    Heater, cooking pot, and a couple of mason jars? hehe. I find the 1/2 liter wide-mouths indispensable, as they are fairly heat tolerant, there's not "bottle neck" to get in the way of gathering material from inside them, and they are easy to scrape and clean. Now if only there was a "screw on" alembic head, they would be just about perfect for everything.

    On the other hand, I've seen pictures of peoples labs long ago that are filled with all manner of testing devices to verify transmutation in tiny amounts. Fruitless, IMO. The masters would have made enough that they needn't be bothered with tiny particles too small to see.

    @Aunt Clair

    Those are some really interesting and thoughtful posts. I loved what you had to say and look forward to more, if/when you can. Coincidentally enough I was reading one of your posts from 2011 last night and you bring a completely new dimension to the spiritual discussion that I thoroughly enjoyed. Please keep them coming

    How many of us would we be ready to effect a jump of faith to face the truth?
    To be stopped on the line of all / nothing, life / death, true / deception, To continue being / not to be, etc, and to give a step forward... or not.
    Happy the one who comes to this situation.

    If you have ever been in this situation (I know Awani and a few others here have, including myself)...the ONLY thing you can do is surrender. The rest will work itself out.
