The German Jesuit scholar named Kircher also wrote about this process. He explains how the seminal power of each mix is found concentrated in its salts and as soon as they are set in motion by heat, they rise and move as a vortex in the glass recipient. In this suspension, the released salts arrange themselves with the tendency to take the exact same form initially set by nature. They have the will to revert to what they used to be, to arrange themselves in the exact same order as if they were green, each salt particle returning to its first initial position. They arrange themselves in such a way that the first ones are the ones which used to form the root, then those of the trunk, and those which formed the leaves.

In this way, by returning to the original position, a perfect apparition of the plant as a whole is formed.
Processes for Returning the Dead to the Living
Guy de Brosse used to speak of a Polish man who was said to be capable of capturing the ghosts of plants inside empty vials. Each vial contained a separate plant, and this plant was visible as long as the container was exposed to heat. On the bottom of the vials one could have noticed the ash of each plant of which, after heating, the trunk with branches, leaves and flowers would arise depending on the type of plant contained.
In addition to plant matter, palingenesis was thought to also be applied to animals and humans. The ghost of a deceased person was believed to be produced in a glass container by using hair and nails from the dead body, the ash resulting from incineration, or pieces of bone and bits of the rotting body from the tomb. All these items were used in the same operations as in the case of plants.
Palingenesis remains a metaphysical and alchemical concept of being and recreation, and researchers still quest to discovery answers and solve the mysteries surrounding the legendary sacred relics.
