He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.
-- Cecil F. Alexander 1848
 

If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.


LORAN EISELY, The Immense Journey, 1957

Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one, but there is also a third thing, that makes water and nobody knows what that is.

D.H. LAWRENCE (1885-1930), Pansies, 1929

All the water that will ever be is, right now.


National Geographic, October 1993

Between earth and earth's atmosphere, the amount of water remains constant; there is never a drop more, never a drop less. This is a story of circular infinity, of a planet birthing itself.


LINDA HOGAN, Northern Lights, Autumn 1990


Living Waters


 

Welcome to Living Waters, a web page dedicated to all things water-related in our time.

The purpose of our work is to raise the awareness levels of all people and organizations wise enough to recognize there is indeed a problem - many problems - with the ways big business, governments, and local municipalities manage the Earth's most precious resource - OUR WATER. 

If you want to further evaluate that statement, read the below story of Viktor Schauberger, an Earth Caretaker from 1885 - 1958.  His assertion is that everything we've done to date with water management has been basically wrong.  He cites the many imbalances in our natural world as evidence, from the impotence of our soils without commercial chemicals, to his contention we are drinking and otherwise using "dead water."   

The 21st century's opening with wilder and wilder weather, increased earthquake activity, greater numbers of natural calamities, and the general feeling held by mostly everyone that "SOMETHING IS WRONG!"  Things are out of balance in Nature.     

We need to find solutions that are in harmony with Nature rather than accepting policies and practices bent on controlling or trying to improve upon that which is already sacred and perfect.


Join the conversation.

Viktor Schauberger 1885-1958

Man's degradation of the environment 

 

Viktor Schauberger's environment - troubled him his entire life. In all his work, he fought for water, forest, and soil. In his inimitable way, he used the "Sacred

Geometry/Biology" found in macrocosm and microcosm in the natural world to make his contributions to the world.

 

"Viktor was a well-read but formally uneducated man who lived the greater portion of his life observing and learning from nature. His insights and applications are so beautiful in their simplicity and in their application so harmonious with nature that his work and ideas deserve far greater recognition. In fact our planet is crying out for inventions based on Bio-technology such as Schauberger's to become the norm of our industrial economy." (Denise Turner,http://lightnet.co.uk/frontier/viktor.htm )

 

Unfortunately, the power of money and greed triumphed to the end of Viktor's life. But Viktor's story is not yet completely written! Others of like mind have taken up his causes and are bringing them back into the mainstream. This time, perhaps Viktor will have his say, hopefully before man completely ravages the Earth and its Waters.

 

Viktor Schauberger was in the 1800's a fourth generation forester in Germany, from a family of aristocratic means. He loved Nature and the Forest deeply, reverently.

 

His entire life was spent playing in, working with, and learning from Nature. His reverence for the forests and streams and understanding of Nature's balanced ways to regulate life on Earth pushed him to devote his entire life to learning about and teaching others how it SHOULD be done, thoughtfully, in sync with Nature. He desperately wanted to share what he'd learned about energy with a world positioned to suck the life blood from the Earth in its quest for satiating the industrialists' needs to provide light, heat, transportation, factories, communications services, food, shelter, and all those things that contributed to greater comforts in modern life.

 

Viktor knew how to work with the Earth to make the best use of Nature's resources. The principle that guided him throughout his life was "Kapieren und Kopieren", or "first to understand Nature, and then copy it." He believed Nature was our foremost teacher. He stood almost alone during the Industrial Age, believing the task of technology is not to correct Nature, but to imitate it. To be able to imitate water's energy, we need to first understand it is alive.

Viktor Shauberger's
Learnings and Warnings  


[From the book Living Water - Viktor  

Schauberger and the Secrets of Natural  

Energy, by Olof Alexandersson]

 

 

Learnings

 

Carbonates can be found in all springs.  In Nature's carbon cycle, deeply drained  water from rain is heated by the Earth,  causing pressure upwards from the water  table as oxygen and hydrogen's decoupling  create gas needed to gradually push water  to the surface, raising vital minerals and  carbon with it. The minerals and mature  water are then available for agriculture  and life above ground.  

