The link between LENR and Hydrino.
I am not sure that Mills agrees with the suggestion that the hydrino might be single hydrogen atom Rydberg matter. Rydberg matter (RM) can be formed using photons. Once the first (RM) is being formed using high currents, the generated photons may induce further forming of RM thus causing Self sustained Mode (SSM) as Mills claims. The energy of the hydrino's may be high enough to cause fusion with neighbouring atoms (Ni, H, Li, Al). That looks like LENR. The question is: What process generates most of the energy, fusion (LENR) or the forming of the hydrino? Forming hydrino's KeV energy excess levels are approached, LENR (H-7Li fusion, Be splitting ->He) generates MeV energies. Rossi was asked if he thought RM plays a role in LENR, but his answer was 'No'. Nevertheless also in LENR SSM can take place, which may be the same as Mills has observed. Time will tell whether or not there is a link between the hydrino and LENR.

Civilization continues to be transformed by our ability to harness energy beyond human and animal power. A series of industrial and agricultural revolutions have allowed an increasing fraction of the world population to heat and light their homes, fertilize and irrigate their crops, connect to one another and travel around the world. All of this progress is fuelled by our ability to find, extract and use energy with ever increasing dexterity. Research in materials science is contributing to progress towards a sustainable future based on clean energy generation, transmission and distribution, the storage of electrical and chemical energy, energy efficiency, and better energy management systems.

    5 Scientific Myths You Probably Believe About The Universe

    Regarding the statement in the article as follows:

    “But in the idea of entropic gravity — as well as some other scenarios (like qbits) — gravitation or even space and time themselves might emerge from other entities in a similar fashion.”

    Our understanding about how the fundamental forces of nature work could be wrong.

    Erik Verlinde not only postulates that gravity emerges from entropic forces, but also the other erstwhile fundamental forces such as the electroweak force. The electroweak force is what LENR revolves around.

    Just like gravity can change in strength based on phase space imbalance, so too can the weak force change in strength by an imbalance in phase space. Entropy might turn out to be the primal mover in the cosmos from which all force emerges so that what we now consider as fundamental force emerges as a derivative reaction to minimize the entropic phase space imbalance between regions in space/time.

    What is phase space imbalance? An example of phase space imbalance is an inflated balloon where the pressure inside the balloon is greater than the pressure outside the balloon. When the balloon is deflated, there is a force generated that pushes air out of the balloon to the outside so that the entropy of the air can be minimized.

    In LENR, there is a phase space imbalance that increases the weak force. That phase space imbalance is produced by the existence of a Bose condensation or superconductive state that develops in which the incoherent outside environment seeks to destroy the coherent state though the minimization of entropy.

    In the video below, Erik Verlinde identifies this type of entropic force as “Adiabatic reaction force”. This is the force that develops to minimize entropy when phase space becomes imbalanced.

    In LENR, there are coherent processes that develop which enhance the strength of the weak force when the entropic imbalance is being stabilized.

    Here below is Erik Verlinde’s explanation of phase space and the how force is produced from it.

  4. Coherence is fundamental

    The throughout the vacuum, electromagnetic fluctuations are produced at a constant average rate under the purview of the uncertainty principle. The name that tags these fluxuations is virtual particle production. These fluxuations in the fabric of space-time is called “quantum spin liquid”.

    Quantum spin liquids may be considered "quantum disordered" ground states of spin systems, in which zero point fluctuations are so strong that they prevent conventional magnetic long range order.

    More interestingly, the vacuum as a quantum spin liquid is a prototypical example of ground state with massive many-body entanglement, of a degree sufficient to render these states distinct phases of matter.

    The vacuum is completely entangled at long range as identical patterns of virtual particle emerge throughout the vacuum, with each pattern strongly entangling other identical patterns.

    Just by chance, patterns of virtual particles come into existence at wide spread locations in the vacuum and become connected.

    Quantum entanglement, a phenomenon in which virtual particles as fluxuations in the electromagnetic field, shed their separate identities and assume a shared existence, their properties becoming strongly correlated with one another. The virtual particles act identically no matter how far away they are separated. Normally physicists think of these correlations as spanning space, linking far-flung locations in a phenomenon that Albert Einstein famously described as “spooky action at a distance.”

