"It will be said that it is pantheism to assert that matter, under all the forms which it presents, is only groups of aggregates of sympathetic molecules, of a substance unalterable in its individualities; a thinking, acting substance. Let us not deny what we are unable to explain. God is all that is, without everything that is being individually God. Etheric force has been compared to the trunk of a tree, the roots of which rest in Infinity. The branches of the tree correspond to the various modifications of this one force, - heat, light, Electricity, and its close companion force, magnetism. It is held in suspension in our atmosphere. It exists throughout the universe. Actual science not admitting a void, then all things must touch one another. To touch is to be but one by contiguity, or there would be between one thing and another something which might be termed space, or nothing. Now, as nothing cannot exist, there must be something between "the atomic triplets" which are, according to the Keely theory, found in each molecule. This something in the molecule he affirms to be "the universal fluid," or molecular ether. One thing touching another, all must therefore be all in all, and through all, by the sensitive combination of all the molecules in the universe, as is demonstrated by Electricity, galvanism, the loadstone, etc. If we account for the intelligent action of molecules by attributing it to what has been variously called "the universal fluid," "the electric fluid," "the galvanic fluid," "the nervous fluid," "the magnetic fluid," it will only be substituting one name for another; it is still some part or other of the organization which discerns and joins to itself a portion of one of the fluids referred to, or one of these fluids which discerns and mingles with the material molecules; it is still the life of the part, the life of the molecule, life individualized in all and through all." Bloomfield-Moore, Keely and His Discoveries
"This is a universe of the One Thing.
"That One Thing is Mind.
"There is but One substance.
"The One substance cannot be divided into many substances, or many parts.
"There is but One Cosmic Substance. This one substance appears to be divided into many substances known as the elements of matter. The one universal substance first divides itself into the appearance of two opposites, one on either side (of the inertial line). Then two others appear as two more opposites of the one. Then two more of increasing energy and harder crystals appear. Then the cosmic pendulum forms one more which registers itself as neither one opposite nor the other, but is a bi-sexual element of maximum opposition in all periodicities of motion. These seven apparently different substances of matter are but different states of motion of the one substance. They are the seven tones of an octave; and there are ten octaves of seven tones each. In the last four octaves are many mid-tones, each one registering its own state of motion. Man calls these various states of motion of the one substance by many names, and they appear to be many substances. The apparent difference between the many is due solely to difference in motion and not to substance. Many states of motion are possible but there are not two substances in the universe. There is only one substance. There can only be one substance. As all states of motion are measurable and are under the absolute control of mind, and as man is mind, man may, with dawning knowledge of causes, change any one state of motion into any other state of motion, and by so doing transmute any one substance into any other one. The granite rock may become gold, or radium, at the will of man." Russell, The Universal One
"The one substance vibrates in different dynamic degrees, and sound, heat, light, Electricity, are the effections of the one substance by specific degrees of the One Energy, and there is no difference between anything such as Electricity and, say iron, save in rate of effection." [Cayce (195-70)]
Hermes called me the Sun and the Moon. Riplaeus called me the green lion. Our author called me hermaphrodite, but I pay no attention to that. It makes no difference. Nor does it matter what the sophists call me, for they learn nothing for all their trouble except: (1) I am One Substance, not two; (2) In me is Bernard's little fountain;
(3) I am dry water, subtle pure; (4) I am raised up by the power of Mars, as commanded by Philaleth, the famous Adept who coagulates my esoteric nature with Mercury.
EXPLANATION OF PARAGRAPH 3
In their books for the curious world, the adepts spoke in symbols.
For example, the Stone is made of One Substance. It is a thing that is a simple unity, not a composite. It has equal parts of Earth,
Water, Fire, and Air. It possess equal attributes of heat and cold, moisture and dryness. It arises from liquid and solid Fire. Thus, in the first verse, Hermes calls it the Sun because it is made of Solid Fire; and in the second verse, he calls it the Moon because it is made of Liquid Mercury. Riplaeus calls it the green lion, because it grows more fiery whenever the Celestial Fire is inflamed.
The Master Norton called it a Hermaphrodite, since Hermes said it is both solar and lunar. But don't make the mistake made by most current-day alchemists. This single thing with dual characteristics is not a composite constructed by human hands. As it says in verse 13: By my nature I am One Substance.
And in verse 15:1 am Dry Water, subtle and pure, and I am powered with Mars energy. That means, that in the center there is a subtle Fire. The Mars energy causes this Fire to rise up and become strengthened by the Celestial Fire. According to the words of the philosopher: Give the fire to the Fire and mercury to Mercury.
Four elements are sealed in me.
Sulphur and Mercury are dissolved in me.
I am savage, deadly, smoky, poisonous, solid, liquid, constant, and gaseous.
Not animal, vegetable, fungus, arsenic, vitriol-alaun, salt, sulphur, mineral, gold, nor any metal.
I am White Mercury. I have only one root and two stems.
Everyone despises me, because I don't look too cool in my dull gray coat. Yet, I am like the prize-winning beehive that produces the best honey for lords, princes, and the king. I equally valuable for everyone, high and low, rich and poor.
EXPLANATION OF CANON 3
We are informed in Verse 1 that the chaotic-philosophical Water is not the same as the Water Element. There the author states: the four elements are sealed in me. And to show us the origin of his central Sulphur and astral Mercury, he adds: flowing with sulphur and mercury. The next 2 verses clarify that this hermaphrodite Substance is both solid and gaseous.
First he describes the dark, earthly, liquid characteristic, saying:
I am wild, deadly, smoky, and poisonous. No man can face it without
crying out and suffering from the most terrible poison. None dare
touch it nor taste its repulsive smell. Yet even its raw state, it
effects wonderful cures. Also, after a little preparation with small
doses of ADMIRACULA PRAESTANDA, it can be touched or taken without
But the following verse describes its characteristic as solid, liquid, constant, and gaseous. The author already named the interior and exterior forms of this One Substance. But, admittedly, God and the adepts do not permit discovering any clearer revelation.
Next, the author states what it isn't: not animal, vegetable, fungus, arsenic, vitriol, alum, salt, sulphur, mineral, gold, nor metal. So this universal Tincture is not from the animal, vegetable, mineral, or metal kingdoms. These words bring particular dizziness to the brains of today's alchemists, who will ask: what is it then? Well, it has certainly already been named several times, but to repeat it one more time superfluously: (1) It is the purest offspring of the gaseous mercury in the belly and center of the Earth. (2) It is a stone in liquid form. (3) It is an invisible solid. (4) It grows up like the mustard seed. (5) It works through the astral fire. (6) It transmutes everything it touches into a liquid-solid like itself.
(7) It is a fiery water or air which cold Saturn congeals on top of the Earth. Enough said, since anyone who does not understand this now is beyond help, and further words will not help, for this is essential to any real Alchemy. ( 8 ) Manipulations, spells, and magical formulae do not apply here, because it is a dual spiritual-physical material, intractible to sophists. (9) It is White Mercury transmuted into gray, liquid form. (10) Even though it is laying at everyone's feet, philosophy cannot explain it better than as a unity with balanced dual characteristics.
