Viktor Schauberger was one of the first to put in a scientifically verifiable framework a study of natural processes set free from the constraints of rationalism. He has widened our understanding of our place in the world by describing a worldview of a natural science that includes these experiences without recourse to scientific, religious or philosophical dogma. By understanding how Nature works, we can begin to relate our experiences to a much wider and more exciting worldview.
Rachel Carson, who is credited with having initiated the environmental movement with her book Silent Spring, was a brave woman for taking on the multinational corporations. Schauberger is all the braver for taking on our conventional worldview. There must be a fundamental change in the way we see the world including our environmental policies , before change is possible.
Have Viktor's warnings been vindicated? It is over 45 years since his untimely death, and much of what he prophesied has come to pass even earlier than he foresaw.
There was some hope before Septem- ber 11,, that environmental awareness was gaining ground, if slowly. Recognition of the critical imbalances we have created in our atmosphere and of the urgent need to change our priorities from consumption to conservation was starting to spread. Now we seem to have backtracked a generation and we can't even agree to imple- ment the kind of cuts in carbon dioxide emissions that are essential to avoid catastrophic climate change.
We feel that Schauberger's perceptions are a vital key to under- standing where our culture has gone wrong and that our future as a species depends on being able to reconnect with the natural processes he rediscovered. We shall, therefore, bring into twenty-first century relevance his views of how Nature works and where our society has gone wrong, to see what we can learn from his insights. Viktor has a singular way of deprecating our culture, as the fol- lowing comment on our conditioning reveals: Humanity has become accustomed to relate everything to itself anthropocentrism.
In the process we have failed to see that real truth is a slippery thing upon which the perpetually refor- mulating mind passes judgment almost imperceptibly. In the main all that is then left behind is whatever was drilled into our brain with much trouble and effort, and to which we cling.source
- Hidden Nature The Startling Insights of Viktor Schauberger by Alick Bartholomew
To give rein to free thought, to allow our minds to flow freely and unimpeded, is too fraught with complications. For this rea- son the activity arising from these notions inevitably becomes a traffic in excreta that stinks to high heaven, because its foun- dations were already decayed and rotten from the very begin- ning.
It is no wonder, therefore, that everywhere everything is going wrong. Truth resides only in all-knowing Nature. If we were to pay heed to what Nature requires of us, would we witness a reversal of this observable deterioration, and a gradual coming back into balance of a human society that would eventually be able to live in tune with Nature?
But as in our hubris we believe we are at the peak of material human achievement, there is a reawakening of the human spirit, and a great need is being reborn to reconnect with Nature, with our source. This book attempts to encourage and nurture this need. Towards a science of Nature The majority of people in the UK oppose the genetic modification of food because they know in their hearts it is against Nature.
The policy is being driven by the commercial interests of big business supported by a compliant political climate. Accountability is apparently not an issue. The national debate on GM held in Britain in showed that most people are deeply disturbed by the arrogance of the view that Man can do anything he wants on this Earth. But they have no sci- ence to turn to for rebuttal.
What is needed is a Science of Nature to supplant the misguided science presently taught in our schools and universities. We need to work with a holistic view of Nature as omnipotent on the Earth, whose laws govern us humans as well and which we flout at our peril — in brief, a Nature with which we must learn to cooperate with humility. What are these laws of Nature?
How are we to know what is our place, and what is demanded of us? Viktor Schauberger excelled as a teacher of the science of Nature. He describes and illustrates, as few have done, how Nature works, with its marvellous and complex processes at the heart of the evolution of consciousness. Viktor Schauberger is known at present only to a small, holisti- cally-inclined audience that has a strong commitment to environ- mental issues, to organic growing or to the development of alternative energy sources.
Much of the literature on Schauberger is sometimes difficult to follow for the less committed. We hope that the less technical approach of our book will facil- itate for a broader audience how indispensable are Schauberger's insights if we wish to understand our present ecological predica- ment.

