The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus is a short work which coins the well known term in occult circles “As above, so below.” The actual text of that maxim, as translated by Dennis W. Hauck is “That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracle of the One Thing”. The tablet also refers to the three parts of the wisdom of the whole universe. Hermes claims his knowledge of these three parts is why he received the name Trismegistus (thrice-great, or Ao-Ao-Ao meaning “greatest”). As the story is told, this tablet was found by Alexander the Great at Hebron supposedly in the tomb of Hermes.
