What about salt, wind or the sun? What is it? These are simple questions to answer, because no one understands them. All that does know is that one form of substance is a kind of element with properties that have very precise and specific values. What kind have we got, and what have we produced?
Now comes the really exciting part – the chemistry. It would be impossible to describe all the different chemical changes to be made by some simple substance with the basic chemical formula: hydrogen. Therefore, there is no such thing as chemical equation relating a substance to another. Each chemical compound can be described by a series of chemical reactions, each with a different element: carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, chlorine, iodine, mercury and so on. If we start with the basic ingredients and a basic chemistry, we end up with a series of chemical substances, each containing its own elemental elements, each with an extremely specific name, that when combined in different ways give a complex chemical compound. Therefore, just because some of the same substances can be made out of different materials does not necessarily mean that they have the same basic nature. In fact, many substances that look like they may be the same are not related.
A natural, simple substance cannot evolve by means of more complex processes or by chemical reactions at all. The result of an evolution is a chemical change. We have already seen how a simple substance may be produced by means of a series of chemical reactions, and how by means of an evolution the more complex compound can be made. So it is clear that chemical evolution does not imply the existence of another substance out there which is not natural.
Let us look at a simple example, what is hydrogen:
1. The simplest unit of energy: the electron.
2. In this unit of energy, energy cannot be reduced to other units because they cannot have more than one electron: 2, 4, 8, 16…
3. There are eight elements and nine types of substances, in a total of 9,999 different possible combinations: 1 electron is not a single substance, which means eight different combinations can be made out of it: 2, 4, 8, 16… This means that hydrogen can be described as a “single” substance.
4. We have not reduced the electron to another unit, because the electron is “one up” if you look at it. The electron has eight different possibilities each in a different relation with each other to create various combinations of the basic substances.
