I don’t know about you, but it’s not too hard to fathom that people, interested in something in particular, lose interest in time unless they are fed with some additional info piece along the way. We do know of Rossi holding on to this strategy – willingly or unwillingly – where he has been rather consistent giving the public something new and exciting at exactly right time intervals. But then again even that cannot necessarily spare him from losing fans, because somebody’s attention span is rather small and they can’t stay interested for way too long. In the great scheme of things, one year and a half is not a long time period. But we live our lives in the fast lane, and so it makes sense that it takes authentic faith for the fans to continue believing.
Of course, he has been dropping big names along the way as much as it depends on him as well. At times these big names just surface on the horizons of the technology of Rossi Energy Catalyzers on their own – such as Brian Josephson, Randy Hekman, Mitt Romney, Bruce Tarr, etc., whereas in other instances it’s a premeditated plant to incorporate this or that entity and get them involved, because their name will inevitably bring about a greater following – Siemens and the National Instruments, for instance.
And even in these cases people are free to choose whether they will follow or not, and whether they will continue believing until the very end or not. Here is one interesting quote on the issue – taken from a blog that sheds light on the developments of Rossi Energy Catalyzers and shares various opinions on the matter: “… in the final analysis, what people say or think will have little impact on the work that Rossi and others are doing if he indeed has what he says he has.” Oh so true, whether people follow or not is irrelevant at this point in time. It will matter commercially later, when the domestic units of 10 kW hit the market. But currently what matters is that the technology gets verified – also commercially (and not scientifically as the scientific world pushes for). Once the device is out, and it is sold in bulk, that becomes the answer that people want to know the answer to now.
So it is bound to happen that along the way – from October 28th when the first 1 MW plant was demonstrated and until autumn of this year (when domestic units will begin to be manufactured in Florida) and beyond – Rossi has lost and will have lost some followers. But then again he has gained some new friends of his technology and will have gained even more if/when it does come to fruition.
