    Interesting. Chemistry, from my perspective, is less a branch of science in itself as other, well defined branches such as biology, physics, toxicology, geology, etc. Chemistry is sometimes regarded as the "central science," meaning that all endeavors of science utilize chemistry for their aims. It appears that alchemy is no different, as the chemistry employed in alchemy is a tool for a greater purpose.

    if the purpose of alchemy is for you to reach a higher state of being / existence then you might save some time by throwing atheism out the window
    Indeed, reaching a "higher" state of being is not my purpose.

    Big History

    Eshai, there are many branches of scienceI just wanted to use a few to give the idea. We could look at life as a whole, like a cake, but this could be broken down into its component part such as eggs, flour, butter, sugar...etc...ect...; then further still into the chemical nutrients in the soil...etc..etc... I guess it depends on what point one would like to focus.

    The video below is much like the cake...



    Exploring the Universe: Big History 2

    The Sun & The Earth: Big History 3

    Life Begins: Big History 4

    Note the similarity of Alchemical processes.

    The Evolutionary Epic: Big History 5

    Human Evolution: Big History 6

    Dev in the vid' above you may be interested on the point made at 10:50 especially 12:26

    Migrations and Intensification: Big History 7

    The Modern Revolution: Big History 8

    The Anthropocene and the Near Future: Big History 9

    The Deep Future: Big History 10

    And so ends the brief history to the beginning of Alchemy

    The next big question is, "What is Dark Matter/Energy and what can we do with it?"
