      Science Diction: The Origin Of The Word 'Atom' The British poet and alchemist Thomas Norton used the word "attoms" in his poem, The Ordinal of Alchemy. The library where I found the Thomas Norton “Ordinal of Alchemy” book is the Chemical Heritage Foundation in Philadelphia, located on Chestnut St. right across from Carpenter’s Hall in the historic district. They have an extensive collection of rare books on the history of chemistry including alchemy.

    Alchemy, as a body of secret knowledge, came to be a quest for the secrets of transmuting metals and discovering the Philosopher's Stone -- "the physical vehicle for the 'divine spark' necessary to the process of transmutation" (Alchemy 50) -- but it also "stimulated all kinds of scientific progress" as the first truly experimental science. Another highlight is the first piece published, The Ordinal of Alchemy by one Thomas Norton. While heavily steeped in alchemical terms, it provides a vast chest of information regarding the alchemical process, on what to do and what not do to when practicing with the Fire of the Alchemists.
