the LaRouche Show -
"The Second Law"
stated (Feb. 27, 2010) that the Second Law of Thermodynamics is an based on two
critically dangerous axiomatic
errors - 1. that the Universe and man is a closed system, and 2. that
everything is subject to entropy by which the Universe is perceived as winding
down towards a 'zero-energy' state. While this does not accord with the consensus
in today's 'science' of astrophysics, it does accord however with the
overwhelming evidence that the Universe itself is providing of itself.
According to this evidence the Universe is not a closed system, but is
"unbounded" as Einstein had put it, and is not winding down
towards an entropic energy death, but is self-powering and expanding in
all aspects, quantitatively and qualitatively.
evidence is clearly visible
The evidence presents
the anti-entropic nature of the Universe. It speaks of a universe in which
everything is interconnected with vast
plasma-electric power streams that are ultimately powered by the Universe
itself. Plasma-electric currents are typically self-aligned into filaments
of coaxial-type Birkeland currents. These Birkeland filaments are visible everywhere
in the Universe as far distant as we care to look or are able to look. We find them pervading the galaxies, and we find them pervading the cosmos.
There, we see entire galaxies strung out
along filamentary lines, like beads on a thread, forming vast networks of
strings of galaxies along these lines, as is shown above. The above
picture is not an image of stars, but of galaxies organized along the
plasma-electric currents that power them.
The above picture is a
portion of a larger picture of 35,000 interlinked galaxies, which itself
is covering a
mere 1 degree square portion of the view of the cosmos and comprises
roughly 25% of what is named the "Capodimonte Deep Field". Click
here for a larger view the Capodimonte Deep Field - a view of 35,000 galaxies.
The vast interconnecting
plasma-electric filament lines that are visible everywhere, are also
visible in extremely distant views across 500 million
light-years and more. These self-organizing Birkeland currents, though
vast in the cosmos, are easily replicated in the small in the laboratory.
They are not unfamiliar to anyone. They are visible in the form of lightning
strikes. They are even visible in children's toys,
in the case of the plasma sphere. In the cosmos the Birkeland currents
(named after the discoverer) obviously don't exist for entertainment
purposes, but are the power-flows that power the Universe, in which
the Universe unfolds, apparently without bounds and in an expanding and
constructive mode, and anti-entropic mode.
The evidence that the
Universe presents of itself is not that of a closed
system, but one that is endlessly open and developing, and is not running down but is
self-powering and expanding. The electric force, like gravity, is a force
that has intergalactic reach, however its force is
39 orders of magnitude greater than that of gravity, and it diminishes linear with
distance rather than with the square of the distance as does gravity. This
quality makes the electric force the most far-reaching and powerful forces
in the Universe, second only to the nuclear strong-force.
On the LaRouche show
of Feb. 27, 2010, which was focused on exposing the axiomatic error
inherent in the Second Law of
Thermodynamics, it was stated that contrary to the widely accepted false assumptions
misnamed law, the Universe,
life, and man, are not merely "not entropic" but are actively
"anti-entropic." Instead of winding down by their very nature, they are
actively expanding in quantity, quality, and power, towards ever-higher
levels of expression. This well-presented view is evidently correct, since all available
evidence supports the anti-entropic perception of the Universe.
this creates a paradox in as much as the nuclear-fusion power concept, that
is presently being pursued intensively and by many people and
runs contrary to the principle of "anti-entropy."
is based on the assumption that all aspects of the universe are basically
closed system, such as our solar system which is deemed to exist isolated
in space, and being powered by a self-consuming process by -- a fusion
furnace operating inside the Sun, which is consuming its fuel and is thereby winding
down towards an eventual heat-death and self-extinction. The very foundation of the fusion-powered Sun is
an axiomatic error that is apparently intentionally built on the concept
of entropy as a means for tying science into knots. It is a part of the
Big Bang theory of the Universe, according to which the Universe was born
and gained all of its energy in a giant explosion without having had a
prior existence, and which is from the moment of its birth winding down
and dissipating. The Big Bang theory was conjured up in the workshops of
empire, evidently along the policy line of forcing the devolution of
science as pioneered Paoplo Sarpi in an effort to save the existence of
the system of empire, and as later carried forward by H.G. Wells and the
Fabian society, though Wells felt the Fabiens were not radical enough in
that direction. The Big Bang theory came out of this background,
originating from the Royal Society. It emerged roughly coincidentally with
the dawn of the unfolding evidence of the electric cosmology and its
promise for infinite energy resources for mankind. (see: The
Electric Universe ) The
fusion-powered sun is an element of the Big Bang theory where everything
is gravity bound and self-isolated, where the only ruling force is
gravity, the weakest force in the Universe. In order to render this
entropic concept to be acceptable, the concept of the fusion-powered Sun
was invented, similar to the epicycles that astronomers like Ptolemy conjured
up to make the visible evidence fit the axioms of an imposed theory.
