Notice this document originated in 1908, the same year the FBI was established.
Freemasonry = 58; Secret Society = 58; Solomon's Temple = 58
Notice also, in addition to, 'The Kybalion', the Gematria of 'Hermes Trismegistus', a person who likely never existed, but is claimed to have.
Notice how prisca theologia fits in. Freemasonry = 158
85, the reflection of 58.
*50 and 175 are also interesting numbers in their own right, but hopefully you know what is significant about the others mentioned.
Also, Hermeticism is about spiritual ascension, like Kabbalah, and like Freemasonry, where it is known as the 'mystical ascent'.
Again, during the 17th Century, and really long before that, there became a powerful movement to hybridize Christianity with the old world occult / esoteric knowledge, such as Hermeticism. And what it appears to me, is the reason the churches did this, was because they discovered it was the truth, it was worthy.
Sadly, those who control this knowledge, also appear to use it for the most disgusting of purposes. And with it, they have the masses purposefully moving out of harmony with nature.
Last point, note the author name for the text we're looking at, the author is said to be the 'Three Initiates'. I spy a '216'.
ALSO, the 'Seven Hermetic Principles', or '7 Hermetic Principles'.
