The Essence of UFT431

February 16, 2019″

“The paper makes the point that low energy nuclear reactions (LENR) are due to the newly discovered attractive m force of ECE unified field theory … The paper shows that the masses of the elementary particles are described in terms of m (r). ”

All that you have to do now is to sift through decades of experimental research on nuclear reactions, and explain why this phenomenon never showed up. 

“Many patents have been taken out on LENR by Governments and corporations, so it is no longer controversial. ”

Not many patent applications. Even fewer granted patents. And they all protect a thermite-type reaction; not a nuclear one.

“Pons and Fleischmann were on the right track, and the State of Iowa should reopen a LENR Institute in the University of Utah.”

The university should certainly set up a Garden of Remembrance for those careers which died there. Place-of-Dishonor for Pons of course … soon to be joined by Bannister.

“every ECE paper and book has been consulted as soon as it appears, both in English and Castilian. ”

Those automated web-crawlers are very efficient aren’t they?

“Some such as UFT88 have become well known classics. ”

That is the one which has never been cited – not even by you – isn’t it.

“Nothing more could be asked of any theory”

Well, it would be nice if somebody outside of your gang used it in their own adumbrations … or even recognized its existence in some way.

“Bruhn chose to attack Cartan geometry and failed to make any impact on it. ”

Duh! Of course not; there is nothing wrong with Cartan (he was a mathematician you know). Bruhn pointed out that everything is wrong with your attempted extension of Cartan.

No, but you do, when Carroll disagrees with you.

No, you are animated by personal animosity … against the entire world of science which rejected you, and continues to ignore you. Grammar-School-Boy rote-learning carried you so far, but the related parvenu arrogance clearly alienated everyone.

“He disappeared mysteriously in 2008 after years of illegal harassment.”

Yes, YOUR illegal harassment! Didn’t you use, as a cat’s-paw, the same lawyer who was involved in the Ascension Securities (‘water-powered vehicles’) affair?

Have you never seen those attempted hack-written sequels of famous books? They are always horrible. Does pointing that out constitute criticism of the original work? Of course not; are you insane?!

But then, it is already worthless given that you used an earlier version to explain the operation of the MEG perpetual-motion gadget.

“LENR is wholly new”

No it’s not! It is just re-packaged cold-fusion, and that is some 30 years old. Moreover, genuine physicists lost interest in it almost immediately. 

“and does not produce gamma rays or any harmful by product.”

or neutrons (otherwise Pons and Fleischman would not have lived to tell the tall tale) … or any net energy.

No Problem: No Publication

My Views on Publication

February 12, 2019″

“I think that it is important to publish all your thoughts in a disciplined way and let the colleagues and public decide whether or not they want to read them, both in science and poetry. ”

But you do not publish, in any commonly accepted sense of the term, do you. Posting items on your own website is no better than posting notes on ones own kitchen ‘to do’ notice-board. That is why you constantly have to fiddle with the supposed ‘readings’. If people really read your drivel, they would presumably want to quote it at some point … but they never do. Moreover, vanity-publishing is the surest indicator of  ‘a loser at work’. So the public has clearly spoken: you and your ‘ideas’ are not wanted.  

“To attempt to censure or restrict high quality publication is an infringement on the freedom of an individual.”

There is clearly no need to censure that which nobody finds to be of interest anyway. Have you not noticed the central irony: that you complain about the only group that even bothers to mention your output; albeit negatively.  It is almost as if we are warning readers not to swim in a cesspool; who would want to anyway?

“only the material worth remembering is read in any depth, the rest is instantly forgotten. ”

You said it!

“… the atomic bomb. ”

Real physicists would lay the ‘blame’ for that at the door of an Austrian woman, not your couple.

“The many attempts to stop me publishing have all failed,”

To the outsider, it merely looks as if you cannot get into any journals at all any more: certainly not the best ones, not even into second-rate Physica, not even into tenth-rate Progress in Physics and not even into nth-rate vixra.  You could not even keep your own journal afloat! 

“I dislike public houses because one is always likely to run into an abusive drunk swaying down the street. ”

Does that mean that you will not be attending the reunion in Cardiff next month? If you do, behave yourself: you never know who might be listening.

“Walton would count the number of steps and trace the culprit.”

Nowadays he would be afraid of getting a bad score on ‘rate-my-teacher’ or of getting sued for intimidation or for not providing sufficiently entertaining and value-for-money talks.  

