Mills' credentials[edit]

There is no record that Mills ever attended MIT. There is no entry for a Randell Mills in the MIT alumni directory. He may have audited some classes but that would not be sufficient for the claim "He later studied biotechnology and electrical engineering at MIT". The citation for that statement is a magazine article. I vote for deletion of that statement and also taking a closer look at his other credentials.Zen-in (talk) 23:56, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Go ahead. All claims in Wikipedia articles need independent reliable sources. Xxanthippe (talk) 00:02, 12 January 2016 (UTC).
By "may have audited" do you mean "may have attended"? It sounds like you have looked at something specific to say "no entry"—is there a link? Does anyone have information on the other claim at BlackLight Power#Randell Mills ("degree in Chemistry from Franklin & Marshall College") which has [citation needed]? Johnuniq (talk) 01:07, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
No, I meant that he may have just occupied a seat in a lecture hall a couple of times. If he attended his name would appear in the alumni register. There is no entry for a Randell Mills in the MIT alumni register. If you don't think I'm telling the truth you should ask another MIT alum to log in and verify that information.Zen-in (talk) 02:27, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
(ec) I found this.
Good find. Why don't the skeptics actually call MIT so they can see the truth? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.93.181.106 (talk) 15:50, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
"Randell L. Mills, M.D. graduated Summa Cum Laude in Chemistry at Franklin & Marshall College in 1982 and graduated from the Harvard Medical School in 1986. While doing his intern work, he also went across the river to MIT and furthered his education with electrical engineering courses."
I don't believe a Harvard Medical School intern would be able to find the time to travel from Brookline MA to MIT a few times a week. Maybe once or twice but not every week.Zen-in (talk) 02:49, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
While I'm not inclined to credit it as a reliable source for...well, anything, I suspect that FUSION Facts: A Monthly Newsletter Providing Factual Reports on Cold Fusion Developments can at least be relied on to present one of its 1991 FUSION SCIENTISTS OF THE YEAR in the most favorable light possible. At best, then, he dabbled in a few engineering courses while a medical intern, and has since made a point of hyping it without offering any details. (Technically, every statement I've seen would still be true if he took one course in biotech and one course in electrical engineering. Heck, the statements would still be true if he audited the courses, or failed them, or did them as some sort of night-school continuing education offering.) Definitely shouldn't be included without some meaningful details. TenOfAllTrades(talk) 01:17, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
When I read "studied at MIT" I interpret it to mean he attended lectures, recitations, handed in complete problem sets, and wrote tests. Someone who audits a course has permission from MIT to just occupy a seat in the lecture hall. They are not studying the subject. If he was registered as a student, attended some courses and failed them he would appear in the alumni register. Sometimes Harvard students audit MIT courses. That might be what he did. But I don't think it could be said he studied at MIT. No "night-school continuing education offering" is available at MIT. OpenCourseWare videos are available for many MIT courses. I don't think anyone who watches a few minutes from one of these videos can seriously say they studied at MIT either. Zen-in (talk) 02:15, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
As far as the article's content go, I don't think there's any disagreement that the MIT claims should be excised as needless puffery. With respect to Mills' attendance or registration status, I would be hesitant to rely absolutely on the alumni directory/register info. Do we know with certainty that the same information and detail available for recent students is available for individuals who would have been on campus in the early eighties? (Similarly, the type and breadth of program offerings in the early 1980s are probably different from what we see today. Incidentally, MIT does indeed offer continuing ed courses.) TenOfAllTrades(talk) 04:43, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
Yes, its just puffery. MIT's definition of who is an alumnus/alumna has not changed in that time. I can only speak about the courses and admission requirements at MIT in the early 80's because that was when I was a student there. MIT does offer professional courses beyond the undergrad and grad curriculum, but it is doubtful a medical school intern could afford them. I sometimes run into this kind of puffery and sometimes worse credential fraud. I remember one individual who claimed he "studied" at MIT and at the Kennedy school of business at Harvard.Zen-in (talk) 05:25, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
There is no need for a long discussion. If rock-solid independent sources do not support a fact (as appears to be in this case) then the fact goes out:WP:RS. Xxanthippe (talk) 06:05, 12 January 2016 (UTC).
Here's the proof he studied there, and he studied under the famous Professor Hermann Haus, which should also be added to the page:

From: http://www.sheldonemrylibrary.com/tjsummer12.pdf

The Trends Journal Meanwhile, after completing his medical studies in three

years, Mills spent a fourth year at MIT investigating electrical engineering. He became a student of renowned physicist Hermann Haus, who won the prestigious National Medal of Science in 1995. He and Mills shared a frustration: hydrogen is the most abundant material in the universe, but in some basic ways, its behavior violates the laws of quantum mechanics, which is the reigning structure of physics theory. Scientists don’t know why; they just accept that it does.

