity, and the Calliopean Society over that season's Phi Beta Kappa awards.
It was co-founded by William Huntington Russell and Alphonso Taft as "the Order of the Skull and Bones". Catégorie:Société secrète ou fraternité. Hermeticism. Hermeticism, also called Hermetism, is a religious and philosophical tradition based primarily upon pseudepigraphical writings attributed to Hermes Trismegistus ("Thrice Great"). These writings have greatly influenced the Western esoteric tradition and were considered to be of great importance during both the Renaissance and the Reformation. The tradition claims descent from a prisca theologia, a doctrine which affirms that a single, true theology exists which is present in all religions and was given by God to man in antiquity. Many Christian writers, including Emerson, Lactantius, Thomas of Aquinas, Augustine, Giordano Bruno, Marsilio Ficino, Campanella and Giovanni Pico della Mirandola considered Hermes Trismegistus to be a wise pagan prophet who foresaw the coming of Christianity.
Hermétisme. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Jean-Jacques Boissard, de divinatione et magicis praestigiis, Oppenheim, début du XVIIème siècle représentation d'Hermès Trismégiste. Hermétisme désigne deux courants de pensée : - une doctrine ésotérique fondée sur des écrits de l'époque gréco-romaine attribués à l'inspiration du dieu Hermès Trismégiste (nom donné par les Grecs au dieu égyptien Thot) -une doctrine des alchimistes, au Moyen Âge et à la Renaissance.
Hermetica. Scope The term particularly applies to the Corpus Hermeticum, Marsilio Ficino's Latin translation in fourteen tracts, of which eight early printed editions appeared before 1500 and a further twenty-two by 1641. This collection, which includes the Pœmandres and some addresses of Hermes to disciples Tat, Ammon and Asclepius, was said to have originated in the school of Ammonius Saccas and to have passed through the keeping of Michael Psellus: it is preserved in fourteenth century manuscripts. The last three tracts in modern editions were translated independently from another manuscript by Ficino's contemporary Lodovico Lazzarelli (1447–1500) and first printed in 1507.
Extensive quotes of similar material are found in classical authors such as Joannes Stobaeus. Parts of the Hermetica appeared in the 4th-century Gnostic library found in Nag Hammadi.
