ORMUS Getting On
This is an old item but it acts as a reminder on the topic of
monotonic gold and aspects of medieval conspiracy theories. Since
then, the shroud of Turin has been confirmed as an image produced by
a scanning process we could not replicate today but can understand.
It was in fact the resurrection garment, and let us leave it at that.
Since this interview, nothing obvious has emerged from research on
monotonic gold however strong the promise and claims and it is
certain that work has been done. So the cloud over these ideas
remain along with the original blanket claims made in the past. Of
course, marketers are exploiting the related notoriety to sell
supplements and the like.
We truly need something more substantive than what appears to be a
good story and plausibly nothing else.
best-selling author Laurence Gardner discusses the powers of white
powder gold, the Ark of the Covenant, the Knights Templar and his new
sci-fi screenplay centred around the Shroud of Turin.
interview conducted 6 November 2003
Since his latest book,
Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark, was published in February 2003,
best-selling author Sir Laurence Gardner has been giving worldwide
lectures about the rediscovery of arcane knowledge -- in particular,
the extraordinary powers of white powder gold.
When gold and
platinum-group metals are transformed into the monatomic state, a
fine white powder is produced. This substance was used by pharaohs
and kings of the ancient world. It was also part of the secret
knowledge of mediaeval alchemy and the Knights Templar. Research on
this has been forging ahead, and some amazing properties of high-spin
monatomic elements have now been scientifically confirmed.
This has huge and
potentially revolutionary implications. Humanity now has within its
reach a potential cure for cancer without drugs or surgery, an
environment-friendly alternative to fossil fuels, a means to
transform human consciousness, the possibility of low or zero-gravity
flight, space travel by manipulation of space-time, and access to
other dimensions (which scientists have now proved to be real).
In this interview
conducted at Growing Needs Bookshop in Glastonbury, England, Laurence
talked about some of the latest developments in this field. We began
by discussing how news of its use as a cure for cancer has begun to
spread to the mainstream environment.

HEALING AND ANTIGRAVITY
Laurence Gardner (LG):
I've been talking about gold as an effective catalyst in cancer
treatment for a long time-and it is now happening. The World Gold
Council is confirming this in its literature, and the Securities &
Exchange Commission, Washington, DC, is now publishing it in its
bullion prospectus. The S&EC also reports on other aspects that I
have written about in the past. Future applications for gold, it says
[reads from S&EC prospectus], "are in pollution control,
clean energy generation and fuel cell technology. In addition, work
is under way on the use of gold in cancer treatment".
Atasha McMillan (AM):
Are the research tests for this being done mostly in America?
LG: They're being done
all over. Scientific journals from Switzerland, Germany, Italy,
Spain, France, Singapore, Israel, Britain and America are all
commenting in this regard, with headlines such as "The Amazing
Properties of Monatomic Gold". There are no limitations on this
now. Singapore University is making great progress with gold in
cancer treatment, and Rice University, Texas, has reported amazing
success in recent remedial trials with nano-gold.
AM: You've said that
monatomic elements can be used in connection with space travel. Can
you explain a bit more about that, and about how research in that
area is progressing?
transition-group elements were classified some time ago as "exotic
matter" because they have a negative energy density and the
ability to manipulate space-time. Physicists now say that exotic
matter is the key to travelling enormous distances-seemingly faster
than the speed of light, but with an acceleration rate of zero. They
are looking at the concept of moving the space instead of the
spacecraft-that is to say, contracting space-time in front of the
ship, with a commensurate expansion of the space-time behind it.
NASA's Breakthrough Propulsion Physics Project is leading the
research in this regard. We also have the aircraft industry
investigating the concept of antigravity flight. Monatomic
elements are operative high-temperature superconductors, and
superconductors will levitate. They have a null magnetic field and
will repel external magnetic fields. The Center for Advanced Study in
Illinois has classified superconductivity as "the most
remarkable physical property in the universe".
So, as the UK Ministry
of Defence has stated, "Anti-gravity propulsion is now coming
out of the closet". In this arena, Boeing is working on Project
Grasp at its top-secret Phantom Works in Seattle, and British
Aerospace has its parallel Project Greenglow. There is also a new
UK-US joint venture called Project Falcon. Back in August ,
British Aerospace and Boeing met at the Pentagon to talk about their
plan for a 6,000-miles-per-hour aircraft-that's around five times the
speed of the now redundant Concorde.
