Porta Magica - The Hermetic Door and Villa Palombara

Rome's Porta Magica - Hermetic Door - and Naples' Pietatella are the world's only incontestable alchemical monuments. Particularly the Porta Magica do not contain hidden symbols, but display them in an unmistakable form; they are locations built to represent alchemy, and nothing else.

The Porta Magica was opened in 1680 in the wall of the Palombara's "Horto"[1]. Above the door is a bas-relief containing symbols already seen in the Rosacrucian work Aurum Seculum Redivivum of 1621, by Henricus Madathanus, from which we reproduce a detail, an evocative, synthetic display, a six pointed star surrounded by four angels.

Today this alchemic door can be found in the northern corner of the gardens of Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II. Its original position was about 50 meters toward the intersection between via Carlo Alberto and via San Vito, along an ancient perimetric wall that faced Strada Felice, with Villa Palombara situated between the old strada Felice and strada Gregoriana, now called via Merulana.

The Hermetic Door originated within the context of Queen Christina of Sweden who, having abdicated and converted to Catholicism, came to live in Rome. She was thus able to concentrate on the only arguments that interested her, that is, philosophy, spirituality, and alchemy. At her court gathered exceptional individuals about which we will write soon.

In 1873 the Porta Magica was dismantled and reassembled in 1888 within the gardens in Piazza Vittorio, in an old perimetric wall belonging to the old S. Eusebio church. Next to it were added two statues of the god Bes originally in the gardens of the Quirinale Palace[2], that have something to do with the theme the Porta deals with.

Bes is a kind of “Leonardo”, or Taotie, that is, a solar daimon[3], meaning the radiating and devouring power of the sun. It devours shapes, and useless ideas of "truth" so that may triumph the evidence radiated by the naked sense of everything when we let that everything be once more submerged within eternity.

EPIGRAPHS LOST IN THE VILLA

VILLAE IANUAM TRANANDO RECLUDENS IÀSON OBTINET LOCUPLES VELLUS MEDEAE 1680

Walking through this Villa's door, Jason the discoverer obtains Medea's vellum in big quantity 1680.

The vellum belongs to Medea because succeeding is a magical fact, a re-conversion of one's own acts and thoughts. The Argonauts were a symbol for Queen Cristina of Sweden[4].

 

AQUA A QUA HORTI IRRIGANTUR NON EST AQUA A QUA HORTI ALUNTUR

The water irrigating these gardens is not the water feeding them.

This obviously means, at the same time, the secret fire of dew and March equinox rain plus radical moisture.

 

CUM SOLO SOPHORUM LAPIS NON SALE ET DATUR SOLE SILE LUPIS

Be content with just the salt of knowledge and the sun of reason.

Because salt comes from the sun, that is from light, and because rational knowledge comes from metaphysical inspiration that radiates like the sun.

 

QUI POTENTI HODIE PECUNIA NATURAE ARCANA EMITUR SPURIA REVELAT NOBILITAS SED MORTEM NON LEGITIMA QUAERIT SAPIENTIA

He who reveals the mysteries of nature to an influential person is looking for his own death.

Here we go.

In this villa, from heavenly dew, tilled fields and running waters, the furrowed soil fruit gives; in the meanwhile, in saltpeter and because of the sun, from the dispersed manure vapors rise. This small forest always looks the same; while spontaneously vine shoots, sincere pear and apple trees are born. Near the lake there is a small forest where who plays is not the wolf, but the hare; it jokes without offending the meek sheep and the birds. The dog guarding the chaste lambs chases predators away; and the countryside air is enough to give health back to the sick. This estate fills with produce the city's streets. The plowed furrows give cups of wine for your thirst. Modest man, enter! May Venus stay away! To you, thieves, I close my doors. Drink merrily and copiously pure wine, as if you were Bacchus himself. Rejoice among the vines, and take freely whatever you may desire. For you I sincerely prepare what you ask for. Here bees produce in great amounts sweet, soft honey. Cheers to you, who are crying in the shadow of these trees. Now, if you understood this, that here summer mixes with spring, you would not be crying with so much sadness. If you remained here, among the flowers, you would not cry, because here you can breathe the fragrance of air. Therefore, the melancholic souls recover and learn to hope once again among the mountains, the hills, the paths and in the valley of this villa, where the sheepfold protects the flock. For you I make a wish: may it always be thusly.

