    Inflation Drives Metals Higher, Looking Forward to Humanity’s “Best Day Ever”

    Weekly Market Commentary 12 November 2021
    by davefairtex

    Sunday, November 14, 2021, 4:50 PM

This week was about inflation; first the PPI (PPIACO) hit on Tuesday: headline +2.04% m/m [24% annualized!], and then the CPI (CPIAUCSL) landed on Wednesday: headline +0.94% m/m [11.28% annualized!] Both numbers were absurd, multi-decade highs.

Hey so about that “transitory inflation” thing – how’s that working again? Inflation expectations still under control? Chair Powell appears desperate to retain his job. Good luck with that. I’m guessing he’ll be replaced with a fellow who likes to print even more.

I suspect that whole “transitory” framing will not age well at all. Fourth Turning – loss of confidence in institutions. First up: NIH/CDC/FDA and “No Treatments For You!” Now its the Fed’s turn at bat: “how we destroyed the middle class by continuing to print money even when inflation jumped to 20%, all the while telling you it was TRANSITORY!”

Wolf has an article on what has happened to prices of used vehicles. It is just insane.

Used Vehicle Wholesale Prices Spiked by the Most Ever in October. Retail Prices to Follow

Here is Wolf’s first chart – he provides a lot more detail in his article. While the PPI is academically interesting, somehow things are more real when you talk about used van prices rising 49.5% y/y.

So how did this mini-torrent of high-inflation news affect prices?

Gold rose +47.83 [+2.63%], breaking out to a new 5-month high. Gold rallied 5 days out of 5 this week. You can see the open interest shot higher also – the banksters are loading up short as price breaks out. Is that the Fed trying to put the breaks on the annoying goldbugs, or is this just an impending wash-and-rinse cycle? Either or both could be true. Gold is in a reasonably strong uptrend at this point. The break above the previous high was a bullish signal too.

Interestingly, gold/Euros [+3.61% – not shown] rallied even harder this week – it broke out to a new 12-month high. Gold/euros uptrend is substantially stronger as well.

While silver did well too [+1.18 +4.81%], just in looking at the chart, silver continues to lag gold. Silver also broke above a previous high. One bright spot is the relative lack of open interest increase. The banksters are not leaning on silver in the same way they are leaning on gold.

The good news is – once silver decides to really start to catch up, it will move very rapidly. A buck a day. Maybe more. But we are not there just yet. Of course if the inflation thing continues – which I suspect it will due to the Fed’s unwillingness to act – this will happen.

Miners were up +6.17% on the week [juniors rose +7.08%]; juniors outperformed seniors, miners did better than both silver & gold. All these are bullish signs for PM overall. Miners are also back above the 200 MA. Finally. Miners have resumed their uptrend.

The master resource fell -0.92%; crude has now moved into a gentle downtrend. Is crude just staging a brief correction prior to making new highs? That’s my guess: a few weeks of decline after which we move even higher. Just a guess.

The 10-year fell fairly sharply this week – rates rose +11 bp to 1.56%. Trend for rates is now pointing higher. Looks like the market is predicting higher long rates ahead.

And last: the buck jumped +0.86% this week, breaking out to a new post-pandemic high. This is why gold/Euros looks so strong – the rally in the buck off the June lows hasn’t seemed to hurt the move higher in gold – at least not much anyway – over that period. And this week, gold rose 5 days out of 5, in spite of the dollar rally. That really underscores gold’s strong performance. Money is flowing both into the buck, and into gold too.

So money is moving into the buck, but out of the 10-year. This is unusual. So US rates may be going higher, but something is wrong in Europe. That’s why money has been leaving since late June. And this week the process accelerated.

PM has also moved back into an uptrend – all the metrics are now positive (gold/silver ratio, GDX/gold, GDXJ/GDX).

Finally, food prices. It was a bad month for food prices: biggest moves – vs last month – were:

  • Oils: +9.65% – a new all time high
  • Cereals: +3.24%
  • Dairy: +2.20%
  • Total: +3.10%

Note this is m/m data. If you annualize these moves – the numbers are huge. Larger than PPIACO, at last for some components.

Here’s what that looks like:

Mostly the bad news is in the “oils” section. Overall, the numbers continue to climb higher, but I don’t think the sky-high price of oils by themselves will cause revolution. That probably requires “cereals” to break out too. Still – terrible news for the working class around the world. Of course if you own a private jet, you may not even notice.

News That Caught My Eye

  • Kyle Rittenhouse – Headline: Kyle is a racist! Crossed state lines with a firearm! Background: all involved in the event were white.  Kyle worked in Kenosha – lived a short-commute away from Kenosha – dad, grandma, aunt, uncle, and cousins live in Kenosha.
  • Insurrection!  Bannon indicted for contempt of Congress!  Orange Man Bad!  We’re gonna get Bad Orange Man for real this time!
  • Poor Harry; boy is it tough to be a woke ex-royal with a netflix deal worth 100 million bucks!

Delhi shuts schools as government considers ‘pollution lockdown’

New Delhi authorities announced Saturday a one-week closure of schools and said they would consider a “pollution lockdown” to protect citizens from toxic smog.

Kejriwal said his government would consider the court’s suggestion after consulting with stakeholders.

“Pollution lockdown has never happened before. It will be an extreme step,” he said.

Kejriwal said that construction activity would be halted for four days to cut down dust from vast, open sites.

Call it “Four Days to Slow The Spread.”

Capturing Regulators = Fantastic ROI:

Controversial Alzheimer’s drug accounts for half of Medicare B premium hike

The new Part B premium will be $170.10 a month for 2022, officials said. The jump of $21.60 [per month!] is the biggest increase ever in dollar terms, although not percentage-wise. As recently as August, the Medicare Trustees’ report had projected a smaller increase of $10 from the current $148.50.

The agency is probing whether officials in the agency met with representatives of Biogen, which makes Aduhelm, before the approval. The drug generated $1.6 million revenue for the Swiss drug maker in June alone, but is projected to bring in billions as more doctors prescribe the drug.

Another captured-regulator Oligarchy win, paid for by You and Me!  Does the drug work?  Of course not!  Yay FDA!


Inflation is surging and people are hopping mad

Heating oil prices have soared 59% in the last year.

“Before, you’d go to the store, and if you had $100, you could buy four bags of groceries and be happy,” says Nick Apodiakos. “Now, you’re lucky to get a bag. Milk, orange juice, eggs. Plus the oil for the house, the water bills. It’s just crazy. It’s so much money. How is somebody supposed to survive?”

Nick Apodiakos wonders why the Biden administration isn’t doing more, even if the White House’s options are limited.

“I think that the White House is not focused as much on the things that the people need,” he says.

“I understand that climate change is an important thing,” he says, nodding to another administration priority. “Focus on climate change but also focus on price change.”

Of course, if you can fly your private jet to COP26, you don’t need to worry about “inflation.”  Unlike middle class wage-earners or pensioners, the private-jet-equipped Oligarchy own assets (property, equities, collectibles) that will keep pace with the rising prices without difficulty.  So they don’t care.  They don’t have to!

And in fact – first lockdowns, and now inflation appear to be wealth transfer mechanisms from the middle class to the trans-national asset-owning Oligarchy.  Once is happenstance.  Twice is coincidence.

You’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happy!  “Climate Change!”  Yay private jets & wealth transfers!


So it turns out, parts of Europe are having a massive new COVID outbreak.  What is going on?

Horowitz: Is Europe getting crushed by variant completely immune to COVID shots?

…according to a new study, Europe is likely experiencing a wave of a new variant that is completely immune to all the shots, a wave that will make anyone in the U.S. who has not experienced prior infection and does not have a plan for early treatment susceptible to serious illness.

Ironically, Austria’s Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg threatened the unvaccinated with a lockdown if cases continue to rise, even though they are likely rising because the vaccine created viral immune escape….

Latvia bans unvaccinated lawmakers from voting, docks pay

The ban on unvaccinated MPs in parliament was necessary to promote public confidence in the government’s policies to control COVID-19 infections, the legislation’s sponsor, lawmaker Janis Rancans, was cited as saying by the parliamentary press service.

Source

So is this new variant really “completely immune to all the shots?”  Here’s the study referred to by Horowitz:

https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.11.01.21265749v1.full.pdf

The study is a masterpiece of technical jargon and deliberately understated presentation.  The authors appear to go out of their way to downplay the elephant in the room.  There are a few key lines.  This one: “These experiments showed a decrease of neutralization sensitivity for B.1.1.7_S+, which carries two extra spike mutations D138Y and A701V, compared to the other two B.1.1.7 variants B.1.1.7_O and B.1.1.7_S of around 3.2-fold (Fig. 5B)”

They even used a log scale to make the results look visually less significant.

I’ll try to translate:

When the authors applied spike antibodies from Pfizer-double-vaxxed people onto cells infected by the 3 different variants, the cells infected by the B117_S+ variant required 3.2x more antibodies (or 3.2x less dilution) to neutralize the variant (that’s “ID50” – “serum dilution required for 50% virus inhibition”) relative to the other 2 variants.  This highly technical description would seem to suggest a vaccine-antibody efficacy drop of – a factor of 3.2 vs B117_S+.

So maybe the new variant is not “completely immune” to vax-generated antibodies as Horowitz suggests, but – B117_S+ sure does appear (in vitro) to be able to substantially (3.2x) evade Pfizer-vax generated antibodies.  In vitro.

So what does this all mean?  My guess:

  1. Europe will probably have a difficult low-vitamin-D season.
  2. This (probably) explains the dollar rally/Euro decline in the face of massive US inflation numbers.   Money is fleeing Europe in anticipation.  Big Money doesn’t give two shits about MSM propaganda.  They follow facts & data.  Who wants to lose real money?  Not them.
  3. Europe is going to try to force-vaccinate its way out of a SC2 wave dominated by vaccine-escape variant B117_S+.  Because, “science!!”
  4. This B117_S+ variant will reach the US at some point, and it will infect the vaxxed-but-not-yet-infected US population that did not get a “top-up” infection from Delta.  During low-vitamin-d season, perhaps?  I’m not sure.  A clue: the US just resumed travel from “vaccinated” European travelers this week.  What perfect timing – it is almost as if they want to drive sales of – say – paxlovid/molnupiravir.  Or something.

“It’s the pills’ turn at bat?”

And the official US response: it appears as though the CDC is starting to tiptoe quietly away from “herd immunity via vaccination.”

CDC shifts pandemic goals away from reaching herd immunity

…experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have set aside herd immunity as a national goal.

The prospects for meeting a clear herd-immunity target are “very complicated,” said Dr. Jefferson Jones, a medical officer on the CDC’s COVID-19 Epidemiology Task Force.

“Thinking that we’ll be able to achieve some kind of threshold where there’ll be no more transmission of infections may not be possible,” Jones acknowledged last week to members of a panel that advises the CDC on vaccines.

Vaccines have been quite effective at preventing cases of COVID-19 that lead to severe illness and death, but none has proved reliable at blocking transmission of the virus, Jones noted. Recent evidence has also made clear that the immunity provided by vaccines can wane in a matter of months.

The result is that even if vaccination were universal, the coronavirus would probably continue to spread.

“We would discourage” thinking in terms of “a strict goal,” he said.

