With all the geopolitical news going on lately, especially with the BREXIT and the attempted "coup" in Turkey - a coup like no other since it doesn't look ike anything one would learn in "coup school" (as Mr. Hoagland put it on his radio show last week) - one might think there has been nothing else going on, and while all my instincts want to continue to speculate about who or what may be behind it, there has been other noews that's worth bringing to your attention.

One of the stories that a great number of people have sent to me concerns a recent Russian press conference in which scientists allegedly have found a new method of transmuation:

Well, color me extremely skeptical here, for Russia has been coming out with all sorts of claims lately, and we'll get back to those in some future blogs, but here, for the moment, let's assume that this story and its claims are indeed true, and indulge in a bit of high octane speculation and a bit of dot-connecting. According to the information-starved article, Russian scientists are claiming the technology to engineer elemental transmutation by altering the nuclear structure of atoms directly, proton by proton. Here's the article in its entirety:

Even though it sounds like science fiction IT’S NOT! A couple of days ago Russian scientists successfully created a technology that can alter the protons of an atom and change the atom itself making one element from another.

This (possibly historical) discovery was made public after a couple of successful tests in which chemical elements were transmuted to become other elements. This concludes a dinasty of researches trying to turn “lead into gold”

The scientists are focused not on turning “lead into gold” but creating a certain element which can only be superficially created for the purpose of fueling spacecraft. However, this can be a revolution in almost every industry considering this technology can be tweaked to turn any element into any other. However, we’ll see what politics will make of this.

The reference to turning lead into gold is, of course, the old dream of exoteric (outer) alchemy, a process that esoteric (inner) alchemy always maintained had to be pursued by those of a "pure heart" or "mind", by those who had renounced the leaden dross of human vices into the gold of virtues. In any case, the reference and implication of the Russian claims are clear: if a means has been found to transmute elemts proton by proton, so to speak, then indeed one might be looking at a breathrough with huge implications of materials science, and for the financial system:

In this article the connection is made to the sweeping geopolitical changes occuring because of the BRICSA challenge to the western financial system, its markets rigging, and its current virtual monopoly on international financial clearing:

Barely a few weeks ago, a conference was held in Geneva, Switzerland, purposely to announce the discovery of a method to transmute any element into another element in the periodic table, and beyond.

This discovery was made possible by two Russian theoretical and experimental scientists who were trying to figure out how to fuel a spacecraft using any element found in space. Now, that’s a good scientific excuse, indeed.

The transmutation process does not involve nuclear reaction and heavy water. The economic consequence of the industrial scale of such a process cannot be projected at this point, they say.\

Note that connection to space; if such a technology is real, then one obvious potential use is precisely using raw materials encountered in space and "transmuting" them into sources of fuel. And, if that's possible (continuing our high octane speculation), then one might conceivably have a technology that would also be a nuclear proliferation nightmare. Imagine, for example, "transmuting" a base metal like tin into, say, plutonium 239, or ordinary tap water into water laced with high amounts of deuterium or, even worse, tritium. One would no longer need access to uranium fields for feedstock for conversion via neutron bombardment into plutonium.

But there's a catch: is this story genuine or not? The scientists in question are making an astonishing claim, for their transmutation efforts are focussed not on standard nuclear transmutation methods - fission and fusion - but something else entirely:

Vladislav Karabanov: “Today, here in Geneva, we are making public a discovery and a technology which without any exaggeration could be of historic significance.

The essence of this discovery and the technology boils down to the development of an industrial method for the transformation of chemical elements into other elements and their isotopes.

What we’ll have to show you today is the transmutation without nuclear reactors, without heavy water, or anything of the kind, to obtain a transmutation of elements. Our approach to transmutation of chemical elements is biochemical in nature.

It is still too early to fully grasp the economic and civilization significance of this technology. It would not be an exaggeration to say that this discovery is a veritable revolution that’s going to open a new chapter in our technological progress. Unlikely as it may sound, this is a fact.

And the claim here is not only about biological transmutations, but about applicability "on an industrial scale":

What is most important to bear in mind is that what we are talking about here is a ready-made industrial approach that will be capable of producing target products in industrial quantities in a matter of months. With respect to the economic aspects of this discovery I am going to brief you about that later . . .”

