The great genius will realize the magic of alchemy through his
discoveries and inventions. The new philosophy engendered by his
discoveries will encourage the development of mental powers and
anything will seem possible in the climate of a greater unity of
mind, soul, body, and emotions. People will be able to manipulate the
basic forces of the universe in a wa that will seem utterly fantastic
to those not involved with the occult. People presently involved in
occult and psychic realms currently deal with these forces without
understanding, but in the future understanding will be present,
sharpening the efficacy of the art.
