    THE LARGE COCTION
    No‭ ‬35‭ ‬this Thursday May‭ ‬25,‭ ‬1951

    My quite dear old man,
    I am in full work.‭ ‬This night was worse than the preceding one which was shown extremely beautiful,‭ ‬after a storm of a violence inouïe had swept the sky,‭ ‬not without to have literally flooded the village and chopped orchards and gardens under a grapeshot‭ ‬the enormous ones let us grélons‭…‬ No matter what it was,‭ ‬I lime pits not walk of my operations which,‭ ‬in spite of the clouds and although I had started before the first district,‭ ‬were possible thanks to a powerful cosmic impulse and to the price of a certain mercury loss,‭ ‬which had with greatest volatility.‭

    This morning,‭ ‬the weather is gloomy and the sky was covered,‭ ‬but I do not doubt that it will not be released with the fall from the day,‭ ‬under the influence of the moon.‭ ‬Thus hoped I to finish my‭ ‬eagles‭  ‬well‭  ‬this next night and,‭ ‬this one offering itself particularly favourable,‭ ‬not only‭  ‬to precipitate‭ ‬  the rémore,‭ ‬but also‭ ‬to consolidate‭  ‬it‭  ‬before the early morning.‭ ‬Ram,‭ ‬I have bread on the board,‭ ‬like one says,‭ ‬and I will not put myself late to light my large furnace this evening.‭

    I found,‭ ‬in Paris,‭ ‬the nickel wire of‭ ‬8/10‭ ‬E‭ ‬ of section,‭ ‬which I wanted,‭ ‬and I carried out,‭ ‬on Monday,‭ ‬my test which,‭ ‬after‭ ‬6‭ ‬hours of perfect walk,‭ ‬as well with regard to the precision balance as of the thermal stages,‭ ‬was stopped by the rupture of‭ ‬+‭ (‬crucible‭) ‬of porcelain.‭

    The accident occurred twice,‭ ‬so that under the threat of his repetition,‭ ‬during the real execution,‭ ‬I prefer finally to stop me with small‭ "‬clamping plate‭" ‬N‭ ‬O‭ ‬ 0,‭ ‬out of refractory ground,‭ ‬much‭ ‬more resistant and the more so as the porcelain mud does not offer to me,‭ ‬at the bottom,‭ ‬no advantage on him‭…


    EXPLAINED ALCHEMY

    Here now,‭ ‬relating to the operation of‭  ‬the third work,‭ ‬a short ticket which was written at the end of one night of monitoring.‭ ‬It will be enough,‭ ‬we are certain,‭ ‬to satisfy the investigator who,‭ ‬wisely,‭ ‬accepts impossibility,‭ ‬that all is provided in detail:‭

    No‭ ‬37‭ ‬this‭ ‬17‭ ‬May‭ ‬1951‭  ‬– 8‭ ‬hours

    My quite dear old man,
    My coction is on the way since day before yesterday Tuesday,‭ ‬at‭ ‬21‭ ‬hours,‭ ‬very exactly,‭ ‬i.e.‭ ‬since the moment when I included in the mud philosophal of‭ ‬160‭ ‬grs,‭ ‬55‭ (‬symbol‭) ‬my will remora of‭ ‬415‭ ‬centigrs.‭

    You think with which deep interest,‭ ‬with which intense emotion,‭ ‬unceasingly maintained,‭ ‬I am well the enthralling operation beyond the qualifacatif one.‭

    Like last year,‭ ‬the first sound,‭ ‬-‭  ‬C‭ ‬ probably,‭ ‬-‭ ‬was made hear very quickly,‭ ‬1‭ ‬h.‭ ‬32‭ ‬after the departure,‭ ‬i.e.‭ ‬worms‭ ‬22‭ ‬h.‭ ‬30.‭ ‬It was maintained a little less than‭ ‬2‭ ‬minutes,‭ ‬approximately‭ ‬100‭ ‬seconds,‭ ‬without the weight changing,‭ ‬which was at the beginning,‭ ‬it‭ ‬+‭ ‬clamping plate‭ ‬0‭ ‬and the mica included/understood,‭ ‬313‭ ‬grs,‭ ‬6.‭

