Fairly recently Professor Gerald H. Pollack found a new phase of water. Its amazing that such a discovery could be found when every expert and school kid already thought that we understood almost everything about water. But it doesn’t please everyone.
Here follows a quote on the internet:
“To me this just reads like pseudo scientific drivel – I am not challenging its veracity, just the apparent lack of insight this guy seems to have (at least to me)“.
Just goes to show how people feel when their fur is rubbed up the wrong way, they already knew it, they don’t believe it, they don’t like it, there not having it! What people don’t like is their assumptions challenged and they close their minds. Often by finding something they can identify as wrong and use it as a single aspect to critice the overall theory; like for example myself as an English person putting down the entire book as rubbish because on the front cover the spelling of vapour is incorrect – in English.
And Gerald mentions this type of attitude in his book because recently several claims for new qualities of water have been proven to be wrong. Water research has a bad reputation: what could possible be new?
Fresh flowing water is not only refreshing, maybe giving off negative ions, it is also stimulating to be near to it and to just look at it. Water flowing over a boulder trapping leaves: Video. So we should endeavour not to have our water tampered with, like fluoridation which is a bleaching agent. Some suggestions are to ad Statins to drinking water! We should respect the value of water, water is essential to all life and we should support water science as it may improve all our lives.
WATERY SYSTEMS that may enhance it.
There are lots of so called pseudo-scientific methods connected with water, the only way to test if they are beneficial is to personally try a few. However after reading through this section it is recommended to try out the cheapest home – made options FIRST; these are links near the very end of this article .
Water is essential for life so drinking clean healthy water is also essential and stating it twice shows its importance!
Water Egg: egg shaped water holders ‘may’ invigorate water in the nourishing way that nature utilizes when it gestates growing things; from human babies to seeds held within pine cones – egg shapes in nature are repeated in many variations such as tree buds, pine-tree cones; has anyone investigated the egg shape in nature? maybe only this guy: Life Vortex. I have tried one of these water-egg jugs and find that it appears to at the very least – keep it cool – something intangible added to the water? doubtful, but the taste is fine; but then our water in Yorkshire is not contaminated with fluoridation. However it does have other aditives and the Water Egg does not filter the water.
A man who observed nature, pondered how Salmon could get up waterfalls. How to funnel timber efficiently through logging water-slides, and more controversially developing water engines. He suggested storing water in egg – like containers as the Romans did with water and wine in amphorae. He also delved into the properties of water especially spinning and vortexing of water and believed such energies collected in water from such movement was beneficial for health. Allegedly his water-engine concepts were used by the Soviet Union in their early space projects: an intriguing man. Much of his water philosophy has been adopted by other investigators and suppliers mentioned here.
Victor Schauberger’s ideas concerning water energising is covered in this book as well as products including vortex pipes, crystals and other methods allegedly with abilities to upgrade drinking water with more vitality. Victor believed that long straight pipework reduced the vitality of our drinking water. Dancing with Water: The New Science of Water
At the seaside and being near flowing water can indeed make us feel better, when we breath in the air nearby rushing fresh water, waterfalls, as water currents tumble, vortex, twist and turn. Where separate water channels merge together. The air near such watery turbulence is known to produce negative ions. These molecules in the air are anti-oxidants and thought to cancel out certain Free Radicals that can have detrimental effects on health and longevity.
The beneficial use of water by our ancestors all over the planet looks to be a concept they knew about. For example at Machu Picchu in Peru and at other ‘Inka’ locations have water channels and water direction changing methods of stone channelling, dropping down levels and pouring out of stone spouts generating small drinking fountains and waterfalls. Water delivery intertwined at the Machu Picchu site; water engineering, obviously important for drinking and irrigation yet never explained by guides. The Quechua Indians most likely know all about the good effects of the waters in this and other ‘Inka’ locations. Inka is in inverted commas as it is known that it was their own ancient ancestors who built these places, not the Maya or the Inkas.
