    While you, I, and most here, will see this as biased, IMO someone not immersed in the science would walk away with a fairly balanced perspective of the pros/cons of the issues. It seems to be positioning itself in the middle of the debate, and not taking sides. Maybe that is how it is programed to be? If so, it may be good for LENR.

    After reading the generated responses, I would think someone unfamiliar with LENR might conclude it could be real...which would be progress in our mission to educate the public.

    In that sense, he has been greatly succesful on keeping funds flowing to keep his personal crusade to be proven right going on. This is not fraud, just misaligning between what the investors want and what Mills want.

    He did mention all the granted patents they have. Not sure if they produce a revenue stream on top of investor money. If they do bring in income, again unsure if it is used for research, or to reimburse investors.

    At one point he claims $120 million has gone into getting to where he is now. If true, certainly he has been far more successful attracting funding than anyone else in the field over the last 34 years.

    he sure can talk the talk,,but the walk is 33 years now

    It might surprise many when I say I agree with you. After 33 years promising to be months away from a commercial product launch, he deserves the disbelief and sarcasm he gets with his latest sales pitch. It is up to him, not me, to convince everyone that this time it is for real.

    That said, his story still baffles me. Really, the only aspect, IMO, that points to fraud is the 33 years you mention with nothing to show for it. After that, all the elements point to a brilliant scientific mind with a new discovery, who can attract enough investment to keep the lab lights on, but incompetent at running a business.

    I guess BLP would not show difficult feedback..

    such as "Aren't you gonna toast your PV cells?"

    Was wondering about that also. At 15:45 he answers a question about whether the materials can withstand the high power produced. He says they use to melt the "infrastructure in the bottom", but found "optically getting that power out of there" (through quartz) worked, so they don't have that problem anymore. Of course, once that power is transferred out...what about the PV?

    Starting at 3:15 he discusses at length the "massive advantages" optical transfer in conjunction with the concentrated PV has over thermal transfer of the generated power. It does not sound as if the PV system is a problem the way he describes it at several points. All "off the shelf" tech according to him, and well within the PV industries capabilities. Somewhere he says they are working with 2 PV companies on that.

    His business model is beyond reproach…

    32 years and counting, no?

    No reason to be sarcastic about it. Most agree that he is a lousy businessman. Even some of those around him feel the same, and would agree that if he stepped aside, BLP would be the better for it.

    Tell me though how he has fooled so many credible people, institutions, and his own highly qualified employees, who have validated and successfully tested his tech, or worked side by side with him developing the tech/theory, and I will be done with him.

    Even a pessimist such as yourself must be curious? He has never fit the scammer profile like a Rossi to me. It may turn out that he is, but if so, his story will be different. Much more sophisticated. Truly brilliant. He would have to be to fool the likes of me. :)

    Well...the main takeaway from this latest of 32 years (and counting) BLP/BrLP updates, is there is (if my source is correct) a prototype that should be easily testable by potential investors and buyers. That should be of some comfort to those interested. Little, if any, risk IMO in checking it out in that case. The potential return on investment of course, is huge. Not just for them, but the planet.

    New video on YouTube that shows the optical intensity of the reaction, without the photovoltaic array that will eventually be used to harness the light. I don't know how long it can run, but Mills claims the power gain is sufficient to convert the light to electricity with a substantial net electrical gain.

    BLP is ready to demonstrate the prototype to potential corporate partners and investors. I am told this prototype will make it very easy for 3rd parties to do their due diligence.

    IMO, Duncan has probably been one of the most secretive (quiet is probably a better description) researchers in the field since joining in the LENR search after his 60 Minutes interview. Especially after he left SKINR and took up a position at Texas Tech. I see from your post, he now admits doing LENR research at his Center of Emerging Energy Sciences (CEES) at the Texas Tech University Department he now heads up. That is new to me, so thanks. Good to know, and important news.

    He also started Seashore Research LLC near the TT campus for the same purpose. It was reportedly funded by Bill Gates. Not sure where all this comes together, but with that much activity I see it as very promising. At ICCF24 last summer, he broke his silence with a very positive presence, and upbeat message with what he was seeing in the lab. Before then, most of us assumed he had failed in the lab and was quietly making his exit for the door.


    I think it might help motivate further interest in your work if you could provide some proof you are in fact achieving the results you claim in your lab. You often mention *we* have done this, seen that, if others are on your team. Could one of them back up what you say? Data, pictures, independent verification, anything that might reassure others that they will not waste their time pursuing your Mizuno replication techniques?

    I will say that you appear to know what you are talking about, and know things only people doing the lab work would know. But you have always come across that way, yet here we are years later and still nothing to show for all the effort.

    The COVID-19 pandemic led to government interventions into the social and economic structures of our society that were unprecedented in their severity and duration. The fact that different states and localities took different approaches to imposing these measures created an opportunity to determine whether these interventions improved health outcomes, what economic and social side effects the interventions caused, and whether the interventions influenced people’s decisions about where to live.

    This paper compares a quantitative measure of government interventions from the Oxford COVID-19 Government Response Tracker—a systematic collection of information on policy measures that governments have taken to combat COVID-19—to health, economic, and educational outcome measures in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. We use the Government Response Index, which is the Oxford researchers’ most comprehensive index.

    Our results show that more severe government interventions, as measured by the Oxford index, did not significantly improve health outcomes (age-adjusted and pre-existing-condition adjusted COVID mortality and all-cause excess mortality) in states that imposed them relative to states that imposed less restrictive measures. But the severity of the government response was strongly correlated with worse economic (increased unemployment and decreased GDP) and educational (days of in-person schooling) outcomes and with a worse overall COVID outcomes score that equally weighted the health, economic, and educational outcomes.

    We also used Census data on domestic migration to examine whether government pandemic measures affected state-to-state migration decisions. We compared the net change in migration into or out of states in the pandemic period between July 1, 2020, and June 30, 2022, with the migration patterns over five pre-pandemic years. There was a substantial increase in domestic migration during the pandemic compared to pre-pandemic trends. There was also a significant negative correlation between states’ government response measures and states’ net pandemic migration, suggesting that people fled states with more severe lockdowns and moved to states with less severe measures

    "[Lewis] thought the heating coefficient (the calibration constant) was changing as the experiment proceeded. He thought that at the beginning of the test, 1 watt of electrochemical power caused the temperature to rise 14.0°C, and later that same power caused the temperature to rise 15.9°C, 14% higher. While it is conceivable that happened, that would mean the instruments were malfunctioning or the cell was configured wrong, so the experiment should have been done over. It is more likely that the instruments were working correctly, and the higher temperature was caused by 14% anomalous excess heat added to the electrochemical power."

    Here is where he discusses that. It caught my attention while watching:
