Why Fusion Fizzles
The problem hydrogen fusion programs face lies in the nature of creation itself. Nature uses Dark Energy to get sub atomic particles from their dormant state as Dark Matter spun up to its Matter state. The Higgs showed us that creation is more energy efficient than we can account for under current models of physics. The cause of this efficiency is intelligence as applied to order the subatomic particles into the spin orientation they need to have as they come through the quantum leap into creation. Dark Energy doesn’t rely on chaos to provide the materials of creation.
The process of fusing Hydrogen to Helium has an ingredient missing, Neutrons. Helium has 2 neutrons in an atom, hydrogen has zero, heavy versions are still shy of sustained reaction requirements. When we apply lasers or other dumb energy to the area to spark the fusion process, we give the Dark Matter at that location the energy to spin, but we do not inject the instruction set to order them all into muons to be used to supply the required neutrons to finish the process of creating helium; we rely on Chaos and a high quantity of energy to produce enough muons to support the process, but it doesn’t. The reaction quickly uses up the available neutrons and fizzles out.
The solution is a relatively simple one, add a Neutron Gun to the apparatus and point a stream of free neutrons to the reaction. This will also allow a throttle for the reactor, and should reduce the energy required to get the reaction started.
