Earth was as woman, her Water filled with longing;
ripeness she took from Fire, spirit from Aether.
Nature thus brought forth frames to suit the form of Man.
And Man from Light and Life changed into soul and mind – from Life to soul, from Light to mind.

Corpus Hermeticum, Poimandres

To the land of no return, the land of darkness,
Ishtar, the daughter of Sin directed her  thought,
Directed her thought, Ishtar, the daughter of Sin,
To the house of shadows, the dwelling, of Irkalla,
To the house without exit for him who enters therein,
To the road, whence there is no turning,
To the house without light for him who enters therein
