Transmutation is a secret power that shapes our reality, for better or worse, and I am going to reveal its power to you now!
First of all, the word transmutation has gotten a bit of a bum rap or raw deal in this modern time, it is now associated with fantasy and what the world now terms pseudoscience, which is akin to the modern version of blasphemy or sacrilege, against the modern gods of technology. But transmutation is really just causality, the art of cause and effect, but in the context of inner alchemy, a causality that involves the use of forces and capabilities far beyond the narrow scope of modern rational secularism.
Transmutation, using accepted modern terms, is the ancient practice of transforming one physical substance into another. However, for inner alchemists, transmutation holds a much deeper meaning. It is the ability to turn the un-manifest into the manifested, a key component to reality, true freedom from all material need and suffering, and eventually even the key by which the miraculous can be achieved, – the ability to defy death itself.
But what is the definition of transmutation generally? In the context of the modern version of alchemy, this often meant attempting to transform base metals into precious ones, such as led into gold. However, modern science still does not understand, or at least cannot yet through its limited set of acceptable laws know, how to make such transmutations easy or cost effective. Modern academia has lost sight of the great power and promise of the much older science of inner alchemy, that could reveal the true power of transmutation and divulge the great malleability of what is now considered to be, the hard physical world.
Despite being snubbed as pseudoscience, the concept of transmutation remains relevant today. This is especially true in our ultra-materialistic time, where outer focus and skeptic secularism are turning the world into a cognitive and physical prison. For inner alchemists, transmutation begins, with the ability to transform limiting beliefs, negative emotions, and unhelpful patterns of behavior into positive qualities that support personal evolution. It involves recognizing the inherent potential within oneself and others, and cultivating the skills and mindset necessary to bring about positive change. And let me add that this change is not just immaterial and therefore inconsequential to the modern world, but a true change, a reconfiguration of actual personal essence that has the possibility to change a person from the inside out, and make them something beyond the constricted modern individual that is stuck, caged, by physicality.
The origins of transmutation can be traced back to alchemy, a far older discipline than some suspect, that aimed to transform base metals into gold or silver, and discover the elixir of life that would grant immortality. But as I have written in my books, most of the information that survives today is about the Puffers, outer alchemy as opposed to inner, which is flawed at its core because it seeks to do what is supposedly impossible by its own materialistic rulebook. But to keep it simple here for the sake of this video, we could say that alchemists believed that all matter was composed of the four elements – earth, air, fire, and water – and that these elements could be transformed into each other through the use of symbols, experiments, and mystical rituals.
While alchemy may seem like a pseudoscience today within the perceptive constriction of reason, and the outer materialistic world view, it laid the foundation for modern chemistry and medicine. Alchemists discovered new compounds, developed laboratory techniques, and pioneered the concept of chemical reactions. Their work paved the way for scientists like Isaac Newton and Antoine Lavoisier, who established the laws of modern chemistry. Moreover, alchemical practices led to the development of pharmaceuticals and the creation of medicinal remedies.
All modern science became the way of causality, the way of transmutation. In Biology this transformative causality, transmutation, is focused on the evolution of life, the process of change and evolution in living organisms. The earliest theory of biological transmutation was transformism, which posited that one species could transform into another through natural processes. This idea was later refined by Charles Darwin and others into the theory of natural selection, which explains, using modern materialistic ideas, how species adapt to their environments and diversify into new forms. Transformations have been observed by modern science in bacteria, viruses, and even humans, where adaptation, which is yet another new word for transmutation, has played a crucial role in our survival and success.
Physics, the science of matter and energy, also deals with transmutation. Nuclear transmutation, the conversion of one element or nuclide into another, has revolutionized the modern understanding of the universe. The ability to transmute elements has reshaped the modern global landscape, both literally and figuratively.
Philosophy, the pursuit of wisdom and understanding, explores transmutation in a more abstract sense. It seeks to grasp the nature of reality and the meaning of life, inquiring into the possibility of transforming mental states, moral values, and spiritual realities.
Plato, for instance, believed that the human soul could ascend from the realm of shadows to the realm of forms through intellectual and moral purification. This journey of self-improvement and enlightenment is central to many philosophical traditions. In Eastern thought, the cycle of suffering can be transcended through meditation, ethical practice, and spiritual growth.
And this last philosophical definition of transmutation comes closest to what inner alchemy is. And really, sadly, this is all that it can be in this modern time, a philosophy. But this is a crime because inner alchemy and its methods of transmutation are infinitely practical and they are so much more than mere mental abstraction. But cycles must play out as they must, and this is a cycle of time where outer focus and materialism are the only thing that matters. This is a cycle of time that is focused almost completely on a narrow form of mechanical reason. It is a human cycle that cannot see what is hidden before its eyes in the odd angles and the liminal spaces that inner alchemy and its version of transmutation dares to explore.
Understanding transmutation is critical in the late phase of this rational and material cognitive cycle. However, the modern world has alienated us from the spiritual or inner reality, making it difficult to understand transmutation. So, one way to understand it is through the distinction between the outer alchemy of the rational and purely physical world, and the inner alchemy of the un-manifest and the manifested, which is far more powerful and explained in detail in the book “The Art of Transmutation“.
Outer alchemy involves working with physical substances to create supposedly tangible transformations. Inner alchemy, on the other hand, involves working with intangible substances, such as thoughts, the inner feeling sense, and intention, to create lasting transformations of a highly practical nature that can be more precious than any purely material substance or aspiration.
The outer alchemy of the physical world is governed by the strict and narrow rational laws of physics and chemistry, which seem impossibly rigid and unalterable to the point that transmutation seems like a fantasy. However, the transmutation of inner alchemy, of the un-manifest and the manifested, operates according to different rules, where the limitations of the cage of the physical world do not apply. Here, inner alchemists can tap into the infinite possibilities of the universe, using their minds and intentions to shape reality and manifest their desires.
Through the practice of inner alchemy, individuals can transcend the life and death routine of the average person, reaching true freedom and eventual immortality. By learning to manipulate the building blocks of reality, inner alchemists can create a world that reflects their highest desires and goals. They can overcome the limitations of space and time, achieving feats that would be considered impossible in the physical world.
Transmutation is a powerful concept that holds the key to unlocking true freedom and immortality. Through the practice of inner alchemy, individuals can tap into the infinite possibilities of the universe, transforming themselves and their surroundings in ways that are thought impossible by modern reason. Whether we choose to embrace this path is ultimately up to us, but for those who dare to dream big and go beyond the cage of the modern cycle, the art of transmutation offers a roadmap to achieving the impossible!
- Transmutation: This is the process of changing one element into another. While it has been dismissed as pseudoscience, the concept of transmutation is more relevant today than ever.
- Relevance: Transmutation is relevant today because it challenges our understanding of the natural world and the limits of science.
- Materialism: Our ultra-materialistic time is characterized by an emphasis on the physical world and a skepticism of anything that cannot be measured or observed with the physical senses.
- Outer focus: The focus on the external world has led to a neglect of the inner world of thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
- Skeptic secularism: This is a worldview that is skeptical of anything that cannot be proven by science. It is characterized by a rejection of religion and spirituality.
- Cognitive and physical prison: The emphasis on materialism and skepticism has led to a world that is focused on the physical and neglects the inner world. This has created a cognitive and physical prison that limits our understanding of the world and ourselves.
