Thanks for your analysis and let me clear up one detail.
I did not make it clear enough that I am not suggesting the Holmlid version,
nor the Mills version, nor the Miley version of dense hydrogen - but a
composite, where the charged UDH- is a negative particle (aka hydrino hydride)
which actually fully replaces one of the two inner orbital electrons of carbon.
A neutral UDH would not work, as you suggest.
This would mean that the major flaw of the premise becomes the fact that there
is a valid reason why the inner orbital cannot be replaced with a much heavier
particle with the same charge.
If there is such a reason, then the proposition fails unless there are other

There seems to be a number of flaws in this hypothesis. First of all, the only
way a shrunken neutral hydrogen can "hang around" in an atom of 12C is if it
has become in range of the strong force of the nucleus. In that case, it would
become a part of the nucleus and would be ripped to pieces in the process. It
is much more likely that it would be quickly scattered out of the 12C atom. If
a hydrino hydride had entered the atom and became a part of the lowest orbital
in 12C, it would screen one of the positive charges and would appear as 13B,
which would really be unusual because the half-life of real 13B is only 17ms.
The only way a hydrino hydride entering a nucleus could appear as 13C is if it
entered an atom of 12N. However, 12N has a half-life of only 11 ms, so you
wouldn't find any 12N hanging around for a hydrino hydride to enter….As I
understand it, Holmlid's work proposes no UDH in an atomic form - only in a
cluster form. So, he is completely out of this proposition to begin.
