I discovered this...

This is the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Let a cow graze on the Emerald pastures that carry the dew of the Month of May.

Retrieve the nectar that flows freely in the promised land of Canaan.

Discard the nectar of bees.

Eat only of the genus Cruciferae, washing down with the nectar.

The wind bore it in the womb.

Its nurse is the earth, the mother of all perfection.

Its power is perfected in one full moon night when the child is expelled.

Capture the child in a hermetically sealed vessel and find the darkest cave.

It should be kept from the Father and nursed by the Mother until digested into air.

It is plain that wind is air, and air is life, and life is spirit.

In the last light of Sirius inhale of the essence.

By it the world was formed.

If these steps are not followed all you will gain is a fart in a jar. - source

And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites. – Exodus 3:8
Source

I believe the text refers to milk when talking of “the nectar that flows freely in the promised land of Canaan”, and as it says to “discard the nectar of the bees” then this means to collect the milk alone.

Where it states, “Eat only of the genus Cruciferae, washing down with the nectar.” I think this implies that the milk should be ingested with the Cruciferae.

The Cruciferae is an old word for Brassica, these include the root (rutabaga, turnips), stems (kohlrabi), leaves (cabbage, collard greens), flowers (cauliflower, broccoli), buds (Brussels sprouts, cabbage), and seeds (many, including mustard seed, and oil-producing rapeseed).

I believe the rest speaks for itself.

Am I interpreting this correctly in thinking that it implies that the quintessential components of my farts can be utilized through correct diet preparation and a full Luna months digestion finishing on the day of the full moon?

That is F****** awesome. I'm going to try it immediately.

It only took 6 months till someone "smelled" the key of The Path of the Brown Lion. Well done! Don't forget to use a Mason Jar.

And please report your findings, this is only theory so don't know if it even can work. But sense of smell is one of the strongest senses, so why shouldn't it work... ;)

I would suggest slow motions...no pun intended...as you will not be able to see what you have captured and moving too fast may waft a lot of what you are trying to capture out of the jar.

Good allegory.

One should consider what is the airy form of "the waste" or "remnant" in the main process that is related to life! Think more general / simple terms than methane.

What's a bit saddening at times, is that the mystery of what is being described gives an air of authenticity to itself. If you put it in plain words that everyone with a basic high school scientific education can understand, likely most of us would not even care to explore the idea any further, because it would be too plain, too easy. And we would all know... from a brief querying of the intellect, that whatever process is being described simply should not work! Ah... the humor of it all! The idea that the mystery needs to be mysterious and serious is a barrier to understanding.

Some of these secret processes, shown clearly, are ignored because they are no longer mysterious processes! Give the process a bit of humor and obviously it devolves into a fart joke. And we all known that "truth" has certain qualities, right? Or does it? Sometimes the more you want it, the longer it takes. The stone of constipation of the intellect is not the stone.

Ex-fucking-actly.

The Brown Lion exposes this, but also by doing that it, also, reveals something that in its core "works".

Because truth is found in a joke. And everything but the joke is the true "joke".

Okay, let's talk about real shit.

1. Nothing spells 'The Stone that the Builders Rejected' more than shit... :)

2. The Centrum Naturae is in everything, so...

The Centrum Naturae is in everything, so...

The process requires an action and something to act upon.
This is simple, because without anything to act upon, no action can occur. Even the idea of genesis required something to act upon, even if that something was "nothing". The nothing had to be defined in some fashion in order to prepare it to receive the action of creation.

The salt which is not a salt is a result of the action, or the process, and not that which is being acted upon. Thus we can say that in theory all things can "bring it forth", so long as they can be acted upon by the process or action, but the salt is a resultant of the action, and not that which is being acted upon.

Now of course some things do in fact contain it, either cleanly, or mixed up with other things, but we must consider the genesis of that matter as well: it contains it, but where did it get it? Inquiry into this line of though will show the starting material "got it" initially from the actions of the process, either directly, or by the incorporation of some other matter that itself got it from the process.

So then why not go to the source?

What is the process? It is what we would call the production of feces - but I think to understand what this means involves a long winded adventure into historical inquiry, language, the development of ideas, meaning, metaphors, cultural ideologies, etc.

Enough to say it is a waste byproduct - or a life-byproduct, or a death-byproduct. Of course anything that is alive is caught up in the cycle of life/waste/death/life .... so we can get it as a byproduct of any starting material. But this does nothing to clarify what we need to do, but it does throw light on something else: if this is the byproduct, what is it that is going through the cycles to produce it? This is the best starting material that will most easily and cleanly produce the salt.

That material isn't a hard to find thing either. What did god make man out of? The red earth? Dust? Some words? (These things, again, are not to be taken literally).

SALAZIUS: A bit of humor: The other day I saw one of those trucks which delivers and cleans portable toilets. I imagined that, back at their warehouse, in secret they are producing the medicine of the philosophers, and this explains why they are so happy in their jobs. Why to them it's a source of the most precious thing, whereas for everyone else they just walk the other way and hold their noses when they see the shit-truck show up!

The process requires an action and something to act upon.

Yes, 'Heaven' (Spirit) and 'Earth'. The Central Salt/Earth/Adamah of all bodies contains Spirit/Fire, but it is mostly 'asleep'. It needs to be awakened just like Sleeping Beauty, with a 'kiss' from the Waking Life/Spirit, or at least with a uniquely potent fart :)

This is the best starting material that will most easily and cleanly produce the salt.

The Salt/Earth is best corporified through 'Water', just as the Spirit (Water)/Heaven is corporified through 'Air', if we want to work 'naturally' and continue from where unaided nature ceases.

But there are other options at our disposal.

