Book Description

July 5, 2001 0717133079 978-0717133079 2
Why are so many species of plant and animal disappearing? How is it that Earth is losing more fresh water than it is producing? What are the effects of chlorination and fluoridation of water? The answers to these and many more pressing environmental questions are to be found in this remarkable book - the first in-depth examination of the life and work of the brilliant forester, scientist and pioneering inventor, Viktor Schauberger. Schauberger's insights into Nature pivoted on the essential characteristics of water as a living and pulsating substance that energizes all of life, both organic and inorganic. He frequently asserted, ""Water is a living substance!""--an ideal to which many philosophers have subscribed. With his ground-breaking concepts on energy, biomagnetism and the true function of trees, he showed how a world that exploited its resources rather than cherishing them was doomed to destroy itself. Above all, he demonstrated how Nature's abundance is the result of a complex interaction of energies that actually create matter, not the other way around as orthodox science believes. For him energy was primary, and physical form the secondary effect.

5.0 out of 5 stars IF you only buy one Schauberger book - get this one! November 24, 2002
I have every book written by Callum Coats on the Schauberger subject. This book, if you only buy one of them, is the definative book to get. I would basically call it a complet Schauberger reference work, as it contains all of the material that will later be expanded in the "Eco-Technology" series - which contain more thorough descriptions of Viktor's work. This book is great on its own, however, and will not dissapoint anyone interested in learning more about the "water wizard" - Viktor Schauberger. I highly recommend this book as a great starting point for study on everything from understanding the vortex, implosion technology, water-power in general, Schauberger's inventions, his forestry upbringing, and as a general biography, this book can't be beat.

5.0 out of 5 stars enlightened textbook for environmental studies February 12, 2003
Living Energies gives the understandings necessary for revitalizing Planet Earth -- for understanding which human actions either enhance or destroy the vitality of our forests, soils, air and water. I tell people about Living Energies more often than I promote my own books! Living Energies is the best book in the world for understanding the extensive wisdom of the Austrian forester and genius Viktor Schauberger. Academics, politicians and many other decision-makers should all study this book, if they can set aside any prejudices they might have regarding some inclusions of spirituality in a science book. It's the big picture!

4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Theoretical Exposition October 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
This book gives a view of Viktor Schauberger. It is a call to action to stop destroying our planet and the importance of water to the life of the planet. It discusses the strange contradictions where Schauberger was such an ardent environmentalist and yet gave the means to destroy the forest he loved. It also shows how the system destroyed Schauberger like it does most of the great people who make the valuable contributions in our world. More evidence that evil rules the world.

I was interested in Schauberger's technology. The idea that I got from this is that nobody can replicate most of it and some of the claims, such as anti-gravity are not well substantiated. Coats does discuss the fact that Schauberger liked egg shapes and he gives enough information that you could write a computer program to design most any egg shape you like if you have a little math and modeling ability. One of the key concepts is that water does not like to flow in straight lines. It likes to flow in curves and spirals. This is why rivers usually curve so much. He shows a study showing that Schauberger designed pipes that gave either zero or negative resistance at certain flow rates. The negative resistance is the basis of possible free energy or anti-gravity, as I understand his work. I found this interesting but I got the impression no one knows how to reproduce these effects and I am not sure that Schauberger could "engineer" a system. His work was based on experience and intuition.

One thing that interested me was the strong similarity between the way water and electric plasma's behave. I suspect both water and electricity are based on more fundamental physical forces such as telluric currents that move this way and cause life to take the forms it takes.

This is an interesting book but it is far more qualitative than technical.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understand and how to treat water. September 21, 2005
By Ydrebir
If somebody have some interest in water must read that book.

It give great insights of how we should consider water and how to use it.Schauberger is the pioneer on what really water is,and with all of other things i read on that subject i think this is the one to start with.Many research today lead to the way Schauberger saw water many years ago.It prove too that you don't need to be a scientist to understand water.Great reading.

Bruno.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good Schauberger book January 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
Coats' work, Living Energies... is one more excellent book about Viktor Schauberger and his life. Dealing more with his work than the man himself ( although it certainly doesn't ignore the personal side of Schauberger ) I found it both interesting and informative, having already read books by four other authors on the subject.

I recommend it to anyone who has discovered Viktor Schauberger and would like to know about him and what he has done.

4.0 out of 5 stars very interesting September 7, 2009
this book is really something interesting, it's very well detailed troughout.
On the critical side i have to say that many sentences in this one got me really confused, the writing style could have been better than this...though it was interesting...i suggest this reading to anyone who's willing to read up new concepts with an open mind, this is pure frontier science, great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should read this! November 11, 2005
By TMC
This is one of my all time favorite books--even though much of it I had to read and re-read several times to get a clear understanding of some of the points it makes. I believe everyone should read this...several times---it has some truly fascinating information in it and is an excelent book to really get you thinking and appreciating the nature of this planet we live on!
