"The Hidden Messages in Water" is an eye-opening theory showing how water is deeply connected to our individual and collective consciousness. Drawing from his own research, scientific researcher, healer, and popular lecturer Dr Masaru Emoto describes the ability of water to absorb, hold and even retransmit human feelings and emotions. Using high-speed photography, he found that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward it. Music, visual images, words written on paper and photographs also have an impact on the crystal structure. Emoto theorizes that since water has the ability to receive a wide range of frequencies, it can also reflect the universe in this manner. He found that water from clear springs and water exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns, while polluted water and water exposed to negative thoughts forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors. Emoto believes that since people are 70 per cent water, and the Earth is 70 per cent water, we can heal our planet and ourselves by consciously expressing love and goodwill.
About the Author
Masaru Emoto is an internationally renowned Japanese researcher who has gained worldwide acclaim. Emoto is a graduate of the Yokohama Municipal University's department of humanities and science with a focus on International Relations, and he received certification as a Doctor of Alternative Medicine from the Open International University. Emoto's research has visually captured the structure of water at the moment of freezing, and through high-speed photography he has shown the direct consequences of destructive thoughts and the thoughts of love and appreciation on the formation of water crystals. The revelation that our thoughts can influence water has profound implications for our health and the well being of the planet.

Being a photographer of some 60 years experience, I commenced an appraisal of the book by studying the images of crystals that go to make a large proportion of the content. I have to admit to finding the captions puzzling. For example, page 17. Two images related to subjecting water samples to performances (recordings, presumably!) of Beethoven's 5th and 6th Symphonies.
First observation: both works take over 30 minutes to perform. Are we to understand the entire work was "used" in these so-called experiments? If so, then I should think it difficult to fathom to what the water might be responding; the orchestration, the tempo, the volume or just about anything?! (It is worth noting that interpretations for performances vary greatly: Toscanini tended to take a fast tempo, Furtwangler a much slower and varied tempo (rubato) and so on. Human response to interpretations vary, so quite what the poor water molecules made of it all I could not begin to imagine.
I therefore approached the text in a state of some trepidation. The Introduction and Prologue got off to a reasonable start for I am inclined to agree with the author in that the "world" is in a bit of mess, mostly as a result of human practices. Problems soon arose for me in subsequent chapters through the frequent allusion to God, "cosmos", “soul”, “universe” etc. (Bear in mind this is a translation from the author's own language.) I tend to be put off when such words are used without qualification.
Masaru Emoto may be clear in his own mind as to what he understands by the use of the word “cosmos” as he is about the meaning of God but he needs to be more focused in his delivery for the book to be taken seriously. Of course he is not alone by any means when making sweeping statements, almost without exception the words God and universe are banded about with no attempt at a definition for the words themselves.
Things did not improve as I progressed through the book, I'm afraid. One could quote numerous examples that would convince the intelligent reader that whatever else the book might be it certainly is NOT a scientific treatise.
Let us sample verbatim from page 71:
A physicist conducted an experiment in which he studied how the positions of the stars affected water. Using water containing various minerals, he tested how easily paper soaked up the water when the stars were in certain positions.
What he found was that when Saturn has a large influence on Earth, lead responded by being soaked up by the paper, while other elements such as copper, silver and steel showed little or no response.
We can deduce from this that there is a close connection between Saturn and lead. Metals resonate the emotions and moods of people, and so the next logical deduction is that Saturn is closely related to the emotions of anger.
END of QUOTE.
Without wishing to appear scornful I have to say this is total hogwash.
“Stars” – their positions in relation to what? Their Right Ascension (R.A.) and declination (dec.)? Their altitude and azimuth at a given time and place?*
Next we have PLANET Saturn mentioned as if it were a “star”!!
*One may surmise that what is implied here may be the apparent placement of the PLANETS – in this instance Saturn – against the background of the constellations of the zodiac.
Incidentally, the third paragraph puts me in mind of a student (I lectured for London University in astronomy and the history of mathematics) who would insist that the Sun is a red cabbage!
Page 72 expands on these fantasies, thus: The number of planets in the solar system is 9, a number when multiplied by 12 gives us 108. Using the periodic table (of elements), we may someday be able to identify which planets correlate to which elements.
END of QUOTE.
The number of KNOWN planets in the solar system is now given as 8 since Pluto has been relegated to the title of “dwarf planet”. All quite arbitrary, I would have to suggest.
The human brain may imagine what it pleases. Concepts are the fruitful products of our imaginations. In this way we all have ideas on what the words God, soul and cosmos etc. may come to signify to us as individuals.
Our perception of the external world—the physical world outside our bodies—is a synthesis from inherent knowledge and experience, teaching, indoctrination and so forth.
Unfortunately I have to report that little of what the author has to offer with this book holds water for me!
Note: The book lacks an index.
Looking at this in isolation may not give much meaning, but when you look at the connection we as humans have with the planet in its entirety (read the earthing book) this all made absolute sense.