Source

Note this is from the CDC, via the LA Times, talking about shots not blocking transmission, along with the waning of immunity “in a matter of months!”

What was “horrid vaccine disinformation” that got you removed from Twitter last week, is now “science from the Trusted News Initiative” this week.

And for those who prefer a one-minute video:

Just in time for the Unity Project to appear on the scene:

IRVINE, Calif. (Nov. 12, 2021) – A coalition of concerned parents, business leaders, teachers and other professionals throughout California have founded The Unity Project in opposition to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s plan to impose a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on the state’s K-12 students once the Federal Drug Administration fully authorizes vaccines for this age group.

The Unity Project stands in opposition to:

  • Forcing children as young as five-years-old to effectively become human shields, assuming vaccine-injury-risk despite having statistically zero risk of COVID-19 to those who are healthy, just so adults with comorbidities can feel safer — what kind of a society does that?  At no time in history have we put children in harm’s way to protect adults.
  • Stripping risk/benefit discretion from parents with a novel vaccine for children, which, if healthy, are at statistically greater risk of the seasonal flu than COVID-19.
  • Illogical, unscientific, top-down, one-size-fits-all carte blanche mandates for healthy children that directly contradict the current body of evidence and data.

Now that’s pretty good timing.

Some of you might have seen my forum post on how the 5th Circuit upheld the stay on President Grandpa’s OSHA Vax Mandate; if not –  according to the 5th circuit, the mandate was assessed as “staggeringly overbroad”:

https://www.peakprosperity.com/forum-topic/appeals-court-stay-upheld-mandate-staggeringly-overbroad/

Robert Malone takes the next step, and sees a monster windfall coming for independent lawyers:

I predict that the failure of the Biden vax mandates will eventually lead to huge legal liability for companies and academic institutions – illegal termination, vaccine damages, etc. This will also be a major financial windfall for independent lawyers.

What does this have to do with Biden’s mandates? Because if they fail in the courts, then the legal topcover for the academic institutions, hospitals, and businesses vanish. Government and Pharma are indemnified. So then the organizations become the bagholders for liability.  [emphasis added]

Source

This would be a very, very big deal – generational wealth earned by the lucky independent attorneys.  Biggest liability overhang in the history of the world.  Makes the Big Tobacco cases look penny-ante.  The Round-Up cases – a rounding error.  So to speak.

And the big firms have taken themselves out of the fight, since they’re all working for Pharma so they’re conflicted out.  Big Firm gets their hourly rate, while the independent attorneys get contingency fees from the biggest cases in generations.

And finally, the Big Picture, from two perspectives:

First, Robert Malone again:

In “following the money” back to the massive pool of extra-national capital controlled by the four main interlaced investment funds, I think/hypothesize we can now better understand the last few US presidencies, and Biden in particular. US Presidents are effectively emasculated.

US Presidents and other western “leaders” are basically “owned” by the large funds. They are beholden to their financial masters, and those masters represent blocks of capital which are decoupled from the historic nation state. Basically, the “nation state” is now obsolete.

These funds select the “leaders” that are then spoon fed to us via legacy media which is controlled by the funds. They are able to find people for whom “power” and status are more important than integrity, and then successfully market them to us.

And they treat us like cattle or sheep because that is how we behave. Sorry to be so negative, but this is what the current situation is revealing and teaching me.

Please wake up. It is our only hope. Stop being a sheep. Get the facts. Think for yourself.

Source

Malone calls the problem “extra-national capital.”  I call the problem The Oligarchy.  We both want everyone to wake up.

    CDC is starting to tiptoe quietly away from “herd immunity via vaccination.”

    China still thinks it can be done with better jabs - found this article:

    Zero chance for China’s zero-Covid aim now virus has adapted, Sars expert says

    • ‘No chance if we set a goal to eliminate all Covid-19 cases’, because virus has foothold and ‘will stay with us for the long term’, Guan Yi says
    • Country should find out population’s antibody level after vaccination and how long it lasts, not obsess about testing to identify cases, he argues
    • “If a vaccine is not effective, we should remove it [from the vaccination programme]. If we don’t have sufficient understanding … we don’t have the [chance] to make improvements, especially when vested interests are involved,” he said, in a veiled reference to pharmaceutical firms.”” 
    • “Guan said it was difficult for scientists from different countries to cooperate to build a global surveillance network similar to the one for flu, because of tension between nations and politicising of research.”

    It’s ironic that it is highly likely that the jabs are responsible for the rapid mutation in the S1 spike.

    Epigenetics

    @ 16 minutes of your video, "can the gene therapy effect the genes".

    My response.

    Epigenetics says that information flows from the outside of the cell towards the genes. Ref: Dr. Bruce Lipton.
    So yes, the RNA can and does affect the genes.
    Besides, the results of evolutionary design are not intuitive.

    Oh Dave, you’re such an optimist!

    US society, and its government and court system, as currently configured, cannot bring justice from this miserable set of interlocking pathologies. Something very dramatic will have to happen to install the mechanism and values necessary to address this mess and defeat it in “battle.” (Think WWII followed by Nuremberg.) But that “something dramatic” may be powerful enough to install something even more evil than what we have now. (Think: TheGreat Reset, CBDC’s, and a one-world government centered on the Eye of Sauron.) I suggest we all gird our loins for battle.

    oh yeah

    Yes.  I'm an optimist.  That's because I didn't live in the belly of the beast for decades the way you did.  🙂

    If we don't keep the goal in mind, we risk just getting lost in the swamp chasing our own tail, and the Oligarchy will lead us by the nose to our doom.   Probably by dividing us along some manufactured-divisive-crisis lines.  That's what they do best.

    The usual formula: lots of us + few of them = we just need to unite.  It helps that it is also true.  Once we unite - no need for any loin-girding.  It will all be over in seconds.  99:1 means they tip over the king and resign.  Metaphorically speaking.

    The goal: end the Oligarchy's Conservatorship of the Plebes.

    But we need to unite.

    Big fan of Bruce Lipton.  I do wonder how much epigenetic effect the "lockdown/panic" will have on the human race.  It won't be small.

    Thanks.  I can't take credit.  Mostly this stuff writes itself.  Hard to explain.

    We’re unlikely to end the oligarchy. However, following drastic events, oligarchy replacement may occur and with changes the Pareto index, for the better or the worse.

    DNA

    Dr Been had a study from Sweden showing the vaccine spike, as well as the virus spike, affect the cells ability to recombine once damaged.  This is huge.  Add to that Dr. Malone's and Dr. Vanden Bossche's warnings about immune escape and I see a very dark horizon.  I guess the up side is these bastards can not buy their way out of what they have done to the rest of us.  We will go together, regardless. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SYL-iU0E9Q&t=2s&ab_channel=DrbeenMedicalLectures

    Inflation and hedge fund shorts

    It seems to me, the inflation and the hedge fund shorts are at odds with one another. I think the WSB crowd will see their favorite investment capital groups behave even more desperately... and that should release silver from that stranglehold.

    An Epic weekly review Dave!

    Malone calls the problem “extra-national capital.” I call the problem The Oligarchy. We both want everyone to wake up.

    As another poster stated, you are weaving especially coherent big picture tales.. please keep it up.  Excellent stuff!

    It's really instructive to recognize the awakenings of folks like Campbell and Malone.  Recall when Malone was first thrust onto the scene in his interview by Bret Weinstein, alongside Steve Kirsch.  He was a bit of a deer in the headlights relative to the holy passion against the narrative that Kirsch already held, but Malone was already clearly sensing that something unethical was happening.  Now Dr. Malone is not only 100% on board with the scientific truth, he is probing into the geopolitics, the oligarchy, and the mass psychosis affecting the sheeple.  He has walked a path that it took me over a decade to cover in the stretch of 6-months!

    In the last two days he has been tweet storming like never before;

    I Also Deeply Value The Big Picture

    Thank you so much Dave!  For me my resilience increases when I have some sense of the big picture.  Otherwise, I tend to react to every small perturbation.  This was especially true for me in the early days of learning about the decline of the US.  I could easily go to doomsday places.  The big picture, even while grim at times, helps me stay more centered.

    it depends

    The Oligarchy has put an incredible amount of wood behind the arrow of mass vaccination.  If it turns out poorly...and it turns out they knew all along...or it was actually a plan...

    I can't provide timing, but I can see directional outcomes based just on how much credibility & effort they've placed on this vax campaign.  Its a Newton's Law thing.  If you fire a large force at a large number of people, the pushback will end up being equally large.

    The big unknown is: just how bad are the shots?  And when did they know?

    I really think the revolutionary thing will be free energy.  Without it, we really will just exchange one Oligarchy for another.  Centralized energy production is a huge axis of control.  No energy = no civilization.  Those who control the powerplants and fossil fuel distribution control the world.

    Guy named Rockefeller comes to mind.

    That's why, when we think of resilience, one of our first things to focus on is "off grid power generation."

    [edit]

    Thanks for the kind words.  I agree, Malone is on fire.  In his own, understated way.  Which is perfect.  And it has just taken - as you say - maybe six months.

    It is to the point now where, if the power structure wants us to do something, I just assume there's a catch.  We really are in a conservatorship run by a bunch of narcissistic sociopaths.

    malone interview

    Dr. Robert Malone: They’re Rushing Into Killing Children




    * Malone lays out the whole "Event 201" battle plan - executed by Fauci & crew without regard to the details on the ground.  Disease wasn't that bad, but they went ahead with the plan as though it was.

    * Pfizer added heart attack drug to children's vaccine formulation (a "buffer")

    * brokeback mountain meme: 24:39 (OMG!)

    * "the government is profoundly corrupt - they are off the reservation - they don't care about the law"

    * Malone is involved in the Unity Project...it has major funding behind it, there is a lot of very wealthy individuals, and they are both from the far left, and the right, coming together and they are mad as hell about what Gavin Newsom is doing in California.

    * he is quite angry about how they took his industry and corrupted it.

    And more.

    I really think the revolutionary thing will be free energy.

    Dave,

    Is this something you have read about or have you come up with on your own by connecting the dots?    What could it be?

    Euro is just getting crushed.  Its that vax-immune-escape variant, I think.

    Vaccines!  Safe & Effective!  Lock down the anti-vaxxers!

    Dr Campbell shines

    He is so brilliant, too, in his "conversion" -- not so outspoken as Dr Malone but oh so sharp tiny little darts in that understated British fashion. He's now interviewing the vaccine-injured, fact-checking BBC articles (giving one a 6 out of 10 grade), making barbed comments about going to a journalist to get expert advice on his health, asking openly "why aren't we using fluvoxamine? And Ivermectin?", and doing a whole program on how Africa is doing just fine, thank you, without any "vaccines". Almost every program now he does something. And yes, he is more supportive of the vaccines than others are, but still, he has come a long way and it is beautiful to see. He wants to interview Eric Clapton, folks! Is there a way we can make this happen?

    Weekly Market Commentary

    Dave, Your Weekly Market Commentary is everything that ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, NPR, CNN, WAPO, NYT, LA TIMES, and yes FOX NEWS isn't.   There wouldn't be the polarized citizen vs citizen that the government and media intentionally sowed through the false narrative.  It didn't have to be this way.  I appreciate your efforts in compiling this information.  It matters; it means a lot!  Thanks, Michael from Oregon.

