The Theory of Creation and Rebirth of the Multiverse, Galaxies, Solar System/s, Earth, and Life.  Healing, Renewal, and Rebirth.
   (c) January 12th  2012  - Alchemists Workshop tm.

 

      I    In the beginning there was Nothing - A Void
But the Nothing WAS Something - It was the Aether
The Aether was, and still is, an electrical magnetic force present throughout the multiverse of galaxies and solar systems (note pi), and reacted with the planet Earth from the beginning of this incarnation of the multiversal Universe and its millions of Galaxies.

II    In the beginning there was only Darkness in the Void
and the Aether was continually moving, flowing, a nothingness of electromagnetic aether energy moving cyclically and in ever decreasing vortexes, at times birthing new and more cyclical expanding and decreasing streams of  charged aether.
When these  ethereal increasing density aether vortexes of nothingness passed and rubbed shoulders there became a single spark which created light.  Light in the form of a liberating  mega-atomic explosion with the resulting super heated gasses which in the new light of a the first day resulted in the expanding Universe currently being experienced by us today on Earth some 15 - 18 million years after the above event.

The resultant spread and evolution of the many universes and their attendant galaxies which spread as a result of these expanding superheated gases which with the added help of the charged massfree electro-magnetic aether helped to create the spinning gasses and resultant solar systems with their suns, planets and moons.

III    And from the lightened darkness came forth light and fire,    swirling gases and finally suns, and their planets such as Earth.
Whereupon the gases changed on Earth with the motion of it's own planetary spin, resultant electro-magnetic gravity and it's own trapped aether reacting with the outer-space  surrounding general cosmic aether, kept up the continuing electrical low gues friction which has continued to give life to all of the planet's subsequent evolving life forms to this day.

IV    The reaction resulting over the forthcoming 4.5 to 5 million     years resulted in tidal oceans, shifting  seasonal climates, H20     fresh water rain, vegetation, animal life...and humankind
.....and still the massfree electrical magnetic aether continues to stream from across the galaxy and swirl around the earth and spin independently of the earth's own closed aether system.

   These electro magnetic streams are apparent when they run along the longitudal lines between the poles around all 360 degrees of the earth's north south axis.
This electro-magnetic activity at extremely low gues exerts reactions within all living things including plants, animals and human beings
. //<addendum>

VI    So now we have a wonderful electromagnetic Aether System running the entire Multiversal System; which is seen, touched, and smelt as..... NOTHING - A VOID - SPACE - SPATIAL VORTEXES and BLACK HOLES : All described as NOTHINGNESS.
We have already gone into the nature of this nothingness and void which can exist inside this vacuum in the previous paragraphs.  We have also explained that there IS an OTHER existing in this Nothingness and that is the massfree electromagnetic Aether.

      VII      Like all Stars/Suns   - they eventually lose power, heat up and then burnout  in a giant explosion encompassing all their planets and their attendant moons etc. They then start to fall into their centre with the gasses and particles being compressed more and more until the situation forms a Black Hole within which nothing escapes. Eventually all the black holes in our Multiverse become one and continues to compress even tighter and smaller until.....in the total blackness of NOTHINGNESS, it EXPLODES - so we again reach 0.01 seconds of the BEGINNING.

A self perpetuating system of birth, death, and rebirth.
A reincarnation of life, maybe in a different format, but time after before time. Again and again.

Addendum: Jan 14th 2012
Infinity Cosmic + Spiritual
The human body like other animals have their own onboard low gauss electrical system which runs throughout the body and is contained in the sheath around nerves. One half is positive while the other half is negative.
It is this system that regulates the immune/repair mechanism of the body. (note 1)  Over the years of aging and or severe trauma this mechanism can become damaged or less efficient in certain areas resulting in slow healing and repair as well as not providing enough stimulus to the body's own immune system.

Vi    What we are talking about here can be described in many ways and over the millennia has been described by many different societies using the following terms:- Yin and Yang : Chokras : Acupuncture points and meridians : Life Force etc.,
Basically we are all talking about the same thing - a definable force that is within everyone of us which we can harness to benefit our own inner strength, stimulate our own immune system and realign our inner electrical force field.  Some trained and extremely gifted people can do this just by mentally controlling their own body; they can even assist others with the use of directing their energy through their hands on to others that are suffering. In other cases the use of acupuncture can have the effect of unblocking the lines of electrical communication within the body or even the reverse, of blocking pain response back to the patient's brain receptors.

However, we all have the ability of clearing blocked electrical energy pathways and helping maintain our own natural electrical balance and maintain our own natural aether system. with which we stay tuned into nature, the earth and the universe.

One of the ways we can achieve this for ourselves is with the use of  ultrafine colloidals (electrical micro charged almost nano sized particles) which have a distinct and direct effect on various body systems.

These include gold which inter-reacts with the entire neural system; silver, which inter reacts with all damaged, torn or infected areas within or on the body. Colloidal Silver has been observed under a micron microscopic examination of its effects on a damaged internal area of appearing to act like a halo or sphere surrounding the damaged area and reversing the electrical polarity of the internal supply mentioned in the preceding information.

This then has the instant effect of the local cells rebirthing in the shape and type needed to effect a speedy repair. It is this repair information that has to reach the brain for it to reverse the polarity which starts the repairs in motion. If any of these pathways are weak or damaged the information is either delayed or not carried through to its needed conclusion.

Ultrafine colloidal copper has a similar effect on the entire body's arteries and veins with respect to oxygenization and cleansing of these vital pathways. Copper also increases elasticity to the artery walls and increases the production of collagen in the skin.
Besides the actual pure mineral benefits there are also the added benefits of the micro electrical charge that every one of these ultrafine colloidals carry. The charge is almost identical with the aether charge already in existence on earth and the cosmos, but a little stronger.

Besides the above colloidals being used for general everyday maintenance and specific conditions or health problems, they can also be utilized to enhance beauty and skin care topically.

LOOK YOUNGER

FEEL MORE VIGOROUS

 Giving your body that which has been denied by over-farming the soil.

 

 Alchemists Workshop © Dec 30th 2010

 

 

BE A HEALTHIER AND BETTER YOU
Put back into your body vital Silver - Gold - Copper - Zinc which has virtually disappeared from our food sources because of over-farming the soil. These four important primal and precious minerals are vital for a good and healthy life.

 

LOOK AND FEEL YOUNGER

ACT AND FEEL MORE VIGOROUS

BE HEALTHIER AND MORE ACTIVE


 

NO AGE SHOULD BE A BARRIER

The passage of time does not have be to be marked by ravaged and speedy aging; as has been shown by some of today's world leading soccer players; at 38 years of age and with proper dietary vitamins and minerals, they can still outperform sometimes younger players ten to twenty years younger than themselves.


