John Dee in The Rosicrucian Secrets when speaking of the water that wets not the hands as a dry, slimy water in which the four elements water, fire, air and earth are united into one common saltish, metalline water, the first matter of metals gives us a description of this water and although he speaks somewhat vaguely and paradoxically at times he gives us certain common clues that can be tied to other authors to further effect the realizations in our minds: ".....wherefore I will return to the First Matter; and I say it is no kind of water whatsoever. If thou wilt attain to the truth, rely upon my words, for I speak the truth. The mother or First Matter of metals is a certain watery substance, neither very water nor very earth, but a third thing compounded of both and retaining the complexion of neither. To this agrees the learned Valentine in his apposite and genuine description of our sperm. Materia prima, saith he, set aquosa substantia, sicca repeta et nulli materiae comparabilis. The First Matter is a waterish substance found dry, or of such a complexion that wets not the hand, and nothing like to any other matter whatsoever. Another excellent and well-experienced philosopher defines it thus. Est terrena aqua et aquosa terra, in terrae ventre terra commixta, cum qua se commiscet spiritus et coelestis comparabilis. It is, saith he, an earthy water and a watery earth, mingled with earth in the belly of the earth; and the spirit and influences of heaven commix themselves therewith. Indeed it cannot be denied but some authors have named this substance by the names of all ordinary waters, not to deceive the simple but to hide it from the ranting, ill disposed crew. On the contrary, some have expressly and faithfully informed us it is no common water, and especially the reverend Turba. Ignari, said Agadmon, cum audiunt nomen aquae putant aquam nubis esse, quod si libros nostros intelligerent, scirent esse aquam permanentum, quae absque suo compari cum quo facta est unum permanens esse non possit. The ignorant, saith he, when they hear us name water, think it is water of the clouds; but if they understood our books they should know it to be a permanent or fixed water which, without its companion, to which it hath been united, cannot be permanent. The noble and knowing Sendivogius tells us the very same thing. Aqua nostra est aqua coelestis, mon madefaciens manus, non vulgi, sed pluvialis. Our water is a heavenly water, which wets not the hands, not that of common water, but almost, as it were, pluvial. We must therefore consider the several analogies and similitudes of things, or we shall never be able to understand the philosophers.

This water then wets not the hands, which is notion enough to persuade us it can be no common water.

It is a metalline, bitter, saltish liquor. It hath a true mineral complexion. Habet, saith Raimund Lullis, speciem solis et lunae, et in tali aqua nobis apparuit, non in aqua fontis aut pluviae. But in another place he describes it more fully. Est aqua sicca, saith he, non aqua nubis aut phlegmatica, sed aqua cholerica, igne calidior. It is a dry water, not water of the clouds or phlegmatic water, but a choleric water, more hot than fire. It is, moreover, greenish to the sight, and the same Lully tells you so. Habet colorem lacertae viridis. It looks, saith he, like a green lizard. But the most prevalent colour in it is a certain inexpressible azure, like the body of heaven in a clear day. It looks in truth like the belly of a snake, especially near the neck, where the scales have a deep blue tincture; and this is why the philosophers call it their serpent or dragon. The predominant element in it is a certain fiery, subtle earth, and from this prevalent part the best philosophers have denominated the whole compound. Paracelsus names it openly but in one place, and he calls it viscum terrae, the slime or viscous part of the earth. Raymund Lully describeth the crisis or constitution of it in these words: Substantia lapidis, nostri, saith he, est tota pinguis, et igne impregnata. The substance of our Stone is altogether fat or viscous and impregnated with fire --- in which respect he calls it elsewhere not water but earth. Capias terrum nostram, saith he, impregnatam a sole, quia lapidem est honoratus, repertus in hospitiis, et est intus inclusum velut magnum secretum et thesaurus incantatus. Take our earth which is impregnated or with child by the sun; for it is our precious Stone which is found in desolate houses,(speaks of a subtle niterous earth, underlined for alfr) and there is shut up in it a great secret and treasure enchanted. And again, in a certain place, he delivers himself thus: Prima materia, Fili, est terra subtilis sulphurea, et haec nobilis terra dictum est subjectum mercuriale. My son, he saith, the First Matter is a subtle, sulphureous earth, and this noble earth is called a mercurial subject. Know then for certain that this slimy, moist sperm or earth must be dissolved into water, and this is the Water of the Philosophers, not any common water whatsoever. This is the grand secret of the Art, and Lully discovers it with a great deal of honesty and charity. Argentum vivum nostrum, saith he, non est argentum vivum vulgare: imo argentum vivum nostrum est aqua alterius naturae, quae reperiri non potest supra terram, cum in actionem venire non possit per naturam, absque adjutorio ingenii et humanorum manuum operationibus. Our Mercury is not common Mercury or Quicksilver. But our Mercury is a water which cannot be found on earth, for it is not made or manifested by the ordinary course of nature, but by the art and manual operations of man. Seek not then for that in nature which is an effect beyond her ordinary process; you must help her, that she may exceed beyond her common course, or all is to no purpose. In a word, you must make this water before you can find it. In the interim you must permit the philosophers to call their subject or chaos a water, for there is no proper name for it, unless we call it a sperm, which is a watery substance but certainly no water. "

In addition in this following tract from Secret Symbols of The Rosicrucians (http://www.levity.com/alchemy/secret_s.html)it can be readily seen that the same water is being spoken of in regard to the first matter of metals and its denomination as the sperm of the world:

"I attract all those seeking God and the truth; those alone will find the art. I am the Magnet-Stone of divine love; attracting the Iron-hard men on the road to the truth.

I am the moisture which preserves everything in nature and makes it live, I pass from the upper to the lower planes; I am the heavenly dew and the fat of the land; I am the fiery water and the watery fire; nothing may live without me in time; I am close to all things yea; in and through all things, nevertheless unknown.


Nevertheless I only am in the grasp of the Philosophers.
I unfold and fold up again,
Bringing contentment to the artists,
Without me thou canst do nothing
Furthering any of your affairs.
Therefore fear God, pray and work in patience, if you find me your want would cease and you have a merciful God who befriendeth thee and giveth thee whatever thy heart may desire.

This moisture must be caught lest it should change into vapour or fume.
The two vapours are the roots of the art.

The Prima Materia derives its existence from the Fiat, the Word of creation. And this Word comes from the Father who is the creator of all things, and the Spirit radiates from both: This is God's life giving air. Then, too, air brings to Iife everything within the elements. The fire warms all things, the water refreshes, delights and saturates all things: And the nitrous earth, Mother-like, nourishes and sustains all things; the air was born out of fire, and in turn makes the fire burn, that it may live, but air in the form of water is food for the fire, and the fire burns into this element: Water and dew of the ground, the greasy fat dew of the ground, the earth as keeper of nitrous salt nourishes it. For the womb of the earth is the sulphuric nitrous salt of nature, the one good thing God has created in this visible world.

The same Salt-Mother of the elements is the nitrous, aluminous and spiritual gumosic water, Salt earth or crystal, which has Nature in its womb, a Son of the Sun, and a Daughter of the Moon. It is a Hermaphrodite, born out of the wind, a phoenix living in fire, a pelican, reviving his dear young ones with its blood; the young Icarus, drowned in the water, whose nurse is the earth, whose Mother is the wind, whose Father is the fire, the water her caretaker and drink, one stone and no stone, one water and no water, nevertheless a stone of living power and a water of living might; a sulphur, a mercury, a salt, hidden deep in nature, and which no fool has ever known nor seen."

And in the Golden Chain of Homer one can begin to see more clearly how in fact through art this spiritual water is engendered: "The 4 so-called Elements have been separated out of the Chaos, but they proceed all from one. The form is but one, and the Matter is but one. The form is fire, and the Matter is water.
The difference consists in their external appearance, by Fermentation fire becomes air, and air becomes water, and water is become earth; But when fire is fixed by Art or by Nature it becomes earth, and when the earth is volatilised by water it becomes air and fire.
Because one Element can be converted into the other, if this was not true they would differ centrally, but they do not. The Chaos which produced these Elements was in the beginning fire and water only, these two have been divided into four b a further volatilisation and Inspissation: By volatilisatian extennation or rerefaction, Humidity becomes air animated by fire, but by condensation in Inspissation of that Primordial Humidity the Earth has been formed with the fire turned downwards, toward the Center of the Earth. The Hieroglyphic characters of the Elements explain their nature exactly.
There is not a Subject under the Heavens, whether liquid or dry which does not contain this Universal fire, and Primordial Humidity. The first is called Innate Heat, -- the last is called Radical Humidity.
The Universal fire becomes Humidity externally, but remained fire internally; being internally extreamly spiritual and volatile, it was of course extreamly active and moveable, and by that primitive mobility, excited warmth and fermentation and by that fermentation the Universal vinegar was, and is continually generated, and when this meets with a proper Body, whether in water or in the earth the Universal Sperm becomes visible and Corporeal, but whilst it is only a Vapour in the atmosphere, it is then the Universal Astral and incorporeal Sperm. This is the influence we receive from Heaven by means of the Air.
The Heavens give their influence, so does the Air, Water and Earth, and with united efforts they fabricate continually the Universal Sperm of the World. "

However a paragraph before,... stepping back a bit he tells us in less philosophical terms and in more concrete words how this much sought after vinegar of the philosophers that is, the dry water is created and how the four elements are united to create this sperm of the world:

"These four so-called Elements, which must fabricate the Universal Sperm or regenerate the Chaos, when one Extream is considered towards the other, seem quite contrary, and indeed as contraries they cannot effect any good; yet when they meet orderly, they are fully capable to execute that what God has ordained them for.
It is a natural and philosophical Axiom "Non transire posse abuno Extremo ad alterum absque medio," -- that is: It is impossible to proceed from one Extream to another Extream without a Medium. This Axiom every Artist ought to mind, thousands err because they do not observe this Truth.
Fire cannot become water without air, and earth cannot become air without water . If you would unite fire, as being extreamly volatile and subtil, with the earth, which is corporeal and fixt, you will never be able to do it; because the most Volatile will forsake the fixt and return to its Chaos. This is so in all Natural Things, that the most Volatile principle, cannot unite with the most fixt without its proper medium. An Artist ought to observe this constantly that he may not lose his time, his Matter, and Expenses.
Therefore if you want to unite Heaven or fire with the earth, or convert fire into earth, unite it first with its nearest volatile medium and they will unite immediately, when that is done, give them the water, as a medium between air and earth, and they will also unite; then add the earth, and thus you may unite fire with earth and fix it therein; and so vice versa turn the earth into water with water, then convert it into air, and the air into fire by means of air.
The Heaven or fire is extreamly subtil, the air is also subtil, but one degree more corporeal than the fire; water is again a degree more corporeal than the air, and the earth is a degree more corporeal than the water. Thus we must proceed as Nature does, and we may then obtain a Quintessentificated Operation, if we do not mind this, we can do little or nothing.
Nature has its different degrees of subtilty, and mixes the most subtil fire with the less subtil, and that with the least subtil.
When they are united, they influence into the most subtil water, then into the less subtil, and into the grossest. Then it mixes gradually with the most subtil earth, with the less and least subtil, until it becomes Rocks and Stones.
In a chemical Anatomy we see how the most subtil comes over first, and how Nature regulates her Operations, and does not confound one principle with another, but lets go the most Volatile and most subtil first, and then the next less Volatile, and so on etc. for Example:....
( and here the charitable author gives the experiment for creating this spiritual dry water through the volitilzation of the fixed in this case beginning with the most subtle parts of a virgin earth and eventually encompassing and volitilizing even the most fixed parts of that earth as the water progress into a more and more effluent and corrosive water and the fixing of that beginning water into a more of an earth like substance that is a dry, pregnant fat water, through the mediums of air and fire as the agents of comixtion)

Take an earth out of a Field or Meadow or what Earth you please, pour Water upon it so as to dilate your Earth well, then let it stand a few days and you will find that the coarse heavy earth settles at the bottom of the Vessel, you must stir it 3 or 4 times a day. The water will in the meantime dissolve the most subtil earth which is its salt, this does unite with the water, as being a Virgin earth.
As soon as this salt, or Virgin earth is extracted out of the common earth, the water cannot dissolve it any further.
Now you must distil this water containing the salt, into a spiritual water, and you must cohobate so often until all the salt has come over with the water.
This water now has the power to dissolve again the next subtil earth, which can like the first salt be distilled over as a spiritual water.
With this Water you may proceed in dissolving more of the remaining earth, until by distillations and cohobations, you have dissolved the whole quantity and volatilised it into a spiritual water; This is a tedious Operation but of great moment: In the same manner Nature operates by dissolving and coagulating, until the Universal Sperm of all Things is generated, which is universal seed.
The Artist must observe that Nature proceeds gradually and regularly. and observes time weight, and measure, he must transpose the External into the Internal and Heavenly, and he will obtain more and more knowledge.

As further example of this simple and cheap process,... the way of the poor that Fulcanelli said, " It is the clay and the way of the poor, of the simple and the modest, of those whom nature fills with wonder even by her most humble manifestations. " I will continue by citing the commonality of the aforementioned experiment with this one, which gives in the first place the same experiment on a virgin earth insippitated with a niterous agent through dew, for dew is well noted for some time now to yield niter upon drying in a cool place, and the separation of the three principles and their subsequent purification and reunion into the mercury of the sages, our dry water, and its fermentation with gold and further multiplication with fresh unspecified mercury to produce the philosophers stone, the diaphanous red glass of gold.... the document , entitled Opus Magnum Ex Virgina Terra is found in Chemical Secrets by Sir Kenneth Digby: (leaving out the secret symbols of philosophical shorthand for they do not copy and paste here nor do I feel the need to spell out the process in its entirety out of respect for what I feel the authors wishes were, but these symbols are very easily deciphered by any student of the art with more than a passing interest in alchemy)

OPUS MAGNUM EX VIRGINEA TERRA.
Take reddish rich Virgin earth in , impregnate it with , serene and dew, till the end of May: Then imbibe sprinklingly with dew gathered in May, and dry in , expose all night to the and Air, se¬curing it from Rain. Still when it is dry, imbibe and turn the earth often. Continue this till mation. The hot (especially in the Dog-days) will make a pure salt shoot up, which mingle back into the earth, by turning it all over. Then distill by graduated as A. F. forcing all the spirits over at last; you must give fourty hours , extream at last. Put all the
-26-
liquor and salt that cometh over, to digest and circulate a month in fino, in a great ballon close shut. Then separate the several substances out of this chaos; first, cometh an extream subtil, ardent, AEthereal spirit, then white ones with veins like S. V. then Flegm. Thus far in B. in a cucurbite, then in a retort: Then white fumes, then red ones, and a reddish brown salt remaineth in the bottom, and a Volatile salt will be med about the neck of the retort, as also to the head and sides of the cucurbite. Then purifie every substance by itself; the fixed salt by solutions in the Flegm, filtrations, and congelations, tifi it be perfect pure, clear, and cast no more feces: The volatile salt by often sublimations: The first spirit by thrice disiffling, and the fixed white and red spirit likewise, both together. Now joyn all the three parts, beginning with the fixed salt, whereof take three parts, and one of the fixed spirit; digest eight days, distil in ashes, and the liquor will come off like Flegm. Imbibe with more fixed spirit, and repeat this till all of it be coagulated with the salt. Then put one part of this to three of the , taking it all, and humect them with the volatile spirit. Digest eight days or longer, then distil in a cucurbite; a stinking flegm will rise, and a pure salt m up, and if any spirit distill over, keep it, putting it to the rest of the spirit. Then add more of the fixed salt to it which hath not med, making it one third to the which hu¬mect with spirit as before, circulate and m, and the will be increased. Do thus till all the fixed salt be med. Circulate the remaining volatile spirit with the , till all the spirit be converted into , and nothing but a stinking flegm come away. Then m this salt by itself, till it leave no
-27-
feces, and be most white, transparent, and pure, which will be in four or five times.

