In 1936, workers uncovered what are now known as 2,000 year old “Baghdad batteries” in the village of Khuyut Rabbou’a. The bright golden-looking clay pots had a 5 five inch copper sharded disk on the bottom, and a cylindrical rods in the center. Refined elemental rods such as gold, silver and copper were found placed in the pots. The center rods were always left corroded, as if the elements were used in “some sort of electroplating process”. Even more interesting, the Baghdad batteries were electrically hooked in series. The ancient Egyptians actually had electricty!
What’s known as natural earth batteries, were recently used to power our telegraph system in the 1800’s. An Earth battery is a pair of electrodes made of two dissimilar metals, such as iron and copper, which are buried in the soil or immersed in the sea. Earth batteries act as water activated batteries and if the plates are sufficiently far apart, they can tap telluric currents. The very word “Alchemy” is derived from two ancient Egyptian words, “Al” & “Khemet”. Al means “from” & “Khemet,’’ Egypt. It’s common knowledge that modern chemistry is derived from the mystical alchemists of the ancient world.
The most modern famous chemist of our time, Sir Isaac Newton translated the mysterious Emerald Tablets of Thoth the Atlantean. The Emerald Tablets, also known as the Smaragdine Table, or Tabula Smaragdina, are a compact cryptic pieces of Hermetica reputed to contain the secret of the prima materia and its transmutation. It was highly regarded by European alchemists as the foundation of their art and its Hermetic tradition.
The original source of the Emerald Tablet is unknown. Although Hermes Trismegistus (also known as Thoth the Atlantean) is the author named in the text. Its first known appearance is in a book written in Arabic between the sixth and eighth centuries. The text was first translated into Latin in the twelfth century. Numerous translations, interpretations and commentaries followed. The text of the Smaragdine Tablet gives its author as Hermes Trismegistus (“Hermes the Thrice-Greatest”), a legendary Hellenistic combination of the Greek God Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth. The oldest documentable source of the text is the Kitāb sirr al-ḫalīqa (Book of the Secret of Creation and the Art of Nature), itself a composite of earlier works. This volume is attributed to “Balinas” (or Pseudo-Apollonius of Tyana) who wrote sometime around the eighth century. In his book, Balinas frames the Emerald Tablets as ancient Hermetic wisdom. He tells his readers that he discovered the text in a vault below a statue of Hermes in Tyana, and that, inside the vault, an old corpse on a golden throne held the emerald tablets. Following Balinas, an early version of the Emerald Tablets appeared in Kitab Ustuqus al-Uss al-Thani (Second Book of the Elements of Foundation) attributed to Jabir ibn Hayyan. The tablets were known by different names throughout the ancient world. Another version known as the The Smaragdine Tablet was first translated into Latin in the twelfth century by Hugo von Santalla. The text is also in an enlarged thirteenth century edition of Secretum Secretorum(also known as Kitab Sirr al-Asrar)
Legend has it, when the Egyptian God Thoth ruled over Egypt, he presented a gift to the common people of Khem (Egypt.) Thoth called it “Manna,” in his Emerald Tablets. Manna is known as purplish liquid known to heal all diseases. Coincidentally, true colloidal gold is purple in color. References to Manna can also be found in the Secrets of the Ark of the Covenant, as well as the stories of the Holy Grail, Ormus, the Milk of Ishtaar, The Philosopher’s Stone as well as many other legends within biblical texts.
Using the Scientific Method
In 1861, Thomas Graham found that certain solutions would pass through a membrane, and others would not. He found a stable, intermediate state of matter and was able to describe it. Graham’s discovery was that substances could enter a solution in such a manner that they exhibit characteristics that are quite different from those of a true solution. He applied the term “colloidal” (from kolla = glue) to this intermediate state, because glue, gelatin, and related substances were the most obvious to him as being in this unique state.
The Swiss botanist Von Nageli recorded one of the amazing discoveries of the nineteenth century in 1869. Von Nageli coined the term oligodynamic to describe the microbiocidal properties of a metal hydrosol (e.g. copper, silver, and tin) at minute concentrations. In 1884, Crede introduced the use of 1 percent silver nitrate for the prevention of ophthalmia neonatorum. By 1897, silver nitrate began to be used in America to prevent blindness in newborns, and it is still used today. By 1910, Henry Crookes had documented that certain metals, when in a colloidal state, had strong germicidal action but were harmless to human beings. The oligodynamic concept has motivated the development of many antimicrobial processes and products.
During the last century, advances in pharmacological manufacturing methods sought to harness this time-valued strategy that is expressed in nearly all silver formulations. Early manufacturing methods rarely created high-quality, homogenous, oligodynamic Ag+. Nevertheless, more than 96 different silver medicinals (many used intravenously) were in use prior to 1939, as documented by The Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry of the American Medical Association.
A project begun at the State University of New York by Robert Becker and associates involved a silver nylon product in the early 1970s. This project was originally instigated in order to find an electromagnetic shield. Instead, it led to the revolutionary discoveries by Becker of silver’s unique antimicrobial properties, and his discovery that silver ions could induce fibrocytes to dedifferentiate into stem cells and back again. One of Becker’s research associates, A. Bart Flick, continued work in this area for professional and commercial applications. As a result, Flick has filed patents in 1994, 1996, and 2000 for silver-based wound dressings that are far superior to anything that has ever been available before. He has also obtained approval for these dressing from the US Food and Drug Administration. Because of the success of these silver dressings, many other medical product manufacturers have filed for their own parallel products.
