Beyond the Da Vinci Code
on April 20, 2005
Recently I read the Da Vinci Code and my eyes were opened to a different view of the spiritual history of the West. In my opinion, Secrets of Alchemy does the Da Vinci Code one better because it is a true story.
In this documentary, we learn of a cross in a churchyard in the south of France that predicts the end of this age in which we live. Jay Weidner leads us through the experiences, outer circumstances and inner revelations, which helped him to crack the code on this cross. He tells us of his many adventures going from Hollywood to France to Egypt and Peru to follow this trail no matter where it leads him.
My friends and I have watched Secrets of Alchemy repeatedly now and each time its magical quality changes. Thanks to this documentary, I think that I have developed a greater understanding of what alchemy is all about. It helped me to finally comprehend why knowledge of the tarot, astrology, alternative history, mystical Christianity and the Kabbalah is so essential to understanding alchemy. Secrets of Alchemy has given me a lot to think about.