Moreover, this process, claim the Russians, is tied to the use of nuclear waste materials, and produces the following elements:

“The invention relates to the field of biotechnology and chemical transmutation. Radioactive feedstock containing radioactive chemical elements or isotopes, treated with an aqueous suspension of bacteria of the genus Thiobacillus, in the presence of variable valence elements. As the use of radioactive materials or ore radioactive waste nuclear fuel cycle. The process leads to obtaining polonium, radon, France, radium, actinium, thorium, protactinium, uranium, neptunium, americium, nickel, manganese, bromine, hafnium, ytterbium, mercury, gold, platinum, and their isotopes. The invention allows to obtain valuable radioactive elements, to carry out the inactivation of nuclear waste from the conversion of waste radioactive isotopes of elements into stable isotopes. 2 ZP f-ly, 18 ill., 5 tab., 9 pr.

The invention relates to chemical transmutation of radioactive isotopes and transformation, that is to artificially produce some chemical elements from other elements. In particular, the method allows to obtain rare and valuable elements: polonium, radon, francium, radium, and actinides – actinium, thorium, protactinium, uranium, neptunium, and various isotopes of these and other elements. (Emphasis added)

As the second article avers, is all this is genuine and can be made a commercially viable and industrial scaled technology, then it's a game changer:

There’s no doubt that there will be a creative explosion all over the planet when all of these technologies and equipments are made available on the market soon.

When there’s an oversupply of any element, naturally the price of that element will go down to the point of insignificance, the anathema to the scarcity based economic system that we are forced to swallow.

Beside its scientifically groundbreaking significance, the conference was also held in the headquarter of the global banking industry and political epicenter of the West, which should repel all notion of it being just a mere Russian propaganda, or

… that turning iron or lead into gold is not fringe science at all, but real and replicable, and the technology to do it is officially available to the world.

I cannot help but recall that story a few years back about the little bacterium that eats various things, and (to be indelicate) literally defecates minute amounts gold.(See

This also reminds me of those alchemical texts that indicate transmutation cannot occur unless it occurs in "putrefying dung", a statement indicating that at least some sort of biological process is involved.

The real zinger here is that the Russians have made this announcement in a very carefully chosen place and time: in Geneva, headquarters for CERN, and of course in Switzerland, a major epicenter of the West's financial system. And given the stated claims, the Russians are pointing out the potential proliferation problems it implies, so, contrary to the enthusiasm of the article, don't look for this technology to be sold to just anyone. The place and timing were shots across the bow of the West, and since they occurred prior to Mr. Ketchup Kerry's visit to Moscow, and the apparent agreement to coordinate American and Russian anti-terrorism efforts, and thus occurred also before the attempted "coup" against Sultan Erdogan, this announcement may indeed have sent geopolitical and financial shockwaves through the West. The implication of this "new alchemy" is that nuclear fuels can be made (or for that matter, unmade) from scratch, as it were, and that precious bullions themselves can be made, again, from "scratch" as it were.

And it's not the only thing the Russians have been talking about, or doing, as the rest of the world has been focussed on Ketchup Kerry and Sultan Erdogan, but for that, we'll have to wait until tomorrow...

See you on the flip side...

    Seems to me that if this is at all real, it’s not a new invention by some smart Russians, and more importantly it portends a very different biology, in fact something far more important than better methods of making rocket fuel or nozzles.

            No, Robert, the question is whether Fetzer has been stopped from making his claims.

            And the answer is still no.

            It’s about the level of the claims that no one was killed in the Boston Marathon bombing, not credible.

            If you have the FBI crime stats for Newton, Connecticut, and have confirmed that includes Sandy Hook, then link that information.

            No, overwhelming evidence shows that dozens of kids were killed in Sandy Hook. Kinda of like the back of JFK’s head flying off.

            As a platform monopoly this is setting a private, unaccountable precedent.
            The Boston was also theatre. It was a stage set for the premiere of Marshall Law. Some of the audience was lost in the red, white, and blue performance of spectacle. Because lost in all this is:
            Imagery from today’s terror wars enforces non-combatants’ role as pure spectators and as potential collateral damage, thus propelling the logic for increasing surveillance, militarization, lockdown, and violence.

