alchemy & art

<< I believe that alchemy is the Art and I believe that Art is alchemy. I believe that any artistic act is a magical act and I think that many of the alchemists would have agreed with me. Probably Claudio Monteverdi for one. As I understand it, he invented opera purely to put over alchemical ideas.>>