Entropy is presently
the mainstay of the existence of empire, forcing the devolution of
everything that society depends on, including science, culture, economics,
finance, politics, and so on. The fusion-Sun came out this background, but
there exits no evidence for it. When the process that creates sunspots
tears out a chunk of the photosphere, they layer below is darker (colder)
not brighter as it should be if the Sun was heated from the inside. This
is just one of many aspects of evidence that counter the fusion-Sun
theory, which however is vehemently protected. The evidence is however consistent
in every respect with electric cosmology that recognizes a surface heated
Sun, powered in an electric arc-mode by the plasma-electric currents that
pervade and power the Universe. Thus we have two models before us, an
entropic model of a closed solar-system that defines a self-consuming
fusion-powered Sun, and an anti-entropic model of an open solar-system
that exists as a part of the Universe is powered by the power streams that
power the Universe as a whole, every galaxy, and every star and sun within
Since according to all
evidence that defines the anti-entropic model as real, the Universe has no
need of a fusion-powered Sun, and of fusion power itself, so that a
principle for the fusion-power concept does not really exist in the
Universe. In fact, evidence for the opposite exits, of natural principles
than inhibit fusion-powered energy production as protective measure
against run-away fusion. Every fusion ignition that mankind has produced
has blown itself out, from the hydrogen bomb to the reactor contained
fusion. The general experience in nuclear-fusion development has been that
we are running headlong against a natural principle that inhibits the
process. The harder we push the process, the greater the problems become
that loom before us. Indeed, why would the Universe have created a
principle that reflects entropy, which runs contrary against its every
nature that is anti-entropic?
If we stand back from
the axioms that support nuclear fusion, we invariably ask ourselves the
same question, who needs it? We don't have any need for it. We have vast
energy resources for thorium fission power laying unused at our feet, with
the same useful energy content (per ton) that the fusion fuel would offer.
Why would we bother then with nuclear fusion? In fact by tying ourselves
into knots over this issue, we blind ourselves to the infinite galactic
energy resources that we have within our reach. With
electric power-flows on the galactic scale, who needs nuclear fusion? (see: Absolute
There exists no evidence for
nuclear-fusion power being produced anywhere in the Universe, so why would
we bother? Evidently our doing so is the intention of those forces
who have a sinister self-interest in keeping mankind small, impotent, tied
into knots, and thereby self-defeating. These are the processes of empire,
The paradox of
We do run into a paradox
when we aim to develop nuclear-fusion power that is an imaginary object of
en entropic world-view, but for which evidently no principle exists in the
Universe as it is not happening anywhere. The collective experience has
been for almost the last 50 years, that the more the process is attempted
the greater the problems become that pop into view, which altogether make
it rather plain that practical and useful fusion-power cannot be achieved.
You may protest here,
but the evidence against practical fusion-power is overwhelming. I have
spent two months compiling the evidence, including the political dimension
behind it. It you take care to examine the evidence you will most definitely agree
that fusion-power has no future, and that it is not needed either when far
better power options exist that are already developed, ready to be used,
for which we have more
fuel resources on hand than we can possibly use up until the next
increment in power application is implemented.
There really exists no
need to compromise on principle by speaking about an anti-entropic
universe and resorting to a power-production process that has its origin
in axioms of entropy. It is not possible to go into two directions at
once. Mentally, to do this, amounts to an act of self-denial. The key for
the advancement of civilization is not science itself, but a commitment to
principle that directs science. This all by itself, closes the door to
nuclear-fusion power development. No, saying this does not make me a
traitor, but a liberator. The denial of
principle is in itself entropic,
condemning mankind to death like a wilting flower. Society's denial of
nuclear fission power is one aspect of it's self-wilting. Trapping society into nuclear-fusion
power development, that has no natural principle to stand on, and is
correspondingly failing, is an another
aspect of what looks like a two-pronged effort in the same direction,
towards smallness and impotence. And why would we want fusion power
dream of high-density power production. Fusion
takes us into the opposite direction, to gargantuan infrastructures for
puny returns, and even those become blocked by evermore barriers. In
comparison with the size of the infrastructures that are proposed,
windmills are more efficient. Ironically, what fusion power promises,
fission power delivers, which is build on a natural principle.
also dream of high-density power-flux when we speak of fusion power.
Sure, fusions gives us immensely high temperatures and power-flux
densities, but only for a few nanoseconds, and this comes with a neutron
burst that exceeds that of fission reactors 100-fold in intensity, which
closes the door on practical power systems. Ironically, all the
high-energy and high temperature processes in the universe are not fusion
powered, but are electrically powered. Electric power is evidently the
most efficient power process, since the Universe defaults to it as the
most efficient process available for large-scale action. We utilize a tiny
bit of this efficiency with the electric arc furnace that can melt a 100
ton-charge of steel in an hour (tap to tap time).
further dream of infinite power resources.
In reality, the fusion-fuel resource, deuterium, is one of the most
difficult to extract resource in terms of reduction efforts. While it is abundant
in the sea, it is highly diluted, so that it takes the processing of
nearly 700,000 tons of water to produce one ton of fusion fuel that is
equal in usable energy-content to one ton of thorium, which can fuel a 1
GW reactor for a year. There are presently two million tons of thorium
readily available in known deposits, without even looking very hard. These
are in practice infinite power resources for the short duration that it
will take until we learn to tap into the galactic power grid that's right
at our doorstep.
So who needs fusion
power? The Universe has no need for it. We have no need for it either.
Only the masters of empire need it to tie us into knots with it.
here for my study of the evidence
In order to get out of
this trap we need to learn the principle of anti-entropy.
is not exempted from the question of "Entropy or Anti-Entropy"
Science exists for
discovering universal principles, for understanding truth, and for
applying them towards living efficiently. Since these can only be found in
the realm of anti-entropy, science is bound to it. This does not mean that
al the decades of research into nuclear fusion power has been in vain. To
the contrary, the ever-increasing inability of science and technology to
make nuclear-fusion power a practical and efficient reality highlights the
vast 'distance' between concepts based on entropy and those based on
anti-entropy. The discovery of this 'distance' is highly valuable, because
fundamentally all the dangers and problems that beset civilization are
reflective of the fundamental question of Entropy or Anti-Entropy. This
question is at the center of everything. It is the central question in Shakespeare's
Hamlet, illustrating the danger that an entropic-based society poses to
itself. It is also the central question in Schiller's Don Carlos were
betrayal upon betrayal happens for axioms of entropy with the
corresponding results, while an anti-entropic should govern all actions.
We need to focus on the underlying basic question, because betrayal and
impotence have become the chief hallmark of our time, which are squarely
rooted in entropy, often intentionally for a wide variety of reasons.
is more efficient to stay away from denials of principle.
The development of
fusion power is a denial of the principle of anti-entropy. The Universe is
self-constructive, not self-destructive. The nuclear fusion that is known
to occur on the Sun is occurring at the surface in the electric arc
reaction zone, the photosphere. This appears to be not for power
generation, but is instead a power-consuming fusion for the construction
of atoms from the incoming plasma streams. The spectral detection of more
than 60 elements in the photosphere testifies of this constructive fusion
process, which might include the entire spectrum of elements. Mankind's
science becomes useless in its pursuit if it aims into the contrary
direction, away from where the principles of the universe are located.
Science is ultimately a process of the discovery of the truth. Its
progress stops when it no longer aims for the discovery of universal
principles, which are inherently efficient, but aims to create its own
principles at will. The ever-greater barriers that are encountered in
fusion-power science, seem to tell us too, that were are looking in the
wrong direction. Fusion-power has become an axiomatic obsession with a
promise it cannot deliver, while efficient natural processes exist such as
the LFTR (thorium fission) that do deliver those very promises, but which
are ignored, mostly for political reasons.
The sooner that
one steps away from the trap of surging 'forward' in the wrong direction, the sooner
one's attention will become directed
towards the development of the natural principles that lay at our feet,
which offer a platform for freedom on the principle of anti-entropy. There
are enough elegant principles available to power mankind's energy needs,
and also space transportation
such as with ion engines. There is enough known about these natural
processes to start the application development right away, not fifty years from
now. Our denial of the natural principle, in favor of unnatural pursuits, appears to be the biggest blocking factor we have standing
against us. Sure, it is hard to step away from this error built on ancient
axioms that are supported and hailed in consensus science that frequently
serves political objectives contrary to what is essential for civilization.
But with a right focus it is possible to do this. Indeed, if we ignore the
natural efficient principles that inherently reflect the principle of
anti-entropy, how can we ever hope to solve the political problems of our
world that are essentially arbitrary axiomatic constructs without
In time, we will
likely get to the point of stepping away from the axiomatic pursuit of
entropic concepts, as we really have no other option open. It just
depends on if, and how soon, we wish to experience the freedom that comes
with being true to universal principle, and for how long we remain victims of
the destructive axiomatic games that are afoot in countless ways, and of
falsely directed science.
move with the Universe that is anti-entropic in nature, and not against it
Since anti-entropy is
the principle of the Universe, let's move with it. Anti-entropy is the
principle for creating a renaissance. It is our efficient path to it. This,
or course, means stepping away from anything
rooted in the axioms of entropy, such as the Big-Bang Cosmology, the Fusion
Sun, Black Holes, Dark Matter, Alternate Realities, and that we devote ourselves
to building up the universe of our civilization with the power of our
humanity that reflects the nature of the Universe - and this not a hundred years from now, but now. Each human being has
the potential to come to this point now. In this potential we are rich. The principles of the
Universe are our riches, and our humanity is defined by our acknowledging
these principles in life, in culture, in science, in politics, and in economics.

