This 13 stanza verse may be, to those who understand it, one of the
most profound examples of wordmanship ever recorded. To this writer,
these words hold within their scope the essence of all scripture,
myth, and spiritual metaphor.
The following interpretation of the Emerald Tablet of Hermes is
offered by this writer who has spent many years contemplating, and
proving, its content. My intent is only to aid those whose inner
being responds to the tablet's song. Please understand that there
are as many interpretations as there are interpreters, but there is
only one Tablet. Did Hermes write it? Was there such a person, after
all? We cannot be sure, nevertheless, the words are before us and
they resonate with the truth and power of their meaning.
Each person who is drawn to the Emerald Tablet will have their own
ideas and understanding of it, as it should be. Hopefully, some of
these ideas will be shared so that everyone may benefit. No one
person, in my opinion, can comprehend all that these words contain.

XII. Therefore Am I Called Hermes Trismegistus, Possessing The
Three Parts Of The Philosophy Of The Whole World.
XIII. What I Had To Say About The Operations Of The Sun Is
The meaning of the term - HERMETIC PHILOSOPHY
The word "Hermetic" comes from the name Hermes Trismagistus; the
Egyptian God of Wisdom who was blessed with three Magisteries, and
who, it is traditionally believed, wrote the Emerald Tablet.
[hermetic] - sealed and impenetrable from the outside.
[philosophy] - from philo(s); Greek/Latin - beloved, or loving
+ sophia; Greek - wisdom.
Therefore, Hermetic Philosophy means "The
Sealed and Beloved Wisdom."
Hermes' words are simple and eloquent, and yet they encompass the
whole Philosophy of the Great Art which includes the practical work
of making the plant stone and mineral stone (referred to as The
Minor Work and The Major Work, respectively)
Understand that Hermetic Philosophy IS the key. How one makes the
stones, according to the sages, is as simple as making bread once
the ingredients and processes are understood. They say that when the
seeker understands the NATURE of the stones and their correct
PROCESSES they will, with industry and perseverance, easily
accomplish the work.
In this Spirit and Light Hermes' words apply to the comprehension of
both stones for they are similar in nature, but very different in
degree. Above all else, according to the sages, you will succeed in
possessing the Stone when you have first succeeded in possessing it,
metaphorically, within your heart. This is called, "At-One-ment",
which is more commonly pronounced, atonement. Also - isn't it
curious that At-One-ment and (S)tonement share the same numerical
value of 8?
Hermes, through his words, becomes a metaphor for Creation's
The EMERALD TABLET OF HERMES - an interpretation
I. I SPEAK NOT FICTION, BUT WHAT IS CERTAIN AND MOST TRUE.
"I SPEAK ..." In the Christian Bible, at the beginning of the
Gospel of St. John, it is written, 'In the beginning was the WORD,
and the WORD was with God, and the Word WAS God.' This implies sound
(vibration) as the first cause or affect upon Creation by 'I' (God),
the Source of all that is to follow. EveryTHING in the universe,
from the incomprehensible, to the most rarefied thought, even black
holes, flows from 'I' and carries the essence of 'I' within it,
flesh of its flesh, so to speak.
"NOT FICTION, ..." Fiction is imaginary falsehood. Though a
thought may be false within its context, it still exists and has its
being in Mind; only its application can be false. Just as there is
no fiction in a giant redwood that began from a single seed, there
is no fiction in Creation, which began from a single word. The first
infinitesimal SOUND of the first Word instantly established infinite
"BUT WHAT ..." This inquisition opens the void of the NO-THING
like a mother's womb opens to receive her husband's seed. Though
there IS only the ONE, the ONE must acknowledge Itself to become
itself, and thus the Word becomes two in ONE Mind - positive, and
negative, male and female.
"IS CERTAIN ..." The first stirring of the Word is Potential,
undefined yet CERTAIN (Absolute) - 'Omniscient, Omnipresent, and
" ... AND MOST TRUE." Potential desires expression. Inherent
within the dual nature of Mind, which is both male as LIFE, and
female as LAW (here, Law implies the principles of universal
structure), is WILL, which, in turn, empowers Mind's desire to
express itself through CONCEPTion. Their offspring is LOVE or the
REALITY of LAWful LIFE, which is the 'MOST TRUE' love.
