Philosopher's Stone [DeVore]

An imaginary substance through the means of which the ancient alchemists sought to transmit baser metals into gold. Probably an early concept of a catalytic agent. Used in occult terminology to indicate the power by which all life evolvcs and through which all minds and souls realize a mutual kinship. It signified the highest aspirations and the purest ideologies of altruism.
