Day 2 of the 21st International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science ICCF21 at the Colorado State University began early and sadly, yours truly was on sub-standard , and I missed several of the talks, including the first one, which I was really excited about.
Fran Tanzella presented Nanosecond Pulse Stimulation in the Ni-H2 System at 8AM. Unfortunately, I was late, and Tanzella was already in full-swing. He was showing a diagram of the 4th generation Brillouin Hot Tube (Isoperibol) which operates in an H2 gas, runs at a constant pressure and uses two types of calorimetry. The action begins with an automated sequence of low voltage pulses. The temperature is also varied from 200-600 degrees C in fixed intervals.
Sadly, I forgot my glasses, and could hardly see the screen of data. I had to leave and run to get them in the dorm room, quite a distance away.
Upon returning with full sight, Mitchell Swartz was already speaking on Aqueous and Nanostructured CF/LANR Systems. His quasi 1-dimensional model begins with the flow of deuterons in the lattice, but the take-away is that if you see bubbling in an aqueous systems, you will not succeed.
He then showed a graph of an improved system called Phusor. The light-water system which uses a gold anode and nickel cathode are ohmic controlled and at ICCF10 at Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT, it demonstrated a 2.5x energy output live over three days.
Swartz has controlled “heat after death” and gotten massive excess heat. A JET CF Engine was the inspiration for DTRA to fund work in this space.
Swartz asked Melvin Miles for his voltage data (only electrical current was published) and when Swarz computed the energies using his model and Miles’ voltage numbers, agreement was made. Swartz said he has no doubt that what Miles discovered with the heat-helium correlation was correct.
There are two states in th pre-loaded nano-materials for the NANOR design, where energy gains at yet another live demo at MIT were 12x input power.
Swartz tries to characterize the material by starting at low-voltage and increasing the voltage until an “avalanche” episode downwards, which matches the Ohmic control. It is found that coherent optical beams interact with phonons to increase power in these systems.
Two states of the system, active and inactive, have been confirmed by spectroscopy, the excess heat, and another method. Mitchell Swartz works with Peter Hagelstein of MIT to understand the science through theory-driven experiments and they are continuing to collaborate on the NANOR design to achieve robust excess heat.
I had wanted to get a picture of Mitchell Swartz but he resisted as he had a black eye from bumping his head on the very square and hard wood bed frames in these dorm rooms! I’ll get that picture tomorrow.
Francesco Celani was next with Steps to Identification of Main Parameters for AHE Generation in Sub-Microscopic Materials Measurements by Isoperibolic and
He first acknowledged Brian Josephson (among others) who wrote to the National Institute for Nuclear Physics INFN in Italy in support of the continuation of Celani’s research, despite the fact that he was at the working age limit and should be retired.
Celani’s work focused on Constantan materials. Since 2011 he uses gaseous Hydrogen with the thermocouple inserted within the Ni nano powders and not the Ni itself. Fe-Constantan is the best to work with at <700 C. To increase the surface are of of CNM wire, several hundred electric pulses (50ms duration) are applied. He showed a diagram of the cathode wires with "knots" in them. A video camera on the wire during activation showed the pulses actually flexing the wire wildly. The knot regions are significantly hotter than the regular straight wire, and, the chemical composition of the wire also changed. He found the active area of the wire is in the sub-micrometric surface. The anomalous heat generated is inversely proportional to the diameter of the wire. Putting glass sheaths around the wire also proved to increase the heat effect and in at least one case melted the glass.
M.R. Staker then spoke on Coupled Calorimetry and Resistivity Measurements, in Conjunction with an Emended and More Complete Phase Diagram of the Palladium- Isotopic Hydrogen System
He had a huge outline of material first focusing on H-induced Vacancy Formation.
SAV are the most stable structure of all M-H alloys, a “true equilibrium form”. The same thermal de-sorption occurs for nickel, copper and other materials.
Then, E.J. Beiting of spoke on Investigation of the Nickel-Hydrogen Anomalous Heat Effect reproduced from The Aerospace Corporation’s paper Investigation of the Nickel-Hydrogen Anomalous Heat Effect.
Get the report on the Aerospace Company’s Library page by referencing the number ATR-2017-01760.
