MSA (Spagyric-Alchemical Macerate of Solanimus)
Here we will not only talk about spagyria or green alchemy, but also some real alchemy, this when working with insoluble or fixed salts in the plant. Spagyric-Alchemical Macerate of Solanimus (MSA) is obtained from fresh buds, rootlets, young shoots, in short, from the meristematic tissue of the plant (young part of the plant). Harvest the plant and put it to macerate, in a circulator, in a hydro-glycerol-alcohol solution (distilled rainwater 33%, vegetable glycerol 33% and spagyric alcohol 33%) for a period of a philosophical lunar month, exposed to the “sun and moon,” if they are aerial parts from full moon to full moon, if they are rootlets from new moon to new moon. The ratio of plant dry residue to solvent is 1:5, while in a classical macerate it is 1:20. After that period has elapsed, everything is filtered and the plant remaining in the filter is pressed and the liquid, thus obtained, is filtered and added to the liquid obtained earlier.
At this point the residue of the pressed plant is taken and burned to ash. Now take the solution obtained earlier and put it in a wide-necked carboy and then pour in the ashes obtained by burning the plant itself. On top of this wide-necked carboy another wide-necked carboy is placed, upside down, so that the two mouths of the carboys coincide, and then, this joint is sealed with a lute. The luto is used to join the two mouths of the wide-necked carboys, it consists of a strip of paper that is soaked in a paste made of flour, water, egg white, lime and/or clay, then this strip is put around the joint that form the two mouths of the overlapping carboys (this luto was called “Wisdom Luto” by the Ancients). When the Spagyric-Alchemical Macerate of Solanimus is ripe, the lute will split and this will signal to us that the circulation is finished. This happens because the circulation makes the macerate thinner and therefore more volatile, which means that its evaporation point will lower and thus greater liquid, at the same temperature, will turn into vapor, but we all know that this transformation causes an increase in volume and this, consequently, an increase in pressure inside the jar, pressure that will precisely break the lute. This jar formed by these two carboys is called a “microcosm,” it is placed outdoors exposed to the sun and the moon and with the heat the solution that is in the lower part of the jar evaporates and begins to rise in the upper part (carboy upside down), this vapor sticks to the walls and is transformed, condensing, into small droplets which, as they slide down the glass of the upper carboy, fall back into the lower part of the jar, and then evaporate and rise again, and so on and on, which is why the inside of the jar is called the “microcosm,” because what in nature, the “macrocosm,” happens continuously (rain falling, evaporating and rising, condensing high in the sky and falling back, and so on and on) happens inside. This process is called circulation since precisely it is a perpetual rise and fall of matter.
When the lute splits it means the circulation time is over, the two carboys are separated, and the solution is filtered through a pure cellulose filter (this is where the Spagyric Macerate ends). In order to obtain the Spagyric-Alchemical Macerate of Solanimus, one must proceed by recovering the residue that is left in the filter and then calcining and leaching it three times (as in obtaining purified barrel tartar salt), and then the salts thus purified will be exposed to the full moon so that they go into deliquescence. Doing so will result in an oil that will have the Force of Nature in it; it will be very rich in Prana, thus highly energetic. One now takes this deliquescent salt and pours it into the solution (Spagyric Macerate) obtained earlier and circulates the whole thing for a lunar philosophical month, starting from the new moon if plant roots were used, or from the full moon if aerial parts (buds, shoots, seeds or young shoots) were used. You circulate the whole thing in a circulator and the Life Force of Nature will now be in the macerate, filter it, let it decant and decant the macerate into another vessel being careful not to shake the bottom, because the substance at the bottom are nothing but the insoluble salts of the plant and that they are superfluous. This preparation is a macerate that has in it the active ingredients of the plant, the trace elements of the plant, and the energy given by the Celestial Fire or Mercury, the subtlest. Therefore it is a macerate that will go very deep, as they say it will be very subtle and have a strong energy.
At this point you will dilute the macerate, which has now changed from Spagyric to Spagyric-Alchemical, at a ratio of one to ten, in other words you add nine parts of hydro-glycerol-alcohol solution for every part of concentrated Spagyric-Alchemical Macerate and then shake. Having done this, a Spagyric-Alchemical Macerate will have been obtained that will have a final extraction ratio of 1:50 (first 1:5 and then 1:10), thus a higher concentration of active ingredients contained in the plant part used and will additionally have a strong concentration of vital energy (Prana).
Unlike the Spagyric Macerate in the Spagyric-Alchemical Macerate are present: Philosophic Mercury (spagyric alcohol), Sulfur (active ingredients of the plant), Volatile Salt (trace elements of the plant), Fixed Salt (calcined and leached plant residue) and Prana (salts collected with the exposure of Fixed Salt).
