In the eyes of a variety of esoteric and Hermetic practitioners, the сердце of alchemy is spiritual. Transmutation of lead into Золото is presented as an analogy for personal transmutation, purification, and perfection. This approach is often termed 'spiritual', 'esoteric', или 'internal' alchemy.
Early alchemists, such as Zosimos of Panopolis, highlight the spiritual nature of the alchemical quest, symbolic of a religious regeneration of the human soul. This approach continued in the Middle Ages, as metaphysical aspects, substances, physical states, and material processes were used as metaphors...

Take solace in rage
for fear is blinding
and hate is cruel and useless

These things make me wonder...
About the poisons I have within.
So many...all of which were listed

Rage for those who deserve death
tempt me and make me tense
and push me to the edge.

For those who have no excuses for what they do...
who feel life is disposable until it actually ends.
Then suddenly feel guilty for those they pushed to the end.

All the people who claim to Любовь life...
they forget a part, though...
they Любовь only some life...only THEIR life.

I take my solace from rage.

Fear only blinds...
so have no fear of predilection.
I...

I know Ты won't let go of me
You're my greatest faceless enemy
Though all Ты do is hurt me
I guess misery loves company...
And Ты won't let me leave Ты lonely....
Though sometimes Ты speak so soothingly....
I almost don't want Ты to leave me....
I'll suffer so very slowly....
Because Ты know just what to say to me.....
To keep me here, knowingly.
Because this is just the way it must be.

I have no choice
Because your voice...
It keeps me here...
So I can not fear.
The most difficult thing...
Is the ring ring in my ear...
Telling me to let go
That I don't belong here...
But I feel instantly drawn
To the bloody...

The origin of Western alchemy may generally be traced to Hellenistic Egypt. The Hellenistic city of Alexandria was a center of Greek alchemical knowledge, and retained its preeminence through most of the Greek and Roman periods. Here, elements of technology, religion, mythology, and Greek philosophy, each with their own much longer histories, combined to form the earliest known records of alchemy in the West. Zosimos of Panopolis wrote the oldest known Книги on alchemy while Mary the Jewess is credited as being the first non-fictitious Western alchemist. They wrote in Greek and lived in Egypt...

The final and most current chapter of this story of ours...and the 1 that's still unraveling.
We decided after making the Aquosea Stone that we would use it 2 help the Humunculi and Chimeras if it was possible...
Our plan was simple...we knew that Ed and Al were trying 2 kill them all..and 4 some we were 2 l8 2 stop them from being killed...but the stone aloud us 2 bring them bak so it didn't matter much either way....but having them alive made things a bit easier. When they were dead we simply had them rebuild around the Aquosea Stone instead of a Philosopher's Stone, and when they were alive...

After the fall of the Roman Empire, the focus of alchemical development moved to the Islamic World. Much еще is known about Islamic alchemy because it was better documented: indeed, most of the earlier writings that have come down through the years were preserved as Arabic translations. The word alchemy itself was derived from the Arabic word الكيمياء al-kimia. The Islamic world was a melting pot for alchemy. Platonic and Aristotelian thought, which had already been somewhat appropriated into hermetical science, continued to be assimilated during the late 7th and early 8th centuries....

The demise of Western alchemy was brought about by the rise of modern science with its emphasis on rigorous quantitative experimentation and its disdain for "ancient wisdom". Although the seeds of these events were planted as early as the 17th century, alchemy still flourished for some two hundred years, and in fact may have reached its apogee in the 18th century. As late as 1781 James Price claimed to have produced a powder that could transmute mercury into silver или gold.
Robert Boyle, better known for his studies of gases (cf. Boyle's law) pioneered the scientific method in chemical investigations....

Homunculus (Latin for "Little Human", plural Homunculi) refers to the mythological concept of an artificially created human, presumably brought into existence by way of alchemy. Though a common concept, well known and understood by alchemists in Amestris, the idea of homunculi is regarded as no еще than a farce или faraway Фэнтези as no individual или group of alchemists has come anywhere close to successfully creating such a being in officially recorded history. Even so, alchemists have been forbidden by the Amestrian government to attempt или research in the transmutation of humans and State...

As u can imagine the written test was the easy part...what's left is 4 me 2 win over the interviewer...
the стул with 3 legs....which 4 some reason is suppose 2 b unstable here...even tho any mathematician on the other side will tell u the exact opposite....so weird...4 legs actually makes chairs wobblier...i walk in2 the room, un-afraid and slightly over-confident.
“come...sit down.” the interviewer says...i don't kno the voice nor am I ever дана a name. “good evening. How's it going?”
“well it's goin'...and good evening 2 u as well, sir.” I try 2 cover my sarcastic blunder with...

So after tht, we started learning under the king. How many people can say tht...?
“1st, I wanna c how big a flame u can control.” мустанг says. “make the absolute biggest flame u can control.”
“right...erm...” I stammer....this is sad. огонь is the only thing my sister can control better then me. Tht and lightning only minus the voltage. I make as big a огонь I can control which is about the size of a small car. It's in the shape of a rose 2 prove I have complete control over it.
“my turn.” Cylon snaps her fingers and makes a огонь about the size of a large car and a half. Her's is...

