    By this premise, Everything could never ever be ''One Thing'' ever because everywhere in nature consists of several different things that make up One Thing individually i.e molecules, elements and so forth.

    I think what's special about Alchemy is that it teaches how Everything becomes One Thing individually, this is how Transmutation works for metals, and why the Stone bestows Immortality on the User, by Transmuting itself into Any Thing the body needs.

    Salt, Sulfur, Mercury are One Thing but in Proportion something that is most certainly found in Nature, like the Human vessel and the Astral Body, all is one but in Proportion (Above and Below, Heaven and Earth, Subtle and Gross).

    he took one of the man’s ribs[g] and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib[h] he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

    Genesis 2:4-3:24
    23 The man said,
    “This is now bone of my bones
    and flesh of my flesh;
    she shall be called ‘woman,’
    for she was taken out of man.”
    24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.


    ADAM means Red Earth and just like the Philosophers' Stone, or any OTHER living thing, LIFE which is what Eve's name means must be involved in order to ANIMATE the MATTER and make it ALIVE. Two becomes One. Otherwise, our vessels are no different than a rock, or ANY other INORGANIC thing.

    Just like a Sun as it's self-sufficient but even though the Sun is regarded as a Male principal, just like MALES we too have Female principals inside of us as well. Where there is Yang there is also Yin but in PROPORTION. This is why it's possible for Humans to be either Masculine or Feminine when one of these Principals dominate the other.

    It takes Two of these forces to create One (Sol, Elixir of Life). The Sun doesn't rely on the Moon, but the Sun still operates on the Yin and Yang principals, but the Sun being masculine, the Yang forces is dominant but Yin is still very well present.

    Thus the Operation of Sol is Complete.
    Awesome, thanks for sharing.

    'Each soul and spirit prior to its entering into this world, consists of a male and female united into one being. When it descends on this earth the two parts separate and animate two different bodies. At the time of marriage, the Holy One, blessed be He, who knows all souls and spirits, unites them again as they were before, and they again constitute one body and one soul, forming as it were the right and left of one individual.... The union, however, is influenced by the deeds of the man, and by the ways in which he walks. If the man is pure, and his conduct is pleasing in the sight of God, he is united with that female part of his soul which was his component part prior to his birth.'
    - Zohar 1:91b

    ..the marriage between man and wife being a lower reflection of this higher principal.

    Rev. 19:

    The Marriage Supper of the Lamb
    6 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,

    “Hallelujah!
    For the Lord our God
    the Almighty reigns.
    7 Let us rejoice and exult
    and give him the glory,
    for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
    and his Bride has made herself ready;
    8 it was granted her to clothe herself
    with fine linen, bright and pure”—

    for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.

    9 And the angel said[a] to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.”

    THE Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkruetz

    Come to the Wedding!
    You Are Cordially Invited to a Royal Wedding!
    Today – today – today
    is the wedding of the King.
    If you are born for this,
    Chosen by God for joy,
    You may ascend the mount
    Whereon three temples stand
    And see the Thing yourself.
    Take heed,
    Observe yourself!
    If you’re not clean enough,
    The wedding can work ill.
    Perjure here at your peril;
    He who is light, beware!

    In Kabbalah, this is the union of Tiferet and Shekhinah. Tiferet/Metatron correspond to the Sun.

    One more:

    Truth did not come into the world naked, but it came in types and images. The world will not receive truth in any other way. There is a rebirth and an image of rebirth. It is certainly necessary to be born again through the image. Which one? Resurrection. The image must rise again through the image. The bridal chamber and the image must enter through the image into the truth: this is the restoration. Not only must those who produce the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, do so, but have produced them for you. If one does not acquire them, the name ('Christian') will also be taken from him. But one receives the unction of the [...] of the power of the cross. This power the apostles called 'the right and the left.' For this person is no longer a Christian but a Christ.
    - Gospel of Philip
    The "name" mentioned is not "Christian", but the "new name" that is mentioned in Revelations, that the one who "conquers" will receive.


    Adam/Red Earth is interpreted by some to be a corruption of older myths (sumerian, maybe babylonian) wherein humans are created from blood clots (I think maybe in clay, can't remember off the top of my head)

    That is very interesting about the blood clot reference. Doing some research came across this.

    Surah 96 Al-'Alaq, Ayat 1-5

    "Recite in the name of your Lord Who created, created man from a clot of congealed blood. Recite and your Lord is Most Generous, Who taught by the pen, taught man what he did not know"


    Also found an old version of the wedding letter if anyone is interested.

    ... LIGHT THAT WEIGHS

    every particle of light in the universe is made up of an electric wave and magnetic wave at cross angles. This is called the Poynting Vector. It is the direction of light (or any electromagnetic wave).

    The male, sulfur, or magnetic crosses the female , mercury, or electric, yielding the cross product. This yield is the true matter, just as when you cross vulgar mercury Hg with vulgar sulfur S, your yield is HgS, or a kind of SALT.

    William Cooper's republishing in English goes beyond the Fraternity's original intention by appending Dee's Monas Hieroglyphica. But this is not without merit, since Dee's Theorem XX contains the same thrust - the Quaternity (the two crossed lines whose extremities represent the four elements) becomes the Trinity THROUGH THE CROSS (ie a perpendicular axis extending up and down from the point, creating a system of three axes):

    "This point is not superfluous within the Divine Trinity, yet when considered, on the other hand, within the Kingdom of the four Elements it is black, therefore corruptible and watery. O thrice and four times happy, the man who attains this (almost copulative) point in the Ternary, and rejects and removes that sombre and superfluous part of the Quaternary, the source of vague shadows. Thus after some effort we obtain the white vestments brilliant as the snow."

    The vague shadows electric, magnetic. The white vestments brilliant - light !

    This is a pre-Maxwellian knowledge of advanced physics by a quarter millennium given Dee's, Boehme's, and the FRC's early writings.
