Alchemy focused on the harmony of elements, and John Dee was strongly influenced by the work of Paraclesus, a late 15th, early 16th century physician, occultist, and alchemist.

In addition, Western alchemy, the branch Dee would have practiced, identified the four basic elements of earth, fire, wind, and water. (9. [p. 331])

"Knowledge is convertible into power, and axioms into rules of utility and duty. But knowledge itself is not Power. Wisdom is Power; and her Prime Minister is JUSTICE, which is the perfected law of TRUTH. The purpose, therefore, of Education and Science is to make a man wise.
