There are indications that the ORMUS materials strongly influence the "normal" properties of water in all of its phases. David Hudson in his Portland workshop said:
"This little zero point frequency I showed you between the positron and the electron; if you follow that right up the electromagnetic spectrum, it agrees with the molecular frequency of hydrogen dioxide, or water. So there is an affinity for this material and water. That's why it is normally taken in water. When you come to understand that your body is, in fact, mainly water. That, literally, this material when you distill water it distills with the water as the auride, the iridide, the ruthidide, just like chlorine.
And so if you distill water thinking you are getting high purity water, it goes with the water. And it literally changes the bond angles of the water. That one iridium atom controls 56 waters of hydration around itself. And all the bond angles of all 56 waters are altered when iridium is present. I haven't carefully studied the research work of people working with water but I strongly suspect that their water isn't completely pure and they are finding that the bond angles can be changed. There is something else besides H2O in the water."
A theoretical model for the properties of the ORMUS materials in water would have to account for the various properties which have been observed. According to our observations the ORMUS materials are superconductors. When these superconductors are in the presence of a moving magnetic field, they will levitate on that magnetic field. These superconducting elements are abundantly present in some, perhaps all, water. If you collect the ORMUS elements from a spring and from 300 meters downstream and convert them to their metallic counterparts, indications are that the ORMUS elements are twice as abundant at the spring as they are 300 meters downstream.
The question is, where do the ORMUS elements go. We believe that they go into the air. As these elements move across the earth's magnetic field in the stream, they levitate into the air, perhaps in water vapor, and are dispersed. We have observed some fairly dramatic examples of the magnetic responses of the ORMUS materials. When these elements are abundantly present in a water matrix and are in a sealed container, they can be induced to "tunnel" out of the container by exposing them to a moving magnetic field. Liquid droplets of the ORMUS water mix will frequently appear on the outside of the container opposite the position of the magnetic field.
For example if the sealed bottle is place upright on a magnetic stirrer, the droplets will appear on the top of the outside of the lid of the container. We have seen this phenomena with sealed HDPE Nalgene containers and with glass containers. If these materials are stored in glass containers, the glass will sometimes fracture at the liquid level. The ORMUS materials have a peculiar taste in water. They are slightly sweet and seem to slick the lips. Water containing concentrated ORMUS materials also is more viscous and slipperier than ordinary water. Salt seems to trap the ORMUS elements and keep them from evaporating with water.
These properties of water appear to be linked to life and consciousness. I will try to establish a chain of evidence and reasoning which links the self organizing properties of life and consciousness with the properties of the ORMUS elements.
In her book, The Rainbow and the Worm, Mae-Wan Ho writes:
"The collagenous liquid crystalline mesophases in the connective tissues, with their associated structured water, therefore, constitutes a semi-conducting, highly responsive network that extends throughout the organism. This network is directly linked to the intracellular matrices of individual cells via proteins that go through the cell membrane. The connective tissues and intracellular matrices, together, form a global tensegrity system, as well as an excitable electrical continuum for rapid intercommunication through-out the body."
She suggests that:
"the instantaneous (nonlocal) coordination of body functions is mediated, not by the nervous system, but by the body consciousness inhering in the liquid crystalline continuum of the body. Implicit in this suggestion is the idea that living systems have a special kind of coherence or wholeness, which is characteristic of macroscopic quantum systems."
Later she elaborates further on this:
"I have argued that quantum coherence is the basis of conscious experience, which involves the possibilities of nonlocal inter-communication between distant parts of the brain, the simultaneous recognition of whole and part in our perceptive field, and the distinctive quality of each experienced occasion.45 All that is beyond the scope of the present discussion. I shall mention just one aspect of (brain) memory here. Many people have already remarked on the holographic nature of brain memory in that it is able to survive large brain lesions. The possibility, from what has been said above, is that memory is not only delocalized over the entire brain, but over the entire liquid crystalline continuum of the body which serves as a holographic medium.
Ervin Laszlo,46 philosopher and systems theorist, has recently proposed that much of personal memory may be stored in an ambient, collective quantum holographic memory field delocalized from the individual - in the universal holographic medium of the quantum vacuum - and that memories are accessed by the brain from the ambient field. This is fully consistent with the 'romantic' idea, increasingly validated by the foundations of quantum theory, that all nature is interconnected, and that the separateness and discreteness of things in the common sensible world are illusory."
