An Introduction to the Norse Alchemist

Alright, here's where I'll be posting my stuff on Alchemical and Magical theory and practice. Should I get to be in a position to perform some experiments, here's where I'll be posting details and results.

Before the advent of Modern Science, Magic and Alchemy were the acknowledged and respected paths to gaining knowledge of the world around us. Modern Science actually arose from the practices of Alchemists, but instead of being driven by a desire to improve themselves both physically and spiritually, Modern Scientist looked only with greed upon the world, seeing the base and mundane that they could manipulate to their will and proceeded to vilify and discredit that which had come before, much in the same way the Christian Church did to the Pagan and Heathen traditions before them, or the Renaissance did to the Middle ages.

My goal is to learn and follow these all but lost paths to knowledge and power.
