Water as the Source, the Regulator and Sustainer of Life
There are two kinds of science. Ancient philosophy, like Taoism, and traditional science saw all life as interconnected and interdependent. This holistic concept was codified by Goethe and led to the new science of quantum mechanics – where every created thing is part of a network – the universal energy field – called the etheric, the quantum or the Higgs field.
Mainstream science on the other hand, is deeply reductionist ─ the individual parts are more significant than the whole. This view grew from Isaac Newton and René Descartes and has now taken hold of the world culture. It has contributed to our sense of alienation from Nature, and our determination to dominate it, to extract and harness its energy, minerals and fossil fuels. Ours is the age of materialism and individualism.
For example, the medical prescription for a backache would be to take painkillers, rather than looking at the whole body for an imbalance which might have caused the symptoms. It can also lead to absurdities ─ like Richard Dawkins insisting that spirituality is not part of human nature ─ or of genetic engineers believing a plant can be healthy (healthy = whole) if foreign genes are introduced that cannot read the songsheet that the other genes have developed over hundreds or thousands of years.
Mainstream science has lost its way in the last hundred years; objective, independent research is no longer affordable. There are very few independent biologists who are able to finance holistic research into water. The view of conventional physics is limited to the physical (water as a molecular combination in which certain chemical reactions take place). However, conventional science does understand the physical properties of water – how it balances extremes, creates the weather and modifies climates.
The quantum field is also a bank of cosmic energy. Water, when it is in a turbulent state as in a stream, draws on this in order to nourish life and to raise the energy of an organism. The turbulence in this living water restructures the water, creating hundreds of laminar plates which act like a battery to store the energy at the appropriate level.
In order to be alive, water needs to move in spirals. Water from a tap is not living water. Our bodies are better nourished by drinking living water, which reduces the need for the body to bring it alive, for water in an organism is spiralling, living water. We can replicate living water by making an artificial vortex. The higher that the energy has been raised in the water, the more it will become healing water. Plants, nourished by energised water will flourish. Restructured water will retain its energy for 24 hours or so and will quickly lose it if heated.
Through the research of pioneers like Mae-Wan Ho and Viktor Schauberger, remarkable qualities of water have been found at the energetic or quantum level. As well as controlling the physical environment, water appears to have a life of its own. It seems to control the health of organisms, most of which are composed 70% of water. Energised water has been shown to bring positive nourishment to its environment, whether a stream to its banks or the spiralling water and blood systems in our own bodies and is responsible for development of the organism.
Water is the epitome of holism. It is the essential prerequisite for life and unites all of life in many ways. There seems to be a connection between water’s memory and the evolution of an organism. Could it be that water is the medium for evolutionary processes? Water is shown to have a level of intelligence in the way in which it stimulates, maintains and regulates life. Some researchers believe that water acts like an organism and acts as though with consciousness. Homoeopathy depends on water’s memory. The
The most exciting discovery in recent years has been the strange role that water plays in biological communication. The connective tissues that make up the bulk of all multi-cellular animals are crucial to the integrity of the organism. They are composed of a crystalline matrix of collagen proteins, macroscopically aligned to form a network linking up the whole body, embedded in water, which is 60 to 70% by weight. This makes the connective tissues the ideal medium for communication. This water is specially structured in chains along the collagen fibres and has the ability to self-organise.
Dr Ho believes this enables water associated with collagen to become super-conductive, the ideal medium for instantaneous intercommunication to coordinate all cellular activities. The extra-cellular and intra-cellular matrices together constitute an excitable continuum for rapid inter-communication permeating the entire organism, enabling it to function as a coherent whole.
Our biological water is the medium for communication, internal and external. Inter-cellular water is the medium that stores information and memory, whereas extra-cellular biological water is the medium for communication within the larger organism (in addition to its role in providing nutrients and waste removal).
Viktor Schauberger was an intuitive ecologist, warden of virgin Alpine forests. By carefully observing how water behaves in streams, he built up an amazing understanding of what water needs in order to stay healthy. His insights pioneered a quantum physical understanding of water. He became known as “The Water Wizard” and went on to develop applications of the extraordinary energies developed by inward-spiralling (imploded) water for engines to power flying saucers, submarines, air and water conditioners.
To understand life, we need to understand water’s role in creating and sustaining it. Water seems to encourage greater complexity, interdependence and integrity in all of creation. Alick Bartholomew’s book, The Story of Water attempts to explain these remarkable qualities in a readable and informative way.
