Biological Transmutations

I had a request from a reader for a discussion thread on the topic of biological transmutations, which has come up here recently. The following is a section from the ECW LENR Knowedge Base on the topic:

Most chemical reactions keep atoms, but a very small number cause fusions and also fissions of atoms in living beings. Although very few in number, these biological transmutations reactions involve a large number of species, from bacteria to mammals, in several biological processes that control and are essential for these organisms.

Researchers began to observe atoms conservation anomalies from the time conservation of matter was understood before 1800. It is only from 1959 that some researchers have understood that transmutations could explain biologic abnormalities. Since 1975, confirmation and publication of scientific works by Louis Kervran can be considered to have proven the existence of this phenomenon, but in 2014, it still has no confirmed theoretical explanation.

This biological effect seems to combine:

  • a chemical reaction
  • a low-energy interaction of atomic nuclei
  • and a catalysis (specific) which favors them in a biological process.

From 1799 to 1873 researchers asked themselves whether these transmutations exist. From 1959 to 1972 they have been proven by more than 6,000 elementary experiments. In 2003 Jean-Paul Biberian took stock of all the atoms involved in one bacterium. Since then some researchers have been wondering how to use these biological transmutations to reduce pollution by conventional radioactive waste.

A french site describe this history with many references. Some interesting points listed here are:

  • The reactions observed in biology are based mostly on mergers and fissions with hydrogen, oxygen or carbon and involve at least: H, C, N, O, Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S , K, Ca, Mn, Fe.
  • Many of these reactions are reversible, that is to say made also in the other direction by other biological processes.
  • Only certain isotopes are concerned and the products are all stable isotopes.
  • When these biological atomic nuclear reactions, we failed to detect radiation typically produced by high energy reactions (alpha, beta, gamma, X-rays).
  • They only use nuclear interactions called low energy.
  • They are accompanied by a variation in mass in agreement with the average binding energy.
  • These reactions are slow.
  • They occur in biological processes.
  • The residual thermal effect is very small and does not interfere with living beings.
  • Louis Kervran has noted these reactions following this example Mg + O: = Ca ([1] p 111)
  • They respect the principle of conservation of matter, they will integrate the correspondence mass-energy (E = mc2) of relativity and change the invariance principle becomes: In biological transmutations, the physico-chemical reactions retain the number of nucleons but alter the chemical element composition.
  • They occur perhaps in geological processes, or in a neighboring phenomenon called “Cold Fusion” (Cold Fusion). In these cases the conditions are quite different pressures and temperatures and are not compatible with life.

Vysotskii et al. studied the potential of bacterial transmutations for clean up of nuclear waste. See here

    The support that Biological Transmutation gives to a micro bug implies that the bug knows what element it needs and can produce that element at will. How does the bug control the transmutation process?

    If the bug can control transmutation, why can’t we?

  • Axil Axil

    Where does the Biological Transmutation happen, inside the bug or outside of it? Where is the NAE located? If inside the bug, how does the bug get the raw material it uses for the transmutation inside of itself? How does the bug know what raw material is required to do the transmutation?

      That is at least an easy answer. All biological organisms are replete with a number of light elements, and metals, inside of them (which is where metabolic proteins and enzymes are). Iron, calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, and zinc are some of the main metals all life absorbs. This is done by channels and proton pumps, which uptake the material into the cell interior. Some metals, in particular iron, are hotly fought over, and both our own human cells and bacterial cells secret proteins designed specifically to bind up iron in solution, and then bring it back to the cell, which will recognize the chelator protein and uptake it by endocytosis. Or in the case of an ionophore, the chelating protein can simply cross the plasma membrane and enter the cell directly on its own, allowing transport of ions down a concentration gradient and to equilibrium (generally this is not used, as most of the time the cell has a higher concentration of the metals and ions than is in the environment, and so ionophores like Valinomycin are actually antibiotics by removing the high metal concentration from the cells and thus killing them).

    Report 2247 (May 1978)

    Abstract ~ The purpose of the study was to determine whether recent disclosures of elemental transmutations occurring in biological entities have revealed new possible sources of energy. The works of Kervran, Komaki, and others were surveyed; and it was concluded that, granted the existence of such transmutations (Na to Mg, K to Ca, and Mn to Fe), then a net surplus of energy was also produced. A proposed mechanism was described in which Mg-Adenosine Triphosphate (MgATP), located in the mitochondrion of the cell, played a double role as an energy producer. In addition to the widely accepted biochemical role of MgATP in which it produces energy as it disintegrated part by part, MgATP can also be considered to be a cyclotron on a molecular scale. The MgATP when placed in layers one atop the other has all the attributes of a cyclotron in accordance with the requirements set forth by E.O. Lawrence, inventor of the cyclotron.

    It was concluded that elemental transmutations were indeed occurring in life organisms and were probably accompanied by a net energy gain.


    I like this explanation of the mechanism for transmutation. Whenever there is a vortex motion of electrons underway, an polariton or plasmoid process will occur. A EMF black hole will form that will induce transmutation via worm hole tunneling as I explained below in a post.

      One of the fascinating aspects of the ATP energy storage and release mechanism that functions flawlessly in every living life form is that it is a low probability event in a beaker outside the energy fields surrounding living cells.

        Further to this a careful analysis of the caloric content consumed versus energy expenditure, in humans, reveals that approximately 35% (varies with time and from person to person) of expended energy cannot be accounted for by caloric intake.

          A very interesting guy…

    One silly question, could be the reason that the life is so close connected to water abundance due to the fact that Hydrogen in the water enables LENR? Could life depend on a current hidden LENR process that is happening all the time inside every living cell?

      Nobody knows how a catalyst realy works. But if LENR is a supercharged catalytic process, then a catalyst is a weak LENR process. A catalytic process could be simply caused by electrons confined by a circular vortex based motion. If life is a catalytic process, then life could be said to be a water based LENR process.

  • Robert Ellefson

    You are describing known results of the classic electrolytic cold fusion process, ala Pons and Fleischmann, that helped give birth to the term Low Energy Nuclear Reactions, but LENR is most certainly not limited to reactions that produce helium. There is a wide open field of yet-to-be-described reactions awaiting taxonomic identification within the umbrella of LENR, not counting the dozens that we’ve already identified clearly, such as in biological transmutations.

    One of Sheldrake’s ‘stupid’ experiments can be carried out by just about anyone, he postulates a species of ‘entanglement’ between humans and their pets.

    To test this requires two camera operators, one to follow the human while out in the world, the other operator stays with the pet, dogs being the most frequent subjects.

    The human announces to his operator that they’ve decided to go home, the time stamped video is compared with the other footage of their pet. In 1,200 trials the pet demonstrates an obvious change in behaviour in the same instant as the intention to return is announced, dogs that love their person go wait at the door…

    Try it.

    That this actually happens should be the object of vast curiosity as the implications are profound.

    Sheldrake is an interesting guy because he performs fascinating experiments.
