    The Hebrew root A-D-M can direct us either to ADAM (Man), ADAMAH (Earth/Clay), DAM (Blood) or ADOM (Red).
    Yes I guess to be more correct Adam is the red man (our king) made from clay Adamah....so clay just means the same as Earth or the matter from which the stone is composed.

    I was able to understand what he meant since I was already aware of the same thing in Alchemy. Such is not the case with everyone. I accept that he offers information previously unknown. Eg: Elixir stuff. You don't mix Arcanum duplicatum with Philosopher's Gold & Mercury which is what he wrote. So, I know he was being extremely cryptic & it meant something else.

    Yes, via supernatural means. Think of Christ on earth to understand what I am talking about. Such is the case with every Adept.

    The same moderate course must be adopted in the fiery regimen of our Magistery. For it is all important that the liquid should not be dried up too quickly, and that the earth of the Sages should not be melted and dissolved too soon, otherwise your fishes would be changed into scorpions. If you would perform our task rightly, take the spiritual water, in which the spirit was from the beginning, and preserve it in a closely shut chamber. For the heavenly city is about to be besieged by earthly foes. You must, therefore, strongly fortify it with three impassable and well-guarded walls, and let the one entrance be well protected. Then light the lamp of wisdom and seek with it the gross thing that was lost, shewing only such light as is needed. For you must know that the worms and reptiles dwell in the cold and humid earth, while man has his proper habitation upon the face of the earth; the bodies of angels, on the other hand, not being alloyed with sin or impurity, are injured by no extreme either of heat or cold. When man shall have been glorified, his body will become like the angelic body in this respect. If we carefully cultivate the life of our souls, we shall be sons and heirs of God, and shall be able to do that which now seems impossible. But this can be effected only by the drying up of all water, and the purging of heaven and earth and all men with fire

    It is possible that a Moses / Merlin type figure could call down the wrath of heaven upon the sinners...ever heard of Kalki ?

    Ah another topic where scams abound. If you read Kalki purana, they have glorified him & talked of impossible stuff regarding his surroundings. This is why I have an intense disregard for the Hindu religion.

    You may read upon the following things to get the nature of his true surroundings:
    1. 2 Sam 7
    2. Psalm 2, 72, 89 (45 also if you want to hear some over the top praise)
    3. Isa 40 - end (it flip flops between Christ & this guy.
    4. Jeremiah
    5. Zechariah
    6. Ezekial, Revelation, Book of Enoch
    7. Catholic Great Monarch / Last Roman Emperor prophecy (Catholic Prophecy) (St Francis of Paola very detailed)
    8. Ratu Adil prophecy
    9. Satrio Piningit prophecy
    10. Thomas Norton, Paracelsus, Philalethes, Fulcanelli prophecy, In alchemical circles he is called Elias Artista.

    To summarise, he will lead a fucked up life before being bailed out in the nick of time unlike the glorified life written in Kalki Purana.

    Comte de Gabalis

    We have only to concentrate the Fire of the World in a globe of crystal, by means of concave mirrors; and this is the art which all the ancients religiously concealed, and which the divine Theophrastus discovered. A Solar Powder is formed in this globe, which being purified in itself and freed from any admixture of the other Elements, and being prepared according to the Art, becomes in a very short time supremely fitted to exalt the Fire which is in us, and to make us become, as it were, of an igneous nature.
    Source: http://www.sacred-texts.com/eso/cdg/cdg05.htm

    Comments: The mirror must be of special nature besides being concave. Which mirror was he talking about? Vulgar or the Art?

    Another question to ponder, What is the mirror of the Art?

    Mutus Liber - Altus & Magophon



    Plate Three

    The third plate is no longer in its place. It leads us into the empire of Neptune. One sees, frolicking in his waves, the dolphin dear to Apollo and on a boat some fishermen putting out their gear. In another ship a man lies stretched out in a nonchalant position. In the second, a landscape with on one side a ram, on the other a bull, which we shall find back further on and shall study at a more opportune moment. Below on the left a woman holds a basket which is the symbol of the grated lantern of the philosophers; on the right a man throws his (fish) line into the ocean which is found within the third circle (the one that encloses the two others). The third circle is animated by a flock of birds to the left; a siren below and Amphitrite up on top. In the margin the sun and the moon, and hovering over this nautical scene, Jupiter carried by his eagle. This whole figure aims at showing that the operator must deploy all his faculties and put to work all the resources of the art in order to capture the mystical fish, about which d’Espagnet speaks.

