Several years ago I met an alchemist in the forest.
On today’s QSO I mentioned my use of an electron microscope and how fascinating it is that there is much to explore on the head of a pin as there is in there is in the sky at night. Alchemists call this ‘as above, so below’. Modern science is often late to the table to realise what the ancients knew but perhaps didn’t understand.
When I met him we exlored several concepts, the one that stuck with me was the difference between spirit and soul. I always thought they were the same thing! Another day I’ll add that story!
His name is Guy Olgivy and I’m actually reading a book of his at the moment about wizards!
