The advent of LENR+ has caused a cognitive earth-quake in the world of LENR. This reaction may seem slow for the witness but history, which has learned many strange things from itself, will judge it probably as normal. It depends on who will write this history.
This week for example, Ed Storms who wrote the best LENR reviews ever, has presented an up-to-date variant of his own theory and has emphasized the holistic nature of the process:
“All parts of the model must work together as a logical whole. Each part is essential for the process to be consistent with what is observed.”
Here comes a great question: how many parts? We are steadily learning that there are more parts we have imagined. In 1991, I was thinking about 3 features topology, nature, mechanism of Cold Fusion, however admitting recognizing that each of these are actually not simple at all and have to be sub-divided in space and in time. I was taught lessons of complexity by Piantelli, Defkalion and recently by our colleague Axil who knows a lot about domains of physics and nanosciences that I am not able to grasp, to evaluate, to think professionally about, to work with, Anyway, the hard study of Axil’s writing and comments on my blog have helped me to understand that LENR is NOT like a song with say, melody, lyrics, rhythm. Take my all favorite song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5c3_o_Rqwrg
or so many other wonderful songs from all the corners of this small planet, I confess I have tried to make a list but I could not stop so I had to apply the cut-the-Gordian-Knot method but at least I have enjoyed a portion of good music.
LENR+ (the kind that works) is more “longer” and complicated than a song, and it has action, therefore it is as complex as an opera- see please: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opera or my own classical writing which I have not named “Opera Music, mon amour” from forgotten reasons: http://egooutpeters.blogspot.ro/2011/03/explaining-opera-music-of-all-noises.html
Actually how many LENR operas exist? Some of our colleagues believe it is de facto only one basic opera with the same libretto and the same music only the cast (names) is changed.
Simplifications are known in the world of opera see e.g. this definition: Opera is when... 'a tenor and soprano want to make love, but are prevented from doing so by a baritone.' Even over-simplifications have been tried as opera plots in One Sentence: http://www.brightcecilia.com/features/opera-plots-in-one-sentence.html
But these do not work and in the mirroring metaphor LENR+ is much more than the love story of Hydrogen and Nickel with no baritone interfering. It is a basso, Rydberg helping and lots of other roles decisive, secondary, positive, negative moving around singing
their mode. A good conductor, a creative opera director, first class
orchestra- all have to help the talented singers. It is useless to try to deepen this analogy. We will listen to some very good LENR operas soon. One of them is about a hero named Plexciton and the action (wild!) takes place in a country named Nanoplasmonics, we will see resonances, amplifiers other interesting things.
Not more simple songs as “Break through the Barrier” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsgFl-x0ZZo this could be just an aria in the grand opera.
It is possible the last act of the opera will be about something weird
as zero-point energy, space-squeezing or vacuum mining. This morning I have received very interesting news from LENR’s cousin
who has written an opera entitled “Extreme Cavitation”
I think it will be very useful to discuss with this cousin about operas, his libretti are different, his music is perhaps too noisy, but he has ideas. Some reasons to seriously discuss with Nanospire- see below.
