During my backpacking adventures through Asia and Australia in my early twenties I read an extraordinary book called the ‘the Alchemist’. I was mesmerized by the story. It was about a young boy that went on a journey and went through different stages of self development with the guidance of a old teacher. The book was filled with many philosophical themes.
One of the themes was the quest for enlightenment through the purification of the soul. The idea that all matter, from the simple minerals to complex organisms, had a single goal of attaining a higher state of being through the process of inner purification. The goal of all matter was to grow towards a higher goal of awareness.
I started reading more books on the subject of Alchemy which means a systematic worldview of matter and conscienceness in which the essence of base elements are changed into more enhanced and pure states through an alchemical process. I was fascinated by short phrases of powerful wisdom like:

It means the interconnectedness of all matter in the universe embodied by the forms and patterns of ideal sacred geometry.
I started to read more about the geometry of the natural world. How it corresponded in form on different scales. How all was guided by the principles of logical order in different complexities. So during my travel I could see myself on a journey looking for spiritual growth. Searching for knowledge about the universe and my place and of humanity in it. And my quest to find the answers to the mysteries of existence in the universe has never stopped ever since.
This blog is my way of documenting the knowledge I have gained ever since.