Take seven parts of this , and one of pure in leaf, seal it herme¬tically, and digest in B. The matter will become a green , like an emerauld, with an Oriental esclat: (and in a retort will pass all over, leaving a few grains of brownish-gray stiptick earth, like tobacco-pipe earth) And after a while black like ink, and continue so two and fourty days; when the blackness beginneth to wane, put it in dry in an Athanor. It will pass the colours, and become a red Elixir, and is now best for health; but it will not have good ingression into metals, till it have been multiplyed four or five times with new , taking every time after the first, only three to one; and it will be done every time after the first in a shorter space. After every fixation of the multiplication, and the first also, give strong for three days, and a black earth will separate from the red powder, lying like a cake under it. Before you project upon inferious metals, ferment anew with three parts of to one of the Elixir, giving three hours of extream fusion, and all will be red powder.
You may proceed in the same manner for .

Note also, that when the work of is at the white, it will project upon inferiour metals, to make them like , but in truth white , enduring all the tryals of .

I.f you digest in B. V. ten parts of Pearl in Powder, with one of the per¬fect , it will become an Oriental Liquor, whereof a few drops is admira¬ble for health.
-28-
If you take four parts of such , and grind it well with pure red Coral in powder one part, and m, putting what riseth upon as much of fresh Coral, repeating this four or five times, the will be red like a Ruby, and an admirable medicine. AU the Corals will dissolve in a Cellar.
If you grind one part of it with ten parts of green Venice Talc, and put distilled dew upon it, six fingers over, and digest in Fino, all the Talc will dissolve, and a splendid Oyl of rare effects swim upon it.
(Hartman) Sir Kenelm D. said, that a person of quality beyond the Sea (whom he named) wrought this process, and it happened at that time that his wife was dangerously sick, and like to die; she was given over as a dead woman by the ablest physicians: Upon that he opened the ves¬sel, and gave her one grain of the Elixir; whereupon she recovered, and lived many years after it in perfect health.
This process, and Saunter’ s (Is this the French priest who discovered a great secret? HWN) work were together in a small bundle of papers tied up together by itself; upon the out-side of it were written the following words, perfumes, curiosities, my great Arcane of this Note"

And here in The Privy Seal OF Secrets of A U R I F O N T I N A C H Y M I C A is given again the same process on virgin earth although a more suitable place is mentioned for its collection is given, deeper in the earth, nearer to "the good that coucheth beneath" and although the good author did not know how to multiply a more comprehensive explanation forthat operation was given in the previous tract.

THE PRIVY SEAL OF SECRETS
To omit circumstances, the first Matter out of which the Philosophers Stone is to be had and taken, is a subject common and poor in outward appearance, and therefore it is called a little thing, and it is in every Mine, yet is nearer in some things than in others, and in a word in the Mineral Kingdom you must have it, in the most excellent work of the Mineral Hierarchy; therefore not Animals or Vegetals. Know ye then, (although I deny not Raymonds Cannons to be true) that the lively Nature being constrained with the strength of Gold, in the most subtle heat, the Tincture may be made well easily, and in a short time, which will convert all metals into perfect Gold; but the way of the Philosophers in the Universal Work, was out of the Mineral Kingdom; leaving therefore Animals and Vegetals, I will acquaint you with the Universal Subject. Know that all Philosophers affirm, that the Matter is but one thing, and a vile thing which costeth nothing, cast in High-ways and trodden upon, which is the hope of Metals, or a thing containing all things needful for the Work within it self; and albeit curious Wits hold all these to be Aenigma's, yet they are true according to the letter. Briefly, to manifest the truth, you shall know that in all Mines whatsoever there doth lye certain Beds, of a lutinous or clayish substance, under the Earth, which in some places is harder than in others, the deeper the Mine is, the more unctuous is the Clay; and this Clay is the Mother of the Metals, the feeder, of the Mines, for in it lies hid the Spirits, or the three Principles of Metals, (viz) Salt the Body, Sulphur the Soul, and Mercury the Spirit, not common nor running, but a white Vapour which resolves it self into a white Water; I say invisibly in this confused lump of Clay, lies hid the aforesaid Principles.
And this is the true Matter or Subject of the Philosophers, and mark how that it agreeth with that I said before: First, that it is one thing, which yet containeth three; Secondly, that it is a vile thing, and yet is not so, for it is a lump of Clay; Thirdly, that it is so vile and common that Workmen throw it out of their Mines, and tread on it, as a thing of no value: I have seen High-ways paved with it in Hungary, and it is no other in other Countries. And is not this Chaos or confused matter? is not this the hope of Metals? be you judge. I took my Matter in Hungary out of the Mines of Sol, and so I was taught, because more decocted, and riper or hotter Spirits are there, than in any other Mines. Paracelsus out of it wrought his Elixir, but the Philosophers generally took their Matter (which is the same in shew and substance, but not so ripe) out of the Mines of Saturn, and that is their Saturn so often mentioned
-14-

in their Books; not Ore of Saturn, nor Mercury of Saturn but the Sperm, where the Vegetable Spirits are not specificated to Lead, but lye hid in the lutinous lump of Clay.
Now the difference between that which is taken out of the Mine of Sol, and that which is had out of the Mine of Saturn, is this; in Sol the Matter is so prepared, you shall have need of but one Putrefaction, but in that taken out of the Mine of Saturn, you must have three Putrefactions, which indeed is the great and universal Work. And thus I have fully and plainly revealed the Matter, the Work is easie, viz.
The Practice.
Take this lutinous Clay out of Sol or Saturn, (for the working in either the Preparation is alike) I say, take that which is most clammy or unctuous, and when you gather it, keep it from the Air, as close as you can in a glass or Earthen Vessel, for it will (which I have admired) in an instant indurate and harden: But put it in a Glass Vessel, and in that digest it being well stopped in B.M. or in a Blind Head which is better; but let three parts of the Vessel be empty, and let the heat of your Balneum be such as you may easily hold your hand in it. Some Philosophers digested this a Philosophical month, which is six weeks, but then their Matter was not fresh; for if it be fresh, then fifteen or twenty days is sufficient. After Digestion alter the head, and distill, and you shall have the Philosophers Oyl; which being come, pour it on the Matter again, and this till you have so much Vinegar as will swim four fingers over the Matter; then let it stand twenty-four hours, and it will be tinged yellow; pour that gently off, and distill away your Vinegar till it come to a gummy substance; then pour this Vinegar on the Matter again, and it will be tinged yellow: distill and reiterate this until your Vinegar be no more tinged yellow, then hath it sucked out all the Spirits out of the Clay: then from the yellow Liquor distill away all the Vinegar, and you shall have a gummy substance like Saccarum Saturn: digest this two days, then distill away all the Flegm in Balneo, then let it cool, and put it in a Retort, with a great Receiver well luted to it as can be; put it into an Ash Furnace, and distill it again, and by degrees you shall have all your Receiver become as white as Milk, which is crude Mercury of Philosophers, or the Virgin Milk: continue Distillation, and a bloud red Oyl shall ascend, which is Sulphur of Philosophers incombustible and unctuous: continue till no more will come over, with so violent a heat for twelve hours, that you do almost melt the Glass; then let it cool, and take off that Receiver, and stop it up very close: break the Retort, and the Feces will be as black as
-15-

Pitch, and hard, which grind small on a Marble, then Reverberate it in an Earthen Calcining-pan, close covered for three days, (but make not the Matter red-hot) and lay it two fingers thick in the Pan: then take it out, and either with your Vinegar rectified from its Feces, or with Rainwater distilled, I have tried and found it being well Reverberated, that it will take up the Salt, held the Vinegar the best and most proper; digest it therefore with Vinegar twenty hours, then filter and distill it in B.M. till it dry; dissolve it again in that Vinegar, but first rectifie it: let it settle, philter and distill, and reiterate until the Salt be Crystalline and white, then put it in a white glass Body, pour thereon this red Oyl which is the Sulphur, and also the white Water which is incorporated therewith: lute on close and well a Blind Head, and digest in Balneo three days and it will be all one thing or pap: but then distill away all the humidity that will arise, and then put it in an Egg-glass with a short neck, nip it up without heating the Matter, let the Egg be but a fourth part full.
This is the gross Conjunction and Preparation, without adding any more than Natures proportion: put the Glass in an Athanor, in a gentle heat, and the Matter shall dissolve, putrifie, and perform all the Work by vertue of Count Trevisan's Fire, which is the Spirit ever working within the Glass, beginning visibly before the Matter begins to putrifie, for these it continually ascends and descends until Congelation. Be not too curious, only pray to God, and he will direct your Work, and bring it to a period, which I judge to be sixteen months, a bloud-red Powder impalpable in the conclusion of the Work, be patient and you cannot erre. Note, I was never taught to multiply, but by increasing with his own Oyl and Salt, that is, with ten parts Oyl and one of Salt depurated, and so increasing the Medicine you shall bring it as high as you will. I know not any more than this, neither can any more large or more plainly. Serve God, and you cannot erre.
Know also, that you may with this Fire-Stone, which is the red Oyl, and this Salt prepared from the white Water, increase Procipitate of Sol and Mercury, elevated together and then mixed, or upon a subtle Calx of Sol alone, but not so suddenly. The mannor is, to pour on the Calx the red Oyl, till it be like pap; then lute it, and set it in Ashes to circulate in a Circulatory, that if any Mercurial Spirit should remain, it may still arise and not hinder the fixation of the Matter: continue the Fire till it be a dry Powder, then increase more and more, till it be in an Oyline substance fixt, which turns Luna into perfect Sol with great profit. And thus you may increase with the Oyl of Antimony, as I have shewed you.
Fins.

I'd like to state as well that this water as can be gleaned from following the above processes very closely and especially in that of Opus Magnum Ex Viginea Terra that from a scientific point of view the first water to come over after having volitilized the most sublte and fiery parts of our earth namely the niterous parts is said to be much like A.F. that is aqua fort, more commonly know as nitric acid, this beginning precept then of chemistry should be taken aside and separated ideally from the more philosophical and spiritual cannons of alchemy which does not serve too mean that all that is present in this water is a chemical, thats perhaps what a chemist sees but an alchemist sees more not with his mind per se as he might have been taught to view the world but with his heart. From this point then we can see how chemistry began to become despoused from alchemy for sophists have also always despised of thinking of the world in a spiritual sense and have avoided following all works of nature and science back to their originator, that is the creator of the universe, God almighty
but also gives a prime example of how the work of an alchemist was in actuality the progenitor of modern day chemistry especially in the field of organic chemistry and acids and bases, for instance historically the production of nitric acid can be traced back like I said to the work of alchemists ; "It was again described by Albert the Great in the 13th century and by Ramon Lull, who prepared it by heating niter and clay and called it "eau forte" (aqua fortis).[13]

Glauber devised the process still used today to obtain it, namely by heating niter with strong sulfuric acid. Its true nature was determined by Lavoisier in (1776), when he showed that it contained oxygen, whilst in 1785 Henry Cavendish determined its constitution and showed that it could be synthesized by passing a stream of electric sparks through moist air.[13]...according to wikipedia on nitric acid article.

And on the last point by running a stream of electric sparks through moist air, we are in effect performing the same operation that occurs during a thunderstorm as rain and moist air is electrified through lightning discharges in the sky producing that familiar ozone smell,.... the breath of god. And from this point I shall procede for the same is further verified as well in the Golden Chain of Homer on the experiment on rainwater, for the same spiritual aqua forte is created during a thunderstorm....

" Now let us examine this Universal Sperm, or regenerated Chaotic water by Chemical Anatomy. Take a quantity of Dew, Rain, Snow or Hail, which you like; but the most expeditious way is if you take Rain water from a thundershower, receive it into clean glazed earthen Vessels, and filter it in order to separate the dirt from it which intermixes from the Roofs of Houses, and you will after filtration, have a clear crystalline water, of no particular taste, in fact a fine clear water, fit to be used like any other water.
Place this collected water in a warm garret, where neither Sun nor Moon can shine upon it, cover the Vessels with a Linen Cloth, to prevent the dust getting into it.
Let it stand a month unmoved, and if the place is warm enough, you will by this time perceive an alteration in the water, because this water begins by the power of the implanted fire or spirit grow warm although imperceptibly and to break; it begins to ferment and putrefy and acquires a bad smell, and you will observe that it becomes turbid, although it was perfectly clear at first, and a brown spongy earth ascends swimming at the top, which increases daily and from its weight falls to the bottom.
Here you see a separation, occasioned by the ingrafted spirit of the gross from the subtil.
The separated earth is brown, spongy or like wool slimy and slippery, and this slimy earth is the Universal Gur of Nature.
Here the Artists may observe two things viz. water and earth, which conceal fire and air.
Here the air animated by the fire is extended in the water. Now you have two passive Elements water and earth. In the beginning you had only a volatile water but by a gentle putrefaction in a warm place you have manifested the earth also. Fire and air we must look for in another way.
When you see now your Rain water in that state of putrefaction that the slimy Earth is separated and falls to the bottom. then stir it up with a clean wooden handle.

Separation and Distillation
Now pour your troubled water and earth in that state of putrefaction into a large Glass Body, which place in an earthenware pot, fixed into a charcoal distilling furnace, apply a large alembic and receiver and light your fire, which keep so gentle that only the stream or vapours arise. Let this all come over first as a pure water, which contains animated air, that is air and fire. Distil no more of the very volatile water over; than what will go with the gentlest degree of Heat, whilst the Subject in the body only vapours away but must not be suffered to boil, in this manner you vapour over about the fourth part of the whole, or less.
Take the receiver off with this very volatile water, this water the more so, if you afterwards rectify it per se over a steam bath is more luminous and clearer than common distilled water, which is a proof that it contains much air and fire.
Now apply another receiver and continue the distillation, raising your heat sufficiently, so as to cause the thickish water in the Glass Body to boil and in this manner you must distil all the water over, which will appear like water and in drops in the Alembic; continue the distillation until it remains in the body like melted Honey and looks Brown, but beware of distilling until it remains dry, because you would burn the young and tender Virgin earth in the bottom of the Vessel, which is not yet fixt. Take the distilled water away and put it by as the Element water.
The Honey-like Matter, or the moist earth remaining in the Glass body, take out cleanly and put it into a china basin and set it in the Sun to evaporate until it is perfectly dry; then grind it in a Glass Mortar to a subtil earth. Now you have separated the Elements out of your Chaos.
Now it remains to be proved that they are truly Elements or else it must be false what I have written, that all sublunary subjects proceed from them.

To generate Minerals
Take your dried earth put it into a glass Body and humect it a little with a few drops of your Dist: water, but not with the Element air and fire, and put the Body in a warm room facing the South, but let not the Sun's Rays shine upon the Body; after your earth is dry, humect or imbibe it again with the Element water. then set it to dry, and this humecting and drying you may repeat several times every day and continue so doing during the whole Summer, and you can mineralise the whole Earth. You will find by your inbibitions and exsiccations, that the Earth becomes more ponderous and sandy.
NB. the Glass Body must be covered with paper only to keep the dust out, as there must be left access of air. As soon as you perceive that the earth is become sandy, you may know that it is mineralised, this sandy earth is neither Animal nor Vegetable, consequently Mineral. If you have a few ounces of this earth, try it as Glauber tries the sun containing Sands and you will find a grain or two of sun and moon.
."

As I have explained elsewhere this is how the sand(silica) in clay is created from this dry watery gur through the agency of an aerial niter, moisture and air. This earthly matrix then of heavenly origins becomes the mother of metals in the mines of the earth, for through putrefaction and sagnation arsenic and sulfur are born which give rise to marcasites and arsenopyrites, polymorphs which are then cooked into other metals in the bowels of the earth.

Hi Leo,

thank you for this nice summarizing post.

I am curious, what is your take on the animal kingdom part of: Die goldene Kette Homers.

