However, there is no technology or mother nature that consistently changes one atom into another type of atom. For example, you cannot create gold from helium. It is possible but the amount of energy needed is much more than we can ever produce. All the gold in the universe is created from extremely large stars that have gone supernova. How can we produce that much energy on earth?

Latest comment: And what was that point that I missed? What would utopia look like if we could create anything we wanted? He said, at the end, that Mother Nature already created a device that can turn hamburgers and french fries into a baby. Although that might be partially true, the hamburger and the fries are made out of mostly carbon and so is our body. In fact, all life that we have discovered is carbon based. Now let's see you eat nothing but boron, lithium, and aluminum to see if you can create a baby.
