    To try to bribe the ferryman, turn to 67.

    To draw your sword and attack him, turn to 324.

    To say "No thank you" and return to the tavern, go back to 209.

    I collect them yes, all hermetic imagery but I'm specifically searching for the one in the picture cos it's number 23 doubling down on trippy tropes

    Strange and disturbing that the Royal Society of Medicine uses the Hermetic caduceus rather than the more appropriate Staff of Asclepius.

    The two have been confused for over a hundred years since the US Army medical corps adopted a staff with two snakes instead of one as their symbol ca. 1900.

    Not specifically Hermetic, but I've always loved the Egyptian symbolism above the front door to the Wellcome Institute. Not a great photo but the best I could find in five minutes on a lunch break.

    The Illuminati do like to use the music industry for the purpose of creating in jokes. Britney Spears' performance of the song I'm A Slave 4 U at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards in New York City was highly criticized by animal rights group PETA for the inclusion of exotic animals (A tiger and an albino python). For those in the know the song was a blatant reference to significance of defeating shamanic culture in order to enslave the masses. For those who can bear to watch, the video is included below.
    Oh, but of course!

    Found it at last. I'd been within a hairs breadth of it many times. 23 Queen Square near the British museum
