So I've been following this with a little interest, as it stands on its own, not on how it relates to the E-Cat, and as far as I can see it, there is really only one way, as far as the math goes, that this quasiparticle behavior could somehow 'escort' a proton, as KitemanSA describes it. If the bulk behavior represented by one of these polaritons (whatever type it might be) could somehow influence Columb's constant at a local level, then this could happen. The only way they could do this would be by SOMEHOW decreasing the magnetic constant μ₀ (i.e. vacuum permeability) in the region of charge space the proton would be 'escorted' through. Doing this would increase the electric constant ε₀ (i.e. vacumm permittivity) in that region (by way of ε₀ = 1/μ₀c²), which would decrease Columb's constant (k = 1/4πε₀). Nobody has suggested this that I've seen, but if it were possible, it should be 'relatively' easy to test as it would also directly influence Ampère's force law and could be directly measured. I don't see by what mechanism it could do this, however.
This is how the proton actually get close to the nucleus as follows:
All neutron based theories and proton/electron combo theories are incorrect.
The Shukla-Eliasson effect states that a negatively charged potential makes it possible to combine positively charged particles (ions) in atom-like structures within the plasma.
In a quantum plasmas that form at the nano-scales, where quantum-mechanical effects gain significance, the plasma density is very high and the temperature is low.
This condition exists when dipole excitation form on the surface of a metal surrounded by a dielectric material. When the conditions are right, a Nanoplasmonic structure comprised of an intense collective ball of rapidly rotating electrons and light combine(polaritons
) to form as a hot spot. This electromagnetic vortex packs huge negative charge under extreme concentrations to form a nano-scale plasmoid.
Under this extreme nano-condition, then this newly discovered potential occurs, which is caused by collective interaction processes of degenerate electrons with the quantum ionic positive surface plasma of the dipole sea.
The protons of ionized hydrogen and those of nuclei of nickel grow close and form pairs.
The new negative potential of the hot spot causes an attractive force between the dipole ions, which then form tightly packed lattices. The positive ions of hydrogen and nickel are compressed and the distances between them shortened to such a degree that they touch.
Even though these ions form pairs, they do not combine until the anapole magnetic field from the hot spot disrupts the Higgs fields in these respective nuclei to effect the fusion of the two ions.
A common misconception that is rampant states that a neutron is formed when an electron grows close to its hydrogen nucleus.
In this theory, Molecular Hydrogen (H2) needs to breakup into its atomic form where H has to be “excited” to its Rydberg state. Its electron’s trajectory becomes highly elliptic to a point that the electron approaches so closely that the proton and electron combine to form a neutron through reverse beta decay.
All these type theories are incompatible with nanopasmonic theory.
What really go on is that when the Hot Spot is at the proper strength level, its intense native charge draws the associated positive ions of the dipole sea close together and its anapole magnetic emanations produced by its vortex rotational motion actually combine the hydrogen and nickel nuclei together.
This is an interesting reference that describes hot spot formation:
