In this manner, it conquered general favor and was encountered everywhere, firmly established at the different levels of the social ladder.
Whoever encounters this truth of letters, of words, and of continuity can never, while expressing himself, fall below conception: Nothing allows us to claim that he was. Our predecessors were neither insane nor impostors, and the mother idea which guided their works, the very one which 21 infiltrates scientific spheres of our times, is foreign to the hypothetical principles, whose fluctuation and vicissitudes of which our rimes have no idea.
Here and there, its genius succeeded in resisting for a long time the imposition of the new directives. Hie lapis est subtus te, supra te, erga te et circa te 1 2mnemonic verses entangle themselves, whimsically engraved with a stiletto on soft stone; one of them dominates, carved in Gothic cursive writing: Understanding only in part the books they studied, they mistook appearance for reality.
They dream of imprisoning nature into a formula, of putting life into an equation. The medieval colossus did not collapse all at once in the decline of the 15th century. Yet, it is not enough for the philosopher to only notice the elongation of an iron bar submitted to heat, he must know that metal under the influence of caloric radiations opens its pores, distends its molecules, and increases its surface and volume.
I say to them once more, that they will never learn this sublime science by means of books, and that it can only be learned through divine revelation, hence it is called Divine Art, or through the means of a good and faithful master; and since there are very few of them to whom God has granted this grace, there are also very few who teach it”.
Finally, an anonymous author of the 18th century 7 gives other reasons for the difficulty that we encounter in deciphering the enigma: Pharamond was, it is said, the first King of France.
After all we should not forget that the treatises which have reached us were composed during the most beautiful alchemical period, the one which embraces the last three centuries of the Middle Ages.

Such is the analogical truth that alchemy has tried to practice. So one recognizes, without being able to oppose the least serious argument to our thesis, that the chemical formula dwellnigs water is, if not false, at least incomplete and truncated.
Similarly”, he continued, “in music this truth is never encountered without our soul, immediately elevated, blindly going for it.
Attacked from all sides, its prestige disappears; enthusiasm decreases, opinion is modified. If these problems could be correctly formulated in an equation, we could have the hope of resolving them. Nevertheless, one could not maintain that it has been lost completely; a few initiates preserve its rules and know how to make advantage of the resources it offers in the transmission of secret truths or use it as a mnemonic key to teaching.
Those who persevere in spite of failure have a right to our regard. What we want to demonstrate without leaving the alchemical domain, is the grave error which dominates all of modern science and which prevents it from recognizing this universal principle which animates substance, to whatever kingdom it belongs.
In the elevated regions of the atmosphere when the sun reaches its zenith, the cupolas of hot-air balloons are covered with frost and the passengers suffer from intense cold. It is the culminating point, the apogee of form and boldness, the marvelous phase where spirit, the divine flame, imposes its signature on the fulcanelll creations of Gothic thought.
The Dwellings of the Philosophers : Fulcanelli :
It does not call to their authority, nor does it remember their names; it only takes pride in having obliterated them”. From the simple shock of cold and dark vibrations against the gaseous molecules of our atmosphere.
This metallic will, the very soul of metal, is clearly made evident in one of the beautiful experiments by Fulcanelpi.
It is possible that one day we will discover the principle of fabricating gold. But if it meets with resistance, the energy immediately reveals itself with the qualities and in the form of fire. The fondness for the rebus, last echo of the sacred language, fulcabelli considerably weakened in our day. This house belonged to the chapter. But I do not believe our century will witness the realization of the dream of the alchemists”.
The Dwellings of the Philosophers
Dwelljngs development, its progress was prodigious. Nothing would seem more paradoxical nor more contrary to appearances, and yet nothing is truer. It would be interesting to know why our children, among so many admirable discoveries whose daily applications they have before their eyes, rather know Pascal and his wheelbarrow than the men of genius to whom we owe steam, the battery, beet sugar, and the stearic candle. I adopt the dogma it is one of the unity of matter, the hypothesis of the evolution philosopher chemical elements from the lightest to the heaviest atomic weight, and even the theory — imprudently called law of periodicity — of Mendeleev.
Henri Poincare — “Science cannot, and must not say never! And, such is also the hermetic idea, which it has seemed necessary to us to emphasize first of all.
However, we repeat, alchemy has nothing to do with these successive contributions. Dr Max Nordeau — “Allow me to abstain from all discussions about the transmutation of matter. We have stated earlier that archemists regulated their works according to hermetic theory — at least as they understood it — and that this was the point of departure for fertile experiments with purely chemical results.
Therefore be no longer surprised by the ease with which you understand the meaning of a language which your ears have never heard. Is that a mere concession the moderns are making to the ancients? Their interpreters — those marvelous and modest carvers of images — do not deceive us and could not be mistaken.
On out cathedrals the scenes of the Last Judgment show grimacing demons, distorted, monstrous, more comical than terrible; as far as the damned, the benumbed accursed are concerned, they are cooking in their pots over a slow heat without useless regret or genuine suffering.
The School peremptorily does not discuss, it decides. Myron or Myre-rond phonetically in French can be read as round mirror. High mountains remain crowded with snow despite the heat of summer.

A century later, the same reasoning loses a great part of its value; one cannot dispute, for example, that the works of the epic of the round Table have a certain charm which arises from a more careful form. But while the latter aspire only to flatter the eye or to charm the senses, the artistic and literary works of the Middle Ages are founded on philsoophers thought, true and concrete, the cornerstone of an immutable science, the indestructible basis of Religion.
A number of these figures randomly found in narrow streets, taverns, schools, sacristies, workshops, may be altogether marked or overdone, but in a picturesque tone, with a concern for character, for the sense of joy, for generous lines.
