Phantom Alchemical Plants of Quersitanus. Place in Space. If they were buried in the middle in the beginning of the work your subject would dry up instead of liquefying and putrefying. Every morning and night take out your glasses and shake them gently every one, by a circular motion, in order to promote the solution of the red earth, which is generally effected in two or three weeks time.
The whole earth dissolves into a deep ruby-red liquid, called by us Aqua Permanens or Chaos. After this liquefaction is accomplished the glasses are shaken no more, it being then unnecessary. In this manner, pursuing this most simple process, moving your glasses from one cask into the other, as often as your heat ceases, you must proceed with your horse dung bath during eight or nine months time, sometimes longer, as the exact time cannot be ascertained by any one the philosophers say "coque nec desine coquere" taking care never to suffer your work to become cold, so that the glasses may feel cold, not for one moment, as in that case your labour would be lost.
The surface of your oak stoppers will turn black and moist from the penetrating flegm. This causes the stoppers to swell and will burst the neck of every one of the globe-glasses, if you have not previously secured those necks with strips of linen pasted round them, and harpsichord wire wound over the linen, with a varnish over the whole, and with lute where the stopper joins the upper brim of the neck. This lute may be sealing wax dropped on all round by a burning candle, or rosin, or quick drying varnish, thickened with filings of iron, or any other good luting that can withstand warmth and moisture; but take care to keep the bottom of the stopper in sight, by not covering the neck of the glass quite so low as to hide it.
After liquefaction of the subject, putrefaction takes place immediately. At first you see veins resembling Mercury running down from the neck to the permanent ruby water. After those veins or streams are vanished the Peacock's Tail begins to appear all round the globe, sometimes coloured like the Rainbow, sometimes purple, green, nay Gold and Silver colours, most wonderfully beautiful, present themselves.
Dining putrefaction, which generally lasts days, sometimes longer, the subject smells through the stopper like a human corpse; sometimes so strongly as to be smelled all over the house; and the colours variegate most beautifully. After this putrefaction, which is called the Raven's-head, and which generally lasts days or longer, has continued its time, the stench diminishes gradually, and the subject becomes a dry brick-red coloured earth, red earth, or dust, which remains settled at the bottom of the glass.
This must not be moved nor disturbed. Then sublimation takes place, the Universal Spirit forsakes the dead body the red earth, ascends and descends invisibly and now produces general colours of large extent; one day the globe is black, some days after it becomes olive-green; after that sky-blue and beautiful parrot-green; then again purple or violet and crimson, mostly in general colours all round the globe, with beautiful small gold, silver, green and purple spots in the neck, like a Peacock's Tail or a Rainbow.
Sometimes it looks like polished copper, then like polished steel, and sometimes like bell-metal. After eight or nine months all appears white or, rather, like running mercury, of a metallic colour, and the Universal Spirit sublimes and fixes itself at the bottom of the oak stopper in the neck, and remains there for three or four weeks, as white as Silver; and is the regenerated Universal Spirit, corporified in a sweet fusible salt of Nature, above half fixed.
Below remains a foliated earth of a grey colour, called by us Terra foliata, which is of no use if you choose to take this white salt or sublimate out for multiplication, in order to make the White Medicine; but if you prefer continuing the Digestion, you must by no means open the glass nor meddle with it. This white sublimate from one glass will not be more than three, four, five or six grains at most. This is already a universal medicine for the animal creation, but it is to be carried further, to greater perfection.
This sweet salt or sublimate looks like copelled silver, or like the Moon in the Morning. Thummim i. Consummatum est Perfectio. The glasses are now to be removed to the middle of the bath and kept there, as the work now requires more heat. By Fahrenheit's thermometer the heat in the middle at the depth of 10 or 12 inches is generally from to degrees. Continue the digestion, coque nec desine coquere, renewing your horse dung every fortnight or three weeks, a few days before your heat ceases; removing your glasses from one cask into another from time to time as your heat may require.
This business from the White to the Red, requires sometimes three or four months, but the exact time cannot be determined. Now you are in possession of Thummim, Consummatum est, of Moses and Aaron. Dining the first and second digestion the subject dries and liquefies several times and undergoes many changes of colours, which appear all round the globe and in the neck of the glass, and never cease until the red sublimate is brought to perfection.
There remains again an earth, the Dust or red earth which is of no further use, being now totally deprived of fire, which is life. There are only three Universal passive fluids or humidities in Nature. These three, centrally, are very analogous to each other. For the Animal Kingdom the animal fluid or Blood is appointed, for the Vegetable Kingdom water, and for the Mineral Mercury, which is the radical humidity of metals.
Each of these three fluids contains fire, water, earth - Soul, spirit and body, sulphur, mercury, salt. From each of these fluids, if properly treated and duly animated by the Universal Spirit a Universal Medicine may be made.

Take four parts of the White or the Red Medicine, and ten parts of highly purified Mercury best revived from Cinnabar and make an amalgam as follows: Put the very accurately weighed ten parts of Mercury in a small china tea cup, or in a small smooth crucible, on a gentle charcoal fire, and let it stand until the Mercury begins to fume. Take it that moment from the fire avoid breathing the fumes and at the same instant add the four parts of the White or the Red Medicine previously enveloped in softened wax to the just fuming hot Mercury.
