Alchemy originates at least 2,500 years ago and was practiced around the world especially in Ancient Egypt, Persia, India, Japan, Korea and China, in Classical Greece and Rome up to the 19th century.
In the history of science, alchemy refers to both an early form of the investigation of nature and an early philosophical discipline, both combining elements of chemistry, physics, medicine, astrology, mysticism, and art all coming together to serve one greater force.
Alchemy is an ancient path of transformation and the expansion of consciousness and the development of insight and intuition through images. Alchemy is overwhelmed with mysticism and mystery. It is made up of a system of eternal, dreamlike, mysterious symbols, which form part of the mystical, and mystery traditions of East and West In the West, it dates to ancient Egypt, where it was first developed as an early form of chemistry. Egyptians alchemists used their art to make perfumes and cosmetic jewelry.
Alchemy was the name given in Latin Europe in the 12th century to an aspect of thought that corresponds to astrology, which is apparently an older tradition. Both represent attempts to discover the relationship of man to the cosmos and to exploit that relationship to his benefit. The first of these objectives may be called scientific, the second technological.
During Renaissance times, alchemy spread through the Western world, and was further developed mostly by astrologers. Alchemy is a form of speculative thought that also tried to transform base metals such as lead or copper into silver or gold and to find a cure for disease and a way to extend life. In order to protect their secrets, alchemists recorded diaries filled with mysterious symbols instead of text. And the key to alchemy is in the interpretation of the alchemy symbols.
