One of the most important is that concerned with the balance between schaubergr polarities, each of which has its particular manner of expression. Darius Crow Breeding rated it it was amazing Dec 15, Earlier cultures acknowledged the tremendous power of imma- terial life-energies. The critical tests came just before the end of the European war.
Selected pages Title Page. Often subsequently, I witnessed the same sequence of behaviour of a trout leaping up a high waterfall. This is the best non fiction book I have read.
The Water Wizard, the first volume of the Eco-Technology series which presents the original, passionate and convincing research of Viktor Schauberger in translation for the first time, looks at the importance of water to our daily lives.

As this was his modus operandi, we need to take a look at this whole question of energies. An understanding of any creative process is impossible without true awareness of subtle energies.
This is sometimes used as natue metaphor for the bal- anced personality. Nature’s Patterns and Shapes 55 Sound as resonance 55; Resonance is about qualities 58; Plants have perception and memory 59; Cymatics 60; Patterns and shapes 61; Patterns in motion 62; Rhythms within the solar system 62; The confrontation of two geometric systems 63; Sacred geometry 64; The golden mean 66; The magic of the egg form The pride we hold for our Machiavellian machines that pour out incessant noise and heat is based on the mistaken belief that we represent the summit of evolution.
But, like other visionaries who challenged the establishment, Viktor posed a threat to those who benefited from the status quo. Its shiny scales minimize friction with the water, but they also create scores more of little vortices that amplify the upstream counter current, particularly towards the tail, which cancel out the pressure on the fish’s snout. Most people have heard of Viktor Schauberger only in connec- tion with his inspired ideas about water or of the energy-saving machines that vjktor the enormous power encapsulated in lively water.
How to bring them into balance was called ‘squaring the circle’ and was the pursuit both of architecture and philosophy. In this way Nature’s balance is upset, the most obvious being the supremacy today of the more aggressive energies of humankind.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. He stated as far back as that our culture hidedn significantly reduce Biodiversity if we continued to exploit the latter energy. A few seconds later the log slipped through tne first curve and was gone.
Now we seem to have backtracked a generation and we can’t even agree to imple- ment the kind of cuts in carbon startlign emissions that are essential to avoid catastrophic climate change.
As the vehicle for creative energy, the spiral is clearly schuaberger in the organic growth of plants and embryos. Schauberger would refer to these different levels as ‘octaves,’ but we shall describe them as ‘dimensions’ or domains.
James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis recognized this creativity by naming the Earth ‘Gaia’ after the classical Earth goddess. Our own bodies too are but kernels of a much broader, invisible self that extends around us, and with which we can feel another’s energy. We can see that flowing water is energetic. The minute, but nevertheless abnormal, schauberget in the average temperature of the water and the chaoticized flow that resulted, had interfered with the trout’s hovering insiyhts.
Buds contain all the concen- trated energy of the future plant, and their mathematical analysis can yield clues as to how this formative energy is expressed. They are not part of conventional wisdom. His heightened sensi- tivities enabled him to be th of phenomena more subtle than most of us are able to perceive.
Thus a given natkre structure is created by an idea dependent on a particular frequency level or pattern of vibrations or resonances, higher vibrations producing higher forms and vice versa. We use the wrong form of motion– The ‘original’ motion– Types of motion7. He saw that we were hell-bent on a path of self-destruction, and predicted that, within a generation, our climate would become more hostile, our food sources would dry up, there would be no healthy water, and ill- ness, misery and violence would predominate.
But he told how both his parents believed in the healing power of water, and of their insight that the quality and transportive power of water in a stream was particularly strong on a cold night, and more so under pf full Moon. The moonlight falling onto the crystal clear water picked up every movement of a large shoal of fish gathered in the pool.
Too bad, because I was interested in reading Viktor Schauberger’s thoughts and theories, but in this book they have been inseparably mixed with those of his followers. Not only does this implosion technology produce much more energy than the ‘explosive’ methods currently employed, but it cre- ates no waste, pollution, global warming or other damage to Earth’s fragile ecosystems. I think it is excellent.
Popular passages Page 15 Vikgor forms in Nature respond to each other by means of res- onance; you might insighfs it ‘Gaia’s glue. Throughout nearly all of humanity’s time on this planet, the Earth has been regarded a sacred being, the Great Mother.
It is then that fertilization, reproduction and growth are at a minimum, but the solar energies continue to penetrate deep into the Earth to awaken the embryonic female energies lying far below the surface.
DA-da-da or ‘LUB dup rest,’ as he puts it, in the above type of music this emphasis is reversed, i. Balance Perhaps the most important of Schauberger’s insights that we have to heed is the importance of balance in Nature.
That levity is not acknowl- edged by conventional science presumably has to do with its being one of these more subtle energies which are anathema to the reduc- tionist mindset.
When Viktor passed again some two weeks later, he noted that the spring had indeed dried up due to exposure to the Sun’s rays. It floated down for about metres and then suddenly grounded on the bottom, causing the water behind to rise and overflow the flume. We have wchauberger every day that fall outside the accepted conventions of reality; like little synchronicities, intuiting events, the sensing of different qualities of ‘atmosphere’ as emanations from people, situations insjghts places, the power of thought over action, communication with a household pet.
The Attraction and Repulsion of Opposites The Sun as a fertilizing entity We all know that sexual reproduction requires insemination of the female by the male but, according to Viktor Schauberger, the Earth works on the same principle. No one explains, as convincingly as Schauberger, just how this has come about.
