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.

A little video (7 minutes) showing how the reactor is assembled calibrated and used. This machine (which has been upgraded a little since the video was made sells for $300 plus post.

This was 51 years ago-

In a sense it was Day of Independence for Judith and me because immediately after the wedding lunch with the families we travelled to Borzesti where we have worked
at the Chemical Combinat some 350 km from home. We both knew that to be educated means to cope with any situation.
She, in the Quality Control Dept realized that real-life analytical chemistry is more difficult than what you learn at the university. I,at the research Dept. had to make a life-time choice- Pesticides or Polymers and  opted for the later.
On personal plane- Life has hit us hard with the illness and death of our son Robert;
on the professional plane we have tried hard and have no reasons to look back in anger.

Two more pillars  of Professionalism..

We can add Independence to identification, Information, Integrity, Insight
By saying that LENR needs Independent and Innovation thinking- now professionalism has 6 Pillars exactly as LENR+.

Brian it is not a question of being a believer. 
Rossi has propelled LENR forward. If he has what says _ then great.
If he does not have it we will soon learn. Than he still has contributed. I
then have a hard time understanding why he still works on the project
Why not save the good earnings. Well there is something there. Until he is
proven wrong I think he needs full support. Yours and worse Jed's
statements are not founded on anything but guesses. Wait and see. I am sure
that you have been the target of others unfounded critic. Not funny or did

Andrea Rossi has moved the field forward- please remember also what Vladimir Vysotskii has said- Rossi has liberated the Djinn from the bottle.


If cold fusion is real, than the whole distribution of elements, as assumed in LENR in context 1 needs to be reconsidered. LENR probably produces slow neutrons in a much larger quantity than what's assumed in that article. Probably there is no need to explain the heavy elements up until Uranium by super novae only. If CF is real, also Astro-physics requires a complete rethink.

No knowledge, no integrity is                       No comment.

And about the non-professional, arrogant amateurs:

"Conceited as any 3D zero". (Valeriu Butulescu


The structure of the content of this essay- and of the concept of 
Professionalism= Identification+Information+Integrity+ Insight

I wrote yesterday about identification with problems, "living your 

profession" and about the continuous search for information.

About integrity- it is easier to define it negatively by things a real professional will never do- even for very great money or other rewards- present false results and data
 he is not doing harmful things, he/she does not lie, knows well half truth=complete lie. Saying I don't know- is both information and integrity.
An example i am from now a professional blogger and I sm now tired and lack inspiration. consequently about Insight I just remind you what i have told many times about the holistic-holographic vision of the genuine expert- and see you tomorrow!

Nuances, or subtle changes to one parameter, influence countless other factors in an experiment. While some basic themes of a system seem to be permanently fixed, in reality making a change to another element of the test can require a whole series of new considerations that will influence decision making processes. If a test element (figuratively or literally) is adjusted or replaced, the usage of pressure, heat, and stimulation may have to be re-thought. A seemingly overall solid system can otherwise fail to perform. Duration and magnitudes of pressure, vacuum, temperature, mixing, and pulsating may all require significant tweaking. Without experience and know how from extensive testing, resulting in an in-depth understanding of the interactions between the components of a complex system, success can be scarce.

I conclude that your ability to design and build working Ni-H devices is a direct consequence of the work you’ve put into testing them for the last decade. A binder of detailed auto-repair instructions cannot transform a person with a broken down car into a professional service mechanic. Likewise, an E-Cat replicator performing a couple of one-off tests is unlikely to achieve excess heat. For a single individual to master proper selection of powders, fuel handling, preparation, mixing, loading, thermal cycling, and stimulation (while avoiding a dozen possible pitfalls) requires the extreme dedication and work ethic that you’ve demonstrated. I’ve came to the conclusion that your level of intense concentrated focus is particularly difficult to find.

My hope is that not-for-profit replicators with the desire to openly share their methods and findings will emerge that have even a portion of your work ethic. Regardless of the arguments, fighting, and verbal bar room brawls taking place on various forums, I still feel a deep desire to see your technology accepted as concrete reality by the world. There’s a hundred different side issues I’m unsure about. And with the air thick with hostility with accusations flying in all directions, the increasing acrid environment seems to etch away at every untainted patch of innocence on the clothing of everyone involved: from the litigants, to forum participants with agendas, to ordinary forum users who feel bewildered and confused. I’m no different. On multiple occasions, I’ve found myself caught up in heated discussions, letting the emotions of the crowd influence me in ways I later realized were unacceptable. Primarily, because there is no excuse for disrespect and coarse, hurtful words. Secondly, because like almost everyone else except the principles involved, I have few facts to go on. In June, that may change when we on the outside see the full picture — not only a handful of emails.

