Hello to all, glad to be here!

I'm Malus, please try not to associate the name with any ill meanings beyond just an online handle. Big fan of the dark aesthetic but I'm as harmless as can be.

So I've been studying alchemy as a passing hobby for quite a few years until recently I took the study on more seriously and transitioned from agnostic to hermetic.

I can happily say I have been taking my time with calcination for the past year, and dissolution is not far.

My time here is aimed at being a scholar, learning as much as I can while discussing ideas and perspectives. I will be asking a great deal of questions, and I hope to get just as many answers in return.

Thanks, I've already had a look at all provided links for newcomers.

"How did you transition from agnostic to hermetic?" Well, agnosticism for most people is not following any religions but you still accept the possibility of spiritualism and gods. Because how, as humans, could we possibly know? I grew up in a christian family and fell out of the belief structure not long after my teens, then one day I discovered the 7 stages and the real goal of the great work and it just made sense.

I still don't fully believe in Yhwh, heaven, hell, or any human fabrication of the divine. I believe more in... How to put it? I believe in there being more cogs and wheels churning the universe around than we like to think we know, and alchemy may be the only spiritual science that attempts to comprehend it. It's a big journey of discovery for me, more in the shape of an upward spiral than a road it seems.
