“As above, so below” refers to a principle stemming from ancient Egyptian mythology. It is usually connected with Thoth in particular, the god of the Moon, magic and writing. He was believed to be the scribe of the gods and a measurer recorder of time. Ancient Egyptians associated Thoth with speech, literature, arts and learning. They also credited him as the inventor of writing and the 365-day calender. Furthermore, they credited him with making the calculations for the establishment of the heavens, stars, Earth, and everything in them.

Like other figures in Egyptian mythology, Thoth held many titles, some of them being: the ‘One who Made Calculations Concerning the Heavens, the Stars and the Earth’, the ‘Reckoner of Times and of Seasons’, the one who ‘Measured out the Heavens and Planned the Earth’. He was ‘He who Balances’, the ‘God of the Equilibrium’ and ‘Master of the Balance’. ‘The Lord of the Divine Body’, ‘Scribe of the Company of the Gods’, the ‘Voice of Ra’, the ‘Author of Every Work on Every Branch of Knowledge, Both Human and Divine’, he who understood ‘all that is hidden under the heavenly vault’.
