China tackles Fusion and Energy

CHINA’S FUSION BREAKTHROUGH

By now, we've all become accustomed to hearing nears of this or that hot fusion technology achieving a "breakthrough," as hydrogen or helium plasmas are sustained for a few milliseconds. These announcements have become almost routine, and they're usually accompanied by commentary to the effect that if humanity could make fusion work, then the age of petroleum and coal would be in declline; as a percentage of the world's energy sources it would gradually decline. Fusion will never, I suppose, entirely supplant other energy sources, but it will nonetheless cause a revolution in our economic and financial structure.

But all that, of course, depends on being able to make it viable, and to make it viable, those plasmas have to be sustained for a lot longer than milliseconds. In fact, they have to be sustained not just for hours, days, or weeks, but pretty much constantly, non-stop, 24/7.

Nonetheless, this article, found and shared by Mr. G.K., is truly significant, for if China has done what it claims to have done, then the age of mere milliseconds of sustained plasmas is over:

That's cute, Germany – China shows the world how fusion is done

Now, stop and think about that... not a few milliseconds, but 102 seconds... that's one minute and forty-two seconds, and as the article notes, they're aiming for 1000 seconds.

As if this is not significant enough, there's this bit of information:

It's hoped the Chinese experiment will be valuable help in building the much-delayed International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor in France. China is a major contributor to the project, which has so far cost over $14bn and is six years behind schedule.

China has expressed irritation at the slow pace of the international project and is conducting its own research in parallel. Unless the international team pulls its socks up, China might well have usable fusion power before the rest of the world.

Yes, that's right, China is a participating nation in the ITER fusion project in France, which, if you've been following the story, is years behind schedule, as the article notes. The Chinese, are fed up, and have struck out on their own. And readers here will recall, they want to build their own version of CERN, even bigger and better.

Stories like this do raise questions, and they also clarify perhaps why the Rockefeller foundations have divested themselves of petroleum investments(or so we were told last year).

One does not need to say anything more here about this development, so I won't, save, that this is definitely one to watch.

See you on the flip side...

    1. Thanks for the link WalkingDead problem this is still proof of concept. When will we see the real McCoy we have been waiting for almost three generations I want my nuclear fusion reactor now.

  1. Interesting! all 3 posts in reply to WalkingDead have been whacked.
    This will be the 4th.
    Empire is an order of extraordinary scope & depth. Yet it is also precarious. It confronts a set of interlocking crises. Empire is flush with power & cash, yet close to chaos.

      1. I’m not so sure “someone” isn’t messing around with Dr. Farrell’s site a little bit. I could be wrong. You know his site isn’t on “their” favorites list due to its content. Other sites I occasionally visit have been under attack by “someone” also recently.
        I sincerely hope this isn’t the case.

          There are many suspects in information warfare; from malware to purposed interventions. Many are just AI bots running loose. There are just too many points of intervention; from basically your computer to visited sites, basically anywhere within cyberspace.
          For me it’s become a normalized background noise.

          Love your posts by the way.

    1. Unsure where else to post, but after login and password issues with my Android device, everything is now ok. I link to GDS, I’m logged in no problems.

  2. Man whenever I hear about fusion or thermonuclear reactors I get nervous , it seems to me mankind is too immature to use these technology’s correctly, doesn’t Russia take the stand of oil being abiotic? A bigger CERN in China ?
    Scary as hell

  3. The more info released on cold fusion the safer I feel. I re-figured it out from clues left by Stan Myers years ago. Its the end of the precious metals market once it gets perfected. That guy that ran his car on water in the 70’s didn’t live long after playing around with heavy hydrogen’s other uses. It appears a few researchers have mastered the copper into nickel cold fusion reactor. Others used other elements to donate electrons for heavy hydrogen to become helium. Once an element permanently gives up an electron it has to give up a proton and drops down to the next element on the periodic table. It’s the release of the proton and possible neutrons that gives off tremendous excess energy. Some load a metal sponge with heavy hydrogen then pop it into a microwave to get the party started but there are several ways to accomplish this. Passing an electric current of high voltage through a heavy hydrogen loaded browns gas through a metal sponge might be another.

  4. Sometimes there is an advantage to being outside the system…

    It has been evident for some time that there is a ‘conflict of interest’ between the current order (banksters, oil/coal interests, carmakers, etc.) and breakthrough technologies – of which, fusion research is the most obvious. Hence, the lackadaisical progress of the ITER fusion project, amongst others. “Let’s just string it out ’til we’re past peak oil… HeHeHe”

    One of China’s strengths is pragmatism. They obviously know that ‘the fix is in’ as far as operational fusion plant progress. Some-a-day… It is to their credit that they are pursuing their own path to energy self-sufficiency.

    It is kind of funny that the ‘language’ spoken on the “Serenity” SF series is a kind of half-English, half-Chinese ‘blend’. Perhaps the show’s producers/writers could see the way the wind was blowing…

    1. @”It is kind of funny that the ‘language’ spoken on the “Serenity” SF series is a kind of half-English, half-Chinese ‘blend’. Perhaps the show’s producers/writers could see the way the wind was blowing…”

      @”It is kind of funny that the ‘language’ spoken on the “Serenity” SF series is a kind of half-English, half-Chinese ‘blend’. Perhaps the show’s producers/writers could see the way the wind was blowing…”

      One’d be surprised see how much “truth” and “half-truth” can be found in those Sci-fi shows, and how much they might relate to real world events of great significance.

      Take the SF series “the Event” for an example, they used real footage/and the event of that mysterious “contrail” spotted off the coast of Los Angeles back in late 2010 in the show, attributing it to the doings of a “hostile alien group” trying to take over earth by massively reducing its indigenous population…

      At the end of 2015, the Chinese president Xi jinping paid an official visit to the U.S, one of the “breakthrough” bilateral agreement reached during that visit was allowing a Chinese company to build a high-speed rail from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
      But Xi’s first stop was Seattle, a city located in northern part of Western Coast of the U.S. bordering Canada, as opposed to Los Angeles which is located to the Southern part of the Western Coast bordering Mexico.

      Now, considering these two interesting facts,
      – while negotiating a deal to building the Los Angeles high-speed railway in the U.S, the Chinese were also bidding to build a high-speed rail in Mexico back in 2014,
      – and there was an intriguing report from the same year saying the Chinese want to build a high-speed rail via the Bering Strait to “North America”, with upgraded train speed up to 10 times faster than the currently operational ones.

      if they really want to connect “euro-asia” landmass with “North-America” by means of effective land transportation systems such as “high-speed rail”,
      – they need to use the “Bering Strait”
      – they need to upgrade the current technology in “high-speed rail” to make the infrastructure building meaningful
      and the first stop in “North America” for such proposed railway project would be “Alaska”, in other words, it cant be done without participation from the U.S. side, and thats one of the reasons why the “Los Angeles” high-speed railway bilateral agreement struck last year might be of a great significance, because it was in a way “a step forward” into the direction for even more ambitious infrastructure projects, such as the rumored “Bering-Strait” high-speed service, which wouldnt be possible without the consent from the American government.

      Once the Los-Angeles high-speed railway completes and operates successfully, in the future, its possible that one might see that service extended northward to Seattle, even further northward to “Alaska” via Vancouver of Canada, while in the South extending to Mexico.
      Coupled with the fact the Chinese are alo simultaneously trying to pursue similar infrastructure projects in “South-East Asia”, as they have already secured contracts to build high-speed rails in Thailand and Indonesia etc, while also expressing an interest in Australia’s Northern Territory development project (in other words, connecting Australia more to Asia-Pacific region by helping develop its Northern part that is geographically closer to the region), this is why the establishment of the AIIB last year was so significant.

      So, if one look at the “big picture” here, what the Chinese seem to be doing, with all those international high-speed rail biddings, is creating a “trans-Pacific high way” via means of advanced transportation systems, to encompass such large geographical area as opposed to the currently domestic operational high-speed service lines, its no wonder the train speed needs to be upgraded to 10 times faster.

      isnt it oddly ‘coincidental’ that the “breakthrough” in this long-term ambition involves the city of “Los Angeles”, the same place not only where that mysterious “contrail” was seen back in 2010, which was promptly made into a ‘negative spin’ in the Sci-fi series “The Event”, but also the spot of famous “Battle of Los Angeles”, incidentally, also about a “hostle Alien” intruding American airspace.

      One might also regard this “trans-Pacific high way”, a part of the “new Silk Road” initiative, seeing the Chinese are also seeking to extend the high-speed rails in South-America, in Arica, and in Europe.
      When was the last time the Chinese ever did something like this or at least comparable to this undertaking in their millennia of “official textbook history”?
      600 years ago, when Ming dynasty’s “treasure fleets” under Admiral Zheng He traverse the oceans for more than 30 decades, extending trade and diplomatic relations as far as to Africa, with new evidences to suggest they even reached the ‘Americas’ and Europe, and one of the cultural reason why they did plunder and pillage other cultures and peoples like the colonial Europeans did shortly afterwards was because of the Chinese “Confucian ideal” of a “harmonious world”.
      Now, do you think its merely a “coincidence” that the Chinese of 21th century just happened to be embarking on another “Silk Road building” endeavor, and they happen to have their
      ‘chief tool’ for achieving it, their ‘high-speed train’ , called “the train of Harmony”, named after the same “Confucian ideal”?
      that its just a coincidence, that the Ming emperor Yongle who was responsible for the historical endeavors of the “treasure fleet” also build the “forbidden city”, that the largest hall in the imperial palace happens to be called “The Hall of Supreme Harmony”?

      But let’s just expand this a little further,
      for years, Chinese scholars are intrigued by the “irregularity” in the layout of the founding Ming emperor’s mausoleum, until in the 70s when a scholar discovered while looking at aerial photos of the mausoleum as he realized the “irregularity” in its layout is due to the fact the entire complex is modelled after the constellation “Big Dipper”,
      as a unmarked 17th century “Ming loyalist” tomb that was uncovered by archaeologists in a South-Western province, where they also found a carving of the constellation “Big Dipper” inside his sarcophagus. Clearly, the Ming Chinese had some kind of deep association with the constellation “Big Dipper”, to the point they would build their mausoleum modelled after it or carve it inside their coffin, in other words, to these Ming Chinese, even in death, their connection to the constellation can not be severed.

      Now, is it just another “coincidence”, that the current “Communist government” of China just happened to have named their version of the global “Navigation Satellite System” as “Beidou”, a Chinese asterism equivalent to the “Big Dipper”,

      that they secretly performed an ancient ritual ceremony of ” Heaven worshipping” during their Chang’e 3 unmanned lunar landing mission,
      and the fact the “Temple of Heaven” in Beijing was also built by the Ming dynasty, during which time the Chinese were estalishing a huge global network of trade and diplomacy with their technologically advanced “treasure fleets” back in 1420s was also just a “coincidence”? or they just substituted “treasure fleets” with “high-speed trains”.

      Dr.Farrell was rightly to point out in one of his blogs where he was talking about increasing space-cooperation between the Russians and the Chinese, in particular, their plan of joining their respective GLONASS and Beidou satellite navigational systems, even with the American GPS system,
      that the massive infrastructure buildings planned by joint Sino-Russian governments on “Euro-Asia” landmass are kind of ‘preparation’ for massively expanding into ‘Space’.

      So, here is the question, do you think humanity should still be using coals and petrols and nuclear as means for global transportation and energy consumption when they already entered a true “space-age” where they have become a ‘space-faring species’?

      in that sense, im not surprised at learning the Chinese are making ‘breakthrough’ in “fusion” technology, this was actually another ‘half-true’ that was revealed by the 2009 Sci-fi series, “The Visitors/V”, the Aliens plan to help humanity to build a new type of efficient energy consumption by utilizing the same “blue energy” that was used in their huge spaceships, wich which power it can satisfy an entire city’s energy needs.

      like i said, we live in a unique time, the more one understands the deeper causes and reasons behind these foundamental changes taking place right before our eyes, the more it will benefit immensely to a person spiritual development because ultimately everyone “dies”, yet ‘death’ is but only the beginning of the journey,
      and thats the key reason why a ‘superior person’ choose to witness this process at this crucial juncture in human history on earth.

      1. Henry, thank you for the long post. I am a ‘fan’ of Admiral Zheng He, and am one of those who suspect the Chinese were true world-travelers for a time. I also wonder what the world would have been like if the Chinese had not suddenly-gone ‘insular’, destroyed their ocean-worthy fleets, and lost their technological lead. (I also wonder if Admiral Zheng He’s fleet records & maps will be found within the funerary Pyramid of his Emperor…)

        (I believe one sentence in your post was meant to read, ‘…and one of the cultural reason why they did *NOT* plunder and pillage other cultures and peoples like the colonial Europeans did shortly afterwards was because of the Chinese “Confucian ideal” of a “harmonious world”.’)

