The fourth process of Conjunction consists of the achievement of a balance between the basics.

  Conjunction demands a steady and moderate heat to be applied to the basics obtained in the previous process.

  This process is aimed toward achieving a balance or reunification between the elements of Mercury, Sulphur and Salt.

  The Separation of the elements is not intended as an attempt to alienate them but rather to disperse them momentarily in order to clarify them. The work can proceed only with the reunification of the elements after their clarification.

  Conjunction functions as the process to bring together, after cleansing, the basic elements in an attempt to obtain the original, the First Matter in the semblance of its being prior to its accumulation of impurities.
