Scientists Validate Italian Cold Fusion

A new, and surprisingly favorable, independent scientific report on the Low Energy Nuclear Reactor (LENR, aka cold fusion) device, invented by Italian Andrea Rossi, was released in October. Reverberations in the world of high-energy physics have begun.

Rossi’s tabletop device, dubbed the E-Cat (or energy catalyzer), has—as it challenges the conventional physics paradigm—been the subject of much controversy since its introduction in 2011. Despite endorsements from many experts including Nobel Prize winning physicist Brian Josephson, the E-Cat has been dismissed as a fraud by much of the physics establishment. That view has been reinforced by Rossi’s reluctance, so far, to share important technical details. Nevertheless, seven, well respected European scientists have now issued a report confirming most of Rossi’s claims. According to Phys.org, of the seven scientists who authored the paper, two are from Italy (Giuseppe Levi at Bologna University and Evelyn Foschi of Bologna, Italy) and five are from Sweden (Torbjörn Hartman, Bo Höistad, Roland Pettersson and Lars Tegnér at Uppsala University; and Hanno Essén pharmacy online canada24d at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm). Essén, who submitted the paper, is an associate professor of theoretical physics at the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology and, interestingly, former chairman of the Swedish Skeptics Society.

After observing the device for 32 days, the authors report the E-Cat produced 1.5 megawatt-hours of power, “far more than can be obtained from any known chemical sources in the small reactor volume.” The device, they say, is giving energy “compatible with nuclear transformations.” In other words, the E-Cat appears to be producing some form of atomic fusion, and doing so at a low temperature, something that the world of orthodox science says is impossible.

The report and its favorable finding came as a surprise, not only to the mainstream press but even to the Rossi team which called the report “an unexpected turn of events,” on its website, E-Cat.com.

 

Manifesto for a Post- Materialist Science

In a move which some have compared to Martin Luther’s launching of the protestant reformation by the nailing of his 95 Theses to the Wittenburg church door, a group of respected scientists have issued what they call “Manifesto viagra24onlinepharmacy.com for a Post-Materialist Science.” Published in the July 2015, Explore Magazine, the short cialis24pharmacy online paper questions the standard paradigm of mainstream science, which has become a virtual religion to its followers. Manifesto authors are Mario Beauregard, Ph.D.; Gary E. Schwartz, Ph.D.; Lisa Miller, Ph.D.; Larry Dossey, M.D.; Alexander Moreira-Almeida, M.D., Ph.D.; Marilyn Schlitz, Ph.D.; Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D.; and Charles Tart, Ph.D. Some reporters, such as science writer Dave Pruett of the Huffington Post, are calling the Manifesto a “bombshell.”

“From its inception,” says the abstract, “science has continually evolved because of a fundamental reason: the accumulation of empirical evidence that could not be accommodated by entrenched views. The resulting changes have often been minor, but sometimes they have been titanic, as in the quantum-relativistic revolution of the early decades of the twentieth century.

“Many scientists believe a similar transition is currently required, because the materialistic focus that has dominated science in the modern era cannot account for an ever-increasing body of empirical findings in the domain of consciousness and spirituality.”

Many assumptions made by today’s scientists, the Manifesto points out, are not supported by evidence and are, in fact, contradicted by a great deal of experimental evidence, most notably in quantum physics. The situation is comparable to that which occurred in the sixteenth century when overwhelming evidence forced the Copernican revolution culminating in replacement of the outmoded, Earth-centered, Ptolemaic model of the solar system. A clear parallel can be seen today in the common belief that the human mind is confined to the viagra24pharmacy-canada brain. Rupert Sheldrake has led in proposing that in the same way that a magnetic field reaches beyond a physical magnet, the mind extends well beyond the brain, and he has the experimental evidence to prove it.

While we may not see riots in the streets, as occurred in Luther’s time, a considerable uproar can, nevertheless, be expected to ensue.