... . What is more lovable than the TRUTH itself - their Son?
The phonetics of Son and Sun, or Sol and Soul, is not accidental.
Life, Law, and Truth are, alchemically speaking, Spirit (Mercury),
Body (Salt), Soul (Sulfur), respectively. The TRINITY.
With these first eleven words Hermes has described creation.
II. WHAT IS BELOW IS LIKE THAT WHICH IS ABOVE,
AND THAT WHICH IS
ABOVE IS LIKE THAT WHICH IS BELOW FOR PERFORMING THE MIRACLE OF ONE
"WHAT IS BELOW IS LIKE THAT WHICH IS ABOVE, ..." and "AND THAT
WHICH IS ABOVE IS LIKE THAT WHICH IS BELOW ..." These words bring
to mind so many interpretations that it seems redundant to comment
upon them. From the Bible - God speaks to Moses, I AM THAT I AM, to
the most common contraction - AS ABOVE, SO BELOW.
In essence, for use with alchemical theory and philosophy, my sense
is that these words should best be regarded to mean that the
universal energies [ABOVE] work through and have their being in
their physical counterpart [BELOW], such as a plant, for example.
I define REAL as that which is eternal, and ACTUAL as that which is
temporal. Therefore, there is a Real pattern for the plant which
represents its eternal idea and, for a period of time, an ACTUALized
physical body. Likewise the experiences of the temporal body can
exert an influence on the eternal counterpart.
A Stone is made by separating the three essentials, Salt, Sulfur,
and Mercury; purifying them, and recombining them. Once done they
are empowered exponentially by repeated imbibations and
circulations. The Philosopher's Stone and the Plant Stone, to a
lesser degree, are like lenses through which the universal power and
perfect intelligence pass. The stone focuses and concentrates the
threefold primal energy of the creative Word. That is why it will
transmute metal, or flesh, to its level of potency. The more potent
the stone, the more profound its affects.
"... FOR PERFORMING THE MIRACLE OF ONE THING." Transmuting lead to
gold, or restoring the sick, or old, to health is unexplainable and
implies a divine source for the Stone's goodness. One thing, which
represents the ONE in all its forms; One Universe, One Mind, One
energy, One power, One intellect, in one object - the Stone. That is
III. AND AS ALL THINGS ARE PRODUCED FROM ONE, BY THE MEDIATION OF
ONE, SO ALL THINGS ARE PRODUCED FROM THIS ONE THING BY ADAPTATION.
"AND AS ALL THINGS ARE PRODUCED FROM ONE ... " Again, this would
first imply the ONE original Source of All. Secondly, since we know
that the Above has a Below, and visa-versa, it also implies a
physical counterpart which is the Philosophical Mercury, the Prima Materia. Also known as the Great Sea from which springs all life,
the Mother of Christ - Mary; from mare - the sea (as in, mariner,
etc.). It is written that all things in the objective universe can
be absorbed and dissolved in the Mercury of the Wise - without a
trace. So, this One thing as a concept is represented by THE Mercury
- not metallic mercury.
"BY THE MEDIATION OF ONE ...," The mediator in alchemical
philosophy is universal MIND, or SOUL, of which there can only be
one. In alchemy this is represented by the philosophical Sulfur
[Soul Fire] objectified in our solar system by our sun. Our planet
and everything in it and on it came from the differentiation of
Solar material [particles].
"... SO ALL THINGS ARE PRODUCED FROM THIS ONE THING BY
ADAPTATION." Solar particles may be looked upon as SEED ideas. From
this seed grows all things by adaptation. Just as a seed adapts to
its environment to grow and fulfill itself, so does a universe, a
planet, or a person grow from a seed.
IV. ITS FATHER IS THE SUN, ITS MOTHER WAS THE MOON, THE WIND CARRIED
IT IN ITS BELLY, ITS NURSE IS THE EARTH.
"ITS FATHER IS THE SUN
..." The sun is radical; it radiates and is
"ITS MOTHER WAS THE MOON, ..." The moon is magnetic; it
concentrates and is feminine.
