    Index 283 Foreword

    Water is the commonest substance on the face of the Earth, yet we

    really know very little about this essential source of life. We do know

    that without it there would be no life — indeed there would be lit-

    tle in the way of chemical reaction, for water is the universal cata-

    lyst. Water is also our potential nemesis, for today it is widely agreed

    that if there is another world war, it will be waged over this precious

    resource. Water in a state fit enough for human consumption or for

    succouring the life cycle of the brown trout is now in short supply

    and its availability is diminishing every day.

    Before Austria had stripped her mountains of all her old growth

    forests, Viktor Schauberger, a forester, observing how a trout could

    maintain its station in the midst of a turbulent stream, discovered

    the secret of living water. Distilled from the sea and leaving most of

    its burden of salt behind, it droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven,

    taking up kinetic energy as it makes its way back to ordnance

    datum (standard sea level), itself controlled by the balance of the

    global greenhouse.

    En route this living water absorbs minerals from both soil and

    bedrock sufficient to nurture the pulse of life itself, tiny herbs, some

    full of the power of healing, and the natural vegetation that gener-

    ates organic soil. The trees, reaching up to the Sun, power houses for

    transforming energy, are driven by living water, ameliorating the

    climate near the ground, controlling erosion and helping to main-

    tain the life-giving water cycle.

    If this cycle gets out of balance in any way, the consequences are

    dire, as insurance companies are now discovering. Drought, floods,

    winds and wild fire out of control, and perhaps worst of all, eutroph-

    ication, the clever name for too many nutrients choking the very

    arteries through which living water used to meander its self-cleans-

    ing way down to the sea.

    There is much in Schauberger's philosophy that gets up the

    noses of the science that sees only financial profit at the end of their

    glass telescope of knowledge. Alick Bartholomew is to be congratu-

    lated for bringing Schauberger's vision into focus in this book at the

    most opportune time. Wave power is beginning to come on stream

    FOREWORD with the promise of base load electricity cheap enough to split, not

    the polluting atom, but the water molecule, into oxygen and hydro-

    gen — the latter to fuel the much discussed non-polluting, fuel cell-

    based, hydrogen economy.

    Is this a wise strategy? In the absence of Schauberger as my

    mentor I sat beside the stream in my garden with Tornado jets mak-

    ing warlike passes overhead, and watched a trout enjoying what are

    perhaps the only real human rights, peace and access to living

    HIDDEN NATURE Introduction

    'I no longer own my own mind. I don't own even my own thoughts.

    After all I've done, finally there is nothing left. I am a man with no

    future.'1 These were the words of Viktor Schauberger, an Austrian

    naturalist, the pioneer of Eco-technology (working with Nature)

    who had devoted his life to demonstrating how the desecration of

    our environment proceeds directly from our complete ignorance of

    how Nature works at the energy level. His controversial credo was

    that humanity must begin, with humility, to study Nature and learn

    from it, rather than try to correct it. We have put the future of

    humanity at risk by the way we produce and consume energy. His

    aim was to liberate people from dependence on inefficient and pol-

    luting centralized energy resources and generation of power.

    Viktor was communicating his distress to his son, Walter, on the

    plane home from Texas after a nightmare of exhausting cross-

    examination to extract the secrets of the devices he had developed

    which demonstrated free energy, anti-gravity and fuel-less flight.

    He died five days later on September 25,1958, in Linz, Austria, of a

    broken heart. Father and son had embarked on an ambitious, but

    ill-conceived, scheme hatched by an American consortium' which

    probably had CIA and atomic energy connections, in order to per-

    suade him to give up the keys to his mysterious research (see Chap-

    ter 18). Schauberger had in 1944, under threat of death, been forced

    to develop a flying saucer programme for the Third Reich, the secret

    weapon which, had it been initiated two years earlier, might well

    have tipped the war's balance in Germany's favour.