One well-known technique of reaching an altered state of consciousness is suffering, dancing till you drop, mantra, pain, fasting... anything done to reach a state of ecstasy. The distance between pleasure and pain is an extremely fine line. I personally have had experiences in sex when the orgasm bordered on pain (but never crossing over). Hitchcock famously shoot a murder scene like a love scene and a love scene like a murder scene. Etc.

My point is that such shamanic techniques put pressure on our senses... the most powerful (especially concerning memory) is our sense of smell. I think you can figure out the rest of my point (and I think I pointed it out before)... ;)

So yes in this case I would take the text as literal as possible. But it works allegorically as well.

If you simply heap up the manure in your yard, the foul smell will vitiate the whole atmosphere, but if you spread it over your garden round your house, it will be filled with pleasing smell. What you call “foul smell” is only the undeveloped form of “fragrance,” not hostile to it. A discordant note is nothing but the undeveloped and disarranged form of the harmonious notes that blend so well in perfect music. - source

Is the path of the Brown Lion perhaps the work of the Devil?

Gosh at least in the preceding posts the members attempted to reason on the thread topic, or add something of value, mixed in with a little humour.

I get that we all get carried away or whatever but this place could be so much better without posts like this.
What is this adding besides hate for a specific group of individuals..?
I almost didn't comment; but because I think free speech is important within the guidelines of the forum I will do so because likely I am not the only one here is not a fan of the 15 year old antics.

This place is full of insightful posts and speculation and can continue to generate that kind of material to the benefit or detriment of the readers I should say if I am being honest.. (because this place is like a maze in itself with a bit of everything.)

I hope going forward that people choose to share their thoughtful reasoning, regardless of their perspective and minimize the amount of hate and negative activity overall however it will ultimately be whatever the members make it. In my opinion if you really care about Alchemy you would (especially as a moderator!) want this place to be as clean and pristine as possible.

In regards to the thread topic; I do have a comment and perhaps it is somewhat coming in from a side angle to the topic.
I have experimented with urine in the past.. this gave me a some valuable lab experience at the time and taught me to be cautious..
I do not work with urine any more but would be getting ahead of myself to discourage anyone from doing so at this point.
I remember drinking wine the evening before a collection; and then collecting early in the morning. Also around the full moon.
I was able to get a ruby/orange fluid from the stuff from some light/moderate heating and then could distill a strong spirit with a retort also at low temps. I played around with this; and would cycle it around etc, was more or less experimenting.
Very pretty results, but I never felt good enough about any of this to use it as a potential medicine. I did however taste the salts that would volatilize and penetrate through the stopper on the retort and had some strange experiences during this time frame.

Why drink the wine before collecting urine?
I think that normally urine and feces are more or less a waste product; however the urine is a very clean "waste" product because it is skimmed off the blood by the kidneys and usually is the excess of fluid, circulating vitamins etc. (whereas the poop is the dense matter after the body pulls whatever it can from the foods we eat.) Urine however holds what is not able to be utilised in the blood. Normally there is probably not much of interest in it because we utilize most if not all of "the good stuff" maintaining our vessel.
So I noticed after an evening of moderately drinking wine (1/2 to 1 bottle) which to me is "moderate/heavy" 2-4 glasses in an evening
that the next morning I was extremely susceptible to gases that normally would not bother me much. I couldn't bear the outside air near my truck because the exhaust that was intermingling with the air I was breathing completely entered me asif I was a magnet for it or for certain constituents in it. I felt like I had smoked a cigarette just from a breath of exhaust tinged outdoor air which was a slight every day exposure which normally would not affect me.
( i don't normally smoke cigarettes but I have tried them and I have to sit down from the head rush.)

The idea I had at the time was that alchohol/spirit is attractive or has the ability to make the body attractive to some things, perhaps air, certain gases, oils etc. So when you are quite intoxicated or just afterwards maybe your body is working a little differently with the change of fluids from water intake to alchohol intake. We notice the physical effects of inebriation but maybe there is more to it.

Perhaps this is why the references to drinking wine the night before and during a full moon because it makes the vessel more attractive to "the good stuff" or whatever is in the air, allowing you to run an excess and pee it out. Alchohol is like a liquid fire, and all fire needs air.

One last thought,
In regards to the brown component, I think composting makes alot of sense!

When the Book Of Aquarius forum was up and running around 2009/2010 I made a similar point to the alleged author of the book.

It made absolutely no sense to me that if the body needed some magical "life energy" and that life energy was in urine, then why the hell would the body expel it? Just made no sense whatsoever. I think after all these years further on the situation is actually that the urine contains within it a salt/structure that is extremely useful for holding the "life energy". So by art we reveal that salt and we combine it with our Mercury and together that "wedding" somehow acts as a magnet to attract the "life energy" which gets held/fix't in the structure (again through art).

I think the theory is that the urine contains components that can act as a magnet to attract the SM.

Indeed. Why then is this not already a natural process of the human body?

Simple questions follow:

1. Does the human body need this spirit, SM, HIM, god particle whatever in order to function and survive?

If yes then it must already have a mechanism for that otherwise mankind would have died off millennia ago

If no then alchemy is introducing a completely foreign/unnatural substance into human existence. That being the case is it possible that alchemy and the Stone actually "kills" you in terms of being human and turns you into something else? If so what? And is that a good thing?


2. Did the human body originally have an in-built mechanism to attract and process SM, HIM, spirit etc

If yes, then why have we seemingly lost it? Has it been deliberately removed from our DNA/make-up? If so by which entities?

There is a theory that in order to create the Stone you need a human body, thus the Stone is a sacrament like communion ultimately cannibalistic... blood of Christ, body of Christ.
