On the Electromagnetic Electron (E-Cat “The New Fire” Article)

Vessela Nikolova on her website E-Cat “The New Fire” has an interesting article in which she and physicist and science journalist Mario Menichella discuss ideas from two preprint articles by F. Celani, A. Tommaso and G. Vassallo with these ruthors

1. “Maxwell’s Equations and Occam’s Razor” https://www.researchgate.net/publication/320274378_Maxwell%27s_Equations_and_Occam%27s_Razor

2. “The Electron and Occam’s Razor” https://www.researchgate.net/publication/320274514_The_Electron_and_Occam%27s_Razor

The main point made by these authors is that instead of considering the electron to be a particle, which is the commonly held concept accepted by classical physics, they propose a model of “a current ring generated by a massless charge that rotates at speed of light along a circumference whose length is equal to the Compton wavelength of the electron”

The interview covers many details of their theory, including how it could be compatible with the work of Holmlid, Iwamura, Mills and Rossi/Gullstrom.

  • A McCulloch’s article on cold fusion (synopsis on his blog 1, 2) attempts to explain the cold fusion by heating of atoms within narrow (<50 nm) metal cavities by quantum vacuum. This would give the atoms sufficient energy for overcomming the Coulomb barrier.
    The cold fusion is probably the result of rare synergy of multiple effects (electron screening, hydridation of protons, etc..). Of these the effect of Cassimir forces/energy in nanocracks would be probably rather low. In addition, many cold fusion reactions runs without apparent cracks, for example at the surface of molten lithium. In my opinion the main contribution of nanocracks to cold fusion is, it forces to collide atoms along single line, which attenuates their collisions by Astroblaster effect. Their atoms are bound to axis of dislocation by mutual stress, so that they behave like cooler ones in radial direction and hotter ones in axial direction. Which would explain, why the long narrow dislocations within nickel nanowhiskers (Piantelli) have so strong catalyzing effects to cold fusion. The better collinearity and formation of boson condensate could also explain the observation ofneutrons within palladium hydrides at low temperatures (Ed Storm at all). Fleischmann already observed that quenched (spontaneously heated) samples of palladium lose their catalytic activity fast. The mechanical deform (elongation) of samples is also used for increase of yield in ENEA Labs experiments.
    But the effects of quantum vacuum within metal cavities shouldn’t be neglected. In dense aether model the cavities gets shielded from virtual photons, so that scalar wave component of vacuum gets enhanced there (analogy of enforcement of tsunamies between islands). These fields would manifest like magnetic fluctuations, which would heat up and accelerate charged particles. I just don’t think, that this heating effect would be as high as predicted by MiHSc/QI theory above. Another effect could be, these fields weaken the strength of physical interactions, in particular Randell Mills relies on this effect, when he predicts, that narrow cavities at the surface of Raney nickel would enforce subquantum states within hydrogen by weakening the Coulomb barrier. Again, it seems that collinear arrangement of atoms would enforce the effect, so that the strings of dense Rydberg hydrogen atoms can be formed (Leif Holmlid at all).
    So that the above study may become an important piece of cold fusion puzzle, although I wouldn’t expect, its effect will be so dominant as its author expects. But the heating effects of quantum vacuum should be measurable and testable independently of cold fusion. But we shouldn’t forget that adsorption of atoms to physical surface (i.e. decreasing their momentum in one direction) would automatically enhance their momentum in remaining direction due to uncertainty principle. On this mechanism many example of surface catalysis are based and it’s merely classical effect, which should be subtracted from experimental results.

    • Brownian Motion of Graphene: Potential Source of Limitless Energy at Room Temperature couldn’t we also intepret it also like effect of heating graphene layers by  Cassimir vacuum?

      The resulting vibrations would be strong enough to generate electricity. Again, the uncertainty principle by itself (constraining the object within wiggling vacuum in one direction forces it to wiggle more in remaining directions) is able to explain this effect. McCulloch should atempt to substract the classical quantum mechanics effect from nonclassical part of prediction in his theory. Because QI is supposed to be QM compliant, the predictions of MiHSc/QI theory shouldn’t differ from naive prediction based on uncertainty principle, in accordance to which the object constrained in motion by surface would also heat itself – but only in direction perpendicular to surface of cavity. Whereas the MiHSc/QI claims the multidirectional effect..
