Thoughts on the E-Cat Current Question (Hank Mills)

The following post was sent by Hank Mills

Some people looking at the Lugano report are asking questions about the increase in current during the 32 day test of the E-Cat compared to the dummy run. They assert the increase in current means that the power input measurements were flawed, and the E-Cat produced no excess heat.

I propose the possibility that the resistor is being bathed in alpha particles from proton-lithium interactions, in a similar manner to Paul Brown’s Resonant Nuclear Battery. In his devices, the electrode’s resistance decreased, current increased, and massive amounts of electricity and heat were produced.

My thoughts on this topic can be found at an article I have written at PESWiki. Here’s an excerpt:

There is a lot we don’t know about what’s happening inside of the reactor core. There could be something taking place that is allowing for increased current without requiring an increased input power. In response to questions about this issue, Andrea Rossi has indicated the resistor inside the E-Cat is doped and has unique properties that cannot be disclosed due to the need to protect intellectual property. There is no reason to doubt this, in my opinion. I believe it is infinitely more likely than the ridiculous notion the testers would setup the current clamps correctly for the dummy run (measuring perfect unity when comparing input to output) and to measure the power consumption of the control box (which matched the specifications provided by the manufacturer), but that they would then change the clamp setup to produce inaccurate readings for the actual test. In fact, I have been told today that the power monitor would have beeped at them if the clamps had been connected incorrectly. The logical conclusion is that there is something unique about the resistors or their environment inside the E-Cat that allows for the increased current.

    I agree.

    The subject has been done to death, put it out of it’s misery, let it go.
    It is a matter more of trolls being attracted to their own spoor than anything to do with science, truth or enlightened inquiry.

      Agreed. As far as I see it – Case Close! Stamp!

      Pushing dirt under the corner of a carpet does not make it go away.
      The issue needs to be swept clean, IMHO.

      Ophelia, stop trying to be polite. Tell us exactly how you feel about skeptopaths.

        Ophelia tried tell us exactly how she felt about skeptopaths. It went to permanent moderation in the cloud where it will eventually be dumped as unsuitable for adult consumption. 🙂

          Believe it or not, I found a skeptopath in the homeopathy community. When I tried to point out to her that perhaps homeopathy was in decline partly because the success rate of homeopathy had declined because of the negative impact of the increase in processed foods, she would not accept my experience nor my ideas. I put her on my shun list.

          I believe that skeptopathology is really about being unable to consider a new or unpopular set of observations or ideas. It is not about whether one believes; it is about whether one is willing to consider new ideas and observations, whether one is willing to look through the telescope. This lady believes in a very non-mainstream subject, but she could still not think outside of her own personal box, which was that pharmaceutical companies were the sole cause of the decline of homeopathy.

            Roger, unfortunately IMHO is the majority of thought. Just look at the myriad facets of Christian doctrines convincing many followers they are within the ‘elite ones’ and not wishing to misdirect their eternal comfort zone to ‘new’ understandings.
            This begs the question, if only one, which of the 10’s of thousands of
            denominations is the true church – ergo an elite of none? As you are probably aware, applies to most belief systems, like your assumption I’m a goose. 🙂

            I live with geese and I happen to be one myself. Even my dogs are geese, even if they look like dogs.

            It is astonishing how so many people can have a monopoly on the truth, yet they are all different. The original problem is that humanity is occasionally shown the Truth and we are incapable of understanding it or putting it into words. So it is this limited understanding that gets passed down from generation to generation, getting dissected and changed to fit in with the new limited understanding of the next generation. As Meher Baba said, religion is like a coat that has been patched so many times that none of the original material is still present.

            I love that quote. I’ll use it in our studies.