Beiting spent 20 years investigating electric propulsion. Most satellites are launched with electric propulsion. Cold fusion /LENR will revolutionize this space, allowing more high-power communication and dropping the large, bulky and weighty solar power systems.
He noted that NASA has developed a Stirling engine with a 20-year lifetime.
Aerospace Corporation IRAD Limitation Resources are scarce in the skeptical environment there, and Beiting had one experimental shot to try an investigation.
He chose to replicate the Arata/Ahern Sample Preparation, using thermal triggering and a DC power supply.
Sample preparation was similar to that in yesterdays Technova presentation. Nanometer Ni-Pd particles are added in micron-sized particles. He deviated from Arata/Ahern by adding small magnetic materials.
Two experiments used two cells each, an active and a control cell. Details are in the Aerospace report, but Beiting saw excess heat in both cells, and more excess heat with the magnetic particles. He recorded power in, pressure, and temperature. X-ray tomography (excellent equimant at Aerospace Corp.) on the cell revealed the internal structure of the loaded cell, and how the material was situated.
20 grams of active material were in each cell and the active cell received about 20 grams of magnetic materials.
The gas-loading period was 2 days, the heating-triggering period was 4 days. Total run time of the experiment was 10 weeks.
At 950 hours (40 days), excess energy appeared to be greater than chemically possible with a 7.5% excess power. He feels confident that he has verified results of Arata/Ahern.
A few weaknesses were that thermometry was used instead of calorimatry, and the thermocouples were imbedded in the sample which had caused a possible reaction with the sample and a possible hot spot.
Upper management of Aerospace Corporation were at Univeristy of Utah during the early years of this science, and continue to be skeptical. He noted that very competent physicists give non-scientific objection without even looking at the data.
After researching the psychology of this, Beiting ended with CONFIRMATION BIAS + COGNITIVE DISSONANCE do not equal CRITICAL THINKING.
A short break allowed me to take some photos of the crowd before William Collis of ISCMNS introduced Jean-Paul Biberian to speak on Anomalous Isotopic Composition of Silver in a Palladium Electrode for the session on Transmutations.
Biberian worked with a cathode given to him by Stanley Pons in 2001 from the ICARUS 9 cell. He aimed to do SIMS analysis to detect any transmutations. He showed a diagram of the double-walled cell and listed various fusion reactions involving PD+D that give silver Ag isotopes.
The cathode was a 100mm x 2mm pure palladium rod and Biberian heated it at 600 degrees C to be sure there was no deuterium left in the cathode.
Always separate experimental data from interpretation, Biberian was told by the Director of his lab years ago.
Ag107 was found 1 micron below the surface, which he says might be the region of active zone, but there was only a 3/100 increase of Ag 107 / Ag-109 which he found rather disappointing.
Biberian’s results are in agreement with John Dash’s work, and he concludes that Ag107 is produced, or formation of Pd-107 with a long half life is produced. Also, Biberian states that the reaction is a surface reaction one micrometer thick and happens only in hot spots.
Max Fomatchev-Zamilov presented Synthesis of Lanthanides on Nickel Anode and began by saying he would like to see a set of instructions for a reaction, and this is the inspiration for his work. He decided to reproduce an earlier experiment design from 1953 that would focus on neutrons, using an x-ray tube within a a housing of lead bricks and neutron counters on each side.
Counts using a nickel and titanium anode were statistically significant at better than 5% level and repeatable. But then he looked for systematic errors and after removing them, his statistical significance was removed too.
Sternglass was in error on this: neutrons were not synthesized, and lanthanides were not synthesized. However, Fomatchev says the experience allowed him to develop experience in SEM, EDS, precision neturon/gamma detection techniqes and he is ready to help you do analyses with his full lab equipment.
G. Lu and W Zhang were unable to attend, so the next speaker was Vladimir Vysottski, who filled in with a talk on biological transmutations, beginning with a nod to C.L. Kervan’s work on biological transmutation, which Vysottski does not want to separate from the general transmutation reactions with isotopes.
In their early research, Vysottski and Kornilova discovered that Mn55 + D2 = Fe57 + 15.6MeV.
A biological culture grows in D20 in 48 hours and a Mossbauer analysis is done. It is found that 10 ^-8 Fe57 are generated per second. 10 micrograms of Iron are created for 1 gram of dried biological culture.