 

Obviously as we pass the threshold of between 20-22 years our replacement of cells begin to falter and make the odd error in replacement terms.  This problem is further exacerbated when there is a lack of certain vital minerals to help with the basic building blocks. Consequently when there is a lack of copper within the body a situation can develop over time which can impact the speed at which the brain synapses respond to passing information between themselves and can thus impact on memory and or cause inadvertent muscle and/or limb movement.  Copper deficiency can also result in the body's inability to keep its arteries both pliable and clean of plaque build-up. Lack of copper can also create a loss of collagen which can result in wrinkles appearing as we grow older.


 

So to avoid or indefinitely put of, all the other signs of so-called old age like arthritis and arteriosclerosis, it is necessary to maintain our copper and gold mineral supply to our constantly replenishing cells in our body.  Unfortunately we do not get these minerals from our foods anymore due to soil depletion from overuse of intensive farming principles over the past decades. thus leeching out these small yet very important trace minerals which our forefathers enjoyed naturally.

TO STAY YOUNG AND HEALTHY

You have to protect and defend against illness and disease of all types.

 

At the first signs of infectionm whether a slight tickling cough or soreness in the back of the throat, or sneezing and sore sinuses; it is necessary to treat the infected areas with ultrafine colloidal silver using it as a gargle or mouthwash, or, using a nose dropper drop a few drops into both nasal passages both morning and evening. This will have the effect of killing off the infection right at the beginning before it becomes a full blooded attack on your bronchial tubes and sinuses. Once again bearing in mind the information contained in our paragraphs above, all infectious attacks leave more and more cells to be replaced with the odd mutation - all leading to irregular aging.

As silver kills all single celled invaders that it comes in contact with, it is the ideal colloidal to use for almost everything.
Ultrafine colloidal silver will also accelerate fast healing of any damaged cells, soft tissue, muscle, bone or cartilage.

PROMOTING REPLACEMENT OF HEALTHY CELLS
Obviously it is important to your future life that your body's cells replicate and repair accurately with little or no errors, because over time each tiny error is also replicated and repeated until the usual picture of an ancient old person becomes the picture almost everyone sees when they look into mirror aged 80 plus. That's of coarse if they haven't gone under the cosmetic surgeon's knife, buts that an entirely another matter, where the outer skin does not reflect what is going on with the body as a whole.

It is important therefore to make sure that we give our body all the necessary nutrients, vitamins and minerals to repair and replicate any cells that may get damaged, to keep our health in as good a state as we can to roll back the years.

Remember stress causes incredible problems to your health which can result in hypertension, cardiovascular disease and stroke; thus the use of
ultrafine colloidal gold will decrease this threat down to manageable levels or could even eradicate it under certain conditions, including light exercise.

PRIMAL AND PRECIOUS MINERAL WATERS


Mineral water
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
extract
Mineral water is water containing minerals or other dissolved substances that alter its taste or give it therapeutic value. Salts, sulfur compounds, and gases are among the substances that can be dissolved in the water. Mineral water can often be effervescent. Mineral water can be prepared or can be obtained from naturally occurring mineral springs. In many places, mineral water is often colloquially used to mean carbonated water, which is usually carbonated mineral water, as opposed to tap water.

The Definition of Mineral Water

    www.Ehow.com  -  definitions

  1. Mineral water is water that contains very small amounts of mineral salts and oligo elements. Oligo elements are ions of elements like calcium, magnesium, sodium, chromium, copper, iron, chlorine, manganese, selenium, fluorine and boron. Because of the electrical charge carried by the ions, the minerals can dissolve in water that passes over them as precipitation.
  2. Significance

  3. Modern agricultural methods tend to deplete the minerals that occur naturally in the soil and which would normally be ingested by the plants and eaten by people as vegetables. As early as 1936, the United States Senate Document 264 reported that most Americans, 99 percent in fact, were deficient in minerals and needed them to be supplemented in their diets. Mineral water is considered to be one way that people can obtain these supplements.
  4. Features

  5. While mineral water historically came straight from the mineral springs, today it can be produced chemically in the laboratory using mineral salts. Only an angstrom in size, the mineral salts combine with water after being treated with an electrical colloidial mineral maker. Mineral water comes in bottles that contain individual minerals or combinations of minerals that are supposed to help specific conditions. Because of the minerals, the water can taste bitter.
  6. History

  7. Mineral water caused some famous cities and resorts to be located near natural springs. One of the most famous is a healing spring in Berkeley, West Virginia, that George Washington named Bath in 1776. Earlier resorts where people went to bath in the mineral water were at Lynn Springs, Massachusetts and Stafford Springs, Connecticut. President Andrew Jackson named Hot Springs, Arkansas, the first American nature preserve created because of the mineral water there.

WELDING TOGETHER OF HOLISTIC ALCHEMY
Results and Anecdotal Evidence...SILVER
Hi,

Even though you have shown your keen interest in the results of our Holistic Alchemy through your use of our unique Ultrafine Colloidal products, I have come to the conclusion that it was time for me to go into some more depth as to the relevance the electrico-magnetic charge carried by colloidal mineral particles.
 
I'd really like you to know the whys and wherefores of the reality behind their workings; that these remarkable colloidals and the fact that they didn't just happen - that its not just a passing fad - that there is more than two millennia involved in the search for these ultimate ultrafine colloidal minerals.

In this story I have attempted to deal with the most important unseen element in the universe which is tied in to the phenomenal success which these colloidal particles achieve in channeling this universal source of healing.

So thank you for your interest and your quest for evermore wisdom in trying to extend your life's vitality and freedom from illness and disease.

You are welcome to read the remarkable insights and discoveries of Harold Apsden who unravelled the true nature of the universe and its natural physics. Also a visit to read Dr. Robert Becker's Body Electric is both insightful and and mind bending.

I sincerely hope that you will find the following information both fascinating and educational and add to your armor in your fight against skepticism.
Sincerely
Merlinski

The Alchemists Healing Stone
  Over the millennia covering ancient times up to the present, there have always been stories about the healing properties of special mystical stones.
  Alchemists Workshop have located a source of scarce naturally magnetic stones which carry their own low gauss aether electromagnetic force.  They have been immersed within a proprietary formulated colloidal mixture for predetermined periods to produce the finely tuned Alchemists Holistic Stone.

These stones are then housed within their own individual soft leather talisman pouches, handmade in Shamanic Indian style tradition. They can be hung onto a belt or worn around the neck worn close to the skin so that the interaction of the stone and the body's electrical system continues unabated. It acts almost like a low battery trickle charger.

