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.
… again from Guta-Sintram codex of 1154
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.
Below two links that may be useful:
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.
