As we all know, As Above So Below is a "Very Scary Movie" to me or to you guys. But there's a things that we know or don't know if that is real or not ?

By the way here's the trailer...

So let's get started.

The Catacombs of Paris

The Catacombs of Paris or Catacombes de Paris are underground ossuaries in Paris, France. Located south of the former city gate (the "Barrière d’Enfer" at today's Place Denfert-Rochereau), the ossuaries hold the remains of about six million people and fill a renovated section of caverns and tunnels that are the remains of historical stone mines, giving it its reputation as "The World's Largest Grave".

There's a mine and a cemetery! So creepy and scary.

"The World's Largest Grave". Such a huge place! Take a look at this map.

The Philosopher's stone

This not like in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone.

The philosopher's stone or stone of the philosophers (Latin: lapis philosophorum) is a legendary substance, allegedly capable of turning inexpensive metals into gold. It was sometimes believed to be an elixir of life, useful for rejuvenation and possibly for achieving immortality. The philosophers' stone was the central symbol of the mystical terminology of alchemy, symbolizing perfection at its finest, enlightenment, and heavenly bliss.

This is the Alchemical symbol of the creation of the philosopher's stone.

This symbol reminds me of a Harry Potter movie but that's not our topic.

But in the movie, i heard that Nicolas Flamel discovered the stone. Yes, he is! But the question is, is that real?

I researched about Nicolas Flamel, and it says that In the publisher's introduction Flamel's search for the Philosopher's Stone was described. According to that introduction, Flamel had made it his life's work to understand the text of a mysterious 21-page book he had purchased. The introduction claims that, around 1378, he travelled to Spain for assistance with translation. On the way back, he reported that he met a sage, who identified Flamel's book as being a copy of the original Book of Abramelin the Mage. With this knowledge, over the next few years, Flamel and his wife allegedly decoded enough of the book to successfully replicate its recipe for the Philosopher's Stone, producing first silver in 1382, and then gold.

So, philosopher's stone is kinda real.

Woah! My mind is blown now! :D So we can make expensive metals into gold or silver or we can heal somebody when they're hurt! Lol.

Curiosity kills


If you had the Philosopher's Stone, what will you do to it?
