Coincidence? Or perhaps not! Standing as we are on the threshold of a new era, the first dawning of a new age, there is an air of expectancy of things imminent and better. In a certain sense this has psychologically programmed us with a willingness to embrace new concepts, to inaugurate and accept far-reaching change. It is also a time to reflect upon the very foundations of what we call 'civilisation' and to reassess their validity and where they have led, taking the good things with us and leaving the bad ones behind. So it seems timely that the radical departure in energy concepts presented here, should be made available now, when the tide of human development is turning and the impetus of this renewing flood can be harnessed to launch Viktor Schauberger's pioneering discoveries into a world more ready than ever before to implement them. At a time also, when the activities of humanity are increasingly seen to be on a head-on collision course with Nature's processes. An alarming increase in the scope and ferocity of so-called 'natural disasters' is forcing us to realise that the future is no longer secure; that other solutions to those presently proposed must quickly be found to remedy the present state of affairs. In my view, these will be largely ineffective unless Viktor Schauberger's important contributions towards the production of virtually free energy and high quality drinking water - the foundation of healthy life - are not taken into account a priori.
What we are concerned with here is an inversion of all that has hitherto been held to be true scientifically and technologically. As obvious as it is true that one cannot wash one's clothes in the same water that soiled them, so too can no new ecotechnology be founded on existing 'laws' and dogma, which have so disastrously failed. While such new departures in thought are usually referred to as 'revolutions', what is involved here is an 'evolution'. This is no form of repetition, a re-cycling of outworn concepts and processes, but an upward movement to totally new and higher levels not only of perception, but also of application of systems of an entirely new dimension and order. It is a movement away from the ceaseless round, the endless unproductive turning or 'revolution' of the wheel, the chief symbol of our technology and a derivative of the geometrical element of the circle. While progress of a sort is made as the wheel turns, the wheel itself does not evolve and always returns upon itself. Having no in-built capacity for change and transformation it effectively contributes nothing to real evolutive progress.
