    For me, Fulcanelli is one of the greatest adepts, and his work deserves to be read, not once, if not many times, in each of them new things are revealed, new sub-layers of knowledge are shown to the seeker. I believe he existed and several people knew his real name, but in honor of his status, they never revealed it.

    Bien sûr nous ne pouvons pas passer à côté de l'Œuvre de Fulcanelli. Le problème est qu’on à beaucoup de préjudices sur lui pour le simple fait qu’il n’est pas un auteur classique.
    Évidemment il ne dévoile pas en clair, il parle donc métaphoriquement comme tous les alchimistes. Par exemple, quand il mentionne antimoine il ne se réfère pas a ce semi-métal, en fait il avait dit plus d’une fois que sa matière n’était pas l’antimoine. Il faut le relire pour sa juste compréhension, mais il va bien sûr ennuyer ceux qui attendent y voir une recette dans ses livres.
    En fait, le meilleur de son ouvrage est la sublime révélation qu’il avait fait à propos du rapport entre alchimie et hermétisme.
    Effectivement, Canseliet ne savait pas son nom et contrairement à ce qu’on croit il n’était jamais initié par lui. Il existe l’hypothèse que Cotton Alvart était son seul initié. En tout cas, parmi les « Frères d’Héliopolis », la seule personne proche à lui était Dujols.

    Hi Schmuldvich,

    That's a point of the this blog entry, but yes a capital one also. It is a Christian and Martinist point of view, also Kabalistic one, because the Vases are broken, and we need to repair all that.

    The saving power is outside us, and within us at the same time. That's why it is adapted to devotion (outside) and internal mystic (inside), or simple belief in "yourself" as a capable, full of capacities, person.

    Is it hope, no - yes if hope is aligned in this vision but basically it is no a necessity at all or prerequisite, is it simple understanding of Nature, yes. As the Philosopher Stone, or Biouddha, or Consciousness, Christ, or an Arnold Shwarzennegger in a film, it is a saving principle. A life kacket or a buoy when in water. An extinguisher with fire, or firemen...

    A situation can require an "element" as a solution, or piece of the puzzle. It's a fragmental and fractal maze matrix, and we need the Ariande thread to get out of it.

    It's like "find the others", it can be someone, something, yourself. As long a it is "saving" you - or making you understand that you are already saved. But for a civilazation it can be different.

    Hi Salazius, I took the time to read your entire blog post (on your site, with images).

    Is the main point that you are trying make that we need to 'return to [a higher Power]'?

    From everything you've written in your blog it sounds like you are blaming our 'turning away from [righteousness]' as a major catalyst or cause for the supposed catastrophes and seemingly bad things currently occurring in the world. Is my analysis of your post correct?

    If 'turning away from [righteousness]' is not what you are attempting to say is the effect of these terrible events, then what is it you were attempting to convey in your blog post?

    [INDENT][B][I]"And we basically NEED to cling to a Saving power. The pseudo secular modernism will erase all that."[/I][/B] - Salazius, 2020[/INDENT]

    What value do you find that clinging to a Saving power provides?

    Hi GL,

    Thank you for sharing your opinion. It's important for me to share what I've learned in these Arts through a real, "official", published book. It has just more "weight" down here than just a mere free pdf threw in the wind.
    Curiously people don't give big credit to something free. It has no value for them. (This is not an excuse to the fact that people will have to pay something, and only 10% to me, I almost do it freely, but I'm glad because some people can make a living out of edition). But I do consider and hear perfectly the idea you mention : spirituality should be free, but the support to diffuse it, is very often not.

    I also believe in the process of energy exchange. My time, energy, researches, pains and knowledge compressed, condensed and brought to manifestation against some money. It's just a magickal process like anything after all.
    No one critics Paracelsus or Glauber, or any other adept for having published tons of books in the past and, actually make money out of editions ... They several times wrote bullshits in their books just to sell them. And they are nowadays greatly considered...

