Picture of Simple Alchemy
Alchemy. when you think of it what do you think of? A mysterious art? Magically turning lead into gold? or possibly that famous anime? Alchemy is all of these things, and partially the last one. ill talk about that later though. I am here to spread the ideas of Alchemy. But I will not preach, only enlighten.

I am a beginning alchemist currently working on my first elixir so I can't answer too many questions. But I will definitely try my best.

Step 1:

Picture of
What is Alchemy? The dictionary defines it as : a medieval chemical science and speculative philosophy aiming to achieve the transmutation of the base metals into gold, the discovery of a universal cure for disease, and the discovery of a means of indefinitely prolonging life. While this is true, I think of it as a blend of spirituality, philosophy and science. Science states that through matter life was created, in Alchemy, it was life that created matter. everything was created from one source of matter. And that matter created the Three Essentials. Mercury, Sulfur and Salt. But trust me, it has nothing to do with the liquid metal.

Some believe that Alchemy is a psychological aspect in life. But why is it that many of the older scriptures seem to describe Alchemy in a fashion that would almost be considered Chemistry. Now lemme delve right into the bare bones basics of Alchemy.

Alchemy has three aspects as I’ve said before, Mercury, Sulfur and Salt. Let’s take a look at Mercury.

How would one go about creating the Materia Prima? I hear it is every where we go a simple material but not recognized by its value, And if you could it would be great if you email me at romanthunder47@gmail.com I think I may have the lost ingredients to a certain beloved elixir of abramelin the Mage.

What is the main equipment for alchemy like in chemistry you need certian equipment to do experiments?

And is it a very challenging process?

Can i just ask

What is an elixir???
And is alchemy a religion???

Thanks,
Alan
An elixir is a combination of the 3 essentials and is an evolved form of nature. Seperation of the excess and recombination of the 3 most pure things in a plant are what make an elixir powerful.

Alchemy isn't a religion because it has no main figure to worship and has no plans for afterlife. It is considered a philosophy.

In alchemy, does immortality be ever possible?
If so, what are your evidences.
and 2nd question, if immortality in alchemy is possible, doesn't it interfere with religion?

maybe
There is no evidence to support immortality. Allegedly Nicolas Flemmel had achieved it, but I do not know of any way to become immortal. The closest you get I believe is the Philosopher's Stone, but those are extremely difficult to make.
Thanks :)
alchemy is not a religion, it's a scienc

How do i transmute myself?

You begin by creating the 7 basics. Take each one per day, on the respective date and meditate. The more you do this the purer you will become.

this is probably a stupid question but, what are the seven basics?

HAHAHAHA Alchemy even doe it seems like this great type of magic science it is not alchemy my friend is a a form or should I even better state a start of early chemistry. The forming of new materials threw the use of already existing matter is very possible I have even created a prototype of a machine to do such this. However to morph an substance of matter you must first take this matter substance to it base elements and from there you can then morph the atoms and create them into a new substance by the manipulation of the said elements protons causing an change in the element its self in basic terms of what you are calling your "alchemy" you can do this.

I actually read and watched an interview about this guy who made a machine that turned lead into gold in extremely small amounts.. the downside was that the cost to do it made it a big waste of time and money. I kinda agree about the early chemistry thing but I think we've lost ( we being the general public) a lot of valuable science (alchemy .. chemistry.. whatever) over the last few thousand years. People don't tend to use science to make concoctions with health boosting consciousness altering properties now a days. We have drugs... but most are extremely harmful. We have health foods and drinks.. but they have ingredients that we don't want in them and theres always room for improvement. Imagine what kind of things these ancient alchemists must have experienced keeping in mind that they were probably using themselves (or test subjects :D) as human Guinea pigs.

i agree with u it is only a start of an early chemistry

Do tell of the method of operation, good spirit.

Honestly I just want to make gold. Elixir is secondary.