That wasn’t good enough for Haus and Mills. Inspired by the professor, Mills turned away from quantum mechanics and returned to classical physics – physics as it was before Einstein – to find an answer. From those long-ago roots, he crafted a mathematical theory that not only explains why hy- drogen is stable, but also predicts that new forms of hydro- gen are possible.

I expect the person who made the bad edit by removing the text do the work himself to re-add the text along with additional text referencing Haus as Mills' teacher. Eric mit 1992 (talk) 01:04, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Where did The Trends Journal (TTJ) get Mills' MIT background? It is an interview, not a definitive biography of Mills. I would think the author either got it from Mills directly, or from some literature, likely online. Why would the author care how factual this small tidbit of information is? I wouldn't see the author spending much time verifying it. There is no indication in the article of his source. Therefore, I don't see this article as a reliable source on Mills' MIT background. That information should stay off the page until an RS supplied. If Mills just audited a classes at MIT, I would question adding the MIT quote in the article.
"Investigating electrical engineering" (TTJ) or "studied biotechnology and electric engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology" (Quantum Leap Mag) could mean many things. Going to MIT's library and reading a textbook occasionally would qualify. Jim1138 (talk) 04:14, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Unbiasing the page[edit]

There have been several announcements, progress updates, and technology updates from BLP over the last few months, especially the last week. They have published videos showing a sustained reaction that's producing a visible plasma. I will say that this page is going to significantly change over the next few weeks, and hopefully, once and for all, it will become unbiased. By the way, Mills studied at MIT by taking EE classes there, he did not receive a degree. The edit that was made to remove that text was a bad edit. The text quoted the article, and the article correctly stated that he "studied" at MIT. I hope the person who made that bad edit has the sense to revert it. Eric mit 1992 (talk) 23:58, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Eric mit 1992, great! I'm looking forward to some relief from my electric bill. I will gladly rewrite the article myself when my power bill drops.
When will a working model be given to a qualified, reliable group who can verify its operation? Validation would need to be done in the group's own lab and on their own terms. And not being carefully monitored and orchestrated by BLP? Is there any RS information on such an event? That should be included in the article.
Also, when will samples of hydrinos be made available? (Can I get some?) The existence and characteristics of hydrinos were discussed without resolution on Talk:BlackLight Power/Archive 5#Hydrinos - Waste product BLP must have accumulated significant quantities by now. Verification of the existence of hydrinos would go a long way to demonstrating their claim. And, BLP wouldn't even need to give up any technological secrets. Given that the hydrogen to hydrino transition emits copious amounts of energy, hydrinos should be quite stable, safe to ship, and unlikely to deteriorate. Any RS news on BLP making hydrino samples available should be added to the article Jim1138 (talk) 04:59, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
Great news! It's sad that the article has been locked, thereby hindering updates. Mainstream science community does not like being proven wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.93.181.106 (talk) 15:55, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Patent application activity[edit]

Checking up on activities at the European Patent Office, I came across an application EP 2966723  and this search opinion filed last month. Paragraph 3 of the opinion is an interesting analysis, particularly 3.3, where the opinion states that "The experimental data given on pages 146-232 of the present application do not appear plausible as many of the experiments are reported to provide an infinite energy gain (see, for example, the first experiment of page 146). This means that energy is generated out of nothing, i.e. a perpetuum mobile has been created. Perpetuum mobiles and infinite energy gains are also contrary to wel-established physics."

Claims section[edit]

The Claims section of the main article is out of date.

There is a substantial history of evolving claims since the "cold fusion" events mentioned in this section. These claims are important to describing the subsequent (and current) activities of Brilliant Light Power, the subject of this article, and its precursors.

