When water is subjected to Vivaldi's Four Seasons, it takes on the appearance of a beautiful snowflake. When subjected to heavy metal music it takes on a hideous forum. When the word "love" is taped to a jar of water, it becomes a beautiful snowflake. When the words "I hate you, I want to kill you" are taped to a jar of water, it takes on a hideous form.

Refudiation from UC Santa Cruz particle physicist Bruce Schumm

Dr. Emoto claims his research has been submitted to 150 peer reviewed journals. I have hired Google Answers to find just ONE submission to an accredited US peer reviewed scientific journal.

I belong to a church that this man is speaking at all around the US. I would like very much to bring him down with hard scientific evidence. It's a sham.

Thanks for your post. I had never heard about this one.

uhh it looks like random crystals form in there and then you go searching for one that suits your needs and go "hey look satan formed when i played marylin manson!". they dont show a wide sample of crystals from the same sample lol

Masaru Emoto - Water Experiments


I have found that he was accepted into one peer reviewed journal, albeit alternative medicine. I have ordered it and will try to read through it best I can and let you know what I find. Admittedly I am way out of my league reading scientific research on my own like this.

I have reviewed the article. It was a "photo essay" submitted to the
The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine
Volume 10, Number 1, 2004 pp. 19-21
Photo Essay
Healing With Water by Masaru Emoto, M.D.

Although this is a peer reviewed journal, his particular entry it seems was not reviewed as it as not even submitted as a scientific article. It is indeed a photo essay comparable to a high school science project. It can be downloaded at liebertonline.com for $29

I enlisted the help of Google Answers to even find his submission. The details of those conversations are at http://answers.google.com/answers/th...ew?id=511382#a

Believe it or not he is traveling the world and making big bucks with his water show. Does anyone know how I can go about having the experiment duplicated? I can't print his article because it's copyrighted. But all you need is water samples, a photographic microscope from 200x to 500x, masking tape, pen, freezer able to keep steady temperature at -5 Celsius.

I have actually seen this guy's book, he is trying to state water is a "living" sentient thing (having no other words to put there). So he says water gives different responses to the various stimuli. My response to his book was "ooo pretty pictures" considering it was written in japanese lol. But even if vibrations could influence the crystal structure of water I would doubt it would be so dramatic and personified.

Second thing is, lets look at the cooky side of things. Ok for arguement's sake I accept water is living and is sentient (and all that..) but why would it demonstrate a reaction which is so human..making faces. That just doesnt add up, if you start singing at a dog it will bark but not say "dont quite your day job".

Masaru Emoto's Website
Address:http://www.masaru-emoto.net/english/etruth.html

I was poking around his site and read something called "Why the corpses of crows are never found" at the above link. His belief seems to be that most animals are taken bodily into the spiritual plane after death, leaving no corpse. For some odd reason he doesn't seem to have heard of the process of decay.

No one has yet mentioned that he has received a lot of publicity because he was one of the "experts" spoken to in the widely seen movie "What the <Bleep>". The movie was actually an interesting take, and a nice presentation of some of the older ideas of books like Capra's Tao of Physics, reconciling Eastern religious thoughts and science. But some of the opinions were presented uncritically, and some of them, like Masaru Emoto's, certainly need intensive debunking.

I wonder what happens if you play a heavy metal song... that is also a love song?

I thought I saw this debunked in this forum, but I guess not. That link posted by cybermonster is a good one

Isn't that kinda similar to clouds. Sometimes people say they see the devil's face or something in a cloud formation. But can't you find anything you want in a cloud with a little imagination and if you stare up at the sky long enough. and I dunno, but when I listen to Vivaldi's Four Seasons, since its such a great peace, I feel a sense of happiness and tranquility anyway.

The photos show a distorted ice crystal provenient from polluted water and a wonderful snowflake obtained from the same water, after a prayer.
I would like to know if Dr. Emoto would drink from the prayed polluted water.

He would be spewing filth from both ends instead of just the one he talks through.

Polluted water? You mean he adds a number of different freezing nuclei to water and is surprised they have an effect on crystal formation?

Exactly! Look at some pictures of crystals at This site.
Photo 3 shows the irregular shape obtained by freezing polluted water, while photo 4 shows a crystal obtained from the same water after fusion of the ice and prayer from a budhist monk.
I am not an expert in the subject, but I believe that after freezing the pollutants were separated from the water, so that when it was frozen again the several freezing nuclei were not present anymore. The pryer has nothing to do with it.
As for the ice formed while submited to hard rock music, I believe that the agitation of the molecules did affect the crystal formation.

There is a spiritualist coming to my town Sunday. He will bless a polluted river in an attempt to affect its nature as was (perhaps) demonstrated in Emoto's water experiments.

I don't expect any questions to be answered scientifically, however is there anything you would like me to watch for and report back on as I attend the event?

You could ask for the guy to drink the blessed water.
