Alchemical Processes 

Alchemists harnessed the forces of the physical world by recreating natural phenomena. Actions such as burning, boiling, or dissolving could affect the basic substance of plants and minerals. Alchemists duplicated, directed, switched on, and switched off these chemical reactions in their laboratories. 

The tools and methods used for science could dissolve the chemical bonds forged by nature, filter out impurities, and create new purified chemical compounds more useful to human needs. Such scientific operations involved complex and painstaking technical procedures. 

Eventually, the number of alchemical processes were gradually standardized to correspond to the twelve signs of the zodiac because celestial movements were accurate tools for measuring time. 


The Art of Alchemy is open at the Getty Research Institute through February 12, 2017. It’s one of three alchemy-themed shows on view this year.

Day 26 - Iron

In the fourth Period and the eight Group, iron is the most common metal found.

Iron is needed in all living things - animals use it to help transport oxygen from lungs to tissues, and plants use it in the production of chlorophyll.

Around 90% of metal currently refined is iron, with the majority of it used in the production of steel.

Iron beads from around 3200 BCE in Ancient Egypt were discovered to have been made from iron from a meteorite!

Blood is actually red because of iron! The chemical bonds between oxygen and iron reflect light in a way that makes it appear red.

Your body, which is bonding millions of molecules every second, depends on transformation. Breathing and digestion harness transformation. Food and air aren’t just shuffled about but, rather, undergo the exact chemical bonding needed to keep you alive. The sugar extracted from an orange travels to the brain and fuels a thought. The emergent property in this case is the newness of the thought; no molecules in the history of the universe ever combined to produce that exact thought.
—  Deepak Chopra

6/100 days of productivity

14.10.16 revising for my biology test with a mindmap ft. new mildliners I got in Japan :)

Today: revise my complete notes on biology, do some biology practice questions, study ahead on chemical bonding, do some geography notes and watch a movie with my family tonight!

Escapism? No, I’m not familiar with that term. But here are some not too angsty fics I’ve enjoyed recently, for anyone who could use such a thing today.

The beast not found in verse by coloredink  10K teen and up Beauty and the Beast AU.

Bright Heart by @ancientreader  6K explicit Minotaur AU

Through a Glass by Mildredandbobbin 2k mature  Did you know the bathroom door was semi-transparent?

Untested Waters by nondeducible  9k explicit  John decides to get fit. Like, really fit. 

Drawstring by @may-shepard  7.5k explicit. John likes Sherlock’s PJs

Onomatopeia by @aquabelacqua  7k mature. It’s funny how people respond to different words…

Telling the Bees by @anyawen  6k general  Ok, so it’s a little angsty, but it has a happy ending and it’s 29 chapters  of exquisite little 221bs. SO worth a read.

Chemical Bonds by @weeesi 5k mature  “We should have sex.”


These are the result of my very quick glance through my bookmarks and my recent history.

You’re it!  I tag you to make a list of fics that will make people smile on an otherwise stressful day.

and anyone else who has some ideas! Tag me when you post - I want to see your lists!

لماذا يقل الحب بعد الزواج وفي العلاقات طويلة الأمد ؟
الإجابة: الدوبامين

من المعروف إزدياد نسبة هرمون الدوبامين (dopamine) أو (pleasure chemical) في مراحل الحب الأولى من الانجذاب العاطفي٬ بينما أكدت دراسة بجامعة كاليفورنيا في سان فرانسيسكو (UCSF) أن الأمر مختلفا مع الأزواج وممن تربطهم علاقات ناجحة طويلة الأمد٬ حيث تبين نقص الدوبامين في أجسادهم٬ وإزدياد هرمون أخر يسمى الأوكسيتوسين (oxytocin) أو (bonding chemical). يعني ببساطة: إن كيمياء الحب (بأشواقه ولوعته) مختلفة عن كيمياء الزواج (العلاقات المستمرة طويلة الأمد).

هذا الكلام أهم مما نتخيل٬ فنظرة البعض للزواج خاطئة من الأساس٬ البعض يبني فكرة الزواج على الانجذاب العاطفي فقط على اعتبار أنه الحب،٬ وتكون الصدمة حين يتزوج أحدهم وفي ذهنه هذه الفكرة الخاطئة، حينها سيكون لسان حاله “يا ريتي ماتجوزت"٬ بل وسينعت كل من سولت له نفسه على الزواج بالجنون وسينصحه بالعدول عن رأيه٬ لجهل منه بمفهوم الحب و مراحله.

