View Full Version : Solar Eclipse: Creation of the Stone

01-29-2018, 10:40 AM
Many who know me, know that I've been mostly quiet for a good deal of time now because I've been busy with my wife (known here on the forum as Lapis Solaris (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/member.php?995-Lapis-Solaris)), and that most of business stems from last year's total Solar Eclipse that passed through the US (on Aug. 21st, 2017).

We took this eclipse opportunity to both bind ourselves together, and to replicate a very literal and precise Microcosm of the Macrocosm. We went with a "Divine Cinnabar" path, using an enlivened Philosophical Mercury (enlivened with our quintessence, which you can see within this video here (https://youtu.be/saEEhw8zwxg)) and a Philosophical Sulphur of the most Noble sort. Our Sun and Moon were ready for a union, we just needed the right time.

https://image.ibb.co/c27mWw/Sulphur_Mercury.jpg

So we journeyed from south Alabama, up through Gatlinburg TN, enjoying the Nature and sight seeing, and cut through the mountains to Cherokee NC where we camped for the night. Monday morning (day of the eclipse) we sat out for a tiny little town called Andrews, which put us dead center of the path of totality - the perfect spot to soak up those Macrocosmic energies.

https://image.ibb.co/maJRWw/totality_path.jpg

We found a nice spot off the side of the road, away from the masses of gawkers, and we set up our Sacred Space and began our meditations. We simply had to wait then.

https://image.ibb.co/cZuByb/Work_at_the_center.jpg

Finally the moment was at hand. The light began to dim, a strange energy filled the air, things got cooler, a type of twilight took over everything, and Nature became silent and still. All stood in awe. Totality hit, we removed the eclipse glasses we had on, and took in fully the energies of the Eclipse - words fail us here, it was an initiation and a direct, in the body, communion with the All/One God as we looked it in the Eye.
Just as the Union took place Above, so we also performed the one here Below, mixing our Sun and Moon in the flask. The flask went dark, just as the sky did, and together we meditated with it, allowed it to soak us in its light, peering into its core, as it pierced through ours, all as we called it down into our little flask.

https://image.ibb.co/g8wGyb/Conjunction1.jpg

Then it was over. It was like being baptized. The light afterwards was different than the light before. We continued to meditate, there was some deeply profound things told and shown to us - nothing for anyone here to concern themselves with; things about ourselves, and what we are meant to do, and be doing.

Our flask retained those energies, our Blackened earth ready for the next phases - as were we. We were in the Black Phase, conscious of it, and ready for our resurrection.

https://image.ibb.co/hK09Jb/Conjunction2.jpg

We returned home, and set the work to incubate. During such time we had all manner of Shadows berate us. Troubled sleep, hellish and troublesome and stressful dreams - nightmares is an understatement. Strange noises would emanate from unoccupied rooms, and outside. All such activity got worse at night. Things would make the dogs who usually hang out at our back door, decide to abandon their favorite spots and lay low for the night. We ended up becoming night owls, finding it easier to sleep when the sun was out and the Shadows quieter, than to sleep at night when they had ruling influence.
Then, upon the darkest of nights, the dawn broke. From the black soil, came the growth. Life emerged from the darkness, and the worst was, seemingly, behind us. :D

https://image.ibb.co/c6V9Jb/Green_Lion.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/faQLPG/Green_Lion2.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/gmUEjG/Green_Lion3.jpg

This was the start of things getting better. But, Shadows don't only go for the blackened soil, but also the plants that grow there. We more easily continued this subtle struggle, and continued to incubate and cultivate the Work.
During this time, we began to settle into a slightly more normal routine (but anyone watching the time stamp will probably see I'm typing/posting this VERY early in the morning (currently at this moment 4:10 am lol), so old habits die hard), and at times when we least expected it, we had the strong presence of an entity threatening us, and the entire power grid at that same moment shut down. Twice this happened, the first time was explicitly strong. The last thing it tried was while I still worked for the ambulance company (I've been an EMT for the last two years), we were hauling a patient to the hospital, no big deal, it wasn't very late and I wasn't remotely tired. As I went around a curve on my way, it felt like I ran straight into a trap/portal and it majorly fucked with my head. It was is if the world and everything around was spiraling and twisting, and the very sense of gravity and where it pulled from, changed and was moving around. Luckily I was able to hold everything together, keep it all straight and steady, and my medic in the back didn't even notice. :cool: It all returned to normal after about a min, and never happened again. (I did get my medic to check my vitals, just to make sure there was nothing physically wrong with me. Everything checked out.)

