To educate somebody means to make him/her able to cope with any situation.

A pragmatic principle of the British  education system starting around 1890than gradually lost, eroded, metamorphosed. Today too it is not explicit that problem solving skills are the key to a better, less chaotic future.
I thought much about the difficult years following the events of October 1956, oppression, negative privileges etc. and when I read the today's essay at LENR IN CONTEXT-2 saying "happiness makes you less creative" I could add- 
good life also' Life is not a meritocracy however if you are spoiled you are weakened; the unprivileged, the underprivileged are better educated and some compensation of their bad start conditions appear.

This is why we have lost It?


A short note from Andrea Rossi re Revolutions, what is revolutionary in his system

In the dialectic of history, revolution's essence is the vacuum left by a situation efore it. Basically it is field that gets a force when a symmetry is broken

I just got the force deriving from the vacuum related to the exploiting of the energies non related to known chemical reactions. I must add that the spark that has broken this symmetry has been the exploit of F&P; like global symmetry broken- that has shown the force deriving from the breaking of a local symmetry

1)From the LENR Forum a new peer-reviewed paper by Leif Holmlid:

"Leptons from decay of mesons in the laser-induced particle pulse from ultra-dense protium p(0)"
Kaons and pions are observed by their characteristic decay times of 12, 52 and 26 ns after impact of relatively weak ns-long laser pulses on ultra-dense hydrogen H(0), as reported previously. The signal using an ultra-dense protium p(0) generator with natural hydrogen is now studied. Deflection in a weak magnetic field or penetration through metal foils cannot distinguish between the types of decaying mesons. The signals observed are thus not caused by the decaying mesons themselves, but by the fast particles often at > 50 MeV u−1 formed in their decay. The fast particles are concluded to be mainly muons from their relatively small magnetic deflection and strong penetration. This is further supported by published studies on the direct observation of the beta decay of muons in scintillators and solid converters using the same type of p(0) generated

About Revolutions

Revolutions are always more exciting than baby steps. (Philip Bump 
Every revolution evaporates and leaves behind only the slime of a new bureaucracy. (Franz Kafka) 
Revolutions have never lightened the burden of tyranny. They have only shifted it to another shoulder. ( George Bernard Shaw) 

Revolution is just one crowd taking power from another. (John Updike)

We used to think that revolutions are the cause of change. Actually it is the other way around: change prepares the ground for revolution. (Eric Hoffer)

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable. (John F. Kennedy)

The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall. (Che Guevara)

A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery. (Mao Zedong)

A revolution is not a bed of roses. A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past. (Fidel Castro)

You cannot make a revolution with silk gloves. (Joseph Stalin)

a) 1956 my first revolution

Today we celebrate the 60 the anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956
a heroic fight for freedom. We mourn the many victims of the fast repression that came mercilessly. 
The heroes have preserved a high degree of moral perfection and ideality
Revolutions are orgasms or fits of History and as such do not last much- a victorious revolution becomes a contradiction in terms; the initial ideals are lost and a struggle 
for power starts (see Mottoes)  Think about the French Revolution- its ideals are shining and are eternal however Terror has surfaced and it  ended with an Emperor.
Or what has followed after the Great October Revolution in the Soviet Union. 
Our 1989 Revolution has lead to a strange mixture of good and bad things- corruption being a leit-motif. Think about the unwanted consequences of the revolutions against dictatorship in countries as Libya. Ask your Italian friends.

But I am not expert in politics and history. I have my very personal remembrances re the 1956. We the students from Timisoara (I was the in the 2nd year of Industrial Chemistry) have organized an echo movement of sympathy for the Hungarian events. I participated t a meeting on Oct 30  and at  demonstration march on October 31 - some 1000 students In the center of the City, near the Cathedral We were surrounded by the army and loaded in trucks. I have seen how scared and confused the young soldiers are and I made maneuvers to be in the very last of the many army trucks. The convoy was circulating rather slowly so at a proper place I jumped from the truck and run as fast as I could, entered a house then through the courtyard I jumped over a fence in my favorite restaurant garden CINA and then hiding as much as could I went home. My colleagues were carried to the garrison of Becicherec a near village and convinced by the adequate means to sign declarations of obedience and  loyalty to the Communist Party.
A few days later when the Universities and the Polytechnics started to work again, we all have signed those declarations- the alternative being expelled  from the university and going to prison.
The Party Secretary of our Faculty a tovarishch Bunescu delivered  a fulminating discourse: "How do you dare..." was the refrain. He was an actor, spoke pathetically about the inerrancy of the Communist Party, we sinned, we have to repent. We were discouraged but life continued.

