This following confines the presentation at the 1st International Symposium on Non-Conventional Energy Technology held in Toronto in 1981. At that time I emphasized the implosion theory and some advances made by the Austrian scientist Viktor Schauberger. Now I am focusing on one of his designs - a water cleansing device, which has since been successfully developed.

When Viktor Schauberger died in 1958, at the age of 73, it was after a bitter fight against his contemporary scientific community. His ideas about the structure and function of nature were seen as controversial and difficult to comprehend. He advanced new ideas and theories about the essence of water, about plants, about agriculture and forestry and about the energy supply. Yet his ideas did not die with him; interest in his theories is spreading.

Literature about Schauberger's inventions and theories is now available. In my opinion, the best guide is Bertil Gustavsson's book "Connections between the Implosion Theory and the classic sciences". Unfortunately, this book is in Swedish only. Another book, in German, is "Die Geniale Bewegungskraft" (The genious force of moving), by Schauberger's friend and collaborator Aloys Kokaly, who is also editor of "Kosmische Evolution". This periodical gives firsthand information of natural biological processes observed by Schauberger. Still another recommended book is written by his friend, Olof Alexandersson: "Living Water", Turnstone Press, 1982. Finally, the German periodical "Mensch und Technik - Naturgemass", has a special issue on Viktor and Walter Schauberger (issue H4, 1982, written by Harthun, Fischer, Neumann and Wieseke).

Schauberger noted that everything in nature has bipolarity: light and darkness; warm and cold; male and female; pressure and draw, etc.. Between these opposites exists a constant flow of elevating qualities running from the lower to the higher one in a logarithmically spiralling movement. There are two spiralling movements: one outward-going sucking energy away from the centrum in excentric centrifugence, and one inward-going which presses energy in a concentric centripetence towards the condensed centrum.


Movements


Natural modes of motions

The core philosophy of Schauberger could be expressed as follows: The force is life, and the secret of life is bipolarity. Without opposite poles in nature, there is no attraction and repulsion, there is no movement. Without movement, there is no life.

Each movement has its characteristic qualities: The outgoing movement is followed by an increased friction and increased pressure with a rise of temperature, biological breakdown and decomposition. It is characterized by the processes of explosion, expansion and gravitation. The in-going movement is followed by a decreased friction, decreased pressure combined with decreased temperature and biological improvement. The corresponding processes are implosion, impansion and levitation.

Even when the two movements are naturally balanced as two opposing forces of equal strength, the inwards-going concentric spiral dominates in its reconstructive role.

The spiral movement may turn either counter-clockwise or clockwise. When the motion spirals counterclockwise, it has a structuring and formative influence on material flowing (fluid or gas) in the implosion spiral. If it turns the opposite way around, its function is decomposing and disintegrative. The greatest vitalization is obtained when both spirals move inside each other. Such resultant or double concentric spiral movement is called the implosion spiral and constitutes the essence of Schauberger's implosion theory.

Schauberger used this theory to explain certain natural phenomena such as typhoons, whirlpools, certain shell forms, the meandering of waters, and new forms of energy generators (including his levitating implosion disk).

The water cleansing device

The water-cleansing device is based on the implosion process. Figure 2 shows the concept presented in the 1981 Toronto symposium. Water runs from the left into an egg-shaped copper bowl through small nozzles in a spiralling copper tube. The nozzles rotate the water beams and the spiral-wrenched copper tube causes the whole amount of water to start a spiralling whirl, which spins in the bowl and down through the outlet tube. Experiments showed that impurities such as iron fillings were pressed together into small balls in the center of the tube by the impansion force. Figure 3 shows the copper spiral tube used in the prototypes. Unfortunately, this type of spiral tube could not give sufficient water velocity in the vortex.


Figure 3.

Figure 4 shows a similar product which is made of copper. This is dangerous if such an appliance is operating continuously. Impurities in water may combine with copper and develop toxic byproducts.


Figure 4.

Figure 5 shows the current water cleansing device, now in production. One of the participants in our research group is Irma Hoyrup. She visualized a golden pear-shaped water-cleansing device viewed externally as well as internally. In our device, water is sprayed into a golden pear-shaped bowl, and forms a counter-clockwise spiralling rotation, the implosion movement, around an electrode in a conical golden tube. This water undergoes the changes pointed out by Schauberger: namely a reduced temperature and an increased vitality. Treated water is still spiralling when it leaves the device, as can be shown in photography at shutter speeds of 1/1000 of second.


Figure 5.