Upon going back home, we pushed the Work - was time to leave the Black Phase all together. (Green is but an interim of it still)
Thus, we entered the White Phase.

Because I've used the maximum number of allowed photos and videos for this post, I'll continue in another one. This is a bit of a lengthy show & tell, but I hope you all enjoy it. ^_^

(Continued...)


This White Phase is where the "spagyrics" begin - as our philosophical Plant is "calcined" to white, and its Three Essentials are separated, rectified, and recombined.
Fairly easy thing to do, and the Shadows backed the fuck up when the flask went white as well. (but oh the malice felt from them. Oh well, haters gonna hate. ;) )

First thing we extracted were the Salts:

https://image.ibb.co/iR8wyb/Formation_of_Salts.jpg

Then we were able to distill the Philosophical Mercury:

https://image.ibb.co/iivLPG/Distilation_of_White.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/giPYBw/Philosophical_Mercury.jpg

From there we got the Philosophical Sulphur:

(without flash)
https://image.ibb.co/b6PByb/Philosophical_Sulphur.jpg

(with flash)
https://image.ibb.co/iBsmWw/Sulphur_with_flash.jpg

Thus we had our Three Essentials, ready for reunion/recombination.

https://image.ibb.co/iypN4G/The_gathered_three.jpg

We wasted no time either. We brought them together and watched our Three Headed Swan - herald of the White, become the Three Headed Lion...

https://image.ibb.co/buDh4G/three_headed_lion.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/m85WWw/Conjunction.jpg

We then incubated the Work with the water bath.

https://image.ibb.co/jdYJBw/incubation.jpg

After incubation, we saw a unique marvel; a second conjunction - another "eclipse" in the flask, but at a higher level. A volatile, spiritual Sun, impregnating and joining with a fixed, earthy Moon.

Watch the video of it here. (https://youtu.be/eyx8hmejeu4)

Its Soul finally fully impregnated this Body, and the faintest hints of the next phase poked through; the slight azure of the Peacock's Tail.

(continued...)

Then all at once, it was upon us; The Peacock's Tail.
Just as the first phase starts with a loving conjunction, death, and resurrection, so too does the second phase, but at a higher level.

https://image.ibb.co/cwYRWw/Peacock_s_Tail.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/dWhaPG/Peacock_s_Tail2.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/nkHWyb/Peacock_s_Tail3.jpg

As you can see, it got VERY vibrant at the end.
But once again the wheel turns for the Work.
From that lovely azure, we continued to move. The Shadows didn't have much time to react, as we were snowballing now - right on into the White Stone.

https://image.ibb.co/cFJRWw/White_Stone.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/ckDtBw/White_Stone2.jpg

This was achieved by means of fire. It made such beautiful crystals. They creeped and crawled all along the glass. We quickly realized they would sublimate with candle flame, and recrystallize along the top of the flask. So we cooked them, purifying them, removing all infirmity and any traces of impurity, gently ever increasing the heat.

But it was during the discovery, that the Shadows tried to interfere. We thought we were moving faster than they could react - but they still tried. On one occasion, our distillation equipment was knocked loose, but anything that retained a bit of the Work, was intact - despite its hard fall, and even our candles being moved, nothing was seriously damaged or amiss.
However, one night, right as we attempted sleep, the sounds of heavy footprints on our front porch, and multiple noises from around the house all at once, forced us up and to investigate. Nothing was found, except a mutilated rabbit left at our steps.

https://image.ibb.co/kDYtBw/Spiritual_Warfare.jpg

It was as if it was trying to threaten and scare us - but it failed to do so. (if anything, the notion pissed me off, and I turned my wrath on it.)

Never the less, we continued our progress, ignoring their threats and attempts to sabotage. Light prevails.
Here is a link to watch us turn the fire up drastically on our Work. (https://youtu.be/ZD6yX1nJ1pw) Even though the fire was intense, the flask appeared to snow as the Work sublimated and fell again, circulating nicely.

Then it gets really kool. You can see here the appearance freezing, as crystals in the shapes of downward pointing branches fill the flask. (https://youtu.be/61Mgc78Qk94)
Here is a close up of the branches:
https://image.ibb.co/jEufPG/Branches_of_Malkuth.jpg

Some may recognize them:
https://image.ibb.co/cSFWWw/Branches_of_Malkuth2.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/bEGPJb/Three_of_Life.jpg

The Branches of Malkuth of the Tree of Life, whose roots are in Kether, but the branches extend and manifest down into Malkuth/Kingdom - the manifested world, our flask.

