Re:

... runaway event or a chemical reaction. the nerves produce small currents but even though small those currents generate some heat and a short-circuit of the nervous system is thought of as another possible cause for the source of heat .

Reasons why spontaneous human combustion is impossible?

... than cause fire anyway. Or am I missing something here, can you really ignite things with a hot water radiator? I am not aware of any neural short-circuit mechanism that could cause fire, because a) the energies in the nervous system are so small that you probably could not ignite even gasoline ...

Reasons why spontaneous human combustion is impossible?

A common explanation for SHC is a metabolic runaway or a ''short-circuit'' in the nervous system, liberating heat which causes a person to catch fire. What do you say to that? PS. The 60% water argument is invalid. Radiators can cause things placed onto ...

Re:

... time here - should in theory, have very similar energy usages. If one was to blow a lightbulb or even interfere with the any part of the lightbulb circuit, it would show up as a discrepancy in the energy usage. It's measurable, statistical and theoretically repeatable. You say that discharges interfering ...
