Chemistry. The science of the initiated and the philosophers
In ancient times, science was closely linked to philosophical research for the truth and to initiation in the deeper mysteries of nature. Among modern scientific branches, chemistry is the one that combines experimental techniques with esoteric values. The symbols that it uses must be decrypted by the initiated in order to reveal their full meaning, which unifies ancient Pythagorean doctrines with modern cosmology and genetic engineering in a harmonious whole. Thus, science is no more a materialistic approach of natural phenomena, but a spiritual endeavor aiming towards a complete understanding of the fundamental cosmic laws.
