Viktor Schauberger

Viktor Schauberger (30 June 1885 to 25 September 1958) was an Austrian forester, environmentalist and inventor, who was just like his contemporaries Nikola Tesla and Wilhelm Reich far before his time.

Already at a young age, he refused to partake in traditional education and preferred to spend his time in the woods, where he discovered many a revolutionary finding by primarily observing water.

Wooden slideHis first big success came in 1922, when he managed to drive logs extremely efficiently from higher altitude forests into the valley on innovatively constructed water slides. He received the promised award for his achievements and of course a fair share of envy from traditionally educated engineers. The water slides efficiently served their purpose in Austria, Bavaria and Yugoslavia for quite a few years, however, Viktor was disappointed to find out that his invention resulted in clear-cutting as well as the complete degradation of the natural environment.

In the years from 1928 to 1935, Viktor Schauberger dedicated a lot of his time to developing a device for the production of living water, i.e. water with an enhanced structure as well as all the necessary minerals. According to his theory, spring water is the optimal choice for life and health, since it rises in an unspoilt environment. Due to human interaction, the number of intact water springs has reduced. On the other hand, the structure of water has been destroyed due to its unnatural movement through straight pipes made of man-made materials. The first built device may have been inconvenient for handling, however, it has cemented Schauberger’s reputation as the “water magician” that he had already gained with his water slides.

He was also active in the field of waterway restoration – based on Schauberger’s findings, several rivers in Austria in which the water had a destructive effect have recently been restored.

His further research increasingly leant towards the field of energy. Consequently, he developed the implosion theory. It states that energy generation by means of an explosion (petrol engines, nuclear energy) is destructive and harmful to the environment. Implosion on the other hand means an increased concentration of energy. Typical examples of such energy in the natural environment are a whirlpool and a whirlwind.

For Schauberger, World War II was highly unpleasant since he was forced to join in the German Army. Afterwards, his desire was to contribute to the healing of the Earth and the restoration of nature. That era fostered many of his inventions, such as copper as well as a special soil-energizing plough.

In 1958, an investment fund lured him to the USA. Viktor saw his emigration as an opportunity for the development of his non-centralized and environmentally friendly energy generation by means of implosion, however, he later realized that the investors’ intentions were not fair. He was forced to give up all of his paperwork and prototypes in order to be able to return to his fatherland, where he passed away soon after his return.

His work was continued by his son Walter, who also founded the PKS Institute in Bad Ischl in Austria. At the PKS Institute, some of Viktor’s inventions can be seen. Every two years, it also hosts the ICOST conference, in which we participated in June 2012.

Viktor Schauberger was certainly one of the most visible pioneers in the field of water and energy research. Since his philosophy (and inventions) differ significantly from generally accepted know-how, his works are known to a lesser extent. But it certainly doesn’t mean that it doesn’t deserve our attention. In this short article, it is impossible to cover the whole life’s work of Viktor Schauberger, therefore we would just like to point out the work Living Water by Olof Alexandersson. There are of course several other books available, but the aforementioned one covers his works the most extensively. Anyone who wishes to indulge in further research can also view numerous videos dedicated to his work on YouTube.

Team Flaska constantly follows Schauberger’s observation and nature imitation philosophy. His work also answers our question, how it is possible to produce higher-quality strawberries merely with the aid of structured water. Today, the TPS technology ensures that every Flaska user has their own water spring.
