Intersting information on the properties of water that I thought you guys might find interesting. I got these passages from Quest For The Unknown
: Earth's Mysterious Places.
Whether or not water has some sort of memory has been the focus of several controversial experiments. In 1988, French immunologist Jacques Benveniste
and his colleagues caused a furor within the scientific community when they claimed that they had observed white blood cells reacting to antibody
molecules. They suggested that perhaps water "remembered" the structure of the antibody and could act as a "mold" for it, affecting white bloood
cells with which it was mixed. Benveniste's theory would, if proven explain why the scientifically derided practice of homeopathy works. ( In
homeopathy, extremely dilute solutions of substances that provoke certain diseases are said to be effective in treating those very diseases.) However,
although Benveniste's work has been duplicated at laboratories in various countries thoughout the world, his results remain highly controversial.
In his paper Water Friend or Foe? (1985) Dr. Cyril Smith of Salford Univeristy England, claims that water can memorize the electrical
frequencies to which it is exposed.
American physicist Fred Alan Wolf, wirting in the book Mind and the New Physics (1984), suggests that water may even explain the mystery of the
way memory is stored in the brain. He believes that microscopic drops of water present the synapses (connections between brain cells) may help
elctrochemical signals to pass between the cells.
In the 1930's German engineer Theodor Schwenk conducted experiments in which he shook a number of bottles of water beofre, during, and after a solar
eclipse. When he germinated wheat grains in the bottles, he reported significant stunting in those grians that were germinated in the water shaken
during the eclipse. He therefore concluded that water is a highly receptive medium "open to the cosmos".
Sorry for any spelling/gramatical errors I had to type this from the book I couldn't copy or paste anything.
