I made a spring playlist. I hope that you like ear massages.
This is the hand of the philosophers with their seven secret signs to which the ancient sages were bound.
- The Thumb: Just as the thumb powerfully closes the hand, so does saltpetre do in art (alchemy).
- The Index Finger: Next to saltpetre, vitriol is the strongest salt, it penetrates all metals.
- The Middle Finger: Sal ammoniac shines through all metals.
- The Ring or Gold finger: Alum gleams through the metals. It has a wonderful nature and the most subtle Spiritus.
- The Ear Finger: Common salt is the key to art.
- The Palm: The fish is Mercury, the fire Sulphur.
This blog has only been active for a little less than a month, and it’s already reached over 1000 followers! That’s crazy! Thank you all so much! To celebrate, I’ve started a little open network for people who love and post all kinds of lo-fi goodness. There won’t be any shitty promos or ugly captions or anything, this is just a network in the simplest of terms. Like a webring. You can check it out and apply at http://vhsnetwork.tumblr.com/.