Then reality strikes me. Through the layers of dirt and grime falling from the sky (raining down and adhering the clothing of the just, the unjust, and everyone in between) I see a silvery letter “E” on the back of a man’s jacket. As I approach, I see that this bold capital letter seems to repel the falling dust and ash, remaining bright and reflective. The highly polished nickel letter turns out to be part of a word, “E-Cat.” A moment later, the man turns around, and I recognize him to be you. Notebook in one hand, vial of powder in the other, and a stethoscope around his neck, the man simply nods before saying, “Thank you for your continued attention. I must get back to work now — my reactors must be attended.” The figure then walks through the midst of an angry crowd, opens a door revealing a laboratory inside, and enters. For a moment, through the crack of the door, I believe I see an elderly figure standing at one of the lab benches, taking a measurement. The second I am reminded of Sergio Focardi’s early dedication to the testing of your technology, you secure the entrance.

The bright letter “E” is all that matters now. Enormously Energetic, Extremely Economical, Enviously Environmentally Friendly: regardless of any outcome or future scenario, the reality of the E-Cat technology must be demonstrated for the sake of the entire world. My hope is that this happens in the very near future via repeated replications by multiple parties, showing self sustained production of heat.

Please forgive this rambling from someone who feels torn and pulled in multiple directions, with only the overall reality of your nickel-hydrogen technology to keep him hanging on. It literally has turned into the sole source of light in a gloomy cave, filled with angry bitter souls scratching at each other. By keeping focused on that light, I hope I can avoid losing what remains of myself and becoming one of them.

Four Steps for Solving Your Problem

MOTTOImage result for professional quotesImage result for professional quotes
Image result for professional quotesImage result for professional quotes

Power is like being a lady... if you have to tell people you are, you aren't. (Margaret Thatcher)
Thanks dear Peggy,  exactly the same is true for a professional! 



The DeJAvu people dislike tremendously the recently revealed ERV report with its stellar results and make serious (will not use "desperate"!) efforts to destroy, demolish it. Nothing surprising in it , however the task is actually impossible due to the lack of real data, vital or mortal information-- as the diagram of the Plant. It is like fencing with an invisible foe. They are trying to hit the target with explosive projectiles or torpedoes that can bring down the ERV edifice.

Two days ago it was the  smashing testimony of witnesses who, visiting the Doral Plant could state that the pesky flowmeter reads 4 times more than it actually measures and the 103C fluid coming out from the E-Cats after an intimate contact of the active cores (at >800C) is definitely water NOT steam.  So he COP was constantly less than 1, no traces of excess heat were generated.  The testimony being secret and a proof of the para-normal capacities of those unnamed visitors, the explosion  of this torpedo was just a bit more noisy than the tamed flatus of a tired virus baby.

However the next torpedo is from an entirely different category.  JEd Rothwell has discovered a a paper and  I bet Dewey Weaver will congratulate him and say it is about a situation similar to that at the Doral Plant:

Jed's discovery

Here is an article and some videos showing how a flow meter can installed incorrectly:

Figure 4 shows how to correct the problem. As far as I know, Rossi had these same problems, and he did not install the kind of plumbing shown in Fig. 4 that would fix them.
The instructions for the meter are here:

Concluding sentence:
N.B. Per mantenere il buon funzionamento dei componenti del contatore, si raccomanda di assicurarsi che il contatore sia sempre pieno d'acqua (ad eccezione di brevi periodi dovuti a manutenzione).

Google translate:

N.B. To maintain the proper functioning of the meter components, it is recommended make sure that the counter is always full of water (except for short periods due to maintenance).

My reaction and answer to the discovery paper

An excellent paper kind of old friend- I remember when it was first discussed on the blog of my friend Daniele Passerini years before the trial and then once again in the Flowmeter scandal days when you, Jed.  have claimed that a good flowmeter expert can convince the instrument to show one order of magnitude more flow than the real one. (now this is 4X) BTW this is your idea fixa.
The results of the paper are perfectly plausible and the solution- ascending pipe is simple and fine.
The main differences to the Doral plant case:

a) the paper describes an open flow not a circuit, the Plant has that ascending pipe 
b) the tests with errors are made when the flow is just starting, a professional test would let the flow for a few minutes when the parameters are established and constant- and only then to compare reading and effective flow.

You do not measure the speed of flight during landing- start is anomalous in a way.
However the Gioanola instructions are fine and have to be respected strictly being the same as those for the flowmeter used in the Plant.

Now there are two cases possible in principle:
 A. Normal professional setup:
RESERVOIR- PUMP-FLOWMETER-E-CATS: no systematic, significant errors possible

B. Setup according to Jed
FLOWMETER- RESERVOIR-PUMP- E-CATS- serious problems; doubtful if flowmeter works- erratic, inconstant, jumping readings due to air inclusions however not constant multiplier effect, incontrollable system. 
Errors- yes, scamming is much more difficult.
BTW the same true for Luca Gamberale's calumny paper.
Where in the LENR land are you now, caro Luca?

