How compatible are the concepts of the Urantia book with that of the Hermetic philosophies?

Thanks so much for this note to TuthBook. From your question, I will assume that you are somewhat familiar with The Urantia Book, but have not read it yet; you are obviously a student of many kinds of philosophy, so I hope that The Urantia Book will prove helpful to you in sorting out the compatibility of these philosophies with Urantia Book concepts. Knowing God and becoming increasingly closer to God is a cardinal concept in The Urantia Book, so if any evolutionary religion or philosophy fails that test, it would contradict those teachings. That's a good yardstick in the short-term.

Some time ago, we did receive an inquiry from a person specifically following Sefira of Kabbalah, and you can read that response HERE, if you are interested.

Jesus in The Urantia Book:

130:8.2 Said Jesus: "If you truly want to find God, that desire is in itself evidence that you have already found him. Your trouble is not that you cannot find God, for the Father has already found you; your trouble is simply that you do not know God. Have you not read in the Prophet Jeremiah, `You shall seek me and find me when you shall search for me with all your heart'?

And in The Urantia Book, we find an exquisite revelation of God in the first 5 papers (start HERE) so that we CAN get to know him. After that realization, any and all religious writings, spiritual messages, or philosophic thought can be sifted through that experience of knowing God

I do thank you again for your note; maybe it is not what you were hoping for, but still, I hope my reply is helpful. In order for you to know more about The Urantia Book, and how it squares with these other religions and concepts, you'll have to read it, and make these important assessments for yourself. But it should be an enlightening enterprise!

Best Wishes...