Rueb

The most important philosophy to take away from the animal and vegetable sections of Aurea Catena Homeri is this,.....that niter and salt are the first corporal emanations of the spiritus mundi and that they exist in all things, alchemists search the three kingdoms for that is most subtle and can stand fast in any fire or what is left when a matter is burnt or putrefyed, because in the first place it is the only thing in it that was permanent. In the plant kingdom the permanent salt that is left after calcination is potassium carbonate. Thus we seek through art to make a permanent water but in all accounts regardless of where we take our menstruums from we still need the element of earth, i.e. a mineral,... to make it permanent and perfect all four elements must be present and equally balanced. Take for evidense this section: "Whatsoever is intended to cause fertility must be saline or nitreous. or it can be no manour. All Animals are nitreous or Saline, as by their Chemical Anatomy, by distillation, we find they contain a certain quantity of volatile, and some a fixt salt and a stinking oil or sulphur. The fixt salt appears, when we calcine the ashes. That this animal oil is a liquid salt is proved by its inflammation, because it burns, and nothing can burn but what is either nitreeous, or sulphureous. The fixt salt and fixt earth cannot burn. We have a still stronger proof in the phosphorous made out of animal salts.
That the Animal department is very nitreous is proved by the Saltpetre - boilers in Germany, who dig up the floors of Stables and Cow-houses in the country, such as have been abandoned, and by boiling such an earth, they find it very rich of nitre.
The same is done on old forsaken burying grounds, and they find such an earth, if it has but laid long enough, very rich of nitre; which are sufficient proofs that the animal department is nitreeous, and that animal substances are reduced into nitre; and where into a Concrete is reduced, from that very principle it has its origin, and this Resolution and Mutation is performed bid the Archaeous of Nature, or Universal spirit in the air."

So likewise when animal urine is left to putrefy it becomes by itself a stinking, corrosive menstruum for the niter and salt, in this case phosphorus have come foward, now when this menstruum acts to dissolve the subtle parts of a well chosen earth, we will again engender our buttery gur or universal sperm. As is expositioned here:

"We see plainly, that, if we wish to separate the firmly united mineral and metallic Bodies, we are obliged to make use of Saline and nitreous Menstrums, without which they cannot be opened, and that every menstrum is either saline, nitreous, or mercurial, every good chemist knows. Therefore as the minerals meet and dissolve in a saline menstruum it is evident that they must possess a nature which is congenial to Salt or nitre, or they could not be conquered thereby; thus they can be resolved into a Saline or nitreous Nature, therefore such is also their first origin.
After having dissolved a Metallic Body in a Saline Menstruum, if you evaporate your Solution to a third part, the solution will shoot into a salt or vitriol, which vitriol by distillation and cohobation becomes an vinegar, ponderous spirit or oil from or out of which they proceed at first; because all minerals and metals proceed originally and are generated from an acid, fermented, putrefied nitre and salt, which dissolve a suitable Earth and from vitriol, sulphur, marcasite, metal; which is done by a gradual fixation and nourishment by the original nitreous and saline spirits thus as they were generated by an acid, fermented spiritual nitre and salt, they are resolved by them and brought back to their First Matter.

Mercury




Now for further detail here is a treatise on the philosophers stone that best explifies how we can begin with animal alchemy to produce a menstruum that creates the universal sperm by its action on the very vessel it is placed in, it was the method whereby my first success came with the GW path, for our putrefaction vessel is a common clay piss pot, or a hole dug in clay whereby as the GW is converted into a menstruum it begins to act on the most subtle parts of the clay and produces a vitriolic salt that shoots outward, that is decocted into a soft butyraceous Gur , but just for information although there is much virtue in animal menstruums I have since left the animal kingdom in search of more subtle, yet powerful, less specified, more spiritual and universal ones.


From Potpurri Alchemica I
PROCESSUS SINGULARIS DE MATERIA CHAOTICA
by:
MARTTINI de DELLE
A man fron ltilana born in the tovn of Vitry.
A true and venerable Adept and an F.R.C.


At the very first storm of the yearr collect the rain which
falls from heaven, before it touches the earth, in big retorts
lute them well set, them in the sun to putrefy the water and leave
the glasses there until worms begin to grow in them. Then distill
it until it, becomes as clear as crystal. Thereafter pour the water
into clean phials lute them well and keep them in a cold place.
On precisely this day, after the storm, when the sky is clear,
(about dawn), you should also dig a hole out in the open air in a
ditch of white or red clay or loam. Thereupon, moisten the sides
of the hole with the urine of a boy and immediately cover its opening
with straw and leaves. Do not cover it too thickly but merely
to prevent anything impure from falling into it. Permit the sun to
shine upon it during the day and the moon at night; also allow the
air to penetrate it. The following morning you must, return to the
hole before sunrise and you will see some white salts on its walls.
CarefuIly gather this into a clean phial ( vessel ) with a glass rod
or spoon. Continue doing this until you have a good quantity of
this. Now seal the phial and keep it in a cool place.
The salt which you have thus obtained is dissolved with the
preserved, distilled, thunder water which has been filtered. The
-r03-
moisture is allowed to evaporate again to a salt in evaporat,ion
bowl-s or dishes. The dissolutions and evaporations are continued
until no more feces are left at the bottom of the dish.
Thereafter put this pure salt into a high glass bowlr cover i t
well and bury it in the earth. The salt will resolve into a wheylike
water which will attract to itself the power of heaven and
earth. Following this pour this thick water into a clean phial,
Lute it, and put it, temporarily in a cold place-
Now put part of the purpura Solrs or crocus Solds (purple or
yellow gold HWN) into a phial. Pour upon it six (6) parts of the
wheyish water, immediately lute a blind alembic on the opening and
set the glass in a vapour bath in the first degree of the lamp-fire.
In so doing, make sure that the lamp never goes out until the matter
has gone from blackness to whiteness. After this remove the
glass from the Balneum and set it in a slightly heated ash-cupel.
Give the second degree of the lamp-fire until the desired end is
achieved and you will see an eclipse of the Sun (GoId), starting
with a fire in a glass in a furnace. After that. Cauda Povonis, (or:
peacock's TaiI), and finally the supreme whiteness, and at the end,
the most perfect redness. All this happens of it. by a f ire
in a glass- Quod sone Sophfstus incredible videtur, (tnat which
indeed seems incredible to the Sophists HWN).
When now this matter has become dark red, you must take it out,
weigh it, pulverize it on a marble, put it into another phiaI, pour
upon it twice its weight of the wheyish water. Then lute a blind
alembic upon it, set the glass back in the vapour bath and continue
to proceed as according to the prescription- This will cause the
matter to multiply ten fold each time. This work can be repeated
-104-
Thus with this wheyish dry watery gur that we make, we cause the death of gold and transform it into a more pure subtle and spiritual body and further multiple it with more dry water .

Clay in the mines in Hungary is "hotter" for therein is a higher concentration of spirts of niter, sulphur and arsenic. And through these agents and there action on the clay, our sperm/gur is already halfway decocted and requires less putrefaction.

All it takes is patience, and constant warmth to provide the right environment for putrefaction to occur and not disturbing the glass and you can see the birth of a virgin earth in just about any water, it begins by manifesting itself on the surface where there is air left to join to and then sinks to the bottom under its own weight, eventually if you do not open your container to receive more air, no more earth will be generated and you will see that a vacuum will have been created in your jar, for all water especially that that has passed through the atmosphere including snow has fire in it, but more especially thunderstorm/rain water, however the niter in the air will only manifest itself in darkness or at night otherwise the beams of the sun roast it off as with being of an subtle ammoniacal spirit is highly volatile. That is why the salt that shoots in the clay hole must be collected before sunrise, otherwise it will be deprived of this niterous spirit.

Anton Josef Kirchweger was a doctor in Gmunden, that is in Austria in fact I am from Austria myself. Gmunden is about 200+ km from my position. Hungary boarder about 80km (1 hour).

What is quite interesting is that Hungary is known for their totally flat lands. You can hardly see a mountain in the horizon. (highest mountain or rather hill = 1014 meters)

Also Slovenia (30km) is known for their red earth rich in iron (Terra Rossa). Some excellent vineyards plant their grapevine there.

Along the same lines then both Patrice Partimian and Patrick Riverie from this french documentary on alchemy video series that I linked to months ago http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x92...icisme-13_tech practice both at least initially a path similar to that of the Mutus Liber, where dew is collected at dawn and put to putrefy along with a suitable earth, in Patrice's case, this suitable earth is peat while Patrick seems to form an actual virgin earth like the above tract from the Golden Chain of Homer that gives the thunderstorm water experiment and the formation of a virgin sand, and while both of those might be fulfilling to the treatises in a number of different ways, they both require extra long putrefaction periods, however IMO there is no need to wait so long for nature has already done half the decoction for us, so IMO the most proper suitable earth is that which I beilieve is depicted in the Mutus Liber, the little pinkish old man pulling water out of his folds is none other than are most treasured and vile matter, our old Saturn, our burning clay.
http://www.alchemywebsite.com/images/mutusliber05.jpg

http://www.alchemywebsite.com/images/mutusliber07.jpg

Although in Patrick Riviere's case, he procedes with this septic virgin earth by doing as I am sure he infered from the Mutus Liber pictograms and divided it into two portions one which he sets to absorb sol through a mirror and the other portion which he set to absorbs rays of the moon:http://www.alchemywebsite.com/images/mutusliber12.jpg
, thus very similiar to Opus Magmun Ex Virgina Terra : "Take reddish rich Virgin earth in , impregnate it with sun (symbol for sun) and moon(symbol for luna), serene and dew, till the end of May: Then imbibe sprinklingly with dew gathered in May, and dry in , expose all night to the and Air, securing it from Rain" He then takes each one individually as this pictogram illustrates and distills them with solar heat:http://www.alchemywebsite.com/images/mutusliber14.jpg
, which should neccessarily use a magnifing glass focused on the distillation vessel to give adequate heat and distills them to get a fatty red salt from the one imbibed by the sun and a white fatty salt from the one imbibed by the moon, these salts he then uses as agents of spiritual purification which he casts on the dragon little by little (which I believe to be arseneopyrite) in his dry fusion path of the last video in which he produces the green vitriol.

Is the sun emitting a mystery particle? By Ian O'Neill

"When probing the deepest reaches of the Cosmos or magnifying our understanding of the quantum world, a whole host of mysteries present themselves. This is to be expected when pushing our knowledge of the Universe to the limit.

But what if a well-known — and apparently constant — characteristic of matter starts behaving mysteriously?

This is exactly what has been noticed in recent years; the decay rates of radioactive elements are changing. This is especially mysterious as we are talking about elements with "constant" decay rates — these values aren't supposed to change, school textbooks teach us this from an early age.

This is the conclusion that researchers from Stanford and Purdue University have arrived at, but the only explanation they have is even weirder than the phenomenon itself: the sun might be emitting a previously unknown particle that is meddling with the decay rates of matter. Or, at the very least, we are seeing some new physics.

Many fields of science depend on measuring constant decay rates. For example, to accurately date ancient artifacts, archaeologists measure the quantity of carbon-14 found inside organic samples at dig sites. This is a technique known as carbon dating.

Carbon-14 has a very defined half-life of 5730 years, i.e., it takes 5730 years for half of a sample of carbon-14 to radioactively decay into stable nitrogen-14. Through spectroscopic analysis of the ancient organic sample, by finding out what proportion of carbon-14 remains, we can accurately calculate how old it is.

But as you can see, carbon dating makes one huge assumption: radioactive decay rates remain constant and always have been constant. If this new finding is proven to be correct, even if the impact is small, it will throw the science community into a spin.

Interestingly, researchers at Purdue first noticed something awry when they were using radioactive samples for random number generation. Each decay event occurs randomly (hence the white noise you'd hear from a Geiger counter), so radioactive samples provide a non-biased random number generator.

However, when they compared their measurements with other scientists' work, the values of the published decay rates were not the same. In fact, after further research they found that not only were they not constant, but they'd vary with the seasons. Decay rates would slightly decrease during the summer and increase during the winter.

Experimental error and environmental conditions have all been ruled out — the decay rates are changing throughout the year in a predictable pattern. And there seems to be only one answer.

As the Earth is closer to the sun during the winter months in the Northern Hemisphere (our planet's orbit is slightly eccentric, or elongated), could the sun be influencing decay rates?

In another moment of weirdness, Purdue nuclear engineer Jere Jenkins noticed an inexplicable drop in the decay rate of manganese-54 when he was testing it one night in 2006. It so happened that this drop occurred just over a day before a large flare erupted on the sun.

Did the sun somehow "communicate" with the manganese-54 sample?(my answer, yeah kinda ) If it did, something from the sun would have had to travel through the Earth (as the sample was on the far side of our planet from the sun at the time) unhindered.

The sun link was made even stronger when Peter Sturrock, Stanford professor emeritus of applied physics, suggested that the Purdue scientists look for other recurring patterns in decay rates. As an expert of the inner workings of the sun, Sturrock had a hunch that solar neutrinos might hold the key to this mystery.

Sure enough, the researchers noticed the decay rates vary repeatedly every 33 days — a period of time that matches the rotational period of the core of the sun. The solar core is the source of solar neutrinos.

It may all sound rather circumstantial, but these threads of evidence appear to lead to a common source of the radioactive decay rate variation. But there's a huge problem with speculation that solar neutrinos could impact decay rates on Earth: neutrinos aren't supposed to work like that.

Neutrinos, born from the nuclear processes in the core of the sun, are ghostly particles. They can literally pass through the Earth unhindered as they so weakly interacting. How could such a quantum welterweight have any measurable impact on radioactive samples in the lab?

In short, nobody knows.

If neutrinos are the culprits, it means we are falling terribly short of understanding the true nature of these subatomic particles. But if (and this is a big if) neutrinos aren't to blame, is the sun generating an as-yet to be discovered particle?

If either case is true, we'll have to go back and re-write those textbooks."

...they should have re-wrote them years ago....

Hi Leo,

I congratulate you for your expertise in alchemy.

is it possible with simple distilled water previously irradiated with solar and lunar rays to obtain virgin earth?


I really would like to have your opinion about this matter below:

He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion” (Jeremiah 10:12).

Abstract:
In this paper the firmament (raqiya) that was divinely made on Day Two is held to extend throughout space as a universal macrocosm expanse of lattice structure consisting of charged subatomic particles. These particles formed the structure that would later stabilize the universal arrangement of stellar bodies and various atomic elements. Recent analysis of astronomical polarization data demonstrates that the universe has an optical axis, and the universe appears to behave in a similar way as a crystal with optical activity.


Simultaneously, in order to focus the benefit of universal radiation, the firmament is held to be localized as a thin microcosm complex of crystalline structure suspended directly above Earth; this structure consisted of strong magnetic flux lines holding hydrogen, water molecules and possibly various metallic colloids in its force field. Water in Earth’s spherical mass was utilized in its solid form in making the localized crystalline firmament, and was simultaneously distributed throughout space in its various molecular forms in the establishing of the firmament as a universal expanse. Earth’s local crystalline canopy in its physical design would uniquely absorb and transfer the radiation of the stellar bodies that were later placed in the universal expanse. These stellar bodies were made to be an orchestrated symphony of mass, energy and radiation, specifically designed to benefit planet Earth and its inhabitants.

Introduction:
Writing in Nature, secular author Colin Russell announced the unexpected research discovery that “Science is deeply indebted to Christianity” for scientifically consistent concepts involved in its basic tenets.[1] In keeping with reliance on the Scriptures and attendant reports in the scientific literature, this research paper is offered.


The Biblical statement in the introduction of the Creation Event affirms that God spoke, and the universal energies were materialized, “And God said, Let there be light, and there was light.”[2] “For he spake, and it was done: he commanded, and it stood fast.”[3] Physical laboratory experiments have now demonstrated that sound, in the presence of water, can materialize full spectral light.[4]


Observing that the Biblical record describes the watery Earth as the first entity created in the space-time dimension (shamayim) on Day One, the planet would be central in the mind and purpose of the Creator, and would uniquely benefit from the universal design. It logically follows that stellar bodies made later in the Creation Week would be structured with energies that bathed the universe, and specifically benefited planet Earth. We should give attention to the subtle, but definitive, distinctions in the Hebrew meanings of the words “create” (bara), “make” (asah), “form” (yatsar), and “establish” (k/quwn). To this end the firmament is seen as a major construct in the efforts of the Creator.

