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
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
