We thank you immensely for taking part in the debate over the past several days on our suggested strategic thinking for the imminent full-scale fundraising through KickStarter.
We hope that the revised goals presented below are something everyone can agree with, please speak up if you think we can do better.
The purpose of this blog entry is to show the suggested introductory text that will be on the KickStarter. We need you to take your critical eye to it and suggest things we should add, delete or phrase better. If there are any budding wordsmiths out there that feel they can make bits clearer, please help if you can but we only have days to finalise this.
Oooo and if you are interested in being in the draw for the powder cell, there are not many days left to make a donation.
Thanks in advance.
The goal of this project is to show the world there is a safe, cheap way to harness energy from the atom without harmful emissions or residue.
It will achieve this for £50,000 by successfully concluding our replications of a leading scientists recent experiments, publishing them Live at QuantumHeat.org.
Stretch Goal 1: If we can raise £150,000, we will then produce a minimum of 3 complete set-ups and send them to internationally respected competent institutions. When there, they will run a live web connected experiment, over a few weeks, that anyone can follow, analyse and be confident in. Subsequently, the institutions will be free to extend the experiment in any way they choose. The more money we raise, the more experiments we can distribute and the better we can publicise them.
Stretch Goal 2: If we can raise over £350,000 we will ship out and support a minimum of 10 experiments and use any spare funds to start work on complete open source energy generators and associated control and data logging software and hardware.
So why should I care?
Safe abundant energy will allow us to turn the deserts green, stop destruction of forests, provide water where it is lacking, 24/367 vertical farming of all climates crops within cities, long distance guilt free travel, end of the acceleration of climate change, the list is endless. Most importantly, it gives our children and the flora and fauna of our home a future.
So what is the experiment?
An experiment to demonstrate the releasing of energy from the mass of hydrogen by use of a special nano material under thermal and other changes.
It is a relatively simple piece of precision engineering combined with active elements designed to show power excess higher than any known chemical process could explain. It is connected to the internet in independent locations and published live so that data can not be cherry picked or controlled by a vested interest and is free to be analysed and challenged by anyone. The exact same experiments will be run first and afterwards the participating organisations will be free take the science wherever the data and their skillset leads them.
The purpose is to provide incontrovertible evidence of the effect so that the world then has a real choice as to how to invests its time and effort moving forward.
To produce the multiple replications, ship media teams, do legal, build a better site, handle the aftermath will all take significant funds and we would love it if you could help.
Tell me more!
It seams that extremely small amounts of common safe input material can result in vast amounts of excess heat by weight and minute amounts of harmless contained ash. That is the power of E = (MC^2) X (Open Minds)
Because it does the useful heating bit that fire does much better and avoids the nasty emissions, it is definitely an upgrade, so we call it the New Fire. We believe it is the most important thing man has ever invented. So what is the New Fire?
The New Fire involves a selection of safe elements interacting in such a way that they can release energy from themselves as they change to other harmless elements.
Whilst we are open and independent, an amazing scientist called Professor Francesco Celani, has been working very closely with us, this affable guy was invited early last year to CERN to represent the state of the art for the whole community of researchers in this field. His presentation can be read here:
Since this presentation, Toyota has replicated Mitsubishi Industrial's experiment. This is independent proof from top Japanese industry that you can turn Tungsten into Platinum without needing a tame supernovae. There is also good evidence to suggest that mercury is transmuting in common fluorescent lightbulbs. This means that there is much more to learn about the structure of matter and how it can be made to interact - but then we know that you always knew that humans didn't know everything already!
Celani himself made great strides since giving that presentation and for the first time, showed an experiment publicly that he claimed produced significant excess heat in both National Instruments Week in Texas where NI showcased their support for Celani as they did for the emerging field in general. He then re-ran the experiment with positive results a few days later at ICCF-17 in Daejeon, South Korea.
It was at ICCF-17 that the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project (MFMP) at QuantumHeat.org was born and where, along with many others, Celani encouraged us to take this project Social. Check out our channel for some of the people that spurred us on.