But you, as you wake up, notice here on this jamb what concrete did generate - because stones are born from putrefaction – and notice that time vaguely jokes, rapidly destroying everything

Several alchemical works have been mixed, here as in the rest of the text, but there are also various philosophical and moral considerations, as in the case of de Sangro's Pietatella. The final phrase is about saltpetre, quoting Flamel about the secret that we should recognize thank to the bones[5] of the dead.

EPIGRAPHS ON THE ROSE WINDOW

TRIA SUNT MIRABILIA DEUS ET HOMO MATER ET VIRGO TRINUS ET UNUS

Three are the wonders; god and man, mother and virgin, trine but one

Three examples referring to Sulfur and Salt, indicating respectively:

  • the VITRIOL see the meaning of Immanuel[6]
  • the dew which is the Mercury from which a salt is anyway extracted, even if it remains virgin, and precisely because that's what it is, and then
  • the three principles that are already — or derive from - the potential Philosopher's Stone, or First Matter, the Prima Materia

 

CENTRUM IN TRIGONO CENTRI

The center lies at the center of the triangle.

Designating:

  • the golden and spermatic nature of antimony (see the cross)
  • as well as your inner reality, made physical, of the Immanuel,
  • then both the precipitating golden water (dew), and that contained in the human mine (the human vitriol – urine).

So, these are three operations altogether. But, also, this “centrum” evokes the "King of Salts" as the center of the Earthen Element.

EPIGRAPHS ON THE ARCHITRAVE

רוחאלהים (RUACH ELOHIM)

Spirit of Deities, a ancient Hebrew and biblical name of the Mystery

HORTI MAGICI INGRESSUM HESPERIUS CUSTODIT DRACO ET SINE ALCIDE COLCHICAS DELICIAS NON GUSTASSET IASON

The hesperius dragon guards the entrance to the magical garden and, without the will of Hercules, Jason would not be able to savor the Colchides' delights.

Concerning the necessity of preparing the substances needed for the various endeavours (the labours of Hercules), and in particular useful to raise antimony's melting point (the dragon) and to strengthen its nature with the right marriage of the virgin (antimony) with the warrior (iron).

EPIGRAPHS ON THE DOORSTEPS

SI SEDES NON IS

This motto, almost a palindrome, reads as "If you sit you don't go" from left to right and as "If you don't sit you go" from right to left.

It probably means that eagles come last as a consequence and without an effort but they must be done, or the Stone will remain unripe. In fact the motto is written on the first step, which means that you are almost entered.

EST OPUS OCCULTUM VERI SOPHI APERIRE TERRAM UT GERMINET

SALUTEM PRO POPULO

It is the hidden work of the wise man to open the earth so that the people's salvation may sprout

I think it goes back in the process (everything here is appositely fragmented and a bit out of focus) and it generally deals with philosophical mercury that, extracted from salt, earth, or air sprouts or ferments, generating the power that will dent matter, opening it.

EPIGRAPHS ON THE DOOR JAMB

FILIUS NOSTER MORTUUS VIVIT REX AB IGNE REDIT ET CONIUGIO GAUDET OCCULTO 

Our son comes back from the dead and lives again, comes back as the king of fire and profits from the hidden marriage

This is probably also an antimonial symbolism concerning the formation of the Regolus after the sub-fusion obtained marrying iron thanks to the priest, the necessar salts

SI FECERIS VOLARE TERRAM SUPER CAPUT TUUM EIUS PENNIS AQUAS TORRENTIUM CONVERTES IN PETRAM

If you will make the earth fly above your head together with her feathers, you will change torrents into stone

Without getting into details, we already said in the nushadir article about which wings can distill “terram”[7]. So this enigma deals with a sublimation whose product can fix substance made "liquid" for the occasion.

