The measure of a surprise is bound both to newness and prior unlikeliness. If you have a soul of mathematician, please read: http://ilab.usc.edu/surprise/
The results of the long time Rossi tests are surprising and unexplained for the time given and are triggering a broad spectrum of opinions and feelings from enthusiasm to the scientifically and ethically motivated desire to kill them.
The analytical results are like the read color for the bull; four angry Swedish professors have told that “the results would set the entire nuclear physics on its head” With one proper word: Blasphemy! New and new assassins are hired to destroy the test.
Actually, Defkalion has told the same dreadful things for more than 2 years ago explaining their results by nuclear interactions
(not reaction- both nuclei keep their identity), about nucleosynthesis of light elements and about transmutations.
The LENR community has not taken the facts realistically because the fusion model rules minds and theories and because
extreme complexity and non-linearity enjoy a deeply negative popularity. New ideas must dance as the old idea whistle.
Defkalion has demonstrated a very innovative thinking:
Their ICCF –17 paper:
“We have positive results, presented in this paper, from the analysis of NAE with XRF and isotopic mass-spectrometry-ICPMS methods before and after any such LENR of transmutations in:
• Fe-Co-Ni-Cu-Zn and K-Ca , with ppm changes
higher than any instrumental analysis error factor
• Li-Be-B species not present before the LENR,
detected only by isotopic analysis methods(ICPMS).
Any other species (D/T, He or others) were impossible to be traced maybe due to the very short period of their half time”.
It is important to understand their definition that the process is a dynamic system of the multi-stage set of reactions.
The phenomena we trigger and measure give us very strong evidence of a dynamic environment (system if you want) of a series of interactions between nuclei. These involve nuclei when we make hydrogen atoms reactive and nickel more receptive,
He sees further:
From now HENI means (see the PIM presentation p 8): Heat Energy from Nanoplasmonics/Nanoexplosions Interactions.
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_X3dbKt3jZORm5TSUF5ZUxKS0E/edit They also have understood the complexity of active sites- not only nickel is implied and that the NAE (environment is the complete reaction vessel.
However the DGT people know that for understanding the new source of energy growing in the techno-uteri of Hyperions and E-cats we have to know not only the initial and final products but also how they develop.
