Asclepius - The Egg



Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

Asclepius – Hermes Trismegistus

This hollow of the world, round like a sphere, cannot itself, because of its quality or shape, be wholly visible.  Choose any place high on the sphere from which to look down and you cannot see the bottom from there.  …...............

Hence the 'bottom' in the sphere is called Hades in Greek because in Greek to see is idein and there is no seeing the bottom of a sphere.  And the forms are called 'ideas' because they are visible forms.  The regions called Haides in Greek because they are deprived of visibility are called infernal in Latin because they are at the bottom of the sphere.

The source of the experience
