This writing appears with one day delay due to the ants’ wisdom idea of AXIL – an important message for the LENR community-I had to publish with no delay.
It is stimulating to me that this morning has appeared a note: “International Academic Report on Cold Fusion Imminent” on Frank Acland’s E-Cat World. Author anonymous but the info is professionally written.
Intelligence is best defined as “the ability to not confound the points of view” however especially in research projects, it is also the ability to “process lower quality information- partial incomplete, partial redundant, contradictory, in part outright false, imaginary, cryptic, neutral or senseless all these mixed in unpredictable and incognoscible ways and proportions.” A bit long but real and made for the case of Rossi, you need much intelligence to follow him…
Rossi’s communication methods are, at least in part, justified, I feel empathy for him. The first short-time Report of 2013- a quite decent and serious work was dismissed not for its intrinsic imperfections but because Rossi could interfere
with the research so the Report was not quite independent.
I have disagreed e.g. in:
but with no success. The LENR community has also uncritically accepted without analysis the Luca Gamberale Report that tries to discredit a very good demo by
DGT, logically consistent. The Gamberale Report refers only to tests made by he author in unusual conditions.
“LENR community” is not a real entity but its collective spirit does not accept easily that its own existential and developmental problems could be solved by outsiders. And Rossi had all the time a non-ideal behavior that has aggravated the situation...
“Independent” means now a study executed at least 12,000 miles distance from the inventor, with all communication lines interrupted. Ergo, Rossi is practically forced to tell us that he has no idea about the results and will get the Report 3 days before it is published. He says repeatedly “cuculo” style that the report will be positive or negative, he cannot predict how. Actually it is obvious the Report will be both positive and negative- in a frame of expectations.
It is excluded it will be absolutely negative- total absence of excess heat measured each 5 seconds for >2000 hours. (pure masochism!) It will be not absolutely positive either- plenty of excess heat with no input energy i.e. COP infinite and heat level adjustable at will. (triumph at the 3rd power) Without a definition, positive or negative do not mean much, more exactly- nothing at all. I don’t know what is the hydrogen pressure in the HotCat but beyond any doubt it is very high mediatic pressure on Rossi to make the Report absolutely independent- something as impossible as useless.
Rossi, on his angelic side is extrovert and enjoys communicating
seeks the friendship of people, therefore he cannot work in isolation with no feedback and encouragement.
In a DIKW evaluation of this unknown Report, we must abuse of the interrogative approach- asking a lot of temporary unanswerable questions.
The first question: where will this Report be published? Even those who believe in miracles – it will probably NOT Nature (impact factor (21,323) or Science (impact factor 12,465) this would be the performance equivalent of climbing the Everest barefoot with nitrogen put in your oxygen bottles by enemies. My preference was the International Journal of hydrogen Energy (impact factor 2930) but the Professors have not consulted me. I am unable to guess the journal in which the Report will be published.
The heat release is intense, the Hot Cat is much bigger than an electrolytic LENR cell- plenty of data will be gathered.
The input-output balance for more months will allow us to “feel” the stability of the process…it will be a huge volume of INFORMATION. How well presented- it depends on the independent team.
KNOWLEDGE- Rossi says the Professors can publish what they wish and I really want this to be true. What will they give
KNOW NOTHING- the skeptics try to convince us that nothing relevant will be given, just a heap of unanalysable data. How this will be done – I let them to say.
KNOW WHAT- will be the excess heat demonstrated beyond any doubt, great and long term? At the end of the test, the Hot Cat was very tired, moribund or still having 8 of its 9 cat lives?
Will the COP increase and stabilize after the start period, will it be decently high- say well over 6- and constant or adjustable? Was the system in danger of runaway or of collapse? Was it stopped and restarted? Unexpected events? I am very curious-what has happened?
KNOW HOW- it is easy to understand that Andrea Rossi does not want to tell to the real and imaginary competition how the Hot Cat does work. In the same time he is aware that this time only by telling which reactions give the heat- he will be recognized as a great inventor and elite researcher. The essence is the chemical composition of the active core before and after the long reaction time. Composition is only a small part of what makes the system functional- the HotCat is not the useful cat- but Rossi plus the team of professors have a problem here, scientific and kind of diplomatic.
WISDOM Rossi has alluded many times he will present his Theory simultaneously with the Report. He has a great opportunity to demonstrate his wisdom. Will he do it, or not I don’t know. But this theory will change everything we knew about LENR. LENR+ is not like LENR, actually it is not genuine LENR, but a bunch of other processes.
Dear Reader- I have tried very hard to think logically here and I think I have succeeded in part. However logic as it is stated in:
“Logical thinking is that safe and beaten path on which you can go from one swamp to an other” (Karoly Simonyi)
Here the premises from which logic leads to conclusions are now quite swam-like. How they will be after the publication of the Report?
Just to mention that the author of the quote has written a book
about the cultural history of Physics, one of my models for my coming book
“Useful Energy from Hydrogen-Metal Deep Interaction”- Deeper than electrons.
