ORMUS and the man
©2013 Dan Eden for ViewzoneMany readers suggested that I write about something called “ORMUS”. Not being familiar with this word I googled it. Literally dozens of websites came up, selling a white powder, made from gold, by that name. The claims sounded outrageous.
White powder gold [ORMUS] works by excluding all external magnetic fields (including the Earth’s gravity), and takes you on a trip beyond the third and fourth dimensional space time continuum, bringing you to a fifth dimensional consciousness. This is the dimension of imagination where your thoughts manifest, you’re capable of levitating, teleportation, super telepathy and super sized psychic abilities. 
These “instant karma” products are easily recognized frauds. Their effectiveness relies on taking advantage of their victim’s vulnerabilities. Selling a powder that can “super size” your psychic abilities, allow you to teleport and levitate seems almost criminal.
Since its discovery in 1981, people have been mesmerized by this white powder and, although no one ingesting it has yet reported back from the fifth dimension, ORMUS remains a hot topic in blogs of conspiracy and spiritual websites.
Stick with me. This story will surprise you. Your view of the universe will change. It’s an amazing story that will leave you puzzled.
OK. What the heck is ORMUS?
Enter: The Man, David Hudson
No description of ORMUS can be made without re-telling the story of its discoverer, a Texas cotton farmer named David Hudson.
As Hudson tells it, the soil in Texas is full of sodium and doesn’t hold water very well. Farmers in that region commonly spray sulfuric acid on their land which chemically reacts with the sodium, allowing it to be leeched from the soil with water. Cotton farming on a large scale is mechanized, so Hudson had the equipment and knowledge of working with soils and acids.
As a side venture, Hudson decided he would use the same acid spraying technology to separate gold from the dirt . He would move a load of soil to his new facility where it would be safely sprayed with acid and the dissolved precious metals would eventually be filtered out and purified.
At some point in this new venture, Hudson noticed that the process he had been using was being contaminated by some material that survived the chemical steps which excluded non-precious metals, yet it did not analyze as one. There was so much of this material that it impeded his ability to extract gold. The samples were contaminated to the point where the gold would become brittle and could shatter like glass when hit with a hammer.
The first sample of the contaminated gold was sent to a lab for analysis, but they could only detect gold. The mysterious stuff could not be detected. Eventually Hudson managed to separate the gold from the other stuff and, as he puts it, “I had this sample of pure problem stuff, whatever it was.”
Hudson tried some experiments himself. He noticed that it would not dissolve in any acid or base and was heavy enough to drop to the bottom of molten lead. He became frustrated and sent a sample to a laboratory at Cornell University for analysis. The first results of x-ray spectroscopy were disappointing. The sample showed only iron silica and aluminum — just what you would expect to see in a soil sample from the Southwest. But with Hudson’s insistence (and money) the laboratory chemically removed the iron silica and aluminum. They were still left with 98% of the sample and repeated their x-ray spectroscopy again. This time the results were different.
It analyzed to be nothing. Emission and absorption spectra did not agree with any spectra programmed into the machine. There were no specific lines emitting or absorbing that could be identified.
It’s there… but it’s not there!
Hudson says he was amazed that none of the professional chemists were bothered that they had encountered a substance that could not be identified. They didn’t share his scientific curiosity. He eventually stumbled upon the research of Russian scientists with the Soviet Academy of Sciences who had been working with a similar material. They claimed it was a collection of special atoms belonging to the “platinum group” (palladium, platinum, ruthenium, rhodium, iridium and osmium). These metals were revealed when subjected to temperatures like on the Sun — around 5,200 degrees Centigrade — and literally boiled away.
A sample was eventually tested for emission spectroscopy by fractional vaporization where the material to be analyzed is placed on the carbon electrode and burned for 300 seconds. As each element reaches its boiling point, it vaporizes and gives off a unique spectrum of light that is captured and measured.
Iron silica and aluminum boiled away quickly during the first 15 seconds. After about 70 seconds and continuing to 270, Hudson’s sample was revealing significantly large proportions of precious metals: palladium, platinum, ruthenium, rhodium, iridium and osmium. At that time in history, rhodium alone was selling for $13,000 and ounce and Hudson had an estimated 1,200 ounces per ton of rhodium in his “problem stuff.”
David Hudson is a very intelligent man, despite often referring to himself as a “dirt farmer.” He realized that something profound was happening when a well respected and highly experienced Ph.D. in Phoenix informed him that his sample had yet another anomaly. In separating a sample that had the spectroscopic emission of rhodium, he had heated and reheated and reheated the sample. Each time he kept some product for comparison. The three samples were totally different in appearance.
“What he did, is he would take it in and oxidize it and get a red-brown oxide, which is the correct color of rhodium dioxide. He would cool it and take 1/3 of that sample and put it in a sealed vial. He then would take two thirds of the remaining sample, put it back in the tube furnace, re-oxidize it and hydrogen reduce it. He would then cool it down, take it out of the tube furnace, take half of the sample and put it in another sealed vial. And then he would take the remaining third and put it back in the tube furnace and anneal it at 1,400 degrees Centigrade and it turns snow white. “ 
When all three samples were sent to the Pacific Spectrachem in California they tested as three different elements: the first was iron, then silica aluminum and the last was determined to be calcium and silica — all from the original rhodium material. How could that be? The brilliant Ph.D. was stumped.
A New State of Matter!
Hudson was in a strange position. He had access to large amounts of highly prized metals that were worth even more than gold, yet they would not test positive with known instruments. Fortunately for Hudson, a small company making rhodium fuel cells was familiar with the analytical anomalies of rhodium — especially when it was reduced to very small clusters. They bought Hudson’s refined “problem stuff” at $10,000 an ounce.The company told Hudson that the fuel cells worked perfectly and that when the spent rhodium was removed it tested positive for rhodium with their instruments. They encouraged Hudson to get a patent on the production of this weird material.
In doing research for the patent application, Hudson learned that his material was mono-atomic, meaning that it existed as single, solitary atoms. The chemical and electrical properties of mono-atoms in the so-called platinum group [above, pink] of elements are different enough to consider them a fourth state of matter (Maybe even a fifth if you consider plasma as a separate state).
“Divide and subdivide a solid and the traits of its solidity fade away one by one, like the features of the Cheshire Cat, to be replaced by characteristics that are not those of liquids or gases. They belong instead to a new phase of matter, the micro-cluster. Micro-clusters consist of tiny aggregates comprising from two to several hundred atoms. They pose questions that lie at the heart of solid state physics and chemistry, and the related field of material science. How small must an aggregate of particles become before the character of the substance they once formed is lost? How might the atoms reconfigure if freed from the influence of the matter that surrounds them? If the substance is a metal, how small must this cluster of atoms be to avoid the characteristic sharing of free electrons that underlies conductivity?” — Scientific American, December 1989
Hudson described this new state of matter, one where the electrons in the outer shell were inaccesible, as Orbitally Rearranged Monatomic Elements (ORME). For other reasons I will discuss it has also become known as ORMUS.
Because they are not involved with chemical bonds to other atoms, mono-atomic elements acquire a fast spinning nucleus that is no longer spherical. It has been described as being more like a football or banana. Another strange phenomenon is that all of the spinning nuclei in these mono-atomic atoms do so to the same beat, regardless of their mass. It’s like they are all “dancing” to some universal frequency that only effects mono-atomic nuclei.
Perhaps as a response to this new vibration, the electrons in the outer shell alter their orbits and become unavailable to chemical and electrical interactions. This is why mono-atomic elements are not detected by analytical systems designed to observe the electron clouds.
The final product, the white powder [above], contains 12 known mono-atomic elements. The powder has the “feel” and look of white flour — white because the unavailable electrons did not absorb any of the reflected spectrum. The material was also a superfluid, since there is minimal adhesion between the atoms. But the strangest property of this white powder was still to be discovered. It’s this property that has caused all of the infatuation.
Hudson’s first US patent application was returned as incomplete. He failed to give the weight of his product. This wasn’t an oversight. Hudson had tried to obtain a weight but the product was giving anomalous readings there also.
For example, mono-atomic iridium was repeatedly heated and cooled in a thermo-gravimetric analysis machine that recorded the weight of the sample over time in a controlled atmosphere. Initially the material showed signs of becoming heavier — as much as 300 to 400 times its original weight! [see above] These charts are from Hudson’s patent in 1989.
