Introduction

WATER - The most common substance on earth. It is with us every moment of everyday,
but do we know the secrets of this amazing element?
Where has it come from? who brought water on our planet and why? Maybe the water
itself is the only one who knows the answers.
"Nothing under heaven is more weak, soft, tender, supple and pliant to surrender than water.
But to defeat the solid, stiff, hard and strong, nothing is better than water that has no equal. The
weak overcomes the strong, the soft overcomes the stiff" ."(Lao Tzu chapter 43) said the chinese
philosopher Lao Tzu1 2500 years ago.
From agriculture, to factories and hydropower, we put water to work in a million different
ways, and yet water acts outside all known physical laws of nature. At a time of global climate
change, understanding the mysteries of water is critical. Every living thing needs it to survive. Our
ignorance of its function and capacities has lead us to abuse its quality and forget its potential.

Water memory is a speculation that water is capable of retaining a "memory" of substances


once dissolved in it to arbitrary dilution. Shaking the water at each stage of a serial dilution is
claimed to be necessary for an effect to occur. The concept was proposed by Jacques Benveniste to
explain the purported therapeutic powers of homeopathic remedies, which are prepared by diluting
solutions to such a high degree that not even a single molecule of the original substance remains in
each final preparation. Benveniste sought to prove this basic tenet of homeopathy by conducting an
experiment to be published "independently of homeopathic interests" in a major journal.

While some studies, including Benveniste's, have reported such an effect, double-blind
replications of the experiments involved have failed to reproduce the results, and the concept is not
accepted by the scientific community. Liquid water does not maintain ordered networks of
molecules longer than a small fraction of a nanosecond

Nowadays we discover more and more unusual properties of water and its unending
potential . Examine cutting-edge technology that suggests our thoughts affect the structure of water.
These new discoveries go beyond human reckoning - beyond the solar systems and galaxies to the
source of life itself.

Water -the foundation of life

Water is the foundation of life. It is still a mystery for science how non-living matter
transformed into a living one. New properties of water have to be studied, though it seems like we
know all about it already.

In March 2004 an American space probe found 'traces’ of water on Mars and salt in a dried
up lake , this made scientists to presume that perhaps there has been and still is life on this planet.

In August 2008 Nasa’s Phoenix lander spacecraft has for the first time identified water in a
sample of soil collected from the planet’s surface.

Scientists are more and more convinced that the availability of water on space objects is
more a rule, than an exception. The paradigm of public thinking with regard to the properties of
water is also changing

NASA announced on November 14, 2009, that a "significant quantity" of frozen water was
found on the Moon. The probe has detected the presence of water in a constantly eclipsed lunar
crater.

Beyond the facts, let's look at the discovery from the position of biophysics. The average
distance from the Earth to the Moon is 384 400 km. Indeed, this scientific achievement overturns the
paradigm for the presence of water in the Solar system. Both Moon and Earth are practically the
same distance from the Sun. The discovery of American scientists will help us to appreciate better
the factors that contribute to the emergence of living matter.

Scientists from the European Southern Observatory working in Chile have found a new
planet outside our solar system that is more like Earth than any other known planet. Although the
new planet is relatively close to us in astronomical terms - less than 200 trillion kilometers away --
astronomers need much more information before they can predict whether it harbors life.

5
The new planet is 14 times closer to its sun than the Earth
is to the Sun. But because Gliese 581 is so cool, the planet is not
scorched by solar radiation. It zips around the star at express
speed, making just 13 days to complete an orbit.

"We have estimated that the mean temperature of this super-


The New Earth-Gliese 581
Earth lies between 0 and 40°C, and water would thus be liquid," said lead researcher Stephane Udry
of Switzerland's Geneva University.3

"Moreover, its radius should be only 1.5 times the Earth's radius, and models predict that the planet
should be either rocky – like our Earth – or covered with oceans."4

"Liquid water is critical to life as we know it," said Xavier Delfosse, a team member from Grenoble
University in France.

