I want to now just go through the alchemy web site and copy many of the pictorial allegories that I think will be easy to understand, and those I need to use to show different things about our past. These I will give more of an explanation as to what they pertain to alchemically, and to the religion

Sixth woodcut from the series in Basil Valentine's Azoth.

This is about the androgynous material found in the process in September. September is a very important month! This "earth" is the Virgin Earth created in Genesis, Third Day. In alchemy this is the real, Septembers Child! In the religion this is where Osiris is reborn a babe! what becomes very important about this matter at this stage is the fact that man was created (it was believed) from this material. In the religion of Osiris, Osiris went on from this point to be further augmented, finally he united with God, Horus in the ancient religion to become a God. Many a Philosopher in the past must have discussed this part of the total understanding. Why wasn't man created perfect as Osiris became? Man here was brought forth with a lessor God! In the process, the matter is brought forth by the Two Sisters, the Moon and Virgo. The Moon was the second Eye of God, the lessor Eye! Man was created of an inferior substance. All the discussion found in the Gnostic Gospels tied to this point about Sophia, the evil, the lessor God she created, all of it can be traced to this part of the believed creation when you totally understand all of it. You also need to understand that in the Creation, the Serpent actually was a friend to man. He actually informed Eve if you will, that she could be more, like Osiris, if she ate of the Tree of Good and Evil, the Tree of Knowledge. Through knowledge the man and the woman could become as God! According to G. Massey, the Tree of knowledge was linked to a mountain. The Tree was protected in the Garden by Dragons and Griffons! In the tablets I use from "Abraham the Jew, he drew the (second tablet) as a mountain with a Dragon and a Griffon on the face of it. This is his way of telling you the Tree and mountain are connected, and the Mountain is the firmament, is the pyramid oven! with knowledge you also can learn how to use the oven and so make the medicine that will somehow open your eyes to more than what you are. We will visit the tablets of Abraham again!
In the above drawing please note. See the egg design? In the below circle, the cross, this is the river with four heads found, only in the oven! The small center circle is where we work below, understood as "on earth.' Note the seven symbols above, indication seven more month of work to do. Note the red and white "androgynous material" we have produced. Note the "compass and Square" of the Masons! In the below circle, note the outline of the pyramid oven. The four arm equal arm cross, this cross was worn in Red by the Templar's. It is tied to ancient Egyptian creation understanding and has to do with the suns movement east and west, north and south. As they understood it.

Woodcut from Andreas Libavius Commentariorum alchymiae.

This woodcut actually in a condensed way shows the whole process. Starting at the bottom, we see green which is a way of tying to nature. See the sun and lion, Moon and female. I have several times pointed out this meaning. First color of the matter, black. next, black and white just means again Septembers child or earth finished. See the crow, tied to the black, and the black and white at the next stage, see above the Serpent in a circle, means circulation again, and the three balls ties to the next part of the process which takes three months, first part of the seven. I have shown it divides into three and four. The man and woman, two stones from the sun and moon! Last, a fire or sun for the last part of the process. The white bird above is tied to 'Like." Like is how the two stones are formed. In the other series I can show the time for this to happen, 16 months as in the religion of Osiris which is celebrated over the same time period. The way the times of the stone were celebrated anciently as the process became a religion are still with us today. Each time of the process is important to understand to know why it was celebrated as it was. for example, in ancient Egypt, September was celebrated in one way as a time, "Death was Overcome." This was tied to a Serpent hanging on a Cross, and to the rebirth of Osiris. In the process it is when the earth came forth as dry land! Note, it was believed man was created from that earth at that stage.

Engraving 3 from Stefan Michelspacher Cabala, Spiegel der Kunst und Natur,

Note again Seven Steps tied to the last seven months of process. Note the Zodiac around the picture. Note the mountain design for the oven. Note the "earth air fire and water with the four balls around. G. Massey believed the Seven had to do with the Seven Stars overhead with what we now call the "Big Dipper." As you learn all I am trying to show it becomes evident the seven was not about those stars. I wanted to show this as the Zodiac is tied to it and that is not shown in many places. If you check my work, you will find that the Constellation of the Zodiac have word definitions tied to each. Those word definitions describe the process as it follows the cycle and different steps. That cannot be a coincidence and so means the constellations derived their description from the process. I point this out to show how old the process is! In many of the pictorial allegories you can find the symbols of the constellation if you look

A077. Alchemical heraldry from D. Lagneau Harmonie chymique, 1636.

