For the web pg. I want briefly to explain what needs to be understood about Genesis. There is a complete explanation in my book and on my Forum. Genesis is from Ancient Egypt to us through Moses. I believe it was written being tied to the conditions of that area throughout the yearly cycle. In their Beginning, all was waters. In Ancient Egypt, the start of their year was in the summer when the Nile flooded and all was covered basically with water. Their spring when everything started to grow was to them the Third Day. Also, to their area, the Sixth Day was the finish of the Garden, the plants had matured. Thus in a Creation Epic, man could be created at that time as there was a place for him to live and food to eat. Genesis according to Alchemists is the most important book ever written about Alchemy. Why is because we use Genesis to work with and recreate matter. We use though only the First Three Days, and then use the Third Day over. As alchemy is an Art, we can and do pick and choose what forces (waters) we need to copy and perfect the matter. Your from outside, nature over time, try to see it as a system of forces man can learn to use. That is why Alchemy was called “The Great Work,” man could do as God did! He can recreate matter perfect by using nature. Originally, that is what alchemy was about. A search for God through Nature. What else did they have? The Perfection of the Stone proved to the ancients that they had found proof of a God, and that they found a way to resurrect the man perfect. Thus organized religion was born as the process was simply turned on the man! This was different from what man had (prior religious belief system), the rustling of the Wind, Thunder, Fire, and other misunderstanding of nature. Man could hold in his hand proof of God, man could know of him! Man found the only God ever through a study of nature. The Secret Societies tend to the “Natural God.” The Alchemists also. You will have to decide for yourself what is Truth!
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Some notes needed to be understood. Probably on any day of the week on TV you can find discussion of the Creation and Adam and Eve being discussed. Adam was Created androgynous. That means both male and female. That understanding comes from ancient Philosophers or Holy men discussing this understanding. If the earth was understood to be created by the sun (male) and moon (female) then those two aspects were put into the dry land earth. Adam was made from that dry land and so he was as described. That is why Eve could be made from a part of him, he was both male and female! There are many ties to Genesis and this understanding I have explained. I also said that in alchemy, we are only interested in the First Three Days of the Creation with process for the stone. We make the dry land, we dry it in moonlight (ART), we then will regenerate it or augment it by more of the same process , so that by understanding Genesis you can perfect it. How do we do that? Understand and reread what I have said. Alchemy is Art! We select what forces we use from Nature. After we make earth, it is not perfect, we augment it and then after it reaches a different more advanced state than earth created originally, we perfect it by uniting it with just sunlight. Did I not say God created two lights, the sun #1 had a part of God within, the moon #2 is a reflection. If I could process the augmented matter with just sunlight, and just capture the part of God (Perfection) and put that into the matter, would I not perfect the matter? That is the big question, and what alchemy is based on originally! Art, Perfection, the Tree of Knowledge, process and forces of nature. Probably most interesting is what I said about Philosophers and Holy men and what and how they discussed and so came up with. We will as material is presented return many times to this process. The part about man being created “not perfect,” but from plain old Earth. But, perfection is possible! Consider as others of the past did, what was man as he was created. Why wasn’t he created perfect? What is the tie of the Tree of Knowledge, and the Pyramid known as (in some ancient circles), “The Holy Mountain.” In alchemy (its known as), The Mountain or Little Mountains or oven of the Philosophers. You see, according to G. Massey, the Tree is linked to a Mountain! Consider the Serpent in the Creation Epic, it was he that pointed man through Eve to the Tree (Oven) and to knowledge. Was that knowledge what the ancients used to point you to alchemy today? Is the Forbidden Fruit the same matter as the perfected Matter of the Stone? If you will learn everything from this site, my book and forum, you will know, as I believe that it is.
