The causing of any sort of mysterious sudden transmutation
The ancient search for a universal panacea, and of the philosopher's stone, that eventually developed into chemistry
Any elaborate transformation process or algorithm
chemistry of the middle ages, characterized by the pursuit of changing base metals to gold
{n} sublime chemistry, a mixed metal
A branch of High Magick developed in the Middle Ages which sought to magickally and/or chemically turn base metals into gold (A lot people now days use the term "Alchemy" to discribe general Magik ) Altar: A special, flat surface set aside exclusively for magickal workings or religious acknowledgment Amulet: A magically charged object which deflects specific energies A protective object Ankh: An Egyptian hieroglyphic widely used as a symbol of life, love, and reincarnation It is a cross with a looped top Arcana: The two halves of a tarot deck The Major Arcana consists of 22 trumps, the Minor Arcana consists of 56 suit cards (sometimes called the lesser, lower, or minor Arcana)
The word 'alchemy' comes from the Arabic Khem, an ancient word for Egypt, thus making it the 'Art of Egypt', or magic
generally, the ways of transformative power; specifically, the medieval science of attempting to transform base metals into gold; also, finding the universal cure for disease and prolonging life thereby
The Science of turning the baser metals into gold or silver by chemical means The byproduct, "Quicksilver," was thought to have magical powers This was a very perfected science in Egyptian times and lasted all the way up into the 14th-16th Century A D when some of the alchemy methods were lost due to wars and fires that were amid in those times
Chinese alchemy has an interesting variance from the concept of Western alchemy Rather than the western alchemy school, which viewed the art/science as the knowledge and application of physical change of elements and subtances for purposes of metallurgy, medicine, and other sciences Chinese alchemy views the art/science as the transformation and purifying of all things, which can include the human body Thus the alchemy refered to in Meihuazhuang are not the elixirs, formulae, and theories, often recognized with alchemy
The practice of transmuting base metals into precious metals
A metaphysical chemistry, by which a combination of two base elements transmutes to create a higher third form Example: 1+1=3 or the combination of the two elements hydrogen and oxygen creates a new third entity called water
Ancestor to modern Chemistry, Alchemy was concerned with the processes of the transmutation and purification or distillation of the soul or spirit, as well as of physical materials and chemicals used to represent or symbolize spiritual transformation See Philosopher's Stone
What we would now call chemistry This science, practised from the time of the ancient Greeks up to the 17th century, was often mixed with mystical or magical beliefs One popular belief was that alchemy could discover "the philosopher's stone" which could magically turn lead into gold The search for this stone, and its complete failure, gave alchemists a low reputation in some places Here the poet argues that worldly wealth isn't real: it is, like the gold supposedly found by some alchemists, a fake
the ancient attempt to create the Philosopher's Stone and mutable gold In the West, mainly of Egyptian origin and Arabic elaboration, but also with Gnostic roots, especially in the idea that the world soul was trapped in matter Beginning with the prima materia, the alchemist heated, cooked, and washed the substance until it passed through the four stages of nigredo, albedo, cinitritas, and rubedo and became the Stone Jung saw the opus alchymicum, the work of alchemy, as an unconscious projection of the process of individuation, which starts with an unconscious content (prima materia) and end with the realization of the Self symbol (Philosopher's Stone)
The application of various methods to produce the mystical Stone of the Philosophers and accomplish the Great Work; these methods tend to work on several planes of existence in simultaneous parallel
a pseudoscientific forerunner of chemistry in medieval times
A field of magical study that deals with utilitizing naturally occuring essence in the Universe and combining such essence to produce useful things
from Arabic, perhaps Greek, via Syriac al-kimiya) The endeavor (minimally) to find the key to the transformation of chemical substances, especially of base metals into precious ones; and beyond that, to find 'the elixir of immortality' The word and practice of 'alchemy' thus underlie modern chemistry In its earlier forms it pervades all religions, though moving increasingly to interior and spiritual transformations (Since I'm employing the word in this latter sense in my album title - ALCHEMY OF HOPE - soon I will devote a page of its own to the entire entry in the Oxford Dictionary of World Religions Go here for the entire O D W R entry
The medieval and Renaissance precursor to modern chemistry, characterized by mystical philosophy and attempts to turn "base" metals such as lead and tin into "noble" metals such as gold and silver The tenets of alchemy were based on the theory of the four elements (see elements, the four), in which all matter was composed of varying proportions of four substances--air, earth, water, and fire Chaucer's "Canon Yeoman's Tale" focuses on the deceptions of false alchemical practitioners, and Shakespeare's The Tempest borrows heavily from alchemical lore in its depiction of the island's magical spirits
the way two individuals relate to each other; "their chemistry was wrong from the beginning -- they hated each other"; "a mysterious alchemy brought them together"
ancient esoteric practice, generally thought of as 'the mother of chemistry and medicine' and based on the doctrine of transmuting base metals into gold Its new interpretation reveals knowledge of great psychological and magical significance
The speculative medieval philosophical art of changing objects from one element into another, principally (historically) attempting to turn lead and other base metals into gold; pseudo-science
Chemistry and in particular pharmaceutical chemistry (as practised in the Middle Ages); searching for a panacea
Miraculous power of transmuting something common into something precious
{i} medieval form of chemistry which focused on the transmutation of base metals into gold
An imaginary art which aimed to transmute the baser metals into gold, to find the panacea, or universal remedy for diseases, etc
It led the way to modern chemistry
Alchemy was a form of chemistry studied in the Middle Ages, which was concerned with trying to discover ways to change ordinary metals into gold. Pseudoscience focused on the attempt to change base metals into gold. Ancient alchemists believed that, under the correct astrological conditions, lead could be "perfected" into gold. They tried to hasten this transformation by heating and refining the metal in a variety of chemical processes, most of which were kept secret. Alchemy was practiced in much of the ancient world, from China and India to Greece. It migrated to Egypt during the Hellenistic period and was later revived in 12th-century Europe through translations of Arabic texts into Latin. Medieval European alchemists made some useful discoveries, including mineral acids and alcohol. The revival led to the development of pharmacology under the influence of Paracelsus and to the rise of modern chemistry. Not until the 19th century were the gold-making processes of alchemists finally discredited
A mixed metal composed mainly of brass, formerly used for various utensils; hence, a trumpet