For the record, with regard to the defects of the Internet, we find pseudoscience to be more offensive than hard-core pornography.

It is nice of Ron to do everything that he can to assist us in  our ambition to get his name taken off the list of Civil List pensioner scientists. He has already implicated HM QE2 in a perpetual motion scam by putting the Treasury address on his ‘explanation’ of the Johnson magnetic motor. And now here he is, going full-henchman on another dodgy scheme.  If only Ron was a better talker; he could have made a fortune out of theory alone, without having to get involved with messy chemicals. Check out Randall Mills, Ron, he persuaded US utility companies to throw $9,000,000 at him on the basis of mere unfounded theory.

Mr Richard’s Link to Antigravity

February 10, 2019

Yes, shock, horror! The link is this: for many years, Mr Richard campaigned to have the ‘Red Lady of Paviland’ (in fact a man) remains returned to Wales. Now, the Red Lady featured in the creationist ramblings of a friend of Eric Laithwaite. The former loony masqueraded as a ‘patents expert’ and, in that capacity, was asked to prepare a report on gyroscopes for a NATO sub-committee. As part of the report, he gathered together several loony patent applications for ‘reactionless propulsion’ (aka antigravity) machines. He concluded that they were feasible. Consequently there exists a NATO-backed publication which states that spinning-top antigravity is possible … in the opinion of a creationist. That report has brought aid and comfort to the lunatic fringe for decades, and explains how stupid ideas simmer in the public unconscious and encourage crackpots like Ron. Note: the above tenuous link has simply been an exercise in ‘stream-of-consciousness’ thinking. Made you look, though, didn’t it Ron!

Trump-Style Lies

No interest in Fruitcake

February 10, 2019″

“From www.semrush.com and www.statshow.com ”

Those services also show that your scientometrics are concocted, as their figures are nowhere as high as the ones which you drool over.  Some years ago, before Alexa changed its sampling criteria, our site sometimes ranked above yours.  

“it is easy for anyone to see that fruitcake generates instant revulsion all over the world because there is no interest in it. ”

We allow feedback, and only rarely receive negative comments. Why don’t you allow feedback: then we shall see who generates revulsion! The answer is already obvious: look at our poll results. Nobody likes you. Why can your ‘millions of followers’ and ‘ECe schools of thought’ not skew the results the other way? That they do not exist, is the Occam’s Razor explanation. 

“After nineteen years”

A lie worthy of Trump. And as with Trump, it teeters between two unpleasant possibilities: either the speaker is terminally stupid, or he is irremediably dishonest.  

“of ugly abuse the site is shunned worldwide. ”

It is possible that the lunatic fringe does not like it, but pointing out that perpetual-motion and spinning-wheel antigravity are impossible serves a valuable educational purpose. Yes, the vacuum is a seething volume of energy … but one cannot extract it. 

“It was lunched on March 3rd 2000”

Oh, we shall ‘dine out’ on that lying typo!

“and has viciously attacked scientists and general public alike. ”

We have criticized pseudo-scientists with more leniency than they deserve. Perhaps you will learn what ‘vicious’ really looks like when that book appears. We have nothing against ‘the general public’ apart from its appallingly bad understanding of science.    

“Fruitcake generates about one or two views a month according to semrush. ”

We have a hit-counter (just above the polls) which clearly gives the lie to you … and semrush. Why do you not have a hit-counter?

“It has no indexed pages”

What would be the point, when the main subject-matter is one notorious crackpot and there is also a very useful search option. You really are scraping the barrel these days aren’t you?

” indicating that it may have been banned in the past, or suffered a penalty.”

Oh look, a meaningless Trumpian insinuation to go with the Trumpian lies. We really have got you on the run, haven’t we?

“The owners have been afraid to reveal themselves for nineteen years. ”

Nutters are very dangerous. Not necessarily your ineffectual troupe of clowns, but the followers of your hero, Searl. In any case, reputable academics cannot be seen to be linked to the likes of you, even in an adversarial capacity.  

“The owners are grossly incompetent scientifically and cannot deal with a scientific equation. ”

During the past ‘nineteen years’, our members have published dozens of books and scientific papers. And those were real publications: not self-published on a website or vanity-published. Of course, the topics were rather mundane by journalistic standards: only the general public thinks that every scientist is forever formulating grand new theories. That of course is precisely why pseudoscientists like you go down that route. 

