Before the 19th Century, alchemy was widely believed to be ‘magic’ and ‘science’.
Later, when 19th-century scientists began to understand the nature of metals and the periodic table, alchemy was supposedly disproved.
At least, this is what Google would tell us. But Google does not know who, what and where the new Alchemists are because Google does not have a brain. (definitely not a thinker).
Google is the reason why this short message is here. To put Google straight. ( simply because somebody needs to)
Consider this. If you have a household problem, the floor in your home is Scraggly, Scruffy, worn, untidy. The paint on your walls is grubby and worn. Your kitchen looks and feels like something from a disaster zone. You cannot find your shirt because the wardrobe in the bedroom is a hopeless mess, small, basically a waste of space,
Getting the picture?
Consider; your need is to transform your home into something of beauty, value, and Optimised. (Optimised is a word used a lot these days.) I am unsure if this word was used greatly in the 18th Century.
What you need is the equivalent of an 18th-century Alchemist. You do not require an Alchemist to turn lead into gold. But you will require one to turn a Drab, boring, worn out, dated and Dull home into an alive, vibrant and exciting place. (This is the same thing that alchemists did or attempted to do )
Your real need is for A MODERN ALCHEMIST.
A person that specialised someone with a Magic touch, an ‘INTERIOR ALCHEMIST. Sometimes mistakenly call an Interior decorator, or Interior Designer (whatever)
You hurriedly do a google search for ‘Interior Alchemist’. Google has NOTHING – ZILCH – Google cannot help; Google doesn’t have a clue.
Just for interest’s sake.
Some people could almost describe Alchemy as a philosophy. You know the type. They hold a small stone in their hand and state arrogantly ” If I hold a small stone in my hand, and I feel it as being precious. Then it becomes Precious.”
We all recognise a Wanker when we come across one.
When a true alchemist changes something, it is not just the Alchemist or the philosopher that can see or feel it.
Visitors and onlookers say “WOW” Simply because it is real; it can be seen and touched If you can feel, see and touch something. IT IS REAL.
I write this message simply because recently, I came across an elderly woman who inherited an old house.
When I talked to her, she said, “When I first went there; the house looked and felt like a pile of junk. That was until An Interior Alchemist turned it into the most precious place”.
“An INTERIOR ALCHEMIST?” I asked with great curiosity.
I quietly Pointed out that according to Google, the word Alchemy originated in the Greek phrase khemeia, meaning “The art of transmuting metals”.
“Alchemists were considered early chemists because they attempted to transform base metals into gold.”
“YES!” she answered, nodding her head. With the biggest smile.
