  1. First Attempt to Distill Phosphorus

    For anyone actually interested in this... a few quick web searches will reveal a number of various ways one could potentially go about distilling urine in order to obtain elemental phosphorus. Highlighted here is one such method which is floating around the Internet.

    To summarize, the recipe is to allow an amount of urine to stand for seven days. At the end of the week, add an amount of carbon and cinnamon, mix it together, and distill completely at high heat. Capture the distillate ...
  2. Alchemy and Fear of Death

    In all of my reading concerning alchemy, the human spirit is presumed to be real. I guess that is mainly what keeps me interested. I fear death. I fear pain of death. I fear helplessness.

    The process is simple in theory. Dissolve an amount of salt (NaCl) which would completely dissolve in a known amount of water/ethanol mixture (amounts calculated by weight, not volume); treat the mixture as if it were 100% water when determining how much salt to add (for example, 3.59 g of NaCl dissolves completely in 10 g water at 20 C). Weigh the amount of undissolved salt remaining, and that will tell you ...
  5. Origin: Part One

    1. Origin: The Prime Paradox

    'Origin' is rooted in Paradox. The Root 'is' No-Thing, but only a Virtual Continuum of Potential/Possibility, at the Extremes of which there are the Possibility of 'Nothing' and the Possibility of 'Everything'.

    All Possibility/Potential 'is' Virtual, Abstract and UN-Knowable.