“In the meantime combined sites www.aias.us and www.upitec.org ”

What do you mean: ‘combined’? You know very well that upitec is a mirror-site and … oh dear … it also shows up badly on semrush as, indeed, does et3m.net. 

“all the countries and territories of the world”

We receive hits from every country in the world; what of it?

“The South Wales Commissioner again indicated yesterday”

We would love to see that ‘indication’. Why don’t you post it on your blog?

“following another thinly veiled death threat.”

Oh, was that one of our jokey comments which, we carefully pointed out, might well be taken –  to be a death threat  – by a terminally stupid and inveterate liar.

It seems counter-productive to warn you, but you do realize don’t you that all of your blatant lies and outlandish statements will end up by being quoted in a book. Don’t you think that the local Squire, Lord and only current Civil List Scientist should act with a little more decorum.

And like a sucker visiting a ‘psychic’, you are helpfully adding your own details to vague ‘Barnum’ statements. Why are you prattling about dubious nuclear reactions when the only granted patent which Rossi holds is clearly for a form of thermite-based reaction.

Oh, you will love that forthcoming book: you are not the only crackpot to be outed. Oppenheimer only attempted murder; one well-known philosopher was an actual murderer! Philosophize that away!

Oh Ron, even given your meagre knowledge of scientific matters, it must occur to you that such frequent replacement hints at a chemical rather than a nuclear energy source. Now add to that the fact that the only granted Rossi patent involved extensive written exchanges between him and the patent office and that those exchanges revolved exclusively around the topic of thermite reactions and whether the concept of keeping them going by using intermittent electrical heating was sufficiently novel. 

Magnetic Morons

Source of Hong Kong Interest

February 8, 2019″

“Google “Hong Kong LENR” to find that the interest is probably from Hong Kong Polytechnic University, which has developed a new type of graphene battery”

How interesting. One of our number has recently written a book about graphene-type materials. Strangely enough, he found no related mention of LENR or ECe or other C**P in the scientific literature. 

“Doug Lindstrom, AIAS Director, recently made a trip to China, in which there is already interest in LENR and pulsed LENR, the speciality of Magnetic Miles in Florida.”

No, Ron, the specialty of Magnetic Miles is the ludicrous idea of replacing the cylinder-head and spark-plugs of internal combustion engines with permanent magnets and electromagnets, respectively. Which is convenient, as one of that gang runs a repair garage. They are doing so in order to ‘save the planet’ from global-warming; which does not exist according to you. They of course gloss over over the question of where the electrical energy is going to come from. Or do they? The most recent patent (to which Lindy has put his name) claims that bouncing a permanent magnet by using an electromagnet in fact generates net energy. One would think that Lindy would mention your nonsense-theory in that regard: i.e. energy from nowhere. But no, he puts his trust in ‘magnon waves’, permeating the atmosphere. How do they fit into your fantasy, Ron? By the way, LENR is mentioned in the patent only to the extent that he says that the output of their perpetual-motion machine could keep LENR reactions going. That’s a new twist. It is obvious that Lindy was brought in to provide ‘scientific respectability’. But he doesn’t, does he? In the larger scheme of things it makes the institutions who awarded him degrees, and the organizations which employed him, look like complete idiots.

Masses of the Elementary Particles and LENR

February 7, 2019″

“The energy absorbed from m space has been transformed into both heat and light. This is a good working hypothesis which can be pursued.”

Your musing seems to be somewhat off-target, Ron, given that the only granted patent specification, together with other written exchanges which we have seen between the Patent Office and Rossi, make it clear that the operating principle is a thermite reaction which can be controlled (by a heating-element and feedback controller) so as to occur over an extended time-period instead of ‘going off like a bomb’ as in the case of the traditional incendiary mixture. So here is the puzzle, Ron, why are you striving to prove that the energy is coming from nowhere (aka spacetime) rather than from a chemical reaction of a type which was first patented over 100 years ago? To be pedantic, however, we have to note that the heat generated in chemical reactions is, in fact, nuclear in origin: it arises from the binding energy of the atomic species. So, you are sort of right … but for the wrong reason. Is Rossi really selling thermite in the guise of cold-fusion? That would be a trifle dishonest, wouldn’t it?

We are sure that your subjects could throw up a lot of objections with regard to an untested technology which may involve pressure-vessels, possibly explosive mixtures and the generation of explosive gases.

