Tiny Mining - Extract Precious Industrial Minerals From Your Own Body
Tiny Mining is a reaction to the endless extraction economy that treats the Earth as a treasure box; chemists, geologists, artists and practitioners of plants and metal magics and alternative medicine seek to exploit the living human body for more than 20 precious and rare earth minerals.
The tutorial above explains Tiny Mining neophytes that the mining process starts with a diet rich in oysters, dark chocolate, citrus fruits, raw fish or sashimi, beetroot, green veggies, shiitake mushrooms, etc. There are variations in this diet depending on the metals you want to mine. For the process of inner crystallisation, you then have to ingest starfruit, magnesium oxide supplements and more beetroot. The next important stage of Tiny Mining is chelation which freezes up the metals from the tissues allowing them to circulate and then be extracted in sweat and in urine. The chelating process is facilitated by natural chelating agents such as onions, garlic, coriander, spirulina, chlorella and vitamin C. Or by ingesting Argotine pills and other supplements.
Afterwards, tests evaluate the success of the process and determine the optimal time for extraction.
Science fiction writers are way ahead in this game, natch. In By Any Other Name, a Star Trek original series episode that was first aired in March of 1968, extragalactic aliens have a unique belt buckle-based form of punishment, not to mention mineral extraction:
'Jim, I saw them reduce four of my doctors
and nurses into those little cubes!'
That's right, the aliens reduce humans to dehydrated porous cuboctahedron solids which are their base minerals.
