Re: Immortals walk amongst us.
I have realized that deep down all cells have the capacity to be immortal. We just suppress that potential with dark thoughts and a belief that we have to die.

If we collect enough voltage in the cells and energy centers we could slow down the aging process.

If we purify the prostate, pineal, pituitary and other glands, we may secrete enough of the internal elixirs to rejuvenate ourselves.

Life is just a dream, anyway...

It is said that there must be a balance in these two forces. Without the Feminine, the Masculine is apt to act without restraint, order, or reason, resulting in chaos. The Feminine alone, on the other hand, is apt to constantly reflect and fail to actually do anything, resulting in stagnation. With both the Masculine and Feminine working in conjunction, there is thoughtful action that breeds success, which points out that both the Feminine and the Masculine fulfill each other.

Alchemylab is a cool site:

[link to www.alchemylab.com (secure)]

Everyone has to figure out a lot of it themselves.

Regarding masculine and feminine, I've felt both those forces at work in my body, Masculine/electric - Magnetic/feminine. I guess one aspect of alchemy is purifying both of those forces so their cleansing potential is enhanced, and the body's garbage collection can be improved many times over.

*

I'm sure a philosophers stone might actually exist, but I wonder if this egg shaped stone could be the prostate or the lower dantien. Or even the heart:

"He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, 'From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'"

Maybe the stories about making the philosophers stone are metaphors for internal alchemy. Do the various colors of the stones refer to the energy centers?

Goodnight all...

Re: Immortals walk amongst us.
Plot of Hypnerotomachia Poliphili. Seems similar to the Arwen and Aragorn love story, which in itself may be instructions for internal alchemy.

2 nymphs, three gates, 5 processions? Are there not parallels in the Bible and other holy books?


The book begins with Poliphilo, who is spending a restless dream filled night because his beloved, Polia, has shunned him. Poliphilo is transported into a wild forest, where he becomes lost, encounters dragons, wolves and maidens and a large variety of architectural forms. He escapes, and falls asleep once more.

He then awakens in a second dream, a dream within the first. He is taken by nymphs to meet their queen, and there he is asked to declare his love for Polia, which he does. He is then directed by two nymphs to three gates. He chooses the third, and there he discovers his beloved. They are taken by some more nymphs to a temple to be engaged. Along the way they come across five triumphal processions celebrating their union. They are then taken to the island of Cythera by barge, on which Cupid is the boatswain. On Cythera, they see another triumphal procession celebrating their union. The narrative is interrupted, and assumed by a second voice, as Polia describes Poliphilo's erotomania from her own point of view.

Polia kisses Poliphilo back to life

Poliphilo then resumes his narrative (from one-fifth of the way through the book). Polia rejects Poliphilo, but Cupid appears to her in a vision and compels her to return and kiss Poliphilo, who has fallen into a deathlike swoon at her feet. Her kiss revives him. Venus blesses their love, and Poliphilo and Polia are united at last. As Poliphilo is about to take Polia into his arms, Polia vanishes into thin air and Poliphilo wakes up.

Beautiful.

Also reminiscent of Lot in Gensis and the Greek myth of Orpheus.

What truths can we derive from this recurring narrative. Love is a dream? It is better to live in the dream than the reality? What is the transformation? Red pill, blue pill?

Re: Immortals walk amongst us.
"The Highlander walks among us."

A nice fiction. Far from truth, but there is more I can tell if this kind of subject peaks your interest.


-Immortal Wars-


All immortals go through a mental breaking point. Being immortal means losing your loves, friends, and seeing everyone you are close to pass away. With more time comes more trajedy. It is the way of life. Having eternal(*) natural life puts the immortal outside of the mortal ways, and so at one point or another the immortal must face this and come to terms with it. Many immortals are dark in character, shady, distant, and hardened due to this.


