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.
From ancient Egypt, “All came from an Egg.” The shell of the egg is Heaven (Massey), the contents earth. Anciently anything liquid was considered, a Water!
And the earth was without form, (no ordered process) and void; (empty of Soul and Spirit) and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. -Note Spirit is something tied to the God - We always believed we received Spirit from God but that is not True, we receive it through the creation process. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. -Light was both the sun and the moon, two waters as all parts of the creation was understood as a water. It was not a single light of creation as was thought and taught.- And God saw the light, that it was Good: -This is very important to understand, The Good in the light is what we can catch by process and so perfect matter. That Good was a part of God and so perfect! The ancients knew of what was here when they compiled Genesis. They didn’t make up anything, all of it is from what we have today outside. If it was not that way, they could not make the stone, and neither could you! Genesis is simply about the “All” outside! -and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. -Now, the light was Good also has to do with Spirit and Soul. In the sun we receive Spirit, male, perfection, gold, etc. In the moon, known as a reflection, we receive Soul, female, silver, a lesser light. This is where Spirit and Soul come from to man! Now men have changed that understanding for their own purposes, but, originally this is where from and how understood!
And the evening and the morning were the first day.
-This also is important to understand. The Day is based on one cycle of the moon. It is one of the lights, (waters above) and so needs to be understood as it is, a cycle for one day of Creation. Consider as described, morning to evening, see as waxing and waning as the moon goes through its phases.- also, from Ancient Egypt, they saw the earth as “Two Earths.” This is to us two hemispheres, the northern and the southern. The first Six Days created and now recreates the northern hemisphere, then the next six days recreates the southern hemisphere. Genesis is an ongoing process, still working today. If it was not, you couldn’t use it and so make the stone.
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. -Note plural and plural. That means more than one water above, more than one water below.- And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament (earth within the heaven or shell) from the waters which were above the firmament (sun and moon and stars), and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. -Note, heaven was created on the First Day and I described it as the shell of an egg. The Firmament is different but called the same, heaven. What this means is, and is tied to what we know of as PHI. Many shapes contain PHI. Every seed, shuck, shell, etc. It is the way things grow on earth. It is tied to a Principle. Heaven and firmament are of the same principle, but can look entirely different. A shell and a pyramid do not look the same, but to nature they are.
And the evening and the morning was the second day.
And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. -Note, this proves the shell and earth, egg design for the waters to come together in one place. They have to come together within the heaven (shell) of the egg. The light has to shine through the shell to be within! And God called the dry land Earth; -note dry land, first it was not dry land, it was a type of water. and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: -Note that from the waters originally created, water was also produced by the process. This is water as you understand it, not as a water of the creation. and God saw that it was good. -Note, first the earth was void! Now it is good, and means finished and will do what God wants of it. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. -This explains what the purpose of the earth was after being recreated within the firmament Now it is fruitful, and will multiply what is placed within or on it. This is the same for the stone when it is finished!
And the evening and the morning were the third day.
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.
Alchemy is actually easy. Consider outside and making compost. We gather leaves, (First Day or step), We put them in a place (Firmament, second step) where they can be worked on by nature (third step). But, it is the sun and moon (waters above) that causes the reaction over time. Now think about this. After a while you have made androgynous material (compost). You have done the same thing as I do, but you are not using Art! Also, your now finished with your compost. See what nature makes in just a few short months? What if you do as I do with nature, I place it back into the firmament and reprocess it again and again over time. You may think that compost is the end of the line, but it is not. The lights are always adding something to the matters, all one needs to know is how to do it in the right way. Your compost remember has no seed, it can be nothing! Sure, it will help other living things to grow, but by itself it can never be anything. The sun, in alchemical material is also described as having within it, “The Seed for Gold.” do you think that by Art I can put that seed into the matter?
