"Understand, ye sons of the wise,

what this exceeding precious stone proclaims . . .

And my light conquers every light,

and my virtues are more excellent than all virtues . . .

I beget the light, but the darkness too is of my nature . . ."

-- Hermes the Thrice Great

madde ižareti Crucible   "The concept of Imaginatio is the most important key to understanding the alchemical Opus. We have to conceive of these imaginal processes not as the immaterial phantoms that we readily take fantasy pictures to be, but as something corporeal, a subtle body. The Imaginatio, or the act of imagining, was a physical activity that could be fitted into the cycle of material changes, that brought these about and was brought about by them in turn. The alchemist related himself not only to the unconscious but directly to the very substance that he hoped to transform through the power of imagination."   - Carl Jung