Upon this entire cycle's completion, we were left with a stone as pure as snow.

https://image.ibb.co/gx874G/Completed_White_Stone.jpg

This Stone was used by us for medicinal uses to great success, even helping our cats. I used a crystal from it to seal and heal a deep cut (an accident of cooking that night), and it had fully sealed and was good after only two hours. (burned/throbbed like a mother fucker, like electrical pain, until about two hours or so. I noticed it had quit hurting and removed the bandaid to find it sealed. I have a pic of it sealed, but didn't think to grab one before then, as i was trying to not get blood everywhere. lol)

Next, came the Red...:D

(continued...)

https://image.ibb.co/k0Rryb/Red_Child.jpg

So then we were ready for the Red. The Shadow had pretty well ceased its attack, we felt pretty safe. We just needed to figure out how to mature our White to the Red.
Then I realized it needed nourishment. Virgin's Milk, as I would aptly call it. So we gathered some, and Nature readily provided it, and we fed it to our White Stone here. (https://youtu.be/nSuObu-ndmA) As you can watch and see, it readily accepted it and began to show its inherent, inner strength.

Here are the pics of after half of the bowl was fed, and then the entire thing.

https://image.ibb.co/hxih4G/Partial_feeding.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/cqrfrw/Total_Maturation.jpg

With the great joy it brought us, there was still more work to be done. Just as before, a union creates a sort of death, or transformation. The immature has to pass away for the Mature to be stabilized and fixed. Fire would again be needed.

So we set the thrice dead matter to the flame again, and again, like a phoenix, it began to flourish.

https://image.ibb.co/kovLPG/Final_Cooking.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/gfEEjG/Final_Red_appears.jpg

Many wonderful colors soon began to be seen. A natural separation also occurred - there was a distinction between Heaven and Earth.

https://image.ibb.co/hbsBWw/Last_Separation.jpg

We noticed something reminiscent happen with this too as the Heaven and Earth touched...

https://image.ibb.co/jtDwyb/Heaven_and_Earth_touch.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/hiMGyb/Adam_and_God_touch.jpg

Still, fire was increased and the circulation continued. (https://youtu.be/zCNOejx3P44) You can see in that video, some of the different degrees of colors it was going through, all the way up to a final, fixed citrine/yellow-orange.
I increased the fire to the maximum I could make it.
All at once, the matter's colors polarized and changed. We watched with anticipation - we had been cooking this for over 3 hours, at high heats. We continuously wondered if the glass would hold, but then, we began to smell faint hints of something sweet.

*BOOM*

It hatched.
The top blew off with a fury, and a white fume filled the air, and faded - but the smell. My gods it was soooooo good. Sweet like a fruit, but with strong hints of vanilla. I wondered if it were toxic, and if I had just poisoned us. But my God it was so nice a smell, I said "fuck it, its worth it." lol
We enjoyed it for a moment, and put out the fire, but also realized the flask had fallen onto the cooker. But most importantly, the matter in it was fixed - and the core of it, was red.

https://image.ibb.co/fefJdb/Red_Stone.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/mTPddb/Red_Stone2.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/bT56Ww/Red_Stone3.jpg

We were able to get out that large chunk without damaging the flask; it came out as several chunks.

Many texts say a red stone in the first degree won't transmute lead to gold - but we had to test it and see. We took a small lead weight, and a small chunk of the stone, melted the lead, and added the fragment to it.

https://image.ibb.co/imrGyb/attempted_Transmute.jpg

https://image.ibb.co/cWGGyb/Lead_in_crucible.jpg

The results were more than I expected, but no doubt we will work to multiply this, and make it even stronger. :cool:

https://image.ibb.co/nBkn4G/Lead_tinged.jpg

But thats what we've been doing, and what we now have. We also, after taking the Red, have had a rectification with the Shadow; I especially had a face-to-face confrontation... now we all understand one another, and there is no hostility anymore. All is One, and thats Our Work.

Lol, there was more to it than that. For example, we didn’t use elemental sulphur in our Work, as he did. We suspect that there is more to it with the multiplication of the Stone than what he says as well. He says to add more mercury to it, however there may be a riddle with the numbers he says to work with.

