    What is a puffer?

    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    A puffer is someone like me, who cant for the life of them rap their head around alchemy, and so they piss their money away on vain experiments that dont really clasify as alchemy in hope they will make life changing medicine or transmute gold.

    A wanna be Alchemist, who is not initiated.

    Mind you, we have a lot to thank the puffers for, such as the wonderful trillion dollar a year pharmaceutical industry that keeps those sickily poor people from getting their filth on us.

    Puffers are actually known by one of two definitions. Most commonly it is a mixture of those who "blow hot air" and "puff themselves up as to seem more than they are" (like a puffer fish) which in lay-mans terms means those who project false knowledge of Our Art.

    In an alternative and less common definition it means those whom seek not to change the hearts of men or seek spiritual connection, but just to amass material wealth from the practicing of Our Art.

    The origin of this term actually comes from the fact that these tireless seekers kept "blowing" their fires with bellows.

    How would you define "changing the hearts of men" and "spiritual connection"?

    This statement would imply that you have "true knowledge of our art", otherwise how would you be able to determine that there is "false knowledge" being projected here?

    I would say it is to change peoples desire from outward to inward. Spiritual connection is seeing that all things have link and bondage and thus to do unto one is to do unto another.

    Indeed. Not to say I am master of it, but knowledge has been gained that has been made quite practical.
