Escape

The opposite of escape is freedom.

Stone
Hidden in the rock there is all that negates the occult.
Rocks always reveal themselves.
"Nothing has been created as Ultima Materia - in its final state. Everything is at first created in its Prima Materia, its Original Stuff [...] for alchemy means: to carry to its end something that has not yet been completed."
"Decay is the beginning of all birth..." (Paracelsus. 1493 - 1541.)
And so, in the fixity of stone there is the absolute fluidity of a universe whose nature, as the Absolute, will not be absolutely fixed.
