ORMUS Life Cycle
by Barry Carter

In his patent, David Hudson said that the ORMUS substances exist in nature. He wrote:

"During efforts to effect quantitative analytical separations of transition metals from naturally occurring materials, it was discovered that ORMEs exist naturally and are found in salts with alkali metals and/or alkaline earth metals, all of which are coupled with waters of hydration and normally found with silica and alumina."

"ORMEs exist naturally" is a very unambiguous statement. You can read more about this at:


Furthermore, in his lectures, Hudson claimed that volcanic sources are most likely to have high levels of natural ORMUS elements:

"The elements are quite plentiful particularly in volcanic areas or volcanic soil."

He linked their abundance to agricultural productivity:

"when these elements are present you have extremely great agricultural production. And you'll see that over in Hawaii, and places where there is volcanic ash and soil, um, the production is just unbelievably dense. Everything grows lush and so, I know that these elements are critical for there to be proper life. I know these elements must be present."

David Hudson even claimed that these elements are abundant in sea water. In his UFO Congress lecture David Hudson said that "gold out of sea water was the white powder gold". You can listen to this passage at:


Don Nance's assays have confirmed that ORMUS is abundant in sea water. You can read more about this at:


Unfortunately we don't have any of David Hudson's assays that might confirm his claim that ORMEs are present in his materials.

David Hudson said that even distilled water contained these substances and that "if you distill water thinking you are getting high purity water, it goes with the water". He added: "There is something else besides H2O in the water."

Here is the entire quote from Hudson's Portland workshop about ORMUS in distilled water:

"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 oridide, 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."

Still, one might say that Hudson defined these materials in his patent as being capable of superconductivity only after they had been repeatedly heated and cooled sequentially in a hydrogen atmosphere, then in an argon atmosphere then in a helium atmosphere. This is also not true.

In most of his lectures he talks about biological superconductivity and suggests that the ORMUS elements may be the key to it. You can find quotes from the scientific papers that Hudson often quoted on this subject at:


Here is one such quote from Hudson's Dallas lecture:

[1:21:15] "Magnetic flux quantization and Josephson behavior in living systems". Now, what they're talking about here is the Josephson junction, and that's a superconducting switch. Basically when you understand these are mono-atoms, resonance coupled, but if the magnetic field applied is great enough to break that resonance coupling then it stops the superconductivity, and that's called a Josephson junction. They gave a Nobel Prize to Brian Josephson for discovering that. But it's actually enough external magnetic field and instead of flowing more current it actually cuts between the superconductors, and because these are monoatomic resonance coupled systems, any external field that breaks that resonance coupling stops the superconductivity. And they have found, in evaluating the superconductivity in living systems, that in fact, if you apply too much magnetic field it stops it. And that number is somewhere around 8-10 gauss. So, people who are working with these high magnets and all, it's too much magnetic field. If you're around power lines, it's too much magnetic field. Tremendous implications here if you really start thinking about the economics of it, what's involved and basically they have found superconductivity and they found that it acts like Josephson junctions and "its coherent excitation in the biological systems have already been proposed", and they go on to discuss their findings. And "the Josephson effects are seen, an anomalous, non-Ohmic current", in other words it has no voltage, there's no voltage at all, it's just pure amperage, and anyway, they said it's identical to the Josephson junction effect.

Okay, next paper. This article is "Physica Scripta, Volume 40, 1989, pages 786-791". This is, "Biological sensitivity to weak magnetic fields due to biologically superconducting Josephson junctions". Good old big brother, Biological Laboratories, U.S. Naval Air Development Center in Westminster, Pennsylvania, and this one, they actually, at the very introduction here, in the summary, it says, "Various species of organisms can detect weak magnetic fields of .1 to 5 gauss", and that is in fact the field that this responds to. I'll tell you a very interesting phenomena, when we make this white powder under controlled atmosphere and it's sitting there in a sealed tube, you can run your hand about 6 inches under the tube and the material flies around, in response to your hand 6 inches away, through the quartz tube. But if you take a magnet and put it under it nothing happens. But if you put your hand back under it, it flies around again. And because superconductivity is flowing hundreds of thousands of amps in response to the tiniest magnetic field, but when you get up to too big a magnetic field, it all stops. So it's like you step on it and it quits moving, but you let your foot off, it starts going again. It's alive. Is everybody following this? Are we all pretty close on this? Okay. Huh? Say it again? (audience question) Oh, when we make it to the monoatomic state we hydrogen reduce it, we oxidize it, hydrogen reduce it and then we anneal away the hydrogen. In the annealing with the hydrogen it goes snow white. When it's in that snow white state, under an inert gas atmosphere and we cool it down, you can actually take your hand and run it about 6 inches under the tube, you know a long distance away from it, and the material flies around inside the tube. And yet if you take a magnet and run it 6 inches under the tube, nothing happens. And yet you put the magnet down and put your hand back and it flies around again.

