Our World in a drop in "Cosmo"

Did you ever think about, that our "World in a drop" water research is represented in the magazine "Cosmopolitan"? Yes, that has happened and it is a fresh-modern article. There had been a special about water in the magazine and therefore we as water researcher and water droplet experts had been interviewed by the journalist. A very individual view, that we never thought about, but for this reason necessary and important. We as aerospace scientists from another world.... ;-)

The communication of lightwater

Lightwater. What a significant connection of two elements: light and water. The first water, which are titled so were Lourdeswater, Fatimawater or water from San Damiano, they all came from places of pilgrimage. In Germany they were also named Marienwater. The German magazine “Quell – das Magazin für nachhaltiges Leben” introduces, in issue Autumn/Winter 2016/17 41/42 an interesting and informative written article about the communication of light water and our water research. More about this amazing water research topic you find on our website.

„Water responds sympathetic“

What would be, when sympathy would depend on attracting water molecules? In our laboratory exchange some water drops over an distance of approx. 1,5 m information and influence each other. Adults with up to 70 % body water, which for example sit in a bus or a lecture hall, have exchanged information with each other, before they have even greeted each other. The German “Praxis Magazin” introduces in the winter issue 12/2016 – 1/2017 an informative and successfully written article about our seven secrets of water and the importance for man. The magazine appears in PACs Verlag GmbH in Staufen under the ISSN-No. 0162-7307T; the price is € 5. It´s only available in German, but you can find more about the communication of water here on our website.

A chapter about “The secrets of water”

We and our bodies communicate with water on different levels; on the physical level, when we watch a river, the sea or a pond or when we take a bath, when we drink water or when we wash ourselves and we communicate in a deeper, unconscious level. The publication VAS HERMETICUM introduces, in issue 02/2016 23rd volume, in an 8 page-chapter our research “The secrets of water” by Prof. Dr. Bernd Kröplin. The book is published twice a year in the Wiontzek-HERMETICA-Foundation, Owingen (only available in German language).

“World in a drop” in the book: Wij en Water

Gabrielle Sutherland describes in her book “Wij en Water” (we and the water) based on our impressive pictures how salvia drops look before, during and after a x-ray application or the impact on human beings on the structure of the water droplets; also very awesome is the research about water drops before and after a strong emotion and water drops from different places. The information about this water research is also available on our website under “research”.

Our "World in the drop"-research in the new book "Vital water - energy source for the body"

Vital water - what does this mean? Andrea Tichy is trying to explain this topic in her new book "Vital water - energy source of the body". She explains classical water research methods for example from Viktor Schauberger and his theories about vortex and waves. And she discusses new research results from themes like endothel-protection with vital water, the 4th phase of water and natural wells as powerful places.

Prof. Dr. Bernd Kröplin and our water research "World in a drop" is part in the chapter about the memory of water with our research under the darkfield microscope: "How does tap water and spring water effects the human saliva?", pages 30 to 33.

The book (only in German) is available in our shop.

Life, resonance and music

Alexander Lauterwasser, water researcher and musician, has participated successful in our water exhibition "World in a drop" several times. He is very interested in the effects of sound and frequencies on the surface of water and the forms, that this is creating. In his live concerts he creates magic sound and light installations with water projections. In his new book "Vibrancy - resonance - life" (only in German language) he publishs his new water-sound-photos related to the forms of life.

Prof. Dr. Bernd Kröplin has been cited in the book from Alexander Lauterwasser about the theme image-forming forces in life, which he finds in the structures of the dried water drops under the dark field micrsocope in his water research.

If you are interested you can order this illustrated book (only in German language!) from Alexander Lauterwasser in our "World in a drop"-shop.

