Excerpt from the introduction:
Viktor Schauberger (30 June 1885 – 25 September 1958) was born in Austria of a long line of foresters stretching back some four hundred years. He developed a gift for accurate and intuitive observation so great that he was able to perceive the natural energies and other phenomena occurring in Nature, which are still unrecognized by orthodox science. Refusing to attend University at the age of 18, to the fury of his father, Viktor Schauberger left home and spent a long period alone in the high, remote forest, contemplating, pondering and observing any subtle energetic processes taking place in Nature’s laboratory, where they were still undisturbed by human hand. During this period he developed very profound and radical theories, later to be confirmed practically, concerning water, the energies inherent in it and its desired natural form of motion. These eventually earned him the name of ‘The Water Wizard’.

Excerpt from “From the Earthworm Sanatorium”:
Nature is, and will always be, the best and the cheapest teacher. She sees to it that every living thing has its so-called enemy, which eats it with great relish. Thus the goose has its fox, the fly its spider, the mouse its cat, or the snake its adoring buzzard. Ultimately, however, everything, be it human, beast or plant, is consumed by our dear old Mother Earth in order to rejuvenate herself. In this way she is able to provide for the self-renewal of that which, as a ‘later-comer’, creeps and flies on this manure heap and has no idea why it actually lives, has its favourite dishes or is a favourite dish itself.
Viktor Schauberger, 1945