Stuart Hameroff and Roger Penrose also postulate that structured water is involved in consciousness at the cellular level. In their paper titled "Orchestrated Objective Reduction of Quantum Coherence in Brain Microtubules: The 'Orch OR' Model for Consciousness" they write:
"Large scale quantum coherence occurring among tubulins (e.g. via electrons in hydrophobic pockets arrayed in the microtubule lattice, or ordered water within hollow MT cores) could take on aspects of a quantum computer in pre-conscious and sub-conscious modes."
So, what are some of the properties of this structured water and what "mechanism" is responsible for its structuring? Hameroff also speaks of the alternating sol/gel state of the water inside microtubules in another paper titled "Cytoplasmic Gel States and Ordered Water: Possible Roles in Biological Quantum Coherence". In his abstract for this paper Hameroff writes:
"Water inside living cell cytoplasm fluctuates between phases of disordered liquid (solution: "sol") and ordered solid (gelatinous: "gel") determined by polymerization of the actin cytoskeleton. Cycles of sol-gel transformations are important in fundamental cellular processes (movement, growth, mitosis, synapse formation, etc.) and are regulated by calcium, which in turn may be regulated by other cytoskeletal structures such as microtubules.
Sol-gel transformations are close to the nature of life, and of consciousness enigmatic phenomena for which quantum coherence has been suggested as an explanatory mechanism. In a quantum coherent system which remains isolated from its environment, spatially distributed components can exist in coherent "superposition" of many possible states. This property may explain the unity of biological functions in a living cell, and of consciousness throughout macroscopic portions of the brain.
The possibility of quantum coherence in biology is often discounted because the disordered water environment is assumed to dissipate any coherence. However, ordered water coupled to the cytoskeleton may become part of its quantum state. This paper argues that cycles of sol-gel transformation in living cells correspond to cycles of dissipation (sol) and isolation (gel) of quantum coherence in microtubules and cytoplasm. Three models of biological quantum coherence depending on actin gels and ordered water are discussed: 1) super-radiance in microtubules ; 2) cellular vision ; 3) orchestrated objective reduction in microtubules ."
In the very first sentence of his paper Stuart Hameroff refers to this liquid as "Energized Water". But what is this structured, Energized Water that Ho and Hameroff suggest might be at the core of consciousness and by what mechanism is it structured? Neither of these authors seems to know. I would like to suggest that all "ordinary" water is modified by the ORMUS elements and that these elements translate subtle energies into physical structure. Following are some of the reasons why I think this.
If we consider water on a spectrum with ultrapure water made by burning pure hydrogen in pure oxygen on one end of the spectrum and with "ordinary" water in the middle of the spectrum we can postulate that the natural presence of the ORMUS elements in the "ordinary" water impart in it the properties which differentiate it from ultrapure water. Water has a number of anomalous properties which would not be expected according to standard chemical models.
The degree of deviance of these anomalies increases between ultrapure water and "ordinary" water. One of the properties of water which differs between ultrapure and ordinary water is viscosity. One would expect that further concentration of the ORMUS elements in water would lead to a further change of this property in the same direction as that between ultrapure and ordinary. This appears to be the case. Various ORMUS researchers have reported that various techniques can be used to obtain a sweet, "oily" water which is lighter than ordinary water.
Full Moon Dew!
The alchemists speak of such a product to be obtained from dew collected at the time of the full moon. Here is a description of such a collection by one researcher:
"I have collected dew many times by using ice in plastic drink bottles with a ceramic bowl collector underneath. The texts advise full moon periods and spring is the best season. (collecting dew off grass is a waste of time). Once, last spring, I collected in this way a 200 ml of clear dew that seemed initially 'oily'. I live in the countryside away from any atmospheric pollution and the vessels were washed with distilled water.
I left this oily dew in a sealed jar and after a week there were small brilliant crystals on the bottom. The dew was decanted off the crystals and gently evaporated. What resulted was a white crusty salt that redissolved with difficulty but was soluble in even weak acids. As it dissolved in the acids, small bubbles were given off which I thought at the time would be carbon dioxide. In water the pH of this matter is about 8 to 8.5. I still have it in my lab and it might be best tested with a moving permanent magnet."
