    By Olof Alexandersson

    This can be the tale of a pioneering Austrian naturalist and iconoclast who pointed how you can a very new knowing of the colossal strength of usual power. via learning fish in streams and through heavily staring at the traditional water cycle, Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958) used to be capable of resolve easy difficulties of strength transformation. He observed that glossy guy, with out knowing it, used to be destroying the earth and sabotaging his personal cultures by way of operating opposed to Nature. the entire winning equipment of power iteration - from hydro-electric to nuclear fission - produce destructive long term results at the setting and inspire affliction. Schauberger had a transparent imaginative and prescient of the way fertility can be restored to the earth. As an inventor Schauberger constructed a few creative machines which might revolutionize farming, horticulture, forestry and plane propulsion. He constructed water purification structures, and confirmed how air and water may be harnessed as fuels for plenty of machines. His discovery of implosive strength and diamagnetism had many functional functions, so much of that have but to be constructed.
