The American Connection. Viktor Schauberger’s Death

This was the situation when two Americans came to visit Schauberger in the winter of 1957/58. The contact had been made through one of the newspapers that worked most energetically for the formation of the international movement for implosion. Schauberger’s health had deteriorated during the winter and he occasionally said he thought he had not much longer to live. He became more and more troubled and resdess, and he made despairing efforts to solve the problems that were preventing the implosion machine from working properly. What happened then is described by his old friend and associate, Aloys Kokaly, head of the German biotechnical institute.

Last year, while on a lecture tour through South Germany and Austria, I visited Viktor Schauberger in Bad Ischl...

Fantasy or Reality?

In 1956 the Austrian author and occultist Leopold Brandstatter wrote the book Implosion instead of Explosion. The author wanted, through this book, to publicize the name of Viktor Schauberger to a wider public, and to generate opinion against the increasing nuclear danger. The book attempted to show that there was already an alternative, which did not threaten life, to the so-called ‘peaceful’ power. With the best intentions, Brandstatter’s speculative approach clearly coloured the content of his book. He had reworked his long interviews with Viktor Schauberger to fit his understanding of the meaning of Schauberger’s discoveries. The result was a mixture of facts and fantasy. The critical eye was put off by the occult language and the fantastic descriptions of implosion power...

Experiments at the Technical College in Stuttgart

In 1952 the federal university concerned with the management of water resources asked Professor Franz Popel of the college to undertake certain experiments to test Viktor Schauberger’s theories about water. When Walter and Viktor Schauberger came to participate in the experiments, Professor Popel was unwilling to go through with them. He told minister Kumpf that Schauberger’s reasoning went against the laws of mech­anics, and that he considered the tests could not provide any technically useful results. Kumpf agreed with Professor Popel, but he still wanted the experiments carried out, so that Schauberger’s fantasies would finally be discredited.

The experiments got under way, and it was the character­istics of water motion that were first...

Biological and Spiritual Breakdown or a New Revolution

Schauberger’s hopes lay with the young. In the midst of his despair he thought he could discern some indication that the youth might refuse to support technological development

When one sees the youth today refusing to take the broad road to destruction, there is hope for mankind. But this is not enough. Young people will only start acting when the cause of our present chaos has been uncovered. This will not solve our problems, as the co-called experts will do all they can to protect their way of life and their position in society. However, even this conservatism could be over­come if it were possible to localise the problems, so that one could be disentangled from another and tackled separately...

Death Technology and the False Culture

With increasing bitterness, Schauberger realized that his attempts to alert ‘the establishment’ to the breakdown of the ecological order were achieving little result Nor had he had any success in his attempts to get scientists to stop their technology of mass suicide. His only hope was that one day human beings generally would wake up and force a change.

The longing for Nature, strong, silent and healthy, is the vital phenomenon of our time, and is the counterbalance to an inorganic civilisation, which we mistakenly describe as culture. The present civilisation is the work of man, who has built up in his own autocratic way a superficial world which threatens to destroy him...

The Repulsator and ‘Noble’ Compost

To Schauberger, as we have seen, the growth process was above all a question of energy. He understood growth as a balancing process between geospheric energy and atmospheric energy. He saw the plant as the end product of energies meeting each other above the insulation layer at surface level. Thus all his attempts to encourage growth were devoted to increasing the soil’s energy, and to encouraging the build-up and preservation of the insulation ‘skin’. He rejected all activity that removed energy from the ground and damaged the insulation. Consequently he was, for example, a vigorous opponent of Thomas-phosphate,51 a product of the blast fhrnace which drains the soil of strength. When it is introduced to the soil it tried to compensate for this by attracting new energy...

The Spiral Plough

Schauberger also wondered if the conventional plough even functioned biologically correctly. Here, also, his ideas on the

importance of natural motion were relevant. It occurred to him that soil should be directed into a centripetal motion when ploughed, and mis led him to develop the ‘spiral plough’, though this never passed the model stage. Its principle of turning the soil was much the same as that used by the burrowing mole...

Iron or Copper Equipment in Farming

In the 1930 s Schauberger was invited by King Boris of Bulgaria to examine the reasons for the great decline in that country’s farming production. During his trip through the countryside he noticed that in the areas populated by the Turks, the harvests were more plentiful than elsewhere. It was here that the old wooden plough was still used. The rest of the country had replaced these with modern iron ploughs imported from Germany as part of a general modernizing of Bulgarian agriculture. The first steam ploughs had also been introduced. Schauberger drew the logical conclusion that the reduced cropping was a consequence of the introduction of iron ploughs, but it was not until later that he developed his theory of the detrimental effect of iron machinery on agriculture...
