L. Bianchi 3. Paragranum (Aufzeichnungen zum 1. und 3. Abschnitt), W I, 8, p. 124: "Vii haben sich der alchimei geeuSert, sagen es mach silber und golt, so ist doch solches hie nit das fiirnemmen, sonder allein die bereitung zu tractirn, was tugent und kreft in der arznei sei, die kein leib hab. welcher sie weiter hierin veracht, der veracht, das er nicht verstat"; Paragranum (letzte Bearbeitung), W I, 8, p. 185: "da ist nun alchimia der euSer magen, der da bereit dem gstirn das sein. , pp. 196-97: "darumb do mag ich bilich in der alchimei hie so vii schreiben, auf das ir so wol erkennent und erfarent, was in ir sei und wie sie verstanden sol werden; nicht ein ergernus nemen in dem, das weder golt noch silber dir daraus werden wil, sonder daher betrachten, das da die arcanen erofnet werden und die verfiirung der apoteken erfunden werd, wie bei inen der gemein man beschissen und betrogen wird".

76 Thus the phenomena of the external world become the model on which to base an understanding of the more enigmatic phenomena that occur in man. Only he who knows the origin of thunder, wind and storm - Paracelsus writes in Paragranum - is able to explain colic and torsiones; only by knowing how lightning, hail and thunderbolts are generated can urine, gallstones, gravel and all the tartarous diseases be understood. 77 Everything regarding the microcosm is therefore learnt indirectly through its signs in the macrocosm.
