It’s that time of year again.

Innocently I thought I would have a look at the at the images on the British Library website relating to Alchemy but everything seems to have purpose at present. Below are three images which caught my eye.
WordPress have introduced a new AI section in their Gutenberg editor and I wrote Alchemy into the machine and abracadabra, within thirty seconds AI had typed this.
Alchemy is an ancient philosophical and protoscientific tradition that aimed to transform base metals into noble metals, such as gold, and to discover the elixir of life, a substance that was believed to grant eternal youth and immortality. Alchemists pursued these goals through a combination of experimental laboratory work, spiritual practices, and symbolic language.
The practice of alchemy dates back thousands of years and was prominent in various cultures, including ancient Egypt, Greece, and China. It reached its peak during the European Renaissance, where alchemists like Paracelsus and Isaac Newton made significant contributions to the field.
One of the key concepts in alchemy is the idea of transmutation, the transformation of one substance into another through a series of processes. Alchemists believed that by purifying and refining various materials, they could uncover the hidden properties that would lead to the desired transformations.
Alchemy is often associated with symbolism and mysticism. Many alchemical texts and manuscripts are filled with intricate diagrams, cryptic symbols, and allegorical language. These symbols represent the different stages of the alchemical process and the spiritual transformation that the alchemist undergoes in their quest for knowledge and enlightenment.
While modern science has largely moved away from the goals and methods of alchemy, the legacy of this ancient practice can still be seen in the fields of chemistry, medicine, and psychology. The alchemical tradition paved the way for advancements in laboratory techniques, the discovery of new substances, and the development of new theories.
Today, alchemy continues to fascinate and inspire people with its blend of science, spirituality, and symbolism. It serves as a reminder of the human desire to explore the mysteries of the natural world and our quest for transformation and transcendence.

My opinion is that the Self is in a Limbo or Bardo and I want to go out the right door. I don’t fancy another trip on this bus. Navigating the mind field is tricky.
