        theres three people in there: the monk, the alchemist and the warrior. all three essential parts of a man looking for enlightenment.

        who is on top of the alchemist and the monk?
        also… what is in the book (down left) and what is its meaning?

          It’s a sword. If you can decipher its meaning, you’ll be very close to attaining immortality.

                  It’s more than just physical immortality. The immortals have a perfect body made of pure spirit, and the power to take any physical form they like. I’ve heard that some of them choose to keep living as humans, to teach and help other people.

                  I suggest starting with Fulcanelli’s ‘Dwellings of the philosophers’, he’s the clearest and most honest of them all. Any author he quotes from is also worth checking out. There’s also an ebook called ‘Alchemy deciphered’ which is basically just a list of excerpts by famous alchemists, sorted by topic. It’ll give you a nice overview of alchemical theory, and provide you with the keys to keep making progress, even if you understood nothing of Fulcanelli.

                  I have to warn you, though: being an alchemist is basically playing detective. You won’t find the full method clearly explained in plain words, anywhere, and believe me, I’ve looked. You’ll find some clues here, some there, and you’ll be supposed to figure out on your own which are true and false, and how they all fit together. There are many dead ends. It gets easier once you have a solid understanding of the basics and of how alchemists thought, because then you can see past the metaphors and the lies.

                        Joseph of Yeshua:
                        "Amazing, I think you either noticed it too, again, back in those days, Alchemist would hide their literary works or alchemical formulas, some that may have been considered heresy, in containers out in the open, rather than in obvious places like safes under lock and key. Like in the box with the HEART-APPLE amidst the mess and rummage. The date is in the 1850’s well after the Inquisition eras, but as you can see, the Masons or Illuminati show the now-defunct traditions of their history in secrecy through art even to this day.

                        I agree with you though. I think your take is tied to what the HEART-APPLE symbolized for them back in the day.

                        THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE IS THE ONE WHO THE ILLUMINATI WERE ANTICIPATING.

                        They probably got impatient and just stopped obsessing over the HEART-APPLE secrecy."

                      The first path is the correct one, though it blends a bit with the third, since ‘body refinement’, in the context of alchemy, means the creation of a ‘spirit body’.

                      Not yet, because there are still a few things I don’t fully understand.

                        I don’t think such a list can be compiled, because the most efficient path will vary from person to person, and it also partly depends on luck (assuming luck exists); sometimes I’ve found very important clues when I wasn’t specifically looking for them, but reading forums and blogs; I’ve often jumped from book to book, not finishing them but reading only selected parts, and I’ve gone back to some books multiple times. I couldn’t even tell you what order I followed.

                        I’m sorry but those posts are very far from the truth. He’s trying to approach alchemy from a modern scientific point of view, which is a common mistake. Fulcanelli wrote of how, at the age of 24, he had to forget everything he’d learned in school and start over again from scratch, learning this new (ancient) science. Alchemy is so simple that a stupid person may be able to understand it, and at the same time, so mysterious that a scientist would have trouble accepting it.

                        Have you been able to create any of the other stones? There’s a silver stone that turns anything into silver. There’s also a red stone. However, I’m unaware as to what red meant. Lastly, there’s a plant stone and an animal stone. One guy claimed the plant stone is the entry level one for beginner’s to start out with. With the Philosopher’s Stone being the final one.

                        Regarding that post: alchemy never turned into chemistry, spagirics did. Spagirics is what people nowadays think of when they imagine an ancient alchemist – an old man in his lab, experimenting with different materials and equipment, trying to find the perfect formula and occasionally blowing himself up. But most people back then, just as today, didn’t know what real alchemy is about. The confusion arises from the fact that real alchemists used the same language as the spagirics, in order to hide the truth from the ignorant.

                        The symbol he posted does indeed contain the whole truth, albeit in a simplified form, and for those ‘with eyes to see’, it also gives a big clue as to what the philosophers’ stone is.

                        To answer your question, I’ll say that there’s only one stone, which is not a common stone, and the various stones (vegetable, mineral, animal) are just metaphors to describe its attributes. The reason the plant ‘stone’ is considered the easiest to make, is because it comes into play at the beginning of the work: it contains the philosophical mercury that needs to be sublimated and putrified.

                        The red stone signifies that the work has been completed and the highest level of refinement has been achieved.

                        There’s too little information to be sure, but probably not. Very very few people succeed, and those that do, don’t go around announcing it to the world like that.