Stir it with a clean solid glass rod and you will have an amalgam. The multiplication is performed according to the table of Pythagoras [the Tetractys]; the ratio of one side of the equilateral triangle to the whole figure, thus. That is, 4 parts of the Medicine to 10 parts of the metallic water.
Process of Digestion with the Metallic Water or Ferment. This amalgam is put immediately into a small globe glass, of sufficient strength the neck previously secured with linen, wire and varnish to prevent it from bursting , not above 2 inches in diameter, or of such a capacity that the amalgam may fill no more than one fourth part of the globe in height. If the globe, however, be a little larger there will no harm: it is better a little too big than too small.
Secure your glass with an oak stopper, and lute it exactly as you did before. Place it in your bath, but now in the middle, where the greatest heat is, in or degrees.
Bury it in the horse dung so deep that the stopper may be a little under the surface of the bath. Do not move it except when you are obliged to place it in the other cask. By degrees the Universal Medicine unites radically with the Metallic water, and becomes in two or three months time, if the white sublimate has been employed, a silver white tinging Medicine, a dry substance extremely fusible, in one solid mass, after having passed through all the colours: but if the Red Medicine has been employed it becomes a Red tinging Metallic Medicine, which looks in the dark like a glowing or fiery coal.
This is the more perfect and multiplied Urim if the White, Thummim consummatum est , if the Red Medicine. Aaron wore them both in his breastplate. Both these medicines, the White as well as the Red, when perfectly fixed remain at the bottom of the globe- glass, and must be carefully separated from the earth or caput mortuum of the Mercury underneath it, sticking to the bottom of the glass under the medicine.
It is necessary to break off the neck of the glass. Both Medicines once multiplied or fermented with the metallic radical humidity Mercury do not require any further fermentation with gold; but tinge already, after this first multiplication.
One part of the White Medicine tinges 10 parts of mercury, lead, tin, copper, and iron into pure silver of 16 fine. One part of the Red Medicine, once multiplied, tinges 10 parts of Mercury, lead, silver, tin, copper and silver into pure gold of 24 carats fine.
The metallic medicines tinge each metal in proportion as they abound in Mercury, therefore Mercury itself in the greatest quantity, with very little loss, lead the next with a little more loss; then silver and tin; tin with more loss than lead; and lastly copper and iron with a great deal of loss and a large scorification of external metallic sulphur, as these two last metals contain but a small proportion of Mercury, which is the only metallic principle that is ameliorated and fixed. The Red Medicine once multiplied with the metallic water is the Thummim in its first multiplied state - the Exalted Universal Medicine striking at the root of every acute and chronic disease of man and animals, and tinging the mercurial principle of all the inferior metals and minerals into the purest and softest gold of 24 carats.
Both medicines are soluble in rectified spirit of wine and even in water. If the White medicine, once multiplied, be melted with pure silver - one part of the Medicine to four parts of pure refined silver - the silver becomes a white, brittle, glassy substance. The medicine is in this way Augmented in quantity only, but not in quality nor in power, as it now tinges no more than ten parts, in the same manner as before; but you thus obtain a greater quantity of the same medicine, for Transmutation only.
If the Red Medicine, once multiplied with mercury, be melted with pure refined gold, 1 part of the Medicine with 4 parts of pure gold, the gold becomes a brittle, deep orange coloured vitreous substance, and the Medicine is augmented in quantity, but not in quality nor in power; it tinges only as before, 1 part tinging ten of inferior metals into most pure gold, but you have more medicine in quantity.
The White and the Red Medicines thus fermented with silver or with gold are no longer soluble in Rectified Spirit of Wine, and much less in water, and therefore are no longer medicinal for the human body or for animals; on the contrary, they are now highly pernicious, corrosive and destructive to animal life, and also to vegetable; and they cannot be multiplied any further by the metallic humidity.
Second Multiplication of the Medicine viz, in Quality, by the metallic waters. The Second and every subsequent Multiplication of the medicine, with the metallic water Mercury in quality and power, is done exactly like the first, according to the table of Pythagoras, as has been mentioned and explained before. Make your amalgam as before, with the same accuracy and precaution - 4 parts of medicine to 10 parts of pure Mercury - put your amalgam in a globe glass, so that three or four parts at least remain empty; lute the neck with the oak stopper, and bury it again in the middle of your bath where the greatest heat prevails.
This process will be finished in a much shorter time than the first; and every subsequent multiplication is sooner accomplished than the foregoing, because the Multiplied medicine increases wonderfully in fusibility, the power of penetrating, and fixity, and therefore it is sooner multiplied than before. It passes again through all the colours, dies and is regenerated as before. This can also be done over a lamp provided your heat is nicely regulated so as to imitate that necessary, gentle animating heat of horse dung.
During the first labours of liquefaction and putrefaction, we prefer the horse dung to the lamp, as the most natural, though divers philosophers have used divers means. You will again find your exalted medicine at the bottom of the globe upon a small caput mortuum or mercurial earth, from which Earth you must carefully separate your medicine; which is easily done as the substances are distinct enough.
