Any surviving alchemists who are hundreds of years old?

Eyes don't age. No one dies of old age. Its always a condition brought about by decay, not age itself. Your cells make imperfect copies, this is ageing. We think its natural because that's what we see in the world around us from our tiny slice of time. The fish doesn't know all of nature above the water, too it the experiences it has while in the water is the whole of nature. What the fish perceives as natural law is different from what the bird perceives as natural law in the sky above the water. Mankind is the same, from its short space of existence has perceived what it believes is natural. The imperfect copies of cells, ageing, is a genetic fault. It appears as natural law because from our tiny slice of time everything and everyone around us also have this genetic fault. In the future or past depending on your perspective, a mankind that didn't decay would eventually think non decay is natural law from its tiny slice of time.
There are no set in stone natural laws. They differ depending on the biological lifeform and its perspective on its own existence. You need a male and a female to procreate? Not for the sea horse, jellyfish etc.

My dear, you don't post much, but when you do, it's a celebration for heart and mind!

A pretty simple question for me...there are too many facts that the official history is lying to us. And the evidence is multiplying every day. Modern humanity is no more than 280-300 years old. I am absolutely convinced of this. Even in my own city there is obvious evidence of a global cataclysm. I think that the alchemists of ancient times died as well as the entire previous civilization...Therefore, there are no obvious traces of their presence. A lot of people find a lot of evidence for my words every day every day.

No alchemist if he wanted died in the mud flood. If we are talking about those who have real stone then they would have special abilities. If one eats 4th order stone he gains to ability to exist without having to breath or eat. That adept could have simply tied rocks to his feet and sat at the bottom of the ocean until he was tired to it.

I feel like there’s a fair amount of embellishment in your post ;)

Okay, let's try to take a deeper look into this topic then. :D

According to my research, there were at least three civilizations entirely based on what is called occult science nowadays - including alchemy, astrology, magic, sacred geometry and number lore, architecture, medicine - and even technology of a kind hard to comprehend today. It is difficult to say to what degree that kind of knowledge was the guarded property of initiates in each case, but it's safe to assume that there have always been those (relatively few) more knowledgeable in a particular field than the average individual - just the way things are in our time. Even though the degree of attunement to the metaphysical dimensions was generally much higher back then than it is today.

Invariably, before a civilization ends, its knowledge is disseminated throughout (indeed helps initiate) other cultures in turn - even if it survives only in bits and pieces to be reassembled at a later stage. This process follows astrological and numerological cycles which several of those later cultures preserved some understanding of.

The torch bearers of that kind of knowledge transmission are frequently deified as supernatural creators in the cultures they founded over time. Thus you have the astonishingly similar myths of Hermes Trismegistos, Viracocha, Quetzalcoatl, etc.

I am currently working on a book that explores those occult dimensions of mankind's history in depth, however, it won't be the first volume in an intended series of works, so better don't hold your breath. :)

Michael,

The book you are currently working on is not the first volume in an intended series of works?
So you have already written some works for this series?

Is there somewhere that we can purchase your existing works or possibly read them in private?

I would personally be very interested in reading the results of your dedicated research and contemplation.

Thanks!,

J

Jimmy,

I truly appreciate your interest in my work! :)

As the different volumes of the intended series reflect and summarize my ongoing research in various areas, they are each at a different stage of development - ranging from nearly complete in one case to a mere outline with a bunch of notes attached in another!

I was hoping to publish the first volume (which treats Occult Number Lore and Sacred Geometry in relation to Astrology and general Hermetics) in 2022 still, but as matters stand, next year may be a more realistic goal. I will keep you and other forum members posted, of course.

However, a long magazine article on the same topic is almost ready for publication now, and even though it is written in German, I will be glad to digitally send you a copy as soon as that will be feasible.

Very cool and I look forward to it! I know you had mentioned this article to me in the past. I am glad to hear that your labor is coming to fruition :)
I do not know a lick of German but perhaps this is a good opportunity to learn a little.

Cheers

Francisco is the man on the right, this is him a little after the rumors about the stone surface and he returns to Argentina
