Maxwell-Dirac Theory and Occam’s Razor: Unified Field, Elementary Particles, and Nuclear Interactions

We introduce and use the space-time Clifford algebra, showing that only one fundamental physical entity is sufficient to describe the origin of electromagnetic fields, charges and currents: the electromagnetic four-potential. This simplified electromagnetic model turns out to be an improved understanding of electromagnetism. The obtained electromagnetic Lagrangian is the simplest possible relativistic Lagrangian formulation. Quantum mechanical relations follow naturally from this model, and we derive the electromagnetic formulation of the Dirac equation. The spinor field is shown to correspond to electromagnetic energy-momentum, and the complex-valued probability density is shown to correspond to electromagnetic Lagrangian density. This initial part of the book completes the theory initiated by Maxwell and Dirac.

The structure and dynamics of the electron are described next, showing how its mass originates from the electromagnetic field energy and showing how mass varies relativistically. Using this model, we derive the charge quantization mechanism. This part fulfills Einstein’s wish for understanding the electron before attempting to understand more complex particles. Through the study of electron dynamics, a more elaborate understanding of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle is developed, which is indispensable for understanding nuclear interactions.

The book concludes by showing how the same model can be applied to describe nuclear forces and nucleons, and a very large set of “anomalous” or unexplained experimental data suddenly make sense.

————————————–
Here, Rossi shows an interest in the structure of the electron by understanding the breakup of the electron into its more fundamental components.

An Amazon review as follows:

This is a difficult review to write. This is a very important book that will at some point be recognized for what it tries to do. It is a revolutionary and important scientific achievement. I would give it five stars for the science. However, I would give it one star for the personal character of the authors. First the book. Fixing the mess that is the standard model of quantum mechanics is one of the most important science projects of the 21st century. While touted as the most successful theory ever, the standard model has become a hodge podge of random assumptions and fudge factors leading to absurd conclusions about the nature of the universe. This book makes a very important contribution, beginning by reformulating the electron as an extended particle. The authors go on to state “the electron, and perhaps all other elementary charged particles, can be viewed as a charge distribution that rotates at the speed of light along a circumference whose length is equal to its Compton wavelength.” Modeling the elementary particles in this manner greatly simplifies quantum physics with so many insights just falling naturally and simply out of the math. The authors redefine the Heisenberg uncertainty principle while providing a straight forward explanation of electron tunneling. They further unify physics showing the strong and weak forces relationship to the electro-magnetic force.

Now the problem. The basic ideas in this book have already been deeply explored by Randell Mills in his three volume work “The Grand Unified Theory of Classical Physics”. The authors are well aware of this work since they reference J Naudts paper “On the hydrino state of the relativistic hydrogen atom”, which is all about Mills’ theories. But the authors never mention Mills directly. Clearly a deliberate snub. There are many similarities and many differences in the two works. The authors of this book, like Mills, model the electron as an extended massless charge that rotates at the speed of light. Mills calls this the orbitsphere. In Mills’ model the orbitsphere is a fairly complex pattern of currents that give rise to spin and other quantum features. In the present work it is an overall helical motion of the electron itself that is fundamental. The authors of the present work spend a lot of ink discussing Low Energy Nuclear Fusion and the role of collapsed hydrogen. Mills of course was one of the first to fully formulate the concept of collapsed hydrogen with an electron orbit below the Bohr state. He even coined the term “hydrino” to refer to this state. Mills states that LENR is possible but only at very small rates. The real source of excess energy is not LENR but the collapsing of the orbital itself. He explains in great detail why certain elements (eg. Lithium) and some compounds act as catalysts for this reaction. Not addressing and contrasting Mills’ model, which I believe to be actually simpler and more robust in explanatory power, the authors are as corrupted as the gate keepers of the standard model who they call to task for hampering advancements in nuclear physics.

I commend the authors for providing an outstanding work that seeks to correct the errors of nuclear physics and directly challenges the status quo. I condemn them for being as intellectually dishonest and frankly cowardly for engaging in the same censorship as the majority of the entrenched physics community.
The disagreement between this book and Mill theory is that Mills rejects quantum mechanics which forms the basis premise of this book.

What neither Mills nor Rossi has not yet recognized is the connection between the spinor and the Higgs field and how that connecting results in the LENR reaction.

Brian Albiston Reports on Mizuno Analog Experiment — No Excess So Far (LENR Forum)

Thanks to LION for posting a link on LENR Forum which was posted by researcher Brian Albiston who has been working to replicate the Mizuno LENR experiment.

https://www.lenr-forum.com/forum/thread/6213-albiston-fluxheat-mizuno-analogue-experiments/?postID=126759#post126759

Brian has done an excellent job sharing data, descriptions and photos of his work. So far however he has not been able to replicate Mizuno’s results or anything close to them. He states that he is working alone and being assisted with funding by his FluxHeat business partner.

