Hyleal, Pri-material, Catholic, or Universal Natural Chaos: Excerpts from the Companion Volume to Am (Used)
by Khunrath, Heinrich
Publisher: Salamander and Sons
Book ID: 9780987520647, 0987520644
Hyleal, Pri-material, Catholic, or Universal Natural Chaos: Excerpts from the Companion Volume to Amphitheatre of Eternal Wisdom.
Softcover. 8vo. 38pp. Stapled, Illustrated card covers. Illustrated in b&w. Edtion limited to 300 hand numbered copies. From the "Unearthed Arcana" series. Translated into English for the first time by Russell Yoder, Hyleal, Pri-material, Catholic, or Universal Natural Chaos is initially concerned with Magnesia (the "Magnet of the Lord" and "universal raw Stone of the Wise that is to be found in Nature"), the Green Lion of Nature (the "fiery spark or ray of the World's Soul, or Light of Nature" that is "the naturally, conceivably catholic All") and Our Chaos or Hyle ("the World's First Water ... [the] Fountain [from which] all material things have their first origin" which is the "Fundament or Foundation, the Basis of the World that God Himself put in place ... [which] the edifice of the entire earth is set upon …").
Embodying a kind of Christianised natural magic influenced as much by kabbalah, natural philosophy and the works of Paracelsus as by Lutheran pietism and devotion, the Divinely inspired and particular revelations of Hyleal, Pri-material, Catholic, or Universal Natural Chaos extend to include heavenly influences and the timing of the work, Azoth or Living Mercury ("not quicksilver, nor something taken out of or from him, but Mercurius - that which the Philosophers speak of!"), Salt of Magnesia ("often called Sal Petra or Sal Peter, Sal Alkali, Sal Gemma or the Noble Rock-salt ... from the radical Humidity of the whole World"), and the artful and natural elevation of plants, animals and minerals "to the highest Natural Perfection" towards "true Regeneration and more than perfect Multiplication of Metals [and] an exceedingly powerful Universal Medicine ...". Includes a brief but important tract in verse 'from F.R.C.' on the subject of Our Chaos - Hyle - published as part of The Golden Rose (1704), almost 100 years after the publication of Khunrath's Amphitheatrum, and exactly 90 years after the appearance of the Rosicrucian manifesto Fama Fraternitatis R.C. (1614).

The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company
After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.
The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press
Limited to 800 copies
The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
