Then you understand it wrong. BLP has no legal protection for any of the fundamental processes of producing hydrinos (pretending for a moment that such actually exists). Thus, no one else needs any kind of permission to build their own hydrino source, and carry out experiments on the resulting materials.

So I guess you don't understand licensing either.

Plasma can be relatively confined to a local area and yet exist in an open system. Consider a burning match.

In some earlier BLP Youtube videos you can see the brilliant flashes of light in a glove box as an audience looks on.

Here is a later video (from about a year and a half ago) where they have improved the process. But it is still not closed. The vapour would still be vented out.

If hydrinos are real, it is Mills himself who has kept the idea from going anywhere by keeping it all to himself, and allowing no one else to work with / on it.

Imagine that hydrinos are real, and there have been 5 or 6 companies and a few colleges working on hydrino projects from different angles since 1989, instead of just Mills.
Mills clearly knows how to allow that and still keep his rights to any results.

Of course, the real reason Mills has never, and will never produce a working device imo, is that Mills is a scam artist and hydrinos exist only in his money grubbing mind.

The parallel research that BLP is pursuing is all in areas that have nothing to do with producing a sustained hydrino reaction. They are all a distraction from the supposed real goal.

I may have missed something, but in that last quarterly report the only progress reported in the area of actually producing a sustained reaction was that they farmed that bit out to another company and that they failed to achieve a reaction. A laughable attempt to place the blame elsewhere while continuing to spend the investor's money as fast as possible.

Achieving a sustained, closed reaction requires engineering the ceramic SunCell environment, independent of MHD. The quarterly report page 9 says they've hired on more engineering staff to help with this. It also says that they are using low melting point metals and mechanical pumps to test the SunCell operability as a workaround because they were having trouble with simultaneously melting silver while keeping the EM pumps cool.

Several years ago: The relatively low temperature (cold fusion-like) cells are on the road to success with just a few minor nagging issues (oxidation) to be resolved before megawatts of power are generated. Still, it might take a few years to work out the last remaining kinks. I have an idea. To speed up the release timeline let's discard everything and start over with high current and hot metal electrodes. We'll have that working in no time!

Last year: It turns out that metal melts when it gets really hot. We could solve that with just a little more time, but it will speed up progress if we just switch to jets of molten silver instead. No need to worry about melting since it will already be melted!

Next year: For some reason jets of molten metal wind up all over the place. And even the pump ends up melting. Who would have thought! We could solve this with a bit more work, but in the mean time I have come up with the idea of using high power ion beams instead. After all those work for CERN! Switching to that will save time in the long run.

And so on...

Page 9?

If any of this was real then that would be the entire focus of their efforts. If they can't achieve an energy producing reaction then nothing else BLP is doing will matter.

(And if the DO produce such a reaction then nothing else BLP is doing will matter either.)

Good point.

Trying to design a commercial device around a reaction they haven’t even stabilized is, to be kind, stupid.

Of course in the past they’ve claimed to have stable reactions that ran for months. It’s only when they need a fresh excuse for delays that they suddenly claim to need to stabilize things.

If Mills isn’t a con man he’s an incompetent oaf.

No Markie. Achieving a sustained closed reaction requires an impossible feat, the impossible overunity reaction.

Once again you forgot that closed reactions are impossible to sustain by the very fundamental conservation of energy laws of physics! Not even Mills hocus pocus woo pseudoscience physics ramblings allows the perpetual motion machine in any form. It absolutely can not work. Impossible. Was pointed out to you before that even if the mythical hydrino existed, it couldn't power an overunity devise. full stop

Secondly yes, burning metals produces light and heat and that waste heat will cause Mills machines to melt down, blow up, malfunction etc. But it is not an engineering problem. It is a fuel problem. He is igniting metals with repurposed welding equipment in the presence of water causing both oxidation and hydrogen embrittlement. When the fuel runs out the reaction stops.

Basically he is purposely doing what 100's of thousands of welders have been trained NOT to do as it ruins the quality of the welds.

There are no hydrinos. Mills has never detected a single one ever. He has never held a hydrino crystal in his hands. No one has. Not one of those slag crystals Mills supposedly sent off to be examined ever once proved to have any hydrinos. Not once. The very idea is ludicrous. Just welding slag Nothing more.

BTW How would you even have a compound with hydrinos? Compounds share electrons. How could it be in a lower state for the hydrogen and still be at the higher state for the other elements in the compounds? Does it even make any sense?

Fun fact. The first version of this thread with this title started in January of 2017.

18 months and all Mills and Company have produced are excuses. It’s all they’ve ever produced after about 30 years. Excuses and vague, useless demos that could be cobbled together in the average Maker Space.

Clearly you have not been listening to what I've been saying. How many times must I say it? By a closed system, I mean plasma such as silver ions remaining contained in the sealed system rather than vented out. The fuel, which is hydrogen, is fed in. Dihydrino gas escapes out.

Simply burning metals do not produce anomalous energy. Mills and company produce anomalous energy. This has been validated over 25 years. The anomalous energy is correlated with anomalous product. The anomalous energy is correlated with certain emission continua. The anomalous energy requires the presence of hydrogen. The anomalous energy requires specific, predicted catalysts.

Just like a hydrogen atom, a hydrino atom can form a hydride. The internuclear distances are shorter and the bonds stronger.

That's not what "closed system" means.

Can you point to the specific research where Mills has calculated the energy that burning the metals will generate and demonstrated that he is generating energy above that? I'm looking for something with equations and specific numbers.

We agree - as ever with these claims as soon as they can "engineer" out the slight problem they will revolutionise the world, they never do because of course the slight problem is the fact that they always need more energy to be inputted then they get out.

Mills would say much sooner than that, but he has a history of being overly optimistic and underestimating problems.

I have no position in the company, nor do I know anyone personally in the company. Just an observer in the peanut gallery.
Half the year has gone.

The moving ions produce work against the magnetic field and ultimately produces electricity. I assume Mills is going to be using a closed MHD drive. This would typically involve heating a sealed container on one end, and the heated plasma expands and moves to the cooler end, producing work against an external magnetic field, and then the cooler fluid or gas is circulated back to the hot end and the process repeated, possible pulsed. The plasma/gas/fluid would be some kind of alkali metal.

Now, I am only speculating here, but the novelty of Mills' approach may be that he is not heating the closed MHD from without, but within.
But it would not be entirely closed; there would be some inlet for small amount of hydrogen gas. The dihydrino gas waste product would escape through the walls of the container. Again, just speculation on my part.

How much hydrino has been produced at BLP? Who knows. But there is dihydrino gas that would largely escape and is difficult to trap, and then there are various hydrino hydrides that are crystalline compounds.

"MHD drive"?!?! It is suppose to be a generator not a "drive".

For your own edification a MHD drive induces kinetic energy into the conducting fluid. Like a particle accelerator. An MHD generator generates electricity from the kinetic energy of the conducting fluid.

"novelty of Mills' approach may be that he is not heating the closed MHD from without, but within. " Well that would certainly be novelly stupid as it would mean there would be little to no kinetic energy to extract from the plasma as it entered the generator portion of the unit. Even more novelly stupid if the intent is that the magnetic fields induce that kinetic energy (like a drive) to the conducting fluid that is then extracted by the generator. Heck just using a Faraday channel generator with what looks like just electromagnets from a scrap yard or metal handling facility is novelly stupid enough. No need to be "speculating" about further stupidity, novel or not.

Techno-Tip: for you, Mills and whomever he might call a designer or engineer. Those types of electromagnets are designed to have the field reverse over the face of the magnet. Great for picking up metals and exactly what you don't want in this type of application. Also the magnetic field is most concentrated at the center, also a factor you don't want in this application. Makes the rest of the channel length not only useless but even detrimental, particularly if transversing the coil.

ETA: Oh and also there would be no need for the acceleration nozzle (pinched down portion of the channel) if the introduction of the thermodynamic energy didn't happen before that nozzle.

Yeah - remember when the guy who discovered tritium kept it all to himself and then tritium was never used industrially or in research for anything because none of the other thousands of scientists studying chemistry and physics ever discovered this thing which actually existed?

I rarely actually laugh out loud browsing, but I just did. Congratulations. I can only suppose that when Commander Data says he has to reconfigure the tachyon beam to bounce the subspace gravitrons off the deflector shields that you think you are watching a documentary.

I’m of two minds about this.

1. It’s obviously a scam. The law should put a stop to it.

2. The people stupid enough to fall for this scam are too stupid to NOT fall for a scam of some kind. At least Mills is, as far as we know, spending the money domestically. 419 scammers take the cash abroad.

For your own edification a MHD drive induces kinetic energy into the conducting fluid. Like a particle accelerator. An MHD generator generates electricity from the kinetic energy of the conducting fluid.

"novelty of Mills' approach may be that he is not heating the closed MHD from without, but within. " Well that would certainly be novelly stupid as it would mean there would be little to no kinetic energy to extract from the plasma as it entered the generator portion of the unit. Even more novelly stupid if the intent is that the magnetic fields induce that kinetic energy (like a drive) to the conducting fluid that is then extracted by the generator. Heck just using a Faraday channel generator with what looks like just electromagnets from a scrap yard or metal handling facility is novelly stupid enough. No need to be "speculating" about further stupidity, novel or not.

