Question for Richard Hull-
I haven't gotten your paper yet, so could you tell me if you think this could be the source of Graneau's anomalous water-arc power?

>>One thing I did find interesting from my quick reading of the article is the similarity between Mills' model of an electron and that of Common Sense Science (http://www.commonsensescience.org/)

I see similarity in the fractional energy levels, but big difference in that Mills has the electron spread out as an 'orbitsphere' or surface, which helps in explaining photon-trapping in the resonant surface' cavity.

Been a while since I read the CSS papers, but I think their photon is the resonance of a toroidal electron. Doesn't explain why the EM field isn't radiated away.

And in both cases, how does the photon get liberated?

I like the notion of a nonlinear aether that supports soliton particles, that warps and vibrates the aether around high-energy soliton particles, to trap lower-energy photons.

Another interesting soliton fact is that solitons can travel at different speeds depending on energy; so looped nuclear solitons (particles) can have significantly different properties than photons that are open and travel at light speed.

I can dig up some interesting references to LLNL papers on extended electrodynamics if there is any interest. Very relevant to fusing because tuneling is a phenomena that is intuitive and makes sense in nonlinear theories, but becomes a matter of spooky faith in QED.

Having electrons in low fractional orbits has interesting implications for affecting nuclei with energetic photons and charge beams via tuneling

>This is why I like the idea of the hydrino so much...., but hey, In the late 50's I liked the Bondi-Hoyle continuous creation universe and never have really given up totally on something akin to an aether. I am always prepared to be wrong. RH

Another neat thing about Mills and nonlinear science is the unification with gravity, and grand unification.

In some theories (I can get a reference to an LLNL paper) gravity is an outward, repulsive force that only appears attractive! An experiment was done with pressurized balloons in a sealed tank of water. The balloons were attracted to each other even though their pressured pushed equaly in every other direction!

>>Without alternative ideas, there would be no innovation. But this could be a scam. Best to be cautious.

That's what I think too. I wonder what properties a collapsed hydrino dimer would have? Could it be a 'super-caustic'?

I sure like the idea of a battery with an individual cell potential of 75 volts! Having reactions with 100 eV energy levels is quite attractive for aerospace applications too!

But this could be enteresting experiments for fusor enthusiasts, to create catalyzed hydrogen plasma and look for hydrino spectra.

Or perhaps those with better chemisty understanding than I could formulate some other atoms fractional spectra (the higher the Z number, the higher the energy!), and use plasma isotope seperation techniques to see if the can isolate the collapsed atoms.