b) Ed Storms answers to AXIL

AXIL asks some questions on your blog. Clearly, he has not bothered to read my book where I address the problem of control  and meltdown.  Right now, the important problem is to discover how to cause the effect and to identify the unique conditions required to support the nuclear reaction.  I suggest AXIL try to focus on this issue and read what I have written before describing what I have not done.

Also, when discussing melting, the critical temperature is NOT the melting point of pure Pd or Ni, but the melting point caused by the local concentration of the many impurities, each of which will lower the local melting point, which is the evidence for melting that is actually observed

"Method for the Producing Heavy Electrons"

Inventor: Mauro Schiavon
Original Assignee: Schiavon, Mauro
Filing date: 2016-04-01
Publication date: 2016-10-05


A method is presented for the continuous production of heavy electrons with extra mass values such that they can be captured by hydrogen ions and give rise to the generation of a neutron flux which optionally can be used to trigger and sustain a low energy nuclear reaction. This method is based on the physical phenomenon of Localized Plasmon Resonance (Local Surface Plasmon Resonance - LSPR).

Background of the invention
[0002] Recently a theory was advanced that combines the energy developed by the "Low Energy Nuclear Reactions" (LENR - Low Energy Nuclear Reactions) with the production of heavy electrons. Briefly, this theory proposed by Widom and Larsen, states that at the base of the development of low-energy nuclear reactions there are appropriate energy resonance conditions of "surface plasmon polaritons" (Surface Plasmon Polariton - SPP) capable of producing heavy electrons that interact with hydrogen ions in a crystal of a metal hydride or of an electrically conductive material that has hydrogen ions on the surface.

Non-metal catalyst splits hydrogen molecule
Boron compounds extend range of possible chemical synthesis applications

Hydrogen (H2) is an extremely simple molecule and yet a valuable raw material which as a result of the development of sophisticated catalysts is becoming more and more important. In industry and commerce, applications range from food and fertilizer manufacture to crude oil cracking to utilization as an energy source in fuel cells. A challenge lies in splitting the strong H-H bond under mild conditions. Chemists have now developed a new catalyst for the activation of hydrogen by introducing boron atoms into a common organic molecule.

"Extra LENR-am non est vita; sed est non est ita"
(Outside LENR there is no life and it is, it is not the same") explanation below at b) 


a) The mottoes of yesterday

I forgot to tell you wise saying of Lampedusa
"Scratch an altruist and you will get a hypocrite bleeding" 
Hypocrites can be really despicable, wherever they appear.

One reader, nickname Che, has called my attention to the fact that based on the "Leopard" novel a great Italian director who was a communist has made a movie. 
OK, I know well hat Luchino Visconti was a member of the Italian Communist Party
however he was also an aristocrat, a genius, a homosexual and a time relatively close to the son of Benito Mussolini; however only his geniality is only relevant 
for the movie. Again I must emphasize the validity of one of Carlo Cipolla's Laws
of Human Stupidity: " Stupidity is independent from ANY other characteristic of the individual"
Tomorrow we will celebrate the 60-th Anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution
that was surely not triggered by the good life in a communist, oppressive society.
More about the 1956 events- my participation- tomorrow.

b) Thinking about Hungary- the Motto of today

Extra Hungariam non est vita, sed est non est ita.
 A saying once very popular in the neighboring country- coined by the Italian philosopher Caelius Rhodiginius in the XV century - who observed how much Hanagrian students where attached to their own foods and tradition, then resurrected by Szaszky Tomka Janos three century's later ;
the saying getting many interpretations. It is very impressive to see how powerful traditions can be or a dominant modus vivendi.  Hungry as used for the saying but actually it is very civilized country. And I share their attitude toswrd unknown and uncontrollable emigrants.
And despite the fact that my Blog is dedicated now to LENR I well know there is life outside LENR too. And I can tell you about many things. LENR is however unique
in many ways, it sis still going through interesting times.

