What is Alchemy | Where Did It Come From | How Did It Get Here

Where did Alchemy come from

Early alchemists Zosimus and Isis said alchemical knowledge came from fallen angels sexually attracted to human women

How did Alchemy get here

Why did you leave lofty, holy Heaven to sleep with women, to defile yourselves with the daughters of men and take them as your wives…?’”  After God’s rhetorical admonition against his lustful yet loving angels He said to Enoch, “As for the Watcher who sent you to intercede for them, tell them: ‘You were in Heaven but the mysteries were not revealed to you.  You knew worthless ones, and in the hardness of your hearts you revealed these to women, and through these secrets women and men work much evil [on] earth.’  Say to them, ‘You have no peace.’”