I don't remember if Robert Bartlett used sulphur either. If i remember correctly he used Gold aka Philosophical Sulphur of the most Noble sort. The first key was preparing the living mercury with the help of iron and then amalgamating it with Philosophical Sulphur.

I understand that you two added a lot of steps inbetween Bartlet's operations.

I would not put anything out of the flask at any stage of the process on open wounds or consume it in any other way. But I guess you are aware of the danger and willing to deal with possible concequences.

Remember that surface colorations are not necessarily indicative of genuine transmutations, though. To be sure that your product has really effected a true transmutation on the lead, even if only of a small part of it, the lead has to be assayed next and see if you can recover any gold (or silver) from it. Also, an equal weight of the same lead that has not undergone treatment/projection has to also be assayed to make sure that no gold or silver were already contained in it.

Thanks Seth-Ra for the wonderful pics and story. I wasn't far away from you the day of the eclipse, just across the river in fact. We found a spot on the water in Illinois.

Truly wonderful photos and a grand experiment. Love seeing this. When you say the lid popped off the flask, how was it sealed? if you don't mind me asking.

We trust the process and the signs it showed as universally having made it to the stage where we were safe with it. We were particularly careful during the lower stages not to breathe vapours/make physical contact with the materials used.

Haha aww thank you! We breathed and lived this Work, and so I'm glad you and others appreciate it. We also posted this all to FB but wanted to put it all together in a post on here upon the final stage (as in the red Stone, not that we're done with it yet). I must say, I do love the way he has worded his version of events and he spent a lot of time re-writing it all out again for this post.

How funny you were so close by! It sounds like you had a lovely spot.

The topper is a ground glass joint and aside from having some of the salts climb up into it, we did not seal the flask. We preferred to keep it so it could pop out rather than explode, you see. ;)

Yes, we are aware of this. The experiment here was a test really for ourselves out of curiosity that we are sharing with others for the same reason - curiosity. We will no doubt conduct proper experimentation when we seek further empowerment of the Stone as this is only in its first degree of processing. Thank you for the tips though. :)

I understand that you two added a lot of steps inbetween Bartlet's operations.

Bartlett used animated mercury, and gold, let it incubate, then add elemental sulphur - go through the color phases until red, stone in the first degree. Then he claims that to make it like wax, add 6 parts more animated mercury, let digest, and pow - its then waxy with ingress. Add 10 parts of animated mercury to multiply the stone's power.

The wax thing I think may be somewhat accurate, but the increased amount of mercury alone to multiply doesn't seem so. Time and testing will tell.

I wouldn't say we added steps between, so much as he either didn't fully document, or didn't actually accomplish the claim in the book. Regardless, we both performed the work, and accomplished it.

JDP, Lapis Solaris already answered this, but you are right, and we will do more precise testing in time, after a multiplication or two. Should yield better results to actually test.

I have personally been practicing Alchemy since I was 14, and have experienced quite a lot, and seen quite a lot. If there is one thing i trust, its my Work.
Besides, if it kills me, it kills me. No one, without success of the Stone and using it, escapes death. (and really, you don't escape it then, so much as pass through it, unharmed, though changed/transmuted.)
So it doesn't particularly matter. ;)

Glad you enjoyed it. :)

Quintessence of ourselves; humans carry a nice, special spark of the Animal Fire, and its very potent.

An astute observer will recognize the Sulphur. :D
Its precious. Not common - has to be made, and carries the signature of the Sun.

I share my Work, not to indulge vain recipe hunters, or to show off (couldn't care less who likes what we do - but am always appreciative of finding like minded brethren who can understand it, gain value from it, and who themselves appreciate it). I have always shared my works to inspire others - sometimes to warn of failures, other times to show that successes can be made and that the Art is true. Many get frustrated and quit. Many lose hope, or get jaded. I show what I do in order to rekindle any flames that may be close to going out, or have done so, and to restore and enliven hope in the hearts of those who read and see it. Same reason why I have, over the years, and even recently, freely given tinctures to those around me in need - to give them hope and help and a glimpse of deeper Truth. (the same things I also receive from seeng other's works.)

Thank you, we are quite lovely. :cool:
I wish you the very best as well, and again am glad you enjoyed the read-through.

Thanks Seth-Ra for the wonderful pics and story. I wasn't far away from you the day of the eclipse, just across the river in fact. We found a spot on the water in Illinois.

