Walnut and alchemy



by Guglielmo Menegatti (original link here)

We are adding this appendix as  following the publishing of the article “Tesla and his golden eggs” we got many request from all over the world to give more information  concerning the use of Walnut in alchemy.

The most common question we received was that there are not alchemic books that openly speak about  walnut, his tree or  derived   products used as a main element for alchemic purpose, therefore they wanted to know from where the author has got the information cited in the document.

We will try to explain our reason but as a premise  we have to start with this statement “the wallnut, his fruit belong to a very high level of knowledge in alchemy”.

Unfortunatelly the usage and usefulness of Walnut in  alchemical applications, pharmacological, physical or chemical is not directly obtainable from some specific book,  but it can be only  deductible through the study of primordial symbolism, from which over time it  has been originated and evolved  the words and immages language,   which is now familiar to all  alchemy lovers.
We’ll start now with the identification of the basic symbol that has ancient origins and is widespread in all cultures of the world.
This basic symbol actually has no specific name for this reason we will call it simply: “alchemic flower”.


The Flower in his whole rapresent all the fundamental knowledge and it is divisible in two units, the top side  ( the right one  in the picture) is referred to the knowledge of the power  needed  to deal with  world, including precisely: alchemy, physics and all sciences in general; while the lower part (circle) is referred to the knowledge  needed  to deal with our body and our ego; in this appendix we will not talk about the lower part of the symbol or about other elements  that are part of it (an that  describe the origin of our race).

The image shown is part of the culture Paziric (or Pazyryc).

The  alchemic flower as a symbol contains mainly the  graphic combination of the male and female  flower of wallnut  tree.

In the image below you can see the assembled parts (left) and the original.



The assembly of the two flowers graphic immages  has not been obtained sole  from  logical deduction of the graphic symmetries but it is a precise feedback that  outcomed after  long  study on  prehistoric symbols and  their geographical and temporal evolution.
Below are two examples of its transformation:


in the below link it is possible to see   other examples of this stylistic variation:

Often, the symbol of the walnut tree male flower is mistakenly confused with the pine cone, but with the observation of some details it is easy to understand that it is not like that.
The  pine’s cone bracts have  irregular shape, not rhomboidal, and also does not have at its peak a tip while instead this  is a classical charachteristic of  male flower of Walnut.
A classic example of this misinterpretation  is the huge statue in the Vatican that scholars interpret as a pine cone.

In the image below: on the left the Vatican pinecone, in the center  the male  Walnut flower and at the right the classic hexagonal cone pines:


An other reason why the this interpretation is  easily refuted is the fact that  pine tree  is not  spread throughout the world, moreover many other archaeological finds show various stages of development in length of walnut  Flower  that cannot be possible  confused with other species of plants.

Here below images from all over the world and from different cultures where it is evident that pinecones are not involved.



Here below as comparison you can see some pictures showing the various stages of development of the walnut male flower.


If you still think that walnut tree or its fruit and in particular its male flowers are not used for  alchemical operations or other technology it may  be sufficient to look at the following pictures to change your mind.

In particular the Walnut male fruit seems to possess property of  improving  human intellectual capacity and in fact we find it almost always related to  elements that are in connection with head such as crowns, etc. drapes. and in the Buddhist religion it is laid on top of Buddah head. (ndr we wish to  remind the well note “doctrine of signature”  a theory developed by 16th century Renaissance physician Paracelsus, that said plants that resemble parts of the body had healthy benefits for that body part, and  walnut  in fact looks a lot like a human brain…)


Very interesting is  Dionysus  mythological story (aka God of  pine trees) that has been  identified by mistake  as Wine’s God, Dionysus was  known for  drinking something, but it’s easier that it was  drinking an infusion of walnut rather than wine.
The oldest representations of this God shown with great evidence that it wasn’t grapes but it was something that  we finally know.
In the image below you can compare the gems of walnut  male flowers with  fruits (which are not absolutely grapes)  in the  crown that surrounds  Dionysius head.


