To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all. (Oscar Wilde)  

Do not just exist. Live! (Brian Krans)

I have never had the slightest doubt that Cold Fusion- LENR exists. If you examine my old cold fusion "personal history" writings you will see that actually my technological optimism has predicted it. When something is born with such terrible delays and difficulties in a "one step forward, two steps back" as Hot Fusion technology- then human creativity will necessarily find an alternative way.
The advent of Cold Fusion went very badly, in my opinion mainly because its striking otherness- it is not a mild form of hot fusion- was not recognized. nor from outside, neither from inside. Plus it was discovered in a system and in circumstances in which it can happen rarely and in an underdeveloped form.
So immediately, cohorts of angry physicists have denied its very existence- and this continues sporadically in the present. LENR is a subject much to great and complex to be let in the hands and brains of nuclear physicists- they use a false identity of LENR to justify its killing.

Times are changing: during a very recent dispute on a LENR forum the old problem of the existence of cold  fusion/LENR it was seen that the existence of Cold Fusion is not a problem more. As Edmund Storms, who beyond of being an all round expert in the field has an admirably consistent  CF/LENR system of thinking-philosophy - has
stated: "We now need to address the real questions in a rational way."
This has inspired me to tell you what I think.
To be or not to be, to exist or not, is indeed a question too small for LENR. A question that deserves a clear Mu answer- an answer much greater than the frame of the question. See please about Mu:

Mere existence of LENR is actually not relevant at all. What counts - and here I am forced to use an antropomorphic metaphor- the question is if LENR is LIVING, that is is growing, improving, developing, multiplying, diversifying- all these in some useful way as a source of energy. See the Mottoes.
On EGO OUT I have told you many times about the role of metaphors in thinking, about their important functions- expressive, exegetic, explanatory and exploratory in management- metaphors can be really useful in understanding complex and even weird issues. As you can see from the references, anthropomorphic metaphors are "special" and you have to use them with much care. However it is not great philosophy to distinguish between an "only existent" and a really living LENR system. Living LENR  systems now have to fight for survival- violent death is very frequent. Just existent systems an exhibit some zombie type features.

During my life I had good ideas and some very bad ideas. The worst was probably inspired by the movie: "The young Tom Edison"(1940): I have synthesized tri-nitro-glycerine in my "lab". You have to add very slowly a mixture of concentrated nitric and sulphuric acid to glycerine on an ice bath. I had luck anf survived.
But now I have an even more idea re. LENR: living LENR systems  result from activating hydrogen and making the metal receptive. (the DGT principle). Many possibilities for hydrogen, however with metals it is more difficult. What is worse 
perhaps it is absolutely impossible to obtain living LENR systems below a critical temperature- according to Piantelli's teachings this is the Debye temperature of the metal. Pernicious idea I accept= it can be about the surface dynamics that creates
active sites on the lattice of metal; it could be called the "Surfdyn curse"
Ed Storms Michelson-Morley type experiment can demonstrate the contrary- it could
show that temperature is not determinant and there are low temperature living (and prospering) LENR systems too. Then PdD wet systems still can have a future.

I have told you about evil sites yesterday.
An example: Is this indeed a malicious site as my PC and anti-virus say?

Cold fusion lenr - SBAR

7 mins ago - The Spitzer Space Telescope is a NASA mission managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. This website is maintained by the Spitzer Science Center, located on the campus of the California Institute of Technology and part of NASA's Infrared Processing and Analysis Center.

I get 4 to 6 such dubious ones per day...They seem to be LENR related but lead to ads, to FUCKBOOK and similar ones or nowhere. Annoying.


1)Marianne Macy: Report of Excess Heat and Neutrons from Russian Experiments Sergei Tcvetkov Work in Nurnberg Shows Encouraging Results with Titanium and Deuterium
At the official Russian LENR website too:
An excellent article, I wish Marianne will do an interview with me too, it can be good for my failing IQ! Great questions illuminates, the answers play a secondary.

2) MFMP to run new Glowstick test Aug 34th
Great! Waiting, wishing them success!

5) An other beautiful nucleons-nuclei model
V.A Shashlov
How to increase the efficiency of "thermal" cold fusion?

It is presented the mechanism of thermal cold fusion based on the model of atomic nuclei built from nucleons having forms of rectangular tetraheders. It is proposed to change lithium with beryllium in the composition in order to increase the efficiency of the LENR generators

Dear Andrea Rossi,

Based on your response, I gather the 1MW eCat line and the eCat X line will be independent. Each line will grow and be modified as the market dictates. This assumes:

a. You have sufficient manufacturing capabilities to independently produce each line to the level the market requires.
b. Both lines generate sufficient profit margins to warrant their continuation

Steven N. Karels:
a- yes
b- yes
Warm Regards,

  1. Most of us men in the field of cold fusion hope or have hoped for an interview with Marianne or at least a chance to linger with her. Instead we are left but to curse Mike Melich for sweeping her away.

  2. Rossi granted US patent today - some diescription of fuel element fuel. Also Vessela has a nice web site following Ross - let see what she says, soon!
