**The Magnesium MPA**

The magnesium MPA is a tetrahedral array of four similar funnels, Each funnel contains three identical segments, each containing three similar ovoids (Mg12) enclosing twelve UPAs. An Mg12 group is made up of three spheres enclosing two UPAs (N2), seven UPAs (I7) and three UPAs (H3).

**Magnesium MPA =
4[3(3Mg12)].

The MPA is formed from two Mg^{12} nuclei, which provide 432 subquarks — the same number
as the number of UPAs. The 108 subquarks in eight u and eight d quarks are present in each funnel, each Mg12
containing the twelve subquarks in two u and d quarks. The N2 is an X-Y bound state, the I7 is a bound state of
three X and four Y subquarks (actually the mirror state I7′ of the I7 group found in the iodine MPA) and the H3 is
a u quark:

Mg12 = N2 + I7 + H3

= X-Y + 3X-4Y + + u.

(see diagram below). The disintegration diagram confirms that the H3 in the Mg12 group is a (+) triplet, i.e., a u quark, and that the N2 is a (0) duad, i.e., an X-Y bound state. The I7 group dissociates at stage E2 into a quartet of UPAs and a (−) triplet. The former is a bound state of two X and two Y subquarks and the latter is a d quark:

3X-4Y → 2X-2Y + d (= 2Y-X).

The disintegration diagram published in the first edition of *Occult Chemistry* is
shown above on the right. It differs from that in the third edition by indicating that the Mg12 groups are not
all the same. Instead, eighteen of them contain (+) triplets, (+) duads and (+) I7 groups and eighteen contain (−)
triplets, (−) duads and (−) I7 groups. This reason for this is as follows: a segment S contains two Mg12 groups and
its mirror state Mg12′. The three segments consist of two S and its mirror state S′, i.e., five Mg12 groups and
four Mg12′ groups. This is the composition of each of two funnels. Each of the two other funnels contains the
mirror states of the former, i.e., two S′ and one S, or five Mg12′ groups and four Mg12 groups. The composition of
the MPA is:

2(5Mg12 + 4Mg12′) + 2(5Mg12′ + 4Mg12) = 18Mg12 + 18Mg12′,

where

Mg12 = X-X + 6X-Y + u

and

Mg12′ = Y-Y + 6Y-X + d.

The (+) I7 group shown in the disintegration diagram of the first edition is a 6X-Y bound state and the (−) I7 (its mirror state I7′) is an X-6Y bound state. This predicted composition is confirmed by the fact that the (+) I7 group releases a (+) quartet of UPAs (4X) and a (+) triplet (u quark), whilst the (−) I7 releases a (−) quartet (4Y) and a (−) triplet (d quark) consistent with their predicted subquark compositions:

6X-Y → 4X + u (= 2X-Y)

and

6Y-X → 4Y + d (=2Y-X).

The prediction that the I7 groups described for the magnesium MPA in the first edition of
*Occult* *Chemistry* do, indeed, differ in composition from those depicted in the third edition is
supported by the fact that the configurations of the strings binding together their UPAs are quite dissimilar. The
particles in two funnels are mirror states of their counterparts in the two other funnels. What makes this possible
is the fact that the Mg12 nucleus is made up of an equal number of protons and their mirror states — neutrons,
i.e., the same number of X and Y subquarks. The magnesium MPA is another example of what the author has called
"edition variants," previously encountered in the analysis of the oxygen MPA. The third edition variant was
presumably recorded in a second examination of the magnesium MPA years after it was first described in the first
edition. The importance of such variants is that — given that in each case they were formed from two nuclei of the
same isotope because they contain the same number of UPAs — the total numbers of X and Y subquarks in their
constituent particles implied by their slightly different disintegration diagrams should still be the same, despite
breaking up into different particles. This means that they pose an additional test of consistent with theory. The
analysis of the magnesium MPA therefore provides a remarkable example of a perfect consistency between
theoretical demands and the types of particles reported to make up MPAs. The notion that such
consistency — in addition to the agreement between theory and observation for the third edition
variant — could *also* be the result of chance is plainly ludicrous, given the large set of
details that the theory explains.