Note 431(1) : Masses of the Elementary Particles and LENR

February 6, 2019″

“It was discovered in the University of Utah as is well known. ”

You should not remind everyone that that University has a history of employing crackpots,  even before the Dismal Scientist. Cold Fusion began with steaming vats, but ended up at the limits of experimental detection: a beautiful example of one of Langmuir’s criteria for defining a pseudoscience. Physicists were immediately suspicious simply because the claimants were not dead from neutron irradiation. Somebody died later, due to the explosion of a reaction vessel. How sad that is … to die in the pursuit of a nonsense idea cum scam. And then it was re-packaged as LENR, shorn of neutron radiation and somehow claimed to be a nuclear reaction which does not produce nuclear waste.

“It is blazingly obvious, to coin an awful pun, that the heat is there. ”

Rossi says that one component is lithium aluminium hydride. Any organic chemist should be familiar with its properties. It reacts strongly with water to produce hydrogen. It can also be used as a storage medium for huge amounts of additional hydrogen. This recalls some older technology. One of us can remember when bicycle-lamps were acetylene-fed. The gas was produced by dripping water onto calcium carbide. There exists a thousand-year old manuscript which describes how soldiers in the field would heat their food by mixing water with sodium hydroxide: a method still used nowadays. In brief, there is a multitude of tricks for producing heat. The single granted patent also mentions the use of an external power supply to trigger a catalyst, thus hinting at a thermite-type reaction. Is that external supply even turned off afterwards? It always amazes us that, throughout the history of perpetual motion, supposedly intelligent people (yes, we mean you Hanno Essen) could not see that they were being scammed. To paraphrase a famous line, “what a gentleman in possession of a fortune desires is … a list of countries having no extradition treaty”.

When I mentioned the criminal damage to my car to the Tribunal, Richard, Cynlais Evans, and others bowed their heads and said nothing. The Tribunal asked for more details of this vicious criminal offence, on which there is no statute of limitations. I refused to be influenced by this crude intimidation. “

Internet Safety Day

February 5, 2019

Today is internet safety day, especially for the protection of vulnerable and sensitive people from vicious, sometime murderous, abusers such as hate bloggers. It is clear that law enforcement is being overwhelmed by inadequate laws,”

And to think that we were under the impression that it was Safer Internet Day. The main aim seems to be to dissuade the kiddies from attacking each other online. But unprincipled bloggers are certainly a problem, especially the ones who promulgate silly scientific theories and prattle about perpetual motion and flying spinning-tops. Just imagine the awful effect that such monsters have upon the education of young people. 

You Heard It Here First

February 5, 2019

Bertrand Russell, the Welsh[sic] philosopher, said that the best way of dealing with crackpots is to get them arguing with each other. He was mistaken, of course, just as his lifetime’s work on the logical foundations of mathematics was wrecked ‘overnight’ by Goedel. As we have pointed out many times, crackpots dare not argue among themselves.  On the other hand, one can certainly distract them with tempting snippets. The Herouni story is not going anywhere of course; it has been sitting around for well over a decade, and nobody cares what an Armenian nobody thinks anyway. But get this, a (formerly) respected professor of astronomy at Harvard* has gone bonkers and is prattling about an alien spaceship. Hey Ron, you and your fellow nutters should look into that. After all, it may be propelled by LENR-powered spinning-tops. 

* Sounds good, but our regular readers will recall that there exists a documentary which shows that students in the graduation-line for physics degrees at Harvard a) did not know why it is hotter in Summer (in the Northern hemisphere) and b) given a bulb, battery and piece of wire struggled to make the bulb light. And who can forget the Professor of Psychiatry[sic] at Harvard who was a leading ufologist. He was run down and killed while walking through London. It is obvious that little-green-men are not averse to using more conventional vehicles in order to silence witnesses.  They claimed that it was an ‘IT manager’. Yeah, right, not an ‘ET manager’ then.

The Herouni Antenna – The Death of the Big Bang!

February 3, 2019

I am glad that they finally got this idea out of the way.”

We cannot understand why Robitaille found it so difficult to locate the amazing result. We found it in seconds,

73

Still, pretended obscurity always makes everything seem more mysterious doesn’t it? Despite being over a decade old, it has never been cited. Souren Parisovich (‘Paris’) Herouni has not been too lucky with his antennae. He made three patent applications in 1995, none were granted and all lapsed some 18 years ago. The other professor, an …ugh … electrical engineer, runs an adult-education organization (you know, the sort that legitimizes auto-didacts like Viv Pope). She is assisted in this by one Nana Herouni … so that’s cosy. By the way, the Herounis are also into amateurish* ‘ancient civilizations’ investigations;

probably something to do with being so close to Mount Ararat (where the fossils are found two-by-two? LOL). They have been excited to find ancient swastikas in Scotland. The only real mystery here is why Robitaille’s clothes don’t fit. Has he lost weight? Cachexia?

