7 Hermetic Principles

From the teachings of Egyptian-Greek philosopher Hermes-Trismegistus:

  1. Mentalism: the universe is mental, all is mind
  2. Correspondence: as above, so below; as within, so without
  3. Vibration: nothing rests, everything vibrates
  4. Polarity: everything is dual and consists of a pair of opposites
  5. Rhythm: everything flows out and in, back and forth, rising and falling
  6. Cause and Effect: every cause has an effect, every effect has a cause
  7. Gender: everything has both masculine and feminine properties
