Bizarre Quantum Tunneling Observation Throws Out All the Rules; The strange phenomenon of quantum tunneling has been observed in a chemical reaction that defies classical physics. By Elise Cutts, April 4, 2023, Scientific American, https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/bizarre-quantum-tunneling-observation-throws-out-all-the-rules/ Spoiler - the classical physics is wrong, that is the real problem. Einstein was just a math guy making guesses, based in large part on someone else’s work too - Lorentz and Fitzgerald. (p 76, Correcting a Major Error in Modern Science, The Dynamic Ether of Cosmic Space, by James DeMeo, PhD)
The science article: Wild, R., Notzold, M., Simpsom, M., Tran, T.D., Wester, R., Tunnelling measured in a very slow ion-molecule reaction, 1 March 2023, https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-023-05727-z, (Pdf)
The team made a mix of normal hydrogen and deuterium atoms of hydrogen and chilled down to very, very cold temperatures (“cryogenic 22-pole ion trap”) - closer to Kelvin zero which is -459.67 Fahrenheit - no normal chemical movement is likely. Heat encourages reactions to occur.
And then the team measured change in deuterium anions joining with a hydrogen in a reaction: H2 + D- → H- + HD. The exchange of deuterium anions occurred at a constant extremely low rate that is in the range of expected values for quantum tunneling “(5.2 +/- 1.6) x 10 -20 cm3s-1”. (Wild, et al., 2023)
Water has anomalies - it acts funny in different conditions and the fact that a small amount of it is different helps explain some of the anomalies. Quantum effects explain other quirks of water. Hydrogen bonding helps explain surface tension and droplet formation.
“Heavy Water” is also known as deuterium, in addition to the hydrogen atom with a proton and a neutron being called that. Heavy water has two deuterium atoms joined with the oxygen giving the water molecule two additional neutrons worth of mass.
Formula: D2O Normal water: H2O
Melting Point: 3.8 ‘C Melting Point: 0 ‘C, 32 ‘F
IUPAC ID: [2H]2-water IUPAC ID: 1S/H2O/h1H2 / water, oxidane,
dihydrogen oxide or dihydrogen monoxide
Boiling Point: 101.4 ‘C Boiling Point: 100 ‘C, 220 ‘F
Molar mass: 20.076 g/mol Molar mass: 18.02 g/mol (~16 from the Oxygen and 2 from the 2 hydrogens, the deuterium adds ~4 from the 2 deuterium)
Density: 1.11 g/cm3 Density: ~ 1 g/cm3
Deuterium depleted water is not inexpensive and using that as a primary treatment wouldn’t address why the body is collecting too much deuterium, or not removing it adequately from mitochondria. Stop setting the inflammatory fires and there will be less inflammation.
Regarding mitochondrial support nutrients - it is a complex topic, lengthy list and when someone is ill enough with hyperinflammation of whatever sort, brain fog is likely - doing difficult things may not be possible when doing simple things is harder than normal.
In this post about recovery after trauma - either rapid and back to normal, or lingering into worse chronic health (Post-Intensive Care Syndrome, PICS) - I discuss mitochondrial support as the possible difference between the two groups of patients. Deuterium may also be an underlying difference then. Either way, it isn’t easy to do all the self-care steps that can help even without brain fog. Checklists would help. In the post I recommend a live-in recovery facility to help with initial feeding and also cooking and lifestyle classes to learn the new skills and habits that are needed to support circadian cycle health.

This post has a list with other posts in the mitochondria series: Two cardiologists, long interview about CoV spike issues. *Update, now part of the mitochondria & movement series. - Jan Jekielek interview is pertinent.

Also helpful on society breakdown, malaise, and what might help: finding a sense of purpose in something greater than yourself and your own worries. I would agree. I may not have a lot of readers (on open internet, the majority of my readers for a long, long time were on some deepnet livestream of a keystroke copier allegedly funded by the US Watch list people - sounds like it would be hard to read - every typo and edit) but writing about health info helps my own health and does help some other people and I feel good about that.

What’s for breakfast? Shiitake mushroom stir-fry (with onion, garlic, cauliflower and rice yesterday, maybe with tofu today also). I seem to be craving them.
Springtime vitamin D source maybe. ~ 3.4 IU in one 19 gram shiitake mushroom; search result snippet, ~ 3 IU per mushroom per (healthbymushrooms.com) Not a huge amount, but some.
Shiitake also can help with weight control and have other medicinal benefits. Beta-glucan content may help protect against fungal infection risks that are increased by chimeric spike issues. Avoiding glyphosate and a lower carb diet is also helpful for preventing fungal infections, which have been increasing along with other health calamities, in the recent past.
Substack update - there is a new competitor *besides Twitter, who is not really a competitor actions - it isn’t a blogging platform. A Thread is not comfortable to read unless written as bullet points, unique thoughts. And the paid for account posts are just like a long Facebook post - not comfortable to read. Blogging is word processing behinds the scene. The writer has abilities to format things for interest and clarity.
The new competitor was being recommended in a Thread on Twitter - beehiiv, beehiiv.com — “The newsletter platform built for growth” It is pricy though, Free has some services, $49/month more, and deluxe is $99 a month. They do not take any of the paying subscriber fees.
Part of the Thread or maybe elsewhere was talk of Substack making peanuts - $12 million - which may be low for a tech company - and is wrong based on this: “Substack revenue is $1.1M annually. After extensive research and analysis, Zippia's data science team found the following key financial metrics. Substack has 56 employees, and the revenue per employee ratio is $19,642. Substack peak revenue was $1.1M in 2021.” Substack Revenue: Annual, Quarterly, and Historic - Zippia
“Jan 5, 2022 · Substack Usage Statistics (Top Picks) There are over 500,000 paying subscribers on Substack. Substack has raised over $82.4 million to date. 15 investors have put capital into Substack. Substack launched in October 2017. The top 10 authors on Substack collectively make over $20 million per year.” Substack User and Revenue Statistics (2022) (backlinko.com)
Substack’s business model is based on a percentage of the subscription fees - ten percent. So ten bestsellers gross 2 million in revenue for the company - but Substack ha to pay their bills and staff. They need more paying subscribers for the business model or a change in fees versus free.
The reader as the funder is not a bad idea, except their is a finite amount of subscriptions that it is reasonable for an individual to pay. Depending on their budget. We wouldn’t typically subscribe to 100 magazines - that would be a lot of magazines on the coffee table.
I have to confess to not being able to get the funding set up. I ran into trouble and quit working on it - a long time ago when I first set up the Substack. I didn’t write here initially. I was still writing my new work on transcendingsquare.com (WordPress). I also have Wix.com blogs and a couple sites with blogs hosted by Godaddy. I started on a free google blogspot and moved off because I wanted to own my own work. A blog though, any of them, to reach a point, has word processing power that social media posts don’t. And you own it in a way that a social media post is ultimately the company’s property - maybe not their copyright, but theirs to delete if they want.
My tip to Substack would be to improve the blogging tools and analytics AND ability to export archives in a format that a Wordpress site could import. Improve the behind-the-scenes software, not just add new features that are supportive of the main goal - which is BLOGGING PLATFORM, and podcast, and chat, and notes - we’ll see how it goes, but the nice thing about diversity, is of course, the diversity. Having Twitter be Twitter and Substack be Substack is diversity. On the other hand, the community at Substack has been nice and I like the free support for writers goal. But then they need more writers with better earnings. okay then.
I have lost count of how many Substacks I am a paid subscriber to, it is less than a 100 though.
