More about E-cat, gold and LENR

Seriously, the idea of making gold this way is a disservice to the idea of wealth creation.  When it comes to gold, you can't do anything with it.  Sure, it is a traditional store of value, but you can't use it for much of anything. 

Contrast this with platinum, which can be used for catalysts.  You can make fuel cells much more affordable if you can come up with a source of platinum.  I can look further into that today, if I get the time.

If you want platinum, you can mine it, or in this case, you can even make it.  But why?  Platinum is usually found with platinum group metals, and you have to start with a platinum group metal (pgm) in order to get it to platinum by way of neutrons and beta decays.  Since pgms are valuable in their own right, it makes sense to use it all, instead of converting it to platinum.  But you may be able to convert it if you want more platinum.  For this, you need neutrons. 

The trouble with neutrons is that it this means radioactivity, which is a problem.  You don't want to go there.

Rather than make platinum from pgms, you can mine them off the moon.  Or some folks think you can.  This is what I'll look into further, since I purchased Wingo's book "Moonrush".  It is about mining the moon for pgms, if I am not mistaken.

I am going to check back into Platinum Moon, which I read last year and wrote about on this blog.  The author is said to have gotten his inspiration from Wingo's book.