In the event of a problem which is localized, the stone can be removed by opening the pouch and removing the stone and gently massaging it into the effected area. If the pain gradually moves from the original location; follow the probably reduced pain trail to its new location and continue the procedure until it dissipates entirely. If the pain reappears again repeat as needed.  If the pain persists over several days refer to a medical doctor.

The Alchemists Holistic Stone tm  can be used very effectively with the oral and topical use of ultrafine colloidals.

(The Alchemists Holistic Stone )

This is the Cosmic stone of the Universe, being some 4 - 15 million years old and having travelled millions of light years through time and space.

These stones and  some that have sometimes arrived as comets, are endowered with a natural electro-magnetic force-field operating on the same wave length as that of the natural force-fields operating along the longditudal lines on earth between the north and south poles, and also present within most life forms living on this planet.


About our Alchemists Healing Stone tm.
You wear or carry it with you as a talisman but which you use directly on the skin to heal any pain.  Each stone is between 4-11 million years old and will have travelled across the known universe.

The Alchemists Holistic Stone tm. comes in two different finishes - naturally rough or tumble polished. Each stone comes in their own individual handmade Shamanic Native Indian style soft natural leather pouch. Also each of these stones have their own unique natural low gauss magnetic field that aligns with the body's own electro magnetic field. The stones have also been treated within our own colloidal mixtures which also carry their own electro-magnetic healing field.  The combination of this proprietary formulated treatment makes these stones totally unique. You only have to buy one once to last a lifetime without any type of recharging.

WHAT IS HOLISTIC ALCHEMY?

 

When used to treat an illness or a condition of the human body, the word holistic is used to mean to treat the body as a whole and not just the elements that show themselves and thus provide the symptoms but not necessarily the causation.

 

The cause of these symptoms could very well be what at first would appear to be unrelated and often undiagnosed problems somewhere else within the body as a whole, or even seated within the cranial cavity - the brain.

 

It is therefore incumbent upon us all to get to, and to treat the actual cause of illness and disease and not just to relieve the symptoms.

 

The general problem is that most modern medicines are concerned with the eradication of only pain at the point of suffering, and although that is one laudable outcome, it sometimes does nothing to relieve the actual cause which can be seated in another entirely different part of the body, and which if left unattended and untreated can migrate to a much more difficult and hard to treat condition later on, in months, or even years to come.

 

So the concept of holistic treatment has always been to treat the body as a whole and not just individual parts. By this method we come to see that this regime can get to the cause of the problems manifesting themselves in different parts of the human body.

Life Spiral of Infinity
     ALCHEMY

 

There is a huge misconception about the origins and use of alchemy. Since its inception the goal was and still is, to achieve a higher plane of spiritual and physiological being.  Of achieving a purity of body and mind, and to rid both of degeneration. Hence the myth and legend of the Elixir of Life.

 

The alchemists of old did much for modern medicine and their research into the benefits of herbs and use of metals for health and purity of body, mind, and spirit, went through many different phases over the millennia and especially through the latter centuries, before being taken over by modern medicine mainly made from chemical simulations of the plant and mineral extracts discovered by the old alchemists of the 18th and 19th centuries.

 

For example even the most common of all modern medicines - the Aspirin, is only a laboratory simulated extraction and artificially produced essence of what was a commonly used substance derived directly from pure Willow Bark. In the latter half of the 18th and through the 20th centuries, the importance of the ingestion of minerals as part of our diet became acknowledged and although in most cases it was assumed that we obtained most of these through our daily diet of vegetables and general food intake, it soon became clear that our vitamins did not become fully activated without minerals.  So a diet without minerals or lacking certain primal and precious minerals would result in a totally misbalanced diet resulting in many of the modern day complaints that were missing in days gone bye.  That is not to say that poor people around the world living in poverty and without proper nourishment would thrive just on minerals, but as was witnessed in reverse - that sailors denied vitamin C would get very ill and possibly die of scurvy.  That was until the British navy discovered that if they fed their crews limes ( vitamin C ) during a long sea voyage, they would be cured of this disease or never contract it. Thus the name for the old Brit sailors and even now used to describe the Brits as Limeys.

 

So it can be seen that even a tiny little bit of the vital nourishment needed for every ones wellbeing can drastically make the difference between illness and a healthy and vital life.  This is especially true when it comes to certain minerals like silver, copper zinc and even gold.  Almost all of these metals were in our diet up to the 1850s. Albeit in tiny and microscopic quantities. It is now known that silver played a large part in providing good health even where a diet was low in calories and scarce in nourishment as it has been found that there was a strong presence of silver in the food that was then grown and eaten by these communities.  That silver helped to protect against illness and disease has now been pretty much documented and upheld except by those with an axe to grind for monetary gain.

 

It is therefore a great shame that with all the poverty and malnutrition in the world; with people near the breadline even within the first world; with people suffering the results of bad diet and chemical additives that can cause our old and even middle aged to become frail or unsound of mind and limb - should be misdirected to think that using an ultrafine colloidal silver, copper, zinc or even gold is a quirky off the wall practice. When in fact these elements could offer a real protection against what ails them and stop the onset of a lot of the modern day illnesses and diseases commonly current today.

 

All is One

THE WELDING TOGETHER OF HOLISTIC ALCHEMY

 

So it was not a far flung idea to put together both the holistic ideal with the aims and tenets of alchemy for the benefit of a longer and more meaningful life. However Alchemists Workshop which started in 1974 discovered nearly ten years after its commencement that there was a missing element to enhance the body's ability to fight illness and disease and stimulate the body's own defence mechanism which was discovered by Dr. Robert Becker, and that was electricity.

 

Dr. Becker discovered that there was a very low voltage electrical circuit circumventing the entire human body (and other living creatures). He found that when diseased, broken or traumatized areas of the body were introduced to a very low dose of electricity (see Body Electric by Dr. Robert Becker) the damaged parts began to heal and even the speed of healing was accelerated. He also observed two of the following: that silver was far, far more effective in delivering the electrical charge and that the one missing common element in cases of osteoporosis were two particles of copper.  It is the findings of Dr. Becker's experiments that were embraced together with alchemy and the holistic tradition that led to the transformation of Alchemists Workshop and their unique ultrafine precious and primal colloidal minerals.

 
All Four Colloidals

Results and Anecdotal Evidence

 

SILVER

Once these three elements were combined it became obvious that the Dr. Becker's observations about the ability of electrically charged silver particles to seek out damaged cells and hasten their repair was totally accurate.