Hebrew Definition of Raqiya:
Various Commentaries and Study Bibles represent the firmament as simply the expanse of space and the heavens. However, the Hebrew word raqiya (translated “firmament”), while including the dimension of space, requires a structural crystalline lattice in its literal definition. Strong’s Hebrew and Chaldee Dictionary:


7549. raqiya, from 7554; an expanse, i.e. the firmament or (apparently) visible arch of the sky: - firmament.[5]


7554. raqa, a primary root; to pound the earth (as a sign of passion); by analogy to expand (by hammering); by implication to overlay (with thin sheets of metal); - beat, make broad, spread abroad (forth, over, out, into plates), stamp, stretch.[6]


Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament:


Raqia, Firmament. Literally “an expansion of plates,” i.e. broad plates, beaten out.[7]


Of significance is the passage in Job 37:18: “Hast thou with him spread out the sky (Hebrew, shachaq), which is strong, and as a molten (Hebrew, yatsaq) looking glass?” Strong’s Hebrew and Chaldee Dictionary:


7834. shachaq, from 7829; thinness.[8]


7829. shachepheth, a primary root; to emaciate, i.e. make (become) thin.[9]


3332. yatsaq, a primary root; to pour out; by implication, to melt or cast as metal;

by extension, to place firmly, to stiffen or grow hard: - cast, cleave fast, be

(as) firm, grow, be hard, lay out, molten, overflow, pour (out), run out, set

down, steadfast.[10]

Ancient Firmament Concepts:
The Jewish historian Josephus gave a concise description of the Hebrew conception of the firmament: “After this, on the second day, He placed the heavens over the whole world, and separated it from the other parts; and determined that it should stand by itself. He also placed a crystalline firmament around it, and put together in a manner agreeable to the earth, and fitted it for giving moisture and rain, and for affording the advantage of dews.”[11]


The Hebrew Targums and Rabbinic Literature offer further details: “And God made the firmament, its thickness being three fingers between the limits of the heavens and the waters of the ocean.”[12]


The Hebrew Midrash Rabbah sheds further light: “And God said: ‘Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters.’ It is written, ‘Who roofs Thine upper chambers with water, or Who layest the beams of Thine upper chambers in the waters’…When the Holy One, blessed be He, ordered, ‘Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters,’ the middle layer of water solidified, and the nether heavens and the uppermost heavens were formed.”[13] In this passage we have the Jewish distinction between the “solidified firmament” (in which energies would be received to bathe Earth) separating the “nether- heavens” (in which the birds would fly under the firmamental canopy), and the “uppermost heavens” (in which stellar bodies would be placed). Scripture holds to three (and only three) “heavens” (2 Corinthians 12:2).


Egyptian, Greek, and Roman ideas erroneously envision a “vault” in which the celestial bodies were located.[14] In contradistinction, the Hebrew concept refers to the Earth (Josephus), the crystalline firmament (Josephus, Targums, and Midrash), and the expanded heavens (Josephus, Targums, and Midrash) as being distinctive entities, yet each interrelated and each containing water from the first day of creation. Of notable distinction was the crystalline firmament whose structure would benefit the Earth by stimulating the production of moisture and heavy dews (dews that sometimes condensed as light rain).


It is interesting to note that a parallel representation of these three distinct entities in Hebrew literature is found in Ezekiel’s vision of Heaven. The first distinction is that of the stretched-out crystalline firmament upon the heads of the living creature(s): “”And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature[s] was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads” (Ezekiel 1:22).


The second distinction is that of the abode where the worshipping creatures resided: “And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies” (Ezekiel 1:23). A description involving acoustical effects is attributed to the crystalline firmament above the heads of the worshippers: “And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings” (Ezekiel 1:25).


The third distinctive is that of the expanse above the crystalline firmament – the expanse in which God’s throne was suspended: “And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it” (Ezekiel 1:26).


Ezekiel’s summation of the visual effects involving the three distinctives is found in Chapter 10, verse 1: “Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the head[s] of the cherubim there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne” (Ezekiel 10:1). It is possible that the radiation from the throne in the expanse was transferred through the crystalline firmament, visually and acoustically affecting the worshippers below.[15]


Scientific Feasibility of Canopy Model:


Our discussions here will encompass the universal expanse and the canopy above the Earth, both entailed in the Hebrew use of raqiya.

FIRMAMENT AS THE UNIVERSAL EXPANSE…
The definition of raqiya and the Hebrew concept of its substance involve the total expanse of the heavens. In keeping with this concept, the expanse of space fabric and the mass within its construct are, in fact, now perceived by astrophysicists to be an all-encompassing cosmic web. Science reports that “[R]esearchers now realize that [the stars] are embedded in a filamentary structure of matter both dark and visible, called the cosmic web…Galaxies are distributed not randomly but along the tendrils of the cosmic web.”[16] “The universe is permeated by a network of filaments, sheets, and knots collectively forming a ‘cosmic web.’ ”[17]


Actually, the vacuum of space is not empty, but is a seething sea of virtual particles.[18] The space vacuum influences the atom,[19] and the expanse is a “single seamless whole.”[20] In this expanse of influencing energies a consistent structure has emerged:


Carl David Anderson discovered in 1932 a particle, having the positive charge of the proton, and the mass of the electron. The particle, named the positron, is therefore a “sister-particle” of the electron: both particles have equal masses and equally opposed electric charges which can neutralize each other.


Anderson’s experiments showed also, that when a gamma-ray energy amount, or quantum, of no less than 1.02 million electron volts (1.02 MeV) is absorbed in any point of space, a free electron and a free positron emerge out of this point.


Inversely, when a free electron meets a free positron, the two nuclear particles may disappear in a point of space, out of which will then emerge two (at least) gamma-ray quanta, of combined energy equal to 1.02 MeV.[21]


Physicist M. Simhony of Hebrew University has introduced a very insightful thesis. In keeping with these physical observations and measurements, Professor Simhony has calculated an electron-positron lattice permeating the entire fabric of space.[22] This lattice pairing of subatomic particles in space is illustrated by the positive-negative atomic lattice pairing of charges in the Sodium Chloride Crystal.[23] Physicist Dietmar Rothe has enlarged on Simhony’s original thesis, and has suggested the lattice pairing to be more like 10,000 times farther apart than originally estimated, due to the bare charge of an electron being “masked” by its induction in the vacuum. This makes the electron-positron lattice essentially transparent to the passage of nuclei and electrons of ordinary objects as they move through space.[24]


Further corroboration of the crystalline structure of space has been provided by the research of Borge Nodland and John Ralston, and has been reported in at lease three peer-review scientific journals:

“In 1997, Borge Nodland and John Ralston found in their analysis of astronomical polarization data that the universe had an optical axis: it was circularly birefringent. The universe appeared to behave in a similar way as a crystal with optical activity: it rotated the polarization direction of linearly polarized light. This cosmic ‘quartz crystal’ had an optical axis parallel to the direction Aquila-Earth-Sextans.”

Nodland, B., and J.P. Ralston, “Indication of anisotropy in electromagnetic propagation over cosmological distances” Physical Review Letters, 78:3043-3046, April 21, 1997.

Universe's Optical Axis of Rotation

The universe might be behaving like a birefringent crystal in which light moving in one direction behaves differently from light traveling in another direction.

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ______________

“The team made the finding by studying the polarization (orientation of electric fields) of radio waves from 160 distant galaxies as measured in previous experiments by astronomers around the world. Nodland and Ralston found that the plane of polarization of the light rotates like a corkscrew as the light travels through space, and that the orientation of the universal axis that they’ve discovered is key to the amount of rotation. The rotation of polarization depends on the angle at which the light moves relative to the axis and on the distance the light travels before being measured. The effect is crudely analogous to that of a crystal that twists light depending on the direction light is traveling through the crystal. … The data indicate that light actually travels through space at two slightly different speeds.”

“All Space is Not Equal: Physicists Find Axis that Gives the Universe Orientation,” University of Rochester News, April 17, 1997.

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _______________

“Surprisingly, we [Borge Nodland of the University of Rochester, NY, and John P. Ralston of the University of Kansas] found that a wave’s polarization plane undergoes an additional rotation that is very different from Faraday rotation. The amazing thing is that the new rotation depends on the direction the wave moves through space. This is reminiscent of how a birefringent –or electromagnetically anisotropic- crystal changes the polarization plane of light passing through it in a way that depends on the direction the light travels through the crystal.…

Since the new rotation we find has such a systematic directional dependence, it is implausible that it is generated by cosmic ions and field via some mechanism similar to the Faraday effect. One may therefore surmise that it is the vacuum itself that flaunts a form of electromagnetic birefringence, or anisotropy – similar to the birefringence exhibited by many crystals.”

So space itself is essentially occupied by a crystalline lattice of subatomic particles, and transports light as a crystal with optical activity, thereby meeting the “expanse” definition of raqiya. This lattice supports the “tendrils of the cosmic web” and provides orientation for the physical components of the universe. As would then be anticipated, “…All of the masses, charges, and other properties of subatomic particles arise from a uniform chorus of violins playing a symphony of different notes.”[25] “…As if by a chain, our planet’s surface is connected intimately with the space environment.”[26] Scripture anticipated this universal interconnectedness in Hosea 2:21,22: “And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear saith the Lord, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth; And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil, and they shall hear Jezreel.”

FIRMAMENT AS THE LOCALIZED CRYSTALLINE CANOPY…
Earth’s Magnetic Field Necessary to Suspend the Canopy. On the first day of creation the Spirit of God moved (or fluttered) upon the face of Earth’s spherical waters. Water molecules are designed to function in random motion under normal conditions; however, these molecules can be constrained to align if sufficient energy is imposed upon them. In turn, the small magnetic field of each molecule is shared with the total magnetic moment of the water volume, temporarily generating a field of large moment corresponding to the sum total of the individual magnetic fields (the actual physical agent primarily contributing to this field of energy would be the hydrogen nuclei[27]). In modern science this is known as the “magnetic domain theory.”


Depending on the volume of water, an independent magnetic field of significant moment would be produced over the watery planet.[28] In the process, copious amounts of free oxygen and free hydrogen in gaseous form would be released above the surface of the waters, due to the effect of electrolysis.[29] These free gases would naturally collect in the flux lines of force in Earth’s newly-generated magnetic field. Astrophysicists have actually discovered a wall of hydrogen gases around the Earth and around the Solar System.[30]


Upon cessation of the fluttering activities of the Spirit of God, the water molecules would naturally return to their designed random motions. The powerful magnetic field suspended through, and above, the watery Earth would begin its natural decay, unless a mechanism was put in place to maintain its moment of electromagnetic energy. The crystalline canopy (attended by Earth’s stabilizing core that was established on the third day) provided just such a mechanism.


Crystalline Candidate # 1: Canopy as Metastable Hydrogen Lattice.


It is assumed that hydrogen and oxygen (atomic elements in the vast volume of water created on the first day) were the primary, and perhaps exclusive, elements the Creator used to make the firmament on the second day [See also 2 Peter 3:5]. If this assumption is correct, we must at least consider the possibility that a thin, metastable, superconductive lattice of hydrogen (interlaminated within thin layers of ice in the flux lines of Earth’s magnetic field) might have comprised the crystalline canopy of Genesis, chapter one.


Free hydrogen is usually understood to be a gas, but it is specifically listed as a metal at the top of the Periodic Table of Elements (Group 1A – Alkali Metals). Metastable hydrogen has been discussed among physicists as theoretically holding the potential to maintain its crystalline metallic structure following the metastacizing process.[31] This potential is illustrated similar to diamond carbon atoms maintaining their crystalline structure after extreme pressures and high energies have been released.


Laboratory experiments have confirmed that, even in tiny amounts, solid hydrogen becomes superconductive.[32] A superconductive material levitates when suspended in the flux lines of a magnetic field.[33] In most of the physical experiments with metallic hydrogen performed to date, extremely cold temperatures are required. However, “pressurized hydrogen would become a superconductor and remain one even under temperatures as high as…200 degrees Kelvin (minus 73 degrees Celsius).[34] In 1979 Mao and Peter M. Bell created the first solid hydrogen at room temperature by raising a sample to a pressure of 57 kilobars [equals 57,000 atmospheres of pressure].[35] Such extreme pressures would be impractical in the structuring of Earth’s crystalline canopy; however, this difficulty could be overcome if the magnetic flux lines were extremely intense.


Under specialized conditions pressure and magnetic intensity are interchangeable: “Pressure has the same units as energy…the two should be equated.”[36] It is to be remembered that “[o]ne tesla (T) is 10,000 gauss (G). Earth’s magnetic field is about 0.5 G [on the surface].”[37] “…[T]he interplanetary magnetic field has the value of 5 nT.”[38] “A magnetic field exerts pressure on the material producing it. At 100 T, the pressure [would be] in the range of 100,000 atmospheres or nearly 1.5 million pounds per square inch.”[39] So, in theory at least, the calculations permit intense energies equating with extreme pressures, and a solid metallic hydrogen canopy remains a considered option.


The Creator certainly possesses the potential to perform such a feat, if that were His desire. However, additional physical procedures not suggested in the Genesis text (or the Rabbinical literature) would conceivably be required. Additionally, such a metastable canopy would be difficult, but not impossible, to collapse at the time of the Genesis Flood.


Crystalline Candidate# 2: Canopy as Phase VII Ice.


To properly understand the unique relationship between water and a magnetic field we turn to a work published by Harvard University Press. “Hydrogen nuclei in water molecules reorient themselves in an external magnetic field as the strength of the field is altered.”[40] In research with water and an imposed magnetic field “five energy states were discovered.”[41]


A Nature editorial staff writer explains that

Ice Phase VI transforms to Ice Phase VII at around 22,000 atmospheres. Ice VII is really hot ice: you can heat it to well above 2120 F without melting it, provided that the pressure is stepped up, too. Release the pressure and Ice VII melts.[42]
With Ice VII…as the oxygen atoms get squeezed closer together and the hydrogen bonds between them get shorter, the hydrogen atoms …eventually take up residence exactly midway between the two oxygens…Hydrogen here is bonded equally to two oxygen atoms…[a] hydrogen-centered state.[43]


Water can form a glass…if melted and then cooled rapidly.[44]


It is evident that Ice Phase VII, being hydrogen-centered, would meet the physical requirements of Earth’s suspended canopy.

Crystalline Candidate # 3: Canopy as H2O2 Solid.
Nature reported that chemists

[F]ound that oxygen and hydrogen carefully pressurized in a diamond anvil container to 76,000 atmospheres at room temperature resisted explosive condensation into droplets of water.


Instead, the gaseous molecules appeared to cluster quietly into a 14-atom compound containing three molecules of oxygen and four molecules of hydrogen… [T]he spectroscopic measurements made of the pressurized oxygen-hydrogen mixture “are almost identical” to those of the separate elements in solid form.[45]

As discussed previously, the extreme pressures required could be compensated by intense magnetic energies. This candidate, too, remains an option.

Crystalline Candidate # 4: Canopy as “Warm Ice”.
Chemists at Korea’s National University trapped microscopic layers of water between two layers of a conductive material (gold in this instance) with an energy source equal to the spark generated by taking off a wool sweater. The water molecules froze to a crystalline solid at room temperature. At a critical gap distance – as small as the height of two water molecules – the field coerces the water molecules into the regimented alignment of a solid.[46]


Assuming that additional atomic elements were generated from water on the first day of creation, various thin layers of conductive materials would be available to use within the flux lines of the magnetic field. The gaseous elements of water were readily available from the electrolysis event. A canopy of “warm ice” is a feasible candidate.


Crystalline Candidate # 5: Canopy “Interlaminated” or “Filmed-coated” with Additional Chemical Elements.