    The author should first have instructed us how to weave the thread necessary for this miraculous fishing. Let us amend his omission: The weir must be braided in a very fine maze from asbestos, which has the property of being incombustible and of staying unaltered. The device being well disposed in the deep waters, one must furnish oneself with a lantern whose luster will attract the prey into the nets. One may also, following other symbols, employ a line; but the arcanum is in the preparation of the pocket, and the word is circumstantial, for it concerns nothing less than to catch the golden fish.

    One will find the secret of this operation in a classical work under the title Ariadnes Thread, for we cannot review the procedure in a few lines within this restricted framework. Concerning the method of lighting the magic lantern indicated by the basket, it is only described in some very rare works, and in a confused manner. Hence we must say a few words about that:

    Certain authors, and not the lesser ones, have pretended that the greatest operative artifice consists in capturing a solar ray, and to imprison it in a flask closed with the seal of Hermes. This gross image has caused rejection of the operation as something ridiculous and impossible. And yet, it is literally true, to the degree that the image coincides with reality. It is moreover unbelievable that one should not have thought of it. This miracle is accomplished in a way by the photographer when he makes use of a sensitive plate which one prepares in different ways. In the Typus Mundi, edited in the XVIIth century by the Fr. of the Society of Jesus, one sees an apparatus, described also by Tiphaigne de Laroche, by means of which one can steal the Heavenly fire and fix it. One can no longer say that the procedure is scientific, and we candidly declare that we are here revealing, if not a great mystery, at least its application to practical philosophy.


    The eagles that are flying to the left, inside the great circle are designating the sublimations of the mercury. One needs from three to seven for the Moon, and from seven to ten for the Sun. They are indicated by the flying of the birds and are indispensable, for they prepare the nuptial robe of Apollo and Diana, without which their mystical union would be impossible. That is why Jupiter, the God who governs the eagle, presides over these operations.


    Plate Four

    The fourth plate shows how the collection of the flos coeli works. Some sheets are stretched out on poles in order to receive the heavenly dew. Below a man and a woman are wringing them to press out the divine liquor, that falls into a large vessel put there to that purpose. To the left one sees the Ram; on the right the Bull.

    The flos coeli have put the spirit of the bad puffers to torture. Some have seen in it a kind of magical influx, for to them magic is a supernatural power, acquired by concourse with spirits, good or bad. Others, more realistic and closer to the truth, have recognized in it the morning dew. The flos coeli is in fact called the water of the two equinoxes, from which one has deduced that it is obtained in the spring and in the fall, and is a mixture of these two fluids. Again others, believing themselves still better informed, would collect this mysterious product from a kind of algae or lichenoid whose vulgar name is nostoc. In the Seven Hints on the Philosophic Work, Eteilla, who was perhaps more worth than his reputation, seems to have obtained some satisfactory results with an analogous moss; but one must read his tract with some good glasses.

    The Rosicrucians called themselves the “Brothers of the ripe Dew” according to the testimony of Thomas Corneille, a good hermetist as was his brother, the great tragic writer. Nevertheless, Philalethes scoffs disdainfully at the collectors of dew and rainwater, in which, notwithstanding, the Abbot of Vallemont recognized some virtue. It is up to the disciple to form his own opinion according to his own judgment. But it is beyond doubt that an agent kept secret, called “Celestial Manna” plays an important part in the work.

