It has also been popular with nineteenth and twentieth century occultists and esotericists, among whom the expression "as above, so below" (a modern paraphrase of the second verse of the Tablet) has become an often cited motto.
Truth! Certainty! That in which there is no doubt!That which is above is from that which is below, and that which is below is from that which is above,working the miracles of one [thing]. As all things were from One.Its father is the Sun and its mother the Moon.The Earth carried it in her belly, and the Wind nourished it in her belly,as Earth which shall become Fire.Feed the Earth from that which is subtle,with the greatest power. It ascends from the earth to the heavenand becomes ruler over that which is above and that which is below.
The tablet was also translated into Latin as part of the longer version of the pseudo-Aristotelian Sirr al-asrār (Latin: Secretum Secretorum, original Arabic above). It differs significantly both from the translation by Hugo of Santalla (see above) and the vulgate translation (see below).
True it is, without falsehood, certain and most true.That which is above is like to that which is below, and that which is below is like to that which is above,to accomplish the miracles of one thing.And as all things were by contemplation of one, so all things arose from this one thing by a single act of adaptation.The father thereof is the Sun, the mother the Moon.The wind carried it in its womb, the earth is the nurse thereof.It is the father of all works of wonder throughout the whole world.The power thereof is perfect.If it be cast on to earth, it will separate the element of earth from that of fire, the subtle from the gross.With great sagacity it doth ascend gently from earth to heaven. Again it doth descend to earth,and uniteth in itself the force from things superior and things inferior.Thus thou wilt possess the glory of the brightness of the whole world, and all obscurity will fly far from thee.This thing is the strong fortitude of all strength,for it overcometh every subtle thing and doth penetrate every solid substance.Thus was this world created.Hence will there be marvellous adaptations achieved, of which the manner is this.For this reason I am called Hermes Trismegistus, because I hold three parts of the wisdom of the whole world.That which I had to say about the operation of Sol is completed.
Tis true without lying, certain and most true.That which is below is like that which is above and that which is above is like that which is below to do the miracle of one only thingAnd as all things have been and arose from one by the mediation of one: so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation.The Sun is its father, the moon its mother, the wind hath carried it in its belly, the earth is its nurse. The father of all perfection in the whole world is here. Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth.Separate thou the earth from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry. It ascends from the earth to the heaven and again it descends to the earthand receives the force of things superior and inferior.By this means you shall have the glory of the whole world and thereby all obscurity shall fly from you.Its force is above all force, for it vanquishes every subtle thing and penetrates every solid thing.So was the world created.From this are and do come admirable adaptations where of the means is here in this.Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world.That which I have said of the operation of the Sun is accomplished and ended.
Students are required to take a minimum of 18 additional relevant course units in their home concentration or other neuroscience areas. Some examples are listed in sections C, D, & E above as well as in the list below. At least 9 of these units must be at the 300-level or above.
Next, all this focus on monkeying around with visual editors, typography "refreshes" that are user-hateful, and gee-whiz stuff that seems more aimed at making Wikia sites look "cool" than doing anything useful for WP (and Wiktionary, etc.) editors has been a waste of WMF resources, and lots of them. Every second spent on crap like that instead of fixing core MW parser bugs (or just replacing the parser) is a brick in the wall separating committed editors from encyclopedic productivity. There are virtually no users who can contribute meaningfully, long-term, who cannot handle a source-code-view editor with some practice. Meanwhile, the errors inevitably introduced by "I need it simple, like MS Word" people using visual editors all have to be fixed by experienced editors who could be working on content or other things of import. In this, I disagree with some of the commenters below, who are hot for WYSIWYG editing.
As someone who has donated annually to WMF for years, I assumed (apparently incorrectly) that the money was needed to run the servers, pay for the minimal staff needed to run the foundation, etc. To find out that there is US$6 million that you're now planning to disseminate, I'm absolutely amazed. A country and organization such as DE, UK, NL, IS, etc. should NOT need funds to sustain itself, and if it does, then the donations should come from that country. I agree that if there is extra money, it should be used in the following ways: 1) create a reserve fund for the ongoing maintenance and enhancement of the technology infrastructure necessary to run the wiki. I believe a 2-3 year reserve is required. 2) promote the dissemination of knowledge in the underserved regions (not necessarily on a country-by-country basis) of the planet. There have been a lot of comments above discussing terrorism and other results of poor education. If our mission is to educate and inform, then giving 25% of the money to Germany - one of the best educated countries on the planet - is contrary to our mission and purpose. If these proposals are funded, I shall not donate to WMF again. It's bad enough we waste valuable resources in the wiki maintaining pages of movie characters and fictitious anime, but to spend this kind of money in first-world countries is not only a shame, but borders on unethical.

Second, I realize that there might be (see above) some rules or something [e.g. perhaps some deadline that I missed?], that (had I known about them) (sooner) might have made a difference in some way. I am hoping that my idea (see below) can still be considered on its merits, "if any" (vs. "good idea, but we intend to ignore it, as it was submitted too late / in the wrong place / ...etc.") 2b1af7f3a8
