The Fountain of Youth

I first want to give gratitude to Paul for letting us participate ever so slightly in his devious plots on world domination!

As the great Sepp Holzer says, it all starts with water. Water is our main earthly constituent. I have been intrigued by it for many years. I would stand at the kitchen sink and play for hours with the water. I was a child trapped in my parents post war suburban struggle. My mother was raised outside of Las Vegas and thought it was amazing to see the above ground nuclear tests to the east. That is another story.

I don't want to get to afar afield but there is no terrestrial life without water. Ponce' De Leon searched for the famous fountain of youth. There are around the world venerable sources of water. They are natural springs that the locals swear have healing and longevity properties. There are several common traits that these waters have in common. 1. They are free from contamination, 2. They have a very rich compliment of minerals and 3. They have natural motion or action. Each of those points can be delved into in great depth and detail. The better we have all of those aspects in our waters, the better our our macro and micro organisms will thrive.

Scientifically, water is a fluid crystal that has electrostatic and molecular curiosities that modern science has yet to fully appreciate. Modern hydrologists and industrial suppliers of "Clean Water" as Paul loves to say, "... want to make Nature their Personal B*%@&." As Sepp loves to say, "Catastrophe!" Most if not all water and beverage that comes out of a pipe, bottle, jug or can is less than optimal to say the least. Most water is contaminated to some degree, has poor or detrimental mineralization and has either passed through an unnatural piping system or has been sitting so long that it has become unhealthfully stagnant.

These points bring me to mention the work of another AMAZING Austrian, Victor Schauberger. He dedicated his life to learning about and trying to help us understand about water. I have to ask myself, why are there so many amazing people from Austria; Sepp Holzer, Victor Schauberger and of course the incredible Von Trapp family of The Sound of Music, but I digress.

When Victor Schauberger tried to explain how he came upon his discoveries, he would say every time that he studies nature. He tells of trout in a cold stream that are motionless at the bottom of a swiftly moving stream and then almost instantly dart to another section of the stream. He tells of how he would pour warm water from a bucket above the fish and they wash down the stream until the natural invisible formations are restored by the nature of the stream. The many pages of books and the video's that are available of his work contribute to some of the solutions that we all need and crave. Victors work helps explain some of Sepp's attention to his water and things like "The Monk" action and what is going on.

There are solutions that can be done wherever we find ourselves. I am still compiling and testing what I have been led to. Here are some of the resources I have found that I haven't completed:

Books: (Compiled and translated by Callum Coats) Living Energies, Nature as Teacher, The Energy Evolution, The Fertile Earth, The Water Wizard; (Other titles by various) Living Water, Hidden Nature, Viktor Schauberger and the Path of Natural Energy, Self-organizing Flow Technology.

You can also Google his Victor Schauberger and click on video for some quick or long videos regarding some of his work.

I am confident that there are small and large things we can do easily for better water solutions to help drive Paul's plots on world domination and get our own personal and collective fountains of youth!

Post some of the wisdom you have gathered.
