My friends and I have always talked and contemplated with one another about the end of the world, as we know it. It could be because of government, a zombie apocalypse, or some kind of natural disaster.

In such an event, as an experienced alchemist, what kind of things do you think you would be called upon to do for your group? In other words, how can your knowledge of alchemy be of use in a social collapse?

Probably a small risk considering this lengthy list: List of dates predicted for apocalyptic events (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dates_predicted_for_apocalyptic_events)

But if it still would happen I guess the advantage of the alchemist is that s/he is skilled in the self... and the more skilled in the self the more chance a person has to survive what might be a very heavy paradigm shift. Also if most people die a liking of hermitude is a plus.

:cool:

I doubt alchemy would be of much use... but I think lots of people would be begging for alchemists' supplies of toxic elements like antimony so to quickly end their suffering in a shtf scenario.

Antimony Suicide? sheeesh... it would have to be pretty bad scenario...

Alchemy it self, is always useful, it teaches about self assention (although probably not the best path in general for spiritual assention, but is a great stepping stone for beginners to learn the hermetic arts.), and I think during social collapse, that topic will actually be on the peoples mind a little more than usual. Of course "The Stone... blah blah blah"

Spagyrics most definitely has its place. Rosemary Elixirs and stones are great for knocking out the flu before it grabs hold of you, not to mention the myriad of other herbs, whom's elixirs are of great worth, more so when the public health system falls down.

And not to mention that an alchemical understanding, a righteous one that is, is the perfect perspective, I think, from which to grow a new world! One that is in tune with nature, animals, and the human soul. One that seeks the heighten and enrich, evolve even, all that is around them.

Alchemy will most definitely be practised in the next world. IMO.

One of the main draws of spiritual alchemy is that it trains one to deal with situations where the s*** hits the fan. Or maybe I've been reading the wrong authorities?

Civilization is like a tower; soon itll get too high and collapse... the survivors will rebuild over the great many years and over time we will come back to this same point once again, history repeats itsef

this is how i see it.

the alchemists escape this loop though.

I sympathize with your POV. What drew me to alchemy was the search for solutions to this Kali Yuga era we limp alonmg in.

So far through my spagyric work Ive made a few medicine's that could cure the common cold & flu, arrest inflammation and with the next Volatized Salts of Tartar In about to work, a significant amount more, such as blood purification, curing of phosphorus poisoning and treat cancerous tumors.

Thats about all my 'Alchemy' skills could provide. Mind you, in the path of learning the sacred Art; one tends to become a jack of many trades, and I hve learnt many spiritual practises and nutritional information that could help with the long term survival and hopefully ascention of any post-apocalyptic communities.