This same researcher has also obtained a similar product from the vortex magnetic trap I described previously. It is possible to further concentrate this oily water till it has the viscosity of grease and "the taste of the grease...is 'fresh'. The best way to describe it, is that it is the taste equivalent of the smell of the first rain drops on parched earth- 'sweet', earthy, fresh."
I have also tasted a similar liquid but from a quite different source. In 1996 Jim, a close friend who is an inventor, developed a method for converting the platinum group elements and gold to the m-state using pH adjustment and ozone. His end product was a slightly acidic gray/white suspension in water. The particular material I am thinking of was made from a platinum/iridium catalytic converter element. It was stored in a 250ml Nalgene bottle with a tight lid. Jim had me take a magnet and spin it under this bottle to demonstrate that the liquid inside was influenced by the magnet. After spinning the magnet under the bottle for about a minute, Jim and I turned our back on the sealed bottle to get another sample from the refrigerator where it was being stored.
When we turned around again, I noticed that there were several drops of a clear liquid perched on top of the lid of the bottle. These drops were definitely not there when we turned our backs on the bottle. I put my finger in one of the drops and noticed that it had an oily feel. Ignoring safe laboratory procedures, I tasted the liquid and noticed that it had a very pleasant sweet taste; like the sweetest natural water that I had ever tasted but magnified several times. When I asked Jim about how he thought that the liquid got out of the sealed bottle he said that he thought that it "tunnelled" (in the Jospehson sense of the word) out.
He said that he had seen this several times and I subsequently saw it happen several times. He suggested that it was "trying to escape the moving magnetic field" but that the portion which showed up on the lid was only a portion of what actually escaped from the bottle. The rest, he claimed, went into the air. These early experiments were the genesis of the concepts which lead Jim to develop the first magnetic traps for the ORMUS materials. During the following year, Jim also made a material from one of the precious metals which would go from a liquid to a gel state in response to exposure to sunlight. We observed this sol/gel phase change, similar to that described by Hameroff, in the ORMUS grease made from metal using ozone.
For about a year, I worked with a gentleman named Gary who referred to himself as "a kundalini awakened American engineer" (in the aerospace industry). In the course of our correspondence, Gary demonstrated a sophisticated knowledge of chemistry, physics, medicine and electronics. Gary wishes to remain anonymous but has given me permission to quote from our extensive correspondence. Gary wrote several emails to me with his explanations of the properties that I have described. (Gary used David Hudson's acronym ORMEs to refer to these materials.) Here are some excerpts from these email messages:
As far as your observations of the oily substance are concerned, I'm sure you are aware, ORMEs are somewhat hydrophilic, and tend also to be hygroscopic. How much so is in a proportion to how strongly their fields are charged. In "solution", the Meissner field of each ORME is capable of controlling a significant number of water molecules; how many, again depends on the ORME's charge. In such a solution of ORMEs, the separation between ORMEs, specifically, the distance at which energy normalization can occur between them is extended by the presence of the water molecules, for a given strength of Meissner field.
It is similar to how inserting a dielectric material increases the capacitance between two plates. The plates may be much more widely separated when the intervening space is filled with a material of hi-dielectric constant, than without it, for the same capacitance. Likewise, the ORMEs can be further apart in water, and still communicate energy between one another. The effect of the Meissner fields in such a situation is to artificially increase the apparent viscosity of the water. It produces a "stiffness" or pseudo-viscosity which is a function of the concentration of ORMEs, and of the field strength.
The field strengths naturally normalize between ORMEs under such conditions, so all individuals within the population come to an equivalence in energy level (assuming mixed species), or to an identical energy level between identical species. This is the explanation behind the slimy, gelatinous consistency of aqueous ORMEs dispersions. This false viscosity is the oily, glycerin-like consistency you reported. The "viscosity" of the suspension may be altered drastically and dramatically, as a function or cause of anything which affects the Meissner fields. For example, placing a sample drop in a magnetic field, well in excess of Hc2, will suppress the extent or range of the individual Meissner fields and (unless other field types, as I alluded to before, are operative) the viscosity may be observed to diminish, particularly if any macro-currents were present
I'm sure that you also, by now, have a clear understanding of the tunneling actions ORMEs are capable of when sufficiently charged. I suggest the following as an explanation of your pipetting descriptions. We might assume that the liquid you observed within the bag, and between the petri dishes had formed from ORMEs, sufficiently charged so as to tunnel out of their containers, and that's how they came to be in those places. Hence the high "viscosity" upon drawing them into a pipette. The aqueous ORMEs suspension which you found accumulated on the inside of the Nalgene lid may be conjectured as being insufficiently charged, and incapable of tunneling, and so became trapped there.