Professor Edward Boudreau of Louisiana State University has demonstrated from the technical literature that, with appropriate energy, pressure, and radiation gradients, all the elements known to science can be transmuted from water by nucleosynthesis.[47]


This opens the possibility that additional elements could have been transmuted when the “Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” on the first day of creation. These additional elements were later brought to the surface of the earth-bound waters on the third day in causing the dry land to appear. Attendant to this thesis are the publications in the secular literature showing that all the natural elements can by transmuted from the energies resident in light.[48] [49]


An appropriate selection of these elements could have been used by the Creator to interlaminate with hydrogen and oxygen in the canopy lattice on the second day. Such “doping” would dramatically raise the temperatures necessary to keep the structural lattice intact, as well as correspondingly reduce the electromagnetic energy necessary to maintain the structure. Laboratory physicists report that dispersing non-superconducting elements in a superconducting material greatly increases levitation.[50] [51]


The non-superconducting elements create what are called pinning centers that channel, or pin, the magnetic flux at the surface of a superconductor. …With flux pinning, a magnet can be levitated above a superconductor and held in a stable horizontal position…The levitating force can be further increased by clustering a number of the superconducting disks…[52]


Elements as simple as iron on thin layers of nanometer-sized ice particles that occur at altitudes between 82 and 87 kilometers in the high-latitude summer mesosphere[53] clearly verify that thin layers of ice and metallic layers occur in concentrated magnetic flux lines, even today. Other ice cloud layers have been reported at lower altitudes,[54] as close as 11 miles above the Earth.[55]


With this mind it is interesting to note that “cuprates” have offered a feasible explanation to high temperature superconductivity. Doped with thallium, the cuprate HgBa2Ca2Cu3O8 has the highest known superconductivity temperature at atmospheric pressure, 138 K. At high pressure it superconducts up to 164 K.[56] Physicist Hideo Hosono discovered that strontium iron arsenide (SrFe2As2), known as an “iron pnictide,” superconducts not only when doped with cobalt but also when the undoped compound is exposed to water vapor.[57]


Scientific American reports that “a high-temperature superconductor can be configured as a SQUID (a superconducting quantum interference device) using platelike grains of BSCCO ceramic…[A] combination of deformation and thermal processing aligns the grains, laying them flat on top of one another. Electricity proceeds unimpeded from one grain to the next.”[58]


In this category falls the research done with thin films. “Researchers have explored the possibility that the superconducting properties of thin films may be superior… As the thickness of a film is reduced to the nanometer scale, the film’s surface and interface confine the motions of the electrons, leading to the formation of discrete electronic states known as quantum well states… Silver films prepared on certain substrates exhibit enhanced electron-photon coupling.”[59]


Researchers have discovered that graphite nanofibers can store significant amounts of hydrogen. At the molecular level, the fibers consist of graphite disks stacked like dinner plates and connected at their edges by oxygens. The hydrogen diffuses into the space between the plates.[60]


Discussions regarding filming or doping of the crystalline canopy with exotic chemical elements necessarily involves the question of opaque or transparent qualities of the structure, specifically relating to its reception and transfer of radiation from stellar sources. Science News reports that thin films of a gadolinium-magnesium alloy possesses a curious property: When hydrogen diffuses into the material, the shiny reflective metal turns as clear as a piece of glass. A thin layer of liquid potassium hydroxide covering the alloy sends hydrogen to the metal and takes it back in response to changes in voltage.[61]


This concept offers numerous attractive features as a crystalline canopy candidate.


Crystalline Candidate # 6: Canopy incorporated with Molecular Catalyst.


A novel water tape consisting of fused cyclic water pentameters has been observed in a supramolecular compound. The researchers grew crystals of bpedo (a molecular catalyst) in an aqueous solution, a molecule that readily forms hydrogen bonds. The water structures interacted with the bpedo to extend the structure in a three-dimensional lattice.[62]


This research opens possible areas of identification with the crystalline canopy.


Crystalline Candidate # 7: Canopy incorporated with Super Atoms.


It is to be remembered that the definition for raqiya involves “thinness.” Working with very small nanostructures of substances like gold, carbon or aluminum, often in conjunction with hydrogen, researchers observed that small numbers of atoms often form structures as symmetrical, and almost as intricate, as snowflakes. When assemblages of specks made of a few million atoms or less, properties often began to change.


A material such as silicon, which is usually brittle, can become as ductile as gold.[63] Additionally, a team created an intricate cluster with precisely 102 gold atoms. To this were added sulfur-based molecules called thiols, which bind easily to gold. What resulted was a supermolecule with a core of 79 gold atoms arranged into a truncated decahedron. Around the core, more gold atoms formed an unusual pattern, joining the thiols. Electrons properly orbited the atoms; however, more electrons orbited the cluster as if it were a single atom.[64] The structure had been anticipated earlier as a crystalline solid.[65]


These, and other, thin atomic superstructures may well have been used by the Creator in the formation of Earth’s unique canopy. Universal radiation assimilated by the canopy would indeed be tailored for specific benefits to the inhabitants of the Earth.


Any, or all, of the foregoing candidates would meet the technical requirements for the local crystalline canopy in the Hebrew definition of raqiya.


BENEFITS TO PLANET EARTH…


Recharging the EMF. The crystalline canopy suspended within the flux lines of energy approximately ten miles above Earth’s surface offers the solution to a major problem regarding our planet’s magnetic field. Living systems depend on the energy of this magnetic field; it affects everything from molecules to man.[66] In view of the fact that cosmic energy squeezes and strengthens the EMF, and sends electrons toward the poles,[67] an appropriate recharging of its energy would sustain its optimal moment. Short-wave radiation would be assimilated into the charging mechanism, while mid-range and long-wave spectra would be transferred through the canopy to the benefit of systems below. The crystalline canopy provides the mechanism to perennially sustain the field. Physical evidence indicates that our EMF was ten times as powerful in the past.[68] Having lost the recharging mechanism at the time of the Flood, our EMF is now left to natural decay.[69] [70]


Other models, including the “vapor canopy” model, offer no sustaining mechanism for the field. The “expanse firmament” also leaves the field to its natural decay from creation to the present time, with depleting events enhancing the decay at the time of the Genesis Flood. Both “vapor canopy” and “expanse firmament” postures essentially mandate that the Creator wrote decay of the magnetic field into the creation event. This is inconsistent with the Genesis description of man being created to live forever and the promise of Earth’s inhabitants living forever on the restored planet.


Filtration of most UV radiation. Radiation at the longer UV wavelengths of 320-400 nm, designated as UV-A, play a helpful and essential role in the formation of Vitamin D by the skin, but is harmful in extended exposure. Radiation at shorter wavelengths of 290-320 nm, designated as UV-B, causes DNA damage at the molecular level. Overexposure to UV radiation can change the flowering times of some kinds of plants and thereby will affect the animals that depend on them.[71]


UV-B radiation strips oxygen of an electron, and thereby causes the formation of free radicals. These harmful free radicals affect the entire food chain, and are assimilated directly into the blood stream, thus compromising living systems and their longevity.[72] The appropriate construction of the crystalline canopy would control this radiation and provide designed benefit.


Enhancement of signals from Starlight. The physical features of the crystalline canopy would give the structure potential as a photomultiplier. In the photomultiplier, dopants or impurities are denser than ordinary IR-sensitive material. More impurities mean electrons move more freely from ion to ion. The higher the field, the higher the probability of an electron ionizing another pair, setting off an avalanche until a single electron has set in motion 50,000 or more additional electrons. Using this effect in exploring the heavens, astronomers have detected galaxies in the deepest regions of space.[73] Since the crystalline canopy would have a rather rigid structure, a problem of lens focusing has been anticipated. However, the eye of the trilobite created on Day Five possessed a fixed internal crystalline “optical-doublet” structure that corrected focusing problems, both near and far.[74]


One can readily reflect on the visual effects in viewing the night sky under the crystalline structure. The canopy would be dominated with a magenta hue, due to the amount of energized hydrogen in its makeup. This magenta filter would render the stars, and other heavenly bodies, viewable in their myriad colors. The stretched-out heavens were actually somewhat closer to Earth from creation to the time of the Flood, and they were expanded further out in space during the year-long deluge.[75] So, in the original creation the galaxies and their motions in the deepest heavens would be seen and appreciated. Closer to Earth, planets in their orbits could be seen as “waltzes” against the starry background.[76]


Influence of Magenta Light on Plants. The spectrum of magenta light produced by the energizing of hydrogen has a significant effect on plants and switching of their growth genes.[77] The use of a magenta cover over greenhouses often induces more than 30% additional growth for various plants.


Radio frequencies transferred through Canopy. Radio receivers are composed of a crystal, an antenna, and a magnetic field tuned to specific frequencies. Water can be structured to function as an antenna. All these components can be found incorporated in the crystalline firmament. The pulsars and the planets often emit actual acoustical energies transferred by radiofrequencies that could be enhanced by the canopy. Radiofrequencies beneficially interact with living systems,[78] and coherent music specifically encourages the growth of plants.[79]


Discoveries in carbon nanotube radio structures made by physicist Alex Zettl and his colleagues at the University of California, Berkley, were reported in mainstream scientific literature.[80] The team found that carbon nanotubes measuring approximately 500 nanometers long and 10 nanometers wide could be directly grown by a technique called chemical vapor deposition, in which layers of carbon precipitated out of ionized gas. Astoundingly, the tiny structures performed all four essential functions of a radio: an antenna that picks up the electromagnetic signal; a tuner that selects the desired frequency; an amplifier that increases the strength of the signal; and a demodulator that separates the informational signal from the carrier wave on which it is transmitted.[81] Potential for carbon atoms to be incorporated in the crystalline canopy were discussed in candidates #5 and #7 of this paper (pp. 9, 10 & 11).


Sound Amplification. Research by a group of French physicists has produced a saser - a device that amplifies sound the way lasers amplify light. Attached to one end of a cold glass rod are piezoelectric crystals. These crystals emit a sound vibration when an electric current flows through them. Phonons (sound quanta) travel through the rod, hit excited atoms and force the atoms to release phonons of their own. The phonons multiply and the sound is intensified.[82] The physical parameters of the canopy hold such potential.


It is of interest to note that Scripture refers to “the morning stars singing together.”[83] Modern research has determined that the entire universe is in “vibratory song.”[84] Technical researcher David Lines has demonstrated that the physical parameters of the crystalline canopy held the essential components of a radio receiver.[85] It is possible to envision the appropriate alignment of the canopy’s components for a brief time each morning, since these components are capable of transferring radio signals from space. Such brief alignment could actually play the music of stellar bodies.


Optimal use of EMF by Living Systems. Proper cell division is primary in the optimal function of living systems, and this delicate procedure is synchronized by Earth’s EMF.[86] Dysfunction of this precision-based procedure spells certain death. All life, including the human body, is under the influence of this field.[87] Additional paramagnetic application encourages growth with systems such as plants in their contact with naturally occurring magnetic substances, such as soils. Researcher Malcolm Beck has demonstrated significantly enhanced plant growth with the use of such soils.[88]


In support of the importance of the sustained electromagnetic field under discussion, it has been further demonstrated that cells in plants communicate with electric signals.[89] In fact, all cells receive electrical signals from the outside world and other cells.[90]


Enhancement of Atmospheric Pressure. After the Flood the Earth expanded in diameter during the days of Peleg.[91] This expansion was due to the continued disruption of radioactive elements in the planet’s structured interior.[92] In an attempt to determine Earth’s original size, environmental engineer Neal Teague has calculated the planet’s original diameter to be approximately 90% of its current measurement.[93] The total mass would remain the same; however, the planet’s volume was originally 10% to 12% smaller. This would render greater gravitational attraction of the atmospheric gases at sea level, and would increase the absolute atmospheric pressure to approximately 28 psi, compared to today’s 14.7 psi.[94]


Higher ratios of oxygen[95] and carbon dioxide[96] in the enhanced atmospheric pressure further multiplied the benefits under these optimal conditions. Hyperbaric oxygen specialist William Fife (Texas A & M University, A.P. Beutel Health Center) has run extensive laboratory experiments using two atmospheres of pressure. Applying appropriate oxygen under these conditions, the entire blood plasma is quickly saturated with oxygen.[97] [98] National Geographic reports the phenomenal overnight healing of an aquanaut who cut his hand during long-term exposure to elevated atmospheric pressure and elevated oxygen.[99] Living under these conditions human beings would receive adequate oxygen supply to the fetal brain, providing retention of all 200 billion brain cells that are genetically produced during fetal development. Each living human would thus be provided with normal functioning abilities, as well as the phenomenal gifts of the savant.


Elevation of oxygen ratio, and its saturation in a fluid medium, explains the large size of some insects in the fossil record.[100] This further solves the long-standing dinosaur mystery of their small lungs being able to sustain tremendous bulk sizes.[101] Due to the effects of Boyles Law, the water table was saturated with free oxygen. Anaerobic bacteria would not thrive under these conditions, and marine life could grow to gargantuan sizes, such as those found in the fossil record.


Research physicist Sherwood Idso has found that plants, when enriched with more CO2, “grow bigger and better, much like the plants of past geological epochs of biological prominence...[T]he efficiency with which plants use water to produce organic matter, essentially doubles with a doubling of the atmospheric CO2 concentration. Moreover, for a tripling of the amount of CO2 in the air, it nearly triples!”[102] Researcher Suan-Chin Wong grew cotton plants under normal ambient partial pressure of CO2, and under enriched partial pressure of CO2. Thirty-five days after planting, the total dry weights of high CO2-grown plants were 2 to 3.5 fold greater than plants grown in normal ambient CO2.[103]


We are only now beginning to realize a measure of the orchestration involved in the universal creation event. Interdependence among all forms of life is now recognized as common in nature.[104] One contextual benefit would be the natural healing of the human body.[105] Global traditions of a primordial paradise persist to this day.[106]


MECHANISM FOR THE FLOOD…


We have seen that the crystalline canopy existing from the creation event until the time of the global Flood sustained living systems in an optimal environment. Disruption of this designed structure would require extraordinary forces. We now consider the two greatest natural forces at hand as instruments in the mechanism for the Flood. These two forces are: thermonuclear reactions and moving water.


The Scripture states that God uttered His voice, and the earth melted.[107] This brings into play the first great natural force: thermonuclear reaction. Geophysicists are fully aware of the potential for such reactions to produce global disruption.[108] They are also aware of the evidence that the Pangean crust was ruptured.[109] A plausible candidate as a trigger mechanism in disrupting Earth’s internal aligned nuclear elements is the interaction of simple water molecules, acted upon by microwave radiation. Vast reservoirs of water have existed, and some still exist, deep within Earth’s structure.[110] If God used microwave radiation of sufficient intensity in bodies of water, vast amounts of radioactive elements would be jostled from their aligned positions, and the Earth would melt in designated areas while cracking at the surface like a giant eggshell.[111] This is due to the specific nature of microwaves,[112] and the unique response of the water molecule to such radiation.[113]


This brings into play the second great natural force: moving water. Calculations have been made, demonstrating that major disruption of the “fountains of the great deep” below Earth’s granite crust would send jets of steamy water ten to seventy miles high.[114] These jets of steam would be sufficient to rip the canopy and open “windows” in its crystalline lattice, collapsing its structure in the forty-day timeline given in Scripture.[115] The greater volume of water, however, would be expunged from the internal “fountains of the great deep,” along with vast deposits of internal elements. This eruption of elements and water continued for 150 days, providing material and mechanism for the global sedimentary deposits.[116]


Once the rupture of the “fountains of the great deep” provided sufficient water to cover the globe, a mechanism to spread out the expunged material into the omnipresent near-horizontal sedimentary layers was already available. Newton’s mechanism of gravitational attraction produces worldwide semi-diurnal lunar tidal waves that could move these sediments into the layers we see exposed in canyons and roadcuts. Professors M.E. Clark and Henry Voss have modeled these mechanisms using computer simulations, and demonstrated their feasibility in flume experiments.[117] [118] The persistent nature of these tidal waves, acting twice a day over the year long Genesis Flood, would account for most of the sedimentary layers; post-Flood activity could account for the remainder of what is seen. Secular publications corroborate that most of the sedimentary deposits are rapid events.[119] Many of these sedimentary deposits, such as the “Austin Chalk” (dubbed “Cretaceous” by the evolutionary community) are intercontinental, essentially global, in extent.[120]


To accentuate the volatile nature of the sequence, earth-altering geological events took place during the building of the massive deposits. Often tectonic superplumes occurred as mid-deposit eruptions.[121] Massive fossil extinctions took place at the time of intermittent lava plumes.[122] As the source of the great volume of once-living creatures deposited during this year long episode, the pre-Flood biosphere was capable of supplying the complete fossil record.[123] As confirmation of sufficient amounts of available water, 70% of our planet’s surface is covered by some 326 million cubic miles of liquid water, enough to submerge a perfectly smooth and spherical Earth to a depth of 8,500 feet (over 1.6 miles).[124]

RESOLUTION OF OBJECTIONS…
Objections have been raised by well-intentioned individuals, alleging that there is no real need to include a crystalline canopy in the creation model. This researcher holds that the total composite meaning of the Hebrew word for “firmament” must be included in any serious formulation of a creation model. Not to include a mechanism for maintaining the strength of the magnetic field as a long-term function is tantamount to blaming the Creator for shortsightedness in His designs.


