A process cannot be understood by stopping it.
Understanding must move with the flow of the process, must join it and flow with it."
-- The First Law of Mentat

(thanks to Mitchell Swartz who found it)

Ideas can be life-changing. Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea. (Jim Rohn) 
(many people are busy to shut the doors to new ideas, telling all are bad)

Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse. (Winston Churchill)
(the same with science and technology)


I am discussing many times about problem solving with my grandchildren. Usually the first rule is to define the problem, to understand it. However, there is a zeroth rule of problem solving:
Accept, embrace , like it, connect to it, consider it a fragment of your existence, live it. The zeroth rule  is valid for both mathematical  and real life problems.
It is especially applicable for problems on the far right side of the Medawar Zone -as LENR. 
For me the LENR problem is the creation and I apply the zeroth principle to it. I "love" it and I am trying to love it intelligently and creatively. That  means: to see it in context (maximum), connection (with its neighboring issues) in evolution (read please the first Motto and meditate upon it) and its integrality not extracting
small chunks of it, not applying 'divide et impera' to its parts, however respecting values and  understanding complexity and diversity. Trying desperately hard to create and maintain a holistic and holographic vision of LENR.

There are very serious problems with the zeroth principle of problem solving
in our field, cohorts of people driven by anything else as envy and hatred and actually not interested in solving the problem of LENR, the problem of new energy.
I still hope sincere and dedicated problem solvers will eventually prevail.

  1. Comment from Ecat World

    Yes, it works as claimed.
    Why do I say this?
    I've been following this for six years. I've met the principal characters, seen the earlier model reactors operate in Bologna and Ferrara, and have kept generally up to date on what's going on. I have a marked antipathy to voicing my opinions on line, so you're not going to see me re-appearing on these premises (much as I appreciate the work done on ECW) again. But, yes, to the best of my knowledge, the e-cat works.
