And this for anyone still lurking about... It is really hard to come up with real questions about Alchemy when given the opportunity, isn't it? I
thought I had enough exposure and experience to formulate meaningful questions but I have just learned that I do not. In the face of what appears to
be a true revelation my questions have all gone mute. So it is back to studying for me. I bet the same for many of you, Huh?
I know there are many like myself who are learners and are trying to make sense of what just went down here.
So I feel compelled to add to this thread 'The Riddle of The Sphinx' or what is sometimes referred to as 'The Powers of The Sphinx'... From the
conclusion of Fulcanelli's Mysteries of the Cathedrals
... I have re-written them a little to reflect the new paradigm...
By constant exercise of the faculties of observation and reasoning and by meditation, the novice will climb the steps leading to KNOWLEDGE
A simple imitation of natural processes, skill combined with ingenuity, the insight born of sudden realization will secure for him the POWER
Having obtained that, he will still have need of patience, constancy, an account at the local Lab Supply outlet, and the ability to check on his Stone
at least every other week. Brave and resolute, he will be enabled by the certainty and confidence born of a strong faith to DARE
Finally, when success has crowned so many months or so of hard labour, when his or her desires have become accomplished, The Wise Man (or Woman),
despising the vanities of the world will draw near to the humble, the disinherited, to all those who suffer, struggle and weep here below. As an
Anonymous and vociferous disciple of eternal Nature, an Apostle of Eternal Charity, he will remain faithful to his vow of serving mankind.
In Science, in goodness, The Adept must ever-more SHARE THE GOODS. (Normally this says KEEP SILENT but I have changed it. I know that Fulcanelli and
crew will understand).
Best of Luck to Everyone...
Oh and, You guys seriously need to overhaul your faith in humanity. Given the Stone folks will do the right thing. I just know this. So I guess it is
a matter of opinion. I think the few Black Brothers that would do something bad with it would stick out like sore thumbs and would be dealt with
accordingly. I don't know I just see it very differently. Have a good one. See you on the UFO threads.

P.S. I realized that I should go ahead and break this down for anyone interested.
To KNOW: The head of Man ( Aquarius)
To WILL: The haunches of the Bull, (Taurus)
To DARE: The Claws of the Lion (Leo)
To SHARE THE GOODS (previously To KEEP SILENT): It used to be The Wings of The Eagle but I am going to replace the Eagle with...
Yes... Foghorn Leghorn. (Scorpio)
So there you have the New Powers of The Sphinx.