    He was very, very late to the game.  You had to be otherwise previously awakened to save your immune system from the jab and know to protect yourself by other means like the procurement in advance of Ivermectin.  I had my first prescriptions for HCQ and IVM by May 2020 thanks to the discussions HERE at PeakProsperity.

    I had stopped watching Dr. Campbell as I didn’t think he’d ever connect the dots. It’s so refreshing to see that he finally did, his sarcasm is priceless

    This expands their “lockdowns are normal” agenda. Delhi is showing us all that it’s perfectly normal for a government to shut down society for any reason at all—not just infectious diseases. The powers behind the CBC apparently liked that.

    malone interview

    You know, for all the talk about facts, logical arguments and data, sometimes what is most powerful is an overt statement, stripped of emotion or any other baggage.   Like in the movies where someone gets comedically slapped in the face to get them to look at whats happening in front of them.

    Dr Malone's deadpan comment that a lot of children will die - have to die - to snap us out of this has been making me feel a little sick all day.  I haven't felt scared very often during the last two years but today it's creeping in.

    I know he's right.  And I know TPTB know it too and they are doing it anyway.

    free energy

    I don't have any specifics on free energy tech - just a persistent bunch of stories that look a whole lot like "Ivermectin" in retrospect in the way they've been downplayed and suppressed.

    Ultimately - those flying saucers aren't powered by diesel.

    And if the Oligarchy wants to remain in charge, this tech - absolutely must be suppressed.

    So its stories + deduction.

    What powers those flying saucers?  That's my question.  We have an existence proof of some sort of very powerful, compact, and long-lived energy source.

    Once we get it, the Oligarchy goes away.  For the most part.  They can't control us any longer.  That's the deduction.  Therefore, it must be suppressed.  Like ivermectin.

    Perhaps they frame this (internally) as a "greater good" thing.  After all, if some idiot flies around the solar system, and ends up dropping an asteroid on the earth either by accident or on-purpose, it could be unfortunate.

    We Don't Need Aliens for Free Power

    We humans already have the ability to produce essentially unlimited, almost free power in the form of the LFTR, Liquid Flouride Thorium Reactor. Invented at Oak Ridge, a prototype was built and ran very successfully from 1965 to 1969. The scientists were enthusiastic about its potential as a source of electrical energy, but the LFTR did not produce weapons grade plutonium for bombs, so the military shut down the LFTR experiment and dismantled the prototype.

    The advantages of LFTR are many and overwhelming compared to the dangerous pressurized water cooled uranium reactors we have as a result of the military decision. The LFTR operates at ambient pressure and cannot melt down. Thorium is four times more abundant than uranium and the LFTR burns 99% of its fuel compared to only 1% of uranium consumed. This vastly superior fuel use means we have enough thorium to last for hundreds of years. The Thorium reactor can even convert existing uranium waste into fuel for its own use and use it's waste heat to produce Hydrogen fuel for automobiles and aircraft.

    Japan and France are working on Thorium reactors. At least one US company, FLIBE Energy, is too. However, the US government doesn't seem to be interested.

    thorium

    Yes I recall reading about thorium.  But that's still mostly-centralized power generation.  I agree it too was suppressed.  Probably too effective.  And a small city could get one, rather than requiring a monstrously large company with a million safety regulations.

    I want something that fits into a vehicle.  Or a home.

    Not saying "we need aliens to give it to us" - I'm saying that aliens are proof that such a thing exists.

    posting links to interviews

    So nudge - something I've noticed.  When someone posts a link to an interview, but only posts the link, it isn't compelling to me.  When they post a list of subjects that were discussed in the interview, it lets me sort out for myself if the things discussed are worth my time.

    So you have a choice.  1) Post a slew of links, with zero context.  The uptake will be tiny.  [Then when someone else posts the same link, and a summary, and they get greater uptake - you might end up feeling annoyed and ignored.]

    2) Post fewer links, with a list of things in each link, giving people reason and motivation to listen - or not - depending on their interest level in the topics.

    #2 requires more effort, but the uptake will be much higher.

    You can, of course, do what you like.  But if you want to maximize impact, I suggest you provide a summary of the video being posted.

    "Why should I watch this 1-hour video again?"

    If Wishes Were Horses, Beggars Would Ride

    Dave,

    If you want an infinite power source that fits into a vehicle, then aliens are your best bet. However, in the present circumstances, thorium is clearly an odds-on favorite.

    Any proper analysis of the energy predicament clearly shows that there is NO other realistic way to generate enough energy to keep up with demand. The much vaunted fusion reactor is still a pipe dream. Whereas a working thorium reactor is just an engineering project away.

    I believe thorium reactors are scaleable and a reactor for every town is a genuine possibility.  Distributed energy generation would be fabulous.

    the NTFY model

    I would encourage you to use No Treatments For You as a general model for "disagreeable innovation suppression", rather than as a one-off event.

    I suspect Thorium research has been suppressed using the NTFY suppression model.  So "the chinese are working on it?"  Like the NIH is studying Ivermectin as a cure for COVID19?

    I suspect if we eliminate the Oligarchy, lots of stuff will start to appear.  Niacin is one tiny example.  Properly used, niacin might well just cut the alzheimers incidence in half.  Maybe more.

    But The Oligarchy really likes NAD+ deficiency.  Its the root cause of a huge number of profitable, and life-shortening disease states.  So it must remain in place.

    Back to Thorium.  It is a fine technology.  There's a reason it was suppressed - axis of control issues.  Nothing to do with nuclear bombs.  With Thorium, all the small resource-colony countries could become relatively wealthy and independent.  Big nuclear plants are too unwieldy for the little countries.  Not every place has coal or natgas.  So - Thorium = way too dangerous.  If the small countries were independent and self-sufficient, they could escape the resource colony fate.  So Thorium had to be axed.

    China knows this too.  Big powers don't want the little powers to be wealthy and self-sufficient on their own.  If that happens, they wouldn't be poor and desperate enough to jump at being resource colonies.  That would be bad.  For China.  And the West.

    So, Thorium is being "worked on."

    That's just how they do it.  The Oligarchy.

    I think a lot of things will appear once they are gone.

    Free energy (which I should probably call "above-unity") will appear too, I think.

    Yes, I know.  Free energy is just a tinfoil-hat-nutjob conspiracy theory.

    Kinda like that Horse Dewormer that some stupid, deplorable, Trumpists think is a COVID cure.

    Amirite?

    Reply to Dave #14

    Dave said - The Oligarchy has put an incredible amount of wood behind the arrow of mass vaccination.  If it turns out poorly...and it turns out they knew all along...or it was actually a plan...

    I can't provide timing, but I can see directional outcomes based just on how much credibility & effort they've placed on this vax campaign.  Its a Newton's Law thing.  If you fire a large force at a large number of people, the pushback will end up being equally large.

    Yes, this strikes a chord with me. No battle plan survives contact with the enemy - I think it was Robert Malone that recently used this old adage to highlight how tptb have completely failed to adjust their approach based on actual outcomes. They have stuck to their plan regardless and keep doubling down to the point of absurdity. Poor tactics.

    A couple more diverse threads to weave into the picture

    1. For politicians popularity (or lack of) is one thing but absolute loathing is quite another. For example the approval rating of our NZ prime minister Ardern is plunging but still a respectable 39%.

    However there is also, for the first time, a small but significant chunk of the population that absolutely hate her, that hold her in utter contempt, that genuinely want to see her dead - whether that be through legal means like a crimes against humanity trial or simply a public lynching. To me this is a new phenomenon. There are many ways this could precipitate into action and it needs to be factored into the equation.

    2. I'm not certain  but I suspect plausable deniability for the elites is pretty much gone - particularly if we're at the start of "the greatest disaster in medical history" as Dr Peter McCullough believes.  It is one thing for those responsible to escape personal legal culpability. It is another to escape retribution if the system comes apart. I'm inclined to think the beast has entered the room and stands revealed. There is no going back for the oligarchy "People of privilege will always risk their complete destruction rather than surrender any material part of their advantage" John Kenneth Galbraith

    CDC is starting to tiptoe quietly away from “herd immunity via vaccination.” Pt2

    Looks like the CDC wants the world locked in an endless cycle of boosters & restrictions until the unattainable goal of ‘herd immunity’ is reached:

    Disappointing lack of ‘herd immunity’ despite high antibody prevalence & vaccination, as cases in Europe soar & hospitals reach full capacity….

    Percentage of population tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies in the week beginning 18 October 2021 (over 18s):

    93.1% in England

    91.7% in Wales

    90.9% in Northern Ireland

    92.5% in Scotland

    No Thorium For You!

    I must admit, the NTFY model explains a lot. I could never understand why such an obviously essential resource as the LFTR was not being developed with all possible speed. I guess I'm just not cynical enough.

    No Thorium For You

    That's what NTFY stands for!

    Seriously, I think you are right.  I don't think free energy is a thing, but I do think you are correct about thorium suppression.  I wouldn't bet the farm on no free energy but it goes against too much of what I know about physics and engineering.

    I do think there's lots of evidence that both China and Russia are much closer to the WEF / oligarchy crowd than most people think.  It's evidenced in both playing along with the vaccine game rather than going all in on IVM like parts of India.  Putin and Xi are very smart people and are surrounded by smart people.  They have to know what's happened in Utar Pradesh yet they haven't made it policy in either country.

    Free Energy Suppression

    I came across the suppression in my UFO studies. It always comes back to the occult.

    Dr. Steven Greer (Disclosure Project) helped bring all kinds of testimonies to the public consciousness back in 2001. I now understand that The Disclosure Project was a modified limited hangout.

    I dug in. Greer was threatening free energy inventors and their projects. They would swoop in, offer financing, then shut it down, or waste away all the productive energy behind the project.

    Greer was honey-pot'd I believe. Further investigation lead to his Manhunt account under the name DCmusclewolf. This evidence has been erased from the internet (but I still have it!).

    All the while this guy is schlepping $2500 "Ambassador to the Universe" training. Where they use Ayurvedic rituals to communicate with "extraterrestrials" (CE4).

    Laughing all the way to the bank, he conjures up "UFOs" for these rubes.

    And he keeps producing ET documentaries, talking about free energy suppression.
    Trust me, this shark is just polluting the waters.

    Dave, you should check this film out. Mark died from a shotgun blast to the face last year.

    Youse guys are just too nice.

    The object is world depopulation- gettit?

    The reason that we don't use any of a plethora of energy options is because, with more energy, more babies are made.

    I heard tell somewhere that farmers were being paid 130% the value of their crops to destroy them. And what is food? Energy to make more babies.

    And why is the nuclear family being destroyed? Take a wild guess.

    My best model is that we are an artificial species. (Come on, have a go. What caused the Great Encephalization and the sudden onset of civilization?) We were created to replace whoever came before us, and now we, in our turn, are being replaced.

    That's it, in a nutshell.

    So what have you got?

    i think the hypothesis is wrong

    So what have you got?

    Well, the "West" has more energy, and has fewer babies = a lower birthrate.  Look at Germany and Japan.  Perfect examples.  So if you really wanted a lower birthrate, you'd increase standards of living.

    And yet...that's not what happens.

