Re: What Brought Me to Alchemy

I used to work as a security officer, in my lifetime I've been pumled, beaten, stabbed, attacked by a lunatic with a hammer, much like a piece of gold on a blacksmiths bench. Shaped and molded into who I am. Evil

Who in their right mind would want to live forever, once was enough! Suspect

Sounds more like a curse than a blessing if you ask me, but heh, lightning bolts out of your fingers now that I can agree with...

Alchemist *zip crackle* "you will do as I command.." little bloke "no I wont" *Sizzle, Snap, Crackle and Pop!* Alchemist roars "YOU WILL DO AS I COMMAND!" little bloke "I will do as you command my lord, what is your will?" Alchemist "Fetch me some grapes and a bottle of merlot and while your at it run me a hot bath!"

There are a few people in my life, as I am sure their are in everybodys who I'd love to get even with (even steven) and I can think of no better way than turning their flash ferrari into a smoking potatoe chip!

Especially when they bought that car with my money, sigh, a story for another day... Sleep

All I'll say is if you leave a will and leave stuff to your grand-kids, careful who you make the executor of your final will and testiment, or you might find as I did they swan off on long holidays and get their fingernails painted, whilst your struggling to make a living. Sad Hopefully this indervidual will get to see a differant type of holiday soon, the kind where you dont get to see day light for a fair few years. They'll get what's coming to them and I wont care...

Unfortunatly that is going to become a firm reality for them, they made one tiny mistake you see, they sold the shares that where mine two or three years after the death! How can a dead person cash in there shares, they cant...(unless their an alchemist!) It's very unfortunate some people are motivated by greed and that is unfortunatly their ultimate downfall.

My Epitaph; There he goes by the grace of god, he lived his life riding his hot rod.

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one here whose interest in alchemy was sparked by Fullmetal Alchemist.

The circumstances of my life drew me to a spiritual school in which I was taught
to raise the vibrations of my body through focussed intent and pranayama.
The school had/has a bookstore and also invites people to come and lecture.
In this way I was introduced to the Essene, David Hudson and Art Kunkin at lectures
and the books of Fulcanelli and other alchemists.

Practical laboratory alchemy is a way to produce the same "states" that I learned
to produces "spiritually". It's possible that the P-stone cannot be produced
without the proper, corresponding consciousness.
According to quantum mechanics, this would be true, and we are dealing with
quanta, the subtle, m-state, etc - matters which exists more in the realm
of consciousness/spirit than physical matter.

Is that all there is?

I was on the corner of Olive and Broadway...somewhat disenchanted with the world around me at the time. I came to the realization that there was no magic in the world, and that there never was. I felt that this broken, flawed, and ridiculous world was what we inherited from our father's father. That no matter what- we will eat, we will sleep, we will fuck, we will breed, and then we will die...in no particular order. Obviously pessimism grew like a weed, corrupting the idealism of my twenties. In turn I began to loose all hope, drive, or curiousity regarding all aspects of life. Shortly thereafter I closed my business- and gave, sold or threw away everything I owned...and went out into the forest. Nothing miraculous happened in the woods, barring some strange noises late one night...but after returning...slowly...very slowly, I was proven completely wrong. For me it is the question...and the answer- Alchemy.

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one here whose interest in alchemy was sparked by Fullmetal Alchemist.

I have watched it, I'm a manga-fan, but the true reason I got into it was a 20 word paragraph in a science book, it went something along the lines of...

"Transmutation, you give, you get. Sacrifices are made in your lifetime, Mankind strives for power. "

It went on to say something about a RED STONE. I got to thinking, hmmm, lead which is a ugly metal, turn into Gold?

PROFIT$

Soon to realize 6 months later, I am here, sacrificing my time to create theorys, papers, and other nonsense.

PS. That manga is good though, don't get me wrong.