Others have suggested that the expanse of space and the starry heavens encompass the total meaning of “firmament.” Hebrew language and the declaration of Hebrew scholars closer to the creation event show a concerted view that includes a crystalline canopy, as well as a heavenly expanse.


One objection involves the “setting” of the stars in the firmament. The Hebrew word for “set” is nathan, which means “to add and to yield.” The stellar bodies were certainly set in the space of the heavenly expanse and yielded their radiation from the moment of their creation. But it is also true that the radiation from those stellar bodies upon reaching Earth was “photomultiplied” in the crystalline canopy. This permitted Earth-bound viewers to appreciate the creation spectra emanating from our Solar System, and from deep space.


It has been proposed that a crystalline canopy could not hold together due to the brittle nature of ice, its primary constituent. This paper has emphasized that the lamination features of the canopy were extremely thin in their construct. The Hebrew rabbinical literature refers to the crystalline canopy as being “three fingers thick,” approximately two inches. Technical references have also been cited, showing that brittle metals, when properly “doped” with selected chemical elements, can be quite flexible.[125]


Another objection centers on a mechanism to hold the crystalline firmament in place. References cited in this paper list various thin ice cloud formations observed to be currently suspended over Earth, mostly near the polar regions where the EMF is concentrated in stronger flux lines. Some of these ice formations actually hold metallic elements, such as iron, in suspension with thin ice clouds. Emphasis is placed on the strength of the magnetic field which could readily hold such a thin canopy in place, especially if superconducting qualities were listed among the materials used.


A final objection refers to the fact that solid metallic hydrogen is opaque, therefore the planet’s inhabitants would not be able to see the stars through such a structure. Solid metallic hydrogen is, as alleged, opaque, and must be held under extreme pressures (or extreme energy). This paper holds that if the Creator did indeed make a metastable hydrogen canopy, the nanometer-thin hydrogen sheet would be interlaminated with the ice crystals in a photomultiplier construct. Starlight would be readily transferred to the view of inhabitants below. One reference cited in this paper demonstrates opaque alloys becoming transparent when hydrogen is added to the thin matrix.[126]

Conclusion:
Reference has been made to the Biblical text and Hebrew literature as requiring a crystalline canopy, in addition to the expanse of the heavens, during the second day of the Creation Week. Seven viable physical candidates have been introduced to demonstrate the plausibility of such a canopy. “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.”[127] Only the Creator knows the specific details involved in the creation, but it is a gratifying pursuit to “think God’s thoughts after Him.”

Hi Leo,

I congratulate you for your expertise in alchemy.

is it possible with simple distilled water previously irradiated with solar and lunar rays to obtain virgin earth?



Dan

Yes but I caution you to pay attention to this bit that I previously quoted:
"It is a natural and philosophical Axiom "Non transire posse abuno Extremo ad alterum absque medio," -- that is: It is impossible to proceed from one Extream to another Extream without a Medium. This Axiom every Artist ought to mind, thousands err because they do not observe this Truth.
Fire cannot become water without air, and earth cannot become air without water . If you would unite fire, as being extreamly volatile and subtil, with the earth, which is corporeal and fixt, you will never be able to do it; because the most Volatile will forsake the fixt and return to its Chaos. This is so in all Natural Things, that the most Volatile principle, cannot unite with the most fixt without its proper medium. An Artist ought to observe this constantly that he may not lose his time, his Matter, and Expenses.

Therefore if you want to unite Heaven or fire with the earth, or convert fire into earth, unite it first with its nearest volatile medium and they will unite immediately, when that is done, give them the water, as a medium between air and earth, and they will also unite; then add the earth, and thus you may unite fire with earth and fix it therein; and so vice versa turn the earth into water with water, then convert it into air, and the air into fire by means of air."

Thus the nearest volatile medium to fire is air, and for water to be insipitated by fire it must first be converted into air, for as liquid water it is too dense and the fire will never penetrate it through to its essence,(Non transire posse abuno Extremo ad alterum absque medio) but by converting it into a vapor it is more fit to receive fire and fire is more apt to be slowed and cooled by it and converted into earth. And when this vapor condenses back into water it now carries fire in its soul, and soon after putrefaction a virgin earth is born. So vulgar heat is needed to convert water into vapor(air), so that the fire(our true elemental fire) that is created from the stiring of the aether by the celestial bodies is insipitated into the vapor, this is how our celestial dew gains weight and falls back down to earth, in its soul it carries an androgyne: part fire, part water but also a third thing, part earth, and so it is a volatile earth, because it is newly born. And when the water is evaporated away, the salt of the earth remains, a subtle niter . However if they not be separated of meddled with and they be allowed to putrefy and cohabitate together then the volatile earth will day by day become more and more fixed and a slimy, spongy , earth, or universal sperm be born.


For me the firmament is not a physical thing of this world, it stands three fingers breath between the waters and the heavens because it is a domain of the "thin" world, a place invisible to us and so we do not know we swim in it or are aware of it anymore than a fish realizes it is in water, it operates on the physics of other dimensions yet it is always right here next to us, we are only allowed to see the shadows it casts upon Plato's cave, the earth floats upon it and receives sustanance through it from God. It is, in a way, a kind of crystalline aether in which communication happens instantaneously, which is the mechanism of how the mangesese-54 reacted at the moment the core of the sun turned, because neutrinos are the nearest matter to it, and they move through it instantaneously because they are in effect the product of the movement of the aether. Victorian era scientists all beleived in the existance of the aether. Mathmaticians Paul Dirac and James Maxwell Clerk pre-supposed the existance of it mathematically, Dirac through antimatter and Clerk through longitudinal waves, it lays the basis for all observed quantum phenomenon, faster than light communication between cooper pairs and bose-einstien condensates, superconductivity, quantum tunnelling and more. Nikola Tesla did the first real work on producing the movement of the aether locally and harnessing its power, and proved that a surplus of power could be created by using a little to stir it, and as soon as surplus was achieved it could not only power itself but also continue to provide a surplus, in effect "free energy" was born , which violates the stupid "laws" of physics, I know but of which, more and more are broken every day, so who are the ignorant ones, the alchemists or the scientists? However I do believe the Egyptians had this technolgy as well, there is sufficient evidence to suggest they understood radiant energy well enough to harness it and there are evidences of the kind high voltage apparatus it would have took to utilize it on carvings of temple walls. Tesla's succesor Thomas Moray wrote a book entitled A Sea of Energy on which the Earth Floats and harnessed the power of the aether by tuning into the frequency of its movement or oscilation he did so with improvised radio equipment and a tuner made of silica sand fused by lightning strikes, which he called Swedish Stone and so it does not suprise me that crystallized sand created by lightning which is also a product of the stiring of the aether would cause the crystalline matrix of the fused sand to mirror that of the aether and communicate with it, and draw power from it, because it is already "tuned" to it.
But the aether also reacts in ways less mechanistic and in ways more spiritual and philsophical, for instance mans mind is also tuned to it and more than any other created being he can bend it to his will, you don't realize it yet but every action ,every observation is you interacting with the aether to some extent, it forms your very perception of reality and with it you can create any reality you wish. This is why a scientist can never truly observe phenomenon objectionably or without becoming part of the experiment himself. He is forever tied to his manipulations of experiments to separate himself from this effect and that of quantum uncertainty and through all his mental masturbations he comes to no avail because he never realizes his place in the cosmos...it is this ... that he is the experiment. The manipulation of matter through alchemy is to the end that the philosopher proves to himself through experiments and the mastery of the four elements that all of reality is merely dust and air and the only thing permanent in it is his immortal soul. Which if he comes to this realization before his physcial death, he will have transcended death and his spiritual body will have transfigured his physical body, as the Chrystos, the stone, he will then have eaten from the Tree of Life and become also as a God. To which end perhaps he will be granted his own creation and his own universe to play with as he wishes.....

Here is another path, this one of The Book of Abraham the Jew proceding from the beginning like the others by imbibing clay (marcz) with dew and producing our dry water/ alkahest by manipulation of the four elements in them to produce the universal sperm and using it to revert gold back to its first matter proceding through all its color changes and become the philosophers stone.


http://www.rexresearch.com/abrelzar/pl1.gif


Now hereto must you have a clean virgin Marcz, and such imbibe with dew as follows. When the time comes, that all begins to grow green and becomes a beautiful meadow, full of flowers, when the heaven is pure and clear, and the open air is full of lovely odours is swelling, pretty drops steams; very easily, when the Sol rises, make 2 or 3 round holes knee deep; the grass and turf with the flowers place on the side, the earth take out, the holes with other earth fill again full, and place the turf again thereon, in order that the mat or meadow ground get no damage, so have you the virgin Marcz. The red and yellow Marcz(see bottom note). The red and yellow Marcz particularly, which out of the vineyard is very precious thereto; also when you take them out of the hole they must be taken knee deep, in order that they be free from all roots, 24 hundred weight. That they however be not stoney, let such on the Mat lie spread out in order that the stars can therein work. This Marcz set 14 days and nights lie in clear and bright weather, should however rain come, cover such with thin wood strips or straw. When the 14 days and nights are over, and the Marcz is thoroughly seasoned, so let the Marcz be carried away in wooden vessels, and well covered. After this take a great cask, and make in such of straw and wood a grate; and lay such below in the cask, and thereon a quantity of Marcz; pour thereon dew, or Rain-water, taken from a thunder shower is very good, leave it 24 so standing, then make below on the cask a hole and fit a bung therein. And through it let the Water trickle down, till it all falls down. Pour again a fresh warm Water thereon, after 24 hours let it again run off. In the same manner proceed also with the remaining Marcz; and then pour such clean Water into a copper kettle, till it be quite full, and lay on such three parts and seethe down; pour the kettle, seethe it down again, till on the third part, and thus continue 10 or 12 times, when now at last all is seethed down, and the third part is yet in the kettle, so pour in another clean kettle, set it into cold sand some days so will a Salt crystallize. This take thereout and preserve well in a clean vessel, the remaining leave again to boil down to the half, set it down again and let it crystallize till all is crystallized; then continue. On this Salt pour clean dew, in order that it will dissolve. Then filter it and coagulate it so often, till it is pure and crystallized and prepared, so have you the right Salt Marcz, which in the Sea of the World hovers and is concealed, without which nothing can be engendered and born, and also have you the fruit bringing Salt and the prima Materialis Universal Marcz prepared and primam materiam of the old Wine.


Figure 1

Take of this Salt 32 shekels heavy put it in a clean vessel of Acures, rub it small, mix among that of its own Marcz, wherefrom the Salt has been lixiviated, which before heat thoroughly, mix it with the Salt amongst each other and imbibe it with dew or Rain water, place the vessel in the Sun and when it is dry, again, again imbibe, and so continue, in order that the Spiritus Aeris Universal may yet more frequently insinuate itself therein for scarce 4 weeks, then make balls thereof, with this, fill such a Vessel.


Figure 2

Fill this half full, so of good material burnt, lay this in an oven, and another great vessel attach thereto, in which you before put 2 measures of distilled dew Spirit is poured, lute this well, and distill through Algir Fire heruo termon, humor, Algir, a Spiritum and Salt volatile, thereof you have the flying spirit; thus continue with fresh Materia, till you have from such a salt driven all the volatile Spirit. Now you must take this Volatile Spirit and put it in such a Vessel as is here represented (Figure 3).


Figure 3

This is prepared from Acures, and place such a head thereon with a long nozzle, place the vessel in a Kettle, with Water Balnum Maria, and distill carefully all the Phlegm over, afterwards take it out; when it is cold and place the Vessel in an Alembic with sand filled up, and distill the Spirit over, this repeat, for his wings fail him yet, therefore, you must distill per se, 7 times, till it is as pure as the tears from the Eye, at the 7th time it give it its Salt Volatile in order that with it, it may rise, or lift it a part. Give finally strong Fire so will fly the flying Serpent, and mount up in white flowers, take this and let it once again rise, till it has become pure and transparent, and preserve it well.

Then take all the matter remaining behind in the vessel, whereof the Spirit is driven, and bruise small, and pour distilled dew or Rain water thereon, and extract a Salt thereof; This purify so often till it becomes as beautiful and clean and transparent as a diamond; so have you the Serpent without Wings. Take care however, that you lose sight of nothing in the work, in order that the Pondus of Nature may fully remain. Take the fixed Salt, rub it small, and put it in a long glass vessel of Acures (Figure 4).


Figure 4









Pour the Spiritus and your Volatile Salt thereon and shut the vessel well in order that nothing thereof may fly, sit it in a mild warmth, so will the flying dissolve the fixed, and join; the flying serpent will eat the fixed one, and will out of both become a fiery creeping dragon; Here you have the Quintuum Essentiam and the blessing, which God the Lord laid in the Marcz; which is of the dew of heaven and of the fatness of the earth. Gen. 27 V. 28, 29; and the life of all things which are created. This liquor is sweeter than sugar.

In order that you my dear brethren may also further know what you should do with this blessed liquor, mark this.

Take of Ophiris Sol 1 shekel heavy, make it into thin leaves, put it into such a little glass and pour 4 shekels heavy of this noble liquor thereon (Figure 5)


Figure 5

Place the little glass in mild warmth, so will the Sol dissolve mildly to a high yellow liquor, and a grey Earth will precipitate to the bottom therefrom. Then separate your clear solution in such a vessel that three parts of the same remain empty, therein place your Liquor, and place it, in the Name of God in the secret Oven (Figure 6).


Figure 6

And give it a soft Fire Algir, which should be a B.M., vapouring heat for 40 days and nights, till all has gone to Putrefaction, and become black, which the ancients have called the Crows head; then place it into the Ashes and give strong Algir, so that the Fire is so strong as the Sun, when it is at its highest; so will appear the wonder of Nature, wit all its colours, like to a peacocks tail, then strengthen the Algir, yet that it does not kindle, and appears after 40 days to the white, the Moon light, and enters Diana in her snow white glittering smock. Give it yet 40 days and nights in the 4th grade of Fire. Here must your vessel be concealed in the ashes, when it has stood in this Grade for 40 or 50 days, so will the red Lion appear and come to pass, like a carbuncle, yet like a yolk of an egg will again separate itself. This is now the right Quintessence of which a little piece thrown on Saturn, pierces it through, and makes it Sol, for it is pure Tincture.

Dear brethren you shall also know, that when you dissolve Sol with this heavenly liquor, it is a strong medicine for all infirmities of the body, and as your needs require, you make mankind wise, because the strength of the body, it strengthens, and removes mankind from all need. You shall, however, dear brethren, know of all things, that this Universal Liquor, before you alloy with Asophel, must be made metallic and effective, so to say, as the first effect to the metallic Tincture is in two ways; first with Mercury Vive purified, which through the liquor, also becomes a Water, for it has been in the beginning nothing other than a Salt Water, and this is the right key when explained, and so place the faeces themselves, for as we proceed, as the Author teaches.


red and yellow marcz -" This is what happens with iron and gold which are bound by a close affinity. When Mexican prospectors come to discover a sandy, very red earth composed mostly of iron oxide, they conclude that gold is not very far away. Consequently they regard this red earth as the matrix and the mother of gold, and the best indication of a nearby gold vein. This fact seems rather unusual, given the physical differences of these metals. In the category of common metallic bodies, gold is the rarest among them; iron, by contrast, is certainly the most common, the one that is found everywhere, not only in mines where it forms enormous and numerous deposits but also disseminated on the very surface of the ground. Clay owes to iron its special coloration, sometimes yellow when iron is found divided as a hydrate, sometimes red when it is in the form of sequioxide, a color which is further intensified by baking " Fulcanelli- Dwellings (This intensified color is best exemplified by the appearance of the deep red mexican clay roof tiles manufactured for Spanish style haceindas sometimes these tiles take on a purple metallic patina or stain.) Purple we know is the royal color of gold divided into a certain colloidial state.

Often times when the universal gur of nature does not find a suitable earth to dissolve and form metals or the landscape not becoming to the formation of a mine, it will solidfy into one of the mineraloid gels:

opal:Opal is a mineraloid gel which is deposited at a relatively low temperature and may occur in the fissures of almost any kind of rock, being most commonly found with limonite, sandstone, rhyolite, marl and basalt. The word opal comes from the Latin opalus, by Greek ὀπάλλιος opallios.

