ALCHEMY

Since the dawn of pre-history, the human being longs to dominate himself in front of the stormy and smashing forces of mother nature.Our primitive ancestors, stripped of all but courage, determination and curiosity, crossed the limits of the horizon, spreading the adventurous and analitical spirit, constructing towns and cities, ethical codes, hierarchies and beliefs, always inspired on nature itself. In this pantheist segment,sofisticated social organizations were formed, to whichwe should feel ashamed of the universal disorder we live in today. In that "still forming" world, of constant reclicles, formations and deformations of life, the human being was intimate with God, that is, with Mother Nature, whose sense and purity were imaculate. With effect, they evoluted faster, according to the proportions, varying from locations and the leader of the tribe. The tribes of the orientwere the first to formulate political and scientifical treaties, still on rocks, following the example of the mesopotanian, hititans and of Ur. The phylosofical thought about the elements originated in Elam ( Iran), where the Imans ( priests) were the intelectual leaders of the tribe.They developed the first chemical compositions, giving a start to the manipulation of life. Men started then to explore "the Domains of God". This phylofical spread through the old world. In Egypt it had its peak of evolution, not only in physical constitution, but also in physical contitution constitution, also of the human spirit and the fragmentation of particles (where the first researches on the subject, which revolutionized the modern era, only had start in the beggining of the twentieth century). Afterall, supposely, they were blessed with wisdom and with the extra terrestrial knowlege. They developed maps of the universe with extreme preciseness, developed astrophysics, chemistry- specially cosmetology- biology, medicine, and the human cosmogony.

In arabic Al-kimia, is, as the name indicates, the chemistry of Nature. The primitive use of the modern term Alchemy is found in the works of Julius Firmicus Maternus, who lived in the times of Constantine, the Great. The imperial Library of Paris possesses the oldest treaty of alchemy existent in Europe. It was written in greek by Zozimo, the panopolitano , around 400 dC. The treaty that follows this one in order of time is from Eneas Gazeus,480 dC. Alchemy is about the more sutil forces of Nature and the different conditions in which they operate. Alchemy penetrated Europe through the Geber, the great Arabic wise man and phylosofer in the eigth century of our era. However, it was known and practiced for many centuries in China and Egypt. Inumerous papyres about alchemy and other proofs which show that this was the favorite study of kings and priests, were examined and conservated under the generic term of hermetic treaties Alchemy is studied under three different aspects, subject to distinct interpretations, which are; the Cosmic, the Human and the terrestrial.These three methods are represented by the three alchemist properties; mercury, sulfur and salt.

There is, in alchemy, a simbolical meaning, that is purely psichic and spiritual.While the cabalistic alchemist looks for the realization of the transmutation of vis metals into noble, the occult alchemist, ignoring the gold from the mines, turn all his attention and concentrates all his efforts exclusevly to the transmutationof the inferior fouth of the divine triothat is superior in men, that, when finaly bond, become only one. The spiritual, mental, pstchic and physical planes of human existence are compared, in alchemy, to the four elements of Nature; fire, water, earth and air, and each one of them is sucseptible of a triple constitution: stabl;e, variable and volatile.

The true secret of transmutation (in the physical plane) was known in the old days and got lost before the dawn of the so-called historical period. The modern chemistry owes Alchemy its best fundamental discoveries.

Alchemy has many segments and simbologies. In the Middle Ages the ecleastic pragmatism with the logical reason of the chemical expperiments, were absorbed with -fantastic- obsecion which entered the imagination of the noble to the plebean, with imaginary treasures, with the richness of the laboratory production of gold, through the mith of the filosofical stone. With effect, they lived in a paradigma between the pagan and the sacred. The witchcraft of the renegades, the spells and sortilges of the old whicth doctors and the witches of the court were the only hopes of the desperate and the sick. The sacred was, generally, the castration of thought and opinion, of the domination of ethics, of the moral and the family.

In the Renaissance, there was a huge interest in magick and hermetism. The idea of a Renaissance bathed in science, on contraire to the supersticious Middle Ages, stimulated the phylosofers, artists and wise thinkers of the time. Works- still unseen today- like from Leonardo da Vinci, took out Aristoteles from supreme authority. For the pantheist optics of magick they read the "Book of Nature".

That is, for the world to be reborn, it was necessary that men got back the analitical process of the wise men of the old days. When, in 1460, na agent of Cosimo de Medici brought with him a greek manuscript from Macedonia with fourteen of fifteen treaties which made up the Corpus Hermeticum, great sensation began. The text was attributed to a great mithological author, Hermes Trismegisto, or Hermes "three times great", sinthesis of the Egyptian god Toth, inventor of calculation and writting, and of the greek god Hermes, messager and keeper of the secrets of the gods. It was the writting originated from Alexandria, Egypt, the great center of helenistic culture. With a misterious character, the manuscripts combined grrek helenistic filosofy (Pitagora, Platon, Aristoteles, Plotino and others) with cabala( the logical jewish mistisism). Its body contained Mathematics and alchemy, Astronomy and Astrology, magick and many forms of occultism. The main idea was that of na mistic afinity between the world and the man, making it possible to find divine elements within yourself. These writers had great influence on the Renaissance , dealing with artsm sciences and phylosofy. The principal heir was the swiss Paracelso, identified by the latin codename Theophastus Philippus Aureolus Bombastus Paraceusus.

Theophastus von Hohenheim,as he was baptized, had na anticonventional scientifical thought. The priest Mabo Bantu, through the secular Brotherhood of Ilú Sabbath, and the hermetic tradition of his family, has hundreds of alchemy treaties, many developed by him, which seeks the elevation of mind and spirit, purifying them and protecting matter from the negative influence both spiritual na physical; the polarities of the balance positive and negative-becoming inharmony with the inner Self, with astral forces and by his means; the conscience and knowledge to comprehend better the human cosmogony.;manipulate the excess or the chemical lack of the soul which reflects in the financial, love, intelectual life and physical and spiritual health. Always attended by advinity which works at the essence of the being so it will reach faster and with more efficiency their goals.

His manipulations are handmade, avoiding the use of chemical or manufactured products. Amongst many elements, he uses herbs from the amazon, Africa or the Himalaias; unguents and pastes from Egypt or Lebanon, vomit from whales, ethylicand and fluidical substances like the ether. Soacked and mixed under the enchanted tone of primitive conjurations and litanies, generaly in dead languages, envoking divinitres of forgotten pantheons, elaborates efficient formulas which transmute the essence of the human being, consequently altering the need or the bad luck of a person in every way, providing him enchantments be never had, shining all intelectual potenciality and creativity of the human being, and that will be noticed.

ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE THE UNITY'S PROGENY AND TOP OF THE EVOLUTION IN OUR SYSTEM. YOUR SUPERIOTY DOESN'T JUSTIFY INDIFFERENCE AT YOUR HABITAT. WITHOUT IT YOU CAN'T EXIST.
