Homage to Carl Gustav Jung

Alchemy is one of forgotten finds that Jung has brought to light from the darkness of our past.

The deep intultion and revelations, derived by the tradition of Hellenistic Gnosticism, led Jung to examine thoroughly thestudy of the hermetic and alchemic literature which had caused endless polemics.

It is mainly in A Psychological Approach to the Dogma of the Trinity (1942/1948) and in Answer to Job (1952) that Jung faced the problem of the relationship between the positive and negative pole, shadow and light and good and evil from a Christian point of view: the dualism and the necessary overcoming of dualism.

Here is the meaning of the 'Alchemy', a pen divided in two: two are the nibs, where symbolically thethought still lives, before the necessary transformation, which will make Jung say, as already anticipated by Alchemy, that we cannot speak of Good without the Evil, of Light without Darkness and of Above without Below; the substance of one is the substance of the other as the negation of the one is the negation of the other.

The Emerald Table, dated between 6th and 8th century A.D. was for the alchemists like the commandments by Moses and there was no alchemist, of practical orientation or mystical specualtivewho would not try to harmonise his discoveries with the solemn content of the following twelve theses:

"This true without lying, certain and most true.

That which is below is like that which is above and that which is above is like that which is below to do the miracles of one only thing.

And as all things have been and arose from one by the mediation of one: so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaption.

The Sun is its father, the moon its mother, the wind hath carried it in its belly, the earth is its nourse.

The father of all perfection in the whole world is here. Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth.

Alchemy Fountain Pen comes only as a desk set. The body in red resin has two opposite nibs to write in two different colours or in two different types of nibs. The filling system, with eyedropper, has two seperate demo reservoirs, one for each nib. The pen is magnetically suspended indide a display with two dragons forming a circle which represents the life cycle. A cone-shaped clear inkwell holds the dragons and the pen vertically. Trims are in silver and gold plating for the 1038 pieces edition, gold for the 238 pieces edition while diamonds complete the 38 pieces edition.

Symbology
The hermetic thought has an endless number of symbols. We have gathered in Alchemy Pen the most significant symbols of the Alchemic Opus:

Ouroboros: figure of a snake eating its own tail. With this imaginary symbol the pagan world wanted to represent the perpetual movement of the world: the unity of everything (the circle) which is distributed in the multiplicity of its cyclic transformations (the coils of the snake symbolize the lunar phases) returns in itself (the junction of the tail of the snake with its head), thus reconciling the apparent contradiction between and the unity and the multiplicity.

Red Color: Rubedo or final phase of the alchemic process or great work consisting in the philosophers' stone.

Cosmic diagrams: from the Sylva Philosophorum. They represent the macrocosm and the philosophers' stone with their relationships.

Androgynous: gold and silver. The pholosophers attribute the female character (the Moon) to the humid and cold matter and the male character to the hot and dry matter (the Sun).

Alembic: the inkwell. It represents the laboratory of alchemy and the necessary work to complete the Opus. Two are the possible ways: the dry or the humid way.

Separate thou the eart from the fire, the subtile from the gross sweetly with great indoustry.

It ascends from the earth to the heaven and again it descends to the eart and receives the force of things superior and inferior.

By this means you shall have glory of the whole world and thereby all abscurity shall fly from you.

Its force is aboe all force. For it vanquishes every subtile thing and penetrates every solid thing.

So was the world created.

From this are and do come admirable adaptations whereof the means is here in this.

Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world. That which I have said of the operation of the Sun is accomplished and ended."

Here are the threads forgotten by man, always kept alive by the Immortals, they take continuity and strength from the work of Jung, anticipator of the Man's needs to live the new Myth, needs which appear more and more evident in the intuitions and in the experiences of other searchers, both of theWest and the East. As Mahatma Gandhi already said, the choice of the man will not be anymore between violence and non violence, but between survival or, if the man does not become responsible of himself and of what surrounds him, non-survival.

Alchemy pen is the symbol of this essential passage that Man is called to accomplish.
