In recent years, the search for the Philosopher's Stone of the alchemists has centered
on discoveries made by an Arizona rancher named David Hudson in the late 1970s.
While mining for gold on his land, he noticed some associated metallic minerals that
exhibited very unusual properties. Hudson spent several million dollars over the following
decade figuring out how to isolate and work with these strange materials. In 1989, he
was granted several foreign patents on these materials and methods for obtaining them.
During the early 1990s, He toured the United States giving lectures and workshops
about what he had found.
The strange substances have been named ORMES (Orbitally Rearranged
Monatomic Elements), although some researchers prefer the more general term of
ORMUS. ORMES are metallic microclusters in a non-metallic state consisting of one
or more atoms which Hudson felt were in a high-spin state that endows them with
unusual properties such as superconductivity, superfluidity, supercurrent (or Josephson
tunneling) and magnetic levitation.
ORMUS can be thought of as the natural non-metallic seed of the metals or what
the alchemists called their "First Matter." Because ORMES are a new form of matter
with different physical properties from normal elements, conventional chemistry equipment
and lab tests have proved of little value in detecting or explaining them.
Nonetheless, these special “m-state" elements are thought to be as much as 10,000 times
more abundant than their corresponding metallic counterparts. So far the list of metals
known to exist in this special state are cobalt, nickel, copper, ruthenium, rhodium,
palladium, silver, osmium, iridium, platinum, gold and mercury.
All these ORMUS materials are abundant in volcanic soil and seawater and can
also be found in biological systems. Some researchers have reported that ORMES seem
to enhance energy flow in the microtubules inside living cells and even work to repair
damaged DNA. ORMES have proven to be extremely beneficial to plants and animals,
and people who have taken ORMES report many healing, rejuvenating and spiritually
There is considerable evidence that ORMUS was known by metal craftsmen and
alchemists throughout history who referred to this grouping of metals as the "noble
metals." The monatomic "white powder of gold" is mentioned both in the Egyptian
Book of the Dead and the Old Testament Bible. Pharaoh Akhenaten is said to have
built a laboratory for the production of white powder of gold in the Sinai desert near a
mountain that was a source of the ore and other raw materials.
However, according to David Hudson, the Egyptians named the monatomic
material "white powder of gold" because they could not detect the other metals.
Hudson suggested that some modern methods might be similar to descriptions of the
production of manna or the "food of the gods" found in Egyptian texts and the Bible.
Over the years, many newer methods of ORMES collection have been discovered that
allow the general public to participate in an ancient tradition to which only high
priests, pharaohs and alchemical adepts were granted access in the past. The problem
has been that ORMUS collection techniques have been scattered in private researchers
journals and books or shared with colleagues in private discussions. To make matters
worse, the methodology varies greatly from simple to complex, from kitchen-friendly
work to sophisticated lab work.
Now, for the first time, practical knowledge of how to collect and concentrate
ORMUS material has been brought together in a single volume that organizes and
preserves these valuable teachings of modern alchemy.
My friend and colleague Chris Emmons is the perfect person to complete this
important work. Sharp-witted with a penetrating mind that stays focused on truth until
she finds it, Chris is the epitome of the alchemist dedicated to exposing the hidden
essences of substances.
Chris has not only organized accepted methods of ORMUS collection, but she has
put them in perspective to one another, grouped them according to their methodology,
and shown which methods are the most useful under differing circumstances. This
work is not only a breakthrough in the sharing of ORMUS knowledge but also a
powerful catalyst to new research and new horizons in understanding this mysterious
and miraculous substance.
