a highly readable and in-depth PRESENTATION.

"When you start drinking better water on a long-term basis, and you try to go back to other kinds of water, even for a temporary basis, you may think they taste good, but you may not be able to drink them at all!". - Hannah

god helps those who help themselves*  

by hannah kroeger

one of the most effective healers/herbalists of recent times. this is what hannah says about drinking water:

"Water is an essential nutrient needed for everyday life.

Most people ask what is the right kind of water to drink, but very few people know about the vibration of water and its compatibility with your body."



HANNAH ALSO SAYS: "HAVE WATER DELIVERED TO YOUR RESIDENCE IN LARGE PLASTIC JUGS.For dispensing the water, put the water in smaller blue-tinted containers such as 12L with a high grade plastic similar to the 5 Gallon Jugs (18.9Litre) bottles delivered from local Spring water.You can also use a plastic pump to dispense the water.

Spring Water is also good for cleansing and fasting.


Use Reverse Osmosis, or Distilled, or Purified Waters (demineralized waters) only for a short period of time.
Pay attention to their vibration.

reverse osmosis water, is usually acidic because of the lack of minerals, and is mostly likely to have the vibration of tap water. 
These waters should not be used for any fast, with or without herbs, short term or long-term unless supervised".

    In her book she has a section about treated/purified sewerage in UK and the tests which showed how it can (through rivers, and thence to drinking water) have a serious damaging affect on drinkers of such water. Auckland Region’s population is now at risk from such water, as the treated Hamilton and Huntly et al sewerage flows into the Waikato River, and then to the home water taps of those in the Auckland Region. Her book refers to ’50 ways to lose your fertility’. Hormonal disrupting chemicals are not classical poisons in the ‘normal’ sense, nor typical carcinogens. BUT they can be very dangerous to our and our childrens’ and grandchildrens’ health.

Life at the Cell and Below-Cell Level

by Gilbert N. Ling


"The work is genuinely revolutionary. The thesis is full of penetrating insights in the inner workings of the cell, offering a dramatic alternative to the "conventional wisdom" of current views. Ling demonstrates that many textbook axioms of cell function are incompatible with evidence and logic, and goes on to produce a richly detailed construct that shows promise of being largely correct. It is both a fascinating read and a monumental contribution to science."

Snow Crystals

(Dover Pictorial Archive) Paperback – June 1, 1962   

by W. A. Bentley  &  W. J. Humphreys 

"Of all the forms of water the tiny six-pointed crystals of ice, called snow, are incomparably the most beautiful and varied." -- Wilson Bentley (1865-1931). Did you ever try to photograph a snowflake? The procedure is very tricky. The work must be done rapidly in extreme cold, for even body heat can melt a rare specimen that has been painstakingly mounted. The lighting must be just right to reveal all the nuances of design without producing heat. But the results can be rewarding, as the work of W. A. Bentley proved.
For almost half a century, Bentley caught and photographed thousands of snowflakes in his workshop at Jericho, Vermont, and made available to scientists and art instructors samples of his remarkable work. In 1931, the American Meteorological Society gathered together the best of these photomicrographs, plus some slides of frost, glaze, dew on vegetation and spider webs, sleet, and soft hail, and text by W. J. Humphreys, and had them published. 
The book is of great value both to students of ice forms and for textile and other designers who can use the natural designs of these snow crystals in their work. Every photograph is royalty-free; you may use up to 10 without fees, permission, or acknowledgement.
"A most unusual and very readable book." — NaturE

LIVING WATER by Olof Alexandersson - 'Viktor Schauberger and the Secrets of Natural Energy'. Originally published in 1982, and has since been updated with list of new related research projects in Appendices of revised publication.


Hidden Nature  by Alick BartholomewPioneers a new Science of Nature-- Offers striking new arguments against GM technologies-- Proposes startling solutions to our energy needs-- Foreword by David BellamyAustrian naturalist Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958) was far ahead of his time. From his unusually detailed observations of the natural world, he pioneered a completely new understanding of how nature works. He also foresaw, and tried to warn against, the global waste and ecological destruction of our age.This book describes and explains Schauberger's insights in contemporary, accessible language. His remarkable discoveries -- which address issues such as sick water, ailing forests, climate change and, above all, renewable energy -- have dramatic implications for how we should work with nature and its resources.

The Spiritual Life of Water by Alick Bartholomew
Water’s wisdom on renewal, communication, and holism
• How water, as a conscious organism, unites all of creation in one vast communication network
• Includes the research of Masaru Emoto and Viktor Schauberger
• Discusses the energetics of water, water treatments, finding the best-quality water, and the perils of bottled and distilled water

Once held sacred the world over, water contains a wisdom few today acknowledge. Driving everything from our metabolic processes to weather patterns and climate change, its real significance lies in its role as a medium for metamorphosis, recycling, and exchanging energy and information.