 

Providing the silver particles were ultrafine ie small enough to enter a single cell, they would kill off all single celled invaders leaving no survivors to mutate and multiply.  Many accounts have been written about the ability of silver to hasten a fresh cut to heal within twenty four hours. Prevent burns blistering and scarring burned skin. Helping to eradicate aging spots on skin and generally protecting and defending against germs, bacteria, allergens and pathogens. Used to dislodge even the most stubborn infections with higher ppms up to 500ppm.  It is a great pity that most of the US scientific institutions like John Hopkins and Bethesda Hospital should have had to remove their clinical results and findings on  colloidal silver. But the UN's World Health Organization continues to fight the worlds most dangerous and mortal water borne diseases like typhoid using colloidal silver with the help and backing from another part of the US Government to the tune of $57 million dollars on South America and now parts of Africa.

 

We have witnessed the results of using ultrafine colloidal silver sprayed on to psoriasis of the arms and being successful, as well as curing so-called incurable ulcers on legs due to be amputated.  Taking just a few teaspoons and dropping a few drops into the nasal passages has stopped the worsening and prevention of fully fledged colds and flu infections.

 

HOW IT WORKS

The charged ultrafine colloidal particles are easily absorbed directly into the bloodstream when they are administered by pouring the liquid from a spoon under the tongue and holding the colloidal solution in that position for about  thirty seconds to allow absorption before swallowing same. (this procedure also initially diverts the colloidal solution away from the digestive tract and takes it to where it is most needed and best used.

 

To understand what it is that is at work here, we have to go back to Dr. Becker's research and understand that the entire electrical system is wired along the sheathing that surrounds all our nerves and neural network which reaches every part of our body. Under normal and healthy conditions this system eventually ends up at the nerve endings, but if there is a trauma or an adverse health condition especially resulting in pain, then this triggers the polarity at these points to immediately reverse themselves. It is this reverse polarity that attracts the individual colloidal particles to the infected or damaged cells, and instigate their incredible accelerated healing process.  It has been observed that the charged particles surround a damaged or infected area almost like a halo and stay on position until healed.

 

There is another aspect regarding ultrafine colloidal silver also at work, and that is its ability to enter human blood cells and attack all invading single celled invaders. This includes germs, bacteria, viruses, allergens and pathogens which they subsequently kill by depriving them of their ability to absorb oxygen - thus they suffocate and die leaving no mutations to carry on the infection.  This is why it is so very important that the size of the colloidal silver particles be less than a human blood cell - roughly one micron. Ultrafine Colloidal Silver is always between 0.10 and 0.01 micron in size and therefore able to marshal anything between one to a hundred particles to fight and kill single celled invaders within a single blood cell. Any other colloidal silver which is made up of particles larger than one micron is therefore virtually meaningless for the use that we have described above.

 

It can now be understood how these three different branches came together over thirty five years to create this true holistic alchemy, as practiced by Alchemists Workshop.

Part III - to be published during the beginning of October 2012 and will deal with the making and effects of Ultrafine Gold and Ruby~Red Colloidal GOLD on the body, and within the heart and brain, together with its ability to help control the beating heart and calm the entire neural system.

For those of you that wish to learn more about Alchemytion
the following article was not produced by Alchemists Workshop but was sent by an anonymous contributor who obtained it from an article on the internet in March 2012

Alchemy and Its Exponents 
Is the transmutation of base metals into gold possible?  
Is the idea one at which the learned of the modern world can afford to scoff?  

 

Alchemy was more than a speculative art: it was also an operative art. Since the time of the immortal Hermes, alchemists have asserted (and not without substantiating evidence) that they could manufacture gold from tin, silver, lead, and mercury. That the galaxy of brilliant philosophic and scientific minds who, over a period of two thousand years, affirmed the actuality of metallic transmutation and multiplication, could be completely sane and rational on all other problems of philosophy and science, yet hopelessly mistaken on this one point, is untenable. Nor is it reasonable that the hundreds declaring to have seen and performed transmutations of metals could all have been dupes, imbeciles, or liars. 

 

Those assuming that all alchemists were of unsound mentality would be forced to put in this category nearly all the philosophers and scientists of the ancient and mediæval worlds. Emperors, princes, priests, and common townsfolk have witnessed the apparent miracle of metallic metamorphosis. In the face of existing testimony, anyone is privileged to remain unconvinced, but the scoffer elects to ignore evidence worthy of respectful consideration. Many great alchemists and Hermetic philosophers occupy an honored niche in the Hall of Fame, while their multitudinous critics remain obscure. To list all these sincere seekers after Nature's great arcanum is impossible, but a few will suffice to acquaint the reader with the superior types of intellect who interested themselves in this abstruse subject. 

 

Among the more prominent names are those of Thomas Norton, Isaac of Holland, Basil Valentine (the supposed discoverer of antimony), Jean de Meung, Roger Bacon, Albertus Magnus, Quercetanus Gerber (the Arabian who brought the knowledge of alchemy to Europe through his writings), Paracelsus, Nicholas Flarnmel, John Frederick Helvetius, Raymond Lully, Alexander Sethon, Michael Sendivogius, Count Bernard of Treviso, Sir George Ripley, Picus de Mirandola, John Dee, Henry Khunrath, Michael Maier, Thomas Vaughan, J. B. von Helmont, John Heydon, Lascaris, Thomas Charnock, Synesius (Bishop of Ptolemais), Morieu, the Comte di Cagliostro, and the Comte de St.-Germain.

 

There are legends to the effect that King Solomon and Pythagoras were alchemists and that the former manufactured by alchemical means the gold used in his temple. 

 

Albert Pike takes sides with the alchemical philosophers by declaring that the gold of the Hermetists was a reality. He says: "The Hermetic science, like all the real sciences, is mathematically demonstrable. Its results, even material, are as rigorous as that of a correct equation. The Hermetic Gold is not only a true dogma, a light without Shadow, a Truth without alloy of falsehood; it is also a material gold, real, pure, the most precious that can be found in the mines of the earth." So much for the Masonic angle. 

 

William and Mary jointly ascended the throne of England in 1689, at which time alchemists must have abounded in the kingdom, for during the first year of their reign they repealed an Act made by King Henry IV in which that sovereign declared the multiplying of metals to be a crime against the crown.

