“I'm Different, do not let that scare you” (Paracelsus)
Alchemy is too often depicted as the work of dreamers and pseudo-scientists, alchemy, however
arose at the awakening of human thinking.
Alchemy is the knowledge, hidden and visible, of the transformation and transmutation of man, what is symbolized by the transformation of the Prima Materia to the Alchemical Gold.
The Philosopher's Stone, the Elixir of Life that makes immortal, the making of Gold,
