Alternative water treatment

Trying to explain small stable structures in fluids where advection is constrained
David Jonsson, Sweden
Some critique against water clusters are that clusters can not be stable at so high temperatures that they are mentioned to exist at. There are however flow situations where Coriolis forces are turning advection paths into circles and thus preventing dissipation. Temperature and pressure are lower in the center of rotating flows. One such flow form is appears to be where flow elements move in helical paths turned into toroidal shape. Some limiting criteria have been found for bending a helical flow. Similar flow forms has been observed to endure for a long time and is thus dissipating its inner motion with a low rate. Physical "water memory" does not only require confinement but also bistability. Some requirements for and features of bistability have been found. A work function to change between two stable flows is presented.

Re-Engineering of Viktor Schauberger's Sherman "Edelwasser" device
Jan van Toor, Germany

During the last days of his visit in Sherman Viktor Schauberger sketched and described a simple device to generate noble water. The presentation gives an overview over the author's re-engineering activities of this water apparatus . A personal view on the possible physics behind the design is given. A  demonstration of a 3D printed engineering device as well as the way forward  will be part of the presentation.

Vitalizing water
Jørgen Jensen, Denmark

Following 20 years of research in water, based on also Schauberger’s research, Lotus Arts has developed a method for vitalizing water, consisting of an energized egg shaped glass jug with a glass egg containing outstanding mountain spring water from Norway, balanced in the natural forces of the four elements. The principle is that water heals water when nature itself guides and determines the pathways and developments in the research. The design of the water vitalizer is based on the golden mean ratio and the spiral movements in the egg, in the balance between male and female, heat and cold. Essential accessories include water bottle and egg shaped glasses, as well as a unique detoxifier.

The 20 years of trials with humans show very positive results such as increased vitality and immunity, cleansing of the liver, kidneys, blood and intestines, and fulfilling the daily needs of high energy levels. We consider first hand experiences the most trustworthy measurements of life forces. And our research and tests show that the water is raised in vibration, can not be a breeding ground for harmful bacteria, has nearly unlimited shelf life, and becomes self-cleansing, transmuting and releasing harmful substances and able to reject attacks on its integrity and wholeness. The detoxifier cleanses the body of heavy metals and complicated emotional states.

Introduction to vortex treatment of water
Curt Hallberg, Sweden

Institute of Ecological Technology (IET) and Watreco have investigated and developed water treaters based on Viktor Schaubergers work since 1994. 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.
   The idea 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.
  We will look at some of the effects of vortext treatment of water, e.g. on absorption in soil and algae problems in ponds.

Experiments with vortexed water (Practical workshop)
Curt Hallberg, Sweden

In this workshop we will do experiments with vortexed water and look into some measurable effects.
  We will study how water seepage through a large column is affected if water previously have been vortexed, and discuss the various consequences this has for soil adsorption of water and for agriculture.
  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.

Workshop observing water movement and forming water in clay channels (Practical workshop)
Nigel Wells, Sweden

In 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.

Water and memory - some reflections
Lasse Johansson, Sweden

A phletora of experiments implying some kind of water memory exists - i.e. an ability of water to retain information or structure, particularly after different kinds of alternative water treatment. In this presentation, we will look into some examples of water memory phenomena.

Bach flower essences and the patterning of water
Julian Barnard, United Kingdom

Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930s developed as set of flower essences, intended to capture the essence of flowers by floating them on water. Each plant would correspond to an emotional state of man, and the essence be used for healing  distress and illness brought from that emotional state. The essences has been used for over 80 years, particularly in Britain.

Julian Barnard, with more than 30 years experience of manufacturing Bach flower essences, will invite to a dialogue on how the information from the flowers is actually captured first by water and then by man.

We will discuss the gesture of plants (form and function), the sun method, the patterning of water, the passive force field, overwriting & erasing patterns and the healing process.

Energy in dynamic and static water
Jan Capjon, Norway & Benny Johansson, Sweden with participation of Florin Secosan (geometry).

At IWONE 2015 Jan presented the background and plans for a funded research project: Energizing water through flow — and research on the effects. This project is now completed and the proceedings and findings will be presented. Foundation for Water (FFW) was collaboration partner and Software AG Stiftung  (SAGST) was financing partner. Energy content in water, before and after treatment in FlowForms, was intended to be measured by means of Professor Gerald Pollack´s spectroscopy metod + Dr. Benny Johansson´s thermal IR imaging method (TIRI). The former turned out to be unsuccessful, whereas the latter proved to be operative. Statistically relevant TIRI-based measurements showed an energy increase in treated versus untreated water.

Having become accustomed to the potential of TIRI, we proceeded to an original challenge: Can the geometry of a container influence the energy content of storage water? More specifically a number of glass carafes, diffentently shaped through path curve forms (extracted from projective geometry), were tested and compared. It was found that container shape can influence the energy in stored water. But the findings were not completely in alignment with the hypothesis!

Indirect effects on plants and soil

Atma essences and the atma garden in Denmark
Casandra Askjær, Denmark

Atma essences are based on vitalized water and developed in conjunction with research in drinking water quality. The atma garden is built around an obelisk which maintains the presence and effect of the atmas out across a very large area. The atma essences are used to strengthen the plants, especially for the cultivation of flowers, vegetables, berries and fruits. The land is cleansed by the atma essences through an atma life spiral and spraying or watering with atma essences on the ground or directly on the plants.

