TITLE: HOLDING ONE’S CENTER IN THE MIDST OF TRANSFORMATION
(From Aandar’s Secrets of Alchemy): . . .”A bowl which shines so smoothly and brightly it appears as a mirror. It is platinum, a metal that hides in minute amounts in gold, for the purpose of anchoring it in these lower realms. For gold is a potent fire, that otherwise might burn that which it desires to enliven, were it not for platinum’s protection. And so, to soften gold’s fearful dragon, this barely discernible touch of pure cold, given by platinum, soothes gold’s fierceness, and creates for it a womb wherein it may more fully incubate its wonders.
“It is for this reason the sages have said that a tiny grain of blue ice lies, unmelted, at the center of the Sun.”