In Dr. Sigismund Bacstrom's Collection of Alchemical Manuscripts is a handwritten copy of the Act passed by William and Mary, copied from Chapter 30 of Statutes at Large for the first year of their reign. The Act reads as follows:
 

 

 "An Act to repeal the Statute made in the 5th year of King Henry IV, late king of England, [wherein] it was enacted, among other things, in these words, or to this effect, namely: 'that none from henceforth should use to multiply Gold or Silver or use the craft of multiplication, and if any the same do they shall incur the pain of felony.' And whereas, since the making of the said statute, divers persons have by their study, industry and learning, arrived to great skill & perfection in the art of melting and refining of metals, and otherwise improving and multiplying them and their ores, which very much abound in this realm, and extracting gold and silver our of the same, but dare not to exercise their said skill within this realm, for fear of falling under the penalty of the said statute, but exercise the said art in foreign parts, to the great loss and detriment of this realm:

Be it therefore enacted by the King's and Queen's most excellent Majesties, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords spiritual and temporal and Commons in this present parliament assembled, that from henceforth the aforesaid branch, article, or sentence, contained in the said act, and every word, matter and thing contained in the said branch or sentence, shall be repealed, annulled, revoked, and for ever made void, any thing in the said act to the contrary in any wise whatsoever notwithstanding. Provided always, and be it enacted by the authority aforesaid, that all the gold and silver that shall be extracted by the aforesaid art of melting or refining of metals, and otherwise improving and multiplying of them and their ores, as before set forth, be from henceforth employed for no other use or uses whatsoever but for the increase of monies; and that the place hereby appointed for the disposal thereof shall be their Majesties mint, within the Tower of London, at which place they are to receive the full and true value of their gold and silver, so procured, from time to time, according to the assay and fineness thereof, and so for any greater or less weight, and that none of that metal of gold and silver so refined and procured be permitted to be used or disposed of in any other place or places within their Majesties dominions."

 After this repealing measure had become effective, William and Mary encouraged the further study of alchemy. 

 

Dr. Franz Hartmann has collected reliable evidence concerning four different: alchemists who transmuted base metals into gold not once but many times. One of these accounts concerns a monk of the Order of St. Augustine named Wenzel Seiler, who discovered a small amount of mysterious red powder in his convent. In the presence of Emperor Leopold I, King of Germany, Hungary, and Bohemia, he transmuted quantities of tin into gold. Among other things which he dipped into his mysterious essence was a large silver medal. That part of the medal which came in contact with the gold-producing substance was transmuted into the purest quality of the more precious metal. The rest remained silver. With regard to this medal, Dr. Hartmann writes:

"The most indisputable proof (if appearances can prove anything) of the possibility of transmuting base metals into gold, may be seen by everyone who visits Vienna; it being a medal preserved in the Imperial treasury chamber, and it is stated that this medal, consisting originally of silver, has been partly transformed into gold, by alchemical means, by the same Wenzel Seiler who was afterwards made a knight by the Emperor Leopold I. and given the title Wenzeslaus Ritter von Reinburg. "(In the Pronaos of the Temple of Wisdom.)

Space limitations preclude a lengthy discussion of the alchemists. A brief sketch of the lives of four should serve to show the general principles on which they worked, the method by which they obtained their knowledge, and the use which they made of it. The following four were Grand Masters of this secret science; and the stories of the folowing:-

PARACELCUS
PARACELSUS.
From The Complete Writings of Paracelsus, of Hohenheim.
In his Biographia Antiqua, Francis Barrett appends to the name of Paracelsus the following titles of distinction: "The Prince of Physicians and Philosophers by Fire; Grand Paradoxical Physician; The Trismegistus of Switzerland; First Reformer of Chymical Philosophy; Adept in Alchymy, Cabala, and Magic; Nature's Faithful Secretary; Master of the Elixir of Life and The Philosopher's Stone," and the "Great Monarch of Chymical Secrets"
p. 150
their wanderings and strivings, as recorded by their own pens and by contemporaneous disciples of the Hermetic art, are as fascinating as any romance of fiction.
PARACELSUS OF HOHENHEIM
The most famous of alchemical and Hermetic philosophers was Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim. This man, who called himself Paracelsus, declared that some day all the doctors of Europe would turn from the other schools and, following him, revere him above every other physician. The accepted date of the birth of Paracelsus is December 17, 1493. He was an only child. Both his father and mother were interested in medicine and chemistry. His father was a physician and his mother the superintendent of a hospital. While still a youth, Paracelsus became greatly interested in the writings of Isaac of Holland, and determined to reform the medical science of his day.
When twenty years old he began a series of travels which continued for about twelve years. He visited many European countries, including Russia. It is possible that he penetrated into Asia. It was in Constantinople that the great secret of the Hermetic arts was bestowed upon him by Arabian adepts. His knowledge of the Nature spirits and the inhabitants of the invisible worlds he probably secured from the Brahmins of India with whom he came in contact either directly or through their disciples. He became an army physician, and his understanding and skill brought him great success.
Upon his return to Germany, he began his long-dreamed-of reformation of the medical arts and sciences. He was opposed on every hand and criticized unmercifully. His violent temper and tremendously strong personality undoubtedly precipitated many storms upon his head which might have been avoided had he been of a less caustic disposition. He flayed the apothecaries, asserting that they did not use the proper ingredients in their prescriptions and did not consider the needs of their patients, desiring only to collect exorbitant fees for their concoctions.
The remarkable cures which Paracelsus effected only made his enemies hate him more bitterly, for they could not duplicate the apparent miracles which he wrought. He not only treated the more common diseases of his day but is said to have actually cured leprosy, cholera, and cancer. His friends claimed for him that he all but raised the dead. His systems of healing were so heterodox, however, that slowly but surely his enemies overwhelmed him and again and again forced him to leave the fields of his labors and seek refuge where he was not known.
There is much controversy concerning the personality of Paracelsus. That he had an irascible disposition there is no doubt. His barred for physicians and for women amounted to a mania; for them he had nothing but abuse. As far as can be learned, there was never a love affair in his life. His peculiar appearance and immoderate system of living were always held against him by his adversaries. It is believed that his physical abnormalities may have been responsible for much of the bitterness against society which he carried with him throughout all his intolerant and tempestuous life.
His reputed intemperance brought upon him still more persecution, for it was asserted that even during the time of his professorship in the University of Basel he was seldom sober. Such an accusation is difficult to understand in view of the marvelous mental clarity for which he was noted at all times. The vast amount of writing which he accomplished (the Strassburg Edition of his collected works is in three large volumes, each containing several hundred pages) is a monumental contradiction of the tales regarding his excessive use of alcoholics.
No doubt many of the vices of which he is accused were sheer inventions by his enemies, who, not satisfied with hiring assassins to murder him, sought to besmirch his memory after they had revengefully ended his life. The manner in which Paracelsus met his death is uncertain, but: the most credible account is that he died as the indirect result of a scuffle with a number of assassins who had been hired by some of his professional enemies to make away with the one who had exposed their chicanery.
Few manuscripts are extant in the handwriting of Paracelsus, for he dictated the majority of his works to his disciples, who wrote them down. Professor John Maxson Stillman, of Stanford University, pays the following tribute to his memory: "Whatever be the final judgment as to the relative importance of Paracelsus in the upbuilding of medical science and practice, it must be recognized that he entered upon his career at Basel with the zeal and the self-assurance of one who believed himself inspired with a great truth, and destined to effect a great advance in the science and practice of medicine. By nature he was a keen and open-minded observer of whatever came under his observation, though probably also not a very critical analyst of the observed phenomena. He was evidently an unusually self-reliant and independent thinker, though the degree of originality in his thought may be a matter of legitimate differences of opinion. Certainly once having, from whatever combination of influences, made up his mind to reject the sacredness of the authority of Aristotle, Galen and Avicenna, and having found what to his mind was a satisfactory substitute for the ancient dogmas in his own modification of the neo-Platonic philosophy, he did not hesitate to burn his ships behind him.
"Having cut loose from the dominant Galenism of his time, he determined to preach and teach that the basis of the medical science of the future should be the study of nature, observation of the patient, experiment and experience, and not the infallible dogmas of authors long dead. Doubtless in the pride and self-confidence of his youthful enthusiasm he did not rightly estimate the tremendous force of conservatism against which he directed his assaults. If so, his experience in Basel surely undeceived him. From that time on he was to be a wanderer again, sometimes in great poverty, sometimes in moderate comfort, but manifestly disillusioned as to the immediate success of his campaign though never in doubt as to its ultimate success--for to his mind his new theories and practice of medicine were at one with the forces of nature, which were the expression of God's will, and eventually they must prevail."
This strange man, his nature a mass of contradictions, his stupendous genius shining like a star through the philosophic and scientific darkness of mediæval Europe, struggling against the jealousy of his colleagues as well as against the irascibility of his own nature, fought for the good of the many against the domination of the few. He was the first man to write scientific books in the language of the common people so that all could read them.
Even in death Paracelsus found no rest. Again and again his bones were dug up and reinterred in another place. The slab of marble over his grave bears the following inscription: "Here lies buried Philip Theophrastus the famous Doctor of Medicine who cured Wounds, Leprosy, Gout, Dropsy and other incurable Maladies of the Body, with wonderful Knowledge and gave his Goods to be divided and distributed to the Poor. In the Year 1541 on the 24th day of September he exchanged Life for Death. To the Living Peace, to the Sepulchred Eternal Rest."
A. M. Stoddart, in her Life of Paracelsus, gives a remarkable testimonial of the love which the masses had for the great physician. Referring to his tomb, she writes: "To this day the poor pray there. Hohenheim's memory has 'blossomed in the dust' to sainthood, for the poor have canonized him. When cholera threatened Salzburg in 1830, the people made a pilgrimage to his monument and prayed him to avert it from their homes. The dreaded scourge passed away from them and raged in Germany and the rest of Austria."


