The Triangular Book of St. Germain.

The Dragon lineage holds the secret to longevity and transcendence. St. Germain was an alchemist renown for his longevity and youthful appearance. Alchemy begins and ends in the quest for Eternal Life. It is a Spiritual technology of Rebirth using natural methods that in their effect transcend Nature by amplifying that which is Immortal within us. It does not exist in Nature but must be prepared by Art. This book differs from many alchemical texts in its language, being more of a Ritual Invocation than a recipe.

Missing element has been the cryptographic key to the cipher text. It is highly possible that other secrets remain “buried” in the text for those astute enough to “dive deeply” into this metaphysical database. Surely the surface text is just the tip of the alchemical iceberg. One might immediately suspect even the Latin title page itself, which contains the intention of the author that this wisdom is a great gift for the wisest. Even the French text itself may be riddled with undiscovered ciphers, for St. Germain is known to have encoded secrets in up to eight languages at once, mixing them together freely to further conceal their treasure. The cryptographic text could still potentially conceal a variety of ciphers that should be explored as possibilities: simple substitution ciphers, key ciphers, wheel ciphers, Hermetic and Kabbalistic ciphers, number codes, etc.

The unusual triangular shape of the book itself implies the Three Principles of Alchemy: Salt, Mercury and Sulphur (Body, Soul and Spirit). The triangle itself upright is a symbol of Fire; reversed of water; and interlaced of the union of opposites. The triangle form could also suggest a triple meaning for the contents of the book: Alchemy, Kabbalah and Hermeticism. It is a recipe not only for experiencing a symbol in one’s inner world but for manifesting it in Reality, for becoming a living embodiment. The triangle is a 2-dimensional representation of a pyramid, a virtual Resurrection machine. There are 20 triangular faces in an Icosahedron, eight in an Octahedron, four in a Tetahedron, etc. The triangle, or Tetrahedron is the geometric basis of all forms. Precious stones exhibit crystal structures. The structure of the diamond, face-centered cubic close pack, is related to the alchemical squaring of the circle. The Tetrahedron is the most basic shape to be found in the three dimensional Universe of volume. The Merkaba Star Tetrahedron is actually two Tetrahedrons interlocked to form a three-demensional Star of David. The configuration of the Star Tetrahedron is formed within the first eight cells of life and remains fixed at the base of the spine throughout one’s life. The Star Tetrahedron also models the energetic body of the human being, the blending of Heaven and Earth, Male and Female and was known in esoteric knowledge of Ancient Egypt as the ‘Merkaba’.