But what really got noticed was the loss of weight. Gold, for example, when converted to a white powder by extreme heating suddenly becomes 4/9 of its original mass. If it is converted back to metallic gold, the weight suddenly returns! 
In thermo-gravimetric analysis the same sample of iridium even showed a negative weight — meaning that it weighed less than the weight of the sample and the container. [see above] In short — it levitated!
Hudson was to learn that the white powder iridium and rhodium were high-temperature superconductors. Now many more people became interested, not the least being the US military. Hudson claims his US patent was withdrawn because of strategic reasons.
Edible Superconductors and Manna
One might assume that this kind of a discovery would be the subject of scientific research. But contrary to reason, there is very little published data on this topic. Yes, mono-atomic elements do exist in nature and, yes, certain elements in the platinum group do acquire fast-spin nuclei and their electrons do prevent them from chemical and electrical bonding. That much is known, yet it isn’t on the periodic table of elements and it’s not taught in university level physics.
“The discovery of monatomic elements has so far recieved little mainstream attention, but is expected to become an important subject in the future.” 
Information about mono-atomic matter seems to have somehow gone off the radar, not unlike studies of zero-point energy, UFO propulsion and life extension. It is called “exotic physics” by the scientific community. We know that somewhere, someone is learning how to exploit this discovery, or perhaps they have already, but no reputable scientists will risk their reputations by taking a position on ORME or ORMUS.
The matter was further complicated by Hudson himself. Along his interesting journey discovering mono-atomic superconductivity, he became aware of ancient alchemical descriptions of white powder gold. He was convinced that mono-atomic gold was the philosopher’s stone and that it was the Biblical “manna” that sustained the Jews in their exile from Egypt.
“…one of the things I came across immediately was the Melchizedek priesthood and the white powder of gold associated with the Melchizedek priesthood. So I went to Rabbi Plotkin at Temple Beth Israel in Phoenix, and I asked the Rabbi, who is one of the most knowledgeable rabbis in Arizona, I said, “Rabbi, have you ever heard of the white powder of gold?”, and he said, “Oh yes Mr. Hudson, but to our knowledge no one’s known how to make it since the destruction of the first temple”. He said, “The white powder of gold is the magic. It can be used for white magic or black magic”. 
After hearing Hudson’s lectures, people were eating, inhaling and taking ORMUS intravenously as if it really was the magical manna from heaven.
Semen of the Father in Heaven
All of the Egyptians that had this knowledge were slaughtered, and no one was there to bring them back to life. But the Hebrews had this knowledge, and Bezaleel, the goldsmith, was commanded by Moses to prepare the “What is it?”, the manna, or the “bread of the presence of God”, which was another name, they knew it in old kingdom Egypt. In old kingdom Egypt they had three other names for it, it was called “the golden tear from the eye of Horus”, it was called “that which issues from the mouth of the Creator”, the spittle, or it was called “the semen of the Father in Heaven”. And if you take the white powder gold and you mix it with water, it forms a gelatinous white suspension, that, as a farmer I can attest, it does look just like semen, which we use to, for the cattle and all. Ah, that would be a good description of it, if I was trying to convey to someone what it looks like. –David Hudson 
And, while I am quoting Hudson, here’s how the word ORMUS got associated with the powder.
“Now if that isn’t heavy enough for you, when I found out that the name for the golden tree of life was the ORME, ormus or ormes. And the name of my patent is Orbitally Rearranged Monatomic Elements. In the Book of Isaiah, it says a latter day David, a descendant of the Davidic blood line, my cousin, bless her soul joined the Mormon Church, and they had her do her genealogy, and my great-great-great grandmother, was Hanna de Guise, daughter of Christopher de Guise, brother of Charles or Claude de Guise, who if you got a copy of “Holy Blood Holy Grail” there, Charles or Claude de Guise is in the book. Nostradamus worked for the de Guise family and Nostradamus prophesied by 1999 the occult gold will be known to science. Very specific prophecy, very exact dates, very precise.Â And a descendent of this family, a latter day David, is the one who’s to plant the Golden Tree of Life.” 