Seeking a return to our ancestors’ reverence for water, Alick Bartholomew explores water’s sacred uses, its role in our bodies and environment, and the latest scientific studies to reveal that water is a conscious organism that is self-creating and self-organizing. Examining new discoveries in quantum biology, he shows how water binds all of life into one vast network of energy, allowing instant communication and coherence. Covering the research of water visionaries such as Viktor Schauberger, Mae-Wan Ho, and Masaru Emoto, he examines the memory of water and reveals how the same water has been cycling through Earth’s history since the dawn of time, making water nature’s greatest recycling and reclaiming agent. With information on the energetics of water, water treatments, finding the best-quality water, and the perils of bottled and distilled water, this book offers us a path to reclaim the spirituality of water.

Water is an essential part of metabolic processes in the body and DNA depends on it. Water is essential to photosynthesis. The common denominator of all living systems, it performs many well-attested, complex roles in the maintenance, health & nutrition of all organisms.

Water has a memory. It can store dynamic energy, and through restructuring is able to carry more complex information from the Earth and the Cosmos which, as Nature’s manager, it imparts to organisms. It receives cosmic information from the quantum field.

When moving correctly, water is self-organising and self-purifying. It behaves as though it had consciousness. Water is generally associated with the more complex states of awareness ― emotional, intuitive, creative, qualitative, etc. It is appropriate, therefore, that water should be the medium for theircommunication.

Water’s fundamental property is that of holism, which is the principle that gives meaning and purpose to life. So life is no longer seen as an accidental, mechanical process, but an integrated and dynamic journey towards higher consciousness. Every action has consequences. There are, indeed, natural laws which we deny at our peril. Water follows these laws. It is a great inspiration and a marvellous teacher.

Unless we can understand water’s true role in life and in evolution and learn the lessons water freely offers, how can we hope, as a species, to survive?

This breakthrough book recounts the extraordinary role of water in creating and sustaining life. How it stimulates evolution and balances the environment, constantly encouraging greater complexity, interdependence and integrity in all of creation.Part I of this comprehensive book deals with water’s origins, its basic qualities, and the all-important cycles it performs in the atmosphere, on the Earth’s surface and the interior, in plants and other living organisms, and especially in the human body. Much of this is known to mainstream science.

Part II examines water’s qualities as an organism with biology’s new quantum view of how water is able to perform its complex roles in communication, balancing energies, storing information. It examines the challenge of holism and evolution, with a summary of the effects of climate change on water supplies.

Its themes include: Mae-Wan Ho’s research into the long-range order or coherence of water & Martin Chaplin’s on the importance of biological cell water and its two states; Viktor Schauberger’s discovery of the importance of vortexical movement of water; Theodor Schwenk’s evidence for how water conveys cosmic patterns to life forms; Jacques Beneviste’s evidence for memory in water; Cleve Backster’s research into biocommunication, andMasaru Emoto’s for its sensitivity to the emotions, music and pollution.

A wide range of other aspects of water are discussed: dowsing, planting by the Moon, water birthing, water as an engine fuel, why the best surfers are mystics, evolutionary theories, how planetary movements affect bud growth, trees as biocondensers of energy, what’s so special about biodiversity – and many more!

Part III includes practical material on the causes and likely outcome of the coming world crisis with water, and a study of some of the solutions. Much information is given on how to access the best quality of living water for our health, and various water treatments; the perils of bottled and distilled water, etc.

The book shows, in the simple language of holistic science, how water’s role as the stage manager of life is really a partnership (as co-creator) with the field of quantum energy (which some call “the God field”) that surrounds us.

Why This Book Is Important

You will know that one of the surprising discoveries made by quantum physics is that space is not empty, but filled with energy; it is called the quantum energy field. The quantum physics pioneers didn’t realise that this was known by cultures as early as the Vedic, 3,000 years ago; it also resonates with the prana of Hindu metaphysics.

Physicists in our time, e.g David Bohm and Fritjof Capra, have made the link between the quantum field and the ancients’ idea that ‘all is one’ — everything is inter-connected and, indeed, inter-dependent. J.W.von Goethe (1749–1832) was the first to make the distinction between the newly emerging reductionist world view and the traditional nature-centred view that he called the ‘holistic’.

So what is the function of the quantum field? Rudolf Steiner and his interpreter Theodor Schwenk believed it is the encoded data bank of the information required for evolution to proceed. I have accepted this as a viable hypothesis, and have built on it using the age-old concepts of yin/yang balance. Esotericists and scientists alike have used the idea that action, movement and evolution proceed along a pathway of alternating attraction between positive and negative forces. You might call it ‘the electromagnetic principle’ which is the driving force of life.

While there are as yet few ideas on how this information is communicated by the quantum field, fascinating research has been done in recent years on the quantum, or subtle energy levels of water which demonstrates that, in higher energy dimensions, water has an important role in communication between life forms, from the cellular to the organic. The radical hypothesis I present in the book is that water and the quantum field are partners in the communication of energy to life, the quantum field with a yang polarity and the water domain with a yin.

Quantum biology research has demonstrated extraordinary qualities and anomalies which make water the perfect vehicle for stimulating the evolution of higher levels of order, in sophistication, in biodiversity and in the complexity of inter-dependencies. Many chemists say that it is the asymmetry of the water molecule that allows it to perform its life-creation role. Apparently life depends on the curious structures and anomalous nature of water.

In its evolutionary role water’s functions include the creation of optimum climates, building soil and fertility; breaking down and dissolving substances into their constituent parts. From the atmosphere it takes nitrogen, oxygen and CO2, while from rocks it absorbs potassium, sodium, calcium etc. It is constantly moving around the building blocks of life, taking from one source and depositing them elsewhere for new growth, in a fortuitous manner which can hardly be accidental.

The Story of Water: Source of Life by Alick Bartholomew

This book is the same as the above book--- but is the UK edition with different name. The US edition above called The Spiritual Life of Water is more comprehensive

Water shapes our landscapes and sustains life on Earth. It also influences our emotions and inspires imagination and creativity. Yet we take it for granted, treating it as a convenience or for cleansing. In this comprehensive new book, Alick Bartholomew argues controversially that water is the medium of communication between all living organisms. He suggests that only through understanding water’s true role in Nature can we begin to live responsibly and sustainably. The book covers all aspects of water, from water in the cosmos and solar system, through the Earth's water cycles, to water in our bodies and in plants. It goes on to consider the larger picture as well: water's cosmic role, the memory of water, and its crucial relationship to the quantum field. Finally, the author addresses the future: the global water crisis and how to access the best quality of living water for human health. This is a serious but popularly-written illustrated book which offers an original and fascinating study of water as a vital dimension that interconnects all life on Earth.

A fearless exponent of natural energy who revelled in doing battle with contemporary orthodox scientists, his work is enjoying a worldwide revival because he was able to convey how an understanding of Nature’s subtle energies is essential to our survival. This, and the fact that he developed free energy machines by harnessing the magical processes of Nature, has made Viktor Schauberger truly a man of our times.
Following the success of The Water Wizard, Nature as Teacher details Schauberger’s thinking about environmental catastrophe. It includes correspondence with contemporaries and, in particular, his feelings of frustration at the blindness of those in mainstream science who seemed to him to be more concerned with their own welfare and their pride than with the fate of humanity.
This volume gives tremendous insight into what is happening on the Earth today and presents practical solutions on how we may yet save our precious world. Most telling is Schauberger’s elucidation of the vital natural cycles that modern unthinking technologies have interrupted and harmed, sometimes irreparably.

Eco-Technology Series by Callum Coats --- (1)The Water Wizard

More energy is encapsulated in every drop of good spring water than an average-sized power station is presently able to produce.Viktor Schauberger (1885–1958)

Water – all life depends on it. Yet how often do we stop to consider its true significance, its essential nature? The Water Wizard, the first volume of the Eco-Technology series which presents the original, passionate and convincing research of Viktor Schauberger in translation for the first time, looks at the importance of water to our daily lives.

Schauberger was a pioneering genius who combined keen observation of Nature with intuitive brilliance and a sharp engineer’s brain. One of the first genuine environmentalists, he was predicting ecological catastrophe when no-one else could see it coming. In the era of global warming, deforestation and desertification, Schauberger’s predictions are now being proven right. A fearless exponent of natural energy who revelled in doing battle with contemporary orthodox scientists, his work is enjoying a worldwide revival because he was able to convey how an understanding of Nature’s subtle energies is essential to our survival.

Schauberger made a lifelong study of water – from mountain streams to river flows and from domestic supplies to advances hydraulics – developing profound and radical theories about its inherent energies, which earned him the name of ‘the Water Wizard’. According to Schauberger, water is akin to blood in the human body – the most important life-giving and energy-empowering substance on the planet. Yet, with incorrect, ignorant handling, it becomes diseased, affecting human, animal and vegetable life alike, causing physical decay and, in the case of people, their moral, mental and spiritual deterioration as well. Sadly, the same extractive and water management policies that Schauberger indicts in The Water Wizard, which brought devastation and widespread pollution in his day, are still being practiced today, leading to a revival of interest in Schauberger’s work.

Themes covered in The Water Wizard include:

    The natural pulsation of water and how to maintain it
    How minute differences in temperature affect the natural function of water in the earth, in plants and in rivers
    How to regulate rivers without damaging their vitality and health
    The natural conversion of sea-water into fresh water
    The consequences of sterilisation and chlorination of water.

The Eco-Technology series makes available for the first time Viktor Schauberger’s original writings and passionate debates. Callum Coats has painstakingly collected, translated and edited the material for what promises to be the most definitive study yet of this extraordinary man’s life and work.

Eco-Technology Series by Callum Coats --- (2)Nature As Teacher

Today we are standing helpless and perplexed. With no glimmer of improvement anywhere in sight, we feel hopelessly propelled towards a forlorn future. It is understandable therefore than an increasing number of people, sick and tired of this insane activity, are now seeking ways to return to Mother Nature.Viktor Schauberger (1885–1958)

Nature as Teacher, the second volume of the Eco-Technology series which presents the original, passionate and convincing research of Viktor Schauberger in translation for the first time, looks at the ways in which we can return to the vital natural cycles that have been interrupted by modern unthinking technologies.

Schauberger was a pioneering genius who combined keen observation of Nature with intuitive brilliance and a sharp engineer’s brain. One of the first genuine environmentalists, he was predicting ecological catastrophe in the 1930s when no-one else could see it coming. Schauberger’s predictions are now being proven right. He foresaw:

    Global warming and its devastating consequences
    Increasing violence and lawlessness as the direct result of destructive methods which block Nature’s energies and balance.
    The destruction of the world’s forests and ecosystems.

Eco-Technology Series by Callum Coats --- (3)The Fertile Earth

How does nature work? When one looks closely at the enormously complex web of life, it is impossible not to be caught by the wonder of how all living things – including rocks and crystals – are interconnected. Just as there is thought behind action, so there is energy behind matter. Includes a chapter about the influence of temperature and water movement.

Schauberger was a pioneering genius who combined keen observation of Nature with intuitive brilliance and a sharp engineer’s brain.

His work is enjoying a worldwide revival because he was able to convey how an understanding of Nature’s subtle energies is essential to our survival. This Fertile Earth contains his innovative theories as well as his very last letters on the subject, providing an alternative analysis of the unharnessed and vital power of Nature.

Eco-Technology Series by Callum Coats --- (4) The Energy Revolution (includes purifying and energising water)

The Energy Evolution, the final volume in the revolutionary Eco-Technology series, contains radical environmentalist Viktor Schauberger’s groundbreaking writings on methods for energy generation that harness the enormous potential of Nature.

Nature produces energy by slow, cool, implosive means – by a centripetal inward motion, while our present culture uses explosive centrifugal (outwards) movement, which is wasteful and many times less powerful and effective. It also uses up the Earth’s resources and pollutes her ecosystems.

This volume describes different kinds of energy machines which depend on the principle of implosion:

    A spring water-producing machine
    A tornado home energy generator
    A Klimator which produces mountain-quality air
    The biotechnical submarine
    A technique for producing power from ocean deeps
    A flying saucer prototype which rose at fantastic speed to high altitudes
    A perpetual motion suction-based implosion machine

The Holy Order of Water: Healing the Earth's Waters and Ourselves by William E Marks      

 Long gone are the days of drinking naturally pure water from flowing rivers and streams. It is already common today for people to use bottled water or home water filtration systems for their drinking water. How have we come to such a predicament, and what can be done about it? Continuing pollution, ever-increasing population and industrial demands, destruction of the rainforests, and overpumping of the ground water are all responsible for the deterioration of water quality. But the underlying reason, as William E. Marks shows in this wide-ranging, thoughtful book, is a lack of understanding of and respect for the nature of water itself.

Marks covers such diverse topics as water's role in the origin of the universe and of life, cosmic rain and water in interstellar space, water in the myths of various peoples and religious traditions, the power of water in the many forms it takes in the natural world, vortex energy and living water, water and the human body, water healing, and a history of water pollution. He offers hope for the future by discussing the work of such visionaries as Theodor Schwenk and Viktor Schauberger. Marks shows us that finally water can only be understood when it is seen as the mediator not only between life and death but also between the physical world and the spiritual world.

Sacred Water: The Spiritual Source of Life by Nathaniel Altman

Drawing from a variety of religious teachings, anthropological evidence, and myths and legends of the world's cultures and religions, the author shows the vital role water plays in all aspects of our spiritual lives, as an element of sustenance, cleansing, initiation, healing, gaining wisdom, and enchantment, inviting readers to reclaim their inner connection to the sacredness of water, and inspiring them to appreciate, honor, and protect the waters of the world.

Water, Pure and Simple: The Infinite Wisdom of an Extraordinary Molecule by Dr Paolo Consigli

There is no more important substance on earth than water: it is the source of life, one of the four classic elements and makes up over 70% of our bodies and our planet. This new book allows us to discover and understand more about this most common of molecules

Water: The Element of Life First Edition by Theodor Schwenk and Wolfram Schwenk

Water's flow constantly links life and death. It is the mediator between the two, and its surface provides a common frontier in nature where they meet. Death is continuously being overcome there." It is the living movement of water that makes life on earth possible. Based on spiritual science and on their own numerous experiments, Theodor and Wolfram Schwenk show that earth is a living organism and that water is its sense organ, which perceives vital cosmic influences and transmitting them to earthly life. The authors' approach to the current water and environmental crises goes beyond problem-oriented and piecemeal band-aid solutions; it suggests that we need a new and radical understanding of water, a revolutionary consciousness that we must reach if the earth is to remain alive. This pioneering classic on water is back in print and more relevant than ever before.

Sensitive Chaos: Creation of Flowing Forms in Water and Air 

Theodor Schwenk  

ISBN-13: 978-0854403042   ISBN-10: 0854403043

Translated by Olive Whicher & Johanna Weigley

More than ever before, today we need "water consciousness" and we can begin with this essential and classic book on water as the universal bearer of living, formative processes.

Beginning with simple flowing phenomena of water and air, Schwenk gradually builds up, with the help of marvelous photographs and drawings, the "letters" of an alphabet that will allow us to "read" the living meaning of water.

The spiritual, formative processes are gradually brought to light, and we come to recognize the Creative Word in the universe.


Understanding Water: Developments from the Work of Theodor Schwenk 2005 by Andreas Wilkens

Throughout the ages, people have experienced the life-giving and healing forces in water. Water is integral to life, and surrounds us in nature and in our own bodies. But not all water is the same. Water can carry good energies, and bad energies. How can we understand water enough to know the difference? Theodor Schwenk, the renowned author of Sensitive Chaos, founded an institute for water research in the Black Forest in Germany. He developed the Drop Picture Method, which displays the characteristics of water clearly for the non-specialist. Today, the Institute continues his work and here presents momentous findings about the quality of our drinking water, groundwater, spring water and river water. Stunningly illustrated in colour, this book offers a unique insight into the world of water.

Flowforms: The Rhythmic Power of Water (Rythmic Power of Water) 1st Edition by A. John Wilkes

ISBN-13: 978-0863153921       ISBN-10: 0863153925

What is the true nature of water and does it have memory? -- By working with the rhythm and flow of water, can we increase its life-giving power? Water is not only fundamental to life but is essential for the cycles and changes in nature. John Wilkes argues as well that water is the universal bearer of whatever character we put into it. For this reason the way we treat water is of crucial importance to our health, and to the well-being of our planet. Working with his remarkable invention, the Flowform, Wilkes has uncovered hidden secrets of the world of water, and at the same time created an artform of great beauty. His lifetime of applied research into rhythms and water, fully revealed in this book for the first time, has startling implications for such topical issues as farming and irrigation; food production and processing; water treatment and recycling; and health and cosmetic products. This ground-breaking book is lavishly illustrated to show both the beauty of the Flowform and the wide range of its applications.

Double Helix Water - Has the 200-year-old mystery of homeopathy been solved? Mass Market Paperback – December 3, 2009 by David L Gann and Professor Shui-Yin Lo PhD

Gann and his particle physicist research partner Lo, have presented their groundbreaking research into an undiscovered molecular phase of water in an easy to read summary. With their Genesis Phase of water, they claim they have uncovered the underlying mechanism of how water forms a solid particle at room temperature and thereby explain many of the mysteries of alternative health practices. Research into the atomic level of the water molecule complete with photos is presented in a simplified and understandable manner leading, the reader through miles of physical and chemical jungles effortlessly. Tackling head-on the raging battle between Allopathic and Homeopathic Medicine, Gann and Lo s research sheds light on both sides of this 50 year conflict. Laboratory experiments are explained in layman s terms thereby allowing a person with no physics background to understand the mechanism underlying Homeopathy. Their research into the water molecule is a fascinating read explaining the mysteries of Homeopathy but even more may be the needed paradigm shift ushering in a new age of an inexpensive, safe and truly workable healthcare system.

Dr. Lo has published over 75 scientific papers in internationally recognized physics journals during his 40-year distinguished career as well as authored over 60 US and world patents in the field of atomic and subatomic particles.

In conjunction with Caltech Pasadena and UCLA, Dr. Lo was the Senior Scientist that led a team of world renown colleagues, including the holder of the John Dawson Award for Excellence in Plasma Physics Research, UCLA Professor Alfred Wong, and world-renowned Field Medalist in Mathematics, Professor S.T. Yau, of Harvard University, in the proof of concept of a revolutionary high-energy beam with multiple communications and energy applications. This beam, the Baser , of which Dr. Lo is the inventor and patent holder, produces a high-energy beam of enlarged particle clusters thousands of times more powerful than the world s most powerful laser. The US Department of Energy, Office of Technology Development, as well as Los Alamos National Laboratory collaborated with this research. In 2005 the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Roy Glauber at Harvard for the theoretical calculations of optical coherence which was the basis for Dr. Lo s invention of the Baser.

Meridians and Stable Water Clusters: Physics and Health :A Picture Book Paperback – January 24, 2013 by Professor Shui-Yin Lo PhD

With thousands of years history and your own experience in using or benefiting from meridian-based medical practices, you many not feel that you need physical proof of the existence of meridian lines and points. However, it is the lack of visual proof that has kept the Western health community, including the insurance companies, from fully accepting the practices of the East like acupuncture and acupressure. Those who understand meridian theory know that it is not just the ability to help heal that is important in Eastern practice, but the focus on health maintenance through maintaining the flow of energy throughout the body. There are many people trying to establish the proof of meridian theory and this book contributes to this goal by presenting a sample of the work of Dr. Shui Yin Lo, who uses infrared photography in his research and has discovered its ability to reveal easily the 14 major meridians in Eastern meridian theory. We all know that we need a more efficient and cost effect approach to medical care and this book will provide a major steppingstone towards that goal.

Shui-yin Lo PhD - Dr. Lo received his Bachelor of Science in Physics from the University of Illinois in 1962 with highest honors and his PhD in Physics from the University of Chicago in 1966 under the theory group lead by (2008) Physics Nobel recipient Yoichiro Nambu. (Dr. Nambu is considered as one of the leading figures in the development of modern particle physics.)

Dr. Lo s academic career spans the globe as a visiting faculty member and lecturer at leading institutions throughout the world including: California Institute of Technology; Academy of Science, Beijing, China; Stanford Accelerated Center, California; Institute of Theoretical Physics, and State University of New York, Stony Brook, New York. Dr. Lo was Senior Lecturer (1977-1986), Tenured Lecturer (1975-1977), and Fixed Term Lecturer(1972-1975), at the University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Living Rainbow H2O 1st Edition 2012 by Mae-Wan Ho

ISBN-13: 978-9814390897     ISBN-10: 9814390895

This book is a unique synthesis of the latest findings in the quantum physics and chemistry of water that will tell you why it is so remarkably fit for life. It offers a novel panoramic perspective of cell biology based on water as "means, medium, and message" of life.

This book is a sequel to The Rainbow and The Worm, The Physics of Organisms, which has remained in a class of its own for nearly 20 years since the publication of the first edition. Living Rainbow H2 o continues the fascinating journey in the author's quest for the meaning of life, in science and beyond. Like The Rainbow and The Worm, the present book will appeal to readers in the arts and humanities as well as scientists; not least because the author herself is an occasional artist and poet. Great care has been taken to explain terms and concepts for the benefit of the general reader. At the same time, sufficient scientific details are provided in text boxes for the advanced reader and researcher without interrupting the main story.

What is Life is the title of a famous book of Erwin Schrödinger. In1944 he reasoned that the living cell is in a state of low entropy or in a state of high dynamic order. 70 years later the answer to Schrödinger's conjecture can be found in Ling's book. The suspected order of living matter could be proved by strictly following the guiding rules of the Scientific Method: Phenomena are explained by an assumed model or hypothesis that can explain observations, that can be experimentally tested and either verified or if falsified replaced by a more adequate model. In the middle of the last century a standard model of a living cell - seen as the basic unit of life - survived preceding controversial attempts to understand a puzzling life phenomenon: Cells live in water with low potassium and high sodium and contain high potassium and low sodium. This phenomenon is explained in the standard model of the winning membrane pump theory (MPT) as follows: Living cells are membrane-enclosed sacs of watery solutions comprising ordinary liquid water, fully dissociated ions and proteins. Transport processes mediated by energy consuming membrane pumps explain the puzzling behavior of sodium and potassium. Ling's deviation from the scientific main stream began with the falsification of the pump concept by demonstrating that the cell fails by far to command the energy needed for operating the postulated pump. Consequently new models were mandatory. Model constructing and experimental testing of over half a century saw the birth, the growth and the completion of a self-consistent unified theory of living matter called Association Induction Hypothesis (AIH). Features of living matter were modeled by applying physicochemical laws known to govern the interaction between components of dead matter. Proteins - identified as the principal players of life - are described as electronic machines whose life-specific dynamic structure determines through induction their life-specific association with water dipoles and ions. Verified theories describe the molecular adsorption mechanism responsible for selective ion accumulation in living cells (e.g. potassium), the molecular mechanism for selective partial exclusion of ions and macromolecules (e.g. sodium, calcium, sugars) from cell water dynamically structured in multilayers, and describe how the dynamic structure and function of proteins is regulated by adsorption and desorption of so-called cardinal adsorbents (e.g. ATP). The smallest unit of life is identified as a microscopic assembly of water molecules, protein, and ions in which the described molecular mechanisms are at work. This coherently acting assembly is called Nano-protoplasm. The resting living state is characterized by near total association (high order: low entropy) among all their components, the transient active living state is characterized by reversible liberation of ions and water molecules (less order: high entropy) from the protein. Aggregates of such smallest units of life are the building blocs for all living structures of living organisms including living cytoplasm and membrane systems of living cells. Knowing the features of the smallest unit of life allows explaining life phenomena of the corresponding bigger living structure. Those perceptions provide the basis for understanding life phenomena at another level still higher (subcellular organelle - cell - organ - individual organism) until all life phenomena - even social life of insects or of humans - will be explained. Examples for describing cell physiological phenomena by the theories of molecular mechanisms of the respective units of Nano-protoplasm are documented in the book and in cited references. In particular worth mentioning is the verification of the theory of partial sodium exclusion and its modulation from Nano-protoplasmic water by using a concocted ultra simple model.
Successful conclusion: Life and Life Phenomena of the living world can be described and understood by a Physical Theory that is in harmony with the same physical laws that govern the non-living world.

People with good educational background as well as students and teachers of life sciences may be amazed about not being informed about Ling's verified physical theory of the living state and its major impact on historical inventions such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The book What is Life Answered with its references is a treasure trove of documents that show how and why falsified hypotheses and theories have been survived and determined the direction of Science.

What Is Life Answered in terms of the properties and activities of microscopic assemblies of molecules, atoms, ions and electrons called nano-protoplasm. Paperback – Unabridged, 2013 by Gilbert N. Ling

Gilbert N. Ling (b. Dec 26 1919, Nanking, China; US citizen) is a cell physiologist, Biochemist and scientific investigator and author of five books relating to his revolutionary Association Induction Hypothesis. His most recent book published in 2014 is entitled What is Life Answered?

Ling, during 50 years of research from 1946, has carried out numerous scientific experiments that attempt to disprove the view of the cell as a membrane containing a number of pumps such as the sodium potassium pump and the calcium pump and channels that engage in active transport.

In 1962 he introduced the Association Induction Hypothesis (AIH), a unifying, general theory of the living cell, an alternative hypothesis to the Membrane and Membrane pump theories and three years later added the Polarized-oriented multilayer theory of cell water which contributed to the development of MRI Cancer Imaging.

In 1944 he won the biology slot of the sixth Boxer Indemnity Scholarship, a nationwide competitive examination that allowed Chinese science and engineering students full scholarship to study in a United States University. In 1947 he co-developed the Gerard-Graham-Ling microelectrode, a device that allows scientists to more accurately measure the electrical potentials of living cells.

Review of above book by Vladimir MatveeMarch 26, 2014

The answers to the question of "what is life" are based on the unified physical theory of the living cell created by Dr. G. Ling half century ago. Archimedes once said: "Give me a fulcrum and I shall move the world." Dr. Ling has found the fulcrum to move the world of cell physiology. It is adsorption properties of proteins. Indeed, Dr. Ling explained fundamental physical properties of the living cell basing only on protein ability to adsorb water, ions and other solutes by their molecular surface. Ling's theory, as a good physical theory, explains of great number of facts starting from a modest amount of initial principles (similar to how few Newton's laws explain physical world at large from properties of a dirty stone up to the beautiful Universe). Ling's theory contradicts many "truths" that we know from our school time. This book is delicacy for a person who loves exploring the contradictions. If no one contradicted Ptolemy, we still lived in the center of the Universe.

‘Dancing with Water-The New Science of Water’ by
Each of the Earth’s minerals has a crystalline form. Diamonds are crystalline carbon; emeralds are crystalline beryllium; and rubies are crystalline corundum. The difference between corundum and a ruby is the way the molecules are organized or structured (see images of corundum and ruby at right). Each crystal has a specific structural pattern. Minerals form crystals when circumstances (for example: heat and/or pressure) cause the molecules to form a repeating pattern. Most people know that extreme pressure is required to form a diamond. Pressure forces molecules to arrange themselves in a different configuration to withstand the pressure. Structural organization changes the characteristics of the substance. Some of these changes are obvious—like the visible difference between carbon and a diamond. It’s all a matter of organization.
Water, too, has a crystalline form—ice.  Yet research reveals that water also has a liquid crystalline form. Although the molecules remain mobile in liquid crystalline water, they move together, like a school of fish swimming in the sea. This is structured water—also referred to as organized water, hexagonal water, and liquid crystalline water.
Liquid crystals are a special phase of matter. Like solid crystals, they can transmit signals; the repeating pattern provides an efficient pathway for the smooth flow of energetic information. Liquid crystals are flexible and many times more responsive than solid crystals.
Dr. Gerald Pollack, professor of bioengineering at the University of Washington has provided significant evidence for water’s liquid crystalline structure. His research has demonstrated water’s capacity to form large zones of structured water. He has shown that this water has measurably different characteristics including: molecular stability, a negative electrical charge, greater viscosity, molecular alignment, and an enhanced ability to absorb certain spectra of light. He and others have provided evidence that the liquid crystalline phase of water is intimately connected with the generation of life. Dr. Pollack discusses his research in a recent lecture.
Much of the water in a healthy human body is in a liquid crystalline/structured state. Many components of the body are also considered to be liquid crystals, including collagen and cell membranes. These tissues work cooperatively with structured water to create an informational network that reaches to every cell. The liquid crystalline organization of the human body accounts for the instantaneous transfer of signals and other biological information.
Healthy DNA is surrounded by structured water. This water is responsible for the DNA’s stability. Structured water is also responsible for supporting the electromagnetic field surrounding DNA. As water loses its crystalline structure (because of age and disease), the integrity of the DNA is often compromised.  Youthful DNA, surrounded by crystalline/structured water, has a much stronger electromagnetic field than DNA from older individuals.
Water’s crystalline structure is based on tetrahedral geometry where oxygen atoms form the center of each tetrahedron.  Under ideal circumstances, as water tetrahedra join together, a repeating hexagonal pattern is generated with oxygen atoms forming the vertices of each hexagon. This is the reason liquid crystalline water has also been referred to as hexagonal water.
Quartz crystals exhibit the same molecular geometry as structured water. Quartz is a network of interconnected SiO4 tetrahedra. Structured water is a network of OH4 tetrahedra. This is one reason water has the capacity to store and transfer information. The image to the right shows the geometric pattern in quartz.  It identifies thetetrahedral arrangement as well as the hexagonal channels created by the repeating geometry.
Hydrogen bonding
Water’s liquid crystalline structure is made possible, in part, by electrostatic forces called hydrogen bonds. Hydrogen bonds are formed by the attraction of positive and negative charges. In the water molecule, the oxygen atom maintains a slightly negative charge while the hydrogen atoms maintain a slightly positive charge. These charges attract each other and link water molecules to form an interconnected, crystalline network.

The positively-charged hydrogen atom is electrostatically attracted to the negatively-charged oxygen atom to form a hydrogen bond. This is the foundation for the development of the liquid crystalline water matrix.
Hydrogen bonding in most water is random. There is no long-term pattern to the way the water molecules become interconnected. However, many natural forces can influence the degree and the stability of hydrogen bonding. The electromagnetic forces inherent in the Earth play a role. Organization itself provides a degree of stability, similar to the way interlocking bricks create a sturdy framework, so that hydrogen bonds are not as easily broken. A structured water network is said to be coherent when it can maintain a degree of molecular stability while in motion.
Water can form many structural patterns depending on its vibrational environment. When there is a high degree of hydrogen bonding (no matter the pattern) then water behaves differently and takes on different characteristics. Water’s capacity to store and to transmit information is directly proportional to structure and coherence. The greater the structure (characterized by increased hydrogen bonding), and the greater the coherence(characterized by the degree to which the water can maintain its structure), the greater its capacity to store and deliver signals and other information.
Liquid crystalline/structured water is living water—and it is only the beginning.
