Robert Fludd was a distinguished English alchemical philosopher, light metaphysician and Kabbalist. In the 1620s he published a tract on wheat, the “Tractatus de Tritico”, in which he described a series of experiments in which he extracted the luminous quintessence, or celestial fire, from wheat. His words are spoken in both old Hebrew and English.