The late lecturer, Laurence Gardner, became one of the most visible proponents for using white powder gold as a medicinal and spiritual cure-all, capable of causing the body’s DNA to self-repair and self-restore. Gardner believed that mono-atomics are capable of increasing the body’s intra- and extra-cellular communications by as much as ten thousand times because of their superconductivity.
Gardner’s lectures should be taken with caution. In the second video he quotes a verse from Exodus where Moses instructs his metalsmith, Bezaleel, to burn the golden calf to a “powder”, mix it with water and feed it to the people. I read Exodus many times but never found any reference to this. In any case, Gardner’s ideas seem to represent many believers (and consumers) of ORMUS, the white gold powder.
The Rationale of ORMUS claims
I’ve spent the last week reading up on the potential benefits of ingesting ORMUS. While there are no documented cases of consumers of white powder gold having reached nirvana or bi-location, the theory behind some of these physical, mental and spiritual upgrades makes me pause.
In 1996, the family of Leslie Burroughs filed a complaint against a physician who prescribed ORMUS intravenously to their daughter, resulting in her death from sepsis (a blood infection). The patient was a young woman who had contracted HIV from a sperm donor in an artificial insemination procedure. She had already reached the end stages of AIDS, was in a coma, and ORMUS was considered an “extreme” but worthwhile attempt to save her. Unfortunately it was just too late for anything.
According to her physician, Dr. Payne, “Patients basically have two options when they’re at the end stage of HIV disease. They can sit around and say, ‘Woe is me.’ Or they can say, ‘Maybe there’s something out there that will work for me. If it works, I’ll have bought myself some time. And if it doesn’t, at least I’ll have added to the pool of knowledge.” [Ibid.]
After reviewing the conduct of her physician, no charges were issued. The incident does highlight the problems with white powder and ORMUS. There is no guarantee of the quality, sanitation or amount of gold (or other monoatomic elements) in the end product. It’s unknown territory. What research that is being done is conducted by private groups such as the Tempe, Arizona based Spirit Foundation, who were at one time associated with Hudson’s ORMES, Ltd.
- Physical Benefits: ORMUS, white powder mono-atoms, are electron neutral and will not react with any other atoms. As such, they do not break down in digestion and should pose no risk of toxicity, as with normal metals. It is believed that if fast-spin nuclei in these atoms is in proximity to a DNA molecule, the field surrounding the mono-atoms will influence the DNA molecule to “relax” and repair itself. There is some research that suggests this may be possible but so far it is only theoretical.The superconducting abilities of ORMUS have suggested to some scientists that communication within the cell, and between cells, could be enhanced by the incorporation of these atoms in our cellular material. This is even more in the spotlight these days after revelations that superconducting light is indeed involved in cell metabolism and DNA replication. [see viewzone article on this topic].
- Spiritual Benefits: ORMUS, as a superconductor, is believed to exist partially in another dimension. One theory holds that the deformed nuclei of ORMUS requires that the protons move at a velocity greater than the speed of light in order to maintain their synchronized “dance” with the universe. This is thought to explain the mysterious disappearance of 5/9 of the weight of the powder during its production. Physicists note that when the white powder is reconverted to its original state, the weight unexpectedly returns!In theory, anything faster than the speed of light is beyond our dimensional reality and, indeed, exists in the next (fifth) dimension. So by taking ORMUS regularly one gradually replaces their fourth dimension body with a fifth dimension one — a body of superconducting light. Again, there is no evidence to support this other than theory. These claims are made more appealing by Sumerian, Egyptian and ancient Alchemy texts supporting the claim that white powder gold allows one to transcend this reality.
- Mental Benefits: ORMUS proponents like to claim that Hudson found from 5% to 10% of monoatomic rhodium and iridium in the non-organic composition of pigs and calves brains. This seems to suggest that its role in the nervous system is critical. Although no human brain studies have been published, it is suggested that if superconducting atoms were integrated in the various regions of our brain, we should then be able to “link up” with other brains by utilizing the Meissner fields. In effect, it might be theoretically possible for the brains to share information and thoughts, like some mental network.Then there is the strange phenomenon of mono-atomic fast-spin nuclei, that all seemed to be coordinated, as if they too belong to a greater, universal field. Is this universal field intelligent? If so, we could possibly “link up” with it. The possibilities are endless.
