Havelock Ellis The introductory scene for this movie features the director and writer. baby! (That's me.) . make up your own minds as to what this stuff means. "Rubedo. where one meditates in every action with no-mind. For this and the next post I'm going to refrain from too much speculation and let you. Then the last part of this series. the viewers/readers. right where I left off at the end of the first part of this series: Nigredo. He acts as the zen-influenced Japanese might. The tarot cards seen further down are especially interesting. it is not the attainment of the goal that matters. incase you didn't know. The next time we see The Alchemist is when The Thief reaches his tower in the center of town. Alexander/Alejandro Jodorowsky playing the character of The Alchemist (which he will be called from now on). it is the things that are met along the way." ."In philosophy." will be all ViolatoR. or total awareness on the subject at hand. The Alchemist is in the process of ritualistically cleaning two women. The process involves makeup and hair removal which he does with very smooth and deliberate movements.
The Thief and The Prostitute with chimp/Pan have walked out of the desert into the town. They are all at the base of a tall red tower. The hook carries a small bag with a solar symbol (circle-dot. also the symbol for gold) which is filled with small pieces of gold. they are all staring upward as a large golden fish hook is lowered from the only opening in the tower. The Thief takes this oppertunity to ride the hook back up to the tower's port-hole to murder who ever is in the tower and take the rest of the gold. . Here they find the town's people gathered for a possibly Christian meal of fish. Someone takes the gold and places fruit on the hook as thanksgiving for the gold. and at the moment.
Once he knows it's thin and easily broken.Once he reaches the portal. he steps back then lunges forward through the veil into the arched room of The Alchemist. The Thief steps inside the circular opening to find a thin paper veil between the window and whatever lies inside. . He pierces the paper-hymen with his phallic-representing knife.
As a matter of fact.Readers might recognize this scene from various synchromystic videos. He is following the rope which is attached at one end to the large golden hook." The Thief progresses from red to violet which represents a vertical movement of the kundalini through the chakras. The arched roof of the room might also indicate rainbow symbolism. . like at Stonehenge). the soundtrack for this part of the movie has the song: "Rainbow Room. or maybe pi-suggestive chair which The Alchemist sits upon. and at the other end. dissaperes under the trilithon-shaped (two stones topped with a lintel. The room its self is painted with bands of the colors of the rainbow. and that The Thief has "gone over the rainbow" upon breaking through the veil.

To his left is a 2-humped camel making it a East-Asian camel as opposed to the Middle-Eastern variety. forms a golden arch/half circle. possibly representative of a sunrise where the sun. half over the horizen. between two goats and two pillars. To The Alchemist's right is a naked black woman covered in esoteric tattoos and silver jewlery. who will be known as The Written Woman from here on out. .The back wall of the arched room is a golden yellow color. There is a raised platform of 3 steps upon which sits The Alchemist.
The Written Woman lifts The Thiefs hair from the back of his neck to find a large tumor there. so The Alchemist movies. The Written Woman pulls out a blue-goo . but it is the ultimate fighting style once mastered. in his typical deliberate fashion. Once paralyzed and unconscious. while it can take 20 years or more to master Tai Chi. It's been said that it takes about two years to master any martial art's style. She slices it open as blue liquid leaks out. to face The Thief. The Alchemist disables The Theif by touching certain chakra points in a specific order.anyone care to translate? The Thief makes it known he plans to attack The Alchemist. The fight is decidedly one-sided as The Alchemist appears to be trained in Tai Chi.
Or. Whatever the thing she pulls out is. The tentacled thing that was in The Theif's neck may represent the pre-programmed behaviours that society sticks in all of our heads." Speaking of which. where a "squid" is a device which uses electrodes to record and play back memories. which brings us back to where we started when the death of a "Jeriko One" is the spark which ignites the end-of-world(-as-we-know-it) movie Strange Days. "The Power. . even the millenial Y2K movie Strange Days. and a lust for money. devotion to political and religious institutions. it reminds me of multiple "pod people" type movies where humans are infected by a parasite which controls their actions. perhaps. Total Recall's Arnold Schwarzenegger plays character "Jericho Cane" in millenial End of Days (same name of the protagonist in Dwane Johnson's movie script. so that a person can take a "memory vacation" similar to Total Recall's memory vacation business "Recall. Over-indulgance (in alcohol in his case).covered squid (?) from the tumor in the back of The Thief's neck and seals the wound with a touch." which his character writes in end-of-world movie Southland Tales).
The Alchemist then says to The Theif: "Do you want gold?" And The Theif replies: "Yes. Pelican flasks have two "arms" which feed back into the body of the flask. Taweret/Taueret. whereupon The Thief no longer feels like attacking The Alchemist.The Alchemist then awakens The Thief by activating his chakra points again. or sometimes clay). this is The Theif's re-birth." The hippo may represent the Egyptian goddess of childbirth. The room is shaped like a hexagram (heart chakra) with a circular area in the middle where the alchemical apperatus is located. The Alchemist and The Written Woman take The Thief to an octagonal fountain with a baby hippopotamus in it and give The Thief an extremely thorough bath/baptism." Next. Next we enter the Alchemical Room. though usually more complicated designs are left for the flask or retort (usually made of glass. There is also a pelican walking around the room to let you know that there's some serious alchemy going on in here! .

There is a dual-flame athanor/oven/furnace which may be based on a "pelican" design. and they represent the idea of a pelican feeding it's (dead) young with it's blood (to give them life). so.
. and this is what it represents: a "hermetically sealed" vessel of creation. The pelican also represents the stage of multiplication where the power of projection is multiplied (the ability of the Stone to turn base metals to gold). and this may represent the "reddening" stage in alchemy where the white material becomes red.The pelican pecking at it's white breast (to get pieces of fish that fell in there). Even the athanor/furnace is called the "House of the Chick" indicating the egg symbolism is fitting. looks like it's biting it's self to get drops of blood with which to feed it's young. The glass retort is cleary shaped as an egg.
because it is the physical body that furnishes the material for its development. including this quote here: "The mountain is a symbol for the athanor. children play with it in the streets. His excrement is collected in it and carried to the alchemical apperatus where it will under go the same change which The Thief will undergo. it is before everyone's eyes.

Dennis Willian Hauck says in his book that "even such answers as urine.. our work is nothing but steam and water." Here's a more concise version of the riddle: In speaking of the Philosopher's Stone.
