Hal Puthoff's error on Cold Fusion charge cluster Exotic Vacuum Objects
"Plasma induced/injected transmutation processes run include a gamut from recent achievements dating back to the Oshawa-Kushi cold plasma transmutations reported in 1964. The patented High-Density Charge Cluster (HDCC) process was first discovered by Kenneth Shoulders and added on to by Harold E. Puthoff. Later, the late Stan Gleeson discovered HDCC in properly processed solutions. Still later, Alexander Ilyanok of Belarus discovered HDCC, followed by Vasiliy Baraboskin in Russia.
The production of condensed charge clusters and various plasma glow discharge phenomena in a variety of gaseous atmospheres is again implicated as the underlying cause with what should be by now an obvious connection with the coherence of zero-point energy from the quantum or stochastic vacuum. Desk-top high energy particle accelerators have also been envisioned, based on the “piggy back” principle, in which the clusters permit acceleration of “piggy-backed” heaver +ions to extremely high energies capable of causing fusion and transmutations in target materials including those in solution and the materials of which the electrodes are composed. Brown’s gas implosion and cavitation bubble collapse reactions are also believed to be prevalent in these types of cells due to the prevalence of electrolysis.
A high-density charge cluster technology was discovered and used by Stan Gleeson to stabilize radioactive liquid wastes and has been developed further in the last 4 years by a group led by S-X Jin and Hal Fox. Best results for radioactive liquids have been demonstrated in the processing of thorium for a 30-minute period and achieving a reduction of radioactivity of about 90% from a liquid sample."
My citing this does not mean I endorse it!
Hal and I seem to agree on the basic geometric picture of the Ken Shoulder's charge cluster EVO, i.e. electrons of effective size h/mc ~ 10^-11 cm close-packed in a spherical thin shell of radius ro as a Schwarzschild radial coordinate (strong short range effective gravity from zero point energy density.
N(h/mc)^2 = 4piro^2
Hal has a wrong picture of ZPE for virtual photons at least based on SED and also on an error in Peter Milonni's book "The Quantum Vacuum" that treats virtual photons as if they were real on mass shell E = pc with w = +1/3 rather than w = -1 and E =/= pc as is the case.
Therefore, Hal's picture is the contradictory picture that the zero point pressure is positive OUTSIDE the N electron shell containing it. That's impossible because that would mean such a large cosmological constant dark energy density ~ 10^+22 cm^-2 that would not allow our universe to even exist!
My short-scale picture based on the correct w = -1 means a uniform negative ZPF pressure "glue" on the inside of the shell of repulsive charge with ~ ZERO pressure outside consistent with Type Ia supernovae data that Einstein's cosmological constant vacuum energy on large-scale is /\ ~ 10^-56 cm^-2.

The naked singularity has
M^2 < a^2 + Q^2
Therefore, on this model, where M = Q, the electron would be a naked singularity that might explain the random indeterminate micro-quantum properties, or it might be an argument for the Chapline-Laughlin "dark energy star" model?
On the other hand, my actual model with /\zpf is essentially Newtonian and does not require the Kerr-Newmann metric fit at all.

Alexander Burinski in Moscow has made detailed models of the electron as a Kerr-Newman metric http://arxiv.org/pdf/hep-th/0412065
The parameters in that metric from the electron's stabilizing dark energy core would then be
G*m^2 = e^2
m and e are the measured rest mass and charge of the electron
J = (1/2)(h/2pi)
a = (1/2)h/mc
M = G*m/c^2 = e^2/mc^2 = classical radius of the electron ~ 1 fermi
G*^1/2m = e
G*^1/2e = G*m
Q = G*^1/2e/c^2 = G*m/c^2
This Kerr-Newman model must be compared to a "charged" dark star model (e.g. Chapline & Laughlin)

Note that an EVO of ~ 10^12 electrons close-packed in a spherical shell has a radius

The counter-intuitive effective attractive gravity G* from this homogeneously distributed repulsive vacuum zero point energy 3D harmonic oscillator potential of negative pressure is
G*(Nm)^2 = (Ne)^2
G*m^2 = e^2
G* = (e/m)^2
independent of N
The effective gravity constant G* induced by the dark zero point energy core of the electron is simply the square of the charge to mass ratio of the electron.

For a shell of N electrons
N(h/mc)^2 = 4piro^2
N^1/2(h/mc) = (4pi)^1/2ro
ro^3 = (Ne)^2/(2mc^2/\zpf)
N^3/2(h/mc)^3/(4pi)^3/2 = N^2e^2/2mc^2/\zpf
(h/mc)^3/(4pi)^3/2 = N^1/2e^2/2mc^2/\zpf
/\zpf = (4pi)^3/2N^1/2(e^2/2mc^2)/(h/mc)^3
e^2/hc ~ (1/137) = (classical electron radius)/(Compton radius)
/\zpf ~ (4pi)^3/2N^1/2(e^2/hc)(mc/h)^2
For a SINGLE ELECTRON N = 1 (Bohm hidden variable)
This solves a 100 year old problem from Lorentz.
The electron is a shell of charge with a dark energy core.
The zero point stress energy density tensor of the dark energy core is
tuv(ZPF core) = (c^4/8piG)/\zpfguv

Note that my theory of Ken Shoulders charge clusters also has a dark energy core that stabilizes the shell of N electrons. The dark energy core potential ~ + c^2|/\zpf|r^2 holds the repulsive Coulomb barrier + (Ne)^2/mr in check!
