Im not sure what to make out of this, i thought i might give you a chance to reflect..


The "philosopher's stone" was a mythical substance that alchemists believed had magical properties and could even help humans achieve immortality. The manuscript turned up at an auction at Bonhams in Pasadena, California, on Feb. 16, where the Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) in Philadelphia bought it. The alchemy text will be available in an online repository for those interested in the history of modern chemistry, according to James Voelkel, the CHF's curator of rare books. The handwritten document contains instructions for making "philosophic" mercury that Newton copied from a text by another known alchemist. Written in Latin, its title translates to "Preparation of the [Sophick] Mercury for the [Philosophers'] Stone by the Antimonial Stellate Regulus of Mars and Luna from the Manuscripts of the American Philosopher."

Well, he died in 1726/7 so apparently he either didn't use this recipe/potion himself, or it didn't work.

Still a cool find OP - thanks for sharing with us here on ATS

Making of the Mercury "Fixing the Volatile".

There's a whole lot of alchemical lore behind this.

I didn't 'read anything' "that way", that is my "experience".
Knowledge = experience/perception.
Reading is just experience of words and concepts, not that to which they refer.
Reading about 'Love' is not Love!
I'm not sure how your your sarcasm negates anything that I said, simple as it might be (at first glance).
But if you ever want to have an actual discussion, let me know!
Namaste'... back atcha! *__-
