More energy is encapsulated in every drop of good spring water than an average-sized power station is presently able to produce. Viktor Schauberger (1885–1958) Water – all life depends on it. Yet how often do we stop to consider its true significance, its essential nature? 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. Schauberger was a pioneering genius who combined keen observation of Nature with intuitive brilliance and a sharp engineer’s brain. One of the first genuine environmentalists, he was predicting ecological catastrophe when no-one else could see it coming. In the era of global warming, deforestation and desertification, Schauberger’s predictions are now being proven right. A fearless exponent of natural energy who revelled in doing battle with contemporary orthodox scientists, his work is enjoying a worldwide revival because he was able to convey how an understanding of Nature’s subtle energies is essential to our survival. Schauberger made a lifelong study of water – from mountain streams to river flows and from domestic supplies to advances hydraulics – developing profound and radical theories about its inherent energies, which earned him the name of ‘the Water Wizard’. According to Schauberger, water is akin to blood in the human body – the most important life-giving and energy-empowering substance on the planet. Yet, with incorrect, ignorant handling, it becomes diseased, affecting human, animal and vegetable life alike, causing physical decay and, in the case of people, their moral, mental and spiritual deterioration as well. Sadly, the same extractive and water management policies that Schauberger indicts in The Water Wizard, which brought devastation and widespread pollution in his day, are still being practiced today, leading to a revival of interest in Schauberger’s work. Themes covered in The Water Wizard include: The natural pulsation of water and how to maintain it How minute differences in temperature affect the natural function of water in the earth, in plants and in rivers How to regulate rivers without damaging their vitality and health The natural conversion of sea-water into fresh water The consequences of sterilisation and chlorination of water. The Eco-Technology series makes available for the first time Viktor Schauberger’s original writings and passionate debates. Callum Coats has painstakingly collected, translated and edited the material for what promises to be the most definitive study yet of this extraordinary man’s life and work.

The Crisis of Innovation in Water and Wastewater

Author: Duncan A. Thomas
Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing
ISBN: 1781958394
Release Date: 2005-01-01
Genre: Business & Economics

This is an extremely well-researched and documented book. The authors hypothesis is that the current water and wastewater sector is failing the populations of the western-world by clinging to orthodox and short-term visions of new technology and innovation, and also failing the developing nations by believing that delivery of western-world high-technology solutions is a contribution to humanitarian development. This is the crisis of innovation . To many practitioners in the water industry the book will be perceived to be hypercritical (of the incrementalism, conservative and dogged traditionalism ) of the sector, but in fact it is stimulating and positive. In the latter chapters an alternate more holistic model of water development is described. There needs to be a movement from large, central infrastructure resources to distributed systems that are more appropriate to local needs and can be coupled with environmentally sustainable energy sources and practices. Tim Lack, European Topic Centre on Water, UK Whilst acknowledging a massive leap from standpipe to universal water provision in 100 years in developed countries, the authors of this book see problems for global sustainable water supply and wastewater removal in the future. Using the UK water industry as an example, they describe the global water industry as risk averse and unwilling to innovate, a view that is encouraged by the institutional and financial regimes under which it works. The book explores the reasons for concern and sets out some hard-hitting views on how the water industry is failing to identify and tackle the essential problems in a world which is becoming ever more depleted of fresh water. The concluding chapter brings to a focus the problems of the crisis in innovation and gives some concrete suggestions for tackling them. This volume should raise the awareness of policymakers and regulators, technologists and concerned members of the public. Peter Chave, Independent Consultant and formerly Head of Pollution Control, National Rivers Authority, UK This significant new book highlights a little acknowledged but potentially catastrophic crisis of innovation in the global water sector, which institutions and industries are frighteningly ill-equipped to tackle or even accept. It suggests potential new technology and policy approaches to overcome both current and future problems. The book explores how technological innovation is vital to help provide sustainable water in both the UK and developing countries. However, innovation is being overlooked in the face of global trends to privatize and regulate water utilities. The authors highlight how the global water sector is failing to respond to increasingly complex world needs and continues to build largely unsustainable centralized infrastructures, opposing more appropriate, distributed and local modern technologies. The book also includes suggestions for potentially innovative technology and policy solutions to meet escalating global water and wastewater demands. Importantly, the authors adopt a long-term perspective that crosses both disciplinary and institutional boundaries, and include an international comparative perspective, covering a diverse range of examples and countries. This comprehensive book will have a broad appeal amongst researchers and academics with an interest in technology management, innovation studies, geography and development studies. It will also be a valuable asset for water regulators and governmental and non-governmental organisations working in this field.