AM: You have also
mentioned the prospect of teleporting matter from one place to
LG: Yes; nanophysics
and monatomic sciences are now leading us into some astonishing new
realms. NASA and the Ohio Aerospace Institute are talking about
teleportation as if it's just around the corner. By the use of
coupled quantum systems, they'll soon be able to teleport matter
instead of moving it physically. "By this means," they say,
"even people could be transported by sending enough classical
So, by the time we get
round to the kind of high-speed antigravity aircraft they think they
can produce, we might not even need aircraft! In fact, they say that
a digital cloning process is also possible-meaning that we could
actually be in more than one place at the same time!
AM: And yet the
ancient people knew about these things?
LG: They certainly
knew about monatomic elements and superconductors, even if they
didn't understand the science behind them. There were various
names and terms for these phenomena in different cultures. As for the
scientific aspects, maybe they didn't know specifically that these
magical powders resonated with DNA or that they were immune system
enhancers but they undoubtedly knew of their healing and anti-ageing
properties. They also told of levitation, movement into parallel
dimensions, communication with gods, and the like. In so many
instances, their descriptions were commensurate with modern
scientific discoveries; they just used different terminology. They
might not have known precisely what they were dealing with, but they
clearly knew about the substances in action.
AM: You said at a
recent lecture that monatomics could improve memory and learning
LG: Absolutely. In
fact, some remarkable tests were conducted last year by the
Alphalearning Institute at the World Trade Center in Lugano. They are
specialists in behavioural sciences and learning deficiencies such as
dyslexia and ADHD. Over a number of weeks, they gave measured doses
of monatomic supplements to ten volunteers-males and females of
varying ages. The results were quite staggering. Their EEG brain
scans showed a significant enhancement of alpha waves, leading to
perfect hemispheric left and right brain synchronisation. This
facilitates heightened learning ability, memory and creative skills,
and a substantial lowering of the stress factor. Their report stated
that the results were both immediate and cumulative, while being a
significant aid in exam-type situations, whether mental or physical.
ARK OF THE COVENANT
AND THE TEMPLARS
AM: Was the Ark of the
Covenant connected to the white powder of gold?
LG: Yes; it was all
part of the same sequence in Exodus -- the events at Mount Sinai,
when Moses burnt the golden calf and turned it into a powder that he
fed to the Israelites.
AM: Do we know where
the Ark went?
LG: Well, from Sinai,
it was eventually taken to Jerusalem and placed in the Temple's holy
AM: Some people say it
was stolen by a son of Solomon and Sheba, and taken to Ethiopia.
LG: That was a concept
which arose in a 13th-century book called the Kebra Nagast ("The
Glory of Kings"). It was designed to cement a Judaic history for
the new royal dynasty in Ethiopia, but it was entirely fictional. It
works quite well for the modern Ethiopian tourist industry, whose
representatives say they have the Ark locked away in a crude 1960s
building at Aksum. But no one has ever seen it -- not even the
Patriarch of the region. It's just a story. What they actually have
there is a manbara tabot -- a casket that contains a venerated altar
slab. They carry this through the streets annually, beneath a draped
AM: Where did the Ark
LG: In biblical terms,
it remained in Jerusalem for many generations after King Solomon. It
is mentioned repeatedly throughout the Old Testament to the time of
the invasion by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. The Ark was then hidden by
Hilkiah, the High Priest, before the Temple was destroyed in around
At that time, the
Captain of the Temple Guard was Hilkiah's son Jeremiah, whom we
generally think of as a prophet. Prior to the Babylonian invasion,
Hilkiah instructed Jeremiah and the Guard to hide the great treasures
of Jerusalem -- the Ark, the Anointing Stone, etc. In the main, they
were secreted in tunnels beneath the Temple -- except for the Stone,
which Jeremiah subsequently carried westwards. In Ireland it became
the anointing stone of the Scots kings -- the Stone of Destiny,
transported by the kings to their new-found Scotland in the fifth
Anyway, a record was
kept of those items hidden beneath the Temple. This record was
retained within the Order of the Temple Guard, who were in effect the
original Knights Templar. Then, around 1,700 years later, the
Templars were reconstituted from French and Flemish knights after the
First Crusade. They established their base in the Mosque, which then
stood on the old Temple site, and excavated to bring up the
treasures. They knew exactly what they were looking for, and where to
left their own relics for a future generation. In 1894, from beneath
the Temple of Jerusalem foundations, British military engineers
brought up 11th- and 12th-century Templar swords, crosses and various
items from way down below the El Aqsa Mosque. So there is no doubt
that the Templars were there. Their patron, Bernard de Clairvaux,
recorded their homecoming in 1127. They were protected en route, he
said, by a military guard to safeguard them from papal interference.
