In the writings of Paracelsus
and many other European, Indian and also Chinese alchemists,
one can find numerous descriptions, sounding rather wild
to modern ears, of the effects of these essences – in
regard to their medical properties, but also to their
long-term influence upon spiritual development.
For instance Paracelsus (1493-1541), the famous German
alchemist and physician, was enthusiastic about the gold
Potabile“: „Of all Elixirs, Gold is supreme and the most
important for us, because it can keep the body indestructible. Drinkable
gold will cure all illnesses, it renews and restores.“
Reports written by Chinese alchemists are even older. About 250 years
after the first Chinese description of alchemistic drinkable gold,
the Tsan Tung Chi from 142 A.D. states that through its ingestion
Chinese alchemists had acquired an imperishable “diamond body”.
For that reason they were called “The Eight Immortals”.
That all this hasn’t sprung from the minds of some eccentric
alchemists is proved by the practical experience of many therapists
and also by the pioneering investigations done by alternative researchers.
With the help of new kinds of diagnostic equipment, the effects of “Aurum
Potabile” have been investigated in recent years by the German
LIFE TEST Institute, an independent private institute dedicated to
biophysical research. Three research methods were employed:
a highly developed form of meridian energy measurement;
a special type of Kirlian photography;
All test results confirm that alchemistic essences do indeed
harmonize and stimulate the human energy system in extraordinary
ways and have an energetic and mental potency that otherwise
can only be reached by very experienced meditators or skilled
therapists. The following topics have been researched so far:
