It is interesting that report 2b) has arrived as kind of immediate answer to the 3 Questions. It was a pleasant surprise (20% of the surprises are so)


Ed Storms' Answer.

For the questions I got an answer from Ed Storms- he gives a global answer. Thanks!

The direction in your question is important. Two directions are posible. One is toward basic scientific understanding of the phenomenon and the other is toward technology and application. The direction toward technology has failed and has caused nothing but trouble.  This path was taken much too early in the history of the discovery before the required basic information was available.  

Now, people are gradually taking an interest in the science and trying to understand what causes the LENR process. This path requires understanding of science and great skill, which until recently was denied to the effort.  I predict as this understanding is acquired, the technology direction will flourish, but not until the phenomenon is well understood. We are seeing the consequence of trying to go the technology direction too soon. As result much money has been wasted and many damaged reputations have resulted.

Dr Andrea Rossi:
Is it true that during a day in 2010 you made a test with the NRL in a laboratory of Washington, DC?
A top level officer of the NRL has written recently that the test was impressive ad that if it was a hoax it was a damn good one!
Can you describe?
Andrea Rossi
February 23, 2017 at 9:43 AM

Yes, the day you are referring to happened in the Summer of 2011, in a Laboratory connected with NRL. I brought there my E-Cat and they monnted it in a rack of theirs to make their calorimetric measurements. A specialist of NRL measured the electricity consume by means of an oscilloscope of NRL, while several thermocouples set up by them measured the temperature of the water before and after the E-Cat. A flowmeter measured the flow of water. The test during the first day measured a difference of temperature that corresponded to a production of about 1 kWh/h of energy, while after half an hour from the start up ( around 9 A.M.) the system is gone in SSM ( Self Sustained Mode ) and the amount of the input of electricity consumed by the E-Cat has been zero for all the day.
The electricity consumed amount has been measured exclusively by means of the oscilloscope brought there by the specialist of NRL.
This is what happened during that day.
Warm Regards,

The successful experiment indicates a bright future for the new and quickly growing sub-field called terahertz scanning tunneling microscopy (THz-STM). THz-STM allows researchers to image electron behavior at extremely fast timescales and explore how that behavior changes between different atoms.

Image result for bridge quotationsImage result for bridge quotations


 Architect Rossi could not build a fake bridge.

It was said- the architect wants  fame and his idea was to build a bridge that should become even better known than this one: 
or this:

The plan was simple: to build a fake  bridge- that is one looking exactly as all other bridges-  just no man, no truck, no car no other vehicle or being could pass it from one side to the other or vice-versa  If trying too hard they will fall down and this  will be lethal given it was over the great river Saint Lenrus not less than 352 meters wide.
However the architect's plan failed because he was unable to build the fake bridge alone as he wished,he needed the approvals of the State Authority for Bridges, advised by many experts, got advantageous offers from many building materials companies, helped by the Army, staff, many workers. Eventually he has lead the construction of a perfectly real, fine bridge. Great traffic on it everyday.

About the bridge metaphor- it is for the the 1MW Doral Plant.  The enemies of Rossi 
and of LENR+, stimulated by the publication of the ERV core report with stellar results, taking in account that the existence of the plant is certainty and it was functioning for 352 days continuously- have an unique solution left- to demonstrate that the result were completely fake- the question is how this happened for such a long time unobserved.. The Doral Plant has not appeared and grow up as a tree or as a cabbage
it was built on basis of design, nuclear engineer Penon has contributed to this together with Andrea Rossi and a rather multidisciplinary team including IT and control engineers. The basic rules of engineering and of safety had to be strictly respected- hydrogen is pretty dangerous, it is about high temperatures in the active core etc. Plant erection - many workers participated, engineers authorities had to supervise it.
 Rossi was not alone in that plant, not there all time., IH people also there, visitors not all ignorants in matter of plants - the professional rules had to be respected, safety rules also, Rossi was not ubiquitous , omnipresent and omnipotent there. As alpha as he is, he could not  bewitch a flowmeter unobserved; the scenario imagined by IH supporter(s) is that the flowmeter quadrupled the flow values. Any worker from the plant could easily observe this, report to his both and the Test has to be stopped. It did not happen because it is just ill-willed imagination of an impossible malfunctioning.
And the plant as normal, had problems, as all plants have. I remember a few in which I have worked in 3 shifts too, surprises come all the time according to the rule of Pareto - 80% bad. And the Plant had a normal history of problems.