Here, the past tense of "WAS" is used. In my opinion this means that
the elemental or nuclear universe was created once only and is
constantly renewing and evolving by adaptation, though stimulated by
a constant barrage of NEW solar energy - therefore the sun IS its
Father. To expand this concept; the infinity of suns [stars]
provides the universe with constant renewal and expansion. Black
holes [negative polarity] contract the universe. The universe
breathes - exhaling / inhaling. In some teachings this is referred
to as the Divine Breath.
These are metaphors for the duality of the objective universe. The
pure spiritual energy streaming from our sun has to have some kind
of body - a photon. This photon carries within itself its identity,
or its soul, and as a seed represents that which is above the sun
[nonphysical]. It will contribute its seminal virtue as it joins
other seminal particles [protons] to coagulate within the
concentrating negative field of electrons [the MOON factor], and
form a more complex particle like an atom. The atoms make elements
which make molecules, etc. - all by Adaptation.
"THE WIND CARRIED IT IN ITS BELLY,
..." This, I think, is
literally true. The solar wind showers our high atmosphere with
photons and other solar particles [solar seeds] which are carried
about the sky in the wind and moisture [when isolated from rainwater
it is called Gur, or Ghur]. The seed is then brought to earth via
thunder storms and charged with electrical energy. That's why the
spring rain and the morning dew are so valued by alchemists; they
contain electrically charged solar seed.
One of my early mentors explained that the seven color rays of the
sun correspond to the seven tones of the musical scale, and they
also correspond to the seven primary particles, or seeds, of
material existence, at least on Earth. He taught that from these
seven distinct particles, which contain the whole universe in
potential, every element on the periodic scale was, by adaptation,
"... ITS NURSE IS THE EARTH." Adaptive growth occurs as the
earth's rich and infinite array of elements is made available to the
solar seed. Whether in the mineral, vegetable, or animal kingdom,
the seed will find fertile options with which and in which to
evolve. Realize that we are talking about the REAL seed not a seed
kernel, like a grain of rice. One cannot see the seed, only its
tangible body, the kernel.
Each of the 7 primary solar seeds [masculine] has, within the
elemental mix of the earth, a crystalline counterpart that is
feminine [negative]. They are alive in nature and they attract one
another. The Marriage spoken of by the adepts, when they describe
the making of Stones, is the purified union of these two, male and
female, which are the volatile and fixed aspects of the same
element. While in the marriage chamber, the philosophical vessel,
the volatile becomes fixed and the fixed becomes volatile.
Eventually, after they have consummated their union by consuming one
another their SON (Stone) is born.
V. IT IS THE CAUSE OF ALL PERFECTION THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE WORLD.
Here, I think, is meant perfection as nature has it rather than as
man would design it. The universe is slightly out of balance, though
it perpetually tends toward balance. If it were in balance there
would be no movement and no time, no sense of evolution or growth.
However, what we experience as perfection is a form of calm balance
within the fray of nature's arena. Perhaps our words joy, bliss,
ecstasy, or contentment, may covey this type of perfection.
Another kind of perfection is objective perfection. Gold we say is a
perfect metal, a diamond a perfect gem, and so forth. Something
without flaws. We also say a strong, healthy, person, is perfectly
fit, and our natural scientists are always looking for the perfect
specimen. Man can recognize and facilitate what in nature he accepts
as perfection, but man cannot create perfection. Only God is
To the alchemists, perfection was represented by the epitome of the
world's virtue, which they thought was the universe's virtue as well
- the concentration and empowerment of the Prima Materia - the TRUE
Philosophical Mercury. To them, everything that had reached the
zenith of its potential had arrived there by virtue of the Mercury
and thus contained it, yet some natural objects contained more than
others - i.e., the metals.
VI. ITS POWER IS PERFECT IF IT BE CHANGED INTO THE EARTH.
Understand that in nature the Mercury is volatile, vaporous, and
both male and female; the Spirit contains the Sulfur within it. Only
after it is isolated, separated, and purified, are the male and
female separately discernible.
