Dear Prof. Huw Price,

Please accept my deep gratitude and the sincere expression of my admiration for what is written in your bold paper, but also for how it is written.  The paper has impact, influence and many echoes. It is a blessing for our oppressed, ignored and exiled unlucky field- now I prefer to call it LENR- Low Energy Nuclear Reactions. My prediction-opinion is that when the field will grow up and arrive to an impressive technological maturity the most adequate name for it will be UEHMDI- i.e.
Useful Energy from Hydrogen Metal Deep Interactions (however a much shorter one will be used- what is in a name?) 
Beyond gratitude I think I owe you much more-  an explanation for why had it lasted so long. more than 27 years till Fleischmann and Pons' dream about a source of energy is just becoming real, only now? There were more, over-discussed factors that have contributed to the degradation of Cold Fusion to pariah science- dogmatism, arrogant skepticism, paradigm paralysis, dominant post-logical thinking, expanding trollocracy, sabotage by Hot Fusion people, etc.. All these together could not fight for long with really good, reliable, steadily progressing experimental results and these are still missing  However the huge merit of this system is that it had demonstrated that Cold Fusion exist and so the idea survived.
But can it grow up, become mature and useful? Unfortunately not likely.

Remember the IMRA France episode the Founders having funds  and being protected against enemies and detractors but unable to solve the problems. Reason: in the given cradle system PdD electrolytic cell a la F&P' the problems (reproducibility, intensification of heat excess, control, long range work) are not solvable.
Actually you have already DISCOVERED this- you speak about a Cold Fusion Egg; I have used larva, tadpole, underdeveloped primitive form of LENR the essence is that the system PdD wet is hit by incompleteness- it is not a really viable form of LENR and has no technological future as it is; it has to be radically changed.  The main obvious causes are that it must work at low temperatures (up to the boiling point of D2O) and the electrochemical system is dirty  by definition- especially residual gases other than deuterium are killing the sites where the excess heat generating reactions are taking place.
Please take a look to my 24 years old publication that had no impact, nobody has liked catalysis and surface dynamics:

Applying it to the modern trends IN LENR- Piantelli, Rossi etc., I concluded that there are two forms of the process- the incomplete and static LENR and the complete, dynamic which I called LENR+- the secret of Rossi . I wrote a lot on my blog Ego Out but see please the essence here:

It was a historical bad chance, misfortune that Fleischmann and Pons have discovered a not adequate form of Cold Fusion/LENR I have coined the blasphemous term of "miscovery" for the event. But one of the brightest  miscoveries of the history of science!

It exists a standard procedure to solve problems that seem insoluble, see please

Rule no 18 shows that the premises of the problem must be changed in our favor. No
usable LENR in the cool cells, let's go to hot gas phase up to the melting point of the metal and perhaps higher, a new world of possibilities, smart recipes and principles. 
LENR was discovered, LENR that works must be invented- engineering is the key.
This happens now- more and more, faster and faster.

Dear Professor Price,

The idea I have presented to you makes the reputation trap problem and what's connected to it  more complex, but much more rational, understandable and logically consistent.
If we want to re-think the not-so-happy past of Cold Fusion accepting and including the idea- possible you will have some revelations.

Much more important is to consider, accept and even embrace the idea for the future strategies in LENR science and technology.

Honesty obliges me to say that the idea of incompleness of the cradle LENR system
is my personal "belief" it is unpopular and not discussed in our circles. But as long I live and write I will fight for it.

Very truly yours,

The IMRA episode is significant, I consider it a proof of PdD's incompleteness

4) From Andrea Rossi's Blog
Dear Andrea,

Once the ERV report is delivered to you, what do your expect your next steps will be concerning sharing the information contained in it?

Many thanks,

Frank Acland:
This is an issue that will have to be agreed upon by all the interested parties and also will depend on the results. We must patiently wait for the report. The ERV asked two months, so I think the report will be issued around half April.
Warm Regards,

To see how nuclear physics develops

Challenges in the description of the atomic nucleus: Unification and interdisciplinarity 
Eur. Phys. J. A (2016) 52: 64*~hmac=9330d53e0073da06712b3f7486bd26a268ef08a164e139609493225a162b7ff1

Nuclear physics, in general, and theoretical nuclear physics, in particular, have provided the physics community at large, among other things, with the paradigm of spontaneous symmetry breaking phenomena in finite many-body systems. The study of the associated mechanisms of symmetry restoration has shed light on the microscopic structure of the corresponding condensates, in particular on the superfluid phase, allowing to study Cooper pair tunnelling into superfluid nuclei (related to the Josephson effect), in terms of individual quantum states and reaching, in doing so, a new milestone: that of unifying structure and reactions, these last processes being found at the basis of the formulation of quantum mechanics (probability interpretation, Born). In the process, nuclear physicists have extended the validity of BCS theory of superconductivity to the single Cooper pair situation, let alone discovering unexpected mechanism to break gauge invariance. The insight obtained from pair transfer research is likely to have important consequences in the study of double charge exchange processes, and thus in the determination of the nuclear matrix element associated with neutrinoless double beta decay, eventually providing an important test of the Standard Model. Time, thus, seems ripe for nuclear theorists to take centre stage, backed by a wealth of experimental information and by their interdisciplinary capacity to connect basic physical concepts across the borders. With the help of these elements they can aim at fully revealing the many facets of their femtometer many-body system, from vacuum zero point fluctuations to new exotic modes of nuclear excitations and of their interweaving, resulting in powerful effective field theories. Unless. Unless they are not able to free themselves from words like ab initio or fundamental, and to adapt a relax attitude concerning Skyrme, tensor, etc., forces, as well as regarding the quest for “the” Hamiltonian. 


  1. Mr Rossi did not have a good reputation.
    But he has built a good one if F9 positive.

  2. Given the value Mr. Rossi has shown in the production and utility of boiling water via cold fusion it seems clear that Pons & Fleischmann's French Icarus boiling cell was very much the precursor to practical cold fusion technology. The eschewing and chewing of Pd D cold fusion via attacks by those hostile and by cold fusion groupie purile demands for some other form of energy use is not seen in the history of this field to have been either a positive or constructive contribution.

  3. As You Go Through Life Poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox is an inspirational poem. It was published in Poems of Cheer (1910) by Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

    Don’t look for the flaws as you go through life;
    And even when you find them,
    It is wise and kind to be somewhat blind
    And look for the virtue behind them.
    For the cloudiest night has a hint of light
    Somewhere in its shadows hiding;
    It is better by far to hunt for a star,
    Than the spots on the sun abiding.

    The current of life runs ever away
    To the bosom of God’s great ocean.
    Don’t set your force ‘gainst the river’s course
    And think to alter its motion.
    Don’t waste a curse on the universe –
    Remember it lived before you.
    Don’t butt at the storm with your puny form,
    But bend and let it go o’er you.

    The world will never adjust itself
    To suit your whims to the letter.
    Some things must go wrong your whole life long,
    And the sooner you know it the better.
    It is folly to fight with the Infinite,
    And go under at last in the wrestle;
    The wiser man shapes into God’s plan
    As water shapes into a vessel.

    1. Dear Sam,

      Beautiful notable poem, thank you much for sending it.

  4. I like the Poem. I will give Rossi a pass for the weekend

  5. Thanks Brian
    I hope Rossi pulls a Prank and
    announces EVR report April 1.
    Have a good Easter.