    Therefore, its about something else.  I claim: its about maintaining central control.  All power sources must be Large Corps.  All transport (auto, airplane mfg, airlines, etc).  All communications: (telcos, ISPs).  Search: (google).  Social: (instagram, twitter).  Pharma: (drugs, NIH/FDA/CDC).  Power (utility companies).  I could go on.  All these entities are owned by Blackrock/Vanguard.

    Central control.  Not birth control.

    How To Get Ahead

    Edit: Do you think owning Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies will save you from the long arm of redistribution? Here's an article from ZeroHedge that shows the opening salvo that will track the cryptos when spent. Right now, the threshold is $10K. Any bets that it will come down over time?

    https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/senators-seek-amend-bitcoin-reporting-changes-infrastructure-bill

    In September, a tax change introduced in the infrastructure bill would require U.S. persons receiving over $10,000 in bitcoin and cryptocurrency to report the sender’s personal information to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), extending the provisions of section 6050I that currently only apply to cash transactions.

    “Our bill makes clear that the new reporting requirements do not apply to individuals developing blockchain technology and wallets,” Wyden said in a statement, per the report.

    “This will protect American innovation while at the same time ensuring those who buy and sell cryptocurrency pay the taxes they already owe.”

    Not an East vs West thing.

    richcabot: "I do think there's lots of evidence that both China and Russia are much closer to the WEF / oligarchy crowd than most people think.

    I agree. The networks pulling the strings in the West, are also pulling the strings in China & Russia etc. Anyone who still thinks this is an East vs West thing has not being paying close attention... This is an attack on the global population by the power elites. Petty patriotism & tribal loyalties - plays right into their narrative.

    The real Revolutionary thing will be Freeing Ourselves from their Mind Control!

    Free, or very low cost energy, for everyone, anytime, and anywhere, will be the consequence of our braking the "Oligarchy or Kleptocracy" vice grip over all of our minds.

    Free our Minds and thus take back control over our own world and destiny and fate from these evil, sick, and demented sociopaths and psychopaths!

    Everything all starts with your own self and own will and own consent or dissent.

    Free energy (or almost free energy) has been known to exist for many decades.

    The craft that people have seen since the end of World War Two, erroneously attributed to ET aliens as a "cover story", were all developed originally by German scientists and then later by those brought over in "Operation Paperclip"  to work on those and the Saturn Five rocket that put the USA first on the moon. The Apollo Project was a cover for those other craft that went far beyond the moon. It is a electro-magnetic drive that creates a time vortex around the craft, negating both gravity and wind resistance, and enabling sharp turns all without harming the pilots and/or passengers.

    The video of the "aurora around the craft" imaged by the infrared camera of a navy jet, clearly shows this "bubble".

    This super advanced technology has been contained by the Oligarchy/MIC/Kleptocracy to keep control over all of us plebes for as long as they deem necessary and expedient.

    You’re Noisy

    I really think Nudge’s obnoxious posting of memes adds value to this site, and obviously exhibits signs of unique, original thought. I especially enjoy his repetitious posting of links with zero commentary. /s

    So much /s

    Nudge, You’re just noise.

    One man's noise is another's music.

    If you don't like the music, or the noise, then just change the channel?

    Memes can be both amusing, and be true, just like a cliche!

    Cliches Are the Epitome of Kitsch

    A cliche is a rhetorical/narrative device that has been used to the point of being useless…because people have grown tired of it’s repetitive use.

    It’s power becomes diluted because of it’s lack of originality. That’s called kitsch.

    Thanks for the feedback….unless you’re just Nudge on one of his throwaway coward accounts.

    True, but, I'd take any cliche over kitsch, or just schlocky German, anyday!

    The main point still remains true.

    If you can't stand the heat, just get out of the kitchen. 😀

    You can't please all the people all the time.

    I enjoy the diversity of thought I find on the forums. Both Nudges and Steven's.

    Keep them coming.

    Thanks for attacking my model Dave. Let us assume that we are somebody's creation, How would we anticipate their plans, any more than cattle can predict what we will be doing to them?

    Their model might derive from the observation that we convert 10 units of energy into 1 unit of energy on the end of our chopsticks. 10:1 ratio. Therefore, to them denying us energy would correlate to starving us out. (That does not preclude the Jab , of cause.)

    Diversity of thought is what creates a more inclusive atmosphere in forums.

    Quite unlike "cancel culture" and the censorship so prevalent in most other venues.

    Freedom of political speech is a requirement of all truly free people verses being just slaves and vassels and just subjects of any state.

    The First Amendment to our Bill of Rights is thus for a very good reason, first!

    Going to poo-poo free energy again

    I know Ive done it before but I feel the need;

    It just goes against the very foundation of reality that I have studied and observed my whole life. You cant get something for nothing. There is no example, anywhere in the  known world of something for nothing. It exists completely and exclusively in the minds of daydreamers.

    If such a thing were to be discovered, it would not only provide free energy, it would turn everything we know about reality, nature, the universe, science, physics, and life itself on it's head. If there were even one example that somebody could point to somewhere of 'something for nothing' existing even at the microbial level, I could concede it might be a thing.

    As of now there is zero evidence, zero rationale and zero examples anywhere in existence of free energy being possible. Its just not the way this universe appears to work.

    Heat

    I am the heat.
    I enjoy challenges.

    Keep trying, though. Somebody, someday may feel challenged by that dumb shit.

    P.S. I like diversity of opinions. Even abjectly fucking stupid ones. As I’ve said before, in every pile of shit lies a nugget of gold.

     

    I’m not going anywhere.

    PS. Did you know that light is red-shifted when it passes through an ionized gas? This has been known since the sixties. And there is a Lot of Ionized Gas in the cosmos. But still the astronomers insist in using redshift as a measure of relative velocities.

    Don't rest on your laurels. Break through the pain barrier. There is a lot of fun to be had on the other side.

    brushog examples of free energy

    Brush,  virtually all energy is free.  Its just a matter of how the corporations and governments wants to stick themselves in between you and it.

    Does someone need to manufacturer coal? or was it made by the planet we live on, completely passive of our existence?  getting energy from coal is as simple as picking up and putting a match to it.  I wouldn't say that is not free.  it is.  Only for those that inherited the earth, can they sell the earth to those who haven't  The exact same can be said for a log or wood.  Completely free energy.  ( thanks to the sun, yet again completely free)    However, if solar was our only energy source directly, I am sure TPTB , would be happy to make clouds and charge you for what they capture and will pass to you.    Oil is free, except they who inherited the earth have claimed it.   Hydro power is free kenetic energy from natural rain processes.   It is completely passive on our part.  They who have inherited the earth yet again stick themselves in the process, damning water from you.. and using  and charging it back to you.  there is also chemical energy.  Simply free from what nature provides.  But , once again, someone seem to inherit what belongs to all of us.   I would say all energy is free.  its just not free to you.

    As of now there is zero evidence, zero rationale and zero examples anywhere in existence of free energy being possible. Its just not the way this universe appears to work.

    So what do you think powers those UFO spacecraft?

    Pratt & Whitney?  Do they fill up the tank on the back side of the moon at the 76 station?   Or ... maybe it is something else?

    Dunno myself.  I just know - the power source they have is not something our science can explain.  I'm perfectly fine to say: "I don't know what I don't know."

    Perhaps some of the fine people here can talk about the various technologies they've heard about.  I haven't gone down the rabbit hole far enough - but all those little tic-tacs flying around - assuming they exist (which I believe they do) - they aren't using JP4.  That's just common sense.

    Supposedly some Russian once said about the atomic bomb - once we knew the Americans had built one and it worked, it was much, much easier for us to build one ourselves.  All you really need to know to get you going: it can be done.

    let`s cut the crap

    Youve been nudged made an evidence-free conclusory statement that  "The networks ...are also pulling the strings in China & Russia etc. " Anyone who has been to China or Russia or has any knowledge of those places knows that they have their own virtual reality media which is rather diametrically opposed to the "networks" in the US.  There is absolutely no evidence or rationale presented for this flippant remark.

    Please stop the horseshit.

    This blog site is unique because we can come here and get truth, honed by simple observation (ie evidence) combined with open minded review by people with high experience.  PhDs in biology for example pick apart stupid statements about viruses, vaccines etc.

    Please avoid empty headed sloganeering, or unsupported conspiracy notions thrown out as some kind of brain excrement.  If you are going to make a sweeping statement that the American media control China and Russia, you need to provide evidence or else shut your keyboard.  I request that you provide evidence of your conspiracy theory or else get the hell out of here.

    I dont have time to read all this empty headed evidence-free crap, including evidence-free notions about buying meat from the store that responds to magnets (is that a troll?) 5G radiation causing cancer, free energy from putting two wires in the air enough to power your refrigerator (yes, Tesla was correct: there is free energy from the earth, about 100000 times too little to run an LED) chemtrails etc.

    Is it possible for the managers of this blog site to create an inner group that can re-focus on truth searching activities?  There seems to be a lot of immature keyboarding crap recently.  I understand the need to increase viewership, which inter alia provides additional revenue to improve quality of the service.

    I also understand that people get frustrated and need to let off steam by keyboarding chit chat crap, but can we put that somewhere else?  Can we have a mirror site where people who focus on discovered reality (evidence and discussion-rational thought thereon) can communicate?  Maybe a comments section for paid subscribers?

    As this site gets bigger there is more and more crap to wade through generated from those who are understandably upset and bestow their brain burps via quick conclusory keyboarding quips for confirmation or perhaps to feel good.  If this blog site is to become a gripe site or bitch site, please make that distinction formal so that truth seekers can go elsewhere.  I dont know about others but I no longer have time to wade through all of these fact-free, presented-logic-free, flippant blog postings from individual self-appointed instant experts, which more and more resemble verbal diarrhea.

    That's a little harsh Mots but I'd also like to see evidence of this "free" energy. And a definition of what "free" energy means versus "expensive" energy.

    In order to do anything with energy there needs to be a gradient of potential energy so that when energy is converted down that gradient it does something useful for us. That's all there is to it. That's the mode of operation of every single energy source we've used and seen in our history. When all those potential energy gradients in the universe have been used up, that is when it enters heat death.

    If there's another source of easily convertible energy available that offers a large and useful potential energy gradient, that would be game changing since fossil fuels are running out. Currently, I understand that thorium offers that, but all it provides is electricity, not chemical energy which is much more useful, and it needs large centralized complex nuclear power plants to work. So not exactly "free".

    What are these UFO's people are talking about?

    And just to be clear, I have personally witnessed vax injection sites becoming magnetic, so the idea of magnetic meat in supermarkets is not really too far out there.

    Aquila’s 2 Cents

    == this unsolicited comment must be read at your own risks, do not troll == 🙂

    Free energy- nothing is free, even if you have a magic pile of coal on your lawn, you still need to shovel that up into your furnace, lit it and provide oxygen to the reaction. Ultimately the amount of resulting energy from the combustion far outweigh the little mechanical effort that you put into the setup, … however can you really say the setup was free? Setting up solar panels isn’t free and arguably the sun shine is free. Overall that doesn’t make solar power a free power source. Don’t forget to clean those panels once in a while too.

