Chapter Five: On the Transformation of the Primordial Matter

He who would achieve this must learn through the grace of God how to transform  primordial matter into light and thus bring perfection to nature.

This matter is found in all things. It is familiar to all and despised by many. Next to the human soul, it is the most beautiful and most precious treasure one can possess.

This transformation is accomplished only by fire. For he that would achieve it must fix the Sun in Heaven in such a way that its light shines without ceasing.

When the two dragons are set one upon another, the male and female are released. The primordial matter must then undergo death by fire. From this fire the soul of matter is preserved and condensed into liquid and brought into the body of the resurrection. This child-like body must be nourished until it whitens. Thus is the first perfection accomplished.