Why I have these here is that they are a copy by an alchemist of the St. Thomas Shield. I have put these here to show again that many of the alchemists are showing the same work and process. I have explained the shield in depth, read that and then compare the way drawn. Both are a description of the process although these are harder to understand exactly what the alchemists is showing. The heart here in the middle would normally be the Rose. The heart is used when the alchemists wishes to link the work to Jesus. On the above, the third quadrant, on the left is the 3/2 ratio, on the right seven stalks of grain, both are tied to the same time period in the process. The upper right quadrant on the right above is different. Red is sun, green nature, the gold would indicate the suns light so means the same thing basically. Blue always has to do with moisture.

A050. Engraving from Musaeum hermeticum, Frankfurt, 1625.

This is about the second androgynous material being made for the Red Stone. See the Salamander on the top left corner, that happens at this time period. See the Three on the right top corner, this part is for three months of work. Note below the well, shows the work is below (on earth) under the egg shell! see how the forth child seems to be the divider. The lavender color is the end point. The two triangles and six pointed star say to "Bring the waters together, again." The mountain indicates the oven. Seven is just everywhere!

A111. Maria the Jewess from Maier Symbola aurea mensae, Franckfurt, 1617

You can find this design (around flowers) in the oven. Also, I always say to count if there is something to count. There are five flowers and so may, the fifth month is indicated. This is shown because it is the start of the "Third Day" in alchemy, bring the waters above and below together. Maria was said to be the Sister of Moses. Note the hill like a mountain, the place the waters are to come together within.

A118. Roger Bacon from Maier Symbola aurea mensae, Franckfurt, 1617.

The Scales are tied to October, and the Conjunction. Everything is in Balance, the waters are "again" coming together. This is when Osiris starts to become Crowned Androgynous material. The start for the White Stone, and further augmentation for the Red Stone. In ancient Egypt this was "Party Time." The people like the waters came together, "an orgy." What was going on above, went on below. Also in ancient Egypt, the Djed Pillar was raised with a "Tit and Lion cloth" tied to it. The Tit was for the Moon, the Lion Cloth the Sun. 'Things were erected or placed on "Hills or High Places." All is tied to this process and what was going on with the process. If you understand the "Conjunction in Alchemy," then you will understand this Holiday in Ancient Egypt.

A150. Emblem 2 from Barchusen, Elementa chemiae, Leiden, 1718.

What is important here is the pyramid shape over Gods head. The alchemists is praying to "God in Heaven." This show that the design does mean heaven. I believe also this is where the "Halo" came from used today. The design was just changed to hide the past.

This is of course the drawing I have spent many years with. The upper and lower part both show the entire process. That is why I picked this series set, I could compare the two. Here, thanks to the Work of Adam at the Web Site, the colors show what a Beautiful Process it is. Can you believe the colors come and go as they are shown here? I do, I have seen them all.

This design is of the hidden oven of Alchemy. I placed a one line drawing over the Abraham Flamel work to show it. Note here the lower part of the oven as i have pointed to that in several of the allegories which show this oven was known to the Alchemists. As Flamel said of this oven, "Like that used by the Philosophers." Note, he was not speaking of a Lab Pot and a fire underneath!

VK05. The fifth key of Basil Valentine.

"Count"! There are seven flowers, and this is actually about April, the seventh month after September. See the Crowned Lion under the sun, the stone (Lion) is now, "Like the Sun." The stone is finished. In April, it is also the Second Day in alchemy, the matter is being recycled in the dark. You have to keep it warm, the fire, the dark water is water collecting in the oven. The waters are being "Divided" as in Genesis. Note also the lavender color of the Flowers, the color of the finished stone. This is Easter and all tied to Easter is tied "Originally" to this stone. This is a time now for "Multiplication" and so the "Easter Bunny." This is where Osiris is now a God, being a Perfect Male and Female, and by uniting with Horus, a Perfect God as he wanted to be. This is about the Matter (Osiris) being resurrected Perfect. It is this process that convinced man he had found proof of God (the stone). Thus the organized religion of Osiris was created, and from that religion all others we have today.

KA01. Engraving 1 from, Khunrath Amphitheatrum sapientiæ æternæ , 1609.


This is included because of "Linear Perspective." See how the lines of the drawing kind of look like a pyramid from the top? You will see this a lot in alchemy as it is done that way just for that reason, to show the oven. The oven is special because of the design, PHI is within! That means it works with nature. If you will note, most if not all the Great Cathedrals in Europe were built to this design. Idaramled (alchemist) said to know why your church had a Dome or Steeple, same reason. When a new Temple is built, it also will be built to those specifications. It is an old belief from the Obelisk. God they believed would only come to a Perfect Design! Perfect Beings are that way. It seems many have know of the past, but the masses know nothing!