    Overall, guess what, nuclear is the cheapest source of energy when scaled up and distributed through electrical grids, … I will now calmly wait the hordes of environmentalists debates how defacing acres of landscape with wind and solar farms is so much greener than putting a few kilos of uranium in a giant concrete box to get some water boiling.

    Cutting the crap and free energy

    This diversion of CMs fine blog site away from critical review of specific verifiable evidence and sifting out truth, and towards focusing attention on "free energy" and magnetic foodstuffs is an important topic that should be settled.  I hope that these alternative ideas could be placed in another category that can be ignored so that people who want to sift out truth can find each other and their topics easily.  The conversations are getting a little hard to follow and really good comments are lost or not read as much as much as they should.

    I hope that we step back and think more about this.

    I have had "free energy" conversations with many many people over the years because as a patent attorney I often worked for free for small inventors who lacked funds.  I mention this because in virtually every case, the person I was talking to was a self appointed expert with a religious view of how the world works and refused to listen to my factual explanations about voltage and current gradients in the earth.  I even wrote a patent application for obtaining and using Tesla`s earth based free energy, despite strongly arguing with the client that he was wasting good time and money.  I have personally felt this free energy directly when installing wires more than one mile long up a long hill, and have a good idea how much can be harvested.  You can read everything that Tesla lectured and wrote about regarding his free energy in "The Inventions Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla" published 2014 - see especially from the bottom of page 346 through page 349.   I have spent hours over the years trying to explain free energy to people who have harangued me at great length to stop what I was doing and build their free energy machine, and in many cases, perpetual motion machines.  I also have many experiences of trying to explain chemistry to physicists who, lacking chemistry knowledge were convinced that specific radio waves and especially 5G cause cancer despite their massive absorption by all kinds of things and conversion to heat.  It is very difficult and counterproductive to talk with such instant experts who refuse to consider facts/evidence and logic from knowledge learned by others that preceded us.  I came to this site in part as a refuge from aggressive non-rational thought.

    I want to review such topics in a more detailed tome, (maybe a month from now) since these internet chit chat crapping keyboarding squirts do not give justice to these topics.  I say this because the people who hold these convictions mean well and really want to do something to make the world a better place. We all have some responsibility for each other`s fate as a consequence of our interactions on common endeavors. And it is important to remember that no one gets out of this alive.  Thus we are equal in our profound ignorance and insignificance, in the big perspective.

    Regarding magnetic beef and chicken.  Any "food" that responds to a magnet is not "food" but must be given another name.  Please consider taking such counterfeit material to your  county health department.

    cheers

    Intelligence and Wisdom are not synonymous.

    There is much mis and disinformation to sort through, and hence, the need to "cut through the crap" but that is each individuals own job and it's not that of ANY self-appointed commitee of experts.

    This blog and forum "cuts through all of the crap":

    of the lying propaganda of the lamestream and dinosaur and authoritarion and Oligarchy/Kleptocracy-controlled mass media.

    The very high technology I had mentioned is quite real and it's terrestrial.

    Like true Freedom, it certainly is NOT "Free"!

    No we actually need more "self-appointed committees of experts", not less

    No we actually need more "self-appointed committees of experts", not less.  For decades we've tried the American libertarian method and it hasn't worked well.  Expecting magic to come out of an ever shifting bunch of individuals chattering and squabbling amongst themselves is like expecting a hurricane to blow a bunch of aircraft parts into a functioning plane.

    The people with power are organised but the people who oppose them choose to remain just a bunch of individuals.  That's why even 3rd rate people manage to stay in power while the rest of us just gripe and squabble.

    Response to arthur, Jack, and Dave

    Arthur;

    Aye, and there lies the rub. You are offering inductive proof. (Of the nature, I have seen one thousand swans; they were all white. Therefore all swans are white.

    Its not that Im saying free energy is absolutely impossible and making a claim that it cannot and does not exist. Im saying there is no evidence of such a phenomenon anywhere in known reality. Not just in regards to energy but in regards to anything humanity can observe. Therefore I have no reason to believe it

     

    So if I say there is a flying purple spaghetti monster hiding in your closet but its invisible and undetectable so you just cant see it.....that has about the same credibility as free energy. Since anything is possible, and you cant disprove an invisible, undetectable flying spaghetti monster you can't say with 100% certainty that it does not exist. However, since there is no evidence of it's existence there is no good reason to believe it.

     

    Thats how I feel about free energy. I cant say its impossible since that would imply knowledge of every possibility, which nobody has. But there is no evidence or reason to believe it, objectively so it remains in the realm of fantasy.

    NordicJack;

     

    Brush,  virtually all energy is free.  Its just a matter of how the corporations and governments wants to stick themselves in between you and it.

    Does someone need to manufacturer coal? or was it made by the planet we live on, completely passive of our existence?  getting energy from coal is as simple as picking up and putting a match to it.  I wouldn't say that is not free.  it is.  Only for those that inherited the earth, can they sell the earth to those who haven't  The exact same can be said for a log or wood.  Completely free energy.  ( thanks to the sun, yet again completely free)

     

    Those things exist, but to be converted into useable energy takes energy expenditure in return. And all of those things "burn" or consume the energy within in order to give you access to it. Perfect example, that log you mentioned. In order to turn that log into a useable source of energy I have to cut it down, split it, season it, store it it correctly, transport it, etc, etc.

     

    I great deal of effort or energy is burned into turning that "potential energy" into real useable energy. So the cost of a heating my house all winter is thousands of calories burned [ energy transferred from food ], wear and tear on my body, wear and tear on my equipment, gasoline to run my chainsaw, etc, etc. There is also the issue of TIME which means that time spent cutting wood comes at the cost of time spent doing something else.

    Its not free it came at a price. If I buy the wood from somebody else, Im just paying that price in dollars instead of all the other things mentioned. Same goes for food. When I first started farming I had the notion that "food is free" and we are just being charged for it by greedy people who have captured the market. While it is true that market capture and manipulation is a problem....food is NOT free.  You have to spend time tilling the ground, planting seeds, cultivating your crop, harvest, storage, preparation. All of those things take energy, whether in terms of calories burned, wear and tear on the body or fuel burned and wear and tear on equipment.

    The potential energy exists independently [ I wouldnt call it free because even the sun is burning/consuming something in order to exist ] but converting that energy; oil/solar/wood/coal into something useable takes WORK which is "In physicswork is the energy transferred to or from an object via the application of force".

     

    Dave;

    So what do you think powers those UFO spacecraft?

    Pratt & Whitney?  Do they fill up the tank on the back side of the moon at the 76 station?   Or ... maybe it is something else?

    Which UFO space craft? I havent seen any, and when did UFO space craft become confirmed as belonging to aliens?

    While I hold out the possibility that aliens may exist and may have visited earth I have seen no hard evidence of it. Its still very much in the realm of speculation. I'm not sure that Im a really a believer but even assuming that they can or do exist, and they've made it here...how does that imply free energy? Its a speculation based on a speculation.

     

    I dont know, maybe you guys are right and Im wrong but I just dont see any reason to believe it YET.

    PS I'd like to add that I actually do enjoy this conversation. I dont think its stupid or wrong to discuss or speculate on, well....anything. You're all smart guys and I feel like I gain something from the interaction whether we agree or not.

    OK then, I appoint myself, Dave, Arthur, and NordicJack as the official committee in charge of discussion topics. After careful examination, and in pursuit of the good of all members, we determine the current topic to be acceptable and permissible.

    There, that should make you feel better.  We are no longer a mere group of individuals having a discussion, we are an organized, centrally planned, sustainable cooperative. The common good, fairness, sustainability, equality, gender neutrality, community, stronger together, from each according to his means to each according to his need, this is NOT about your freedom, etc, etc, etc ...

    How many straw men have you got set up there?

    Sure man, it's either a bunch of people jabbering about UFOs and insect-human hybrids or it's a centrally planned Marxist commune.

    If you guys want this site to be about as productive as a bunch of guys shooting the breeze in a barber shop, then go for it.  I probably won't be renewing my membership though.

    new site, etc

    I too am a bit tired of the single-dimensional structure of the current comment section.  I'm hoping the new site (threaded comments) will make it easier to skim past things (such as "UFOs exist!  no they don't!") that bore you.

    Likewise, I want to be able to deploy the resources I've constructed on the various health issues.  I mean, just yesterday there was a MSM news article on how they gave old people (60+!) either a multivitamin, or a cocoa pill (or both, or placebo) and the ones that got a multi - had a 60% reduced decline into alzheimers.

    From a multivitamin.  With only 20 mg of niacin in it.  (Among other things).  "Centrum Silver."  If we put a real amount of niacin in there, could we live to 99, like Queen Elizabeth?  And Kissinger?  And Rockefeller?

    I mean.  Not-getting-alzheimers seems resilient, right?  Perhaps even Mots would approve this sort of simple resilience.  (Maybe not though, he's pretty cranky after all those years in DC.)  But if I chatter about this here, its gonna get lost in about five seconds.

    As for UFOs - something I saw a few years back, filed by the USN, in the "Unconventional spacecraft propulsion systems" category:

    https://patents.google.com/patent/US10144532B2

    A craft using an inertial mass reduction device comprises of an inner resonant cavity wall, an outer resonant cavity, and microwave emitters. The electrically charged outer resonant cavity wall and the electrically insulated inner resonant cavity wall form a resonant cavity. The microwave emitters create high frequency electromagnetic waves throughout the resonant cavity causing the resonant cavity to vibrate in an accelerated mode and create a local polarized vacuum outside the outer resonant cavity wall.
    Just thought it was interesting.  My sole point with UFOs - they represent an example of energy generation that isn't based on fossil fuels, wind, solar, or boiling water nukes.
    I'm hopeful the threaded convos will help some of our more easily agitated people remain more relaxed as they can skim past the stuff that annoys them.

    You want free energy?   Just study two-way shape memory alloys, such as NITINOL.

    We discovered this alloy in the late 1950s, while looking for alloys to make fan blades for jet engines, completely by accident.

    This alloy is made of Nickel and Titanium powders at a ratio of almost 50% each.

    Nickel Titanium Naval Ordinance Laboratory - NITINOL

    This alloy creates energy via its molecular shape changes, which are controlled via this alloy's reaction to a wide range of desired temperatures.   When "cold," this alloy is as soft as lead and easily distorted in shape.  When "hot," any distortions made to the alloy, when it was "cold," vanish, as the alloy instantly returns to its initial, pre-distorted, shape...and does so with much greater force than used to distort it.

    The molecular energy used by the alloy to return to its original shape, far exceeds the force needed to distort its shape, and produces enough excess energy to perform work, such as running a motor with great torque.

    We have been producing electrical energy with Nitinol motors for many years, and as metallic muscle in our robots and rovers, and in our high performance jet fighters.

     

    Silent, non-magnetic, no fatigue factor, highly conductive, will not rust in sea water, inert in the human body, 20% lighter than steel, with a fluctuating(temperature dependent) Rockwell hardness up to 80, and it creates a force of 55 tons per square inch of Mass...during its molecular shape change.

    Most of the research papers you may still be able to find via the internet are in Russian and Chinese...and most of the English papers only reveal very basic stuff, which we knew way back in 1958.

    So?  Well, imagine running your entire household electrical needs just off the waste heat from you water heater.   And, oh...yes.  It will run the water heater, too.   Now THAT is as FREE as you can get.

