Image result for kaleidoscope quotationsImage result for kaleidoscope quotations

Creativity is a lot like looking at the world through a kaleidoscope. You look at a set of elements, the same ones everyone else sees, but then reassemble those floating bits and pieces into an enticing new possibility.  (Rosabeth Moss Kanter)
The kaleidoscope has been shaken. The pieces are in flux. Soon they will settle again. Before they do, let us re-order this world around us. (Tony Blair)

Sciences usually advances by a succession of small steps, through a fog in which even the most keen-sighted explorer can seldom see more than a few paces ahead. Occasionally the fog lifts, an eminence is gained, and a wider stretch of territory can be surveyed—sometimes with startling results. A whole science may then seem to undergo a kaleidoscopic rearrangement, fragments of knowledge sometimes being found to fit together in a hitherto unsuspected manner. Sometimes the shock of readjustment may spread to other sciences; sometimes it may divert the whole current of human thought. (Sir James Jeans)


 Kaleidoscopic thinking about LENR will be better than mono color.

After an early schism in LENR thinking- a deep cognitive chasm separates those who know that LENR takes places at the surface of Pd and those who are certain that the Lattice is the place where fusion can happen- add to these opposed scenarios the presence or absence of active sites also called N.A.E. This scientific conflict seems non-solvable. Parties represented by Ed Storms and Mitchell Swartz- promoting the theories of Peter Hagelstein.

These days an other conflict between the more or less orthodox D-D Fusion snd the heterodoxia of the Widom-Larsen theory entered in an active phase- the title of Steven Krivit's book; "Fusion Fiasco" sounds like a  declaration of war.

In 2012 I coined the term LENR+ for enhanced excess heat LENR - at high temperature due to the surface dynamism of the metal (nickel)- this concept is rejected by the great majority of my LENR colleagues. Actually the central issue in the Rossi vs, Darden trial is if LENR+ exists and has worked in the 1 year, 1-MW Test- or not. 
These are seen as dualistic Yes/No conflicts but I wonder if they are really so.

First, in LENR we are (I think so) in an incipient stage of discovery and knowledge
Second Truth is broken  (see please the religious metaphor in:
and we have in LENR a large collection of fragile truths- as many pieces of broken colored glass. This has suggested me the idea that LENR is, metaphorically a kaleidoscope - the components of its beauty being Otherness, Complexity, Diversity, Dynamicity, Metamorphosis and Creativity- the 6 Pilars of LENR+.
In such a vision isn't possible to combine the surface and the lattice concepts , couldn't we find somewhere some seeds of truth in the W-L theory, wouldn't it be easier to accept the productive form of LENR? Let's try to think more kaleidoscopically!

Physicists Say New Technology is Step Forward for Clean, Infinite Fusion Power

"Attempts to create fusion reactions at room temperature, so-called "cold fusion," is seen by most of the scientific community as pseudo-science." Brrrr...

Clarifying the behaviors of negative hydrogen ions
First measurement of the flow reversal of negative ions
Date:December 9, 2016
Source:National Institutes of Natural Sciences
Scientists has succeeded in revealing the flow of negative hydrogen ions using a combination of infrared lasers and electrostatic probes in the ion-source plasma, which generates a negative-hydrogen-ion beam. This is the first time in the field of fusion research that the detailed ion flow, which changes direction and moves toward the beam direction in the ion source, has been demonstrated experimentally.


  1. Peter - though the W+L hypothesis sounds seductively simple, there are good reasons why it cannot be the correct explanation. Firstly, that the gammas are produced first and then absorbed by the layer of surface polaritons doesn't wash since there's logically just as much probability of the gamma being emitted in the opposite direction. Larsen patented a gamma absorber based on LENR, but despite the very high value of such a device to the military it hasn't been demonstrated. It would be very easy to test and to prove that it works, if it does. The second problem is that an ULM neutron would drop into the first nucleus it met, thus the reaction wouldn't just change Nickel to Copper and then stop, but we'd see neutron-heavy isotopes of all elements used and a lot of those would decay, giving characteristic radiation. Basically, we don't see the byproducts that the theory would predict.

    Peter Hagelstein seems to have published several ideas as well as retractions when he's investigated further. This shows he's not stuck in a rut, and so I think there's a pretty good chance that he'll come up with a valid and acceptable answer to the question of what's actually happening and why. Strangely, that flexibility of Hagelstein is seen as a failing by some. If the predictions aren't borne out by experiment, then the hypothesis is wrong and needs modification, and it's not a good idea to stick to it because it's simple and understandable.

