Are Its Secrets the Keys to Solving Today's Most

Our thinking apparatus runs on water. Our physical bodies are
two-thirds water, so obviously its qualities can heal or harm us. We now learn
that water seems to remember and later convey "information". No wonder the most
dynamic frontier in science today is water research. Or is it a re-search, I
wondered, after encountering researchers who:
Some study the big picture, such as the claim that rivers
self-organize and energetically recharge themselves through spinning
motions. And some point out the well-known anomalies that water is densest at 4
degrees Celsius (=39F), and strangely expands when cooled further, so that
its solid state floats on top of its liquid state. Water as the "universal solvent"
melds with nearly any element. Hydrogen, the main ingredient in water, is spread
throughout galaxies, and ice is found in dust clouds in outer space.
show how neuroscience tends to confirm medieval concepts situating
memory, imagination and reason in water-filled cavities of the brain.
experiment with transferring, from water to us, the life-force energy
chi, also called prana down through the ages; or
study specially-shaped water pipes used by ancient Minoan culture in Crete; or
show how the emanations from healers' hands change water.
measure physical qualities of "holy water," or effects of conscious intent upon
water's crystalline structure; or
build prototype inventions aimed at using water as a source of energy.
The picture of water that emerges is what Marilyn Ferguson in her
book Aquarian Conspiracy calls" the strangest stuff around." Learning about the
mysteries of water evokes a primal fore-knowing, like a racial memory, perhaps
pro-science, something we have known for a very long time.
Before our materialistic age lost the abilities to sense subtle
energetics, water was central to sacred rituals and symbols: Baptism, The holy
river, Spiritual visions of the Ocean of Love, Myths of the flood or of
creation, Drinking of sacred waters when visiting an oracle or a shrine. The
Sumerian goddess Inanna had a vase in place of a heart, from which flowed
miraculous water. The Bronze Age civilization of King Minos at his city of
Knossos on the island of Crete apparently lived by the principle that water
should be returned to the earth in the same conditions it was when it was
borrowed, treating all water as holy. Our era in contrast treats rivers and
oceans as dumping grounds, and we face shortages of drinkable water. Dr. Karl
Maret predicts that water will become the currency in the new century. Meanwhile
researchers of water mysteries struggle for funding.
Ferguson notes: "The quest to understand water hasn't summoned up the
capital and glamour of space research, although it may have more direct bearing
on our lives. While humans burn rain forests and alter other factors that kept
our habitat moist, we should remember the nagging suspicion that Mars was once a
Let Water Move, Keep it Cool
We've had ample warnings. Austrian forest warden Viktor Schauberger
(1885-1958) warned about wastelands that did and would appear on our planet when
vast forests disappear. He observed the interaction between water and forest,
such as the vitality of cold, pure water in tree-sheltered streams. He
admonished: "Comprehend nature, then copy nature." He taught that water is a
living rhythmic substance. In maturity, it gives of itself to everything needing
life. However, water can become diseased through incorrect handling. Dying water
harms animals, plants, and fish.
Whether stilled by a dam or a bottle, stagnant and warm waters begin
to deteriorate. Conversely, at a cool 4 degrees Celsius (39F), moving water is
densest, strongest and at its best carrying capacity. Wild rivers have inherent
self-control mechanisms, if left alone to establish their own homeostasis, that
is if kept cool with natural overhanging vegetation and allowed to meander
around bends and therefore be lively with purposeful swirling motion.
Shortsighted human engineering, clear-cut forests, mega-project dams, and rivers
confined into canals all tamper with the circulatory system of our planet.
Having interfered with the hydrological cycle, we reap floods, droughts, and
other extremes of weather.
Olaf Alexandersson in his book Living Water introduces Schauberger's
insight into river management, water-fueled devices and energy. Its successor is
the book by Callum Coats, Living Energies, that could be the textbook for a new
eco-technology, to construct or encourage processes which don't fight nature but
instead work in harmony. Coats researched for two decades into Schauberger's
discoveries from forestry to flood control to soil fertility and water
purification. Hydrologists could learn by reading this book how crucial the
small variations are in a river's temperature, and how water's spinning motion
recharges it with subtle energies.
Water Power without Dams
The naturalist's warning echoes across the decades, "Prevailing
technology uses the wrong form of motions." Twentieth-century machines leave
behind waste products because their processes use the destructive half of
nature's creation/destruction cycle, the centrifugal outward moving motions of
heating, burning, pushing, radiating or explosion. They channel air, water and
fuels into the type of motion which nature uses to decompose matter. Schauberger
observed that the centripetal inward-spiraling force is the creative, cooling,
sucking motion without friction, which results in increased order instead of
destruction. He applied his understanding of cycloid spiral motion to a wide
range of inventions; methods that are in harmony with nature's creative motion.
