The Periodic Table

"Observations show that the same elements exist throughout the known universe. We organize information about the elements in the form of a periodic table. The elements and their interactions are studied in all disciplines of science, as chemicals form the basis of life science, physical science, and earth and space science. As the American Association for the Advancement of Science wrote in 2061, Science for All Americans,“All humans should participate in the pleasure of coming to know their universe better."

I knew I would find a scorpion in here :)

The Great Year is separated into 4 ages, of 6,480 years each, or according to Hinduism in the ratio 4:3:2:1. Every time we move between one of these ages, a big catastrophe occurs
After every catastrophe there is evolution. The conditions on Earth change due to the catastrophe and therefore all life evolves into new forms very quickly. This is how evolution makes big steps over just a fw generations, as we have evidence for but previously no explanation. There have been various races of humans, which look different to us, throughout history. They often get mistaken for aliens. Sorry, no aliens! Only humans of previous races, who had the Stone. Didn't you wonder at how all other animals come in so many shapes and sizes? How many different types of dogs are there? Yet they can still interbreed and they are all still dogs. Well humans come in different shapes and sizes too. Some of them are still around.

These four ages are symptoms of the development/evolution of the Earth. In the same way the Stone is developed, following the laws and cycles of Nature. The planet is evolving as are all life forms living on (or in) the planet. Evolution happens mostly in short bursts. These things are all connected: natural cycles, time, evolution, catastrophies, purification. Purification occurs by water or fire, with these alternating it achieves higher and higher degrees of purification, or evolution.

The moon is bending thru ophiuchus the serpent holder. The serpent has always been an alchemical symbol of immortality,rebirth/death.Ther e is no portion of the occult teachings possessed by the world which have been so closely guarded as the fragments of the Hermetic Teachings. When it was written down at all, its meaning was veiled in terms of alchemy and astrology, so that only those possessing the key could read it aright.

The Hermetic Philosophy is the only Master Key which will open all the doors of the Occult Teachings! From her Secret Doctrine all nations have borrowed." --The Kybalion

In the Greek tale,Ophiuchus tramples on scorpio and having recieved the elixir of life from the serpent,restores Orion(osiris)to life.

The bible as most so-called holy books were written in alchemical/astronomical code.

"In the Christian Mysteries also Judas signifies the Scorpion, and the thirty pieces of silver for which he betrayed His Lord represent the number of degrees in that sign.

The early star gazers, after dividing the zodiac into its houses, appointed the three brightest scars in each constellation to be the joint rulers of that house. Then they divided the house into three sections of ten degrees each, which they called decans. These, in turn, were divided in half, resulting in the breaking up of the zodiac into seventy-two duodecans of five degrees each. Over each of these duodecans the Hebrews placed a celestial intelligence, or angel, and from this system, has resulted the Qabbalistic arrangement of the seventy-two sacred names, which correspond to the seventy-two flowers, knops, and almonds upon the seven-branched Candlestick of the Tabernacle, and the seventy-two men who were chosen from the Twelve Tribes to represent Israel.

In astrological terms, the sun was one element of the zodiac. The moon, planets, and stars were equally important. This is why the homogenized solar zodiac is a quite recent historical phenomenon. Most ancient cultures employed a stellar or sidereal zodiac in which the various animal totems represented aspects of consciousness.

That why in Genesis (Isaiah) Lucifer fell like the morning star. By the time you get to revelations Jesus says he is the morning star. What we are taking about here is not good and evil in the aspect of some fairy tale. You are talking about basic alchemical principles of the body and of the illumination of mankind. Outlawed by the Roman government, and everything that was the inner self became the dark side, it just means the inside. All this stuff was outlawed by the Roman government and now you got to call it religion, and that’s why you can’t learn nothing cause you scared of your own self, Melanin(&od).
They omitted what you call spiritual alchemy lining up the melanin and just focused on turning base metals into gold. So that’s all you hear about alchemy is (somebody) turning base metals into gold. But that is the secondary process. The original process was to turn the base metals inside you to gold. And that gold represented your crown chakra, your aura and all these metals inside you and that is the process of illumination of (melanin) metals.-Bobby Hemmit
Alchemy did not become the study of physical and chemical properties for the sake of creating gold or the likes until Medieval research was done on scattered Egyptian and Eastern texts. Due to poor translation of the time, and a great misunderstanding of spirituality which the greedy "aristocrats" of the time maintained, what was originally intended to be a transcendental system of perfecting the soul became a laughable attempt to transmute gold from base metals, create the elixer of life, find the philosopher's stone, etc. Metaphors and allegory did not appear as possibilities to the translators of the aforementioned texts.

