The Three Kingdoms, the northern and southern dynasties, were in conflict. The scholasticism was very disappointed with the pursuit of celestial realm, but it was hoped that they would be able to enjoy themselves in the real life and become immortal. People remembered the "ancient training" of the gods and gods and their distorted associations, which created the idea of "living food and jade can grow". This stage, may be called the long - life winter jade stage.
According to the book, there was a book called the jade classics, which instructed people to eat jade and said, "the jade is like jade", but it was slow to take effect. The specific method is "water for the sake of rice wine and elm, or nine for the bait, or for powder." Take more than one year, enter the water not to touch, enter the fire not burning, the blade is not injured, the hundred poison does not commit.

However, at that time, pu yu came from the western region to read the country, quite rare, and the burial or the ancient to the world is very easy. Generally, people do not know the theory of ge hong, even when people have the idea of protecting cultural relics, how can they resist the lure of immortality? Ask three and a half century, so the southern dynasties not only jade manufacturing fall collapse, and accumulated more than three thousand years of countless beautiful ancient jades, those that ROM and to whom, all is the history of seclusion mountain forest, of no load transfer "youdao" to fill in the mortar between went to the spot.
