This is my favourite translation, of the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus.

It is the Isaac Newton translation.

Hermes Trismegistus was the father of Alchemy. He lived in about 5000BCE, in Ancient Egypt.

The name 'Trismegistus' means 'Thrice Great', because he mastered the Three Planes of Being, the Physical, the Mental, and the Ethereal.

The Ancient Greeks called him 'Hermes', worshiped him as a god, and represented him with wings on his sandals.

The Ancient Egyptians called him Thoth or Djehuty, and defined him as the Scribe of the gods. They worshipped him as a god, and a god-man or demigod.

The Ancient Egyptians, also recorded, that Hermes Trismegistus, invented magic, medicine, astronomy and astrology, mathematics, philosophy, and the hieroglyphic language, which he taught to the Egyptians.

I think that Hermes Trismegistus was a Priest, of the Lost City of Atlantis. And when Atlantis was destroyed, by volcanic activity, he sailed on a boat to Egypt, to start a new civilization.

The Emerald Tablet, of Hermes Trismegistus, is a condensed summary, of the science and philosophy, of Ancient Egypt, and probably also of Atlantis.

Here it is:


Tis true without lying, certain and most true. That which is below, is like that which is above, and that which is above, is like that which is below, to do the miracles of one only thing.

And as all things have been and arose, from one, by the mediation of one: so all things have their birth, from this one thing, by adaptation.

The Sun is its father, the moon its mother, the wind hath carried it in its belly, the earth is its nurse. The father of all perfection in the whole world is here.

Its force or power is entire, if it be converted into earth. Separate thou the earth from the fire, the subtile from the gross, sweetly, and with great industry.

It ascends from the earth, to the heaven, and again it descends to the earth, and receives the force of things superior and inferior.

By this means, you shall have the glory of the whole world, and thereby all obscurity shall fly from you.

Its force is above all force. For it vanquishes every subtle thing, and it penetrates every solid thing.

So was the world created. From this, are and do come, admirable adaptations, whereof the means (or process) is here in this.

Hence I am called Hermes Trismegistus, having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world.

That which I have said, of the operation of the Sun, is accomplished, and ended.