MIT announces hot fusion breakthrough


About  Ed Storm's theory
Ed Storms has never taken reactor meltdown seriously in his formulation of LENR theory. But over time, reactor meltdown has been shown to be a major factor in the development of LENR technology by multiple LENR experimenters.

People who have successfully produced a gainful LENR reaction have first started out with a succession of reactor meltdowns. Rossi has stated that in the beginning of his development, he melted down hundreds of his reactors.

ME356 has also explained how he melted down his reactors until he figured out how to moderate the LENR reaction.

Recently, another new and sucessful Rossi replicator has melted down multiple reactors until he figured out how to control the reaction.

And let us not forget Alexander Parkhomov who in the beginning accumulated a bushel of melted reactor fragments of his first reactor attempts.

If Ed Storms does not want to deal with a major behavioral characteristic of the LENR development cycle; if Ed wants to ignore what is happening during reactor meltdown; how does Ed's theories advance the understanding of the Rossi LENR+ method.

Even Pd/D technology has seen electrolytic LENR systems melt down, but Ed's theories cannot even explain this condition.

This basic question that Ed must answer in this theory is what produces the LENR reaction, how does this reaction gets out of control and how is the reaction moderated to a steady state condition when this supercritical condition sets in.

About Rossi's achievments

Rossi's technical approach has been replicated by at least three experimenters that I know about and maybe more that I don't know about. These replications provide grounds to question the opinion of the Rossi detractors. It also provides grounds to keep an open mind about the efficacy of the nickel/lithium/hydrogen LENR reaction that we call LENR+ 

GREGORY GOBLE about FASTNESS and LENR- answer to my editorial about Fastness

Fastness, an excellent choice for the title. Its' meaning is rich with complexities. 

Fastness describes an ability to not move, to be fixed in place, as in colour fastness.
Also the quality of how swiftly things move or operate.

A place that is difficult to get to or that can be easily defended if it is attacked. 

Consider as well, fastness as the ability for an organism to resist a toxic substance.

Each of these meanings can be applied to aspects of the history of cold fusion/LENR science.

My Heart Always

My heart always goes
To the mountain fastness

My heart overflows
With joyful gladness

My heart always shows
Peace through the madness

My heart gently holds
All painful sadness

My heart always knows
Love is the way

The nove I; Gattopardo (The leopard) by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa is one of my favorites, in my dream I was reading it again and therefore have I have chosen these quotes- they tell much, for LENR too.



Dear Ed,

I have received now:

Obviously, this was announced on my Blog as soon as it appeared a few days ago., however now I will ask you an essential question.
You repeatedly told that you are very discontented with the LENR community, too many researchers have original, unfounded ideas and are ignoring the basic known facts on which your theory is firmly based.
OK, still true in part- and consider the opposition of the LANR people, Swartz and Hagelstein- however my impression based on discussions is that actually your Theory is popular, accepted- you have many admirers and followers. 
I am an admirer but not a follower just this is not relevant for what I am asking you now.
In my best years when I lead the research lab from OLTCHIM we have before starting any Project, "What will we get if this is a Total, 100% Success?"

Suppose everybody starts using your ideas, your Theory becomes the Standard, you are becoming the WWLENR Leader, get the task, power, funding and all the means necessary to organize the LENR research activity worldwide- can you describe the global scenario and make prediction for the development of the Field? Please eliminate modesty from the equation. Thank you for a constructive answer!


Thanks Peter. What you describe about my ideas being followed and sometimes accepted is reassuring but not always obvious.  Part of the problem results because LENR itself is not accepted. Nevertheless, the kind of people and attitudes in the LENR field are different from those I experienced when I worked at LANL and was involved with other fields of science.  Also, as is becoming apparent, many people who have a more conventional approach to the discussion of science are becoming interested but do not contribute on CMNS, which is the focus of my frustration.  As these people get involved and bring to bear the successful kind of interaction other fields of science experience, the field will move ahead more rapidly.  I think what we are seeing is an exhaustion of patience with the failed ideas based on imagination and quantum physics.  Clearly, a different approach is required.  Finally, people have nothing to lose by taking my approach.  So, maybe I only need to be patient, which is not one of my natural quantities.