Once returned to
France, the Templars became the most powerful organisation the world
has ever known. They were both influential and wealthy, establishing
the Western banking system on the Islamic model. They were bankers to
just about every royal court in Europe and, in time, developed the
concept of insurance companies in Scotland. At the same time, they
became the primary ambassadors to the Middle East.
The biggest of all
projects that the Templars undertook was the building of the great
Gothic cathedrals in France -- the Notre Dame cathedrals. Even today,
architects are in awe of the extensive, unsupported roof spans. Many
still claim that in theory they are impossible.
AM: How did they do
LG: Well, we know that
cathedral stones are highly paramagnetic, and that the Gothic arch
design further aids the antigravity thrust of the buildings. Certain
granites, sandstones and other rock types are also high in monatomic
elemental content, and we know that these elements have levitative
qualities -- especially if subjected to strong magnetism or
frequencies, which repel them. Bluestone granite, as at Stonehenge,
is a good example of a stone that can react in some opposition to
Temple, the Giza pyramids and the Gothic cathedrals all fall into a
category of "How did they do it?" They all contain gigantic
blocks of enormous weight, carried to impossible heights and
difficult locations. Even modern cranes would find such constructions
hard to replicate. But none of this is impossible if one is dealing
with stones that can be triggered to react against gravity and Earth
magnetism, somehow pushing away and thereby reducing their physical
It has been noticed in
Templar constructions, Chartres Cathedral in particular, that people
walk taller inside the buildings than they do outside. They actually
stand more erect -- pushing upwards, so to speak -- in the confines
of these magical edifices.
AM: Why did the Church
oppose the Templars?
LG: If they were
capable of such techniques, if they knew about monatomic elements and
gravity, and if they also had the Ark of the Covenant, it's hardly
surprising that they became feared by the Pope and the European
monarchs. Their patron, St Bernard, was a Cistercian abbot and, apart
from the cathedrals, loads of Cistercian abbeys were also constructed
during the same era. So there is no doubt that the Templar/Cistercian
building methods were fast as well as awesome. It's also apparent why
the Catholic Church was so resentful of the monks of Bernard's Order,
who eventually linked up with the more ancient Celtic Church in
They were in the final
throes of building the cathedrals when the Papal decree went out
against them in 1307. They were kicked out of France and the rest of
Europe, and under papal edict were to be persecuted in all Catholic
countries. England was predominantly Catholic at that time, but
Scotland wasn't -- so many of the Templars went to Scotland under the
protection of Robert the Bruce. In 1317 he established a new Order as
a cover for Templars when traveling abroad. They were known as the
Elder Brethren of the Rosy Cross. It was the original Rosicrucian
AM: I see from your
website that you belong to the Knights Templar of St Anthony. What
kind of role do the Templars play in our world now?
LG: The Knights
Templar of St Anthony is the oldest legitimate historical order of
Templars still in operation. It was founded for Mary Queen of Scots
when she came to Scotland after being Queen of France, and is still
under the protectorate of the Royal House of Stuart. In the reign of
Mary's son, King James VI, they built King James's Hospital in
Edinburgh and The Royal Hospital at Leith. In essence, they were a
socially orientated fraternity with Scottish interests at heart. It's
much the same today, really. The Order is still concerned with
Scottish traditions, culture, education and heritage.
SPECULATION ON THE
ARK'S RESTING PLACE
AM: So when the Pope
hounded the Templars out of France in 1307, did they take the Ark of
the Covenant with them to Scotland or somewhere?
