One of the underlying questions that appears throughout the film All The Gold You Can Eat is deceptively simple: What is ORMUS?
ORMUS is the name given to the mysterious white powder discovered by David Hudson in the late 1970’s, which he subsequently devoted his life, and many millions of dollars trying to research and market. During his research he discovered that the power he found whilst prospecting for gold had some very strange anomalous properties, not the least of which was the fact that it appeared to be invisible to all forms of modern analysis. In effect he seemed to have discovered an entirely new class of mineral. But Hudson went further and began drawing parallels with his powder and the work of the ancient alchemists. He believed that this exotic substance was the legendary Philosophers Stone, the mythical prize of alchemical enquiry that could turn base metals into gold, cure any illness, and elevate the soul of man to enlightenment.
So what is it? Well, everything you will hear about ormus is essentially speculation and most of that speculation comes directly from the work Hudson himself carried out. Most of the rest is piecemeal and anecdotal. However there is one theory that seems to have gathered traction over rest and comes in largely from the patent that Hudson applied for in the 1990s.
Ormus (otherwise known as monatomic metals, white powdered gold, M-state materials) then appears to be a group of metals that can exist in an energetic state that defies conventional atomic theory. The name ORMUS is derived from the acronym for Orbitally Rearranged Monoatomic Elements, or ORME’s. Hudson believed that there were twelve elements within the platinum group of metals whose atomic structure had the potential to mutate, causing the nucleus of the atom to deform which in turn would cause the electrons surrounding the nucleus to orbit in an irregular manner. The theory suggests that under these specific conditions, these irregular atoms are unable to successfully bond to each other as regular atoms do to form conventional molecules of matter.
In this way, the ORMUS elements, whilst indistinguishable from their elemental counterparts in terms of atomic constituent parts (they have the same number of protons, neutrons and electrons) are thought to behave very differently whilst in this altered state. As they don’t bond with each other they would appear to exist in a non metallic, lose affiliated state such as a powder or ceramic.
This apparent discovery of a new class of element is extraordinary enough but those who have followed Hudson’s work are, by and large, convinced that they also posses remarkable bioactive and quantum level properties. Some of the alleged properties of ormus elements are, if true, nothing short of extraordinary. These include assertions that it:
- was used by the ancient egyptians
- can be turned into gold
- causes brain hemisphere synchronisation
- is a cancer cure and a universal medicine, it will keep you looking young
- can regenerate body parts
- can levitate and it is a superconductor
- will lead to spiritual enlightenment
- creates coincidences and serendipity
- is the philosophers stone
The fact that most of these properties have never been properly investigated is what drove me to make the documentary. Mostly they are repeated in the form of an anecdotes or as reference to Hudson’s original research and over the years have taken on the status of fact simply because of repetition on the internet. Infuriatingly, many of the stories are never accredited to actual people and as will most bad science citations and references are rarely if ever given. However, there is enough research being done on the agricultural sector as a live stock feed supplement and as a general crop additive to demonstrate some remarkable bioactive results. And from my personal research as documented in the film ‘All The Gold You Can Eat’ it is possible to take a sample of ormus elements and increase the gold content 2000 fold by a relatively simple procedure. At this stage though, the truth is that no one really knows what ormus is.
