In the mid-1800s, 7 Ancient manuscripts were discovered in the British Museum. Some consider these writings to be the actual words of Master Magician- King Solomon. The manuscripts are considered to be the fountainhead of Kabalistic Magic and the origin of the Ceremonial Magic of Medieval as well as modern times.
Solomon, who reigned as King of Israel in 1000 BC, was renowned for his Wisdom, ""his unhealthy interest in heathen gods"" and as a ""Master Magician.""
S. Liddell MacGregor Mathers, who was a one of the founders and ""True Magician"" of the ""Order of the Golden Dawn,"" translated 'The Key of Solomon the King,' to reveal the Magical Sigils, Signs, and Words used to control the Powers of Magic.
Our Talisman for Wisdom consists of the Fourth Pentacle of Mercury. The Key states ""The Fourth Pentacle of Mercury…This is further proper to acquire the understanding and Knowledge of all things created, and to seek out and penetrate into hidden things; and to command those Spirits which are called Allatori to perform embassies. They obey very readily. Editor's Note.--In the centre is the Name of God, El. The Hebrew letters inscribed about the dodecagram make the sentence, 'IHVH, Fix Thou the Volatile, and let there be unto the void restriction.' The versicle is---'Wisdom and virtue are in his house, and the Knowledge of all things remaineth with him forever.'
It is also said that this seal helps one to ""penetrate the hidden thoughts of others""
