What is The Hermetism

Since ancient times man has limited space knowledge of many issues raised by its complexity would not be palatable to anyone who has no intellectual training but mostly does not have an open mind to understand the intrinsic truth of things.

One of the oldest philosophical beliefs is what Hermeticism, which are a set of beliefs largely based on writings attributed to Hermes Trismegistus.
The word "secrecy" is derived from "tight", which is in turn derived from "Hermes." Hermes is taken from the Greek root "Herm", meaning "vitality" or "active, positive, radiant principle of Nature." Also this word throughout the years has become synonymous with closed storage.


The main reference of this movement are the 7 principles of truth described in the Kybalion:

Mentalism: The all is mind, the universe is mental.
Correspondence: As above, so below, as below, so above.
Vibration: Nothing rests, everything moves, everything vibrates.
Polarity: Everything is dual, everything has two poles, everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same, the opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree, extremes meet, all truths are half truths all paradoxes may be reconciled.
Rhythm: Everything flows and flows, everything has its forward and backward, everything rises and falls, everything moves like a pendulum, measure of the swing to the right is the same as the swing to the left, the rhythm compensates.
Cause and Effect: Every cause has its effect, every effect has its cause everything happens according to law, the luck or chance is simply the name given to the law is not recognized, there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the
Law Generation: Generation is in everything, everything has its masculine and feminine principle, the manifests on all planes. On the physical plane is sexuality.
