# The Philosopher's Stone and the Vitruvian Man

Can we raise our Heart & Brain Consciousness to achieve the Alchemical Philosopher's Stone? Would we be taking part in the next evolution of Human Awareness? Would it be time to see the world around us with new eyes and new perception? Indeed it would. Allow me to explain:

The Philosopher's Stone is a term used to denote Supreme Wisdom. The union of Divine Consciousness with the lower consciousness, or personality, has been the goal of Initiates of all ages. Esoterically, the Philosopher's Stone is the secret of the transmutation of base metals (base emotions) into gold (Divine Consciousness).

The Philosopher's Stone is "Raising the Feminine and Collective Subconscious into Balanced Equilibrium," according to Dr. Robert Edward Grant. This alchemical feat is accomplished through non judgement, acceptance, and letting go of "conditioning" and bias, according to Dr. Grant. Decrypting Leonardo's 'Vitruvian Man', among other things, gives us the Philosopher's Stone. This points to the ushering in of the Age of Aquarius.

"In philosophy the Stone of the Wise Man is 'supreme and unalterable Reason'. To find the Absolute in the Infinite, in the Indefinite, and in the Finite, this is the Magnum Opus, the Great Work of the Sages, which Hermes called the Work of the Sun."

-Albert Pike

"Leonardo Da Vinci in his world famous square and circle drawing of the Vitruvian Man made his circle with precisely a 4.32 inch 'Ra-Deus' (the Inch and Foot were the prevalent measurement in Leonardo's time period); 432 is indeed the foundation of the Pythagorean Tetraktys and Pythagorean Just and Precise Temperament Tuning (432hz as Note A in the 5th Octave). A few months ago, I went as far as naming it Thoth's Constant ("T" which is also TIME) when I discovered that e^π = .0432."

-Robert Edward Grant

"The Square's unique proportions point precisely to a Pentagon's exact inscribing within the Circle and the Hexagon informing the outer Square. This combination of Hexagon and Pentagon pointed to both Microcosm and Macrocosm. 'The As Above, So Below' principle of Hermetic Wisdom and the Unity Polyhedron: The Icosahedron (Water) all together signifying 'The Return of the Water-Bearer/Divine King'. The span of his arms is represented as precisely 6 feet and in fact, the base width of the Da Vinci Square is exactly 7.2 inches (a fractal of 72 inches that IS indeed the FathoM."

-Robert Edward Grant

“The Philosopher's Stone is an ancient symbol of the perfected and regenerated man whose divine nature shines forth through a chain of purified and unfolded vehicles. As the rough diamond is dull and lifeless when first removed from the black carbon, so the spiritual nature of man in its "fallen" state reveals little, if any, of its inherent luminosity."

-Manly P. Hall

According to Dr. Robert Edward Grant:

Two Right Triangles that were very uniquely derived from the Square Root of 3 --with Hypotenuse value of ((Root3)-1 )10 = 7.320508. I also noticed that the same Triangle could be derived with identical values using ONLY 1's and 24 to derive each perfect side, demonstrating how 'Threeness' emerges from 'Oneness'. Earlier today I pondered what the size (dimensions) of an Equilateral Triangle embedded within the Vitruvian Man based on the 'DaVinci Circle' radius fixed at 4.32 inches. Imagine my surprise when I noticed that ((Root3)-1 )10 (.7320508 inches again!) would be the exact dimensions of such a Triangle precisely matching the Trinity Triangles I had drawn only a couple days ago as a result of unrelated research. When I inscribed the square within the Triangle I noticed something else very unique happening: the base of the circle tangency becomes a natural consequence of the inherent geometry by inscribing the largest Square that will fit inside the Triangle and likewise doing the same for the largest circle that will inscribe within the Triangle.

Hypotenuse of 26 versus Height of 24 will possess a base of 1. Their mirrored inverse values 1/.24 for the Hypotenuse, 1/.26 for the Height yields: 1/.624 for the Base!

This means that the number 624 holds some kind of ONE-NESS characteristic through its inverse mirrored reflection/s. And this could ONLY have been accomplished by a perfect balancing of the Da Vinci Circle (representing the Feminine) and the Da Vinci Square (the Masculine): The Perfect Alchemical Union/Marriage of Balanced Energies. When we equilibrate the Radius of the Da Vinci Circle = 4.32 inches, the Height of the Right Triangle is 8.64 inches, it's Hypotenuse is 9.36 (!!), and its Base is 3.6. Therefore 3.6 x 2.4 = 8.64 and 3.6 x 2.6 = 9.36...

Finally, Secondly, when the Height is 1/.26 and the Hypotenuse is 1/.24, the number 1/.26 the Height value yields a MOST Unique number as relates to Circles: 1/.26 = 3.846153846153846......And .3846153846153846*(360°) = 138.46153846153846....

NO OTHER NUMBER DOES THIS with a CIRCLE.

-Dr. Robert Edward Grant

"The Staff of Hermés is geometric proportions are based on the IDENTICAL ratios inherent to DaVinci's Vitruvian Man, the Dollar Bill Triangle/Pyramid and the Atalanta Fugiens. This is based on a Logarithmic Base value of 1.083333.... and its whole number exponential values as well as the 1:2.4:2.6 Right Triangle....such a triangle is also created from the Right Triangle made from the 'Infinite Sum'; the 'Infinite Factorial' and the 'Infinite Difference'. Another Hermetic encryption uncovered?"

-Robert Edward Grant

He who possesses the Philosophers Stone possesses Truth, the greatest of all treasures, and is therefore rich beyond the calculation of man; he is immortal because Reason takes no account of death and he is healed of Ignorance --the most loathsome of all diseases. The Hermetic Stone is Divine Power, which all men seek but which is found only by such as exchange for it that temporal power which must pass away. To the mystic, the Philosophers Stone is perfect love, which transmutes all that is base and 'raises' all that is dead.”