    The‭ ‬2‭ ‬E‭ ‬ whistle,‭ ‬which appeared me well to be‭  ‬D,‭ ‬occurred as much to say just‭ ‬24‭ ‬h.‭ ‬afterwards,‭ ‬yesterday to‭ ‬22‭ ‬h.‭ ‬10,‭ ‬tandis per same hour,‭ ‬353‭ ‬grs,‭ ‬64,‭ ‬that is to say‭  ‬– it is remarkable‭  ‬– the same fraction of progression as for the temperature‭ ‬340‭ ‬0.‭

    For the weight the increase appears considerable,‭ ‬which always continues same insensitive manner,‭ ‬-‭ ‬18‭ ‬grs.‭ ‬it there has‭ ‬¼ hour‭  ‬– but is shown in


    THE LARGE COCTION

    agreement,‭ ‬moreover,‭ ‬with the alchemical tradition giving‭  ‬to Pierre‭ ‬ an enormous density.‭

    The white mica is‭ ‬practical,‭ ‬but lets to me nothing see of other but the crust in dome which was formed in‭ ‬+,‭ ‬above the matter and which is truly what the old ones named philosophical lute or of Nature.‭

    I do not await‭  ‬the semi one‭ ‬ before the twilight,‭ ‬also I will sleep‭ ‬a few hours.‭

    No‭ ‬38‭ ‬this‭ ‬21‭ ‬May‭ ‬1951

    My quite dear old man,
    The large coction continues without tear,‭ ‬with the regularity of a clock and a way apparently so simple and easy,‭ ‬that I then to drive out the apprehension that does not occur,‭ ‬from one moment to another,‭ ‬some catastrophe which does not come all to destroy and make me dearly pay,‭ ‬by a brutal disillusion,‭ ‬these unutterable hours of superhuman hope and intense happiness.‭

    Which extraordinary‭  ‬harmony‭ ‬ that this operation,‭ ‬which suave‭  ‬poetry‭ ‬ also whose Greek term reveals to the point,‭ ‬gasoline not only abstracted and metaphysical,‭ ‬but still positive and scientific:‭ [ ‬‭]‬,‭ ‬Poiesis,‭  ‬clothes industry,‭ ‬execution,‭ ‬operation.‭

    More doubt now,‭ ‬my good old man,‭ ‬and if‭  ‬God wants it,‭ ‬I will have of‭ ‬it this evening the confirmation,‭  ‬the black‭ ‬ lasts‭ ‬6‭ ‬days and‭ ‬the hebdomas hebdomadum‭ ‬ of the Followers is very real,‭ ‬that the‭ ‬7‭ ‬E‭ ‬day‭  ‬finishes,‭ ‬that of the rest.‭ ‬During this last must quickly follow one another the two stages of the white and red,‭ ‬with,‭ ‬certainly,‭ ‬the absence of any difficulty which the quietude of Sunday‭ ‬or‭  ‬Sunday‭ ‬points out.‭ ‬As I will have to hear this evening the note closing the last day of work,‭ ‬i.e.‭ ‬the‭ ‬6‭ ‬E,‭ ‬at the same time as the series


    EXPLAINED ALCHEMY

    sound of which crescendo showed itself as surely sensitive to my ear as the graduated progression of the weight and heat in their constant synchronism.‭ ‬Here weights raised in the time even where was made hear each light whistle‭ (‬+‭ ‬included/understood‭)‬:‭

       D SEMI F GROUND SI
    333,65‭ ‬354,8‭ ‬368,6‭ ‬396‭ ‬423,5‭ ‬440,60

    I am held at present to‭ ‬500‭ ‬0‭  ‬according to whether allows it to me,‭ ‬as well as possible,‭ ‬my pyro excel,‭ ‬but whose divisions go by‭ ‬20.‭ ‬The apparatus is however very right since the compost does not‭ ‬suffer from it,‭ ‬of which the protective crust increase in at present already last weight to‭ ‬440,6.‭ ‬I notice that the sound stages are not rigorously‭ ‬24‭ ‬h.,‭ ‬that they vary from‭ ‬10‭ ‬to‭ ‬12‭ ‬minutes,‭ ‬as I check it on the clock of the dining room which is of a great exactitude.‭ ‬That seems to me particularly singular.

