A Report on the Russell Science Research Team's Transmutation of Nitrogen into Lithium and Helium by Ron Kovac
Vol. 3, No. 2, December 1994


The following article, written by Ron Kovac, reports on the results of what the Russell Science Research (RSR) Colorado team of Ron Kovac, Toby Grotz, and Dr. Timothy Binder refer to as the 5Li experiment. The 5Li experiment is the second generation transmutation research experiment conducted by the RSR Colorado team. Ordinary nitrogen (14N: nitrogen with atomic #7 and atomic mass 14) was successfully transformed into 5Li (lithium with atomic #3 and atomic mass 5) and 4He (helium with atomic #4 and atomic mass 4)!

In 1927, Dr. Walter Russell successfully converted water to 14.9% hydrogen, 16.0% oxygen, and 69.1% nitrogen (see A New Concept of the Universe, p. 130 and Fulcrum V1, #2). In 1992-1993, the RSR Colorado team verified Dr. Walter Russell's transmutation concepts when they produced fluorine from water vapor. The results of the RSR Colorado team's 1992/1993 first generation transmutation experiments were published in Fulcrum, Vol. 1, #2.

The first generation experiment utilized water injected evacuated quartz tubes which were subsequently heated, placed in magnetic fields, allowed to cool while in the magnetic field, and then qualitatively analyzed with an emission spectroscope. The externally applied magnetic fields established shaped potential gradients within the quartz tubes that, according to Russell Cosmogony - dual-polarity control - gyroscopic plane of rotation concepts, would reshape/reconfigure the atoms centripetal/centrifugal vortices to produce the appearance of a different atom - transmutation!

The second generation experiments utilized nitrogen injected evacuated quartz tubes. These tubes are internally fit with electrodes to produce an internal electric field and with a perforated glass partition (frit) to introduce a vortexian shape to the electric field. External magnetic fields were also used to further define and shape the internal nitrogen plasma vortex fields.

In an addendum to Ron Kovac's report, Dr. Binder elaborates on the concepts and principles from the Russell Cosmogony that are evidenced in the 5Li experiment. Fulcrum has the honor of being the first to publish the results of these revelatory experiments which were first announced at this past September's USP Homecoming. We can now expect the scientific community to finally recognize the Russell Cosmogony and pray for the peaceful and immediate application of Dr. Russell's concepts into business, industry, and our everyday lives. Our civilization now has the tools to live peaceably and sustainably!

To establish reader interest, the author announces the following conclusion of this paper: 4He (the commonly accepted ashes of cold fusion) was obtained at 3.75% concentration of the parent gas, nitrogen (14N). Even more profound: THE "MISSING LINK" element, 5Li was created in the same apparatus. Standard literature (see p. 23) proclaims that there is no element of atomic weight 5. The cold fusion process that gave these results uses only plasma of N2 and magnetic shaping. The plasma tube has no constrictions or capillary fusion facility. The plasma tube has only two needle point stainless steel electrodes, no platinum, nickel or palladium cathodes. The 5Li was obtained at 2.50% level of the parent gas 14N. 

The creation of this never before found element (the long sought missing element of the periodic or nucleonic tables) is offered by the author as a strong support for the notion that cold fusion, ultra sub-atomic particles, gravity, electricity, and magnetism are each only a consequence of space moving in special interrelated geometric formations. If glass, rarefied nitrogen and electricity or magnetism can cause cold fusion (4He "ashes" - see p. 21) and transmute or create the new missing element 5Li (see pp. 21-22), then only geometry of motion of space is involved.

The history began with the Fleischman-Pons type cell drawn below. The construction and components of this cell inspire fusion thinking because of the heavy water (D2O) and exotic metal elements. But later work shown at the end of this report indicates almost any materials can be used to cause "cold fusion". Randell Mills and Stephen Kniezys noticed you do not need heavy water, ordinary water would do with the addition of potassium salts. Dutch Shell discovered you don't need water or palladium, and that stainless steel and regular hydrogen would even work in a spark chamber arrangement. Here we see a clue that maybe this effect is much broader in scope than a simple nuclear explanation. After all, the more information we get the more classical fusion seems to fail as an explanation. Perhaps our perception of classical fusion theory was too narrow in scope. Maybe this was a consequence of the fact that our test instruments were based on detecting fast moving particles more than particles at rest. (Geiger counters, scintillation counters, etc. require the particle move through the medium of the detector leaving a trail of ionization. Likewise, cloud chamber, bubble chamber, etc.) What about the particles that might have a very slow velocity, kind of floating around, not causing any disturbance, but available for molecular or atomic interaction?

"To catch a polar bear you must go north and cut a hole in the ice. Then you must put little green peas around the hole. When you see the polar bear come up to the location and bend over to take a pea, you rush up behind him (or her) and kick him (or her) in the ice hole." Don't try this since it is not true! The truth is a polar bear can smell a human 20 miles away. There will be no sneaking up on a polar bear until its time! (source: Hal and Charlie Show, "Fun Facts", 630 on your AM radio dial, July '94, Boulder CO.)

On this cold fusion, what we need is a polar bear nose that can smell the slow moving particles. In this way, we can get the whole picture, not just special cases. GOOD NEWS: we have one! It is a machine like a bookkeeper with a third eye! It is called a QUADRAPOLE MASS SPECTROMETER, .... A.K.A....... a residual gas analyzer (RGA). Unfortunately, again, only the wealthy can afford the device. Fortunately, a person is only limited by their creative ability. In this manner, I was able to pull in favors, extort people, recycle parts, and otherwise behave in such a manner too despicable and incriminating to mention here until I had created the mechanical atrocity pictured on the cover of this issue of Fulcrum. In spite of its appearance and the age of some of its components, the Mass Spec or RGA works well

Computer printouts of the RGA appear on pages 21 & 22. Page 21 shows the first experiment and the appearance of 4He and 5Li. The top of page 22 shows an analysis of the N2 bottled gas verifying the absence of any 5Li, and the bottom of page 22 shows the result after processing a sample through the fields twice, note the lines at atomic mass 5 (5Li) and at atomic mass 14 (14N). The relative heights of the lines represent relative quantities. 

