Upon contemplating on the words of this text, one can actually discover the many layers and hidden meanings of these words of wisdom. The text speaks volumes of ancient Taoism and different concepts of Buddhism. It was none other than Sir Isaac Newton, one of the greatest and most influential scientist in human history who claimed that many of his ideas came from the Corpus Hermeticum and the Emerald Tablet (which he translated).
Newton said: “Inferior and superior, fixed and volatile, sulphur and quicksilver have a similar nature and are one thing, like man and wife. For they differ from one another only by degree of digestion and maturity. Sulphur is mature quicksilver, and quicksilver is immature sulphur: and on account of this affinity they unite like male and female, and they act on each other, and through that action they are mutually transmuted into each other and procreate a more noble offspring to accomplish the miracles of this one thing”. “And just as all things were created from one Chaos by the design of one God, so in our art all things… are born from this one thing which is our Chaos, by the design of the Artificer and the skilful adaptation of things. And the generation of this is similar to the human, truly from a father and mother”.
Metatron’s Cube is the name given to a complex three-dimensional geometric figure made from 13 circles of the same size, with lines extending from the center of every circle to the center of all the other twelve circles. It is considered a geometric variant of the ‘Fruit of Life’ symbol that is, in turn, derived from the Flower of Life, a powerful Sacred Geometry symbol believed to hold all the patterns of creation.
Metatron’s Cube is said to contain the five key sacred patterns or shapes that make up all matter in this universe. Known as the Platonic Solids, these shapes are Star Tetrahedron, Hexahedron, Octahedron, Dodecahedron and Icosahedron.
The Platonic Solids are called the perfect solids because in each of them, every face has equal side length, equal face size and equal angle. Moreover, all these figures fit perfectly within a sphere.
The Star Tetrahedron symbolizes the element of Fire. Made of two tetrahedrons (triangular pyramids), the Star Tetrahedron is a sharp figure that corresponds with the sharp and piercing heat of fire. Its uniform shape also makes it symbolic of harmony, equilibrium, stability and balance.
The Hexahedron represents the element of Earth. It is shaped as a cube and with its regular & straight lines, it is symbolic of solidity and firmness that are the key characteristics of the Earth. Moreover, the Hexahedron sits flat and firmly rooted, just like the earth.
The Octahedron is symbolic of the element of Air. The Octahedron has a smooth shape made of eight equilateral triangles which can be equated with the minuscule components of Air that are so smooth that they can hardly be felt.
The Dodecahedron is associated with Aether, a unique element of the heavens, sky or space. Aether is regarded as the fifth crucial element that combines with the other four classical elements of fire, earth, air and water to make up everything in the universe.
The Icosahedron is equated with the element of Water. The Icosahedron is made of 20 equilateral triangles and is the Platonic Solid with the maximum number of faces. Its smooth and even figure is seen as an apt symbol for water that smoothly flows away when one attempts to pick it up.

A personalized astrological talisman is customized to your own birth chart and crafted at a selected auspicious time to enhance the special qualities for you. Personalized Talismans capture your full strength, balance, potential and the true essence of who you are and what is your destiny.
The concept of A Talisman has its roots In ancient metaphysical and cosmological world views, mainly the Hermetic and Neoplatonic Traditions. Those philosophies serve as the underlying ideas and principles that are applied in the practices of Astrology, Magic/Theurgy and Alchemy.
The Ancients believed that the ‘Higher’ world is reflected in the ‘lower’, which is the basic premise of astrology and magic, and that by certain means one can Intentionally create ‘images’ that reflect those higher ‘ideas’ and their corresponding virtues, or as modern will say, the Archetypal essences or principles.
A Talisman is a generic word for such an object, it is a receptacle designed to capture a certain higher essence or ‘image’, as the biblical phrase goes ” in God’s image (hebrew: צלם – tselem) He created him”. The receptacle can be a specific physical object like a jewelry or a statue, but it may also be more abstract, as a special event, ceremony, or the founding of a city. The astrological procedure of electing the right time for a Talisman (for a specific purpose) is much the same As the rules of Electional astrology, which is a branch in Astrology That is concerned with finding Auspicious times for different ventures and projects, no matter how big or small, from finding the best time to go to war, or crown a king, to a opening of a business or publishing a book, or having a weeding etc.
