In case you are missing real quotes, please read:


a) Inspired by the Internet

Two must-write review papers - to finish both in this month:
- The LENR optimist's guide for 2017.
- The LENR pessimist's guide for 2017.
Perhaps the two texts can be identical!

A wise advice: "stop demonizing the other side!"

A painful rhetoric question:" Are we out of really great ideas?

b) Steve Krivit has done it again.
He and the editor of his recent book have published paper 2) - below.
It is supporting the W-L theory- the authors know why, based on which performances, applications of this theory.

There is a new collection of dots that the quantum spin liquid is bringing to the surface. The first is long distance entanglement. Even through the spins are random locally, then are coherent at long distances with other patches of random spins in the far field.

The spins become spinons, which are spins that exist separately from the electrons. These spinons generate factional spin. 

The spinons produce a new kind of magnetism, called spin liquid magnetism.

This spin liquid magnetism produces magnetic monopoles.

Finally, there is a theory that says that the vacuum is a quantum spin liquid. That is how the cosmos is connected together through entanglement and makes the vacuum a superconductor. This superconductivity of the vacuum produces mass in certain types of particles.

For an overview see

If Russ George can connect all these dots together, it would make for a fine article

The word TROLL - Internet troll is younger than me Before learning about the nasty trolls my immediate reaction-connection to the ord was this musical piece by Edvard Grieg:


 a) Russ George  teaches me to use a better word

Regarding the 4th column that attacks LENR, Russ advised me: 

like most basically good people you ignore the really dastardly. Your list of the kinds of people in your column leaves out the most dastardly those being the TROLLS... Trolls behave the way they do simply to garner any attention... there is no deeper reason behind them other than that they are pitiful twisted malcontents who hate their own lives and live only to poison other peoples lives... we all recognize who are the troll of lenr to be. Social media is Troll heaven. 

He is right- those a aggressive and noisy denialist-negationist-conspiration theorists are, at least functionally speaking- trolls.

b) A returning angry Anonymous dislikes what I wrote yesterday (too)
However he completely misunderstands me. He wrote

Just can't stop bashing Pons and Fleischmann, can you. YOU are doing more damage to LENR than your supposed "fifth column" of "classic cold fusionists" by creating a divide where none exists. THE factor inhibiting ALL cold fusion research is lack of funding, and has been ever since the hot fusion types tried and almost attempted to strangle CF in its cradle. Look at the efforts in your beloved "LENR+" (which doesn't exist....LENR is LENR). Badly funded efforts run in garages and living rooms, or bootlegged outside normal hours at professional labs. Wake up and smell the coffee!

It has been the efforts of those "classic LENR" types that have managed to keep the field alive AT ALL, and built up a solid background of sound research data sufficient to convince non-standard sources of funding to provide some small grants, but compared to funding for comparablly understood things (for instance "high temperature superconductivity") that is about as close to non-existent as it can get and still exist. 

Telling that somebody had no luck is not a negative opinion. The weakness of Pd D is in no way due to some error or lack of creativity of the Founders. On the contrary discovering LENR in very bad and hostile circumstances, in a place where it barely exists, is a supplementary proof of their genius. Lack of funding is only an aggravating factor- I have made bets here that even with billions of dollars funding, the essential problems of he cradle system will NOT be solved because they cannot be solved at all, THERE- (Djinn in the Bottle) I had the privilege to discuss with Martin Fleischmann himself (at ASTI-1997) what has happened at IMRA-FRANCE. It is obvious that the Founders were oppressed and attacked unjustly however with solid reliable experimental results they could win. And it was not a problem of lack of funding only. Today ENEA and SKINR are not poor and where is the awaited PdD breakthrough. 
We will see if LENR+ exist or not. I have predicted it.
I think researchers insisting to work with the PdD electrolytic system, wet, dirty, cool
who do not accept the high temperature, deep degassing and stimulation systems, not using technology in combination with Science are sine qua non conditions of a working productive system- have no future. It is also counterproductive to deny the possibilities of the transition metal-hydrogen systems a la Pianteli and a la Rossi . NiH is an industrial possibility but it is- in historical vision also a pilot or a technical guinea pig- better metals can be W or, why not , Fe. Watch the field for 30-50 years and you will see.