However, metaphors and analogies did indeed create the body of the true alchemy. The "philospher's stone" which the alchemists of medieval Europe labored valiantly to discovered was no actual physical stone, but instead another name for The Great Work, or the sum of the corresponding spiritual doctrines. The idea of the Philosopher's Stone being necessary to transmute base metals into gold was in fact a misinterpretation of the idea that the Spiritual Doctrines were required to transmute the animal(lower) soul into the divine(higher) soul; the ascension from the nephesh into the neshamah, or the travel from malkuth to netzach. The mythical "Universal Medicine" was intended to refer to "that which cleans and makes strong the self." That is to say, the universal medicine which some thought was a physical panacea was in fact simply the vital force, a misinterpretation of the "chi" of the orient. The Elixer of Life, which was intended to bestow immortality upon the consumer, was supposed to be in reference to the spiritual immortality achieved when the soul has strengthened enough to avoid the Kama Loka or the Egyptian Tuat.

That is, anyways, one look on the roots of alchemy, and the only view which makes it practical.

when a certain planet makes a conjunction or a trine aspect with other planets, changes a sign and enters into another sign, then the rays fall otherwise than they did before, for hence it is that such different fruits are product. For the Sun in his exaltation having a conjunction with Mars, the carbuncles are bred with a greater but obscurer shining red, the rubies also of an impure and of a tawny redness, which reason takes place also with the other planets. In cold countries there grow stones, metals and herbs which are not found in the hot.

From ancient sanskrit text 8,000 yrs old

p. 16

"The gravity of the centre of the earth, the gravity of global earth, the solar flood, the air force, the force emanating from the planets and stars, the sun's and moon's gravitational forces, and the gravitational force of the Universe, all together enter the layers of the earth in the proportion of 3, 8, 11, 5, 2, 6, 4, 9, and, aided by the heat and moisture therein, cause the origin of metals, of various varieties, grades and qualities.".

It is not ROCKET SCIENCE to TURN LEAD INTO GOLD.
It is just basic chemistry.
This knowledge is labeled as taboo/witchcraft/etc because if everyone knew it....it would break The Westerns elite's death grip on humanity.
it is actually both alchemy and chemistry, but the most important is alchemy.

but you need no to know chemistry , to be an alchemist are two different sciences. but complementary to one another.

On the other hand, I have been privileged to meet five alchemical mystics who have not only achieved the creation of the white and red stones alike, and have been able to transmute metals and cure sicknesses, but who have also arrested their aging processes with the red elixir. They had no laboratories, and virtually no money. They set up their alchemical workshops in clay in the mountains. One of them even lives on a boulder in a river in China. All five affirmed to me that it required nothing other than some herbs, a stone grinder, something to calcine in, and a distiller. The distiller they made from glass jars with a bent iron pipe, over which cold water is periodically poured (hence they usually set up their work on a riverbank). One of them agreed to actually show me the process of producing gold, which he produced in suitable quantity from copper. He melted the alloy down in a mortar, and dropped a small wax pouch with perhaps a pinch of a yellow-red powder wrapped inside of it, then vigorously stirred them together. When the metal cooled so that it wasn't just red-hot anymore, it was gold. He did this with perhaps a half-pound of material.

I thought you might find the contrasts useful, or at least amusing. Personally, it helped me early on to know that I did not need to spend large amounts of money.

Seek for that Stone which has no fleshly nature, but out of which a volatile fire is extracted, whence also this stone is made, being composed of white and red.”– Basil Valentine.

“Therefore seeing this science treats of the Imperfect Bodies of Minerals, and teacheth how to perfect them; we in the first place consider two Things, viz. Imperfection and Perfection.”– Geber

The word Alchemy comes down to us primarily from Egypt.

-Al or El meaning Divine, from the Hebrew word (EL)ohim, Micha(el), Gabri(el), etc. as mentioned in the Holy Bible, and the Arabic word AL(lah) in the Holy Quran.

-Chem, Khem, Khami, are also names of Ancient Egypt meaning black earth.

Alchemy is therefore first and foremost a Spiritual Science which deals with highly symbolical language. Throughout history, alchemists have taught us that the fundamental principle underlying their operations is the transmutation of base metals into the pure substance of gold. In other traditions we also have a quite similar principle to the one just mentioned. In Freemasonry for example, we have the concept of a Rough Ashlar which according to the Craft is “a stone taken from the quarry in its rude and natural state” and the Perfect Ashlar which is “a stone made ready by the hands of the workmen, to be adjusted by the working-tools of the Fellow Craft” etc.

