In this brief video I hope to shed some light into the mysteries that surround the Ancient Egyptian God Thoth. Just who was Thoth, well firstly he was the Egyptian God of writing, magic, wisdom and the moon. He was indeed one of the most important gods and he is said to be self created.
Thoth even presided over the Judgement of the Dead with Osiris and it is said that those souls who feared they might not pass through judgement safely, were encouraged to call on Thoth for help.
The worship of Thoth began in Lower Egypt most likely in Pre-Dynastic Period (6000-3150 BCE)
He is most commonly depicted as a man with the head of an ibis or a seated baboon with/without a lunar disk above his head.
The Greeks called him Hermes and thus he became Hermes Trimegistus (Thoth the Thrice Great ) In Sumerian Culture he is known as Ningishzidda. He is associated with Alchemy, pyramid building, wisdom and communication. Ningishzidda is credited with providing Gudea one of Sumer's most enlightened and best know rulers a set of divine instructions too make a seven stage pyramid. (22nd BCE)
The Aztecs called him Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent. They saw him as the creator deity contributed essentially to creation of mankind. The 1st documented reference was in Teotihuacan 1st century BC or 1st century AD. He was the god of wind, air, learning. Also the patron god of Aztec priesthood,
The well known saying, As Above, So Below is also attributed to Thoth. Knowledge is universal, what one learns benefits all.
It has been said that Thoth / Hermes may have been the 1st philosopher in the history of mankind.
In my book, Thoth As Above, So Below The Greatest Alchemist that Ever Lived I explore the thought process that after the decline of Egypt Thoth traveled to many neighboring cultures to share his vast knowledge.
Hermeticism are religious, philosophical and esoteric traditions based primarily upon writings attributed to Hermes.
Thoth is also thought to have been the author of the legendary Emerald Tablets. They stress three parts of the wisdom of the whole universe, Alchemy, Astrology and Theorgy.