Remarkably under the Pyramids on the Giza plateau there is an extinct complex of interwoven multi-layered large water channels huen out of the underground rock; a massive undertaking. It must have had a function worthy of such effort, maybe in concert with the pyramids above? This is what Abd’el Hakim Awyan maintains in The Pyramid Code video.
Ancient Romans venerated water especially rivers (Deva Goddess). The concept of Holy Water, blessed by a priest pre-dates the rituals of Roman Catholicism. Wells were venerated by many pre-historic civilisations. Well adornment and dressing in Derbyshire England is still practised as it once was on a larger scale in pagan times past and not just in Britain.
Water, irrigation and creation of water eco-systems and micro-climates were essential in Arabic culture; which spread to southern Spain. The best remaining example being the Generalife at the Alhambra in Granada.
Coins in a well or fountain is a persistent practice for wish fulfilment. Some believe there is energy in fresh uprising spring water. Could there be energies within underground waterways and springs that percolate to the surface at many ancient shrines and places of veneration and worship? In the Muslim world and others it is a pre-requisite to remove shoes when entering a place of worship, respect or superstition or maybe a sign of linking into the Earth current coming from below? these days an automatic ritual that maybe once had a more essential meaning? See Earthing. Dowsers may be able to not only find underground water, but sense its value!
In the book Dune by Frank Herbet, water plays a central role. He may have based his Sietches: water storage caverns; on those found at Masada in the Judaean Desert, overlooking the Dead Sea in Israel. Its a mountain stronghold where the zealots held off the Roman army for years due to their desert defying fresh water storage capabilities, first excavated and built by King Herod the First.
Amazing Water constructions in ancient times have been ignored by modern science, probably because such places are the dominion of archaeologists and crossing the boundaries of one discipline to another is a no-go activity for ‘professionals’. Water structures such as The megalithic Quebrada de Lavapatas creek in Colombia, and the Pool of Bethesda in Jerusalem pose many anomalous question regarding the use of water by our ancestors. One pioneering researcher of course totally rejected by the scientific and archaeological spheres of investigation is a remarkable man: Misroslav Provod.
Trees are magnificent pumps utilizing photosyntheses and capillary action; as molecules of water are launched off leaves due to the action of the sun, the next in-line ‘step up’ and this suction action is so powerful it can lift water higher than most man-made pumps. This beautiful suspended flowering tree-egg; a work of living art, was in Jaffa Israel, but long since died due to lack of watering!
Health Spas are not quite as popular as they once were; the city of Bath is named after the Roman bath house in the location. Others in Harrogate Yorkshire and all over the world, indoor and outdoor have hot springs, smelling of the sulphur that the water rises up through. Still very popular in Russia and ex-Soviet states.
Water gizmo’s, gadgets, stones, crystals etc.
A profusion of confusing options, but maybe they all work? or maybe belief and the placebo effect is operating, either way some are very expensive.
Grander Water: Johann Grander is another German interested in Water and also a bearded Victor Schauberger look-alike! Building ‘magnetic generators’ and claiming ‘Water Revitalisation’ as his discovery, but it must be accredited to Victor Schauberger who was into all this type of thing many years previously. Apparently on the land that Johann Grander purchased there was an old mine. It is from a spring in this mine that the water comes from. The Grander family business sells gadgets that attach to home or industrial water pipework to engender renewed vitality into the passing water, by some sort of induction, from a box containing the spring water. This apparently operates on the basis of water of a lower ‘frequency’ adopting a higher more vitalised one by being in its vicinity. Grander tried to patent some of these concepts, pens containing the water and other items such as pads to place water containers onto, but was refused, also there is a court case noted at the end of this document. I am not saying that this water is not of high quality (it is) nor these instruments invaluable, but caution is required, they are not inexpensive and there are many alternatives:
There are many water re-vitalizers being sold, that fit in-line in home plumbing, they are copper pipes that generate vortexes in the passing water flow, thus apparently vitalising it. Its on the basis of what Victor Schauberger found in nature; that the best drinking water was from a spring or in a river in both cases after the water has been tunnelling, churning, spiralling within and over rocks and sub-strata and passing lots of minerals and crystal quartz. The one shown here is from the people who are responsible for the book Dancing with Water. Such units cover all the water in the home rather than small drinking water ‘treatments’ such as the water egg and other systems including crystal and stone induction methods.