    Oh, and one more characteristic of a Nitinol Heat Engine...  The longer it runs...the more it is used...the more efficient it becomes...as the alloy elements "learn" the shapes they are being forced to take...the more repetitions between two fixed shapes are made.

    All this new to you?   Exactly..as desired.

    "Youve been nudged made an evidence-free conclusory statement that "The networks ...are also pulling the strings in China & Russia etc. " Anyone who has been to China or Russia or has any knowledge of those places knows that they have their own virtual reality media which is rather diametrically opposed to the "networks" in the US. There is absolutely no evidence or rationale presented for this flippant remark. Please stop the horseshit."

    How arrogant & bigoted?  Try Whitney Webb (interviewed by Chris), DRASTIC & Corbett etc.

    Trying to tie me in with the 5G/free energy crowd - very dismissive (have you ever read my posts?).

    Yet, you constantly talk about the "fascist takeover of America" - where's YOUR proof?

    Being in a circle jerk for too long has impaired your vision. Forming an echo chamber has made you overestimate your abilities & judgement.

    If the US & China are such adversaries - then why do we pour millions into bioweapons research there?

    The term "UFO" is a Misnomer

    It is "unidentified" only by the ignorant, as the knowledgeable do know exactly what they are:

    Our Own and Most Classified Super High Technology and all purposely mis-labeled as being "U" and as "ET".

    Cutting Mots crap.

    "This diversion of CMs fine blog site away from critical review of specific verifiable evidence and sifting out truth, and towards focusing attention on "free energy" and magnetic foodstuffs is an important topic that should be settled."

    Chris has talked about magnetic jabs & interviewed controversial figures like David Icke, because clearly unlike you - he has an open mind....

    If you have issues with the membership at PP, then maybe you should take it up with Chris - instead of projecting your 'holier-than-thou' attitude onto members who just want the freedom to express new ideas & concepts.

    I see the odd hydrogen fool cell car around, I saw my first real one in a parking lot maybe 10 years ago. And back in the 2010 Olympics they paraded a fleet of H2 powered buses around. Of course they never advertised that the H2 came from stripping natural gas, CH4. It hasn't taken off ... maybe because they are just electric cars, and instead of big batteries powering the motor they have a complicated H2 system plus a small battery to power the motor.

    signs of a market top

    Despite huge stock market gains over the last decade, U.S. pensions are hundreds of billions of dollars short of what they expect to need to pay public worker retirement benefits.

    As a result of underperformance Retirement Fund Giant Calpers Votes to Use Leverage, More Alternative Assets.

    The board of the nation’s largest pension fund voted Monday to use borrowed money and alternative assets to meet its investment-return target, even after lowering that target just a few months ago.

    The move by the $495 billion California Public Employees’ Retirement System reflects the dimming prospects for safe publicly traded investments by households and institutions alike and sets a tone for increased risk-taking by pension funds around the country.

    Without changes, Calpers said its current asset mix would produce 20-year returns of 6.2%, short of both the 7% target the fund started 2021 with and the 6.8% target implemented over the summer.

    Board members voted 7 to 4 in favor of borrowing and investing an amount equivalent to 5% of the fund’s value, or about $25 billion, as part of an effort to hit the 6.8% target, which they voted not to change. The trustees also voted to increase riskier alternative investments, raising private-equity holdings to 13% from 8% and adding a 5% allocation to private debt.

    Borrowing money to increase returns allowed Calpers to justify the 6.8% target while maintaining a more-balanced asset mix, concentrating less money in public equity and putting more in certain fixed-income investments, fund staff and consultants said.

    I already did, thanks!

    Don't look at just the front men and women being presented to you as being true leaders or as experts, but, search for the "unseen hidden hand" that is manipulating these obvious puppets of the Oligarchy/Kleptocracy worldwide.

    I also do see through all such "strawman" logical fallacies, so just stop using them with me. 😀

    Hydrogen fuel cell.

    That is not a true hydrogen fuel cell.

    The one I am referring to uses a catalyst to convert water, h2o, into the pure hydrogen and after ignition to provide power, the exhaust gas is just oxygen and water vapor.

    Is that the sound of a bubble bursting?

    https://youtu.be/PFwDBQefU88

    Zillow loses $300 million using its own zestimate algorithm in the hottest real estate market in history.

    How many loans were issued using estimates? How many CDO's are built on over priced homes? How is this going to play out as blackrock does the exact same thing?

    the point

    The point is less about who built the craft (US, or "someone else"), and more that they aren't using diesel, JP4, pedal power, solar, wind, or boiling water nuclear to move the thing around.  Its a strong-suggestion-by-example of a "new" energy source.  (I doubt its hydrogen.)

    By the way, I like hydrogen.  It just needs a super cheap (intermittent?) electric generation capacity, and hydrogen can act as the energy storage device.  Assuming the electric-hydrogen conversion is relatively efficient.

    But I think the "zero point" or "above-unity" energy sources that have been discussed on those fringe tinfoil-hat-conspiracy-nutjob sites - if true - would by themselves bring about both an increase in the standard of living, a decline in the birthrate, and freedom for the Plebes.  Which (I'm guessing) is why Oligarchy has no interest in letting this tech out.

    I think low-cost decentralized energy sources are 10x more of a threat to their power & control than (say) Treatments For You (i.e. ivermectin).  Keeping us chronically sick and weak is fun and profitable.  Keeping us on a leash to centralized power generation is a drop-dead requirement.  Once we can generate our own power, sky is (literally) the limit.

    So if you think they've been strongly motivated to crush ivermectin, they're about 10x more enthusiastic about...suppressing any "baseload" generation that's not massive, centralized, and/or dependent on fossil fuels with long supply lines that require megacorps to extract from the various resource colonies around the world.

    Just my sense anyway.  No evidence - just projecting "Ivermectin" (and NTFY) onto the much-more-critical energy sector.

    Energy = civilization.  Food production.  Transport.  Mining.  Construction.  Etc.

    Does energy = stuff?

    hi Dave, does having an unlimited amount of energy mean we have any more raw materials to make into things? I get that energy is the driver that helps us make all the stuff and move it around but we haven’t mastered energy to matter transformation right... even if we had all the joules we want we’d still run out of fish in the sea, topsoil, clean water etc... maybe with enough time we could make it to Star Trek land but methinks we r more likely to go backwards no?

    "We have been producing electrical energy with Nitinol motors for many years"

    This statement intrigued me as I had never heard of such a thing. I know nitinol motors exist but the ones of which I am aware are akin to so-called perpetual motion machines, inasmuch as the net energy output of the system, when the energy required to heat the nitinol is factored in, is minimal or even negative.

    Ision, can you point me to evidence supporting your claim?

    yes energy = stuff

    Definitely energy = stuff.  100%.  You give me enough energy, I'll mine those asteroids, and ship the metals back to earth.  All our "peak resources" (in terms of metals anyway) just aren't a problem anymore with enough energ.

    And "moving stuff" is part of stuff.  "Mining stuff" is part of stuff.   "manufacturing stuff" is part of stuff.  All that requires energy.  Energy is the master resource.  Energy = civilization.

    When Africa has plenty of energy, which translates into economic security, they will stop making so many babies.

    So yes.  Energy = stuff.

    And, conversely, no energy = no stuff.

    summarizing posted videos=respecting other people's time; and threaded conversations

    Wanted to echo 2 things, which I think DF said. First, there seem to be many more video links posted these days. That's often good; I loved the link to quasimandias and have been watching him non-stop recently. But if people could post a summary of even just a line or two of what the main points are (or even points with timestamps), it really helps me decide if the link deserves an hour of my time or not. Seems like just good manners.

    Second, especially with the burst of more active forums since covid brought new people in (which is good overall), threaded discussion forums would be really, really welcome. I love learning about ivermectin, niacin, and other evidence based discussions; I'm ready for a break from daily discussions of ufos. They may or may not be in our skies, but they are definitely appearing all over the conversation threads on a daily basis regardless of the topic being discussed.

    Hi hate to disagree, but no, this is not a perfect perpetuum mobile. The reason: you have to collect the gasses and recombine them again to water, and ensure that the water is fed to the electrolysis chamber again. That is, work is needed to make this system a closed loop.

    Check out this article

    Generation of Electricity using NiTinol

    Btw, it is not a perpetuum mobile, a heat source and a heat sink are needed. The nice thing is that the heat engine also works with low temperature differences. The law of thermodynamics still hold though, i.e., the efficiency is dependent on the temperature difference. However, whenever a heat source is available, energy could be gerenated in this fashion.

    Replying to Going to poo-poo free energy again

    If you're on planet earth, solar is free energy.  I'm not talking about electricity generated by solar panels, but the actual energy from the sun that is an input to our planet.  Best example of its use, IMHO, is photosynthesis.  I'm confident that someone way smarter than me will find a way to utilize what we've got to make a near free, decentralized energy system.  In the meantime, I'm trying to find ways to live well but that requires far fewer inputs from the current system.

    (reposted from Lunatics....)

    I was very rude to YHBN.  I kind of  regret that and intended to thank him for providing further information in a later post.  On the other hand, sometimes one has to go outside the box to get some perspective and force a change in an overall situation.  In other words, I meant to be rude as a push back to the recent change in conversations on this blog and wanted to do something about the non-rationals that come to this site. I meant to be an asshole to get some attention for the point I was making.  Anyway, I made it and the response has led me to realize that I spend too much time on this site.

    Also, I see that this site will get majority populated with irrationals as a result of the rapid growth from sheeple who are finally starting to worry about the new dark ages and need a place to flock to.  Eight years ago Arthur Robey constantly harassed me about objections to his irrational cold fusion conviction and I finally had to leave the site for a long time.  I feel the same way now.

    Instead of spending more time on this site, I will instead document evidence and ideas regarding free energy (the one that people refer to as the Tesla discovery) and maybe a couple biology phenomena that create many misunderstandings (ie. extensive clapping of keyboards that doesnt seem to go anywhere).  Then I will invite people to have a video conference to discuss those ideas.  This would bypass the irrationals and be a better focus.  If anyone is offended by this last arrogant statement of prejudice, good for you.

    Communication does not occur via resonating with ideas presented by another.  Communication occurs by the transfer of new or discordant inf0rmation to a person who can deal with it.  Lawyers are used to pulling out and using their knives, perhaps for this reason.

    Response  to Mark-BC, who asked:

    "Then why isn't anyone powering their house with this alloy? Are TPTB preventing it? Really? They've been preventing anyone in the know from making their own alloy from Nickel and Titanium (both easy to get) for 60 years?"

    The mere demonstration of your lack of knowledge of NITINOL is evidence of why.  This alloy is not commonly known to the public, even though it has been talked about..and demonstrated on various news reports..and written about in popular magazines for generations.

    You can obtain NITINOL designed to react to any specific temperature range you dictate and in any form/shape you desire.  It will be custom manufactured for you by several companies.   Just pay them.  You can also purchase "scrap" NITINOL left over from previous melts and contracts, but must accept the design of the alloy as it is.

    Starting in the late 1970s, I obtained my NITINOL from "Allegheny Technologies Incorporated (ATI)" and started experimenting with it to determine its characteristics, and to see what the fuss was about.

