Recently I thought about Alchemy and I was thinking of the law of the Conservation of mass. The rule basically says that, in this already existing world (in a system), nothing comes from nothing and nothing perishes in nothing, therefore, it ” implies that mass can neither be created nor destroyed, although it may be rearranged in space, or the entities associated with it may be changed in form, as for example when light or physical work is transformed into particles that contribute the same mass to the system as the light or work had contributed. The law implies (requires) that during any chemical reaction, nuclear reaction, or radioactive decay in an isolated system, the total mass of the reactants or starting materials must be equal to the mass of the products.” (thank you Wikipedia)
Phew I hope this was not too hard to understand!
What I am trying to say is. I thought about birth and I thought how wonderful it is that the whole world starts to give mass to oneself from the moment two poeple make love, we are born, to the moment we grow up and then, when we get older, we start to give mass to the world until our death. Just the idea of it let me feel as being part of something big, receiving and giving the blessing of the whole world. Of God in person. And if we stay in this idea and get rid of a model determined just in physics. Think about the personality we become and the thoughts we do give into the world. Where do they go? What do we change with them?
I believe that everything we think, everything we do, our whole existence has an impact much more defining as we realize in this world. And not only our existence, every existence matter, every existence has an impact on our lifes, on each life and even on the reality itself. But one small variable stands and I will whisper it softly, knowledge (Erkenntnis) is the key to perceiving reality.
