The Cabaret

Of life, love and curiosity. Haunted manors, forests and ruins. Alchemy of mind and spirit. Water, the beauty of nature and interesting, calm places. Death, old books and watches. And some desserts and fashion too.

Arnoldo di Villanova. Rosarium Philosophorium. 1550. 

An entry into the vessel of transformation, A conjunction of the two primal archetypal forces, Their merging into an hermaphrodite in a death or nigredo stage, The extraction or ascent of one facet of the soul into the Spiritual realm (see related here), The descent of a spiritual dew or essence from above, The return of the extracted soul forces, The final formation of the Stone pictured as the resurrection of the hermaphrodite (top to bottom).

The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.
