Even though it sounds like science fiction IT’S NOT!
Alchemy is an ancient practice shrouded in mystery and secrecy. Its practitioners mainly sought to turn lead into gold, a quest that has captured the imaginations of people for thousands of years. However, the goals of alchemy went far beyond simply creating some golden nuggets.
Alchemy was rooted in a complex spiritual worldview in which everything around us contains a sort of universal spirit, and metals were believed not only to be alive but also to grow inside the Earth. When a base, or common, metal such as lead was found, it was thought to simply be a spiritually and physically immature form of higher metals such as gold. To the alchemists, metals were not the unique substances that populate the Periodic Table, but instead the same thing in different stages of development or refinement on their way to spiritual perfection.
Could alchemy turn from science fiction to fiction?
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 dynasty of researches trying to turn “lead into gold.”
This is possibly the most powerful discovery in science in the history of mankind:
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.
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.
