It is Hermes who bridges the gap between the metalinguistic and the sublinguistic in the form of the message, internal linklanguage itself, the medium; he is the internal linktrickster who leads in misleading, the tremendum that echoes through the broken word. Hermes is therefore political, or rather ambassadorial—patron of intelligence and cryptography as well as an internal linkalchemy that seeks only the embodiment of the internal linkreal. Hermes is between text and image, master of the hieroglyphs that are simultaneously both—Hermes is their significance, their translatability. As one who goes "up and down" between spirits and humans, Hermes Psychopomp is the internal linkshamanic consciousness, the medium of direct experience, and the internal linkinterface between these other forms and the political.  "Hermetic" can also mean "unseen".

'Do you not know, Asclepius, that Egypt is an of heaven?  Or so to speak more exactly, in Egypt all the operations of the powers which rule and work in heaven have been transferred down to earth below?'

Already in Homer, Hermes is a multitasking character.  The figure who flits through the _Iliad_ as a messenger and thief becomes in _The internal linkOdyssey_ a guide of souls and a internal linkshamanic healer, curing Odysseus from Circe's witchy poison.  But the god really doesn't find himself at center stage until the pseudo-Homeric _Hymn to Hermes_, written around the sixth century b.c.e.  The poem begins with the nymph internal linkMaya, lately loved by Zeus, giving birth to a boisterous child.  Leaping instantly out of his crib, the babe Hermes dashes into the outside world, where he happens upon a turtle.  He kills the creature, takies up its shell, and invents the lyre, becoming the "first to manufacture songs."
