According to Paracelsus, "the sumum of theological and philosophical truths is contained in the religion of the two lights, the light of grace and the light of nature". We have wanted to follow the lessons of this Renaissance genius, and to order the principles, the grace or mystic and the nature of chemistry.

"If some one were to water with such a wine the earth of a tomb, the dead would find his soul and his body would be revivified" (Umar ibn al-Farid, Al-Khamriya or Wine Ode)

"Come and see: When righteous are found in the world, blessings are attracted for the worlds, as it is written: And I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shall be a blessing . ( Genesis 12, 2) Why and thou shall be a blessing ? This alludes to the fact that, thanks to his merit, will be blessed the worlds above and below, as it is written: And in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed . ( Genesis 12, 3), that is, the worlds of below. And I will bless them that bless thee. ( id. ), that is, the worlds above." (Zohar I, 87b)

"The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God". (Luke 1, 35)

"If this birth really happens, no creature can obstruct it, everything points to God and this birth. In the ray we find an analogy. Anything on which it falls, be it tree, animal or man, turns toward itself for the force's touch. [.] Thus, all who experience this birth return quickly to this birth with all that there is within them, though it be earthly. Beyond that, even including what was formerly an obstacle that is now nothing but a help. Your face is fully turned towards this birth, be what it may that you see and hear, that you receive nothing more than this in all things" (Maister Eckhart in a Treasury of Wisdom by W. Perry)
