About the Halls of Amenti
The second Emerald Tablet is about the Halls of Amenti. But what does Thoth mean when referring to the Halls of Amenti?
There are many speculations what the Halls of Amenti could be—from mystical realms to star gates to a hidden cavity found under the Sphinx. Misconceptions are easily born by taking words literally, and transposing words literally from the mystical domain to the material domain is often a mistake.
The Halls of Amenti act as a distortion filter between our physical being and the Soul. It is the realm between the Omega Point and our three-dimensional world. Reincarnation happens from within the Halls of Amenti back into a new physical body. This will continue to go on until you finally "get it," meaning you come to understand that the physical world is an illusion.
The term "Omega Point" (later referred to as "Noosphere") was first coined by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and stands for the highest level of consciousness (e.g., God consciousness). The Omega Point is the destination one reaches after passing through the Halls of Amenti. The Halls of Amenti, which is the ultimate hall of mirrors, is the realm of the great illusion. This is only passable by combining knowledge, wisdom, and a complete lack of Karma.
If this idea completely resonates with you, there's an immense task waiting for you!
He who by progress has grown from the darkness, lifted himself from the night into light, free is he made of the Halls of Amenti, free of the Flower of Light and of Life."
Projection of a Higher Reality
The world we live in is a projection of Souls. The Soul is able to materialize itself through Fourier transforms (FT). Matter is a pure mental phenomenon, and not vice versa like science assumes.
The material world is a projection of the highest Truth down to the lowest projection, where it becomes a tangible hologram which we call matter. It has similarities with Plato's treatise on the allegory of the cave where cavemen were looking to their shadows on the wall, rather than to the source (the light) that was behind them.
Essentially, matter is the result of minds. Everything seems to be in its place and tangible, so how could it possibly be an illusion? This is a concept that can be very hard to understand.
The Senses Are Probing an Illusion
We've learned from our birth to rely on our senses, and we are conditioned to think in terms of matter over mind. We've been taught the idea that our physical brains, which are made from dead atoms, produce all our thoughts. We have to overcome this superficial idea. Or better, we have to dump this idea completely. It is a false paradigm.
When you have fallen for materialistic scientific ideas, you will likely get lost in the Halls of Amenti. Until you finally reach—and are able to pass through—the first gate guarded by an Archon, you will be thrown back into a new body.
In our current society, we are trained to rely on our senses as organs of truth. In daily life we learn to probe the world through our senses. Because we are incessantly conditioned in that way, we are unable to unlock the Universal Secrets.

We need to know these Secrets in order to incorporate and live them during our Earthly life. Knowing alone is not enough.
Gods as Gatekeepers
When we solely rely on our senses, we are unable to understand the invisible, undetectable truth that underlies all matter. What our senses perceive is converted into signals, which is interpreted by our brain to be real.
But there is no way to verify the thing we perceive is actually the "truth," other than a material representation. We lack organs of truth. The ultimate truth is only mentally conceivable, especially by grasping the mathematical reality intuitively.
Our universe is 100% mathematical, and that is why the unreasonable "god" of the Old Testament is no true god. It is only a gatekeeper, the bouncer at the door, which some religions have turned into a god. Pure reason is a divine quality, that is why so many people feel attracted to mathematical patterns.
The essence of the human Soul is divine, made in God's image, but tragically most people have no idea what they really are.
According to String theory, also called the M-theory, the three-dimensional physical world has at least seven dimensions above it. This totals 10 dimensions in all. The Halls of Amenti are situated in the higher dimensions and are ruled by pure energetic entities that several religions have called Lord the Almighty, Yahweh, and Allah. Again, this entity is the bouncer at the gates. Plato has called it the Demiurge. The Demiurge has many shapes and forms, and guards with the Archons the gateways to the Pleroma.
These energies distort the pure vibrations that are emitted by the highest level, the Pleroma. It is everyone's duty to overcome this, that's what humanity's real task here on Earth is.
To Be or Not to Be
There is nothing wrong with having a job and working hard. From the perspective of the Emerald Tablets, however, identifying yourself solely with this earthly material life ("I am this or that") often leads to a low capacity for self-awareness, which in turn will cause a Soul, after death, to be stopped at one of the gates. How you identify has nothing to do with your physical being—it is a mental state that you take with you after death. Souls who arrive at the gates without the capacity to move beyond a material conceptualization of themselves will be stripped of their memories and cast back down to the Earth to do it all over again. They will reincarnate in a certain form depending on their Karma.
The Demiurge, the lower god, has installed eight levels of guardians. The ancient gnostics named these guardians "Archons," or dark angels. As long as there are vibrations within you that vibrate with one of the Archons, you will be recognized as one of them, and your Soul will be cast back to where it came from. It sounds easy to get rid of unwanted vibrations, but it is wildly difficult. Getting rid of these Archonic vibrations is your real task while you are here on Earth.