Following this line of reasoning and prior to Alchemy becoming a science in itself, we may also consider Nature as a whole as being one giant laboratory. In the human body for example, food first enters the mouth in a solid Earthly state, then it must be reduced to a semi-Liquid state in order to pass through the throat all the way down to the stomach. Once our food has reached the stomach the Fire of digestion starts taking place and transforms our Liquid into an almost vaporous or Gaseous State to be absorbed by the body. This is how the physical phenomenon of creating vitality and nourishment through the absorption of food normally takes place. Thus, the whole of Nature is somewhat a playground of daily Alchemical operations.

This science is usually subdivided into numerous categories but for the sake of space we will only concern ourselves with two for the time being:

-Practical Chemistry: The practitioner concerns him or herself solely with the production of physical gold or any other precious matter and disregards the underlying mystical processes of transformation and sublimation. This art takes a lifelong of study and dedication and rarely does the practitioner obtain any spiritual maturity since the whole of his/her study began on a material basis.

-Spiritual Alchemy: The alchemist him or herself becomes part of the actual transformation. The practitioner is not only able to produce physical gold as we know it but is also able to raise himself into unspeakable metaphysical heights of glory. The practitioner attains the knowledge and possession of the Philosopher’s Stone.

Although a genuine Adept never concerns himself with material phenomena, an Apprentice working in a laboratory would normally claim that the very presence of his Master is sufficient to bring about a profound Alchemical operation.

“In any malady of soul or body, a single fragment broken from the precious stone, a single grain of the divine power, are more than sufficient for their cure.”– Eliphas Levi

The possession of the Philosopher’s Stone which in my opinion should be the Alchemist’s Magnum Opus can never be bargained for. An Adept would normally conceal his stone before the eyes of the profane. We may try to bribe him with mountains of gold and other things to no avail. Nay, He would shun the whole world.

SOME THEORIST SAY DINASAURS WERE INTELLEGENT AND SOME EVEN EVOLVED INTO HUMINOID SPECIES THAT DWELL UNDER THE EARTH.
Studies have suggested that had the dinosaurs not been wiped out by yet another cataclysm about 65 million years ago, they would have evolved into a reptile humanoid by now.10 Dale Russell, the senior paleontologist at Northern California University, was asked by the US space agency, NASA, to produce a report .

Do you know there is a white alchemical powder that comes from the body? I will not specify how this is achieved. How does this relate to the symbol of scorpio? Why was a nuke dropped when the sun was in leo?

"In Kaula Agama the 5 pure and eternal substances are ashes, wife's nectar, semen, menstrual blood and ghee mixed together... In occasional rites and in acts of Kama Siddhi the great discharge without doubt and most certainly is what one should do in Kula Agama... One should always consume the physical blood and semen. This, 0 Dearest One, is the oblation of the Yoginis and Siddhas" (Chapter 8).

"Blood is the female (Vama) elixir—mixed with wine and semen it is the Absolute itself!" (Ibid, Chapter 18).

The very first chapter of the Tantra deals with a substance called shambal, which is described by the commentary as a wife's menstrual discharge. This substance allows the Tantrik adept to perform various sorts of alchemy.

In some occult circles they say the earth has two entrances just like our bodies. There is an inner earth with an inner sun . Just like we have an inner sun. Supposedly there is ancient human races still deep beneith the earth with technology above ours. Supposedly they use water as energy and know of hidden passageways to operate their underwater UFO. These are not aliens from another planet supposedly ancient human races that survived prior cataclysms. The Hopi speak of the "Ant people" that dwell below and helped them survive the last cataclysm by taking them to underground caves.

In the Buddhist Mahayana Avatamsaka Sutra reference is made to the alchemical Elixir of Life. It is written in this Sutra: "There exists a Hataka juice or essence. One measure of this solution can transform one thousand measures of bronze into pure gold."

In the Hindu Atharva Veda, which is older than 1,000 B.C. craft. The teachings of Alchemy as a spiritual science can be found in the sacred writings of the Chinese Sage Lao Tze, who was the founder of the Grand Philosophy of the Tao. Alchemy plays a vital part in esoteric Taoism. It is, in fact, the secret tradition of Taoism, its inner teaching as opposed to its outer philosophy.

Alchemists assert the famous Tabula Smaragdina, the Emerald Table of Hermes, to be the chief exposition concerning their alchemical operation by which they achieve the Great Work of the Sun. Legend has it that this Emerald Tablet was discovered by soldiers of Alexander the Great in the hands of Hermes' mummy in the Great Pyramid of Gizah, which was, according to legend, the Tomb of Hermes himself.
