    Thanks, Salazius!

    Still wondering about the wet hands story, though. GL described having done and observed this and similar qualities pretty clear. I hope he's still healthy and doing well despite these actions.

    "No, why?"

    You made me remember a similar joke on one of Russian chemist forums:
    "If you dip your hand in the bottle with concentrated sulfuric acid, you will feel that this bottle has no bottom."
    But I think that alchemists weren't so sadistic and they actually meant something else

    Perhaps worth a gander: gander verb Australian; meaning, 'look', Comes from the term 'gander of geese'. "Have a gander at these rock specimens."

    https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/Dew

    Exodus 16:13-14
    When the layer of dew evaporated, behold, on the surface of the wilderness there was a fine flake-like thing, fine as the frost on the ground.

    Numbers 11:9
    When the dew fell on the camp at night, the manna would fall with it.

    THIS is deep and awesome:
    Isaiah 18:4
    For thus the LORD has told me, "I will look from My dwelling place quietly Like dazzling heat in the sunshine, Like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest."

    Isaiah 26:19
    Your dead will live; Their corpses will rise You who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy, For your dew is as the dew of the dawn, And the earth will give birth to the departed spirits.

    Judges 6:36-40
    Then Gideon said to God, "If You will deliver Israel through me, as You have spoken, behold, I will put a fleece of wool on the threshing floor. If there is dew on the fleece only, and it is dry on all the ground, then I will know that You will deliver Israel through me, as You have spoken." And it was so. When he arose early the next morning and squeezed the fleece, he drained the dew from the fleece, a bowl full of water. read more.
    Then Gideon said to God, "Do not let Your anger burn against me that I may speak once more; please let me make a test once more with the fleece, let it now be dry only on the fleece, and let there be dew on all the ground." God did so that night; for it was dry only on the fleece, and dew was on all the ground.

    Turns out that "The Holy Spirit" as mentioned in the bible, when translated literally in paleo-hebrew actually means:
    "Breath set apart for a purpose" or "The set-apart Spirit"

    Have a look at this: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fnSFgETF0NE

    The video is probably a bit biased, the statement is a bit like a huge generalization.
    The Old Testament contains obvious influences of a non-monotheistic past... and you can find there the Ruach Elohim (the spirit of "God"), the Ruach Adonay ("The Spirit of the "Lord"), the Ruach Al (Spirit of "God")... and then the Ruach Hakodesh and the Ruach Kadsho (Holy Spirit... somehow).... but also clear references that man has a "Spirit" (Ruach) that is broken (Dakkei Ruach, ruach nishbarah) and expects to be "restored".

    The Ruach HaKodesh (Also the Ruach Elohim and others) work quite similar to the "Soul of the world" (psyche tou kosmou) created by the Demiurge in the Timaeus of Plato (as much as I like the gnostics, I also think that Plotinus was right when he criticized the "strange" understanding of the Timaeus by the Gnostics... they created an interesting theory, but it is certainly not in Plato, at least not in the way they wanted).

    AND then we have the new testament is complex too... we have a "Parakletos" (Assistant, Defender... but its translation as "Holy Spirit" is certainly bizarre -which is something that began with the Latin Vulgate of Jerome, who translated "Parakletos" as "Spiritus Sanctus", but it's a wild interpretation and quite far from its meaning)... and the "Pneuma" (Breath, Spirit).

    However some alchemical texts certainly made an effort to link the "Parakletos" to the "Spiritus Mundi"... specially some early Rosicrucian texts that don't use the expression "Spiritus Mundi" at all, but "Parergon" (side-work... a "side-work" that would evolve into the "Ergon" or "Work"). It gets impossible to consider that they did not have the concept of "Parakletos" in mind when they began to talk about the "Parergon".

    BUT linking the Old Testament concept of "Ruach" with the New Testament concept of "Parakletos" involves a great speculation. Same thing happens when the "Parakletos" and the "Pneuma" become the same thing (as in the Vulgate or translations to modern languages).

    So I would be VERY cautious with the translations, they are hardly literal at all.

    I bought an $18 card reader just for the big reveal. Hope the powers that be are going to grant the world my treasures.

    Its a full moon + thunderstorm tonight..

    Tonight is the night.

    Mega SM Super Soaker is mostly set up.

    Linen sheets at the ready.

    This is a big moment for me.

    Booked the wife in for some celebration snuggles before i get to work preping for 1am collections.

    No heat used in this system at all. Only "the breath".
