: Curiosity and magnetic attraction
Topic:Alchemy of Fire
Alchemy of Fire“There are different ways of interpreting curiosity. Many people view it as a puerile and superficial behavior. A minority, on the other hand, believes that it is the spark that lights the mind, driving it towards new adventures. In actual fact they both exist. They originate from the different sensitivity of man and his ability to respond to the impulses of conscience.”

Curiosity and magnetic attraction

There are different ways of interpreting curiosity. Many people view it as a puerile and superficial behavior. A minority, on the other hand, believes that it is the spark that lights the mind, driving it towards new adventures.

In actual fact they both exist. They originate from the different sensitivity of man and his ability to respond to the impulses of conscience.

Conscience is the faculty to perceive sensations. It is a pole of attention linked both to the animal nature of man and to the subtle sphere, generating the binary phenomenon called physical identity and subtle identity (see article).

Physical identity is strictly linked to material sensations; curiosity is attracted by ideas that it admires and it turns into cult models. The more man’s mind evolves, though, the more his attention separates from the planes of (astral) emotiveness, feeling attracted by the subtle planes of conscience. The result is that thoughts are shaped on more and more refined models.

By elevating the quality of thoughts the physical mind is attracted by the nucleus called superior Ego, by the rule that says:the major simile tends to attract and to assimilate in itself the minor simile; (see article). The superior Ego is the pole of intelligence (Hermeticists call it Pure Reason) through which the superior conscience – also called super-consciousness – expresses itself.


The tension created between the physical mind and the superior Ego is expressed as attraction. It is a magnetic force that, by attracting the individual’s attention, seems like simple curiosity, but in actual fact it is wish to know.

The attraction for truth and knowledge creates a curiosity that separates man from the exterior ideological and cultural models. The wish to know the inner universes drives man on the initiatory path and it ends up by modeling the perfect disciple of knowledge. Intellectual curiosity becomes therefore an extraordinary drive for progress.
