A Note by André Consciência
Many of my colleague magicians dismiss this book as adulterated hermetics. We are, however, entirely aware that The Kybalion is not part of the same time as books such as Corpus Hermeticum and other founding books of the philosophy that came to be known as Hermeticism. We are also aware, fully, that in no way does it need to be in order to present itself as valid hermeticism. More, we dare say this book follows in all ways the method of original hermeticism: it studies the great book of nature and the cosmos, paired with that shining book of the human and the spirit, and it derives from there axiomatic laws, practices and conclusions.
Do we need Hermeticism to be stuck to the equivalent of science in Ancient Greece? Isn’t the Scientia, that knowledge of necessary causes, the same but its discoveries ever new or expanding?
The Kybalion is the actualization of Hermetics, yet its principles remain as old as the universe.
In pair with this modernization of ancient wisdom, I have decided for modernistic illustrations to empower the messages that will soon be forever imprinted on the reader.