We demonstrate, within symmetry unrestricted time dependent density functional theory, the existence of new effects in low-energy nuclear reactions which originate from superfluidity. The dynamics of the pairing field induces solitonic excitations in the colliding nuclear systems, leading to qualitative changes in the reaction dynamics. The solitonic excitation prevents collective energy dissipation and effectively suppresses capture cross section. We demonstrate how the variations of the total kinetic energy of the fragments can be traced back to the energy stored in the super- fluid junction of colliding nuclei. Both contact time and scattering angle in non-central collisions are significantly affected. The modification of the capture cross section and possibilities for its experimental detection are discussed.

Hydrogen and Low Energy Nuclear Reactions, 
Sveinn Olafsson, Science Institute, Physics department University of Iceland, 
L. Holmlid, University of Gothenburg, Sweden 

For over the last 25 years the science of cold fusion/LENR has been researched around the world with slow pace of progress. Modest quantity of excess heat and signatures of nuclear transmutation and helium production have been confirmed in experiments and theoretical work has resulted in a flora of possible theoretical scenarios. [1-2] Here we present energy production in several stages of surface processes that result first in the formation of Rydberg matter of Hydrogen [3] that can later condense in a new ultra-dense Hydrogen phase with 2.3 pm short bond distances. This phase is nuclear active showing break-even fusion reaction [7] under 100mW laser pulsing and slow spontaneous fusion occurring without laser pulsing[4,5,6]. The experimental work in around 30 publications is briefly reviewed and latest experimental results presented and discussed. In that work high-energy particles are detected from the spontaneous processes using scintillation and other similar detectors. Both spontaneous line-spectra and a spontaneous broad energy distribution similar to a betadecay distribution are observed indicating detection of particles such as muons. The broad distribution is concluded to be due to nuclear particles, giving straight-line Kurie-like plots. They are observed even at a distance of 3 m in air and have a total rate of 107 -1010 s-1. In the talk the link of these observation to Low energy nuclear reactions (LENR) or so called cold fusion will be discussed experimentally and theoretically.

Iron rusts from disuse; water loses its purity from stagnation... even so does inaction sap the vigor of the mind. (Leonardo da Vinci)

The consequences of a lack of new knowledge is decades of stagnation: the next generation will be poorer than this one. (A Geim)

Actually I am writing about the STAGNATORS


The LENR world was always at war(s) just some things change almost 28 years is a long history. Two days ago, I have described the war of Cold fusion alias LENR classic- under siege attacked by for columns of enemies
1- envious hot fusionists;
2- greedy fossil fuel supporters;
3- dogmatic theoretical physicists; 
4- angry general denialists, negationists, anti-progressives

LENR classic could defeat all these, however due to the 5-th column internal enemy
inherent weakness of PdD wet system the war remains undecided till today despite the heroism and creativity of our researchers- LENR survived  but is unable to prevail.

In the 22th year of LENR history a new war has started this time against LENR+ - enhanced  heat excess up to multiplicative heat excess. First the same 4 columns of enemies have attacked LENR+ - the denialists being the most numerous and aggressive. Then in 2016 due to a legal conflict between Rossi and his 3years rich partner Industrial Heat, the attacks were lead increasingly by a humn 5-th column
LENRists who do not accept LENR+.or/and are against Rossi and his technology and are firmly convinced that Science must precede technology. They deserve a  new word: Stagnators- creators if stagnation, sentencing the field to long range lack of progress. They are motivated by diverse things- if asked, they invoke idealism, love of science- pure love, sacredness of measurement. However science purism goes well with simple corruption. with the long time frustration and desperate seeking of an opportunity to CONTRIBUTE; if the cannot do anything good for LENR- they want to demonstrate that they have defended it against the Evil.
 Their modes of thinking are strange, their logic and vision of reality sometimes worse than bizarre. For them time flows backwards, they try to rebuild the truth
and show a reality convenient for them. For them water flows backward in pipes,
 that are half-full and time is half full with truth and half with sick imagination,.. The scientific instruments for them are tools of the Devil made not to measure but to multiply results for deceit.
they manufacture stagnation by creating destructive illusions: LENR's problems will be solved by more precise measurements and permanent calibration and YES!  progress is possible without enhancement, intensification, and scale-up. Many of them- and these are the most vocal and dominant ones- have never lead a research project and have kindergarten level understanding of development. But they want to decide the fate and future of LENR
Some people - belonging to the 4th column, professional denialists have priority in attacking Rossi and his technologies, what do these people think about the stagnators? Do they consider the newcomers as allies or usurpers?

