Mysterious water

The unique qualities of water have long been acknowledged. A 1992 article in Discover Magazine notes that water is too complicated to be discussed in books on simple liquids. Unlike other liquids, if flows faster under high pressure than under low pressure, and its solid form is lighter than its liquid form. While other liquids are generally aloof, water's oxygen and hydrogen atoms like to form bonds with practically anything. [1] It is a compound formed from two gases, yet is a liquid at normal temperatures and pressures. [2] Water is the only substance that can exist is all three states: solid, liquid, gas; it has the highest surface tension of all liquids; is a powerful solvent, and can defy gravity in capillary action. [3]


Martin Chaplin, Professor and  lab chief at the Department of Applied Science at London South Bank University, notes that at the molecular level, water creates the structure of DNA; it creates the structure of proteins. Without water, there would be no DNA; there would be no protein; there would be no life. [4]


The Structure of Water

From its chemical structure, water ought to be stiff and syrupy, more like a gel than a liquid. One explanation is that six molecules jostle  to occupy five molecule water clusters by sharing of a hydrogen bond. A shared bond becomes weakened and unstable, so that an intruding molecule can eventually push out another. Clusters are therefore continuously rearranging themselves in a microscopic game of musical chairs that keeps liquid water flowing.[5]


Yet the story cannot be that simple.


Clusters of various numbers of water molecules have been found experimentally or predicted theoretically in various forms of water; in ice, in crystal lattices and in bulk liquid water.


According to the July 2005 issue of Science Magazine, the structure of water; that is, how many bonds each H2O molecule makes with its neighbor in forming clusters, is among the top 100 unsolved problems in science. [6]


The experimental observation of water clusters requires sophisticated spectroscopic tools. Research is important because the realization that water manifests itself as clusters rather than an isotropic collection may help explain many anomalous water characteristics such as its highly unusual density temperature dependence, [7] or possibly the memory of water.


According to the journal Homeopathy, published by Elsevier, [8] scientists from the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, the USA, and the UK present remarkably convergent views using entirely different methods, indicating that large-scale structural effects can not only occur in liquid water, but can increase with time.




The Memory of Water

The concept of the memory of water goes back to 1988 when the late Professor Jacques Benveniste published, in the international scientific journal Nature, claims that extremely high ‘ultramolecular’ dilutions of an antibody had effects in the human basophil degranulation test, a laboratory model of immune response. In other words, the diluted water ‘remembered’ the antibody long after it was gone. His findings were subsequently denounced as ‘pseudoscience’ [9] and yet, despite the negative impact this had at the time, the idea has not gone away. [10]


A consortium of four independent research laboratories in France, Italy, Belgium and Holland has confirmed Benveniste’s results. [11]


Professor Chaplin defines memory of water as the extent to which past events may influence the future behavior or properties of aqueous solutions, and notes that a number of mechanisms allow this. This definition allows trivial cause and effect mechanisms, such as  adding a solute, which results in a slow movement of the aqueous solution towards equilibrium.


Other mechanisms are more interesting: restructuring after exposure to infrared radiation persists for a day. Changes to the structure of water are reported to last for weeks following exposure to a resonant IRC (inductance, resistance, capacitance) electrical circuits.


Water does store and transmit information concerning solutes, by means of its hydrogen bonded network. Although individual molecules of water cannot retain memory of past hydrogen bonding, clusters of water molecules can. Water cluster size and lifetime depends on their physical and chemical environment. Clusters can continue forever, although with constant changing of the constituent water molecules. [12]


According to Lynn McTaggart, Giuliano Preparata and Emilio Del Giudice have demonstrated mathematically that when closely packed together, atoms and molecules exhibit a collective behavior, forming what they call "coherent domains." They demonstrated that water molecules create "coherent domains".


Immunologist Yolene Thomas reports that Preparata and Del Giudice proposed that these long range coherent domains, caused by quantum electrodynamics, (QED) gives highly diluted solutes laser like properties. [13] i.e., one property of laser light is that it is coherent.


Chaplin notes that nanoparticles and nanobubbles may cause large scale order, making the formation of large scale coherent domains possible. [14]


McTaggart states that these single wavelengths of clusters of water molecules appear to become "informed" in the presence of other molecules; that is, they tend to polarize around any charged molecule, storing and carrying its frequency so that it may be read at a distance. This would mean water is like a tape recorder, imprinting and carrying information whether the original molecule is still there or not. Shaking of the containers appears to speed up this process. [15] Thomas says: “when the field matches the kinetic of the reaction, the later becomes functional as the optimal field strength as for a radio receiver.”

