It's better to take the balance of power between traditional methods and modern findings. We are more likely to forget that the cosmic puzzle is not only organic, but it's also interdimensional.
Tradition says that there are 3 principles. Does that really make sense?
There is no dogmatic "true or false" questions and contexts here. It always depends on the context. It's not necessary to struggle with the old things. It's also better to take advantage of them. It's the best way to make the most of them with gratitude. It just needs to be considered.
Sulphur = Soul, Mercury = Spirit, Salt = Body
I think that now is the time to upgrade the 3 philosophical principles in alchemy.
In order to extract the power of the sun from congealed materials, so many adepts, scientists and technologists might have worked so hard through human history. However, in my understanding, the power of the sun is not included in the principles. It's more likely to work with them.
I think that's why the method focuses on purification and intergration.
For instance, the 23rd power of the sun enhances other ability in the material world. However, it's not included in the principles. It's more likely to work with the principles.
For another instance, the soul might not be made up of singular object instance. It seems to be consciously created as a fractal architecture. If the pineal gland is so-called "seat of the soul", the soul itself has to have and consists of plural components. Here is my idea.
Sulphur = Soulful Intention, Mercury = Spiritual Environment, Salt = Catalytic Interface
In transition phase, it might be better to focus on the feature and characteristics of water. This means the role of mercury. The reason of focusing on water is because modern science has and provides a more insightful theory of space. Energy, environment and space are closely related to each other.