But now we arrive to the part I really like- and this is the subject of this blog issue.
My revelation was that the paper warmly recommended by Jed and actually a good one is NOT a professional paper. Who is interested in flowmeter errors in the first minutes from the start? Does this paper claim it is the first one about flowmeter errors? Has it determined all causes of errors? It is only a nice amateur experimental paper (do you know a diminutive for paper in English- in other languages it is!)  for the landing period of the flowmeter. Not less, not more. I am personally interested in the problem, I have three watermeters in my flat- one for the kitchen second in the greater bathroom and the third in the smaller bathroom where te washing machine is.
It would be very bad if these instruments force me to pay fow watr I have not consumed. There are 30 flats in the block building and a central great flowmeter in 37 years there twas not problem- water flow/consumebalance good. Nice flowmeters.
My daughter works at the Metrology Office and they have a section for flowmeters. But I will not ask the specialists how to use the instruments  as flow multiplier I met this problem first when  Jed generated that anti-professional idea- an offense for any honest engineer and a form of dishonest craziness. Just thinking about is  symptomatic. It is counterproductive to discuss with people immune to logic.

Better let ;s think on:


In contrast with the DeJAvu people I have a deep respect for  profession and professionals.
I think the genuine professionals first virtue is  IDENTIFICATION- he/she is totally dedicated to the problem task project- lives it deeply and sincerely. Professional is simultaneously personal.
The professional is INFORMED tends to total information- now on the Web, in books, papers, patents, grey literature, at colleagues, obtainable by reverse  engineering, wants to know everything relevant. Builds and rebuilds knowledge taxonomies, constellation of concepts, has own systems of  knowledge management. brings life and dynamics in what he knows, learns till the last second of conscious life.
It is rather humble "know-it-well" than an arrogant "know it all." Is able to say I don't know with dignity, serenity and even charm.  This is in contrast with the amateurs 
who consider a "have no idea" or a "you are right, I was wrong" as an unsupportable lost battle and therefore never accept to be in  error or simply ignorant. It is a two-edged privilege to meet such individuals on the web and I am still comparing them 
with the political oppressors I met. 

.But more about this and about the Integrity of professionals tomorrow.
I have tio triple check this writing, I see very badly and I have made dreadful typos here and in my correspondence recently, for which i apologize.

[Download] Hacking the Atom: Explorations in Nuclear Research (Volume 1) PDF by Steven B. Krivit

) Conversations: Simon Derricut 3

I follow the group think Lenr discussions debates and mud slinging on the Lenr blogs.
I think we gain from it but sometimes I wish a respected American-style boss from the 40s or 50s would show up.
And say everybody shut up.This is how it is and this is how it's going to be.Now everyone get to work

It is well worth considering the following opinions. They are just opinions but IMHO have strong legs...

OPINION #1: That the lawsuit is a tactic to tie AR up and that the desire by IH is to allow other LENR projects (or equally non-LENR projects that offer new energy) to advance and bypass Andrea Rossi's claims. 

OPINION #2: Is that Andrea Rossi does indeed have a LENR device that has at various times generated abundant over unity power and at other times failed.

The premise for the above opinions include these points ...
- AR doesn't yet know how to fully control his devices 
- Andrea Rossi is near impossible to work with 
- AR has never maintained a partnership
- AR appears to have a high turnover of staff
- AR does not have a theoretical basis for his eCats
- AR *has* made far to many past claims that can be proven wrong
- AR is a 'lone wolf' and as such, is an easy target for being diverted (and that is happening irrespective of any deliberate intentions of IH)
- In a nutshell, AR doesn't fully understand his invention and thus is paranoid that someone else getting too close may see things he can't. IMHO he has very good reason to act paranoid about this. He desperately needs expert support but can't bring himself to employ it. If true, it will cost him dearly in the long run. 


Brillouin have claimed for several years that the one thing they can show is predictable control of their 'boiler'. Assuming true, then they *may* have what AR doesn't (controlability).

But despite all the hype about Brillouin and assistance from SRI, they have only been able to show a tiny COP (IIRC 1.2 - 1.3) and they have not yet shown a scaled up 'boiler' device (a point they and their supporters don't talk about very much, one has to delve deeply on this). SRI were supposed to help on this scaling. However, Brillouin & SRI may have made advances in power scaling but are keeping it secret (perhaps).

Brillouin are an easier entity to deal with for an investor like IH. IH are also clearly seeking to lock up as much LENR IP as they can get access to. They make this pretty clear in the press statements they release.

The most probable LENR winner is going to be the group that can lock onto an accepted theory. Maybe it will be the Widom-Larsen theory, maybe there will be a newer one. But, a good theory is crucial to proving an invention and having it patented. Personally I like the W-L theory best (at this time).