Upon bringing the low charge ORMEs suspension (from the lid) into contact and communication with the highly charged (viscous) ORMEs in the pipette, the first thing that would have happened would have been a instantaneous transfer and normalization of energy between the two populations, with energy flowing from the material in the pipette, to the newly introduced low charge material from the lid. This normalization, or evening out of energy distribution, would result in a new net energy level, below that formerly present in the solution in the pipette. The drop in Meissner field resulted in the observed decrease in apparent viscosity, that you saw.
"Charging the atomic-level ORMEs fields, such as by induction from moving them in a magnetic field (or moving the magnetic field, relative to them)" increasing the strength of their pseudo-ferromagnetic properties (ie making them more magnetic). This will be true, up to the point where their individual Meissner fields begin to touch, which if/when this occurs (again, depending on their inter-atomic spacing within the sample particle) they will at some point (as an energy-communicative grouping) begin to develop a macro diamagnetic Meissner field. Since natural ORMEs (particularly in solution) may not be very close (on average) to one another as individuals, this approach is an effective one.
The same thing ("magnetizing" the ORMEs) can be done faster with a fluctuating field, as in transformer action, but doing it by mechanical induction is intrinsically safer and somewhat self-limiting, and is far less likely to blow apart the ORMEs Cooper pairs from over-charging. [It] is ingenious to utilize this effect for the practical purposes of collecting ORMEs materials from Nature. Because of the typically large inter-atomic spacings of ORMEs in natural dispersions, pseudo-FM effects are very important in this regard. The mechanical translation velocity between the ORMEs and the field lines in [this] method largely avoids flux embedding effects and consequences.
There are large quantities of ORMEs in sea water, and other similar salt water bodies, as a result of eons of natural accumulation. The unique field properties of ORMEs may also be harnessed, to discriminately separate or "sieve" them out for extraction. The uniformity and pumpability of the brine carrier medium makes this a considerably simpler and more direct approach for recovery than the processes necessary to extract ORMEs from volcanic rock?
It is potentially far more benign (it seems to me) from an environmental cost standpoint, to pump water out of the sea, extract the ORMEs, and then return it, rather than obtaining ORMEs from tertiary volcanic deposits by excavations. The relative percentage of gold, mostly as partial ORMEs chlorides, is also significant. Barry, perhaps Dr. Pitkanen's estimate of 10^13 Hz (30 microns) for the light frequency of Cooper pairs rings a bell with you, from DH's lectures. Do you recall DH's discussion of the electromagnetic zero point? That is what I am referring to.
In other words, I suggest that (though quite real mathematically and physically) this is actually an artifact, generated by a zero point interaction; phenomena of this sort are only beginning to gain marginal acceptance. The notch which Max Planck found between black body and solar radiations occurs at about 4 microns. You may also recall that the doublets in DH's near infra-red spectroscopy data for rhodium and iridium ORMEs show unique, distinct zero point doublets, and are even closer to Dr. Pitkanen's figure. These latter two fall within the resonance band for ordinary water molecules, which has significant resonances at wavelengths between about 5-7 microns.
As you can see, these are less than an order of magnitude from Dr. Pitkanen's estimate. Zero point coupling is also related to ORMEs' ability to interact with water, producing the pseudo-viscosity that has been discussed. The EM zero point in these phenomena is an important mechanism by which energy moves to and from the vacuum energy field, and out of or into our own space-time. There exist many zero point [ZP] doublets, within reach of our experience (ie, associated with matter and energy phenomena we are capable of manipulating).
They are points where physical and transcendental resonances occur simultaneously, ie, highly non-linear natural interactions between matter, energy, and space-time. Each of these ZPs represents a point of communication, through which energy may enter (or exit) our 3 dimensional world from higher dimensions, the ultimate source of the vacuum energy. The important thing to understand, is, that it is not necessary for a particular wave's frequency to "match" the mid-frequency of a particular ZP doublet, to experience this sort of transition. It is only necessary that coupling exist between energy (or matter, or both) in our dimensions (for example) and a zero point resonator.