Or and again about the harvesting of the heavenly substance useful to make a kind of philosophical mercury.

DIAMETER SPHERAE THAU CIRCULI CRUX ORBI NON ORBIS PROSUNT

The diameter of the sphere, the tau of the circle, the cross of the orbit do not help the blind. The salts, the vitriol, and antimony. Just to say - making fun of someone – “Learn how to use your symbolic mind”.

QUANDO IN TUA DOMO NIGRI CORVI PARTURIENT ALBAS COLUMBAS TUNC VOCABERIS SAPIENS

When in your home black crows will give birth to white doves, then you will be called a savant.

Similar to the last aphorism, being that everything here seems to me all mixed up and just exposed as single, topic, highlighted informations. So, “Now” the black becomes white.

QUI SCIT COMBURERE AQUA ET LAVARE IGNE FACIT DE TERRA CAELUM ET DE CAELO TERRAM PRETIOSAM

He who can burn with water and wash with fire turns the earth into sky and the sky into precious earth.

It speaks of the alchemical ability to detonate, reduce to lime et cetera, and of the creation of generally alcaline solvents, thank to the inner fires that are conceiled in some substances and in nature, which allows you to make volatile what was fixed, or visible what was very subtle.

AZOT ET IGNIS DEALBANDO LATONAM VENIET SINE VESTE DIANA 
Azoth and Fire: whitening latona Diane without clothes will come

It deals with the white phase, with which, they say, the Opus advances without any more jumps. Usually it is said tha,t in this phase you, can throw away your books.

But why did he put this phrase at the end?

1. A garden

2. The Quirinale Palace in Rome, is one of the three official residences of the President of the Italian Republic. The palace has been in use since Roman times, as excavations in the gardens testify. On this hill, the Romans built temples to the most sacred Gods Flora and Quirinus.

3. See in this issue “a chinese kiln”.

4. In 1653, Cristina instituted the Order of the Amaranta, bearing the emblem evergreen wreath as a symbol of eternal life, the secret meaning of being made up of leaves amaranta, a symbolic plant to Colchis, land tied to the myth the Argonauts.

5. See Neumann considerations on saltpeter in R.A.M.S. digital, where Neumann writes that saltpetre is an "oily and urinous salt" produced by a putrid substance of animal or vegetable origin capable of conveying a universal agent, ie a nitrous gas precipitated in the form of a salt but, he adds, which is partly made of the rock, plus the limestone and the cemented wall. Neumann, citing Flamel about bones, concludes that "since the walls are limestone or joined with lime, we know that just lime is one of the best magnets". Bones and calcite has a lot in common, particularly if well prepaired. For instance, with the deer’s stage it is easy to make a peculiar salt similar to saltpeter or sal armoniac.

6. In 1646, Christina of Sweden planned the foundation of the Order of Immanuel, עִמָּנוּאֵל, an epithet of Christ tied to the Rosicrucian tradition. They read this mystic name not so much as "God with us", but as "God in us." Later she instituted the Order of Amaranta. See note 4.

7. Take a look to the symbol of planet Earth in astrology and hermetism.

    The twenties, Nice, France... Gold! This article comes from a French review that dates from 1927, written by Andre Ibels for the Nouveau Journal de Nice At the end of the five chapters of the article you will find the protestation by a Professor of Engineering at the Conservatoire des Arts et Metiers in Paris, that accused the scientists of her time of being cowardly.

    We took the article from the Adam Mc Lean website1, probably the best site of alchemy ever. The article was written by Mark House, an American researcher in alchemy, who in the next issue of NitroGeno will write a commentary about this text and the experiments that took place.

