I never could have done what I have done without the habit to concentrate myself on one subject at a time.- Charles Dickens
Alchemy is a comprehensive and continuous process.
We are profoundly lucky to be able to focus on a certain task one step at a time, but it takes a long way around. This means that we are climbing the Philosophers' Ladder one step at a time. It requires lots of patience.
Because summoning the archetypical and primordial force is not only a very exciting challenge, but also a very long road trip.
But it is worth it to spend our entire life working to invest in a raised and expanded collective consciousness. It is something related to developing human potentialities by activating our psychic abilities.
In other words, it is about significant movements in human evolution.
For instance, a telepathic communication through our collective consciousness is one of the exciting and evolutionary, but primordial technology to be upgraded.
That’s also one of the reason why higher mind-brain development brings a significant change in the social and cultural attitudes because of cognition and perception as playing a complex role of receiver and transmitter in mental transmutation.
In any case, it takes plenty of time and lots of patience, as mentioned by Fulcanelli.