Living a tranquil, self-exploratory life helps along this path. But leaving your comfort zone on a regular basis in combination with thorough self-examination on a daily basis is a must.
The Archons prevent immature Souls from entering Paradise, which precedes the Middle Kingdom and finally the Pleroma. The road to become one with God, the Pleroma, is heavily guarded. Only fully detached, rationalized Souls are able to enter the Pleroma.
It is said by Thoth that, on rare occasion, some impure Souls pass all gates and enter Paradise by cheating and bypassing the rules. These Souls will be cast into the abyss. It's game over for these Souls as long as this universe lasts—until the next Big Bang.
Expression of a Higher Dimension
The Emerald Tablets are written in a language from a higher dimension, but are expressed on our lower dimension. This is similar to the idea of projecting a three-dimensional shape onto a two-dimensional plane. In the case of the Tablets, this occurs not in shape but in text.
Let's assume that a square from the second dimension could speak. It would explain what a cube from the third dimension would look like, but its description would sound funny in both dimensions. If the cube tried to explain what his world looks like, the square would be only confused. It would take great wisdom from the cube to explain his world to the square.
In fact, it's impossible to express in our language the full meaning of a higher dimension. It's only possible by developing a feeling (intuitive mathematics) from the inside, through our Soul. To equally combine feelings with reason is utterly crucial to grasping the Ultimate Truth. Meditation is the key to that.
Everything that's written in the Emerald Tablets has to be lifted to the highest dimension and not be taken literally on our third dimension.
On Earth, man is in bondage, bound by space and time to the Earth plane."
Ignorance Keeps Your Underworld Intact
Ignorance is what keeps the Halls of Amenti on Earth intact. When the ego is not aware, it is a just a lower reflection of something higher—the Soul. This ignorance keeps the ego in charge of all actions, thus keeping the Soul mired in the material plane.
Every individual is an expression of the Universe and is an ever-glowing spark from the Eternal Fire. Duality, arrogance, jealousy, and darkness exist only by the grace of ignorance.
The purpose of life is to outgrow the Halls of Amenti and to cast away the veils of the great illusion. Therefore, ignorance must be conquered. And this is the most difficult full-time job one can have on Earth.
One step thou has gained on the long pathway upward, infinite now is the mountain of Light. Each step thou taketh but heightens the mountain; all of thy progress but lengthens the goal."
The Demiurge and the Ego
The Entity (God) mentioned in the Old Testament is disobedient from its place of origin—the Pleroma or Pure Love. According to Thoth and other (gnostic) sources, the Demiurge is not the highest Entity, though it represents itself as the highest Entity.
Without exception, many organized religions are misleading by not explaining how the world of illusion is constructed. The God of the Old Testament is the bouncer at the door, but represents himself as the Big Boss. This Entity (or deity) disturbs the Universal Truth like a colour filter in front of camera, and makes it even harder to find the truth.
Gaining self knowledge is the most important step in gaining wisdom. Start to practice by radiating love and compassion around you. Why is that so hard? Because in most cases the little "me," the damaged ego, full of self-pity, stands in your way to unlimited freedom and enlightenment.
The Demiurge stated, "I am God and there is no other God beside me." It was saying in other words: "there are other Gods, not only besides me, but even above me."
Your ego is your Demiurge. Your Ego is your bouncer at the door. It will present itself as the boss and throw everyone out that dares to oppose that idea. The collective ego of communities is their Demiurge. And so on.
As above, so below.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell."
Reason and Wisdom
Reason and Wisdom provide the way out of the rabbit hole. These are the Divine qualities needed to pass through the Halls of Amenti. The material projection of your Soul will be recycled again and again through the Halls of Amenti as long as Reason and Wisdom are not your highest values. But that is not enough.
Feelings and emotions are the lowest qualities of humans (think of the three lower chakras), since they develop first. Pure Reason (including intuition) are the highest qualities (think the three highest chakras). The essence of divinity—that is to say escaping the Halls of Amenti—is to balance these two qualities equally in the heart centre at all times, and not to prefer one over the other.
The Universe is mathematical. It is nothing else. Emotions and faith won't help to find the keys. Nor will intellectualism alone help you find the keys. Balance between them all is necessary.
Reading will bring knowledge, but sharing your thoughts and reflections with people who stand on your level (or even higher) is the most important thing to do in life. Inner reflection, introspection, and understanding what drives your feelings and emotions are all a must in order to gain consciousness. Much of this is done through meditation. Socrates already said it: "The unexamined life is not worth living." Remember that for the rest of your lifetime.
This is the only real task humans have on Earth.
Spoke to me then the voice: Go, as yet will. So be it decreed. Master are ye of your destiny, free to take or reject at will. Take yet the power, take ye the wisdom. Shine as a light among the children of men."
