Colloidal Lanthanum

The name of this Rare Earth is derived from the Greek 'lanthanein', meaning to lie hidden. I chose a picture of Plato's Allegory of the Cave because of its hidden meaning and its homeopathy quality of wondering how others manage autonomy.

Lanthanum is a soft, ductile, silvery-white rare-earth metal element with symbol La and atomic number 57. In the periodic table, it is the first element of the lanthanide series (or, less frequently, the first element of the 6th-period transition metals). It is usually found in combination with cerium and other rare earth elements. Lanthanum oxidizes rapidly when exposed to air. It is produced from the minerals monazite and bastnäsite using a complex multistage extraction process. Lanthanum compounds have numerous applications as catalysts, additives in glass, carbon lighting for studio lighting and projection, ignition elements in lighters and torches, electron cathodes, scintillators, GTAW electrodes, and others. Lanthanum carbonate (La2(CO3)3) has been approved as a medicine for treating renal failure.

Physical properties

Lanthanum has a hexagonal crystal structure at room temperature. At 310°C, lanthanum changes to a face-centered cubic structure. At 865°C, it changes to a body-centered cubic structure.Lanthanum is easily oxidized; a centimeter-sized sample will completely oxidize within a year.Therefore, it is used in elemental form only for research purposes. Single lanthanum atoms have been isolated by implanting them into fullerene molecules; if carbon nanotubes are filled with these lanthanum-encapsulated fullerenes and annealed, metallic nanochains of lanthanum are produced inside carbon nanotubes.

According to Dr Joel Wallach in “Rare Earths Forbidden Cures,” the life span is doubled by the presence of Lanthanum.


Stage 3: Lanthanum

Confusion, irresolution, indecision in action, including new challenges on a relatively mundane level

Lanthanum is confused about what autonomy really is. They wonder if it’s really possible to be autonomous and they wonder how others manage that. They will try to stand up for themselves from time to time, but will be easily intimidated and give up.
