Welcome to The Hermetic Code - Blog Site of Michael Hayes
Hello, Welcome to my website. This site is a vehicle for the transmission of ideas that have been pre-programmed to replicate inside the mind of every free-thinking soul on this planet. The ideas are not my property, they belong to all of us, and they have been continuously transmitted down through the ages by other human minds for a very long time - for centuries, millennia, and maybe even tens of millennia.
Let me elaborate:
For the past decade and a half I have been pursuing a singular goal: to try to understand in sensible terms the meaning and purpose of our existence.
This is a tall order, of course, and it is a question that millions of other questing minds have been trying to answer for centuries. But as it turns out, I believe that, in my meandering through time, space and human history, I may have hit upon something. After all, people do hit upon good ideas all the time: inventions, innovations, theories, concepts. And we know that, occasionally, there are marked breakthroughs in the cognitive development of our race, when something sparks in the human consciousness and marvellous discoveries are made. Think of the telescope or the laws of gravitation and motion, penicillin or Relativity, the unravelling of the molecular structure of DNA and the genetic code, or quantum mechanics, chromodynamics, superconductivity and so on. All of these ground-breaking discoveries have ultimately shaped virtually every aspect of life in the twenty-first century.
What I have to offer here is not a discovery in the sense of those just mentioned. Rather, it is an acknowledgement, a celebration even, of the remarkable achievements of the pioneers of human thought, not only those of our own civilisation, but also the accomplishments of the denizens of civilisations long gone. This is their story.
