By George, I think you have just described the code process exactly!  :<O

	Is it possible that the following applies???

	A NEW ELEMENT IS DISCOVERED

	The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by
	investigators at a major Canadian research university. The element,
	tentatively, named "ADMINISTRATIUM", appears to be very closely
related to
	BUREAUCRATIUM - a known deadly poison. "ADMINISTRATIUM" has no
protons or
	electrons and thus has an atomic number of O.

	Upon initial inspection, however, it does have:

	- one neutron,
	- 125 assistant neutrons,
	- 75 vice neutrons and
	- 111 assistant vice neutrons,

	which together gives it an atomic mass of 312.

	PROPERTIES
	 -----------
	* These 312 particles are held together by a force that involves the
	continuous exchange of meson-like particles called MORONS.   
	* It is also surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles
called
	PEONS. 
	* Since it has no electrons, administratium is inert. However, it
can be
	detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact
with.

	* According to the discoverers, a minute amount of administratium
causes
	one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would have
normally
	occurred in less than a second. 
	* Administratium has a normal half-life of approximately THREE
YEARS, at
	which time it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization
in
	which assistant neutrons, vice neutrons and assistant vice neutrons
	exchange places.  

	Some studies have shown that the atomic mass actually INCREASES
after each
	reorganization.

	OCCURRENCES
	 -----------
	 Research at other laboratories indicates that administratium occurs
	naturally in the atmosphere.  It tends to concentrate at certain
points
	such as government agencies, large corporations, and universities.
It can
	usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best maintained
	buildings.
	    
	Scientists point out that administratium is known to be toxic at any
level
	of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction
where it is
	allowed to accumulate.  Attempts are being made to determine how
	administratium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but
	results to date are not promising.