Immortals who cannot mentally survive their breaking point either choose death or choose madness. Something I mentioned earlier is that some immortals look upon themselves as gods. This state of mind combined with the madness and not accepting their life is poison, deadly. Other immortals become their equals and mortals become a very lesser thing. The war between immortals in the past has often been sparked by these immortals who look upon themselves and fellow immortals as gods. They may choose to seek, join, and fight others.

Sometimes madness is a cruel form of brilliance, and so they gain support from mortals with incredible success. Some battles in history could be creditted to such immortals. A clash between two immortals driven mad could be history worthy indeed.

It could sound epic, but in the end I suppose I am simply telling you about the mental state an immortal might have. Mad or not, most immortals are heavily afflicted. It's a question as to whether their minds adapt or not.

What age does an immortal person look?
 Quoting: Eilonwy


Most look the age at which they 'discovered' immortality. As others said, we are not necessarily talking 100% immortals, just people who have drastically slowed down aging. There are actually many many types and colors of immortals... I heard from reliable sources of people who look 60 when they are 300. I met one guy who looked 30... but I knew he was much older. My teacher refused to tell me how old he was. lol.

Then there are those who can incarnate at will, and disincarnate again whenever they feel like it. But there are rules governing how, why or when they interact with people. Contact is rare. At least for me, it is right now...
 Quoting: Daozen


This is true

I was 25 when I “realised” that I am immortal

I stopped aging then

I am now 38

I have realized that deep down all cells have the capacity to be immortal. We just suppress that potential with dark thoughts and a belief that we have to die.

If we collect enough voltage in the cells and energy centers we could slow down the aging process.

If we purify the prostate, pineal, pituitary and other glands, we may secrete enough of the internal elixirs to rejuvenate ourselves.

Life is just a dream, anyway...

Is a big part of anti-aging about releasing the internal fire and letting it cleanse us internally?

What about releasing high frequency energy by continually meditating on/refining the navel energy center?

I know it's hard to put the teachings into words... but it would be cool if someone gave me some specific pointers. Or are you all under secrecy oaths? Ha!

This is a cool "fictional" convdrsation with St Germaine, He goes over the differet types of Immortal. He claims he doesn't even need herbs. I cued it at the right place:

Re: Immortals walk amongst us.
but they can die a physical death. Some may be superior in healing and immune system. Generally the older they are the better their healing is because they have had nothing but time to adapt to disease.

This does not apply to the secluded. The secluded may be weaker, driven to seclusion either to wait out for different times, or sickness of life without the will to end it.

Both active and secluded are strong in the mind. They know mental dicipline. Many immortal have died, just not of old age. The longer an immortal, lives the larger the probability for survival becomes.

Some immortals view human society and life like a game of chess. They are the watchers, they move the pieces from the outside. Others have taken up the sword, involving themselves, they feel as though they are gods.

Capturing an immortal, finding a dead immortal, these are not possible today. No proof can be given. A dead immortal's brain cannot be tested for the wealth of knowledge and pure skill for all things. Their blood may prove to be strong with many antibodies and an incredible immune system that an athlete may have, but this would no be a remarkable, stunning, or unique find. Even with no identity, an immortal would just be another John Doe in the books. This is why there is no "proof" of immortals since times when people were open to believe such things.

The sensative can sometimes notice an immortal. I do not know the answer to this, I do not know why. But to the sensative, they may take notice to the one out of a croud. Is it behavior communication, the way they move.. or perhaps mental development over time. I believe it to be body language.

Immortals do not have super powers and mind control abilities. Many are remarkable. Time has given them the chance to hone their reaction times and not only learn.. but perfect techniques in various skills. Physically there is a different between knowing your body for 30 years and knowing it for 300. With more time you may move different, react faster, know the very best way to react to many situations. The mental dicipline only enhances their abilities, and together their physical and mental turn into heavily increased survival. Some could be viewed as gods, being mystical, or having powers simply because of their perfected movement and thinking.


Now you know more about the immortals.
 Quoting: Syrec


There are only four in recorded history. All men.
One was a disciple of Christ.
The other three are those we would call Native American
in these days. Unknowns. (Or maybe one is actually Keaneu Reeve).
