Making the inanimate live
The gulf between the animate and the inanimate is deep and assumed to be unbridgeable. It seems obvious that no amount of effort, no magic potion known to humankind, will make a stone behave like a living creature. But, what if there is a way to breathe life into the inanimate? To reach into the very essence of inanimate objects and unfetter their vital energies so that they spill forth as a life force? This is the quest that unites us, a motley band of seekers of ancient knowledge. We each have, in our own ways, explored the arcane and esoteric with open minds. From the very origins of alchemy, through the pervasive presence of the Kabbalah, to modern-day scientific discoveries. Our combined knowledge, experience, intuition, aesthetic sensibility and artistic vision brings us tantalisingly close to unlocking the secrets of how to infuse life into non-living things. Here we collect and record our ongoing observations to document the progress of our noble quest.
