Viktor Schauberger, known as the water wizard, was critical of modern science for many reasons. At the heart of his concern was the mechanistic approach to life that modern science has taken.
Schauberger was right. Modern science and philosophy have attempted to describe natural processes using a linear approach—a series of events—as though life itself were a machine. Events are broken into tiny parts as whole fields of study develop around a portion of each larger process. Scientists can spend an entire lifetime with no comprehension of the big picture. Consequently, an organism is never viewed as a whole—nor is it viewed as a part of the even bigger Web of Life.
Genetic manipulation is a prime example of this mechanistic approach. Although scientists may understand how to remove and to replace genes (as though they were computer chips), genetic manipulation has consequences. Like so many forms of mechanization, genetic modification is an attempt to manipulate and to control Nature. It supports greed, rather than a creative system with a greater purpose. Today, computers and computerized machines practically run our world. Yet, as powerful as our technology has become, it has crippled us in many ways, and it has disconnected us from the Earth. Nature is not a giant machine churning out the same result over and over again. Because Nature works in cycles (see Chapter 2 of Dancing with Water), upgrades are infused with each cycle and as long as circumstances are favorable, life evolves in an orderly fashion.
Life is a symphony composed and played in the moment—impossible to mechanize no matter how sophisticated the technology.
Natural technology emulates Nature. It takes into consideration everything we have learned from our machines and our mechanization and then weaves Nature back into the picture. Where water is concerned, natural purification technologies take gravity into account and they consider the way water slowly percolates through multi-layers of rock and soil in the Earth. When it comes to revitalizing water, flow forms like the WaterFall (shown below) and egg-shaped containers, like the Water Cradle (also bellow) are a wonderful substitute for the machines that zap and electrocute water to obtain desired results. These natural methods take into consideration water’s requirement for spiral movement, and they acknowledge the need for a dark and cool environment in which water can “mature.” Natural imprinting (the addition of “information” as vibrations and beneficial frequencies from Earthly or Celestial sources) has many unrecognized benefits that can go far beyond man-made technology; it is what water is always seeking.
Although we are beginning to understand water’s need for the natural approach, we are still tempted to use it as a machine—manipulating it without thought for its life force. On the other hand, when we have thoughts and feelings of gratitude and love, water is much more responsive to us and we are more responsive to water because we respect the life within it. This is a deeper level of the dance with water that we are still learning.
While there are many good technologies for treating and revitalizing water (some of them machines), the authors of Dancing with Water have found that simple is usually better. They believe that even the best of the machines will eventually give way to more natural technologies that allow water the freedom to respond in the dance as an equal partner. The authors invite you to join them in remembering the “Dance with Water.”
