Given the surprisingly dangerous situation at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant this past week, I want to look at another possible inventor (besides Nikola Tesla) of free and non-polluting energy.
Yes, gentle reader, such things seem ludicrous and impossible to me as well, since I was not taught about them by TV or public school — the two sources of all relevant truth in my upbringing. ;) However, let’s try to look with an open mind, okay?
“The Austrian, Viktor Schauberger… was untiringly patient when learning from his teacher — the natural world. In Alpine forests, along rivers and in the fields of traditional farmers, the forester/scientist learned about life-enhancing energy which enters a substance such as water or air through inward-spiralling movements of the substance. During his lifetime of persevering study he copied nature’s motions in his own engineering.
“Prevailing technology uses the wrong forms of motion. It is based on entropy — on motions which nature uses to break down and scatter materials. Nature uses a different type of motion for creating order and new growth, he admonished.
“The prevailing explosion-based technology — fuel-burning and atom-splitting — fills the world with expanding, heat-generating centrifugal motion, he warned. On the other hand, energy production and other technologies could instead use inward-moving, cold-generating centripetal motion, which nature employs to build and enliven substances.
“Even hydroelectric power plants use destructive motion, he said; they pressure water and chop it through turbines. The result is dead water. His suction turbine, on the other hand, invigorated water. The result, he said, was clean, healthy water….
Free energy from nature
“. . . Then he turned to extracting electrical energy directly from the flow of water and air. ‘They contain all the power we need.’
“Hitler had heard of the Living Water Man through an industrialist. After Germany took over Austria in 1938, word came to Schauberger that he would be hired… (and given a laboratory)….
“(Schauberger sent for his son Walter,) and the duo were soon extracting 50,000 volts from fine jets of water at low pressures. A physicist from a nearby technical college came; his first action was to search for hidden wires. When he could find none, he lost his temper and asked Walter where he had hidden the electrical wires. Eventually he had to admit there was no trick involved; the experiment was valid. However he could not explain such a high charge from water.”
The article goes on to describe how Schauberger was drafted during WWII and forced by the Nazis to lead a team of scientists in building special flying craft, otherwise he would watch his family killed. At the end of the war, the American and Russian military confiscated all his papers and creations. Later, after emigrating to America, the article says Schauberger had all legal rights to his inventions taken away from him by American businessmen, and died in despair in 1958.

Questions for consideration:
- Were you taught about Viktor Schauberger’s life and inventions in school? It sounds like he was somewhat famous in Europe during the 1930s and 1940s.
- Do you think splitting atoms and burning hydrocarbons represent the most advanced energy technologies humankind could ever hope to discover? Or do solar panels, hydroelectric and windmills represent the upper limits?
- Did you know that the Fukushima nuclear plant contains far more radiactive material, and was potentially far more dangerous, than Chernobyl?
- Do you think water could be more mysterious than we give it credit for?