    Early tests completely amazed me and I immediately realized this "miracle metal" was capable of powering motors, which were capable of generating enough torque to run an electrical generator.

    The strength displayed by the distorted alloy as it returned to its annealed "memorized" shape was staggering!  Even a simple "S" spring, made of a thin NITINOL wire, about the size of Aircraft safety wire, could easily lift lead weights off the table, which weighed several hundred times more...than the spring weighed.

    The reaction time is virtually instant, faster than the eye can see, but the speed of the reaction could be modulated by how fast the alloy was exposed to its reaction temperature.

    Anyway...I learned enough to understand the best design for a NITINOL power element, which took into account the optimum alloy thickness, based upon its thermal characteristics, and maximized the alloy's Mass (More Mass...more power).  These power elements were then carefully heat treated to obtain very close shape and reaction temperatures...for placement in a motor I designed, a low RPM, high-torque, motor, using straight propylene glycol for its heat transfer.

    (enough)

    In any case, NITINOL is not a secret..and is used in many applications...is many different forms...even toys.   But, NITINOL electrical generators are currently only used in special applications such as in space, where the difference between sunlight and shadow, provides more than enough temperature variation to run it.

    If you wish, you can become very knowledgeable on shape memory alloys and learn just how many products use NITINOL for its various capabilities...and whom is playing with it.  Example:  General Motors has a NITINOL lab, which has already announced, many years ago, how they had developed a NITINOL heat engine, which they had installed on an automotive exhaust pipe, to generate electrical power.  This generator could assist in running the vehicle, via electrical motors in the wheels, and would not take mechanical energy from fueled motor to do so.

    The information is out there...for you to discover.   But, those using this technology to power their personal environments are not going to publicize it, let alone go into the market with it.

    You know money can be made by selling power to the local utility...just like people with waterwheels..and windmills do.

    Vast topic...so, I will just stop.

    Tesla free energy confused with energy thru the air

    I've thought for decades that people have confused Tesla's 'broadcast" of energy from his NY site with the energy being "free" in some way. They thought that because it came thru the air; -- it was FREE.  But I think he just took generating plant electricity and 'broadcast' it much like a radio station does. To 'receivers' that had big coils/capacitors matching the frequency being broadcast.

    Any Evidence?

    I've studied UFOS for over a decade and I can cite volumes of research and professionals. I'm just curious if you have anything to back up your flippant claim.

    Dr. Jacques Valles concluded that there were two equal conspiracies occurring, one man-made and one unidentifiable, and this bears out in the research.

    The motors you may be familiar with are the very same motors everyone attempting to investigate NITINOL see.  These various flywheel, and continuous wire, motors were some of the very first motor created at the  NOL, back in the 1960s.   These weak motors, and their designs,  are basically "teaching" tools, and toys, and meant to distract, rather than inform one of the actual capabilities of this alloy.

    The main complaint the players make about NITINOL is that it cannot be easily upscaled to produce equal power to a hydro-electric..or coal burning power plant..which are nicely centralized, easily controlled, and their power distributions used to generate a large cash flow.

    Rather, the idea of using smaller NITINOL generators, themselves distributed about our cities, in every home, and in every car, would not be to their financial/control benefit.  Even though, such a distributed power system would mean protection from natural disasters and terrorist attack, and ZERO pollution.  The cars in a parking lot, which are all electrical vehicles with a NITINOL generator in them, would aid in powering the office building, the factory, or the shopping center, they serve.

    Any heat source where a temperature difference of at least 15 degrees F is created, can be used to power a NITINOL generator.  A home's water heater stores enough heat energy to run such a generator to power the entire home, or to charge any UPS.  Geo-Thermal sources may be used.  The difference between sunlight and shadow can be used.   A single candle's flame, can be used.   Any waste heat can be used.

    But, with NITINOL, which can be designed to react at virtually ANY temperature, from below FREEZING...to well above the melting point of lead...any heat source can be utilized many times...as this heat is used at each stage of its thermal decline...in 15 degree stages.   Think of a cascade of hot water, flowing sequentially down a stepped, fall, where each lower pool is cooler..than the pool above.  A single cascade, with many stepped pools, could run a dedicated NITINOL generator at EACH POOL...all the way down, until ALL the heat energy of the cascading fluid is totally used up.

    NITINOL also NEVER WEARS OUT...it is not used up...consumed...or lost.  Each NITINOL power element IMPROVES with use and does not degrade.  NITINOL cannot be rare, or controlled by any cartel...as both NICKEL and TITANIUM are readily available earths.   NITINOL does not pollute, is not dangerous in any way, and is totally silent...when in action.

    A robot powered by NITINOL muscles and framed with NITINOL..would be totally silent, very fast, and weigh no more than any organic of its same size.  It would be able to walk through a metal detector with ease...and it would never need to made "rust proof."

    We currently use NITINOL generators, instead of nuclear generators, in aerospace. We currently use NITINOL as robot muscle..and in various actuators.  We use NITINOL as a conductor of electrical energy, as it is cheaper than gold...and just as good.

    It is a "miracle metal" which you might even have in your eyeglass frames..to make them more resilient.

    The mind is boggled by just what this stuff...and other such shape-memory metals...allow us to do.

    Nitinol? This is just a heat engine...smoke going up a chimney, lifting a fleck of ash, is the same.

    Excuse me if there is more to this than a simple heat engine, but  I did  a quick search on "Nitinol engine" and this is what I got:  https://www.imagesco.com/articles/nitinol/09.html

    You get the same effect when smoke goes up a chimney; nothing knew here, really.  Is there something more?

    Just so you know I am honestly inquiring why anyone is talking about nitinol as a big deal, I searched again and here I found a Quora Q&A:

    A:  Because nitinol can’t “power” anything. It needs heat energy put INTO it in order to change it’s shape.  Heating nitinol using electricity to produce motion would be less efficient than just using an electric motor.  Heating it using gasoline would be less efficient than using the gasoline to run an internal combustion engine.

    Then there is the whole problem of metal fatigue. The nitinol wire would quickly fatigue in that kind of high speed cyclic application."

    ---

    Note:   There is energy "wasted" everywhere, with "waste" defined as "not useful work", there is even the issue of one person's useful work may not be the other person's useful work.  If you have two contiguous neighbors using the same stream of water to drive a small electric turbine, the upstream user takes energy from the flow which is, then, not available to the downstream user.  Of course there are an infinitude of cases where there is so much (human perceived) "waste" that there seems to be enough for everyone.  Using a passive solar heating system is an example of this.  But, even here, the energy flow diverted into the house means energy is not available to grow a plant, perhaps, nor to lift a condor into the sky.   Again, if there is a lot more to this effect, please post a useful link so I understand the issue.   Also, I presume everyone knows that a catalyst doesn't gain anything on net?   The chemical reaction it enables is a reaction which was occurring and going to occur anyway;   the catalyst just makes it occur faster.

    Tesla's wireless transmission of electrical energy is virtually always misunderstood, especially his NY tower..and how it was meant to function.

    That NY tower was a "pump" meant to increase the electrical capacity of the EARTH itself, so that one may be ANYWHERE on Earth...and still be able to collect it.

    To use Tesla's own analogy, think of the earth as a balloon, inflated by electrical energy, which creates a certain "pressure," or tension, at the balloon's surface...equally in all directions.   If one then injects more electrical energy into this balloon..the balloon will increase in "electrical pressure" around ALL of its surface.  If one then removes this "excess" pressure by tapping anywhere upon the balloons surface...they can bleed it off to be used..without wires, without transmission boosters, or any loss of power via its method of transmission.

    People confuse Tesla's Colorado experiments with his NY tower and think he meant the tower to broadcast electrical energy through the air.  No.  Through the ground...to every place on Earth.

    You see?  All you are getting from a novice search is all the lies created for you to find.  I have direct, hands-on, experience with two-way, shape-memory, alloys, which directly demonstrate these are all deliberate lies.

    The power of a properly treated NITINOL power element is, in fact, extremely powerful, and capable of a tremendous amount of "work."    The molecular shape change in NITINOL produces a force of 55 tons per square inch, which is vastly more than the force needed to distort it, when it is in its "cold" state.  The difference between NITINOL's cold and "hot" reaction temperature is as little as 15 degrees F.  The difference between you kitchen sinks hot and cold water...will provide enough energy to generate all the electricity for your home.

    If NITINOL is so "weak" General Motors would not have the largest NITINOL laboratory in the world....and we would not be using it in robotics..or on space rovers.

    NITINOL HAS NO FATIGUE FACTOR!  One may bend a NITINOL wire over and over and over...in one place...continuously...and it will never break, or fatigue, or even show wear!   If you check the alloy's temperature at the bend, you will note that the temperature increases at the maximum bend, but when you return the allow to its starting point, the temperature drops back to normal, and when you bend it in the opposite direction..the temp increases again...and vanishes again as it is bent back to the starting point.  This means the alloy does not build up HEAT at the bend...an does not develop micro fractures....and will not break!

    NITINOL will not wear out.  But, if one mishandles a power NITINOL power element, this same element can be subjected to the same heat treatments, which initially created...and fully restored, without loss of capability.

    Knowledge is power.   People simply do not wish to share....

    I am surprised that I have never heard of this simple technology before...

    >> "miracle metal" which you might even have in your eyeglass frames

    The nosepiece of these ThinOptics readers uses nitinol.

    Amazing stuff.

    You may notice this is a "wire" NiTiNOL motor, where a single wire of the alloy is used to power the toy machine.  The two pulley motor works by slightly "stretching" the wire with the bigger pulley...and contracting the wire with a smaller pulley in a warm water bath.

    Notice...the weakest possible use of NiTiNOL to produce mechanical motion, is a single, unshaped, wire, such as displayed here.   But, if just the slight elongation and contraction of a tiny alloy wire runs this toy...think of a much more massive power element, which utilizes the most powerful shape-memory reaction the alloy is capable of, which maximizes the Mass of the alloy, to be applied to its "power" stroke.   Think about the addition of MANY such power elements in series ALL working to power the SAME drive-shaft.   One can add ANY number of power elements to drive a single shaft...until this shaft produces the desired amount of torque.

    Such NiTiNOL engines generate a tremendous amount of actual work, far beyond just the spinning of wheels, or propellers.  They are not toys.

    This makes sense Ision...

    There would be some limit to the useful thickness of the NiTiNOL element as a result of the heat transfer delay from the surface of the active element to the bulk metal inside... but I am sure one could go much thicker than thin wire and still have a form of coordinated action in the metal that could be useful, albeit not on the fastest time scale.

    changes in SPR vs Oil Price

    Saw this comment elsewhere on the site - forget where.  Ran off to create a chart.

    Here's the price of crude over the past year, vs "changes in the SPR - weekly" (in thousands-bbl).  So this past week, the SPR dropped by 3.249 million bbl, or about 464,000 bbl/day.

    President Grandpa's handlers are terrified by the rising gasoline price.  This is how they are "fixing" it.  And it does seem to be working.

    Brilliant policy.  Selling our "emergency seed corn" to cover for their "Climate Change" pipeline closures.

