Why do the Emerald Tablets of Thoth mention the Hounds of Tindalos?

These hounds, as far as I’m aware, are either fictional thoughtforms or metaphors. Who would Hermes Trismagistus randomly bring up these hounds from Lovecraftian works?

What are the hounds of tindalos, and why would they even be mentioned in the Emerald tablets? @Yberion might help me answer this question

well, maybe it isn’t as much fiction as you think.

i am fiction aswell, according to that view.

i exist in legend and myth.

is that why you ask me?

i know hellhounds,
not sure if these are the same.

haven’t looked into loftcraftian enteties too much,
i usually try to avoid that area.

Sincerely,

1: HP Lovecraft was very well read in a vast array of subjects, including history, fantasy, mythology, folklore, archaeology, astronomy, psychology, architecture, physics and geography. He was also familiar with Theosophy and the writings of Blavatsky, as well as Sclater’s land bridge theory of the lost continent of Lemuria. It’s not much of a stretch to figure he probably read a translation or two of the Emerald Tablets since history was one of his life long passions.

2: Which version of the Emerald Tablets are you referencing? If it is the “Emerald Tablet of Thoth the Atlantean” by Maurice Doreal, then it is complete fiction, just like Lovecraft’s stories.

I would say the original? I am not sure. I didn’t know there were two, Google tripped me up into thinking THE emerald tablets were written in 1940 as a channeled piece

I hate Lovecraftian entities. They taste of solid, even in “helping”. At worst, they hate you and everything you Stand for. Even thinking about them reminds me of thst one rough time I channeled naryethlotep

It’s just that these hounds keep showing up and I want to know the meaning and the origin of these hounds that come through corners to hunt someone down.

Well, yes, but he also said they specifically travel through angles, a specifically tindalos quality

And also, like the hounds of tindalos they track you down until they kill you relentlessly for all of time.

I know, but most spirits give up eventually, or can be rendered useless by more than fucking spheres

My point is, the fact that the tablets, the TABLETS of all works and Lovecraftian lore both mention this, this very specific phenomenon with no contradictions, is weird. Everything in the tablets have a purpose. Why this of all things?

Be honest, aren’t you curious?

I don’t know what he’s referring to , it’s an advanced text , the most comprehension I get is when I play during sleep , my subconscious will start to comprehend it , I’m extremely drawn to Thoth , more so than any other entity by a lot

i have to agree with john_wick,
and the easy (but barely comprehendable) answer is:

Invoke P’tah.

that’ll help you understand it much better.

Yeah, that would be the completely fictional “Emerald Tablet of Thoth” by Doreal, which actually has nothing whatsoever to do with the real Emerald Tablet of Hermes.