    Since this time,‭ ‬during more than twenty years,‭ ‬because of the contrary temperature,‭ ‬we tested only four times the realization of the ultimate phase,‭ ‬without making a success of it,‭ ‬but also,‭ ‬thanks‭ ‬to God,‭ ‬without causing the rupture of egg.‭ ‬This one,‭ ‬it is necessary well to be appropriate about it,‭ ‬is,‭ ‬actually an explosion,‭ ‬forces certainly and apparently without danger,‭ ‬but of which we cannot envisage the consequences exactly and which ultimately,‭ ‬we do not make a point of renewing.‭

    The abrupt stop of the coction of the third work by the accidental opening of the vessel philosophal,‭ ‬releases an unimaginable accumulation of cosmic energy whose catalytic action can be felt,‭ ‬in unsuspected manner,‭ ‬without no limit stopping it in space.‭ ‬We had to note it


    NEAREST MATTER AND SA PREPARATION

    nostrum is quasi mineralis will terra,‭ ‬coagulationis suae respectu,‭ & ‬tamen aer volatilis,‭ ‬will intra quod is Coelum Philosophorum in central suo,‭ ‬quod centrum is‭ ‬reverà astral,‭ ‬irradians usque terram AD superficiem suo jubare.‭

    Yes,‭ ‬the Chaos of the philosopher is a mineral ground,‭ ‬an ore,‭ ‬more precisely a sulphide,‭ ‬but what Philalèthe does not say,‭ ‬it is that it is important to return,‭ ‬with this raw material,‭ ‬the spirit of life,‭ ‬essential and latent,‭ ‬that he had in the mine,‭ ‬when the great‭  ‬Principle‭  ‬pushed it center with the periphery.‭

    ***

    Artephius evoked,‭ ‬rather obviously,‭ ‬as of the first lines of its opuscule,‭ ‬the name which it is interdict to advance,‭ ‬nor to even pronounce or,‭ ‬to write:‭

    "antimony is parts of Saturn and,‭ ‬in all ways,‭ ‬it of nature,‭ ‬and Saturnin antimony is appropriate for the Sun,‭ ‬and in him is the quick silver in which any metal is not submerged,‭ ‬if it is not gold,‭ ‬i.e.‭ ‬the sun only is submerged,‭ ‬in truth,‭ ‬in quick silver antimonial Saturnin,‭ ‬and without this quick silver no metal cannot be bleached‭  ‬1.‭"

    Philalèthe echoed the antiquissime philosopher,‭ ‬while underlining,‭ ‬as Basile Valentine had not missed there before him,‭ ‬the well-known property which has the mineral subject,‭ ‬to remove common gold from foreign metals which can encumber it and to tarnish it.‭ ‬The feeling of the famous Benedictine could not give place to the least ambiguity:‭

    My very good friend,
    I amndt in full work.‭ ‬This night has been worse than the preceding one which was extremely beautiful,‭ ‬after which has storm of incredible year violence swept the sky,‭ ‬and literally flooded the village and pelleted orchards and gardens under has grapeshot of huge hailstones‭…‬ No matter what it‭' ‬S been like,‭ ‬I C not complain of the steps of my operations that,‭ ‬despite clouds and although I had begun before the first quarter,‭ ‬were possible thanks to has powerful cosmic pulse and At the price of has some loss of Mercury,‭ ‬which had the greatest volatility.‭

    This morning,‭ ‬the weather is gloomy and the sky has clouded,‭ ‬goal I C not doubt that it will not liberate me after the fall of the day,‭ ‬under the influence of the moon.‭ ‬Thus I hoped to finish my eagles this next night and,‭ ‬the to form offering itself particularly favourable,‭ ‬not only to precipitate the rémore,‭ ‬goal also to consolidate it before the early morning.‭ ‬Lady,‭ ‬I cuts the bread one the board,‭ ‬have one says,‭ ‬and I will not wait to broad light my furnace this evening.‭

