    AA: As I told you already, I am not interested in rehashing this ancient history.

    How can you correctly evaluate IH's honesty, or Rossi's deceit, without such "ancient history"? Cutting off all the extraordinary disclosals (much more than normally…

    Axil, a theory is a precisely defined set of propositions (usually mathematical) from which definite scientific predictions can be made. Crucially the theory needs to be simpler than the entire collection of observations that can be…

    Adrian: let me be more direct:

    I haven't attempted to rationalize Tom Darden's testimony as as I don't think IH's testimony is any more reliable than Rossi's. It didn't get argued and adjudicated in court, so is not proven.

    Court testimony will be…

    Adrian:

    All parties knew when giving testimony that what they said would be tested in Court, and therefore would be careful. Where in Rossi's testimony does he contradict Darden's evidence?

    But in any case - you are here…

    Perhaps you could address the specifics I mention? How you rationalise Tom Darden's sworn testimony about Rossi's test protocol that showed an unfuelled reactor giving the same output as a whole set of fuelled reactors?

    That, more or less, is as I see it. He feels that not being "fair" to Rossi shows bias, and that to be fair we need generously to assume his statements most likely true until they are definitively disproven.

    From my point of view it is always possible to present a rational case, and make rational rebuttal of other arguments that are unsound. On this thread it seems that must be done repeatedly. That is boring, but OK. Adrian…

    Significant technical issue?

    AA: Rossi worked on the QX reactor for a long time and (as many times before) said he would demonstrate it , and then did so. There were two measurements he didn't show at Stockholm, that he aid were proprietary, and as I

    There are no relevant technical issues to discuss. Rossi's demos do not make technical sense. He is a serial liar, whose statements about what he is doing have proved false. So the conversation here can only get technical in…

    Adrian, this is an example of stories triumphing over reality.

    Suppose Rossi has a working LENR reactor => kW of heat power available essentially for free.


    In fact - he claimed he had this 7 years ago (heating his factory)…

    Rossi's ability to think up new Anglo-Saxon names only slightly recycled from famous film characters is exemplary.

    Let me be more precise. Rossi attracts many enthusiastic people via his blog. In the past when he has wanted PR from academics etc he has been able to find professors who support him. It is Rossi choosing in the sense that…

    Rossi does not need such complexity. He chooses followers who are totally uninterested in or incapable of measuring power.

    A good story late at night in a smart restaurant (as we heard from Marci's revealing blog is Rossi's speciality) is worth a…

    Objection, assumes facts not in evidence.


    And just because when I was a lowly summer associate at O'Melveny & Myers and a senior partner severely beat me up about this, "since" and "while" are temporal, "because" or "as" is…

    The babblers think Rossi is guilty until proven innocent and also that that is impossible. It is not a logical position.


    Perhaps your confusion here is that you do not understand weight of (inductive) evidence, and the importance of induction in…

    Many of us have been waiting and believing and hoping that LENR would arrive soon.

    This is one of the key questions that makes Rossi of interest to Rossi-watchers. His deceptive actions have been magnificently (sic) self-serving - in a material sense - from the money he has extracted from license-holders…

    Your comment has me very confused. Just above you said, and I quote: "There is a good chance he will demonstrate the QX live as he now has a commercial unit." (emphasis added) Yet you now say in response to my question…

    That's the normal behavior due to the turbulence in a water flux, when the tip of T probe is wetted by eddies at different temperatures that flows through it. You can see that the oscillation are small until t=11s because the water…

    There are very many ways in which waveforms look "spiky" which are not LENR.

    For example: the input power waveform is spiky (very obviously so). Is this LENR? No, it is some no doubt identifiable, but unidentified for us,…