This is supposed to be a drawing of the "Alchemical Citadel." "21 ways that a man can go wrong!" Note the drawbridge. The drawbridge is the part of glass that sets atop the four small mountains within the oven, (four small pyramids). There are 21 pieces of glass to the design! Doesn't look like the oven does it? That is how an allegory works! It speaks of but hides the truth

MY06. Engraving 6 from, J.D. Mylius Philosophia reformata, Frankfurt, 1622.

Showed this from another series, but this is drawn differently. here nature (Green Lion) is eating the sun. This is the finish, and so you could say the Lion will be like the sun if he eats it! The seven flowers are here again. Some of the alchemists only spoke of or drew the last seven months. They were tied to the important work! This is about Genesis third Day where the waters are being separated. I am not sure why he has shown the man and woman at all, surly not why he has shown the man surrounded by gold! This step is shown as a Garden, garden of the Hesperides, "a Place where Gold was made." That comes from the perfection of the stone which as being perfect is "Like" gold. You see, it is about nature and matter and the two lights above. They had perfection within them and it was believed we could capture it. That gave us the stone. From that process, and the matter being slowly changed by "Nature," we ended up with God! Yes, from their understanding and belief from what the matter does! perhaps you should learn how to make this matter. You see, it is "always " about the matter. As man is the same, it was believed also, that this process could be used by God to perfect the man after death! It is hard for me to believe that everything we have, have had, all is about this process and an ancient belief about matter, time and shape! when I get to the Gnostic Gospels I will put down many things that just might convince you!

VA03. The third image from Valentine's Azoth.

I like this one for the way it is drawn. If you will turn this over, you see a Ram! The Milk and Blood pouring from her paps become the sun and moon. This is for Ram, spring when the waters are to come together. Third Day! Alchemy is called an Art. The reason is this, we can do the Creation as God did, and so perfect the matter in stages as in the Creation Process. However, we can't do it as God did, but by Art we can do it! What that means is it just takes us longer using nature to get a step done. The third Day for ex. is three Months long, or three Days. a day in the creation is based on the moon going through one cycle. The second Day takes us four months! Most are different.

MA01. Engraving 1 from, J.D. Mylius Philosophia reformata, Frankfurt, 1622.

This is a popular allegory so need to explain. In the background you see the sun with fire and the red color of the stone linking it to hot and dry and the last color of the stone. On the right we see the white Lady (Moon) with water as the moon is wet and moist, cool, etc. The two in front is an alchemists and a philosopher who is explaining the process. Note in the tree five stars and the sun and moon, or seven. That has been explained enough. The seven pictures on the tree portray the seven steps of making the stone if you can read them. The first is "Death" of the matters as what matter you use has to be returned to a base. Note that even in Genesis God did this in the Creation. The second allegory is dividing the waters, the crow is picking the matter apart. The Third Picture is circulation or bringing the waters together as in Third Day of Creation. The forth is what we call "Crowned Androgynous Material in Alchemy. Some of the process was left out here, the drying in moonlight, and the division into two parts for two stones. The fifth is the two stones when the White is finished, and the matter for the Red goes to heaven, or top of the oven. The sixth shows a Unicorn indicating it is a work of the sun, and the Roses is tied to Design of the oven! The last is the stone, emerging from the egg or inclosure. This is the first time the matter and sun actually join. From Cleopatra,(alchemists) "At the end let there be a Union between the Greatest (sun) and the Smallest (stone)." If you have followed all the other series I have gone over then you should be able to see that what I described here is correct or very close to it. If you become familiar with ancient Egypt, and the story of osiris and Isis, learn about the stars and constellations, all of that material will also fit to this explanation. there can be no doubt it was always about "Matter." Simply put, a process was found in nature where-by matter was thought perfected. That process became a religion, that same religion exists today under the guise of Christianity. All other religions that broke away from Christianity are from this same process, originally. All should consider that. The God of Nature is the only God man ever found. That God is based on this process. something to think about.

The Cabinet of Minerals First and Second allegory. I wanted to show these two from this series as I want you to compare them to the Abraham series I used with Flamel. See here a grapevine growing up a staff. Can you compare that to Mercury and his staff with the Two Serpents? The second on Abraham shows the mountain from the side. Here we have a Spider Web in a window. The lines of the web are like the lines of the oven seen from the top. These allegories are totally different, but show the same thing!
