The Emerald Tablet is a long-lost ancient artifact of no known location. It may provide a formula for producing the philosopher’s hammer, which can convert metals into gold, as well as the Hermetic Philosophy’s base.
It may also refer to the metaphysical counterpart, purification of the soul. After the fourteenth century, Arabic copies of its text made it known to the Christian world.
The real Emerald Tablet was a rectangular piece of art with a bas-relief cutout of the holy message in a Phoenician-style alphabet.
Emerald was prized by the ancients, and this tablet is said to be made of it. It’s more likely that it was a green stone like jasper or jade, since large quality emeralds from the ancient world (if it was from the old world or even from Earth) are hard to find, although there’s controversy over what was and wasn’t called an emerald in the old world. Maybe it was just a shard of green glass.
With pre-Greek origins, the Emerald Tablet’s writings are generally regarded as one of the oldest extant Western alchemical books. It is still used by modern-day alchemists in occult circles. The writings are thought to be from the Hermetic Tradition, a non-Christian branch of Hellenistic Gnosticism.
Alchemy was known to the Arabs as the Hermetic art. Philosophical and alchemical/magical texts are the two types of Hermetic works. The bulk of these texts (the Corpus Hermeticum) were lost, as were many other texts from this era, and no one knew how many there were.
Both gods became gods of wisdom, intelligence, magic, and the afterlife after teaching man not to do anything. The origins and mythology of these gods can be traced back 10,000 years or more in the far past. With them, the legends and possible origins of the tablet they/he built disappear. In the other hand, the possibility that it is a strand of ancient wisdom that has survived is intriguing.
The tablet was found in Sri Lanka’s Ark of the Covenant, buried in Alexander the Great’s Great Pyramid, and later discovered and concealed in other Middle Eastern caves, according to tradition.
But how much do we know about the text? Popular people like Isaac Newton and Madame Blavatsky have translated parts or translations of the Bible into English from Arabic, Latin, Chaldean, and Phoenician.
It encapsulates the essence of alchemy, namely, that gaining access to life’s profound truths requires knowing the essential yet mystical relationship between earthly and celestial stuff.
From Satan’s Crown to the Holy Grail: Emeralds in Myth, Magic, and History is adapted from Diane Morgan’s novel. It’s definite, undeniably so, and without a shadow of a doubt true.
For the One Thing’s miracles to flourish, what is below is like what is above, and what is above is like what is below. And, just as everything in creation is derived from that One, everything in nature is influenced by It as a result of that One’s reflection.
The Sun is its parent. The Moon is its mum. It’d be able to keep the wind in its belly. The Earth is its surrogate mother. Many of the world’s perfected inventions are overseen by this mastermind. When it merges with the Earth, its true force is known. With great dexterity, you can discern the Earth from the Fire, the Subtle from the Heavy.
It receives energy from both below and above as it travels from Earth to Heaven and back. As a result, you will own all of the universe’s glory. As a result, you will be stripped of all forms of evil. This is the most powerful of all powers, capable of penetrating all solids and conquering all complexities.
As a result, the world takes shape. Mentioned below are a number of miracles that have been opened, as well as guidance on how to do so. As a result, I’m known as Hermes Trismegistus, the philosopher who possesses three philosophical fragments.
I’ve said everything there is to say about the Solis service. More works by Thoth/Hermes are said to be hidden in a secret library, waiting to be discovered.
This idea has a long tradition, dating back to the Egyptians’ quest for Thoth’s works. Clement of Alexandria wrote about it in the early Christian century. He said that 42 holy books were suppressed before humankind was able to read them.
