Alchemical Antonyms

Alchemical Antonyms Cover Hellenistic alchemy tended to emphasize the varied contraries inherent in the craft: hot/cold, moist/ dry, earth/air, fire/water. Antonymic structure was symbolically superimposed on matter: Maria Prophetissa distinguished metals as male and female as if they were human, and Zosimos distinguished Between the metals’ souls and bodies. The same antonymy, but with the focus on man himself, characterizes Gnostic dualism with its model of spiritual versus carnal man.
