Close your eyes and let the mind expand. Let no fear of death or darkness arrest its course. Allow the mind to merge with Mind. Let it flow out upon the great curve of consciousness. Let it soar on the wings of the great bird of duration, up to the very Circle of Eternity.
— Hermes Trismegistus

Conveyor Magazine is currently seeking photographic work for Issue No. 6. In this issue, we delve into the subject of alchemy as a method of transmutation, an intricate system of codes and rituals, and a precursor to modern science.
Even at its origin two thousand years ago in Greco-Roman Egypt, the art of alchemy encompassed far more than the pursuit of chrysopoeia—to transform lead into gold. Across history, alchemists in every corner sought to enhance their understanding of and mastery over the natural and spiritual realms. Incorporating seemingly disparate realms of human knowledge, alchemy flourished as an investigation into the unity of ideas. In pursuit of the Philosopher’s Stone, alchemists both ancient and modern have sought to uncover the hidden connections which unify the intellectual, the spiritual, and the physical in an attempt to transform nature, master matter, and live forever.