Because astrology deals with time from a qualitative perspective, it is a tool for underpinning the different kinds of essential qualities governing different periods, much like a farmers almanac, telling us what is the best time to sow our seeds, for best results.
Utilizing the tools of the magical tradition, helps us to use in a more Conscious way the energies of our system and within ourselves, and help us navigate and control better those energies according to our wishes.
The Talisman is an intention born in time/space, just like a human being. It has a map that charts its qualities, aspirations and circumstances. Of course the Talisman is not a living body per se, but it is a living intention with its own unique spirit carved from the moving qualities of time, and given birth to by the Artist/Magus, who acts as a mediator and amplifier of the Talisman’s Intent. The Talisman is considered to have a destiny of its own (as was chosen in advance) it is encoded with its own ‘telos’ or functional and essential proposal. When one wears a Talisman the two destinies mingle, delicately persuading each other to a balanced state, in accordance with the needs of the individual’s chart. The Talisman carries qualities that will gently help the wearer as he gets more and more in sync with the talisman’s intention.
The entangled pendant is designed by Judy Hilton and Pat Crelly and created by the artist David Weitzman. The following text was written by Pat Crelly to describe the pendant:
The Entangled symbol was born out of a deep spiritual connection between two souls who were drawn to one another. Together they found true joy in the essence of life. It was as if the two shared one heart and they had finally come home to rest.
It has been said that we have only one twin soul who is our complementary other half and that our DNA is actually encoded to help us find each other. This union is not about human love or gender; it is about divine love using two human portals to create and spread a vibration of unconditional love. It can occur between parent, child, siblings, friends, lovers, or spirit. This connection surpasses all feelings of fear and separation and is a living example of divine creation expressing itself in complete joy.
This symbol was manifested from a vision and buried within its lines are many treasures. It’s meaning is revealed as each aspect is uncovered. It symbolizes the beauty of oneness and is filled with sacred geometry.
It begins with two yin yang shapes that represent two souls. One is in the opposite image of the other because they each carry different dominant forces within them. They are overlapping at the center point of their two polar energies and are spinning in opposite directions. The overlapped area forms the shape of a Vesica Piscis and symbolizes a state of fusion.
The Vesica Piscis is formed by the intersection of two circles or spheres whose centers exactly touch. This symbolic intersection represents the “common ground”, “shared vision” or “mutual understanding” between equal individuals. It is the union of heaven and earth and the shape of the human eye. The spiritual significance is of “seeing eye to eye” to the “mirror of the soul”. The ratio of the axes of the form is the square root of 3, which alludes to the deepest nature of the triune. It is the crucible of the creating process and an opening to the womb from which all geometric forms are born. It is a symbol of fusion, of opposites, and a passageway through the world’s apparent polarities. It is also the geometric image through which light was born.
The two opposite areas within a yin yang are known as divine forces and have been described as electric & magnetic, positive & negative, male & female, night & day, etc. The idea is that there is a balance in life and one half cannot exist without the other. The more balanced you are the more complete you will feel. These divine forces have definite charges and are present in all of creation. Supposedly, we each have a dominant force that prevails as we progress toward a non-dualistic or androgynous state of being. If your twin soul’s dominant trait is magnetic then yours will be electric and when you two connect you will feel a completeness that didn’t exist before.
As you can see, within the Entangled symbol there is an electromagnetic wave pattern found in the dividing line that runs from top to bottom between the two divine forces or energies.
When electric and magnetic energy interact, they propel off each other in a spiral motion. The waves are made up of oscillating, or vibrating, electric and magnetic fields that change with certain frequencies. Together they produce waves of energy that create light.
This electromagnetic interaction can be related to the “Trilogy of Life” where the joining of two always creates a third new entity. This is the essence of all creation and the basis of the transformation that takes place when two souls become entangled.