Truly wonderful photos and a grand experiment. Love seeing this. When you say the lid popped off the flask, how was it sealed? if you don't mind me asking.

Glad you enjoyed it, and yeah we weren't to far away. lol Wasn't it epic? :D

Lapis Solaris already answered the latter half, the only thing I'd add is that the vessel was heated lightly to get any residual vapor, and air out of it, and as the sublimating salts began to climb, we sealed it with the ground glass joint - twisted it on nice and tight. The vacuum holding it, along with the tight fit held it, until heat and all pushed it past its point of holding, vacuum and ground glass alike. lol But also as she said, better the top than the flask busting - which (especially early on) I was kinda iffy on. But i'll be damned if that Chinese glass didn't hold up. lol :D

Lovely work! Glad you two made it through ;)

As always, thanks for sharing!

Thank you. :)
I never doubted we would. hehe

Glad you enjoyed it.


Ha, well there’s always more to do, it seems :)

If my math is right, your work in progress up to this point took +/- 7 months?

Indeed there is always more to do, multiplying and continuing the Work. Such isn't the end, just the beginning. :)

Umm, I believe it only took about 4-5 months to get here, we are now heading into 6 I believe, working on the multiplying. :)

Quintessence of ourselves; humans carry a nice, special spark of the Animal Fire, and its very potent.

Dear Ishay / Jester :)

You're such an ANIMAL ! ! ! ... LO-L

I'm happy for you guys. Big hugs to both of you!

May the Stone be with you, always!

We took this eclipse opportunity to both bind ourselves together, and to replicate a very literal and precise Microcosm of the Macrocosm.

Three Rings for the Hermit-kings under the sky.
Seven for the Salamander-lords in their hall of the Stone.
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die.
One for the Lord of Light on his golden throne.

In the Land of Mercury where the Sulphur lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them.
One Ring to bring them all and in the brightness bind them
In the Land of Mercury where the Sulphur lie.

Thanks, to both of you. I do the same pre-heating because I'm paranoid about exploding glass, and I'm using the same brand from my last order. Good to know it will hold up ;) After receiving the order, I'm sure I'll be ordering most of my flasks from them in the future. Decent price, and I could feel the weight difference from my original kit. I've also wondered if the "cork would pop" before the vessel, and you guys answered that.

Why do you call this "The Stone", or was that just a title you chose to use for this thread?

Do you believe this is the Philosopher's Stone?

Awesome, glad we could be of some help in determining what a glass should be able to take. I'll definitely be ordering from the same glass company. ;)

Seth-Ra and Lapis Solaris,

Do you believe this is the Philosopher's Stone?

It's a title I chose for the thread - but also because I believe it to be the strongest and most true form of The Stone I've ever made in the course of my decade long pursuit and practice. So far it has done what it was supposed to - and while we are still learning about it, and I believe I've realized some things in how to perform it faster and more efficiently next time(s), at present I don't see why we wouldn't call it the Stone.
It's passed the color phases in order, It's followed the Principles of the Art, and it has drastically effected us and others as well as things around us.
We have but to work with it and on it, to multiply it and further transmute ourselves, gain mastery of this Thing, and by it, All else.
As I said before, creating it isn't the end, but the beginning. :)

Quite amazing. Its really good to see that sticking a piece of mecuric oxide into your skin didn't lead to a most painful way to die. There are more than just one alchemist who died doing exactly what you did.

However, since you didn't die, that's a great sign that you did a fantastic job!!

Were all looking forward to your multiplications. I also loved how you added the "Shadows" into your presentation. Was very fun to read. It 6:00am here and your story has been a great start to my day :)

Thankyou for sharing.

It's not like you would die at once after one application.

I will happily agreed to disagree. A good drop of mercury in the bloodstream is all you'll need to dissolve out a lot of your nervous system and selected parts of your brain.

Hense the shitty way to die since you'll probably have multiple strokes before it finally killed you.

