Our dilemma is that we hate change and love it at the same time; what we really want is for things to remain the same but get better. (Sydney J. Harris)
I hope you have introduced the word/concept malsolution about which I wrote vwery recently in your inner dictionary -see:
so you can easily understand that today's great Greek dilemma is that of the choice is between two malsolutions- slower or faster, chronic or acute austerity. I have learned to hate this word that rhymes so well with pauperity (poverty)- we here in Romania also had a terrible era of austerity when Ceausescu wanted to pay the external debts very fast at any price. My solidarity with the Greek people is total.
I cannot help, I see that the modern capitalist system is so ffragile and the Crisis is always at a small distance.
We owe so much to the Greek civilization and culture- perhaps introducing a worldwide tax of paying one euro-cent every time when a word of Greek origin is spoken or written could be a noble and useful action. Dilemma is the immediate example- clear Greek etymology.
Being punished for other people's sins, collective sins are the portals for genocide, factual or economic. I am worried because Europe' probletence starts to have cosmic dimensions. Some parts of the Earth are seen as kind of Heaven (Western Europe is an example) other parts, many, are as Hell. Now masses of unhappy people instead of trying to improve the local conditions by hard work- are moving to the Heaven countries obviously making them step by step more and more unhappy. I told that the capitalist system is very vulnerable. The times are too interesting! And dangerous, deadly dangerous. I fear for the young generations.
But this is a LENR focused blog, so I ask you:
What is the dilemma of LENR?
My personal opinion- just for the case you happen to be interested, LENR's dilemma is an improved variant of Woody Allen's message to the graduates:
"Mankind is facing a crossroad - one road leads to despair and utter hopelessness and the other to total extinction - I sincerely hope you graduates choose the right road”
The crossroad or dilemma of LENR is:
-building the future on known, verified, theoretically founded, sure- however technologically irrelevant data, or
- trying to build the future on partially still unknown but discoverable technological principles with huge inter-disciplinar efforts and applying new methods and recipes.
Guess which one is the way of total, but relatively slow extinction and whaich one has some chances.
1) 1MW plant and Hot Cat continue stable and self-sustaining - says Rossi

It’s 3.48 p.m. of Saturday July 4th ( Independence Day for the USA). The 1 mW plant is stable, in ssm, the Hot Cat is stable and in ssm too. In this moment we have not particular problems, just stay alert.
Warm Regards, from inside the computers container,

SSM means “self sustained mode”. Precise data will be given in due time.
Today I have been all the day inside the plant, therefore no BBQ, but I think that the field of our work resonates with the field of the work that brought the USA to get their Independence. Thank you for your invitation for the next year: I adore BBQ. The one I remember with most affection is the BBQ on July 4th 1998 in the house of my friend Craig Cassarino, now vice-president of LTI, discussing about my LENR experiments, that in those times were made very secretly. Craig is a BBQ Master, and used to spray on the beef a sauce of his invention, whose secret was more coveted than is now the IP of the E-Cat.
Thank you, dear Peter Metz, also for giving me the chance to wish a wonderful July 4th to all our Readers that leave in the USA!

3) Cold fusion: A solution for radioactive waste?
4) Undeniable a very good presentation, not very new but aired today
Dick Korf and Gerard Essing - Is commercial LENR the real deal ?
5) It is my pleasure to let you know that I have received papers and a message from Leonid Urutskoev who has the kindness to help me (us) to understand the sudden appearances of hydrogen in different experiments. Will try to inform you more tomorrow.
The Greek dilema can be seen in the fact that the average Bulgaria pension is 1/8th that of the average Greek pension since Greece joined the EU. The population, culture, and economy are rather similar though Greece has more beach resorts. The same is true throughout the Balkins where Greece somehow managed to see the EU subsidize so that it became 8 times richer.ReplyDelete
