(Greek) In the pure esoteric tradition (not the modern, degenerated remnants), hermaphrodite means "a son of Hermes and Aphrodite" (Herm-Aphrodite), one who physically develops the brain power, objective reasoning (Hermes) by means of the transmutation of its own sexual libido (Aphrodite).
Physically, hermaphrodite refers to the human being of the Lemurian epoch, who developed both male and female sexual organs and characteristics in the physical body and who was capable of self proliferating its species without the necessity of sexual intercourse. Thus, a true hermaphrodite is a human being who physically produces sperm and ovum within their masculine-feminine sexual genitalia. In order to create, they fecundate themselves (in a manner similar to other hermaphrodite creatures); they physically unite the outcome of their own two sexual polarities (sperm and ovum) by means of willpower.
"Let us clarify here that when we talk about hermaphrodites, we are talking about perfect androgynous beings, and not about those degenerated homosexuals of this day and age." - Samael Aun Weor, Kabbalah of the Mayan Mysteries
