Many Egyptologists believe that Egyptians believed in one God, here is a teaching from Hermes (Thoth) to his disciple Asclepius that goes in this direction.
Teaching Hermes in Asclepius
Dialogue about God, the Universe and nature
“None of our thoughts can conceive God, nor can any language define him.
What is incorporeal, invisible, without form, cannot be grasped by our senses; what is eternal cannot be measured by the short rule of time: God is therefore ineffable.
He is the absolute truth, the absolute power; and the immutable absolute cannot be understood on earth.”
“God can, it is true, communicate to some chosen ones the ability to rise above natural things, to perceive some radiances of his supreme perfection; but these chosen ones do not find words to translate into vulgar language the immaterial vision that made them tremble.
They can explain to humanity the secondary causes of the creations that pass before our eyes as images of Universal Life; but the First Cause remains veiled and we will only be able to understand it by passing through death.”
“This death is, for many men, a terrible ghost; and yet, it is nothing more than our deliverance from the bonds of matter.
- Thoth Representation
The body is only a garment of inferiority that prevents us from ascending into the worlds of progress; it is a chrysalis that opens when we are mature to a wider and higher life.
See the flower that charms our eyes by intoxicating us with its scents: it was born from a seed that fell into the ground.
Likewise our body when it returns to this earth, from which it was drawn, the spirit it held captive exhales itself like a perfume to the heavens, for the spirit was contained in the body, like the perfume in the germ of the flower. “
“Death is, for some men, an evil that strikes them with deep terror, that is the result of ignorance, of agnoscence.
Death comes through debility and dissolution of the body; the body dies because it can no longer carry the being: what is called death is only the destruction of the bodily organs (the mind and soul do not die)…”
Here is how Hermès defines and speaks about truth:
“Truth is what is eternal and immutable, truth is the first of all good things, truth is not and cannot be on earth;
it may be that God has given to some men, with the ability to think of divine things, to think also of the truth;
but nothing is the truth on earth, because everything is a material in corporeal form, subject to change, alteration, corruption, transformation.
Man is not the truth, because there is only truth in what has drawn its essence from itself, and which remains what it is.
What changes so much that it is not recognized, how could it be the truth?”
“Truth is therefore that which is immaterial, which is not enclosed in a material envelope, which is colorless, and formless, free of change and alteration, in a word, what is eternal.
Everything that perishes is a lie and falsity; the earth is corruption and generation, and every generation is the result of corruption;
material things are only appearances and imitations of the truth, what reproduction is to reality; also the things of the earth are not the truth. »
Hermes (Greek name) is assimilated with Thoth, the god of hidden knowledge, the Egyptian lunar god and is also known as the mythical author, under the name of Hermes three times the greatest, or trismegistos, or Hermes Trismegistus, of a real esoteric library which later nourishes, in particular, the works of the alchemists of the Middle Ages.
