Could immortality really be achieved? If so, how? One man may know the answer.
Saint Germain is thought to have been born in the late 1600s (there are no official records), but some think he may have even been around during the same time as Jesus Christ.
There have been many accounts of his existence throughout history. He was acquainted with several well known historical figures including: Voltaire, Madame de Pompadour, Casanova, Catherine the Great, King Louis XV, and Anton Mesmer.
Saint Germain was known to be very talented in the art and pseudo-science known as alchemy. Allegedly he discovered how to create a Philosopher’s Stone (Harry Potter fan know what’s up). A Philosopher’s Stone can turn any metal into silver or gold, and could also grant the creator immortality. He claimed to be able to fuse diamonds together and to make pearls grow to enormous sizes.
Most recently, there was a claim in the 1970s by a Parisian man named Richard Chanfray that he was the famous count. Chanfray committed suicide in 1983. Or did he fake his death to throw us off?
Some hikers also met a mysterious man who had a striking resemblance to Saint Germain on a mountain in California. The man told them stories about Nero and Dante, as if he had known them.
Even if this isn’t true why would so many men would want to impersonate one man who is virtually unknown to history?