 

Victor Schauberger believed that man's interference with Nature's cycle of pumping  water from the ground prematurely after  springs die, yields "immature water, unfit  to drink by humans, animals, and plants.  This "mineral-depleted water" never gets  the chance to pass through the soil and rock  layers where vital minerals attach to it.  

 

Viktor believed immature water does not  carry with it the salts and minerals which  give it strength and vitality and in fact, have  a leaching effect, draining the surrounding  organisms of minerals.  

 

Man's use of subterranean water runs the  risk of exhausting the earth's reserves of  immature water, but more importantly,  life above ground is denied the essences  of mature water needed for healthy growth  and development. Further cutting of the  

forests cause their storing and cooling  effects to be lost.  

 

More interference in the form of unnaturally straightening rivers for industrial purposes destroys the rainwater storage mechanisms  for water caused by meandering streams. 

Straightening or diverting rivers ultimately  leads to concrete damming and dredging of  the waterways.

 

 [Viktor's alternative methods  of maintaining the flow of waterways are  found on pages 47-48, Living Water by Olof Alexandersson.]

 

What is the mechanism of control for carbon in our water supply? The mineral salts of  course.  Why else would it be the minerals reacting with the carbon to create things like

calcium carbonate if that was not the case?   Ionic sulfate  minerals cause carbon levels in  water to decrease.  

 

 

Warnings

 

Schauberger's Criticism of Science.  

 

"The present civilization is the work of man,  who has built up in his own autocratic way a superficial world which threatens to destroy him. He should be master of the world, but  due to his behavior and activities, he has destroyed Nature's unity and order. There  is a growing conviction, as we stand confronted by our own creations, that they  will destroy us; we cannot see what direction to take towards a better life, as each step  seems to lead inexorably towards a worse one.  

 

"The only way left is to return to Nature. Man is created from Nature, and is therefore dependent on Nature's laws.  Man has created his own pseudo-culture in which, as time has passed, Nature's influence has become meaningless  and irrelevant, because of the enormous power  of the technical resources in man's power, and which threaten to usurp the natural forces. This technical monster has already harmed Nature's vital processes. . .

 

"The power behind this is our intellect and the senseless progress of technology and lawless culture it has created, which has brought about  the interruption of the natural flow of water in the earth. All that has been created by the mechanistic civilization will finally collapse as  the tempo of change increases. It will not be  just a temporary crisis, but will lead to a permanent break-up of culture built like a tower on sand. Unfortunately what was true in the culture will also be swept away."   (pp. 112-113 ibid)  

 

 

Schauberger's Criticism of Society.  

 
 

"The reason why man's cultural and economic decline is punctuated by transitory crises is due to his spiritual decay, which inevitably follows each stage of bodily decline. Civilized man, despite his supposedly high technical culture, has reached such depravity, that he is no longer able to recognize this physical and moral decline as being in fact a continuous and progressive cultural decline.  

 

"Those who can see the mistakes of the past  must not be seduced by the comforts of the present materialistic life; the only way to find the solution to our problems is to expose, for all our worth, the attitudes which have been responsible for our present predicament.


"
The best way is to shout from the rooftops when we hear the wrong counsel being given.    All members of society, the poor and the rich,  the high and the low, must be made aware of doubtful claims and misrepresentations, which  are becoming more and more evident. . . .

While it may be unpopular to warn of impending danger, the attempt should be made whether it is a case of not knowing or not wishing to know." (pp.113-114) ibid)

More than one-half of the world's major rivers are being seriously depleted and polluted, degrading and poisoning the surrounding ecosystems, thus threatening the health and livelihood of people who depend upon them for irrigation, drinking and industrial water


Ismail Serageldin, Chairman of the World Commission on Water for the 21st Century- Water Forum, Netherlands, November 30, 1999

Life originated in the sea, and about eighty percent of it is still there.


ISAAC ASIMOV, Isaac Asimov's Book of Science and Nature Quotations, 1988

The oceans are the planet's last great living wilderness, man's only remaining frontier on earth, and perhaps his last chance to produce himself a rational species.
