OK SO THE CIVIL WAR WAS REALLY COMPLICATED THE ENGLISH CIVIL WAR BY THE WAY
but a few people still did stuff
ONE OF THE PEOPLE THAT DID STUFF WAS NAMED ROBERT BOYLE. HIS NEW NAME IS ROB.
and rob was a scientist. a chemist, actually.
HE WAS THE FIRST MODERN CHEMIST.
and he was from ireland from a really really big family
HIS FAMILY WAS ACTUALLY SUPPORTIVE OF HIS ACADEMIC ENDEAVOURS WOW THIS IS GREAT AND KINDA REFRESHING
he also was into fencing and dancing and stuff
AND HE MOVED TO SWITZERLAND.
he was also a christian
IN GENEVA HE THOUGHT THE WORLD WAS GOING TO END BECAUSE A CHRISTIAN
seems about right
HE WAS LEFT A LARGE ESTATE BY HIS FATHER. HE COULD PRETTY MUCH DO WHATEVER HE WANTED BECAUSE HE HAD MONEY NOW.
he decided he’d join some cool secret society people
THESE COOL PEOPLE WERE CALLED THE INVISIBLE COLLEGE
this grew to become the royal society of london
THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF LONDON SOUNDS REALLY PRESTIGIOUS BECAUSE IT WAS.
now robbie had some nice connections because obvious reasons
HIS CONNECTIONS ALLOWED HIM TO BUILD A LABORATORY IN LONDON. WHICH IS WHERE HE MOVED.
he was pretty cool and figured stuff out
HE ALSO FIGURED OUT ELEMENTS WHICH WAS REALLY IMPORTANT
and a lot of other stuff that you can read about on google and wikipedia because you should know how to use the internet genius
COLOUR, CRYSTALS, REFRACTION, AND HYDROSTATICS OH MY.
i use british spelling yolo
HE ALSO AN ALCHEMIST THING SORT OF****** (hey guys asterisks means there’s a note at the end on this kthnx)
alchemy is cool don’t hate
ALCHEMY WAS KIND OF ILLEGAL BUT HE STILL DID IT ANYWAY.
nice job robbie
ALSO IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT ALCHEMY IS GOOGLE IT BECAUSE I’M TOO LAZY TO EXPLAIN IT
he also played with air stuffs
AND HE LEARNED THAT A MOUSE WOULD FAINT FROM LACK OF OXYGEN
HE EVEN HAS A LAW NAMED AFTER HIM WHICH I CAN’T EVEN WIKIPEDIA HELP ME
“Boyle's law (sometimes referred to as the Boyle–Mariotte law) states that the absolute pressure and volume of a given mass of confined gas are inversely proportional, if the temperature remains unchanged within a closed system. Thus, it states that the product of pressure and volume is a constant for a given mass of confined gas as long as the temperature is constant. “
THAT’S PRETTY COOL. IT EVEN HAS A NICE LITTLE GRAPHIC GIFY
note totally stolen for wikipedia /because i’m a cheater./
ROBBIE ALSO USED A LARGE CHUNK OF HIS FORTUNE TO HAVE THE BIBLE TRANSLATED INTO LIKE 5 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES.
actually it was exactly five that’s cool
HE NEVER MARRIED, BUT HE DID LIVE WITH HIS SISTER.
in his last years he was writing lectures
THESE LECTURES FROM THE LAST PART OF HIS LIFE WERE CALLED THE “BOYLE LECTURES”
hey we got somethin in common we’re great at naming things yep
WOW THAT WAS REALLY SHORT.
HE WAS REALLY AWESOME.
Hey guys! Did you know you can be an alchemist AND A CHRISTIAN WOW THAT’S CRAZY
because robbie here was not relying on mysticism like most alchemists
he was a scientist who just so happened to be into alchemy
he just broke like 5 stereotypes at once there.
mysticism =/= science
science = good
mysticism = bad scary no
alchemy + science = ok
alchemy + mysticism = not ok
thank you everyone
if unsure, consult an alchemist
