To believe or not to believe, that is the question. Having let myself get sucked into the murky world of LENR with its theater so crazy that my insomnia now bubbles over with visions of Rabbits and Oil Cabals, I struggle in daylight hours to find that balance between skepticism and cynicism, open mindedness and gullibility. The pathoskeps are, sadly, very right in their basic position. As far as I can tell, no smoking gun proof of the validity of LENR claims has come along. The cynical edge to their howling grates on the act of actually thinking is of no more value than a flagellant extolling the value of faith. The field is turning into the truest example of the scientific method at work, with a claim so IMMENSE that each and every one of us will need to do the experiment hands on before we allow real belief. And since there is no e-Cat store on my block and I am plumb out of nanometer nickel powder, I can only in those delirious predawn hours strain at grasping what the PlanetMind is doing, and what various interest groups are up to in this miraculous madhouse.
Take the military. Imagine this: You are a four-star general in the Pentagon. You have funded things like “Staring at Goats” and “remote viewing“. It is 1989 and Pons and Fleishmann have just announced the discovery of an energy source so incredible that it may require a new religion to adore fully enough. What would you do? As years went by, while the public crucifixion of P&F went along charmingly, various reports, many from groups under the Pentagon/National Security umbrella crept in of tritium generation, various radiations and anomalous heat. Credible, trained researchers are active in foreign (FOREIGN, for God’s sake!) countries which support these claims in a beguiling way, like some flirt with a button undone. You call in your MIT geek, think tank crazy, weapon pedaling crowd always hot for a brand new gizmo to take to the task and justify their bureaucratic existence. And what do you get from the think tank boys? Read the Bushnell slide show! Endless loiter capability, completely altered battlefield logistics; no more frozen foot soldiers; water, water everywhere! This discovery would alter the war-making abilities of the modern military more than anything, save nuclear weapons! Even there, although the direct use of LENR as a weapon has been discounted, who knows? Imagine the consequences of a scalable nuclear device. Imaging the consequences of a home heating unit that Make magazine juices into a thousand pounds of TNT bomb. Imagine the temptation to use nukes if it was possible to make them at any yield and in any size range and they didn’t poison the battlefield. A hand grenade that could completely destroy a tank or a bunker complex. A cave smasher “Bin Laden special” that could have creamed Tora Bora with no collateral damage.
The fact that the Military Industrial Complex has not rolled out LENR devices speaks to me…and says “either they are so AFRAID of the technology in general distribution that they are co-conspirators in PlanetMind’s efforts to suppress it, while actually having the technology developed, OR it doesn’t exist.” The same general train of thought, sadly, also applies to the Energy Men. While you are imagining, imagine that you stumble upon the “Secret Sauce” and get a visit from the Men in Black…as perhaps Andrea Rossi, Brain Ahern and George Miley already have.