I would be willing to propose updates to this section, but I sense that editing is very contentious here and I am not sure what level of citation is expected to support a statement "R. Mills claimed X in year Y". Are direct citations to refereed and non-refereed publications appropriate? Secondary sources like Holverstott's recent book? Blacklight Power and Brilliant Light Power web pages?

What guidance can be offered to a contributor? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.17.40.237 (talk) 05:13, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Note: the text below is a work in progress. It was initially introduced 21 November 2016 as "Proposed outline for the Claims section". My intent is to edit it here in the talk page, guided by WP:FRINGE and the sources mentioned by LeadSongDog, to the point where it has enough detail to become a request to "Replace the existing Claims section with this text". 24.17.40.237 (talk) 07:00, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Replacement Text for Claims section:

Claims[edit]

Since the early 1990's, Mr. Mills has presented a large number of claims related to his novel physical theory. These claims may be categorized as

  1. Claims that independently known or reported phenomena are explained by, predicted by, or consistent with the theory,
  2. Claims that laboratory experiments designed to test or demonstrate the theory were performed, and supported the theory
  3. Claims that there are important practical applications of the theory
  4. Claims that commercial equipment exploiting the theory will soon be manufactured and sold

Considering the large number of claims put forward over an extended time period, the following sections are not comprehensive. Representative claims of the four categories are described below. 24.17.40.237 (talk) 16:43, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Explanatory claims[edit]

Mills has claimed that his theory explains early "cold fusion" results as hydrino phenomena[1]; that the theory computes accurate values for atomic ionization potentials[2][3]; and that the theory explains the properties of "dark matter"[4], among other things.

Experimental claims[edit]

(Examples: hydrino generation in plasmas, electrochemical cells; detection of light, NMR, etc. signatures)

Few of these experimental claims have been independently replicated. Some have been strongly criticized (see Criticism, below).

Applications claims[edit]

(Examples: power generation, hydrino-based materials with special properties)

Commercial equipment claims[edit]

(Examples: electrochemical power generators, 2016 "SunCell" generator) None of the claimed commercial equipment has actually become available.

The intent of this section is to describe what Mills has claimed, no more. Thus the typical citation would be to a work, verifiably authored by Mills, which makes the claim attributed to him. Am I on the right track? 24.17.40.237 (talk) 22:55, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Comment. I would like to see the article stubbified down to everything except its lede. Xxanthippe (talk) 23:42, 21 November 2016 (UTC).

I believe Xxanthippe proposal for massive article restructuring deserves separate discussion from this one, which concerns updating Claims section. 24.17.40.237 (talk) 17:50, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

I am currently looking at WP:FRINGE for guidance.

Under Evaluating_and_describing_claims I see a suggestion to "first describe the idea clearly and objectively, then refer the reader to more accepted ideas", which is where I see this going. However, WP:FRINGE also recommends to "avoid hiding all disputations in an end criticism section" and to "avoid excessive use of point-counterpoint style refutations". In light of this, I suggest we place Criticism immediately after Claims, so it is not "hiding" in an "end" section. I think Criticism should lead off with a couple of paragraphs fulfilling the WP:FRINGE-suggested role of referring the reader to more accepted ideas. I would remove the separate Experimental Results section entirely, placing Neidra et al ("NASA") and Marchese et al ("Rowan University") in the Experimental Claims section. Regarding Šišović et al ("European Physics Journal D") it could also go in this claims section, as a response to the relevant claims by Mills; alternatively it could go in Criticism. 24.17.40.237 (talk) 18:38, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request 24 Dec 2017[edit]

