  1. MBK 2 Ms. chem. 21 Lux lucens in tenebris, Splendor solis, Angelus lucis (1584)



    A couple of things.. I resize images before posting.. I'm not extremely consistent, I use anywhere from 500-600px width. I don't have the patience to resize one copy for display, upload both that and the original, and hotlink the display to the original. There is no click bait or ulterior motives here, I have no idea of how many people "View", there are no "likes" or other fake internet points, there's no ranking that's ...

  2. geometrical diagrams.

    During some recent researches I've happened upon a few german words that have led to more information about the things I like to talk about.

    Anywho.... I went and tried again to fast for 40 days. 160 days i had spent in deep remorseful, repentful tears over the loss of my wife. I prayed and prayed and prayed, but allas, she toldhe that she was talking with other ...

  5. Phoenix and Salamander

    From Louis Ginzberg's "Legends of the Jews"

    Among the birds the phoenix is the most wonderful. When Eve gave all the animals some of the fruit of the tree of knowledge, the phoenix was the only bird that refused to eat thereof, and he was rewarded with eternal life. When he has lived a thousand years, his body shrinks, and the feathers drop from it, until he is as small as an egg. This is the nucleus of the new bird.


    The phoenix is also called "the