    You will note this is an early NiTiNOL motor, which they attempted to upscale just the single-wire, non-shaped, alloy element...by multiplying the number of wires used, within a roller system and water baths.   It is a very crude attempt at making such a motor, using incomplete knowledge of the alloy...which they were still playing with.

    A modern NiTiNOL motor is entirely sealed, uses NO liquid baths, does not use water as a heat transfer, and uses shaped elements, instead of wire stretching, it is design.

    We can also use NiTiNOL directly...to create work...not electricity.  NiTiNOL can be totally electrically controlled, like a muscle fiber is controlled by nerve impulses.  NiTiNOL wires can be weaved together, much the way organic muscle fibers are, and controlled via computer controlled electrical impulses.  Thus, why it is being used in robotics and prosthetics.   NiTiNOL robot muscle is very powerful, far beyond its organic counterparts...and does not need oxygen, nutrients, or sleep.

    Yes and no. It is a simple heat engine governed by the laws of thermodynamics, in that sense it is nothing new. However, where an heat engine typically needs a temperature difference of several tens of degrees (F or C), the memory metal based engine requires a smaller tenperature gradient. The maximal efficiency is of course the Carnot efficiency. How do I know this? Well, I started a startup in a novel energy “modification” technology that doesn’t require a temperature gradient. I worked on this for the last decade, and the menory metal motors was one method I studied.

    Btw, this crisis sped up my decision to quit my job and go “all in” as a big “Let’s go” to the establishment.

    Remember, heat is just a form of energy, so is work, so is potential energy.

    Exactly the purpose of my lab experiments with NiTiNOL.  Also notice the inefficiency of using an open bath for heat transfer to the element...as the motor speeds up...it starts to throw water all over the place...and water begins to cling to the element as it leaves the bath.  Also, such motors do nothing to COOL the heated element, after it has left the warm bath, save ambient room temperature.

    These toys are just for demonstrating the concept to a classroom.

    My own motor designs have yet to be duplicated by others, yet they are superior to any others I have seen...or even seen on paper.  Which amazes me...as to me..the design is obvious.

    But the entire point of all of this is:

    THERE IS NO ENERGY CRISIS WHICH IS NOT DELIBERATELY CREATED AND DESIRED.

    Just imagine if the entire planet ran on graphite bearings and oil-free NiTiNOL engines?   Disaster!!

    interesting stuff

    Sure seems like some smart mechanical engineers could come up with something useful.  Lots of waste heat out there.  And waste "radioactive" material.  Seems like the process might be more efficient than an explosion inside a cylinder.

    But I'm really not a molecule person.  "This is a hardware problem" (said the software guy).  I recall taking my hardware class.  I was appalled at how finicky all the little components were.  "Wait, so the circuit gives me different results when I push down on the chips?"  Yes.  That's hardware.  I digress.

    Was "cold fusion" a thing too?  Stomped on by Oligarchy?  Like Ivermectin?   "Oh cold fusion is just a horse dewormer."  You're not a horse - you're not a cow.  Stop with the cold fusion, y'all.

    Wouldn't it be interesting if more of these things were able to see the light of day?  That right there would stop the "overpopulation" problem cold.  Without requiring "Doctor" Gates, his hand-waving, and his curious fixation on (highly profitable) forced vaccination.

    Energy = civilization.  And civilization = lower birth rates.  For the most part.

    Step #1: unite.

    Step #2: remove the Oligarchy from power - because of their crimes against humanity.

    Step #3: solve the problems we face in a humane and creative way.

    Sky's the limit.

    This is the epilogue to an article by Josh Mitteldorf from 6/29/21:

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/how-real-science-became-fake-news/5748954

    My mentor at Harvard (first paragraph) was Julian Schwinger, one of the most brilliant physicists of the 20th Century, who shared the 1965 Nobel Prize with Richard Feynman for (independently) formulating relativistic quantum field theory. His physics papers had been prized by the scientific community and were published in top-tier physics journals ever since, as an 18-year-old wunderkind working under J Robert Oppenheimer, he conducted pioneering research in nuclear physics. But after the cold fusion controversy of 1989, Schwinger became interested in the phenomenon, and suggested some deep theoretical insights. He was told by the world’s foremost physics journal that they would not consider a paper on cold fusion because the editors didn’t believe it was real. This is what prompted Schwinger’s warning about the future of physics. He resigned from the American Physical Society in protest.

    I first discovered the cold fusion story in 2012. Over the ensuing two years, I attended two conferences and visited five cold fusion laboratories. I can attest from talking to the experimental scientists and reviewing their data that cold fusion is real. Of course, the potential for solving the world’s energy problems and for learning fundamentally new principles of physics are both monumentally exciting. Despite many replications of cold fusion worldwide and several companies pursuing it as a new energy source, this remains a topic that mainstream physics journals refuse to touch.

     

    (The rest of the article is also worth reading, btw.)

    My thoughts: what if the govt has a secret energy program that doesn't produce CO2?  Why keep it a secret? Because they committed to the climate change narrative decades ago; it's the easiest way to get citizens of Western democracies to give up their freedom, and accept NWO, The Great Reset.

    Cold Fusion, aka LENR, is a real. We just don't understand it enough to exploit it yet

    For years I have followed Dr. Peter Hagelstein of MIT - not sure if he does anymore but he used to teach a yearly, non-credit course, open to the public, on the subject of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) during one of the winter breaks.

    This is a very dense subject, but for those with an interest, the "othering" and cancellation of Pons & Fleischmann, and of those who would dare try to follow in their footsteps, the parallels with what is happening today regarding science and many aspects of Covid-19 will jump out.

    Here is a very recent summary of pretty much everything we know about LENR, in 40 minutes, by Hagelstein;

    hmmmm

    Like COVID19 and treatments, I'm starting to suspect "we have a lot of ways to treat the Peak Fossil Fuels Pandemic", but for some reason, our National Energy Bureaucracy has adopted a policy of No Energy For You.

    COVID and NTFY was "not their first rodeo", it would seem.

    I remember all the fuss post-Cold Fusion.  It sure felt like Ivermectin.  At least in retrospect.  I didn't realize there was the same sort of "failure to publish" going on.

    Very interesting!  I think in addition to a "health" section, we need an "energy" section also.  Jim, I'm volunteering you to run it.  What with you being a molecules guy and all.  🙂

    Kneel before the Empirical evidence.

    We experience reality with our Right brains.  We build Models of reality with our Left brains.

    Reference: Psychiatrist Dr. Iain Mcgilchrist.

    This is why, if the Model is in conflict with the empirical evidence, the empirical wins. Every. Single. Time.

    No excuses. No matter how solid your precious model is. If I see Ohm's law being violated, out it goes and I am better off for it. (Not likely to happen).

    A scientific experiment is not a demonstration; it is a leap into the unknown. Unexpected results are the joy of scientists.

    Therefore, if the good Professor declares that nothing can penetrate the Coulomb barrier, (a Model), and an experiment shows it being violated (the empirical evidence) then the good Professor should be enraptured that his model is sunk.

    I refer obliquely to the results of the SAFIRE experiment.

    When I saw what they had done, I was ecstatic, and it puzzled me why others became defensive.

    Dr. Mcgilchrist wrote a whole tome on this malady. It is called "The Master and his Emissary".

    It is a modern malady of modern man.

    Pons and Fleischman

    Did you know that Pons and Fleischman's first itty bitty little electrochemical experiment with a single test tube blew a one meter hole through the benchtop and chipped a one centimeter deep creater in the concrete floor?

    That's what nuclear explosion be like. They are not subtle.

    Their follow-on experiments were less convincing but still had signal.

    Their reputations were destroyed because "Models". They are the bane of scientific advancement.

    Ision, Where can one get "NiTiNOL"?  I am half expecting you to say "you can't", but it would seem they've already specified the required elements required to create it and you've said that small samples are available, if only in eyeglasses. So, it ought to be possible to reverse engineer it.  Also, based on that video, that film of McDonnell Douglas work must be at least 50+ years old?    So, when does it fall into the public domain?

    I'm skeptical, and will try hard to remain skeptical -- but I would sure like to be wrong and would even like to get involved in proving myself wrong.   It also occurs to me that, since they are openly acknowledging it is a heat engine, the heat differential between the hot and cold water (source and sink) ought to be pretty straightforward to measure -- and should correspond pretty well.  By that I mean, the hot water should get colder while the cool water gets hotter -- and the temperature change out to correspond pretty well to the work done...right? Have you done that sort of simple experiment with your NiTiNOL?

    Nitinol Eyeglass Frames

    Stph,

    I've had a couple of pairs of metal eyeglass frames (just the ear pieces from the hinge to the plastic ear guard and nose bridge were of this material) that could be wrapped around my little finger and when released, would subsequently spring back to the original formation without any kinking. I searched and found one of my old pairs. I wrapped the ear piece around my little finger and dipped my finger in ~110°F hot water. I couldn't keep it wrapped around my finger. It sprang back to its original formation. The ear pieces could still be bent some under the hot water, but it was much more difficult.

    I always wondered what alloy they were composed of. Now I know. This is an image that I found advertised on Ebay (now expired) with this title: Memory Titanium Alloy Full flex Flexible Pilot Eyeglass Frames Optical Glasses. (These are identical to mine.)

    Starting in the late 1970s, I obtained my NITINOL from "Allegheny Technologies Incorporated (ATI)" and started experimenting with it to determine its characteristics, and to see what the fuss was about.

    Early tests completely amazed me and I immediately realized this "miracle metal" was capable of powering motors, which were capable of generating enough torque to run an electrical generator.

    The strength displayed by the distorted alloy as it returned to its annealed "memorized" shape was staggering! Even a simple "S" spring, made of a thin NITINOL wire, about the size of Aircraft safety wire, could easily lift lead weights off the table, which weighed several hundred times more...than the spring weighed.

    The reaction time is virtually instant, faster than the eye can see, but the speed of the reaction could be modulated by how fast the alloy was exposed to its reaction temperature.

    Anyway...I learned enough to understand the best design for a NITINOL power element, which took into account the optimum alloy thickness, based upon its thermal characteristics, and maximized the alloy's Mass (More Mass...more power). These power elements were then carefully heat treated to obtain very close shape and reaction temperatures...for placement in a motor I designed, a low RPM, high-torque, motor, using straight propylene glycol for its heat transfer.

    Can you show us one of your experiments where this system turned a shaft? You say you made a motor with it.

    Ah! I remember seeing that in an optical shop maybe 10 years ago.    I just did a search  inspired by your reassurance the metal is available.  Apparently it is manufactured in China (and maybe other places) and can be purchased from a number of different sources.  Amazon has 5 foot rolls for as low as $9.99:  https://www.amazon.com/Nitinol-Wire/b?node=11260363011

    So how much do you need to do something useful with it, beyond flexible eyeglasses?

    What prevented it from being put to heavy commercial use as that film clip hinted was coming?  Does anyone have information on what stalled its use?

    Evidence of "Deliberate misinformation, disinformation, and malfeasance"?

    There is mountain of evidence of all of those rivaling Everest.

    This is particularly true of energy production technology that could destroy the Oligarchy/Kleptocracy vice grip of control over it.

    The same is true with the economy and food production and with the environment and information. The centralization of all control and power in only their own hands is the goal.

    Show me the "incentive or motive", and I will show you the result:

    Tyranny!