    Schauberger's inspiration came from studying the water in fast-

    flowing streams in the unspoilt Austrian Alps, where he worked as a

    forest warden. From his astute observations he became a self-trained

    engineer, eventually learning, through the implosive, or centripetally

    moving, processes that Nature uses, how to release energy 127 times

    more powerful than conventional power generation. By 1937 he had

    developed an implosion motor that produced a thrust of l,290m/sec,

    or about four times the speed of sound. In 1941 Air Marshall Udet

    asked him to help solve the growing energy crisis in Germany; how-

    ever the research came to an end when Udet died and the plant was

    INTRODUCTION subsequently destroyed by Allied bombing. When in 1943 Heinrich

    Himmler directed Viktor to develop a new secret weapon system with

    a team of engineer prisoners-of-war, he had no choice but to comply.

    The critical tests came just before the end of the European war. A

    flying disc was launched in Prague on February 19,1945, which rose

    to an altitude of 15,000 metres in three minutes and attained a for-

    ward speed of 2,200kph.2 An improved version was to be launched on

    May 6, the day the American forces arrived at the Leonstein factory

    in Upper Austria. Facing the collapse of the German armies, Field

    Marshal Keitel ordered all the prototypes to be destroyed.

    Schauberger had moved from his apartment in Vienna to the

    comparative safety of Leonstein. Meanwhile the Russians pushed in

    from the East and captured Vienna; a special Soviet investigation

    team ransacked his apartment, taking away vital papers and mod-

    els, and then blew it up.

    The Allies seemed to be well aware of Schauberger's part in

    developing this secret weapon. At the end of hostilities, an Ameri-

    can Special Forces team seized all the equipment from his Leonstein

    home and put him under 'protective U.S. custody 'for nine months'

    debriefing. It seems likely that they could not fathom his strange

    science, for they let him go, although this group, detailed to enlist as

    many of the front-line German scientists as possible, took back

    scores of other 'enemy' scientists to give a vital boost to American

    industrial and military research. They forbade him from pursuing

    'atomic energy' research, which would have left him free to follow

    his dream of fuel-less power.

    For the following nine years Viktor could not continue his implo-

    sion research because the high quality materials needed for his very

    advanced equipment were beyond his means, and he had no spon-

    sors. In addition, he may have been haunted by remorse for having

    been forced by the German SS to design machines of war.

    Schauberger was essentially a man of peace who, above all, wanted to

    help humanity become free; so he turned his attention to making the

    Earth more fertile, developing experimental copper ploughshares.

    Levitation and resistantless movement

    This strange life path had started on his return to civilian life after

    the First World War, when Viktor Schauberger went to work in the

    mountains. His experiences of unspoilt Nature were life-changing.

    HIDDEN NATURE One such that would set him on a lonely course to change the course

    of human life for ever, he describes graphically:

    It was spawning time one early spring moonlit night. I was

    sitting beside a waterfall waiting to catch a dangerous fish

    poacher. Something then happened so quickly; I was hardly

    able to grasp it. The moonlight falling onto the crystal clear

    water picked up every movement of a large shoal of fish

    gathered in the pool. Suddenly they dispersed as a big fish

    swam into the pool from below, preparing to confront the

    waterfall. It seemed as though it wanted to scatter the other

    trout as it quickly darted to and fro in great twisting move-


    Then, just as suddenly the large trout disappeared into the

    huge jet of falling water that shone like molten metal. I could

    see it fleetingly, under a conically shaped stream of water,

    dancing in a wild, spinning movement, which at that moment

    didn't make sense to me. When it stopped spinning it seemed

    then to float motionlessly upward. On reaching the lower

    curve of the waterfall it tumbled over and with a strong push

    reached behind the upper curve of the fall. There, in the fast

    flowing water, and with a strong movement of the tail, it


    Deep in thought, I filled my pipe, and as I wended my way

    homewards, smoked it to the finish. Often subsequently, I

    witnessed the same sequence of behaviour of a trout leaping

    up a high waterfall. After decades of similar observations that

    manifested like rows of pearls on a chain, I should be able to

    come to some conclusion. But no scientist has been able to

    explain the phenomenon to me.

    With the right lighting, it is possible to see the path of

    levitational currents as an empty tube within the veil of a

    waterfall. It is similar to the tunnel in the middle of a

    circulating vortex of water plunging down a drain, which

    brings up a gurgling sound. This downwardly-directed

    whirlpool drags everything with increasing suction with it

    into the depths. If you can imagine this whirlpool or water-

    cyclone operating vertically, you get the picture of how the

    levitational current works and you can see how the trout

    appears to be floating upward in the axis of fall.3