The mechanical energy for the vitalizing process is supplied by the water tap pressure. The normal working range is a pressure of 3-7 bar, which corresponds approximately to 15-40 litres of water per minute, an advantage over other water-cleansing devices on the market. In the centre of the golden bowl there is an electrode made of layers of copper, silver and gold. This electrode is soldered to the bowl in order to give a good electric connection. The electrical energy for the cleansing function is directly tapped from the whirling water. The faster the implosion whirl is, the stronger is the electric current through the spiralling water in the implosion centre around the structuring electrode. Measurements carried out on water containing average pollution levels show a 140 mV potential between the negative copper/silver/gold electrode and the positive copper/gold bowl. The electrical potential depends on the rotational speed in the spiral and the current depends on the degree of pollution, reaching as high as a few milliampere in averagely polluted water. Bacteria and virus are effectively killed with this arrangement. Moreover, all the inner surfaces of the device are gold-plated, and therefore are chemically inert. The silver electrode's surface is treated to maximize the active area. As the water turbulence is broken up by the granulated silver surface, microscopic air bubbles are formed in the implosion spiral. This mechanical treatment causes the lime in the water to decompose into carbon dioxide and released in the air, and calcium carbonate, which crystallizes into aragonite crystals, which do not precipitate as lime.

Finally, the water-cleansing and water-vitalizing function depends on a special interaction between pure materials: gold, silver and copper, which are the constituent parts of the device. Such interaction between the gold and copper on the surface of a golden copper plate apparently was known by alchemists. Irma Hoyrup informed us about this layering process and the technique of how to properly fashion the golden copper bowl.

Test results

This device has no filter, no reverse osmosis membrane and there are no magnets attached. Water is pouring out at a rate of up to 50 litres per minute. But does it cleanse the water? In Denmark, traditional chemical and biological analyses are made by Stein's Laboratories, authorized by the Danish government. Figure 7 shows the certificate of an analysis of polluted lake water before and after passing through the device.


Certificate of an analysis.

The main function of the device is to kill bacteria. Colon and faeces bacillus are reduced to 15% of the originally very high numbers. Several biologists have confirmed that these results are unique, especially since there is no filter or semipermeable membrane in the device. Furthermore, the pH-value is increased from 7.3 to 7.5, or greater alkalinity.

Vitalised water

Viktor Schauberger stated that water could be "dead" or "alive". Water becomes dead after passing through kilometers of straight iron pipes. Such water loses biological effects and does not add support to living organisms. Living water may be found in wells and in unpolluted rivers with meandering flows. And, water spiralled through an implosion whirl is biologically active.

There exist several methods of measuring biological activity. More than 100 Kirlian photographs have been used by us to evaluate water before and after passing through the device. In Figure 8, the photo to the left shows the pretreated tap water.


Pretreated tap water.

The treated water has at least three important differences:

1) The blue belt of light around the treated water is broader than around the untreated water;

2) the sparks penetrating the blue belt of light are more indistinct or fuzzy in the tap water; and

3) the sparks are measured to be approximately 25% longer around the treated water

The little red circle in these photos indicates where the lead from the high-voltage source has touched the drop of water placed on the back of the film. The exposure is made with 10 short single sparks of 15 kilovolts from a piezoelectric crystal. When specialists on Kirlian photography are requested to interpret these results, they concur that the water has improved its biological quality. Such water appears to have been structured as the one treated by the method employed by Dr. Marcel Vogel.

The water has been tested by the Helix Centre for Liquid Flow Research in Odense. This research centre applies non-conventional methods, such as those developed by Dr. Rudolph Steiner and kinesiological muscle tests, which have been used in the following analyses. In Table 2, the left column indicates the ideal rating. Then comes the analysis with tap water, followed by reverse osmosis water and our device's. Water treated by our device parallels the ideal case rating.

The device appears to perform better than a reverse osmosis aggregate, which is the best commercial competitor. An analysis of hot tap water indicates that such water is so spoiled that it is impossible to regenerate it, even with our device.

Sprouting tests

A good way of testing biological vitality of water is to grow seeds in it. Different seed varieties have been used and the overall observation is that the sprouts from the seeds grown in treated water are somewhat stronger and thicker than sprouts grown in tap water. In Figure 9, the left photo shows beans grown five days in tap water. Notice the mould growths. Smell of putrefaction was pronounced. Beans grown in treated water have sprouts that are stronger and longer. There is no sign of mould and no bad smell.


Beans grown.

In treated water the seeds consume about 20% less water than when grown in tap water. These results are measured after 20 hours, at statistically significant levels (99.9%). It is possible that the seeds require less of the biologically active water to grow.

In a "Future Technology" gathering in Berlin, Dr. Hacheney from Dortmund, while presenting a paper on Kirlian photography of water, said: "We are living in a community where it is necessary to have a centralized supply of water, even though we know that the quality of tap water is not good for drinking. Therefore, we are forced to develop a device for water improvement which can be installed in the water supply at the consumers' end". Preliminary tests show that we really have got something special. Furthermore, it gives an excellent reduction of microorganisms.
