    Hi Black.
    Thanks, but I know Urbigerous. I have over 400 Alchemy books ... but I still haven't got an understanding of our Second Mercury.
    Could you give me some quotations about this question in Urbigerous's book.
    My best regards
    Manfrid

    Hello Manfrid

    The very beggining of Aphorismi Urbigerani

    Aphorismi Urbigerani, Or Certain Rules, Clearly demonstrating the Three Infallible Ways of Preparing the Grand Elixir or Circulatum Majus of the Philosophers..London, 1690.

    To our Dear Disciples, Honor'd Co adepts, and all Well-Wishers to our Hermetic Art.

    Finding you, dear Sons who have through our means attained to the true knowledge of our first Matter, worthy to receive our farther Instructions in the remainder of the Process, to extirpate all such Ambiguities, as you may have conceived in our Absence, to facilitate your Labours, and to precaution you in the bringing your Work to its Highest Perfection.
    My understanding is that you are a very spiritual man Manfrid.

    Would this be correct ?

    The second Mercury is nothing other than the first mercury, but in a very pure and spiritualized state. This is obtained through the eagles.

    Hi Illen

    What makes it so complicated is that there are several Mercuries that can be used
    to obtain different results for what the Alchemist is pursuing.

    It would appear that Manfrid is trying to learn about one of these more Determined
    Mercuries.

    We need to have the Understanding of All the Mercuries to be able to follow the
    plan of The Great Work.

    Hi Black

    I think that's the very problem. There is only ONE mercury, yet it is given a different name for each stage of its progression. The mercury itself never changes - only its degree of purity and form. So it's really the coat of dregs and the amount that changes its name. When it's covered with filth, it's considered despicable and compared to Saturn. After it has flown the Eagles, it is pure and becomes our Mercury. After the Queen dissolves the King and extracts his seed, it becomes our gold.

    So, rather than try to understand All the Mercuries, I believe you need to change your thinking and only focus on only one Mercury - that's all there is. When you understand that, everything gets much more understandable.

    Thus, as I said above, The second Mercury is nothing other than the first mercury, but in a very pure and spiritualized state. This is obtained through the eagles.

    Alchemy consists of nothing else than attracting/extracting Mercury, purifying it, and turning it into our gold through the metallic seed.

    Ripley backs this take up i think. Augmentation of mercury brings up more names for it.
    I cant link on my phone but its my favourite text.

    Extract the dry core of mercury according to guladas.

    Clipping the wings. Cutting the feet. Fixing mercury.

    Illen is right. You cant escape the conclusion if you pursue alchemy

    " New jerusalem is built on clear transparent gold ".

    Yes Illen you have some good points here for me to consider.

    It may be all the same ... just looks different through our personal filters from
    the books that each of us have read.