    How i succeeded in making gold according to the process of mr. Jollivet Castelot - December 1925
    By A. Ballandras

    Dosage of Gold obtained by the second method.

    The residue, which had been obtained by a mixture of:

    • Silver 10 grams
    • Tin 3 grams
    • Arsenic sulphide 3 grams
    • Antimony sulphide 3 grams

    was crushed as much as possible and subdued (read: subjected) to a treatment of pure chloric acid like in the first method. [Here is a reference to a first method - not presented here - the above being the second method presented by Ballandras from a text, the name and size of which is unknown to me.] However, to completely eliminate the silver and the tin employer, I scrupled to begin the indicated treatments, that is to say that the powder which was obtained having been subdued first to the action of azotic acid then washed with distillated water, then subdued to the action of chloric acid, then once more washed with distillated water, and these different operations were begun once more with another portion of pure azotic acid, and another portion of pure chloric acid after having carefully washed the insoluble residue was subdued to the prolonged action of aqua regalis following:

    Chloric acid - 15 parts/ Azotic acid - 4-5 parts.

    It must be noted that this thing happened during the ebullition (bubbling; boiling) The washed residue contained the slighter part of gold, this thing would be found dissolved in the last liquor, which I obtained. After 18 hours of digestion at the temperature of about 25 degrees, I subdued the mixture to ebullition during 3 hours. After refrigeration, I filtered this on wool of glass and I looked to see if parts were not drawn along in suspense. Finding nothing I proceeded with an analysis of the liquor which I obtained. For that month I made two parts strictly equal of the liquor, the first being destined to qualitative analysis, the other quantitative.

    A) Qualitative Analysis: Assay of usual reagents:

    • Chloride of Tin - Rose colored precipitate
    • Pure Soda in solution - Voluminous yellow reddish precipitate
    • Sulfate of Iron - During ebullition, metallic precipitate, greenish black very dense spangles.

    B) Quantitative Analysis:

    The second part of the liquor destined to undergo quantitative analysis was treated by H2S when the most important part of chloric and azotic acids were driven out by a prolonged ebullition.

    This time the liquor was slightly acid and had a weak smell of chlorine. I called H2S into action; about 20 minutes long. The black precipitate which I obtained was received by a filter paper carefully washed first with well distillated water, then with hot water and at last with chloric acid. After drying in the vapor-bath, the precipitate was put in a capsule of porcelain and heated in a mould at about 850 degrees, so as to destroy the sulphides precipitated with gold i.e., the arsenic and the antimony. These were naturally decomposed by the temperature of 850 degrees to which it had been subdued during two hours. The quantity of gold obtained was 0.238 grains. The half of the liquor having served for the dissolution having been turned to good use for the qualitative analysis it followed that the whole quantity of gold contained in the original liquor should be equal to double the quantity obtained. i.e., 0.476 grains of gold per 10 grams of silver employed, yield then was 0.476 grains of gold per gram silver. {I must point out that the obtaining of gold is not a mathematical regularity, that is to say, the purport (proportion) of residue changes according to the conditions of heating.}

    old drugstore

    2) Dry method

    I acted on 22 grains of chemically pure silver supplied by Messrs. Poulenc of Paris and on 3.5 grains of chemically pure orpiment supplied by the Pharmacie Central of Paris. The mixture was heated to about 1600 C in a metal smelting furnace for about ¾ hour. The residue obtained was again melted for an hour with the addition of orpiment, after having been hammered for half an hour and re-melted with the addition of small quantities of orpiment every 10 minutes, it was withdrawn. After cooling and the addition of chemically pure antimony sulphide, it was again put back into the furnace, small quantities of orpiment being thrown in every 5 minutes. The residue obtained had a dark metallic tint, after hammering it became slightly golden.

