Nicholas Flamel Versus Michael Sendivogius On The Dry Path Of Alchemy

Here we will compare the alchemical writings of Nicholas Flamel against those of Michael Sendivogius as if the two were doing battle in the creation of the philosopher’s stone or the transmutation powder of alchemy. YouTube Video is the work of Steven School, Alchemist. Do Not Try This At Home. Not For Human Consumption.

Let us begin this battle of the sages with alchemical writings attributed to Nicholas Flamel.

I Nicholas Flamel am seized with a desire to write out the whole magistery of the secret of the Powder of Projection, or the Philosophical Tincture, which God hath willed to impart to his very insignificant servant, and which I have found out, as thou also wilt find out in working as I shall declare unto you. . Take thou in the first place the eldest or first-born child of Saturn, not the vulgar, 9 parts; of the sabre chalibs of the God of War, 4 parts. Put this latter into a crucible, and when it comes to a melting redness, cast therein the 9 parts of Saturn, and immediately this will redden the other. Some believe they have the whole magistery, when they have the heavenly Mercury prepared; but they are grossly deceived. It is for this cause they find thorns before they pluck the rose, for want of understanding. It is true indeed, that were they to understand the weight, the regimen of the fire, and the suitable way, they would not have much to do, and could not fail even if they would. But in this art there is a way to work. Learn therefore and observe well how to operate, in the manner I am about to relate to you. Take this white or red sulphur, triturate it in a glass or marble mortar, and pour on it, in sprinking it, a third part of its weight of the Mercury from which this sulphur has been drawn. put again this mixture into an oval glass; place it in a furnace on a suitable fire. Concoct until the said Mercury is changed into sulphur, and during this coction, thou wilt see wonderful things in thy vessel, that is to say, all the colours which exist in the world, which thou canst not behold without lifting up thy heart to God in gratitude for so great a gift. When thou has attained to the purple red, thou must gather it: for then the alchymical powder is made, transmuting every metal into fine pure and neat gold, which thou maist multiply by watering it as thou hast already done, grinding it with fresh “Mercury”, concocting it in the same vessel, furnace and fire, and the time will be much shorter, and its virtue ten times stronger. This then is the whole magistery done with “Mercury” alone, which some do not believe to be true, because they are weak and stupid, and not at all able to comprehend this work. the matter will pass through all the colours, the black, the ash colour, the blue, the green, the white, the orange, and finally the red as red as blood or the crimson poppy: aim only at this last colour; for it is the true sulphur, and the alchymical powder. If thou are disposed to multiply thy powder, take one part thereof, and water it with two parts of thy animated Mercury; make it into a soft and smooth paste; put it in a vessel as thou hast already done, in the same furnace and fire, and concoct it. This second turn of the philosophic wheel will be done in less time than the first, and thy powder will have ten times more strength. Let is wheel about again even a thousand times, and as much as thou wilt. Thou wilt then have a treasure without price, superior to all there is in the world, and thou canst desire nothing more here below, for thou hast both health and riches, if thou useth them properly. Excerpts compiled from writings attributed to Nicholas Flamel and or letter to nephew. Edited by Steven School.

And now, it is Michaels turn to spin thy alchemical wheel.

Our science is not a dream, as the vulgar crowd imagines, or the empty invention of idle men, as the foolish suppose, consider that this mystery is for wise men, and not for fools. Regulate the heat judiciously, until there appear colors like those of the Peacock’s Tail, and then continue to apply this well-regulated heat until the colors resolve themselves into a glorious purple followed by a final, fixed red. Excerpts from Michael Sendivogius New Chemical Light, Edited by Steven School.

Green Lion Alchemy

The term green lion in alchemy was also called green vitriol or our green gum, green dragon among other names. In the alchemical writings of Theophrastus Paracelsus he indicated that when alchemists were at the alchemy stage called green lion, that they were not far from the “stone”. The term VITRIOL comes from latin and basically meant visit the interior of the earth and there by rectification find the occult stone. V.I.T.R.I.O.L( vitriol) Acronym. VITRIOL is an acronym for Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem which translated is “Visit the interior of the earth, and by rectifification find the hidden stone (philosopher’s stone)”. The “green lion of alchemy,” is said to be a poisonous substance that appears when metal is degraded by acid.

What was Nicholas Flamel’s secret recipe for the Philosopher’s Stone of alchemy?

Some alchemical researchers have expressed opinion they believe Nicholas Flamel may have specialized in what was called the dry path of alchemy in regards to his secret recipe for the philosopher’s stone. In researching alchemical manuscripts attributed to him as well as his letter to his nephew coded words seemed to be in play to keep secret the formula for the philosopher’s stone. I remember reading a section which called for casting some forgotten ingredient upon another “smoking” and realizing their secret alchemy recipe did not list the real ingredients of the philosopher’s stone of alchemy. When a colleague purchased an unknown assortment of rare and antique books as a blind grab bag, old alchemy books were surprisingly discovered in the sealed box. One book in particular mentions saint Paul’s church yard in Paris. this book claims it has been translated from different languages and re published in different countries. it seems however that it may have come from the heart of medieval alchemy in Paris and includes works from famous alchemist’s such as Glauber, Paracelsus and others. No date has been found in this very old book. The image (in my opinion) sheds much light on Nicholas Flamel’s recipe for the philosopher’s stone by way of what appears to be identifying a certain portion of the dry path of alchemy. Modern Reprint Here

Is iron pyrite the philosopher’s stone of alchemy?

Here is a very interesting article that someone recently brought to my attention about sulfide minerals. One theory of mine is that perhaps nature evolves organic matter into iron pyrite over time through the natural process of “weathering” and that perhaps this system of natural evolution results in the end product of gold.