* Note the reference to Gerald Hawkins, the American who had loony ideas concerning Stonehenge. One can judge his calibre by the fact that, when crop-circles appeared, he decided that they were ‘messages’. He then ‘decoded’ them, decided that they were actually music, and played it on his guitar. Yep, he made Hoyle look almost normal.

Open Letter to Chair of Mawr Community Council

February 1, 2019″

“Diolch yn fawr, mae’r lleuad yn llawn. Thank you very much, the moon is full, and a certain personage may be activated by excess gravity. ”

Are you suggesting that there is a connection between Moon phases and terrestrial gravitational acceleration? Is it some occult reference to an old-wives-tale tidal effect? You usually avoid tidal phenomena because you know that your theory cannot handle them. Whatever: everybody is weighed down by gravity, some are brought down by hilarious gravitas.

“As Squire or Armiger I do not take part in politics, ”

Noted for future reference.

“At present prices are wildly inflated and they cannot afford a deposit on a mortgage. ”

That is a country-wide problem; it is not a specifically local problem. 

“I am against wind turbines”

You are also a global-warming denier, which makes you one of the bad guys these days. We note that Co-President Sewage did not sign the same petition; that would not have pleased his employers, as he is charged by them with protecting the environment. One notable who did sign the petition was Jeremy Corbyn’s brother; you know, the pseudoscientist who used to predict the weather using Sun-spots.  

“The general public is exempt from any electoral purdah law,”

But you do not consider yourself to be a member of the general public! The spirit of the law is obviously to protect candidates from the public opinions of influential personages. Who could be more influential than the local Squire and Lord of Gower? 

“I would also like to mention that my car has been badly damaged … The police failed to apprehend the criminal, who is still at large,”

Nil desperandum; after all, they caught the person who set fire to a police car … parked outside a local police station.

 

Another Random Visit!

UFT88 Consulted again at Berkeley

February 1, 2019

UFT88 has been consulted again at University of California Berkeley where there is an ECE School which regularly consults combined sites www.aias.us and www.upitec.org. This consultation means that there is a well established school of thought that rejects Einsteinian general relativity. ”

There is no ‘school’ of course. Nobody cites the UFT88 rubbish. Moreover, there is no significant mention of you anywhere in the Berkeley files. If you knew anything about probability theory, Ron, you would know that it is surprisingly likely that two or three random visits could occur at about the same time; you know, like buses arriving in threes. You could then claim that they had ‘held a conference’. However, you would have to be mad, stupid and/or completely lacking in intellectual integrity to try that … Ooops! 

The Co-President is a Klutz

Comment by Co President

February 1, 2019

Thanks to the Co President. With seven hundred papers and books the number of permutations and combinations of ideas is essentially infinite,”

Well, the number of combinations might be very large, but nowhere near infinite. However, we cannot fathom why the order in which the nonsense was selected would make a difference. But then, we cannot understand why the muggles speak of ‘combination locks’ when they are clearly permutation locks. Co-President Klutz must have had an awful thesis supervisor.

… and money. Did you really spend $35 on that? The wording is a little ambiguous, but does it not protect the material, written up until that date, as a completed work? That would mean that every new post is unprotected until you pay another fee. And quite apart from that, of course, you cannot get around the ‘fair use’ clause; especially in the case of drivel which so richly deserves criticism.

“More Material for Nominators

January 30, 2019

“This can be used for nominations in future. ”

You already have one highly undeserved award. Isn’t that enough?

“The world record that gives me most pleasure is the number of prestigious Fellowships won in intense and clean open competition”

How can you take pleasure in that? It looks only as if a record number of establishments did not want you permanently!

“The BBC Hall of Fame Group which I led at the Edward Davies Chemical Laboratories in Aberystwyth, also won a team world record of twenty Fellowships (Gareth Evans, Mauro Ferrario and myself). ”

To what end? Only one of you managed to carve out any sort of academic career in chemistry: one becoming a crackpot fake physicist and another becoming a pencil-pusher in a local-government sinecure.
