Video of a Table Top Demonstration of Ultrasound Applied to Mercury to Achieve Apparent Transmutation

I was made aware today about  a video of a demonstration by Prof. Fabio Cardone of the Italian National Research Council that seems to have been produced for an Italian financial media website. The video is in its original Italian version and has four other versions subtitled in Italian, English, French and Spanish.
The four versions of the video can be seen at this link on the New Nuclear Science website:
It is a table top demonstration of the treatment of mercury in a specially designed container to which mechanical vibrations are applied in oscillation to transform a small percent of it into other elements, that at some point towards the end of the video is said by Prof. Cardone to be done with off-the-shelf or easy to source parts.

Prof. Cardone states at the end of the demonstration:

“The conclusion to be drawn is we applied mechanical energy into a liquid, the liquid temperature rose less than the amount of mechanical energy we applied. It produced a substance that is not the fluid of the beginning. As chemists recognized it sticks to walls while mercury is noted for not sticking to walls. We lack a part of energy and there is a lack of heat. We assert that this heat has been used for this transmutation, and that there is no ionizing radiation either before or during or after. We can only conclude that it’s a new kind of transmutation because it contradicts the known laws of physics: when I apply energy to a fluid I expect at least to see it evaporate, not to produce a solid substance. And this concludes the demonstration, it is a new kind of reaction.”

Rossi’s E-Cat and Emergent Properties of Irreducible Wholes (Roland van Nus)

The following post has been submitted by Roland van Nus.

Rossi’s Ecat and Emergent Properties of Irreducible Wholes

There is an interesting concept that has arisen within the context of fractals, chaos dynamics, high temperature plasmas, Bose-Einstein condensates, holography, entanglement, consciousness research, and a broader framework proposed by David Bohm that attempts to encompass these and similar phenomena within the purview of an empirical inquiry into the nature of irreducibly whole systems.
I suspect this concept is becoming increasingly germane to the work Rossi is engaged in in that he cites the need to understand the Aharonov-Bose effect in order to understand what is occurring in the SK series.

The umbrella concept concerns emergence, and that all the emergent properties of a particular whole are only realized as the conditions necessary for their emergent evolution are achieved.

What is now known as the Mandelbrot equation is almost a hundred years old and has engaged mathematicians over the ensuing generations; it is a quadratic function that is employed iteratively in that the output of a specific calculation becomes the input value for the subsequent operation. When the initial value of <2 is fed into the equation all the products of this process fall below certain values that are expressed as positive and negative real and imaginary numbers; this iterative process was widely assumed to generate random numbers within a narrow range.

The Mandelbrot set, as distinct from the equation, remained hidden from view until the computer age when it became feasible to run millions and then billions and trillions of iterations of the equation and present this data in graphic form; at that juncture an intriguing hidden order emerged. The graphic representations at these high information densities revealed that the set is, as a whole, infinitely recursive, that intricate ‘structures’ are thematic across vastly different scales no matter how deeply you delve and that though the emergent image appears to be finite in space the length of the fractal boundary of the set is, essentially, infinite.

You can start with any value that falls within the set, as the initial input number, and reconstruct the set; the information that defines the set is distributed throughout the set, which is a phenomena common to whole entities.

An exposed holographic plate is directly perceived as an inchoate nonrepresentational maze of swirls and moire patterns, however when you shine a LASER through the plate an embedded 3D image emerges in space, for example a vase, that can be directly perceived as a complete 3D representation of the original from any angle excepting those interrupting the beam path.

When you shine a LASER through a tiny part of the plate the complete vase emerges in lower resolution. No matter which part of the plate is illuminated, and you can actually smash the plate to pieces, the complete vase will emerge from each piece, or location, when the necessary condition is met. The embedded information is distributed throughout the plate, as it is in our brains according to contemporary research.

Exposure to holography inspired an epiphany, to which we’ll return, in David Bohm as the implications of embedded nonrepresentational nonlocal information who’s hidden order could emerge under the right conditions sunk in.

