Death and Rebirth through the Kingdoms of Nature
 

For René Schwaller de Lubicz, everything that exists—the phenomenal world as a whole—was seen precisely as a reaction to a metaphysical action. ‘Life’ for Schwaller was ‘the faculty of reacting’, and this included the mineral and metallic kingdoms, as well as biological life proper. ‘The Universe is nothing but consciousness’, he remarks, ‘and through its appearances presents nothing but an evolution of consciousness, from its origin to its end, the end being a return to its cause’.

This seminar explores the unity of the alchemical process through the kingdoms of nature, and how death, rebirth, and evolution trace the contours of a fundamentally alchemical reality. To do this we focus on the major themes of Schwaller de Lubicz’s metallurgical alchemy and his work with Fulcanelli on stained glass, before turning to his theories on biological transformation and the phenomenon of the fixed alchemical salt. Finally, we examine the spiritual alpha and omega of this evolutionary process through meditation on the “spherical spiral”. Over all, we attempt to show how mineral, biological, and spiritual alchemies all express the arc by which matter departs from and returns to its ever-present origin.
