When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls! (Ted Grant)
In a controversy, the instant we feel anger; we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves. (Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha)
I have many controversies with some of my LENR colleagues, however the Buddha has no reasons to worry for me. I succeeded to develop a positive habit, as higher is my repulsion toward the erroneous and even harmful ideas (in LENR only!) of somebody as stronger is my empathy toward the person, the poor fallible, falsely informed, intellectually limited, pathologically motivated, sinful person (they consider me so too and I have to agree some times).. In most cases the history of our science field will excuse them by oblivion. This positive attitude cannot be changed even by my opponents mental manipulation practices or deliberate misinterpretation of what I have told. I accept their rather childish trials to replace my thinking that want to be free and independent with their memefied mental maneuvers I well know that: “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)” This statement is very valid for the labyrinthic art of LENR thinking.
It is not entirely true that: Lord protect me from my friends, I can take care of my enemies (Voltaire) because my very best friends are the best friends of the genuine, productive LENR+ too.
Some changes can be seen these days in the evil infrastructure- the way to Hell is not more paved with good intentions. Crowded buses are circulating there one-way and good intentions are used as fuel.
In the following I will discuss about some of the many accusations against my LENR ideas.
I. BLACK and WHITE THINKING
This is the most common argument- due to my limited mental resources I am unable to comprehend the amazing richness of the existence (the LENR fragment of it), for me the situations are good or bad, LENR is a complete disaster, LENR + is a total triumph, Pd is good for nothing while Ni is the metal of future. For me gray or colored thinking is inaccessible, air poisoning is fatal for LENR in all the cases and independently of any circumstances. I ignore alternatives, I am blind to other possibilities, cannot use probabilities, will never imagine something marvelous as a reversal of effect. I am sure that, even the undeniable fact that I have invented-created scipiology, the art of directly converting disasters in triumphs (see please http://newenergytimes.com/v2/archives/fic/F/F199402.PDF and this blog) will not change a bit their certainty that I am thinking in black and/or white with a strong focus and preference for what black signifies. I cannot go beyond true or not true and I am a hopeless prisoner of my self-imposed limits. I don’t take these tragically however when my surrender to complexity is invoked by people who really exhibit this fatal flaw- I am amazed.
These things are not new, on the contrary. A few days ago when I have received a message of 6738 words from Abd systematically dissecting my LENR ideas I had a sudden illumination moment: I remembered in the clairvoyant mode that Abd has told me the same words almost, 101+ years ago! You would not believe at once this but please listen.
It is well known that in case your have difficulties in accepting your mortality- then you have only 3 practical solutions:
a) be deeply religious and eternal life comes as a primary reward for many religions (attention- sex is allowed only in few Paradises!);
b) follow exactly the teachings of the gerontologist Aubrey de Grey;
c) learn the practice of metempsychosis, with some efforts you will
be able to reincarnate in a person from the categories you like with an over 90% probability
Anyway Abd (then with the name Damian) and I (Harry) met in April 1912 on a great modern ship- due to my Alz in statu-nascendi I have forgotten its name, but it was about something very big, I am sure.
We both were very rich young boys, not very nice. He had more money but I was nastier (read about "Accidents in metempsychosis". Both passionate for the card game contract bridge, soon we formed a team. We won quite easily the Ship's Bridge Championship organized on April 14 afternoon and we were just celebrating our victory with a few bottles of Veuve Clicqout champagne. Going to the bathroom I overheard people from the staff speaking about possible icebergs on our way and how dangerous these can be. Damian -Abd was not impressed, he was a fanatical optimist laughed and has accused me of alarmism and even of cowardice:
“You have no idea how many good, perfect alternatives there are to our ship hitting a pesky iceberg! We have our way, the iceberg its own way the probability of collision is negligible. Haven't you read that this ship has the most modern navigation system in the world, haven't you learned that our Captain Edward Smith is an infallible expert?
And it is not about hitting an iceberg or not, please do not think in black or white- only in the sense that the hulls of the ship are made from black metal are so resistant that white ice- that is only ordinary lowly plain water cannot damage them seriously. The ship has many compartments and even if it happens that
1-2-3 are broken, the rest will keeps us
The bad chance of a catastrophe is a real minimum; I have traveled more than 100,000 miles with ships, not so good than this and never had serious problems. Always think about good alternatives.”
I have to reckon he was very convincing.
The following day however, Damian was already fully engaged in the next metempsychosis campaign, while I, taking care to become an excellent swimmer in all my consecutive lives, was traveling with Carpathia and I succeeded to happily survive till 1919 when I got the flue. .. et puis bonjour!
Unfortunately for Abd, existence, reality, life, science, research is full of simplistic Yes/No options and any situation, however relative has to be compared to what it was planned, desired, promised to be.
You can learn a lot from the card game we played on that unlucky ship: unfulfilled promises are punished with cruelty; doing a bit more than you have bid gets a modest reward- many times so is in life too. Words can be misused, phrases can be crippled or manipulated, however still there is no source of energy having its direct roots in the Fleischmann Pons Cell so I will continue to tell with sadness that LENR classic is in deep trouble.
If somebody can tell us about marvelous scientific facts, clearly understood and constantly demonstrable by more different methods- than I will immediately retract “in deep trouble”
And existence is full of Yes/No questions. You cannot avoid them.
Have you already forgotten Kirill Duhanov’s existential teachings: “What is, is! What isn’t, isn’t!”?