    Analysis of the Residue

    The residue dissolved in chemically pure 36 degree HNO3 first cold and then hot, gave an abundant pulverulent deposit. This deposit after being washed and treated with HN3 to dissolve the arsenic and antimony salts was completely dissolved in aqua regia. The liquor after being chlorinated and filtered was subjected to the reagents of Platinum and gold.

    Mr. Andre Vandenberghe who was acting as preparator for this experiment, had thought that in accordance with the law of evolution of matter, the transmutation of bodies into gold should be preceded or accompanied by their transmutation into platinum. According to Mendeleiev’s progression, we have Pt - 195.2 and Au - 197.2

    The reactions of gold were quite characteristic; the reactions of platinum also seemed to reveal its presence. The quantity of gold obtained in this experiment was estimated at about one gram. I emit the hypothesis that the arsenic acts as a catalyzer and the sulphur as a ferment in this transmutation.

    Jollivet Castelot, Douai, December 1925

    A recent experiment in transmutation

    By M. Jollivet Castelot

    All my research work on transmutation since 1908 has started from the fact that gold is found in nature associated with antimony and arsenic sulphides as well as with Tellurium which is considered as the mineralizer of gold. I therefore considered it logical to introduce Tellurium into the artificial combination of silver and arsenic and antimony sulphides that I make. The following is an account of one of my recent experiments:bI prepared a mixture composed of 6 grams of chemically pure silver, 1 gram of native orpiment (Arsenic trisulphide A52S3) free from gold, 1 gram of chemically pure antimony sulphide, and 2 grams of chemically pure Tellurium. I added pure silica to the usual fluxes. This mixture was heated in the furnace in the usual way for one hour at a temperature of 1100 C (approximately) [note: parenthesis are not mine AMWH].

    The residue obtained was of a blackish grey color with violet reflections. It weighed 6.420 grains. When subjected to the action of nitric acid, the residue was attacked with difficulty and greenish metallic particles became detached. The solution was then decanted and a greenish-yellow residue remained which was kept at the boiling point in nitric acid for several hours, after decanting off the liquor once again, the residue, which had not changed, was washed, treated with ammonia and then subjected to the action of aqua regia in which it was entirely dissolved after boiling for several hours.

    The solution after being chlorinated and then subjected to the reagents of gold, gave the following:

    • Potassium Ferrocyanide - greenish brown coloration.
    • Tin Protochloride + Tin Bichloride - a yellow bronze coloration and then a metallic deposit of the same shade.
    • Ammonia - coloration and precipitate identical with the preceding one and which became transformed into a yellow deposit of fulminating gold at the end of a few hours.
    • Formol - light yellowish black metallic precipitate.
    • Peroxide of Hydrogen - light very finely divided brownish black precipitate.
    • Oxalic acid - yellowish black precipitate.
    • Ferrous Sulphate - golden yellow metallic precipitate.
    • Caustic Potash - a fairly abundant golden yellow metallic precipitate at the end of a few hours.

    The presence of gold was therefore very distinctly shown and a remarkable feature was that the metal obtained possessed the yellow bronze color of gold telluride and of native silver. I had therefore produced a bronze colored gold in my laboratory by artificial means thanks to the intervention of the Tellurium.

    “A certain amount of gold was certainly lost in this test as in all my previous tests, for it is known that arsenic, antimony and Tellurium entrain gold in their fusion and their volatilization. In order to obviate this disadvantage, I had thought of making the vapors of arsenic and antimony sulphides and of Tellurium act on the silver in fusion in a closed vessel by means of a special device, but I have been forced to give up this scheme for the time being on account of the difficulties met with for the construction of this apparatus, the cost of which would be very high. I consider it certain that if the vapors were allowed to bubble through the melted silver, a much higher yield of gold would be obtained than that I have obtained hitherto by an imperfect and too rapid contact of the bodies in presence; while it is undoubtedly necessary to make them react on one another in the state of vapor in a closed vessel.” Jollivet Castelot, Douai, April 24th, 1926

    The chemical manufacture of gold account of one of my last experiments in the transmutation of silver into gold

    As a sequel to my previous work on the artificial synthesis of gold, I have introduced Tin into these new tests as it is also often associated with gold in nature. The following is a description of this new process, thanks to which the percentage of gold obtained destroys all the objections that are raised with regard to impurities.

