BECAUSE its rule resonates with the noble beauty of perfect proportions, giving me the sense of enough, and the knowing of when to let it rest.
Such sense of ideal measure (which is Self-mastery) is conveyed by the Golden Mean, as the Art of maintaining an optimal moderate position between two extremes. It is in the Golden Rule as the heart of religiousness itself. It is also in the Philosopher’s Stone as the science of transmuting metal or “mental” into matter and energy.
A major problem in today’s science is: what role does the mental play? Can mind change itself into matter, and turn it into energy?
For hundreds of years alchemists looked at the same questions, toiling in their laboratories to generate a mythical substance known as the Philosopher’s Stone. This stone was key to the transmutation of lead into gold, the creation of an elixir of life as a remedy that would cure all diseases and promote longevity, and the discovery of a universal solvent. But despite their passion, generosity, perseverance and acumen, the philosopher’s stone lay forever out of reach.
“The true alchemists do not change lead into gold; they change the world into words.“― William H. Gass, A Temple of Texts
Alchemists were the scientists of old. Unlike classical science which focuses on a mechanistic universe operating out there in linear time via cause and effect, alchemists saw that everything was intimately connected. They would say: “as above, so below; as within, so without.” Thus, while they also wanted to understand the cosmos, their process began within. Their exact way of seeing “the world” through the miracle of oneness evolved into quantum physics.
New physics asked a simple question: since space. time, energy and matter weren’t here before the Big Bang Beginning, where did they come from? They answered: they came from the absolute void; a place of paradox, where something is at the same time yin and yang, dark and light, dead and alive, good and evil!
So, WHY isn’t the Golden Age here yet?
BECAUSE, while alchemists know that Hebrew is a quantum language and work with it in their research, they are at a disadvantage since Hebrew is not their mother tongue. As for the rabbis, they are yet to explore the link between the mysteries of Alchemy, Physics, and the multidimensionality of Hebrew…
Mind: the final frontier. These are the voyages (“WHY ages”) I take via newly named S/Hebrew, as I explore the strange WORDS, and boldly hear and speak that which was never eXPRessed before.Golden XPR

This same realm of impossible possibilities, which is now at the heart of quantum physics, was always at the core of the Bible. It lives in the Garden of Eden as the infamous Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Biblical knowledge is sexual (“and Adam knew his wife”), and is paradoxical. It is a knowledge created male and female, light and dark, a live cat and a dead cat, when man and woman merge as energy. It is a little death, when the man is no longer “the man” and the woman, no longer “the woman.” As such, it goes beyond time, space and mind.
