Hermes next inquired about the road by which the wise attained to Life eternal, and Poimandres continued: "Let the man endued with a Mind mark, consider, and learn of himself, and with the power of his Mind divide himself from his not-self and become a servant of Reality. (Poimandres, The Vision of Hermes sourced from sacred texts.com: Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings from All Ages, 1928)
And he requires everyone--small and great, rich and poor, free and slave--to be given a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark: the beast's name or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom: The one who has understanding must calculate the number of the beast, because it is the number of a man. His number is 666. (Book of Revelation 13:16-18)
The Book of Revelation, far better known than the Hermetic texts in our times, expresses the danger in this number, 666, appearing to warn against investigating it any further. My post GNOSIS, 666 explains it as the encryption of Gnosis, the ultimate knowledge, through the lens of the source language; Sumerian.
Clearly, the danger exists. But for whom? Did the Revelation version of 666 serve to counter pre-existing Hermetic texts, to suppress the desire to obtain further knowledge through fear? To remain in the darkness and under some form of external mind control? Does 666 in the Poimandre text refer to the passage through the darkness and the terrors lurking in minds, the demons that must be defeated before arriving at a place of light and finding there AMA, the most profound expression of love? That is the impression I get from my analysis of GIG-NUS and the presence, the essence of Hermeticism in the Sumerian texts, but please don't take my word for it. I'm still exploring the language and its extraordinary reach. Who is this man?
