I have always been interested in the history of mankind and in this I came across alchemy. And for a long time I have defined life more generously than I learned in school. Here, too, I have found an ally in alchemy. What I like about alchemy is its fundamental respect for nature and a strong relationship with the soul. The soul in all things.

This further increased my interest and also strengthened my back. In many hours of self-study I devised my own method of alchemy.
