& to paraphrase Sir Stanley Hooker, '6 strokes provide one power-stroke, plus 5 - to wear the engine out'.
Perhaps Mr Chen could join forces with fellow member here, & also self-proclaimed 'prophet'
- of advanced spoonbending, ah, sorry, - I mean 'advanced engines' -'Feliks', & amaze us all, yet!
This practice of ad hominem is not constructive.
mr chen is simply exploring engineering paths, so a discussion of the pros and cons is best.
I dont think so Johnny C-L, & my paraphrasing of Hooker's view - is surely apropos on a 'technical' basis.
& I'll add a Christopher Hitchens dictum here:
'What is asserted sans evidence, may be dismissed, accordingly'.
If Mr Chen can prove his ideas do not belong in the 'crackpot' category - ( via 'the pudding') ok, fine,
but frankly, if you review his prior claims - as posted on this forum - the probability aint high, IMO..