LG: The last
historical record of the Ark is at Chartres Cathedral, where a relief
inscription on an entrance pillar says, "The Ark of the Covenant
was yielded from here". There is no record of it ever having
left that place. It was not buried there, taken from there or sent
anywhere from there. The word used is "yielded", which
means "given up" or "let go". I have discussed
this aspect of the Ark's history in Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark
and have presented an hypothesis. It seems perhaps a little
far-fetched but, knowing what we now know about superconductors and
monatomic elements, it is a feasible possibility.
AM: You think it was
moved into another dimension?
LG: Yes, I think so.
And when you look at the cathedral's original construction, the
set-up could have been right for this. Seventeenth-century documents
from the Académie Française and the Royal Society in London relate
that there was a great golden plate in the middle of the famous
Chartres labyrinth. Today there are just the cut brass studs which
held it in place. Also, there was a magical stone of some sort in the
roof space above it.
This was lost in the
debris of the roof fire in 1836, but was originally placed there for
some specific purpose by the Templars. If it were perhaps a stone of
monatomic iridium crystal or some other energetic superconductive
device, it could well have been triggered to the transition-group
metal below in order to create a flux-tube portal between them.
We know that the Ark
was a very powerful capacitor and, in conjunction with monatomic
elements (the manna placed in the Ark), it could become a
superconductor with its own Meissner field. Hence, as detailed in the
Torah and Talmud, it would levitate above the ground. We also know
from recent experiments with monatomic elements that they can be
heat-triggered to move out of our space-time. Bringing these things
all together, therefore, it is possible that the Ark is still at
Chartres, but simply not in our space-time -- maybe "yielded",
for want of a better term, into another parallel dimension.
AM: Things can
actually be sent into other dimensions?
LG: Yes, and brought
back. Hal Puthoff, the director of the Institute for Advanced Studies
in Austin, Texas, wrote in a report some years back that when
particles begin to resonate in two dimensions, they should lose
4/9ths of their weight [see "Gravity as a Zero-point Fluctuation
Force", Physical Review A 39(5), 1 March 1989].
Subsequent tests with
monatomic elements revealed that they, too, would lose 4/9ths of
their weight during thermo-gravimetric analysis. With increased
heating, the weight would reduce to absolute zero -- at which point
they disappeared altogether. On subsequent cooling, however, they
would return to a visible state.
We know, therefore,
that it's possible to transport matter into other dimensions. What we
don't know is the key to unlocking the Ark -- if indeed it is there
to be unlocked. Maybe it was triggered by a sound wave, maybe a light
wave; but either way we would need to know the resonance frequency.
As I said, it's just an hypothesis, but it is a possibility. In a
way, it's the sort of thing that NASA and others are now working on
with regard to the teleportation of matter, as we discussed earlier.
Arch Freemasonry -- or Royal Ark, as it used to be -- is firmly
centred on the traditional mystery of a sacred keystone and a golden
ARCANE KNOWLEDGE AND
AM: Is Arch the same
as Ark, then?
LG: In a certain
context, yes. The Greek word ark, meaning "gathering box",
is arc in English and arche in French. The Oxford Word Library
defines the word ark as an obsolete form of the modern English word
arc. It was equivalent to the Latin arca, a "chest", "box"
or "coffer". Archaeology was about a quest for the Ark.
Storage places are called archives. Ancient mysteries are called
arcane. Ark-based construction, as used by the Templars, became known
as architecture, from which we also get arch, architrave, etc.
Masonic lore was based on arcane architectural geometry, and the term
Royal Arch or Ark stemmed from this.
In Lost Secrets of the
Sacred Ark, I've included a colour plate of Templars in 1147, twenty
years after they returned from Jerusalem. The painting, from the
Château de Versailles, depicts them with the Ark of the Covenant at
the Paris Chapter House.
AM: An idea that goes
round a lot is that the world is really ruled by secret societies.
What do you think of that?