Investigating a great number of different cultures, they get the same results.
The expectation that Cs133 + p = Ba134 was a later investigation. Sure enough, Cs decreased over time, and the Ba increased by 10^-6 per second.
Vysottski de-activated radioactive nuclear reactor water and saw a decrease in gamma activity over a period of 45 days, the duration of the experiment, and the increase of Ba138, indicating the decreasing presence of Cs137.
The next speaker A. Nkitin followed up on that theme with Impact of Effective Microorganisms on the Activity of 137 Cs in Soil from the Exclusion Zone of Chernobyl NPP.
Effective Microorganism (EM) has been globaly used for sustainable agriculture, animal husbandry and environmental conservation for 25 years. There are two forms of EM, liquid and solid.
In one experiment, Cs137 activity was decreased in the soil of a corn field treated with EM-1. In another experiment, soil in a column was treated repeated with EM causing a leaching and decrease of Cs137.
Then they investigated the effect of EM on the rate of radioactivity of Cs137. Contaminated soils were placed in 100-ml containers and mixed with EM1 or EM-bokashi and kept at room temperature. Periods of exposure were 6, 12, and 18 months with experiments repeated 15 times.
Varying levels of decrease in Cs137 activity were observed according to the parameters. Also, electromagnetic fields can accelerate this process.
After lunch, Yasuhiro Iwamura introduced Sveinn Olafsson of University of Iceland with What is Rydberg Matter and Ultra-Dense Hydrogen?Scientists Leif Holmlid was working with ultra dense Hydrogen 2.3 +/- 0.1 pm and Olafsson wanted to work with him.
Tunneling fusion rate is given by the Gomov probability of crossing the barrier times the attempt frequency. 0.2 eV bonding per state possible if d ~ 2.3 pm
Is Rydberg matter a frozen plasma state?
A laser is directed towards a cluster of dense hydrogen and the time of flight of the ejected particles (the time it takes to go a particular distance along a tube to a detector) measures how the cluster falls apart, which will be a function of the distance between atoms, too. A bond distance of 2.3 pm is found.
Olafsson has a nice Rydberg lab in Iceland with three different Rydberg matter cells. He will continue to work in this space with Holmlid and the next speaker, a PhD student at University of Iceland.
Sindre Zeiner-Gundersen spoke on Hydrogen Reactor for Rydberg Matter and Ultra Dense Hydrogen, a Replication of Leif Holmlid. Zeiner experimentally confirmed Holmlid with a tight replication, though it took 3 years!
Time of Flight was 180 micro seconds, too slow for Rydberg matter. Finally, he saw Rydberg matter at 20 microseconds.
He increased the length of the time of flight tube
With a length 236 cm, time of flight was 31 nanoseconds corresponding to 7.55 MeV. He then went down to time of flight of 14 nanoseconds and the ultra-dense deuterium signal was observed.
As I was dropping out of conscioussness due to lack of sleep, I had to exit and return to the dorm for a rest. I missed the last session of the day on Theory where Xing Zhong Li presented Resonant Surface Capture Model, J.-L. Paillet and A. Meulenberg presented On Highly Relativistic Deep Electrons, C. D. Stevenson and J. P. Davis spoke on Isotope Effects beyond the Electromagnetic Force: 1H and 2H in Palladium Exhibiting LENR, and V. Dubinko talked about Chemical and Nuclear Catalysis Mediated by the Energy Localization in Hydrogenated Crystals and Quasicrystals.
I made it back for the International Society of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science annual meeting where a new website was discussed, as well as changes in the organizational structure.
Ironically, two Cooks, Bob Cook and Norman Cook, are both leading special theory sessions Tuesday nite (right now!) and tomorrow Wednesday night. I had to skip the session tonite but I am about to hit the hay and get a good night’s rest for tomorrow’s heavy science download.
I can’t say enough how thrilling it is to be amongst such driven researchers who are working at the edge of what is known. The atmosphere is charged with hope and commitment. Here are some snapshots I took during the morning break. Can you see the excitement on their faces?!
Cold Fusion Now! is attending the 21st International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science ICCF-21 here in Fort Collins, Colorado US. Steve Katinsky and David J. Nagel of LENRIA organized the entire event, working overtime to make this happen. Colorado State University is beautiful and the attendees are happy with the venue.
