These breezy-short lectures are severely lacking in depth. The writer, Scotto, lacks vocabulary and does not demonstrate a knowledge-base to warrant serious consideration. Casual listeners only. The item description suggests the author is fluent in many mathematical tricks of trade. That, he is not. He is after your 1.98 to induce the buyer into purchasing three or four of 45 minute packages. He falls back on fad language, as a 5th string fad guru.

The Corpus Hermeticum is a series of short philosophical and religious treatises dating from the beginning of the Common Era. Most of the texts take the form of a dialogue between Hermes Trismegistos and one or more of his disciples. The texts are loosely related but clearly separate tracts seemingly written by many different authors who use the character of Hermes Trismegistos as a prop to express their unique philosophies.

No struggling to get through this. If you like the series, great companion. Authors get more time to than the show. Essential if you watch the show.

He was the father of the occult, the founder of astrology, the discoverer of alchemy. He was Hermes Trismegistus, and as the scribe of the gods of ancient Egypt, he possessed all divine knowledge... which he passed on to humanity, though only those who have been tutored in its wonders can fully understand it.In this extraordinary 1912 book, three secret initiates to his teachings - who remain anonymous to this day - share their insight with all who seek to understand the mysterious underpinnings of the universe and our relationship with it.
