Mercury can disrupt the plans of the elite.

When you hear the word "mercury", what thoughts come up first in your head? Danger! Poison! Anxiety!

Yes, it was these ideas that the parents laid down in us, and from school textbooks, we know that mercury vapors can cause irreparable harm to health. There is even criminal liability for the storage of this substance, which is clearly spelled out in article 234 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

But why is mercury so demonized? Why today everything is being done so that we are very afraid even to come into contact with it? Maybe in order that we, God forbid, not do it ?: ...

Our ancestors were well acquainted with mercury. She was attributed to magical properties, actively used in alchemy and medicine. For her captured states and cities. For example, according to one of the versions, the great Genghis Khan decided to conquer Fergana precisely because of the fact that mercury production was established in this city.

And in the writings of the ancient Roman writer Pliny, there is an indication that in those days Rome bought four and a half tons of mercury in Spain.

Over the centuries-old history, mercury has also been associated with the philosopher's stone. "Give me a sea of ​​mercury, and I will turn it gold." And these words are no ancient alchemist there, but a mastodon of classical physics, the great Isaac Newton. This scientist devoted 30 years of his adult life to the study of alchemy and mercury, in particular. He has classified all his research in this area with encryption.

All these facts indicate that our ancestors greatly appreciated mercury.

In the second half of the 20th century, this substance had a wide practical application. It was used in tons, in various spheres of life both in our country and in other parts of the world. In medicine as well.

But at some point, everything changed, and today the whole Internet screams about the horrors that will happen to a person inhaled by mercury vapor. But wait! If mercury is so poisonous, then how has it not been noticed for centuries of history?

Today, more than 20 mercury minerals are known, but Cinnabar is its main source.

Mercury is obtained by distillation. But there is another, more rude way. The red stones are simply heated in a furnace until the minerals begin to crack and mercury flows out of them. It seems that this method of mercury extraction was used by our ancestors.

Cinnabar itself is an absolutely safe mountain mineral, just like mercury in its purest form. Only its compounds with other substances can be toxic. For example, methyl mercury is one of the most dangerous neurotoxins. There are other toxic compounds, for example, with arsenic.

The safety of pure mercury is unquestionable. It is known that people who work directly with pure mercury do not even bother

some kind of security, protective clothing. Look, this person takes the mercury in his mouth and nothing happens to him. And this one simply puts one's hand into liquid metal and is not afraid to die a horrible death.

But if mercury is harmless, why are they scaring us like that? Let's figure it out.

The unique properties of mercury interested not only researchers of the distant past. For example, in the USSR, in the 80s, rumors of the amazing capabilities of mercury antennas were actively roaming among radio amateurs. In the year 89, they even wrote about this in the magazine Radio. Everything was terribly easy. Mercury was poured into a chemical flask or glass from a light bulb and placed a panicle of copper in half a meter long aluminum wires. The neck was sealed with putty or bitumen. The whole structure was mounted on a wooden mast. From the copper panicle down the cable drop to the radio. According to testers, it was possible to catch almost anything on such an antenna.

Forbidden mercury engine can be assembled in the garage!

Recently, one experiment lover decided to repeat the experiment and make an antenna using mercury. Tests have shown that the antenna really works fine.

An amazing situation with a mysterious substance called "red mercury". Much has been written about it in ancient treatises. This substance was called "red lion" or "philosophical mercury" and attributed to him all the properties of the philosopher's stone.

This topic was particularly active in the times of perestroika when the secret archives of the Soviet Union were opened. It is believed that in the 60s red mercury could be synthesized in secret laboratories and sold abroad at a price of half a million dollars per kilogram. There were also those who were able to cash in on the interest of people to red mercury.
