You are just crazy

All emzymes operate on the electon shell level. None can penetrate the electronic energy levels to reach inside the nucleus. Irregardless of how it is accomplished there is a certian amount of energy required to remove a nucleon, if you do not have sufficient energy to overcome the nuclear binding energies you cannot modify an atomic nucleus.

Ages ago I started an essay on alchemy, but never completed it. You ened MS Word to view all the footnotes and such. http://bad-sports.com/~archive/alchemy.doc

I have seen the future and this
nano-machine will be created.
Each will cost $400,658.00 to
produce. Each will be able to
create $3.37 worth of gold before
it breaks down.

I have invented a machine that converts uranium to lead. It just takes a while.
