Since the beginning of the industrial age,
the scientific enquiry has largely been limited to a materialistic understanding
of natural and technological processes. At one stage, science comprised the
spiritual sciences of Alchemy and Metaphysics. With the taking of the industrial
path, the spiritual enquiry was neglected by the mainstream scientific
Technology has become increasingly complex without questioning its basic foundations
and long term effects, and has moved further and further away from the simple basic
workings of nature, which are based on implosion. Environmental, pollution,
exploitation and dereliction have
intensified with the increase in sophistication of technology. Recently, there
has been a trend to care for the environment by developing ways that lessen the
impact and environmental pollution of our technology. However, in order to find
real solutions to the environmental dilemma, we have to go back to the beginning
of the industrial path, develop an expanded more open minded science and
medicine uniting Western and Eastern knowledge and develop a technology that is
simple and works with nature - not against it.
This article attempts to provide some
answers and introduces a path that the Centre for Implosion Research has
started to explore.
What is Implosion?
Today’s technology is solely based on explosion. This is
the process that has been adopted to use the energy stored in our planet’s
natural resources to heat our homes, drive our cars and to produce our
electricity. The explosion process, however useful it may seem, is extremely
wasteful and inefficient. Most of the chemical energy stored in fuel is lost in
the conversion process into mechanical or electrical energy. To travel a
distance of 1000 km (~600 miles) in an average car requires an energy
expenditure of 1000 kW. This equals the energy requirement of one human being to
live and do all his physical and intellectual activities for one year (Coats,
Most of the energy is lost during an explosive process
through frictional resistance, which produces useless waste heat. The waste heat
from all industrial processes, which are almost exclusively somewhere along the
line based on the explosive use of fossil or nuclear fuels, causes our planet to
warm up. In nature (unlike conventional technologies) minute temperature
differences will cause very large changes. If our own body temperatures go up by
half a degree above normal we feel unwell. Our planet reacts to equally small
changes in temperature.
Further to being heat generating, wasteful and
inefficient, the combustion (explosion) of fuels produces by-products which harm
us and pollute our planet. Furthermore, atmospheric oxygen, the element needed
by all of us to breathe and exist, is wastefully consumed during the explosion
process. An average car, driven at 50 kph (~30 mph) consumes about 750 times the
amount of oxygen needed by a human being (Coats, 1996). At the same time, our
oxygen producing global forests are being cut down at an alarming rate.
Implosion is a suctional process that causes matter to
move inwards, not outwards as in the case of explosion. This inward
(centripetal) motion, however, does not follow a straight (radial) path to the
centre, it follows a spiralling whirling path. This is called a vortex and is
the secret of nature.
Have you ever wondered why bath water,
when emptied, flows through the plug hole in this spiralling vortex fashion?
Water will always try to follow the path of least resistance. This is what the
vortex is enabling it to do. It is reducing resistance by curving more and more
inwards thereby avoiding the confrontational resistance of straight motion. This
is the fundamental reason for the plug hole vortex phenomenon. The Coriolus
Effect due to the Earth’s rotation determines the direction of spin of large
A characteristic feature of a vortex is
that the outside of the vortex moves slowly and the centre moves fast. As water
is imploded in a vortex, suspended particles, which are denser than water are
sucked into the centre of flow, frictional resistance is reduced and the speed
of the flow increased. This was verified through experiments conducted by
Professor Dr. Franz Pöpel at the Stuttgart Technical University in Germany in
1952 (Alexandersson, 1996; Coats 1996).
The vortex motion, which also causes a
drop in temperature and increase in density, is paramount for water to stay
healthy and disease free. Natural water courses are naturally spiralling and
meandering and the water in them forms whirls and eddies, which are vortices.