The observatories would seek to identify trace of atmospheric gases such as methane, and even
markers for chlorophyll, the pigment in Earth plants that plays a substantional role in photosynthesis.

My opinion is that it is absolutely possible for the “bio computer” water with its “memory”
and substances with an effort of nature “forces” to create „living” water and in this water -living
cells on the planet Gliese 581 C.

Living organisms and man are complex self-organizing systems. They areopen, because they
continually exchange substances and energy with the environment. The changes in the open systems
are relatively stable in time. The stable correlation between the components in an open system is
called a dissipative structure.

It has been proven experimentally that water is also a self-organizing system 5. The
expectations are that changes in water as a result of an external influence will be relatively stable in
time.

This signifies that water “remembers” physical or chemical influences. The question about
water “memory” is of exceptional interest. Yet one can hardly explain the origination of living
matter without this property. The first research studies, related to the memory of water, were effected
by Deryagin and Churaev (1971). The durability of the results in time after an “activation” with an
alternating magnetic field and upon electrolysis through a nuclear filter were performed by Minenko
(1981) and Evseev (1982). Analyses have been carried out on the changes in the spectrum of natural
waters .

The origination of a living cell is possible under extreme conditions and, with time, the
stabilization of said conditions, which preserves the originating structures. The formed self-
organizing structure aims to safeguard its state from the conditions of the external environment. This
calls for the universal solvent –water – with its unique properties and specific substances. The
vitality of living matter is proved even in the existence of archi-bacteria. They live in conditions of
strong radioactivity, low temperatures, in volcano craters.

It looks like the water drop evaporates gradually. Antonov and Yuskeselieva prove a new
physical effect. The water drop evaporates discreetly (unevenly). This effect depends on the energy
states of the hydrogen bonds between the oxygen atoms of the water molecules and the hydrogen
atoms of neighboring molecules.

Water memory
There is indisputable proof that water lies in the foundation of living matter in the favorable
conditions of our planet. Without the property of water “memory”, one could hardly explain the
origination of living matter. The clusters, which interact
with chemical substances, effect evolution.

Two scientists (Antonov and Galabova) prove


through spectral analysis that water is an open and self-
organizing system. Water and the living organisms react
sensitively to energy flows and store information from the
environment. They apply the method of the Differential
cluster
Non-equilibrium Energy Spectrum (DNES).

The water molecule clusters are the smallest and most unstable self-organizing structures in
Nature. Changes in the water clusters as a result of internal influences could be relatively stable in
time. The larger the cluster formation, the longer time information is stored regarding the physical or
chemical factor. Stable self-organizing structures are obtained, which could carry future information
concerning living matter.

Water molecules are restructured as a result of external influences. When they have received
energy, they transfer information about their status to neighboring molecules through hydrogen
bonds. This is done on the resonance principle .

In order to explain the structuring of clusters, one should approach it from a quantum-
mechanic way. In the contrary case, one would find it hard to explain how the water molecules are
structured in geometric clusters (“polymers”).

The classic polymer – this is a molecule in which the atoms are connected through covalent
bonds, not through hydrogen ones. It is experimentally proven, that 10% of the hydrogen bonds are
covalent .

8
Under certain conditions one could also speak of “activated” water. Yet this statement brings
suspicions in some scientists. It is proven that cancer cells “lacerate” the energy hydrogen bonds
between water molecules the most6. The blood plasma of person who has died from a malignant
tumor does not react to biophysical fields . Yes, water can be ‘activated’ and bear information
regarding the living. Some experiments made by japanese scientist Emoto Masaru shows
crystallized water after a strong earthquake and 3 months later . A conclusion can be drawn from
this experiment too that, under favorable conditions, water can concentrate information in a small
volume of water clusters.

