This is a very interesting read if you haven't already. It's just another set of opinions about the world, doubtlessly contributing to the ongoing battle among believers, non-believers and . . misc.

It was a big deal during the Renaissance – Ficino was even told to put his translation of Plato on hold in order to translate Hermes Trismegistus's writings for Cosimo de Medici. The book pictured is a very condensed version of the original writings – which spanned many books, one of which, I think I read, is lost.

Whether you agree with it or not is, of course, not the point. I personally question a lot of it, but at least it gets us asking questions. At one point it mentions 'seeing with your mind' – that's an idea that could keep you thinking for a while.
