The trajectory this mix was inspired by comes from the taoist enthusiasm
to renovate and preserve a more archaic belief system, which was also
built on the conception of immortality. Also the subject of juvenescence
through regressus ad uterum represents a leitmotif of taoism.
The importance of cinnabar manifests itself when put into fire it transforms

human body, essentially via sperm distillation, when hanging
head-down so that the essence of the semen could reach the "cinnabar fields".
They cower in the most arcane sequences of the brain and belly:
there the immortality embryo is prepared alchemically. To enter this secret
region, which contains a "room like a cave", one has to break in through
mystical meditation and enter a "chaotic" state of mind (houen), similar
to the primordial, "unconscious" state of the uncreated world.
