The documentary discusses the history of alchemy and its power to transmute metals. It also explores the idea that alchemists were working with a deep spiritual energy, not just conducting physical experiments. While the mystery of alchemy still intrigues many people, it is important to remember that most alchemists were not able to achieve pure gold without resorting to fraud.

  • 00:00:00 The documentary follows a group of people who are known as alchemists, and their mysterious, dangerous search for knowledge and the divine elixir of eternal life in the early 1600s. The search is the pursuit of perfection, and the mysteries abound in the history of alchemy, leaving symbols of the art still present in some of Europe's great cathedrals. One of the most famous alchemists of the Renaissance was Isaac Newton, who was obsessed with alchemy and whose secret passion was for the science of transmutation, which modern scientists have been able to achieve with common metals in just a few hours. Alchemists of ancient Egypt were also known for their skills in gold and silver mining, and it is no surprise that riches and divine knowledge were often intertwined in their quest. The art of alchemy has its origins in ancient Egypt, and is still shrouded in mystery for many.
  • 00:05:00 The documentary discusses alchemy, a mysterious art that sought to transform ordinary materials into precious metals. One of the main ingredients used in alchemy was mercury, which was believed to be the quintessence of all perfection. The documentary explores the history and symbolism of the alchemy symbol known as the Hermaphrodite. It aims to answer the question of what the alchemists were thinking when they used this image.
  • 00:10:00 The secrets of alchemy persisted for centuries during the decline of the Roman Empire and the decline of classical civilization in 600 AD. In the year 600 AD, the Muslim army of Muhammad conquered Egypt. At the same time, Europe was languishing in its dark medieval era. Alchemy was practiced by Arab alchemists in the 11th century, and these great minds learned their craft from their Islamic counterparts. Despite the opposition of the Catholic Church, the art of alchemy flourished in the Middle Ages. The secret art of medieval cathedrals, built in the 12th and 13th centuries, was the height of Christian splendor. There were also ancient mystical symbols in the dazzling facades of these churches. Chemical symbols condemned by the Vatican were found in some of these buildings. Some believe that Paris' Cathedral of Notre Dame contains pagan symbols hidden among the Christian images. A woman shows a serpent apparently surrounded by flames. A soldier is fighting bravely against invisible enemies. An unknown figure examines a mysterious bottle. Just as Christian symbols lack meaning, alchemical symbols appear frequently in chemistry. There can be no doubt that there are symbols of chemical substances in another, also most cathedrals have symbols of chemical substances hidden in niches
  • 00:15:00 In 1284, an Italian monk was arrested and imprisoned for heresy because of his alchemy, which was said to involve working with the devil. The majority of medieval alchemists were persecuted and many died in the flames of accusation of witchcraft. In 317 AD, thirty-three years after Roger Bacon was imprisoned, Pope John XXII decided to put an end to alchemy once and for all. Any alquimists who practice it will be punished with a fine to the public treasury in favor of the needy. Even in the face of papal prohibition, many alchemists persisted, knowing their lives were at risk both physically and spiritually. Mercury and arsenic were among the chemicals alchemists experimented with, and among the compounds that can be made with these elements are the fulminated mercury compound, which is the main chemical ingredient in gunpowder, and all different types of arsenic. In 1.382 AD, Nicolas Flamel claimed to have finally achieved gold purity by converting mercury into gold. This story seems fictional, but the Paris municipal records from the Middle Ages document an astonishing fact--early in the 15th century, Nicolas Flamel and his wife had financed 14 hospitals, three churches, and seven other churches. Today, even after 400 years have passed
  • 00:20:00 During the Middle Ages, alchemy was a secretive pursuit that risked angering the Catholic church. However, as the times were changing, the Renaissance was upon Europe, and with it, the dawn of modern alchemy. The practice flourished during this time, with many European princes having alchemists on their payroll. However, the alchemists' financial worries gradually turned into new concerns; now, they had to prove that their skills were real. In order to do this, they often had to transport metals like gold and silver in exchange for their services. Sometimes, the alchemists would be tortured for their secrets, and if they failed to produce the desired results quickly, they would be executed. One alchemist, however, managed to survive by fleeing to a different country. Despite the risks, the allure of living off the rich and famous was too much for him, and alchemy became a popular profession in the Renaissance. Today, we are still mystified by some of the alchemists' abilities from centuries ago, such as transmuting metals into different forms. However, despite their amazing feats, these alchemists were not able to achieve pure gold without resorting to fraud. In fact, most of them were killed by
