Like magic

They say sufficiently advanced technology looks like magic. Considering that all elements are made of atoms, and all atoms are made of protons, neutrons, and electrons, it may some day be possible to make gold from hydrogen, which would be the same sort of thing that alchemists were trying to do. In fact, some day it may be possible to assemble whatever atoms you want from a tank of protons, a tank of neutrons, make a plasma, and dunk the plasma in an electric field to add the electrons. (Or however it works. I think cooling of the plasma may be involved.)

But yeah, that would kinda prove the point.
