$1M gift offer to Rossi

Smith Offers $1 Million Prize for Successful E-Cat Demo
Posted on February 14, 2012 by Steven B. Krivit

To: Andrea Rossi
From: Dick Smith

Dear Mr Rossi

Re: USD1,000,000 for Successful Repeat of E-CAT Demonstration

Dick Smith is my name. I am writing to you from Sydney, Australia. Possibly the best information in relation to my background is on Wikipedia – see HERE.

Some time ago I was contacted by Mr Sol Millin of the Byron New Energy Trust. Mr Millin has had extensive communication with you. Mr Millin communicated the advantages of your ECAT unit in relation to energy and how it had the potential to solve the world’s energy problems. Mr Millin said that he had your authority to act on your behalf in relation to an agreement for the Australian “rights” to your invention.

After some discussion, I agreed that I would invest AUD200,000 provided that evidence could be shown that the unit actually worked as claimed.

There has been a lot of to’ing-and-fro’ing since then, with Mr Millin claiming that he has provided me with the evidence and with my insistence that this is not the case.

At one stage Mr Millin even sent me an email (attached) threatening to sue me for one-hundred-million-dollars if I did not proceed with sending him my AUD200,000.

As Mr Millin and I do not seem to be getting anywhere on this issue, I have determined a way that we could possibly break this nexus, i.e. I would like to offer you USD1,000,000 for a successful repeat of the March 29, 2011 demonstration.

One million US dollars will be made out to you as a Bank cheque or will be held in an escrow account if you desire. I do not want to know how the unit operates, nor to have a share in the profits from any sales. My satisfaction will come from knowing that if the unit is successful, then some of the world’s greatest problems – especially in relation to climate change – will be solved.

I point out that over the last few decades my wife and I have donated many millions of dollars to scientific research, much of it without any immediate results. We have not complained about this.

My offer is very simple, which I will restate: I ask you to repeat the March 29, 2011 demonstration purported to show that your E-CAT unit had an output power of many times the input power through LENR (low energy nuclear reactions).

As the sole judges as to whether this can be repeated correctly, I suggest we use the two Swedish scientists, Kullander and Essen, as they attended the March 2011 demonstration and wrote a report. I would be happy to cover any reasonable cost of having them flying to Italy to attend the repeat of the demonstration. They can then check the wires (because, as you know, there have been claims that the wiring may have been misconnected) and also the power output of the unit in relation to both the heated water and the steam.

I would be happy, with Kullander and Essen as the sole judges as to whether the unit has the power output you have claimed, to hand you an irrevocable Bank cheque for USD1,000,000 made out in your name if the demonstration is successfully completed. If Kullander and Essen are not available, I am happy to agree with you on two other individuals of similar expertise to attend the new demonstration as the judges. I am sure we can come to an agreement as to who would be suitable and independent. It would also be necessary to have a third person – who you and I can agree on – to assist with the type of measuring equipment and its accuracy so there are no doubts that the scientific community will accept the results.

I understand the 29 March 2011 demonstration took place over a period of more than six hours and showed a power multiplication of approximately ten times. To make the demonstration test even fairer, I would be happy if the demonstration to qualify for the assignment of the USD1,000,000 were reduced to a five-hour period and with a power multiplication ratio of at least eight times. This will make it very much easier for you to qualify for the USD1,000,000, As far as I am concerned, eight times’ power multiplication through LENRs will solve the world’s power problems for the future.

Mr Rossi, I believe the advantage of my offer is that you can show the sceptics (I am presently one of them) that the unit actually works as you have claimed. I notice that you have had other investors offering very large amounts of money, and I can understand your concern in relation to this. My offer is USD1,000,000 without any conditions attached at all in relation to where you will spend the money. You can use it for further research – perhaps to re-purchase your house or even donate some of the money to charity.

Well, there it is. It’s quite simple. Successfully replicate the demonstration showing the power gain from LENRs of March 29, 2011 with the two Swedish scientists, Kullander and Essen (or two other individuals we agree on), and USD1,000,000 will be yours.

Also, of course, you will receive attention from around the world and a well-deserved Nobel Laureate. I will consider I have had value for my money as the person who actually proves that your unit works (or doesn’t) – an issue which will be resolved for all time.

My offer is open for you to accept until close of business Monday 20 February 2012.
I look forward to your reply.

Yours faithfully

Dick Smith

It is well documented, as you say. But not with the results that you say.

Adobe creates multiple layers on conversion of a photo to PDF. It is something about doing OCR. A bit weird, and frankly I was surprised, but you can reproduce precisely the effect using standard Adobe software and any image.
I don't have the experience or interest to personally evaluate it. But, if it is the case as you see it, why not do a slam dunk in court and embarrass the hell out of the birthers?

I would think that would be easily and demonstrably made clear, in a Court of Law, if it is as you say.

I would think Obama would relish such a golden opportunity to make these naysayers look foolish.

Maybe he's just hoping to set the timing for it in, say, October?

If you'd care to see the technical under pinning of the issue relating to the release of the 'long form' birth certificate:

It would appear the long form birth certificate made available on the White House web site is a forgery.
Somebody apparently forgot to 'flatten' the Adobe Illustrator file into only a single layer.
Leaving the various layers used to construct the forgery plain to see.

At least, that's what the YouTube video purports.

As to being immune to 'petty' court cases.
Challenging a person's constitutional eligibility to be President is hardly petty, IMHO.
I wonder how many other 'petty' cases Obama has been represented by counsel, already.
As opposed to no counsel representing him appearing before the Court.

And this case is hardly moot.
If the process appears heading to removing Obama's name from the Georgia ballot, you can be sure other 'red' states will follow suit.
Question then becomes would a sufficient number of swing states follow suit. If so, he wouldn't be able to receive the electors for those states for the Electorial college.

Which means he would be doomed to being only a 1 term President.

And, as far as I can see, who ever the Republicans nominate for President would essentially win by default, depending on the timing of this process.

It would appear that the timing of all of the likely proceedings will be quite a juggling act to try to manage and be key to a lot of whatever is going to transpire. And the failure of any counsel to appear part of the delay / timing scenarios.

And then consider if Obama should receive sufficient Electors and be sworn in for a second term, and then these cases go against him, even to the point of the Supreme Court.

Would the Vice President, who presumably is qualified, become President? Would Obama have to resign prior to a SC ruling, in order for the VP to move up?

Pretty unprecedented stuff.

Mr. Capman,

As far as I can tell, you are still treating the PET / CMBT as a conventional dielectric.

That is fraught with many obstacles, as all of the skeptics have been gone over in voluminously.

Leaving having energy stored within the body of the dielectric as a novel and heretofore never used strategy that might accomplish this black swan.

If so, I fear the electrical testing might be more difficult than proposed.

FWIW, the ability to blow an occasional fuse as low as the individual layer level as an early infant mortality or MTBF failure in the field has tremendous appeal to me. But that seems only possible with the prior very much slower 'silk screen' method, not the latest extrusion method.

How many genuine, competitive alternatives are there to Google, Facebook, Twitter, ... as they become ever more a monopoly.

For the banks, as a group to move, would be conspiracy / collusion.

But, for a single company to make a 'business' decision?

IMHO, y'all are missing the underlying point.

Willful (temporary) discontinuance of service, under whatever guise.

What if, say, Google, Facebook, Twitter, eBay, Amazon, Netflix, ... were mad about something and wanted to get their way. How long would a lock out, in labor terms, last and who do you think would prevail?

They are becoming more powerful than any government.

Simple question.

If human intervention is to be attempted, *who* or *how* is *what* desired target determined?

Even if, say, some genuinely practically miraculous black swan method does come to be, who decides *what* gets done and *when* some targeted goal has been accomplished?

Since we have a terribly fractious tribal society organized in nation states, I just don't see a practical, serious way to reach an enforcable attempt anything that has any serious level of economic consequences.

Should climate actually be a real concern, I don't see humans on a planetary scale avoiding the fate of the frog in a warming pot of water.

In recent days, I have noticed a new Internet trend.

The various TLD (Top Level Domain) suffixes (.com, .gov, .us, .ca, .country abbrev, ...) are being cleverly used to incorporate a better domain / site name.

The first such use I'm aware of was .tv
The country code for the islands of Tuvalu.
(Verisign got a deal to use it)

First on my new list is a Google version of TinyURL.com:
Goo.gl
(Google, get it?)
(BTW, a preview version only requires adding a "+" to the end of their short link).
.gl is the TLD for GreenLand.

Example: http://goo.gl/uKNRV+ as a short (previewed) link to TheEEStory.com

Next TLDs that caught my notice is .co, for Columbia and .in for India . Some of the *very* short / highly desirable domain names are (were?) likely available.

Looks like this is an obvious primarily marketing usage of a quirk in Internet domain naming that's going to catch fire.

Chat snippets of DRP's Chat postings in the wee (ET) hours

Happy Holidays all you numbnutz

Ok, let's see .... nope, magnetics can't possibly have anything to do with generating or holding static a 10,000 J/cc energy density in a material. Fundamentally impossible for that energy to volume ratio. It's like expecting a huge industrial pressing machine to be driven by a 500 hp V8 engine, but linked by a clutch from a gas powered weed-eater. Not possible. The clutch is under-engineered for the task. If it doesn't slip and therefore fail to transmit even 1% of the incident power into the press's energy storage (material strain), then it will shred, depending on the attempted rate of energy transfer. Maybe this analogue helps to put the profound difference in material physical limitations between magnetics and electrics in an every-day perspective?

or not :)

what else.....

Ah - orbitals, bonding, hybridization, etc...... well, yes and no.

I mean, yes these details are relevant at some level, but no because they are extraneous. The material is either conductive or it's not. The conductivity is either n-type or p-type, or both. Both is a disaster due to recombination. N-type does not prevent a purely surface charge at the alumina barrier and will result in breakdown at low applied fields. P-type affords a higher breakdown due to progressively wider barrier thickness, and also allows various other interesting interactions with the bulk CMBT material.

I've mentioned this before - I don't care about the niggling specifics wrt orbitals and their hybridizations.... the various doping approaches of BT to allow conduction of various types has been well covered in the literature for 40 years. The specific doping approach and resultant orbital details are mundane and uninteresting to me. What you can DO with that fact, when coupled with other material properties, is another matter entirely.

Don't get mired in the details. Think about the system as a whole, and how the various (already established) parts work together. This isn't a tough nut to crack unless you mire yourself in quantum/material/chemical detail. The answer lies in an understanding of the wide field of cybernetics. Specifically, Systems Dynamics. Yes, this takes years to learn. Sorry :)

DAP, wtf? I posted on that 3 years ago, and many times since. It's on Lensman'FAC site as well:

percent volume distribution of component materials

CMBT: 94 % (6.5 g/cm3)
PET: 4 % (1.4 g/cm3)
aluminum electrodes: 2 % (2.7 g/cm3)


k, what else .......

Ah, packing density. Right.

The stoicheometry of the ink formulations, coupled with the specific poling schedule, pretty much covers that I would think. You can add ultrasonics in there if necessary.

Somebody please tell me that you understand how the different permittivity of the various materials will unavoidably ensure self-assembly of particle orientation/distribution under poling field....

Ratios of materials in the ink also obviously determine the extent of the particle excursion past the plates, and therefore handles fringing.

"Voids" of air pockets are no exception. The permittivity of air (nitrogen/oxygen) is approximately 1. Think about it. Think about the experiment where you introduce a high dielectric between the plates of an air/vacuum capacitor. How does applied field preferentially affect different permittivities of materials?

The differential dispersion between the low K polymer matrix and the high K particles during poling will be no different.

And cracking, yeah....

Seriously? Like a traditional MLCC? The layers in that are pressed/sintered ceramic particles without a polymer matrix. It's like peanut brittle.

EEStor's material is like those rubber blocks with grit embedded in them that are used for polishing metals.

That stuff doesn't "crack" from flexing. Sure, PET plastic has a higher fatigue index than many other plastics/rubbers, so use a mixture or some other formulation entirely. It's not going to "crack" like a ceramic for Pete's sake. Jeez.

Especially not like a ceramic made of an agglomerated press of particles...

There are many different types of polymers.

It's a trade off. Some have higher tensile strength but lower shear (PET)

Some have higher puncture resistance (like rubber), but lower dielectric strength (maybe a propylene, or a flouroethylene compound like Teflon)

Maybe, the answer is a layered approach - something more elastomeric and puncture proof like an ethylene to pre-wrap each particle, but PET as the overall matrix for toughness, like leather.

Hard to say, I'm not very conversant in organic chem, just enough to know what's possible and what's BS.

What else.....

Right, semiconduction....

well first off let's make one niggling detail clear: y'all are using the terminology incorrectly

"semiconductor" strictly means an undoped material. Unfortunately, the "street talk" about this matter seems to have settled on referring to doped (conductive) and undoped materials as "semiconductors". This is incorrect and adds to the confusion.

A true semiconductor (such as undoped crystalline silicon) is somewhere between a conductor and an insulator. Practically speaking, it is closer to an insulator.

Just to put things in perspective: in undoped silicon, the charge carrier availability is so low that it equates to aprox 1 electron (AVERAGE availability) in every group of 100 particles of EEStor's size. Yes, one electron per 100 particles. That's a pure (intrinsic) semiconductor.

That is mind bogglingly low, right? Well, it's mind bogglingly high compared to a decent insulator. Does this put things in perspective for some of you?

Now, let's go on to doped materials - NOT semiconductors - rather, materials that have been doped to conduct - they are not semiconductors anymore, they are conductors.

There are two basic types - n-type and p-type.

In 3.5 years on this blog, I haven't seen evidence from one single person that actually understands the functional, physical difference between these two, except for maybe dfwrunner but he doesn't talk about this enough for me tobe sure.

Ok, doped conductors...

Lets' take silican as a common example. Dope it with Boron to some small fraction. Understand one point here: large fractions of one percent doping is usually considered HUGE doping levels. Just FYI.

Sorry, "silicon".

I think I'm rambling :)

yeah, don;t delete. That's for weenies

OCD ESSU

where was I?

oh yeah.....

semiconductor physics

SK, do you understand the defining distinction, at the molecular/lattice level, between valence band conduction and conduction band conduction? Just curious and whatnot...

OK well, it has to do with the mode of conduction in general and its relation to the material's Fermi energy level (of course) but more importantly, it unavoidably determines the spatial distribution of displaced charge carriers in a mono-doped bulk material (ie, not a fused junction of p and n types) because unlike conduction band electrons, holes are fundamentally related to the lattice itself. Holes are strange because not only do they exist solely through electron hopping in the valence band, but they also necessarily are anchored in place in the lattice because they are simply a deficit bonding aspect of a lattice atom. Free electrons can pile up and exist interstitially, holes cannot.

This is a schematic representation of what goes on at the atom-to-atom level during hole (valence band) conduction. It is actually electron hopping between valence energy states wrt closely situated atoms, but in the the opposite direction to conduction electron drift. If you don't understand this at a fundamental level, you will never understand what's going on in EEStor's material.
http://www.theeestory.com/files/Maloney_-_Current___Voltage_Fig.2-30_-_Electron-Hole_Movement_640.jpg

Truth be told, it also means you don;t have a grasp of semiconductor physics as well, because this is fundamental.
