Solution and filtration
Evaporation and distillation
Separation and rectification
Calcination and commixtion
Purification, inhibition, fermentation,
Multiplication and projection…
the Secret Art of the Land of Khem,
one of the oldest sciences known to the world.
back into the obscurity of prehistoric times,
the mysteries lie deep, lost, and hidden
in the mists of time…
Divinely revealed to Man,
so that by this Alchemy,
He can regain His lost estate
when He sheds this mortal coil…
Concealed behind the Veil of Isis,
Coded in the Path of the Tarot—
lost to the modern world…
Reflect upon this in a moment of silence…
After 300 days
Alexander comes to a majestic mountain
on whose sides hung chains of gold.
And there were two thousand and fifty steps to the top.
Alexander and his 12 princes ascended to the summit
and found a beautiful palace with 12 gates and 70 windows
of the purest gold.
It was called The Palace of the Sun
and inside it contained a shining golden temple
in the shape of a pyramid
wherein they found an ancient, old man with
a great and long white beard.
The great Sage said,
Alexander, thou shalt now see what no earthly man hath ever before seen or heard…
Alexander made answer,
O Sage, most happy, how dost thou know me?
The Sage replied,
Before the wave of the Deluge covered the earth, I knew thy works.
Wouldst thou behold the most hallowed Trees of the Sun and Moon,
which announce all future things?
It is well, my lord; greatly do we long to see them.
Then the Sage said,
Put away your rings and your ornaments, take off your shoes and follow me…
Alexander did so, and choosing 3 of the princes,
and leaving the rest to await his return,
he followed the great Sage, and came to
The Trees of the Sun and Moon.
The Tree of the Sun had leaves of red and gold
and The Tree of the Moon had leaves of shining silver
and they were very great whispering Trees and
they told him very many things…
The forgotten mysteries are not forgotten by everyone…
They are veiled in SYMBOLISM
and revealed through ALLEGORY.
Read between the lines.
Notice that which lies hidden in plain view.
the science of multiplication
based upon the natural phenomenon of growth.
`…nothing from nothing comes…`
It is the process of increasing and improving that which already exists.
God is the `within` and `without` of all things.
Through ART (the process of learning)
the whole mass of base metals (the mental body of ignorance)
is transmuted into pure GOLD (wisdom).
`Within everything is the seed of everything.`
Within the nature of man is reflected the entire universe in miniature,
so in each grain of sand,
each drop of water,
each tiny cosmic particle,
are concealed ALL the elements of the cosmos.
Consider the monads of Leibnitz….
The possibilities are limitless…beyond comprehension…
Sand, marble, granite,
Diamonds, emeralds, sapphires…
All these things come from deep within the earth…
The aim of Alchemy is to carry out in the laboratory
the processes which nature carries out in the interior of the earth—
transmuting base metals into gold and silver and precious stones…
The Philosopher`s Stone
The creation of homunculi
A universal dissolving solvent
A Secret Arcanum
Sulphur >Triune Nature
plus Azoth (a mysterious universal life force)
A tiny particle of the Philosopher`s Stone,
if cast upon the surface of water,
will immediately begin a miniature history of the universe…
for instantly, the tincture, like the spirits of Elohim,
move upon the face of the waters
and a miniature universe rises like a mist in the air and floats,
where it passes through all stages of cosmic unfoldment
and finally disintegrates, returning into dust.
DARKNESS WILL FLY FROM THEE
THIS IS THE STRENGTH OF ALL POWERS
WITH THIS, THOU WILT BE ABLE TO OVERCOME ALL THINGS
Salt, Sulphur, Mercury…
IN THIS TRINITY IS HIDDEN THE WISDOM OF THE WHOLE WORLD.
Take the purest and cleanest sea salt,
made from the rays of the sun.
Dissolve it in dew drops filled with the light of the moon.
Add the powder of Azoth
and a slow fire for 50 days.
12 to 15 days of distillation.
It will become the mercury of the True Philosophers,
the water out of which becomes Gold and Silver…
for they say,
The Father is Gold and the Mother is Silver.
Thus hast thou the strength of both these luminaries
conjoined in this water…
Many, many more wonders of this HOLY ART
might be added,
but we will let this short overview suffice…
and perform miracles…
(derived from ancient alchemical documents…)
“DO WHAT THOU WILT IS THE WHOLE OF THE LAW.”