LG: I don't really see
that as being the case. There are societies, fraternities and
establishments which are secretive, and many of our prominent leaders
belong to them, but I don't see the groups themselves as running
anything. They just provide venues of mutual interest at which to
meet. For example, one might say that numerous of our governors are
Freemasons. By implication, therefore, we are governed by Freemasons
-- but that does not mean their individual or combined lodges control
the world. They do not. I know many politicians who are members of
the British Library and indeed often meet there. But that does not
mean we are ruled by a cabal of book readers. I have been a Freemason
and a British Library member, but I've never controlled anyone.
AM: So, are you a
LG: Not any more. For
many years I was affiliated with the City of London financial sector,
and it was part of the scene to belong to a City lodge. It was just
the same as being expected to fraternise in this or that wine bar.
Business and trades people do much the same at a provincial level,
belonging to the local Rotary Club, Round Table or whatever. They all
provide venues for those with common interests, but these
associations do not run the world -- even if some of their individual
members have a hand in that regard. If a Scout leader happens to run
someone down in his car, it doesn't mean that the Scouts are training
terrorists! It simply doesn't work that way.
Anyway, after some
twenty years in Freemasonry, I resigned in 1984 -- mainly because I
got thoroughly bored with it all. I had expected to learn such a lot,
but actually learned nothing of much consequence except how to
perform ceremonial ritual. I suppose if one wants somewhere to be
every Monday night and a group of people to be with, then it provides
a suitably fraternal environment. But, in the end, I found better
things to do.
All I really
discovered in terms of "secrets" was that their biggest
secret is that they've forgotten what their secrets are! Even the
ritual maintains that the true secrets of the Craft were lost long
ago. What I never experienced was anything covert in the way that one
imagines a secret society. So, either it wasn't there, or it was very
cleverly concealed from me for twenty years.
There are, however,
secretive aspects of government that I really don't like. Elected
politicians are supposed to represent and report to their electorate,
not keep secrets from them.
Take the Bilderberg
Group, for example. Industrialists, bankers and whoever are perfectly
entitled to meet and discuss things which they are not required to
disclose publicly afterwards. We all have such meetings in our daily
lives, but don't feel the need to broadcast everything we've
discussed with our colleagues.
What I object to is
that our elected representatives do attend such meetings, but then
consider their electorate irrelevant -- perhaps keeping secret
certain information which they should pass on. Maybe they feel that
insider knowledge gives them an edge for their power base. But that
really bothers me. Do they emerge in a position whereby they're
working for themselves and their colleagues, and not necessarily for
us? I'm pretty sure that's often the case.
So, it's a matter of
getting those in positions of elected influence to recognise that
their responsibility is to be servants of society and not to lord it
AM: How do you think
that could be managed?
LG: We keep hearing
these politicians issuing statements such as, "And when we came
to power..." Power! Who gave them power? They represent us. We
appoint them. We pay their salaries. I think the whole political
structure needs to be reviewed. Throughout the so-called democratic
world, we have allowed a reversal of the way things are supposed to
be. We ask for guardianship, protection and economic management, but
they give us laws, restrictions and controls. They totally ignore
national written constitutions which "belong" to the people
and whose terms and conditions they are supposed to uphold.
But whose fault is
that? It is our fault. We have allowed it to happen. What we have to
understand is that the politicians will not change unless we make
them change. It's our car, and they are our chauffeurs. What we want
is an adequate ride, not to be told how to sit.
Nor do we want them
keeping secrets -- like, we're going to run out of gas at the next
turn. But, as I said, they won't change voluntarily from a position
that suits them. We have to change them by making our demands fully
FROM DIANA TO THE
KABBALAH AND BEYOND
AM: What do you think
of the Paul Burrell book about Princess Diana that's recently come
LG: I've read some of
it. And I've read bits and pieces serialised in the press. From what
I can see, there doesn't seem to be much that's new or unexpected.
What is interesting is that it's coming from a close-to-home,
in-house perspective rather than from an outside biographer.
AM: Do you think
Burrell is telling the truth?
LG: I have no reason
to doubt it. I don't see that he has any particular, underhand
motive. I think perhaps, if he had been treated differently by the
Establishment, he might have thought twice about some of the content.
But, under the circumstances, he clearly decided to publish anyway.
I've not seen anything particularly offensive against the Royal
Family in his work. In fact, it's taken the edge off things to some
extent. Many people were looking quite harshly at Prince Philip, for
example, whereas, according to Burrell, Philip's relationship with
Diana wasn't that bad.
