“But man is made thus; he pursues when he ceases to be pursued.”
G.R.S. Mead, Simon Magus

“And of the matter stored beneath it , the Father made of it a universal body, and packing it together made it spherical - wrapping it round the life - [a sphere] which is immortal in itself, and that doth make materiality eternal.”
G.R.S. Mead, The Corpus Hermeticum: Initiation Into Hermetics, The Hermetica Of Hermes Trismegistus
