I commented there:
It is a good initiative to discuss this vital problem of LENR here.
I also have analysed it on my blog Ego Out and I invite the readers of BuildThe Entreprise to visit my blog or write me.
In my opinion:
a) the problem of bad reproducibility has to be judged in association with 2 other issues
weakness of the heat release and its short duration;
b) it is a "wicked problem" (see Wikipedia) even intractable if a high, say over 95% success rate is the target;
c) for the cradle system of Cold Fusion the Fleischmann Pons Cell the uncontrolled
and uncontrollable blockage of the active sites (a.k.a NAE) by gaseous molecules that are not deuterium coming from the ubiquitous air is the main cause of the bad function; add to this the low density of these active sites (valid for the systems with preformed smart and even smarter nano-structures)
d) essential- the situation has to be considered as absolutely intolerable. it is not a problem we can live with, a solution as to be found.
And it was found and is now developed on the principle that desperate diseases need desperate remedies, here desperate means radical. It is about the change of the mechanism by which the active sites are formed. The new systems imply the
continuous formation of active sites in situ- a good equilibrium between the natality, activity and mortality of active sites. LENR+ adds a new dimension- time to the classic
see please the LENR+ Manifesto a sketch of this issue:
LENR+ Manifesto and Plan. (sketch)
1. Situation: The field has PROBLEMS
2. Cause: It appeared too EARLY
3. Difficulty: Extreme COMPLEXITY
4. Solution: TECHNOLOGY first!
- No PURE SCIENCE!
- SCIENTIFIC METHOD not applicable.
- HYBRID METHOD necessary
5. No INNER SOLUTION found
- Usual SYSTEMS hopeless
- To destroy MYTHS, MEMES!
- Radical PARADIGM shift.
6 OUTER SOLUTIONS emerging: LENR+
7 Task: to differentiate LENR/LENR+!
- LENR is discovery, LENR+ is invention,
- LENR and LENR+ have different mechanisms;
- LENR+ based on enhanced excess heat,
- LENR+ dynamic system of multi-stage processes;
- LENR+ is based on nuclear interactions, not reactions,
- LENR+ needs a productive meta-theory
8. Task: define, describe LENR+ mechanism;
to make hydrogen reactive and metal receptive
Polariton, Nanoplasmonics, Resonances -BEC, sequences…
Trans-theory in statu-nascendi
9. Task LENR+ R&D by HOLISTIC approach
- optimization performances/control, scale up, diversification
The solution is in development and the reproducibility problem will disappear as a bad
