    Dear all,

    RB continues to post noise on here when asked to substantiate his view.

    It is a free site but if I go on patiently replying to him this just gets worse. I intend to ignore him when he posts repetitive stuff (396,398,400,404). Please would…

    I don't see the "Internal Dumping Ground" link.

    It would be great if I could retrieve these posts. They are relevant for the Mizuno heater. The posts I am interested in would have been put up in the summer of 2018 and are…

    Well then I am steamed because I spent many hours producing a series of about a half-dozen posts laying out how modern dynamical systems theory can be used to understand the behaviour of a reactor equipped with a…

    Temperature-dependent activation of excess heating does not necessarily mean that the reaction stays on once the electrical heating is removed. There are a number of different scenarios depending on the rate of passive…

    Cydonia What PhysicsForDummies want to call out is the following (in this example):
    Some stranger from the internet (Zephir over at ECW) found and read a paper about an interesting but not revolutionary physical effect.
    Then Zephir wrote on ECW that…

    It is true that in any normal scientific situation such minute analysis of results from a paper is just silly. Why?
    • Results are replicable, the person who generates them will repeat and correct any errors.
    • Results follow patterns

    Reflections on hotwiregate and Mizuno-style results

    First, a big thank you to Alan for useful investigation and presenting results without presumption or claim to know whether they apply. Alan is…

    Wrong on both counts. First, homeopathy and astrology do have quantifiable results. That is how we know they don't work. Second, astrology and homeopathy would have the potential to change the world, if true. You seem to think…

    Not quite sure who you are referring to when you say "they" ... but my general reaction is good! Claims that have been tested and found wanting should receive little but the barest government funds. It is basically the business…

    I wouldn't say that TTH is being quick here. Just the opposite, he is careful and methodical. Nor would I say that he is dismissive. Instead I would describe him as slow to accept. And this is entirely proper. This is how…

    Desireless, can, Paradigmnoia, Alan Smith, Alan Goldwater .... and, it seems, many others. All Mizuno replicators.

    Is anyone keeping a list of M-replicators?

    Will LF have a thread that is only for these M-replicators to report results?

    I take your point about people needing a basis of technical experience in order to effectively follow published instructions. However I think you do not appreciate that the same instructions may be accomplished differently in…

    I won't get into motivations or psychology. Ascoli just seems to have a skill that involves being able to pay attention to detail and digging into things that most would overlook.

    I agree with the "see what happens over longer timescales" and also different replications.

    I'd only point out the possibility that Mizuno's results were in fact a mistake, which stays on the table, and will become stronger if…

    You are absolutely right. Schectman's degrees are in engineering. My argument remains the same though ... would you ignore Einstein because he wasn't an engineer? Would you ignore others who made revolutionary discoveries because…

    Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. In the field of crystallography, then, you would have ignored Shechtman because he wasn't an engineer?
  • There have been many scientific discoveries that were mocked, derided or ignored but later turned out to be completely valid.

    In the same article Shechtman says that Pauling eventually couldn't get his papers published because they were so obviously against the evidence. Shechtman himself was able to publish his discovery in a top flight journal within 2…