Viktor Schauberger's Vision Our natural world is essentially an indivisible unity, but we human beings are condemned to apprehend it from two different directions — through our senses perception or through our minds concep- tual. A child just observes and marvels, but as our rational minds become trained we are taught to interpret what we see, usually through other people's ideas, in order to 'make sense' of our sensory experience. Both are forms of reality, but unless we are able to bring the two aspects meaningfully together, the world will present noth- ing but incomprehensible riddles to us.
This, in fact, is the basic shortcoming of our present human society. It is the great weakness of the prevailing scientific orthodoxy. As Schauberger noted: The majority believes that everything hard to comprehend must be very profound. This is incorrect. What is hard to understand is what is immature, unclear and often false.
The highest wisdom is simple and passes through the brain directly into the heart. Their way was to immerse themselves so deeply in the world of pure observation and experience, that out of these perceptions the con- cepts would speak for themselves. Viktor Schauberger possessed this rare gift. As a result of this, more than anyone else of his time he foresaw, as early as the s, the environmental crises in which we are now engulfed. Viktor's forebears had a long tradition of caring for the welfare of the natural forest and its wildlife in the Austrian Alps.
Although he was born into a family that cherished unspoilt Nature, Viktor, like most pioneers, was the rebel amongst them. Born one of nine children, he seemed to get on well with his sib- lings. His father, nicknamed after the legendary giant 'Ruebesahl,' as he was 6' 8" tall, did not relate well to the young Viktor. He resented the young man rejecting his paternal advice to improve himself with a modern academic training. His brothers acquiesced with their father. The one to whom Viktor remained closest was his 1.
But he told how both his parents believed in the healing power of water, and of their insight that the quality and transportive power of water in a stream was particularly strong on a cold night, and more so under a full Moon. Viktor was a dreamy child, but was endowed with an extraordi- nary quality of observation, a keen intellect, and evident intuitive and psychic abilities.

As a boy he would spend hours by himself in the forests, exploring streams, watching the animals and studying the plants. He was able to experience first hand what he had first heard from his family, and more, about the life of the natural forest and its creatures. He had no interest in the academic path and declined the opportunity to go to forestry college.
He did some more practical training instead, and served an apprenticeship under an older forest warden. Married young, Viktor moved to a post in a virgin forest 93 miles km south into the mountains. Four weeks after his son was born, Viktor was drafted in into the Kaiser's army. In this large wilderness area, almost untouched by man, Schauberger was able to study how Nature works when left undisturbed. Here biodiversity was undamaged, with many mag- nificent trees, an abundance of wildlife, and unspoilt streams teem- ing with fish and other creatures.
The water wizard Water was always Viktor's fascination. One day, accompanied by his foresters, he came to a remote upland plateau where there was a leg- endary spring that emerged from a dilapidated dome-like struc- ture. Schauberger ordered it to be pulled down for safety reasons. One of the older foresters then warned him that if the structure were removed the spring would dry up.
Taking note of the old forester's advice, and as a verifying experiment, Schauberger requested that the structure be carefully dismantled, with each stone numbered and its place marked. When Viktor passed again some two weeks later, he noted that the spring had indeed dried up due to exposure to the Sun's rays. Immediately he ordered the structure to be care- fully rebuilt and a few days later the spring began to flow again. This taught him that water liked to flow in cool darkness.
Viktor's abiding interest was to discover how to generate energy using Nature's own methods. He worked out how a trout is able to screw its way up a waterfall by hitching a ride on strong levitative currents, and using this principle, the first generator he developed was the 'trout turbine. The above diagram illustrates this amazing phenomenon Fig. The trout is holding its station in mid steam where the water is coldest, densest and has most potential energy.
Viktor studied the gills of the fish and found what he thought were guide vanes which would direct the water flow into a powerful backwards vortex cur- rent. Its shiny scales minimize friction with the water, but they also create scores more of little vortices that amplify the upstream counter current, particularly towards the tail, which cancel out the pressure on the fish's snout.