This "water magician" found solutions for agriculture, for energy
generation, as well as transporting water in pipes that encourage the
inward-spiraling motion of water. Today's researchers follow and expand on
Schauberger's earlier knowledge.
For instance, the Swedish Malmo group use the phrase "self-organizing
flow" to describe what they are creating, since Schauberger's technology made
use of the natural orderliness spontaneously created by a system under the
correct conditions. Meanwhile, new energy-generating processes, such as Randall
Mills' Black Light Power, convert ordinary water into hydrogen and oxygen. Paul
Pantone of Utah runs engines on water mixed with waste substances, and the air
that comes out the exhaust pipe won't dirty-a white handkerchief held at the end
of the pipe.
About a century ago, John Worrell Keely figured out how to run a
motor on the power of cavitation or implosion, while alternately compressing and
expanding water. He harnessed that we dismiss as nuisance- the water hammer- in
water pipes. Dale Pond, researcher of Keely's physics, says that Keely's
Hydro-Vacuo motor created a water hammer shock wave which when synchronized with
the wave's echo, "results in Amplitude Additive Synthesis, a process which
tremendously increased energy accumulations in quick order." Pond warns that
this resonance amplification is similar to the process, which breaks wine
Liquid Memory, Do We Really Know Water?
At Water-science conferences which this journalist attended in recent years such as
the one at Seniamhoo Resort, WA, Nov. '98 (funded by Living Water
International); a privately funded '97 meeting in Los Angeles organized by Linda
McClain; and the Institute of Advanced Water Sciences (AWS) symposium the
previous year in Dallas, TX the one fact that emerged was that water is not a
single homogeneous product of nature.
Water in living cells has unique structure, and clusters of its
molecules have organized relationships. Another factor is what Schauberger
called the "immature taker" vs "life-giving mature" water. Since water without
minerals Is a relentless solvent, if we could distill 100% of impurities out of
a batch of water, it would be dangerous to drink, leaching minerals from our
Then there's the movement-vitality factor. Stagnant bottled water,
even though chemically clear, is dead compared to water in the rushing brooks.
But it has to be proper movement. As water is pushed through cities in the
unnatural confines of metal pipes, its energetic oscillations interfere, and the
natural order in water's structure is canceled.' How do we know this? For one,
German engineer Theodor Schwenk and his Institute for Flow Science developed a
technique for photographing the internal structure of water. In drops of water
taken near pristine springs, a symmetric rosetta pattern was revealed. On the
other hand, the internal structure of damaged municipal water is-chaotic.
Chemical contaminants and electromagnetic pollution compound the damage and
cause chaotic clustering of water molecules. These meetings wrestled with
questions such as whether 'living water' is an organized state of matter and
energy, and capable of storing and transmitting information. If so, the
implications go beyond homeopathy and 'energy medicine" and into the interaction
between water and consciousness.
Dr. David Schweitzer, grandson of Albert Schweitzer, is the first
scientist to photograph the effects of thoughts, captured in water. This shows
that water can act as a liquid memory system capable of storing information.
David Schweitzer first stepped into this trail by becoming an authority on blood
analysis. He learned that blood cells express themselves in sacred geometry and
their harmonious shapes and colors. Since blood cells hang out in water, he
looked farther into that substance for answers about our thinking processes.
After ten years of observing blood, in 1996 he made the discovery which opened
the door to photographing the stored frequencies in homeopathics and natural
remedies and to researching the impact of positive or negative thoughts on
"Having studied the relationship between the brain, cells and
emotions," he told Joseph Duggan in Vancouver, "I came to realize that
certain trace elements were needed to send information from one area of the brain to
another." Minerals alone could not convey information. To find out if the
carrier was water itself, Dr. Schweitzer experimented. French scientist Jacques
Benveniste had already shed light on the memory of water in homeopathy. He and a
dozen other scientists demonstrated that water can retain a memory of molecules
it once contained. Nature magazine in 1988 published their experiments showing
that if water containing antibodies was diluted repeatedly until it no longer
contained a single molecule of antibody, immune cells still respond to the
water. The publication drew outrage from orthodox professors, and the magazine
later sent a team to Benveniste's laboratory including the magician James Randi
and Walter Stewart, a self-appointed investigator of scientific fraud. The team
judged the French scientists' results to be a "delusion." However, a recent book
by Michel Schiff says the slander of Benveniste was the delusion.