                        That’s genuinely sad. It sounds like he, as well as the alchemists he knows, failed to pass the very first test. I don’t blame them, as I almost went down that path myself, and ironically, maybe it was just my ignorance that saved me. Being trained chemists, and having been taught that chemistry descended from alchemy, it was natural for them to assume that the two sciences share the same tools and materials. Only an uncommon amount of intellectual rigor, or divine inspiration, could have prevented them from making this very common mistake.

                        The study of alchemy is like a maze, with many dead ends and false doors. What’s worse, you can work for years, for your whole life, without ever realizing that you took the wrong turn. The first test is figuring out what the philosophers’ stone really is. Passing it doesn’t guarantee success, though… it’s just the first step.

                        then what are you doing here?

                        I want to help some fellow travellers who may be lurking on this board, but I need to be careful not to say too much.

                        I take it that guy succeeded in creating some type of stone? And despite being able to transmute elements, it’s not the Philosopher’s Stone? What would be the appropriate term for it? A failed Philosopher’s Stone? Or might it be some kinda lesser stone? Assuming those exists.

                        Assuming that the stone he made is really capable to transmute some elements, it would be what’s called a ‘particular’ in alchemical literature, which is different from the ‘universal’ or true philosophers’ stone. He’s right when he says that none of the alchemists he knows can achieve immortality, because only the true stone can grant that wish.

                        I’m guessing you mean metaphorically? In other words, in order to achieve physical immortality via the Philosopher’s Stone, it wouldn’t require one to speak to it? It’d instead involve some type of alchemical process?

                        Yes. I guess you could speak to it if you wanted, and some alchemists probably did, but it’s not necessary. There are no incantations needed.

                        Why the hell would anyone consume it in the first place? The stone could well be a satanic eucharist, using astrological energies from saturn, moon, the ether and whatnot. Theres reason why Paracelsus and other alchemists died at regular age, you’d have to be insane to consume that. Immortality of the body is vanity. It’s like the caterpillar taking something to remain a caterpillar, it’s stupid. Theres reason only black magicians wanted to consume it in the middle ages, since they knew nothing good awaited them in the afterlife and wanted to prolog the process.

                        It was about 10 years ago and I think I just downloaded some books out of curiosity. I’d always wanted to live forever, never really accepted the idea that death is inevitable, but back then I was still putting my faith in modern science, thinking that some kind of gene therapy or miracle supplement would make my dream come true. I was very skeptical of alchemy… and the fact that there’s so much misinformation about it, plus the cryptic language, made me dismiss it as occultist garbage for a long time. Eventually, through a series of lucky circumstances, I came to the conclusion that there’s some merit in it, and I’ve been studying it ever since.

                        No, unless you consider water/dry fasting to be one such method – it’s been argued that fasting has healing and rejuvenating effects. I never noticed any difference in my health when I tried it, other than weight loss, although to be fair I never did it for more than 3 days in a row.

                        I forgot to mention one thing. When you’re towards the end of your life and you think you’re gonna die soon, don’t think about death. Continue to think about living. Make plans. The idea is to build up life stamina. At some point along the line, you’ll begin to smell something foul. It’s the lymphatic oil your body accumulated over its lifetime. Then your wrinkled, saggy skin will tear open and you’ll make your way outta it as if it were a cocoon. After you’re finished, you’ll find yourself to be 20 years old again.

                      I found a philosopher’s stone. You don’t really create them per se, though some do, but they are all over the place if you know where to look.

                      If a stone is a heart then the philosophers stone would be the heart of a person like Jesus or buddha

                      And if a stone is something else then it would be something else. You’re on the right path, keep going, take it a few steps further.

        My first thought was "man, as I am spending all my time on wizardry and dancing and socializing and and and, my room gets really messy sometimes, but this is what it would look like if I had a lot of books and someone was PAYING me to be a wizard for sure. I sympathize."

        Then it was

        Then I think the sword through the book stood out to me the most, with the vase behind it. Something about that way of bookmarking or ‘coincidence’ struck me as significant.

        Then I paid attention to the ‘attentive but not comprehending’ look of the duke-dude.

            it was for emphasis in the thought. Yes, in my thought I felt, more significant than the picture was that my own experience is only different because of one thing; nobody is paying me to horde books and knowledge, because I would be a shoe-in for this photo if they were.

