Asetianism & Alchemy

Post by Ankhhape on 14.06.08 10:53

I know that a relationship between The Aset Ka and Alchemy was mentioned in the AB but not elaborated upon.
I would be interested if someone could elaborate in this subject.

Hello, A'nen Sedjet.

Alchemy is also a subject I've developed myself for some time, nothing very deep, but enough to understand some of what Alchemy is at the moment.
Anyway, this art, which came from Kemet (al-kimiya), has been highly influenced by Hermeticism since Platonism. The Alchemy we know at the moment is highly influenced by Ancient Egyptian symbolism and the Emerald Tablet, but it has become something totally different than what it used to be in the Ancient Times. The Asetians are known for being the best Alchemists the world has ever seen. I also don't know much about this subject. But at least I made an introduction.

Best regards,
Karnath.

Egyptian alchemy [5000 BCE 400 BCE], beginning of alchemy

The concept is a very ancient one, which seems to answer to deep human motivations. It came to Medieval Europe by way of Egypt. When they invaded Egypt, which they called Khem, in the seventh century, the followers of the moon god discovered that the Egyptians were masters of the art of working in gold. They called gold-working al-kimiya - 'the art of the land of Khem' - and so, the word 'alchemy' was born.

- from 'Mysteries of Mind, Space & Time The Unexplained, Volume 1

The connection of al-Khem with Asetianism is still not clearly defines but this is a good start also . . . thanks Karnath for your post!

I really don't know much about modern or medieval Alchemy. I agree with what Karnath said, that the Asetians are known for being the best alchemists the world has ever seen. But as their own texts say, they are the alchemists of the soul, of the metaphysical. They have transformative powers over energies and souls. They have power to awaken other beings and to promote spiritual evolution. In my opinion that is their true alchemy.

But I believe that in the times of Kemet their alchemy was not just that of the metaphysical, since we can see their parallels also with science. And in the Egyptian days, science, religion and the metaphysical were all connected. Such a highly Asetian thing... no?

Em Hotep.

If I were to look at Alchemy in a metaphysical sense, I can agree that Asetians are the best alchemists in the world. Looking at the Asetian's Dark Kiss... Turning a soul of a human into a greater soul, one of an Asetian's.

Or as Victor said, they have powers to awaken other beings, even other Asetians, and they have the power to promote spiritual evolution. They can "move" people.

Looking at the Dark Kiss, and their power to "give" immortality, I can say and agree that Asetians were ever, and are, the best alchemists the world has ever had.

Hello again.

The concept of the Dark Kiss is indeed the most notable alchemical process I can think of. It's just beautiful. But there are other alchemical effects of the Asetians on everything they touch. Since most of us got into contact with the Asetians' Tradition, lots of things have changed deeply.

About their physical alchemy, I still have no idea of their fulfillments, but I'm very interested to know about it. I wonder if anyone here knows anything about that.

Best regards,
Karnath.
