The Philosopher Stone:
The Philosopher Stone is a real, tangible physical object. The idea that alchemy is a spiritual practice is a relatively new idea. In ancient times, alchemy was always the study of nature and production of the Philosopher Stone.
The stone begins, in its first form, as a gross & dense matter full of impurities. This matter is refined to a point where its potential energy greatly outweighs its physicality. As in, what the stone itself is, is an object which contains more ENERGY than it does MATTER. For this reason, the stone is very massive (very heavy.)
The process of creation of the stone is exceedingly simple and anyone can do it. However, you must understand nature. This is why the ‘journey’ is worth more than the destination. When you understand nature, and thus have the knowledge to craft the stone, you are in possession of quite possibly the most valuable information any person can hold.
The stone can be likened to the Earth itself. The completed stone is a representation of the evolution of the Earth itself.
Over hundreds of thousands of years, the Earth soaks up the light of the Sun. The Earth is a conscious, living being. It evolves over time just as any plant, animal, or idea does in the real world. The Stone itself is nothing more than the end result of natural processes. As in, the vessel the stone is ‘crafted’ is a usually a spherical flask - a miniature representation of the Earth. All the alchemist does, therefore, is provide the necessary conditions to allow Nature to do what it does all day long.
Overview of Process:
- The First Matter is obtained.
- The First Matter is purified. The potential energy is freed from the matter. In other words, the matter is purified. Reducing it from a dense form into a lighter, more volatile form.
- The Matter is placed into the vessel.
- Heat is applied throughout the duration of the process (which can take a very long time)
The creation process follows the laws of nature. The first matter dies. This is nothing more than the potential energy within the substance being freed. It then reintegrates into the substance. This is where the myth of the phoenix comes from. It is a symbol for the Stone.
The first matter continually divides and recombines. As Above so Below. The substance, or lifeless body of the substance at the bottom of the flask is equivalent to the now freed energy at the top of the flask. The substance repeatedly ‘dies’ and is ‘reborn.’
The end result of this is the Stone.
I do not have a lot of time right now, but expect more soon.
I have discovered the secret of the Stone and can testify to it being a real thing that truly does have all the powers ascribed to it.