Yet another is from copper Spiral Water Pipes – SpiralWasser.
Then there is the GENESIS Water Energiser – this unit seems to have the lot, crystals, sacred geometry, and they do acknowledge its built on Victor Schauberger principles. However as I have come to understand it these types of units may ad some sort of effect, but they are not water filters or purifiers. For full vitalisation of water a certain type of spinning engine was used maybe similar to Victor Schauberger’s controversial Repulsin (apparently a flying saucer engine!).
WATER & CRYSTALS
Crystals have vibratory effects and electrical charges – Piezoelecticity – widely used in industry, so efficient they are used to keep time in watches and in multiple computer chip devices. In fact their capacity to accurately pulse from one state to another is the basis of all computing, and thus may have a certain detectable field surrounding them. The picture shown here is a water crystal that Dr. Masuru Emoto has been investigating and described in his book The Healing Power of Water and the ‘water memory’ stored in crystals within it. Crystaline structures in water and in stones, rocks and mountains; there seems to be some common baseline here. An entire industry has been generated around crystals from lucky charms to Himalayan salt crystal lamps , from crystal radio receivers to computer chips. Its interesting to note that crystalline formations and their representations are used in Islamic (tile) art to represent aspects of order in the Universe that is unseen to human eyes: how did they get that concept centuries before the microscope? Or was it based on the mathematics of Ancient Greece? If the claims of positive action on health from crystals and even the representation of them operate on some level, then we can assume this was also the original purpose of Islamic tile designs. Sacred Geometry or natural law of physics? its still very interesting. Could there be an organising field behind our perceived reality that generates templates through a crystalline design again conjecture? undiscovered physics? or intelligent design?
Water, Crystals, Mag-fields: as healing agents.
Homoeopathy, has been debunked by many including Richard Dawkins, however for some people it still seems to work in spite of its detractors. It may be again, the placebo effect, but this in itself should be a useful study as the only crutch the mind needs to heal itself is some physical stimulus to belief! The placebo is the most tested and therefore the most effective drug by far that medicine has! This line of thinking may go so far as to chime with the observer effect on the material world and the Quantum mechanics double-slit experiment as outlined by Tom Campbell (My Big Toe).
So it is claimed that vitalised water, crystals, magnetic fields and even the representation of certain geometric forms can all have a beneficial effect.
Salt Lamps give off negative ions, magnets and magnetic fields, electric fields and electronic medicine, earthing, negative ion water, PH and Alkaline water its a known fact that cancer cells don’t flourish in an alkaline body.
Anchi Crystals are said to be some of the most vital available. Interestingly using such things as well as electro-magnetic fields as assistive healing methods have proven to speed up the bodies ability to rapidly heal cuts and bruises for some athletes, and some Tour de France cycling teams have had positive results.
Portable water filters and water Ionizer, Hydrogen rich anti- oxidant water, ozonated Water– ‘Quantum Wave‘ units and many many more. Truespring is an interesting article about water. Then there is the concept of natural Vortexes at Sacred sites. Even popular locations such as: Mystery Spot, and the sceptical views about it.
One of the cheapest water energising methods is explained her: do it yourself water energising experiment.
Shungite is said to have great water purifying qualities.

Also I can’t leave this subject without the mention of associated items and theories: electrical/magnetic/frequency healing devices. Zappers – more controversial than water treatments.
