The human body is made up of 70 % water and the earth is made from 70% water….ghost or apparitions are often associated with places close to water. Can water be imprinted upon and hold a memory? Several theories are out there, here are two.
Japanese researcher Masaro Emoto states that if positive words are spoken to water, and then a water sample is frozen, the water crystals will form in a symmetric pattern. If negative words are spoken to a water sample, then the water sample is frozen the water crystals form will form in a chaotic manner. Remembering words that are spoken.
Water memory was first proposed in 1988 by French Immunologist Jacques Benveniste. Benveniste proposed that a serial dilution, used in homeopathic treatment would “remember” what substances/molecules were added in. During treatment a Sample would be diluted until not a single molecule remained. His test used Human antibodies. Those tested had an allergic response to the dilution.
These serial dilutions are made with distilled water or alcohol, vigorously shaken in a process called succussion. Succussion was believed to activate the “vital energy” of the diluted substance, thus increasing potency of the homeopathic treatment.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing.
The findings were published in Nature journal in 1988. Colleagues of Benveniste challenged the findings calling it pseudoscience. He stated that tests defied established laws of chemistry. The publisher, John Maddox, demanded replication of this experiment. Under direct supervision of a hand picked team they called “ghost busters”. These “ghost busters” included Maddox himself, James Randi, a paranormal researcher and physicist, Walter W. Stewart. Multiple complaints of distractions, magic tricks and witch hunting plagued all future tests.
A $1 million dollar prize was offered for any party that could replicate positive results to the same test.
A chemist from the University of Belfast, Madeline Ennis almost claimed $1million dollar prize in 1999. In 2010, years later, Ennis’ point of view is still that: (…) there appears to be some evidence for an effect – albeit small in some cases(….)
Their theory is that water is in all substances, bricks, wood, human etc. and much like residual hauntings water somehow can help retain a memory from any surrounding.
I really enjoyed reading the article. It makes some sense to me. Could it be that simple??? Probably not.
