- 1651 - Rossi shows us the operation of reactor (1)-thumb-610x335-37645 (1)

I have extreme doubts but I sincerely hope Andrea Rossi proves us all wrong with his device.  With his “energy catalyzer” (called E-Catalyzer or E-Cat) Rossi claims an energy multiplier of 30X.  I would guess if something is happening it’s a chemical reaction, though this does not jive with the […]

After the Big Bang came the Great Darkness. In indescribable darkness, matter raced away from itself in all directions, pushing space into being as it did so. Darkly, it spun and coalesced, exploded and merged, exploded again, grew heavier, impossibly; formed stars that lived billions of years, died, and in […]

“That particular sense of sacred rapture men say they experience in contemplating nature- I’ve never received it from nature, only from. Buildings, Skyscrapers. I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline.”

After buying the old farmhouse at the end of March, I quickly went around to its back to look at what I had really purchased it for.  Because, although the house was very old and pretty in a vernacularly plain way, the property upon which the house sat was the […]

One of the things I found out about years ago that too many people have not heard of today is how you can use your computer’s idle CPU time to advance science. It all started when the SETI (Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence) and the University of California at Berkley started […]

Einstein’s theory of special relativity was the first theory of science that was not intuitive but it was still a theory based on deterministic classical physics. When quantum theory was […]
