The Golden Dome School is pleased to present sound, vision and performance works that came out of our work together in THE ALCHEMICAL IMAGINATION
THE EMERALD TABLET, translated by Idris Shah
The truth, certainty, truest, without untruth.
What is above is like what is below. What is below is like what is above.
The miracle of unity is to be attained.
Everything is formed from the contemplation of unity, and all things come about from unity, by means of adaptation.
Its parents are the Sun and Moon.
It was borne by the wind and nurtured by the Earth.
Every wonder is from it
and its power is complete.
Throw it upon earth,
and earth will separate from fire. The impalpable separated from the palpable.
Through wisdom it rises slowly from the world to heaven. Then it descends to the world combining the power of the upper and the lower.
Thus you will have the illumination of all the world, and darkness will disappear.
This is the power of all strength- it overcomes that which is delicate and penetrates through solids.
This was the means of the creation of the world.
And in the future wonderful developments will be made, and this is the way.
I am Hermes the Threefold Sage, so named because I hold the three elements of all wisdom.
And thus ends the revelation of the work of the Sun.
(Shah 1964: 198).
