Background

A description of the experience

Asclepius – Hermes Trismegistus

How mournful when the gods withdraw from mankind!  Only the baleful angels remain to mingle with humans, seizing the wretches and driving them to every outrageous crime – war, looting, trickery and all that is contrary to the nature of souls. 

Then neither will the earth stand firm nor the sea be sailable; stars will not cross heaven nor will the course of the stars stand firm in heaven. 

Every divine voice will grow mute in enforced silence.  The fruits of the earth will rot; the soil will no more be fertile; and the very air will droop in gloomy lethargy