  • 00:25:00 In the 16th century, alchemist and mystic Teofrasto claimed to have found a way to create gold from other metals, and his experiments with mercury led to the development of the first vaccines. Teofrasto was highly respected but also controversial, as he was credited with curing multiple diseases that traditional treatments had failed to cure. In contrast to medieval superstition, which claimed that miners died from exposure to ore, Teofrasto demonstrated that they died from lung diseases caused by the inhalation of mineral dust. When European countries were devastated by a new and terrible disease called syphilis, Teofrasto dared to try using alchemy to treat it, and was eventually successful. Celso, one of Teofrasto's critics, argued that the use of mercury in alchemy was dangerous, but Teofrasto openly admitted to using human sperm in his experiments and buried the subject for 40 days in horse manure after fertilizing it with human blood. The results of his experiments were revealed to the world in a public demonstration in which a fully functional human being was created by Teofrasto. Celso is now considered one of the foremost medical pioneers of all time, and his work in alchemy has had a lasting impact on the field.
  • 00:30:00 According to this documentary, alchemy is a centuries-old practice that involves the transmutation of metals into other substances. Alchemists believed that they could achieve this goal through the use of various substances and techniques, some of which were very dangerous. Isaac Newton was one of the most famous alchemists of all time, and his work on gravity and calculus was largely based on his alchemical experiments. However, few people know that he also conducted alchemical experiments in secret. One theory is that he was trying to create a substance that could revive dead people, but his efforts were ultimately unsuccessful. In 1936, 200 years after his death, researchers discovered notes hidden away from his alchemical experiments, which revealed that he had been working on a mysterious project for years. These notes suggest that Newton believed in the mechanical philosophy, which states that matter is only formed of moving particles. He was too limited in his thinking to realize that alchemists were looking for something more than just physical principles. Despite his efforts, Newton remained obsessed with alchemy until his death. In the end, his mysterious alchemical experiments may have led to his death from mercury poisoning.
  • 00:35:00 Isaac Newton's hair had recently been analyzed, and it was found that his mercury concentration was much higher than normal. It seems plausible that Newton experienced mental instability as a result of his alchemy experiments. However, after a few years of struggling, Newton recovered and lived to 85 years old. He died in 1727. over the last few decades, scientists have ceased believing that metals are living beings, but a few eccentric alchemists continue to practice alchemy. In the 1920s, one of Europe's leading thinkers, the Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung, made a surprising announcement: his patients saw mysterious images in their dreams, images that had no relation to their personal lives. During the years andum thought about these dreams, he gradually came to realize that they were encoded in ancient alchemical texts. He found the symbols and realized that they matched the images seen in his patients' dreams. Jung believed that the strange images of alchemy were messages from the physical world, coming to troubled souls in all times. Alchemical symbolism has a lot to say about the structure of the unconscious. Dreams of contemporary men and women contain veiled images and metaphors that can be found in medieval texts with a "key." Jung spent the rest of his life developing and defending this new
  • 00:40:00 The documentary discusses the history of alchemy, its power to transform metals with the help of high-speed neutron bombardment, and the first successful transmutation of metals with this technology. Alchemists of the past were believed to have had access to an energy source that is now found in modern nuclear accelerators, but this does not seem to be justification enough for thinking that alchemists were capable of truly transmuting metals only because modern physicists can. Instead, what is important is trying to find the underlying energy that the alchemist conceived and worked with to create a justification for the modern theory of belief that elements can be transmuted. For me, this is an evidence of the alchemist's deep spiritual pursuit, not just the process of conducting an experiment. Contemporary alchemists see alchemy not as the search for riches, but as the search for deeper truths. While I am not an alchemist who hopes to create gold, I am interested in alchemy because it has fascinated me since I was a child. The mystery of alchemy still intrigues me and transports me to the desired quest for gold of God and eternal life. This dream is as powerful today as it was throughout the last 2000 years.