Yours truly arrived Sunday evening a mere shadow of the woman I was, but after today’s presentations, I’m feeling quite rejuvenated.
David J. Nagel introduced keynote speaker Tom Darden at the 21st International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science. He spoke about “group-think” and urged scientists to keep open minds and reject conformity thinking, going through examples of “cultural group-think” in American society, and referenced the last US election. He wants to see the mainstream open up to scientific papers and he is seeking to engage the whole of science in this important field. “Humanity needs for us to succeed,” he ended.
“I needed to see it with my own eyes to believe that it was true”, says McKubre. “At the same time, cold fusion is reproduced somewhere on the planet every day. Verification has already happened. But self-censorship is a problem in the CMNS field. Are we guarding our secrets for fear that someone else might take credit? Yes.”
But energy is a primary problem and you must “collaborate, cooperate, and communicate”, McKubre says to the scientists in the room.
McKubre thanked Jed Rothwell and Jean-Paul Biberian for all the work on lenr.org and the Journal of Condensed Matter nuclear Science, respectively. Beyond that, the communication in the CMNS field is very poor and needs to be remedied.
He also supports a multi-laboratory approach where reproductions are conducted. Verification of this science has already occurred in the 90s, with the confirmation of tritium, and the heat-helium correlation. He believes that all the many variables must be correlated to move forward. Unfortunately, he believes the same thing he said in 1996, according to a Jed Rothwell article, that “acceptance of this field will only come about when a viable technology is achieved.”
To make progress, a procedure for replication must be codified, and a set of papers should be packaged for newbies to the field. A demonstration cell is third important effort to pursue.
Electrochemical PdD/LiOD is already proven, despite the problem with “electrochemisty”, and has not been demonstrated for >10 years. Energetics Technologies cell 64 a few years back gave 40 kJ input 1.14 MJ output, gain= 27.5 Sadly, the magic materials issue prevented replication.
“1 watt excess power is too small to convince a skeptic, and 100 Watts too hard (at least for electrochemistry)”, said McKubre. The goal is to create the heat effect at the lowest input power possible.
According to McKubre, Verification, Correlation, Replication, Denomstration, utilization are the five marks of exploring and exploiting the FPHE.
Afterwards, Edmund Storms of Kiva Labs commented about an important replication in 1990 when he used a piece of palladium from Akito Takahashi that had given excess heat, and Storms got excess heat, too. More material was manufactured using the same exact process, and again that mateerial gave excess heat.
After a short break, Mahadeva Srinivasan introduced the next speaker for the session on Heat Measurements. Dennis Letts began his talk on Building & Testing a High Temperature Seebeck Calorimeter written by D. Letts and D. Cravens.
Letts reported excess heat of 5-7 Watts from this system and gave detailed specifics on the construction, justifying each design element for the experiment. The Seebeck performance is very slow, but stable. The experimental results were then presented by Dennis Cravens.
These guys have control, off and on excess heat regulated by adding light hydrogen to their deuterium fuel, which quenches their excess. 5-7 Watts can be achieved for weeks on end, however, 3-5 Watts is their average. They saw a max of 10 Watts. On the longest run, they achieve 1.58 MJ of energy, “definitely not chemistry”, says Cravens.
Next up was Tadahiko Mizuno’s presentation on Excess Heat Generation by Simple Treatment of Reaction Metal in
Hydrogen Gas. Mizuno was not able to attend, so co-author Jed Rothwell
He reported 20-40 Watts from a glow discharge set-up which uses air-flow calorimetry as other calorimetries interfered with the experiment. Calorimetry is based on the input and output temps, but it is important to measure temperature everywhere, inside the cell, on the reactor, etc.
The reactor design allows viewing the plasma when operational. The cell usines palladium rods and two cells are used simultaneously with one used as an active cell, the other is the control.
Experimental steps were detailed where 99% input power was accounted for, with one experiment giving 6% excess heat and another 12% excess. Rothwell ended the talk by saying anyone who wants to replicate Mizuno’s results will find him to be very helpful, though a translator may be needed.
The last paper for the excess heat session was from George H. Miley of UIUC and LENUCO, who presented Progress in Cluster Enabled LENR by himself and the IH C-U Lab Team.
