"Plutarch described him as "the most logos-like
of the Gods", the one most closely aligned with Universal Mind. Thoth is
the God of Medicine, Learning, Science, Architecture, Truth, the
Libraries, the Akashic Records, and above all, the God of Magic.
Great colleges, called "Houses of Life", were
established under the guidance of Thoth, where candidates for high
office or the priesthood would be given instruction into the true nature
of the world. This instruction was more than intellectual, the student
was given real, hands-on training on the subtle planes of existence. It
is this experiental knowledge brought back from the invisible realms
that provided the basis of all initiation into the Mysteries."