The architect could not build a fake bridge, the inventor could not build a fake plant
and make it to work for 352 days in normal exploration, specific technological regime.

I wrote this for people able to think, to be objective and realist. 
Those unable to manage their hatred against Rossi and LENR, will do what they are paid and/or programmed for- try to deconstruct, demolish what I wrote.

In comparison with arguing with them, Sisyphus is doing high efficiency work in Hades

Dear Dr Rossi,

When your E-Cats are on the market for massive distribution :

1) will your company be the sole supplier of the E-Cat manufacturers with the necessary fuel ?

2) will your company be the sole buyer of nickel from nickel producers, in order to prepare the fuel for E-Cats ?

3) will the nickel producers have to do some transformations of characteristics you will request on the nickel you will purchase from them ?

4) do you think the price of nickel per unit bought from the nickel producers will be significantly higher than its standard market price due to the transformations made by them ?

5) do you have any idea to what extent for 4) ?

Thank you in advance for your answers,
Best wishes

 True on the Web too.


Confession: it happens,  it happened today that almost no papers and news for LENR came,  so I had participated at discussions on the LENR Forum re RvD Trial and about the position of the flowmeter in the over-discussed but not well known 1 MW Plant. 

Eventually I got a lot of negative energy there and it was exactly as at any other day- Yes, it is plenty of negative energy in our field. The intensity of negative energy  is greater in LENR+ Land of Rossi, his imaginary Planet- and it is highest at the DeJAvu
Enclave; as far I remember in no other place was my death and damnation overtly asked, see please a Deja vu paper toward the bottom of this posting.
Unfortunately, even classic PdD produces a bit of energy but plenty of excess of negative energy.
This has to be changed.

Image result for aquila non capit muscamImage result for size matters quotations



Somewhere on the WEB it is discussed again (and again) how could we find the best LENR theory. Ed Storms who generously gave me the permission to cite his opinions on EGO OUT and who has well crystallized ideas about the field, wrote:

"We need a way to demonstrate the effect to the most stubborn idiot.  This requires a method that can be duplicated starting with a material to which a known and reproducible treatment produces easy detected energy, helium, and other nuclear products every time.  The Rossi nickel might be such a material, but he will not reveal how it is made.

 Other people are searching and occasionally finding ways to make the effect work, but will not reveal critical details about their method for economic reasons.  We not only have nature making the problem difficult,  we must also deal  with people who want to make money by keeping their method secret.  To get money to study the effect, many people who have knowledge must sign a NDA, thereby denying to science the evidence gained from their efforts.  

Nevertheless, a great deal of information has been made public, but on too many occasions these observations are even ignored by people in the field. Personally, I find this subject to be one of the most disfunction and self defeating of any I have studied.  We have personal attack, lack of effective communication, a focus on incomprehensible explanations, all combined with many poorly written papers.   Personally, if I had not seem the effect myself, I would not believe the claims either. 

I suggest we just need to put our best and most rational foot forward and gradually wear down the skeptics. Eventually, the facts and desperation for clean energy will get people's attention." 

my opinion

My thanks to Ed and I agree with his answer.  Where I have a different opinion as the entire thread is the question per se.
Short: because LENR is a multi-phase, multi-stage, multi-step process with multiple loci that in its original form is barely measurable and needs smart high level enhancement, actually it does not need a theory but a Theoryplex (or Theory-multiplex)
(for the suffix plex:
a combining form meaning “having parts or units” of the number specified by the initial element, occurring originally in loanwords from Latin ( duplex; quadruplex); recent English coinages ending in -plex, especially denoting structures with a given number of dwelling units, are probably in part new formations with ...

The LENR theoryplex has both active techno-parts- how to make the system functional and dynamic, and passive scientific parts, it must comprise engineering in order to become productive. The replicators in spe of Rossi are still trying to workout a good system but one or more steps are still missing or not on the proper place. I think it is something rather simple but very original and  unexpected that has to be (re)discovered.
 No single theory can really help, I fear.

b) Again about the professionalism- new pillars found.