L eau un tre sensible

Author: Milène Souvignet
Publisher: BoD - Books on Demand
ISBN: 9782322038794
Release Date: 2014-10-28
Genre:

Il est dit dans les sociétés traditionnelles que l’Univers ne fait qu’Un. Si l’on s’en tient à cette proposition, chaque discipline propose une vision du monde selon un concept et un cadre de référence qui lui est propre. Au final, tout est lié et étroitement interconnecté. C’est dans cet état d’esprit que l’eau sera abordée, sous l’aspect méconnu et peu documenté qu’est sa « sensibilité » ou encore sa « dynamisation ». L’objet principal de la réflexion est d’effectuer une synthèse de l’ensemble des recherches faites à ce sujet, sans en faire un catalogue, mais plutôt en retraçant le fil d’Ariane entre les différents résultats, afin de les replacer chacun dans un champ de cohérence et de compréhension plus grand. Chacune des avancées de la réflexion est étayée par les résultats et pensées de nombreux chercheurs, chacun apportant une pièce du puzzle selon sa propre spécialité ou approche (physico-chimie, biologie, mécanique quantique, relativité générale, dynamique, mouvement...). Est impliquée près d’une quarantaine de chercheurs de tous les pays, des années 1900 à nos jours, tels que Jeanne Rousseau, Goethe, Theodor Schwenck, Marc Henry, Pier Rubesa, Nassim Haramein,... C’est en analysant les travaux de chacun d’entre eux que l’on parvient petit à petit à construire l’image d’un tableau de plus en plus précis, vaste et cohérent. Le point de départ s’appuie sur les connaissances connues et communément admises par la communauté scientifique. Peu à peu l’étude progresse sur un terrain de moins en moins connu et/ou peu développé à l’heure actuelle, hormis dans quelques milieux de recherche privés ou de pointe. Trois voies d'approche sont explorées : la voie expérimentale, la voie de l'observation (anthroposophes et artistes) et la voie théorique des mathématiques avec les trois grandes sciences actuelles : la mécanique classique de Newton (échelle macroscopique), la mécanique quantique (échelle de l'infiniment petit) et la relativité générale d'Einstein (échelle de l'infiniment grand).

Wasserkristalle

Author: Ernst F. Braun
Publisher:
ISBN: 3855029938
Release Date: 2004
Genre:

Von der Quelle bis hin zum ruhenden Meer hat das Wasser viele Gesichter. Eines davon ist sein lebendiges, ausgestattet mit Bewusstsein und Gedächtnis. Wasserkristallfotos zeigen uns dieses Gesicht in unterschiedlichen Formen. Wasser von Quellen, Bächen, Flüssen und Seen oder ein Wasser ohne Geschichte wird dazu in Fläschchen gefüllt. Diese werden an Orten der Kraft vergraben, in einen Raum gestellt, mit Steinen umgeben, an einen Baum gebunden, unter den Nachthimmel gelegt, mit einem Wort oder einem Namen beschriftet oder einfach in den Händen gehalten. Tropfen dieses Wassers werden eingefroren; dabei bilden sie einen Hügel mit einer Spitze, und auf dieser Spitze nimmt die Geschichte des Wassers Gestalt an. Einzelne Bilder erstarren und können mit entsprechender Vergrößerung unter dem Mikroskop gesehen und auch fotografiert werden. Das Wasser zeigt uns seine Information, diejenige des Ortes, der Steine, der Bäume, der Räume, des Kosmos, von Symbolen und Worten oder auch unsere eigene. Der unvergessliche walisische Dichter und Barde Taliesin, ein Gesinnungsgefährte von König Arthur und dem Zauberer Merlin, spricht in einem seiner Gedichte davon, dass eine Trennung zwischen Materie und Geist eine Illusion sei. Das Wasser scheint dieser Vorstellung Recht zu geben. Gedanken und Denkanstöße in diesem Geist begleiten die faszinierenden Bilder. Außerordentliche Bilder von Kristallbildungen auf gefrorenen Wassertropfen. Anregung zum Sinnieren, Meditieren, Staunen und Träumen.

