Beyond solid, liquid & vapor. Dr Pollack outlines this amazing discovery:


Given water’s simplicity and pervasiveness through nature, we presume that water must be completely understood, but in fact precious little is known about how water molecules line up—until recently.
Students learn that water has three phases: solid, liquid and vapor. But there is something more: in our laboratory at the University of Washington we have uncovered a fourth phase. This phase occurs next to water loving (hydrophilic) surfaces. It is surprisingly extensive, projecting out from surfaces by up to millions of molecular layers. And it exists almost everywhere throughout nature, including the human body.

I thought he was gonna claim it was the "mist" form!

It is neither liquid nor vapor but doesn't matter we love it in Arizona during the hot Summer days!

Sounds like a "publish or perish" attempt to re-organize our thinking about things that are easily explained with existing knowledge. It's no secret that water is a bipolar molecule, and confined to small spaces (like inside the small tubes described) they will line up in + to - orientation. Brownian motion +/- convection (explaining the participation of EM effects) will then take over to cause "flow" thru the tube...

He also displays his ignorance of intracellular activities. Biomolecules have secondary &tertiary structure determined exclusively by polar & hydrogen bonding of component parts. Water has little do with it, but tags along passively influenced by its own polar tendency. Intracellular coontent cannot be equated with a solution of chemicals In water as a solvent.
