Salt



A symbolic element in Alchemy.

"Salt is the substance of all things, and the fixed principle of all that exists. Salt works upon Sulfur and Mercury. Thus, Sulfur and Mercury make Salt volatile, just as they are. Salt thickens them and makes them fixed in return. When Salt is dissolved in an appropriate liquor, then it dissolves solid things and gives them consistency. Salt gives a form of perfection to sexual alchemy’s Child of Gold. Salt dissolves our metals to elaborate the Child of Gold of sexual alchemy with them. The volatile Salt prepares the larynx to speak the verb of Gold... Our Philosophical Earth, which is our human body, must be reduced to its seminal Salts to elaborate sexual alchemy’s Child of Gold." —Samael Aun Weor, Treatise of Sexual Alchemy

“Salt [in Alchemy] is the Spirit. Salt is contained within the sacred sperm and it is sublimated with transmutation... Salt is contained within the sexual secretions. However, this Salt needs to be sublimated. Therefore, when transmutation is performed, this Salt is also transmuted.” —Samael Aun Weor, From the lecture “Archeus”

"The Salt is divided into fixed Salt and volatile Salt... The fixed Salt serves as a base and a foundation." —Samael Aun Weor, Treatise of Sexual Alchemy