ما هو الحب إذا !؟ وما هي مراحله ؟

لو تأملنا أي علاقة مثالية، سنجد انها تمر بثلاثة مراحل:

المرحلة الأولى: الانبهار (Infatuation):
_______________________________
وهي مرحلة الدوبامين.
في هذه المرحلة تكون القصة في بدايتها. ترى الشخص الذي تحبه وكأنه (كامل) ولا نقص فيه٬ ظريف وخفيف الظل وتكون سعيداً وأنت معه٬ تشعر انه مختلف عن كل من قابلتهم في حياتك.
هذه المرحلة هي التي أنتجت كل قصائد الحب والأغاني في التاريخ الإنساني٬ وهي المرحلة الوحيدة التي تركز عليها وسائل الإعلام والدراما الرومانسية.

ولكن … ”“”“”“احذر كل الحذر، من قرار الارتباط في هذه المرحلة”“”“

المرحلة الثانية: الاكتشاف (Exploration)
__________________________________
هي مرحلة تعرف كل من الطرفين على الآخر مع مرور الوقت.
الوقت هو الضمان االأهم في نجاح أي علاقة٬ فهو كفيل بأن يكشف عيوب الشخص الذي تحبه٬ و إظهار حقيقة أنه ليس كاملا كما كنت تظن.

هل هذا طبيعي؟ الإجابة: طبيعي تماما.

”“”“وحين تجد أن هذا يحدث في علاقتك الجادة فاعلم أنك تسير في الطريق الصحيح”“”“٬

لأن في هذه المرحلة تختفي الصورة المزيفة التي كنت تراها في مرحلة الإنبهار وسترى الشخص على طبيعته.

”“”“في هذا الوقت يمكنك أن تقرر”“”“”.

المرحلة الثالثة: مرحلة التعايش والعشرة (Commitment and companionship)
___________________________________________________________________
وهي مرحلة الأوكسيتوسين
في هذه المرحلة يصل الطرفان إلى معرفة كاملة بعيوب بعضهم٬ وتكون عندهم القدرة على معايشتها والتكيف معها.

و هنا تأتي المقوله الشهيرة للفيلسوف الأمريكي سام كين (Sam Keen):
We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly

هذه المرحلة هي “”“أصعب مرحلة في العلاقات”“” لأنها تتضمن المجال لحل الخلافات التي تنشب – حتما – بينكما٬ وكيفية تعامل كل منكما مع عيوب الآخر.

تجاوز هذه المرحلة ، تعني “”“"أقصى درجات الحب”“” التي من الممكن أن تصل إليها العلاقة.

و أما القدرة على إستحداث “مرحلة الإنبهار” من حين لأخر في مرحله التعايش يضمن إستمرار العلاقة والذهاب بها بعيدا. فلا بأس في زيارة نفس الأماكن التي كنا فيها في بداية تعارفنا٬ كلمة رقيقة٬ لمسة حانية٬ هدية بسيطة. هذه هي العلاقة الأقرب للمثالية٬ وليست مرحلة الانبهار فقط كما توهمك أغلب الأفلام والدراما الرومنسية إن لم تكن كلها.

يقع في هذا الشرك ملايين من الناس٬ حين يجدون أن مشاعرهم قد تغيرت دون أن يفهموا السبب٬ وتكون النتيجة دمار علاقة رائعة٬ دون أن يعلموا أن هذا التغير جزء من العلاقة الطبيعية بل ودلاله على صحتها ونضجها.

الغزل والرومانسة والإنجذاب والسهر والحديث الطويل الممتع الذي لا يكل منه ولا يمل في “مرحلة الإنبهار” طبيعي، لأنك لا ترى عيوبا وهذا لا يعتبر حباً.

أما الحب الحقيقي فهو مرورك بجميع مراحل العلاقة بنجاح ٬ لأن هذا يعني أنك عرفت شخصا وأدركت عيوبه وظللت مصرا على الحياة معه رغم كل شيء.

Adenine (A) is one of four chemical bases in DNA, with the other three being cytosine ©, guanine (G), and thymine (T). Within the DNA molecule, adenine bases located on one strand form chemical bonds with thymine bases on the opposite strand. The sequence of four DNA bases encodes the cell’s genetic instructions. A form of adenine called adenosine triphosphate (ATP) serves as an energy storage molecule and is used to power many chemical reactions within the cell.

Rule of Thumb Pt. 3

Requested: yes

TW: abo, alpha dean, omega reader, breeding kink, knotting, angst

Summary: Omega Reader is staying with Dean and they have grown on each other. Things get a little hot.

