Meaning of "Aur. Pot." in 777?

Postby mrspotatohead » Mon Jun 27, 2011 3:39 am

Hi,

Can anyone tell me what "Aur. Pot." is an abbreviation for? It appears in Column XLIV - Mineral Drugs for Kether in 777.

It seems like an abbreviation, but I (and Google) have no idea what for.

Thanks

Ok... :D

Ah! I've looked up Potable Gold. An interesting subject... thanks. :-)


Although, in lieu of the actual Potable Gold of the alchemists, whiskey is a fair substitute, just ask any little wee Irish man.

So an Irish man manages to catch and hold the gaze of a leprechaun.
The leprechaun realizing he has been bested consents to give the Irish man his three wishes.
The first thing the man wishes for is a bottle of whiskey that never goes dry!
*poof* the man takes the bottle drains it in one long chug and then watches with great joy as bottle magically replenishes itself!
But now he is vexed, unsure of how to spend his last two wishes. He glaces repeatedly at the bottle of infinite whiskey unsure of what to ask for when he is suddenly struck by a brilliant idea.
"I've got it," he says! "For me last two wishes, I'll have two more of those," pointing at the bottle!

Love and Will
"I remember seeing Atlas looking at a world whose hoops and rings had been broken by Copernicus, where Tycho Brahe placed his back beneath the globe, and a shouting Ptolemy tried to support the round lump, to stop it from falling into the void. In the mean time Copernicus was breaking many crystal spheres that were placed around the globe and was stamping out the little lights that flickered in the crystal jars." (de Hooghe, Hieroglyphica, Amsterdam, 1744)

Well, being that I've just found out that "aurei" means "golden", I reckon you're right :)

thanks for the insight, I've never heard of potable gold, looks interesting!

Mmm. Potted gold. That must be like potted meat, but goldier. Probably good to spread on your silver dollar crackers for a midnight snack.
