My dear young friends,
Things change, that can be both excellent (e.g. when it is about progress (it is pleonastic to say “technological progress”; do you know other kind of real progress?) and a catastrophe e.g. when you realize that aging is not reversible. This time it is a change that simply makes me a bit sad.
My intention was to tell you about “reverse motivation” You are going to work in an awfully difficult field of research, I cannot convince you it will be fine and glory is waiting for you. On the contrary, just because it will be so bas, you who are special, a great personality in becoming, you will insist to work for LENR.

I am also sending you three lists all coming from the fine Cultural Offering Blog to which I have subscribed with enthusiasm- it is really cultural in the best sense of this word. The author/owner Kurt Harden was so generous that he included Ego Out to the list of “25 Blogs Guaranteed to Make You Smarter” and I am reading the other 24 as much as I can. (I almost hear a whisper: “Alzheimer retardant, does it work?”
I advice you to discover the author of this writings, Nicholas Bate. The word excellent was created for him too.
Be bold 101:
You need to be VERY bold!
Good professionals are the real noblemen of meritocracy!
The architects of progress.
You will need plenty of luck too! Do you know it?
But I offer you a somewhat smaller supplement, too, in the spirit of reverse motivation:

For LENR, No 19 and 10 are perhaps the most efficient