The primary goal of the MFMP has always been stated here as:
Show to the world there is a new practical primary energy source we call the New Fire
There were several candidate experimental routes and we explored several but in the end we where struck by the openness of Celani and his willingness to work with us. The beauty of the Celani cell as presented was that it was simply driven by thermal, pressure and power changes and had a reportedly significant excess heat (revealing an incredible underlying energy density), this means that if it did work as claimed, it would make it easy to extend the experiment in many ways. Additionally, the cell was attractive and it could be clearly seen by the observer that there was no trickery, the active component and cell specifics were not hidden in any way. We therefore set about the Celani replication plan.
Before we could really ask anyone else to get involved, we had to be sure for ourselves that the effect was real. So having obtained assurances Celani would supply the active wire to us, we set out to build replicas of the Celani cell and to go through a process of meticulous LIVE testing in the full glare and critique of the scientific community. Here is the blog of the on-going work.
This work has involved many thousands of hours of work from the facilitators and their own private company resources and cash. In addition very generous donations were made on the site which have made a real difference to our work. Special thanks goes Paul Hunt who has fronted a good chunk of the engineering costs, here is an early video of his operation.
At around the same time ST Microelectronics (huge multi-national electronics firm) reported that they had successfully shown significant excess heat with Celani supplied wires.
This fact, Nasa's comments at the end of the year (8mins in), and our own research has given us the confidence to ask you all to help us light the New Fire. We have not stopped experimenting, indeed in the next few weeks there will be between 2 and 4 cells running and publishing live on our site and we encourage you to look at the data and suggest ways we can improve the cells that are sent out after this Kickstarter. In recent weeks we have had some real heavy weights like Dr Edmond Storms in this space join the other leading scientists that are advising us. In early April, the Naval Research Laboratories will be holding a colloquium, why not pop along and ask questions!
How is the New Fire different from LENR?
The New Fire is a subset of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). Specifically, the New Fire is those LENR reactions that produce excess thermal heat from safe and abundant source elements, creates no emissions during the reaction and leaves no long term harmful waste.
Live Open Science
During the course of carrying out our work, we believe we have stumbled upon a new way of pursuing science. Rather than designing and using secret apparatus behind closed doors in secret locations and running experiments first, collecting the data, selecting data, treating the data, publishing reports to closed groups and then, later, publishing to the public. We are publishing our apparatus designs, experiment procedure to the web and LIVE publishing our experiment data RAW as it is generated and analysis tools to the web for anyone to pick holes in and analyse. It has meant that we have benefitted from a huge number of active participants to the MFMP and we are expanding this type of collaboration into many related areas of the project and its support.
We are calling this Live Open Science (LOS) it is a process everyone can be a part of - we believe their are millions of minds out there that can make a real difference to science - intuition and reasoned direction comes to us all. We hope that this kickstarter means that our vision of live science for the people and by the people can come to other projects soon. One of our collaborators put this piece together to summarise his feelings for the project.
Whilst it was necessary for us to do the internal replications. We do not feel it is sufficient for the world to either know or believe that there is a real alternative for humanities future. We have been advised by scientists that we need to do at least 3 exact successful replications at respected independent locations for it to be accepted. We need a minimum net of £105,000 to achieve that, but we would like to raise more and get 5 or more out there, maybe as many as 10 would be awesome and then any extra money could go to full on publicity of the Live experiments - say through media blitzes and social web promotion. If we could get cells into top institutions in US, EU, Japan, India, China, South Korea for starters that would be awesome - why? Look here!
The Mayan's were Right, the old world ended in 2012, the world of the New Fire is here and according to Nasa, it may enable us to leave the planet.
But my science professor says different...
Well, say, that you appreciate his opinion but could he go and study QuantumHeat.org, this site and this paper from 2007 (before much of the recent research) and come back with justifications for his stance.
Some say that the only way to achieve something is to copy the way the rest of the universe does it naturally. That is plain bonkers, by using what is there in the universe and engaging the brain, humans have created the microwave oven for instance that makes power specifically shake water molecules in a tuned cavity to heat food.
Many of the human races greatest advancements come from learning how we can make novel stuff that will react in a specific way when energy of one form or another is applied and the basis for the New Fire is no different.
- The New Fire is real and has the potential to profoundly change humanity
- Multiple international internet based live replications of an experiment demonstrating this will Kickstart public and private investment into this space
- Much of the world issues will be mitigated
- It will allow us to ultimately leave this rock
- More information and many additional links available here
This work is dedicated to the great British electrochemist Pr. Martin Fleischmann
