BRAID OF CORRESPONDENCES
(AMOUNTING TO A SPEED COURSE IN IMMORTALITY)
At the umpteenth degree of ordinary analysis, patterns emerge.
One is left with riddles.
EXAMPLE 1 (MAJOR EXAMPLE):
One such riddle is found by calculating the soul of the book titled
"The Elixir of Immortal Life".
The soul reads: "If you concoct a solution that was not of
Mercury or Morgana what you can trust is not the solution to the
From this we can reach an insight about Mercury and Morgana,
which is the first braid:
FIRST BRAID: Morgana is women in general, and Mercury is
the people missing! (people who have died through the ages).
From this we can reach a puzzle about Mercury and Morgana,
which is the second braid:
BRAID 2: What if women are missing, and Mercury is a goddess
or a danger?
From this we get the alchemical significance of this particular
braid, which is that time is passing quickly and there is only one
goddess. Women might help, but they are just as bad as
Morgana. If one asks Mercury for help, she is a goddess
traveling quickly like quicksilver.
If we want further meaning, we must translate further, accepting
all truths that have already been explained.
BRAID 3: What if you have a daughter named Athena?
If Athena is already present, then we can go on to another braid.
At this point 'braid' has been interpreted in a Motley way to mean
'bride'. However, Athena isn't necessarily important unless we
want to know the meaning of quicksilver. That might be a
distraction, since in the original soul of the Elixir of Life, Mercury
was a problem, not a solution. We could look for a solution
through Morgana, or we could continue the puzzle. Do we want
someone named 'Brad'? Then that is a Motley solution that ends
the braid. Otherwise, we continue...
BRAID 4: Do we want to be 'quick' or 'silver'? That might point
towards Morgana the Goddess.
BRAID 5: Now the solutions concern either Quicksilver or the
Goddess Morgana. Does the Goddess Morgana have the Elixir
of Life? Can you become immortal by changing form?
If the answer to these questions is no, then continue to the next
braid. Otherwise, immortality may already have some practical
BRAID 6: Can you raise the dead, or become timeless?
Then you have another type of practical solution.
Perhaps you can die forever, or war with the gods?
If being alive is absolutely a war with the gods, these answers are
both obvious, but there is a choice.
Can you transform Mercury into Gold, or kill time?
Wisdom may be important for immortal life.
Can you make time golden, or bargain with time?
Negotiations may be important if you are not wise, and
negotiations may end better if you are.
Can you make material payments or settle for less?
These are less fortunate answers, but may sometimes be valuable
to appreciate. Appreciating your life may acquire value.
Can you become immaterial or unattached, or spend less time, or
do something physically different?
These guesses may settle things that were not yet clear.
Can you give up the ghost, or is time insignificant, or you have a
new soul, or you need to stop meditating, or you need to have sex,
or you need to turn the hour glass?
These results might conclude the search for everyone, unless
some further combination is possible.
At this point Athena breaks down and takes drugs. The result is
Verdegris, which helps people with infinite ability to construct it.
However, for average people the biggest help might be a college
degree, membership in the Golden Dawn, the Invisible Hand, the
"Believe in yourself" appears to be Jesus' motto at this time.
The gods seem to be cruel.
The literal answers roughly amount to the idea that your new soul
THE FOLDING OF THE BRAID
Now imagine that
(1: the first fold) the soul changes.
(2: the second fold) the change can make one immortal.
Now it appears there is a road to immortality!
EXAMPLE 2: THE TWISTED BRAID (MINOR EXAMPLE)
You start with 'mild tea'.
Braid 1: Or is it 'the mild T'? Obscurity.
Braid 2: Or is it 'the mild TT?' At this point one might forget what
Braid 3: Or is it 'mild T.E.A.?' Such as 'to each another?' or
'technical employment association?'
Braid 4: Somehow one must know, it is not T, TT, or T.E.A. and
thus it is tea!
