What can you learn from alchemy today?
Nothing. Alchemy was abandoned because it didn't work. Some of the things that did work became chemistry. No one successfully turned lead into gold. Nor did anyone successfully create the philosopher's stone. Alchemy was basically chemistry with a lot of magic thrown into it. The alchemists were sorcerer want to be's. They attempted to conjure spirits, and use spells on chemicals that they believed contained magical properties, all in a vain attempt to convert base metals into something of greater value. Even Isaac Newton, probably the greatest scientific mind of the last 500 years, accomplished nothing in alchemy, even though he experimented with it for decades.

Answer . Because to do anything in the future, we have to look to the past. History doesn't just rhyme, but repeats, they say, and that's really true. We're still walking on "untrodden ground", and we have to look at the footprints that are already there to tell us what to do. Since we can't just… go back in time and say, "Hey...is such-and-such law constitutional?" or ask them what to do, we study them and the founding of the nation to make an educated guess (hence the purpose of the judicial branch). Besides, their spots in the history books are well deserved. (MORE)
Alchemy was a quasi-science that centered on the inherent powers of the four elements: fire, water, earth, and air. The idea was that varying combinations of these 4 basic common materials would provide one the makings of any element in existence. Alchemy was first utilized in Khem, the ancient name… for Egypt (Al-Kimiya), and although they are far removed in time and sophistication, and at the time didn't know it, practitioners provided the foundation for modern chemistry. Finally, chemistry replaced it completely, over a relatively brief time span, thanks to the intellectual tsunami that was the Renaissance . Of the more legendary aspects of Alchemy, the most common belief is that by mixing the proper materials in the right proportions and performing certain secret rituals, lead or any other metal could be turned into gold. Another prominent belief was that, in like manner the Philosopher's Stone, a mythical rock thought to possess the capacity to prolong the owner's lifespan, could be produced. At their developmental peak, alchemists were practicing a primitive form of chemistry. Like modern chemists, they were isolating and identifying elements and compounds, and learning and documenting how they interacted with each other. As scientific understanding grew it was realized that there was nothing magical or supernatural about the processes, but rather that they were natural chemical reactions which followed predictable natural laws. Hence, few people in modern times believe that lead can be turned into gold or that there is a mystical Philosophers Stone which can grant the holder great knowledge and power. One of the famous sayings of Alchemy is, Aurum Nostrum Non Vulgi (Our gold is not that of the common man); this refers to the idea that, at least for many Alchemists, it was more a spiritual search than a scientific one (although alchemists did make significant contributions to chemical knowledge). Alchemy reached its peak in Europe at a time when any religious dissent could get you into trouble with religious authorities. Particularly vulnerable, were those who felt that their spiritual development was their own personal business. Carl Jung, using alchemy as an analogy, identified it with his process of Individuation, and there are certainly similarities. Alchemy is a tradition whose practitioners believe that is is the precursor to very profound powers. (MORE)
Answer . In order to learn about the wholesale slaughter of innocent people - Jews, gypsies, etc., etc. - with the vain hope that it will prevent such abominations happening again. The holocaust might seem to be a along time ago to you (I am assuming that you are a young person) but there are m…any survivors of that living hell and for it to be forgotten or considered unimportant by those who follow would be an appalling insult.. David Ben-Gurion (among others) said that you should forgive but never forget, for if you forget, it will happen again.. There are many other examples of genocide and, sadly, genocide is still happening today in many countries. (MORE)
Alchemy is an ancient term which included all manner of things we would consider strange today. However the most important sciences to develop from alchemy was chemistry. So if you are doing chemistry you are doing alchemy. Alchemy was abandoned because it didn't work. Some of the things that did wo…rk became chemistry. No one successfully turned lead into gold. Nor did anyone successfully create the philosopher's stone. Alchemy was basically chemistry with a lot of magic thrown into it. The alchemists were sorcerer want to be's. They attempted to conjure spirits, and use spells on chemicals that they believed contained magical properties, all in a vain attempt to convert base metals into something of greater value. Even Isaac Newton, probably the greatest scientific mind of the last 500 years, accomplished nothing in alchemy, even though he experimented with it for decades. It is quiet a task! In fact impossible. Alchemy is the study and philosophy of changing other metals into gold. Realistically this is impossible, however theoretically could be possible. Remember any atom is made of sub atomic particles and they each have a number assigned to them on the periodic table to count the number of protons in that given element. Gold is number 79 and has a weight of 197 amu making it have 118 neutrons. In order for another metal element to form gold it would have to gain all of those in the exact same way gold has them configured. This task is currently impossible. Thus, you cannot perform alchemy.

If you mean "was there a proto-science called alchemy, that later developed into the science of chemistry" ... then yes. If you mean "did people studying alchemy make some valid discoveries that improved our understanding of the physical world" ... also yes. If you mean "do things like universal s…olvents and the philosopher's stone that lets you turn lead into gold exist" ... definitely not. (MORE)
You will see that physical alchemy is indeed real, and the famous chemists like Newton were actually very familiar with alchemy.

