Paracelsus Labs

Paracelsus Labs LOGO.jpg

Paracelsus Labs represents the pioneering alchemy research center operating on the Ethereum network.

The transmutation, evolution, and proliferation of the original 33 herbal humanoids are entirely manifested within the Open Sea.

Owners possess the ability to crossbreed, develop, and refine their creatures using ingredient tokens. The progression of character traits and properties relies on the combination of NFT ingredients burned by the owner.

This transformative process is referred to as incubation and can be executed an infinite number of times. However, caution must be exercised to avoid burning the homunculus, as this typically leads to its re-minting in a less rare form.

Only 300 essential ingredients are available for the reproduction of homunculi, resulting in a potential total of 333 creatures within this comprehensive bestiary.

Community members are encouraged to responsibly utilize ingredients to uphold a diversified rarity score.


2000: Basma Institute establishes a specialized department called Technosphere Experimental Research Activities (T.E.R.A.).

2001: Paracelsus Labs is formed as a division of T.E.R.A., focusing on digital alchemy.

2002: Paracelsus Labs gains independence and becomes an autonomous research center.

2003: The Philosophers' code program is initiated, leading to the creation of a plant-based homunculus as a simulation.

2004: The first living homunculus is successfully created.

2005: Paracelsus Labs undergoes confiscation by the Republic of Croatia, resulting in the forced termination of all programs.

2017: Vice Tomasović (Vice Guru) assumes the position of CEO at Basma Institute.

2018: Basma Institute goes public, with a mission focused on healing the nation.

2019: Paracelsus Labs is reactivated as a department within Basma Institute on the Ethereum network.

2020: Partial restoration of the Philosophers' code program is accomplished.

2022: Homunculi simulations are launched as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Currently, artificial intelligence is unable to generate emotions, which plays a vital role in the homunculus transmutation process capable of producing the Philosophers' code.


Knowledge regarding the plant origins of humanity has persisted for a considerable period. Ancient civilizations have inherited this truth through their myths and legends. These stories often use symbolic imagery to depict our evolution, such as a child emerging from a plant bud or seed. Within alchemical manuscripts, references can be found to Adam and Eve, the first human beings, being linked to the roots of the mandrake plant, which assumed human form upon emerging from the earth. Secret knowledge also speaks of homunculi, miniature human beings that alchemists could create through various means, including fertilizing a plant with their own seed or burying an egg filled with their own blood in the ground.

Across all cultures, there exists some version of the plant humanoid, often associated with the arrival of spring. Throughout the history of Western art, we encounter this motif as a recurring architectural ornamentation in both sacred and secular objects, taking on numerous variations. Frequently depicted as a human face composed of leaves, it represents a vegetative deity. This symbolism of rebirth and cyclical regeneration in nature emerged independently in different civilizations, serving as a potent symbol throughout history.