Miley described his original 12 nanometer thin-film work which he says created dislocation loop clusters. He found that high-loading and de-loading of the reactor creates defects and clusters which will be reactive.
Now he’s working on PdZrO2 nanoparticles 30% Pd / 70% zirconium which produce the defects needed for reaction. A particular milling process produces more defects as measured by an NMR spectrum. The calorimeter uses a pulsed pressurization/depressurization experiments. He showed experimental results of system runs over six months, which he carefully noted did not included some runs where errors or equipment problems occurred.
All the studies were focused on the effect of changing parameter, as opposed to reproducibility. Cryo-milled particles produced higher energies on the order of 600-1200 MJ.
Further study on transmutation by-products were hampered by the possibility of contamination. Also, CR-39 images showed a direct relationship between particle object detection and pressure cycling; more pressure cycles created substantially more particles.
Assuming results remain encouraging in added experiments, a prototype pulse reactor of 1-20W level is possible, if desired. A small 29 grams can produce 30-some Watts power, though there is a scaled up design as well.
After a lunch break, Robert Duncan introduced Akito Takahashi from Technova, Inc to begin the session on Heat from Nanomaterials with his paper Research Status of Nano-Metal Hydrogen Energy. Results from the MHE reactor was presented.
2-8 Watts of Anomalous Heat Effect lasted for over a week at elevated temperature using light-hydrogen.
The largest excess heat level was 10-20Watts of excess power for one week. In one run, a big heat burst occurred during desorption of hydrogen. About 15cc100g PNZ5r power and D2 produced heat well beyond chemical energies.
He found an optimum ratio of Pd/N for the PNZ series at 450 degree to be around 7.
Next up was Yasuhiro Iwamura with Research Center for Electron Photon Science at Tohoku University. He described a collaborative research Project including Kobe University, Tohoku University, Kyushu University, Ngoya University, Technova, and Nissan from 2015-2017 with the objective to verify the existence of the AHE in nanometal and hydrogen gas interaction and to seek controlability of the effect.
A table showing 16 experiments using different materials showed multiple instances of high energy with one run creating 200 MJ/mole D. Released Energy per fuel unit (J/g) was shown to be significantly larger than chemical energy.
His experimental setup uses oil flow calorimetry at High Temperature, uses lots of meaurement points, and is resistant to exterior (outside) temperature changes. Sample preparation uses melt spinning. The reactor consists of 1 mm Zirconia beads (about 1300 grams) in the chamber and then the nano material is added.
Experimental results at Tohoku were reproduced at Kobe University with positive results using the very same samples. Temperatures for these runs ranged from 140 degrees C up to 350 degrees C. For the first CNA5S sample with H2, 67.8 eV/H was produced. The two further runs had increased power. Iwamura showed broken ZrO2 beads after excess heat release “which suggests very large local heat stress” in the vicinity of those beads.
Excess heat at Kobe and Tohoku had similar output values, with the same level of power and energy were obtained in their reproduction.
In summary, anomalous heat (more than several MJ/mol-H(D)). was observed for all the samples at elevated temperature, except for the Pd-only nanoparticales.
Tatsumi Hioki presented XRD and XAFS Analyses for Metal Nanocomposites Used in
Anomalous Heat Effect Experiments who also presented results on the 16 collaborative experiments performed. The three samples that did not show excess heat, he said were manufactured at a different location than the other 13 samples that did show excess heat. One of the samples provided 25x excess power at 250-350 degrees.
Hioki says the Pd single element nano particel are not good, and did not provide excess. Ni based alloy nano particles fared much better. “Matrix oxide” either ZrO2 or SiO2 was good to use at temperatures of 150-400 degrees C.
He described succeeding in loading nano palladium into zeoloite pores. For one sample, excess heat was over 10 Watts, and maxed at 65 Watts, lasting for 45 days.
For the ZPZ6 sample the nickel to palladium ratio was 10:1. He showed how temperature makes the various phase changes of PNZ6. “Abundant vacancy formation and a high flux hydrogen migration on the surface of Ni based alloy nano particle may enhance the probability of the 4-body H or D fusion reaction as proposed by Akito Takahashi”, says Hioki.
