Water and dowsing
What is water?
Water is taken for granted by 99%+ of our scientific colleagues. It's only a strange fringe of the Scientific and Medical community that bother going back to first principals and ask "What is water?" In fact, in some surprising ways, it turns out to be a very strange substance. You can keep pure water liquid way below zero degrees C. With a bit of electricity you can fuel cars on it. In biology, it is not only a conductor of -ve ions (electrons, electricity), it is also a conductor of sunlight (protons, +ve ions, proticity)
It's been suggested that dowsing is an electromagnetic phenomena. I concur; I do believe there is a scientific basis.
This is my theory (cough) :
- All flowing water is flowing in the earth's magnetic field.
- All ground water (usually) contains soluble material, is ionised to a greater or lesser extend, and therefore it is conductive.
- By definition, when any conductive material moves through a magnetic field, it will generate an electromagnetic current.
- Fleming's Right-hand rule applies.
The only questions then are
(a) how strong that field is, and
(b) how sensitive individual people are to the electromagnetic field.
We are all sensitive to some extent. Some are naturally more sensitive than others, but it is a sensitivity that can be harnessed or acquired. Like being a trained singer, or a martial artist who exercises control and demonstrates the art.
