New Defkalion Survey – Closed

Recently Defkalion stated that they completed independent testing of their Hyperion device. If you don’t know the company and are not familiar with their announced product, then please do not take part in this survey.

Otherwise please sacrifice 2 minutes and take the survey. Age is no longer a mandatory field to not force those who don’t like to divulge this information into making up a number. On the other hand, please provide this number if you are interested in finding out if age factors into how people gauge this issue.


First LENR/e-cat Survey Released

This survey was open between Monday, Feb 27th and Friday, Mar 2nd and only advertised on the forum. From there 107 visitors responded.   Many thanks to everyone who did.  This is a pretty good sample size.  So without further ado here are the raw count results:

Even of those who believe in the e-cat only one individual thinks Rossi can deliver on time.  And although this individual is based in Europe given his posting location he does not believe in Rossi out of misplaced patriotism (i.e. the one 100% vote for the first statement did not originate in Italy).

Statement two is essentially a negation of the first one, and the good symmetry of the results indicates that people showed consistency in their judgment when filling out the survey.

The numbers for statement three are essentially a reflection on how the survey takers gauge Rossi’s truthfulness. While the scale is tipped in favor of skepticism this is still essentially a pretty even picture.

Interestingly this skepticism doesn’t carry over to how the majority assesses the likelihood of the e-cat showing a LENR effect.  In this sense the data represents those voices in the forum that support LENR but are highly critical of Rossi.

The numbers for the last question are to some extend at odds with the previous one as a handful of people apparently believe in an LENR effect in the e-cat, yet still consider there to be no excess energy. This overlap is pretty small though.

The demographics of the sample group is pretty interesting, too. When it comes to e-cat interest it’s a men’s world:

Makes me wonder if the rambunctious tone in the forum drives women away or simply is a consequence of the lopsided gender mix.

The interest is spread around the globe but clearly is a 1st world obsession:


This is a pretty old group even when throwing out the data points of the two self reported super-geezers who claimed to be 99 and 100 (sorry guys but I am not buying it :-))

There is more one can do with the data. In the next blog post I will examine if there are any differences in voting based on gender and territory.

Comment Thread – No Idea Why There are no Comments Showing

WordPress can be rather baffling.  I can enable comments on new post going forward but not on an existing one.  So leave comments here if you want to discuss the survey.

Update: Finally found the switch on to how to enable comments on an already existing post, but I think I will stick with this format for now.  It is more natural to leave comments at the end of an article than at the top. This counter-intuitive format is hard-wired in the WordPress theme that I picked, and as there are not many good ones that you can use for free, that’ll be the work-around for now.
