Love of life, i.e. zest for life, comprises buoyancy, motion, spontaneity, levity and a strong affinity for novelty…


Count of St. Germain, one of the most mysterious historical figures, is a good example for this kind of love.


Being an adventurer, diplomat, traveler, alchemist, and occultist, this sorcerer and creator of an immortality elixir and discoverer of the ‘philosopher's stone’, was considered to be the most unhackneyed of all those living in the age of Enlightenment. His contemporaries wrote about him that he ‘seems to be a man of great wealth, nevertheless he is content with rather little and lives a very modest and simple life. He probably knows all sciences. At the same time, he produces an impression of a fair-minded, equitable man deserving positive appraisals for all his spiritual virtues’…


In addition, he loved life so much, that he did not make haste to part with it… When once Cardinal de Rohan heard a story about the dinner at Pontius Pilate’s place, he, addressing St. Germain’s valet, asked if it were true. The answer followed like, ‘Oh, no, Monsignor, it happened before me. I have been serving Sir Count only for the last 400 years’…


There are also many representatives for this stage of Love... They are presenters and regulars of telecasts dedicated to the healthy lifestyle, healthy food, fitness… They are visitors to sports clubs and gyms...
