The blood in the human body, when it is healthy, is red; ranging from a light to bright red when properly oxygenated. When it is unhealthy, it becomes a darker red and can look like almost a black color with the consistency of jelly, which is a sign of sickness. Hippocrates had theorized, that illness was caused by an imbalance of the four humours: blood, phlegm, black bile and yellow bile.
Black is the color of materiality, evil, and ignorance. Black is darkness because it absorbs, conceals, creates confusion and chaos. It is associated with physical deformities and the concepts of evil and sin. Black also represents the angel of death, Satan and the planet of darkness and chaos, Saturn. This is why it is the color assigned to the Left Hand Path of magick and also death.
The same transformation occurs within our blood, that causes humans to go mad and to eventually die from the chaos within their blood and minds; and the mind I had already established above, is the seat of the soul. Hence, if you do not properly manage your blood alchemically by following the simple teachings of Jesus and are overly driven like that prideful angel known as Lucifer, it will literally transform your red blood into black bile, or what Shakespeare had called ‘infected jelly.’ The end result, is that you become easily mind controlled because your blood, being and aura have turned dark and chaotic like Satan, and in which you will most certainly end up in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur for eternity.
Each one of us has a certain amount of chemical energies and acids within our blood that is helpful to our health, such as phosphorus, sulfur and homocysteine. As I explained above, when we become overly prideful, angry, and hateful, the chemicals in our bodies become heated and change colors, such as the red garment of Lucifer. This change in colors to our blood and aura is because we do not properly manage these chemicals with positive thinking, healthy eating, and living by nature’s laws.
These same chemicals can morph into harmful acids and deadly gasses, such as phosphoric acid and sulfur dioxide when they are heated and or combined with other chemicals within our bodies that blacken the color of the reddest blood. So much so, that with the addition of a little water, even healthy blood is immediately changed into a fluid exactly resembling the black vomit.
The blood, already black and unhealthy, being thus impeded in its progress to its destination, the brain is deprived of its natural stimulus, or influence, from the arterial blood, and death is the consequence of its inanition, or of its want of stimulation. If the blood be stopped in its transit to any part of the nervous system, death of the part influenced by that nerve, or rather, coldness, numbness, insensibility, and loss of power, are the consequence.(2)
These alchemical facts are explained to us in Revelation 21:8; “But for the cowardly, unbelieving, sinners, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their part is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” A correlation in medical terms to Revelation 21:8 can be found in, “The Boston Medical and Surgical Journal, Volume 5;”
The dark color of the blood, which we observe in the beginning of pestilential fevers, is the effect of the poison on the vital fluid; but the black color, in the last stage of the disease, is produced by the loss of the saline ingredients, which I can prove are beyond all question the true cause of the red color of healthy blood. The mere fact that the blood has a dark color in all the fevers which arise from poison has been long known, but the causes of this dark color have been but ill understood.
An attempt to redden the dark color of blood in fever has been with some practitioners the chief object in the plan of cure; but ignorance of the real properties of the vital fluid has led to errors which have been even more fatal than those which now generally exist as the consequence of the doctrine of pure solidism. Acids redden the blue of vegetable colors; and these agents have been extensively used by a certain class of physicians to redden the blood in fever, on the supposition that they contain an excess of oxygen, which they would give over to the black blood, and thus redden its color. The fact is, however, that though acids redden the vegetable coloring matter, they completely destroy the red color of the blood; yet these arc the very agents that have been thrown in so unmercifully into an organ already burning from an excess of acid, on purpose, as they say, to redden and revivify the color of the dark blood.
