Small slow progress is additive. great, fast progress is also subtractive and ...lateral (in the DeBono sense).More otherness than sameness, more change than continuity. At ICCF-19 we met both forms of progress, intertwined in a complex combination.
A complete, objective evaluation is now impossible, but the trends will be revealed.
Anyway, it is one more day.. many things, mainly good, can happen. 


Society and New LENR Technologies

Quantum Tunneling in Breather "Nano-colliders"

The Atom's Temperature

Fundamental of rate Theory for CMNS

For me the most applauded is the LENRG paper, however my most intense sympathy goes to Akito Takahashi, a wonderful friend.


A really excellent interview- showing motivational roots:

ICCF-19 Conversations and Impressions (Mats Lewan) [Updated]

I have asked for permission to reproduce here the

Report from Padua by David French

The Thursday night banquet was great - in one of the most ornately beautiful restaurants in the world. People were very happy and sociable.

Jean Paul Biberian was given two awards. He was also selling English translations of his 2012 book. I bought a copy for sure, and probably many others.

A substantial number of people lingered after dinner well beyond midnight.

Mike McKubre announced that ICCF-20 will be held next year in Sendai, Japan.

There is a lot that is good about ICCF events, but there are always certain problems. Many presenters are not competent as public speakers. Some have serious accents or even stumble in English. Many do not remember to use the microphone. One speaker was so much under stress that he could not compose himself to answer questions. That is understandable and the audience was sympathetic.

Sometimes graphs lacked dimensions for the co-ordinates. In one case a presenter' graphs had no descriptors on the co-ordinates at all! And the dubious quality of the slides as communication tools, in terms of being both edifying and clearly presented, is to say the least, notorious.

Well over half of the presenters paid no attention to the principles for good slide presentation. It is on the Internet: bullet points, large enough type to be readable, limited number of words per slide eg 20 - 50 (exceptions allowed, but please, exceptions), an oral story line that speaks to listeners rather than to readers. Especially please, no reading from the slides.

And so many of the presentations are about pet projects. It was rare for a presentation to address a relevant advance in the field as well as being both edifying and clearly presented.

And then there were presentations that were clear, interesting and edifying: David Nagel, Olga Dimitriyeva amongst others. David Kidwell and Mike McKubre always make good points as well as presenting clearly. And Melvin Miles spoke well and substantively, although he did not follow the list of key points he said he had rehearsed previously. Mel's presentation was nevertheless in the class of the best. He did not try to read his overly complex slides!

And now for some sunshine.

A highlight at ICCF-19 was the presence of Dr Parkhomov. At the end of the presentations on Thursday we were invited to attend at Dr Parkhomov's poster. This was apparently his preference over the alternative of being on the podium. At the poster his teenage daughter stood by his side.

Some 200 - 300 people circled in a great crowd, straining to hear his answers to questions being asked. At first Olga translated and then the granddaughter. It was a very special moment. Dr Parkhomov is small and unassuming, but his contribution is enormous. Those moments were the highlight of ICCF-19.

I will want to go to Sendai for the social opportunity to see so many good people again, but.....

To be addressed at a later date.
David French

Thank you, David!

  1. Annoying to have my comment disappear after signing in.

    Thank you Peter for posting the news on ICCF-19. I was particularly interested in the interview with Tom Darden that you linked. I think Rossi was lucky to have teamed up with him and Darden will be a leading figure in the development of LENR.

    I disagree with Darden that the main use of the E-Cat will be centralized power. Most of the energy used in a home is house heating,cooling and hot water - which need heat more than electricity.

    It looks like it is easier to scale down the E-Cat than scale it up or Rossi would not have used ~100 reactors for his 1 MW plant.
    I hope it will not be too long before trains, ships and trucks are powered by E-Cats. Cars will take longer.
    It is not difficult to visualize Hot Cats being used for a gas turbine in aircraft either.

  2. Dear peter,
    I start to make reports
    I've been impressed V Duninko proposal

    It is far from a finished theory, but it open doors, classical doors, and I love classical doors.
