Since more than 2000 years Alchemists all over the world have spent all their time, effort and mostly themselves to the great Goddess of Alchemia. She demanded from them a lot, but gave more in return to those who had the courage and the talent to become one of her elected sons.
In their search to wisdom, spiritualization and the eternal life, the Alchemists stepped across the borders of all conventions, natural sciences, religion and reason. Although they never may have changed the base metals into silver or gold and they never acquired immortality, human chemistry saw its light in their laboratory. And when Surrealism was borrowed from their way of life and world of arts, the main goal of the Alchemists has always been to shine on that, to what all people may searching for, the Self of the Human Spirit. As Carl Young said: "Heaven has become an empty space to mankind".

May the heavens of the Alchemists be the opposite to that. Through the true glass of alchemy, far across the heavens, strengthened with golden dreams of silver elements, the Alchemists, while the Self already gone to earth thru the books of minerals, will help you to explore your very own imagination.

(René van der Wouden)
