Nick Marchmont "Alchemy & The Birth of Modern Science" Eternal Knowledge Festival Audio Download
A colourful tale of some of history’s most spectacular edgeworkers. Banned by emperors,paid by kings,pursued by the inquisition: from before the dawn of history alchemists haveexplored the edges of the known. With origins in Egypt and Babylon, alchemy is the story ofhumankind’s earliest quest to understand and bring into balance the inner and outer worlds.
Before their discovery by modern science, alchemical initiates manifested microscopes,submarines, gunpowder, alchohol, porcelain and much, much more. Alchemists were themidwives of ideas and methods that were to become the science of our modern age. 2000years ago, wherever there was an edge there was an alchemist. This is their story.