Chaos dynamics postulates that dissipative structures will spontaneously reorganize as a whole when more energy is introduced to the structure, but that the threshold level and the emergent properties cannot be predicted prior to the threshold being crossed and the event of emergence transpiring. The SAFIRE project demonstrates this principle in the series of images of the plasma as it spontaneously reorganizes at progressively higher energies.

Bose-Einstein condensates were proposed decades before the conditions to produce them existed but no one postulated that one of the emergent properties is their ability to slow light down as low as a few meters per second, or that the emergent condensate would express as a single irreducibly whole.
The simplicity of condensates clearly delineates what is meant by an irreducible whole. On one side of the threshold condition there are a finite number of individual atoms each of which have properties well defined within our understanding of the periodic table and quantum mechanics, on the other side of the threshold these atoms have become a singular irreducible whole with completely different properties and this singular entity can not be defined by, or reduced to, the properties of its constituent atoms; the emergent whole can only be understood in its entirety and on its own terms of reference.

Einstein dismissed the possible existence of the phenomena of entanglement as improbable ‘spooky action at a distance’; it turned out that he was incorrect when it finally became possible to perform a validating experiment decades latter. This validation presented a fresh conundrum when the emergent properties of entanglement became apparent; unlike any other known phenomena entanglement acts instantaneously, violating the principle that the propagation of information and energy in this continuum can not exceed the speed of light, without regard for the distance between the linked quanta.
Equally disturbing to the status quo is that no existing instrumentation can detect the modality of the information and energy transfer inherent to entanglement, nor can it be blocked from occurring by any currently known methods.

Quantum particles are scaled at one three billionth of the atomic scale; within the atomic scale there is no requirement to evoke ’virtual’ atoms to explain atom interactions, at the quantum scale none of the interactions between particles can proceed without reference to ‘virtual’ particles that mediate the events between particles. Quantum mechanics as theory doesn’t work without the concept of ‘virtual’ particles to bridge a gap about which we have no information as to process.

The conundrum this presents is of a piece with the issues raised by entanglement; while it is evident in the data that a process has occurred, and must be accounted for in a comprehensive explanation of the witnessed phenomena, there is no evidence, to date, that these processes are occurring in the continuum we know through contemporary science.

We have discovered, through recent experiments, that gravity propagates at finite speeds through this continuum even if we can’t identify the mechanism involved and, inferentially from sparse data of the expression of Higgs bosons at CERN, that a ubiquitous invisible Higgs field probably does imbue fermions with the property of mass, by mechanisms unknown and currently undetectable, that gravity is postulated to act upon.

This catalog of known unknowns is of a piece with the subject of the Aharonov-Bose paper that Rossi informs us is critical to understanding the conditions leading to the emergence of energies of unknown origin in the SK that lies at the heart of his current work. That paper stems from the experimental observation that a line of magnetic force effects the behavior of electrons that are located outside the boundary of the magnetic field generated by the line of magnetic force, again by mechanisms unknown and currently undetectable; in short yet more non-local ‘spooky action at a distance’.

Bohm’s first notable work also ties directly to the evolution of the QX and SK series Ecats in that its subject was his observation, while a graduate student under Oppenheimer at SRI, that the electrons forming the plasma in an operating vacuum tube behave as a single whole entity rather than as disparate individual fundamental quantum particles. The resulting paper attracted the attention of Einstein whom Bohm worked with at Princeton for a number of years.

The epiphany Bohm experienced, while contemplating holography, was paradigmatic in the profound sense that the Copernican revolution didn’t change the accumulated body of observations of the cosmos, it reinterpreted them in a way that completely changed shared reality by reframing these observations in a way that had greater explanatory power.

The earth had been assumed to be stationary while the visible cosmos circled around it in periodic fashion, Copernicus demonstrated that the earth revolves around the sun, as do the other planets. This reframing of the data resolved a number of anomalies that had plagued astronomy up to that juncture, and it was the critical first step towards an empirical understanding of cosmology.

Bohm’s recognition that electron plasmas had to be understood as an emergent indivisible whole with unique properties that could not be reduced to the relationship of its constituent parts is foundational to the body of his life’s work. The step that really upset everyone was a reframing of the extant data about the nature of the whole of reality, and he used the metaphor of holography, the source of his inspiration, to illustrate this new point of view.