ALBERTUS MAGNUS

ALBERTUS MAGNUS.
From Jovius' Vitae Illustrium Virorum.
Albert de Groot was born about 1206 and died at the age of 74. It has been said of him that he was "magnus in magia, major in philosophia, maximus in theologia." He was a member of the Dominican order and the mentor of St. Thomas Aquinas in alchemy and philosophy. Among other positions of dignity occupied by Albertus Magnus was that of Bishop of Regensburg. He was beatified in 1622.

Albertus was an Aristotelian philosopher, an astrologer, and a profound student of medicine and physics. During his youth, he was considered of deficient mentality, but his since service and devotion were rewarded by a vision in which the Virgin Mary appeared to him and bestowed upon him great philosophical and intellectual powers. Having become master of the magical sciences, Albertus began the construction of a curious automaton, which he invested with the powers of speech and thought. The Android, as it was called, was composed of metals and unknown substances chosen according to the stars and endued with spiritual qualities by magical formulæ and invocations, and the labor upon it consumed over thirty years. St. Thomas Aquinas, thinking the device to be a diabolical mechanism, destroyed it, thus frustrating the labor of a lifetime. In spite of this act, Albertus Magnus left to St. Thomas Aquinas his alchemical formulæ, including (according to legend) the secret of the Philosopher's Stone.
On one occasion Albertus Magnus invited William II, Count of Holland and King of the Romans, to a garden party in midwinter. The ground was covered with snow, but Albertus, had prepare a sumptuous banquet in the open grounds of his monastery at Cologne. The guests were amazed at the imprudence of the philosopher, but as they sat down to eat Albertus, uttered a few words, the snow disappeared, the garden was filled with flowers and singing birds, and the air was warm with the breezes of summer. As soon as the feast was over, the snow returned, much to the amazement of the assembled nobles. (For details, see The Lives of Alchemystical Philosophers.)
p. 151
[paragraph continues] It was supposed that one early teacher of Paracelsus was a mysterious alchemist who called himself Solomon Trismosin. Concerning this person nothing is known save that after some years of wandering he secured the formula of transmutation and claimed to have made vast amounts of gold. A beautifully illuminated manuscript of this author, dated 1582 and called Splendor Solis, is in the British Museum. Trismosin claimed to have lived to the age of 150 as the result of his knowledge of alchemy. One very significant statement appears in his Alchemical Wanderings, which work is supposed to narrate his search for the Philosopher's Scone: "Study what thou art, whereof thou art a part, what thou knowest of this art, this is really what thou art. All that is without thee also is within, thus wrote Trismosin."


RAYMOND LULLY
RAYMOND LULLY
This most famous of all the Spanish alchemists was born about the year 1235. His father was seneschal to James the First of Aragon, and young Raymond was brought up in the court surrounded by the temptations and profligacy abounding in such places. He was later appointed to the position which his father had occupied. A wealthy marriage ensured Raymond's financial position, and he lived the life of a grandee.

One of the most beautiful women at: the court of Aragon was Donna Ambrosia Eleanora Di Castello, whose virtue and beauty had brought her great renown. She was at that time married and was not particularly pleased to discover that young Lully was rapidly developing a passion for her. Wherever she went Raymond followed, and at last over a trivial incident he wrote some very amorous verses to her, which produced an effect quite different from what he had expected. He received a message inviting him to visit the lady. He responded with alacrity. She told him that it was only fair that he should behold more of the beauty concerning which he wrote such appealing poems and, drawing aside part of her garments, disclosed that one side of her body was nearly eaten away by a cancer. Raymond never recovered from the shock. It turned the entire course of his life. He renounced the frivolities of the court and became a recluse.

Sometime afterwards while doing penance for his worldly sins a vision appeared to him in which Christ told him to follow in the direction in which He should lead. Later the vision was repeated. Hesitating no longer, Raymond divided his property among his family and retired to a hut on the side of a hill, where he devoted himself to the study of Arabic, that he might go forth and convert the infidels. After six years in this retreat he set out with a Mohammedan servant, who, when he learned that Raymond was about to attack the faith of his people, buried his knife in his master's back. Raymond refused to allow his would-be assassin to be executed, but later the man strangled himself in prison.
When Raymond regained his health he became a teacher of the Arabic language to those who intended traveling in the Holy Land. It was while so engaged that he came in contact: with
Arnold of Villa Nova
, who taught him the
principles or alchemy.
As a result of this training, Raymond learned the secret of the transmutation and multiplication of metals. His life of wandering continued, and during the course of it he arrived at Tunis, where he began to debate with the Mohammedan teachers, and nearly lost his life as the result of his fanatical attacks upon their religion. He was ordered to leave the country and never to return again upon pain of death. Notwithstanding their threats he made a second visit to Tunis, but the inhabitants instead of killing him merely deported him to Italy.

An unsigned article appearing in Household Words, No. 273, a magazine conducted
by Charles Dickens,
throws considerable light on Lully's alchemical ability. "Whilst at Vienna he [Lully] received flattering letters from Edward the Second, King of England, and from Robert Bruce, King of Scotland, entreating him to visit them. He had also, in the course of his travels, met with
John Cremer, Abbot of Westminster
, with whom he formed a strong friendship; and it was more to please him than the king, that Raymond consented to go to England. [A tract by John Cremer appears in the Hermetic Museum, but there is no record in the annals of Westminster of anyone by that name.] Cremer had an intense desire to learn the last great secret of alchemy--to make the powder of transmutation--and Raymond, with all his friendship, had never disclosed it. Cremer, however, set to work very cunningly; he was not long in discovering the object that was nearest to Raymond's heart--the conversion of the infidels. He told the king wonderful stories of the gold Lully had the art to make; and he worked upon Raymond by the hope that King Edward would be easily induced to raise a crusade against the Mahommedans, if he had the means.

"Raymond had appealed so often to popes and kings that he had lost all faith in them; nevertheless, as a last hope, he accompanied his friend Cremer to England. Cremer lodged him in his abbey, treating him with distinction; and there Lully at last instructed him in the powder, the secret of which Cremer had so long desired to know. When the powder was perfected, Cremer presented him to the king, who received him as a man may be supposed to receive one who could give him boundless riches. Raymond made only one condition; that the gold he made should not be expended upon the luxuries of the court or upon a war with any Christian king; and that Edward himself should go in person with an army against the infidels. Edward promised everything and anything.
"Raymond had apartments assigned him in the Tower, and there he tells us he transmuted fifty thousand pounds weight of quicksilver, lead, and tin into pure gold, which was coined at the mint into six million of nobles, each worth about three pounds sterling at the present day. Some of the pieces said to have been coined out of this gold are still to be found in antiquarian collections. [While desperate attempts have been made to disprove these statements, the evidence is still about equally divided.] To Robert Bruce he sent a little work entitled Of the Art of Transmuting Metals. Dr. Edmund Dickenson relates that when the cloister which Raymond occupied at Westminster was removed, the workmen found some of the powder, with which they enriched themselves.

"During Lully's residence in England, he became the friend of Roger Bacon. Nothing, of course, could be further from King Edward's thoughts than to go on a crusade. Raymond's apartments in the Tower were only an honorable prison; and he soon perceived how matters were. He declared that Edward would meet with nothing but misfortune and misery for his breach of faith. He made his escape from England in 1315, and set off once more to preach to the infidels. He was now a very old man, and none of his friends could ever hope to see his face again.
"He went first to Egypt, then to Jerusalem, and thence to Tunis a third time. There he at last met with the martyrdom he had so often braved. The people fell upon him and stoned him. Some Genoese merchants carried away his body, in which they discerned some feeble signs of life. They carried him on board their vessel; but, though he lingered awhile, he died as they came in sight of Majorca, on the 28th of June, 1315, at the age of eighty-one. He was buried with great honour in his family chapel at St. Ulma, the viceroy and all the principal nobility attending."
NICHOLAS FLAMMEL