In 1963, the Tanzanian high school student Erasto Mpemba observed that hot water freezes
faster than cold water. This phenomenon is called the “Mpemba effect”. Actually, much earlier than
Mpemba, this unique water property was noted by Aristotle, Francis Bacon, and Rene Descartes.
This phenomenon has been proven with a series of independent experiments. Water demonstrates yet
another one of its strange properties. In my opinion, the explanation is the following: the differential
non-equilibrium energy spectrum (DNES) of boiled water has a smaller average energy of the
hydrogen bonds among the water molecules than the sample having a room temperature 7. The boiled
sample needs less energy to begin to structure crystals and to freeze.

First initiatives
BBC science series reported at 09:23 GMT, on Friday, 25 July 2008, that twenty years ago,
in the summer of 1988, the world of science was rocked by one of the most controversial research
papers ever published in the highly-respected journal "Nature."8

The most prominent advocate of the idea of water memory was the French immunologist
Jacques Benveniste. His team at the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research
(INSERM) diluted a solution of human antibodies to such a degree that there was no likelihood that
a single molecule remained. Nonetheless, they reported, human basophils responded to the solutions
just as though they had encountered the original antibody (part of the allergic reaction). The effect
was reported only when the solution was shaken violently during dilution. Benveniste stated: "It was
like shaking your car keys in the Seine at Paris and then discovering that water taken from the mouth
of the river would start your car!"9At the time, Benveniste offered no theoretical explanation for the
effect.

Benveniste submitted the research to the prominent science journal Nature for publication.
There was concern on the part of Nature's editorial oversight board that the material, if published,
would lend credibility to homeopathic practitioners even if the effects were not replicable. There was
equal concern that the research was simply wrong, given the changes that it would demand of the
known laws of physics and chemistry. The editor of Nature, John Maddox, stated that, "Our minds
were not so much closed as unready to change our whole view of how science is constructed."
Rejecting the paper on any objective grounds was deemed unsupportable, as there were no
methodological flaws apparent at the time.

In the end, a compromise was reached. The paper was published in Nature Vol. 333 on 30
June 1988, but it was accompanied with an editorial by Maddox that noted "There are good and

particular reasons why prudent people should, for the time being, suspend judgment" and described
some of the fundamental laws of chemistry and physics which it would violate, if shown to be true.
Additionally, Maddox demanded that the experiments be re-run under the supervision of a hand-
picked group of what became known as "ghostbusters", including Maddox, famed magician-cum-
paranormal researcher James Randi, and Walter Stewart, a physicist and free-lance debunker at the
U.S. National Institutes of Health

After the Nature controversy, Benveniste gained the public support of Brian Josephson, a
Nobel laureate physicist with a reputation for openness to paranormal claims. Experiments continued
along the same basic lines, culminating with a 1997 paper claiming the effect could be transmitted
over phone lines. This was followed by two additional papers in 1999 and another on remote-
transmission in 2000 by which time it was claimed that it could also be sent over the internet.

Time magazine reported in 1999 that, in response to skepticism from physicist Robert Park,
Josephson had challenged the American Physical Society (APS) to oversee a replication by
Benveniste. This challenge was to be "a randomized double-blind test", of his claimed ability to
transfer the characteristics of homeopathically diluted water over the Internet. The APS accepted the
challenge and offered to cover the costs of the test. When he heard of this, Randi also offered to
throw in the long-standing $1 million prize for any positive demonstration of the paranormal, to
which Benveniste replied: "Fine to us." in his DigiBio NewsLetter. However, Randi later noted that
Benveniste and Josephson did not follow up on their challenge, mocking their silence on the topic as
if they were missing persons.

An independent test of the 2000 remote-transmission experiment was carried out in the USA
by a team funded by the United States Department of Defense. Using the same experimental devices
and setup as the Benveniste team, they failed to find any effect when running the experiment.
Several "positive" results were noted, however, but only when a particular one of Benveniste's
researchers was running the equipment. "We did not observe systematic influences such as pipetting
differences, contamination, or violations in blinding or randomization that would explain these
effects from the Benveniste investigator. However, our observations do not exclude these
possibilities."