Through art they are reunited in their perfection with their proper
body [Salt] and, once empowered exponentially by many circulations,
enabled to penetrate all matter and raise its vibrations to its own
highest potential of perfection, like the transmutation of illness
to health. Think of the Stone as a super conductor of the virtues of
The sun's light and virtue passes THROUGH the stone rather than from
it. Metaphorically speaking, Jesus (God's Son) felt virtue, which he
always acknowledged came from his Father in heaven, go out of him
when a sick women touched the hem of his robe (his outer garment,
which is analogous to the physical Earth [as the Stone] as stated in
Years ago I had come down with the flu. I had all the symptoms,
fever, chills, dry mouth, and headache. My teacher put two drops of
his preparation under my tongue and had me lie down. In two hours I
was fine, even energetic. What was it? I don't know. Perhaps a
charged Antamonial Theriac? By charged I mean it either contained
the PM (Philosophical Mercury), or the mixture had been distilled
out of a host menstruum of PM. It tasted extremely floral yet
VII. SEPARATE THE EARTH FROM THE FIRE, THE SUBTLE FROM THE GROSS,
GENTLY, AND WITH JUDGMENT.
"SEPARATE THE EARTH FROM THE FIRE,
..." Here, Hermes talks about
the process, but he's also implying that nature performs the same
operation - As Above, So Below. Think of the Universe as analogous
to water's characteristics. You have vapor [moisture], humidity
[steam], fluid [water], solid [ice]; and before they combined to
make water you had the elements hydrogen and oxygen, which are
common to all its forms. Also common to all its forms is FIRE which
is put there by the sun.
When you separate the water from most of its fire you have ice - its
CRYSTAL formation. Likewise, even one of the most dense element
known, osmium, has a melting point of 2700o C as it becomes fluid,
and a boiling point of more than 5300o C as it becomes a vapor.
Everything is bound by four natural qualities; warm, cold, dry, wet,
and four natural states; fire, air, water, earth.
Specifically, he indicates here that the Mercury [fire] - and Sulfur
- is to be separated from its body or vehicle, perhaps a plant or
"THE SUBTLE FROM THE GROSS, ..." In the case of a plant, the
essential oils must be separated from the gross oils. In the case of
minerals and metals - the subtle fire is locked up in their
crystalline structure which has to be cracked and broken.
..." This is a primary KEY to all alchemical operations.
Separation of the subtle parts from the gross parts will usually
require an application of some type of externally manipulated heat.
If this heat is too violent and too fast it will drive the subtle
virtues away; if it is too weak, the subtle virtues can never break
free. The great secret of alchemical operations is the CONTROL OF
"AND WITH JUDGMENT." You do not want to destroy the life in the
things you work with. Each kingdom has its own comfortable life
sustaining range of temperature, even the metals.
For example: To hatch a fertilized chicken egg there must be the
right amount of heat for the right amount of time - approximately
110o F. for several days. Too much heat and you have a cooked chick,
too little and it cannot germinate and grow. It is the same in the
plant and mineral kingdoms. That's why an alchemist knows that a
foundry cast metal is dead because the heat required to melt it
drove out the spirit - its Mercury. Learning to correctly sense the
heat and the character of your fire takes time and practice.
Meditation upon the fire does not hurt, either.
VIII. IT ASCENDS FROM THE EARTH TO HEAVEN, AND DESCENDS AGAIN TO
EARTH, THUS YOU WILL POSSESS THE GLORY OF THE WHOLE WORLD AND ALL
OBSCURITY WILL FLY AWAY.
At this juncture many opinions flourish. What, exactly, ascends and
descends? The Mercury? The Sulfur and the Mercury? Nature herself
may give a clue.
The sun radiates its energy into earth's ionosphere, stratosphere,
and atmosphere, its light penetrates the cloud cover, and eventually
reaches the earth's surface. Sun rays penetrate the oceans, rivers,
lakes, ponds, and polar ice fields, invigorating, purifying, and
sanitizing them all. It interacts with the earth's water in its
various states. Water [the Moon factor] is highly magnetic, and
crystalline - a liquid crystal, if you will. It is not only the most
abundant fluid on the planet, but the most abundant chemical, and
probably the least known and understood.