The presence of the appropriate coupling circumstances with a zero point notch or doublet results in the entrainment or discharge of energy, by means of coupling transfer. It is the coupling to the doublet resonator (e.g. a water molecule, ORME, etc.) which is important. The frequency "shift" of the coupled energy occurs as a natural consequence of this, due to topological properties associated with the zero points themselves. The zero points are not merely the specific frequencies they happen to fall on, within the EM spectrum, but are the result of the trans-dimensional resonator, which just happens to have whatever frequency it has; tuning the 'right' frequency without or apart from a ZP resonator does not constitute a zero point.
Matti Pitkanen's Comments!
Matti Pitkanen ties these properties back to consciousness in couple of the articles he wrote on the subject of exotic (ORMUS) atoms. Here is a portion of a letter from Matti, dated Sept. 26, 1996, in which he detailed some of these correlations:
The mailings of Gary were very interesting. He had thought very thoroughly about the super conductivity and viscosity of ORMES. I pondered somewhat about these problems last night. It seems that ideas resembling much those of Gary could provide understanding concerning the thought experiment You did and the viscosity of ORME solution. By the way, the exotic atom concept has been very useful. I have now been able to construct a quite convincing model for membrane potential, EEG and nerve pulse generation.
Earlier model was just the physical ideas plus some order of magnitude estimates. The model leads to Sine Gordon equation and extremely beautiful mathematics. Nerve pulses appear as solitons. Amusing thing is that both "throats" ("wormholes") and Cooper pairs appear as BE condensates and lead to essentially identical models for nerve pulse generation and I do not know, which alternative is correct! Probably both BE condensates are present and Cooper pairs create 'EEG' type oscillation with frequency of order 10^14 Hz and couple to BE condensate of photons whereas "throats" create the real EEG.
1. Viscosity of the ORME solution
The increase of viscosity in ORME solution reflects the presence of LONG RANGE ORDER, which correlates the motions of faraway particles. Simple analog is freezing of liquid or phase transition leading from gas to liquid. The source of long range order should be the formation of macroscopic BE condensate. Somehow the BE condensates associated with individual ORME particles get extended spatially in water. How this extension of the BE condensates associated with ORME particles occurs in solution turned out to be surprisingly easy to understand.
What leads to the formation of large BE condensate are join along the boundaries contacts between the neighbouring atoms. To understand this recall how macroscopic super conductivity results in TGD:eish picture. $#$ throats, that is the extremely tiny 'wormholes' behaving as very light particles, are constrained to move near the boundaries of (atomic) spacetime sheet and connect it to the 'lower' spacetime sheet. These # throats (or wormholes) form a BE condensate and the interaction of electrons with this condensate creates the attraction between electrons giving rise to Cooper pairs.
For individual ORME particles in vacuum the BE condensates are not larger than particle itself. In water solution the hydrogen bonds of water molecules tend to extend this join along boundaries condensate so that # throats delocalize to a larger region and it is possible that the BE condensates of separate ORME particles get joined via the bridges formed by hydrogen bonds. Of course, these bridges are splitting and reconnecting all the time but in any case long range order is created and this is bound to increase viscosity. Quantitative modelling would of course require a lot of work.
Test: Put ORME solution to magnetic field or move magnet near the solution. Does the viscosity change? The prediction is that large enough magnetic field should destroy the BE condensate and super conductivity and lead to a decrease of viscosity.
Obtaining Energized Water!
Since we started to work with these materials we have figured out several ways to obtain the oily water and have discovered that a similar material was described by the ancient alchemists and others. Several of the people who have made the ORMUS water have also ingested it. They claim that it facilitates mental effects which would be congruent with the concept that this material is responsible for biological quantum coherence.
A similar sweet, oily water has been produced from:
- metal using ozone and water
- full moon dew
- magnetic trap water
- the product of two different electrochemical methods
- fractional freezing
- and a chemical method that I developed.
The magnetic trap looks like it might be the easiest and most universally useful method for obtaining this water. One gentleman who has developed an electrochemical method for making the oily water says that he continues to ingest this oil which rises to the top of this preparation and that it induces dreams that are "lucid to the power of 100".
