The Emerald Tablet is said to be an ancient tablet of emerald or green stone inscribed with the secrets of the universe. Did it really exist, and if so, what hidden truths were really contained within its cryptic text?

The origins of Western alchemy can be traced back to Hellenistic Egypt, in particular to the city of Alexandria. One of the most important characters in the mythology of alchemy is Hermes Trismegistus

Musician and advocate Bob Geldof examines the life and work of one of the 20th century's greatest poets, William Butler Yeats. Geldof argues that as a poet and statesman, at the vanguard of a cultural revolution, Yeats brought about immense change in Ireland's struggle for independence, without firing a bullet. Written by Geldof and Roy Foster, this incisive and moving documentary features readings by Bill Nighy, Van Morrison, Richard E Grant, Co...

I did this when I watched the first series, and I find myself doing it again with brotherhood. I can't help but compare the representation of alchemy in this anime, with the real life occult. Despite what most people usually thought, Alchemy was never rooted in magic, mysticism, or spirituality, nor did the real life practitioners of the art claim it to be. It was in fact an actual science, and still exists today. We know it today as "Chemistry" which the anime hits right on the nail from the very start.

Alchemy was a movement that originated in ancient Egypt, who passed their teachings on to anyone in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East who were interested, during the medieval period. Medieval scientists from Germany(Which the setting of Fullmetal alchemist is based on), Ireland, England, Russia, Italy, Turkey, Iran, China, and India, were the usual ones who gained interest in it.

The Egyptian priests were the ones who discovered and gained an interest in the chemical make up of different things, when obeserving Metallurgy. They noticed how blacksmiths would first break down a metallic stone found within the earth, only to convert it into a strong metal and forge other objects from them like weapons, tools, and jewelry. These priests hypothesized that if this could be done with metal, than any material could be converted into another. 

Centuries later as the teachings of alchemy spread, scientists began to discover other elements and combining chemicals. Most of the elements we have today on our periodic table, were discovered by alchemists. However some of the things they wished to do like transmuting one element into a completely different one was something, although possible, they did not have the technological advancements to do in that time period. Unlike today's scientists who have actually achieved that. Real life alchemists never used anything like transmutation circles, they worked with chemicals and materials in a similar way as modern scientists.

The concept of gaining eternal life and transmuting humans, as seen in the anime, actually came from the alchemy branch in India, which no one took seriously and rightfully so. Those scientists in particular were total nutcases. The concept of Alkahestry also existed, and was the Chinese and branch's main focus(which is why some of the alkahests in Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood are Chinese) 

The real life Alkahestry was actually the art of deconstruction. The real life Alchemists wanted to invent a material called the philosopher stone, which was not a stone that could do anything like in the anime, but it was a stone that could be converted into any form of matter. The Alkahests wanted to invent the opposite of the philospher stone. Alkahests wanted to invent a fluid called Alkahest Which could break down and destroy almost any material including gold and diamond. Unlike the Alchemists, the Alkahests actually succeeded at creating the fluid. However it wasn't China's branch of Alkahests who did it, but 3 Muslim Alchemists who studied Alkahestry.

The Muslim Alchemists who invented Alkahest were Jabir Ibn Hayyan, Al-Kindi, and Muhammad Ibn Zakariya Razi. They each invented 3 forms of the fluid, which we know today as hydrochloric acid, Sulfuric acid, and Nitric acid. 3 deadly acids that can burn through almost anything. As for the Philosopher Stone, today's chemists and Geophysicists doubt it is something that can be invented, but theorize that phosphorus is the key to changing one material into another, seeing as phosphorus is the one chemical that has been found in nearly all material, including living organisms.

Human are not in control, we are nature, we are the will and the energy of plants and trees in non dual streamlined communication. They are us, we are them, there is no duality. Keep your filters clean so as not to block or distort the signal, the current is strong #nature #symbiosis #rebirth

Maat was a female goddess in the ancient Egyptian religion who represented truth, justice, balance and morality. The daughter of the Egyptian sun deity Ra and wife of the moon god Thoth, she served a kind of spirit of justice to the Egyptians. She decided whether a person would successfully reach the afterlife, by weighing their soul against her feather of truth, and was the personification of the cosmic order and a representation of the stability of the universe.

“The universal mind is not only intelligence, but it is substance, and this substance is the attractive force which brings electrons together by the law of attraction so they form atoms; the atoms in turn are brought together by the same law and form molecules; molecules take objective forms and so we find that the law is the creative force behind every manifestation, not only of atoms, but of worlds, of the universe, of everything of which the imagination can form any conception.”

THE GREAT QUESTION “WHY”

The great question “Why” has forever been upon his lips. Few indeed have been able to answer this question; and these few have been passed by, unheeded, in the struggle for existence.

Man has struggled along the weary road with a heavy heart and bleeding feet, only to be met by the grave. The lack of a sense of completion has beset his every pathway; and in his blind groping he has held up his hands in speechless anguish, and his broken cries have rent the air with supplications to an apparently unheeding Deity.

Why the suffering, the sorrow, the sin, the sickness and a lifetime of trouble, only to be met at last by the grim and sinister tomb?
Why, why, why? Man has sought the wise only to discover their foolishness; he has sought the learned only to find a lack of wisdom. Why, why, why? His cry has appeared to go forth into an empty nothingness. But hark! from somewhere a vague answer has come, some subtle inner sense of things; some unknown presence has given answer and a still small voice has said to him, “Man, KNOW THYSELF.”

The Instinctive Man has again spoken and told him to search more deeply into his own nature; to look deep within himself for the answer to life. The hour has struck in the evolution of man when he can understand this voice and do its bidding.
