Critical thinking without constructive thinking is destructive.
(Unknown but he/she is right!)
1. About the Hot Cat immersed in molten tin idea
My writing of yesterday is mainly about an idea. The idea can be bad or good, positive or negative to use Rossi's stereotype, but please do not ignore it! I will write about it to all the
front-line warrior replicators- have started with Alexander Parkhomov- who has a really pragmatic research strategy I like. He wanted to show that the Hot Cat generates excess heat not more not less- and has shown it. Now I am waiting what does he think about the idea but I know it is not his first priority- he has his own method..
What I have imagined is - in its initial form - in the same category. It seems the trigger of the heat generating process is the TEMPERATURE - at a critical temperature 1050-1200 C it starts. Now, it is irrelevant if this temperature is achieved by electric heating or by using
an adequate heat transfer agent to heat up the reactor. My option was for molten tin just because it is used in the really huge float glass industry. The difference between a working and an inactive Hot Cat will be stated easily. Warning - it can be a dangerous experiment- IF it works!
2. About the donation of healthy Hot Cats to the testers
Contrary to all my principles, I repeat here a message of Feb 1 that was totally ignored by the LENR world and this hurts me:
A challenge for Andrea Rossi and Industrial Heat
Generosity is a great virtue, I admire it with awe:
- taking in account that the Hot Cat is scientific;
- if it will become technological then it will have a completely different structure;
- it is an other solution not the one used in the 1MW plants or the commercial domestic Warm Cats;
- knowing that the Hot Cat can answer some fundamental questions;
- being worried due the thermofragility of the first generation of Parkhomov reactors
How noble and magnanimous could it be from Rossi and his Industrial Heat allies to offer to Parkhomov and coming testers their high quality and endurance Hot Cats- charged with reactants or even empty?
This could be an example for the future generations of scientists.
Despite writing this, I am not an idealist but I know a thing or two about reputation management!
3. About empathy versus e-kibitzocracy in the field
I do NOT think that researcher has infinite time, is working for long years only on this problem, has nothing else to do and I believe his very first duty is NOT to answer to all the questions he receives by e-mail from the true experts. Research is dynamic, a process- improvement, problems and progress.
LENR's ENCOUNTER WITH REALITY- TODAY
I admire the professionalism, creativity, skills and energy of the MFMP boys however the problem is wicked
So I ask:
a) can we call the test an "ordeal"?
b) isn't emissivity a four-letter word?
c) Is Parkhomov a maestro in using Occam\s Razor? Or, a great Alexander cutting the Gordian Knot?
These thoughts were suggested by the most important event and action today- and till Friday the "Lugano resurrected" experiment of the MFMP team:
more will come
Gary Wright still tries to shutdown Rossi:
A strange report and Rossi's opinion about it:
We know already about the micro-accelerator theory of this Ukrainian scientist but her probably it is up-to-dated

In LENR do we measure the right things?
