My wealth let sons and brethren part; Some things they cannot share — My work well done, my noble heart, These are mine own to wear. A vast corpus is attributed to this great alchemical mind. Had I described the order of its development, ill-intentioned persons might have understood it and have used it for pernicious ends. Jabir was by no means the first, nor the last, of the Hermetic philosophers who endeavoured to protect the secrets of the art from the eyes of malignant and ignorant men. As recently as the time of the enigmatic Fulcanelli, the duty of the adept or initiate to ensure that the most sacred secrets of the art are not profaned has been clearly articulated. Nature does not open the door of the sanctuary indiscriminately to everyone … No one may aspire to possess the great secret, if he does not direct his life in accordance with the researches he has undertaken.
