i find this subject interesting... i have done a simple experiment back in 2006 where i had two SS 304 plates like 10cm x 20cmx 4mm connected thru a full wave bridge rectifier and 220v milan italy power source..
the result was that with 3 amps within 15 minutes 1 liter of water turned into vapor... the reservoir was acryilic and there was around 4 liters inside...
so if you make the calculation its impossible to make so much vapor with so low current..
my theory is that i had bad metters at the time...
but if they were good is possible that the extra energy come from the vibration of the molecules
i believe the vibration is what can indeed approximate the atoms in a palladium lattice to induce fusion... vibration is heat too!
In a sense you would vote on #2 as that involves organized phonon vibration in an atomic lattice right?
I am at home now and I will start with some deep stuff for you guys to digest on. Both of you, Matt and Ben, should be aware of this information presented. We will start with a lecture Tesla gave — Experiments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency —
Lecture delivered before the I.E.E., London, February, 1892.http://www.pbs.org/tesla/res/res_art05.html
Its important to remember that Voltage cannot exist without Current, and both do not occur without space (Resistance/Impedance) Keep that in mind as a matter of truth nature always expresses too us.
So we must first examine our perception of the electron and its interaction with planks constant (smallest quanta of energy perceived from invisibility or black body observations). This might get pretty heavy, but bare with me as this is not my thoughts alone, and is not written in certainty. Rather, it is the fringe of what we currently understand and needs our cooperation to shed light on.
So here is where we get into some scientific intensity about the nature of subatomic wave/particle/fields. In this discussion I will use the term field as it encompasses both wave and particle duality. Buckle your seat belts to take a hypothetical trip into the mind of some wacky dude never formally trained into physics. ;)
If we look at the 3 dimensional object of energy expressing itself, it takes on many shapes relative to a perspective of field interaction. Like a sphere if its constant, a torus if pulsed, a laser/cylinder/spiral/cone if foculized directionally with atomic field interactions and wave guide ect. So when charged particle (i.e.matter) is free to be in its constant state only effected by one order of interface at its equilibrium state of influence (sphere at at its vibrational and angular constant) it is much like like the Pilot wave theory
Keep in mind this does essentially support an Aether/Ether like concept. Weather you wish to perceive its state static or continuous in nature (Vibration and angular momentum again referenced) above or below our current sensory understanding is entirely up to you. Perhaps they are two separate ends of a very large field we are on the verge of fathoming?
So field interaction expresses patterns according to order of magnitude (angular momentum interacting with organized vibrational modes) that seem to be facilitated by the 4th dimensional state of time( Frequency or Vibration). This would be the 4th dimensional variable that is so difficult to equate in mathematical terms for most people (Including myself). This is where the Jewel of Euler's perturbation formula comes into play as Feymen once stated. An equation that expresses layers of infinity into resting mass as the frequency of motion increases, beyond our sensory perception. This is why I will do what I can to express these observations of quantum mechanics into English, to the best of my abilities anyways. ;)
I will avoid any higher orders of dimensional reality as we have no full understanding on 4D as time is relative to the C (C=speed of light) Which is proven not a constant when passing through certain energetic structures (crystals of various symmetries or quasi-symmetries). This may all read very "Metaphysical" but I assure it is not as it is a huge topic in data storage which should need no citation. But I will give some citation anyways ;)
This is a lot like Hetrodyning frequencies or laser cooling which I am sure both of you gentlemen (Ben and Matt) know a lot about.
I should also add all theoretical physicists are is metaphysical practitioners with a veil of pedigreed language. One must take the time to understand the language to join the club.
Its important to understand the meaning of the word abstractions in this wiki link.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experimental_physics
From my view, it is quite beautiful actually. Metaphysics and Theoretical physics are the Volts and Amps where as Experimental Physics is the resistance according to the structure of our universe. That is putting it into a electrical engineering analogy. Of course, I digress into a positive or negative feed back loop of your choosing. ;)
So back to the meat and potatoes of this long written post.
I have experimented with the Hairpin circuit a lot and from my experience there is a piece missing from what is taught in mainstream science. An energy that is very difficult to measure in both vibration force, and angular momentum. Perhaps it can be measured in its transition into something more recognizable like the spectrum of light? This piece of mystery seems to involve hitting a resonance in pinnacle node fashion, or in other words, creating a standing wave node at its peak.
As a self proclaimed scientist the only variable I can think to try to exclude is a pathway of mains wire in the house. So going to a completely empty environment would be a very good step into understanding.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAwF9lQNY0c
Hairpin Circuit altering frequency and vibration of a gas I still have no solid explanation for. Only think I can think of is some type of gaseous contamination.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hof6PuFlBXc
My first experiment into LENR without knowing it and not having proper equipment to deal with the energies involved. This is of great interest to what I am attempting to convey in a resting state of potentiality and applying a energy that unlocks the atomic energies outlined in classic electrodynamics of Einstein's time.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whNcANoZHjg
Its important to keep an open mind where nature speaks truths, and men speak there egos. If someone feels the need to put there name on something, chances are there motives are for personal gains rather than collective progressive gains. Again, I digress back to metaphysics and the ideas of spirituality. My apologizes for those hard core factualists who don't appreciate philosophical ideology of knowledgeable uncertainties. <-- This makes me sound smart lol. Basically, there are some people who don't accept the fact we don't know everything, and adopt it as a belief structure to defend. I am not trying to attack, I just want to shed light on experimental observations which I feel are still very incomplete.
I do honestly think that we can technically and practical design abundant energy systems. I had a prolific dream of a multi-potential generator that I will bring to light with time. It is incredibly important to me to make it practical so anybody can do it. My motive is for the future of all life forms on this planet to become more harmonious with what creation has already set in place.
I hope that most of this has made sense and feel free to comment and ask questions pertaining to the physics. I could talk about this stuff for months at a time ;)
