A barrier is of ideas, not of things. (Mark Caine)
Recently I got increasingly impatient and worried. Time is flying, more and more LENR friends surrender to Thanatos and the absolute triumph of LENR is in delay. I cannot have any longer range hopes for myself, no biography has a happy end, that’s certain, - almost as taxes.
The plain situation is as follows: ~24 years ago Cold Fusion has started its travel toward the Energy Source and still has not arrived there. It is counter-productive to use any historical analogy or example- the state of facts is intolerable and has to be changed. And it can be changed as I have predicted it months ago in: my prophetic metaphor story:
that went unnoticed and half-understood even by me.
Actually it generates an essential question: why is the climbing so terribly difficult, what are those killer barriers, obstacles, limitations that must be penetrated, destroyed, overcome, in order to make our old and tired LENR dream – real?
Great questions are like dragons and dragon slaying Best Practice says – first cut the greatest head of the beast! In this case this is:
WHERE ARE THESE BARRIERS ON THE WAY? Again, my obsession- “topology first”! Notice please, it is not only about the Coulomb barrier, you will see this is perhaps the easier part.
It’s a very long way to go, it leads from LENR to Excess Heat and then to the Enhanced Excess Heat or LENR+) and from there to the Controlled Energy Source and there are many kind of obstacles, barriers, traps everywhere on this long tortuous up-mountain road.
No shortcuts- it is not possible to go from the weak, flickering, evanescent little excess heat to the real energy source, powerful intense, “here I am, here I stay” Enhanced Excess Heat is a “sine qua non” step of progress. As practice shows many problems have to be solved in order to get the hundreds times more powerful enhanced excess heat (EEH) size counts (here too!) decisively. I say it for the 50th time; LENR and LENR+ have different mechanisms
And when we eventually arrive to this, it is not over – it is a lot of engineering to do for converting EEH (or LENR+) to a manageable, easily controllable, tamed, eco-friendly energy source everybody and his auntie will gladly take home.
Go LENR, go, do not stay in vain waiting a miracle on the slippery road from the small excess heat to the great one!
Go LENR+ go, work seriously you have to do many smart things till you get on the market!
Up to now, this writing still has a great virtue- rare here: it is rather short. The problem is that it has its own barrier to acceptance; the majority of its potential readers simply do not think there exists LENR+ the enhanced excess energy and have an other vision of the Way. However, I bet this will be reversed on January 15, 2014 based on practical data coming from the champions of EEH/CES. I have no time, but my ideas have.
