I'm opening this thread here to discuss an individual named Viktor Schauberger. He developed unconventional understanding of Physics and mathematics which got him ridiculed and persecuted so to speak by the conventional thinking of the times. The man had interesting , though unconventional theories on the properties of water and it's various uses for mankind. The unconventional part works for me since I have always been a little tweeked that way in my my brain when it comes to research and experimentation with regard the plant world, but it's allowed me to discover new things on my own that no one else has.
Many of the observations in nature that Schauberger described are things I also have seen, but until I read Olof Alexandersson's book, "Living Water"
which is basically a biography of Viktor Schauberger back in the early 1990s, I'd never run across anyone who looked at things similiarly. I lived for 24 years on the edge of wilderness and got to see many things in a pristine enviornment. Schauberger also had that advantage and more so since he was born in the late 1800s and died in 1958. Sadly much of that pristine habitat is almost gone.
I'll try and research some good links on Viktor Schauberger and in the mean time perhaps some here have some study on the man and can make comment. Here's a few simple introductory links that will give an idea or background of the man to those who've never heard of him. These sites are specifically Swedish and I can understand their interest as there are many folks here, not all , but many interested there in nature and science and quite specifically Mr Schauberger.
Who was Viktor Schauberger?
When you do a Google on Viktor Schauberger, be prepared for a few kooky websites dealing with UFOs. Not making fun of anyone here, but perhaps you understand what I mean. The reason the UFO subject comes up is because Viktor Schauberger was given a laboratory by the Nazi government at the end of WWII in Vienna, Austria. He was a native of Austria. He invented the first models of what we know as flying saucers, but it had to do with the side effects of votex action of water he discovered years before. Basically he had created a vortex run generator, but it levitated off the ground as a side effect. He named the device, the "Trout Turbin"
as a result of research observing the reason Trout & Salmon are able to easily with no effort defy the tremendous force of ice cold river water by remaining almost motionless in it's force. Then when disturbed or frightened, they can move like lightening up rapids or waterfalls with little effort. Anyway, too much to discuss at this point, but the USA & Soviet Union developed their rocket and space programs based on some of his research. Hence if you'll recall now in history, much of the UFO sitings in the USA & Soviet Union came in the late 1940s and 1950s. The U.S. had Schauberger under guard for about a year and the Soviets captured many of his assistants at the end of the war. Just letting you know what you'll start finding when you Google.
PS: Notice I've toned it down on the bold print????
Still gotta use some colours tho