He writes:

“I am now one week into my first “fueled” Mizuno analog experiment and so far have seen no evidence of unconventional behavior. I want to share my experimental setup so that if unconventional results are later seen there is a previous understanding of my test setup and procedures.”

He explains that the preparation of the mesh is difficult and he is not even sure if was able to get any palladium deposited on the nickel mesh.

He says he is continuing to work on this experiment and is doing a “second pump down and bake out which will likely last another several days”

NYT: “Tragedy of Germany’s Energy Experiment”

An opinion piece in the New York Times by Jochen Bittner highlights some of the problems that are faced when policymakers seek to move away from carbon sources of energy. Bittner discusses the case of Germany where there is a strong push by the government to move to renewable sources of fuels, while at the same time rejecting nuclear power.

He writes that Germany is struggling to meet the commitment of reducing carbon emissions by 40 percent by the end of this year, and that some Germans in rural areas are tiring of the increasing number of wind parks that are being built.

From the article:

“The tragedy about Germany’s energy experiment is that the country’s almost religious antinuclear attitude doesn’t leave room for advances in technology. Scientists in America, Russia and China believe that it is possible to run nuclear power plants on radioactive waste — which might solve the problem of how to store used fuel elements, one of the core arguments against nuclear. Certainly, these so-called fast breeder reactors have their dangers too. But as we transition to a completely renewable energy supply, wouldn’t they be a better alternative to coal and gas plants?”

The problem of what to do with nuclear waste is the main objection to nuclear power, but we have been hearing of promising work of how some efforts of using transmutation (e.g. SAFIRE, Cardone, et. al.) to remediate nuclear waste could be promising. It would be interesting to see how things might change if the nuclear waste problem turned out to be solvable.

U.S. Department of Energy Launches Energy Storage Grand Challenge JANUARY 8, 2020

The following news release was published January 8, 2020 by the US Department of Energy here:
https://www.energy.gov/articles/us-department-energy-launches-energy-storage-grand-challengehttps://www.energy.gov/articles/us-department-energy-launches-energy-storage-grand-challengehttps://www.energy.gov/articles/us-department-energy-launches-energy-storage-grand-challenge

WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, U.S. Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette announced the launch of the Energy Storage Grand Challenge, a comprehensive program to accelerate the development, commercialization, and utilization of next-generation energy storage technologies and sustain American global leadership in energy storage. The Grand Challenge builds on the $158 million Advanced Energy Storage Initiative announced in President Trump’s Fiscal Year 2020 budget request.

“Energy storage is key to capturing the full value of our diverse energy resources,” said Secretary Brouillette. “Through this Grand Challenge, we will deploy the Department’s extensive resources and expertise to address the technology development, commercialization, manufacturing, valuation, and workforce challenges to position the U.S. for global leadership in the energy storage technologies of the future.”

The vision for the Energy Storage Grand Challenge is to create and sustain global leadership in energy storage utilization and exports, with a secure domestic manufacturing supply chain that is independent of foreign sources of critical materials, by 2030. While research and development (R&D) is the foundation of advancing energy storage technologies, the Department recognizes that global leadership also requires addressing associated challenges.

Using a coordinated suite of R&D funding opportunities, prizes, partnerships, and other programs, the Energy Storage Grand Challenge sets the following goals for the U.S. to reach by 2030:

1. Technology Development: Establish ambitious, achievable performance goals, and a comprehensive R&D portfolio to achieve them;

2. Technology Transfer: Accelerate the technology pipeline from research to system design to private sector adoption through rigorous system evaluation, performance validation, siting tools, and targeted collaborations;

3. Policy and Valuation: Develop best-in-class models, data, and analysis to inform the most effective value proposition and use cases for storage technologies;

5. Manufacturing and Supply Chain: Design new technologies to strengthen U.S. manufacturing and recyclability, and to reduce dependence on foreign sources of critical materials; and

6. Workforce: Train the next generation of American workers to meet the needs of the 21st century electric grid and energy storage value chain.

The Energy Storage Grand Challenge is a cross-cutting effort managed by DOE’s Research and Technology Investment Committee (RTIC). The Department established the RTIC in 2019 to convene the key elements of DOE that support R&D activities, coordinate their strategic research priorities, and identify potential cross-cutting opportunities in both basic and applied science and technology.

In September 2018, Congress passed the “Department of Energy Research and Innovation Act” codifying the efforts of the RTIC. The Energy Storage Subcommittee of the RTIC is co-chaired by the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and Office of Electricity and includes the Office of Science, Office of Fossil Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy, Office of Technology Transitions, ARPA-E, Office of Policy, the Loan Programs Office, and the Office of the Chief Financial Officer.

