In a newly released article by Moon [1], the author introduces the label of "cold fission" to describe the transmutation reactions associated with recent "table-top" experiments manifesting mass-energy release. Einstein would have welcomed this discovery as something different and better, because to the average person he is credited with a naive transition from E = mc2 to the atom bomb. And he certainly was a compassionate pacifist who would rather see his postulate of mass-energy harnessed in a small table-top environment that is useful rather than an insidious device that can flash a city to oblivion in a split second.

Einstein [among others] reasoned that rest mass, m0, must have energy, m0c2. This was later proven to be true from the initial discovery of isotopic mass change in beta decay all the way to modern mass-energy changes in fission and fusion. More recently, we have seen the discovery of how low-temperature fusion and transmutation releases subtle mass-energy within the lattices and electrolytes of new hydrogen energy systems. Some of these transmutation reactions have the characteristics of traditional fission, i.e., a splitting of atoms to lower atomic numbers having an overall loss in mass, and the subsequent release of excess mass-energy to account for the loss in mass.

The sequential triad of energetic triggers consisting of a conventional activation such as chemical or electromagnetic, that triggers a fission reaction that, in turn, triggers a fusion reaction is the exact formula for the hydrogen bomb. But to have this reduced to a micro-scale that can be controlled in the laboratory to produce useful energy is a major step in the goal to safely harness the use of mass-energy. And the resulting fusions do not necessarily have to be d-d type fusion of pairs of identical isotopes. We have seen the release of energy in fusions of protons colliding into larger nuclei that produce benign isotopes that also result in the release of excess energy to account for an overall loss of mass of the sum of the constituents [e.g., Neal-Gleeson Process].

Thus in summary, all types of known and newly discovered mass-energy reactions are emerging from low temperature table-top experiments, including a new type of fusion consisting of collisions with protons or deuterium ions into larger atoms in lattices and/or electrolytes. Then we have a whole new system that is not in any textbook anywhere. This is why the application of known traditional fusion systems fails to explain the results of table-top mass-energy experiments in terms of the "Coulomb barrier" postulate.

New theories, new aethers, and new particles [2-12] have established a new science that goes back to where Einstein left off following the publication of groundbreaking and historical articles in 1905 [13,14]. In the interest of peace and "infinite energy," Einstein would have wanted it this way.