A short break and then Sunwon Park led the first Theory session by introducing Peter Hagelstein and his presentation on Phonon-Mediated Excitation Transfer Involving Nuclear Excitation.
“Is there anything happening in the phonon space that you can actually see?”, asks Hagelstein. “Yes”, he responds, “with excitation transitions”.
He can interpret of energetic nuclear products in low-level nuclear emission from F&P experiment as due to excitation transfer. Also, there are many excitation transfers while maintaining coherence leads to energy exchange.
We have scheduled Hagelstein for a podcast interview this summer, and we’ll get more on this in layman’s terms then. (I hope!)
Science “light” (not) continued with Vladimir Vysottski who discussed Using the Method of Coherent Correlated States for Realization of Nuclear Interaction of Slow Particles with Crystals and Molecules. These theories are highly-mathematical and contain ideas from quantum mechanics such as superposition states and tunneling. Coherent correlated states are thought to allow the tunneling effect to occur, and a reaction to take place. I would suggest readers listen to Vysottski’s podcast and hear what he is talking about yourself.
Continuing on the theory tip was Anthony Zuppero and Thomas Dolan presenting Electron Quasiparticle Catalysis of Nuclear Reactions. He predicated his presentation by saying “this is work done outside of LENR, but contains information of interest to the LENR community”.
Taking two particles, each has a potential. At some point when they are a particular distance, they begin to couple, and an “big” electron is ejected out of the system leaving the reactant in a low-energy state. This mainstream research was published in 2011.
There was a lot more from Zuppero and I have planned a podcast for this summer with these authors to get the lowdown in layman’s terms, so look for that then.
The final paper on theory was given by Norman Cook on The “Renaissance” in Nuclear Physics:
Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions and Transmutations. He started with his Conclusion and worked backwards saying “a new level of spatial detail concerning nuclear structure has become possible” called NLEFT. This is based on work done by Ulf Meissner, et al.
Conventional Lattice QCD is not the same as NLEFT by Meissner, for was awarded the Lise Metner Prize in Nuclear Physics for theoretical work in 2016. New discoveries are incompatible with the Bohr interpretation of QM.
After that, my head was spinning. I wasn’t able to get much video or audio, but I made a lot of contacts for future podcasts to be conducted this summer, and boy do we have line-up. All the scientists are having some drinks and conversation now, and getting ready for tomorrow’s presentations on Heat, Transmutions, Theory, and Rydberg Matter.

Interest in the new generation of breakthrough energy technology is broadening with a surge of participation from young inventors and engineers, artists and writers, coalescing around a core network of promoters in Holland and led by partners Madeline Vilar and Jeroen van Straaten.
With the Global Breakthrough Energy Movement, the duo conjured-up a meeting in Boulder, Colorado with technologists, artists, musicians, philosophers, historians, archeologists, healers, financial advisers, inventors, and engineers from all over globe to talk about the new energy solutions on the horizon that offer a renaissance in human civilization.
The need for transformation, on every level of human existence, begins with energy, and the Global Breakthrough Energy Movement is bringing to light radical new energy generators based on post-modern physics of plasma, magnets, and zero point energy (ZPE).
Who ya gonna believe? Me, or your own eyes?
Talks by some of the leading breakthrough energy scientists spoke to crowds who filled the space to capacity. The momentum for change was powerful. A diverse group formed congruent brainwaves towards a new energy technology that will free humans from a centralized and controlled energy source.
“I think we had about 450 people attending,” said Jeroen. “The response to the conference was overwhelming positive, I know we are on the right way in our vision and it will be bigger and bigger, playing a huge role in waking up people about these technologies.”
Originally to be held at the University of Colorado Boulder, last minute demands from the university for money and attendance guarantees forced the event off-campus to a local hotel. Tents took over the parking lot of the Days Inn operated by owner Darek Zurek, who is sympathetic to the cause.
Co-hosted by Conscious Media Network and Gaiam TV‘s Regina Meredith and Searle Magnetiscs Jason Verbelli, the event was livestreamed at http://new.livestream.com/accounts/5708490. Evening panels were moderated by Mitchell Rabin and Sacha Stone. Both tents held lectures all day, and both programs were videotaped.