It is useful to embrace Bohm’s terminology as he is deeply thoughtful about the nuances of language and we’ll translate between the elements of holography and his descriptors for his paradigm. In his terminology the implicate order would be the embedded information on the plate out of which the explicate order emerges, our image of the vase, at the prompting of the super-implicate order, the laser in his metaphor, and meta super-implicate orders that engage the laser.

In this scheme of things we consciously exist in an explicate order, the known universe, that emerges from a foundational implicate order. The explicate and implicate orders are aspects of a whole that is interpenetrated, i.e. distributed, at every scaling and the emergence of the explicate order is a continuous ongoing process that he calls the holomovement.

Hopefully the Copernican reference will have some resonance here in that Bohm’s paradigm is completely congruent with our existing knowledge of the explicate order, his interpretation changes our perspective on the data but the data itself is not in dispute here just as Copernicus didn’t alter the sun and planets, he reframed the interpretation of the known observations.

The utility of Bohm’s view is that the accumulating anomalies that fall outside our standard descriptors of the explicate order; entanglement, virtual particles, hidden field effects like the Higgs and gravity, magnetism, the fundamental weirdness of condensates, the otherwise inexplicable results from para psychological research, the behavior of photons in various two slit experiments, fractal equations that
graph out to reveal evocatively familiar forms from the natural world, the non locality of consciousness revealed in the remote viewing experiments by Puthoff and Targ that DARPA funded, and a considerable list of other known examples of high strangeness find a home. These manifestations display the subtle properties of the implicate order in a more obvious way than the equally emergent bowling ball.

From Bohm’s perspective Rossi has evolved the conditions for the emergence of another hidden aspect of the implicate order similar, in principle, to emerging a condensate; and now that the brute force Ecat versions have given way to the subtle and increasingly precise application of non local field effects Rossi has taken to characterizing the output energies of the SK as arising from an unknown source.

In toto this is why the non local field effect described in Aharonov-Bohm matters to Rossi and why it’s important to view Aharonov-Bohm from within the context of Bohm’s broad paradigm for it to be of practical consequence. The recognition that he has been manipulating the implicate order with non local field effects in order to produce an emergent event in the explicate order is the key concept that has put Rossi at the head of the field from the inception of this work and why he now expects to be able to throw that door wide open so that his particular emergent phenomena becomes a stable durable feature of the explicate order.

The final phase of this emergence is to peal away the last vestiges of the epiphenomena that have obscured the essential event, which is the emergence of dense clusters of coherent electrons as the first order energetic manifestation of the SK series as explained in his paper on Long Range Particles Interactions, and to facilitate the direct harvesting of these electrons as electrical current as they emerge in the Leonardo version.

That is the SK Leonardo running in SSM.

Upwards scalability of individual units, zero fuel consumption as the ‘fuel’ is now a catalyst, indefinite operation limited only by the MTBF of the materials of the apparatus, the production of highly desirable clean low cost electricity that can be located adjacent to and directly responsive to the imposed load, radical simplification of the total system design, rock bottom capital costs and a durable strategy for maintaining control of the intellectual property while widely disseminating the benefits.
Small wonder Rossi seems excited, and that the business plan is expected to re-orientate around this development.

Montogmery Childs Comments on SAFIRE Project following Global BEM Conference

The following comment was posted here by Montgomery Childs of the SAFIRE project following the Global BEM Conference which concluded last week.

First of all, I would like to thank everyone at the Global BEM for their efforts to pull the conference together. I wish I had more time to discuss details with both Mats and Bob, but there were so many people and so many conversations, I just couldn’t keep up. It was truly a pleasure to meet you both. What I’m saying is that I just don’t remember every conversation with each person… but I would like to have a one on one with you if you have the time – let me know.

I just watched the video above and would like to make a few comments and minor adjustments for the sake of your audience. We covered a lot of material and it was a lot for our audience to take in. We have enough material to do a 4-hour presentation and 1 hour is just not enough to cover all the details. We try to highlight the most important points and be as open to discussing as much as we can without compromising the IP. We need to raise $9m US for the next three years and do not want to scare off potential investors.

