I wanna learn alchemy. Please tell me where to learn it. I'm super interested.
Perhaps you all should look into mr. Aleister Crowley for knowledge, since he helped to write the schools of the Templi in the early 1900's. His story is a great one on what power the school of Alchemy has. Its also a good lesson on what happens to the soul, mind, and heart when the Magi weilding these teachings does not follow through with the full lesson.
I believe I have an answer.1)it is technically true you can do this, but I believe one of the main reasons is to have the ingredients harmonically charged.2) it is kind of true, but it is not necessary. 3)it is explained that an elixer requires all three parts; Mercury, Sulfur, and salt. It is supposed to mimic life.4)You can. It won't make a difference, as the ash (or Salt) has no effect other than stabilize the elixer. You can also get potassium carbonate (K2CO3). It is literally the same thing. But according to most sources, it's better for beginners to make them all at once.
I really appreciate the information shared, and I like the way you explain the subject. A beginning alchemist putting it simple, I would say as being an alchemist that the student becomming a master would be the most logical way.You know, I am open for contact, when we walk certain parts together, one could easily keep tracks, while the other is planning the route.And who knows both of those aren't necessary anymore as we're moving further.Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
Making an Elixir
Definitely interested in part 2, 3 etc...
Dude, first learn English. and if you're too lazy to type "to" you're probably too lazy to do anything.
Hey a fellow alchemist here to make things simple Mercury is technically the spirit/soul and Sulfur is brain/mind (which cannot be made by humans except through birth) and yes Salt is the body which when trying to transmute will end up in fail guaranteed so a lesson here for all alchemist just work on metal not bodies.
How to Meditate Alchemically
How to get started with Alchemy
What kind of moon would I have to start on if I wanted to do it the old fashioned way and obtain the alcohol from the herb itself? I would be extracting the oil, then the alcohol, and then calcinating the remains. I think it's waxing, but I'm not sure.
I cringe when people ask if this is like the show full metal alchemist, if people could walk around slap there hands to the ground and repair a clock then there would be a lot of carpenters out of jobs. The show is really good and can teach you some cool lessons but they do leave out a lot of basic rules about alchemy such as Mercury, sulfur, and salt.
I wouldn't say Christianity was against it, I heard in medieval times lords would promote alchemist to create gold from basic metals
Thebig bang is now the big bust and repeated lab trials have produced new preciouselements and will pave the way to a dial a metal future with scalable metalmaking technologies. Neutron stars are not needed; NANO LENR conditions withtechnology will create new elements.See: https://vimeo.com/90037448If anyone is interested in purchasing the surplus lab and learning how to makegold go to ebay and bid: http://www.ebay.com/itm/252442115943?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
The bible refers to anything occult or black magic, not sorcery in general. Anyways alchemy is more of a science than witchcraft
why do you have to be older than 16? what are the risks?
Quick question, have you considered attempting an ens? Namely, the primum ens mellissae? I'm also interested in communicating with you directly.
Did you notice when he said "if you are less than 16 you should abandon the idea of alchemy for a few years"?
Sorcery is a sin in Christianity? I wouldn't say that. Where did you learn that?
Yes a part two please! I know this is 3 or 4 years late... Also I replied to this comment because to post a comment it told me I had to attach a picture of what I've made. And obviously I haven't made anything..
Is alchemy a form of sorcery/magick? I need to know because I'm a Christian and sorcery is a sin in my religion.
What does the symbol mean?
Could Alchemy as seen in Full Metal Alchemist be possible at all? With transmutation circles and such?
is it real i mean is it posible to creat poisons that coud kill person or can i change color of onemetakl to other ?
Yep, if it is labeled blasphemy to value knowledge more than any physical items, then heck yea! Blasphemy is the best course of action!
Thanks for trying, but I actually enjoy my ideals being blasphemous, that means im doing something right ^__^
Blasphemy or not blasphemy, please be respectful of others' beliefs and opinions.
It's metaphorical. By "transmuting yourself", the author points out that if you disregard the philosophy or decide to not know the theory before attempting alchemy, you will fail at it. That's what I understand so far.
What would be the limit to the kinds of herbs for this elixr?
oh, and what methods could I use to find me a teacher?
How to you seperate them from another while the soul the bod and the spirit is all mixed
I would like to know your email so I may ask you questions. One question is that, how can I find someone to teach me as I want to understand a little more?Please Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you think I want to learn FMA alchemy (amazing show) I do not. I want to learn true alchemy, whatever it may take I am willing to endure. - Percystar1
I read this and I want to learn alchemy and the secrets it holds. I know this a few months old and such and I want to find actual alchemy tests and such so if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated and I thank anyone who does in advance. - Percystar1
What website? - AshtenS
So what do you mean by transmute yourself? Do you mean trying to revive the dead and then failing and losing body parts? - AshtenS
Hey thanks that was a huge help!!

Hi I Went on the Internet and found a REAL Alchemy State Exam and passed with an 83•/• Thank you. P.S. I found a book called real alchemy
I want to learn alchemy. If any one can help me out it would be great. Anything at all. Theories, tips, or anything i wold be willing to read. Just sent it to me on this site. I also want to learn how it started and why people are still using it today. I want to learn all of alchemy's secrets. No madder how well protected.
question did you learn alchemy yourself or did a person or group of people teach you.
I like the brotherhood cause Al gets his body back
hello and thank you very much I wish to do that I am a begginger thanks
okay, so I have taught myself everything about alchemy from research. I have the prima materia, as does everyone else. Since I have taught myself all of this information obviously I don't have proof, but... I know what I know is real. And I know it's accurate. Basically all I need help with is the set up, I know what I need, I just want to make absolute sure that I am performing it right. I basically just need someone to be a mentor, and im not like all these others asking for you to teach me alchemy. I actually understand it and have it all figured out down to the last detail besides the actual process and set up in witch I would like guidance. But if it's not offered I will most definitely accomplish it alone. You can email me at k36wryi8.grr.la your guidance would be much appreciated
Hello, I've always thought about alchemy, I've always wondered how it works. I'm willing to learn, but my main goal is frankly to achieve immortality. Ask my friend, well you can't at this time because you don't quite know who he is. But he and I are willing to learn, mostly me though. So if you will e-mail me. Someone that can teach me their insights. I want to learn everything that I can. And I want to make my dream become a reality. My friend and I have devised a way to grasp immortality through technological means. But I'm not willing to share that quite yet. But they way we've been able to decipher it is through technological means. I want to learn more so that I can grasp the aspect of immortality through the means of alchemy. I feel like it would be better than to use the technological direction of the topic. My e-mail is email@example.com
