Decoding Love Through Alchemy

Spirituality Adam Garden of Eden Alchemy Love

Some time ago, I told you about The Portal of Magic, and a club of eccentrics who spent their life studying and proving the theory of esoteric sciences. Then, I switched gears and talked about the bible, love, the gods and their champions. Today I begin retelling these stories through the eyes of Giustiniani Bono, Giustiniani Bono and The Arcadians.

Alchemy is the medieval forerunner of chemistry based on the supposed transformation of matter. It was concerned specifically with attempts to convert base metals into gold and to find a universal elixir.

After Adam was put in the Garden of Eden, essentially falling from androginity, (I will talk more about this soon) God followed him into “unreality”, the material world and created Eve to give him the possibility of redemption. She was his key. Böhme wrote” “ Christ turned Adam in his sleep from vanity(…) back to the image of an angel”, while he created Eve “from his essence, from the female part”. She is Adam’s matrix of celestial essence (Sophia). Blake called these female parts ‘emanation’ and the male parts ‘shadowy spectre’. The central task of earthly existence was the redemption of the ‘emanation’ and the unification of the two parts. The path there leads, according to Blake, through sensual delights and physical fulfillment, and it is distorted by false moral teachings and dogmatic religiosity as the chief instruments of sexual repression.
