https://soilandnutrition.org/ | Gerald Pollack:The Fourth Phase of Water
School children learn that water has three phases: solid, liquid, and vapor. We have recently uncovered a fourth phase that occurs next to water-loving surfaces. It is surprisingly extensive, projecting out from the surface by up to millions of molecular layers and its properties differ markedly from those of bulk water.
Of particular significance is the observation that this fourth phase is charged; and, the water just beyond is oppositely charged, creating a battery that can produced electrical current. We found that light charges this battery. Thus, water can receive and process electromagnetic energy drawn from the environment in much the same way as plants. Absorbed electromagnetic (light) energy can then be exploited for performing work, including electrical and mechanical work. Recent experiments confirm the reality of such energy conversion.
This energy-conversion framework seems rich with implication. Not only does it provide an understanding of how water processes solar and other energies, but also it may provide a foundation for simpler understanding of natural phenomena ranging from weather and green energy all the way to biological issues such as the origin of life, transport, and osmosis.
The talk will present evidence for the existence of this novel phase of water – how come nobody’s seen it before? – and will consider the potentially broad implications of this phase for natural health.