I second Jed’s thanks for the AP paper translation.  Its seems to nail down the results of 22 years (at least) of the Ni-H LENR system R&D.  S. Forcardi and other Italians should get the credit it seems to me.

I also consider that Rossi has been able to improve upon the COP’s of the system by finding compatible combinations of Li, H, Ni nano particle characteristics, and, primarily control circuit resonance to allow   minimal energy input and long term self sustaining operations.     

Those non-believers of Rossi’s capabilities are akin to  those folks that believe the Earth is only 6000 years old who live with dogmas and/or a conflict of interest.  Their idea of fraud is not unlike the fraud they seem to say God committed on mankind when he also left evidence of dinosaurs  on the earth.

Dear Andrea,
Your 1 MW E-cat consists of four 250 kW “Tigers” that could be run separately.
Your smallest building block for the QuarkX is in the size of 20 W. Have you yet decided of what size the commercial building block of QuarkX that can be run separately will be? On the one hand you have experience of 250 kW units but on the other hand you don’t have experience of putting together over 10000 QuarkX units yet. My guess is that you first will work in your R&D with a couple of hundred QuarkX units put together to verify the control loops and the heat transfer.
Smaller number of QuarkX units with its own temperature transducer, amplifier and control loop will be easier to control, larger number of QuarkX units for a single control loop will be cheaper but not as easy to control. I understand that the size of the QuarkX is also derived from the possibility to control multiple units with one control loop, but a lot of R&D must be done before having a commersial design.
Of course you understand how much work is left, but I write this for the readers also to understand it and not to wish a Home QuarkX Heater for Christmas this year (or even next year). Realistically, QuarkX Home Heater for selected markets could be available Christmas 2018, if everything works well (F8). Am I right?

Regarding: "Cold Fusion is a victim of its own weakness all the other attacks are only aggravating factors"

This weakness is entirely understandable and even to be expected. There is a time for everything and LENR's time has not yet come. These first stumbling and befuddled LENR explorers were dealing with issues that were far over their heads. It will take a century or two before the new foundations of the science will be laid down to an extent sufficient that makes LENR's plausibility generally acceptable. Until that future day, we continue to stubbornly poke at the new fire with are pitiful tools in a random and unfocused speculation and look for some fortuitous outburst of emerging sparks just like our Bushmen ancestors of our dim and distant past who once had done the same indiscriminate, nonspecific, and haphazard prodding to the old fire. So don't be discouraged for such is the nature of the eternal struggle of humanity against the indistinct and mysterious nature of the cosmos.

MOTTOImage result for quotations victimImage result for quotations victim


a)  A musical discovery- not LENR

Yesterday, after sending out EGO OUT I wanted to relax- so Judith and i watched MEZZO TV- classical music. Surprise a very original musical piece that captivated us immediately, unknown - already started so we did not know what it it was- my wife is talented and knows a lot. Who is the composer/ We have tried with the Shazam - it works for a surprisingly broad range of musical pieces classic and not- this time it failed to show what we were listening to. 
The piece was marvelous, very sad and I told it is about "The burial of the gravedigger", Judith said she believes it can be by Stravinsky.
And she was right- using the Web we discovered it was Funeral song by him, lost for 100 years and recently rediscovered:

Revelation- I have to pay more attention to the music of Igor Stravinsky - and of his mentor- Rimsky Korsakoff

b) LENR and victims.

I am still trying to convince my friends and colleagues about the real, fundamental cause of the great troubles of Cold Fusion during its early history. By the way just these days we can read a lot about that period.
It is a trend to antropomorphise the evolution, giving priority to the human factors and to misjudge the scientific-technical ones.
It was a classic,  4 columns attacking the newborn science:-
-  hot fusion scientists, frustrated by their own insuccesses;
-  fossil energy supporters;
- arrogant theoretical physics dogmatists;
- all round maniacal denialists of everything new.

However all these could have been defeated by  solid, reproducible good experimental results however the fifth column was and remained up to today the fifth column:
- inherent incurable weakness of excess heat results (sporadic, weak. transient, uncertain, unpredictable, barely manageable) due to the incompleteness of the
PdD LENR cell and system. Cold Fusion is a victim of its own weakness all the other attacks are only aggravating factors
Fifth column is a concept, metaphor one year older then myself:

However I have received a long list of the victims of Andrea Rossi- you can see it here:
10 categories, Pweet, the author  has used a taxonomy probably inspired from Borges:

Repeated things, however interesting hat the detractors and character assassins 
of Rossi also constitute a category of his victims. Or Industrial Heat which refused contractual payment when a valid and unquestioned contract existed.

