    Androgynus, you always find the online gems I couldn't follow him to the end but admired some of his congealed knowledge.
    For example that "the alchemist must purify first his body", then "the final secret comes from inside". That the goal of alchemy is transmutation of the man himself. And that there was an amateur alchemist, who, despite his diligent work, couldn't bring his opus to fruition because he worked purely intellectually, without "love for god or mankind". in that way he left no chance for the manifestation of the necessary divine intervention and help..

    MPH is a great scholar, IMO.

    Thx.


    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    There are a few other audio lectures of Manly P. Hall on Alchemy, but the audio quality is quite bad.

    Like HERE and HERE, for example.

    There is also a website containing some of his works: The Manly P. Hall Archive

    Manly P. Hall was indeed a great scholar, but IMO we should definitely NOT take the whole lock, stock and barrel as true/valid for our own paths and compatibility.

    There is more than meets the eye to everything... and not all positively and constructively educational... freemasonry included

    The best thing Manly (among many others) says, is not to look for the 'big answers' externally, but within oneself.

    Alright! Thanks Androgynus. The living, organic library of Alchemy Forums expands with each step.

    Yes.

    I listen to that subscription here and there, now and again.

    It may interest you to know that Hall wasn't actually a mason; he did not participate in the degrees, but was awarded an honorary 32 degree for his research, understanding and contributions to knowledge.

    You mean, awarded 33rd degree of the Scottish Rite?

    Yes! That is what I meant, but not what I said. Turns out I was mistaken, at any rate. I learned a while back that Hall completed most of his works (Initiates of the Flame, Secret Teachings, etc.) and gave hundreds of lectures when he wasn't even a Freemason, though a very thorough masonic historian, and that his 33rd degree was honorary (as it always is). I took this to mean that he didn't partake in the blue lodge degrees, which he did when he was older. Sorry if I confused anyone, but I am glad I got that straightened out.

    Actually, it was kind of depressing for me to learn... I had always assumed that the secret teachings of all ages, his magnum opus, was completed at the very end of his life after an exhausted lifetime of study and learning. Turns out he published that book when he was in his mid-twenties, barely older than I am now. I guess I have some work to do. =]