    For LENR, I prefer the analogy of a jigsaw puzzle, where the pieces may not be all there and in any case they are scattered around. The Thermacore meltdown tells us that Ni/H is valid, and the P+F meltdown does the same for Pd/D with the backup of Miles' heat/Helium correlation. Piantelli put his Nickel in a cloud-chamber and saw radioactivity - something people tend to ignore since it's against the "no radiation" story.

    Given the jigsaw pieces we have from the history so far, can we fit them together to get a consistent picture? Such a picture would predict that if we do this we'll measure that. We then test the predictions, and if they don't match then the explanation isn't right yet. It's how science is done.


  3. I consider both schism and deep cognitive chasm to be a result of LENR being a wide bandset of phenomena. Also a result of how system complexity troubles understanding and development of a clear working theoretical model.

    Fascinating puzzle, as Simon says, both Pd and Ni meltdowns. LENR is all the puzzle pieces; I know coherence lies within that pile. Theories flourish, as they should.

    I like to creatively think of a few 'golden threads'… gas is within the wet cell bubbles… nano particles are within the cracks… excitation… fractal harmonics… superfluidity… dampening frequencies… control...

    Kaleidoscopic reading helps… thanks Peter

    "Novel Role of Superfluidity in Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions"
    Magierski, Piotr 2016-01-01

    We demonstrate, within symmetry unrestricted time dependent density functional theory, the existence of new effects in low-energy nuclear reactions which originate from superfluidity. The dynamics of the pairing field induces solitonic excitations in the colliding nuclear systems, leading to qualitative changes in the reaction dynamics. The solitonic excitation prevents collective energy dissipation and effectively suppresses capture cross section. We demonstrate how the variations of the total kinetic energy of the fragments can be traced back to the energy stored in the superfluid junction of colliding nuclei. Both contact time and scattering angle in non-central collisions are significantly affected. The modification of the capture cross section and possibilities for its experimental detection are discussed.

    1. From Lenr Forum blog

      Thanks to Peter Gluck for linking this article, the paragraphs below are a Google-ish translate of part of it.

      When talk about the transformation of one atom to another - is, of course, Alchemy, - says Alla Kornilov, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Director of the Innovation Centre of the Physics Department of Moscow State University - but we are engaged in the transformation of one nucleus to another. Perhaps it alfizika. And we have learned to do it.

      According to Alla Kornilova, she is able to transform one species to another. Well, for example, radioactive - in a non-radioactive, that is, thus solving the problem of nuclear waste. And still it can get very rare isotopes (1 gram worth hundreds of thousands of dollars), which are critical to medicine, nuclear energy, space instrumentation. Their industrial production - a resource for the country's prosperity.

      More recently, in June, the scientific seminar at the Institute of General Physics. AM Prokhorov, Russian Academy of Sciences. There were scientists from other institutions, academics, representatives of the Industry and Trade Ministry and Rosatom. Vladimir Kashcheev, director of the Science and Technology Branch of the handling of spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste of high-tech Research Institute of Inorganic Materials. Academician AA Bóchvara (this is one of the main institutions of the State Corporation for Atomic "Rosatom" energy), said that their examination has confirmed the effectiveness of Kornilova technology for decontamination of liquid nuclear waste.

      Physico-chemical community become agitated, she held a seminar at the Physics Institute. PN Lebedev. After meeting at the Biological Faculty of Moscow State University and Academician Mikhail Kirpichnikova, dean of the Faculty of Biology, Moscow State University, Head of the Department of Bioengineering Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry. academicians MM Shemyakin-Ovchinnikov Ovchinnikov.Outcome: biologists announced that they plan to work with Kornilov and repeat her experiments. Then Alla Alexandrovna Kornilov was invited to a reception to the Deputy Director General of "Rosatom" Vyacheslav Pershukova ...

      Indeed, such seminars have taken place. One was held June 6, 2016 at the Institute of General Physics named after AM Prokhorov, and the second, in the walls of the PN Lebedev Physical Institute Lebedev, was held on 17 June. The first reports were read, "The nonlinear quenching of radioactivity 137 of Cs" and "Deactivation of nuclides in growing biological systems", the second - "nonlinear quenching of the radioactivity of cesium-137 in biological systems and laser ablation in liquids." All this looks like a natural community to recognize the miracles, but, as always happens in such cases, there is a catch, which negates the results. Statements from the quotation above about Alla Kornilova meetings with people from the Moscow State University named after MV Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russian Academy of Sciences and deputy fails to confirm the general director of "Rosatom", they remain on the conscience of the authors of the material "Philosophical powder ." Reading material on:

      What it makes Kornilov, called cold nuclear fusion at low energies. In other words, we are talking about the nuclear reactions that take place at room temperature. In the early 1990s, government programs that funded research in this area around the world, were discontinued after a few failed sensations. In the scientific community developed an allergy to any statements of the cold nuclear fusion experiments.