On the subject of temperature:

We verified that we got both thermal and non-thermal responses. For example, the optical spectra showed the normal Boltzmann’s distribution of Mn we showed but we also discovered that at times some of the Mn relative intensities of the triplets were reversed. This means that although the Mn was being formed (for whatever reason) in the atmosphere of the plasma double layer shells it was not due to thermal or collisional reasons. It might be analogous to when one would want to separate H from O in water and bring it to around 5,000 degrees or one can use a 9-volt battery with electrodes. We had, as you could see from the optical spectra many other atomic emissions which we have not at this time-resolved for. Partly because quite frankly some of the eV numbers are so high there is no known reason why they should be there based on standard thermal excitation. We have some ideas rattling around in our brains, but we have work to do before we say anything.

The IR camera reported only a maximum temperature of around 1,600C. There were elements within the metal alloy (secret) that should not have melted, while other materials like the quartz should have shown thermal stress and even started to melt but didn’t… what can I say… we have work to do. Some people have approached us telling us that Brown’s gas creates similar responses, but I don’t think this is quite the same.

We are calling these reactions Electric Nuclear Resonance (ENR) because there is evidence some atoms are being split (non-radioactive – at least for now) and some evidence there are heavier elements being made. In the particle physics world, they call this fission and fusion but we do not think the kinetic energy in the context of these known processes is what is happening. Again analogous to the 9-volt battery separation of H from O in water.

We just want to be damn careful not to make erroneous claims when in fact we don’t know FOR SURE. There is enough bad science going on and there is just too much at stake.

On the subject of controlling the temperature of the anode and prevent it from melting:

We do have control over the melting of the anode but the reason it did is that we were running Design of Experiments (DOE) filter tests on power and other input factors to build a comprehensive DOE baseline. Regardless, we have run many experiments at full power and never had this happen before. Also, as I pointed out in the presentation there are other gas compositions that will actually take energy out of the reactions to the point it will have the effect of cooling the reaction. We may be able to use composition to assist in stabilizing the reactions. Regardless, if it turns out the anode will deteriorate and we can regulate this process then SAFIRE can use the anode alloy and the gas composition as fuel. This is why we talk about “efficiency” and not “zero point”. What I can say is that the elements we are using are very abundant and not expensive. And as you can see from the results SAFIRE likes to make what we call “base elements” non-radioactive isotopes. It could be there are short-lived radio-active isotopes being made during the process, but we don’t have evidence these are living very long IF they are occurring at all. We have work to do.

We are not calling SAFIRE an “over-unity” or “zero point” technology:

We are not denying that “over unity or zero point” technology doesn’t exist. It appears SAFIRE would like to both create monatomic H and eat it as well as the elements in the anode alloy. But we need to confirm this – again we have work to do.

On the subject of “anode disruption”:

We have patents on the anode design we have not fully implemented in the material we presented at the conference. What this means is that there is an opportunity (we think) to regulate the rate of “disruption” but this would be related to using the conversion of H2 to H to free H proton at the surface and cool the internal anode temperature down. Interestingly the anode did respond thermally as I predicted by melting from the inside out according to what is referred to in CFD as “Total Heat Flux” analysis as a CFD input factor in the model. This is good news for us because I think I can reverse engineer these numbers based on the thermal response of the chamber to get a better idea of the total heat flux in W/m^3 to the chamber response temperature – CFD people will understand what I’m saying here. However, if the majority of responses we see are “non-thermal” in nature all bets are off. Again, we have work to do.

EVERYBODY likes to quote my 93% screw up on our model prediction!!! What can I say, yes, I did not expect to see the thermal responses we got. The CFD model cannot resolve for these ENR’s causing the thermal rise in temperature over time. But it wasn’t just me who got this wrong, it was Tommy M. and Lowell M. who did their own separate thermal calculations which showed all of the three of us were within about 50C of each other. It just means as I said – we have work to do. I am certain I can harvest enough of the thermal energy to assure the reactor doesn’t melt. Saying this, I would like to engage you in a conversation about what we need to do over the next three years which I already know you can very likely help us.