key answer to the question of Entropy or Anti-Entropy
As we are standing at
the threshold to a new era, the key answer to the question of Entropy or
Anti-Entropy, in respect to nuclear-fusion energy, is not located in what
we might have in half a century from now and may never attain, but is
located in what we do have. Ironically, what we do have is infinitely
richer than what we dream about as something we might have. Anti-Entropy
begins with what is real to us at the starting gate, as a foundation for
For an energy policy,
this anti-entropic hot start begins with the Liquid Fluoride Thorium
Reactor (LFTR). We don't need to build uranium reactors in pressure
vessels, which America can no longer build. Nor do we need to build
uranium enrichments plants, or heavy water plants, and exotic fuel
processing plants. All we need is salt, graphite, and thorium. We don't
even need to go through a years-long certification process. LFTR has has
been certified in its 5-year test run.
The USA, all by
itself, has over 900,000 tons of the thorium reactor fuel available in
known and accessible deposits. Anti-entropy means that we move foreword
with the strongest suit that we have for a rapid start to build a world
that is orders of magnitude farther ahead than what we aim to rebuild. And
the LFTR is also suited for mobile applications, ships, even trains. Here
is an example of what we have presently at had to move forwards with on a
platform of natural principles that have been discovered, and tested, and
proven to work.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory reactor
Research during the 1970-76 timeframe resulted in a Molten Salt
Reactor ( MSR) design which was was to be moderated by graphite with a 4
year replacement schedule, and a secondary coolant, with a peak
operating temperature of 705 °C.
molten salt reactor offers many potential advantages:

temperature coefficient of reactivity)

supply of Thorium
to breed U-233 fuel.

amount of waste fission products is 10 times less (per GWh) and

The advantages are cited by Weinberg and his associates at Oak Ridge
It is safe to
operate and maintain: Molten fluoride salts are mechanically and
chemically stable at sea-level pressures at intense heats and
radioactivity. Fluoride combines ionically with almost any
transmutation product, keeping it out of circulation. Even radioactive
gases — notably xenon-135,
an important neutron
absorber — come out in a predictable, containable place,
where the fuel is coolest and most dispersed, namely the pump bowl.
Even given an accident, dispersion into a biome is unlikely. The salts
do not burn in air or water, and the fluoride salts of the actinides
and radioactive fission products are generally not soluble in water.
There's no high
pressure steam in the core, just low-pressure molten salt. This means
that the MSR's core cannot have a steam explosion, and does not need
the most expensive item in a light water reactor, a high-pressure
steam vessel for the core. Instead, there is a vat and low-pressure
pipes (for molten salt) constructed of thick sheet metal. The metal is
an exotic nickel alloy that resists heat and corrosion, Hastelloy-N,
but there is much less of it, and the thin metal is less expensive to
form and weld.
breeder reactor uses low-energy thermal
neutrons, similarly to light
water reactors. It is therefore much safer than the touchy fast-neutron
breeder reactors that the uranium-to-plutonium
fuel cycle requires. The thorium fuel cycle therefore combines
safe reactors, a long-term source of abundant fuel, and no need for
expensive fuel-enrichment facilities.
molten-salt-fueled reactor operates much hotter than LWR reactors,
from 650 °C in the tested MSR and related designs, and to as hot
as 950 °C in untested designs. Thus, very efficient Brayton
turbine) generators are possible. The MSRE (experimental) already
demonstrated operation at 650°C, making the MSR the most advanced of
the "generation IV reactors." The efficiency from high
temperatures reduces fuel use, waste emission and the cost of
auxiliary equipment (major capital expenses) by 50% or more.
MSRs work in small
sizes, as well as large, so a utility could easily build several small
reactors (say 100 MWe) from income, reducing interest expense and
Molten salt fuel
reactors are not experimental. Several have been constructed and
operated at 650 °C temperatures for extended times, with simple,
practical validated designs. There's no need for new science at all,
and very little risk in engineering new, larger or modular designs.
In most new
reactor designs, the longest-lead item is the safety testing of solid
fuel elements. Fuel tests for a new reactor design usually must cover
several three-year refueling cycles, and therefore take more than ten
years. Since the MSR uses molten salts, the fuel has already been
validated, and development can proceed more quickly.
The reactor, like
all nuclear plants, has little effect on biomes.
In particular, it uses only small amounts of land, relatively small
amounts of construction, and the waste is separated from the biome,
unlike both fossil and renewable energy projects.
