Photo of the Day

They say every snow flake is unique.

Of course, few of us bother to look.  Here’s a great shot of a snowflake.


Snow flakes are actually very cool (!) but not well understood.

Here is a Discovery Channel piece on Ken Libbrecht who studies them:


Dr. Masaru Emoto from Japan has taken it a bit further.  He asserts that the intentions of people can affect the way the snow flakes grow.

Dr. Masaru Emoto was born in Japan and is a graduate of the Yokohama Municipal University and the Open International University as a Doctor of Alternative Medicine. His photographs were first featured in his self-published books Messages from Water 1 and 2. The Hidden Messages in Water was first published in Japan, with over 400,000 copies sold internationally.

What has put Dr. Emoto at the forefront of the study of water is his proof that thoughts and feelings affect physical reality. By producing different focused intentions through written and spoken words and music and literally presenting it to the same water samples, the water appears to “change its expression”.

Essentially, Dr. Emoto captured water’s ‘expressions.’ He developed a technique using a very powerful microscope in a very cold room along with high-speed photography, to photograph newly formed crystals of frozen water samples. Not all water samples crystallize however. Water samples from extremely polluted rivers directly seem to express the ‘state’ the water is in.

Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.

Load of rubbish?  Check it out for yourself on his web site. (WARNING: turn sound down first – some pages have some self-starting vids)


The fact that a lot of the world we live in is some form of water (oceans, rivers, fresh food, clouds, animals and us), it would make sense to understand  it as much as we can.

    Utterly amazing. The physics involved in this are beyond comprehension.
