On making gold yesterday. Tradition, ethics, history

It is essential not to fall into the incorrect idea of believing that alchemy only means “to make gold”, as we have already explained in the editorial, and we invite everyone to read it because it contains all the ethics of the science/art in just a few sentences. Every form, sector or level of knowledge involves an unavoidable responsibility, even if we do not know or notice it.

The alchemist stripped bare in the bachelor (article from Nitrogeno 2) Even If I have ever practiced alchemy, it was in the only way it can be done now, that is to say, without knowing it.[1] -Marcel Duchamp The Philosopher’s stone is nothing more or less than that which was to enable man’s imagination to take a stunning revenge on all things.[2] -Andre Breton Alchemy is a word that contains several notions, of which only the most common-and least important-is usually remembered.

Nushadir. The salt of Ammon or Amun: an appropriate practice of Inner Alchemy

Friar Basilio Valentino writes of this salt: When they break my wingsand prepare me to be bathed in water- which is my enemy -I become capable of breaking the metals,and I break them with violent strenght.So that a fine mercury is producedThe tartar must be there toomore I cannot give to youif the Sun and the Moon are not in me. I find it very interesting that the good Friar Basilio likes to identify himself[1] with the substance of the salt of Ammon or Amun: an appropriate practice of Inner Alchemy.
