The search for the philosopher’s stone, that elusive substance said to be able to turn base metals into gold, has launched many odysseys. It has also, says author A.W. Sylvester, launched many religions. In his groundbreaking new book, The First Mythology (published by Trafford Publishing), Sylvester details how he unlocked the mystery of the philosopher’s stone and uncovered the hidden secrets of creation.

“I found the basis of the world’s religions and the process for making the philosopher’s stone,” says Sylvester. “In The First Mythology, the creation (Genesis) is explained. The alchemical process is explained and the connections to religion are given.”

For over 35 years Sylvester researched the existence of the philosopher’s stone. At times during his research, he often wondered aloud, “Is it all just wishful thinking?” But it was Sylvester’s unyielding faith that led him to continue his search.

“Something I believed had to be there, something was overlooked,” Sylvester recalls. “Now, it seems that the something had not been overlooked, instead it was hidden from the masses for many reasons. That something will astound you; will surprise you; yet, you will know it is truth.”

Sylvester’s provocative search results will inspire conversation. “Who would have thought that Genesis was really about the yearly cycle?” Sylvester exclaims, “and that the process of making the stone is really about the understanding of the creation, that the stone is about how nature can and does handle matter.”

With the release of The First Mythology, Sylvester hopes readers gain a better understanding of the power around them. “I want readers to take away that there is only one God, the God of Nature, and we can learn to use nature to perfect and use matter as a medicine to cure our ills. This is what the past alchemists did, including Jesus.”