Third Parties in Rossi v. IH Court Case File Joint Motion to Dismiss Counter Claims Against Them

E-Cat novita di ottobre 2016


I have been thinking over the material I read in Krivit's book and at 1st thought I could do an easy review of it but am now wondering just what the book really tells me and what I can retell from it.
In the broader sense, it is the book of a person (Krivit) who has built up a lot of knowledge of CF, LENR & LENR+ and has come to understand the areas of major interest and critical contention (especially the apparent incorrect assumptions of D + D => fusion event).  Krivit has always impressed me as one of the sharpest minds in the CF/LENRs field and a tenacious researcher who was and is intent on getting to a 'truth' even at the expense of personal relationships with those he deals with along the way.
The book delves into the personalities, actions and convictions of the major players of the era (particularly from Pons & Fleischmann  on)  in a warts and all fashion which in some ways comes across as unfortunate as there is a constant critical air that permeates the writing.
Few people written about get much praise as there is quite a bit of criticism for many of the most famous participants. There aren't many heros. In fact, some reputations appear to be' trashed' by claims made in the book. I have chosen not to name anyone who gets criticised as an interested reader can find out for themselves.
The praise in this book mostly goes to Widom and Larsen (notably Larsen). The book paints a strong picture of their LENRS theory being the only salvation of the field in that the W & L theory is said to have been accepted by even the greatest critics of the whole Cold Fusion argument (including Robert L Park and others). However these former critics are said to have only relented when they accepted W & L's case for neutron capture vs a Fusion event.
One should end the book with a strong conviction that LENR & LENR+ are proven and real phenomena but that strong doubts still exist as to current levels of scalability of the effect. However, there is also a strong emphasis on great progress finally starting to be made even if Andrea Rossi's eCat claims take a hammering under the Krivit blowtorch of investigation and detailed analysis.
In retrospect, this book is a valuable and informative read but I will say that the book by Brett Holverstott about Randall MIlls & the Hydrino discovery, was such a pleasure to read that any subsequent book about new science read by my myself (such as Krivit's book), had a very very hard act to follow.
I will probably buy the next book in the set. I do see great value in Steven Krivit's expertise and knowledge of the subject.

Hydrogen is often described as the fuel of the future, particularly when applied to hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles. One of the main obstacles facing this technology -- a potential solution to future sustainable transport -- has been the lack of a lightweight, safe on-board hydrogen storage material. A major new discovery has shown that hydrocarbon wax rapidly releases large amounts of hydrogen when activated with catalysts and microwaves.

And the Motto used here:
could be repeated now- it is my creation, anyway..


Solving the problems of LENR means actually to find out how to convert a genius miscovery in a working useful  discovery. My opinion is that standard, conformist methods will not help much.
Sincerely, I  think this approach to the LENR problem- going simply slowly, scientifically, stepwise, systematically, straightly is steering severe stagnative suicide

History will show if I am right or I err greatly- I will find the necessary means to come back and acept my blunder, if the case.

Rossi: QuarkX Commercialization Depends of 5 Sigma

Palladium hydride- Wikipedia audio

Jean Francois Geneste
At the SSICCF20 conference in China, I have proven that if we have the right to use the axiom of choice, like quantum phyisicits do, then we can prove that in thermodynamics we can violate the first principle... Moreover, the proof of this 
result gives a method to achieve this. I therefore suggest the readers of this post to think about the comparison between this result and the energy of vacuum which plagues quantum physics. Indeed, on the one hand we would have infinite energy outside a physical system through physical manipulations, on the other, we have infinite energy in quantum physics outside nothing (i.e. Vacuum). Now, this result asks the question whether we must admit the axiom of choice in physics. I would be Wtempted to say yes! With all the consequences this can have... :)
