    Androgynus, the one you posted, Immortality or, with it's British title, The Wisdom of the Crocodile is one of my favorite films! I enjoyed the scenes of his hidden room, very symbolic of the occult. The door itself seems to open requiring of both left and right hand, dramatized like a spreading of the wing of a creature.

    There's speaking of dew, spring moisture, urine, as carriers of vital force or universal fire on this Forum, this film, clearly, dramatizes blood as the substance that holds the key for immortality. Here we go again with animal alchemy?

    Thanks for the thought down on my memory-lane.

    I highly recommend the following movies, not only for the Alchemical and/or Philosophical twists...

    The Nines



    The Mysterious Stranger



    The Man From Earth



    Donnie Darko

    Watched the man from earth last night. That was fun.

    I've been thinking and seeing about the train station Neo was trapped in in the Matrix...
    it's alchemically significant. Real power comes after one can free themselves from the train station,
    and the SM.

    Do you mean that real power comes from SM, or from freeing oneself from it? (Actually, I can relate to it either way )

    The train station is kind of Ouroboros-like, isn't it?

    Yeah - I meant to be able to free the SM from its train station prison.
    And free the soul from its cage as well.
    Not that I think this is how it should be... thus I say "to be able to..."
    Vacuums and skeletons are interdependent and complimentary...
    alchemy is one possible way, not the right way. etc,.

    skeleton/prison/earth/calcium phosphate/thigh bone/cage/nest...

    interesting word of the day: soma
    soma as greek = body. recall Plato's "soma-sema"/body-prison/sepulchre...
    soma is also a cell wall/skeleton (endo/exo)...
    soma is also the food of the gods...

    Just finished watching it... Knocked me down senseless

    Maybe this is the needed precursor for returning to our telepathic abilities?