            Yes, my relation to this photo is one of complete sympathy and acknowledgement of a simple divide; money.

                yes? did you get the impression I don’t? If someone was willing to fund my wizardry in the form of housing me, feeding me, and taking care of my general "nonproduction" through whatever means, I would also accept that- but in the end they ARE (probably) spending money, "paying" me with their efforts required to allow me the time and space to study however I’d like (like this wizard). It’s a shorthand. Doesn’t necessarily mean money…. this comment of yours feels assumptive and a total misread of my message, but perhaps I am not understanding you. I never mentioned money, per se.

                    It’s all wizardry as far as I am concerned. and I AM doing exactly this, but without money I have less tomes and far more kindle-formatted books. I miss tomes. I also don’t have sick-ass dungeon-rooms for study. I have a cool hostel though.

                        I do, in a way. I don’t have pills, and I am not needing more money. This train of thought started because I AM living a mirror life to this guy, but if I DID have more money I would just be actually-this-dude (context supporting of course). I am perfectly content where I am.

                        Ah must be very interesting. I’ve always been curious about the magical inclinations of the original people of Mexico since they’re very VERY advanced in mathematics and architecture. Do you know anything about the black mirror? Obsidian.

                        It’s fascinating. I live adjacent to indigenous people. They’re accent reminds me of, not exaggerating or making a joke, star wars characters in a LOT of ways. These people speak from the heart- they are VERY commonly hardcore psychics. I have had an elder approach me in downpour rain to tell me he had seen my heart on a random trip I took months and months prior- they see right through people (it’s a large reason they don’t like white people- white CULTURE is VERY ingenuine and has little basis in the heart (I am white btw, 23andMe (idk it’s reliability) says I am 99.1% Northern European… very white) which screams danger to these people).

                        I can’t speak to their current architecture (nor math)…. they basically live in 2nd world huts usually. They’re content. Their ancestors however were clearly, evidently, highly accomplished. That fell apart though, and the present people are doing all they can to avoid being colonized by heavy external cultures that I don’t see evidence of this math besides their highly mathematic textile-work.

                        it’s for emphasis, it makes sense to me. If I was speaking it would just be a slight emphasis on a point to remind you or set the tone for the rest of the idea. If I type a long paragraph, that in person would be engaging because of the dynamics, over text I might completely lose you. It’s not arbitrary.

                        And because I have a name, and I don’t care to be anonymous. I like that people might, for a second, feel like they’re talking to a real person who has a name. This is the name I hear many times a day, and I consider this valid socializing in many ways so why not allow some level of personalization? I dig it.

                        Yeah, i can understand where you’re coming from with the white culture angle. Very materialistic and consuming in a way, too logical and kept in secret the reality of the world. I wish you peace, love and ascension, anon. You sound like a really cool dude and i hope you find what you’re looking for

                        Yeah, I just conversed with my ex (a brown woman who is otherwise VERY capable and someone I highly respect) about this- it’s not white PEOPLE, I don’t think we are naturally this way, it is white CULTURE. It’s all learned behaviors. white kids aren’t this way. White adult non-domesticates aren’t this way. I love white people, the culture is the shit part.

                        Thanks for your kind words. They mean more than you might know- I am not starving for sociability nor validation, but knowing that something as simple and base as little letters I personally and send out into the ether allow someone else to see a piece of me that sparks this kind of response creates that much more gratitude in my heart.

                        I didn’t explain properly- I conversed about this because she was speaking as if it were white PEOPLE. I don’t put the blame on any individual, not anymore blame than I put on ANYONE for not assessing their cultural baggage.
                        She agrees, I believe, but the neural pathways for another (similar in sound and completely different in meaning) phrase and thought are deep.
                        I only mentioned this and her because it happened today, so it’s on my mind distinctly.

                        >Srinivasa Ramanujan FRS (/ˈsrJnJvɑːs rɑːˈmɑːnʊdʒən/;[1] born Srinivasa Ramanujan Aiyangar, IPA: [sriːniʋaːsa ɾaːmaːnud͡ʑan ajːaŋgar]; 22 December 1887 – 26 April 1920)[2][3] was an Indian mathematician who lived during the British Rule in India. Though he had almost no formal training in pure mathematics, he made substantial contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions, including solutions to mathematical problems then considered unsolvable. Ramanujan initially developed his own mathematical research in isolation: according to Hans Eysenck: "He tried to interest the leading professional mathematicians in his work, but failed for the most part. What he had to show them was too novel, too unfamiliar, and additionally presented in unusual ways; they could not be bothered".[4] Seeking mathematicians who could better understand his work, in 1913 he began a postal correspondence with the English mathematician G. H. Hardy at the University of Cambridge, England. Recognizing Ramanujan’s work as extraordinary, Hardy arranged for him to travel to Cambridge. In his notes, Hardy commented that Ramanujan had produced groundbreaking new theorems, including some that "defeated me completely; I had never seen anything in the least like them before",[5] and some recently proven but highly advanced results.

