Natures first green is gold,
her hardest hue to hold,
her early leaf’s a flower,
but only so an hour,
then leaf subsides to leaf,
so eden sank to grief,
so dawn goes down to day,
nothing gold can stay.
Michael Sendivogius was like the king of alchemy to which other adepts paled in comparison. His alchemical works were based upon the great adept Alexander Seton however Seton instilled in him a lifelong passion regarding the alchemical arts of the ancient science with respect to medicine as well as the philosopher’s stone and the transmutation of base metals into gold or silver. As one ascends the rungs of the alchemical ladder it becomes clear that of the philosophical writings attributed to the adepts of the hermetic science of alchemy, whose were the most difficult to decipher? whose intrigued us enough to keep us coming back for more?, whose bore the highest wisdom concerning the light of truth? And whose were the most rewarding after years of study while the golden dawn approached?, Whose words rang true as the light of truth finally began to set in, illuminating the ignorant from the wise? Michael Sendivogius, the king of alchemy. The deep philosophy embedded in his words for all to see, but few to understand. The mark of the true adept.

This alchemy study group is for serious researchers of the hermetic mystery of the ancient science and not a Harry Potter fan club. Steven School has been researching alchemy with a focus upon the study of the philosopher’s stone since 2008. Alchemy is an in depth examination of natures mystery of natural creation beginning with the decomposition of matter followed by rebirth forming the compounds of new substances through natures rain cycle coupled with the dry heat of the sun with the earth as its nurse. The belief of the alchemist is that over time, matter evolves within the earth’s crust in a repetitive cycle towards perfection.

The ravens head of alchemy which is also called the black stage signifies the alchemical “death” of the matter being worked upon by the alchemist as the substance is washed clean of its original sin. This sign marks the consummation of the royal wedding of the sun and moon in which a good union has taken place. Decomposition or putrefaction is the sign the alchemist must see before the philosophical or alchemical regeneration of matter can occur which then signifies the rebirth of the supernatural son of the sun. The phoenix risen from the ashes of the black alchemical sun.

The sun turned black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.
The philosopher’s stone from the ancient hermetic science of alchemy seems to be making a comeback as the world awakens from their slumber of the daily 9 to 5 grind and the doldrums of watching sports on the television. A product of the mystery schools rumored to have the power to create kings and queens wealthy enough to rule over the world as “gods”. The philosopher’s stone has created legends for centuries causing some to seek the spark of truth that ignited this secret fire. If there were no truth to plant a seed, then what caused this alchemical tree of knowledge to take root and grow? The coveted and much sought after philosopher’s stone of alchemy has been rumored to be in the possession of high ranking members of ancient secret societies for thousands of years hypothetically granting eternal life, health, and wealth to those who possess this pearl of great price. Nicholas Flamel was a scribe and bookseller from Paris, France who people have written books about since he was rumored to have discovered the legendary philosopher’s stone after a lifetime of diligent study and research with the help of his wife Perenelle Flamel. One story says that grave robbers opening the tomb of Nicholas Flamel found it to be empty, they were supposedly looking for his vast amounts of alchemical gold which people of the time believed that he had created in his home by performing alchemical experiments concerning transmutation of lead into gold or even mercury into gold. Is Nicholas Flamel still alive? Article written by Steven School, alchemist.The philosopher’s stone book.
