Alternative Climate Influencing & Alternative Water Flow

The Oulanka expeditions 1980-82 and their relevance today
Lasse Johansson, Sweden

The Oulanka expeditions, by the Institute of Ecological Technology in Sweden, were planned as a series of expeditions in the early 1980s to verify or correct Viktor Schauberger's theories on water transport, water quality and hydrological processes – in field.
  Two expeditions, in 1980 and 1981, were carried out at Oulanka (a remote wilderness area in northern Finland) although more expeditions were planned. The expeditions produced detailed maps of the river flow axis of Oulanka Joki. Scouting data from feeders and rills tentatively indicated the existence positive and negative temperature movement and rotation of the flow axis in the sense of Viktor Schauberger.
  The expeditions’ research programme was very ambitious, although it turned out to be challenging to carry it out in field. Though many of the original questions were left unanswered, the expeditions are – even up to today – the only large scale attempt performed to systematically verify Schauberger’s perspective on water in untouched wilderness areas.
  Some of the original documentation has been lost, but the detailed research programme from the expeditions still exists - and it is, at least in principle, possible to continue to carry it out from where the earlier expeditions left off.

Power losses due to retardation and their prevention in water flow
David Jonsson, Sweden

  The effect of retardation of pressure changes in fluids are investigated. Changes of velocity in flows are assumed to be caused by volumetric forces identical to pressure changes. Pressure changes are identical to sound and move with the speed of sound. Pressure changes are shown to be associated with temperature changes. Drag is defined in two ways leading to a useful relation between power losses in the fluid and drag on the obstacle surrounded by the fluid. Means to counter the drag effect of retardation are shown by using heating. The energy efficiency and physical feasibility of drag reduction with heating is calculated. Potential flow is retardation free and also drag free and was thus considered a paradox in 1752 when d'Alembert discovered it. In 1937 drag free flow was found experimentally in the form of superfluidity and is no longer considered paradoxical. Drag due to pressure changes retardation are compared with other common forms of drag descriptions. Zero drag and negative drag are discussed. Negative drag is not impossible since the solutions are time reversible. Positive drag occurs with retarded pressure changes and negative drag with advanced pressure changes.

Water´s threefold nature, Flowforms and the significance of rythmical flow patterns
Nigel Wells & Michael Lusk, Sweden

  This presentation will take upp the work of Theodor Schwenck (founder of The institute for Flow Science) and John Wilkes  (the inventor of Flowforms and what is happening  worldwide now with the International Flowforms Association and the Healing Water Institute and also its efforts to get a film with a  holistic view of water off the ground.

Experiences with meandering water (Practical workshop)
Nigel Wells & Michael Lusk, Sweden

  This session starts with a 20 – 30 minutes slide show where we will see and learn about how water is meandering and the beautiful shapes the shows up during some circumstances.
  In the following workshop we will experience how a river shapes from a straight canal into a meandering water way. We will be able to shape different flow forms ourselves in a clay stream. Here we can play and have fun with water and learn a thing or two on how the water wants to flow.

Investigation of the inner structure of a vortex (Practical workshop)
Curt Hallberg & Anders Ive, Sweden  

  The inner structure of the vortex is very complex and well worth the study. In this case we will have a big barrel (3 m3)  of water where we first will study the effects of an aerator and how it is moving water and how the air bubbles behave. In the second phase we will accelerate the vortex and open a central bottom outlet so that a “twister” will be shaped. Now we can “play” with the vortex and put some dye into the water to see the anatomy of the vortex. Sand, small stones and other stuff can be thrown into the water to observe how the vortex behaves close to the bottom and on the way down.

Alternative Water Treatment

Synchronized water – A coherent oscillating state in bulk water respiration
Benny Johansson, Sweden  

  Recently, water has been considered a dissipative system, consisting of coherent water domains (CD´s) such that the CD´s are able to oscillate and a coherence state can be established among them. The coherent oscillation involves all molecules in the system oscillating in unison in tune with a self-trapped electromagnetic field at a well-defined frequency. The coherent oscillations produce an ensemble of quasi-free electrons, able to collect low-density energy from the environment and transform it to high-density energy in the form of electron vortices. Since these vortices are cold because of coherence they cannot decay thermally, so their lifetime can be very long. The CD´s includes a rotational frequency of the vortex. A change in the vorticity can be achieved by applying an internal or external electric or magnetic potential. An increase in the vorticity in the coherent water would induce a change in the amount of electrons leaked out from the CD´s, which in turn would imply a change in physical and chemical parameters. Examples will be given showing the different physical and chemical approaches obtained in spectral light, synchronized water and biological systems.

