A THEOSOPHIST : APOLLONIUS OF TYANA

I know not what illustration will be adequate to so vast and transcendent a doctrine, let us take the instance of a ship, such as the Egyptians build and send into our seas when they traffic Egyptian for Indian commodities. There was an ancient ordinance concerning the Erythrean Sea which forbade the Egyptians to enter it in a ship of war and restricted them to a single merchantman. Accordingly the ingenious Egyptians designed a vessel to be a match for many ordinary craft. To the keel and ribs, which are the framework of a ship, they added extra height of bulwarks and mast, and fitted the vessel with several cabins, like the usual deck-house. She carries several masters, all under the orders of the senior and most experienced ; several captains of the forecastle, a crew of picked men, very smart and quick at going aloft ; and a force of heavy-armed troops as well : for she has to fight the natives in the Gulf, in case of a predatory attack by their cruisers. We may believe that the Universe is analogous to this. Thus, when we consider it in terms of this vessel, the first and most authoritative post is to be assigned to the god who created this animal or creature ; the next, to those gods who are in command of its several divisions. And since the poets assure us it is so, let us take their word for it that there are many gods in the heavens, many in the sea, many more in springs and river-floods, and many whose province is earth, and some also beneath the earth. But the region beneath the earth (if it exists), since they sing of it as a place of horror and corruption, we must exclude from our Universe.

An Interview with the Spirit of Achilles
IT was not by any necromancy of the blood of lambs that I attained to conversing with Achilles, but by offering such prayers as the Indians say that they offer to their illustrious dead ancestors. I used these words: ` O Achilles, the world says that you are dead, but I do not allow this notion, nor did Pythagoras, the progenitor of my Science. If, then, we speak
