I'm ready for that million dollars now.
This matter is indeed in the mineral kingdom alone. It is not contained in
the human being that I know of and cannot be urinated or defecated.
It is indeed the stone the builders rejected - and this fits a modern context
more than I can imagine an ancient one.
It is vile - you don't want to breathe it.
I'm not sure why looking at it would harm one. I suppose if you are close
enough to see it, you are likely to be breathing it.
This stone is indeed an oddity of nature. When we consider other minerals
and ores, they all have pretty much similar features - be it stibnite, massicot,
marcasite... the dragon image doesn't help IMO. There are hundreds of
minerals that are spiky or bumpy... hundreds covered by a crust
or exhibiting various colors upon interacting with the air....
This minera can look like many of those others, as it's component elements
are nothing exceptional, unusual or exotic. But it can also appear unlike any stone,
and if I told you how, directly, without symbolism or allegory, I fear I would
give it away, as it is the only minera I am aware of to exhibit such appearance in
nature. But man can, and does, make some minera have this appearance (industrially speaking).
I'll have to give this some more contemplation. Some things become very
obvious and apparent, but some are still mysteries - a water that does not
wet the hands? I don't see how that applies yet.
I have to take some time and become more familiar with this matter.
While this matter is composed of extremely common and available elements,
to find them together, in this form, this manifestation as this
minera, is not at all common, but it was known to the ancients.
These uncommon ones evolve from very common ones, and i am presently
considering if the common may be used in their stead.
It does not crystallize as hexagons.
But there are six of them.
I'm currently trying to figure out if one has to begin with these specific
materials or if they can be evolved in the lab or even substituted, for the
maleness and femaleness exist in many common minera.
What I mean is, now that I know what makes one male and one female,
do we need this very specific male and female, or what happens when we
combine other males and females that are not so toxic and readily available.
Will the mere fact of their being the male and female counterpart
of eachother, through union, create a solvent/matrix for Sol or other metals?
If anyone knows what I'm talking about, I'd be happy to hear from you.
ps - IMO, that Fulcanelli description does not help at all.
