Click here to read a preview of ORMUS: Modern Day Alchemy


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 enlightening effects.

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.
