A Midwestern Doctor
In [a previous] article, I reviewed the lineage of scientists who, for over a century, all came to a similar conclusion: water can exist in a structured state where it behaves like a liquid crystal. Most of them figured this out by observing cells and noticing water within cells, especially that the water in the vicinity of a cellular surface (e.g., a protein) was different from the normal (termed “bulk”) water we are used to working with.
Gerald Pollack built upon this century of observations, and eventually determined that when a negatively charged surface is present, and ambient electromagnetic energy such as light exists (to some extent sound can also fulfill this role), the water will assemble itself into layers of o set hexagonal sheets with the formula H3O2. This structure has a significant degree of solidity, and will expel most things from entering it (e.g., polystyrene microspheres), including the displaced hydrogen atoms (as it is H1.5O not H2O). These displaced positively charged H atoms (henceforth referred to as protons), in turn assemble immediately outside this lattice, thereby creating a pH and charge gradient which can be measured.
… Cells depend on this water, so they contain a large number of surfaces from which the water can form.
