Background

A description of the experience

A subtle Allegory concerning the Secrets of Alchemy – Michael Maier

Moist warm Air has Fire for its father and Water for its mother, and retains the most active qualities of both its parents ….

In the same way Asia binds Europe (Earth) and Africa (Fire) together, the grossest and the most subtle of the Elements; but without Asia (Air) there would be no union between them.

By means of Air, Fire clings gladly to the Earth and fosters it, but without Air, the Fire soon goes out.