    I cuts found,‭ ‬in Paris,‭ ‬the nickel wire of‭ ‬8/10th of section,‭ ‬that I wanted,‭ ‬and I cuts undertaken,‭ ‬one Monday,‭ ‬my test which,‭ ‬after‭ ‬6‭ ‬hours of perfected training courses,‭ ‬have well have with glance to the precision balances of the thermal training courses,‭ ‬was interrupted by the rupture of the‭ ‬+‭ (‬crucible‭) ‬of porcelain.‭

    The accident occurred twice,‭ ‬so that under the threat of this repetition,‭ ‬during the real execution,‭ ‬I finally preferred to choose the small‭ "‬clamping punt‭" ‬No‭ ‬0,‭ ‬ground out of refractory earth,‭ ‬which is far more resistant than the mud of porcelain,‭ ‬which quite frankly,‭ ‬has No advantage‭…


    The ALCHEMY EXPLAINED

    Here is now,‭ ‬relative to the operation of the third work,‭ ‬has shorts account which was written At the end of has night of monitoring.‭ ‬It will suffice,‭ ‬we are sour,‭ ‬to satisfy the investigator who,‭ ‬wisely,‭ ‬accepts the impossibility,‭ ‬that the whole is provided in detail:‭

    No‭ ‬37‭ ‬this‭ ‬17‭ ‬May‭ ‬1951‭ ‬-‭ ‬8‭ ‬hours

    My very good friend,
    My coction has been one the way since the day before yesterday Tuesday,‭ ‬At‭ ‬9:00‭ ‬token entry,‭ ‬very exactly,‭ ‬i.e.‭ ‬since the urgent when I added to the philosophical mud of‭ ‬160.55‭ ‬grams,‭ [ ‬symbol‭ ] ‬my will remora of‭ ‬415‭ ‬centigrams.‭

    You think with deep interest,‭ ‬with intense emotion,‭ ‬unceasingly maintained,‭ ‬I amndt well the enthralling operation beyond qualification.‭

    Like last year,‭ ‬the first sound,‭ ‬-‭ ‬the C‭ (‬C‭) ‬probably,‭ ‬-‭ ‬was heard very quickly,‭ ‬1‭ ‬hour‭ ‬32‭ ‬minutes after the departure,‭ ‬that is to say to‭ ‬10:30‭ ‬p.m.‭ ‬It was maintained for has bit less than‭ ‬2‭ ‬minutes,‭ ‬approximately‭ ‬100‭ ‬seconds,‭ ‬without the weight changing,‭ ‬which was in the beginning,‭ ‬the‭ ‬+‭ ‬clamping punt‭ ‬0‭ ‬and the mica understood,‭ ‬313.6‭ ‬grams.‭

    The‭ ‬2nd whistling,‭ ‬which sounded to have me RE‭ (‬D‭)‬,‭ ‬occurred have much to say just‭ ‬24‭ ‬h.‭ ‬afterwards,‭ ‬yesterday At‭ ‬10:10‭ ‬token entry,‭ ‬during the same hour,‭ ‬353.64,‭ ‬is‭ ‬-‭ ‬it is remarkable‭ ‬-‭ ‬the same fraction of progression have for the temperature‭ ‬3400.‭

    For the weight the increase appears considerable,‭ ‬which always continuous in the same insensitive manner,‭ ‬-‭ ‬18‭ ‬grams.in‭ ‬¼ hour‭ ‬-‭ ‬goal shows itsel


    THE GREAT COCTION

    in agreement,‭ ‬moreover,‭ ‬with the alchemical tradition giving to the Stone year enormous density.‭

    The white mica is practical,‭ ‬goal allows me to see nothing other than the crust in the dome which was formed in the‭ ‬+,‭ ‬above the matter and which is truly what the ancients named the philosophical lutes gold of Nature.‭

