As a chemical or solvent that destroys or burns, acid reveals the way natural elements or your environment is affecting you. Suggesting a type of alchemy or transformation, acid does not make something disappear, it only ‘reduces’ it to its base or organic elements. Acid demonstrates how painful feelings may be festering on the surface and threaten to break through 'skin' or surface awareness. Through the transformation, you will discover the basics of what is really important to you. See Burning.
