2: Emeriti Journal of Modern Alchemy

The Ancient Esteemed Royal Order of the Emeriti evolved from the original Emeriti Brotherhood, who initially lived a monastic life to hide their true identity and because it was easier to make money disguised as monks in those early years.  After leaving the Island of Thassos in 348 CE, they continued their quest for funds that would support pensions for future scholars.  Many of the advances in the arts, the sciences and the pseudo-sciences throughout the intervening centuries may be attributed to the pioneering work of the Emeriti Order.  An example of their ongoing work lives on in the Official Emeriti Journal of Modern Alchemy: (A publication of the Emeriti Press International, EPI)

The Great Work Continues 
By N. Dines

Gold from Straw 
"The Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale, “Rumpelstiltskin,” reveals an early alchemical phenomenon known at the time as “spinning straw into gold.”  The methods described in the children’s story are obscure, but the concept lives on in many cultures, such as the Hebrew version, “Utzli-Gutzli,” which outlines the story of making gold out of Matzo crumbs.  Modern Alchemists, especially Advanced Emeriti Alchemists have carefully studied these early German children’s stories for clues and have made significant progress employing the new found knowledge to the conversion of cedar sawdust into industrial grade diamonds through the application of heat and compression using specially designed chambers that are heated by energy derived from an array of Solar Scare Crows® at the BHI Applied Research Laboratories in Leverett."

The same BHI Alchemy Group has also successfully derived ethanol from Cedar sawdust using a special Leverett Strain® of Cellulosic bacteria and are now pressing forward with plans to turn sawdust into Gold.  The primary beneficiary of this work is the Emeriti Pension Enlargement Fund.

Will this vast resource be converted into gold, and thus secure the prime Emeriti objective of Pension Enlargement?  (See December issue).