As a first step in the Challenge, DOE will soon release requests for information (RFI) soliciting stakeholder feedback on the key questions and issues the Challenge seeks to address. Over the coming weeks, DOE will host also host a series of workshops with key stakeholders to share information about various storage technologies, learn more about current barriers to deployment, and help shape the work that will bring those technologies to market. This work will inform the development a coordinated R&D roadmap to 2030 for a broad suite of storage and flexibility technologies. This roadmap will be guided by a set of use cases that describe ambitious grid applications that can be accomplished with advancements in these technologies.

As the Grand Challenge develops, DOE looks forward to engaging with stakeholders to develop a complex-wide strategy to position the U.S. for global leadership in energy storage. Additional information about the Grand Challenge and upcoming events can be found here.

MFMP Video: “Looking back – looking forward – Let’s make 2020 the year of LENR”

Bob Greenyer did a livestream video yesterday and here is the recording of it. Sorry I missed the live broadcasting of it.

Here is his description from YouTube

ERRATA: Around 30 mins Bob says “Saltpeter” when he meant “Potash”, at the end of the video he correctly calls K2CO3 – potash.

NOTE: The best kind of Potash for these experiments would be made from burnt wood as it would have 14C baring carbon. This was the kind as used by the Alchemists.

Here is the English translation of Parkhomov paper – there will be an update with links to videos of many of the tests.

Christmas Greetings to All!

I just would like to wish all my E-Cat World friends a very Happy Christmas and a great 2020. It’s been almost 9 years since this website started and it has been my daily pleasure to maintain the site and keep up with the comments and messages from readers. I really do appreciate the warm feelings, interesting comments and sometimes good fun from you all.

I think we all know why we are here and keep interested in this field. For me it’s too compelling of a story to stop paying attention, so here I am, here for the duration, I hope. Ultimately, like most of the readers here, I’m hoping that at some point a technology will break out that will contribute to making our world a better place to live.

Whether 2020 will be the year of the E-Cat breakout remains to be seen. I’ve been in a state of expectation for years now and have learned to temper my enthusiasm and just wait and see what happens. Personally, I think Andrea Rossi has the most advanced of all the technologies in the LENR universe, but it’s not clear to me whether he a market-ready product yet. He seem to still be R&D mode. I asked him yesterday which of the following descriptions most closely represented the current state of the E-Cat SKL:

1. Not working at all
2. Not working well
3. Satisfactory but needs improvement
4. Superior, with minor flaws
5. Flawless

His answer was: 3. So we’ll have to see what 2020 brings. Meanwhile thanks again for all the interested and supportive readers of ECW. I sure enjoy my time with you all! I hope you enjoy a happy holiday season with loved ones and good friends, and celebrate the season in meaningful ways.

PrimerField Ion Thruster (Primerfield.org)

The following has been submitted by an ECW reader.

“The revolutionary PrimerField Ion Thruster and Energy Generator core technology. This technology is patent-pending, but is being shared with the world to ensure that it can never be suppressed. See more information at www.primercube.org”

PrimerField Ion Thruster Information

Our licensing approach to this new technology.

“Although still in the early development stages, this new application of PrimerField Technology is destined to change the future. All rights to this technology have been granted to the PrimerField Foundation by the inventor David LaPoint. This technology is patent pending and our intention is to license this technology to companies with the resources to properly develop it in a way that will best benefit all mankind. Mr. LaPoint considered making this technology open source as he did with the PrimerCube, but he decided that using a controlled licensing approach would be the best for everyone. He believes that this approach will allow the companies licensing the technology to invest the substantial capital required to get this technology in mass production knowing that they will be able to recoup their initial investment. Mr. LaPoint obviously believes in open source for some things but not with this aspect of PrimerField technology. For some products there has to be huge initial investment to get the cost per unit down and the open source approach simply will not allow for this huge initial investment to be recouped.

Take the iPhone 11 Pro as an example. If Apple was not allowed to patent and protect their concepts then the iPhone 11 Pro would not be in existence for Mr. LaPoint to use to provide you with the videos that brought you here. So sometimes the capitalistic approach is the best way to get new technology to the people the fastest and at an affordable price point. An interesting fact is that Apple has 700 engineers who work just on the camera aspect of the iPhone. How would this possibly have happened in an open source approach and who would pay their salaries?

As for the licensing fees collected by the PrimerField Foundation, they will be used to help the poor and needy of this world. Our mission is to improve the health and happiness of all people and we intend to do just that. We are here to tell you that there is hope for our world and we intend to make this world a better place as fast as possible.

