Freddie Mercury
“My soul has painted like the wings of butterflies,
Fairy tales of yesterday will grow but never die,
I can fly, my friends...”
Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury
“Oh, I was not made for heaven. No, I don't want to go to heaven. Hell is much better. Think of all the interesting people you're going to meet down there!”
Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury
“What will I be doing in twenty years' time? I'll be dead, darling! Are you crazy?”
Freddie Mercury

“The gut is the seat of all feeling. Polluting the gut not only cripples your immune system, but also destroys your sense of empathy, the ability to identify with other humans. Bad bacteria in the gut creates neurological issues. Autism can be cured by detoxifying the bellies of young children. People who think that feelings come from the heart are wrong. The gut is where you feel the loss of a loved one first. It's where you feel pain and a heavy bulk of your emotions. It's the central base of your entire immune system. If your gut is loaded with negative bacteria, it affects your mind. Your heart is the seat of your conscience. If your mind is corrupted, it affects your conscience. The heart is the Sun. The gut is the Moon. The pineal gland is Neptune, and your brain and nervous system (5 senses) are Mercury. What affects the moon or sun affects the entire universe within. So, if you poison the gut, it affects your entire nervous system, your sense of reasoning, and your senses.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Hermes Trismegistus
“No eyes will raise to heaven. The pure will be thought insane and the impure will be honoured as wise. The madman will be believed brave, and the wicked esteemed as good.”
Hermes Trismegistus, Corpus Hermeticum

Patrick Harpur
“Know this: I, Mercurius, have here set down a full, true and infallible account of the Great Work. But I give you fair warning that unless you seek the true philosophical gold and not the gold of the vulgar, unless you heart is fixed with unbending intent on the true Stone of the Philosophers, unless you are steadfast in your quest, abiding by God’s laws in all faith and humility and eschewing all vanity, conceit, falsehood, intemperance, pride, lust and faint-heartedness, read no farther lest I prove fatal to you. For I am the watery venomous serpent who lies buried at the earth’s centre; I am the fiery dragon who flies through the air. I am the one thing necessary for the whole Opus. I am the spirit of metals, the fire which does not burn, the water which does not wet the hands. If you find the way to slay me you will find the philosophical mercury of the wise, even the White Stone beloved of the Philosophers. If you find the way to raise me up again, you will find the philosophical sulphur, that is, the Red Stone and Elixir of Life. Obey me and I will be your servant; free me and I will be your friend. Enslave me and I am a dangerous enemy; command me and I will make you mad; give me life and you will die.”
Patrick Harpur, Mercurius: The Marriage of Heaven and Earth

Earth stares at Mars.
Mars states at Jupiter.
Jupiter stares at Saturn.
Saturn stares at Uranus.
Uranus stares at Neptune.
Neptune stares at Moon.
Moon stares at me.
Me stares at Sun.”

“No soul- no matter how great or how small- can avoid pain. Sometimes the greater the destiny, the greater the amount of pain. Knowing that nothing lasts forever. That all things must come to pass.”
Dipa Sanatani, The Little Light

Jeanette Winterson
“De ce sa scap? De prezent? Da, de acest prim-plan care-mi ascunde ce se intampla in perspectiva. Daca am spirit sau suflet, spuneti-i cum vreti, nu e unul singur, ci multiplu. Nu se poate multumi cu limitarea, el vrea spatiu. Poate sa locuiasca in numeroase trupuri schimbatoare, intrate in putrefactie, din viitor sau din trecut. (...) Otravita sau nu, mercurul ma face sa gandesc astfel. Daca-i dati drumul, va tremura in clone pe toata podeaua, dar il puteti aduna la loc si nu se va vedea nicio sutura, nicio urma c-ar fi fost imprastiat. Aveti o singura viata sau nenumarate vieti, depinde ce va doriti.” (pag 183)”
Jeanette Winterson, Sexing the Cherry

Steven Magee
“The large amount of mercury at the observatory facility was one of the reasons why I wanted Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) to visit the facility and provide legal guidance. I attribute my mercury poisoning to be directly related to the observatory management preventing the arranged OSHA visit from taking place.”

Steven Magee
“The problem with worker contamination by mercury is that the workers may cross contaminate a wide variety of items, such as computers, furniture, offices, tools, workshops, cars, restrooms, their personal items, their own homes, their partner, and so on.”

Steven Magee
“There were numerous large glass bottles of mercury stored at high altitude astronomical facilities and it was used in the telescope mirror support systems. It seemed to be an uncontrolled substance that was accessible to anyone at the facility.”
Steven Magee

Steven Magee
“Reflecting on my time at the 2006 to 2008 observatory, I started to lose my voice in management meetings after extensively handling the rubber mercury mirror support system and the large glass jars of on-site stored mercury with my bare hands and no respiratory protection.”

Steven Magee
“I was attending the doctor from 2006 through to 2008 for strange skin sensations, tingling/pains/numbness in my head, face, hands and legs, fatigue, stress, gastrointestinal problems, breathing difficulties and chest tightness/pains when exercising while working at an astronomical observatory that had a large amount of mercury stored on site. In 2009 it had progressed to include heart issues, fatigue, weakness and dizziness and I suggested to my doctor that my symptoms matched Eosinophilia and may be Lyme disease encephalitis or multiple sclerosis. Many years later in 2018 I showed a positive response to mercury chelation therapy.”
Steven Magee

Steven Magee
“When I worked at Columbia University and Dartmouth College we would handle the rubber filled mercury mirror support system with bare hands and no respiratory protection. What was ironic was that we were visually inspecting it for leaks and that microscopic leaks could be entering our bodies through our bare skin and respiratory tracts. I had no industry recognized training in correctly handling mercury systems, dealing with unexpected spills, the health hazards and the correct storage protocols. When I reflect on the mercury filled rubber mirror support band, it was just one of the many incompetence's that astronomers were subjecting their unsuspecting staff to.”
Steven Magee

Steven Magee
“I had a mysterious prolonged UTI of unknown cause in 2007 that all medical UTI testing proved negative. A year later in 2008 my doctor was stating ‘He has a plethora of multi-system complaints with no specificity.’ I had been working at an astronomical facility that used a large amount of mercury and had been handling rubber filled mercury systems with no personal protective equipment, such as gloves and respirators. The Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO) where I worked provided no industry recognized training in the safe handling of mercury.”