The vortex motion can also be observed in whirl winds. The suctional force
generated within tornadoes is typically strong enough to lift houses and uproot
In stark contrast to nature, the conventional technical motion along straight
paths causes resistance to build up exponentially with speed. A small increase
in speed causes a large increase in resistance. Pressure and temperature are
increased. This means that the higher the speed the greater the losses to
In nature there are virtually no straight forms, and whenever possible,
vortices, spirals and curves are produced to reduce resistance. Yet in
conventional technology, explosion/combustion and straight motion are employed,
both of which increase resistance and temperature and are fundamentally against
nature and every living thing. The realisation of this caused the Austrian
Viktor Schauberger, the father of implosion technology, to proclaim emphatically
in the early part of this century: "Our technologists are moving matter
incorrectly. Their technologies and interference with nature is detrimental
to us and our planet". His maxim in life was "Understand and Copy Nature"
There is another not so apparent reason, why in the natural world around us
there are so many spirals, as can be seen in shell-fish, snails, antelope horns,
on a small scale in our spiralling DNA molecule and on a large scale in
spiralling cosmic nebulae. We are now about to enter the realms of etheric
energies, which are widely known and understood in many cultures. To our Western
world, however, these concepts may still seem strange.
The Greek derived word ether is defined in the Webster Universal
Dictionary as a "hypothetical medium, supposed to fill space, by means of
vibrations in which light and other forms of radiation are transmitted".
Up until the latter part of the last century the ether theory was an established
scientific fact. The Michelson-Morley experiment, carried out in 1881, concluded
that there was no Earth motion relative to the ether (Encyclopedia Britannica,
Vol 8, p. 98). This experiment (which was a one off, 4h experiment) discredited
the ether theory and caused its rejection in favour of the theory that space is
a vacuum and air is merely a chemical composition of Oxygen and Nitrogen plus
other minor constituents.
Today, scientists are realising that there is some kind of fundamental
non-electromagnetic energy after all, which pervades space and interacts with
matter. Because of its non-conformity to the laws of thermodynamics it has been
referred to as free energy, vacuum energy, scalar wave or quantum energy. In
Eastern cultures this energy is known as life force, Prana or Chi, etc. In this
article we are using Aristotle´s term Ether or etheric energy to describe this
The established ether theory of most of the last century was that ether is a
static medium. However, ether is dynamic vibratory energy. It is very much in
motion. And this motion always follows a vortex path. All manner of different
vortex sizes and shapes exist, but basically, etheric energy moves in a vortex.
The American John Worrel Keely, the farther of sympathetic vibratory physics,
stated this in the late 19th century. He invented machinery, which was driven by
this subtle etheric energy (Pond, 1996). His theories and inventions were
opposed by organisations with vested interests, to which he eventually
succumbed. His understanding was beyond that of his contemporaries. He was far
ahead of his time.
Despite the problems he encountered, he and others like Nikola Tesla, Viktor
Schauberger and Wilhelm Reich have shown that etheric energy, although invisible
to most, is very real. It is the substance that is enabling the perpetual motion
of planets, stars and universes. It is the driving force. Planets are moved
within the flow of ether, similar to logs being moved by the flowing water of a
river. This explains why there is no relative motion between Earth and ether
All matter, on a sub atomic scale, is energy. The nucleus of an atom, its
material core, is infinitesimally small in comparison with the size of the atom.
If the entire space within an atom were to be filled with particles the size of
its nucleus, one million billion (1015) of such particles
would be required to do so (Asimov, 1977). Everything is space, and space is everything.
This space is ether: vibratory energy! Keely wrote in 1893:
"there is no dividing of matter and force into two distinct terms, as they
both are one. Force is liberated matter. Matter is force in bondage" (Pond,
Etheric energy moves in a vortex fashion, because the vortex provides least
resistance to the flowing motion. It follows that physical matter, which is
materialised etheric energy, seeks the same low-resistance motion. As mentioned
earlier, the natural media water and air have this intrinsic vortex motion. Our
blood and the sap of plants, move in this way too. After all, our veins,
arteries and minute blood vessels are not straight channels. They are winding
their way through our bodies just like a river is winding its way through the
countryside. A short newspaper item in the Daily Mail from 8 May 1998 stated:
"Medical scientists working with aeronautical engineers at Imperial College
London, found that blood swirls as it rushes through an artery. Furthermore,
nature has designed arteries with a helical twist to encourage the swirl..."
Water needs the natural winding spiralling vortex motion to stay healthy.
This is because this motion allows it to recharge and sustain its life force,
which is apparent as the etheric energy field surrounding it.
Thus, water is etheric energy in bondage, but it has to move in this
particular way, lest it loses its life force and becomes stagnant and