There is a new energy or vibration of joy that is felt after the chakra energies of these two souls merge. A double helix is shown to represent a pattern of DNA and the symbol of infinity. The spiral of the double helix creates a vortex of energy or love that crosses over the heart center or zero point of the two entangled souls. The zero point is believed to be the center of the soul or the sacred point of contact where human and divine meet in communion.
Now, if you remove the two yin yang shapes within the outer circle and look at the double helix that remains, you will see the shape of a large yin yang on the front side and its opposite image on the back. The shape now becomes spherical as if each half is perpendicular and wrapped around the other. This represents the oneness and harmony of their heart connection and the complete balance they bring to each other. Also, as the two souls continue to move toward each other, they become synergetic which means that the whole is greater than the sum of its two individual parts.
The final aspect of this symbol is the outer circle. It appears as a thick band with a 360-degree twist that gives it a spiraling spinning effect. The twist signifies the intertwining or binding of the two souls in infinite motion with no beginning and no end. Together they are nurtured in the womb of creation, growing in love, filled with joy, and absolutely entangled as one.
Life is a journey…Creation is its purpose…and Joy is the seed
My connection with you brings joy, love, and peace. With you I can imagine every possibility.

At the center of the ring appears the symbol of Monad – a circle with a point in the center. Around the ring engraved in archaic Greek the only commandment for the one who is truly awake – “Know thyself”.
The term Monad comes from the Greek word “Menein” which means “to be stable” and from the Greek word “Monas” which means “Oneness”. The ancient Greeks called the Monad – the base, the essence, the foundation and the builder.
The relation of the monad to other numbers can be seen metaphorically – any number when multiplied or divided by one remains the same; so the monad preserves the identity of everything in existence. When the ancient philosophers noticed this they wondered how does how this one/unity state become the many? The answer was “as a reflection”.
The Monad is the first stage of creation from which evolves the Seed of Life, Flower of Life and the Fruit of Life and the pattern of creation itself.
The “know thyself” saying and the symbol of the Monad represents the hidden secret of creation – the ONE who dwells inside each one of us and experiencing itself through creation and life.
Modern science has found that the basic elements of nature are actually frequencies. Try to imagine it – the physical world around us is vibrating with energy motions. The patterns of sacred geometry and those of other sacred symbols are based on the same mathematical rules of the Cosmos. These structures were discovered during human history and contain profound ancient knowledge – knowledge that relates to the quality of the shape as a frequency and what it bring to it’s surroundings…
In the book “Dune” the author Frank Herbert, describes the rise of the Messiah 8000 years from now. Herbert, who studied among other subjects ecology, psychology and eastern philosophies, created a reliable world that describes in minute detail the rise of “qwitzat haderach” – the messiah (qfitzat haderech is an ancient kabalistic term that describes the ability to be in two places at once). The whole book is interwoven with wisdom that can serve the enlightened reader in his personal growth.
The process and change that the book’s’ hero, Paul Atreides, goes through is in fact a process of enlightenment and divine consciousness, and the recognition of our higher self that exists within us all.
One of the lines in the book is: “That which submits rules”. This short sentence holds the secret of true human enlightenment. All the cosmic forms are creative expressions of one force. All the mystical traditions say that one can experience cosmic unity through various exercises, by which the practitioner gradually eliminates his false identity (self) and his connection to the material world. In the end, the practitioner is able to fully experience the whole cosmos every single moment. When this is achieved the higher self is awakened.
The hero of the book, Paul Muad dib serves as an example of a new kind of human being, who is transformed and unites his consciousness with the greater cosmic purpose.
This transformation is achieved when the hero drinks the “Water of life”. The author describes the hero as the “Kwizatz Haderach” a man who is able to look beyond the masculine and feminine limitations and aspects of creation. To seek unity with the “One” and to look beyond the process of creation itself to within the great void.
Is Dune a Prophetic Novel?
In depth reading of the book raises the question: is Dune a prophetic novel?
The book was written in the early 1960s. The book is dedicated to: “Those whose actions differ from the realm of ideas to the kingdom of solid reality. To the ecologists of the desert plains, whoever they may be, in each generation, to them I dedicate this experiment in predicting the future with humility and admiration”.
