I am starting this new thread as there is not any already existing that is solely focused in the study of the remarkable work of Takaaki Matsumoto, he is mentioned often as supporting evidence for the work of others, but I think he deserves a space on his own.
I have to admit that I have just recently become aware of the importance of Matsumoto’s findings. I have to thank Bob Greenyer for his impressive work finding and highlighting the relevance of his work among the work of so many others. It took a sweet time for me to realize how important, and how overlooked, it has been. I even watched a video in July 2020, in which Bob talked largely about how important it was
but it only struck me (like a brick in the head) much later when I finally got all the papers of Matsumoto I could get my hands on, and begun reading them with care and attention to detail.
It is mind boggling to realize how this evidence has been largely sidetracked and at most used as a supporting prop for the ideas of others, and never taken at face value, brushing aside some of the most important facts that can be deducted from it when looked without bias or preconception.
Matsumoto himself did something I think is revolutionary: he put aside the problem of “excess heat” and focused in what he, being a nuclear physicist, knew better: finding evidence of nuclear interactions by looking for particle emissions during “cold fusion” experiments.
And boy, did he find it, in droves. Anyone skeptical of LENR should be shown the work of Matsumoto.
He completely proved the phenomena involves nuclear interactions, but of a completely unknown or unacknowledged kind.
I will post again here the link to the virtual folder where I uploaded those papers. I will be using this thread for making posts that will focus on highlighting important aspects of his work. I hope this thread serves others to realize how important is this work and why we should all be well versed in it.
