Page 37: “There is a big difference between the real fire and potential fire-throwing flames and lights. the real fire heats, the potential fire cools down and ceases after throwing flame. There is also a fire illuminating and heating without being consumed: in fact, we can observe that the fire in the atmosphere makes a long way and produces flames which augment in power and extension.
It would be of some interest to know if the atoms of fire penetrate the gold vitrified and if they mix with the other bodies to augment their weights and volumes. Nevertheless in this case it would be necessary to distinguish between atoms of gold and fire. Sun does not seem to emit the real fire-throwing flames even if it burns corpuscules and other matter of this kind”.
Let’s suppose that Stuart Chevalier gives the name potential fire to our common fire and real fire to cover an extensive area from exothermic reactions to our alchemical Secret Fire since she appears not to draw lines in between. Pay attention to the real fire capability to be absorbed by the glass. We know that our perfect sulfur can actually penetrates it, even if gold vitrified is something different from our common glass. Some contemporary alchemists do believe that Secret Fire can actually reside in atomic electronic clouds.
Page 38: “Nobody ignores that lead augments its weight during cupell operation (7), how does it come, if fire atoms don’t concentrate to fix in a body? The texture variations we can observe during different digestions prove nothing. In fact, they largely rely on either matter or on fire regimens. Depending on balneum mariae, on cinders, on sands, on fire, under the sun, or horse’s dung. All those variations are caused by the atoms engaged with corpuscules during digestion. It seems that all these corpuscules of fire accompanying the elements be like fumes since they are of so subtle to penetrate glass. This truth is demonstrated by the “lover” whose corpuscules penetrate the iron ones even if closed inside a vessel and a glass”.
Be aware that the serpent symbol was taken by ancients to represent our Mercurius ( a Sulphur yet unripe). Since both Mercurius and serpents use to move as a flux. The “lover” actually is the Mercurius set apart and in its dissolving metal function. Of course, a lover then will need a mate (8).
