These writings are about what young LENR researchers have to learn- in my opinion- on a meta-professional level i.e. beyond physics chemistry, materials science, nano-science and nanotechnology in order to effectively contribute to the flourishing of the coming New Energy Era.
There are many vital things you are not taught in the school, but you will need in life- forms of contact with reality and I am starting with managerial culture the pragmatic philosophy of the present.
Due to lack of massive feedback I have not started to build and adequate taxonomy yet, see please: http://egooutpeters.blogspot.ro/2011/08/taxonomy-mon-amour.html I think a good researcher must be excellent in doing
classifications; this is a very necessary but not sufficient tool. The taxonomic skill becomes very visible via the logical structure and fluency of publications papers, reports, books. It gives the decisive first impression.
Two essential concepts.
Based on his personal experience, especially at Defkalion Green Technologies, Yiannis Hadjichristos has called our attention to the fact that in such an extreme case of difficulty, even the greatest genius cannot make much without an excellent, harmonious efficient team .LENR is a peak of inter- and trans-disciplinarity, it needs first class experts in very diverse domain,
Lots of people able to work fine together. This idea has to be a recurrent leit-motif of our Course!
Personal Knowledge Management
This paragraph is not contradicting but complementing the fo5mer: individuals are more concrete and quantifiable and measurable and controllable than teams, at least in principle. Exactly as Monsieur Jourdain makes prose without knowing it, we all make knowledge management, a great generous concept that includes management of ignorance, too. PKM has an advanced. superior form, personal branding, a sign and measure of your personality and greatness, see for example:
Do not forget about your basic aim to become a human brand!
A special advantage is to be a genius:
At least to seem, or to be considered one as a justification why you are working for this super-challenging problem. It is really not so difficult. See please this:
What does the most comprehensive study of geniuses tell us about creativity?
It tells very interesting thing things, it speaks about FLOW a concept introduced by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, the superior, almost ecstatic pleasure of superior intellectual work. The ancient Greeks have used KAIROS, time with high value as opposed to CHRONOS for this state of spirit. Please do a serious search for FLOW and KAIROS. Geniuses are happy and their work makes them so.
What might young Einstein
ponder today: http://www.quora.com/Physics/What-might-young-Einstein-ponder-today
I don’t think anybody has the slightest doubt that young Einstein would be the leader of LENR research today; theory of relativity and his other discoveries being already here he would solve our problems brilliantly. We are missing him, it will last a bit more, however LENR is good hands, you will see. Uncle Albert, sleep well and dream about infinite energy!
Now suppose, my young reader is a fine talented researcher however not able to go over 6.5 on the Richter scale of intellectual earth-quakes; he still can become a fine expert by hard work. Here are the instructions:
What does it take to become an expert at anything?
Two fables and a paper
The first one is
The Solution- a business fable: ,
The solution is here and it remains invisible for those who take the decisions; this happens many times. Read please my Pdisaster paper, the poisoning hypothesis is here, it explains why PdD is unmanageable and despite this the idea is ignored.
In 100 Words Nurturing the Roots for Growth: https://mail.google.com/mail/?tab=wm#inbox/13d1aae5584b9ac6 It is a subtle idea about Growth, about what we see and what is hidden.
