Reaching The Status Of The Creator
The Philosopher’s stone, in Western alchemy, an unknown substance, also called “the tincture” or “the powder,” sought by alchemists for its supposed ability to transform base metals into precious ones, especially gold and silver.
Alchemists also believed that an elixir of life could be derived from it. Inasmuch as alchemy was concerned with the perfection of the human soul, the philosopher’s stone was thought to cure illnesses, prolong life, and bring about spiritual revitalization. (Encyclopaedia Britannica)
Comment: But this is only symbolism because in this transformation lies the ability to subjugate the world. According to their assertion and ideas, if I subjugate the world, I approach God.
My Response: Of course. If I transform any element into anything even physically, then I become the Creator to some extent. But the fact is that alchemists tried to do this on the still level. In principle, it is possible to do the reshuffling of electrons, neutrons, and protons in the atomic nucleus and remake them.
Let’s say I have electrons in one box, protons in another, neutrons in the third, and so on. And so I make precious metals out of them. Do you need gold? Please, I will assemble gold, silver, iron, bronze, no problem, any item. And what will we achieve by this?
This is a purely technological problem, and if it is solved, the person will not be happier from that. He will not achieve the meaning of life, he will not become omnipotent. Everyone will have several tons of gold at home. What will he do with it?
Comment: The symbolism lies precisely in the fact that by subjugating others, dominating others, I achieve the status of the Creator.
My Response: No. Not at all, because the Creator’s objective was to create man so that he would reach His level. Myself!
And the level of the Creator is not in creating all sorts of golden spillikins, but in being similar to the Creator in His status, in His properties of bestowal and love.
The Creator created us with His light. This light consists of 613 properties of bestowal and love, 613 types of emanation of good.
We are created as their imprint. And therefore, we have 613 egoistic desires to be filled with these lights. We must transform our desires so that they work as 613 properties of bestowal and love in each one of us.
