Are we talking about the same Emerald Tablet that was the emerald that fell from Lucifer's crown as He was cast out of Heaven? If so, it makes perfect sense. He sent The Serpent into Eden to grant Humanity wisdom. It could be He gave us the keys to the technology of The Gods, as well. We have used this gift to make wonders, and, at the same time, nightmarish things. We came a long way in a short span of time. We went from living in caves, fearing the darkness, using sticks and stones to building cities, lighting the night with fire(it's been thought The Greeks may have harnessed electricity) and making tools using metalurgy. That is the very basis of Alchemy. Transmutation. Turning something ordinary, into something extraordinary. To quote Death from "Hogfather" by Terry Pratchett, "TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE." We are in the process of Becoming. Becoming what you ask? Only The Fates know for sure.
This make any sense to anyone?
