OK! There are a lot of very intelligent people out there who find the idea of active conspiracies, whose aim is to control and “own” LENR energy generation – delay its rollout until such time as they have devised an implemented a plan for control, and assure a military advantage for their side – as “Paranoid!” It’s too late to stop it. They would never do that to us! My response is “Bah, Humbug!”
Consider these three possible realities.
1. YOU know about the advent of the LENR age, because of the many successful efforts to replicate the phenomenon, the many recent patents applied for in the field, and the side show now being presented to us by Defkalion and Andrea Rossi. But THEY do NOT know about it – the president or his highest level staff, the ultra rich, the most highly placed military, CEOs etc. at the largest energy, financial and related industries.
2. They DO know about LENR breakthroughs, but will let nature and capitalism run it’s course for the good of humanity. After all, they stand to make even more money because they have the capital to take advantage of the opportunities the fledgling industry presents.
3. They DO know about the LENR breakthroughs, and are making every effort to control and eventually own the entire LENR industry for their own good and long term security.
First, I do not like debates with the “missing middle,” so I actively invite anyone to add to this little list. I could, of course, create a good bit more of a continuum between the three. You know, like between one and two, something like “They’ve heard of this crap but don’t believe it for a heartbeat”, or between two and three “They can’t control Rossi and Defkalion, but they’ll get their people going on this ASAP, and try to catch up and own at least a part of it”. But, I think the list does accurately define a continuum of possible states regarding the current knowledge and intent of the Military/Financial Complex, which for all intents and purposes runs the world.
It seems faintly possible that scenario one is in play. Mid-level sycophants might be very reluctant to stick their neck out too far in convincing those above them that this whole crazy impending transformation of society is in fact REAL. It IS possible that the rigidity of the hierarchy will provide the seeds of its own eventual extinction. I’m afraid that I might be guilty of overestimating the intelligence of at least some of the MFC (Military/Financial Complex). I cannot imagine being in their position and NOT having specialists watching for exactly the kind of scenarios which now presents itself. But, considering the absolute doltishness of various empires in their later stages, who knows? Would Nero have listened? What about King George III and the American Revolution? How about Hitler or Stalin? So, I guess this end of the spectrum might possibly be how it will go, much to my delight (“delight” is much too weak a word! Something like “giddy, orgasmic ecstasy” might be better, but, it IS a figure of speech!)
My belief is that the reality is somewhere much closer to scenario three. I just cannot imagine anyone at the top of the MFC passively watching this all evolve because, at some point, it will have developed to the point that it IS past their control. Maybe that is already the case, but I don’t think so. If I were in their position, I would, beyond any shadow of a doubt, be up to my elbows in trying to get a handle on the whole ball of nickel. How could they not? They should! It would be beyond any defense if they were simply “ambushed” by all this. If the military lost the opportunity to develop and secure an advantage as huge as this they would be rounded up, lined up and strung up in short order. The electorate would never forgive elected officials for not having this power source, largely developed and verified at NASA and SPAWAR, used as a club for American hegemony. Don’t you think?
Question is, what do the few hundred thousand of us, who ARE aware of the vast potential of this for the future of the human race, do in the face of such powerful, secretive and ruthless authority? The spectrum of possibilities is actually sitting close to the scenario three end, in my opinion, and the only recourse is PLAN X! Publish, Disseminate, Translate and Finance. For once the REST of us are in a position to compete in the meme-space and for the awareness of PlanetMind. Keep spreading the word, and wait for the chance to actually take part in a world-wide, people financed and controlled effort to let LENR knowledge and technology truly enter the public domain.
