glossary

(Latin) A term used by Paracelsus. Literally, ens is “army; host; mighty works (pl.);” and virtutis is “strength/power; courage/bravery; worth/manliness/virtue/character/excellence.” Virtutis is derived from Latin vir, “man.” So, we can translate this as "power entity."

Paracelsus stated that the ens virtutis must be extracted from the ens seminis, thus saying that all virtue and excellence is developed from the force within the sexual waters.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"In these studies of Kabbalah, we need to be practical; there are authors who write marvels, but when one looks at them, one realizes that they have not lived what they have written; they did not experience it in themselves, and that is why they are mistaken. I understand that one must write what one has directly experienced by oneself. I have proceeded in this way for my part."