I doubt that Hudson believes that this biological superconductivity is the result of the "annealing" process he describes in his patent. If biological superconductivity exists as the scientific papers Hudson cites above suggest, then these same superconductive elements must be present in the air and/or water that plants are composed of.

Animals eat plants or other animals that eat plants. Plants are entirely composed of water soluble minerals and gasses from the air. This suggests that superconductive ORMUS elements must exist in water and/or in the air.

In many of his lectures David Hudson claimed that astrophysicists say there should be more rhodium and iridium in nature than we typically find on earth. Here are a couple of quotes on this from his first Dallas lecture:

"Oh, certainly, I alluded to in the presentation. That these elements are not rare. Diamonds are rare, carbon is everywhere, but diamond and carbon are the same element. You know our analytical method looks for metals, not for elements. And so, the metals are rare because the conditions to make them metallic were very unusual, but the elements are everywhere. And, I say everywhere, they should be located in, ah .... well, if you talk to a nuclear physicist he can tell you exactly in the big bang, in the creation, how much of which elements should be here on Earth, and for some reason they don't know where the rhodium and iridium are. They just don't find it here on Earth. And so they assume it's out there in space someplace, in some meteorite, and they find this unusual amount of iridium at about 65 million years ago. Well the geology that this material is in is exactly 65 million years old. And so, coincidentally, it agrees with the volcanic activity about 65 million years ago. The elements are quite plentiful particularly in volcanic areas or volcanic soil."

"What they haven't realized is that they're out there in nature, that Mother Nature created them in the belly of the Earth, and that they are here in the monoatomic form in nature. They happen to be here in exactly the ratios they're supposed to be here. They happen to be here in exactly the amount that the nuclear physicists will tell you they should be here. They are here."

Neither volcanic ash nor lava is generally considered to be an organic humate or fulvate but volcanic ash is often thought to be quite beneficial for plant growth and health, as Hudson pointed out.

This is why I think that the ORMUS in nature is extracted from rocks by fungi and bacteria in the soil. The  fungi and bacteria literally dissolve the rock so that a water soluble form can be passed into the plants. Plants do not take anything in which is not water soluble or in the air. This means that all plants and animals only ingest water or air soluble minerals.

These solubilized ORMEs from the volcanic rock source become associated with humic and fulvic molecules, probably as clathrates which are substances that hang out inside other molecules. See:


When the organic material decays, the humates and fulvates support the biological life of the soil. They also tend to support the water storage capabilities of the soil. See:


The humates/fulvates eventually get carried to the sea via springs, streams and rivers. In the ocean the ORMEs that came from rock and were dissolved by bacteria and fungi feed the life of the sea. Ocean microorganisms are finally being recognized as comprising one third of all of the earth's biomass as you can see at:

Previously I have postulated that the "superconductive" ORMUS elements in all biological systems are the key to instantaneous communication and certain energetics within these systems. You can read more about this at:


So, in brief, the "life cycle" of ORMEs might be: They start as volcanic rock dust which is dissolved by organisms in the soil and passed into plants and animals where the ORMUS provides an instantaneous communication system that also brings in energy to the plants and animals. When the plants and animals die they provide humic and fulvic materials to the soil where it is eventually eroded by creeks and rivers into the ocean where it provides the same benefits to the bacteria, plants and animals of the ocean.

A parallel "life cycle" involving the air is also a possibility where the water clathrates which are most energetic (or least shielded in organic clathrate cages) are levitated into the air by movement of streams and rivers across the earth's magnetic field. This air ORMUS is the prana/chi that energizes our breath. I would postulate that it also forms the core structure of snowflakes and provides the energy of lightning.

The best evidence that I have seen in support of the hypothesis that I have described above is the evidence of increased growth and health in plants and animals that have been given supplemental ORME nutrients from various sources. Here are some links for this evidence:


It is very unlikely that the effects on plants and animals are placebo effects and the reported effects are way beyond any similar effects from conventional nutrients.
