‘The Blackness Hinders The Fusion” is a term come to mind from an old alchemy manuscript long forgotten and quoted from memory as the years have rolled by. The clouds rolling across the sky indicate that time moves on as the days change in the blink of an eye leaving only distant memories of the past. But one must know what is pure and what is impure before we can hope to pluck the rose. The path of alchemy is lined with thorns at every turn leading alchemists astray as they become lost in the labyrinth of alchemy. The black sun comes to mind, lighting the way through the darkness. “The sun turned black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became red as blood”. An old alchemy bible quote appears to unlock some of the secrets of Sol and Luna as they are cleansed and prepared for the hermetical wedding in the fountain of nature. #StevenSchoolAlchemy

The LORD God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed out of the ground. Then, the LORD God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
biblical image showing the path to the tree of life in the bible
Genesis 3;22, 24
Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”– therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.

The elixir of life, also known as elixir of immortality and sometimes equated with the philosopher’s stone of alchemy , is a potion that supposedly grants the drinker eternal life and or eternal youth. The great elixir was also said to cure all sickness. Alchemists sought the secret alchemy recipe for the elixir of life formula calling it aqua vitae or Aurum Potabile meaning liquid gold and gold of the sun. Some alchemists even called the elixir of life gold of a thousand mornings since ancient legends in alchemy circles depict biblical lifespans around 1000 years or more for those who found the secret of the eternal life mentioned in the bible.

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.
