Esoterica & the Occult

Double Triangle of Solomon.

Occultism is the practice and study of purportedly "secret" knowledge, which began to poke its head out from behind the curtain in the Christian world during the 15th century, in association with Renaissance humanism. The word itself derives from the Latin occultus, which simply means "hidden". The Occult encompasses a vast array of currents in the Western esoteric tradition (although the worldview itself draws heavily from and fetishises the Orient). Several esoteric movements and concepts particularly associated with the Occult are; alchemy, Gnosticism, neo-Platonism, Hermeticism and the Kabbalah. .

Selected quote
Masonry is a search after Light. That search leads us directly back, as you see, to the Kabalah. In that ancient and little understood medley of absurdity and philosophy, the Initiate will find the source of many doctrines; and may in time come to understand the Hermetic philosophers, the Alchemists, all the anti-Papal thinkers of the Middle Age, and Emanuel Swedenborg. Everything scientific and grand in the religious dreams of all the Illuminati, Jacob Boehme, Swedenborg, Saint-Martin, and others, is borrowed from the Kabalah; all the Masonic associations owe to it their Secrets and Symbols.

Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 33° freemason and leader of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
