Thank you for the apology.
The most important thing Ive ever learned is this..."keep an open mind" I neither believe or disbelieve claims by Rossi, Mills, et all, I certainly hope that what they have is real but I certainly don't take them at face value. I have been fed so much doo doo as a project inspector that I never take a bite out of a sandwich a contractor hands me unless I smell it first. (wastewater analogy) Unfortunately I cannot examine a quarkX or suncell to see how it actually operates but I have to sift through videos, reports and statements to get a picture of what is happening.
I have come to some basic conclusions:
1. There is some unknown physics that has been discovered that releases energy in a way that is neither chemical or nuclear (ie fusion, fission, chemical reactions)
2. Many different groups are trying to build a commercial device to exploit this discovery and or trying to buy into this work by throwing money around purchasing IP rights.
3. Many companies and countries are working behind the scenes to develop this science into workable technology. The military applications are staggering, transportation, mining, manufacturing... everything will change
Somehow, somewhere, somebody will make a breakthrough and produce a workable device. Now this may only be cost effective for certain applications and never replace grid electricity and automotive applications. How much would the military pay for such an energy device in remote locations, surveillance, and offensive weaponry systems?
The one thing I worry about is that LENR will get tied up in patent disputes where everyone is suing each other and nothing gets built. I think in the long term this technology will be developed and will be cost effective to change the planet. My top 3 technology's to watch are- LENR, EM Drive, and 3D printing(precursor to nano manufacturing)
