LENR-to-Market Digest -- January 22, 2015

Highlights include: McKubre reports on a variation of Rossi's 3rd party test in Lugano by Russian senior scientist, Alexander Parkhomov; info on pre-ordering E-Cats; 1 MW plant test updates; preparing for mass production; Brillouin's travels and progress; MFMP "dog bone core test" progress.

By Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News

In this digest I'm not going to try and be comprehensive in covering what I've missed since our last digest on August22. Actually, we also did some heavy coverage around the October 8 third party test result in Lugano.

As usual, the first and primary place I go is E-CatWorld, which has the best and most frequent coverage in the LENR sector. Frank does a fantastic job. 

Frank posted more than 120 LENR stories going back to October 22, about half of which were about the E-Cat. This is quite a collection of material. 

Having been away from it for so long (three months), it's quite amazing to me to see how mature the industry is getting. Good luck not being impressed by what is here!! It's amazing to me that this isn't getting more mainstream attention, though that is picking up some, especially with Bill Gates paying attention.

          Yes, the pre-orders will be handled as follows, if and when the domestic units will be put on the market: all the persons that have sent a pre-order will receive an offer: if they will confirm the order along the offer they will receive the E-Cat. Priority will not be a big issue, because when we will decide to put the domestic E-Cat in the market it will be produced in big numbers, so that it is likely that the delivery term will not be a big issue.

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
