Re: Theos-World The "books" by Hermes Trismegistus that Plato learned "all" of his philosophy

I don't think any of us would find many books (if any at all) written by 
Hermes Trismegistus -- since most such works could have been destroyed in the 
burning of the Alexandrian Library. HPB did claim however that copies of 
those ancient books were still available in some secret occultist's library 
in the Himalayas. I think it would be difficult for you to prove that HPB 
lied about that, or that she didn't have evidence that such books did exist 
during the time of Plato.
