He had, as he tells. In the same work he tells us that one of his besetting weaknesses had been the craving for applause, and in his Ihya-ul-ulum "Revival of the Religious Sciences" he devotes a long chapter to the dangers involved in a love of notoriety and the cure for it. After his conversion he retired into religious. But he was too noble a character to concentrate himself entirely on his own soul and its eternal prospects.

The requests of his children--and other family affairs of which we have no exact information--caused him to return home. Besides this, the continued progress of the Ismailians connected with the famous Assassins , the spread of irreligious doctrines and the increasing.

In his autobiography referred to above Ghazzali tells us that, after emerging from a state of Pyrrhonic scepticism, he had finally arrived at the conclusion that the mystics were on the right path and true "Arifin," or Knowers of God. But in saying this he meant those Sufis whose mysticism did not carry them into, extravagant utterances like that of Mansur Hallaj, who was crucified at Bagdad A.

Some husbandmen indeed, letting their farms run to waste, set up similar pretensions for themselves; for human nature is pleased with maxims like these, which permit one to neglect useful labour with the idea of acquiring. This notion is productive of great injury, so that the death of one of these foolish babblers would be a, greater benefit to the cause of true religion than the saving alive of ten of them.

If, however, one is not able to procure these substances, it is possible to use oxen, gazelles, and wild or domestic don- keys. The variety of elixirs depend on the possibility of combining the substances of the three kingdoms.

According to the k. It is not through experiment and by following the technical recipes of the ancient alchemists that one arrives at it. Such elixirs [as produced by these recipes] have only an approximate value.

The production of 10 Seventy Books, 1 f. In the physical world all things are composed from the four elements, which are composed, in turn, from the four natures elementary qualities.

The alchemist should manage the changes which the body undergoes as soon as he is able to separate its elements and elementary qualities from each other, those properties with which nature operates.

He will be able, then, according to his wish, to compose a new body, nota- bly the different elixirs which are capable of exerting an influence on the metals. This separation of substances into their elements and natures, treated in detail in the Seventy Books, takes place by means of distillation. His greater interest, however, lies with the separation of animal substances. We know that for the distillation fractionated from an organic substance, e.

The liquid substance which 11 Seventy Books, 41 f. The gaseous substance, which he named oil or grease duhn , he identified with the element of air. This theory teaches us that each of the so-called ele- ments is composed, in turn, of two constituent natures con- nected to matter or substance. Book 47 of the Seventy Books gives the following table regarding this: The same is done with the oil: As for the fire, we eliminate the dryness from it, and it remains hot.

Regarding the earth, we eliminate the coldness from it, and it remains dry.

But the result of these operations will be much more effective if one is able to recover the natures from which the elements are composed. Seventy Books, 52, f. In truth, not an action occurs in the three kingdoms which is not the effect of these elements. It is for this reason that in this craft alchemy , we rely on operations applied to the four elements, by rein- forcing those among them which are too weak and by weakening those which are too strong; in short, by correcting what is deficient.

Whoever succeeds, there- fore, in manipulating the elements of the three king- doms, will attain, therewith, to the knowledge of all things and will comprehend the science of creation and the craft of nature. It is thus, that in the elixir, we introduce a nature which prevails over the corrupt nature residing in the body. For example, with a thing which possesses a surplus of the watery quality, we introduce the fire to it and apply it to the extent necessary, without, however, allowing it to be consumed by the fire, which would only increase the damage.

In this manner, the thing subjected to the action of the fire will become equilibrated and will be brought to the state desired. The present passage only deals with the elixir composed from the elements. Regarding the extremely diffuse character of the Seventy Books, the same processes are treated with more or less detail in many places. An exhaustive study on it is not fea- sible without first publishing all the texts.

After his exposition p. The theory of the decomposition of organic substances into their components is found already, and well elaborated, in the One Hundred and Twelve Books. See especially the description of the triple distillation in the k.

Purification of the fire; 6. Purification of the earth; 7. Application of the elixir: The third book gives the following description of the first distillation: This part of the work [no. In the first book the preparation of the elixir takes one year, while in the tenth book the same operation takes no more than seven days. We heat this pot until the distillation reaches its term and the water is entirely extracted from it: Next, we pour a little of this distilled water in the receiver so that, in the succeeding distillation, the descent of the fire and the air will be able to take place and nothing will attach to the glass from which the receiver is made Then, we raise the heat until the fire and the air become entirely distilled and the distillation com- pletely reaches its term.

After that, put the product i. We put the water into the cucurbit, where we have left a substance having a strong dryness, such as sulfur or a similar thing. Thus, the humidity of the water will be dried up by the dryness of the sulfur and by the heat of the fire of the distillation: According to LXX, 45 f.

