There’s something about the alchemical process of coagulation, the end of the transformation cycle, which relates to death as much as rebirth. Whereas there is a lot of spirit involved in the other steps, coagulation is a loss of spirit, an end to the transformation. Change stops.
The plant stones produced through alchemical lab processes often, once coagulation is complete, get consumed and digested. They get put into the process again, but in a completely different way.
When we ultimately finish our own transformation, are we not then also consumed by nature, digested by the world and universe around us, to be put into a different version of the process?
So, what kind of stones are we making of ourselves? What transformative properties will we produce in that next cycle?
