For those members that have read through the Practical section of this forum, here
is a question that you my be able to answer.

What is the Philosophers Stone of the Medicinal Path of Alchemy ?

I have not read ALL of the threads but quite a few of them at one point or another.

The philosophers stone of the medicinal path of alchemy is one made from either of the three kingdoms;
It consists of the wedding between the essence(mercury+sulfur) and the body; or the male and female.
This wedding generates an offspring who may be exalted through time and heat.
Once the offspring becomes a grown up "king" he may be nourished by the essence two more times (rotations) for the medicinal realm.
Past this the strength of the stone will be exceeding that to be used for medicine.

A test for this stone is to place it on a hot copper plate at 80 deg C to make sure it does not smoke. Should resist this moderate heat.

From what i have read anyways.
Of course all IMO.

I am perhaps mistaken but I have always understood/believed the PS to NOT be a medicine as such. That is to say that I believe the stone to simply be an abundant source of the "life energy", quintessence that our bodies need and is thus just fuel that we need. Any healing benefits are (I thought) the result of the human body's own in-built self-repair systems which know what to do but need this correct fuel to be able to do it. For example the constant replenishment of body cells is something that happens now for all of us but happens only about every 5-10 years. With access to the "super fuel" of the Stone our bodies can do this cell regeneration far quicker.

Sorry if this diverts what you were aiming from with this thread.

Pilgrim,

I don't think your post takes away from the topic. When we say "the medicinal stone" we are referring to a compounded essence or quintessence which carries a high enough vibratory signature or "life energy" that our bodies can use to increase their own frequency (energy) enabling healing.

I think a charging battery makes a good comparison here.

Say we have two twelve volt batteries. One is at a low charge and is reading 12.0 volts indicating it is at approximately ~ %50 charged.
The other battery is in a charged state and reads 12.7 volts indicating it is either fully charged or very near to it.
If we connect these two batteries via cables (in parallel) the voltage differential will flow from the more charged battery to the less charged battery until a dynamic equilibrium is reached. In this case, the %50 percent battery obtains some charge from the fully charged battery which had a higher energetic state before they became connected.

I see the ingestion of high vibratory foods and elixirs/ quintessences etc as being these "charged" substances that we can take into our bodies to raise the frequency or charge of our body. Of course our body seeks to be in equilibrium with its environment which also makes our living conditions of importance. Same with grounding etc.

I think that your line of thinking is not much different from mine; just you use the term "life energy" which i think is quite suitable a term for what we are discussing here.

Cheers Jimmy.

All living things are essentially energy transfer devices. Including humans. They can take a limited number of types of energy IN and then convert that energy into new forms that their bodies need to function. Humans take in energy from air, from the sun, from food and water and so on. Grass eaters take energy from the grass as well as air, water and sunshine.

However we can't for example plug our human bodies into the national grid and use that electrical energy to power our bodies. Nor can we take live mains wires and touch them to a tree to make it grow faster or better. It's the wrong form of energy for those living things.

We need the right kind of energy and lots of it. If we can get a more raw form of that energy which saves our bodies a lot of time and effort filtering out gross matter and digesting etc then all the better. Everything will happen quicker.

There is for me something very important going on inside a pregnant woman. Something we need to explore and understand.

It's patently clear that a child in the womb is "plugged in" to this great energy source. To use your battery analogy it's like a battery sitting in a charger that is plugged into the mains. Whilst we are young children we are constantly full of energy, "full of beans". We don't feel the effects of extreme heat or cold. We will go and play out in the snow in T-Shirts oblivious to the cold whilst parents wrap themselves in numerous layers of clothing. We will run around in the hot summer sun whilst older people seek for shade. I believe this is because at that stage of life we have large residual amounts of this life energy from being "plugged in" and charging in our mother's womb. Some years later we start to feel that we are now unplugged and simply running on battery charge that is inevitably running out.

Not feeling the extremes of heat and cold is one of the touted benefits of the Stone, as is having lots of energy.

It seems sensible and wise therefore to examine the body of a pregnant woman. The answers we seek must be there. Alchemy 101 is to follow Nature, mimic what Nature does, provide a similar environment for Nature to operate. A pregnant woman patently has the Stone or Quintessence or life energy within her in abundance or is somehow ethereally connected to an infinite supply of it without knowing it. It obviously is just a temporary position because the woman goes on to decay and die like all humans.

Food for thought

"The philosophers stone of the medicinal path of alchemy" ... can be made from ANY of

All it takes is the Alchemic Process of joining of Our Mercury and Our Gold.
This wedding generates an offspring who may be exalted through time and heat.
Correct..... this powerful offspring is what we are after.
Once the offspring becomes a grown up "king" he may be nourished by the essence two more times (rotations) for the medicinal realm.
Past this the strength of the stone will be exceeding that to be used for medicine.
I won't comment on this a present.

Yes .... but there is considerably more to this Test of Fire.:)

Yes Pilgrim you hit the nail on the head with the word Quintessence ... but not just
any Quintessence.

What is required is the Universal Quintessence .... this is the Philosophers Stone of
the Medicinal path of Alchemy.

It is called the Universal Quintessence because it can be extracted from any of the
three kingdoms and IT can also be used to extract Particular Quintessence from any
of the three kingdoms.
Any healing benefits are (I thought) the result of the human body's own in-built self-repair systems which know what to do but need this correct fuel to be able to do it. For example the constant replenishment of body cells is something that happens now for all of us but happens only about every 5-10 years. With access to the "super fuel" of the Stone our bodies can do this cell regeneration far quicker.
Yes I agree with this line of thought .... but we could view the Universal Quintessence
as a starting point to build upon.

Universal Quintessence is the basic building block of Alchemy and from this base many Specific areas of Alchemy branch out.

I was reading somewhere you posted not to add the fixed or dead salts back to the essence.
Fire and Azoth tibi sufficient..?
(Mercury and Sulfur)


"
Qian ☰ the firm and Kun ☷ the yielding join and
embrace one another; Yang endows, Yin receives, the
masculine and the feminine attend one to the other.
Attending, they create and transform, unfolding their
Essence and Breath.

Kan ☵ and Li ☲ are at the fore: their radiance and glow
come down and spread out. Mysterious and obscure,
this can hardly be fathomed and cannot be pictured or
charted.
The sages gauged its depth; one with it, they
set forth its foundation.
These four, in indistinction, are right within Empty NonBeing. Sixty hexagrams revolve around them,
outspread like a chariot. Harnessing a dragon and a
mare, the bright noble man holds the reins of time.
In harmony there are following and compliance: the
path is level and begets no evil. Evil ways obstruct and
hamper: they endanger the kingdom."

"The union of Kan and Li, Ying and Yang"

"Your two parts being thus united, put them into a vessel suitable for this purpose, in such quantity as to take up one third of its volume, leaving the greater portion available for the circulation of the matter. Close the vessel with a temporary seal initially and provide a suitable heat observing whether it sublimes and fixes in due succession. If it proceeds to sublime and shows a disposition and in a due manner subsides at the bottom of the vessel all is well prepared."

F gold, f wealth.

Being poor is great, I am connectet with all kinds of people and love my life. While Hans and Günter are drinking a glass of wine by the fireplace and talking about investments.

I am in the streets at full moon and let the flow of life guide me.

If there really is a philosopher's stone, I'll eat it and become gold myself ☀️🌑

Yes there is much more purpose to our time here than acquiring material riches.
