My audio electronics belief is based on scientific facts (measurements, DBT by the experts). Yours is based on speculations and imagination. I know this because I used to be like that myself.

I was just reading the thread without the intention to answer, but...

Calling nuclear fusion or fission processes "over unity" is more than being liberal with the name - it is plainly wrong.

Neither fission nor fusion violates conservation of energy. It might look like it does, but only if you happen to forget to include nucleon binding energies into the bill. If you do, it's quite boring: no net gain of energy, conservation laws fulfilled, nothing to whine about...

I'm not disagreeing, or agreeing - just looking at some of the data.
I'm with Bonsai on this....

Someone once told me that a coal-fired power station spreads more radioactivity around its neighbourhood (in the exhaust plume) than a nuclear station. This is because, like almost everything, coal is slightly radioactive but not subject to nuclear controls.

Curiously, when the media want to illustrate the 'pollution' from a power station they always show pictures of water vapour from the cooling towers! Nasty stuff, water. Drink too much of it and you die.

I believe you have to drink 6 litres to damage the brain.

But you shouldn't allow sarcasm drive you toward neologism

We call it fusion.
Eg, an atomic weapon is definitely an over unity device.

"Over unity" needs definition if you want to make statements about processes using it. If it implies more output energy than input energy in a process then it is simply wrong as there isn't such a process, just a misunderstanding of the inputs and outputs.
