The Work of Philippus Theophrastus Aureolus Bombast of Hohenheim aka Paracelsus
Note: Anyone reading Paracelsus in the attempt to understand alchemy will achieve very little without first understanding the spiritual writings of Paracelsus. People assume that because they cannot prove the existence of a fourth dimension, a spiritual realm that it does not exist. So, they place themselves and their intellect above it confusing science with absolute understanding and themselves as the masters of what they essentially do not understand.
In the times of Paracelsus the highest science and art was considered to be the art of healing. This was based on the concept that if the human being was made in the image of God and that all that was created was also God, then by understanding the workings of the human being and Nature a person came to know God and must know God in order to knowingly and successfully heal the ailing.
It was quite evident from what we read of it in those times that it was often an art practiced by people who were so completely inept in healing that it often did more harm than good. Paracelsus was keenly aware of this. He called these highly educated yet completely ignorant people, buffoons and fools, right to their faces, infuriating them. Then as now, these were people of high standing, wealth and influence. They made life very difficult for Paracelsus who, was doing nothing more that trying to teach matters as they actually were. For the most part, anyone who understands what Paracelsus wrote will see that his thinking is pure genius . . . simple but never simple minded. Paradoxically, it is by that simplicity that creation protects itself from being profaned and from those who do not deserve to know and understand it.
As we see even today, this attitude persists and people pay the price of the factually and spiritually ignorant who are often in positions of power.
Paracelsus was deeply spiritual and a devout Christian, albeit not a church going one. It is through spiritual understanding that a person rises to dominate Nature to be in complete harmony with it without destroying Her or anything in Her.

Excerpts From The Prophesies of The Prophet Daniel.
A Note to The Reader!
To start with it should be stated that this material in addition to authentic also provides and excellent Daniel bible study for the book of Daniel. Very few writers offer as much as Paracelsus in terms of clarity and honesty and depth. Paracelsus leaves no room for mistaking what he thinks. And furthermore he can back himself up quite well. Daniel himself encountered what Paracelsus encountered in his own life. Both were hated and praised at the same time and were put to trials for their righteous stance. With Paracelsus there is no sitting on the fence, especially when it comes to the book of Daniel. He is definitely on one side of it while those described by Daniel are on the other. All in all, Paracelsus shows that not much has changed in nearly 4000 plus years of history.
Few writers get to the point like Paracelsus – No political correctness here. To this day people still try to emulate this truly great man. Physicians try to copy his methods and remedies, but few if any succeed. But in addition to his extensive and comprehensive medical writings, he was one of the most prolific writers on matters of the spirit and Divinity. He wrote with clarity, inspiration and love for his faith and God. Never the hypocrite, as you can read below, he did not write to suit religion or the religious. His legacy and work lives and shines to this day remaining relevant especially in light of recent church and ongoing religious scandals within all Christian denominations which prove that his observations made nearly 500 years ago of these sects were correct then, and remain accurate to this day.
To an objective person Paracelsus is an illuminating read. His explanations are simple and his words are brief yet they inform the reader to what in hindsight should have been obvious. Paracelsus admits that interpreting The Prophesies of Daniel is not simple, yet he does a marvelous job of it.
“Paracelsus; beloved by the common man whom he served, scorned by the elite whom he exposed.”
Excerpt from Philosophia Mystica: The Prophesies of the Prophet Daniel by Paracelsus
This book was written by Theophrastus Paracelsus of Hohenheim (1493-1541), a Swiss Physician and Alchemist.
In the year 1618, it was first printed and published in Newstadt and available through Lucas Jennis -Bookseller , under the title “Philosophia Mystica.”
The basis for this English Translation was the 1943 W. Keiper-Berlin Edition. This Edition was written in the original Swiss-German dialect of Paracelsus.
The English Translation follows as closely as possible the 1943 Berlin-Edition, which in turn followed the 1618 Edition. This is the reason for the structure of the sentences, which seem at times long and peculiar yet very clear, to the point, and understandable.
This was done intentionally to maintain the authenticity of Paracelsus’ Original Writings and to preserve the content, without change. Therefore, the thought processes and logic have been left undisturbed so that the serious reader receives a greater understanding of Paracelsus’ knowledge and thereby being the beneficiary of this knowledge.
The Reader should keep in mind that Paracelsus wrote this over 400 years ago. It is amazing how accurate Paracelsus is, but even more amazing, how accurate the Bible is. That leads to the conclusion of how accurate it will be and, if we Human beings want to be part of this knowledge and of this understanding, then we have to make the effort and spend the time to learn.
The Bible states in Revelation Chapter I, vs. 3: Blessed is he that readeth and they that hear this prophecy and keep those things which are written therein; for the time is at hand.
