    From a certain perspective, the Philosopher's Stone stands for an attainment that heals and transcends those things humans are typically suffering from, both externally and internally.
    One could argue that to some the stone, or it's symbol in one's mind seems to be like a very suitable and nourishing surface for one's very own projections, which indeed can have similarities of what others may project on or in it.

    Some non-alchemists for example project their personal yearnings on the grail, or a new love affair, which can basically be the same process and doesn't necessarily has much to do with the stone at first sight.

    BTW Michael, your inbox is full since quite some time now

    In his (for readers of German) very recommendable book Unsere 6 Dimensionale Welt: Wissenschaftsverständnis von Magie, Mystik und Alchemie, Illobrand von Ludwiger indeed suggests that the Philosopher's Stone is imprinted with the 'projections' of its manufacturer.

    Inbox partially cleared.

    When I see post like this I wish I could read German.

    It makes me wonder how this would effect the workings of The Stone.

    Did he write anything else about this ?

    As far as I remember, there was some more, but it was years ago that I read this, so I better look up what he said exactly.

    I might be too busy for that the next few days, but I will get back to you soon.