Most video from Tent 1 is available and includes lectures by Ruby Carat, David Niebauer, Moray B. King, Dan Winter, Jason Matozzo, Tom Valone, Catherine Austin Fitts, David Martin, Fernando Vossa, Michael Riversong, Steven Ross, James Martinez, Michael Tellinger, Garret Moddel, Mitchell Rabin, and Foster Gamble.
Tent 2 had lectures by Ulf Dahlstrom, New Energy Movement co-founder Joel Garbon, Pure Energy Systems Network Sterling Allan, Mike Upstone, NanoSpire’s Mark LeClair joining Moray B. King, Mark Dansie, Daniel and Erica Nunez, Randy Powell, Mark Brasche, Russ Gries, Richard Dolan, Jamie Janover, Goa Lobaugh, Josh Toms, James Schmidt, and Sam Mason. See Full Program for more.
The Art Tent hosted a collection of paintings, sculpture, prints, and fabrics, steeped in sacred geometry, and future vision. With ancient technology as a ground and breakthrough generators as the figure, musician-writer-archeologist Michael Tellinger put forth a powerful thesis for a lost technology of energy generated from sound, linking ancient South African stone ruins with early Babylonian myth.

A documentary film Take Back Your Power about the so-called “smart meters” that today’s power companies are using to solidify control of your energy usages, showed Friday night. Here are some outtakes of the must-see film:
The second annual Global Breakthrough Energy Movement conference is on schedule to bring energy innovators together from around the world next week in Boulder, Colorado, in spite of the floods that have destroyed parts of the area.
Originally to be held at the University of Colorado Boulder campus, an angel named Darek Zurek has, as they say, “stepped up to the plate”, and a new venue for the event has been announced:
The Days Hotel
5397 South Boulder Road, Boulder, CO 80303
MORE Breakthrough POWER TO YOU, Darek Zurek!
Darek owns the Days Hotel in Boulder, and “has lovingly offered us his entire property, including rooms, restaurant, parking lots and catering at a generous rate.”
“Our team has come together to plan out a more festive event with beautiful tents, art, healing, as well as a premier lineup of global change agents,” says Jeroen van Straaten, co-organizer of the event.
“With such a planetary tribe of focused individuals, nothing can stop the inevitable roll out of Breakthrough Energy technologies.”
van Straaten also says that, “Included in the conference plans are considerations for displaced flood victims and the surrounding city of Boulder. Help us get the word out to all of Colorado and surrounding states: The Global BEM schedule, talks, demonstrations, art, and projects are accelerating this October 10-12 as planned!”
New energy researchers and paradigm-changing architects of our future energy infrastructure will be present to share their successes and challenges in engineering a 21st century global civilization.
Overviews of cold fusion, breakthrough energy technology, and vortex mathematics will give context to updates from researchers in zero point energy (ZPE), magnets, anti-gravity and more exotic energy sciences and technology.
Financial and economic models presented by Catherine Austin Fitts, Mike Waters, and Mike Upstone, focus on crowd-funding mechanisms in support of new energy technologies, and how these resulting breakthroughs will assist global economic recovery and renaissance.
Also speaking will be Joel Gabon, co-author of Breakthrough Energy and New Energy Movement organizer and Sterling Allen of Pure Energy Systems Network, will speak on the recent discoveries in the top exotic technologies, as well as better gauge achievements through standardizing evaluation criteria and engineering benchmarks.
The discoveries of Ken Shoulders and Mark LeClair will be examined by Moray King, and LeClair will join King on Skype for an additional conversation on ZPE and cavitation afterwards.
Veteran insider Tom Valone will be there to survey the energy and propulsion landscape. In 1999, Valone lost a job at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for his part in organizing a conference on cold fusion.
Ruby Carat of Cold Fusion Now will open the conference Thursday morning 10AM inventorying key events in cold fusion history that delayed its success, and the Live Open Science initiative that’s driving momentum for research today. David Niebauer follows, discussing potential scenarios for commercialization of technology based on cold fusion, also called low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), amongst other names.
James Martinez of Cold Fusion Radio will speak on Saturday morning, some of the impending changes built-in to any radical new technology as described by Marshall McLuhan. Writers such as Jeane Manning, environmentalists, engineers, and artists will be speaking and performing a variety of messages about history, technology, and the social implications of disruptive energy technology.
