I just stumbled upon this yet-to-be-released book: The Metaphysical World of Isaac Newton (https://www.amazon.com/Metaphysical-World-Isaac-Newton-Knowledge/dp/1620552043/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1512347856&sr=1-1&keywords=the+metaphysical+world+of+isaac+newton)


Newton’s heretical yet equation-incisive writings on theology, spirituality, alchemy, and prophecy, written in secret alongside his Principia Mathematica

• Shows how Newton’s brilliance extended far beyond math and science into alchemy, spirituality, prophecy, and the search for lost continents such as Atlantis

• Explains how he was seeking to rediscover the one true religion that existed prior to the Flood of Noah, when science and spirituality were one

• Examines Newton’s alternate timeline of prehistory and his study of prophecy through the Book of Revelations, including his prediction of Apocalypse in the year 2060

Sounds interesting. Comes out in February.

Unfortunately, many historians still think of alchemy as being "something else" than science. In reality it was always part of what in centuries past was understood as "natural sciences". Newton's interest in the subject was therefore not "out of place" with his other usual scientific pursuits, unlike his interest in Biblical interpretation and the like pursuits that have nothing to do with actual science.