Books of the Seventy Books treat the distillation of certain animal substances, such as blood, sperm, urine, marrow, hair, etc. As for the heat and the dryness, we proceed in the same manner as we did with the humidity and the coldness: It is the same for the earth, which is cold and dry: We continue to distill the water until it becomes white and brilliant. Taken from the cucurbit, it will condense into flakes resembling salt. Hence, the term. The Humidity: We distill the oil until what results from this is a gluey and very elastic substance This sub- stance will never solidify.

On the contrary, if the heat of the fire touches it, it will dissolve and become air, which requires, however, a long time. The Heat: By the treatment, we cause the tincture to become a transparent, brilliantly deep red body, shining and never dull.

The Dryness: It is hard, dull, dry, or even in the form of a powder of atomic constitution,21 which reduces its vol- ume by the contraction of its particles , and augments by their expansion. These purely tech- nical passages contain, among other things, precise infor- mation on the apparatus used for distillation.

Having extracted it from the tincture, we operate with the oil in three ways. If one desires to use this oil for the major opera- tion, we take it after the extraction, distill it with water, and repeat this moist distillation seventy times.

Several treatises in the One Hundred and Twelve Books, such as the k.

The lower part of the retort should be equal with the top of the water. After this, we subject it again to distillation until its hot part is eliminated and only its humid part remains. We put a sponge soaked with whitened verdigris into the cucurbit, or another drug which can be substi- tuted for it, put the oil into the cucurbit, and distill it.

We continue to repeat this process, by subjecting whatever is distilled each time to a new distillation and renewing the sponge for each distillation.

At this time the preparation of the isolated humidity, which is only connected to substance jawhar , is accomplished [cf. This will take place after seven hundred distilla- tions.

If one does not know the color characteristic for this stage, one must count the number of distillations, for, on the one hand, the work arrives at the charac- teristic color through the correct number of distilla- tions , and, on the other hand, the characteristic color is a sign of the number of distillations.

The secret of this operation is summed up, there- fore, as follows: Then we add the sponge to it when putting it in a condensation ves- sel supplied with stems of bamboo.

Have a care that only the lower half of the retort is in the water As for immersing the retort in the water and distilling it by boiling, this would be too severe. LXX, 41 f. As to their exact function in the distillation apparatus, it is certainly necessary to take these accounts in the proper sense.

For, according to the k. The narrower [the neck of] the vessel which contains the stems, the better Know that this oil of the first degree reaches its perfection after it is sublimated and the humidity to which it is reduced becomes elastic and dark.

When adding the water to it,26 it is necessary that this pos- sess the same degree of purity and be only cold. Likewise, the fire which we add to it must not be other than pure heat, and the earth, pure dryness. As for the weights, we use equal quantities from each of the elements in this operation.

In regard to the extraction of oil for the secon- dary operation, this is easier than for the first. It pos- sesses, however, a less powerful tincture and has less utility. The treatment is the following: We first sepa- rate the oil from the tincture by a humid process.

One has the impression that the author of the Five Hundred Books, different from those of the Seventy, has made the oldest collection the subject of his meditations. Sometimes up to one hundred distillations are added to the aforementioned forty-nine. Some people, how- ever, limit the number of distillations in the vessel supplied with stems to seventy As to the tertiary operation, we first subject the oil to the moist distillation by distilling it twenty-one times with stems of myrtle.

Next, we put it in the con- densation cucurbit and assure [the sealing of] the joint by inserting either a single stem, which is better, or several stems. After that, we apply the dry distillation to it until the completion of forty-nine distillations. The oil will now be able to be used. The basis of this tertiary operation is forty-nine distillations, just as the basis of the secondary operation is seventy, and the basis of the major operation is seven hundred distilla- tions Have a care lest you introduce an element derived from one operation into another operation, for this will lead to ruin and will bring everything to nothing In the major operation it is necessary to use the water made in the major operation, and likewise with the fire, the oil, and the earth; in the secondary operation, the water, the earth, the oil, and the fire derived from the secondary operation; and in the terti- ary operation, the water, the fire, the earth, and the oil derived from the tertiary operation.This theory teaches us that each of the so-called ele- ments is composed, in turn, of two constituent natures con- nected to matter or substance.

Known as the Achaemenid Empire, it came to include Persia, the entire Fertile Crescent, Turkey, and Egypt, and it tried, unsuccessfully, to include Greece.

Your universe will never again be the same. These purely tech- nical passages contain, among other things, precise infor- mation on the apparatus used for distillation.
