As you know, our next Intention Experiment is going to attempt to change the structure of water. So that begs the question: what is ‘structured’ water?
I asked Dr. Rustum Roy and Manju Rao of Pennsylvania State University to elaborate further on the meaning of structure in water and the implications of our experiments to change water’s structure.
As Manju explained it, the ‘structure’ of water, from a scientific point of view, refers to the molecular arrangements of individual water molecules (which are, you know two atoms of hydrogen and one of oxygen). The molecules form units, or ‘clusters’, which remain stable anywhere from a part of a second to several weeks.
As Dr. Roy explains it, think of water molecules as analogous to individual bricks. When you assemble them into a house, the various rooms you’ve created with bricks put together in a particular fashion are its structure.
In our experiments, we’ll be measuring any changes in the vibration using a well established tool in orthodox science called Raman Spectroscopy. As Manju says, ‘Raman is a very powerful tool as it would give us a clear indication of structural changes between the structured and un-structured waters.’ It does this by examining any changes in the intensity and shape of the molecular bond.
The lab will also use various other tools to determine how 'structuring' affects the properties of water.
Don't forget to register for the experiment on April 26.