A lot can happen in forty eight hours. Dean and Y/N formed a closeness that was chemical. They bonded over the slightest things, relaxing that the other wasn’t just an alpha or just an omega. 

In the warmth of Dean’s apartment, Y/N sipped leisurely on a beer while flipping through a box of records. Dean had been out late, and damn she wasn’t letting herself get jealous. Y/N heard the door unlock and turned slightly, watching Dean strut bow legged inside.  "Honey I’m home!” His smile spreading at the sight of the thick omega in his home. 

Both of them smiled fondly at each other. Y/N found it hard not to stare at his grease covered hands and face. His green eyes were darker than usual, his smile more meaningful than before. He could smell it. She probably wasn’t even aware of it yet, but Dean could smell the slick scent of omega and licked his lips. 

Y/N pulled herself out of the trance she was in, motioning to the Led Zeppelin assortment. “My two rule of thumbs: don’t trust alphas or anyone who listens to Led Zeppelin.” 

His eyebrows raised in amusement. “Come on sweetheart, they’re amazing.” 

She scoffed and put the record down, picking up the Back in Black album instead.  “The Stones are amazing, AC/DC are amazing.”  Turning, she was met with a strong chest. 

“So are you.” His voice was husky, full of gravel.  The action startled her, but she soon eased into his wide chest. Dean shook his head, “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have.” He took a step back, holding her at arms length. 

“No, it’s fine. I, really, I mean I know how I smell.” She grumbled shifting her legs. “And you smell heavenly.” 

Dean took a step forward, rubbing a thumb over the back of her hand. “Honey bee.” He purred kissing her forehead. There was a crack inside Y/N that signaled a burst of omega scent. "Omega.” He whimpered. 

She whined loudly, seeking out his chest, trying to hide away. “Alpha.” Her thoughts clouded over to how badly she wanted this. She wanted to stay with Dean and his family in this shitty town. Never before in her life had she felt so safe and so loved. 

Dean shook his head, trying to put space between them. “Your car’s fixed darlin’, I don’t want you feeling like you have to do this.”  

Y/N shook her head reaching out for him. “Don’t you want me?” The blissful feeling from earlier was gone, fear started to pump through her. Dean would be just like Alex. He didn’t care. He was just too much of a gentleman to say otherwise. 

She never game him the chance to respond, grabbed her purse and ran out the door of his apartment. How could she have been so stupid? An alpha like Dean wouldn’t  want someone like her. Her eyes darted around, trying to find some place that she would be safe. It seemed like going to get her car would be best, her heat would draw unwanted attention. 

Dean flew down his stairs, running for her. He grabbed her by the elbow as she turned the corner in the sidewalk. “Don’t you dare.” It was a growl. 

Y/N whined, a mess of hormones and emotions. “Alpha.”

He nodded pulling her back to the safety of his chest. “You can’t leave me yet. You can’t leave Lawrence yet. There’s so much left to see, okay not really, but please just wait.”

Dean stroked a thumb over her cheek. “Your heat is killing me. It’s taking everything in me not to bend you over right now and pump you full of my pups.” 

“Want that.” 

“Baby, just stay until your next heat, and if you still want me to, baby you’ll be knotted so good and full every alpha in the whole damn country will know you’re mine.” 

“Do you want me?” 

“Y/N i’ve been falling in love with you since you showed up in the shop.” 

That was just enough reassurance for her to cave into his chest. She rested a moment. “I’m out of suppressants and those help me.”

Dean nodded kissing her head. “I know little girl, I know. We’ll go to the pharmacy and pick some up and then see how you feel.”

They both left hoping for next month’s heat.

karate chopped a dude so hard i severed the chemical bonds holding his body together. electrons flowed into my hands and gave me lightning powers while he de-materialized.

Chemical Bonds

You said you wanted poetry
About your pretty face
I said I never would
‘til you broke my heart someday

And now the words are flowing
Off my fingers like the rain
I’m drawn back to the past again
To drown in each mistake

Babe were we really toxic
Like chemicals gone wrong
Or are my glasses tainted
Looking back when you’re still gone

I like to think we were something
And meeting you wasn’t just luck
Every night, I almost call you
But I’m scared you won’t pick up

I know that we hurt each other
And our passion dug our graves
But no one makes me feel like you
Can I say that I’m afraid

So baby, if you ever read this
Please know that I’m not gone
And someday if you come back
My arms will hold you strong
