This episode starts off by summarizing prior shows, then focuses on many meanings of the Ouroboros symbol, one being: self-initiated regeneration.
It features a scholar who has studied historical Rosicrucian movements (but he doesn't mention AMORC) and he has matched alchemy, with hermeticism and Masonry, as have many others. Ancient Chinese studies and skills are tantalizingly illustrated but not intensively. One scholar and his wife wrote 27 books on them!
The alchemical "elixirs" came in many forms, and were disguised to mislead the unitiated. (As in trying to turn base metal into gold.) Also in this show are various teachings about using sex and sexual energies for spiritual transformations. Alchemy is discussed as an operating system for transmuting one's consciousness. In short, a rather controversy-provoking episode.