The earth is an organic, multidimensional, fluxing plasma of life
forces, magnetic fields, and energy vortexes, all of which are
potentially fertile and depend on water. From the arctic poles to
the equator the earth's substance constantly moves. Winds, rains,
erosion, volcanoes, tornadoes and hurricanes, undersea volcanic
action, and tectonic plate movement all bring forth elemental
material that intermixes with the Earth's water and is CIRCULATED.
"IT ASCENDS FROM THE EARTH TO HEAVEN, AND DESCENDS AGAIN TO EARTH,
..." The elementally laden waters evaporate and ascend to the high
altitudes where they are charged by the Sun and impregnated under
the influence of the Moon before they condense as rain, snow, hail,
mist, or dew, and descend back to the earth. They have regained the
power to germinate bringing forth new life that will contribute to
nature's drama. This process repeats itself perpetually. All life
forms cycle through their term from birth to death whether it be for
millions of years, or milliseconds. It is a constant circulation
that everyday, little by little, evolves the whole planet.
"... THUS YOU WILL POSSESS THE GLORY OF THE WHOLE WORLD
Hermes suggests that through personal observation one will
understand Nature's processes, which are gloriously straightforward,
and come to know her Laws. Knowledge of the Laws of nature are
indispensable in guiding one through the maze of pitfalls one
encounters in producing the Great Stone. The lack of true knowledge
instead of wild and confusing theory is the reason so many try, but
so few succeed.
For example, observe a rose: During the night, between midnight and
three, especially during the full moon, the blossom will cover its
petals with microscopic droplets of its precious oil. As dawn nears
the descending dew condenses on the rose petals and bonds with the
tiny droplets of rose oil. As the first rays of the sun strike and
warm the petals the charged water evaporates and ascends into the
air with its little passenger of oil. This scene recurs with every
tree, plant, and flower in our gardens and meadows and regenerates
our atmosphere with its sweet aroma, to say nothing of the medicinal
advantage it lends to one who breaths the morning air [prana?]. This
happens over the whole planet each day. It is the natural process of
The dew also carries trace minerals and metals that have been
exposed through the natural processes of erosion and other surface
"... AND ALL OBSCURITY WILL FLY AWAY." I, for one, agree with the
sages; nature is our best teacher. We should study the relationship
between the three kingdoms and focus on understanding natural
dynamics. It is plain and simple once the concept begins to
formulate and clarify. The books we pour over represent what someone
else perceived - and they can keep us blind to our own light.
To quote a sage that I once studied, "You must break free from
thinking with your ego and be like a child observing the wondrous
domain you call Earth. Open your heart and be like an infant
suckling your daily ration of Wisdom from her breast."
The Stones are made by artificially duplicating Nature's processes
as long as we follow her Laws. Indeed, there is a place in this work
for Astrology, Qabala, and Magic, but true alchemy has no better
friend than Nature herself.
Man is an ignorant being; his knowledge is limited, but his
ignorance is infinite. Ram Ashied
IX. THIS THING IS THE FORTITUDE OF ALL FORTITUDE, BECAUSE IT
OVERCOMES ALL SUBTLE THINGS, AND PENETRATES EVERY SOLID THING.
On the mental plane, after a stone has been successfully
accomplished, a humbling sense of knowing occurs which brings with
it understandings of those things pondered in vagueness and
obscurity before. It marks a rite of passage that leaves one aware
that the accomplishment was not and end of a quest, but rather a
preparation for greater responsibility.
"THIS THING IS THE FORTITUDE OF ALL FORTITUDE,..." One's meditations
are deeper and more profound. A bit more weight is felt spiritually
but this is accompanied with joy and a sense of well being. Yet, one
may feel more isolated as one's life changes due to changes in inner
values and desires. This can mean changes in relationships and
social choices. The FORTITUDE to meet these challenges is in you,
nor are you alone because inner dimensional assistance is certainly
On the physical plane the alchemists assure us that the Stones, both
Major and Minor, when ingested in very small doses, strengthen the
body organically by reinvigorating each system. This is accomplished
on an atomic level in each cell by balancing all forces and bringing
the cell's body, mind, and spirit into perfect harmony. Fortitude in
the physical sense means that one regains the ability to meet all
health and personal challenges with full strength.
