A while back I watched, "What The Bleep Do We Know!?", a movie about quantum physics and the true nature of reality. There was a segment I found particularly intriguing, in which multiple microscope slides of water were shown. Each slide was accompanied by a short message. I believe originally, all the water was the same. However, at some point, a group of people was gathered and asked to focus on a single idea, which was represented by a specific short message. One idea, "Peace," was focused on, and a picture of a sample of water nearby was taken. They did the same thing for "Love" and a few other positive ideas. All the slides of the "positive" water samples contained beautiful crystalline structures. But there was one that looked a sickly yellow. Its accompanying message? "You make me sick. I will kill you."
That just blew my mind! The whole point was that your thoughts and feelings have a definite impact on the molecular structure of water. And since we're made up of 70% water ourselves, it is important to get our minds under control. The segment of the film I believe also had a sample of holy water, that was as beautiful under the microscope as had been the other "positive" samples.
So that's all well and good, I thought. Months went by and I hadn't heard anything relating to the concept of, "Think this and your water will do that." Until recently.
Yesterday I stumbled across a website called "Aquafrequencies: Super Health Through Light Frequency Software." I read about it at a forum, and then decided to see what the site was about. Apparently the creators behind the site have developed a software program that is used to charge up water with cures to various problems. Overweight? Use the fat loss function. Smoker? Use the function to quit smoking.
At first, I thought this looked cool. Interesting. Promising, even. After all, some of the information they provide is specialized knowledge that conveys how informed and educated these people are. The software itself is free to try for 15 days, but costs $30 for every 15 days after that, or $50 for every month. Or, if you were really hardcore, you could pay $300 for an unlimited license.
So I figured, wow, if it's really worth $300, there must be something to this! But of course, you can set the price of plain rocks at $1,000,000 per stone.
How does it work? Apparently, from what I can tell, you load the program and set up what you want it to do to your water, and the level of "power output." Then you put a glass of the purest water you can find near your computer's monitor, and focus on it. You think about the water, and imagine how you want it to change. "Fitness water…Water that will make me lean and toned…Happy water…Improve my mood…"
Sure, but how does the program work? Apparently it uses the light output in your monitor to send specific "frequencies" through space to alter the structure of the water. And you can do this remotely, if you'd believe it. From one room, you can charge up your bathwater. Then charge up a glass of water. Then go take a bath and drink from the glass at the same time.
Supposedly many people have had "miraculous" results with this program. I was reminded of an episode of one of my old favorite shows, "Sliders." In one of the later seasons, Quinn Mallory had fused with an alternate (an different-looking) version of himself to provide an exit for Jerry O'Connell and an entrance for a new actor. The character's name was changed to just "Mallory." In one episode, Mallory drank some special water containing nanobots that cure all ailments and communicate through frequencies of light. He then left the universe where he gained the water and visited a new universe, where he started a cult. See, the nanobots get into your brain. If someone else drinks the special water, they can communicate with you through the use of the nanobots and invisible beams of light. Mallory built a community with a single consciousness around the special water. Aquafrequencies also uses special water as a cure-all. Coincidence? Probably. Or is it?
Back to the forum. One person mentioned how this reminds them of the "magnet craze" that swept the populous a few years back. "Magnets cure everything!" Lots of people believed, and reported amazing benefits. But now that "industry" is suffering from the same woes experienced by a found-out snake-oil salesman. The person at the forum said they figure Aquafrequencies is just as bogus.
I've noticed a few things on the Aquafrequencies site that struck me as "extremely lame." Basically, they say, "If you use our program, then X should happen, which is good. But don't be alarmed if nothing happens at all, because there's a reason for that." So they make an excuse for if and when their system won't work. But why would they need to, if it really worked?
Here is the extensive, 6-page instruction manual. On page 2, it explains how to adjust the "power output." One suggestion says, "Start the slider at either 0% or 100% and move
the slider until it feels right." Sounds like things are starting to get a little less than concrete.
A little lower on the page are instructions for what to do with "prepped" water. "Drink the water, and note that this will also increase the effectiveness of both Bathing and Showering." Great! Let's get clean! But I'm sure they really mean, "It will increase the effectiveness of whatever you were trying to do, whether it be lose weight, quit smoking, or improve your skin." So why didn't they say that, instead of some weak generalization?
There's a page with ideas for "experiments" you can do, like "prep" some water and give it to your cat. They say, "Chances are the pet is going to prefer the treated one, although in some cases they might know something that we don't (like, I don't want that one – it has too much energy!)." What??!! The whole point is to give the water "energy," and now they're saying "watch out for too much?"
In "What The Bleep Do We Know!?" they had an entire group of people focus their minds, and they successfully changed the structure of multiple samples of water. A priest could also do this. So all it really takes is incredibly focused thought. I have no idea what the point of the Aquafrequencies program is. It seems superfluous.
Some of the benefits that have been reported include enhanced mood, more energy, and a oneness with oneself. Why? The use of the software entails drinking pure water and thinking pleasant thoughts. Whether the program works or not is uncertain, but what is certain is that drinking lots of pure water and thinking positive are two tried and tested methods for improving one's life. Maybe Aquafrequencies figured out that not many people do that, and that those people would allow some piece of software to steal the credit from two basic, natural principles. For shame! Unless it really does work…If you enjoyed this post, I'd be delighted to have you as a subscriber to my RSS feed.