Article: "Memory and Communication in Water" by Prof. Dr. Bernd Helmut Kröplin

"Water is a medium that is largely not understood by physics and chemistry. Its material nature is tested, studied and understood by physics. However, beyond its physical and chemical qualities also memory and information play a significant role in water, and these form a bridge from the immaterial to the material world and vice versa. These subtle phenomena are the ground of misunderstanding, and they can neither be studied nor detected by traditional experimental methods. Hence, we use a different approach: we investigate the patterns that appear in a water drop after evaporation of the water and photograph them under the dark field microscope. (.....) Our findings prove the memory of water and also the communication between separate units of water. Both seem to be essential for the understanding of mechanisms in living cells - these consist for approximately 70% of water - as well as for the communication of water in the world. This knowledge constitutes a reason to talk about a new dimension of quality and health of our planet."

This article explains very short the faces of water, the influence of inlaid flowers, the influence of electromagnetic waves, influence of mobile phone on body water and more...

The magic of water

We are drinking it. We take showers, brush our teeth and rinse our groceries. We are swimming in it – and all this, without thinking much further about it. Water is self-evidential. However, the elixir of life has not been investigated down to the last detail. The magazine “Traumbäder” introduces, in issue 09, in an informative and successfully written article water and research around water. The magazine appears in the Fachschriften-Verlag in Fellbach; ISBN-No.978-3-939164-39-5. Here you can take a look into an excerpt of the article.

The healing mystery of water

Today, the beneficial effect of the physical application of water is scientifically accepted. However, the energetic power, which activates healing impulses in the inner body is a different matter. Yet, there is a change upcoming: scientists make more and more phenomena measurable, which the naturopathy section has observed already quite some time ago. In a dossier of the German health magazine “Natürlich gesund + munter” the different effects from ultrasound, music, mobil radiation, and also living objects on water are summarized again. These effects can be seen among others in the results of the research of Prof. B. Kröplin under dark field microscopy. The beginning of research of bio-technology and material research of other scientists are briefly introduced. Here we have for you page 1 of the three page article as an abstract and download.

Music in blood – more as an idiom

Annette Kolb and Katharina Sinner – both young scientist – treated drops of blood with diverse sounds of music and kept this effect in pictures. Without sound there was a structure of honeycomb pattern to be seen. To soft piano music it became a nicely crinkled wickerwork and under heavy metal the inner structure nearly scattered into pieces. Thus, we hear music not only with our ears but also directly with our body fluids… (…). Further information to the experiment can be found here.

TATORT "Nachtwanderer"

8.10.2006. On this evening the ARD (German television) broadcasted the TATORT episode "Nachtwanderer" with the investigator team from Ludwigshafen on the Rhine. The following Monday, the telephones were running hot: "Could we please speak to the inventor of the spit test?" Who? Excuse me what do you mean? Spitting - we knew nothing about it! The episode of the crime scene in “Nachtwanderer” had triggered a lively viewer survey and a public discussion about the effect of radiation of the mobile phone on human beings: "The eerie spit test" is the title of the Hamburger Morgenpost, "Radiation from mobile phones even in the blood provable" writes “Bild” one day later. It is amazing what a TV thriller can trigger in response and inquiries to our water research. The experiment commissioned by Commissioner Kopper in the course of his “Tatort” investigations is well known to us and Prof. Dr. Bernd Kröplin. We have been performing it with water drops and human saliva in the laboratory for a number of years under a dark field microscope.

The TATORT episode told a story about mobile phone radiation and exploded mobile phone antenna masts and so we found one of our scientific experiments at the prime time of the ARD television: photos of human saliva drops before and after a two-minute mobile phone call which significantly change their inner water structure. This can be observed well under the dark field microscope during the drying process. The TATORT had adapted our research test "saliva before and after mobile radiation" in its series as a "spit test", in order to convict a culprit. Science meets fiction. This caused a lot of excitement, but it was just as fast. What remains: mobile phone and mobile phone work!

Who would like to look at or original experiment with us: please click here.

