I’ve been all over the place lately, and haven’t been posting here very much. Hopefully that will change in the new year. I foresee a lot of new content in 2018.
Alchemy is an ancient practice that can be considered in part as a precursor to chemistry. However, like Freemasonry, it can be said to have both a speculative and an operative side. While “operative” alchemy deals with the transformation of base metals into gold, “speculative” alchemy uses similar symbolism, allegory, and language to speak of spiritual truths and a path to inner light and wisdom.