    I C not await the SEMI‭ (‬E‭) ‬before dusk,‭ ‬also I amndt going‭ ‬-‭ ‬I will sleep some hours.‭

    No‭ ‬38‭ ‬this‭ ‬21‭ ‬May‭ ‬1951

    My very good friend,
    The great coction continuous without has snag,‭ ‬with the regularity of has clock and in A way apparently so simple and easy,‭ ‬that I then drive out the apprehension that does not occur,‭ ‬any time,‭ ‬that some catastrophe won‭' ‬T come to destroy and make me pay‭ ‬dearly,‭ ‬by has brutal unutterable disillusion,‭ ‬these hours of superhuman hope and intense happiness.‭

    More doubt now,‭ ‬my good friend,‭ ‬and yew God wants it,‭ ‬I will cuts this evening the confirmation,‭ ‬the black lasts‭ ‬6‭ ‬days and the hebdomas hebdomadum of the Adepts is very real,‭ ‬that it ends one the‭ ‬7th day,‭ ‬that of rest.‭ ‬During the race of this ending the two training courses of the white and red must quickly follow one another,‭ ‬with,‭ ‬certainly,‭ ‬the reflective absence of any difficulty‭ ‬which is of the tranquility of Sunday,‭ ‬the day of the Lord.‭ ‬Have I will cuts to hear this evening the note closing the last day of the work,‭ ‬that is to say the‭ ‬6th,‭ ‬At the same time have the sound series



    The ALCHEMY EXPLAINED

    whose crescendo has surely appeared have sensitive to my ear have the graduated progression of the weight and the heat in their constant synchronism.‭ ‬Here are the weights revealed during the same time that each of the light whistles was heard‭ (‬+‭ ‬included‭)‬:‭

       RE SEMI F GROUND TI
    333.65‭ ‬354.8‭ ‬368.6‭ ‬396‭ ‬423.5‭ ‬440.60

    I presently hold to‭ ‬500‭ ‬0‭  ‬aces best have L amndt whitebait to,‭ ‬according to my excel pyro,‭ ‬goal whose increments go by‭ ‬20.‭ ‬Correct The apparatus is however very since the compost does not suffer from it,‭ ‬whose protective crust increase of presently past weight already to‭ ‬440.6.‭ ‬I note that the sound training courses are not rigorously‭ ‬24‭ ‬hours,‭ ‬that they vary from‭ ‬10‭ ‬to‭ ‬12‭ ‬minutes,‭ ‬have I edge best verify it one the clock of the dining room which is quite accurate.‭ ‬That seems to me particularly singular.‭

    Since this time,‭ ‬during the race of more than twenty years,‭ ‬because of the contrary temperature,‭ ‬we tried only furnace times the realization of the ultimate phase,‭ ‬without success,‭ ‬goal also,‭ ‬thanks to God,‭ ‬without causing the rupture of the egg.‭ ‬This,‭ ‬it is necessary to admitted,‭ ‬is,‭ ‬actually year explosion,‭ ‬violate certainly and apparently without danger,‭ ‬goal which we cannot anticipate the consequences exactly and definitely,‭ ‬we C not wish to renew.‭

    Abrupt The stop of the coction of the third work by the accidental opening of the philosophical vessel,‭ ‬releases year unimaginable accumulation of cosmic energy whose catalytic action edge Be felt,‭ ‬in year unsuspected manner,‭ ‬without any limit stopping it in space.‭ ‬We had to note it....



    THE NEXT MATTER AND ITS PREPARATION

    Yes,‭ ‬the Chaos of the to philosophize is has mineral earth,‭ ‬year ore,‭ ‬more precisely has sulphide,‭ ‬goal what Philalethes does not say,‭ ‬is that it is significant to return,‭ ‬to this raw matter,‭ ‬the spirit of life,‭ ‬essential and latent,‭ ‬that it possessed in the mine,‭ ‬when the great‭  ‬Principle‭ ‬ pushed it from the center to the periphery.‭