Please don’t go out and buy white powder gold. The research just isn’t to the point where the benefits — or danger — are fully understood. In fact some shaman and spiritual advisors are saying that the ORMUS does work but that it is a dangerous tool for the unexperienced and uninitiated to experiment with.
White Owl, a Native American shaman, had this warning:
“The experiences and information that come through on a native American spiritual level are not manipulated or artificial experiences and the information that comes through is in a pure form. The information that comes through by use of this monoatomic gold is somewhat manipulated and artificial. Think of it as a vibration of sorts. For example, the beings that operate on this vibration can only be “seen” or “heard” by us when taking this monoatomic gold. Otherwise, they are largely invisible.
It’s like getting an extra channel on your TV when they are able to reach you. While they would like to think they have transcended on a spiritual level, they seem to be trapped and unable to move out of the dimension they are currently in, except through contact with us humans and only by bringing us to their “Vibration”. Whether this is mind control or manipulation is unknown.
I felt as though one dream in particular was an attempt to influence me and I was actually threatened with a particular punishment if I did not follow through with it. Why they would bother to threaten me is not logical because there “attempt” to influence me to do something, was actually a noble and kind act, so it did not make sense to threaten me as it was not something I would object to anyway. I believe this was an “Experiment” by them to see if they could influence me or trick me in to doing there bidding. They might also mistakenly believe that by getting humans to create good Karma, it will reward them with spiritual overspill or reward.
This brings to my mind that perhaps these beings are only able to “Live” and “Direct” or “Influence” through us physical beings, but they have no control whatsoever on the physical plane because they are not on, nor in it.”
Some questions keep coming up in e-mails so I will try to answer them as best I can.
Q: Where do mono-atomic atoms come from?
Since mono-atomic atoms are not interested in forming bonds with other atoms, it is likely that they have been in their isolated state for a long time. Some have proposed that they are manufactured naturally in the center of stars where high temperatures can disintegrate molecular bonds. Others think that they were made when the universe began — perhaps with the Big Bang. It has even been proposed that mono-atomic elements make up the elusive “dark matter“. In astrophysics and cosmology, dark matter is matter of unknown composition that does not emit or reflect enough electromagnetic radiation to be observed directly, but whose presence can be inferred from gravitational effects on visible matter.
David Hudson did not create mono-atomic atoms, his patents were for the separation and refinement of the elements already in his soil. Hudson had as much as 13% mono-atomic elements in his soil samples.
The oceans are a rich source of mono-atomic elements and this is perhaps the most efficient source from which to extract them. They are also concentrated in certain plants and vegetables.
Q: Did ORMUS really levitate? Did the sample Hudson tested really weigh 300 times the original sample weight when it was heated?
Actually, yes and no. Hudson learned that his sample was a high temperature semiconductor that was reacting to small electromagnetic fields in the heating element of the testing apparatus as well as the earth’s magnetic field. The fluctuations were likely due to small movements of the testing platform while the sample was levitating. Also, the material did lose 5/9 of its original weight when it formed the white powder. Hudson claims that when the white powder is reconstituted (somehow) back to gold it regains all the weight (somehow).
Q: Why isn’t there any current research being done on this?
The research is hard to find at first. They don’t call it ORME or ORMUS. Look insteal for nano-, m-state, fast-spin nuclei, hyperdeformed nuclei… it’s there. But clandestine.
Where’s Hudson today?
There are dozens of websites selling ORMUS and white powder gold to well-meaning customers, trying to escape ill health or death, or thinking that they will transcend this reality to a better one. Meanwhile David Hudson has declared that he is through with ORMUS and he has pretty much disappeared from the scene. Some years ago he suffered a heart attack, at which time he was questioned about taking ORMUS to improve his health. Hudson surprised many believers when he admitted that he did not take ORMUS himself. [right: Hudson giving lecture in 1995]
David Hudson’s US patents were not processed. Hudson claimed that this was because of the strategic value our government placed on these “secrets”. However, the same patents have been filed by him in many other countries. Hudson “owns” the methods for producing 12 mono-atomic elements. It seems a shame that the only publicized application of this technology has been as a medicine. Surely the levitation, superconducting and superfluid properties of this new state of matter can have some energy application… Am I being too practical?
It’s a strange world. Yes?