The scene of the TATORT crime scene in “Nachtwanderer” in the movie in detail: "In the crime scene, Commissioner Kopper suspects a mobile phone boss had chased a handymast into the air, and the theory of the alleged perpetrator do not let go off Kopper. Does the handymast harm his health? Kopper makes the mentioned "spit test": He spits on a mirror before and after telephoning, the claims of the mobile radio opponent are confirmed: under the magnifying glass, the dried saliva drop is different in each case: we carried out this experiment hundreds of times, but under a darkfield microscope. “Droplets show a different structure under the darkfield microscope before and after the mobile phone call”, says Prof. Dr. Bernd Kröplin,"we observe these phenomena, which can be repeated and we photographed the drops. What exactly causes the changes in the structure of drops is yet not known in detail. We are still at the beginning of our work." The people from Stuttgart have shown the effects of electromagnetic radiation in saliva, blood and urine. The drops are already changing after a two-minute mobile phone. There is currently no adequate explanatory pattern for the drying behavior of the water according to these influences and its associated different images. But it can be documented." (From the announcement of the exhibition "World in a drop" at the Urania Berlin in 2006).

Medical staff using homeopathy, alternative therapy, and alternative medicine know by experience: Water has a memory, which makes it possible to transmit healing information to the body. Within the “hard core” science this assumption/thesis is being discussed highly controversial. A subject determination of the exhibition “World in a Drop” (…)

The ability to retain information
Thus, has water a memory? Does it remember, what happened? “In a certain way”, guesses Kröplin. “If I define memory from the Brockhaus as an ability to retain information, which can be stored over a long term and can be restored then, one could indeed talk about memory.” For instance, a sample from gentle dehydrated human saliva on a slide illustrates distinct other structures before and after a mobile phone call. “Water reacts to electromagnetic radiation highly sensitively”, discovered the team of researchers around Kröplin.

Due to the fact that Kröplins method is easy in handling, he gets more and more support for his research on memory of water. Pupils of the Droste-Hülshoff-Gymnasium in Rottweil investigated recently in an “experiment with several persons the impact of music”, what music in water causes…

“What is the reason, that water makes us feel well? That we spend our vacation at the seaside or seek relaxation after a long working day in a warm bath or likewise go swimming? Why does the endless immensity of the sea fascinates and give relieve to our nerves? (…)”

“The pattern of the drop pictures,” Kröplin is convinced, “are not coincidental (…) For instance structures of the drop pictures do change, when water is briefly exposed to the low electromagnetic field of a mobile phone. Afterwards the microscope pictures show exceptionally clearly visible structures, that are yet limited. “Water has remembered what happened”, says Kröplin, “even though the mobile phone had been taken away.” (…)
Liquor, saliva, blood, and urine belong to the body fluids containing water in abundance. But also muscles have a water content of 50 percent and even the bones have one of 22 percent. Every body fluid generates its own drop picture.”

„These are pictures inspiring the imagination. Some remind of glowing balls or show concentric circles, which gather around a light center. Despite different forms and colors the pictures have the same source. They are remains from water drops applied on thin slides. After the liquid had evaporated, the experimentators from the Institute for Static and Dynamic for Aerospace Constructions of the University of Stuttgart checked the achieved result under the microscope. The patterns were photographed and now enhance the exhibition at the Urania of Berlin: “World in a Drop” (…) “Scientist must pay attention to the consequences of their achievements in research“, says Prof. Kröplin. Therefore he is looking for the development of methods, in order to investigate the impact of electromagnetic fields on organisms. (…) For example: dried drops of saliva before and after a two-minute-call on a mobile phone. The structures that at first remind of ice crystals changed into green and brown circles. (…) “With our research we want to initiate a dialogue,” he says.

At the Institute for Static and Dynamic for Aerospace Constructions (University of Stuttgart) a lot has been done to water: it is being radiated, exposed to sound waves and it will be shaken well. In addition after an ultrasound treatment, which is equal to a mechanical impact, so it is demonstrated the molecular structure has changed. Among other “watery” specimen, there was taken in account human salvia before and after a phone call by mobile phone, thinned alcohol and many more “watery items” in order to experiment with them…
