20th Century Alchemy

by Joe E. Champion

Dear Reader:

This book covers my personal and scientific historical accounts for the last four years. Exacting details for replication of nuclear reactions are enclosed. Replication should only be attempted by trained scientific or technical personnel with proper equipment. Otherwise, one could cause harm to themselves and the environment.

Twentieth Century Alchemy is a publication which covers the debate which has plagued man for millenniums. "Can one cause an element to change from itself to another by a chemical reaction?" Well, my good friend, Dr. John O'M Bockris from Texas A&M University is now conjuring a new breed of scientists fluttering throughout their laboratories adorned in their black robes, wearing conical hats with their pet horned toads, sprinkling elixir on lead to convert it to gold.

However, the reality is, alchemy, in the true sense of the word, has been present since the beginning of our Universe. Mother Nature is the master Alchemist in the formation of elements. Man's witness of alchemy was first recorded around 5,000 B.C. in Chinese and Egyptian writings. During the last 2,000 years, claims to be able to chemically synthesize gold have been maintained in Europe and Asia. Such claims have undoubtedly been a vehicle to many frauds. During the Middle Ages, laws were established against alchemy. Although, after review of this book one must question the motives of such laws. Were they established to protect the innocent, or to prevent competition of elixirists of the kingdom?

During the early 1900's, science was directed by Doctors Rutherford and Bohr to accept the fact that transmutation, i.e. nuclear change, occurs only from high energy reactions and cannot be stimulated by chemical changes. Even I was a disciple of this doctrine until the late 1980's when experiments within my laboratory and the laboratories of others indicated that nuclear change can occur at extremely low energies. These low energies are what one would expect from a chemical reaction.

In 1989, I was asked to view a phenomenon witnessed for over thirty years by hobby chemist, Mr. Jack Keller. The reaction, which he assumed to be that of a "collection process, 11 indeed was a newly discovered nuclear event. This discovery now allows one to create, through nuclear transmutation, gold and platinum from mercury, silver and palladium from cadmium, rhodium from silver, plus numerous other elements from recorded reactions.

Prior to publication, I pondered the implications the book and the science could have on society. I recognized there were positive, as well as negative aspects of the science to consider. I will never forget Dr. Jerry Gaston's, Dean of Sociology at Texas A&M remarks, when he was first introduced to the scientific phenomenon. Regarding the synthetic production of precious metals, he stated, words to the effect, "If this science is true, it would cause worldwide economic chaos with far reaching, irreparable damage to certain Third World nations."

However, in mid?1992 I spent considerable time in Washington, D. C. trying to obtain Government support. Through the coordinating efforts of the highly respected Mr. Glen Young, Esquire and Miss Nancy Meacham, both from Wichita, Kansas, I met with the senior aides of Senators Dole and Kassebaum. I educated them on the technological aspects of the science. They were presented the envisioned positive capabilities of the science in ridding the world of radioactive waste, providing low energy, non?polluting, low cost energy, and cleaning up our environment as well as the negative possibility cited by Dr. Gaston.

This was not the Senators' first introduction to the science. Their initial exposure to the technology came from a private presentation two months earlier by Mr. Alan Loiben, Esquire and Miss Meacham. Mr. Loiben, a Chicago attorney and valued friend has been involved with the science since its inception and has represented me for the past eight years in my various scientific endeavors. Because of his professional involvement, he was able to articulate directly to the Senators, in terms in which they could understand, the dangers this technology posed for mankind if improperly supported. But Washington turned a deaf ear.

This was not the first case of deafness in Washington. There were others. In November of 1991, a Congressional Representative from Houston, Texas, contacted in my behalf by Mr. George Jacobs Esq., also of Houston, was notified of the implications of the science. In the same time frame, federal intelligence agencies were informed. Further, since the reaction is a nuclear occurrence, administrators and scientists attached to the Department of Energy (DOE), National Regulatory Commission (NRC) and Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) were notified and supplied technical papers. All, apparently, swept interest in the science aside.

I have made a valid, sincere effort to involve the leaders of our Government in the proper control, administration and support of the science. Many offices in our Government have heard of the advantages as well as the possible side effects of the science. The question is, why the deaf ear from the Government? Was it due to my lack of pedigree? Was the technology considered impossible since it challenged the laws of high energy physics?

When I first notified the Government, I was only producing milligrams of precious metals from a kilogram of starting material. Now we are obtaining grams from the same kilogram of material. Our cost of production is only ten cents per gram of precious metals, or roughly three dollars per ounce. Further improvements in the cost of production are considered likely as we continue our commercial production venture.

I am fully aware that many readers of this publication will have the question, why write a book on the subject? My answer, simply stated, is that too many learned scientists and Governments have been unwilling to open their minds to the possibility that yet undiscovered laws exist in science which effect our Universe. This book could be considered a primer for the skeptics, or, at least, a generator of thoughts.

You will observe in this publication the verification of the science. Only a portion of those involved have been mentioned. Further, those of you capable of duplicating the detailed procedures will be able to provide personal verification through replication of my experiments.

I wish to thank Mr. Keller and his wife, Ruth, who allowed me the opportunity to make this discovery. A special thanks to Dr. John O'M Bockris, who through his wiry Brit humor, forced me to strive to the highest level of scientific integrity. Of course, he would not accept this book as a "proper" presentation, but circumstances have dictated this level is necessary for a publication of this magnitude. Also, this publication would never had succeeded without the due diligence and assistance of Retired Captain Roger Briggs, U.S.N. and Mr. Greg Tabat, whose belief in the science allowed this to be published during my fallacious incarceration.
