what do you think of some of the water crystal studies. I can see your points about the reasons why Rastafari dont deal with pork and such and I know that being that I dont have much scientific knowledge it probably comes accross as me being a bit of a lightweight bringing the water crystal tests of Dr Emoto.... but I can see a premise to how the biological 'reality' could be moved to a higher level of evolution (granted if one takes such studies seriously)
With regard to the molecular structure of water, our intent (thoughts), words, ideas and music have a profound healing or destructive effect on the water.
Since the human is 70% water — Ultimately it means that what we think creates our reality, not just emotionally but physically.
Since the planet is also 70% water these experiments have profound implications for the environment also — Could this mean that we could ‘think’ a polluted stream clean again?
Since asking the question I've learned that these experiments are indeed being done in Japan through Mr Emoto's work. Three hundred people, usually led by someone proficient in focus and meditation (a buddhist monk for example) will gather around a polluted stream and focus healing and wellbeing onto the water for approximately one hour. Mr Emoto has reportedly documented these on film which I have not yet seen. According to eyewitnesses the water would become visibly clearer approximately 15 minutes after the meditation.
If this is indeed the case ... the possiblities are endless.
Is it possible that the reasoning from the positive emotions and knowing the root intentions of our ideas (and scientific studies) could change even biological, perceived absolutes. I kno, its fluffy but how does science explain spontaneous healing of diseases that are apparently terminal? Just some ideas.
