A crash course into the mysteries of alchemy, the ancient system of life, the universe and everything else. The origin of modern science, and a system to acheive goldness. The full film is in eight episodes, you should find the next part as soon as the one you are watching is ended.

I've looked into this a bit myself, and it's good to see it here.

It's summed up in the video when the text describes the processes of the one thing. That that which is above is like that which is below, and our goal is to transmute high spiritual principles into our all of our work, to manifest them physically, in solid matter.

It's alchemy (alchemy meaning "matter of the Black Land" or Egypt) as recorded by hermeticists. It's the transmutation of spiritual ideas/principles/subtle "substances" into solid, physical matter, or earth. Like I said in my previous post, it's carrying over the highest spiritual principles and order in the universe and imprinting it upon all of our physical world, in buildings or books or what have you, causing spirituality to be embedded into physicality.

Say you are a Hollywood director/producer, for example, and also a practicing alchemist. You might produce a film very much like "The Matrix" trilogy, which is just one big spiritual allegory. Or maybe you are an architect and design all sorts of beautiful and meaningful sacred geometry into your structures. Or a doctor or psychologist, you would be all about manifesting the divine within your patients.

Alchemists are all about manifesting any and all forms of divinity into material forms.

Transmuting the lead of ego into the gold of spirit.

Hermetic is sealed.

Well, Hermetic, points to Hermes, the Greek name of Toth, the Egyptian god of, well, anything mystic really, and wrote the ever elusive Papyrus of Toth, a book detailing the mechanisms of majik. People are said to die sudden deaths or dissapear while studying this book.

Like the video says in it's opening, alckemy comes from the Arabic words Al Khemet which means "from Egypt", or "from the black land".