This has the effect that the plants become productive, strong in themselves and very healthy, which is particularly distinct when spraying any plant that may be weakened for some reason. Cultivation takes place in spirals and is also aided by a large glass egg with vitalized water placed in the ground.

Main results are on health, well-being and peace for people and plants, as well as development of new ways of organic cultivation. The birds are singing all year round. People become natural and relaxed. Healing of illnesses, even cancer, heart problems and mental conditions has been observed.

Gardening and restoration with Schauberger's garden repulsator and bio-machines
Lasse Johansson,  Sweden

Viktor Schauberger spent many years developing devices to improve the quality of vegetation and the fertility of soil, with the purpose to ultimately be able to restore ecosystems damaged by man. In this presentation we will review his thoughts and efforts to create "bio-machines" for this and look at their construction.

Particularly, we will look into the available documentation of the garden repulsator, an egg shaped vessel in the ground intendend to give a kind of radiation that enhances the quality of the crop in its vicinity, and the experimental results done by IET and Olof Alexandersson since 1986 with the garden repulsator.

We will also look into the potential use of some of Schauberger's other devices, the repulsator (motor driven) and the repulsine, for the purpose Schauberger ultimately had for these devices: the restoration of soil, eco-systems and nature as a whole.

Exploring Viktor Schauberger's garden repulsator (Practical workshop)
Curt Hallberg, Sweden

Viktor Schauberger's garden repulsator is an egg shaped vessel in the ground intendend to give a kind of radiation that enhances the quality of the crop in its vicinity.

In this workshop we will get hands on experience with the garden repulsator, how to construct it and see how it can be applied to gardening.

We will also look into the "clay singing" described by Schauberger for creating a special water to improve soil fertility and how it can be created in a motor driven barrel.

Alternative climate influencing - with focus on restoring ecosystems and healing nature

Viktor Schauberger's perspective on nature and restoration
Jörg Schauberger, Austria

Viktor Schauberger spent a large part of his live observing nature in untouched  areas, and tried to develop methods for the management of natural waters and forests in way that was working in harmony with nature.

Jörg Schauberger, the grandson of Viktor Schauberger, will give a general introduction to Viktor Schauberger's perception of nature and his views on land use and restoration.

The presentation will e.g. touch upon Schauerberger's views on reforestation, the full and the half water cycle, management of natural waters, temperature regulation of natural waters, water retention by vegetation in mountain slopes etc.

Efforts to structure alternative water research - an update
Lasse Johansson & Robert Bärnskog, Sweden  

We will give an update on the work around need for adequate "maps" to navigate through and get an overview of data on alternative research on water.

As a first step a literature  database to help assessing and reviewing research on water inspired by Viktor Schauberger has been created.  Some progress with indexing published documents relating to the ideas of Viktor Schauberger will be discussed.

Influencing local adaptive process through integrated regenerative  methods that enhance the resilience of the eco-system as a whole - lessons from Bhutan NAPA project
Nirmala Nair, South Africa

In a world that is increasingly becoming too smart for its own good, too polarised, and too enslaved to techno solutions, we are forgetting the role of simple common sense. Climate sector is one such sector. Most of the climate change funds focus on big projects, capital intensive and top-heavy. Simple common-sense approach of working with microclimates is not something appreciated by the big climate scientist. Even when they talk about adaptation and resilience etc., they are keen only to focus on how the local situations can adapt to climate funded projects, and how these projects can become "resilient" - a planned resilience.

Bhutan is small country at the receiving end of global warming. A country powered by glacier fed rivers Bhutan is preparing for many climate-induced crisis scenarios. The country has invested in smart early warning systems monitoring the floods from glacier-melt floods with a warning system able to rescue communities in 8 hours lag time.

But there is something else that has been impacting thousands of ordinary farmers around Bhutan on a much regular basis than glacier melt lake outbursts of flood. Climate induced erratic monsoons, aggravated by steep terraced farming of rice and maize, resulting in soil erosion, drying groundwater sources have been negatively impacting the lives of almost all farmers across the country.

LOCAL initiatives (Local Organic Climate Action and Learning) is the story of how simple low cost green technologies and permaculture methods blending with the appropriate local traditional systems of knowledge along with decentralised community driven management became popular at local level for farmers who felt disconnected and alienated from the mainstream.

Restoring and vitalizing groundwater
Casandra Askjær & Jørgen Jensen, Denmark

Through research in drinking water quality and the development of 120 atma essences, Lotus Arts has developed a method to cleanse bodies of ground water and create protected woods around the bores for drinking water extraction. It requires minimum 5 hectares of land planted under the guidance of the common consciousness of the trees, and where vitalized water in egg-shaped glass containers are buried in the ground. Hereby existing streams and lakes are revitalized, the ground is cleansed, and the four elements come in balance. The locals should be taught how to care for the project.

A project of this type has been implemented by the Gudenå river in Denmark where the Gudenå has since become clean and self-cleaning. Three supposed extinct species of the Potamogeton genus of aquatic plants have reappeared, even in large quantities in some parts of the river.

Observing and contemplating water (Practical workshop)
Lasse Johansson, Curt Hallberg &
Nigel Wells, Sweden

In this workshop we will do simple experiments to observe water and enhance our perception of the behaviour of water. We will e.g. look at the motion of ink drops in water, experience the "Rheingold", create conditions for and observe the meandering patterns of water, and contemplate the motion and reflections of water.
