These AOBL excerpts are from a much larger work in progress, which is going to take a long time to complete and much of the later volumes won't even have an audience until there is a group of third year students ready for the work. In the interest of disseminating the data as quickly as possible to our members I'm going to issue these as standalone articles. Please don't redistribute these elsewhere. It's fine to print them off for home archive purposes. The Anatomy of the Body of Light is a series of seven volumes on the subject of Abrahadabra and Mutational Alchemy, pertaining to the Body of Light and its mastery. A large portion of it was written by m1thr0s, with some of it ghostwritten by me under m1thr0s' direction. The author of the book is m1thr0s, while I am the "editor." Some of the portions were purpose written while still others are articles chained together in the most logical fashion, as well as content from the booklets. - Izi
The Anatomy of the Body of Light Volume I: Philosophical and Metaphysical Overview of Mutational Alchemy and Abrahadabra
The Abrahadabra Institute’s Body of Light techniques and its highest expression of Mutational Alchemy constitutes a modern Hermetic hybrid school of so-called Inner Alchemy. It references an evolved system of elements built upon simple binary and ternary mathematical structures, (historically referred to as Bigrams, Trigrams, Tetragrams and Hexagrams). These can be observed in the geomantic classics such as the I Ching and the Tai Hsuan Ching from ancient China, among others. Mutational Alchemy is especially focused on the physics of the Body of Light as understood via these most fundamental of all mathematical systems. People who study the traditional Hexagrams (also called permutations) are called Mutationists, since what is generally being studied is change itself as it moves through these various geomantic houses, or structures. Mutational Alchemy is especially focused on the elemental characteristics of these permutations and how they can be proactively combined, providing a logical means of simulating resonant and reactive energy fields.
Mutational Alchemy is one of the highest expressions of Taoism in this world, even though generally Taoist principles rejected analytical process. This constituted a betrayal of Taoism from the beginning, and the reader will find that TAI diverges sharply from various root disciplines it draws from, often at event markers dating back over a thousand years. There is a historical precedent for going along with this divergence, from the revolutionary rise of Tantra against the oppression of conservative Vedic priests, to the syncretic style of Hermetic Alchemy which absorbed anything full of wisdom and usefulness, so that there is a distinctive form of unorthodox Kabbalah, called Qabbalah, within Hermeticism itself that is in itself a very advantaged, but very different school, from traditional religious Kabbalah.
The term Mutational Alchemy is used consistently throughout this book to identify its principles under a general heading that most people should be able to grasp without too much difficulty, once a few basics have been assimilated. In order to understand why this term has evolved, it is essential to recognize what is meant by the term elements, and to understand how these elements compare and differ from their historical counterparts. It is also important to understand where Mutational Alchemy fits in with other major philosophical schools of thought historically. The elemental definitions being employed here will be dealt with in future chapters and take up the majority of this work. As well as this ideas new and specific to Mutational Alchemy will also be discussed, but a generalized philosophical foundation can be addressed in less time and should logically come first.
Mutational Alchemy does not exist in a vacuum. It is linked to virtually every form of transcendental thought that has ever found expression in this world. It comes as close to an alchemical universal solvent as anything ever published. Clarifying why and how such a claim could be taken seriously will be the challenge and focus of this book. It is my contention that this thesis exhibits all of the known attributes of the legendary Philosopher's Stone sought after for millennia.
Naturally, it will ultimately be up to each individual to decide upon this independently, but I would not presume to make such an outrageous claim if I did not consider it unequivocally true. Though not entirely complete, this advanced transmutational physics is too important to be left lying in shadow. The time has come to make every effort to communicate its content to the world at large.
It will not be possible in this book to explore all of the philosophical and scientific parallels contained within its framework, but it is important to hyphenate the most apparent of these to establish an irrefutable pattern of continuity with past and present models of perfection on a global scale. I have deemed it best to begin from a basic overview of its most apparent traditional influences. Additionally, before we begin this book it is important for readers to know that when I use the word Man or Mankind I am referring to all genders. In the Chinese system of polarities, Yin is Earth (female), Yang is Heaven (male), and Jen is Man (neutral).
I will now conduct a brief presentation of each pre foundational element involved in the synthesis of Mutational Alchemy, although the reader is expected to catch up on these subjects on their own, if they have not covered them already. The Abrahadabra Institute will present each in turn in their membership coursework so if you are already enrolled rest assured these subjects will be covered.
