developed a new commercially competitive, non-polluting, plasma-based primary source of massive power from the conversion of hydrogen atoms of water molecules to dark matter, the previously unidentified matter that makes up most of the mass of the universe. The SunCell® that was invented to harness the new power source catalytically converts hydrogen directly into dark matter form called Hydrino® releasing brilliant high-energy light which is down-converted in energy to facilitate the production of electricity using commercially-available concentrator photovoltaic cells.
Brilliant Light Power, Inc. (BLP), formerly BlackLight Power, Inc. of Cranbury, New Jersey is a company founded by Randell L. Mills, who claims to have discovered a new energy source. The purported energy source is based on Mills' assertion that the electron in a hydrogen atom can drop below the lowest energy state known as the ground state.
Have Brilliant Light Power demonstrated a new energy source?
The obvious problem with Mills theory is Hydrinos don't exist. It's 99.99999% chances to be a scam. [...] What we are looking at with BLP is nothing more than a elaborate scam involving a fancy light bulb.
What makes hydrinos interesting as a piece of crankery is that there's a lot more depth to it than to most crap. Dr. Mills hasn't just handwaved that these hydrino things exist - he's got a very elaborate detailed theory - with a lot of non-trivial math - to back it up. Alas, the math is garbage, but it's garbage-ness isn't obvious. To see the problems, we'll need to get deeper into math than we usually do.
Randell Mill's idea operates on a claim that a Hydrino exists, where the electron is in a lower ground state than the ground state. That's not related to Cold Fusion.
No Hydrino has ever been observed by anyone else. He's never shown it to anyone else. He's claimed that he's done it and written research papers on it but nobody's ever seen it. If he could show a new lower energy state of hydrogen to somebody, he might win the Nobel prize and he'd certainly be the talk of the town. His fundraising would be thousands of times easier and he'd be instantly recognized if he showed it to some credible scientists. It's worth asking why he won't do that.
The ground state of an electron is the lowest state it can be in. A state lower than the ground state, if it was possible, would likely have been observed by somebody else by now. The odds are extremely high that what Randell Mills proposes is impossible because despite more studies of hydrogen's quantum state than I can count, the hydrino lower than ground state has never been observed.
I think, some of the links above explain it better. But that's my explanation.
