8 They are some of the earliest examples of a form that will become very familiar in esoteric literature, in which ‘one who knows’ passes on his knowledge to one who wants to know, Ficino’s ‘special wisdom handed down from sage to sage’. D. I. Gurdjieff, In Search of the Miraculous, where Ouspensky, who wants to know, sits at the feet of Gurdjieff, who does. In the first treatise of the Corpus Hermeticum, Book I, the Poimandres, for example, Poimandres or Nous reveals to Hermes the nature of reality.
Thoth was an important deity, responsible, among other things, for magic and writing, and he was, like Hermes, a psychopomp, or guide to souls in the underworld. When Hermes met Thoth in Greco-Egyptian Alexandria, Hermes Trismegistus was born. Not long after, followers of the thrice-great one came together and devoted themselves to understanding his wisdom and to achieving the same cosmic illumination that Hermes himself had experienced, and which they spoke of as gnosis, a sudden, direct, and transformative knowledge of reality.
Poimandres then looks at Hermes in a way that makes him tremble and Hermes then sees in his own Nous, or mind, that the light had become an ‘infinite world’ — the cosmos — and he sees a fire ‘encompassed by a mighty power’. After Poimandres explains that Hermes has seen Nous in its primal form, a kind of absolute archetype that precedes beginning or end (the state of things, say, before the Big Bang), he tells Hermes that the elements originated in another Nous, created by the first one through the power of the Word, another theme found in Christianity.