          • Robert Barricklow on July 21, 2016 at 3:13 pm

            The spectacle is fully weaponized with the target on all sides is both civilian society and the humanity that animates it.

        it’s all relative is what i’m getting from you here. censorship is relative. “widely known” is relative.

        as to your claims of how much damage or casualties or whatever in any and all of these false flags, it gets harder and harder to say with each one.

        standard operating procedure has become destroy all evidence as quickly as possible.

        wanna see a video of charlie hebdo’s policeman NOT being shot at point blank range by an ak47 firing obvious blanks? you can if you search enough for mirrored vids of the original vids posted livestreamed from witness’ phones. but you won’t see it if you look at any mainstream corporate site for news or media. and you probably won’t be able to bring up mirrored vids from youtube of the original much longer.

        in the end it won’t matter anyway with the computer generated graphics they can insert into anything. similarly bad special effects were used and laughed at on youtube in the dallas shooting last week.

        now here’s your question. is the fact that these videos that clearly demonstrate mainstream corporate media lying about obvious false flags not readily available to all of us – is that fact censorship?

        when dh lawrence was shipbound en route to ussa he found out that lady chatterley’s lover was banned in ussa. he allegedly rejoiced reassured with the knowledge that the book would sell out because of the ban. just the same is that censorship?

    If this proves out, it could be interesting from a scarcity standpoint. Gold, silver, platinum, etc., were chosen as the base of a financial system because of their scarceness. Once a process is in-place to remove the scarceness attribute, that element can no longer function in that capacity.

    (Remember how aluminum had a run at being such a commodity? Titanic’s captain had an aluminum megaphone as a status symbol. Breakthroughs in processing technology caused a dramatic reduction in the cost of aluminum, short-circuiting it as a gold-substitute.)

    If all elements can be easily synthesized, something new will have to be inserted as the scarcity-object. This assumes that we will not have moved into a StarTrek-like society, where accumulating wealth is not the center of the universe…

      • goshawks on July 21, 2016 at 6:48 pm

        RB, Star Trek society has a military component (Star Fleet) because of Romulans, Cardassians, etc. To be purely pacifist is to ultimately be someone’s vassal planet (or worse: Borg). Most of the society has only distant connections to the military.

        What made Star Trek society possible was advanced technology like food synthesizers, transporters, etc. There was no need for centralization of power, or accumulating ‘things’ for survival. Mankind could devote itself in freedom to whatever interested each person – petty or sublime. Probably its closest analogue would be somewhere between democracy and socialism.

        That said, there were a few episodes concerning ‘deep state’ organizations that had to be ferreted-out and neutralized or reformed…

  11. Jon on July 19, 2016 at 11:02 pm

    Well, we do have the transmutations in cold fusion, the transmutations mentioned by Gerlach, and numerous Soviet advances in materials science, such as their discovery of how to make a fiberglass-like substance out of basalt, which is cheaper, safer, and far more useful (think rebar substitute with the same thermal expansion as concrete – no cracking – and an asbestos substitute which is very safe for living beings).

    They also supposedly developed a method of cold forming titanium for submarine hulls which was quite radical (and still classified, I think).

    Then there’s Bearden’s information regarding the Russian work on virtual “templates” and biological cells. Could be they discovered some pretty amazing things. Perhaps there is a matter equivalent of stem cells – something which can be re-arranged to developed into any kind of matter.

    I have no doubt it is possible, and it would certainly be interesting if true. That would also explain part of the sudden shift back to the Cold War view of Russia, and NATO’s war-mongering posture

      Good point. It will make us dream bigger and work harder to find ways of conquering intersteller travel. Super conducting along super conducting connections between nearby stars with our Sun and star hopping from star to star might work to terraform or settle other inhabitable worlds. Imagine the power of the electro-magnetic power stored and generated by the Sun and other stars. Imagine the light from our Sun to a nearby star creates a potentially superconducting connecting bridge when they connect with one and another. Imagine figuring out how to create the field or conditions necessary to be pulled and super conducted along this connection between two stars. Don’t need to harness the power of both stars just need to figure out how to surf the powerful connections already linking them. Galaxy to Galaxy might be possible because the energy contained by two galaxies would be great enough to span their distance just as quickly and faster than light. Speed might be relative to the energy output of the power source vs distance of their connection. Thus the time from one pole of our galaxy to the pole of another galaxy might be near the same time of travel from pole of our Sun to its nearest neighbor.

This could be the ‘real’ terraforming technology we need to make Space Travel and terraforming an actual reality.. If these claims are correct.. And also we need more gold to be transformed into mono-atomic white powder and thrown into the sky as chem-trails in order to repair that big hole in the sky over Australia.. Apparently its working.
