Water is pretty much taken for granted in the UK, except when there’s a hosepipe ban in high summer. We regard it as ubiquitous and mundane but as water has become privatised, metered and rationed around the world, its significance is beginning to penetrate popular consciousness. The cost of water is accelerating – at 20% per annum over the last three years in London (Thames Water is owned by an Australian consortium led by Macquarie Group).
But water has magical properties which not even those who steal it from the rest of us for profit understand. To them, it is merely another God or nature given commodity to be exploited for private gain. Water is a commons and arguably one of the most important but, beyond that, its properties could be harnessed for everyone’s benefit and the environment, in a world that was less focused on profit and competition.
The current political economy destroyed Viktor Schauberger but, luckily for us, his legacy is being revived.
The Secrets of Water, The Documentary of Viktor Schauberger “Comprehend and Copy Nature”
A fascinating exploration of the groundbreaking discoveries and mind-blowing uses of waters secret qualities. Understand why vortexing water may be so beneficial to your health. Free-energy produced by the Repulsine device. An excellent documentary on the genius of Viktor Schaubeger and his son, Walter Schauberger who spent their life researching and utilizing waters hidden qualities.
Water Ways of Life – Viktor Schauberger
In this edition we are looking at the life and work of Viktor Schauberger, a well read but formally uneducated man who lived the greater proportion of his life observing and learning from nature. His insights and applications are so beautiful in their simplicity and in their application so harmonious with nature that his work and ideas deserve far greater recognition. In fact our planet is crying out for inventions based on Bio-technology such as Schauberger’s to become the norm of our industrial economy.
We are taught in school that water exists in only three states: solid, liquid and gas…
The Fourth Phase of Water: Dr. Gerald Pollack at TEDxGuelphU
Does water have a fourth phase, beyond solid, liquid and vapor?
University of Washington Bioengineering Professor Gerald Pollack answers this question, and intrigues us to consider the implications of this finding. Not all water is H2O, a radical departure from what you may have learned from textbooks.
Water seems to offer great promise in so many areas: health, environment, energy, transport, to name a few but for us to tap into this potential, we need to think and act cooperatively rather than follow the structural incentives to compete for profit….
Update on 18th February: below is a photograph of a glass of water distilled from 4 litres of mains tap water in the Thames Water area. In the glass on the right is some of the residue from the distillation process… that is what we pay for.
A separate sample taken from a different location, 5.5 miles away, produced a similar result, which suggests this is a function of industrialised water treatment by Thames Water, not a localised problem. Thames Water claims: “We carry out over half a million water quality tests a year with a 99.96% compliance rate. Our bills are also below the industry average.” This suggests that all other water provided by water companies in the UK is of similar quality, provided at a similar exorbitant cost.
