Jan van Toor,
Germany & Georg Schröcker, Austria
Comprehensive overview over the on-going activities of the authors in
their challenge towards a better understanding of Viktor Schauberger’s
visions and devices. Several concepts of "sogwendel and wave discs"
combinations (3-D printings) are shown as well as a whorl pipe
investigation. Finally an in-river concept for clean energy generation
The energy of heat and pressure of the calm environment will solve
global energy problems
The purpose of this report is to show the
reality of the ideal sources of energy. It is a renewable low-grade
heat energy, static pressure and heat energy of the condensation a
relaxed ambient atmosphere and the aquatic environment. Numerical
calculations, which showed that these sources are able to extract
energy from one cubic meter of air or water 10-100 times more than wind
and hydroelectric power. These power plants will be Autonomous,
environmentally friendly and cheap. These plants can give thermal,
mechanical and electrical energy. Examples of this energy are heat
pumps, vacuum bomb, tornado and others. Extraction of this energy can
allow to radically solve all the energy problems of the Planet.
Atmospheric Electricity and Water Synergy, a
Non Traditional Energy Source
A recent paper assumes that lightning above active volcanoes to be
caused by electrical charging of stones and ashes through
triboelectricity, piezoelectricity, etc. Lights and lighting are also
related to earthquakes. The conclusion is that it is the “D” layer, the
boundary between the solid mantle and the liquid core acts as the
generator. But between the “D” layer and the Earth surface there is
another conductive maze, the ground water system. A system sourced by
the solar wind electrons and trapped near the poles by the Earth
magnetic field, producing so Atmospheric Electricity. The current sinks
are lightning and corona discharges in tropical forests. The
capacitance of the maze is modulated by the moon, making the electrical
charge propagation similar to a “bucket” memory. Studies show
that when a solar storm increases the source, the discharges occur at
higher latitudes, thereby reducing similar activity in tropical
regions. Using this “bucket” approach allows us to store and transform
the electrical energy tsunami caused by a Sun storm, acting so not only
as energy source, but also limiting earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
(1917-2017) - in memoriam
& Curt Hallberg,
Environmentalist and author Olof
Alexandersson passed away earlier this year, shortly after his 100th
birthday. He spent a large part of his life awakening interest in
Viktor Schauberger's perspective on water. We take a moment to
contemplate his efforts and their impact.
Viktor Schauberger's early
This presentation will give an historical overview of how Viktor
Schauberger's research on unconventional energy evolved from 1914 and
onwards. It traces the development of his ideas about
anti-gravitation/levitation, excentric movement, generation of
cold and heat and transmutation of atoms - and examines their relation
to modern cold fusion (LENR) research. Quotes from his correspondence,
unpublished patent applications and some remaining artifacts and photos
help us to reconstruct and understand his efforts.
Alternative and Imposed Water Flow
Anya van Wijk,
The alternative flow of water means in fact the “natural” way, while a
controlled, more or less linear flow, is the imposed way. Almost
unknown is that each is related to a scientific system: The 5 movements
for the alternative flow and the 4 element system for the linear flow.
“Fire” and “Water” are used in both systems, but they are not the same!
For light as part of Fire, this is known for centuries. However with
water it is less simple, there we must understand why fishes are killed
in large quantity and water can turn white during a thunderstorm. Also
why Diane Poitiers remained so beautiful all her life. And how Philipp
Lenard was unable to prove the Lenard waterfall effect, in his
laboratory in Bonn. And last but not least, unravel the secret of the
trout, as observed by Victor Schauberger, and the salmon to mount
upstream into a waterfall. Understanding the difference between the
systems, and taking in account their electrical and biological
characteristics in combination with temperature induced density
variations is necessary to clarify and improve the performance of flow
pipes and the evolution of water beds.

The Minoan water palace at Knossos
Curt Hallberg &
Lasse Johansson, Sweden
A brief presentation of lessons to be learned from the 3000 year old
Minoan water engineering at Knossos, Crete. We will discuss how
water flow in the conical Knossos pipes excavated by Arthur Evans,
spiraling forms on vessels and their relation to water treatment
devices, and the idea advanced by the Irish scientist Moore that
Knossos was built as a kind of water palace.
The fish flowform
Bart Wesseling, The
In free nature rhythm and flow are interconnected inseparably. The
Dutch foundation Fishflowform aims at developing a new type of fish
passage based on that principle. The initiative for the project was
inspired by the ideas of the English sculptor and water-researcher John
Wilkes who was the inventor of the “flowform”. By choosing the right
shape, dimensions and hydraulic properties the functionalities of a
fish passage and a flowform are combined in a new hydraulic structure.
The project has three main objectives: 1. The restoration
of the ecological continuity (fish migration) in and between water
systems concerned in a way which is at least comparable with other
types of fish passages; 2. The improvement of the aquatic
ecosystem by enhancing the capacity of the
passing water to be the bearer of life processes; 3. The creation
of a landscaping structure with high aesthetic properties: the design
of the structure itself and the the prominent dynamic flow pattern.
After a period of preliminary examination the Dutch
conservancy De Dommel has made a valuable contribution to the project
by building a full-scale experimental prototype.