Alchemy has been popular for more than 2,500 years though it's use has declined since the invention of modern chemistry during the 18th century.
Well... if you know how to do it, I guess not, but otherwise, I would guess it would be dangerous in the hands of someone who had just finished watching one episode of Fullmetal Alchemist. But you could try! Just be very, very careful!
One of the most simple, safe, and easy-to-do demonstrations of real alchemy is an experament with freezing water molecules. To do this, different bottles of water are given different names, and are subject to having those words written on or arround the container. The words or symbols must have eit…her a positive or negative afilliation such as words like love, hate, peace, war, heaven, hell, pure, tainted, beautifull, hideous, joy, sadness, etc. Samples of the different waters are then frozen and put under a microscope. When viewed, the tiny patterns seen in the positivly affilliated water are semetrical, introcate, consistant in pattern shape, and overall good looking. The Negitivly affiliated ice patterns, will appear inconsistant, asemetrical, random, and generaly bad looking. This phenomenon is caused by the demonstrator's feelings towards these different bottles with words. Seeing something positive and comforting or negative and desturbing on the bottle gives the water alchemical properties that corespond to how they make the viewer feel. These alchemical changes become evident when the water is frozen and the molecules connect to each other randomly. Alchemical properties change the quantum probability of the molecule's alignment and make the outcome of the crystal look either good or bad based on the properties given to it. (MORE)

Buddhists and many other religious and philosophical types have done a lot of thinking about the relation of mankind to the rest of the universe. The study of these writings provides a step up for people seeking understanding of the "Big Questions". People of all types study Buddhism. If they like w…hat they see and use it, they are technically Buddhiists Joining Buddhism is not to be confused with shaving one's head and donning saffron robes in a lamasery. It is an a incorporation of the four noble truths and the remedies for desire into your life. The Dalai Lama advises people interested in Buddhism to examine it, take the parts that are useful and leave the rest. Nothing in Buddhist belief prevents a person from dual citizenship with other religions. Buddhism encourages kindness, compassion, moderation and sobriety. It discourages greed, egoism, cruelty, and laziness. All of the above are laid out with the approach that a person can take control of his own life and make it better. There are many types of Buddhist: . Some people are born into it. . Some people dismiss the idea of a supreme supernatural being (God(s)) and all the trappings of religion such as souls and eternal life. They may be attracted to Buddhism as a guideline for proper response to problems and life issues, without accepting the life after death or reincarnation considerations. . Some people accept the supernatural aspects of Buddhism and study Buddhism as a guideline for for proper response to life issues. . Some people maintain their original religion but study and adopt Buddhist philosophical responses to life issues, an adjunct to their religions teachings. (MORE)

The earliest forms of alchemy may have been around for well over 2,500 years and is still practiced today whether in the classical term alchemy or in the fields it gave birth to or influenced which include: chemistry, medicine, philosophical and/or spiritual discipline, metallurgy, physics, astrolog…y, semiotics, mysticism, spiritualism, and art. It's basic form has been practiced in Europe, Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, Persia, India, Japan, Korea, China, Classical Greece and Rome, and in the Muslim civilizations while in the varying forms it either gave birth to or influenced it can be assumed it is practiced in even small parts of every modern country, though this is just a rough estimate.

The importance of following proper procedure is what today's leaders can learn from Oedipus' example in " Oedipus Rex " by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, Oedipus' tragedy derives in part from not following proper procedure. For example, he gets a disturbing prophecy that affect…s him and his family and runs away instead of sharing. He kills five people on the way to Thebes, where he marries a widowed queen. He neglects proper procedure by not carrying out cleansing rituals for his crimes and the death of his wife's first husband. The inattention to proper procedure ultimately trips Oedipus up because the gods become angry and send a pestilence to Thebes. Oedipus' example underscores the importance of doing what it supposed to be done when it needs to be done. (MORE)

Of course it is. Whether you can get it to work, and exactly what 'work' means, is another matter. It is obvious that, unless one has a clear idea of the objective, and at least some scientific application of methodology (and, even for many of the greatest Alchemists, this required the dedicated wor…k of a lifetime), one could 'do Alchemy' until the cows came home without the slightest prospect of success. Perhaps you just want a pile of gold? Remember that the Alchemists say, 'Aurum Nostrum Non Vulgi' - 'Our gold is not that of the common man'. Without wishing to cause offence (although I probably will, and for that I apologise), I feel that the way you have phrased the question suggests you might have more success in another field. (MORE)
One Opinion: Nothing. The two times couldn't be more opposite. The 1000 years that was the middle ages had women as second class citizens and it is only in recent history that women have been able to gain civil rights, vote, own land, get an education, and own businesses. This has not be accompli…shed until modern history. Different Opinion: I am not so sure women of today have learned nothing from medieval women, but if they have not then they really should. Women in the Middle Ages had rights. The observation that they could not vote is not very useful, because in nearly all cases men had no vote either. But they could own land, they could get educations as easily as men, and they did own businesses. There are several reasons modern women should understand these things. One is that there are a large number of role models among historic medieval women. These include not only women who succeeded against all odds, but women who were simply great because they achieved great things worthy of record. Another is that the rights of women declined during the Late Middle Ages and Renaissance; a fact that we should always keep in mind because it is important to know it can happen.
