LENR FRONTLINE REPORT: undecided battle, the war continues.
"To be intelligent means to NOT mix (confuse) the points of view" (Mihail Ralea)
Lack of intelligence has a somewhat broader extent however it surely comprises mixing of incompatible, immiscible things.
The recently published Report re. Rossi’s Hot Cat has caused a battle of such immiscible ideas – more precisely memes. It was written a lot about it and all I want is to answer the fundamental questions: What war was this? Who were the combatants? How will be this war finished?
The battle per se had no clear winners and no clear losers –except reason, logic and common sense. Applying two stages of radical euphemization I can tell that this paper: http://news.discovery.com/tech/alternative-power-sources/5-reasons-cold-fusion-bunk-130528.htm is the worst I have seen in 24+ years of Cold Fusion history, a blasphemy against taxonomy. It mixes 5 things in the most unprofessional mode- a real monster bred by the sleep of reason.
Otherwise the Big Four Rossi killers – Joshua Cude, Steven Krivit, Gary Wright and Mary Yugo have reacted as this was expected from them. (Mary was the fastest, congrats!) Many other new kids on the block have reacted similarly. An old rule: if you have no arguments, no facts you manufacture them and add them to the reality. I think they have read my analysis saying my 20 problem solving rules were able to solve >99% of the real problems but less than 80% of the imaginary ones.
Rule 17 says it clearly: “NOT always the existent, real problems, but many times the fictive, imaginary ones are the most difficult to be solved.”
Using this weapon is easy- you add imaginary problems to the real ones regarding the Report and then claim that those new problems are insoluble- that means the report is flawed. By reading a few ten thousands of comments you could easily earn a diploma in distorted logic. The confusion is total and even good and honest people will write self-contradictory open end papers like this.
The Hundred Years War had duration of 116 years (1337-1453); the Cold Fusion War will be known as the Twenty Five Years LENR War and will last roughly 25 years. That means that the coming months will bring decisive events on more fronts.
Just watch the news and especially this blog, Ego Out.
But the battle of
is not simply a continuation of the war between the LENR believers and the Cold
Fusion skeptics. No, actually it was a battle between LENR+ Rossi style and
his personal enemies (Rossi is very effective in creating enmity) The rest is just context.
The classic LENR people and their traditional adversaries have mixed in naturally but it was not more their battle. It was a LENR+ battle on an other frontline...
\The relationship between LENR (Pd based, smart static nanostructures, etc.- weak, sporadic heat effect) and LENR+- much enhanced excess heat) is approximately similar to that of a caterpillar and butterfly. LENR to LENR+ is a radical metamorphosis. To speak about fixed active sites/NAE and dynamic active sites/NAE is the core of the difference but still a simplification.
Again about mixing: LENR and LENR+ systems have to be considered separately, they represent different levels, stages and directions of development. We have to treat them separately; do not mix cherries and pumpkins. (idiotic metaphor, take it only dimensionally)
The final battles will take place very probably between a LENR+ technology smarter than Rossi’s and the last place will be the market.
Some of enemies of the coming LENR+ technology are so obsessed with their unbelief that they will look with suspicion even to their own new LENR+ based central heater.
The decisive technical Armageddons will come soon and the enemies of progress will learn that they are no more confronting LENR a poor myriapode with a lot of Achilles heels, but LENR+ the invincible technology.