Regarding Ni

We are not saying or saying we are using Ni and we don’t know yet if the elements we are using are being consumed and transmuted into other elements – not yet at least – but the evidence indicates this is happening. We have to keep the alloy and gas composition we are using quite for IP reasons – at least for now. I’m sure your audience understands why but I empathize with them – everyone wants to know the ingredients of the “secret sauce”. We are telling everyone as much as we can, and we are being told by certain agencies we’re telling people too much already. We’re trying to find a balance.

Regarding pressure changes:

I did discuss this in a prior lecture/talk – we do see very severe pressure changes of many Torr and high EMI but we have relatively good pressure/vacuum control so we can maintain the necessary environment for the plasma to be stable and run continuously.

Regarding the Sun being positive:

Bob – I love your explanation!!!!!!!!!! The best explanation I have heard yet. The Electric Universe (Wal Thornhill) and Electric Sun (Don Scott) I’m sure would love to talk to you at the next EU conference this coming year in the US. I have said to them that you do not need the Sun to be “plugged” in as Crooks discovered using Rubies and that if you have enough matter coalesced into a large “blob” it will be positive relative to its environment. But your explanation is so much better!!

For Safire, we just plug the darn thing in to get it to be positive. I have much more on the E-field structure (Michael is not preferable to the term structure – yet) prior to and after the plasma has ignited and self-organized. By the way, the self-organization is contingent on a number of factors we do not discuss – part of the “secret sauce” IP.

Anyway, because of the strict Design of Experiments methodology, we use we can resolve for second-order interactions (feedback loops or catalytic interactions) at the atomic level!

On another but related topic:

I think I got to this level of discipline when I worked for Magna International with so many Germans at the engineering level where I was taught and later excelled with them – even as a Canadian and earned they’re very hard to get respect. They promoted me to the highest level within the company as far as a “Canadian” could go. At the time it was a pretty hard environment to work in – Germans don’t put up with any B.S. – it is either “precise and sqvare” or it is “nicked guod”. As a Canadian working with these hard-core Germans, I got a German hair cut. By the way, my wife is German descent – ugh – she told me a few years ago – “if you were a weaker man, I would have left you long ago” – we’ve been married for 42 years now. My ancestry dates back 1000 years into the British midlands. Imagine a German square head for a wife and a British Terrier as her husband. She’s my sweetie pie and I love her so much it hurts… what can I say… I’m still in love after all these years. She accepts nothing but the best from me – a very good thing indeed. She is everything I’m not and I’m everything she is not a great mix if we don’t kill each other. Thank God.

Let’s see if we can take The SAFIRE project to its full potential – and maybe, just maybe we can do some good in this crazy world.

Blessings to all of you,

Monty

Replication Attempt of Ultrasonic Indium (Kedaz)

Thanks to Kedaz for submitting the following comment.

We have been starting a replication attempt of the Ultrasonic Indium today and the initial measurements is included in the following document and more will be added later on.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DzkEFTYZUQ85AcAp2T6ffUzB8qunkLGnSbvE99mAWCQ/edit

The samples was prepared in a class 1000 clean room environment. The indium was cleaned 1min in 10% HCL and rinsed in DI water and dried in nitrogen. 3 pce of the indium foil was immersed in ultrasonic bath in DI water and 1 pce kept as reference.

It was obvious that that that the ultrasonic treatment made severe damages to the indium. It was also discovered a metalic grains in the bath after the treatment.

On the reference sample (untreated) a EDS analysis could only detect Indium.

Most time was send on the treated samples searching for traces. Even though the surface was heavily damaged we had difficulties finding signs of transmutation. After some search we finally found an area where we could find O, AL, Ni, Fe and Ti. Most significant was 82% Ni in one spot and 14% Al in a nearby spot.

Indium

Asia Times Article: “Cold Fusion 1: A Potential Gamechanger” (Nov. 14, 2019)

Thanks to Greg Daigle for posting about this article that has been posted on the Asia Times website. It is the first in a three-part series of articles by Jonathan Tennenbaum, who according to information in the article is the former editor of FUSION magazine, a consultant on economics, science and technology with a PhD in mathematics from the University of California.