Today I realized that Professionalism has more I-Pillars than 6- you have to add: Intelligence, Initiative, Intensity, Immediacy (this last as trend, as an invincible enses
of urgency) 
About Intensity- is intensity of interest, of effort but also the intensity- size difficulty of the problem per se - The mottoes try to tell that a real professional likes great and important problems. Do you remember, just for Cold Fusion, LENR what I wrote years ago?:

A special case: the supporters of the IH story and mentality must  kill thr ERV core document otherwise...(they start to understand it, slowly) This time they must go big, minute details do not help. They must offer alterantive scenarios for how those measurements were made and how those results were obtained. 
Till now I know only one, weak construct: flowmeter magnifies results 4 times, 
fluid at 103 C is just water, COP = 1.
Waiting for more intelligent ones. But only complete alternative scenarios.

c) Gradation of the adjective "absurd": absurd, more absurd, most absurd, abdsurd.

Success has different forms- I had a special one yesterday. The psychopath next blog has wished me, with obvious sincerity and his peculiar charm:

"Peter Gluck, Burn in Hell! 

(can a sane human being wish something like this to somebody because it has a different opinion in a technical issue?)
And I dislike this despite the aphorism "I prefer the Hell if it is connected to the Internet." (Valeriu Butulescu)
An aggravating factor is that is not a wish for a far future. The blogger, one of the pillars of the IH's propaganda is unimportant and I am not sure he will not arrive in the Jahannam even faster than myself. Vederemo, as the Italians say.
The tragedy is that his blog is called Cold Fusion Community and so many newcomers on the Web will come here, read his meowing about forums that banned the guy who is a genius, and , will abandon Cold Fusion before start, for ever. First impression counts  and is fatal..
Unfortunately the community is in a state of advanced lethargy so nobody cares.The superlative of absurd is abdsurd.
I hate any form of censorship but from ethical and sanity reasons, from now on and till I am converted in fuel, the CFC blog is 'blogus non-gratus'.  Non vu, non connu, as the French say.

Dear Andrea,

Reading the interview in the link below with Dr. Focardi very is interesting. From what he recounts it sounds like you and he worked very closely for some years. Where do you think your progress with the E-Cat and QuarkX would be at the moment without his contributions?

Many thanks,

Frank Acland:
I learnt very much from the 4 years I worked with Prof Sergio Focardi, especially in terms of nuclear physics. He also has given to me confiance in myself: before our collaboration I was simply convinced that I had necessarily to be wrong, since nobody agreed with me. The matter of the fact is that initially I simply asked him to explain to me why I was wrong, thinking I did not know that why, but surely there was one.
Probably without his collaboration I would have not abandoned my traditional work in that period ( make oil and electricity with vegetables ), starting to dedicate 100% of my time to the LENR R&D.
Then thanks to him we had the possibility to make experiments with ENEL, the main electric power provider of Italy: from ENEL I learnt how to measure the energy produced by a water heating system ( see the first paper Focardi-Rossi ).
Prof Focardi was a giant: Professor of mathematics at the Normale of Pisa, Prof of nuclear physics at the University of Bologna, Dean of Scientific Matters at the University of Bologna, where he founded the Department of the Unibo of Cesena, director of a group at the CERN of Geneva, where he also worked with the Nobel laureate Prof Carlo Rubbia, etc, etc.

Excess Heat Why Cold Fusion Prevailed


Alan Smith has said 
The reactor system I developed for '' is my attempt at a lab-rat system -something that was both affordable and simple to use. As such it is meant to be the equivalent of a pick and shovel for a gold miner. It is a 'hot and dry' system , thus mostly geared -in my lab at least - toward Ni/H work, although there are other promising materials which might be good candidates. Pb/H/C for example, Pb being kissing cousin to palladium, has given me a few moments of puzzlement. We have sold or donated around 15 'Model T' reactors, of which I know at least 7 are in regular use - not quite a majority. 2 have gone to universities, and 2 to far-east car company research departments. But will the recipients discuss their work with us? They will send me photos of reactors in use, order more materials, ask for help and so on- but when I ask if they are willing to share their results - nada, zip, diddly squat. Very frustrating, as I hoped to build and support a real group of independent open researchers as the Farnsworth Fusor guys have. 

It is obvious that there are those in the garage acience world who think this is their ticket to riches, so we have a heady mix, greed, fear, reputational damage, which all play a part in creating a climate of secrecy this most troubling field could do without.