Charging Water with positive Qi

United States

I will show how to use orgonite to induce a positive charge in water.

Orgone Emanation From Planets? (Poster presentation)
Buryl Payne, United States

  A small Cloud Buster built from the work of Wilhelm Reich has been studied. It’s very simply a six foot standard six inch diameter stove pipe of galvanized steel mounted on a tripod. A metal funnel with a flexible spout is wired on the end of the stove pipe. The other end is open. For better aiming, the Cloud Buster has a 6 inch retracting telescope mounted on the tube, and an astronomical clock drive on tripod to keep the Cloud Buster pointed at a planet, the Moon, or Sun.
  Instead of ‘grounding’ the emanations in running water as Reich did, a glass
of water was fastened on the end of the funnel. After about twenty minutes exposure the water was taken orally. Sometimes there were noticeable psychophysiological effects. For instance the water from exposure to the Sun made people sleepy. There was no obvious change in taste. This was clearly observed in four cases with four different subjects. Water exposed to the full Moon tasted slightly nauseous. There were (about a hundred subjects) no psychological effects. Other visible planets produced different effects.

The Biofield - A new type of Force (Poster presentation)
Buryl Payne, United States

  A hanging wire wrapped pyramidal shaped frame which is free to rotate when placed over the subjects head has been studied. The amplitude of rotation varies with solar/geomagnetic activity. In this form it usually rotates a few degrees, usually counterclockwise as seen from within. Around a day or two near the full or new Moon the direction changes for a few hours. A small current is produced in the wire by a 12 volt battery, connected by very fine wires so as not to impede the rotation.
  Initially discovered by accident in 1979, observations and experiments of various forms of the device have been made for many years. It has been found to be present around all living organisms tested.
  The rotational force maybe spiral in nature and related to the Orgone Energy. A Danish researcher, Bjorn Vlistig claimed to generate useful electricity from one he made as large as a giant room. He claimed to obtain 5,000 watts from it. Another retired NASA electrical engineer found that it responded to remote healing intentions. He observed changes in amplitude in 100% of 18 trials with four subjects ten miles distant. Since then it has been validated with over 40 trials in 37 times with healers all over the United States.

Lars-Erik Einevik, Sweden  

  PhytoSystem is an entirely biological system, “crowned” with a plant bed and with an integrated biological bed underground. The system purifies residential sewage completely without additional use of chemicals and with negligible amount of external energy input. It replaces the ground-based installations, and can be connected to an already existing septic system. The treated water is brought back to the ground on situ, or it can be recycled by the household.
  PhytoSystem can be supplemented with a Multifunctional Septic System, a dynamic pretreatment process that can replace the common passive septic tank systems. Jointly, the two new systems reduce to a minimum the need for sludge evacuation. All organic material in the sewage is effectively broken down by microbial processes. What remains is the inorganic material.
  Two such systems are installed at the Swedish Agricultural University, Alnarp. The results of water analysis are very positive. All essential environmental parameters are far better than the required standard values.
  The only thing visible is the green area with local aquatic and bog plants. This adds aesthetic qualities and enhances biological diversity in harmony with natural life cycles

Measurements of the water treatment device of Watreco
Anders Ive, Sweden  

Many studies have been conducted by Watreco, associates and universities to study the effect of the water treatment device of Watreco. This talk covers the results from those measurements and their validity. One interesting clue to understanding the effects of the vortex is the subpressure in the center which supports extraction of gases in the water.

How to make living and healing water
Torben Munk Nielsen, Denmark

  I will present The Triple Breath cd’s that makes structured water by a sound and how to also make structured water by using the Living Water Vortex Jug and how to combine it. The Structured Water can be used to many purposes and every one can make it. The sound changes the vibration in the water and when we drink the water it will change the vibration in our cells. These tools are easy to distribute so that many people can benefit from them. I will also demonstrate how to use a cell phone to make structured water.  The Living Water Vortex Jug is based upon the principles of Schauberger.