Some time earlier he reported:
In this discussion about sweetness and oils of ORMEs, the taste of the solutions that i have made were very sweet (somewhat like the taste of punch) This taste was very very similar when i was doing ONLY J's process. Sweet, Punch. Also, in both my process and J's, an oil swims on the top of the water. It takes a couple of days for this to occur.
In addition to changes in dreams, several people have reported an increase in psychic ability related to their ingestion of the ORMUS materials. J, mentioned above, is an industrial chemist who claims that he has developed the ability to "see" atomic sized structures as a result of eating the product of the method he developed. He has successfully used this ability to inform his work with these materials.
Here is a comment from J:
I do believe that diatoms of gold and diatoms of silver can cause large-scale quantum effects, but they do so in an observable fashion only in the microtubules of our neurons. These effects are caused by the diatoms' (meaning two atoms) ability to align water within the microtubules. When sufficient concentrations of diatoms are reached, large scale quantum condensations result and this allows the psionic effects of telepathy, bilocation (not biolocation), and telekinesis to occur. In water dispersions, the diatoms cause noticeable increases in viscosity up to approximately 15X the normal for water, but this effect disappears suddenly when the material is concentrated by evaporation. At this point, the viscosity returns to 1X and solids separate.
Historic References to Energized Water!
There are a number of historic references to materials which might fit with our experience of these materials. A modern alchemist of our acquaintance writes:
Several references might be found in the alchemical literature for the use of dew and rainwater (specially, when coming from a thunder storm near the equinoxes), as having special properties which tap water wouldn't have. The "Aurea Catena Homerii", for instance, contains a very interesting procedure which PRS-PON students have tried. Basically, the water is left to stand for some time, when an earth develops within it. Then the water is distilled by fractions, which are then re-fractionated. Upon reunion of the fractions with the earth, different things are obtained, depending on the particular mixture of fractions which is being used.
The earth is the Gur, or universal prime matter, which is vivified by the water to produce a vegetable, animal or mineral generation. Miraculously as it may sound, the idea is you can generate an animal (or plant, or mineral) from that earth when humecting it with the appropriate fractions. As was quantitatively tested by one experimenter, best results were obtained when the rainwater (which had to be previously purified by distillation, due to acid-rain contamination) was electrified by means of a Van de Graaf generator. If dew really rises up, then some sort of electrostatic charge may be present.
A popular alchemical text, the "Mutus Liber" shows how to re-collect and use dew to produce the alchemical Stone. This is done by putting blankets hanging on the air, so that the water does not touch the soil, which might make it loose its charge. Some, however, have collected it just by drawing the blankets through a pasture field, collecting the droplets from the herb. Snow may also do, as the surface has not contacted the soil. The dew is then, as the rainwater, separated into a water and an earth, to be worked upon later.
Again, water attracted by means of deliquescent materials (potassium acetate, to name but one) is supposed to have special properties. Many alchemical recipes which use water, actually mention "distilled rainwater" (distilled dew, or distilled snow, would be more or less equivalent). So there must be a difference. Thus, if you add something like "take distilled dew, and decoct it with your precipitate", your recipe may begin to sound like an alchemical recipe indeed :)
Fluctuations in the earth's magnetic field are related to tidal effects which are generated primarily by the sun and the moon. When the earth's magnetic field is most active might be the best time to collect the ORMUS dew. When the Israelites collected manna in the desert, their collection process was described like a dew collection process. The material they collected was described as tasting like honey or a sweet oil.
And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host. And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground. And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat.
And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell upon it.
The Bible also speaks of the manna as having an oily texture and a sweet taste:
And the people went about, and gathered it, and ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made cakes of it: and the taste of it was as the taste of fresh oil.
And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.
Dew condenses from the air. In his Dallas presentation Hudson said:
"It's called the "white dew", the "white condensate", "the white dove" or it's depicted as a white feather in the alchemical texts. Because that's the way it was purified as a volatile material. Okay? All of the symbols of being fed by a dove, or receiving the white dove, is always an alchemical symbol."
It is fairly clear that these elements are present in the air but we are not familiar with any methods to collect them from the air except those methods described in mystical tradition. Hindu tradition speaks of the prana which can be collected from the air using certain breathing techniques. For example Ujjai Pranayama is a breathing technique which is said to collect prana in the throat by inhaling and exhaling through the nose while the throat is constricted. Chinese tradition mentions chi which is spoken of similarly and Hawaii'an tradition also speaks of a similar substance in the air.