What I do like about
Burrell's book is that it has, once again, prevented the Princess
from being conveniently airbrushed from the historical scene, as many
AM: So that's the
Burrell book. How would you describe your own writing motivations?
LG: I feel that,
because of what I research and write, I have a particular
responsibility to the readers of my work. This means that when I
discover interesting or important things I feel obliged to pass on
the information. So that's my primary consideration. Apart from the
fact that I enjoy my work, I have the advantage of being a totally
free agent. I am not running for any office, nor bound to any master
-- so the only people I need to please are my readers.
AM: Where do you do
all your research? Is it all publicly available?
LG: There's very
little that isn't publicly available. And if it isn't, I make it
publicly available by writing it. The main problem is not lack of
accessibility, but of how easily accessible some things might be. I
might find something that's available in some monastery in Tibet --
so it's publicly available, but how accessible is that for you?
Researching and writing is what I do, just like other people are
lawyers, carpenters or whatever. So, I just get stuck in and work at
it, following the leads like a detective of sorts, trying to discover
"who done it and to whom".
AM: Do you have any
idea what you're going to do next?
LG: Each book in my
Grail series has been designed to answer the most asked questions
that arose from the previous one. So I'll be continuing on the same
basis. I've been travelling a lot during past months, but am planning
to write the next book this year. In previous editions, I have dealt
with Grail-related religion, history, mythology and science. The next
book will look more closely at philosophies such as the Grail Code
and Kabbalah. Also, a lot has happened on various scientific fronts
since I wrote Lost Secrets, so I'll be including some updates in this
regard and very possibly getting back into some of the sacred
geometry that I introduced in the first edition of Bloodline of the
Right now, however, I
am currently involved with the making of a Hollywood movie based on
Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark. We are casting now and should begin
shooting in the summer, so that will be pretty time-consuming this
year. It has also been suggested that I should write a novel to
parallel the film. So that's another possibility if I have the time.
AM: What kind of film
LG: The Hollywood
Reporter has classified it as a "sci-fi adventure", which
just about sums it up. It's an action thriller, based essentially in
modern Los Angeles, but embodies many scientific aspects from Lost
Secrets: time warping, parallel dimensions and the like. In general
terms, it concerns the historical and current aspects of monatomic
elements, but within the wrap of a fictional story.
AM: Can you tell us
anything about the story?
LG: There's a related
page on my website, with a link to the production company's site.
Basic information and progress updates are being posted as we go.
Currently, there's a scene-setting video trailer online, prepared by
Living Element Pictures of Los Angeles, but this will be replaced
with something more directly representative in time.
The film is currently
under the working title, The Christian, and the basic format for the
story is given as follows [he reads from a promotional poster]:
"Since the inception of the DNA Crime Lab in San Diego,
California, over 592 crimes have been solved by DNA match. But one
puzzling case remains a mystery. May 16, 2003 -- a 30-year-old white
male, identified only as Chris Doe, was arrested on burglary charges
in LA County and later released on $1,000 bail. Chris Doe has a
positive DNA match to the Shroud of Turin. He is now wanted for
questioning by the authorities and by the scientific community."
AM: I read an
interesting book called The Second Messiah, which says that the image
on the Shroud of Turin is really of Jacques de Molay.
LG: That's a book by
Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas -- one of a number of suggestions
about the Shroud. Others reckon it might be Leonardo da Vinci.
Various ideas have been put forward over the years, but the
traditional view is that the Shroud was the burial cloth of Jesus.
The weave of the cloth and the type of material are certainly old
enough, and pollen has been found embedded which is undoubtedly
Syrian. At present, no one really knows the true origin of the
Shroud, and even scientists argue about various aspects of its
For our film purposes,
however, we are concerned only with the DNA analysis of the blood
embedded in the cloth, and with the blood group. These have been
specifically identified, and the DNA tests were done in the 1990s at
the University of Texas. The information is actually held on file by
the San Diego DNA Crime Lab, so it ties in rather well with our
In a recent email
about this film project, Laurence said: "All is going well to
the extent that the film producers have now also optioned my other
three books. It rather looks now as if screenplays will become very
much a part of my life as well as writing books."?
