All common matter is made up of protons,
neutrons, and electrons. Fission of a
molecule releases a neutron and two
smaller molecules. These molecules vary
in their radioactivity and composition but
many are common elements that have
emerged from a more complex element.
Direct the neutrons
molecules and they will break in a very
predictable manner and produce even
more molecules. Do this enough times and
i'll bet you could produce nearly every
element below 1/2 the atomic weight of a
The drawbacks are that it will completely
turn society on its head. Nothing would be
precious or rare anymore, and money
would no longer matter. Society would
need to transition to a higher state of
mutual progress, like in star trek :)

||Fission Chips Recipe: First, catch your Fission.
||When you go nuclear fishin -- you catch molecules?
||High school chemistry is next year, isnt it?
||The subtitle (neutrons) is in conflict with the idea text (molecules).
||We can already produce many atoms that very rare and precious things (e.g., people) are made of. That's not the hard part.
||/money would no longer matter/ assuming that the only thing we need money for is to buy raw materials.