What are the best alchemy books for beginners?

Here are my top picks on which alchemy books I would recommend first as a good starting point on an alchemical library.

Alchemy of Herbs: Transform Everyday Ingredients into Foods and Remedies That Heal Kindle Edition by Rosalee de la Forêt (Author)   I believe that food and medicine are for the most part one and the same. I also belief that good health begins in the garden. Alchemy was not just the ancient predecessor of science, but of medicine as well. Many alchemical scholars of the past have advised that of the three realms or kingdoms which comprise the vast labyrinth that is alchemy, that the best place to start is in the plant realm.

The animal realm was often considered to be the next section of study for alchemists and this consisted of a great many things such as creating primitive nutritional supplements by grinding egg shells to powder or even making bone soup said to gather stem cells from bone marrow of chickens, fish, or even cows. One modern book I have read which seems to fit here is The Book of Aquarius: Alchemy and the Philosophers’ Stone: Alchemy Secrets Revealed Paperback – March 19, 2012 by Author Unknown (Author), Wanda Priday (Editor)

the book of aquarius alchemy secrets revealed alchemy and the philosopher's stone

The Book of Aquarius reveals one particular secret which has been kept hidden for the last 12,000 years. It is the nuts and bolts for the process of Alchemy. Alchemy is used to create the Philosophers’ Stone and the Elixir of Life, also known as the Fountain of Youth, Ambrosia, Soma, Amrita, and Nectar of Immortality. “Throughout history this secret has been used by a very few to extend their lives hundreds of years in perfect health, with access to unlimited wealth, among many other miraculous properties. Some kept the secret because they understood that the time was not right for the secret to be free for all people, but most kept the secret out of their own jealousy, ignorance, egotism and corruption. The Stone’s history and the history of the human race up until this day is a strange story full of secret societies, hooded cloaks, and mystical symbols. Such theatrics are childish and shallow. It’s pointless to look for the light in the shadows. The Philosophers’ Stone operates and is made by entirely natural and scientific means. Truth is always simple, beautiful and easy to understand.” Keywords The Book Of Aquarius, Alchemy And The Philosopher’s Stone, Alchemy Secrets Revealed.

Now, moving along as we climb the alchemical ladder towards The Magnum Opus of alchemy or The Grand Arcanum as it were one of my all time favorite best books on alchemy is…. Alchemy Unveiled by Johannes Helmond I never lose interest in this book, it seems like every time I pick it up I find another alchemical gem which deepens my level of understanding of the ancient hermetic science of alchemy.

alchemy unveiled

Alchemy is the last and highest knowledge which can be committed to paper in the form of letters. Beyond that, another language is required, one which cannot be committed to paper. Most people confuse iatrochemistry with Alchemy. When an Alchemist speaks of Mercury, Sulphur and Salt, he speaks of his spiritual, astral and physical bodies, not of the elements. Alchemy Unveiled describes the tribulations that a human being has to pass through in order to purify these three bodies. However, to achieve the level of an Alchemist requires daily study and strict daily mental, astral and physical exercises for many lifetimes. Many individuals have already achieved this goal. The purpose is not to convert a lower metal into gold, but to change an impure body into a pure body, namely the spirit, soul and physical bodies. An Alchemist is one who has passed the levels of a magician, spheric magician and Kabbalist. All these levels can be achieved without the help of a teacher! These Western writings are by those who have reached levels higher than an Alchemist. They have given us these writings, philosophically and practically. These sciences cannot be learned intellectually, but have to be approached with a clean heart. One’s character has to be completely free of all negative characteristics. And for the one who embarks on this journey, the first thing to be learned is what a positive characteristic is and what a negative characteristic is. And the reader will be surprised what negative characteristics are, because many of these characteristics are considered by most as positive. Alchemy Unveiled will lead the reader on a journey of a complete purification of the body, soul and spirit, and for the first time the mystery of the Philosopher’s Stone is openly explained. Much has been written about this subject, most of which is and remains incomprehensible for most. Many of the alchemical writings available were and are based on error and point the way to the wrong path. This is mainly due to the fact that many individuals do this for personal, material gain. Alchemy Unveiled begins with an explicit explanation of the symbolic language of Alchemy, which is a must for any further clear understanding of the entire text of this book. It explains the errors of many who were not in possession of the true knowledge regarding this art. It takes the reader on a journey through the ancient mysteries of Initiation, the Osiris mysteries, the Eleusian Mysteries, the Mysteries of Israel, the Christ-Mysterium and the Mystery of Alchemy. An excellent addition to the Franz Bardon books on Hermetics.

And now we move on to another good book further illuminating The Great Work of Alchemy. A Compendium of Works on the Philosopher’s Stone by Anonymous Anonymous (2015-06-02) Paperback – 1798 by Anonymous Anonymous (Author)

No warranty is expressed or implied as to the accuracy or completeness of any information presented here. The black stage of the great work. In ancient times the great work of alchemy or the quest for the philosopher’s stone was said to have been primarily recognized by a series of color changes which was rumored to consist of both primary and secondary colors. The colors of the great work of alchemy mainly emphasized Black, White, and Red along with Caudia Pavonis or The Peacock’s Tail as the main points of focus. Secondary colors may have included citrinatas, the green lion of alchemy, and a royal purple which was apparently called “Bathed in the Purple Glory”. Ancient alchemist’s theoretically worked upon secret exotic matter or “Our Earth” by adding “Sophick Mercury” which was rumored to have been a secret water and not common elemental mercury, Whitening or “Cooking” the matter hence the phrase “alchemists burn with water, not fire” However medieval alchemy was known to have used at least four types of “fire” one of which being elemental fire.