There is a huge industry starting in this area, most want your money, you have to choose which is real or otherwise. And of course all such things must be careful investigated. But certainly mainstream science is not going down this rabbit hole any-time soon. Without any such corroborative and objective science for methods and products for balancing, invigorating, purifying and energizing of water; the watchword is of course caution. Some are from genuine people others are no doubt promoted for profit, some con-tricks, others well intentioned but maybe fanciful. This entire area needs you, yourself to judge. Maybe at least try one or maybe two affordable options before adopting the overall concept.
Our drinking water is full of chemical
treatments; is chlorinated to kill germs (bacteria), may have pesticides in it and so on, and if we can believe water to have a memory, then by logical deduction, no amount of energising, ionizing, structuring, filtering and so on will remove any previous encoding of the original water. So if you believe in any of this stuff then addressing such an underlying concept must be the first step: a method to remove all previous traces of bad energy/memory in water! So that would have to be the first step, filtration is a must, and energising it would be entirely redundant and unnecessary: if these two primary steps are taken. But how to do such a thing (again should you believe it?) Possibly a method derived by Dr Emoto? Making water transform: mutate from one state to another is borderland ‘science’ as current physics states; that transmutation of elements can only take place inside a star (sun).
The only person I have traced addressing this basic concept of completely changing the state of waters residual ‘memory’ is a lady called Carol Hathor (can this be her real name: HATHOR Egyptian goddess) See this YouTube Video. And this takes us much further down the rabbit hole! Maybe too far.
Drinking chlorine cannot be good for our health and research is begining to emerge that it might be one of the contributing causes for the rise in food allergies and many alergic conditions.
Everyone is out there on the internet selling items related to this subject: tubes, pipes filters, crystals, copper rings, pyramids, orgonite and probably others.
Uncannily some do appear to do something; for example the Tensor Ring from Slim Sperling. (shown opposite) Is it suggestion, the placebo effect, or a real elemental change in the water due to some ‘force’ within the ring? Tap water placed on the ring for a few minutes tastes good as bottled water; of course this might be totally subjective.
But it costs the same as one single bottle of the Grander water and can be used for ever. So its a cheaper way to self deception, if that is what’s happening here… or maybe here is something really amazing!
Certainly part of these effects can be attributed to the Placebo effect, but ‘if’ it works it works!
A note about drinking water; some people always go too excesses (one aspirin is good; so 50 or so must be better!) On this subject too much water can flush out valuable electro-lite chemical substances with the urine: mostly salts – leading to drinking so much you become dehydrated!!! And you loose the salts required.
A note about salt: like refined sugar white refined salt is bad for us, try to remove white salt from your diet, use unrefined salt (Himalayan etc).
For & Against
Interesting video: the ‘Physics of Crystals‘.
If you accept that healthy water, air etc are valuable you might go for walks near the see or at waterfalls, stay and breath in the air. For the home a water filter and ionizer might be a good investment. We are talking about prevention of ailments and a decent book on these subjects is PEMF:
Mae-Wan Ho, PhD
Life is Water Electric
Mae-Wan Ho, Director and founder of the Institute of Science in Society, is best known for pioneering work on the physics of organisms and sustainable systems and the liquid crystalline water of the living matrix. She is also a staunch critic of neo-Darwinian theory and the biotech industry. Much in demand as a public speaker and a prolific writer, Mae-Wan has more than 170 scientific publications, 18 books, and over 500 popular articles and essays across all disciplines.
Having retired in June 2000, she continues to teach as Visiting Professor of Biophysics at University of Cantania, Italy. Now her mission includes a global initiative to reclaim science and art for the public good. Mae-Wan will emphasize that electricity from water energizes and animates life and enables each single molecule to intercommunicate with every other. It is truly the means, medium, and message of life, “the rainbow within that mirrors the one in the sky”. This is the subject of her latest book Living Rainbow H2O (2012).
And back to the professor I started with: WATER Myth or what.
