If you look at it, we're all alchemist in one fashion of another. Even though we magically can't turn lead into gold or gasses into fire with a snap of our fingers... we transmute basic things everyday (well, according to my knowledge of alchemy).
Still don't get it? Our basic milk for example. You add chocolate into it and it 'transmutes' into chocolate milk. Flower and yeast transmutes into bread. Its basic chemistry that could be considered 'alchemy'.
Or maybe I'm just thinking weird things XD Either way, there's basic chemisty that affects all of us... espcially in the kitchen.
After all, Chemistry was born from Alchemy.
everybody move your feet and feel united. yeah.