ISBN: 3931936856
Release Date: 2010
Genre: Aesthetics, German

Summary: Rudolf Steiner is regarded as one of the most influential | and also one of the most controversial | reformers of the twentieth century. He founded the Waldorf schools and advocated a holistic view of humanity which shows its influence in many areas of our lives today | including bio-cosmetics, a heightened environmental consciousness and biodynamic agricultural products, to name a few examples. Steiner inspired artists such as Piet Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky and Joseph Beuys. He was one of the founders of "organic architecture" and also developed a unique stylistic idiom in the area of furniture design. The Vitra Design Museum exhibition "Rudolf Steiner | Alchemy of the Everyday" is the first major retrospective on this universal thinker and artist. Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg (13.5 - 3.10.2010); Kunstmuseum Stuttgart (5.2 - 22.5.2011); Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein (9.2011 - 4.2012).

„Es gibt nur wenige, denen es wie John Robbins gelingt, Menschen zu einer Ernährungsweise zu inspirieren, die gesund und von einem tiefen Respekt für die Erde geprägt ist.“ Paul Hawken In Letzter Ausweg vegan setzt sich John Robbins mit überzeugenden Argumenten und kraftvoller Stimme für eine menschen- und tierwürdige sowie nachhaltige Zukunft auf unserem Planeten ein. Er hat die Entwicklungen in der „Nahrungsmittelpolitik“ und in allen Bereichen, die mit unserer Ernährung in Zusammenhang stehen, seit vielen Jahren nicht aus den Augen gelassen, war als „verdeckter Ermittler“ unterwegs und hat seine Beobachtungen und Erkenntnisse in Kolumnen in der Huffington Post veröffentlicht. Die Sammlung der jüngsten provozierenden Enthüllungen erscheint nun zusammen mit bislang unveröffentlichten Texten in Buchform. Robbins’ scharfe Beobachtungen und zwingende Schlussfolgerungen fordern uns alle zur Selbstverantwortung auf, denn: Nur ein achtsamer Umgang mit unseren Mitwesen und daraus folgend eine bewusste Ernährung können unser aller Leben und die Erde wieder in Harmonie bringen. John Robbins – weltweit anerkannter Kritiker der heutigen Nahrungsmittelindustrie – veröffentlicht hier seine neuesten Enthüllungen über das schmutzige Geschäft mit unserem Essen und ruft zu mehr Mitgefühl, Verantwortungsbewusstsein und gesundem Menschenverstand in dieser „unmenschlichen Zeit“ auf – überzeugend und schonungslos! In Letzter Ausweg vegan beschäftigt er sich unter anderem mit Themen wie ● dem Drama der Massentierhaltung und der Schlachthäuser, ● der Sklaverei hinter dem Kaffee und dem Kakaohandel, ● dem Schwindel mit dem synthetischen "Vitaminwasser", ● den Marketingtricks der Junk-Food-Konzerne, denen speziell Kinder und Jugendliche zum Opfer fallen, ● dem Zusammenhang zwischen Sojaprodukten und Alzheimer, ● erschreckenden Erkenntnissen über die Auswirkungen der hormonverseuchten tierischen Nahrung …