This article is titled ”

https://www.asiatimes.com/2019/11/article/cold-fusion-1-a-potential-energy-gamechanger/

This article talks mainly about the work of Pons and Fleischmann, and describes some of their experiments and how the scientific community quickly branded the field “pathological science” after many failed to replicate the work of Pons and Fleischmann. But Tannenbaum is optimistic about the field after seeing what is currently going on (he was at ICCF-22) especially with the involvement of Google now.

He concludes:

Fortunately, after nearly 30 years of effort, great progress has been made toward defining the necessary conditions for cold fusion to occur, and creating a technology base for future commercial applications.

In my view the existence and reproducibility of cold fusion (or, more broadly, LENR) have now been established beyond any reasonable doubt. Here I mean, more precisely: nuclear reactions generating substantial amounts of heat, realizable on a laboratory scale at moderate temperatures in certain solid-state materials implanted to a high density with deuterium or hydrogen; and releasing at most a negligible amount of radiation.

Having attended the ICCF-22 conference, spoken with researchers and studied relevant technical publications, I do not think an unbiased scientist who looks into the matter closely can come to any other conclusion.

The next article will be published in Asia Times tomorrow.

Unusual Story About a Catalytic Converter (Mats Lewan)

The following post was submitted by Mats Lewan.

I got in contact with a mechanic/inventor, working with niche applications with catalytic converters for two and four stroke engines. Through some personal contacts he received a test device—a catalytic converter with amounts of precious metals that supposedly were hundreds of times higher than in ordinary converters.

He mounted the device on a vehicle with a two-stroke engine and started his test system. It performed extremely well, and he then turned the engine off and left it in the workshop. When he came back a few hours later the catalytic converter was glowing white with heat.

He cooled it down with water but it soon turned red again. He then managed to detach it and throw it out of the workshop where it continued to glow. He left it outside the whole night at minus 10 degrees C, and the day after it had all melted and was still about 400 degrees C. Unfortunately he got rid of the melted metal block.

Since catalytic converters are built with lots of different metals, among them palladium and nickel, and since they get heated, I guess that this is not the only (LENR related) incident with this type of test devices with higher amounts of precious metals.

Anyone who knows something? If you don’t want to comment here you can contact me at mats@matslewan.se.

“Electricity, Electricity, Electricity” Rossi Reports Throwing Away “Years of Work” In Quest for Self-Sustaining E-Cat Electricity Generation.

I was under the impression that Andrea Rossi in his current research push was working towards making a self-sustaining E-Cat that was primarily a heater, but I have been corrected. Here is a Q&A from the Journal of Nuclear Physics yesterday.

Frank Acland
November 12, 2019 at 11:57 AM
Dear Andrea,

At the moment, are you working towards a SSM E-Cat with the primary goal of generating heat, or the primary goal of generating electricity?

Andrea Rossi
November 12, 2019 at 5:11 PM
Frank Acland:
Electricity, electricity, electricity. I am working on it with the Team. Today a very good day, important discovery.
Warmest Regards,
A.R.

In response to another question, Rossi gave a little more information:

Karl-Henrik Malmqvist
November 12, 2019 at 7:36 PM
Dear Andrea,
In order to achieve electrical production, are you just adding special components or are you also redesigning the Ballerina to get easier electrical extraction?

Andrea Rossi
November 12, 2019 at 11:27 PM
Karl-Henrik Malmqvist:
We redisigned the Ballerina you saw in
http://www.ecatskdemo.com
. We threw away years of work, made an internal revolution, but it was necessary to arrive where we have to arrive. Courage has been necessary, because we decided not to sit down and enjoy the remarkable results obtained making heat, but I think we are very close and getting closer by the day to our objective. Spent much money, wasted much materials, but it was necessary to make epoche’ on what had been done to arrive where we have to arrive. The pulse has been generated by our theoretical evolution or, better, revolution initiated with
http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
Warm Regards,
A.R.

So it seems that Rossi has decided that the place feel that he “has to arrive” at is a self-sustaining electricity generator which sounds like a more “impossible invention” than the heater. However, as impossible it may sound, based on all I have learned about him over the years I think he will give it his very best shot to achieve his goal, and he might actually succeed.