11
Benveniste admitted to having noticed this himself. "He stated that certain individuals
consistently get digital effects and other individuals get no effects or block those effects." The
experiment is notable for the way it attempted to avoid the confrontational nature of the earlier
Maddox test.

Third-party attempts at replication of the Benveniste experiment have failed to produce


positive results that could be independently replicated. In 1993, Nature published a paper describing
a number of follow-up experiments that failed to find a similar effect, and an independent study
published in Experientia in 1992 showed no effect. An international team led by Professor
Madeleine Ennis of Queen's University of Belfast claimed in 1999 to have replicated the Benveniste
results. Randi then forwarded the $1 million challenge to the BBC Horizon program to prove the
"water memory" theory following Ennis' experimental procedure. In response, experiments were
conducted with the Vice-President of the Royal Society, Professor John Enderby, overseeing the
proceedings. The challenge ended with no memory effect observed by the Horizon team. For a piece
on homeopathy, the ABC program 20/20 also attempted, unsuccessfully, to reproduce Ennis's
results.

Research published in 2005 on hydrogen bond network dynamics in water showed that
"liquid water essentially loses the memory of persistent correlations in its structure" within fifty
millionths of a nanosecond.

Emoto's experiments

Masaru Emoto is a Japanese author known for his claim that if human speech or thoughts are
directed at water droplets before they are frozen, images of the resulting water crystals will be
beautiful or ugly depending upon whether the words or thoughts were positive or negative. Emoto
claims this can be achieved through prayer, music or by attaching written words to a container of
water.10

10
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masaru_Emoto, January 15 2010, 23:10:01

12
Scientist Emoto managed to visualize the arrangement of the water molecules in clusters by
freezing the water after different types of influences. The crystals of frozen water are arranged in a
certain way. The ice “remembers” the pre-history of the liquid water phase after an influence has
been effected. He conducted an experiment by influencing water with different frequencies. The
interesting thing is that the higher the frequency, the clearer the pictures. This is a visible proof that
water reacts differently to different influences. .

With the origination and evolution of living matter, the water molecules, the cells and the
tissues exchange biophysical fields among them. Depending on the energy status, the energy from
the environment is either received in the living organisms (“give”mode) or is lost (“take” mode) (Dr.
Ignatov, Antonov,Galabova, 1998). The same authors prove that in “give” and “take” mode an
energy redistribution is effected between water molecules. The duration of the information stored is
four months

From Emoto's work we are provided with factual evidence, that human vibrational energy,
thoughts, words, ideas and music, affect the molecular structure of water, the very same water that
comprises over seventy percent of a mature human body and covers the same amount of our planet.
Water is the very source of all life on this planet, the quality and integrity are vitally important to all
forms of life.

The body is very much like a sponge and is composed of trillions of chambers called cells
that hold liquid. The quality of our life is directly connected to the quality of our water.

13
Water is a very malleable substance. Its physical shape easily adapts to whatever
environment is present. But its physical appearance is not the only thing that changes, the molecular
shape also changes. The energy or vibrations of the environment will change the molecular shape of
water. In this sense water not only has the ability to visually reflect the environment but it also
molecularly reflects the environment.

Emoto has been visually documenting these molecular changes in water by means of his
photographic techniques. He freezes droplets of water and then examines them under a dark field
microscope that has photographic capabilities.

His work clearly demonstrates the diversity of the molecular structure of water and the effect
of the environment upon the structure of the water.

Discover how each source has an effect on the visual photographed structure...

Snow has been falling on the earth for more than a few million years. Each snowflake, as we
have been told, has a very unique shape and structure. By freezing water and taking a photograph of
the structure, as Emoto has done, you get incredible information about the water.

Emoto has discovered many fascinating differences in the crystalline structures of water from
many different sources and different conditions around the planet. Water from pristine mountain
streams and springs show the beautifully formed geometric designs in their crystalline patterns.

Polluted and toxic water from industrial and populated areas and stagnated water from water
pipes and storage dams show definitively distorted and randomly formed crystalline structures.11

Thoughts and Words Affect Water

After seeing water react to different environmental conditions, pollution and music, Mr.
Emoto and colleagues decided to see how thoughts and words affected the formation of untreated,
distilled, water crystals, using words typed onto paper by a word processor and taped on glass bottles
overnight.

The same procedure was performed using the names of deceased persons. The waters were
then frozen and photographed.

Masaru Emotos work is a display and powerful tool, that can change our perceptions of
ourselves and the world we live in, forever. We now have an evidence that we can positively heal
and transform ourselves and our planet by the thoughts we choose to think and the ways in which we
put those thoughts into.

Bioresonance and homeopathy


The stability of the clusters depends on the resonance between the separate molecules. The
availability of carbon compounds and ions of chemical elements could lead to an uncompensated
electric charge and potential in a structure that is stable for the effectuation of biological processes.
In the cluster structures, the information between the organic and water molecules can be stored on
the grounds of bioresonance.

The bioresonance frequencies among biophysical fields and water molecules, cells and
tissues are proven. The founder of the bioresonance theory is Dubrov (1980). The bioresonance
manifestations in tissues are proven upon influence of biophysical fields on the visual analyzer in
“give” and “take” mode. The‘bearer’ of biophysical information is also proven with bioresonance.
Comparatively weak electromagnetic and biophysical fields provoke significant biophysical and
biological effects on living organisms. The fundamental thing is that the basic frequencies after
influence of biophysical fields on water and tissues coincide. The basic bioresonance frequencies are
found in the electromagnetic diapason, in which the Earth receives energy from the Sun. And this
energy restructures the bio-computer called water.

There exist interesting proof already that several molecules from a


certain substance can significantly change the structure of water clusters.
Homeopathy is a classical example for this. Experiments were conducted
under the leadership of the eminent French immunologist Benveniste. The
homeopathic principle was reproduced on biological models. When to one
of the immune cells types in man specific antibodies interacting with them

17
were added, a cell reaction was observed. Upon decrease of the concentration of the antibodies in
some dilutions, an effect was observed, and in other cases – it disappeared. Such an alteration of
biological activity of “solutions” was also observed in concentrations when the probability of the
presence of even one protein molecule was only slight. The authors presumed that the transfer of
biological information was due to the “memory” of water.

Thoughts
We've presented the things that we don’t know yet about water, even if we did walk on the
moon or discover the atomic bomb.

What surprises us most about water is that::

1. Water has a changeable structure. The chemical composition remains the same, of course, but
the structure – the physical model of the atoms in the water molecule – can change in unusual
ways. One of the key scientist in this article is Masaru Emoto famous for his water crystal
pictures. This structural water change can be interpreted as a form of water memory, or
information computing.
2. The water structure can be changed by human thoughts or emotions. If the first property is
somehow easier to understand, the second is one of the most surprising and revolutionary
ideas – if proved true.
3. The water structure can affect back our thoughts and emotions. The quality and information
contained in the water can dramatically affect human behavior. Knowing the fact that we’re
80% water, this doesn’t seem too unusual.
4. The structural changes of the water can physically propagate over a variety of other
materials, including air, explaining partially bioresonance and homeopathy.

If all this things are true then we are in front of a major breakthrough. We’re surrounded by
water, we’re made of water so the way in which we interact with this element is fundamental.

18
The most challenging approach about this is the fact that water can act as an information
propagation medium, sort of a computer. A giant super-computer made of water is something even
more revolutionary than Matrix, if you know what I mean. It could be the most advanced yet simple
information storage and computing machine ever invented, a device in front of which even the most
advanced man-made computer will look like a toy.
