The dream of reaching immortality was almost universal, especially in Asia. In ancient time, supposedly there were two ways to realize this: the chemical process, we now label it as alchemy, and the natural process which was what we nowadays might call as a magical “green” way.

 The famous emperor Qin Shi-Huang/ Tan Thuy-hoang (3rd Century BCE), the one who had ordered the construction of the Great Wall at the cost of millions souls, followed a chemical process by administering every day to himself a very small dose of arsenic. After a few years, as a result, he really reached immortality. Not on earth but under the earth, in an immense tomb kept secret for twenty two centuries!

Regarding the magical green way, people believed in some place elsewhere it existed a specific one thousand year old peach tree which took one hundred years to produce a unique peach called Dao-bat-tu/The immortal peach.

Who eats it will become immortal. And legend has it. Once, many centuries ago, a man came to a royal court offering a pretended Immortal Peach to the king.

While the king has not yet looked at the precious fruit, one of his ministers had swiftly grasped the Immortal Peach and rapidly ate it. The king became furious and ordered to execute the minister.

Going in the knees he implores the king to have mercy:

Majesty! I am innocent. This man pretended his peach was an immortal peach; I just ate it and now my life is in trouble. So yours too, Majesty, had you eaten this peach. We should punish those who preach untrue believes to our society and reward those who dare risking their life for discovering the truth. The good king listened, nodded and laughed nicely.

Science walks forward on two feet, namely theory and experiment.

Sometimes it is one foot which is put forward first, sometimes the other, 

but continuous progress is only made by the use of both.