The water content is usually between three and ten percent, but can be as high as twenty percent.
Precious opal shows a variable interplay of internal colors and even though it is a mineraloid, it does have an internal structure. At micro scales precious opal is composed of silica spheres some 150 to 300 nm in diameter in a hexagonal or cubic close-packed lattice. These ordered silica spheres produce the internal colors by causing the interference and diffraction of light passing through the microstructure of the opal.... An opal doublet is a thin layer of opal, backed by a swart mineral such as ironstone, basalt, or obsidian.

Dehydration experiments and infrared spectroscopy have shown that most of the H2O in the formula of SiO2·nH2O of opals is present in the familiar form of clusters of molecular water. Isolated water molecules, and silanols, structures such as Si-O-H, generally form a lesser proportion of the total and can reside near the surface or in defects inside the opal.

The structure of low-pressure polymorphs of anhydrous silica consist of frameworks of fully-corner bonded tetrahedra of SiO4.




http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/ad/Nev_opal09.jpg/220px-Nev_opal09.jpg
The color of the alchemists sky or the translucent belly of a live snake, the dry water is very apparent in opal as I have pointed out in boldface above.(- It is, moreover, greenish to the sight, and the same Lully tells you so. Habet colorem lacertae viridis. It looks, saith he, like a green lizard. But the most prevalent colour in it is a certain inexpressible azure, like the body of heaven in a clear day. It looks in truth like the belly of a snake, especially near the neck, where the scales have a deep blue tincture; and this is why the philosophers call it their serpent or dragon-John Dee)



When the universal spirit foresakes the vegatable kingdom for the mineral we get the below: the less important mineraloids, with the exception of shilajit which because of its near surface mountain abode is regularly insipitated by night time dew and starry excretions and imbibed by sun and moon.

jet: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/22/Smalll_sample_of_jet.jpg/220px-Smalll_sample_of_jet.jpg
Jet is a geological material and is considered to be a minor gemstone. Jet is not considered a true mineral, but rather a mineraloid as it has an organic origin, being derived from decaying wood under extreme pressure.

The English noun "jet" derives from the French word for the same material: jaiet.[1] Jet is either black or dark brown, but may contain pyrite inclusions[citation needed], which are of brassy color and metallic lustre. The adjective jet-black is better known perhaps than the substance from which the descriptive phrase derives.

pyrobitumen: shilajit -
putrfyed compost of plant and animal material cooked under heat and pressure of mountains on the borders of Pakistan and India and exuded under the hot summer sun as a mineral gel, containing precious metals, long treasure by the Indians for restorative health and longevity. I have written much about it.

Similiarly there are these encountered in other parts of the world only called by different names than Shilajit:
Mumijo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mumijo)-Mumijo (also denoted as mumio) is a thick, sticky tar-like substance with a colour ranging from white to dark brown (the latter is more common), sometimes found in Caucasus mountains, Altai mountains and Tibet mountains.Mumijo is a word of Greek origin. The substance is mentioned in the works of Aristotle and Avicenna as a remedy with antiseptic and general stimulant properties used in Caucasus mountains. Most scientists agree that people observed wounded animals frequenting caves with mumijo and so discovered the substance. Similar substances are used for medicinal purposes throughout Tibet.

Ozokerite (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozokerite)
Ozokerite or ozocerite (Gr. Όζο oze, stench, and κερί kero, wax) is a naturally-occurring odoriferous mineral wax or paraffin found in many localities
Specimens have been obtained from Scotland, Northumberland and Wales, as well as from about thirty different countries. Of these occurrences the ozokerite of the island (now peninsula) of Cheleken, near Turkmenbashi, parts of the Himalayas in India and the deposits of Utah in the US, deserve mention, though the last-named have been largely worked out. The sole sources of commercial supply are in Galicia, at Boryslaw, Dzwiniacz and Starunia, though the mineral is found at other points on both flanks of the Carpathians.

Ozokerite deposits are believed to have originated in much the same way as mineral veins, the slow evaporation and oxidation of petroleum having resulted in the deposition of its dissolved paraffin in the fissures and crevices previously occupied by the liquid. As found native, ozokerite varies from a very soft wax to a black mass as hard as gypsum.

Yes, opal should be one of the easiest minerals to replicate.
I'm working on this process right now, but it takes a lot of time for the
water to evaporate down to a level that leaves the opal stable without
cracking. But I can already notice an opal-like appearance in the flasks.


Today I tried making some jadeite (sodium aluminum silicate).

so after I can produce some nice gemstones, I'll start working on gold.
Remember this:

posted by me under the topic labeled "sand":

This interesting, from the book "Getting Gold" on genesis of metals
and this particular part with oil of sand (silicate of potash):

"But what about the metals? Whence came the metallic gold of our reefs and drifts? What was it originally--a metal or a metallic salt, and if the latter, what was its nature?--chloride, sulphide, or silicate, one, or all three? I incline to the latter hypothesis. All three are known, and the chemical conditions of the period were favorable for their natural production. Assuming that they did exist, the task of accounting for the mode of occurrence of our auriferous quartz lodes is comparatively simple. Chloride of gold is at present day contained in sea water and in some mineral waters, and would have been likely to be more abundant during the Azoic and early Paleozoic period.

Sulphide of gold would have been produced by the action of sulphuretted hydrogen; hence probably our auriferous pyrites lodes, while silicate of gold might have resulted from a combination of gold chlorides with silicic acid, and thus the frequent presence of gold in quartz is accounted for.

A highly interesting and instructive experiment, showing how gold might be, and probably was, deposited in quartz veins, was carried out by Professor Bischof some years ago. He, having prepared a solution of chloride of gold, added thereto a solution of silicate of potash, whereupon, as he states, the yellow colour of the chloride disappeared, and in half an hour the fluid turned blue, and a gelatinous dark-blue precipitate appeared and adhered to the sides of the vessel. In a few days moss-like forms were seen on the surface of the precipitate, presumably approximating to what we know as dendroidal gold--that is, having the appearance of moss, fern, or twigs. After allowing the precipitate to remain undisturbed under water for a month or two a decomposition took place, and in the silicate of gold specks of metallic gold appeared. From this, the Professor argues, and with good show of reason, that as we know now that the origin of our quartz lodes was the silicates contained in certain rocks, it is probable that a natural silicate of gold may be combined with these silicates. If this can be demonstrated, the reason for the almost universal occurrence of gold in quartz is made clear."


Quartz as the ore of gold could be related to a prima materia.
There's the mention of the quartz vase by Schwaller, and then his acquaintance Fulcanelli often refers us to the oak (Quercus).

He, having prepared a solution of chloride of gold, added thereto a solution of silicate of potash, whereupon, as he states, the yellow colour of the chloride disappeared, and in half an hour the fluid turned blue, and a gelatinous dark-blue precipitate appeared and adhered to the sides of the vessel. In a few days moss-like forms were seen on the surface of the precipitate, presumably approximating to what we know as dendroidal gold--that is, having the appearance of moss, fern, or twigs. After allowing the precipitate to remain undisturbed under water for a month or two a decomposition took place, and in the silicate of gold specks of metallic gold appeared. From this, the Professor argues, and with good show of reason, that as we know now that the origin of our quartz lodes was the silicates contained in certain rocks, it is probable that a natural silicate of gold may be combined with these silicates. If this can be demonstrated, the reason for the almost universal occurrence of gold in quartz is made clear."


Quartz as the ore of gold could be related to a prima materia.
There's the mention of the quartz vase by Schwaller, and then his acquaintance Fulcanelli often refers us to the oak (Quercus).

Yes. But there is a great difference between "counterfeiting" gems and
making real ones as they are made in the earth; the same difference as
giving a base metal the "appearance" of gold and a true transmutation.

Yes but by continuing to believe and place sole emphasis on silicon and the periodic table for your prima materia all you will have is a silica gel and glass as counterfeit, and your crystalline lattice will forever be empty of the spiritus mundi, however I was refering to this section from Book 6.....

Chapter VI

"How Gems may be otherwise made."

The manner which I have set down, is peculiar and usual to our artificers, and by them is also accounted a secret. But I will set down another way, which I had determined always to keep secret to myself. For by it are made with less charge, less time, and less labor, much more refulgent, bright, and livelier gems. Whose surfaces and luster, the Salt shall not deface in a much longer time. Although those old counterfeits which are found at Puteoli, in the Mortar of ruined houses, and on the shores, are yet very bright, and of a perfect clearness, so that they seem beyond the imitation of our age. Yet I will endeavor by this way, not only to equal them, but make them much better. Wherefore give ear, and believe. The materials are thus made. Take the comb of a Cock, and cutting his gullet in two, keep the head and neck. Put it into a pot, and set it in a hard fire. Stop it close that no coals or ashes arising with the smoke, or soot, fall in, and spoil the luster of it. When the fire is kindled, you will hear it hiss. When it is red hot, take it up with Iron tongs, and quench it in clear water, and dry it. Do this three times, changing the water, lest there be any filth. Then grind it on a Marble till it be so fine that you may blow it about, and reserve it for use. Thence have you the Philosopher's Stone, most fragrant in fire, and chief in the triplicity. If you are ignorant of the Philosopher's Stone, learn it from these verses, which I found in an old manuscript.

Hi Ghislain.

The cock's comb is marcasite, as Leo has shown.
The Latin is something closer to this:

Arctus = north
hominis = man
sex = six

Arctus is also related to the bear. Remember the Tarasq which has six legs of a bear.


North is man, who consists of six elements
If you add s. in. m, "mutare" is well known
(mutare means change/transmutation,
but also green language for gold metal)
(s. in. m. is the part one has to solve, the abbreviation)
That which will be the mouth of our constant Philosophers stone.

I corrected arctus to artus because where I found this phrase, artus rather than arctus is present the majority of the time, besides arcturus is not the pole star that is polaris, this changes the meaning significantly, artus means limb/limbs(including the male member) elsewhere lumbus(loins,seat of sexual excitement) is used (as a whole the first sentence refers to male genetalia and IMO root of the term "cock").

Solution to riddle:

What he is saying is concealing the subject in an anagram/riddle and the latin phrase he is using is telling you to take the latin word for the male sex organ and that is lumbus and add(adderis) a p. before it in which we get (P)lumbus, then the phrase says "mutare" which means to substitute the S. for an M. in that word ,then in which we get Plumbu(m) philosophicale or philosophical lead, not the vulgar, which by that the philosophers did mean marcasite, which is why he said to take a cocks comb in the first place, as it has often been refered to because of its crystalline formation that resemble the comb of a cock and also a spear when taken individually. Which is why Abraham Eleazar in the Book of The Jew says:"Take our Materium Magnesiam, Plumbum Nigrum, also called Bismuth or Puch(antimony), such as comes from the Hills; 10 or 12 tit; make such an Old One into a fine powder, after you have cleansed all rock from it, and put this powder into several broad Alazabus, place these so that the Luna can shine thereon, and the dew may fall therein, but no sun dare shine thereon, and no rain come thereto, and let it stand thus 4 weeks, you must however move the powder round every day." It was the stone of the philosophers because they understood the nature of the order of generation of metals or the "golden chain" and knew that all metals derived their origin from this "old man" which they knew to be either sulfureous or arsenical marcasites, therefore a universal and not a particular metal, which is why they said "philosophical lead" and not the vulgar.

Aerogels (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aerogel)

Aerogel is a manufactured material with the lowest bulk density of any known porous solid.[1] It is derived from a gel in which the liquid component of the gel has been replaced with a gas. The result is an extremely low-density solid, with a notable effectiveness as a thermal insulator. It is nicknamed frozen smoke,[2] solid smoke, solid air or blue smoke due to its translucent nature and the way light scatters in the material; however, it feels like expanded polystyrene (styrofoam) to the touch.

Aerogel was first created by Samuel Stephens Kistler in 1931, as a result of a bet with Charles Learned over who could replace the liquid in 'jellies' with gas without causing shrinkage.[3][4]
Aerogels are produced by extracting the liquid component of a gel through supercritical drying. This allows the liquid to be slowly drawn off without causing the solid matrix in the gel to collapse from capillary action, as would happen with conventional evaporation. The first aerogels were produced from silica gels.

....impressive load bearing abilities are due to the dendritic microstructure, in which spherical particles of average size 2–5 nm are fused together into clusters. These clusters form a three-dimensional highly porous structure of almost fractal chains, with pores just under 100 nm...

...Due to its hygroscopic nature, aerogel feels dry and acts as a strong desiccant. Persons handling aerogel for extended periods should wear gloves to prevent the appearance of dry brittle spots on their skin.

The slight color it does have is due to Rayleigh scattering of the shorter wavelengths of visible light by the nanosized dendritic structure. This causes it to appear smoky blue against dark backgrounds and yellowish against bright backgrounds.

Dendrexies and fractals equal universal spirit mirror of the macrocosm just like the hopper crystals of halite and bismuth.

Production of aerogels is done by the sol-gel process. First a gel is created in solution and then the liquid is carefully removed to leave the aerogel intact.

The first step is the creation of a colloidal suspension of solid particles known as a “sol”. Silica aerogel is made by the creation of colloidal silica. The process starts with a liquid alcohol such as ethanol which is mixed with a silicon alkoxide precursor, for example tetramethyl orthosilicate (TMOS) or tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS). A hydrolysis reaction forms particles of silicon dioxide forming a sol solution.[22] The oxide suspension begins to undergo condensation reactions which result in the creation of metal oxide bridges (either M-O-M, “oxo” bridges or M-OH-M, “ol” bridges) linking the dispersed colloidal particles.[23]

When this interlinking has stopped the flow of liquid within the material, this is known as a gel. This process is known as gelation. These reactions generally have moderately slow reaction rates, and as a result either acidic or basic catalysts are used to improve the processing speed. Basic catalysts tend to produce more transparent aerogels with less shrinkage.[22]


In short use a non-polar solvent,..... di-ethly ether extraction, then dry the ether.

Arcana Divina----
"Now, then, take in the Holy Name of God, the crude gold-bearing mineral cobalt, discovered and obtained in the mines, as previously noted, was used in the secret preparation, which was then placed on a flat piece of tile and mixed with a little Nitre and allowed to remain for 2, 3, or even 4 hours, whereupon an astonishing change will be noted in the manner in which this material behaves, since there is now a penetrating force of the General Spirit of the World; which shows an increased oscillation and finally, to a very pronounced degree, reveals its astral nature: on heating to a brilliant red, an artificial ruby-red gemstone of inestimable value, exceeding the value of gold and termed the Treasure of Treasures results. When, however, the ferment involving an artificial gemstone such as just described is set aside you have a tincture suitable for preparing all metals.

When, however, you observe flakes of gold in the artificial gemstones which have been heated in our astral natural fire, you will observe that after vitrification, it becomes a royal treasure, and such a magnificent stone of this nature has never at any time been obtained in the natural state, regardless of the length of the search. And this is still the case at this present time.

How, and in what manner, can a gemstone be produced in an hour?

Take a quintel of fine gold, put it on a flat piece of tile or flat porous rock in front of our apparatus and calcine it on our astral refractory hearth for a quarter of an hour, then allow the entire focus to fall thereon and add to the gold a little nitre whereupon it will melt and become a deep ruby-red glass, which will be suppurated and will increase by about a half again. Then add thereto additional pulverized nitre, and then extract the product with alcohol and concentrate the extract and the fused material and metallize the same in the usual manner, converting it into a glassy material by heating (vitrification) so that this gold-containing glass-like material will be three times the amount of the gold originally added, as we weighed before and allowed to flow together from our refractory hearth, will be a homogeneous deep-red liquid, which will cool to a brittle mass and this will be one of the particular tinctures. This will now be one of the thousand parts of silver that has been converted into fine gold."

So now you know this crude , gold-bearing, mineral that contains cobalt? Who is of a cocks comb?

Do you think that it can be possible to get this phenomenon of water attraction in a bowl of glass open?

Here with these experiments we are approaching the very heart of the arcana in uniting radiant energy, a phenomenon caused by the movement of the aether, with and instilling it into a proper magnet. IMO these operations should not be shared in a public place like this....dan I will PM you, we are already in private conversations with some regarding these experiments, to all others look earnestly into the Mutus Liber, Chemical Moonshine and the experiments in this thread and the work of Patrick Rivere with mirrors, especially in regard to dew/salt of dew and union/solvation with a suitable earth and exposure/magnification of solar/lunar light or radiation and don't forget starry radiation particularly from the neutron star, Sirius, that I have written about in the past. (Remember that Sirius is the dog star)

Also glean insight from this phrase:

"Son, take the dog of Corascene and the bitch of Armenia, and joyn them together so shall you have a dog of the color of heaven."

