    Would there be a conference call for people who can participate but cannot attend. If so, what is the telephone number?

    A major part of Brett's book seems to be the "Semelweiss effect" - that rejection of Mill's hydrino hypothesis reflects this effect. Per Wikipedia, this is "the reflex-like tendency to reject new evidence or new knowledge because it contradicts established norms, beliefs or paradigms"

      Physics Essays is peer-reviewed, although it have a very low impact factor. In terms of a review article, it makes no sense to talk about "an independent source" as the best qualified people to write review articles are typically the people who have done the work in the area.

      It is just human nature that will continue the current assumption until proven with sufficient evidence. It is not a either or issue, either you have faith to continue the old and rejecting the old or the faith in the new and revolutionary ideas. To be beneficial, a balance needs to be achieved to shake things out. By the way, this is the same as prejudice. Prejudice until proven wrong. New ideas needs to be challenged that allows the ideas to grow and mature.

    Hi folks, just want to let everyone know that there will be a launch party for the book at Ada's Books on October 13th from 7-9 PM. There will be a shortish presentation, followed by an opportunity to socialize. Books, t-shirts, and framed illustrations will be available.