“we wanna get out state license.” I reply 2 мустанг when he asks y we're there.
“well, do u now?” he laughs and gives tht smile tht, b4 I met James, would have made my сердце skip a beat. Not anymore, I'm happy 2 say. “u kno I won't just give it 2 u even after u helped out, rite?”
“we kno.” we say at the same time.
“we only have 1 request.” I say.
“request?”

The state of Amestris has reached it's closing article...and the shortest 1. Since Roy became king Ishvallins have been дана their homeland bak and it's been re-built completely. Tht was only part 1.
All the borders have been re-established and the treaties made еще livable for the other country. We've had no wars after the riots from the Amestris up-rising calmed. Scar was put in charge of teaching the old ways 2 the younger children along with a half-Ishvallan from Brigs. They seem 2 b doing their job well.
The border with Drachma was among the 1st treaties 2 b worked with. They were compliant...

“hey Joss!” Ed and Al run up “OMMIGOD, IT'S ENVY!!!””
“what....?” I look at them.
“James.” James looks at Ed. “and just what is wrong with me being here?”
“we thought u were...” Al starts.
“Dead?” I look at him.
“yeah.” Ed growls and glares at him, clearly pissed.
“oh, I've made it angry with my presence....” James glares right bak. “just imagine how angry he'd b if he knew all the other humunculii he supposedly killed were all alive 2.” he says mockingly.
“wh-wh-what...?” he gets bug-eyed.
“all thanks 2 a certain kind-hearted girl who saved us.”
“well....it...

“U WON'T KEEP ME IN HERE LONG!!” Bradley yells.
“shut up.” I growl, clapping my hands and touching the metal ball, making it extra thick and making the inside melt, covering him with molten metal and making him scream.
“What'd do 2 'im?” James asks as we leave.
“melted the inner layer of steal and covered him with it so now he's basicly encased in a steal statue...”
“how'd u do tht without fire...?”
“all u have 2 do 2 make metal melt is excite the particles 2 a point where they separate from each other enough tht it becomes a liquid. Most use огонь 2 do tht but a skilled alchemist...

He lands with a thud on the concrete and skids 2 a halt just b4 he hits a wall. “aw...so close...” I mutter. “but I suppose I get skid points....” I sigh. James laughs slightly.
“skid points, hu?”
“the distance from where he landed 2 where he ended up.” I say simply.
“but he bounced a bit...”
“good, tht's bonus points.” I grin as Bradley gets up.
“stop talking about me like i'm not here...” he growls, recovering quickly. Above us r the sounds of riots and shooting....many small fights going on at once, the 95% tht want a new ruler facing the small final part tht think...

“u think u give very good advice...” I say evenly, bouncing gracefully away from is sword. “but then y don't u follow it?”
“what do u mean?!” he growls, pissed tht he can't seem 2 even scratch me.
“well, I suppose the biggest example is how u say u hate humans yet u wish u were 1...” I reply simply. “and how u say so many other things tht u ignore l8er....”
“U'R RLLY PISSING ME OFF!!!” he snaps, slashing faster and hitting my automail arm right where it ends. He was about a half inch from cutting through me.
“oh, so close.” I whisper, the thin layer of skin healing quickly....

“y is it u feel the need 2 piss me off?” Bradley growls as he tries again 2 kill me and I nimbily avoid.
“well because I'm like u.” I reply, rolling under his Далее slash.
“how so?!” he replies, stabbing straight down at me.
“imma lowlife.” I say simply as I grab the sword with my automail arm and Переместить out of the way. The thin layer of skin cuts and heals over quickly when I let go. “tho in ur case ur livin' the highlife.”
“u think i'm a lowlife?!” he tries again 2 Слэш me and this time I land on the sword with my automail leg and balance perfectly. He glares at me and moves...

“u've been taught tht the truth is ez 2 hide.” I growl at Bradley as we fight. “just like a human...but the truth is ez 2 c if u look...”
“just like a human, u say? Y is THT!?” he attacks me with the sword and I fade 2 the left, easily avoiding him.
“simple.” I reply, ducking his sword with my hands casually behind my bak. “tell me Bradley, was there any point in time in ur life u actually told the truth?”
“y aren't u fighting bak?!” he snaps, thrusting is sword at me again and I leap over it and over him, landing on the other side of him.
“y r u avoiding the question,...

“what way does a дерево fall?” I ask simply.
“what a stupid Вопрос from a stupid child. A дерево falls down.” Bradley scowls.
“wrong...” I say, looking at him.
“WRONG?!”
“a дерево falls the direction it leans.” I reply evenly, un-phased. “u should have been еще careful...of the direction u chose...it's a simple matter. 1 день u'll have 2 face the truth u've set 4 urself...the seeds u've planted will grow.” I turn and start 2 walk away, then turn bak and look at him. He seems befuddled. After all...we were just fighting. “will u b able 2 withstand the force they...