At the writing of this book, the two main superpowers of the world were the U.S.S.R and the U.S.A. Frank Herbert focused on the future and saw the rising power of the Jihad and Islamic extremism. The book is full of Muslim terms. The hero of the book is called the “Mahdi” – the Muslim Messiah.
The defeated Caesar is called “Shaddam”. The world in which the battle takes place is called “Arrakis”. The battle is for the control of the “Spice m’lange”. Now just change the name “Shaddam” to “Saddam”, “Arrakis” to “Iraq” and the “Spice M’lange” to “oil”…
This ring is based on one of the greatest novels ever, the Master and Margarita, by the Russian novelist Mikhail Bulgakov. The novel encourage the reader to raise questions regarding his own freedom, truth, courage, his role/destination and the ambition to fulfill his own free will and destiny while facing the hindrances of a corrupted regime and an hypocritical society. The great thing about this book is the two level story, that illustrates how one must face up the truth of oneself. The repeated theme in the novel is that cowardliness is the worst of all human qualities, and that fear is the cause of all suffering.
The ring has a triangle with three Diamonds that represent the three forces in creation. The triangle also represents the Delta which is the first letter in the devil’s name. The triangle appears as well on the cigarette box that the devil uses in the beginning of the book.
The M Represent the master. The ring reminds the wearer that he is the creator of his own reality. The ring is engraved with the Hebrew quote: “Each will live according to his own belief”. Encircling the ring is a Hebrew engraving of a citation from the book by Faust: “Who are you, then?… I am part of that power which eternally wills evil and eternally performs good”.
The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus is one of the most mysterious, cryptic and enigmatic texts. The text is actually derived from the Hermetic tradition – an ancient Greek and Egyptian philosophical texts which are attributed to the mysterious figure known as Hermes Trismegistus. The texts are a combination of the Egyptian god of wisdom, Thoth and the Greek god Hermes. In these texts Hermes discuss with his disciples, the true nature of the cosmos, nature, the mind etc. These teachings can be found in the ancient texts of the Corpus Hermeticum. These texts are dated back to the 2nd and 3rd century AD and their origin is probably Egyptian.
The Emerald Tablet is the the most famous piece of Hermetica and is said to contain the secret of the Prima Materia – the base of all matter and existence which is formless and beyond definition (that is the reason for the endless similes in the Alchemical language). The Prima Materia or the Aether is also described by the ancient alchemists as the Anima Mundi, or the “World Soul”. It is the soul, or oneness that connects everything and IS everything.
The European alchemists believed it to be the secret recipe for the creation of what is known as The Philosopher’s Stone – a substance that is said to possess the power of transmutation of matter (such as turning lead to gold) and give immortality and rejuvenation, therefore known as The Elixir of Life.
Over the years and upon contemplating on the words of this text, one can actually discover the many layers and hidden meanings of these words of wisdom. The text speaks volumes of ancient Taoism and different concepts of Buddhism. It was none other than Sir Isaac Newton, one of the greatest and most influential scientist in human history who claimed that many of his ideas came from the Corpus Hermeticum and the Emerald Tablet (which he translated).
When I came to designing this text as a pendant I’ve decided to incorporate all of it’s Greek and Egyptian origin in my design with the ancient Alchemical similes. The front side the outer “frame” is composed of the four classical elements (water, air, earth and fire) and I’ve used the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs for each one of them.
The center of the pendant is set with an emerald stone and the whole structure of the pendant, the circle with the point in it’s center is actually the ancient symbol of the Monad. The term Monad comes from the Greek word “Menein” which means “to be stable” and from the Greek word “Monas” which means “Oneness”. The ancient Greeks called the Monad – the base, the essence, the foundation and the builder.
The ancient Pythagoreans believed that nothing can exist without a center and that the existence evolves around the center. The center is the source that cannot be grasped or understood but can spread and become a circle.
On the back of the pendant at the outer circle is of course, the ancient symbol of the Ouroborus which in Alchemy represents also the Prima Materia, and the constant change and transmutation of matter and the universe. At the center of the back of the pendant appears the ancient symbol of alchemy.