Techno-Tip: for you, Mills and whomever he might call a designer or engineer. Those types of electromagnets are designed to have the field reverse over the face of the magnet. Great for picking up metals and exactly what you don't want in this type of application. Also the magnetic field is most concentrated at the center, also a factor you don't want in this application. Makes the rest of the channel length not only useless but even detrimental, particularly if transversing the coil.

ETA: Oh and also there would be no need for the acceleration nozzle (pinched down portion of the channel) if the introduction of the thermodynamic energy didn't happen before that nozzle.

But, but, but ... you misunderstand!

Part of Mills' genius is to recognize that both the classical and quantum descriptions of electrons (and indeed ions too) is wrong!

You see, using the correct (i.e. Mills) descriptions, electrons and ions in an MHD generator behave in ways that normally differ only subtly from what you find in textbooks, but in the SunSellRTM, they behave so as to generate ginormous currents, which the latest iteration of the design is designed to capture.

And while markie doesn't mention it, a very real problem with this approach is runaway self-loop-closure-interactions, with feedbacks sufficient to - potentially - create a 2 km diameter crater. And Mills wants to avoid having to deal with law suits from NYC lawyers, suing him for damaged eardrums (they could care less about 10,000 people in NJ killed, after all, they're NJersians, a lower form of life than NYC lawyers).

You forgot to reverse the polarity for the phase integration of the tachyon emissions. The interocitor won't delineate the multi-spectral transitions without it. I was born in NJ and even I know that. One of the reasons we moved to slightly more upstate NY, better quality of lawyerly life.

Now you're in Mills' territory. A lower form of life than NYC lawyers is every bit as impossible as a lower than ground state electron in a hydrogen atom.

What about NYC layers who went on to become politicians?

I wonder when Mills or Markie will mention sterile neutrinos as proof of hydrinos?

My guess would be in the next "fringe reset" cycle.

Don't see how the two are related. But I do wonder if Mills will chime in about the possibility of sterile neutrinos. Mills explains why there can only be 3 families of quarks and leptons, but I don't recall that he was definitive about the neutrinos. For Mills, neutrinos are massless, travel at light speed, and change flavours only because of interaction with matter.

It depends on how sexy he finds the idea when he makes his next round of edits or statements.

If he finds the idea sexy he'll incorporate it into his mythology. If he doesn't, it'll be ignored in his successive sermons and scripture edits.

No. He will assert that the problem is being addressed, and a commercial product should be available in 18 to 24 months.

I have a question for Markie and any other true believers present - why should I invest in BLP when there are so many revolutionary power solutions available? Swisshtech already has a working prototype that they've shown working in YouTube videos* for example. Oh, and what about the tons of people who swear by Searl Effect Generators, which have been around a long time and have a great track record according to the people selling plans and materials for them. So why BLP? What does it have that the others don't?**



* It's for sure not a battery in a toolbox. Really.
** Not "proof that it's a real thing" for sure.

In which case, he is a) wrong, and b) an idiot.

Thumbs down markie: Mindlessly parrots a Mills delusion that neutrinos are massless

5 Jun 2018 markie: Ignorantly parrots a Mills delusion that neutrinos are massless when they are measured to have mass .
Neutrino
Quote:
A neutrino (/nuːˈtriːnoʊ/ or /njuːˈtriːnoʊ/) (denoted by the Greek letter ν) is a fermion (an elementary particle with half-integer spin) that interacts only via the weak subatomic force and gravity.[2][3] The mass of the neutrino is much smaller than that of the other known elementary particles.[1] Although only differences of squares of the three mass values are known as of 2016,[4] cosmological observations imply that the sum of the three masses must be less than one millionth that of the electron.[1][5]
5 Jun 2018 markie: Ignorantly parrots a Mills delusion that massless neutrinos change flavors through interaction with matter.
A massless neutrino always has the same flavor.


33 items of ignorance and some lies from markie from his blind faith in Mills.
  1. 28 May 2018 markie: A "consistent with Mills hydrino theory" lie.
  2. 28 May 2018 markie: Repeating a "They've worked on this for years" lie does not make it true.
  3. 25 May 2018 markie: A lie about "hydrino signatures" over years of experiments by Prof Ramanujachary at Rowan University.
  4. 25 May 2018 markie: A lie that Prof Ramanujachary did independent experiments [detecting those "hydrino signatures"].
  5. 28 May 2018 markie: Ramanujachary advertising BLP is not evidence of hydrino signatures or his years of independent experiments.
  6. 29 May 2018 markie: Advertises Mills delusions rather than addressing his probable lies.
  7. 29 May 2018 markie: If Mills delusions do not have EUV emissions then NMR results are at least dubious
  8. 31 May 2018 markie: Blind hero worship of the medical doctor Mills.

Many items of ignorance, delusions and lies in Mills book and a paper