In the following picture you can see a  sculpture of this God that leads on top of the head a stylized flame and in the top of the stick that he is holding in  his hand there is   a  Walnut male flower. This is a special stick  known with the named Tirso and it is known  to belong to  Dionisio.


In the below relief   is told  perhaps the true story of an   Dionysius aged, that  is trying to  offer to the woman at left, some wine to get  in exchange something that shall help him to return young. The woman  is  holding  this “magic stuff” in her left hand.


We can see roughly the same scene showed in  “Guta-Sintram” code,  we can see Jesus, who is asking something to his mother,  but she,  with a  serious expression does not seem willing to give him it easly.


We can find many indirect reference to walnut tree in Egyptians Papyris and murals and in Mesopotamia’s culture,  Those references are recognizable if you consider the typical  characteristic of this tree leaves.
In fact walnut branch always have an odd number  of leaves for example five, seven or nine.


The Egyptians and the Sumerians in their documents used  to indicate  walnut tree  showed their leaves, the Egyptians have also used the symbol for “life” called “Isis cross” while the Sumerians have  used a symbol that is similar to our “Alchemical Flower”.


For example here below there  is an Egyptian  picture that show the  transformation of nuts in a drink. What is identify it as a walnut tree  are  the  two birds located on the base which together with the  tree are creating  the symbol of life.

You can see that  the transformation of nuts is  creating three types of drink, one that is  destinate for use of nobles people, one that is destinate to  the animals and the third one  for the normal  people. You can  understand those different productive characteristics  just  following  the flow of the liquid,   exiting from the jar hold from the fruit picker climbed on tree.


In the   Mesopotamia traditions as well as in Egypt, there are many examples of the usage of a walnut based drink.
In the Sumerian image below you can see a sick person that together with a “doctor” (practitioner ) goes to an expert to buy medicine.
From the symbol  placed over the jar  helded in the right hand by the pharmacist we can easy identify the origin of the medicine.


Here below an other picture where the walnut leaves are evident.


from the  Etruscan mirror that we show here below we can also assume that  the drink can  have aphrodisiac effect


The Walnut is very frequently associated with an unidentified bird but defined in some cultures as “Phoenix”, Phenix is immortal and reborn from its ashes.
The picture below is taken from the Indian text “Panchatantra” of the third century BC.

Concerning the myth of transformation of eggs in gold we report below a picture  that has been the source of our document (about Tesla), it is an ancient Egyptian  mural in the Mastaba of Ptah-hotep Saqqara (about 2400 BC).
In the scene we can see a person  that holds a bird while he is introducing a tube into its  stomach.
The tube is connected to a kind of oven from which are outcoming  eighter  vapors or ash  from  burning or boiling  male Walnut fruits.
In the background at the left top a pyramid made maybe  with the likely eggs (gold).


But the  connection  between  eggs – walnut  was confirmed by the analysis of the pictures showed in   the works of  female Catholic and alchemist visionary “Hildegard of Bingen”,  we show someone for demonstration purposes:

Someone has asked us to provide a recipe for immortality, this is obviously not our intention, but anyway we wish to give you our suggestion to do the following things:
Replace breakfast with a glass of olive leaf extract sweetened with honey and three nuts (30 grams unshelled)

Obviously you should counsel first with your doctor or herbalist.

There would be many other things to say about the walnut but we believe to have sufficiently answered to  what we have been requested by our readers friends via email, but we want to add one more little  information that will be useful to investigators and Alchemy lovers.
The male flower and probably the Walnut fruits  must be collected in the  exact maturity period and  only in this way they can be used for purposes that are planned.
As proof we recall that traditionally witches and those who manufacture the  Nocino liquor collect exclusively during the  St. John night (23 june), in our opinion, however,  it is not needed to respect that precise  date but it is important to  carefully choose a suitable state of maturation.

As a greeting and thanks for your attention to our work we will give you two beautiful images of the painter Vladimir Kush.