In the Peer Reviewed Responses section Rathke is cited as saying there is "no theoretical support of the hydrino hypothesis" back in 2005. There is a more recent article (2013) [1] which states: "In summary, the hydrino states exist for both the Klein–Gordon and the Dirac equations, but they are sensitive to using a point-nucleus versus a finite-nucleus model, critically so in Dirac’s equation and less so in the Klein–Gordon equation." [2]. Similarly, a paper from 2012 states "We propose a theoretical explanation of the effect based on the mathematical theory of physical vacuum...according to which hydrogen can be in the so called hydrino state with a small atom radius and the transition to this state is accompanied by considerable energy release" [3]. Another even claims to have detected hydrinos "we in fact measured fluxes of {proton + heavy electron} pairs. Such {proton + heavy electron} pair can be named a subhydrogen, an additional term for the known hydrex[11-15], hydrino [16-19] and pseudoneutron [24]" [4]. These seem to contradict Rathke, so some mention of them would be worthwhile, and perhaps some moderation of the Rathke assertion(s). I'd be happy to suggest appropriate edits, but it would be good to first reach consensus that some sort of edit is warranted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 58.110.97.117 (talk) 12:55, 24 December 2017 (UTC)

I think mainstream physicists would continue to claim that there is no theoretical support of the hydrino hypothesis, so there's no reason to make a change to that part of the article.
JCMNS is a fringe journal. Useful, perhaps, to describe fringe beliefs themselves, but not to comment generally on science. ApLundell (talk) 15:36, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

There are plenty of people alert to watch that fringe material is not inserted into Wikipedia unchallenged, but not to engage in tendentious debate on the subject, which is not the purpose of the talk page. Xxanthippe (talk) 22:06, 9 January 2018 (UTC).

Agreed. According to page information, there are currently 135 watchers. Given that BLP has been doing this for awhile, they should have accumulated a large quantity of hydrinos by now. I'm sure any chemistry prof would give their eye teeth for a significant sample. Need a postal address? Jim1138 (talk) 00:17, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
What has any of that to do with the references from reliable sources provided above? These are all more recent than the cited materials in the article, and would warrant some sort of moderation of what is currently clearly untrue statements. "Thinking" what mainstream physicists would or wouldn't claim is no replacement for reliable sources - not to mention the fact that mainstream physicists who have read Mills' & co. papers have deemed them suitable to publish in journals. If JCMNS is a fringe journal, please provide evidence to back that up - and by all means then disregard that single reference - but I note the others are not fringe, hence worthy of consideration. Assessing the content of RS is not tendentious debate, it's editing. As for the tendentious comments about accumulating hydrinos, this is both irrelevant to my request and demonstrates you haven't been paying very close attention to BLP. 49.199.112.144 (talk) 02:52, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Yes. And at least two of those references are examples of exactly that!! They both cite papers by Mills et al. demonstrating that more recent scientific enquiry contradicts the older claims currently featured in the article. Which is why I am suggesting that we moderate the language there by removing the impression that there is no theoretical support, when it appears there is some or limited theoretical support. 49.199.112.144 (talk) 06:46, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

There is obvious intellectual hypocrisy here. The zealous overprotection of the article does not comply with WP standards. Favouring 20 year old quotes over all the RS material that has since emerged is a beautiful example of circular reasoning. Some editors here claim that scientists would be clamouring for hydrinos yet fail to realise that the exact human frailty on display here operates amongst scientists as well. If you have already decided something can't be true, then no end of evidence will persuade you to do your due diligence, you will instead invest heavily is smear, innuendo, and most of all - ingorance. Ignorance derives from the root "to ignore" - just like these sorts of edit/discussion requests are ignored. Self-fulfilling blindness is how people sleep well at night, and if they're lucky their passive-aggressive ignorance will slow down developments enough that they can retire whilst still clinging to and cherishing their favoured world view. It is no accident that science progresses one funeral at a time. So too with WP!! 180.250.27.131 (talk) 05:38, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia cautiously reflects the scientific mainstream. This is a general-audience tertiary source, not a journal nor any other publisher of original research. If this is a failing of scientists, so be it, but it is not one that Wikipedia is equipped to solve. Grayfell (talk) 05:46, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
I don't think anyone is suggesting WP solve such problems. The main issue here is entirely internal to WP - the observation above merely points out how WP is reflecting the political defects of science. Note also that it is simply not possible to reflect the so called mainstream - aferall, who knows what that is?? All we have are RS to draw upon. But some editors would rather prop up their own belief of what the mainstream is rather than factoring in what actual RS materials say. It is notable that there is yet to be a single argument against moderating the language from "no" theoretical basis to "limited" - just a lot of ignoring inconvenient RS content. 180.250.27.131 (talk) 03:58, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