I have absolutely banned using mercury in my lab. If I'm correct in understanding Seth-Ra's work, it is possible he's(they) are not actually vulgar mercury he's talking about (unless this was a new experiment different to his previous works)

Anyway, mercury, very scary, very dangerous. Sure I've played with it in my hands, however distilling is another world of death entirety (IMHO)

REGARDLESS, very impressive work you 2. Lovely to see a couple performing the Great Work together. Potentially the most romantic thing I've ever seen :)

We are working on the multiplications. :)

Also, the White Stone, crystals of which I placed directly into my bloody, open wounded finger, were not "mercury oxide"; mercury oxide is red/orange. ;)

The "Shadows" bit wasn't for humor, but as a warning to those pursuing the Path. As I've found, and stated in the past, there are things that will either make you or break you in the pursuit of these things. They aren't toys, and dabblers die; and you will find a time where the things you encounter are far older than "Jesus", and laugh at the notion of a savior coming to rescue you. If you walk the Path to the Stone - to Apotheosis, you tread the waters of growing into your own savior; help can be called for, but only if you possess deeper knowledge of how to do so - simple prayers and faith will get you killed.

But if it was also entertaining, fantastic. :) lol

Oh we took in the White on more than one occasion; making tinctures out of it to drink, sometimes breathing in fumes when we first found it could sublimate/vaporize... we have no fume hood nor respirators.
We play dangerous games here - and we play to win. :cool:

I have flooded the house with seemingly toxic fumes before - all those present had to leave, coughing their lungs out at the bare beginnings of the plumes, whereas I've walked into the epicenter, breathed deeply, and been unfazed by it - barely noticed it was there, aside from it being difficult to see. (blinding white cloud steadily pouring from an experiment, acting like the thickest fog you ever saw. lol)

If there's no magick in this world, I'd have died long ago. (I've been playing these games for years - practicing for about 12 years now.)

Yeah, mercury is toxic as hell when its in specialized forms especially. Metallic mercury isn't so bad, but its vapor can be.

However that bit I highlighted, I wanted to comment on the most: It is metallic mercury (Hg), enlivened with human quintessence.
Some thought from the Far East says if you feed mercury its fill, it can cease to be toxic, and can do other strange things, like solidify. I was less interested about it solidifying, and rather than feed it a shit ton of herbs and plant life, we fed it our own.
There was no chemical trickery - just pure alchemical magick housed within the material forms of matter that best suit their expressions. :)


We think its all romantic too. Hell, I proposed in the lab. :cool:

There are many dangers in this Work; both material and immaterial. But all is necessary to go through, for All of it is One and the same.

Define “worthwhile”

It's totally up for interpretation!


Kiorionis, when I ask if someone accomplished anything worthwhile on this site, I mean "profitable" (which is also up for interpretation and in the eye of the beholder). Surely in all work we undertake, successful or not, we learn something so technically every work is "worthwhile"...which is why I choose to phrase my question like I do. I leave it up for interpretation. What I would like is for people to share what they believe was accomplished worthwhile.


Truly what I am asking when I inquire if someone "accomplished anything worthwhile" is if anything accomplished aligns with the words of the Sages or has the characteristic properties described by the Adepts of the Philosopher's Stone--but that would be asking too much.

Well he banged his girlfriend right under a full eclipse. That's pretty awesome (IMO)

AND he made a medicine out of mercury, using Spagyrics, and didn't die (also pretty awesome)

And for all we know he may be coming up to an awesome assay.

He also gained even more of our praise and respect, for helping us all to pioneer this modern revival of Alchemy. What a worthwhile mission indeed!

Well he banged

First off, even the path of full totality only left us about two minutes. In this time, we combined the Work and we also have a rather clothed picture together with our eclipse glasses on and enjoying actually viewing it. Lol

As secluded as our spot was, there were still cars going past us directly before and after totality (whose view of our Work I blocked with myself).

I don't know what makes you think we had the time.

These words alone reveal a great deal about your character, outlook, and attitude, and they are to be applauded. I may steal "My whole life has been pretty worthwhile" as a daily mantra, don't be surprised if it shows up in a viral tweet by others whom I influence that have larger audiences than I do. :)

Yes he did but not all of his posts are displayed for all to see. I can't be more specific about it but i also remember now dead Aleilius always being afraid of Seth-Ra and especially his animal work. We always thought this guy is nuts but it wouldn't surprised us if he suceeds.

'Animal work'... 'Nuts'... LOL

You can't really succeed if you aren't a bit 'nuts'... In the sanest sense of the word... And Seth-Ra has always been this kind of 'nuts', only getting more refined with the passing of time...

I have great respect for someone so genuine and dedicated, someone who carves his own path, often 'the road less traveled by'.

I wish you both great success in your future experiments and joy in your life. I just want to ask for an update when the transmutation tests are over (and the evaluation of the transmuted matter). Anything more than that seems to be nothing more than greed from my part.