Experiments with irrigation using treated water (Practical workshop)
Curt Hallberg & Anders Ive, Sweden

  Comparing tests in a d’Arcy hydraulic test unit, where we will try to determinate if there is any difference between treated and untreated water.
  In the next part we will investigate a water nozzle for irrigation purposes to see how the water looks like and how it behaves when hitting the ground.

Investigation of the effects of vortex treatment on water (Practical workshop)
Curt Hallberg & Anders Ive, Sweden

  The idea is that vortex treated water achieves a higher degree of activity and vitality.
Also the inner structure between the water molecules is altered. We will fill up a barrel of water (some 500 litres) and first take a control sample from this and then treat the rest by pumping it through one of Watreco’s vortex generators. After treatment we will measure some different effects.
  Areas that will be studied: Dissolution rate, Chromatography, Crystallisation pictures, Boiling.

Non-traditional Alternative Energy Sources

Cold fusion
Anders Heerfordt, Denmark

 The cold fusion phenomenon was investigated by own experiments and meeting and interviewing other experimenters. The phenomenon was found to be real, not fraudulent science. The phenomenon requires further investigation and could likely be developed to a reliable, cheap energy source.

Rasagrain Solar Energy Concentrator (Poster presentation)
Jim Rasmusson, United States

  The patented Rasagrain Solar Energy Concentrator (RSEC) is a solar collector that efficiently focuses energy from the sun and ‘follows’ the sun without the need to track the sun. With no moving parts, tracking is accomplished by optics and geometry with no need for electro-mechanics or input of electricity. It would be useful for those in remote areas, for spacecraft, and the production of super heated steam for steam turbines.
  The RSEC is a ‘Point Focus’ design that has a Concentration Ratio of 50. For comparison, ‘Linear Focus’ designs have C = 15 and ‘Compound Parabolic’ designs have C = 5.
  Unlike other concentrators, the RSEC will gather solar energy on overcast days with the current working prototype delivering 8% of what it absorbs on clear days.
  As a power source for spacecraft, such as NASA’s Deep Space One, the RSEC would increase the craft’s longevity not only by its simplicity of design but by its requiring less retro rocket propellant for attitudinal corrections. The current technology demands that the craft’s orientation be kept within a 2 degree acceptance angle which requires constant attitudinal adjustments. The RSEC functions well when within a 50 degree acceptance angle and would seldom require attitudinal adjustments.

Alternative Propulsion Systems

Some ideas on Vortex Lift
Curt Hallberg, Sweden  

  The transportation methods of today are technically insufficient and energy costly.
Therefore a future way of transportation must be less energy craving and something completely different to what we have today which is mostly depending on road traffic where some side effects are severe accidents and traffic jams.
  One idea is to lift the technology, up in the air where there is more space and possibilities to have an effective traffic control. However, this demands new technical solutions with better fuel efficiency and better capacity along with low noise levels and lower other side effects.
  In order to achieve this we must mimic the nature and learn from nature how birds and insects fly along with how fishes are swimming. Using vortices in the same way as moths and other insects do, we can design an air vehicle that have a high lift capacity along with VTOL properties and that uses much less fuel than the solutions we have today.
  In this presentation I propose some ideas on how to move forward to such a vortex lifter.

Efficient transportation on water 
Jürgen Sass, Sweden

  A boats hull with double chine, narrow bottom and fine waterline entry creates a boat that has low fuel consumption and a soft motion in waves. The upper chine and the flared stem complement each other so that the boat will remain dry in rough seas. In addition, this shape has good qualities in sharp turns.
  With an adjustable midship interceptor and an aft stabilizer, the boat becomes even more efficient at higher speeds. The planing surface area is limited to a small part of the bottom in front of the interceptor. The entire aft bottom is dry. With the aft stabilizer the trim angle will be optimally controlled. (Patent pending)
  A conventionally designed boat would need a roughly 50-100% larger engine and therefore higher fuel consumption.

Experiments with vortex propulsion (Practical workshop)
Curt Hallberg & Anders Ive, Sweden

  Here we will start with a demonstration and some experiences with an egg shaped jet nozzle. Smoke will be ejected in the air stream so we can observe how the air flow behaves. A disc shaped air foil will be examined in order to see how it is possible to use this as an aeroplane this will also be connected to some of the speeches. We will finish this with a demonstration of propulsion in water.
