Brilliant Light Power Going To Market - Free Energy Generator Part 3

Mod InfoThis is a continuation of Part 2. The split was arbitrary, and you may freely quote from the old thread here.

Is it acting as if it is magnetic, it seems to be incredible light whatever it is and if that was magnetic I'd expect it to be very quickly pulled onto the magnet not waving about unaligned with the magnetic field?

This page lists tungsten reactions, and the only two which seem to apply are the creation of tungsten trioxide, which doesn't look similar (not least because it's a pretty green colour), and tungsten hexafluride, which is a colourless gas.

So, unless there's a chemist who can point out something I'm missing, or unless there are reactions that haven't been mentioned on that page, then it doesn't seem to be a reaction of tungsten.
Also the proper reaction to anything that releases WF6 is to leave the area immediately; it's really nasty stuff.

In one of Mills's earlier experiments he managed to "vaporize" one of the electrodes and deposit approximately the same volume of material on the other electrode. I speculated at the time that a less controlled version of cathodic arc vaporization and deposition was going on.

Along the same lines, I speculate that the filaments are metallic, and formed from vaporized electrode material condensing along the path of the arc (when the arc itself is interrupted).

Mills is fooling around with high-powered (low voltage high current) arcs in nontypical and non-useful (in terms of known applications) ways. It would be ironic but not totally astounding if he accidentally comes up with some actually useful new product or process along the way.

He doesn't sell shares just takes and wastes investor's money on unproven claims. If he would be foolish enough to sell shares he would then come under SEC rules. As far as I know private company's can waste money as long as people are dense enough to give it to him and he has them sign a sheet that he is working on 'unproven technology that may not return a profit' or similar weasel words.

It would be paramagnetic, not diamagnetic (ferromagnetic). So the magnetism is derived from another magnetic field and is much weaker.

Knowing Mills, he would have calculated the paramagnetic force of the substance, as he does dozens of times throughout his book. (He uses diamagnetic, paramagnetic and electrical forces to calculate, say, atomic and molecular sizes.)

Aside from spider webs, the 'substance' reminds me of times when we would precipitate DNA out of an alcohol solution. In the solution the DNA was white, fine, long and stringy.

If I was to guess I would say the substance is polymeric hydrino hydride. The metal would have to be very light, like Beryllium. (I don't recall that Beryllium in any of it's valence states acts as a hydrino formation catalyst, so it probably isn't Beryllium itself. )

We'll soon find out when he publishes a paper on it. The good news is that now he can create hydrino hydride compounds very quickly rather than having it take weeks, per the era when he created the hydrino hydride crystals c2000.

The ones he promised to researchers and then never delivered.

Also when will he be providing his first sample with "anti-gravity" properties as he also promised back in the early days?

Those crystal compounds were delivered to lots of labs, as described earlier in this thread.

Hydrino hydrides don't have antigravity properties. Rather, Mills proposes that a free electron can be so energized as to produce a hyperbolic space time curvature around it, which would counter the positive space time curvature of gravity.

The above is not true at all, imo.

There is no independent evidence that any hydrino based crystals or compounds were ever produced by Mills or by any entity working for or connected to Mills.

No hydrino crystals were ever produced by Mills or by any entity working for or connected to Mills.

No hydrino compounds were ever produced by Mills or by any entity working for or connected to Mills.

Also imo:

No working hydrino based electricity or power generators of any type were ever produced by Mills or by any entity working for or connected to Mills.

No working hydrino based devices will ever be produced by Mills or by any entity working for or connected to Mills.

No hydrino compounds of any type will ever be produced by Mills or by any entity working for or connected to Mills.

There is absolutely no independent evidence of any of Mills' claims.
All reports and statements and claims trace back to entities connected to Mills.

You'll never be able to find anywhere where Mills has said his hydrino compounds have antigravity properties. You're only speaking from your confusion. Dihydrino gas, like hydrogen gas, will be buoyant in our atmosphere and go up, but that is not antigravity.

Meanwhile, look up chapter 35 in Mill's book and read all about the hyperbolic free electron with antigravity properties.

In this case it does. Because there's no evidence for any of Mills' claims as we've been over and over the past several years in this thread alone. Which includes in a roundabout way, the past thirty-ish years of all of Mills' claims, none of which have ever been produced as he himself has claimed time and time and time again.

Interesting wording: "You'll never be able to find anywhere where Mills has said his hydrino compounds have antigravity properties."

Fair, enough - he did not use those *exact* words. It's telling that you then direct attention to the chapter where antigravity characteristics are described...

It's very easy to show proof to counter my opinions, yet we will never see that happen.

Just like we will never see any Mills hydrino device that can even challenge one of these:

Obviously thatís the hard part since the rest of the parts for the generator already exist from off-the-shelf suppliers. Mills is projecting production units to be ready for delivery by the second half of 2017, with a fully prototyped working generator ready for field testing by the first half of 2017. Once Mills rolls out that first generator, be prepared for a monumental media **** storm to hit the public.

I stopped by the subreddit for Brilliant Light Power. Nothing surprising. A lot of very conspiracy-ish stuff about how THEY don't want Mills to be right and BIG SCIENCE won't listen to anything that might prove their pet theories wrong. Mostly it was just regurgitating the press releases and stuff, it's not a super active group for obvious reasons.

Funny. One would think they'd be perpetually active.

Polymeric hydrino hydride... Every time I see that word my mind reads, Hayride.

You must be really smart then.

How about, rather than being killed by your incredulity, being constructive and offering an informed opinion of your own about the web like substance being formed.

It's safe to assume you don't know that magnesium and beryllium can form hydrides that are chain like. They are covalent polymeric hydrides.

So it's not a stretch for me to hypothesize that the substance in question is a polymeric hydrino hydride.

It's not only a stretch it's an outright lie. There are no hydrinos. You're promoting a fraud.

So you are back to you screaming and yelling to please, please allow the possibility of Hydrinos?

Nah

Mills is a fraud

No Hydrinos

It is all a scam

Its been that way for 30 years and no begging is going to change it.

No matter how hard you try, no matter what you make up, Mill's folly will drag you down as it already has.

Nothing, nothing but a working hydrino based machine will save you - and that you will NEVER see.

I wish I'd known a few years ago how profitable spot and seam welding machines could be...

Well, they're profitable so long as you value your integrity at $0.