        I AM curious about the new Chinese ‘outreach’ to the world. Perhaps, they learned the hard way that they became ‘victims’ to the European powers (especially British) when China lost the technological leadership. “Never Again.” Your ‘high-speed railway’ movement is interesting, in that regard. Plus, the Chinese converting of US Bonds to buying-up of physical and intellectual property.

        I enjoyed your symbolic-play around Harmony as to deep-state motivations. The French/British have named several spacecraft for Egyptian gods like Osiris & Isis, to give a clue to their deep-state ‘allegiance’.

        The main thing I am curious about with China is whether the ‘Dragons’ are a part of the NWO or apart from the NWO. As part of that, I wonder whether the ‘Eight Immortals’ are still around and whether they have their fingers in the pie…

  5. China maybe among the few honest brokers in this scientific kabuki theater. Which has been going on for about three generations now. Where has the money really been use for all these decades and where has it gone to and for what purpose. Fusion power like the Space program has all the makings of a dog and pony show what will our oligarchs do when they drain the last cent from us proles bank accounts, what’s their end game. Do they really understand economics do they really think.

  6. One might suspect that fusion reactors have already been developed by the dark side/breakaway group. How else would you power your non existent space craft? Hence the lack of haste to develop it for the public domain.
    The global corporations, which run the dark projects in their infinitely compartmentalized structures, may well be a century ahead of the rest of humanity technologically; however, their feudalistic/
    fascist approach to everything else places them far behind the rest of us in many ways and is not sustainable in the long run. The public projects are just another method of draining money from the taxpayer into their coffers.
    Hence the rush to establish their NWO through trade agreements, wars, and economic methods. In order for the bankers/industrialists (globalists) to come out on top, they need to bring the entire system down and reduce the population significantly while taking ownership of the land and resources. You might infer they are in the process of foreclosing on the entire planet one nation at a time. The Ukraine and Greece are the latest victims of this with every other nation in their crosshairs. The US and many other nations were purchased long ago with the establishment of the privately owned central banks; their land, resources, and even their citizens used as collateral for their fiat currency loans.
    The Chinese may have gleaned hints of this from their constant hacking enterprises, as well as the Russians, and may well be one of the reasons for their partnership.

    1. “…a century ahead of the rest of humanity technologically; however, their feudalistic/fascist approach to everything else places them far behind the rest of us in many ways and is not sustainable in the long run.”

      Would that these words of WD could be branded on the backside of every reader.

      Another great Giza post, and I appreciate how the new concept was rolled out in JPF’s opening sentence. Maybe there will be a NEARS AND VEERS FROM THE NEFARIUM on or about April 1.

      1. Good point on the “it’s not sustainable in the long run”.
        The driving force in humanity is intrinsic, not extrinsic. They know the science yet they make the opposite appear to be true. And when our attention is focused on the extrinsic, according to studies, guess what? Creativity and thought diminishes…in short what makes one human. Pardon the rant..

    2. Well said WalkingDead.
      Have you heard of a new emergence system of empire that’s being effected through a regime of biopower?
      A new planetary regime in which economic, administrative, military, and communicative components combine to create a system of power. A system of rule crystalized by the world market. Empire is then governed by a globalized capitalism through network power. It’s decentered, multilayered institutional agencies include nation-states but extend to include multinational corporations, world economic bodies like the IMF, international organizations like the UN, even ono-governmental organizations like the Red Cross. What results from the integration of these nodes is an imperium more comprehensive than any previous one. Capital now taps its subjects’ energies at multiple points: not just as workers[as labor power] but also as consumers[the mindshare targeted by marketers], as learners[university degrees as vocational preparation], and even as a source of new materials[the bio-value extracted for genetic engineering/genetic archeological maps]. Empire is thus a regime of Biopower – exploiting social life in its entirety[CERN?] Capital then is increasingly everywhere and has subsumed increasingly everything.

      1. Walking Dead
        My relatively long reply to you was scrubbed by the censor bot.
        Rebellion against this biopower regime[explained in above missing post] is upsurging at many points, from work to school to leisure, and from many agencies, including workers and unions but also from indigenous communities struggling over land rights, students opposing the corporate campuses, antipoverty groups fighting for a living wage, migrants contesting the oppression of borders, open-source advocates promoting knowledge sharing, and many more.

      2. What clued me into the above two posts[one MIA] is a group of Serbian digital artists-developers based their Civilization IV: Age of Empire on these highly developed multilevel power apparatuses of globalized capital. It is also stressed the importance of the organized globalized media spectacle, and its various emotion machines, in-sync w/the ongoing struggles.
