Let's play a game.
Explain what Alchemy is in just one short sentence.
It doesn't have to be unique. It can be a slight modification of someone else's answer.
It can be very short and cryptic, or longer and more clear.
I'll start...

"Spirit transference through intermediates"

A good idea, and something I have time for!

Alchemy is a little like the wheels on a bike which are composed of rims, spokes and hubs and when all three work in harmony you can hop on your bike and go for a ride!

Alchemy is all about having a clear understanding of the causes of physical (and higher) processes in nature and a clear understanding of how to manipulate said causes to bring about desired changes in the processes they effect.

Clear understanding is important in advancing in Alchemy. I think most people enjoy being cryptic while discussing about alchemy related subjects because it hides the fact they do not have a clear understanding about alchemy in general and in particular. They mostly fumble through the entire process hoping to hit paydirt someday.

The cryptic works of alchemy books was meant for reincarnated students of alchemy to pick up from where they stopped. They alone already know the method of interpretation as it was meant for them. The uninformed who are trying to decide the works are wasting their time.

Alchemy is higher dimensional science and is ridiculously easy to understand. Aliens visiting us use this science.

It only seems hard if you do not have facts at hand and if you are trying to decode encrypted works not meant for you.

In one short sentence: Order out of Chaos.

Commentary: Artificially/operationally harnessing and applying negentropy ("our fire") to substantially increase the internal order and structural coherence in matter ("our matter").

It's the 'holy grail" of science and occultism alike, basically "reversing entropy". While this is very much doable in microcosmic settings, i.e. on a small scale and ideally using a matter that is at least entropy-neutral as "patient", it's quite damn near impossible to operate in large/complex/hyper-chaotic/high-entropy systems (i.e. social, political, biosphere, etc...). This being said, all world-wide ELE-type "resets" are employing the same mechanism of introducing vast levels of negentropy into the entire realm/macrocosm. A literally "scorched earth" can become lush and full of life within days or weeks (in linear/horizontal time). Such large-scale operations are much less likely to be attainable by humans... and not for lack of trying...

Respectfully, you are actually wrong as to the amount of "our fire or magical energy" needed to cause a world-wide ELE-type resets. Things like this for example rainfall rely on what is called the "buttery-fly effect", whereby a small input of energy causes a system already at the edge to collapse into order.

One of the major sources of magic is our SUN which at this point in Time outputs almost zero amount of magic due to its wrong configuration. The right configuration of the SUN to output MAGIC is its magnetic polarity to be at right angle to its axis of rotational movement so that the SUN configuration leads to a rotating magnetic field of High Magnetic field strength and low rotational frequency. This right configuration of the SUN causes it to accelerate electrons to "ULTRA RELATIVISTIC ROTATIONAL AND TRANSLATIONAL" velocity. Each of these spiraling electrons carry the ability to affect TIME. They are the carrier of "TIME ENERGY".

Even though the SUN is not in the right configuration to output magic at this point in time, an artificial source of MAGIC like a device built using the MAGVID principles pointed at the SUN will cause it to move into the RIGHT CONFIGURATION like an Orgone Cloud BLUSTER or RAINMAKER.

The reason while the techniques to make the philosopher stone like the GW method, Morning Dew method, Natural salt method, e.t.c "do not work" is because the starting conditions that existed when these techniques were created do not exist now.


The "STARTING CONDITION" is that the SUN is outputting MAGICAL ENERGY

For now though, i am focused on building a community of co-operative individuals for our own common benefits as that is the right way to go. Slowly replace the foolish people:cool: with matured people till the earth is finally filled with harmony.:D

LOL. Shame on me. Back to the drawing board, I guess :p

LOL:cool: i do not think that Magic will solve any of our social problems as that is a personal decision to be made by each individual. MAGIC in the hands of the current MADMEN ruling the world at this Time will only make things worse. WE have to make a Conscious decision to Co-operate in-order to solve our problems and make this life a paradise for ourselves. MAGIC is just like any-order advanced technology. it is only a Tool to be use for either Harmonious behavior or Disharmonious behavior.:)

The foolish actions of the present world citizens should not be rewarded with more technology to encourage the foolish.

If at all magical technology should be introduced to the world citizens, it should be as a service like magical public transportation owned and controlled strictly by the Adepts as was done during the Time of Atlantis at antarctic continent by the Aliens that gave them technology.

This should be done until Mankind is matured enough to handle MAGIC without abusing for selfish and destructive purposes without consideration of other beings as they usually do.

Order out of Chaos is also the essence of Anarchism, which is why I would claim that any alchemist by default need to be an anarchist.

:p

Transformation of one vulgar thing into many things which we then purify and assemble back into one thing which is perfect.
