The medieval sages believed that all things were composed of philosophical salt sulfur and mercury, and thus through secret alchemical processes matter could theoretically be reduced back into these three basic elements which were called the holy trinity. The idea was that through calcination, dissolution, purification and reunification various herbs or minerals could be multiplied into an exalted substance. The basic theory of the ancient philosophers was that lead represented the "body" of gold while missing its philosophical sulfur element, and further that perhaps another metallic ore might contain the golden sulfur housed in the improper receptacle. In the realm of mineral alchemy the color red is often associated with the element of fire, which Nicholas Flamel called Mars, the stout and valiant God of war. Other terminology for this subject included the fiery red king, and the dragon. In this video we shall embark upon an alchemical journey into natures mystery which is influenced by the works of Michael Sendivogius.
