Hello friends,
My name is Benjamin which means "Son of My Right Hand" in the original Hebrew, hence the username.

I would first like to apologize for the delay in posting my introduction. I seem to have had the virus. Luckily, my doctor was not fooled by the propaganda and choose to treat my illness aggressively with HCQ and I have made a quick recovery.

Next, I would like to thank you all for allowing me to join this forum. I consider it a privilege to correspond with my fellow Artists.

My first encounters with the Royal Art were in an academic setting while I studied English and Philosophy. For the capstone (final project) of my Bachelor's of Arts in English with a minor in Philosophy, I wrote a paper examining the alchemical structure of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" and revealed the secret, transmutational narrative beneath the surface. After graduation, I continued to study the Art in the context of psychology, the occult, high (divine) magik, and eventually philosophy.

Many of the mysteries of the Art still evade me but in my most recent study of a vast array of subjects including space/counterspace, sacred geometry, magnetism, plasma physics, field physics, conjugate incommensurability, and cosmology have all brought me back to the Art.

It is in relation to all of these subjects that I wish to discuss the Art and perhaps in the material realization of the Magnum Opus.

Here's to the secrets that keep themselves.

Hello and welcome to Alchemy Forums.

space/counterspace, sacred geometry, magnetism, plasma physics, field physics, conjugate incommensurability, and cosmology have all brought me back to the Art.

I first learned about the concept of Countersapce from materials by Eric Dollard, and later discovered the YouTube channel of "Fractal Woman", which helped me understand those concepts better (easier language). Ken Wheeler also presents some interesting ideas on his YouTube channel. Maybe on a different dedicated thread, you would be willing to elaborate how do you find those concepts related to Alchemy?

That sounds interesting.
You should put up a post detailing that, it’d be great to hear more about it.

Indeed they do.

Thank you and thanks for your reply!

Yes, I came across the term in a similar manner while researching plasma cosmology. I find a lot of Ken's ideas compelling but I won't lie, his use of jargon and the difficulty he seems to have simplifying and explaining things in simpler terms can be maddening since I'm not sure how much of it is him and how much of it is an act. I too found my way to Fractal Woman's channel, and I thought she had done a decent job explaining it until I started reading a book about Space and Counterspace. Without getting too far off topic (I'll save the rest for a dedicated thread), the connection has to do with the counterspacial geometry of each state of matter, those corresponding to the elements, the platonic solids, and something yet unknown to me. I do believe that understanding electricity and the aether will be the key, though.

Thank you for your reply!

I'm actually excited at that prospect. It's been years since I've revisited that work. It would be fun to explore those concepts again.
