In any statistical process, if a restraint can be broken, given enough time, energy and a particular set of circumstances, there will be outliers that will meet the conditions for an event to occur. Like a thief trying to steal gold from a bank - sometimes the laundry bag is in the right place, other times a tree falls onto the perimeter wall - or - he gets handed the tools to tunnel through to the booty.
LENR experiments are about encouraging specially prepared transition metal structures to let Hydrogen or Deuterium come inside, this is called condensed matter. But people in a house does not a party make. There needs to be some energy to get it going and occasionally when the house is pumping and the guests are dancing, participants get together. Sometimes there needs to be a catalyst for things to really happen, like the right banging tune or the right cocktail to be drunk.
Even then things can move pretty slowly, sometimes it is not until the stripper, gatecrasher or some other unexpected entrant comes into play that it all kicks off... hopefully the police don't come and put a downer on things.
The annals of LENR are peppered with tales of loaded active material being jump started into life by the application of some transient influence. Essentially, one needs to knock whatever stability remains in the excited condensed matter in such a way that their is a far greater chance of something desirable happening.
In this mini project, we want anyone and everyone to scour the literature for and their own ingenuity and insight for ideas and equipment design that might allow activation and acceleration of the LENR process.