Article: “Materials Advances Result from Study of Cold Fusion”

Thanks to LION for pointing out this new article published in the November issue of the MRS Bulletin, available at the following link:

https://www.cambridge.org/core/services/aop-cambridge-core/content/view/6DF79E2F5317AE9DCA6AE9284132F288/S0883769419002604a.pdf/div-class-title-materials-advances-result-from-study-of-cold-fusion-div.pdf

Philip Ball, writer for Nature, writes about the Google-sponsored research project to re-explore the field of cold fusion. This article focuses mainly on the materials science aspects of the research, particularly on the process of hydrogen loading of palladium which many cold fusion researchers consider a key for producing an environment in which fusion can occur.

Ball looks at potential benefits of this research in terms of material science, for example, how hydrogen loading could have applications in hydrogen storage technology, and even in the pharmaceutical industry for deuterating drugs.

Global BEM Overview / Q&A (Bob Greenyer Video)

Yesterday Bob Greenyer did a livestream to provide some of his impressions of the Global BEM conference which he had attended, and to give people a chance to ask questions and interact with him. I have not had a chance to listen to most of the session yet, but I have heard that it was very interesting. It runs for over 2 hours. I am sure that Bob will be willing to make further comments here if people have more questions and/or comments.

Two Reports of the SAFIRE Presentation at the Global BEM Conference

Long-time ECW contributor Gerard McEk attended the conference and has provided the following report.

Today I visited the second day of the GlobalBEM conference and I was also able to see the first day via Life Streaming. I enjoyed the presentation of Prof. Theo Almeida Murphy the first day. His presentation was about water and the many, by many of us unknown, properties of it, which I found quite fascinating. One of the interesting issues was about water gas and especially the Ohmasa gas. He showed us pictures that came from Bob Greenyer as Bob confirmed today. Prof. Murphy is certain that with polarization and vibration water can be energized, giving it healthy properties and unusual energy advantages to its surroundings.

Today SAFIRE gave again a great presentation. I had the pleasure to speak with both Montgomery Childs (Canadian) and Dr. Michael Clarage (USA). What strikes me that until now they concentrated on practical research on the electric sun model, not so much the why and how things theoretically can be explained. During a few years, they told us, they just investigated the plasma and the results were not that extraordinary to continue until the last half a year, where they started to use different kind of ‘gases’ and anode materials. The type of gas is unfortunately not disclosed but with certain mixes (some deuterium and/or lithium?) things changed. With only 7% of the design input energy, they got 100% of the design output (113 kW) This means a COP of about 14! And even a meltdown, totally impossible according them and scientists of a Los Alamos lab, they consulted.

They also saw multiple new elements and that were also confirmed by a Los Alamos lab that found even a few more. They can make manganese in the gas atmosphere of the reactor at will and have it disappear again! They are now preparing for a new phase to show that they can make energy. Michael Clarage prefers to treat radioactive material and deactivate it, as Michael expects to have NDA/Secrecy with the US issues, when generating energy.

I believe it is time that the world stands up and embraces this new technology without fighting for power, economical advantage or whatever, but develop this quickly, as it might be the only way that we can survive global warming. Let us join and pull all the strings we have, to avoid any country or company wants to keep this for themself. Let us develop this as a joint project to safe the world!

Also, Mats Lewan and Bob Greenyer have provided a video report from the Global BEM Conference in the Netherlands, after having listened to the presentation from the SAFIRE Project team. The video is below:

Mats says that after listening to the presentation he thinks what the SAFIRE project is describing is very similar to Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat, just on a much larger scale. He mentioned that the SAFIRE team reported having a very sudden ‘energy event’ where they reached 2000-3000 degrees, and he says he has heard that Rossi has experienced similar events. Bob says that the SAFIRE anode gets very ‘seriously disrupted’ which can cause problems for the reactor. He also reports that the SAFIRE team is producing ‘copious amounts’ of atomic hydrogen using a steel anode. They also say that they are not producing radioactive isotopes.
