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.

If you wish to discuss, we may need a way to talk properly. I am unsure I would post my e-mail address on here, I do not think you should too.

Hi there I'm just an anonymous alchemist without a name but you can call me Judgement ^_^ I've been an alchemist for about 7 years now (Since I was smaller and got intrigued by Alchemy) and have made and invented a couple elixirs of my own for friends and personal use. I must say by far you're the only person I've seen so far that has an actual understanding of the basics of Alchemy and doesn't just go around pretending to be an alchemist and being a Full Metal Alchemist wannabe. I've been writing a small book on the basics of alchemy and was wondering if you'd like to proof read it for me and collaborate on it allowing a proper basic alchemy book to be made for those wishing to become alchemists such as us. If you wanna get in touch with me I have a steam account as well as a skype and email Steam- The Lone Alchemist Skype- Judgement Eternal the one with the skull picture and Email TheLoneAlchemist@gmail.com

if you can understand alchemy can you tell me some books for a begginer alchemist
Can you email me a explanation on celestial niter and salt and how would one start practicing or learning alchemy. Shadowhunt742@gmail.com

Sorry about that typo my email is TheLoneAlchemist1@gmail.com XD

Ps

I have an almost pure purple Philosophers stone sitting on my desk I made (Took a really long time to make) It's solid but it breaks if you use to much force on it.

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.

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

hello need a alchemy teacher need to learn more
