Part 1 - On magnetite
"In the human brain, pyramidal cells are present and arranged in layers in
the cortex of the two cerebra."[H. Coetzee, Ph.D.]
[ Brain Magnetite ]
Many people ask themselves, why did Egypt's pyramids have the
shape of a pentahedron? And was the first pentahedron designed by an Egyptian,
or did Egypt look at mother nature for the pyramidal shape? Because both the
pentahedron and the double pentahedron, the octahedron, exist in nature: as
Lodestone is found in most parts of the world, usually in the form of magnetite
(Fe3O4). It is the only natural magnet on earth:
[ Magnetite ]
Either way, designed by man, or copied from the shape of magnetite, the
pyramid represents the microcosmic Ben-ben Stone, also known as the Grailstone
or Philosopher's Stone: the agent to the alchemical fire of kundalini in the
human body. Hence pyramid, meaning: 'fire in the middle,' or 'fire in there.'
Now, the Paris 4 say that that stone is 'pointy.' And this could then imply a
penta-, or octahedron. This possibility is all the more gripping, since
magnetite is also found in the human brain and the Stone of
Transmutation conceivably produced of that brain. 'First the head is
decapitated, then the Stone is produced.'[The Paris 4] (The ancient alchemists
of Greece even called that stone the lithos egkefalos, meaning:
brain-stone / Jung, MC, pars 626.)
John Raven, commenting on the Forbidden Letters, also conjectured that it's 'a
possibility that the Stone is produced of the old microcosmic head And that the
head placed back after the Kundalini-fire is again that Stone. This would mean
that there are as many Grails as there are human heads.'[Raven]
Animals too possess biogenic magnetite and it is believed that this helps them
to detect the earth's magnetic field. In the human body, to be complete,
magnetite is found in
- a) the cerebral cortex,
- b) the cerebellum, and
- c) in meninges (membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord).
In other words: in the Tree of Life.
Part 2 - On the Alchemical Embryo of Immortality
In his 1962 book Patanjali and Yoga Mircea Eliade tells us
that, according to Chinese alchemy, 'the tan-t'ien, the 'fields of cinnabar,'
are to be found in the most secret recesses of the brain
and belly; here it is that the
embryo of immortality is alchemically prepared.' [Eliade, 1962:111] This is
strange, because only parts of the Tree of Life and it's cakra's are located in
the brain and belly. The root-, heart-, and throat-cakra for instance are not.
So what is preparing that embryo of
immortality that brain and belly are involved? Do the brain and belly have
something in common for instance? The answer is yes: braincells. Because it was
discovered 'that both our gut and our brain
originate early in embryogenesis from the same clump of tissue which divides
during fetal development. While one section turns into the central nervous
system, another piece migrates to become the enteric nervous system. Later the
two nervous systems connect via a cable called the vagus nerve -- the longest of
all the cranial nerves whose name is derived from Latin, meaning
"wandering." The vagus nerve meanders from the brain stem through the neck and
finally ends up in the abdomen.There's the brain-gut
The gut's brain, or second brain, known as the enteric nervous system (ENS), 'is
located in sheaths of tissue lining the esophagus, stomach, small intestine and
Dr. Michael Gershon, a professor of anatomy and cell biology at
Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City, dubs 'the entire
gastrointestinal system the body's second nervous system. "The brain is not the
only place in the body that's full of neurotransmitters," says Dr. Gershon. "A
hundred million neurotransmitters line the length of the gut, approximately the
same number that is found in the brain." - '[Ibid.]
If we then 'add the nerve cells of the esophagus, stomach and large intestine,
there are more nerve cells in the gut than there are in the entire remainder of
the peripheral nervous system. Nearly every chemical that controls the brain in
the head has been identified in the gut, including hormones and
This all could mean that the ancient alchemists already new about the gut-brain.
Just like they new about biophotons, before these photons were 'discovered' by
scientists in 1938. From the Pedro Caz-article on the Forbidden Letters at World
[ Biophoton-image (left) of the human hand ]
'That cells emitted light was first suggested in 1938 by the Russian
biologist Alexander Gurwitsj. 'Every living system emits, absorbs, and stores
light, (...) and every living cell emits at least 100.000 light particles per
second.'[Boswinkel] Untill today though 'nobody knows how biophotons are being
produced. A thing that seems certain is that they are messengers or bosons. They
carry information.'[Boswinkel]'[Richard Morley at
'The "refracted rays of the Divine in the world and in created things (Caussin)"
correspond to the "certain luminosity" which the
alchemists said was inherent in the natural world.'[Jung, MC, par.
