Thus, while the alchemist’s gold might appear to be like natural gold, it will always lack the appropriate substantial form that would make it truly the same. The second argument proffered by Avicenna concerns the intrinsic properties of each metal. These properties, Avicenna argues, are unknown because they are inaccessible to the senses. The alchemists, he continues, cannot manipulate what they do not know and so are unable to transmute one metal into another. Without the proper knowledge of the properties that flow from the essence of any given species of metal, the alchemists cannot hope to transform it in any way.

This vision of the earth as a self-regulating, harmonious being, that takes into account a balance of its inorganic and organic components was popularized in J.
