An Abyss

Post  Anibis on Tue Nov 13, 2007 7:01 pm

Hey there. I am intruigued by alchemy and all the Hermetic arts. Here's a passage from a novel I read today that I liked alot:

Deep deep in mountains, where the earth is oldest, gold is. So you make deep mines to find it. But you must never take away all the gold; you must not, for you will take away the seed of gold, by which it grows. Like fruit, take away that which is ripe; leave the rest to ripen. And it will. Slowly, slowly, the stones of the mountain, the clays of it, grow up to be gold; they become gold
-From John Crowley's Aegypt, spoken by the character of Mr Talbot (Edward Kelley, Dee's skryer)

I thought it would be nice to have a presence here and have the odd chat with you folk. Cheers;

I am honoured you could join us!

LOL

I've seen you've mentioned that book before, now I might just have to read it since I liked what you wrote before!

Cool

Is the 'prima materia' user class symbolized by a big turd, or is that meant to be lead?

For an amazing film about alchemy which includes a sequence in which the magus tranforms a turd into gold nuggets, check this out: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071615/

Lol; from the review:

If you liked "The Wall" (you know, the Pink Floyd movie), but thought it was a bit of a downer and suffered from the lack of a fat woman humping an excitable, legless, animatronic horse, this movie could be for you.

if I knew poop was so prominent in alchemy that could have explained a lot

also it may have made me rethink getting into alchemy....or getting cats...

if there's one thing I hate, it's poop.

I won't even fertilize my flowers with it...I always use dried blood

but everyone starts out as a poo on this forum....xst that is funny....at least you say it nicely "prime materia" sounds kind of final fantasy Xish...

what does interiora mean? intestinal tract?

Anibis, you'll make a perfect victim (cough.. member) for our little experiment... Evil

It really is surprising, isn't it? Confused