Currently a research programme is being carried out,
including o.a fish migration, hydrology, hydrodynamics, chemical and
physical properties and aqua-ecology. The promoters have decided to
expand the general scientific research programme by including energetic
and radiesthetic measurements (such as the determination of the Bovis
value of the water and the landscape).
The first results of the research programme are promising:
a great number and variety of fishes use the fishflowform for their
A threefold archetype in
flow, phenomenologically and geometrically
All the forms we see
in the natural world may appear fixed but have been, or still are, in
flow. When we study flow, we find what is called laminar, harmonic flow
between stillness and turbulence. This has archetypal form gestures,
which are also seen in life forms and revealed so beautifully by
Theodor Schwenk in his book, Sensitive Chaos. Viktor Schauberger
highlighted the importance of the vortex in water flow.
How should we think the vortex? How does it relate to this
archetypal forming, and to us as human beings? How does a Flowform
with the vortex?
Lawence Edwards in his book, The Vortex of Life , shows
how the Path Curve construction of projective geometry can give rise to
vortex. Is this a key to understanding the vortex in a holistic way?
I will explore these questions with a selection of videos
of water in flow. I will introduce the Path Curve construction of the
spiral vortex and show how one can play with it. Then we will see if we
can develop an archetypal adaptable idea of the vortex working in the
life forming of nature.

Experiences with water vortices
Institute of Ecological Technology (IET) and Watreco have investigated
and developed water treaters based on Viktor Schaubergers work since
1994. In this technology we utilize the effects of the vortex for
various purposes. By treat the water with Vortex Process Technology
(VPT), ice for ice skating, as an example, can be improved. Energy can
also be saved as the ice laying process demands lesser energy if vortex
treated water is used.
Another application is algae problems in ponds can be
reduced or solved as the VPT imitates the natural cleaning process
found in rivers. As a side effect, an economical aeration of the water
The idea behind VPT - Vortex Process Technology is to
allow a fluid to self-organize into an ordered vortex movement. Vortex
movement is fundamental in nature. It occurs in galaxies, tornados,
mountain streams and human blood flow. The unique biomimetic design of
VPT applications allows the harnessing of the extreme power of a
tornado for industrial applications.
The vortex generator is inspired by Viktor Schauberger, an
Austrian forester who spent his entire life studying natural water
flow. During the first half of the 20th century, Schauberger came up
with eco-friendly alternatives to some of the non-sustainable
technology still in use today.
Controlled experiments with vortexed water
Ingwersen, Henrik Mondrup Kristensen, Rune Bak Jensen, Anders Heerfordt
& Nikolaj Sorgenfrei Blom, Denmark
Many observational studies have indicated that
plant growth may be stimulated by irrigation with vortexed water or
water which has been treated by other physical means. Only a few
studies have been designed as controlled experiments in which effects
of treated water is compared with that of untreated water, all other
growth conditions being similar.
We have conducted several controlled experiments in
commercial greenhouses operated at optimized growth conditions. The
growth - in terms of quantitative crop yields - of tomatoes, cucumbers,
mushrooms, herbs and berries was compared between those treated with
vortexed water and untreated water
Furthermore, we compared the milk production in an organic
herd of cows divided into actively treated and control animals.
None of the completed and preliminary experiments showed
any significant difference between active treatment and controls.
The paper will highlight the importance of using
controlled experiments and discuss the possible reasons for the lack of
Workshop observing water movement and
forming water in clay channels
the 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.
How to structure
alternative research on water
Efforts to structure alternative research on water
This presentation focuses on the need for
adequate "maps" to navigate through and get an overview of data on
alternative research on water. We discuss the need for keywords,
standardization of terminology, and of classification of information
and papers in terms relevant for alternative research on water.
Problems with existing databases - how their organization of data and
how their review and inclusion policies lead to problems when applied
to unconventional research, particularly to status-quo-bias and
exclusion - are discussed. Steps taken to create alternative research
databases to help assessing and reviewing alternative research on water
are discussed, as well as the most needed next steps.
Structuring alternative research on water -
a framework for creative
In our creative conversations, we often
noticed that we lack a language for what we want to describe. What I
want to convey here is a broader mindset that I use in my daily
creative work. The aim is to discover new connections and thereby open
for new opportunities to create balance and harmony of our daily life.
Using New Media to Communicate Water
Research and Quantum Biology
The acclaimed Danish film director, Phie Ambo, set out to make a
documentary film about consciousness called “ ..when you look away”.
She used the principles from the double slit experiment and ended up
with a film dealing mainly with water research and quantum biology.
This talk will describe the involvement of the presenter
in the film, his journey in the water research area, his experiments on
water and antibiotic-resistant microbes and how it all led to the award
of a prestigious research grant for studying new properties of quantum
biology and water.
Before its official premiere, the full-length (80 min) documentary will
be shown at the IWONE conference.
in flowing water (Practical workshop)
In this workshop we will study the process of
self-organization in water flow with the aid of an egg-tube with
swirling flow and a subpressure sink, and how just changing the
conditions spontaneously creates macrocopic structures in the
We will also study the flow in "Knossos pipes" - pipes modelled on 3000
year old terra cotta pipes excavated at Knossos (Crete) - and
visualize the macroscopic toroidal structures that appear in the flow.