[requires more investigation]


In Japan, physicist Kunio Yasue of the Research Institute for Information and Science, Notre Dame Seishin University in Okayama, also found that water molecules have some role to play in organizing discordant energy into coherent photons; a process called superradiance.. According to McTaggart, this suggests that water acts as the essential conductor of a molecules signature frequency . If Benveniste is right, water both sends and amplifies the signals. [16]


Dr. Masura Emoto’a appearance in the movie What the Bleep, with his concept of “Messages in Water” popularized the concept that human thought has a direct observable effect on water, which is “remembered”. The observable effect for Emoto is the crystalline structure of ice crystals formed when water exposed to human emotion is frozen. Emoto found that ice crystals formed from water exposed to positive emotions were symmetric and aesthetically pleasing, while ice crystals formed from water exposed to negative emotions were unsymmetric and “ugly.” But are his claims supportable?  Kristopher Setchfield wrote a critique of Emoto’s experimental technique, and found it wanting. [17]


Alloise Gruber, of  Austria, supports Emoto’s hypothesis when he argues that we pollute water spiritually on a vast scale. Water absorbs all the negative emotion and stress of the places is has passed through.[18]

The Russian Konstantin Korotkov has developed Gaseous Discharge Visualization Bioelectrography. As noted in the ParadigmShiftNow paper Validation of the Human Energy Field, Korotkov and his GDV system have achieved a large following among medical and health science professionals. Korotkov has conducted many experiments on the effect of human emotions on water. People were asked to project positive and negative emotions on different flasks of water. The flasks were then analyzed. The lab concluded that love and positive emotions increased the energy levels of water, while fear, anxiety and hatred reduced the energy level. [19] There is a basis of credibility here. In his book, Measuring Energy Fields,  Korotkov notes that the results of his work on measurement of mental intentionality in water samples should be considered observations rather than strict experimental results, and that a protocol of double blind randomized results with strict controls is required. [20]

In any case, sources appear to confirm the effect of physical actions on water structure. Water transported long distances in pipes with angular turns is said to retain the effect of this transport. Leonid Izvekov, researcher Chief of Lab Water Structure Research, Russia, says water that flows into our homes through pipes may have various forms, but are all deformed; the crystals show no symmetry or beauty. This is specially true of water supplies in big cities, which is processed and recirculated. 


Historical anecdotes suggest our mental state (ie intention) can improve the quality of even chemically impure drinking water. If consumed with good thoughts and a sense of gratitude, it can be energized and refreshing.[21] The possible truth of these anecdotes have been supported by lab tests.  Alexander Solodilov [22] showed that crude oil, which is a mixture of oil and water, can be separated by application of an EM field having a strength comparable to the strength of the EM field of the human heart. [23]


Recently it has been discovered that “natural water”, because of its structure, is oxidized, or burning continuously,  meaning that it gives off heat and light. Vladimir Voeikov [24] states that water “burns” at the temperature of the local environment. The light emitted (photons) can be recorded using supersensitive instruments. [25]


Digital Biology

Beneviniste and his scientists continued to probe the phenomenon of the remembered antibody. They discovered that if secussion (agitation) is eliminated, the memory effect disappears. They also found that although solute molecules reacted to heat with distinctive heat sensitivity, the memory effect is inactive between 70 and 80 degrees C.  The presence of silica in solution, dissolved from the glass containing the solution, is also important for the memory effect. The effect is also removed by exposure of diluted solutions to magnetic fields.  it has been suggested that electromagnetic fields in some way mediate information processing in cell communication. At this point, Beneveniste hypothesized the memory effect was electromagnetic in nature, and that molecules could communicate via EM waves.


He wanted to find which molecular vibration modes are efficient, and how these modes themselves coud be used to mimic some of the biological function of a molecule without its physical presence.  Beneviniste   experimented with a devise that was essentially a standard audio amplifier connected to another coil to create an “audio frequency oscillator”.


Thomas notes that she worked with  Beneviniste between 1992 and 1996 to show that they could transfer molecular signals indirectly to water or directly to cells with this amplifier, giving rise to “digital biology”.  Continue top of page 4  [26]


Chaplin notes that in digital biology, specific molecular signals in the audio range (hypothetically the ‘beat’ frequencies of water’s  infrared and far infrared vibrations) may be heard, recorded, transmitted and amplified to similarly affect other water molecules at a receiver. He points out that ignoring the evidence for such phenomena is scientifically unsound. He also notes that as with the basic memory of water concept, experimental confirmation of the phenomena may not confirm the proposed mechanism.


He points out that EM emissions have been detected during the freezing of supercooled water due to Ionization effects, and suggests that similar effects may occur during changes in the structuring of liquid water.


He notes that although memory of water is considered by many to be the apparent physical result of macro quantum entanglement, he believes such a viewpoint lacks any mechanism for experimental testing. 



Structured water in the human body.

The collagenous liquid crystal mesophases in connective tissue combined with the associated structured water constitutes a semi-conducting highly responsive network that extends through out the organism. This network is directly linked to the intracellular matrices of individual cells, forming an excitable electric continuum for rapid intercommunication throughout the organism. [27]


Skepticism of “Memory of Water”

Chaplin notes that many scientists who deny the memory of water do not produce data showing no memory, but rather produce arguments why it cannot have memory, such as the ease with which hydrogen bonds between water molecules may be broken. What such arguments fail to acknowledge is that large populations of water molecules may retain behavior even if individual molecules are constantly changing. For example, water waves may retain a shape and travel long distances even though individual molecules are constantly changing position. It is also argued that water clusters cannot retain their organization longer than a fraction of a second. Evidence for this is generally based on computer modeling, NMR and diffraction data. Computer modeling is inadequate for predicting long term effects for a number of reasons, including short simulation time and poor fidelity. NMR and diffraction are incapable of detecting mobile structures where components may change, which is true in virtually all water samples. Often the final argument against the memory of water is “I don’t believe it”, a very unscientific argument.[28]


Shpalman, in a rather sophisticated looking skeptical blog states “there is no memory of water” [29] without even attempting to explore what the term means. In support of this statement he provides a footnote to an article in the journal Homeopathy; Can water possibly have a memory? A sceptical view[30] This article is only a skeptical view, not based on any research, and only states the fact that this idea is not compatible with our knowledge of pure water.


