    Universal and the Particular

    adapted from two secret manuscripts with the greatest
    accuracy for printing for the first time

    again, members of the German fk-alchemie forum where very helpful with particular passages that are hard to understand as well as certain symbols.

    Thanks!

    I read your old and natural path translation and was greatly thankful for that.
    I ordered this work already

    The most interesting piece of information in this book can be found in the first letter where it is revealed that our Antimony can be found in the coal mines where no metal grows. I found this piesce of information very strange...

    The substance in question most likely is copperas extracted from marcasite - this fits also with the Naturweg manuscript.

    How exactly, if you don't mind, does this fit with the Naturweg manuscript?

    Thanks.

    Cant recall the location - but the original hints towards this substance(s) where extracted from there (and Fulcanellis Cathedrals) - the reading of the 13 letters came only later and confirmed it nicely.

    What I personally got from 'Naturweg' is that the Center of Nature (the Earthly Part of the Matter) is best taken from Man, as many other philosophers also seem to indicate/imply (although other sources exist, as the Matter is everywhere). The Astral Spirit (The Heavenly Part of the Matter) is discussed elsewhere in the book (using common fire as an agent of corporification). Then come the imbibitions...

    I don't recall any indications/hints in 'Naturweg' for copperas from marcasite. Whenever you have time, perhaps you could locate the passage, if so inclined.

    Thanks.