    I made an intimate mixture of 6 grams of chemically pure silver of which the purity was tested by a professional chemist, the Head of the laboratory of one of the most important Works of the region. 2 Grams of antimony sulphide, 1 gram of orpiment, and 1 gram of Tin; all these bodies were obtained from the Establishment Poulenc of Paris and were chemically pure. I added the usual fluxes and then heated the whole in a crucible in the furnace to about 1100 C fort2 about 1 hour, twice adding a small quantity of antimony sulphide.

    The residue obtained was treated for a long period in pure 36 degree nitric acid, first cold and then at the boiling point.

    The insoluble residue was next washed with distilled water, treated with ammonia, washed again and finally treated for a long period with boiling aqua regia. The liquor when filtered and subjected to the reagents of gold showed the presence of this metal in the form of deposits3 which maybe estimated at 0.05 grains in all, which is very high considering the 6 grams of silver employed.

    With Oxalic acid, the solution turned violet and gave an abundant black pulverulent precipitate.

    With Hydrogen Peroxide, a very finely divided precipitate of gold.

    With Formic Aldehyde, a brown precipitate of gold.

    With Tin Protochloride, an intense violet pink coloration.

    The addition of Tin to the other bodies has certainly facilitated the reactions of the gold and increased the yield of this metal which can be manufactured artificially by my process.

    It would be easy to show that, given the respective prices of gold and of the other substances that are used in my process to produce it, a profit could be obtained if the process were worked industrially; all the more so as the greater part of the silver employed can be recovered at each test.

    I believe I now hold the key to the regular and even industrial manufacture of gold. But the industrial question is voluntarily put aside from my thoughts, for my only object is the search for pure scientific truth.
    Jolivet Castelot, Douai, April 15th, 1927

    Extracts from the press

    “It must be admitted that it is extraordinary and incomprehensible that France for the past ten years has refused to take an interest in the experiments of a rich and universally respected scientist who has given proofs of his worth, even after the conclusive experiments carried out by an official chemist, Mr Ballandras of Lyons.”
    Andre Ibels, La Razon, June 8, 1927

    It is unjust, gentlemen, that a scientist of the value of Mr. Jollivet Castelot should be held in suspicion at the very moment when he is losing his sight through overwork. To continue his work, however embarrassing it may be to yours, is a sacred duty.”
    Declaration by Mademoiselle M.L. of Paris. Professor of Engineering at the Conservatoire des Arts et Metiers, Paris, at the Chemical Congress in Paris. October 1927

    “Oh! it is not that Mr. Jollivet Castelot has not attempted to make his invention known in France, on the contrary, he has written leaflets and books and has founded reviews for this purpose... Not only was he not taken seriously, but he was also a butt to the sarcasm and even to the insults of the official scientists in general and of the Nobelist Perrin in particular. The Acedemie des Sciences itself - as usual - refused to record his communication.”
    Andre Ibels, Nouveau Journal de Nice, October 16, 1927

  • On making gold yesterday. Tradition, ethics, history On making gold yesterday. Tradition, ethics, history

    It is essential not to fall into the incorrect idea of believing that alchemy only means “to make gold”, as we have already explained in the editorial, and we invite everyone to read it because it contains all the ethics of the science/art in just a few sentences.

  • Nevertheless, we can make Gold, absolutely Nevertheless, we can make Gold, absolutely

    To create Gold through Alchemy is just like free climbing a very steep cliff without any safety lock, a situation where the handholds are few, tilted and small.