4) Geotritium: Implications of DeP Weak Interaction Fusion in Magmatic Systems 
Journal of Physical Science and Application 6 (4) (2016) 1-7
Thomas E. Ward 
Techsource Incorporated, 20251 Century Blvd., Germantown, Maryland 20874, U.S.A Abstract: 
Tritium in the environment comes from several sources: anthropogenic nuclear weapons and commercial nuclear reactors, atmospheric cosmic-ray production, and geotritium. Geotritium and its decay product 3 He is found in the earth’s magmatic system evidenced by tritium emission from volcanoes and 3 He anomalies associated with MORB (Mid-Ocean Ridge Basalts), OIB (Oceanic Island Basalts) and deep mantle plumes. The 3 He can be accounted for assuming a radiogenic 3 3 T He ( ) component as opposed to a primordial source. It is proposed that the 3 d pe t ( ,)   weak interaction fusion (WIF) reaction (Q = 5.474 MeV) is the source for both the geotritium and anomalous 3 He found in nature. The radiogenic lifetime for the WIF reaction, 3 e dp e t     , in a metal hydride geologic environment, such as FeH/FeD in the core and mantle of the earth, was calculated to be 9 1.61 10 . dep   x yr The anomalous 3 He produced by the WIF reaction, a radio chronometer, was used to correlate and date mantle basalt processes deep within the earth. The p pe d ( ,)   WIF reaction (Q = 1.442 MeV) with a lifetime 12 2.54 10 . pep   x yr was also examined as a possible geochronometer for the formation interval of the oceans, the duration of the earth’s melting and degassing prior to the formation of the oceans. The formation age of the oceans was determined to be 3.93 billion years ago in good agreement with geologic magmatic activity and continental crust formation.


I was delighted to read the new paper in the Journal Nature about ‘fusion’ in the core of the Earth.

What a delight to see this new paper. So the Journal Nature has now come around from its flagrant condemnation and ridicule of all things cold fusion to publishing about it being the source of heat in the inner Earth (and other planets of course). I can testify that I engaged in a discussion of this very mechanism with Martin Fleischmann at the very first meeting on cold fusion while he and Giuliani Preparata and I shared a bottle of wine to cool our tempers if not our passion. Here’s a link to my blog post about my late friends, 

The dastardly pundits at Nature deserve a special place in hell for their avaricious dogmatic approach to discovery of the mysteries of Nature. I am quite sure Maddox is occupying a well-deserved spit there now. The great tragedy of science is that most of the community behave like gentlemen but of course being the real substance of the stew of knowledge they are not what floats to the top, what floats is the scum and there is no greater repository of the scum and shysters of Science than the editors and publishers and owners of the Journal Nature.

Within the microcosm of the ecology of atoms the Earthly core conditions described in this paper are not at all uncommon. That is why cold fusion is and always has and will be a principal part of behavior of hydrogen in nature.

17 Important Innovation Lessons From One Of The World's Great Architecture Firms

We have discussed about these subjects (decisions and chess) and i like the idea:

You make more risky choices as the day wears on, chess study suggests
By Devika G. Bansal
Dec. 2, 2016 , 4:00 PM
Early birds and night owls have radically different daily habits. But a new study suggests they both share one trait: As the clock ticks, their decisions get dicey. Neuroscientists examined the quality of moves in more than one million games of chess in an online database. They charted the decisions of 99 prolific players by gauging the time they took for each move and its usefulness in leading to a victory—factors that impact games like high-speed tiebreakers in the World Chess Championships, which took place in New York earlier this week. As expected, early risers played more games in the morning, whereas night owls were active at dusk and beyond. But both sets of players took longer for each move and made better game choices early in the day and soon after they woke up. Come evening, their game play quickened by 2.5%, while their moves grew less effective by the same margin on average. The study revealed a pervasive switch in decision strategy from safe play in the morning to riskier—faster and less successful—moves at sundown, the team will report next month in Cognition. The finding shows we may have greater control over our decisions earlier in the day and soon after we wake up, regardless of when we prefer to sleep. As we grow tired, our bodies’ need for sleep could dictate the quality of our choices—no matter how focused we think we might be.
