Orders are being shipped but it’s slow going at the moment. However things are getting faster.
We have shipped a lot of Septembers pulverized orders but there are several hundred grams of Septembers orders still outstanding before we can move onto Octobers orders. However we’re manufacturing a higher percentage of carbon 60 in the soot and we’re producing more fullerene soot at the same time.
In the beginning we were forced to go slowly and only produced small quantities of C60, but now we’re producing multiple times that.
The new reactor is still being built. It’s a very different design from our current one and will produce at least 4 times more than our current reactor. Then we’ll have two reactors on the job. The new reactor should arrive within two weeks.
In a way, the first (current) reactor was really only a test vessel so we could understand what the design of the next reactor should be. After we take delivery of the new reactor, we’ll order another reactor and probably end up with 5 which should be enough for now. Each reactor should only take a few weeks to build thanks to our marvelous engineers!
This is why it’s difficult to predict when customers will get their order because we’re now producing a greater percentage of C60/soot than we were two weeks ago, we’re also producing more fullerene soot, the new reactor will soon come online and a few weeks after that, another reactor will come online.
So if we tell someone their order will be ready in 6 weeks- that would mean 6 weeks at the grams per hour we are currently producing.
But in two weeks our output will be much more than what it is now, so how do we predict where we’ll be in two weeks?
But regardless, from the smallest to the largest, everything is being updated, upgraded and perfected on a continual basis. Nothing stands still in our lab for long! Some might say we fix things until they break! Ok sometimes.
Fun fact- we believe for every 100 grams of carbon 60 produced, roughly 80 years of extra life is the result. That’s maybe 8 people with 10 years extra life or 4 people with 20 years of extra life a.s.o. But we’d have to verify this.
It’s very important for the coming times that ‘old souls’ extend their life as long as possible; as they will be needed.
The (current) reactor is quite amazing- huge energy around it. We’ve now altered the design so that carbon 60 comes out already pulverized along with the soot. This will save us a lot of time and help get more orders shipped.
Price of C60AB will be about $400 for 2 grams. Thank God we have all the equipment we need for C60AB, it’s just a matter of putting it all together- i.e. after we ship C60 orders.
Last newsletter I made a mistake in that I said 12ml in a syringe contains 1 gram of C60. I meant to say 12ml contains 2 grams! 1 gram per 6ml. Any more than this is a waste of ethanol.
When using a syringe, it’s best to allow a little air into the syringe first so it can be shaken and the contents homogenized.
As we learn, the quality is continuing to improve. It’s interesting because when you place C60 in a flask with a high vacuum, it acts like a liquid- you can tell immediately it’s not soot because the volume and flow of C60 is far higher. In the beginning we were producing small quantities of C60 within the soot. In a flask under high vacuum, the soot looked flat. But now C60 constitutes the bulk of the soot and it flows and has massive volume compared to the soot.
We’ve taken delivery of a cyclone separator and it’s saving us a lot of time gleaning fullerene soot from the reactor. Problems with separation equipment are now solved and we’re moving forward.
After calcination, your salt should now be a slightly yellowish orange or red color.
Place the salt in a glass vessel which is about three times taller than it is wide. Pour the maceration liquid over the salts, about 10 – 12 times the quantity. A good flask will be about 1/3 full.
Now seal the flask and place it near a heat source for example near a radiator, on top of a fridge near the back where heat rises, or near a window in summer. A ‘circulation’ should now occur and you should see droplets of alcohol (mercury) forming at the top of the flask and falling back down into the liquid.
The liquor will become discolored. When further discoloration ceases, gather and filter the salts and then calcine them again. Always place a lid on the calcination dish. Let the crucible cool down and then add the salts back into the maceration liquid and begin another circulation.
You should keep going with circulations/calcinations until there is no discoloration of the maceration liquid. At each cycle the salts become charged with impurities which are removed by calcination. But the salt is also getting charged with positive elements which are ‘fixed’ by the circulations and resist fire.
At each cycle, the power of the elixir increases until the salt is saturated with positive elements.
