Alchemists were , up to about the 18th century,what scientists are now. Isaac Newton was one , as were Copernicus and Keppler.The basic idea was the production of the Philospher’s stone , which would give the alchemist infinite power.There was an Italian , in about 1920 , called Fulcanelli who claimed to have done this, but he disappeared.
There is much history here , not only European but also Arabic and Chinese alchemy.I could go on for about 1000 pages , but I’ll leave that to you!
