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!

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.

Image result for danger quotationsImage result for danger quotations


VUCAplosion - is now a dangerous moment in the LENR history?

Acronyms are part of any professional jargon, but not everybody likes them
and not everybody is a professional. Now I will use two- 
SWOT- Strengths-Weaknesses- Opportunities- Threats and
VUCA- Volatlity- Uncertainties-Complexity-Ambiguity\,_uncertainty,_complexity_and_ambiguity

Based on my experience Vulnerability goes better for "V" than voltatility

OK, actually we are doing all the time SWOT analysis - even if implicitly not explicitly
for LENR- and only very rarely we are happy with it; I think you agree?
Recently we could state the arrival or enhancement of more threats for our field and we can state that now it is a dangerous moment in the LENR history. The field has survived with difficulty in hostile conditions and the danger is that the conditions' hostile character will be enhanced. 
 Some signs: eventually there is progress possibly real in Hot Fusion; the most recent ICCF was actually breakthroughless, hydrino energy- our competitor is showing more and more interesting things- it is soon indistinguishable from a technology, it seems. To not forget fossil energy- the richest ever oil-natural gas field was discovered these days in the US, oil is still cheap.
It is said the most generous funder of LENR is Industrial Heat but this company is focused on a very expensive legal battle with the inventor of LENR+, Andrea Rossi 
and therefore IH has to ponder even relatively not costly decisions as the organizing of the next ICCF- not a positive message for its supporters. 
Many members of the LENR community tend to negate the very existence of the 
Rossi technology, but then what are the chances to create a real technology? Say in the next 5-10 years?
A paper claiming CF/LENR died 25 years ago was published in he important journal Chemical and Engineering News- no high rank member of the LENR community has reacted. Then the W-L theory promoting heretic Steven Krivit has entered the battle and C&EN has accepted that old fusion is something but not fusion. 
Actaull Krivit has published a provocative- anti LENR orthodoxy book, "Hacking the Atom" 
An today, surprisingly or not so...we got information about an other Krivit book - its presentation by Lewis Larsen at 1) below.
Do you like it or not, do you think W-L theory is flawed and impossible from the start
the truth is that this 1) is a very provocative publication- it's a VUCAplosion or VUCAbomb that hows how vulnerable/volatile, uncertain, full of complexities and ambiguities our LENR is. As long as it politically/scientifically correct to sayLENR is just a fantasy (my one, e.g.)
Do not forget that Krivit can be as he is but only his LENR  site is cited in Google news.
Do not ignore that Krivit claims that our reputed colleague from China, Xing Zhong Li is now a believer in the W-L theory.
Will the blasphemious "Fusion Fiasco" remain ignored and unanswered?
For LENR it is really time of danger.

I have tried to opt for a wiser "heretics management:" long time ago, see please:

but both the "good" people and the heretics have ignored this. Larsen has attacked EGO OUT twice for absolutely non-relevant issues.

I can predict very exactly what will happen now: nothing.

Trying not to Lose is Different than Trying to Win

The philosophy of knowledge:

Never try to raise above Nature because you are Her son.

Study Nature by ALL possible means.

Feel what She likes and work with Her, not above/against Her.

Then Nature will fully reward you.

(The are the philosophical conclusions of the Chizhov-Zaitsev paper about the Rossi generator,  paper No 3) 


The Chizhov-Zaitsev paper was presented yesterday at he Russian Globular Lightning Seminar. When I have seen it, I had a revelation- and it was kind of love at first sight. We needed such a a paper- it is very professional as research approach. I still have not understood all its details and have not agreed to everything it says or evaluates or predicts but not this is relevant. It is the mode of thinking.
What is a certainty for me- for LENR more than for any other less difficult, less complex and not so strange scientific fields methodology is the key- how the authors think  not what they think.
And the authors are doing what I have called creations of more actionable parameters, not testing systematically the natural parameters in a simple setup.
I have decided to translate the paper and to discuss it with you.

If we look at the world in terms of energy, there is complete anarchy. To date, this is still true. The people who had the crucial time of decision in this regard, will not undergo the worst effects.

For land ownership, water rights, human labor, livestock, aviation, safety and even something virtual like money, copyright, contract law, religion, language … comprehensive fiscal and legal structures were established, nationally and internationally, but almost nothing about energy and very little on raw material consumption.

Mankind has just implemented exhaustible energy sources and consumed them as acquired, often at the cost to develop them. The residues are dumped on equally anarchic way into the ground, sea and air. And now it appears that this mistake will ruin humanity and beautiful parts of this planet.

It seems an anomaly in the history of the wisdom of man. How could we do this?

I would like to contribute to mitigate the consequences. At the appropriate time. With proper preparation. With your technology. For the children.

a) Inspired by the Internet

Two must-write review papers - to finish both in this month:
- The LENR optimist's guide for 2017.
- The LENR pessimist's guide for 2017.
Perhaps the two texts can be identical!

A wise advice: "stop demonizing the other side!"

A painful rhetoric question:" Are we out of really great ideas?

There is a new collection of dots that the quantum spin liquid is bringing to the surface. The first is long distance entanglement. Even through the spins are random locally, then are coherent at long distances with other patches of random spins in the far field.