A note of caution, and a sobering court case:
Monday: September 11, 2006
Grander water: “Esoteric humbug”
Scientist won trial at the “Oberlandesgericht Wien” (High Court
Vienna (APA-OTS, 2006-09-06) – In a case that made national news, the High Court in Vienna, Austria, ruled in favour of Viennese biologist Dr. Erich Eder, after three years of trial. The Tyrolean company U.V.O., distributor of the GRANDER® products that supposedly “vitalize” water, had taken legal action against Dr. Eder as he had criticized their products as being “esoteric humbug”.
Scientists and consumer protection organizations have known for long about the inefficacy of the Grander® devices: “It remains unexplained to me why these devices still are allowed to be sold. They obviously have no effect whatsoever”, says Dr. Eder, an author and reviewer for the well-regarded scientific journal ‘Hydrobiologia’, and last year’s winner of the distinguished Science Encouragement Prize of the City of Vienna.
The final ruling of the Court: Dr. Eder is allowed to state that Grander technology and/or the Grander water are nothing but pseudoscientific humbug originating from esoteric ideas. Likewise, Dr. Eder’s moral reproach of the fact that people suffering from serious diseases like boreliosis or cancer could be brought to trust the effects of the “miracle water” and do without urgently required medical treatment, was considered as justified.
Regarding a clear case of fraud, the Court regarded Dr. Eder’s proof as insufficient, citing the Grander® distributor’s three month free return “satisfaction guarantee” provided to the customers. Eder: “This part of the ruling is purely a legal technicality – I am proud of having cleared up this company’s wrong allegations”. Dr. Eder doubts that customers would recognize the inefficacy of the Grander devices fast enough for them to return them within three months.
Evidence put forward by scientific experts requested by the tribunal confirmed Dr. Eder’s statement that no effect of Grander® water could be proven scientifically. The High Court has ruled in favour for Dr. Eder in a total of 88% of the claims. Recently in 2005, Grander® “technology” distributor Ecoworld NZ Ltd has been fined $60,000 in the Hamilton District Court for misleading people about the benefits of the Grander® water “treatment” system. The court also ordered compensation to be paid to consumers who purchased the product during the period under investigation. Dr. Eder: “I demand and explanation from the Austrian Science Minister, Elisabeth Gehrer: Why was Johann Grander, whose ineffective “invention” now has been officially ruled ‘esoteric humbug’, awarded with the Austrian Cross of Honour for Science? When will this distinction be revoked?”
If you decide you want to go with some type of water energiser, for drinking, then you will also need to filter the water (first) as none of the water ‘revitalisers’ have filtration.
There are then three stages – Water filtration, water re-vitalisation and storage (if not immediately drunk e.g. the Water Egg is effective for this in my own experience).
Three good and low cost filter options are:
http://www.purwater.com/ (leaves Flouride in !)
Clear2O Water Filtration Pitcher
Culligan Faucet Filter FM-15A
And one of the best that really gets out all the stuff in our tap water are devices like these: Kinetco… but not cheap.
And here is a Do-It-Yourself water purification and Ionization method: Old Lab Rat.
And here the same guy with a magnetic full house water method: Old Lab Rat.
Both the above options are by far the cheapest in comparison to everything described above, so if you are interested in such methods and concepts start with one of these first!
So its all hokum egh….
Well no not when there are secret military applications! Submarines and torpedoes that can travel faster than sound!
Back to Victor Schauberger. After WW2 the Russians took his ideas very seriously. Especially his thoughts about how Salmon and other fish defie the laws of physics in leaping up streams and standing still in raging currents. A membrane of converted water exuded from their nose area (mucus) any fisherman will tell you that fish are slimy and slippery.
Well, change the state of water and cause: a supercavitating underwater running body through a special secret liquid membrane and you can speed up an underwater vehicle to astounding speeds – apparently: see China’s secret subs. China’s Torpedo.
Makes you wonder about all the other stuff related to water; remember our bodies are over 90% water.
And this brings us back to observational scientist Eric Laithwaite who said that all we need to do is observe nature; everything we need, every new invention was first realised in nature. We just need to know how look, how observe, learn how to learn.
Other areas where discoveries are being found, or denounced are:
