Approaching the presentation on Dec. 7th at the Citi5 Flash Summit by Dr. Brian Ahern, I feel as though the rabbit hole is looming large as the Mad Hatter, babbling in Italian with a steaming tea kettle in hand, urges me one step beyond the matrix and into the lattice. Yet, his steam has water droplets clearly visible making a weak tea indeed, and, yes, the crazy Greeks ride a Cadillac of gold…or nickel. All served up with that Holy Grail “special sauce” we’ve come to love.
I will be reporting on this site (thanks, Ben) my impressions of the Citi5 presentation on Dec. 7th where Dr. Ahern will be presenting his discovery of a theoretical justification for the competing “scammers” halfway round the globe. I’ll be taking a farcical tone because not only are the consequences of a validation of all the LENR claims earth shaking, but the vessel (or vessels in this case) are so unlikely, so Fellini and Zorba the Greek and Nikolai Tesla all rolled into one. They may be very, very smart. After all, who isn’t fascinated by the drama, suspense and mystery of their claims and unorthodox presentations. They may be very crooked – I check my wallet after every visit to the many “ecat” sites. Ahh the joy of this scamming competition. The Bogus Bowl, complete with a haggard cheerleader chanting repetitive slogans and half-time entertainment provided by a cock-eyed, cartoon-ish Sailor Man. Yet these claims of limitless, free, green energy are derived from the work of a pack of respectable, sincere, genuine, 100% scientists! It is a truly bizarre and fascinating drama being played out, and in the end, free energy for all…or just a fart you can light off and call free.
In the end, I cannot think of how else to begin getting my mind around the “accidental conspiracy, and the strange men who saved the world” aspect of this. It is a stranger than any SciFi ever written reality show. Almost makes you believe in some divine force, saving us and having a damn good laugh at the same time!
You know the possible depth of the WAR Rossi describes is certainly not trivial. As a quick story to highlight this, a friend , a Ph.D. in science who worked for the government back in the time of Fleischmann and Pons, was involved with a think tank team contemplating the consequences of a genuine cold fusion revolution. At first they were cautiously optimistic, then concerned, and in the end quite afraid of the impact on our societal, economic and political systems. They, of course, didn’t DO anything, but what they realized in their analysis MUST have passed upstream, and who can really tell how far and what effect those concerns had. In the end, they were “relieved” when the P & F results were debunked, and they, the poor pioneers of LENR, were run out of the country, their reputations trashed, and their entire lives shattered. And now, today there is the constant barrage of pathoskeps, from former advocates of “Cold Fusion” to foreign car dealers, attacking in every conceivable manner while others repeatedly try to erase Wikipedia articles about the Patterson Cell in an attempted.whitewash of LENR history? I think so! The rabbit told me.
In New York, at the Dr. Brian Ahern presentation, I will be as much interested in the makeup of the audience, as I am in the technical content of his discovery. Men in Black? Main Stream Media? Investors? Peer Group Scientists? The Red Queen herself, or a bunch (like me) with funnel caps and dreams of a breakthrough freeing us from a gray and dismal future. A steal from Ben, the administer of this site, is a quote from Woody Allen that he passed onto me:
“Today we are at a crossroads. One road leads to hopelessness and despair; the other, to total extinction. Let us pray we choose wisely.”