Shpalman then dismisses another article in the same journal, The ‘Memory of Water’: an almost deciphered enigma. Dissipative structures in extremely dilute aqueous solutions. This article is based on experimental research, which affirms the fact there is a difference between water before and after homeopathic procedures. [31]


The situation is analogous to dismissing the idea of a heliocentric system because it was not compatible with our knowledge of the universe in the sixteenth centuy.


Although shpalman provides largely correct information on a number of technical points, in my opinion he fails to refute anything.











water prepared by the procedures of homeopathic medicine (leading inexorably to systems without any molecule different from the solvent) results in water different from the initial water




Recent work on coherent water and “Ie” crystals by Dr Shui-Yin Lo of the American Technologies Group, published in Modern Physics Letters B 1996; 10: 909? shows that when a substance is dissolved in water, and subjected to repeated dilutions and shakings (as in homoeopathy), clusters of ice crystals form in the water. The crystals are the result of EM fields (I = ice, e = electromagnetic). [32]




The Structure of Water


Clayton Nolte: said to be a physicist, and developer of an “inline biophoton water structurer” says  “water structuring  is emulating nature” water in a mountain stream is structured by flowing in a natural environment. It has no memory and has a high life force energy. Ph balanced, etc. Structured water is natural water. It is perfect. Structured water is best for the body.







An analysis of the various contexts of the term “structured water”


Structured Water: Future of Medicine? 1/8


1956, southeast asia; secret lab for developing bioweapons. Scientists poisoned by pure water. 20 years later (1976), the hypothesis arose that water has memory. Experiments conducted around the world  shows that water receives and makes an imprint of any outside influence. Remembering everything in the space that surrounds it.

Ancients used silver vessels to turn ordinary water into healing water. Rustum Roy, Professor of the State University of Pennsylvania, and member of the International Academy of Science. says  this tye of water is the best antisceptic. US army uses water in silver containers to “kill germs” in wound (??) president if US uses water stored in silver container to keep germs of fof his hands. How can this be? The structure of the water is much more important than the chemical composition. (Structured water means how its molecules are organized. )The memory is in clusters of molecules. When turn on light, water may change, when turn on the electric power, the water may change. This is the direction of research.

Martin Chaplin, prof. lab chief of London U. great Britain: water molecules come and go rapidly within a cluster of molecules, but the cluster itself can survive for a long time.


Host: “The stability of water clusters has confirmed the hypothesis that these clusters are capable of recording and storing information.”


Roy: water is like a computer. The molecular structure is the alphabet of water. You must make a sentence out of water. [interpreted to mean, one must learn to read the molecular structure of water]

It is possible to structure water artificially. Seeds sprouted using artificially structured water had six times the bio-photon radiation levels  than seeds sprouted using control water (non-structured)


Wang Guihua, Agronomist of mthe Academy of Agronomical Science, china, says we have to say that using structureized water really does (positively) effect the growth of vegetables and fruits. Less water is needed  to grow the same amount of produce. Scienc and answer how this change in structure happens, but not why.

Alexander Solodilov:

Very small EM fields introduced into water has a profound effect on fish.

Nuclear testing (high levels of radioactivity) profoundly disturbs water, which if consumed, has a toxic effect.

Victor Inyushin, Head of the biophysics department of Kazakhstan University, Kazakhstan: the brain is 85% water. Radioactive water has a different structure than normal water. When the radioactive water is consumed, a conflict in the water structures in the brain leads to extreme disturbances.


In 2005, Russian Scientists set out to get  sample of water that has not been in the presence of human activity. According to the narrative, that location is in Venezuala.

Dominic Notter will then lead us in an eye-opening discussion about water for those who are ready for the new science and willing to think outside the 'box'. Dominic is an enthusiastic inventor and research scientist in the quantum realms. He has studied and worked alongside leading researchers in the fields of water restoration and programming, nutrition, energy and magnetism, fusion/fission and material transmutation, horticulture, and soil restoration as well as quantum physics. His humorous and down-to-earth approach to difficult subjects and challenges we currently face is refreshing and understandable.  

Dominic will speak about water's vibrational memory, enhancement possibilities, and its effects on health & well being. He will talk about some of the incredible break-throughs in structured water that he is making available to our community. Learn to look at water in a new way and understand how it can be used to hold memory and promote healing









“Structured water” is claimed to have significant therapeutic effects, and is now being marketed.
