    It is both: what is it? It's a "medicine" or "elixir". What does it do? It changes many times its own weight of base metals into silver and gold.

    Thats an easy one. Crystallic salt. Red in colour. Very heavy. Dissolves in any liquor and melts in a low temp. Transmutes many time its own weight of the imperfect metals to gold.

    It is liquid, it is clear, it is a solvent, it is wet, it is vital for life, it boils at 100c at sea level, 70% of the Earth is covered in it...all these things describe attributes of water but not what water is. Water is a bipolar molecule consisting of two hydrogen atoms asymmetrically fused to one Oxygen atom.

    What is the philosophers stone, do you know what you are looking for?

    Yes Black we are all here to learn we came here with no material possessions, we will all leave this place with no material possessions, gold is a fools game...however what would happen if someone possessing the stone was to double the worlds stock of gold? What would it do to those greedy international bankers who have spent many lifetimes trying to subjugate others.

    A medicine to heal the world. Of all the Alchemists who have gone before why if it could be used in this way have they all failed to save humanity...did they conclude humanity is not worth saving or maybe some are and some are not?

    Those greedy international bankers are part of this multifaceted world.

    We have all played many parts in our long spiritual evolution on this planet.

    Some souls are just starting here ... some are about to finally leave to
    move on to another aspect of their evolution.

    This reality is not all good or bad, black or white ... There are specific
    reasons for everything that happens here for each and every one of us
    to work through in the attainment of understanding so we can evolve.

    From what I have read, only those that can be trusted will be Divinely
    Gifted with the Philosophers Stone.

    Probably why no Alchemists have pulled down those greedy bankers.

    IMHO.

    If the production of gold doubled and the demand for gold stay the same, the logical conclusion is that the price of gold will be reduced in half. It will do quite a damage to those who have invested big sums of their capital in precious metals, but I believe that the financial system as a whole will recover sooner or later and stay the same as it is now.

    Save the humanity from what? From illnesses? Or do you really believe that those who discovered the philosophers stone are immortals and live from the early medieval period till our modern era?

    Many alchemists have alluded to the philosophers stone not only being a substance that can cure illness but also enlighten the mind. The true predicament humans need saving from is their own ignorance. If the stone has this attribute whats to stop it being used for the enlightenment of the masses?
