Resurrecting the Dead: Fullmetal Alchemist's Powerful Message

Alchemy's First Law of Equivalent Exchange

Alchemy's First Law of Equivalent Exchange

The first law of alchemy states that humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return; to obtain something of equal value, something must be lost. 

However, there is no equivalent exchange in human lives, as illustrated by these characters:

The Elric brothers

  • Edward lost his legs
  • Alphonse was close to death

Izumi Curtis

  • She lost part of her organs while trying to resurrect her stillborn child

This shows the value of life is priceless. One can try and save a life by alchemy, only to realise nothing could ever be close to a life.

The Value of Pain and Sacrifice

The Value of Pain and Sacrifice

The law also implies that a lesson without pain is meaningless because no one can gain anything without sacrificing it.

In the character arc of Roy Mustang, we witness that he suffered and felt the pain.

Roy Mustang

He learned the painful lesson of the cost of power and the use of alchemy as a weapon that caused complete destruction and suffering during the Ishvalan Civil War and the pain of losing his best friend. 

He was motivated to overhaul the military system and rebuild the country after the incident, which is a sign of humanity in his character development while suffering great pain.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
