    Hi Mr. Mixer

    I have this feeling that there is "no time" there.

    Hi JDP

    If you met this guy one night on a dark and lonely road, you probably
    wouldn't be laughing so hard .... or maybe you would ?

    Reminds me of this being, from the fictional Game of Thrones universe, which no doubt has its inspirations from our actual varying myths/religions.

    One fatal tree there stands of knowledge called, forbidden them to taste. Knowledge forbidden? Suspicious. Reasonless. And why should their Lord envy them that? Can it be sin to know? Can it be death? And do they stand by ignorance, is that their happy state, the proof of their obedience and their faith?

    Ive heard there is no time here. Only a loss of inertia expressed in a procestional toroidal hyperbaloid, or magnetism.

    Thanks Seth-Ra

    This video stirs the thoughts into many possibilities .... or perhaps just one.

    But where do we find the ANSWERS ? .... where do we find the TRUTH ?

    My understanding is that we suffer from a limited consciousness.

    I live in hope that Alchemy can give us more than just gold and a panacea,
    these are of small value compared to wisdom/truth.

    I think it was the Great Alchemist King Solomon that had something to
    say about that.

    A spirit once told me that we can step out of time perpendicular to the illusion
    of linear time .... a bit like stepping off of a merry go round and running forwards
    or backwards as the merry go round continues at its same speed.

    There are no answers, only replies - or more questions in disguise. On my own website, I changed the title of the Q&A page to Q&R.

    "Truth" can not be found, and even less can it be spoken. Truth can only be "been".

    My understanding is that our limitless consciousness suffers from an intoxication with useless crap/complexities/superfluities.

    Quoth Solomon:

    I reflected on everything that is accomplished by man on earth, and I concluded: Everything he has accomplished is futile — like chasing the wind!
    We are "Aqua Permanens", the permanent water, but this water turns muddy and toxic because of all the dissolved crap it acquires along the way. On top of that, we also tend to identify with the shapes of the vessels that we (as the permanent water) occupy at any given "time", thus further inhibiting our Knowing of what is (as opposed to what appears to be).

    The vessels of "identity" must be discarded, and the dissolved crap must be either left behind via the fires of rectification, or its foul nature be transmuted into the nature of Aqua Permanens

    Hello Mr. Andro

    Much thought I will have to give to what you have brought to the table.

    It sounds like we need a good dose of Alchemical flocculating agent to help
    clear our waters.

    This sentence that you wrote does have a certain alchemic ring to it, " The vessels of "identity" must be discarded, and the dissolved crap must be either left behind via the fires of rectification, or its foul nature be transmuted into the nature of Aqua Permanens".

    Sometimes I'm deeply moved by some alchemic writings .... almost to tears.

    Do you ever find the feeling of truth in a piece of Alchemic prose/verse ?

    Yes Ghislain perhaps that's what he meant .... just leave this world
    and you exit linear time.