"...BECAUSE IT OVERCOMES ALL SUBTLE THINGS,..." Diseases are
incapable of taking root in the body, the power and virtue of the
Stone augments the immune system and overwhelms them. The
Philosopher's Stone is, of course, more permanent and more powerful
than the plant stone.
Channels are opened as the body rejects its drosses and toxins. The
chakras open allowing more vital hormone secretion to occur. The
body actually transfigures to a higher state of energy. And the mind
opens and expands becoming more psychically sensitive.
"...AND PENETRATES EVERY SOLID THING." On the mental plane this
refers to the sages' claim that one can pierce the veil and perceive
past and future clearly. One's mental power increases so that one
may achieve a certain power and control over the elements,
especially the weather.
On the physical, it is claimed by some who write of the virtues of
the Philosopher's Stone that they have experienced the renewal of
teeth, darkening of hair, renewed sexual potency and desire. Women
who have passed menopause conceive and give birth in their fifties
and sixties. Tumors and skin blemishes disappear, such as liver
spots. Glasses are put away as normal eyesight returns.
In metal transmutation the stone transmutes a metal to its next
highest level, tin to copper, copper to silver, silver to gold.
According to the story of Bit Nur*, a light emitting crystal called
a Billur, made by monastery alchemists, Chakimim, in the Himalayas,
transmuted any metal exposed to its brilliant light into the next
highest metal, silver to gold, for example. The author stated that
the monks told him that their crystal was the TRUE Stone of Hermes.
Are these claims true? Only those who accomplish the glorious Stone

X. THUS ARE ALL THINGS CREATED.
He speaks here of All THINGS. Creation is a process that is still
going on from minute to minute. A constant flow of energy expressing
countless forms of objective existence that mirror the unseen. The
Stones epitomize that concentrated power that is exercised every
moment by Divine Mind. They are artificial, man made, but divinely
directed, and yet they transmit the creative power of God.
XI. THENCE PROCEED WONDERFUL ADAPTATIONS WHICH ARE PRODUCED IN THIS
Once the Stone(s) is in hand, its bearer will be directed from
within as to its use - where, when, and how, and for whom. It has
been claimed that the stone will make a dead branch flower, a blind
person see, a tremor removed from one, palsy from another, and a
barren field produce abundantly.
XII. THEREFORE AM I CALLED HERMES TRISMEGISTUS, POSSESSING THE THREE
PARTS OF THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE WHOLE WORLD.
There is contention here as to his meaning. Does he mean that he has
achieved mastery over his Body, his Mind, and his Spirit? Or could
he mean he has gained mastery or been made a Magistery over Salt,
Sulfur, and Mercury in Nature. Some think he means that he is a
Master Alchemist, a Master Astrologer, and a Master Magician
(Qabalist). Others believe that he is one of the early incarnations
of Christ. Actually, we each must decide for ourselves.
XIII. WHAT I HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE OPERATIONS OF THE SUN IS COMPLETE.
I have no more to add.
For comparison I have included another version of the Emerald
Tablet. It was first written in the Chaldaen language, then
translated to German, and then later to English. It has come from
the Chakimim of Bit Nur. According to the story, they sang this like
Praise And Honor Be Unto Our Lord
Who Created Heaven And Earth Through A Word. And He Created That
Which Is Above Like Unto That Which Is Below And That Which Is
Below Like That Which Is Above.
His Father Is The Sun, His Mother The Moon, And His Breath The
Wind Blowed Gently Over The Earth Fructifying It.
And The Creatures From Below Mix Their Powers With Those From
Above And They Beget A Wonderful Being.
Four Elements Does It Contain Within Itself.
In Its Earth Is Our Lord. In Its Water Is Our Lord. In Its Air
Is Our Lord. In Its Fire Is Our Lord.
Earth, Water, Air, And Fire Pay Attention To His Will, And Obey
The Law Of Our Lord.
Thus Is The World Created And The Name Of Our Lord Is The Key To
