Essentially, Hermeticism is the ancient philosophy, theory and practice of the inner secrets of man, nature and spirit. It's origins are lost in the mists of prehistory. Its revivals in the Hellenistic, Renaissance and modern times have often been pale reflections of its real nature. Though much of its records are lost, it has re-risen from the flames like the Phoenix under many different guises. Fragments of this great primal teaching are distributed throughout the world. Hermes Trismegistus, its legendary founder, has been called the originator of writing, the sciences and arts, as well as the patron of esoteric teachings and magick.

The Key of Solomon (Clavicula Salomonis) edited by S. Liddell MacGregor Mathers For a reprint of Mathers' edition, see listing at INTRODUCTION by Joseph H. Peterson. Scientists have figured out what we need to achieve secure quantum teleportation For the first time, researchers have demonstrated the precise requirements for secure quantum teleportation – and it involves a phenomenon known 'quantum steering', first proposed by Albert Einstein and Erwin Schrödinger. Before you get too excited, no, this doesn't mean we can now teleport humans like they do on Star Trek (sorry). Instead, this research will allow people to use quantum entanglement to send information across large distances without anyone else being able to eavesdrop. Which is almost as cool, because this is how we'll form the un-hackable communication networks of the future.

All About Gemstones: Semiprecious Gems The line between what constitutes a "precious" or "semiprecious" gemstone has more to do with historical context than any objective measure of its current value. Historically, the so-called "precious" or "cardinal gems" included diamond, emerald, ruby and sapphire, but also included amethyst which today is both abundant, and inexpensive. Other than the historic, ceremonial, or religious significance of labeling a gem as "precious," or "semiprecious," there is no actual difference between these designations, and their use can be misleading, inappropriate, and inaccurate. In fact, some of the stones in this category might very well be considered "precious," due to their increasing scarcity, high price, or changing consumer tastes.

Ouroboros - Fullmetal Alchemist Wiki - Wikia Ouroboros refers to the ancient mystical symbol representing a dragon devouring its own tail. It represents the eternal cycle of life and death. The circular affinity suggests the eternal cycle of life death or death and birth that happens to each life born. The head of the dragon represents life, while the tail as it is being bitten represents the end of life, the circular motion shows the perpetual cycle of life and death as the dragon consumes its tail. All of the seven main Homunculi in the Fullmetal Alchemist series are presumed to have the mark located somewhere upon their person as if tattooed there, save for Pride in the manga and 2009 anime. This particular Ouroboros displays a winged serpent with its tail in its mouth, creating a circle with its body.

Scientists Might Have Just Resolved The Mystery Of The Bermuda Triangle For the one and a half century, numerous ships and airplanes have disappeared in Bermuda Triangle area, usually under mysterious circumstances. But a new research from the scientists at Arctic University in Norway takes cues from the multiple giant craters on the floor of the Barents Sea. A massive deposit of methane gas may have exploded in the craters surrounding the seabed caused by gas leaking from oil and gas deposits buried deep in the sea floor. In the past two years, scientists have also documented methane gas bubbling up from the seafloor off the some parts of the west and the east coasts of the United States. One of the topics that need further analysis is whether methane gas explosions on the seabed could threaten the safety of ships.

The Book of Jasher Sacred-textsApocrypha Referred to in Joshua and Second Samuel Faithfully Translated "Is not this written in the Book of Jasher?" Tree of life The tree of knowledge, connecting to heaven and the underworld, and the tree of life, connecting all forms of creation, are both forms of the world tree or cosmic tree, according to the Encyclopædia Britannica,[2] and are portrayed in various religions and philosophies as the same tree.[3] Religion and mythology[edit] Various trees of life are recounted in folklore, culture and fiction, often relating to immortality or fertility. They had their origin in religious symbolism. Ayyavazhi[edit] In Akilathirattu Ammanai, the source of the Ayyavazhi Mythology, life is considered as an Asura, a power-seeking entity which evolved from nature and survives by getting its energy from nature through offerings, boons from the supreme God-head Siva.

theomagica - On Crossing the Abyss The experience of Crossing the Abyss is triggered by a liminal rite and results in a series of liminal experiences in our everyday lives. It describes nothing other than the actual process of crossing the Abyss, i.e. the passing over the visionary threshold that lies between creation and divinity - as well as hopefully a safe return of the practitioner into creation. The term is not specific to a particular rite or tradition of magic but describes an underlying pattern of human existence: When we cross from creation to divinity we are stripped bare of all created forms that we hold as part of our own being: our body, our ego, our memories, our mind, etc. What passes through to the other side of the threshold is the individualised spark of divinity that we carry within ourselves.

A mysterious disease is killing people in Wisconsin A total of 54 people in Wisconsin have so far been infected by a mysterious kind of bacteria called Elizabethkingia since November, and 15 of them have died. The bacterium is not known for making people sick on this scale - which experts say is unprecedented - and right now, no one knows how so many are getting infected. "The fact that we’re seeing more than four dozen cases, that is a very large outbreak," Michael Bell, deputy director of the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) healthcare quality division, told Wired. Last week, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported four new cases of the bacterial strain Elizabethkingia anophelis, announcing that infections have been confirmed in 12 Wisconsin counties so far.
