The practice of alchemy has often been associated with the chemical process of turning base metals into gold. How-ever, Enochian Magick recognizes another important branch of alchemy-turning ignorance into wisdom, sickness into health, and mortality into longevity. It is symbolically called the Philosopher's Stone, the stone of the magician, and it works through a magical process of transmutation. It is not just a physical process but mental as well. The 'base metal' is the human body and mind, and the 'pure gold' is the body immunized against sickness and age with mind enlightened to the true nature of things.
Within and around the human body is an aura, a subtle Body of Light with several gradations. The lowest of these is called the etheric body. The etheric body consists of an electromagnetic field. Like any magnet, there is a North pole and a South pole. In the male body the North pole is in the region of the loins while the South pole is in the chest. In the female body the poles are reversed; the North pole is in the chest while the South pole is in the loins. The North pole is a region of egress. The South pole is a region of ingress. The North pole is active and outgoing. The South pole is passive and receptive. As with any magnet, like poles repel while opposite poles attract. The task of the magician is to consciously control this magnetic field and direct its magical forces throughout the physical body which is its expression in flesh. The "stone" is magical fire that radiates through the body and, in time, effects the transmutation. This magical fire (sometimes called psychic heat) is produced by means of combined meditational and breathing exercises that follow.
The magical fire that transmutes the physical body is known in Tantricisrn as Kundalini and in Tibet as Fohat. It is the natural force of the evolution of man that lies latent in the Body of Light at a point that corresponds to the base of the spine in the physical body. In time, this force will cause man to blossom and grow from the human being to a divine Son of the Sun. Enochian Magick, like Kundalini Yoga, teaches that this evolutionary development can be hastened or -^quickened' by appropriate meditational and magical techniques.
