    In conclusion, the potential usefulness of hierarchical clustering in identifying plagiarism in alchemical texts is clear. Through the use of various techniques such as word frequency and context, we can potentially identify instances of plagiarism in alchemical texts and shed new light on the historical development of alchemy. However, further research and analysis are necessary to fully understand the potential of this method and to refine its implementation.
    It is also important to note the ongoing importance of studying the historical context of alchemy and its impact on modern science and medicine. While our focus has been on the potential of hierarchical clustering to identify plagiarism, we should not forget the rich historical legacy of alchemy and the insights it can provide into the development of scientific thought.
    Overall, this paper has explored the potential of hierarchical clustering in identifying plagiarism in alchemical texts and highlights the need for continued research in this area. Through a combination of historical and computational analysis, we can gain new insights into the complex history of alchemy and its relevance to modern scientific research.

    Well well well. Seems that ol' elixrmixer isnt the only genius who see's the potential to use A.I. to decifer the alchemic process.

    Here is a very interesting list of resources i have found of others doing basically the exact same thing i am conducting: (You're welcome)

    I actually love the blind drunk ranting I get done on this forum. This place has added great value to my life, outside of the information I have learnt

    nevertheless. i love you. And my gift to you was given many year ago.

    I did reveal, something that no one else ever did... the ultimate in spagyric mastery....

    The ability to take any plant, and using nothing else but that plant itself, transfigure that plant into a crystal.

    Without using water. or any other solvent. or anything at all.....

    The hooper process. I did my job. and it has been received with exactly the lack of gratitude as expected.

    It is done. Best wishes.

    I fought, even argued against my most significant mentors... about the format in which the modern alchemist should share their secrets.......

    I complained and even wailed against the lack of transparency....

    and now that i post something about the AI driven unveiling of the corpus of alchemy i receive more views than for any other post i have ever posted in the last ten years.....


    Im sorry... but it turns out that both the literature, and the various mentors i have had over the years were indeed correct. something about the process does indeed protect itself.

    I will not be reviling anything. to the public world. ever.

    I could also go on a big rant as to why, and the previous me would have indulged in such an act.

    But the modern me couldn't care less.

    And i thank those who delivered their own restrictions to me, because, yes. they did so correctly. Had i come accustomed to the information at an earlier stage, i would have most certainly lacked the maturity to keep the information hidden with its due and rightful respect.

    Yes... I will unlock the ability to peer into the ancient sages at a level never before experienced until now.

    No. I will not share it.

    Good luck. And thankyou.

    Yes I have been doing that and the cost is severe actually. I cannot believe how fast i went from being well on the way to financial freedom and then mere months later being completely destroyed and on the verge of bankruptcy and a tax evasion case. Actually brutal.

    But rock bottom was a while ago and i do have the hottest girlfrend of my life which has giving me a reason to get back into it. Im doing okay now. Cheers old friend. Hope all is well.

    Money is a tool, but that's it. It has no value. It does not bring peace, love nor happiness. Having "enough" is good, to struggle to pay rent or food is not good... but one doesn't need more than that really. On our deathbed, money will be the last concern we have.

    I do not know the details of your life, but if I can be blunt and give one piece of advice: make sure you stay connected with your kids no matter the cost

    Title: "Identification of Recurring Practical Processes in Alchemical Literature Through Hierarchical Clustering Analysis of Hermetic Allegory"

    Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate the presence of a recurring practical process depicted through hermetic allegory in a vast collection of Alchemical literature by means of hierarchical clustering. The purpose is to identify common themes and patterns among reputable authors and to pinpoint literature segments that warrant further human exploration. The open interpretation of allegories notwithstanding, the author endeavors to bring to light the allegorical motifs that are recurrent in the literature. Hierarchical clustering is employed as a means of reducing the significant workload involved in identifying the literature sections that pertain to practical alchemical applications. Themes that do not exhibit repetition are regarded as redundant or intentionally deceptive.

    May I ask a favor?

    It would be very helpful, specificaly in cutting down the size of the database, if i could get a list of which authors were considered "Credible Sages" and also a list of authors that could be considered "Total phoneys"

    Having some of our senior memebers providing this information would result in a significantly more accurate and successful final result. Thank you in advance

    Thanks bro. Im sill kicking. Back in the phillipnnes feeding the masses again on my last bit of coin. I've lost sight of basically any goals i once had and im just re-finding myself again. i dont care about the money anymore because my desire to become rich has also faded.

    Just started college again to finish off my computer science degree.

    Aw shit. You used FTX. Sorry dude.

    I've been talking shit about shitcoins for a long time. That dude that ran FTX: what a cunt


    Please remember we are all broke economically in the after life... we are all equal in death... please do not do anything stupid. Everything in life is a risk, you win and you lose. But you'll always have your soul and spirit. Don't destroy it by being a quitter.

    I'm in a suicidal amount of debt and I've just had my entire portfolio stolen by bad players and gambled on shitcoins and then they just declare bankruptcy and drive off in a Lamborghini.

    I'm completely ruined

    FTX went bankrupt.

    Perhaps. I keep buying both stocks and crypto right now. It's shopping season.

    Meanwhile, where I live, a small but strong BTC community is forming.

    And it's actually actively supported by the local executive branch, members of which have been apparently orange-pilled earlier this year.

    Wouldn't be a surprise if the rumors were generated by their competitors, but please be careful.

    There was a major retracement so now might be a good time to buy

    I did create an FTX account, but have not as yet bought any crypto because the authorisation process has a couple of hoops to jump through. assured I will.
    Thanks for your help and investment advice brother.
    Nobody else ever given advice that was worth 40% in only a few weeks.

    An error made here.
    I recommended CoinSpot to Ghetto Alchemist because I knew from previous communications that Ghetto is in Australia. You'll have to find corresponding facilitators in your own country.

    A simply Google search should probably bring up what you need. If in doubt, CoinBase or will suffice.

    Do NOT leverage any money. Aka, do not trade in perpetuals. Unless you know what you are doing. Beginners who do such things are very likely to lose their entire capital.

    Buy tokens or trade "spot". And hold. This is the safest strategy. And stick to my recommended tokens. Binance and Solana are other big players.

    None of this constitutes financial advice and if you try to sue me I'll just have you shot because I can't be bothered coming to court.