    We must declare, sincerely, that the Ram and the Bull in the plate, which one always takes for the signs of the zodiac under which one must collect the flos cli, have no connection with the astrological symbols. The Ram is Hermes’ Criophore, which is the same as Jupiter Ammon; and the Bull, whose horns delineate the crescent, attribute of Diana and Isis, who are identical with the cow Io, lover of Jupiter, and the philosophers moon. These two animals personify the two natures of the Stone. Their union forms the Azyme of the Egyptians, the Asimah of the Bible, hybrid monster designating the orichalc, the latten or bronze oryx, the bull of Phalaris or of bronze, the golden or chrysocale calf4, which differs, most certainly, from the pinchbeck5 of Mannheim and is in some ways akin to German silver6. Briefly put, it is the electrum of the poets; but one should properly understand this word, which encloses the magical arcanum. Philalethes teaches that the gold of the hermetists is certainly not similar to vulgar gold. Furthermore, we add that, according to mythology, the Stone devoured by Saturn was called betulus, which is, really, the same word as vitulus, calf in Latin, and as vitellus, the yolk of an egg. The dough of unleavened bread was its hieroglyph. The priests from the bank of the Nile never touched the sacrificial breads with any steel or iron cutting tool: that would have amounted to a case of sacrilege. From this derives the ancient custom, still in use, of breaking the bread. Likewise in the catholic rite, the officiating priest divides the host by means of the silver-gilt paten. This whole logomachy7 conceals the vermilion of the Sages, or the philosophic amalgam of mercury, gold and the silver of art, rendered indissoluble by the flos cli.

    One will learn, not without surprise, that bullfighting is a dramatic figuration of the Great Work. All games have a hermetic origin. The red cockade worn by the animal and to which is attached a prize bestowed upon the victor, is the image of the Rose of the philosophers. The grand concern is to be a good Matador. Also, according to Spanish tradition, “to accede to government, one must conquer the bull” - the mystic bull, evidently. This victory confers “chivalry”, true nobility, the one of Science, and consequently the scepter. This is why, under Louis XIII, the leaders of the “Kabbale d’Etat” were nicknamed “Matadors”. The species is not extinct, though obliterated and not apparent.

    Comments: It is a book that tests the mental ability of the reader IMO. Even a complete comprehension and understanding of the images leads one to pursue the longest and tiresome road involved with endless broileries. But there are hidden gems, I have highlighted the same. The non-highlighted parts are mainly concerned with the tiresome stuff.

    Saw this comment now, but maybe it's from years ago (It would be nice if the forum had dates, as to know when something was posted).
    You can add "Edom" to that list (the land of the Kings of Edom)... which also adds an interesting "counterpart" to that root.
    The ideas you mention are used in an explicit way by Bacstrom in his Aphorisms and Processes: http://www.levity.com/alchemy/bacsproc.html
    (Though I think he made a minor mistake by transliterating as Hadamah -Gen 2:7- and keeping that "H" which is only a prefix which doesn't make much sense when the intention is to bring it to another language... or MAYBE, but that's a wild speculation, he was trying to force a 55 instead of a 50 having the Gematria of the word in mind -Though that's a wild speculation... hard to tell why he kept that "H").

    But Bacstrom was consciously using all those "derivations" in that text and "linking" them.

    All posts have dates, except the most recent ones, from the past month or so... Look at older threads/posts, they all have dates.

    Somethings to ponder

    Most involved in Alchemy think that the only way to achieve the stone is through the initial fixation of mercury through violent fight (Dragon & Knight), followed by Doves of Diana, Green Lion & other BS. I don't deny such a possibility.

    But you need to think, have you ever seen Nature using violence during the growth phase in any of the 3 kingdoms. The answer is no. It is always sweet, simple and gentle. In the creation of Gold in the mine, same thing happens. So why should we do anything different. Why are we jumping through so many hoops? Think over it.

    Regarding the sages who recommend such things, remember they have all the time in the world and are simply BSing or involving themselves in a dick measuring contest as to who writes the most cryptic text. Don't follow them. To give an example of their maliciousness, Cyliani whose body suffered serious damage due to the fight still recommends & writes about it calling it a 'Duty'. Should we really follow such men?

    The sages being the Images/Sons of God, must be full of love, compassion & mercy and is that what you see in the writings or you see the opposite. The sages who write and recommend to go through Green Lion, Doves of Diana, White Eagle & other BS must be rejected for they are no better than the psycho & sociopathic banksters.

    Please don't fall for the crap & follow the simple path of Nature. I have highlighted such texts.
