Chemical reactions are commonplace and will rearrange the elements of molecules to form new compounds, but the elements themselves are thought to remain fixed outside of a nuclear reactor.

However, many experiments by eminent scientists suggest that this is not an immutable law of nature and that biological processes can somehow transmute one element to another.

  • Chickens living of land that contains no calcium have no difficulty in laying eggs
  • Trees grown in controlled conditions create mass that didn’t come from the soil
  • The increase in Calcium in an organism corresponds precisely to the loss in Sodium
  • Sealed containers of seeds weighed more during a full moon
  • A compost heap ends up with more Nitrogen than it started with
  • Bacteria transform dangerously radioactive elements to more stable isotopes

Jan Baptist von Helmont (1579–1644) grew a willow tree in a clay pot with 90 kg of dried soil and an iron cover having small holes. For 5 years, he watered the plant with filtered rainwater and found that the tree had gained 76 kg but the soil had only lost 57g.

“Water alone had, therefore, been sufficient to produce 76 kg of wood, bark and roots”

Henri Braconnot (1780–1855) repeated the experiments of Johann Christian Carl Schrader (1762–1826) by sprouting mustard and radish seeds in various substances and examining the chemical composition of the resulting plants. He concluded that considerable formation of the mineral components, especially potassium, had taken place.

Louis Nicolas Vauquelin (1763–1814) isolated a hen and feed it a pound of oats, which were analysed for lime (CaO). He found that five times more calcium was excreted in the faeces and eggs than was consumed. He observed, not only the increase of calcium but also a subsequent decrease of silicon, suggesting that silicon had been transformed to calcium somehow.

William Prout (1785–1850)

Prout studied chicken eggs in incubation and found that hatched chicks had more lime (calcium) in their bodies than originally present in the egg, and it was not contributed from the shell.

Rudolph Steiner (1861–1925) observed that as part of the organic processes in a compost heap:

“Under the influence of hydrogen, lime and potash are constantly being changed into nitrogenous matter, and finally into actual nitrogen

Rudolf Hauschka (1891–1969)

An Austrian chemist, Hauschka during the years 1934–1940, in sealed glass containers, weighed cress seeds, and found an increase in weight of 0.54% during the full moon, and a decrease of 0.58% during the new moon.

Correntin Louis Kervran (1901–1983) performed experiments, which showed that transmutations of chemical elements do indeed occur in living organisms, starting by investigating fatal accidents from carbon monoxide poisoning when none was detectable in the air.

Next he analysed why Sahara oilfield workers excreted a daily average of 320 mg more calcium than they ingested without decalcification occurring.

Kervran pointed out that the ground in Brittany contained no calcium; however, every day a hen would lay a perfectly normal egg, with a perfectly normal shell containing calcium. The hens eagerly pecked mica from the soil, and mica contains potassium. It appears that the hens may transmute some of the potassium into calcium.

Jean-Paul Biberian is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science and author of Fusion in All Its Forms: Cold Fusion, ITER, Alchemy, Biological Transmutations and has performed experiments that support the findings of Kervran and others.

Vladimir Vysotskii of Kiev university performed hundreds of experiments on radioactive isotopes from the nuclear fallout of the Chernobyl reactor and found that certain bacteria could reliably transform unstable isotopes into stable isotopes of the same element and to transform one element into another that was adjacent in the periodic table.

Vysotskii does not consider this anything unusual but dislikes the term ‘biological transmutation’ saying that these are just regular nuclear reactions.

The proposed mechanism is that the growing edge of the bacterial culture will be uneven and form small resonant focuses of electromagnetic energy in the microbial bio-field, allowing enough energy to build up over time to effect the required nuclear reaction.

Another factor in biological systems is the formation of ‘coherent correlated states’ (CCS) which create the “possibility of forming controlled giant energy fluctuations of a particle whose amplitude can be thousands and millions times greater than the average (thermal) energy of a particle” See: Fröhlich condensates

Elemental transmutation has a beneficial stabilising effect on life forms, tending to restore mineral balance required for optimal functioning. The process is seen in pure cultures of a single cell type but works better when multiple cell types cooperate together to achieve the transformation.

Syntrophic microbiological associations, including sets of different strains that are in a symbiotic state, are more effective. These microorganisms are not in the form of a simple mechanical mixture. They coexist in a syntrophic association in such a state of joint symbiosis, when, in fact, they form a single macro-organism (although with separate systems of internal metabolism). In its scope, every member and every physiological group of the community is maximally adapted to the joint life activity and is in a state of collective mutual assistance and mutual protection. This system has a high degree of adaptation to various variations and ‘aggressive’ manifestations of the external environment

The very phenomenon of the transformation of chemical elements and isotopes in biological systems is based, first of all, on the repeatedly verified condition of constancy of the elemental composition of microorganisms.” – Vysotskii

Transmutation occurs to such an extent that the balance of elements at the Earth’s surface has been altered to become more hospitable to life by .. life itself!

“In conclusion, we note that the biosphere is a nature forming and relief-forming factor in the evolution of the Earth as evidenced by the observation that it can be an isotope transforming factor that significantly changes the distribution and quantity of different elements and isotopes.” – Vysotskii

Ravikumar Kurup found that Lithium in the brains of schizophrenic patients was created by transmutation of magnesium.
The proposed mechanism is that interference patterns of electromagnetic waves in the hypothalamus form resonant standing waves (phonons) which enable focused energy transference to electrically charged proteins.
