Learning Latin

Rate this Entry
So next semester I am taking a break from computer programming and just focusing on Alchemy.

I will be studying Latin and am building my dream Spiritus Mundi generator that I've been talking about for years now.

Does anyone have recommendation for the most important Latin texts that I can use as learning material while studying?

Regards everyone, hope you are all well.

    Hi Mr. Mixer

    It's great to see you still have an interest in the Work.

    As for your dream Spiritus Mundi generator I'm looking forward to this.
    About 25 years ago I spent a lot of money on a very large glass ware
    set up to capture SM ... It didn't work but my hope is that yours will.

    Being able to read Latin texts probably won't assist you.

    English is the clearest language for you and if you cant advance with that
    than Latin will be even less helpful .

    Extra languages is just making it more difficult for you.

    What you need to Proceed in the Work is Understanding of what you read.

    On the other hand if your not concerned about "The Work" and just want
    to have some fun with other languages then it sounds great.

    Mrs. B and I are well and hope all is well at your end.

    I'd love to hear more about your SM machine Mr. Black! Glad to hear Mrs. B is well. Mrs ElixirMixer is rundown and soon to have a mental breakdown from being overworked for the kids so I am about to give her a week long healing session with lots of massage and spoiling.

    I am studying Latin just because I have 2 friends that are doing it next semester, I've always been a little draw to the language as like, the more powerful, magical version of English.

    So yeah I don't think that learning Latin will teach me Alchemy, but it's just an excuse to bring myself closer to the work. And if I have to study Latin text anyway, I may aswell be studying alchemical maniscripts.

    There is a perfectly non-zero chance that my apparatus will 100% fail.

    I think any normal person looking at it would think I've completely lost my mind to be honest, but I just can't stop wondering whether or not I am actually correct in my hypothesis and I feel like, for great rewards, There needs to be some sacrifice
