So the idea that alchemy is about gold is wrong, and its all down to the public having the wrong idea of what alchemy means.

No one has an exact definition of what it means.

Quote from page above. Shows that alchemy is not about making gold, but something else
That 'something else' is usually described as the means of transforming physical matter into spiritual matter, the spiritual transformation of people.

The main reason its hidden is that the church suppressed knowledge for so long and anything it did not approve of would get you in trouble, maybe costing you your life, so it was hidden in symbols.
