On Alchemy

Alchemy is the raising of the vibrations.  The raising of specimen is the raising of vibrations.  Since everything that grows comes from a seed, the fruit must be contained in its seed.  Herbs, animals, minerals and metals grow from seed.  This is transmutation.  If we can help nature in her ultimate goal, that of bringing her products to perfection, then we are in harmony with her laws.  Then, we can affect changes in our physical sphere of sensation through the power of our minds.  Nature accepts artificial effort, or shortcuts, to bring about perfection.  In this way, hermetic philosophy, with its practical arcanum, repeats itself over and over again in the ancient axiom:  "As above, so below; as below, so above."  (Second Principle of Correspondence, The Kybalion, by the Three Initiates.)