    Even harder to accept, there is a growing body of research investigating how these correlations can span time as well. What happens now can be correlated with what happens later, in ways that elude a simple mechanistic explanation. In effect, you can have spooky action at a delay.

    These correlations seriously mess with our intuitions about time and space. Not only can two events be correlated, linking the earlier one to the later one, but two events can become correlated such that it becomes impossible to say which is earlier and which is later. Each of these events is the cause of the other, as if each were the first to occur.

    But perhaps most important, researchers are working towards a new way to unify quantum theory with Einstein’s general theory of relativity, which describes the structure of space-time. The world we experience in daily life, in which events occur in an order determined by their locations in space and time, is just a subset of the possibilities that quantum physics allows.

    Some physicists take this as evidence for a profoundly nonintuitive worldview, in which quantum correlations are more fundamental than space-time, and space-time itself is somehow built up from correlations among events, in what might be called quantum relationalism. The argument updates Gottfried Leibniz and Ernst Mach’s idea that space-time might not be a God-given backdrop to the world, but instead might derive from the material contents of the universe.

    In this view quantum entanglement is more fundamental than space time because quantum entanglement generates space time. Quantum entanglement is not sensitive to the constraints of space time, that is, quantum entanglement connects events without regard to distance or the past and future.

    The key to control space time and the forces that operate in space time is the control of entanglement and coherence. This is what LENR engineering is all about.

    1. Yes, if entanglement is not an rare situation but happens everywhere (as Erik Verlinde seems to say), then our understanding of matter and how it behaves requires a full update. Then we are only at the beginning of our understanding of the universe as well as of what matter is. I am worried that science, having too much inertia, will explore this further soon, so I am not sure that I will witness the New Understanding of Matter. But let's hope for the best.

  5. ​How coherence manipulation produces force.

    In the EmDrive, microwaves setup standing electromagnetic waves inside the metal cone that disturbs the coherence in the vacuum so that virtual particle coherence is reduced. This application of energy to the vacuum is similar to inflating a balloon by increasing the air pressure inside the balloon. There is a unbalancing of the vacuum between the inside of the cone and the outside that remains neutral. This is like a balloon that has a higher air pressure on the inside of the balloon than the outside. An adiabatic inertial reaction force is produced to rebalance the imbalance setup in the vacuum generated by the microwaves. This inertial force attempts to rebalance the uneven vacuum energy distribution that exists between the inside and outside of the cone. The cone is configured to focus this adiabatic inertial reaction force in a desired direction.

    The balloon is not very good. The air pressure inside the balloon is equal throughout the volume of the balloon, but in a metal cone, the standing wave pattern of the standing waves produced by the magnetron are unequal throughout the volume of the cone so there will be less force generated in one given section of the voluum than in another. The unequal distribution of vacuum energy will resolve into a force vector in a preferred direction. The key to optimizing the force produced by the cone is to maximize the imbalance in the emf standing wave distribution inside the cone.

    One way to test this theory, is to demonstrate the reduction of the half life of an radioactive isotope in the regions of positive vacuum energy against the result produce in the regions of negative vacuum energy. The positive vacuum energy should produce a reduction in the half life in the radioactive isotope.

    This experiment can be done in a home microwave with a turntable. Find the zone of maximum microwave resonance and place the isotope there. You should see a reduction of the half life as a result in the amplified strength of the weak force at the point of maximum microwave strength.

    By the way, this amplification of the weak force through injecting energy into the vacuum is how George Egely produces LENR in his microwave reactor.


  6. "7. Will be ever demonstrated and accepted my idea that PdD is an underdeveloped, incomplete for of LENR and will not be used for applications because it is missing the actionable parameters?"

    No, because Pd/D2 is not the source of the problem(s). The source of the problem(s) is the fact that electrolychemistry is DIFFICULT, given the large number of variables to be identified and controlled, but that doesn't prevent it from being widely used by society.

    I would take a large bet that any electrolytic attempts using Ni/H2 would have even larger difficulties.