    I confirm that no one can live or become rich in the process of publishing its works in these fields, and my goal is not at all to be like Rivière, or Burensteinas, Bartlett, etc or any other people of that kind, in the light of the scene.

    "Salazius" is just a name, there's a difference between a scene name and actually feeling to be this entity. Big difference. Like any other pseudo I had in the past, it is fowed to disappear when the mission is fulfilled. Maybe in few years. I don't know yet. For now there's a job to do, and I'm gonna do it well.

    By the way, a whole chapter is about reading the old authors. And this book has nothing to do with other published books. And I do invite people to read the "Adepts" as sure references. The fact that i'm, or not, an "Adept" is not at all a problem for this book.

    Hi Salazius

    I am disappointed to learn that finally you decided to publish this book. As the time spent since the last time that you spoke to me about it, I thought that the reflection had brought you to decide to publish nothing.
    I am of those who consider that the spirituality does not have to get married to the money, whatever is the quantity. The fact of saying that we do not grow rich with the sale of a book has nothing to do with the heart of the problem. If the purpose is really the sharing, without any ulterior motives, there are two things to do (in my opinion, I give here only my personal opinion): either to sell the book but all the money is put back in a charitable work, or to put it in free access on the Internet.

    The second thing (quoted on your blog) from which you defend yourself is the expectation of glory. Indeed, you do not give your real name. But since the time that your pen name is present on FB, your blog etc., it returns to one of your identities. Thus not to look for personal glory, it is necessary either to sign of another ever used pen name, or to write anonymously. It allows then to get away the potential link between your book and your blog and thus the creation of a "glory" from your pen name which spatters on you.

    Finally the last thing is the fact of writing a book on the alchemy without having finished the Great Work. As long as everything was not ended and validated, we may be self-assured, the Truth is not necessarily present. Thus avoid writing a book (which from then on takes a different status that the sharings which we can have on the Internet or IRL), it is to avoid to others stumbling blocks. There is a great deal of works which were written by Adepts, it is better, for me, to invite the readers to read them. On the other hand, to translate texts little known to make them accessible is useful for the alchemists. There is well for me a difference. Still the translation has to be good, no glory has to be removed from it and that the money is redistributed in a charitable work.

    For the rest, each makes what he wants. But a friend also has to say of what he thinks.

    Hi Andro,

    Thank you. People prefer Youtube and pinterest or facebook for non sense informations and insipid videos.
    Hardcore informations need a bit of energy and I hope french will enjoy my book without having to "chop my head off" and saying that i'm a charlatan seeking money. We perfectly know that writing about alchemy never make of you a millionnaire.

    Krisztian, thank you too
    I'm eager too, to see the cover !

    My book will have 69 ... And it would more likely be an audiobook, that I'll record myself...

    The real reason behind the famous barricades, was the French fighting for the right to avoid learning English at all cost ! ! !

    (Or to pretend they don't speak English, even if they do )

    Now seriously:

    Wishing you success wit the book, although I've recently read a "statistic" that says French people increasingly write more and read less

    Then again, any statistic can prove a thing and its opposite just the same, depending how the questions are formulated and more importantly, who paid for the survey in the first place

    Lol, Dev, don't worry, I know people here don't read french, but my publisher suggested me that it could possibly be translated.

    Ha ha, yes, I read you Elegy, and I didn't remember there were 67 in it !

    I hope you will make an English version as soon as possible, no matter I want a copy even if it is in French.

    68 laws... funny, I have 67 in this book: The Elegy of the Lotus, so you beat me with 1.

    Good job on the accomplishment.

    In the East for Taoists, only about 5% to 8% accounts for cleaning out the physical body by diet and other physical means. The other 90% is about the flow of ch'i with Qi-gong, Tai chi, nei kung.

    The Lapis has an energetic field about it, one can evolve it out with the near presence of an alchemist who has evolved out their 'second body' the immortal one. Eventually in that body one does not need to eat.