                        I absolutely for a second don’t doubt this. That’s why I made sure to point out that I don’t SEE evidence of it; it could be there right in front of me (their textiles are a really leading point).

                        I might look into this more on account of this response. I could just be looking for anglo-mathematics while ignoring something else entirely. if I see anything noteworthy I will likely post- on LULZ I think very few people are actual-racists who wouldn’t be interested in this, these are an ancient people after all.

                        I don’t doubt it! I could be happy with a loincloth and the knowledge that some-tomorrow will bring calories and water. I am happy regardless of my external- or rather, I feel joy regardless of what is going on around me, really.

                        I think this was a reference to the "own nothing and be happy" meme of (communism or whatever), but I genuinely do like not being responsible and attached to many things. I also like fasting, so I never saw this as some kind of hellish rebuke personally like those around me may have!

        That’s the cross of Enlil. The founding templar families weren’t Christian. The Knights of Malta use the cross of Saint Germain, a literal demon.

              The Enochians and the fallen angels had these ideas first. Hermes reestablished these ideas in the cities that he taught in after the flood. These ideas then spread to India through the indo aryans. Hinduism is not original lol

      Lots of people hidden in the pic, white monk in doorway, two in red to his right side. Face top centre of curtains, below that large dragon face and to right of that another person, on bookshelf to the left is another face if you hold the image back. One in vase bottom right, one in bottle beside table leg, one on base next to Templar Cross, and one on tapestry to right of table but above box.

      There’s another nice little detail, now that I look closer. Above the big black book on the bottom (‘opened’ by the sword), there’s a white and a red one. Together, they symbolise the three stages of the work.

      I take it you meant you found a physical stone? If so, where’d you find yours?

      • #192882

        Guest

        No, I was taking the other point of view, not physical in this case, then again I need be careful to the degree that everything is physical. But no, not like you are asking.

        For some, there’s more to the field of Alchemy than only chemistry or material science; it also always had an essence of philosophy to it. One might distinguish a "chemical philosopher’s stone" and a "philosopher’s, philosopher stone," or any other field’s stone.

        And there is a deep correlation between the physical stone, the philosophical stone, or any other specific stones, with the body and mind, that they are the stone also, and what state they need to be in to achieve the end product.

        For example, that is, only someone, a philosopher, sitting around thinking about how chemistry and everything worked, would be able to understand and come up with a transmutation device. But also, that they over many years, or some time frame, had undergone a life and experiences such that their own body became the vessal for such information.

            In philosophy, and my body, and in many endeavors. Like I implied, they are all over, waiting for someone to find them, and they are such that each person has a chance to find their own.

            Q. What is a stonemason’s stone?
            A. A stone (transmuted into a tool or building). Granite, Salt
            Q. What is a chemist’s stone? (The original take on the subject)
            A. A Transmutation material (transmutes materials). Anti-gold, Sulfur
            Q. What is a philosopher’s stone?
            A. (Fill in the blanks, analog here, transmutes ___ ?___). ___?____, Mercury

            To reiterate, all stones are physical in the sense that all fields take place in the physical, and therefore the configuration of such is physical. And yet when people speak of the traditional stone they are referring to the chemical, material one.

            Have you been able to do anything with your Philosopher’s Stone?

            Yes and no. I’m not necessarily great at wielding it. I’m more like the kid who came across something on his own, versus someone who was shown all the parts and pieces and how to properly operate one over time. Like Mickey casting spells with a stolen Wizard’s hat in Fantasia.

            But yes, in one way I did do something specific with it, or a few things maybe, and it’s also useful for daily living in other ways, and becomes more so all the time.

                    I kept it in the back of my mind over time to keep my eye out for how to make one, or what one was, and I kept thinking about a deeper or abstract meaning behind the stone, versus the surface level take. The philosophy part. "Everyone" talks about the philosopher’s stone, but "all they talk about is chemistry," but yet it’s called the PHILOSOPHER"S stone.

                    Eventually, I came across material where others concurred and confirmed certain ideas I had about the topic, and I then applied those concepts to, and compared them against, my own life, to the point where I realized I had achieved such a task in the recent past, and had the understanding to at least use to operate it to a minimal degree.
