Finally no resistance in the monolith

I put the ammonia soaked cotton in a pipe, and beat the heck out of it to fully compress it with a hammer and chisel.

Then pyrolitically graphitized it at 900 degrees celcius in my forge. As you can see the resistance reading is zero.

Next step is to activate it, so I dunked it in 6M KOH. and back in the forge for 60 minutes.
