Then The Bird of Hermes(cock;active ), then the fixed (passive;water) ouroborous dragon releasing the menstrum on the volatile?? Working on that one.
“Take in the NAME of the Lord, of thy Paradisiacal Water, of heavenly Water of Mercury, as much as thou wilt, put it into a glass to dissolve, and set it in a slow heat of Ashes, that it may just feel the warmth, then have ready well purified Gold for the Red, or Silver for the White Elixir, for in both the Processes are the same. Let your Gold or Silver be beaten as thin as leaf Gold, cast it by degrees into your dissolving Glass, that contains your blessed Water, as you did in the beginning with your Salt, and it will melt like Ice in Warm Water, and continue so to do till your Gold or Silver lie therein four days without dissolving, then it has received its due Pondus. Then put this dissolution as before into a round Glass, fill it two thirds parts full, seal it hermetically as before, let your Sigillum be well dried. Set it in the furnace of Balneum Vapori, make a fire and let it remain forty days, as before, then will the Gold or Silver be dissolved radically and will turn of the deepest black in the world, which as soon as you see, have your other drying furnace in readiness.

Thanks for the great reference. Just purchased the book, and would love to hear some more insight.
After reading the scroll, Ripley seems to be indicating that the Philosopher's stone is the transmutation of energy via meditation and such. The picture represents certain levels or chakras, the lowest being the Dragon and the crown being the highest. My two cents.
From The Emerald Tablet of Hermes...
The Sun is its father, the moon its mother,
the wind hath carried it in its belly, the earth its nurse.
The father of all perfection in the whole world is here.
Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth.
What you are talking about, with the dragon and the red sperm....it has nothing to do with the hallucinogens taken (at least not in any direct term).
