Two ravens, Thesis and Antithesis, perch on an Alchemical egg, its incubation tempering Synthesis. The shell is covered in hairline cracks as this unified third outgrows its vessel. The ravens have urged open a large crack, revealing molten gold within, still in the process of change. With their beaks, they pull at this new growth of transformation transforming.
Seemingly irreconcilable opposites may not be irreconcilable. Any oppositions, fire and water, man and woman, thesis and anti-thesis can be made into a unified third. It is only a lack of will and a disbelief in the possibility that keeps opposites, opposite. Only we keep our universe in twain, holding life and death, material and spiritual worlds separate. In each of us the two could merge. All it takes, is the right proportions, the right vessel and enough faith that the two can be unified.