NICHOLAS FLAMMEL

In the latter part of the fourteenth century there lived in Paris one whose business was that of illuminating manuscripts and preparing deeds and documents. To Nicholas Flammel the world is indebted for its knowledge of a most remarkable volume, which he bought for a paltry sum from some bookdealer with whom his profession of scrivener brought him in contact. The story of this curious document, called the Book of Abraham the Jew, is best narrated
TITLE PAGE OF ALCHEMICAL TRACT ATTRIBUTED TO JOHN CREMER.
From Musæum Hermeticum Reformatum et Amplificatum.
John Cremer, the mythical Abbot of Westminster, is an interesting personality in the alchemical imbroglio of the fourteenth century. As it is not reasonably certain that m abbot by such a name ever occupied the See of Westminster, the question naturally arises, "Who was the person concealing his identity under the Pseudonym of John Cremer?" Fictitious characters such as John Cremer illustrate two important practices of mediæval alchemists: (1) many persons of high political or religious rank were secretly engaged in Hermetic chemical research but, fearing persecution and ridicule, published their findings under various pseudonyms; (2) for thousands of years it was the practice of those initiates who possessed the true key to the great Hermetic arcanum to perpetuate their wisdom by creating imaginary persons, involving them in episodes of contemporaneous history and thus establishing these beings as prominent members of society--in some cases even fabricating complete genealogies to attain that end. The names by which these fictitious characters were known revealed nothing to the uniformed. To the initiated, however, they signified that the personality to which they were assigned had no existence other than a symbolic one. These initiated chroniclers carefully concealed their arcanum in the lives, thoughts, words. and acts ascribed to these imaginary persons and thus safely transmitted through the ages the deepest secrets of occultism as writings which to the unconversant were nothing more than biographies.
p. 152
in his own words as preserved in his Hieroglyphical Figures: "Whilst therefore, I Nicholas Flammel, Notary, after the decease of my parents, got my living at our art of writing, by making inventories, dressing accounts, and summing up the expenses of tutors and pupils, there fell into my hands for the sum of two florins, a guilded book, very old and large. It was not of paper, nor of parchment, as other books be, but was only made of delicate rinds (as it seemed to me) of tender young trees. The cover of it was of brass, well bound, all engraven with letters, or strange figures; and for my part I think they might well be Greek characters, or some such like ancient language. Sure I am. I could not read them, and I know well they were not notes nor letters of the Latin nor of the Gaul, for of them we understand a little.
"As for that which was within it, the leaves of bark or rind, were engraven and with admirable diligence written, with a point of iron, in fair and neat Latin letters colored. It contained thrice seven leaves, for so were they counted in the top of the leaves, and always every seventh leaf there was painted a virgin and serpent swallowing her up. In the second seventh, a cross where a serpent was crucified; and the last seventh, there were painted deserts, or wildernesse, in the midst whereof ran many fair fountains, from whence there issued out a number of serpents, which ran up and down here and there. Upon the first of the leaves, was written in great capital letters of gold, Abraham the Jew, Prince, Priest, Levite, Astrologer, and Philosopher, to the Nation of the Jews, by the Wrath of God dispersed among the Gauls, sendeth Health. After this it was filled with great execrations and curses (with this word Maranatha, which was often repeated there) against every person that should cast his eyes upon it, if he were not Sacrificer or Scribe.
"He that sold me this book knew not what it was worth nor more than I when I bought it; I believe it had been stolen or taken from the miserable Jews, or found in some part of the ancient place of their abode. Within the book, in the second leaf, he comforted his nation, counselling them to fly vices, and above all idolatry, attending with sweet patience the coming of the Messias, Who should vanquish all the kings of the earth and should reign with His people in glory eternally. Without doubt this had been some very wise and understanding man.
"In the third leaf, and in all the other writings that followed, to help his captive nation to pay their tributes unto the Roman emperors, and to do other things, which I will not speak of, he taught them in common words the transmutation of metals; he painted the vessels by the sides, and he advertised them of the colors, and of all the rest, saving of the first agent, of the which he spake not a word, but only (as he said) in the fourth and fifth leaves entire he painted it, and figured it with very great cunning and workman ship: for although it was well and intelligibly figured and painted, yet no man could ever have been able to understand it, without being well skilled in their Cabala, which goeth by tradition, and without having well studied their books.
"The fourth and fifth leaves therefore, were without any writing, all full of fair figures enlightened, or as it were enlightened, for the work was very exquisite. First he painted a young man with wings at his ancles, having in his hand a Caducean rod, writhen about with two serpents, wherewith he struck upon a helmet which covered his head. He seemed to my small judgment, to be the God Mercury of the pagans: against him there came running and flying with open wings, a great old man, who upon his head had an hour glass fastened, and in his hand a book (or syrhe) like death, with the which, in terrible and furious manner, he would have cut off the feet of Mercury. On the other side of the fourth leaf, he painted a fair flower on the top of a very high mountain which was sore shaken with the North wind; it had the foot blue, the flowers white and red, the leaves shining like fine gold: and round about it the dragons and griffons of the North made their nests and abode.
"On the fifth leaf there was a fair rose tree flowered in the midst of a sweet garden, climbing up against a hollow oak; at the foot whereof boiled a fountain of most white water, which ran headlong down into the depths, notwithstanding it first passed among the hands of infinite people, who digged in the earth seeking for it; but because they were blind, none of them knew it, except here and there one who considered the weight. On the last side of the fifth leaf there was a king with a great fauchion, who made to be killed in his presence by some soldiers a great multitude of little infants, whose mothers wept at the feet of the unpitiful soldiers: the blood of which infants was afterwards by other soldiers gathered up, and put in a great vessel, wherein the sun and the moon came to bathe themselves.
"And because that this history did represent the more part of that of the innocents slain by Herod, and that in this book I learned the greatest part of the art, this was one of the causes why I placed in their church-yard these Hieroglyphic Symbols of this secret science. And thus you see that which was in the first five leaves.
"I will not represent unto you that which was written in good and intelligible Latin in all the other written leaves, for God would punish me, because I should commit a greater wickedness, than he who (as it is said) wished that all the men of the World had but one head that he might cut it off with one blow. Having with me therefore this fair book, I did nothing else day nor night, but study upon it, understanding very well all the operations that it showed, but not knowing with what matter I should begin, which made me very heavy and solitary, and caused me to fetch many a sigh. My wife Perrenella, whom I loved as myself, and had lately married was much astonished at this, comforting me, and earnestly demanding, if she could by any means deliver me from this trouble. I could not possibly hold my tongue, but told her all, and showed this fair book, whereof at the same instant that she saw it, she became as much enamoured as myself, taking extreme pleasure to behold the fair cover, gravings, images, and portraits, whereof notwithstanding she understood as little as I: yet it was a great comfort to me to talk with her, and to entertain myself, what we should do to have the interpretation of them."
Nicholas Flammel spent many years studying the mysterious book. He even painted the pictures from it all over the walls of his house and made numerous copies which he showed to the learned men with whom he came in contact, but none could explain their secret significance. At last he determined to go forth in quest of an adept, or wise man, and after many wanderings he met a physician--by name Master Canches--who was immediately interested in the diagrams and asked to see the original book. They started forth together for Paris, and or, the way the physician adept explained many of the principles of the hieroglyphics to Flammel, but before they reached their journey's end Master Canches was taken ill and died. Flammel buried him at Orleans, but having meditated deeply on the information he had secured during their brief acquaintance, he was able, with the assistance of his wife, to work out the formula for transmuting base metals into gold. He performed the experiment several times with perfect success, and before his death caused a number of hieroglyphic figures to be painted upon an arch of St. Innocent's churchyard in Paris, wherein he concealed the entire formula as it had been revealed to him from the Book of Abraham the Jew.
Count Bernard of Treviso
COUNT BERNARD OF TREVISO
Of all those who sought for the Elixir of Life and the Philosopher's Stone, few passed through the chain of disappointments that beset Count Bernard of Treviso, who was born in Padua in 1406 and died in 1490. His search for the Philosopher's Stone and the secret of the transmutation of metals began when he was but fourteen years of age.

He spent not only a lifetime but also a fortune in his quest. Count Bernard went from one alchemist and philosopher to another, each of whom unfolded some pet theorem which he eagerly accepted and experimented with but always without the desired result. His family believed him to be mad and declared that he was disgracing his house by his experiments, which were rapidly reducing him to a state of penury. He traveled in many countries, hoping that in distant places he would find wise men capable of assisting him. At last as he was approaching his seventy-sixth year, he was rewarded with success. The great secrets of the Elixir of Life, the Philosopher's Stone, and the transmutation of metals were revealed to him. He wrote a little book describing the results of his labors, and while he lived only a few years to enjoy the fruitage of his discovery he was thoroughly satisfied that the treasure he had found was worth the lifetime spent in search of it.

An example of the industry and perseverance displayed by him is to be found in one of the processes which some foolish pretender coaxed him to attempt and which resulted in his spending twenty years calcining egg shells and nearly an equal period distilling alcohol and other substances. In the history of alchemical research there never was a more patient and persevering disciple of the Great Arcanum.
Bernard declared the process of dissolution, accomplished not with fire but with mercury, to be the supreme secret of alchemy,

THE SYMBOLS OF ABRAHAM THE JEW.
From Flammel's Hieroglyphical Figures.

Robert H. Fryar, in a footnote to his reprint of the Hieroglyphical Figures by Nicholas Flammel, says: "One thing which seems to prove the reality of this story beyond dispute, is, that this very book of Abraham the Jew, with the annotations of 'Flammel,' who wrote from the instructions he received from this physician, was actually in the hands of Cardinal Richelieu, as Borel was told by the Count de Cabrines, who saw and examined it."
