I received the following letter sent from a visitor to my blog, Thought For Food,
I have been meaning to write you ever since I saw one of your video’s. This is not a criticism note or calling you snake-oil salesman .
It is merely a note to have you read up on dissolved air in water. A fish swims in water- A fish breathes oxygen-Can we see the oxygen? No because it is dissolved. When you deoxygenate/degasify water. The surface tension of the water goes down. This is probably more efficient for farming and making better use of the H2O. It is probably not good for creatures that live in water and require those gases to live. However it is not structured water.
Greetings Dr. Mike and thank you for writing:
I don’t know what videos you saw, since I’ve done many on the nature of water, including that which is called “structured.” However, for the past 2 years I have referred to the process of vortexing water, taking it through an apparatus that creates one or more “vortex events”. This is not to say that structured water didn’t exist, but that the *state* of being “structured” was dependent upon something else, i.e., motion, speed, rotation, electricity, magnetism, and alignment; all of which happen when water travels through vortex events. Indeed, this is what water does to reset, re-balance, and restore itself.
The term “structure” gives no hint to the forces that are in place to bring it about, or what their dependencies. The more I learned about vortex motion physics, it became clear that “structure” was dependent on motion; not linear, but vortical, as this document from Walter Russell indicates.
When I looked up dissolved air in water, the first dictum that caught my eye from my friends at Engineering Toolbox was, “The amount of air that can be dissolved in water increases with pressure and decreases with temperature.
Vortex motion causes a tremendous increase in pressure within water as it passes through. For example, I have a friend who made his own HHO generators, which liberated oxygen and hydrogen via the application of a small DC current to an anode and cathode array. He could measure the volume of hydrogen gas produced over a given period of time. He was amazed and pleased to see that simply filling his reservoir with water that he ran through a vortex generator increased hydrogen output by 20%. More oxygen is also made available.
By the standard definition of Air (O2) solubility (availability) in water, from a source you would likely respect, we could end any further question about whether vortexing is effective at making more oxygen available. However based on the chart above, it is also important to note that a vortex event is also an ionizing event. In other words, charging (+) and discharging (-) ions are produced as an effect of vortexing. This natural phenomenon, in conjunction with the pressures that are brought to bear on the water stream as it spirals through, makes the liberation of hydrogen and oxygen possible, all by itself, without electrolysis.
You ask whether we can see the oxygen. You can’t see it because it’s dissolved. You wouldn’t see oxygen (or hydrogen) if it was, or was not available. Oxygen and hydrogen, as well as all the other elements that may be present in water, are held together by electrical bonds. When they are bonded to something else, they are unavailable for respiration by plants, animals, or people. Chemical additives, which are often comprised of long, complex chains of elements (like carbon), “snap up” the oxygen ~ up to 6 oxygen ions per carbon, making them unavailable to the plant, animal, or person.
Vortexing water introduces forces that can break long, complex molecular chains. They produce (-) and (+) ions that facilitate liberation and re-association of oxygen, hydrogen, and other elements, into a bioavailable form.
The water in the aquarium pictured below hasn’t been changed in two years due to the effect of vortexing. Algae (which begin to flourish as oxygen levels go down), have not formed. The water is very clear, except for the tiny bubbles that the aquatic life in the tank thrives on. Human life responds well when the same elements are made available.
The rock surfaces are clear, the fish are happy and healthy.
I don’t know why you think that a product that is good for farming (i.e., growing live stuff to be consumed by living beings) would not be beneficial elsewhere, but the benefits are there for plants, animals (in water and out), and people.
“Structure” is a result of vortexing. The ability to hold “structure” is only possible when centripetal forces, which pull inward toward a center, are strong, *and* only possible via high-spin motion. That same motion causes an alignment in election rotation too. All of these factors contribute to water’s higher degree of efficiency; i.e., its ability to deliver the goods more effectively to its intended destination.
I would even wager to guess that placing vortex generators in the fuel and water lines of diesel trucks would improve operational efficiency and be detected by your company’s fleet management system, as vortexing the fuel would increase its combustibility. Vortexing the water would improve heat dissipation, reduce oxidation (rust), and make components (e.g., radiators) last longer.
Thanks again for writing.
Best wishes and Merry Christmas to you too.
