As an alchemist, one needs only a direct insight into God and Nature. But I must say that
a careful examination of the Periodic Table of Elements has often aided my understanding
of Nature.
For example, we can easily perceive the evolution of the atomic universe, electron upon
electron: Hydrogen, Helium, Lithium... this is the study of atomic mass.
We may thereby also perceive which LM-ents (entia of the Lapis Macrocosmii and Microcosmii
- I made it up; it may or may not hold significance for you :)) are least dense and most.
We can also observe their manifestation as male and female, acid and alkali. This is the study
of valence - the positive or negative charge of an LM-ents outermost electron shell - the giving
and taking of Hydrogen. By understanding this, we can often predict the outcome/product of
the mixture or fusion of two entities. (Another worthwhile study in this area is The Table of
Affinities) For example, that iron will prefer the vitriolic (sulphuric) acid above the marine (HCl)
and nitric acids.
We can also learn a lot by studying the groups and columns. For example, the first column,
the alkali metals, all react violently with air and water due to their internal fire.

it is different to Mendeleev periodic table
