I love counting.
Not sheep at night (I have zero sleep problems* thanks to being an Alchemist and adherent of Scientific Principles). No this isn’t some kind of OCD but is a metaphysical desire for accumulation, ingrained in everyone.
*Unless I deviate from natural foods e.g. chocolate digestive biscuits give me nightmares.
No, my counting is the desire to reach maximum capacity i.e. Saturation. This state indicates completion. In other words, “It’s over, we’ve finished; we don’t have to stay here any more – we can start again, sparkling and pure.”
This place is the very edge of the conscious state.
The feeling will be familiar to addictive i.e. spiritual personalities all over the world and – unless the desire is fulfilled in a light, holistic and pure manner – will spiral downwards and manifest in addictions to food, drugs, MONEY….. and all types of behaviour that aims toward a HIT – chemical or physical-mental. Good or very bad.
So, as an Alchemist (turning lead into gold ores), I like to count as many words I can that contain the word for Gold, despite knowing that we’ll never reach saturation point (i.e. never find serendipitous endings) for this word in any language because for as long as babies are born there will be potential to make more gold in its modern usage – money.
A bit like ‘Battleship Potemkin’ with the pram careering down gold-coated steps.
Everyone will be familiar with my latest uncovered word containing ‘gold’: it’s frequently used by politicians across the world:
The word ‘austerity’ is widely referenced in Alchemical practices although some may not recognise the word.
