Paracelsus — the Most Wondrous Intellect of his Age

You can read about it here.


PARACELSUS’ real name was Phillippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus Von Hohenheim. He reintroduced Gnomes (Earth), Sylphs (Air) , Salamanders (Fire) Nymphs (Water) in the 16th Century, classifying them as elementals who were reluctant to interact with humans.

“I am Theophrastus, and greater than those to whom you liken me; I am Theophrastus, and in addition I am monarcha medicorum (Monarch and Prince of Physicians) and I can prove to you what you cannot prove…I need not don a coat of mail or a buckler against you, for you are not learned or experienced enough to refute even a word of mine…As for you, you can defend your kingdom with belly-crawling and flattery. How long do you think this will last?…Let me tell you this: every little hair on my neck knows more than you and all your scribes, and my shoe buckles are more learned than your Galen and Avicenna, and my beard has more experience than all your high colleges”.

In one of his books, Liber de Nymphis he describes “The creatures that are outside the cognizance of the light of nature, how they are to be understood, what marvellous works God has created” (sounds a lot like Ickes reptilian spin)

A couple of Paracelsus quotes.

“Thoughts create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy, from which new arts flow”.

“Man is a microcosm, or a little world, because he is an extract from all the stars and planets of the whole firmament, from the earth and the elements; and so he is their quintessence”