Potassium Nitrate in Arabic and Latin Sources

The foliated sal nitrum as described by Michael Scot has been described at earlier dates by several Arabic authors. In the Canon (Al Qanun) of Ibn Sina (d. 428/1036) we find under article natrun: “It is the Armenian buraq and was discussed in the chapter of the letter b.”[12] Then under article buraq we read: “It can be burnt on top of live fire on a porcelain dish. The best kind is the Armenian, the light, the foliated, the brittle, the spongy, the white, the rosy and the farfiri” [13]

Al Biruni (973-1048) in Kitab al-saydana fi al-tibb in article buraq says: “in Greek it is aphinatrun[14] and in Syriac it is nitra[15]”. “The best quality is the Armenian that is light and foliated, having leaves. It crumbles easily with a farfiri colour; it resembles foam and has a burning taste.”[16] In the same article al-Biruni says that the foam of natrun is said to be the Armenian buraq.

Ibn al-Baytar gives similar statements. When discussing buraq he says: “ as to that which is called aphruntun[17] which means foam of natrun it is alleged by some people to be the Armenian buraq, the best quality of which is very light with leaves and crumbles easily; it resembles farfir in colour; and is like foam and has a burning taste,” [18]

In the Lexicon of Alchemy of Martinus Rulandus that appeared in 1612 A.D., Armenian buraq was defined as saltpetre.[19] In the same Lexicon, aphronitrum is defined as froth of saltpetre or wall-salt.[20] In Lemery’s Cours de Chymie,[21] it is stated that saltpetre was called aphronitrum by the ancients.

Elsewhere:
http://www.levity.com/alchemy/al_term1.html

"Armenian bole: red clay."

Like I said in the mines of hungary the clay is hotter because it contains more of this solvent(spirits of nitre) that began as an aerial nitre solved the fat (potassium) from putrefied/ dead plant roots and seeped deep into the earth. Where it further putrefied and gave birth to arsenic and sulfur, then marcasites, mother of metals. Wherefore the bible says, "Mingle Iron and Clay and thou shalt have the foundations of gold"- Daniel 2:33 and we have further indication whereforth says, "Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth" Genesis 27:28,..... remember the bible passages from the Mutus Liber?

Now read the Arcana Divina again in light of this....


See how these are just dry ways of proceding with the same experiment that is done in a wet way from the Golden Chain of Homer, where from the wet way we had our spirits of nitre from nitrified water produced during a thunderstorm and when it became putrefied we proceded to make a spirit that we put as a solvent to a suitable earth? So do as the Emerald Tablet suggests and unite heaven(dew) with earth. Above with below. Or separate with great skill that which is already in the red, hot, moist clay and subtlize it with our secret furnace.

Hey Leo.
Olive you too! ;)

Back at ya - this is what got me on opals:

http://www.answersingenesis.org/creation/v12/i1/opals.asp


I think this is highly significant.
If the elements are there to create opals, which they obviously are,
then the basics are covered. The details, the tweeking for different gems -
a touch of cobalt, aluminum, copper, etc - are minor. If one can create opals,
one has mercury, sulfur and salt of mineral kingdom. IMO, this guy has
discovered a great secret of alchemy. And note that he is growing opals because
he is using local opal "ore". What if different ores were used with proper
knowledge of seeding? A wise person could grow whatever they wanted.


The TEOS also has some similarities to the circulatum/volatile alkali.
Remember Starkey's soap by Dr. Geoffroy (sp?). This is similar with the addition
of sand; that is the vinegar method, not alcohol.


I wish you well with your Great Work(s) Leo.

Regarding the rainwater/ dew experiment and the virgin earth that forms and falls to the bottom of its own weight...here is a short audio clip of interest that deals with an experimenter having taken this virgin earth which he also calls gur and placing it in an incubator for six months after which time it turns white and becomes, the sort of "fly ash" that responds to the subtle magnetic fields of the human body by ascending even in a test tube of water, he goes on to describe how to use this characteristic to separate it, the pertinent audio starts at 01:34. Here is a link to the clip:
http://www.subtleenergies.com/ormus/tw/flyashall.mp3

Also on this clip is Jim, from Jim's Story talking about his fly ash that he made inadvertantly by hitting precious metal laden cyanide from mines (which obviously also has the universal spirit present) with ozone, also on this clip is David Hudson talking about his white powder of gold and how it behaves similiarly when heated.

This virgin earth seems the most suitable to procede extracting an alkahest from, by repeated distillations until the virgin earth becomes a dry water once again because since its newly formed, the bonds will be easier to break.

Another way to obtain a large volume of this earth is to use that which nature has already made in abundant quantity, in the book of Abraham the Jew the author speaks thus:, "This is the Spirit; thus out of the Dew is drawn out, and with which our Salt is prepared. The undermost serpent however denotes our Materiam, everywhere to be found; it is earthly and also heavenly, then it the right Earth, Virginea et Adamica. That one however may know what it is, so is such to be found under the Vegetable Roots".

This is because of the capillary action of the roots will draw the most suitable subtle earth to it which has accumulated directly below the roots, this earth will also be the "fattest", Abraham recommends especially that found mingled within grape vine roots a, red or yellow marcz, clay, is highly esteemed. Here on Patrice Partamian's website which is also showcased on the dailymotion French Alchemy documentary you can see him performing the "Way of Peats" http://www.enixephyto.com/page.php?idPage=14&langue=2

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x92...icisme-23_tech

However I'd like to point out that Abraham says not to include any roots, while Patrice does, subsequently he has to wait until the plant matter putrefys, however just as Abraham states the salts we need are already present in the right earth. "The red and yellow Marcz particularly, which out of the vineyard is very precious thereto; also when you take them out of the hole they must be taken knee deep, in order that they be free from all roots, 24 hundred weight. "

Also I'd like to say that my alkahest looks the same as Patrice's, a light green in color, although it stinks badly.

So it becomes pertinent then to identify which plant roots are most suitable to accumulate this earth, it is neccesarry to study plant root structure, roots of vines perhaps, not limited to grapes, how about potatoes? In particular the red skinned varieties along with the treasured blue potatoe contain the anti-oxidant, anthocyanin also present in the red grape which imparts all purple or red foods their color and medicinal qualitites about more I will write later.

Interesting as well is this image that was presented on another thread post #36

He was right, and at the same time indicating where to collect the adamadic earth, go into an area where the dirt is dark or black and pull up one of these plants , you will see that the earth directly below and around the roots is redder in color and richer in iron.

Here is a fun experiment with spinach which contains lots of iron, take several green leafs of spinach and soak them in water along with lots of lemon or lime juice, citric acid is a good extractor of iron, soak the mixture in the refrigerator for a couple of days, then filter the plant material out and get a powerful magnet, you will see that although the water appears perfectly clear it has become magnetic.

I presume this liquid could be left out during the spring time especially in may?

During the summer I noticed no matter how much I watered my garden by hand from the tap I could no get my new sown grass to grow. Then one shower of rain and the rest of my garden turned a beautiful green.

The next day I had new blades of grass. I guess Nature was presenting me some clues. That rain had something special come down with it.

Just wondering would the newly mowed grass left to rot yield up the same salts as the Way of Peat after all it would be the first contact with the special rain.
It certainly had the smell of a corpse when I left it to rot in a plastic bin holder and it turned black very quickly in the dark.

Must try next spring this method and see if I can get something.

I didn't mean "magnetic" as far as being a magnet for the spiritus mundi, I meant it as only a novel experiment a ceramic magnet or any magnet with north and south poles when brought close to this liquid will cause the liquid to be attracted to the magnet because of the iron it contains just like iron filings except its ionic or collidial iron,..... but then again who knows maybe the liquid will align itself to the north pole and get his excretions, try during a full moon.

Putrefaction is the key to regeneration, something similar to the palingenesis of plants is going on in the compost,... this(the plant spirits) mixes with the niterous elements in the air or they are its carriers this makes a veritable fertilizer that is passed to the new generation, this is similar to Reich's experiments with orgone and Reichenbach's experiments with moonlight.

This spirit is released again in Autumn that is why the philsophers said that the Great Work could be undertaken in either spring or fall but not summer or winter.

Hello Leo and everyone! Since I've been researching orgone, ormus, and alchemy I've noticed this gur substance seems to be manifesting itself everywhere around me. First, with an ormus extraction I did using grape seed oil to extract ormus from a supersaturated solution of Celtic sea salt and water. The gur-like material formed after about a week, between the layer of oil and water and had the appearance of snot. This was the most potent portion of the extract. Next it began to form in a golden water specimen that I saved in an air tight mason jar after drinking quite a bit of trap water. This began to form after about a month in the bottom of the jar and when disturbed it almost appears as if it's alive, by the way it moves. Then I noticed some that formed in a stoppered test tube of dew that I collected on the full moon last may. It appeared after a couple weeks and is snow white in appearance and the dew is now slimy but still completely clear. Finally I have an indoor air-conditioner with a built in dehumidifier that I have to empty every day. I decided to keep some of the water I collected in a closed mason jar and in a few days a large cotton ball sized piece of gur formed in the bottom while the water has remained clear. This is also snow white and actually has the appearance of sperm, I suppose this is why they sometimes refer to gur as the semen of Ra? I've also had the gur form a couple of times very quickly in the dehumidifier collection pan, it appeared the same night that the condensation formed, without having to letting it sit. This has happened only a few times and I assume it has to do with astrological influences, though since it didn't occur on a full moon I assume it must be another aspect of astrology that effects its formation. Considering I obtain about a liter of this dehumidifier water a day, I should be able to procure quite a bit of this gur to work with. The question now is what would be the best method to further process this material. I have a few ideas such as: 1) Keep the gur in the dehumidifier water or dew in a sealed container under a mild heat for a couple months and allow it to work upon itself. 2) Remove the still wet gur from the water or dew and distill the moisture over and then reapply the moisture to the dry gur and repeat the process a few times. Or 3) just dry the gur and use it as it is or try to make an ethanol extraction. I feel this material is showing itself to me for a reason and have an intuitive feeling that I may be holding one of the keys in my hand. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
-Peace

Excessive water hinders putrefaction, free the cake from all superfluous moisture, then apply option number 2) then you can apply option 3) once fermentation has proceded enough that you actually have a philosophic wine to extract

Thank you Leo. From what I understand from your post: I should first drain the moisture, then distill, then ferment, and finally extract. Or should I first drain the moisture, then ferment, then distill, and finally extract. I've always read that gur is a spongy brown mass, but mine is pure white. Does it only turn brown after putrefaction? Any Ideas on what caused the gur to form almost instantly on those couple special nights without having to sit for any period of time? When this happened it seemed almost magical that a earthy substance was able form so quickly from nothing other than moisture in the air without any time for any putrefaction.

Water has never hindered putrefaction with mine. Usually i let the gur form, and when it forms no more it seems to go into a putrefaction stage, i slowly distill it, let the sun bake the body, and circulate the liquid. When the gur is philosophically calcined, id grind it, and re-imbue the moisture, rinse and repeat and notice changes that occur until its "done".

It is said the gur is the "seed of the elements"... ^.^

The initial putrefaction that occurs is not the same as the subsequent putrefactions that elevate the matter above nature which I speak of, the ancients said the same, these are not new ideas that I have simply pulled out of my ass, the initial union can not be really called putrefaction, it is simply the union of the elements, fire and water i.e. the philosophical components "sulfur" and "mercury" respectively which at this point lie inside the corporeal bodys only as ideals or thought forms of the anima mundi or world mind it is in this way that they procede from the astral realm into the physical. It is out of their union that the virgin earth is born, hence its astral qualitites. This gur must be freed from the water of its birth in order that it be further elevated, its essence that has multiplied through the regeneration of its death is extracted through repeated distillations, by returning the distillate to the residue, allowing it to ferment then distilling once again, this is the significance of the death of Christ for three days, on the third he arose exhalted, now being more of an astral stone than an earthly one.

I cannot reveal the source or the true nature of this "fire" which joins to the water in the night-time air to form this gur on an open forum but suffice it to say that it appears in greater quantites in certain places because of the composition of the bedrock/ earth directly below, this fire however generally remains underground till the tidal forces of the full moon pull it out of the ground, other astronomical alignments influence it as well, additionally this "fire" flames around the moon itself, it is responsible for its glow which is really green but appears white because of the filtering effects of our atmosphere. And when the earth is in close proximity the earth because its gravity is greater pulls this firery aetheric field off the moon like a siphon and the earth pulls it down where most of it will end up underground as well. This fire however is not the same as that from the sun, it is limpid and cold, an invisible, impalpable vapor but it is the same as that which exists underground. Additionally since this vapor is generally heavier than the surrounding air it is easily blown around by the wind, hence why it can be collected in great quantites especially after northerly winds have prevaled, but it still generally hugs the ground but the lay of the land i.e. valleys may help to concentrate it in great quantites as well. However if you are in an area where it exists in great quantites under ground then it is better to collect when the air is still, a cellar or a hollowed out hole knee deep especially is very good but also under houses that are not ventaliated.

I want to add as well so that no one is lead astray I do not mean to infer that this fire is simply niter, it is not, it can also be a special kind of dust,... this fire is the cold humid fire that hides out in the niter, not all niter carries this fire, especially after it has been exposed to the sun, additionally this vapor can be caught before it becomes niter through the aid of a "steel" magnet and preferably a vacuum which aids in its manifestation, and you should know that perpendicular to all magnetic fields there lies an invisible current, just as all current produces a magnetic field so all magnetic fields produce electric currents, but in this case they are natural telluric and aetheric, but invisible nonetheless, unless of course you train yourself to see them or have special goggles.

Thanks Leo and Seth! You now have me contemplating star-dust and radiant energy.... My mind is beginning to feel as if it has entered the chaos, so many realizations lately I'm having trouble deciding which ones to follow. My next step is to acquire an ambelic to use in distillation, once I receive it and proceed with my experimentation I will be sure post my failures, experiences, and results in this very enlightening thread. Thanks again.

And rightly so radiant energy is much akin to the energy of the stone.

Nibiru since it appears you are an ormus enthusiast as well you might be interested in this :

This grease that Kevin collects from full moon air dissolves gold because it is the universal sperm of nature that I began this thread explaining, our gur and seed of metals, which the ancients said gold would dissolve into because it was its mother or beginning matrix.

Here is a site you can purchase a vortex tube from : http://www.airtxinternational.com/stainless-steel-vortex-tubes.html?gclid=CMaSmve2rqQCFQsCbAodCH3pzw

If you look at this site is has a nice flash demonstration of how a vortex tube works, these tubes are typically used for spot cooling cause they can simultaneously cool and heat air, we are looking for our aether adhered air from the cool side, if you follow Kevin's example you can put a mu-shield around this side and magnets as well on top of your di-ethyl ether/ water flask to keep the ormus in. http://www.newmantools.com/vortex.htm

Buy magnets from http://unitednuclear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=70_71

Becareful with these magnets they are not toys, they can crush skin and break bones, do not allow them to snap together or they will shatter. United Nuclear also has some cheap alembic style retorts as well as glassware: http://unitednuclear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=25_26&products_id=311

Thanks again Leo. Strange you should post the link to the air trap, as just yesterday I purchased some naphtha lighter fluid to use in place of ether in the hopes of extracting this very same grease from the trap-water I collected on the full-moon equinox with my winter sink trap. Very nice indeed...
Thank you!

Sorry if this has already been answered. Has gur ever been analysed in a lab for its chemical composition? Would it contain mostly nitre, or another substance all together?

I think it's a complex array of not only elemental compounds but organisms that manifest life energy...bacteria, fungi, molds, maybe some algae.

When you concentrate water by fractional freezing, a white sediment forms in the bottom: http://www.subtleenergies.com/ormus/tw/freezetolerance.htm
This sediment, when it comes from tap water, fizzes with HCl; from a chemical viewpoint, it is carbonate.
What would be the result on dew or rain.
