One thing I have always found fascinating is how the water has a mind of it's own. I get unexpected results all the time. At a friends store last week, I found an interesting book titled: "The Hidden Messages in Water" by Masaru Emoto. In his experiment Dr. Emoto used about fifty different water sources varying from glacial water in Japanese mountains to filtered water from a faucet. He then attached different messages to each water sample and even had a Buddhist monk bless some of them.
Some of the messages were: "Love and Gratitude," "Thank you," and "You make me sick." He included a variety of positive and negative thoughts. He then froze the water samples on Petri dishes in a freezer at -4 degrees Fahrenheit for 3 hours. His stated results showed a strong correlation between the message and the formation of the water crystals, and then he photographed the crystals. Water samples with optimistic messages on them created "nice-looking" crystals and the ones with pessimistic messages created "ugly" crystals.
I found it all very fascinating. Water has a frequency, a vibration? I believe there are a lot of things that we can't see that we have yet to know and come to understand. So I did my own experiment. I attached a message "love, joy and peace" to the tray of water, and I sent good thoughts to it. This is one of the resulting images. I have never had this shape before in a collision (where one drop hits the top of another drop). Also, to Jeff, thanks for pointing out the smiling face in the column!
I think that's kind of cool. I like unexpected surprises like this...