In addition, two types of emission spectrometers were employed. The first was a Varian 175 atomic absorption spectrophotometer with custom parts added to facilitate its use as an emission spec. The second is an energy inventory device for 360 lambda to 800 lambda wavelength. The second might lead to photovoltaic interfacing info. Transmutation indication was evident from earlier experiments with Toby Grotz and Dr. Tim Binder using these devices (see Fulcrum V1, #2).

The late physics nobel Laureate Julian Schwinger of UCLA predicted the creation of 5Li from cold fusion.

Ironically, in 182, Karl Gauss postulated a simple geometry which explains gravity, electricity, magnetism, sub-atomic structure (from which the Sommerfield fine structure constant can be derived) and which explains the catenoid and pseudosphere geometry involved in matter formation.

Walter Russell from 1926 to 1960 was describing the same geometry of motion and, as a world class architect, sculptor and painter, left a very clear record of what he called The Wave of Creation.

I presented a paper reporting on the success of emission spectroscopy plasma experiments which supported the ideas of Gauss and Russell at the 1994 International Symposium on New Energy, Denver, CO. At that time, I promised to follow up the work with a mass spec. or RGA which gives more definitive data. This paper reports on the follow up (i.e., the application of Gauss and Russell ideas to gravity and cold fusion, with the addition of TOROID KNOT IDEA which is my own).

It is this author's opinion that plasma shaping simulates the space bending described by Gauss and Russell as it applies to cold fusion and assume the plasma rotates and compresses like the rubber band of a toy airplane as you continue to wind the propeller. At first you get only a spiral catenoid shaped rubber band. If you continue to put motion into the system by continuing to wind the rubber band, the wound rubber band starts to form "knots" in the windings. The author claims that this knot is like a toroid at the center of the rubber band (catenoid), and that this knot, by analogy, represents the formation of ultra sub-atomic particles which radiate their energy as electromagnetic force or coalesce into the sub-atomic particles of today's classical atomic physics. The toroids of fast moving, tightly compressed or wound space have the option of axially radiating energy or continuing the toroid motion (as mass). Either way, more space is consumed by compression at that location (the center of mass). As more space rushes in to fill the void left by the winding/compression, a flow of space to the center of mass is created. As this flow of space rushes past nearby mass, it pushes that center of mass towards the first center of mass.

In this way, the flow of space to the centers of mass becomes gravity between the centers of mass. The weight of any atom group per unit volume then would be related to what rate that group creates space bending (or consumption of space motion). Two flexible rubber hoses submerged in the water of a fish aquarium, each having a separate pump at the other end of the hose, would pump water out of the tank at different rates depending on how fast each pump was running and the diameter of each hose. Both hose ends (ideally) would end up sucking the other end into itself (like gravity attraction) which is really the water flow pushing the hose ends together. The hose with the faster pump would be causing faster flow, have more pull, and by analogy would have more weight per unit volume (assuming the hoses were the same diameter).

With regard to cold fusion, the author simply put the toroid complexes back into the hostile space bending location where they could unravel (radiate energy) into their neighbor or borrow energy from their neighbor unraveling to cause whatever net energy consumption or radiation and transformations. This changing is only possible at low net energy levels of cold fusion if the proper space bending (squeezing together of the toroids - torquing the toroids with space motion nearby) is present. The space bending can be accomplished by the physical boundary imposition of the inside walls of a microscopic cavity on the surface of a catalytic metal like Ni, Fe, Pd, Pt, etc.. This space bending can be accomplished any number of ways yet to be discovered, like the magnetic fields of the author's device or the capillary walls of the author's glass frit fusion cell (of the May '94 New Energy Symposium) or the ceramic sintered frit of the Japan device. Remember, a sintered frit might be a proton conductor but it also has a capillary hole surface.

The MAIN POINT IS THAT EACH DESIRED CHANGE HAS A SPECIFIC GEOMETRY OF SPACE BENDING TO ACHIEVE THAT CHANGE. The math associated with the Karl Gauss geometry is presented in Winter '94, 21st Century by Lawrence Hecht. The geometry envisioned by Walter Russell is available through the University of Science and Philosophy, Swannanoa, Virginia.

A spark hitting a stainless target like the Shell device can create a capillary dent and the required magnetic field to initiate the space flow of the proper geometry to cause available hydrogen to undergo cold fusion. The number of dents would be easy to regulate as would the cold fusion as would the life and output of the cell.

In all this, the unique contribution of the author is the toroidal knot idea added to Russell/Gauss geometry along with experimental evidence, which until now was not available. The author's experiments show a cold fusion cell does not need water, metal, or even electricity for ion transport. The author's cold fusion cell used only a gas and magnetism to create 5Li. This does not mean a plasma or electricity wouldn't help. It simply means the geometry of space bending is the fundamental mechanism. It is fascinating to think the latest photos from the Hubble telescope (called a new mystery) of object 1987-A could be explained in the same way. This is also true of the new laser star telescope photos of the ORION nebula. Both of these objects show proper geometry as well as proper toroid location, as well as proper energy radiation direction to agree with this theory.