The spins become spinons, which are spins that exist separately from the electrons. These spinons generate factional spin. 

The spinons produce a new kind of magnetism, called spin liquid magnetism.

This spin liquid magnetism produces magnetic monopoles.

Finally, there is a theory that says that the vacuum is a quantum spin liquid. That is how the cosmos is connected together through entanglement and makes the vacuum a superconductor. This superconductivity of the vacuum produces mass in certain types of particles.

For an overview see

If Russ George can connect all these dots together, it would make for a fine article

Image result for troll quotationsImage result for troll quotations

The word TROLL - Internet troll is younger than me Before learning about the nasty trolls my immediate reaction-connection to the ord was this musical piece by Edvard Grieg:


 a) Russ George  teaches me to use a better word

Regarding the 4th column that attacks LENR, Russ advised me: 

like most basically good people you ignore the really dastardly. Your list of the kinds of people in your column leaves out the most dastardly those being the TROLLS... Trolls behave the way they do simply to garner any attention... there is no deeper reason behind them other than that they are pitiful twisted malcontents who hate their own lives and live only to poison other peoples lives... we all recognize who are the troll of lenr to be. Social media is Troll heaven. 

He is right- those a aggressive and noisy denialist-negationist-conspiration theorists are, at least functionally speaking- trolls.

b) A returning angry Anonymous dislikes what I wrote yesterday (too)
However he completely misunderstands me. He wrote

Just can't stop bashing Pons and Fleischmann, can you. YOU are doing more damage to LENR than your supposed "fifth column" of "classic cold fusionists" by creating a divide where none exists. THE factor inhibiting ALL cold fusion research is lack of funding, and has been ever since the hot fusion types tried and almost attempted to strangle CF in its cradle. Look at the efforts in your beloved "LENR+" (which doesn't exist....LENR is LENR). Badly funded efforts run in garages and living rooms, or bootlegged outside normal hours at professional labs. Wake up and smell the coffee!

It has been the efforts of those "classic LENR" types that have managed to keep the field alive AT ALL, and built up a solid background of sound research data sufficient to convince non-standard sources of funding to provide some small grants, but compared to funding for comparablly understood things (for instance "high temperature superconductivity") that is about as close to non-existent as it can get and still exist. 

Telling that somebody had no luck is not a negative opinion. The weakness of Pd D is in no way due to some error or lack of creativity of the Founders. On the contrary discovering LENR in very bad and hostile circumstances, in a place where it barely exists, is a supplementary proof of their genius. Lack of funding is only an aggravating factor- I have made bets here that even with billions of dollars funding, the essential problems of he cradle system will NOT be solved because they cannot be solved at all, THERE- (Djinn in the Bottle) I had the privilege to discuss with Martin Fleischmann himself (at ASTI-1997) what has happened at IMRA-FRANCE. It is obvious that the Founders were oppressed and attacked unjustly however with solid reliable experimental results they could win. And it was not a problem of lack of funding only. Today ENEA and SKINR are not poor and where is the awaited PdD breakthrough. 
We will see if LENR+ exist or not. I have predicted it.
I think researchers insisting to work with the PdD electrolytic system, wet, dirty, cool
who do not accept the high temperature, deep degassing and stimulation systems, not using technology in combination with Science are sine qua non conditions of a working productive system- have no future. It is also counterproductive to deny the possibilities of the transition metal-hydrogen systems a la Pianteli and a la Rossi . NiH is an industrial possibility but it is- in historical vision also a pilot or a technical guinea pig- better metals can be W or, why not , Fe. Watch the field for 30-50 years and you will see.

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 super- fluid 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.

Sveinn Olafsson, Science Institute, Physics department University of Iceland, 
L. Holmlid, University of Gothenburg, Sweden 

For over the last 25 years the science of cold fusion/LENR has been researched around the world with slow pace of progress. Modest quantity of excess heat and signatures of nuclear transmutation and helium production have been confirmed in experiments and theoretical work has resulted in a flora of possible theoretical scenarios. [1-2] Here we present energy production in several stages of surface processes that result first in the formation of Rydberg matter of Hydrogen [3] that can later condense in a new ultra-dense Hydrogen phase with 2.3 pm short bond distances. This phase is nuclear active showing break-even fusion reaction [7] under 100mW laser pulsing and slow spontaneous fusion occurring without laser pulsing[4,5,6]. The experimental work in around 30 publications is briefly reviewed and latest experimental results presented and discussed. In that work high-energy particles are detected from the spontaneous processes using scintillation and other similar detectors. Both spontaneous line-spectra and a spontaneous broad energy distribution similar to a betadecay distribution are observed indicating detection of particles such as muons. The broad distribution is concluded to be due to nuclear particles, giving straight-line Kurie-like plots. They are observed even at a distance of 3 m in air and have a total rate of 107 -1010 s-1. In the talk the link of these observation to Low energy nuclear reactions (LENR) or so called cold fusion will be discussed experimentally and theoretically.

In nanotechnology, control is key. Control over the arrangements and distances between nanoparticles can allow tailored interaction strengths so that properties can be harnessed in devices such as plasmonic sensors.
