Sunday is an excellent day for an exercise in deep but free thinking, of looking to reality and its facts with superiority and detachment. To search for the great vision,
beyond obstacles, myths- and temporarily ignoring the primitive dichotomy possible/impossible. To look at the world of LENR not as it is but as it has to be according to our philosophy.
It has happened that a good friend has finished his message with:
Fleischmann always said that cold fusion would work better hotter.
Unfortunately I cannot more ask him: "Martin, that's fine, but as the temperature increases,
will it remain the same cold fusion, or will be different forms of it? You have discovered the first
kind of (allow me please to call it LENR not Cold Fusion)- we are just climbing very high on the scale of temperatures. For example, this new beast looking as fire awakening a a near to the melting temperature of nickel, a simple mixture of Ni powder and nasty lithium aluminum tetrahydride, a grams to Megawatts source- what has this in common with your discovery?
For LENR a world of diversity has been generated and what we need now is definition (what are these new species (and what are they NOT!) - or as Ed Storms suggests (true?) different forms of an unique process, and we also a taxonomy based on the relationships between these forms.
Definition is a sometimes harmful , rarely even mutilating logical manoeuvre, necessary but has to used with care. To commit the daily auto-referential sin- in a paper about Randy Mills stuff
published inn the very last issue of a American Chemical Society journal- I wrote: "S. J. Lec, the great Polish aphorism writer has remarked, “Definition and finis [death] have the same Latin root”. Richness of a concept is sacrificed for the sake of brevity. Obsolete definitions can hamper creativity and progress in a field of research, http://pubs.acs.org/subscribe/archive/ci/31/i10/html/10vp.html
In the growing world of the Ni-H (actuallyly transition metals hydrogen systems, (W will be the star in 2022!) we have wet systems (out) Piantelli's high scientific level process, Warm Cat of Rossi, Defkalion's "make hydrogen reactive and nickel receptive" process, Brillouin, Mizuno
CLEAN PLANET trying-to-be-born Ni deuterium process and at the peak- of the temperatures anyway this amazing ceramic Hot Kittens a la IH, Lugano and Parkhomov.
When will we know which systems are viable and able to grow up- it is a greater challenge then their classification.
To mention an other very positive effect of the Parkhomov experiment and a bold personal intiative please read this:

LENR news from Ukraine
In Ukraine both the scientists and the press take the new energy problem really seriously. The leading LENR specialist Vladimir Vysotskii had the kindness to
send us a preliminary information:
"I would like to inform you that in period Oct-Dec 2014 I had 3 long-term reports (presentations) in Ukrainian TV channels related Rossi and Lugano experiments (including one on the main evening news program on the NATIONAL CHANNAL on 9 Dec 2014).
I also have published two large publicistic articles on this subject in main Ukrainian weekly "Mirror of the Week" (ЗЕРКАЛО НЕДЕЛИ).
These articles are available at the addresses (in Russian)
The ugly duckling of the nuclear physics and the possible progress of the World's energetics
Will a wite swan grow up from the ugly duckling?
I plan also to present new results (on the self-similar physical mechanism of the suppression of the Coulomb barrier in the Hot Cat (Lugano and Parkhomov)experiments and about the new our experiments on efficient transmutation of isotopes in growing biological objects) at ICCF19 conference.
China is also moving - in, for LENR
From Gregory Goble:
Chinese Advanced LENR Technology Patent and Theory:
Eventually, I want to share with you two comments
a) AXIL's comment tries to explain RF from the paper presented here- but discussed only with close friends:
It is an Life and Death paper for wet PdD
There is good reason to believe that magnetism is the prime mover in LENR. Under this speculative paradigm, it is interesting to consider the options and consequences of this conjecture. In such a paradigm, any technology that is friendly to magnetism would be good for LENR, and conversely, a technology that undercuts the strength of magnetism is bad.
The posit that ultimate LENR causation is rooted in magnetism is supported by the emission of RF as a reaction byproduct just as heat is a byproduct.If LENR theorist would attempt to understand how RF emissions fit into the LENR paradigm, a new world of understanding would unfold before such a effort.
b) A very interesting idea, in consonance with the Russian group which studies CF and Ball Lightning together
I bet the NAE is a magnetic trap for a micro lightning ball (mlb) which is a very magnetic and electrically charged object.
Because it is charged the mlb tries to recover neutrality by approaching the metal surface. If it succeeds to actually reach the metal it will recover neutrality (catch free electrons around) and disappear ("evaporate") in a very short time. But the mlb has also a huge magnetic moment so it could in principle be trapped in a ferromagnetic material inside a zone with an appropriate magnetic field configuration : this is probably what happens in Ni cracks (NAE) : in an crack a mbl is trapped at a certain distance from the frontier of the crack and in this way can remain neutral and alive for a long time .... until the temperature rises above the Curie point of the Ni in which case the magnetic trap cannot be effective anymore (or may be much less: remember that a mbl is extremely magnetic because it is a collection of charged particles spinning at extremely high kinetic momentum). Thanks to this and thanks to the thermal oscillations of the Ni network around it , the NAE is able to get closer and closer to the metal trap border and produce "cold fusion effects"
I hope the next week will be excellent for LENR.