Dr. Schweitzer says, aspects of the homeopathic research couldn't be
measured by the investigators' instruments. The witch hunt in France didn't stop
him from radical thinking. He remembered Albert Einstein's idea that particulate
"light bodies" act in ways we don't yet understand. Waking up one morning with
insight on how to make these bodies visible, Schweitzer began working on a
fluorescent microscope at a certain light intensity. He wanted to see somatids
change in response to thought and other influences. Just before the water on the
microscope slides evaporated, he saw certain formations develop "dependent on
the thoughts or energy atmosphere it had been impregnated with. I observed that
this cluster could be modified at will." Further work showed that microscopic
light bodies in the water intensify in the presence of positive thoughts. They
shine brightly if thoughts are backed up by emotion, and it makes a big
difference whether the emotions are negative or positive.
Intrigued by the tiny light-bodies, he tested holy waters of
religious faiths, from Italy, Russia, Yugoslavia and North America and saw
somatids floating even after years of being bottled on shelves. "This means
there is an ideal balance when somatids never touch, each other, which gives
them the greatest capacity to store information." But when he studied
homeopathic remedies, careful storage of energy medicine is crucial. French
immunologist Jacques Benveniste had learned that electronic circuits can impress
lasting information upon water, and low-frequency electromagnetic radiation and
heat destroy homeopathic strength. Further, Dr. Schweitzer has a warning about
purified water we buy in clear plastic bottles that have been exposed to
fluorescent lighting. When we drink only this water, our lips dry out and become
chapped and cracked. "Normally, drinking water does not dry out the mouth, but
fluorescent lighting changes the structure of water such that it dries out the
Randy Ziesenus, of Edmund, Oklahoma, says anyone can personally
improve the water they use. "It's amazing what happens when you take a glass of
water and hold it between the palms of your hands and ask your higher Self to
work with that water and whatever you need for your highest good. And then drink
it; incredible what that little (ritual) does." Ziesenus is president of
Bio-Com, a company that specializes in the development of biotechnology using
radio-frequencies (RF) to alter water's bonding structure. He says "if you
drink water that's harmonious to the human body, water will pass through the
body within ten to 15 minutes. Then you've got to go to the restroom. The
(harmonious) water will carry out toxins".
One of his inventions condenses water from air. "That's one of the
biggest things I've been working on by using frequencies to draw moisture out of
air." He and researchers from Los Alamos National Laboratory are working on "a
program where you can take a photocell device, put it out in the desert, and it
will make a gallon of water overnight." The unit is powered by photovoltaics
(electricity from sunlight). Ziesenus agrees with Dr. Scheitzer's claim that our
AC electricity leaves a harmful imprint on water.
At the Living Water conference, professor emeritus William Tiller quietly
obliterated the conventional view that humans cannot meaningfully interact with
their experiments, "Conventional science would even more emphatically state that
specific human intentions could not be focused into a simple electronic device,
which is then used to meaningfully influence an experiment in accord with the
specific intention. We have made a valid test and found conventional science
conclusion to be in serious error."
In his work Dr. Tiller describes the people who are capable of sustaining
high-coherence in intentions as "imprinters." They, for example, sit around the
table while putting out the intention "to activate the indwelling consciousness
of the system" so that the pH of the experimental, water increased or decreased
significantly compared to the control. It did. How does he explain this?
The theory used by Tiller and co-researcher Walter Dibble, Jr., is
multidimentional. These scientists see water as a special material, "well suited
for information/energy transfer from this frequency domain into our conventional
domain of cognition, the physical." Regarding the factor of mental capability of
whether imprinters know enough science to visualize changes in pH, Dr. Tiller
said, "the unseen intelligence of the universe is an even more important
factor." Later he added, "in my view it is the spark of Spirit in the cells that
give rise to the life force."
Another scientist at that meeting, Dr. Glen Rein, points out, that
physicists know about the existence of energy fields with properties, which are
not explained by classical equations. He refers to the non-classical fields as
quantum fields. Rein's work again shows that this non-electromagnetic
energy—information from the primordial vacuum of space—can be stored in water
and can later communicate with living cells.
Perhaps Viktor Schauberger's most startling observation was that
subtle qualities of water can affect humans mentally and spiritually, either
revitalization or deterioration of society. Dr. Thomas Narvaez has proven to his
own satisfaction that a vitality factor exists and can be increased or decreased
in water by human activity. "We now see that our thoughts not only affect our
own bodies, but also the bodies of those around us. Members of this group
(speaking to the Institute of Advanced Water Sciences, in 1996) who bottled
water or who worked with broadcasted energies like crystals or magnets therefore
have a responsibility to keep our view of the world upbeat and positive."
