Thoughts and Reality

Masaru Emoto is a Japanese researcher and author. Dr. Masaru Emoto’s water crystal experiments consist of exposing water to different words, pictures, or music, and then freezing and examining the response in the form of aesthetics of the resulting crystals with microscopic photography.

It is claimed that depending on the different focused intentions, water appears to ‘change its expression’ and images of the water crystals are beautiful (in one study beautiful crystals were defined as symmetric, aesthetically pleasing shapes) or unsightly depending upon whether the words or thoughts were positive or negative.

The children’s version of the book ‘The Message from Water’ is available on the net. It is available in different languages.

Commentators have criticized the research for insufficient experimental controls, and for lack of sharing of sufficient details of the approach. In other experiments scientists have not been able to either accept or reject the findings.

At least there is proof that thoughts and feelings affect physical reality and it would be preferable to maintain an environment of positive thoughts, words and actions.

FANTASTIC! The scientific community might, for reasons justified/unjustified, label Dr Emoto's water crystal experiments as 'pseudoscience', however for me the results are both terrific and terrifying. Terrific because it once again demonstrates that thoughts might perhaps be the singular most important factor ht shaping man's destiny and environment. Terrifying because it gives me chills to think how much destruction we wreak, in accountable ways, through unctrolled, negative thought process.

It really awes a person to think about the implications of these findings.