The PrimerField Foundation intends to protect its patent rights for the Ion Thruster for propulsion and energy generation. But those who are investigating this technology for educational purposes are allowed to use this technology free of charge. Additionally this technology may also be used for health and medical applications as long as those doing so do not develop technology from it that they then patent in order to keep others from benefiting from it. We would expect them to share this development with the world at a fair price, just as we are.

The Ion Thruster and Energy Generation

Mr. LaPoint has developed some very interesting approaches to generating energy using the core concepts in the Ion Thruster. He hopes to publish those concepts by the end of 2019 both on this website and in videos on his YouTube channel. If Mr. LaPoint is correct about these concepts it will mean the ability to produce low cost solid state energy generators for use in the home, in your automobile, in space, or small portable generators for camping etc. This of course will radically change the future and end the need for fossil fuels for energy production. The rights to this technology is being granted to the PrimerField Foundation as outlined above. Our plan is to license this technology as outlined above and use the monies collected to improve the lives of the poor of this world who cannot help themselves.”

The Future of Trucking? Plus.ai Announces First Autonomous Coast-to-Coat Commercial Freight Run

The following video and press release have been published by California-based company Plus.ai.

 

Plus.ai Completes First Cross-Country Commercial Freight Run by a Self-Driving Truck in Record Three Days

The Industry’s First Commercial Autonomous Coast-to-Coast Haul Brings Over 40,000 Pounds of Land O Lakes® Butter to Families in Time for Year-End Holidays

December 10, 2019 09:00 AM Eastern Standard Time

CUPERTINO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Plus.ai (www.plus.ai), a leading provider of self-driving trucking technology, today announced that it has completed the first coast-to-coast commercial freight run with an autonomous truck on behalf of Land O’Lakes, Inc. Spanning 2,800 miles, Plus.ai’s L4 autonomous truck completed the hub-to-hub trip from Tulare, CA to Quakertown, PA in less than three days. This is the first L4 U.S. cross-country commercial pilot hauling a fully-loaded refrigerated trailer of perishable cargo.

The truck was equipped with Plus.ai’s advanced autonomous driving system which utilizes multimodal sensor fusion, deep learning visual algorithms, and simultaneous location and mapping (SLAM) technologies. The journey was an important milestone in validating the system’s ability to safely handle a wide range of weather and road conditions. The vehicle drove primarily in autonomous mode through the 2,800 miles across interstate 15 and interstate 70, passing through varied terrains and weather conditions. A safety driver was onboard at all times to monitor and assume control if needed, and a safety engineer was present to monitor system operations.

“This cross-country freight run with Land O’Lakes shows the safety, efficiency and maturity of our autonomous trucks, which are already delivering freight for other partners several days a week,” said Shawn Kerrigan, COO and co-founder of Plus.ai. “Continued advances in our autonomous trucks will make it possible for these quick cross-country runs to be the norm in the future. We are excited to demonstrate what our technology can already achieve today while meeting rigorous autonomous driving safety and food transportation compliance standards.”

“Self-driving and other emerging transportation technologies stand to completely reshape commercial shipping, so we are thrilled to collaborate with technology leaders like Plus.ai to pilot autonomous trucks for our shipping needs,” said Yone Dewberry, Land O’Lakes’ Chief Supply Chain Officer. “End of the year is a very busy time for us. To be able to address this peak demand with a fuel- and cost-effective freight transport solution will be tremendously valuable to our business.”

On its continuous cross-country journey, the Plus.ai autonomous truck safely navigated driving day and night through the expansive plains of Kansas, winding roads of the Rockies, road construction, multi-mile tunnels, over 11,000 feet elevation, and was greeted with rainy and snowy roads heading east, all in under three days. This is a powerful demonstration of the safety and efficiency that can be achieved when autonomous trucks become commercially available.

Photos from our cross-country trip can be downloaded here.

Excess Heat Production Reported in New Mizuno Replication (Hokkaido University of Science)

Jed Rothwell has posted an updated paper on LENR-CANR website which reports how Dr. S. Saito and two assistants at Hokkaido University of Science in Japan have measured excess heat in a replication of the Mizuno Nickel-Palladium experiment.

https://www.lenr-canr.org/acrobat/MizunoTsupplement.pdf

Here is a quote and image from the paper:

Figure 4 shows the results of an excess heat test. By coincidence, the total heat measured in
the air flow is about the same as input power; around 500 W. (In other words, the blue line
happens to reach the orange line.) However, as shown in the calibration, if there were no excess
heat, the blue line would be lower, at 350 W instead, so the reaction is producing about 150 W.

At 8,000 s, the heat increases abruptly, even though input power is stable. At 35,000 s heat
increases to ~510 W, above the orange line, and then falls back at 40,000 s, even though there is
no change in input power. Such perturbations never occur during stable calibrations, so the
increased power comes from a reaction, rather than input power.
